Dutch affiliates call for betting restrictions to be reconsidered
Four affiliate representatives have written to the Netherlands’ House of Representatives, urging lawmakers to reconsider the country’s restrictions on popular types of bets
Four prominent names in the affiliate sector have written to the Netherlands’ House of Representatives to call for restrictions to be reconsidered.
In a joint letter, the affiliates argue that the prohibition of over/under options such as bets on the number of cards or corners in a match leads to players turning to unregulated betting.
They also cited a recent case in Belgium where a man was arrested for placing illegal bets for Dutch residents.
The affiliates argue that allowing certain types of bets with football-focused companies only would help manage the risk of match-fixing.
However, with MPs pushing for a ban on gambling advertising, it remains uncertain if the request will be successful.
