What are gambling levies?

Gambling levies are necessary to finance the legal tasks of the Netherlands Gaming Authority, including regulatory supervision on compliance with gambling laws, enforcement of gambling laws, furthering the prevention of gambling addiction, as well as public education and the provision of information. Furthermore, the Remote Gambling Bill has proposed the introduction of a central national register of player exclusions and an addiction fund to be administrated by the Netherlands Gaming Authority (only remote gambling licensees will contribute to the latter).
