Dutch operator Smart Gaming has linked up with Diligence in Gaming in a deal that will see the former enter the Netherlands market. 

The partnership between the two, which has been in the works for six months before Smart received its Netherlands licence, will see the regulatory and operational compliance company continue to support the operator following the launch of betnation.nl

Robert Schouten, CEO at Smart Gaming, commented: “Diligence in Gaming, led in the Dutch market by Mike de Graaff, is the only provider of these vital services in the Netherlands. 

“Mike and the team have supported us during the licence application and will continue to do so to ensure we uphold the highest level of compliance and maintain a safe environment for our players. 

“We have trusted Mike and Diligence in Gaming to train our customer service, compliance team and senior management in all compliance-related matters, as well as supporting the building of the correct operational compliance framework. The results are without equal.”

Part of the ComplianceOne Group, Diligence in Gaming is a regulatory and compliance firm supporting gaming operators entering new markets and remaining compliant in existing ones.

Mike de Graaff, Regional Compliance Manager, NL at Diligence in Gaming, added: “The Dutch market requires specialist and local expertise to ensure compliance. It is key for operators to engage with these activities in preparation to go live as early as possible, as the KSA will test operators in their ability to comply with these requirements. 

“Smart Gaming worked with us for six months before receiving their licence, to ensure all was ready for the go live. Excellent planning has paid off, and we look forward to working with them in the future.”
