A player gets into CRUKS?

Everybody can get registered voluntarily in CRUKS. Casino’s and operators are obliged to monitor the gaming behavior of players. If they suspect a gambling addiction, they must report this to the gaming authority KSA. KSA will decide if they add the player to CRUKS or not. CRUKS prevents players with serious gambling issues to bet at (online) casinos. A registered person will get guidance to get rid of the gambling addiction. The ultimate responsibility lies with the player. Registration is for maximal 6 months.

CRUKS as entry control

A license holder has to maintain a closed-door policy. This means that an online casino has to establish the identity of a player in a reliable manner, after this they have to do the CRUKS check every time a player logs in. Only after this check (when the outcome is negative) the player is allowed to gamble. The same rule applies to offline casinos, the identity and IBAN of every visitor must be checked, as well as the CRUKS register. If a casino does give entry to a player that is registered in CRUKS, then there is a chance that they will lose the license and get a fine.

Active prevention policy is mandatory

Besides the iDIN, IBAN-Name and CRUKS check, an active prevention policy is obliged by KOA for license holders. This prevention policy must be applied and verifiable. For example, players need a profile, in this profile it must be visible how many deposits the player makes, what his/her deposit limit is or amount each day. When a player is showing risky behavior, the player needs to be contacted.

Identity, IBAN and CRUKS check


When we take a gamble, CRUKS and AML rules are at play. As a player, you must truthfully enter your personal data (first name, last name, date of birth, address, BSN), after which the data need to be checked. iDIN is a reliable, efficient and customer-friendly way to verify personal data. In order to combat money laundering and fraud, it is also necessary to check whether deposits/withdrawals from/to a player are made via an account number that is actually in his/her name. The direct IBAN-Name check on the bank database is a smart solution for this. The player doesn’t have to do anything, and the operator still receives an instant answer from the bank whether the given IBAN actually belongs to the player. Finally, the CRUKS check has to be done. There are three CRUKS checks: initial BSN CRUKS check; initial Foreign CRUKS check and follow-up CRUKS check. CRUKS retour message: registered/not registered. If you want to know more about KOA, the license application or our iDIN-IBAN-CRUKS package, please contact Bluem.
