High 5 Games wants to give Dutch gamblers access to some of the most globally popular online slot machines. It won’t be able to do so until the Netherlands turns on its new online gaming market later this year, but, when that happens, High 5 will be ready and waiting with its large portfolio of content.
High 5 Coming to the Netherlands
The Netherlands’ Remote Gaming Act has paved the way for online casinos to launch in the country, with operators now lining up in anticipation of the possible October introduction. There won’t be a shortage of content suppliers looking to bring their content to the new market, and High 5 has announced that it wants in on the action. The company is behind some of the most popular online slot titles found in online casinos around the world, and will open its portfolio to operators looking to attract users.
Asserts High 5 CEO Tony Singer in a press release, “Our commitment to Europe is strong and we’re going to really zero in on the Dutch market. We’re excited to bring players in the Netherlands a collection of games they know and love, plus new, unexpected titles that are popular in other markets. Big things are ahead.” The company adds that it will make available as soon as it launches in the Dutch market “Quadruple Da Vinci Diamonds, Way Out Wilds, The Legacy of Cleopatra’s Extreme, and Kingdom of Gold Mystic Ways, as well as High 5 Games’ most recent and unique releases, Retro Riches and Interstellar Attack.”
Netherlands Closing in on Online Gaming Launch
As of now, everything is still on track for the Netherlands to introduce its new online gaming market starting on October 1. There were a couple of glitches along the way because of COVID-19 and technical issues with the license application process, but everything has reportedly been put back in order. There will be up to 35 online operator licenses issues and the country’s gaming regulator, Kansspelautoriteit (KSA), is already busy making the final determination on who will be selected. As of this past March, it had received at least 40 applications from both domestic and international operators.
The Netherlands will learn from markets established in other countries and introduce tighter customer protection rules from the start. Operators are expected to have an official liaison who acts as a legal representative of the company and who will be the go-to person for any concerns over operations or possible breaches of regulations. It can be expected that all operators will face constant scrutiny from the first day, and any violations will be met with a swift reaction on the part of the KSA.
