Dutch National Lottery to Separate Lottery and Sports Betting Accounts
The Dutch National Lottery (Nationale Loterij) has announced it will introduce separate online accounts for lottery and sports betting, ahead of the country launching its regulated online gambling market in 2021.
From 1 March 2021, customers that want to place online sports bets and also play lottery games over the internet will need to have separate accounts for each vertical.
This, the Nationale Loterij explained, is due to the two products being subject to different laws.
Its Toto sports betting service will be governed by the new Remote Gambling Act, whereas the current Gambling Act will covers lottery products such as Lotto, Eurojackpot, Lucky Day and scratch cards.
The scheduled March launch date for the separate accounts will coincide with the planned implementation of the Remote Gambling Act.
The Act had been due to become effective on 1 July, with the igaming market then opening for business from 1 January 2021, but this was delayed twice: first in November 2019 and then again in September of this year.
The Dutch regulated market is now set to open on 1 September 2021.
