The Netherlands gambling authority Kansspelautoriteit (KSA) has begun testing the waters with an invitation to submit expressions of interest for remote gaming licenses.
The KSA seeks to establish how many operators would be interested in applying for a license, saying completion of the relevant form is non-binding. A register would also allow the authority to periodically inform interested parties on the latest developments.
License application processing fees are expected to cost around Euro 40,000.00, the KSA said.
The legal framework on which the re-regulated market will be based is still under discussion in the Dutch Senate.
