Share Article

A recent survey of over 30 industry leaders indicated that information was desperately needed to address key concerns in the gaming industry.

The Legal Gaming in Europe Summit is in its 5th sell out year and is a must-attend for everyone who is looking beyond the markets to size up their business prospects in countries where the tide is turning in favour of legitimate online gaming and gambling

A multitude of legal battles, blurred legislation and a distinct lack of harmonization across the continent, means that trying to do business for operators and service providers in the gaming and gambling industry is tough

The one certainty is that the regulatory sands are shifting – which could be good news - with individual countries identifying regulation as a well-timed source of climb-out-of-recession taxes. However, the biggest challenge facing the industry is keeping up-to-speed with the ever-changing multitude of legislation options and implications.

A recent survey of over 30 industry leaders indicated that information was desperately needed to address key concerns including;

  •     a country by country legal breakdown due to the lack of harmonization
  •     updates on regulation, licensing and taxation
  •     understanding the European Commission position going into 2011
  •     progress of operators tackling infringements
  •     timelines for the US and developments following the mid-term elections
