Hague court has rejected Betsson's claim for iGaming restrictions

Swedish iGaming operator Betsson AB lost its bid against Dutch Gaming Authority, Kansspelautoriteit, for igaming prohibition as the Dutch court said that the iGaming ban is legal.

In 2014, Betsson purchased the Dutch facing Oranje Casino and Kroon Casino online gambling brands for over €100 million, with both companies allowed to operate in the Netherlands as their operations were compliant with Kansspelautoriteit’s rules.

Kansspelautoriteit introduced this year a new set of rules in relation for igaming prohibition in the country where online gaming operators are not allowed to target local players by using typically Dutch symbols, such as tulips and windmills.

Betsson said “the ongoing confusion in the Dutch market as unacceptable,” adding that “the current law in the Netherlands is not in line with EU law.”
