Sports Betting Sites Warned to Stop Advertising to Dutch Citizens

Regulators in the Netherlands do not want consumers targeted by sports betting sites. They have begun a crackdown on operators trying to attract players for their major events. A letter-writing campaign had been initiated against rogue operators targeting ads to Dutch citizens. Most of the advertising was done during the Tour de France and the World Cup. Letters were sent to eight operators who have ceased the advertisements.

Each company that was sent a letter by Dutch regulators has stopped all promotion in the country. This includes shutting down all promotional websites and social media accounts designed to attract any new players. These actions seemed to be enough to satisfy Dutch regulators.

The Netherlands is expected to enact new laws targeting Internet gambling next year. Any operators of sports betting operations should not engage in any marketing activities until new laws are enacted. The affiliate marketers of gambling operators are also being investigated.

Dutch regulators are known for having a hands-on approach to the enforcement of gambling laws. They have issued a $103,000 fine for organizing a lottery for a home owned in South Africa.

  1. And how can they stop people seeing an advertising from the sport betting site? Are they forget? Who sponsored a soccer club like real madrid, ac milan, tottenham hotspur past this 7 years? Billion people around the world watch their match every week. Football is the most popular sport in this planet. How can they stop it? Lol

  2. yes, I agree to you Bernard, past these years, theres so many new online sport betting company, that suddenly came from everywhere in europe. So, how on earth they can stop people viewing an online betting advertising which everyone can see in almost every media.

  3. yes, almost in every professional football league in europe, theres one or two club who sponsored by sports betting company lake BWIN, Mansion etc.. people watch them almost everyday.

  4. Not to mention, sports betting pop ups advertising in many web. Everyone can access it. Everyone can see..

  5. I am not going to say that, Netherlands Regulators will be failed to stop all such activities for the Dutch citizens. But I challenge that they can never be get 100% success in this field. In this modern age, it is impossible to stop all the betting sites from advertising. Even very legit sites or media is also involved in such activities.
