Dutch residents are free to gamble online, but only on websites hosted in the Netherlands. There are not many websites available in Netherlands, therefore, the government's view of non-Dutch operators taking players from the Netherlands has given enough relaxation for some of the world's biggest and most well-known brands to move and merge into the Dutch market.
The online sports betting section is managed in a different culture, as it's not controlled by the Holland Casino. The sports betting come under the control of two companies known as De Lotto and Scientific Games Racing B.V.
Scientific Games Racing B.V. exclusively deals with the full range of sports betting markets with the sole exemption of horse racing betting. toto.dl owned by De Lotto is the only legal online sportsbook available to citizens of Netherlands.
Sports’ gambling is fairly passive here when compared to the rest of Europe. This is again as a result of the strict regulations and limits.
