Online Gambling in Europe
The European Parliament voted to call on the European Commission to start exploring ways to fight illegal online gambling and protect consumers. The main objective is to create common standards and cooperation between the members of the European Union.
The resolution was that Member States propose a licensing model to ensure security standards for consumers and to guarantee that operators will meet the online gambling standards of the EU. This were great news for online gambling operators all over the world, as it is a step forward in the regulation and legalization of online gambling across the globe.
