On 1 October from 12 noon onwards, any player can voluntarily register in Cruks, the Central Register Exclusion of Gambling. From this moment on, it is only possible to gamble legally online in the Netherlands. From Friday 1 October, 10 online casinos may open, but because Cruks is only active from 12:00 noon, they may only go live then.
Cruks is a list of players who take a break from gambling. With a registration in Cruks, a player can immediately stop gambling on Dutch gambling sites for at least six months, and not in Dutch gambling halls or casinos.
Registration in Cruks is possible because the player himself wants this, because an owner of a gambling site proposes it or after a request from a loved one.
