This study focuses on the land-based gambling market (casinos and slot machines). Policy on the gambling market is based on public-interest aims such as preventing gambling addiction and protecting consumers. The study examines various market and regulatory models for the gambling market, the key question being whether suitable and attractive gambling facilities can be provided while safeguarding the public interest. It also looks at how to design the transition to a particular market order, which will have consequences for Holland Casino.
