JVH subsidiary JOI secures two further Dutch igaming licences

| By Robert Fletcher
JOI Gaming, a division of Dutch land-based casino operator JVH Gaming & Entertainment Group, has secured an additional two online gambling licences in the country.

Issued by de Kansspelautoriteit (KSA), the licences will permit the offering of online games of chance via the internet.

The licences were handed to JOI I Limited and JOI II Limited, but the KSA said it is not yet clear what domain names the two licence-holders will operator under in The Netherlands.

JOI Gaming secured its original licence in November 2021 and is active in the country via the Jacks.nl domain. It also owns the Jack’s, Jack’s Casino, Jack’s Casino & Sports and Jack’s Sports brand names, with its sportsbook offering powered by Kambi.

The regulator did not reveal which brand name the new licence would be for.

JOI owner JVH operates a network of 85 land-based casinos across the country under the Jack’s Casino, Flash Casino’s and Flamingo Casino.

The Netherlands opened its regulated online gambling market on 1 October, having initially issued 10 licences.

These were handed to operators including Bet365, UK-based bingo operator Tombola, which has since been acquired by Flutter, Play North, Dutch land-based operator Holland Casino and state lottery Nederlandse Loterij with its Toto Online brand.

The Janshen Hahnraths Group with FPO Nederland, Italy-based Betent, Belgian brand Bingoal, NSUS Malta, which runs the GGPoker.eu brand and sports media and betting business LiveScore Malta also secured licences.
