LiveScore was among the first 10 operators to receive an online gambling licence in the Netherlands, following the passage of the Remote Gambling Act, which legalised online gaming in the country. The Anzo Group-owned business is licensed to offer both sports betting and online casino to Dutch consumers.
NOGA managing director Peter-Paul de Goeij pointed to LiveScore Bet’s consumer protections in a statement: “We are pleased that LiveScore Bet, as one of the early licensees in the Netherlands, has opted to join NOGA.
“LiveScore Bet is a very reputable operator in our industry, putting a safe and secure betting experience at the heart of their operation. We look forward to working with them, and in so doing contribute positively to the policy objective of optimal consumer protection,” he said.
LiveScore Bet group director of regulatory compliance Monika Naydenova-Grue added: “We are pleased to announce our NOGA membership. NOGA has been at the forefront of industry efforts in the Netherlands to build a sustainable remote gaming framework for both operator and consumer, and with our international experience, we are convinced we can contribute to this even further.”
The news comes in the context of a recent announcement that LiveScore Bet’s parent company, LiveScore Group, is receiving a £50m (€58m/$57.4m) investment from Swiss media conglomerate Ringier AG, which the company stated would be used to expand the business on a global scale.
