Online poker: Slowdown of the process of liquidities sharing in Europe

These last years, online poker in Europe knows a slowdown to the point to worry European operators and regulators. The sharing of liquidities on poker tables has been evoked several times during the meetings of main authorities of regulation of online gambling, among which those of France, Spain, Italy or Germany. But the process has become more complicated but the regulators have something to settle as a matter of priority. In fact, the sharing of liquidities on the market of poker in Europe isn’t a priority for regulators, especially after that France has retired from the project. The French amendment n°262 on the consumer law has been rejected by legislators in December 2013. This text would have allowed the country, and more precisely to the French Regulation Authority of online gambling (ARJEL), to open on the European market of online poker, thanks to the sharing of liquidities of poker tables.

Spain and Italy have been the most serious in the decompartmentalization of their tables of poker, but Spanish and Italian regulation authorities seem to have other immediate priority than the establishment of this project, at least for this year. In Spain, the first and foremost is currently the regulation of slot machines and the entry of new operators of online poker on its local market. From its part, the Italian regulation authority is more concerned by tax questions in a market which represents the double of Spanish market.
