Research by the KSA revealed that at least for a certain period of time online games of chance were offered via the website bwin.com. There was a large selection of sports bets on the site. It was also possible to play live casino games such as roulette, blackjack and poker. The site focused on Dutch consumers. This is evident from the use of the Dutch payment method iDEAL. Offering the possibility of gambling is prohibited in the Netherlands without a license. Under the current Gambling Act, it is not possible to obtain a license for online gambling.
