Netherlands gaming regulator Kansspelautoriteit have announced that they've launched a new version of Cruks, a self-exclusion program for players in the country.
The updated service will allow players to self-exclude from betting sites in the country for a minimum period of six years, but makes the process a lot easier for punters. The system will have an eight-day reflection period that is being put into place before self-excluded gamblers can play again. There will also be a harder "Gambling Stop" message in the app, replacing the "Play Break" message that's currently present.
The Cruks service launched in 2021 and has registered more than 38,000 players for the minimum exclusion period of six months. The KSA has made it required for casinos and online betting sites to integrate Cruks as a licencing condition.
The refreshed service is available for Dutch players now.
