On 17 December 1975, the government officially granted the sole casino licence in the Netherlands to the National Foundation for the Exploitation of Casino Games, so Holland Casino. Holland Casino is still the sole licensed gaming provider in the Netherlands.
The government intentionally granted only one licence, to guarantee a legal, reliable and controllable range of gaming options. The goals expressed in the Dutch gaming policy play a major role in the licence:
• Protecting consumers
• Preventing gambling addiction
• Preventing crime
Our first casino opened its doors on 1 October 1976 in Zandvoort, and we now have fourteen casinos across the country.
In the meantime, the world around us has changed. But we are still here to provide our guests with a safe, fair and reliable gaming, as part of an exceptional total experience. This is and will remain our goal, now and in the future.
