The Dutch gambling regulator is carrying out inspections at slot machine arcades across the Netherlands from mid-December.


Kansspelautoriteit said it is particularly focused on duty of care from operators of land-based establishments containing gaming machines.

“Since April 1, 2021, the legal duty of care for amusement arcades has been further expanded,” it said.

"This means that they are obliged to prevent and limit gambling addiction as much as possible.

“KSA supervisors will carry out checks on, among other things, compliance with the requirements of addiction prevention.”

The KSA said it will publish the findings of its inspections in due course.
