Europe’s monthly online gambling news Demise Of EU Expert Group Decried A member of European Parliament (MEP) has promised to inquire into the fate of the European Union’s Expert Group on Gambling Services after former regulators complained about its demise. Francesco Rodano, the former head of Italy’s gambling regulator, grumbled about the recent expiration of the expert group, a cross-border organisation at which EU regulators from countries including Malta, the Netherlands and Italy met to discuss common issues. “We learned a lot, we learned from each other, and now it’s killed,” said Rodano, currently a Playtech executive.

Issue 30: Online Gambling Focus - Winter 2018

November 2018

Responsible gambling tools are the focus of our last Online Gambling Focus of 2018. Digital innovations are changing the online world as we know it. And these changes are bringing with it new challenges– and opportunities – to protect players in online gambling. The development of mobile apps, artificial intelligence, as well as online self-exclusion registers, all have an important role to play in keeping players safe online. But these shouldn’t let us forget about more traditional and equally necessary tools, such as education and its role in raising awareness about problem gambling behaviour. In this edition we are pleased to have contributions from Miriam Dalli, a member of the European Parliament, and Paul Buck, CEO and founder of EPIC Risk Management.
