The Netherlands Gaming Authority (KSA) has partnered with Cloudflare to improve its efforts in tackling illegal gambling operators and affiliates in the market.

The Dutch regulator said Cloudflare would be able to provide hosting information to better determine which individuals or companies are behind unlicensed sites.

According to the KSA, it was “often difficult to trace the owners and hosting parties of these websites” but Cloudflare’s expertise would go some way to mitigating this factor.

The new partnership comes after the KSA previously ordered Cloudflare, in its guise as an internet service provider, to block two illegal affiliate sites – nederlandscasinos.net and onlinecasinosspelen.com – having established they were operating outside of the legal framework.

However, it emerged that Cloudflare was unable to take measures to close the sites, but could provide information to help in investigations.

The regulator said: “The agreements made mean that the KSA can actively question Cloudflare in its investigations to provide more information about the hosting parties behind illegal gambling providers.

“Information provided by Cloudflare can therefore be useful for the KSA’s investigations, with the aim of putting an end to the illegal supply.”

The KSA’s link up with Cloudflare comes after the regulator reported the Dutch market returned €1.39bn (£1.19bn) in GGR in 2023.
