William Hill no Longer Accepting Dutch Players

The Netherlands are looking to regulate online gaming, where operators will have to pay a licensing fee and tax to accept Dutch players in the near future. Following up on this, the Netherlands Gaming Authority has started to clamp down on remote gaming sites who offers games to dutch players.

 

This has led to one of the world’s leading online gaming sites, William Hill, to stop accepting Dutch players and also close down the accounts already registered with the site. William Hill sent an official communication to all affiliates and partners, telling them to remove William Hill as an offer for Dutch players.

 

William Hill will no longer accept anyone with a Dutch IP to register an account as well as to place wagers, play poker or any other product offered by them. The reason for the quick pull out from Willam Hill is due to them wanting to be able to purchase a license for the market later on and doesn’t want to ruin that opportunity by offering games to Dutch players.

 

The NGR already announced that any application from company will have to reviewed with them having accepted Dutch players unlicensed in mind. This has led to several online companies stopping the acceptance of Dutch players.
