Dutch Gaming Authority Investigates Advertising Online Gambling Providers: Aimed at Young People?

May 1, 2022 | Advertising

THE HAGUE, Netherlands (April 25, 2022) — The Gaming Authority (Ksa) is starting an investigation into advertising (including bonus offers) that legal online gambling providers may send to minors and young adults (18-24 years old). That is prohibited. Young people are especially vulnerable to developing gambling addiction.

The research consists of 2 parts:


  1. The Ksa requests information from licensed providers to check whether they have sent advertisements to minors and young adults. This concerns emails, bonus offers, push messages or other information.
  2. In addition, the Ksa calls on social media to report the aforementioned examples of advertising aimed at minors and young adults.

The Ksa likes to receive reports about advertising aimed at young people up to the age of 24 via its report form . This research focuses on legal online gambling providers. You can see whether a company has a license in our Gaming Guide. If possible, add proof, for example a screenshot or the email. If we have any questions, we will contact you.


Unfortunately, it is not possible to provide individual feedback on all reports. After the investigation, we will inform you about the result via our website. Only use the form to make a report. Any questions can be emailed to
