KSA chair René Jansen on rising gambling risks

René Jansen, the current Chair of the Dutch Gaming Authority Kansspelautoriteit (KSA), talked about some of his last projects for the organization.

René underlined that more and more Dutch citizens, especially professional sportsmen, are displaying dangerous gambling habit, which is proof that the hazards connected with online gambling are rising.

In order to address these problems, Jansen emphasized the need of the KSA thoroughly examining particular instances in order to combat compulsive gambling and announced plans for a thorough analysis of the industry.

He also responded to the Dutch Consumers’ Association’s concerns about the KSA’s understanding of the internal operations of gambling companies. The KSA aims to implement regulations to help inspectors better control operators, including the use of fake ID certificates.

Jansen believes the KSA can learn more about how casinos draw in and keep players by employing ‘mystery shopping’ strategies, in which inspectors take on the role of frequent patrons. Additionally, he emphasized that maintaining a safe gambling environment is a responsibility shared by the KSA and gambling businesses.

The KSA Chair position will be taken by Michel Groothuizen in July when Jansen’s residence expires in October.
