The Dutch Lottery uses several rules to protect its players. For example, every person above 18 years old is allowed to play one of the games of the Dutch Lottery. It’s not always easy to verify the age of lottery participants. This is why the Dutch Lottery has introduced an online tool that makes it easier to identify with login details from the bank. The iDIN tool was officially launched on May 30, 2018.
What is iDIN?
iDIN is an online service that has been developed by several Dutch banks. You can log in with it on your gambling account. You get access the same way as with online stores and government agencies. From now on, consumers can use the safe login methods of the bank to access the Dutch Lottery online
Identify your age
The Dutch Lottery will inform her players about iDIN as good as possible. Every current player has already received a message about the implementation of iDIN. Perhaps you’re a participant of the Dutch Lottery. In that case you probably have to identify your age by using iDIN soon.
Reasons to implement iDIN
The Dutch Lottery has a good reason to implement iDIN. It wants to provide games of chance in a responsible manner. Dutch participants must be protected against criminals and hackers. Gambling addictions should be also be prevented. Willemijn Jansen, who acts as the Manager Reponsible Gaming of the Dutch Lottery, says that the safety of the consumer is priority number one. The online tool iDIN is a way to make their safety policy more effective, Jansen told.
Reaction of the Gambling Authority
The Gambling Authority very much agrees with the position of the Dutch Lottery and the implementation of iDIN. Director Marja Appleman says one of the main priorities of the Gambling Authority is to prevent that young people try a game of chance. This why the authority thinks it’s good news that the Dutch Lottery now does an age check among all its online players.
