Famous online casino and sportsbook LeoVegas has triumphantly returned to the Dutch iGaming sector. LeoVegas is returned with a variety of thrilling options, including online casino games, live casino experiences, and sports betting, after a two-year absence.
LeoVegas has reentered the Dutch iGaming sector after receiving a fresh license from the country’s gaming authority, the Kansspelautoriteit (KSA), in July. LeoVegas is authorized to conduct business in the Netherlands under its five-year license in a number of areas, including casino gaming, live casino activities, and sports betting.
Gustaf Hagman, the CEO of the LeoVegas Group, expressed his enthusiasm about this development, stating, “The King of Casino is finally home in the orange kingdom. I am delighted that we are taking steps into the Dutch market. The combination of a well-known brand, our platform, and cutting-edge content will make LeoVegas.nl a contender for the leader’s jersey in the Dutch iGaming market.”
A Return After Regulatory Changes
LeoVegas was previously active in the Netherlands, but it withdrew from the market when the country began its journey toward regulating online gambling. The Dutch online gambling market officially opened its doors on October 1, 2021, allowing players to legally participate in online gaming activities.
However, on the eve of this market launch, LeoVegas announced its withdrawal with the intention of securing a Dutch iGaming license to operate in compliance with the new regulations. It was a strategic move to avoid disciplinary actions that operators without licenses might face, potentially affecting their future license applications in the Netherlands.
Securing the license took longer than initially anticipated. LeoVegas had initially hoped to resume its operations in the Netherlands by the autumn of 2022, a target it has now successfully achieved.
LeoVegas’s return to the Dutch iGaming landscape signifies a significant step forward for the company. With its strong brand presence, advanced platform, and a wide array of engaging content, LeoVegas aims to establish itself as a prominent player in the Dutch iGaming sector. As the Dutch market continues to evolve and grow, LeoVegas is well-positioned to cater to the preferences and demands of Dutch consumers, offering a diverse and exciting gaming experience.
