Holland online gambling bill stalls

Holland’s online gambling bill which was set to legalise internet gambling in the country is in danger of missing its 2015 target because opposition parties within the coalition government are trying to stall the progress of the bill.

A planned meeting to discuss the provisions of the bill was cancelled last week in attempt to delay the passage of the bill which was hoped to reach a parliamentary vote before the summer recess that starts in mid-July.

However many observers believe it will still make the deadline and will be passed in to law for 2015, whether that is the case depends on how much more opposition there is in the coming weeks to delay the bill.
