son has announced that it has taken action against the Netherlands by writing to the European Commission, following what it describes as a continued breach of EU law by the Dutch authorities.

The announcement comes after a five-year-long wait in regards to Holland’s passing of a gambling framework that falls in line with EU regulations.

The operator is pushing legislators to implement more stringent rules regarding unlicensed operators serving Dutch players, fundamentally removing the confusion and instability for consumers.

Betsson claims the actions of the Dutch gaming authority, KSA are to blame for the lack of clarity offered to Dutch players, describing it as “the continued and flagrant breach by the Dutch authorities”.

Betsson’s Chief Executive and President, Urik Bengtsson comments: “Betsson view the ongoing confusion in the Dutch market as unacceptable; we have therefore submitted an official complaint to the European Commission.

“The current law in the Netherlands is not in line with EU law and we have therefore asked the Commission to re-open the infringement proceedings that were initiated against the Netherlands in 2006.”
