Breaking News: Dutch Senate votes to legalize online gambling

The Netherlands Senate voted today in favor of the country’s long-awaited online gaming legislation, which was approved by the House of Representatives back in 2014.

The new regulatory regime will allow operators to secure online sports betting and casino gaming licenses to serve Dutch consumers, subject to secondary legislation that is yet to be submitted for European Commission approval.

Today, the Dutch Senate voted in favor of legislation to legalize internet-based gambling, clearing the way for foreign and Dutch firms to apply for licenses.

On Monday, the Financieele Dagblad said some 300 companies have expressed interest in running a gambling website in the Netherlands and about 50 are expected to make a formal application for a license when they are up for grabs next year. Tuesday’s vote comes two years after the lower house voted in favor of allowing third parties to legally offer online gambling.

Holland Casino is the Netherlands’ only state-regulated gambling establishment but foreign firms widely flout the ban and continue to target Dutch punters.

The two Christian parties in the ruling coalition voted against the legislation. They claim allowing more companies to offer online betting will lead to more problems with addiction.

Bangladesh bans online gambling websitesReading Time: 1 minute

 

Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) has asked all the internet gateway providers and Telecom department to run an internet safety solution programme to block online gambling websites. BTRC is believed to have received an instruction to effect the same from the country’s government.

The telecom regulator has sent the order to block the websites so that these websites will not be accessible in Bangladesh again.

“It might take few more hours to block all the sites completely as blocking any site is so technical,” said Md Emdadul Hoque, general secretary of Internet Service Provider Association of Bangladesh (ISPAB).

A top official of the BTRC said they have often found complaints from different sides about online gambling and that needs to block for the sake of safe internet.
