Dutch National Lottery to Split Lottery and Sports Betting Accounts

The Dutch National Lottery (Nationale Loterij) has announced that they are going to separate online accounts for sports betting and the lottery.

From 1 March 2021, customers will need to have separate accounts for the lottery and sports betting verticals since they will be subject to different laws under The Netherlands’ legislative changes.

The lottery’s Toto sports betting service will fall under the country’s new Remote Gambling Act, while lottery products such as Lotto, Eurojackpot and scratch cards will remain under the existing Gambling Act.
