Better not to impose limits on players so as not to collapse the market, says Netherlands. 

Dublin illegal gambling goes through amusement establishments

The Netherlands’ national Advisory Board on Regulatory Burden (Adviescollege toetsing regeldruk – ATR) has advised against the Ministry of Justice and Security's recently proposed player deposit limit and responsible gaming rules.


According to ATR, the Ministry failed to consider less burdensome alternatives to the mandatory contact moment in cases when players want to increase their personal playing limits, or the proposed closer monitoring of player behavior.


As a result, ATR recommends that the Ministry's new rules, which were scheduled to enter into force in Q4 2024, should not be introduced as currently proposed.


Although this would appear to be good news for the industry, ATR suggests low, non-increasable deposit limits and a total ban on all online gambling advertising as “less burdensome” alternatives for licensed operators.


It is remarkable, to say the least, that an advisory board explicitly intended to protect enterprises, professionals, and citizens against government overregulation would express a preference for even more restrictive rules than originally proposed.

Police Make Arrest in $33m ZKasino Crypto Gambling Scam, Seize $12m. 

Dublin illegal gambling goes through amusement establishments


In a press release on Friday, the Netherlands Fiscal Information and Investigation Service (FIOD) revealed that it arrested a 26-year-old male on April 29 on suspicion of money laundering, embezzlement, and fraud.

The authorities searched the Dutch national’s residence, seizing assets worth more than €11.4m ($12m), such as a luxury car, real estate, and cryptocurrency. It said that further arrests could be in the cards.


Raising suspicions


The FIOD started looking into ZKasino on April 25 after receiving complaints from people who invested in the blockchain casino project. Investigators worked closely with cryptocurrency exchange Binance’s Financial Crime Compliance and Investigations team to freeze funds.


The FIOD intends to return the money to the victims if they cooperate with the investigation. A Telegram group named “ZKasino Legal Task Force” was set up by people impacted by the scam; the FIOD posted in the channel when the arrest was made.


Investors began to question the legitimacy of ZKasino shortly after the network went live on April 20. More than 10,000 investors had invested 10,515 ETH ($33m) on the promise of earning rewards for their locked-up funds.


The platform’s owners swapped the ETH with its $ZKAS tokens, which they put into the Lido staking protocol. The website also no longer showed a statement saying investors would be guaranteed to receive their returns in ETH. Numerous cryptocurrency exchanges quickly moved to cancel their plans to list the $ZKAS token over these suspicious actions.
