Licensees can express thoughts on the regulations

The consultation will help the Dutch gambling watchdog to understand what form will be the most suitable for operators. Every casino site is obliged to detect problem gambling cases, analyze them, and take measures to prevent addiction among players. In addition to this, licensees are required to provide reports.
