Dutch Online Gambling Legislation Delays

Posted by admin on August 04, 2014

Online gambling was once a high and mighty one for the Dutch. It was found to be profitable for nearly all who gambled in Holland and the Netherlands, but unfortunately with the European Union beginning to regulate online gambling, the Dutch did the same. Netherland Officials stated that they have had series delays with legislating the new online gambling laws for Holland and the Netherlands. This comes as a surprise to many as online gambling will be able to bring in a mass amount of taxes for the Netherlands and Holland Governments.

Unfortunately regulation has been progressing slowly in the European Union. Every country connected to one another in the European Union have been spending time figuring out different laws which would allow them to tax online gambling, fine those who break laws and give them prison time. This takes a long period of time for any government to do, the United Kingdom is nearly finished their regulation. Within the next two years every country in the European Union and surrounding it will offer regulated online gambling. This will allow for Europe to grow like no other economy on the planet.

Dutch Officials have yet to make any comments relating as to when these legislations will be put into office or as to when we can expect legal, regulated online gambling to be a factor within the Netherlands and Holland. We will keep you informed on whatever might occur in the future for online gambling in Holland and the Netherlands.
