Will Belgium become one of the most regulated gaming markets?
Belgium was one of the first countries in the EU to regulate online gaming. In 2009 the law was modified to accommodate and regulate the online casinos. There are 10 online casino licences in Belgium.
Belgium's government banned bonuses for casinos in 2019. Online casinos offer a wide variety of promos to their players with cash rewards.
Belgium's government has put the focus on player protection. The government enforced a €200 weekly deposit limit last month. This limit can be increased on request of the customer. In the proposal all gambling advertising like sponsorships and tv commercials will be prohibited. Personalised advertising will also be banned.
Belgium is considering banning gambling advertising. In the Netherlands, operators have more responsibility in terms of responsible gaming.
