Online gambling in Italy: Less restricted than before!

Online poker was since a few years a global event. Like other European countries, Italy has many online poker websites as well as many different players involved in poker tournaments held online in the country. Online gambling in Italy is indeed regulated by the authorities and fans can legally play online, but it's very limited. But since last July, a new update was provided by the Italian regulation authority. Licensed operators can now offer online casino games but in regard to changes in online poker, these operators will have to wait until November. As for games like online slot machines, players should wait the first quarter of 2012.

There are many Italian players enrolling in online casinos if we look at the turnover that online gambling sector generated in 2011 (€ 10 billion) and for the year 2012 (nearly € 20 billion). In terms of tax, the Amministrazione Autonoma dei Monopoli di Stato or AAMS, the equivalent of ARJEL in France, requires 20% of the profits of online casinos. On the Italian market, Playtech is the largest software developer of online games. The company was already present in the Italian market of online gambling since 2008 and poker had a special place with the iPoker network. From this month of November 2011, fans of online poker in the country of Berlusconi can play poker cash games which is the poker game mode offering the fastest way to make money.
