The blacklist in Belgium: almost 200,000 gamblers are on it
Voluntary or forcedThe vast majority of these people – about 84 percent, or a total of 158,413 people – are on the list at the hands of the judge. The most common reason for this is that these players have become addicted and have fallen into debt. A large number of other people, 29,319 players, asked to be included on the list themselves because they fear that they will not be able to resist the temptation. Finally, four hundred other Belgians have been added to the list at the request of a family member or partner.
Because of the professionThen there is a group of people of about 10,000 people who are automatically added to the list because of their occupation. In this case, this includes police officers, bailiffs, judges, and notaries. Under no circumstances should they get into debt, otherwise others would be able to exercise power over them. This group is not included in the total number of 188,000.
Different policy than in the NetherlandsThe black list is part of the Belgian rules for games of chance, which are somewhat different than in the Netherlands. Online games of chance have been allowed for a while, but there are no fewer than nine different permits at our southern neighbors. For example, Belgian providers of online games of chance must have a land-based casino. So it's not all made easier in Belgium. But at least they have regulation for remote games of chance. We can't say that about our country yet.
