Smart Gaming has officially gained entry into the Dutch regulated gambling market by signing a deal with its biggest supporter, Diligence in Gaming. The latter will support its newest partner and its casino brand betnation.nl.
This deal is not the first time the duo have collaborated. Formerly, Diligence in Gaming joined forces with Smart Gaming to help the iGaming operator receive a license in the Netherlands. This long-lasting process has taken 6 months, but finally, last month, Smart Gaming received its license to work in the Netherlands.
Mike de Graaff, Regional Compliance Manager, NL at Diligence in Gaming, said: “The Dutch market requires specialist and local expertise to ensure compliance. It is key for operators to engage with these activities in preparation for go live as early as possible, as the KSA will test operators in the ability to comply with these requirements.
“Smart Gaming worked with us for six months before receiving their licence, to ensure all was ready for the go live. Excellent planning has paid off, and we look forward to working with them in the future.”
Robert Schouten, Chief Executive Officer at Smart Gaming, added: “Diligence in Gaming, led in the Dutch market by Mike de Graaff, is the only provider of these vital services in the Netherlands. Mike and the team have supported us during the license application and will continue to do so to ensure we uphold the highest level of compliance and mantain a safe environment for our players.
“We have trusted Mike and Diligence in Gaming to train our customer service, compliance team and senior management in all compliance-related matters, as well as supporting the building of the correct operational compliance framework. The results are without equal.”
Diligence in Gaming is an administrative and compliance company specialized in supporting gaming operators to set foot in new gambling markets and to remain compliant in existing ones. It is a part of ComplianceOne Group and its services include policy draft and review, GAP analysis, policy implementation and regulatory reporting.
Smart Gaming, on the other hand, impresses with its casino brand betnation.nl. Its plan to enter the Dutch regulated gambling market and to go live in Netherlands shows that it is very strategic when it comes to reaching its goals.
