888 PULLING OUT OF THE NETHERLANDS?
06th August, 2014 at 03:56:10
Official notice to affiliate marketers in the sports vertical suggests so.
It appears that online gambling group 888 Holdings is pulling out of the Dutch online sports betting market, which is currently moving toward legalisation early next year.
In a notice on its website, the company advises affiliate marketers that, "pursuant to recent developments in The Netherlands," it is instructing that affiliates must, with immediate effect, "discontinue and in future refrain from any marketing activities whatsoever that are directed at the Dutch market and which are related to either Dutch or international large-scale sporting events."
The directive notes that the cessation of activity includes any marketing activities in the Dutch language; any marketing activities on websites with Dutch TLD URLs; or any marketing activity related to Dutch sporting events.
Affiliates who have started promoting 888Sport are asked to remove any marketing material as defined in the directive, and are requested to refrain from any future activity.
The directive comes on the heels of repeated warnings by the Dutch authorities that continued illegal activity by unauthorised operators could result in prosecution, blacklisting and the future denial of licensing opportunities (see previous reports)
