KSA reports slowing Dutch gambling market growth

The Kansspelautoriteit’s latest market report covers the performance of Dutch gambling firms over a one-year period.

The Kansspelautoriteit’s latest publication is the fifth one of its kind, which has covered the performance of the Dutch gambling sector in the period between August of last year and July of this year. The main thing uncovered by the report was that the sector’s growth has slowed down in several areas, such as in terms of its gross gambling revenue, which was recorded at just over 1.3 billion euros in the one-year period. While this represented a 33% year-over-year increase, Dutch gambling firms only experienced a revenue increase of 8% in the second half of the period.

The regulator noted that the growth in the number of player accounts was stagnating in the period as well. It found that in January, the market’s active player accounts figure was hovering around the 860 thousand mark, while six months later it was down to 826 thousand.

The report then covered the average player’s monthly spending on the gambling pastime, which is estimated to be around 170 euros per month. The regulator also mentioned that it utilized a new calculation method for this figure that took into account a user’s long-term losses and better represented the average monthly spending on the pastime.

Lastly, the report mentioned a few other noteworthy statistics of the Dutch gambling market, such as its channelization rate of 93%, a slight decline in active gambling accounts used by younger gamblers in the second half of the period, and a steady increase in the users of the country’s Cruks self-exclusion scheme.
