Dutch Hour at iGB Live! perfectly timed to analyse KSA's announcement on the cooling-off period

16 July 2019

‘The Dutch’ hour, taking place in the HQ conference at iGB Live! in Amsterdam, comes in perfect timing to discuss the latest updates from the Kansspelautoriteit (KSA) announced on Monday 15th July on the application process for prospective operators.

The regulation in the Netherlands is a long time coming, with a legacy of push-back for more than a decade. On Monday, 15th July, the KSA issued that license candidates must not have targeted Dutch customers, either in the Dutch language or through a dot.nl site (plus other requirements) for two years from the application date. Operators targeting the Dutch market during the cooling-off period will face a 6-month blackout period, subject to change alongside the market launch date. A final version of the criteria of entry will be issued before the end of 2019, and any operator meeting one or more points will be automatically excluded from the market.

The Dutch Hour at iGB Live! will address these new regulatory updates with an expert panel of speakers from Kalff Katz & Franssen, Speel Verantwoord, Holland Casino, and JvH, moderated by regional compliance expert Roger Parkes from Betway, followed by a Q&A allowing attendees to ask specific questions on the interpretation of this legislation.

The session at iGB Live! comes in fortuitous timing to address the announcement fresh from the KSA, allowing attendees to gain clarity on their standing in applying for a license direct from Dutch experts at Europe’s biggest igaming event.

“iGB Live! is the perfect platform to include these updates fresh for a diverse audience of European operators already at the show, and we look forward to answering their questions” Justin Franssen, speaker on the Dutch Hour panel.
