The contract between the software provider and the Dutch government is for three years. The operator itself is set to be launched in June of this year, serving Holland residents with top quality and secure online gambling.
If this is the direction in which the industry is heading towards, i.e. government controlled sites, then the software provider would have a chance to impress the entire world with its product and support. This is especially true as other software providers have been altogether banned from operating in Holland, mainly due to past illegal advertising campaigns in Dutch publications. As long as state monopolies are indeed the way that Holland and other countries choose to take, such decisions that keep some disappointed will surely follow.
The award-wining software company will support Holland Casino, which operates no less than 14 brick and mortar venues across Holland. It has been operating since 1976, a period of over 30 years. Yet they are excited over the new partnership. As we take Holland Casino online, we needed a quality partner who could support us with innovation and integrity," said Ron Goudsmit, Vice-President for Business Development. Mr. Goudsmit and his state owned company are not the only ones who are excited over the new deal. The Dutch are regarded as avid gamblers, and a state of the art, secure, safe and technologically advanced operation will serve their gambling needs.
