Date: 07-12-2016 | Posted in: News
A while ago we reported about the loss of Holland Casino’s monopoly in the Netherlands. The Dutch government wants the famous casino to be sold and privatized. However, the situation appears to change now, because the Employee Council is against the privatization of Holland Casino.
More gambling addictions
According to the radiostation BNR the Council wants to prevent the selling of Holland Casino. It thinks because of the privatization Holland Casino will mainly focus on making profits. So the customer is ‘less important’, and the business will be about the money. This development is eventually going to lead to more gambling addictions, the Council says.
Owned by the government
At this moment, Holland Casino is owned by the government. The company has a monopoly on gambling in our country. It was established 40 years ago to prevent illegal gambling and addictions. The Council thinks that privatization will reduce the effectiveness of this policy. Before the selling will be a fact, it has to be accepted by both chambers of the Dutch government. With the Employee Council as an opponent, the privatization of Holland Casino is suddenly a lot harder for the Dutch government.
