Sports Betting in the Netherlands: A Legal Framework Study

  • Dolf Segaar
  • Wouter Seinen


This book looks at the Law and Policy on Betting and Sport in many countries around the world—sport is a global phenomenon—providing a useful and valuable comparative survey on a subject that is so vital for safeguarding and preserving the integrity of those sports in which betting is legally allowed. The country reports show how sports-related betting is organized in the country concerned, from a historical and policy perspective (national Lotteries Act; state run/state licensed lotteries and/or private operators; how the licensing system for public operators works; state supervisory mechanisms, etc.), and contain a treatment of the national case-law.
