The Dutch Gambling Authority has published a new enforcement policy for illegal gaming machines in the land-based sector.
Kansspelautoriteit said it is looking to become “more visible in the physical domain” and tackle illegal land-based gambling “more firmly” with the legislation, which came into force at the start of December.
“With the new policy, the KSA is taking a more proactive and independent role,” the regulator said. “It will become clearer to enforcement partners in the country how the KSA acts in illegal land-based games of chance (for example illegal poker tournaments or gambling machines) and how it can provide support for partners’ actions.
“In addition, the KSA will also act independently and impose sanctions when a serious violation is found.”
The policy explains how Regional Information and Expertise Centers will be among the partners the KSA will work with more diligently in tackling illegal gambling.
