The checks are designed to ascertain whether the machines in question comply with new registration requirements – which have come into force since the launch of online gaming in the Netherlands on 1 October.
Slot machines have been required to record data about excessive participation for players since 1 April 2021. From 1 October, slot machines are now also required to record the visiting frequency of players.
A KSA statement said: “The new registration obligations are an important condition for analyzing player behaviour. The law not only legalizes the online gambling market, but also imposes new requirements on country-specific providers in the field of addiction prevention and advertising.”
The KSA recently opened up a consultation into responsible gaming research, regarding regulations for the provision of data to be used for research into gambling addiction.
