Kambi Group & JVH Form Partnership
A brand new multi-year partnership has been announced between Kambi Group and the leading private casino operator in The Netherlands, JVH gaming & entertainment group (JVH group). This significant move in the Dutch gambling industry paves the way for online gambling growth in the small European nation, pending corresponding regulatory approvals that would enable proper legislation.
JVH to Utilize Kambi Group in Launching Dutch Online Betting Offering
The JVH gaming & entertainment group, part of the larger JVH group, has expressed its intentions in harnessing new partner Kambi Group’s high-performance sportsbook and powerful collection of front-end and price differentiation tools to in turn launch its online sports betting offering in the Dutch gambling market.
This move is anticipated to take place in the second quarter of 2021. However, it is all dependent upon newly pending legislation being passed that would enable new offerings to enter the market, as well as the inclusion of corresponding regulatory approvals.

The group now intends to enter the online gaming market upon the necessary regulation being passed and coming into effect, with an engaging sports betting offer standing as a crucial component of their igaming offering.
