Netherlands achieves 85% channelisation and €80m monthly GGR in first year

Dutch regulator de Kansspelautoriteit (KSA) has published statistics on the first year of licensed online gambling in the country, revealing an 85% channelisation rate and revenue of around €80m per month.
One of the principle goals of the 2020 Remote Gambling Act (KOA), the law which created the provisions for the launch of the legal market in the Netherlands, was to attain an 80% channelisation rate; that is having eight out of 10 players using legal licensed websites for their gambling activities. One year after the full implementation of the law, a survey by market research firm Ipsos on behalf of the Netherlands Online Gambling Association (NOGA) reports that the new regime has brought about an 85% channelisation rate.

Swedes list bonuses as main reason for using unlicensed sites

Swedish regulator Spelinspektionen has released the results of a June survey which has examined the reasons Swedes use unlicensed sites, with bonuses being the top factor.

The survey asked Swedish users who gambled with websites that did not have a licence with the country’s regulator, representing 8% of the total population, to state their principal reason for doing so.

Of the 77 respondents to the initial 4,400-person survey that said they used unlicensed sites, 32% of them said bonus offers are the main reason they did so, an increase from 21% in the previous May 2021 survey.
