Only a few more days to go: on 5 February 2019, there will be the hearing in the Dutch Senate on the introduction of the Remote Gambling Act (‘RGA’). This is more than 2.5 years after the Act passed the House of Representatives.
In principle, no changes to the latest draft are accepted anymore. This means that the RGA will either be approved or denied. If all parties agree to the proposal, no vote is required and the Act will pass. If one of the parties requires a vote, the vote will be on 12 February 2019.
DLA Piper will be attending the final vote, and we will immediately report the outcome.
