KSA has new rules for Dutch operators
Kansspelautoriteit made a new announcement in which they informed operators that they are allowed to provide games to only those players who have PKI certificate.
The PKI certificate is very much needed as it is the only way to examine and see if players have the Central Register of Exclusion of Chances registration. The registration is also known as Cruks. Cruks is a dutch gambling self-exclusion system and database.
Cruks was established by KSA during the second half of last year and it is still managed by the dutch gambling authorities. After creating registration, authorities urged the operators to consult with Cruks and verify players, before allowing them to play the games. Operators also need to send all the required information about users to KSA. After that the information is processed and then based on the results players will either be in the system or they will not.
Users who constantly gamble also need to be registered. lSA will report addictive behavior and make a decision about the player.
Each time a player wants to gamble, PKI certificate measures all the into to Cruks. As there is limited validity, operators have to provide all the valid certificates for the provisioning process.
In the statement KSA also announced that if the operators violate the current rule, they are going to have to pay fines.
The rule is issued in the context of huge nationwide debate and the current reform in terms of gambling in the country as lately this led to banning all the gambling ads nationally.
