Dutch Land-based Gambling Market Grew 2.4% in 2017
The Dutch land-based gambling market generated €2.53bn in GGR, up 2.4% compared to the previous year, according to the Netherlands Gaming Authority’s annual market scan.
The lottery vertical is the largest sub-market, both in regards to GGR (47%) and number of players. Land-based gaming machines generated 41% of total GGR, followed by casino table games (10%) and land-based sports betting (2%).
Despite its small size, the land-based sports betting market is growing rapidly. Revenues of De Toto – the sole (non-horseracing) licensed betting operator – grew 22% year-on-year in 2017. However, 40.6% of Dutch legal sports betting participants also employ the services of unlicensed betting operators.
The Gaming Authority furthermore notes that the effective tax burden on various games of chance varies wildly: from 29% of GGR on casino games and gaming machines to 19.6% of GGR on lottery games, and a mere 6.1% of GGR on land-based sports betting.
