BtoBet granted Dutch certification

| By Laura Gumbrell
BtoBet has been granted approval for its sportsbook platform to be used in the Netherlands from Dutch gaming authority, de Kansspelautoriteit (KSA).

Aspire Global-owned BtoBet said its Neuron 3 sportsbook platform is now certified as fully compliant with Dutch regulations, meaning licensed operators may not use it.

Dima Reiderman, BtoBet’s chief operating officer, said: “Receiving the Dutch supplier licence offers significant growth opportunities for BtoBet, as we seek to bring first-class betting entertainment to players together with local operators.

“This licence, pending our entry in the Dutch market, will help to accelerate our foothold in the mature European market, as we continue to sustain our growth trajectory with a global market expansion strategy.

“Setting the basis for BtoBet’s entry to yet another regulated market highlights our commitment to strengthen our position as one of the leading sportsbook suppliers to the global industry.”

Gambling in the Netherlands is legalised and regulated by the Remote Gambling Act. Originally, the act was set to go live on 1 July 2020. However, after a number of delays it officially came into force on 1 April 2021, instead allowing market opening to take place on 1 October, six months later.

However, only 11 operators are licensed to go live in the market, with many others forced to block Dutch customers until they receive a licence.

The news comes after Aspire Global gained the Danish betting licence last week. It now operates in more than 30 regulated markets spanning Europe, America and Africa. They have also already gained a foothold in Latin America and Africa as the business intends to further expand its US and European markets.
