Gaming Authority: Online gambling market stable

The legal market for online games of chance, which opened on October 1, 2021, is showing itself to be quite stable. The monthly gross gaming result (BSR; stake minus paid out prizes) amounts to approximately 80 million euros, the Gaming Authority reports.

This is evident from the Monitoring report online gambling published by the Gaming Authority (Ksa). On October 1, 2021, there were 10 license holders, but that number has now grown to 22.

Established brands such as TOTO and Holland Casino score highest in a brand awareness measure. However, 69 percent of the respondents are unable to identify themselves as specific providers. The three largest providers jointly have a market share of sixty to seventy percent.

Advertising for online games of chance has now fallen sharply. The provider’s average spending decreased, from about 8 tons in November 2021 to just over 300,000 euros in August of this year.

It is not known exactly how many Dutch people play with legal gambling providers, because it is possible to have a player account with several gambling providers. In July 2022, 563,000 accounts were actually played. The average monthly loss per player account was 153 euros.

The objective of the Remote Gambling Act was that three years after the opening of the legal online gambling market, at least 8 out of 10 players would only play with legal providers in a safe environment with sufficient attention to addiction prevention. The monitoring report shows a favorable picture in this regard: 85 percent of the online players played exclusively with legal providers.

On October 1, 2021, simultaneously with the opening of the legal online games of chance market, the Central Register of Exclusion of Chance Games (Cruks) started. More than 23,000 people are now registered. As a result, they cannot participate in a game of chance for at least 6 months.
