The Nederlandse Loterij is the gambling organization in The Netherlands, known for the Staatsloterij, Lotto, Toto and scratch cards. All gambling games from the Nederlandse Loterij are intended for people aged 18 and older. On the 30th of May, the Nederlandse Loterij introduced iDIN (the online tool for safe and easy identification via the bank) to verify the age of online participants.
More than half of the Dutch people take a gamble from time to time with one of the games of the Nederlandse Loterij. The Nederlandse Loterij actively pursues a responsible gaming policy. This gaming policy focuses on consumer protection, addiction prevention and the prevention of illegality and crime.
Young people under 18 often have trouble seeing and resisting risks. The top priority of the Gaming Authority is therefore to prevent young people from being able to participate in gambling. That’s why the Gaming Authority thinks it is a good thing that the Nederlandse Loterij does an age check with all its online players.
Willemijn Jansen (Manager Responsible Gaming at Dutch Lottery) emphasizes the importance of an age check because only adults are allowed to play the games of the Nederlandse Loterij. "We offer gambling games in a fair and safe way, a reliable age verification of our players is part of that process." That’s why the Nederlandse Loterij works with iDIN.
The Nederlandse Loterij shows that a positive user experience, safety and responsible gaming work very well together. By using the iDin technology, they enable ease and safety as well as taking full responsibility when it comes to age verification (18+).
