With Denmark getting the green light to offer online gambling licenses and countries like Germany, Belgium and Hungary moving towards legalizing and regulating gambling, the need to set forth guidelines to regulate online gambling activities is becoming more and more pertinent.  The Remote Gambling Association (RGA) is the largest and most esteemed trade association for Europe’s online gambling company.  Their members include Microgaming, Playtech and Virgin. They have taken the important task of outlining online gambling regulations for Europe into their hands.

 

They recently published a report entitled “Online Gambling: Key objectives for a successful regulatory and tax framework” which is geared mainly towards governments and other regulatory bodies.  In the report, they discuss key issues that need to be addressed.  Naturally their interest is to protect its members (some of the biggest companies in the industry) but in turn, they are also working hard to protect players in order to establish long-term success.  To document covers issues including taxation, how a regulatory body can achieve fair competition and how to protect minors and problem gamblers. 

 

The report suggests that third party companies should market the products and that issues like social responsibility and how involved the regulating body should be need to be carefully considered.  The document also discusses different product verticals and how they should be addressed individually and as a whole.  The “punch line” is that regulating online gambling activities should be a long-term effort and that due to fast-advancing technology, regulation and the surrounding discussions will need to be ongoing.
