The Netherlands.- National regulator Kansspelautoriteit (KSA) has put back its deadline for responses to its consultation on new player protection rules to November 13 at 6pm.

The consultation was due to close today (November 9), but the regulator said it had received requests for more time to submit responses.

The proposals include a ban on timed bonuses and a requirement for operators to conduct risk analyses of all games, which will become law when The Netherlands’ Remote Gambling Act comes into force on March 1, regulating online gambling in the country.

The requirement for risk analyses would mean operators have to identify each game’s risk factors based on scientific analysis, taking into account jackpot sizes, return-to-player rates, volatility, visual design and accessibility.

Other requirements include a range of restrictions on marketing messages.

Dutch Minister for Legal Protection, Sander Dekker, has told the country’s parliament he is confident regulations will be sufficient but that there will be a legislative review in three years.
