Netherlands Justice Minister Sander Dekker has warned that “cowboys”—or international gambling operators who have been “actively” targeting Dutch gamblers—would not be considered for a Dutch online license. Dekker said that operators who are “actively” seeking Dutch customers are those that the use Dutch payment processor iDeal, has a Dutch domain name, or market directly to Dutch customers. However, the cowboys may be granted licenses later on—if they “show good behavior during a consecutive period prior to the license application.”
