Choosing a safe online casino to gamble: what does the Netherlands have to offer?

It is now almost April. This means that the license applications of online casinos are almost submitted to the Kansspelautoriteit (Ksa). This means that online casinos are eager to offer online gambling legal in the Dutch market. Exciting! And at the same time a positive development. After all, channeling is one of the goals of the Dutch Act on Remote Gaming.

Channeling online gambling

Channelization is explained in the context of online gambling in the Netherlands.

At present, of course, there is already ample opportunity to gamble online. There are several online casinos offering online gambling to the Dutch consumer, without having a license. And as you, as an avid player, may have read on the Internet (or perhaps already experienced yourself): sometimes things go wrong while gambling online. There are plenty of untrustworthy sites that are known for the following abuses:

  1. Bad policies on responsible gambling (as a side note, read the extensive Responsible Gambling Policy of the Dutch Gaming Authority).
  2. Delayed payouts.
  3. No payouts.
  4. Poor customer service.
  5. And more.

Channeling is the 'attempt' by the Netherlands to legalize online gambling, at least 80% of Dutch players play at licensed Dutch online casinos. This way, the Dutch consumer is protected, and safe gambling is promoted. Of course, there are also things you can do yourself to promote safe online gambling!

Do your research on online casinos

Different types of parties will soon apply for a license. For example:

  1. 'Land-based' parties (who currently have casinos/gambling halls in the Netherlands) will soon go online.
  2. New parties: entrepreneurs who are going to take a chance with an online casino.
  3. And the existing foreign casinos that want to expand into the Netherlands.

This last category opens up opportunities for you as a player. It is true that there is already much information available about these existing parties. For example, read the casino reviews of Top Casino. The licensed offerings will soon be recognized by the stamp of the Gaming Authority.

Have you found an online casino with this stamp and is it one that has been active for some time? Then do some online research into the quality of the online casino. Also, in these times of digitalization, you can count on finding plenty of information about newer players in no time, as reported https://aolbroadband.in/.

Review the privacy documentation

These days, under the General Data Protection Regulation (AVG), you are required to be open when it comes to privacy-sensitive data. For online casinos, this is definitely a very important point: this was once again emphasized in the Opinion of the Council of State on the Betting and Gaming Decree (read our blog about this opinion here). Generally speaking, you could say that when an online casino has a well-organized privacy policy, this is definitely a big plus. So take a look at the privacy statement and judge for example how much care is taken. Do you really want to go "deep"? Then ask for some information about this at the casino's customer service.

Review the terms and conditions and bonus terms

Basically the same as above: the look and feel of an online casino's terms and conditions will tell you a lot. Read our extensive blog on what to look for in online casino terms and conditions.

Ultimately, it's important to always be on your toes when you're gambling. Does everything look good? Are the reviews positive? What about the reasonableness of the terms and conditions? Keep an eye on our news articles and blogs to stay up-to-date on the Dutch online gaming market!
