Dutch Gambling Authority Partners with Payments Processors

Dutch Gambling Authority Partners with Payments Processors Kansspelautoriteit, the Dutch Gambling Authority, has secured co-operation agreements with several payment service providers (PSP) in an effort to stop payments to unlicensed gambling operators offering gambling services to Dutch punters illegally.

Processors include PSP’s Mollie BV, DialXS BV, BV Sisow, Currence, Mastercard and members of the Payments Association Netherlands, Dutch Banks and PaySquare SE.

Kansspelautoriteit said, "If an illegal provider receives no money from a consumer, it becomes futile to be illegally operating in the market.”

The current PSP’s involved consider blocking these payments as a social responsibility.
  • I hope it will be a good thing too. When casino groups get together with platform providers and gaming inventors, etc., everything you can see ahead looks great, looks like more improvements. But, when payment providers get that OK from a government, it gives them the OK to make things slower and more complicated. For US players it usually looks like another payment provider we can't use.
  • This is really the shape of things to come - more and more restrictions and regulation around our ability to play easily on-line, I hope it turns out to be a good thing - a lot of good operators are being pushed out of the UK right now, how is that good for players?
