Many changes have been taking place in the Netherlands in terms of online gaming. This country is now preparing to open its online gambling market to international competition – as early as 2015. One big change is that the Netherlands will lower its tax rate to 20% compared to the 29% that the Holland Casino, foreign online casinos, national providers and arcade owners have to pay. In the European Union, the Netherlands is the 17th biggest online gambling market with more than 700,000 players and a revenue between €130 million and €250 million.
The Netherlands is known for its appetite for technological innovations and because of this, Dutch banks have been revamped to allow for the growth of a mature and secure online banking system. This system provides users with access to e-wallets which is one of the important factors needed for success in any online market including online casinos.
In this new open online gambling market, it is likely that betting will become a significant profit generator. Currently, online casinos make up 22% of the online gambling market in the Netherlands and once online casino games are regulated, international and local players will flock to online casinos. Online gaming is predicted to become highly competitive because of the large number of international and local gaming brands already in the Dutch market.
According to discussions at the Gaming in Holland conference in June of 2013, online bingo is expected to increase to 12% of the GGR, online lotteries are expected to increase to 23% of the market share and online poker is expected to increase to 12% of the GGR.
