Regulation of the European gambling market : The EGBA interpellates

To put an end to the fragmentation of European markets, the European Gaming and Betting Association (EGBA) seized the European Commission. The EGBA also filed a complaint with the Commission following the new regulation on gambling introduced in Germany. So, by the end of October, the Commission should present its Action Plan and reporting on online games. On its side, the EGBA expresses its expectations by calling the Commission to take its responsibilities to the current fragmentation of online game markets in Europe, facing the consumer protection often victims of fraud by adding that with the absence of regulation, these illegal sites will continue their scam at the expense of vulnerable people like underage players.

If in the past, the internal market commissioner Michel Barnier said the need for legal operators to offer "attractive products" to fight against websites not regulated, it is clear to Sigrid Ligne, secretary general of the EGBA that the situation has not changed, no infringement procedure was initiated. Worse, currently "27 mini-markets" operate in Europe, she expects that the Commission could propose a regulatory framework to ensure better consumer protection, avoiding fraudulent environment. She also calls for licensing to be done fairly and transparently for all regulated operators in Europe. Also, helped by several industrial partners, the EGBA also lodged a complaint with the Commission against Germany. Indeed, the German games regulator is currently granting gaming licenses from a very controversial granting criteria. Note that the Greek monopoly OPAP is also in its sights.
