Kansspelautoriteit (KSA), the Dutch gambling regulator has finalised their rules on the new involuntary exclusion of players from gambling. The new Dutch Remote Gambling Act allows for family members, employers and gaming operators to add individuals to the Netherlands’ self exclusion registry.
The KSA which only began their online gaming licensing process in April of this year, will officially go live with a number of operators on the 1st of October. Operators under the license will be required to check all of their players against the CRUKS self exclusion listing before they can approve accounts.
In the new player exclusion rules, one of the conditions which allows for a third party to add someone to the register will be that in doing so, they are preventing them from financial, social or personal damage. This measure should only be used as a last resort when other measures have not worked in reducing harm.
A third party can register a player to CRUKS either online or via post, by first explaining their relationship with the player and why they are requesting the exclusion. The KSA will then begin an investigation into the player’s gambling behaviour, checking the ...Read More

Spain’s Dirección General de Ordenación del Juego (DGOJ) have publicly proposed new rules regarding session-based loss limits for online casinos. Feedback from any interested parties have until a deadline of August 9th to respond.
These new rules set by the DGOJ mean that at the beginning of every session, players will have to set a time limit and spend limit. Once these limits have been set at the beginning of the session, players will no longer be able to adjust them.
Although players are unable to adjust the limits they have set during their session, these preferences are unable to be saved for future sessions. Therefore, players must set new limits each time they start a new session. To combat players just hitting their limit and then starting a new session, operators will have to allow players to restrict their access to future sessions if their session ends because they reach the limits they initially set. Additionally, any sessions that start within 60 minutes of the end of the previous session must be greeted by a message from the operator, which explains the little amount of time that has passed since the previous session.
Operators must send out a minimum of ...Read More
