Dialogue

NOGA stands for a constructive dialogue with all stakeholders in the Dutch gaming industry, based as much as possible on facts and numbers added with the contribution of its expertise gained in the Netherlands and in other European online gambling markets. The affiliated members make their knowledge and experience available in close cooperation and consultation with Dutch government and other actors to arrive at an appropriate legislative framework that provides for an open licensing system for online gambling in the Netherlands, in which the consumer is protected and integrity in the market ensured.

Channelisation and information

NOGA’s main objective is channelisation: a gambling market in which Dutch consumers can legally gamble online, on websites of their choice as much as possible or exclusively with various providers with a online licence issued by the Dutch government. Channelisation increases when players have access to an attractive and varied legal offering that is determined by gaming fun, different game types and game safety.

In addition, NOGA provides information and documentation on all aspects of online gambling, such as responsible gambling, the development of the games of the gambling market at national and European level and integrity within sports.
