Dutch Court Rules Loot Boxes are Not Gambling

Dutch court revokes the penalty issued by Kansspelautoriteit to Electronic Arts. The KSA had ruled that EA violated the Dutch Gaming Act by providing gambling products in the video game FIFA. EA argued that the loot boxes and player packs are not gambling because they are part of a wider game and can only be accessed through game play. The court ruled in EA's favour. It also ruled EA did not have to comply with the previous penalty.

Netherlands regulator urges online casinos to lower daily limits; warns Govt. could step in

Netherlands regulator urges online casinos to lower daily limits. Rene Jansen warns the government could step in. Online gambling has been legal in the Netherlands since October 1.

The complete picture of the online market should be expected around July 2022. It is possible that the law could change in order to force the providers to take responsibility. Sweden recently changed the deposit limit and introduced stricter advertising controls.

Regulated Dutch market wide open following high-profile departures

The market for regulated casinos in the Netherlands is more evenly distributed than for illegal ones. The Dutch gambling authority Kansspelautoriteit's goal is to reach 80% channelisation rate by 2024. The study also points out that game and payment providers, affiliates, operators, the KSA and players can assist in channelization drive. It also notes that small-scale illegal casinos could potentially opt not to pay the €1.6 million for a Dutch licence. This could leave players using these unregulated casinos open to uncertified games and an unsafe, non-secure playing environment.

EGBA supports request to re-establish EU Expert Group on gambling

EGBA supports request to re-establish EU Expert Group on gambling. European Gaming and Betting Association (EGba) believes formal and structured regulatory cooperation between EU Member States is even more important to help protect European consumers. Europe's gambling market is worth more than $118.7 billion each year. There is currently no formal framework for regulatory Cooperation at the EU level. The Expert group was disbanded by the Commission in 2018 despite most gambling regulators considering it to be a success. Maarten Haijer, Secretary-General, EGBA stated that there is no EU framework to communicate and tackle the big issues affecting Europe’s online gambling sector.
