In a move starkly contrasting with their anti-online gambling stance, the new Dutch government has proposed a regulation system similar to those already up and running in several European nations.
“It is a big shift,” government hk prize Jaap Oosterveer told Reuters, “but this is a new government with a more liberal approach.”
The Netherlands’ previous legislative body wanted nothing to do with online gaming, and made several decisions in keeping with that philosophy. These included defeats of both Ladbrokes and Betfair, each of whom have previously challenged the authority of the gambling laws.
But with hundreds of thousands of Dutch citizens openly circumventing the current laws, it would seem that the government’s new approach features a great deal of common sense.

A great deal of further profit will emerge once the taxes begin flowing in from the tables.
