Unibets Parent company, De Kindred Group, recently submitted its application for a permit in the Netherlands to the Gaming Authority. At the end of May of this year, the organization wants to get its permit, as can be read in the 2021 annual report of the company.
Since October 1, 2021, American people can no longer gamble at Unibet. Only one day in advance, September 30, 2021, Kindred announced that it left the American market. The reason was a change in the policy of the ministry and The Gaming Authority. "When can we play on Unibet again?" Many wondered.
According to the organization, the American live life would not take long. At the end of 2021 or early 2022, Kindred thought. In the summer of 2019, Kindred of the Gaming Authority received a cool-down period, which was accompanied by a fine of $ 470,000. Because of that cooling-down period, Kindred had to wait to submit the permit application.
The expectation to go live at the end of last year was therefore not realistic. Ultimately, according to the 2021 annual report, Kindred was only applied for in November 2021 at the Gaming Authority:
"Our American permit application was submitted at the end of November because our" cooling -off period "ended, and the license process is Vooruit, according to Plan. Subject to approval of the license application, we look forward to becoming a close partner of the American community stakeholders and to contribute to a sustainable gambling industry in the Netherlands. ”

Kindred expects the application to be approved within a few months. The live -life of it American Casino Online Then follow quickly:
Normally half a year passes between applying for and granting a permit by the Gaming Authority. On January 19, 2021 at a webinar of Gaming in Holland, chairman of the Gaming Authority René Janssen told, which is not a hard deadline for six months.
The quality of the permit application determines how long the decision of the Gaming Authority takes. If the application is well written and there are no objections from the Gaming Authority, the application will be granted faster. The expectation of Kindred that it will get green light at the end of May this year will come true.
