Unibet back in the Netherlands in a few days

Unibet back in the Netherlands in a few days

Gambling site Unibet received a Dutch license today. This means that Unibet will return to the Netherlands sometime in the next few days.

It was a long wait for all fans of Unibet in the Netherlands. On October 1, 2021 the gambling site went black, because Unibet had not yet received a Dutch license. Read more about Unibet at the link https://cricket360.bet/cricket-betting-apps/.

But today there is good news: Unibet has received a license from the Kansspelautoriteit in The Hague.

This means that Unibet joins the select company of legal online casinos in the Netherlands.

Kindred Group, the parent company of Unibet, issued a jubilant press release this morning about the new license. Kindred's top boss, Henrik Tjärnström, called the Netherlands 'an important European market' and said:

'Now is the time to also show in the Netherlands that we can offer online games of chance in a safe and responsible manner.

As one of the largest listed online gaming providers in the world, we want to use our knowledge and experience to actively contribute to a safe Dutch online gaming sector.'

When exactly will Unibet return?

The press release does not state an exact launch date for Unibet Netherlands, but it does state the following:

'Swedish company Kindred is going to offer its services through the flagship brand Unibet and will launch its site Unibet.nl in the coming days.'

Mr. Casino expects this to be sometime during the week of June 13, 2022.

Unibet is best known to the general public as a provider of sports betting, but the Unibet Casino was also very popular in the Netherlands before the site went black.

In October 2021, Kindred reported that the closure of Unibet in the Netherlands would cost around €14 million per month in profits. This made Unibet one of the largest gambling sites in the Dutch market.

It remains to be seen whether Unibet will become as popular as before when the company returns to the Netherlands.

Many sports bettors by now are used to the offerings of parties like BetCity and Bet365. And where previously Unibet was known for, among other things, the very extensive range of slots, there are now online casinos with a similar range, such as Kansino and Circus Casino.
