Betting in the Netherlands
The Netherlands is a highly developed European country of liberal morals, with one of the highest population densities.
The Dutch are permitted much of what is banned in other European countries. Surprisingly, the sports betting market was not regulated by law for a long time and had been banned.
In 2017, however, the ban was lifted. It was a true breakthrough, as it opened up broad prospects for Dutch bettors.
With the advent of the 2017 law regulating the online betting market,
betting sites in the Netherlands are any online foreign operators that comply with the law's most basic requirement - no site interface in the Dutch language.
Dutch gamblers are allowed to bet online on betting sites and their winnings are non-taxable.
This has opened up a wide field for Dutch residents when choosing the best betting sites, and they had quite the selection.
Recognizable brands, such as Parimatch, Unibet, Bwin and Betfair have become popular here.
