Dutch Gambling Authority Reaches Agreement with Facebook to Block Illegal Operators

In light of its decision to clamp down on unlicensed gambling operators that advertise their offering to Dutch punters, the Dutch Gaming Authority has scored an agreement with social network Facebook, which has agreed to work in line with the Dutch law and block advertisers who illegally offer their services in the market and are reported by the Kansspelautoriteit.

Commenting on the agreement, Kansspelautoriteit board member Paul Tang said that it represents "an important step in combating illegal operators and preventing people, especially young people who have easy access to Facebook, in to being duped into participating in illegal gambling. By taking this step, the organisation is showing it takes its social responsibilities seriously."
