The European online casino market passes through some needed and complicated changes recently. Although Europe is the biggest market for this kind of activity in the world, there is a very wide variety and differences among the European countries. In the present, online casino operators are pressing the European Union authorities to take measures in order to establish a homogenous direction for all European countries. Recently, a report about online gambling called the Creutzmann report has been established and on November 15, the European Union Parliament assembled to discuss and approve this report. Although this report did not contain all the necessary measures, its approval is a big step forward for the industry.

The Creutzmann report contains many positive measures and recommendations for the online gambling industry. The most important point is the directive that the European Commission will be able to take action against national regulatory regimes that do not comply with the European law. So far, there was no action in this direction, but with the approval of this report, there is a regulatory base for this action. The Creutzmann report supports the theory that online gambling activities are done across national borders so the national solutions cannot work for a general state of facts. The report also suggests that the EU should provide clear directions to all bodies in the industry. The report also underlines all the necessary steps that should be undertaken in order to establish a more liberalized and secure online gambling market.

First of all, the standards should be established for all operators, for consumer protection, promotion and identification. Then, there should be a simple and more efficient licence application procedure, so that those operators who have been approved in some states should not undertake the same difficult procedures if they apply for a licence in another state. The approval of this report is a complete turn in the usual European Union position regarding online casinos. Some time ago, the European Commission adopted other directives that were allowing all national bodies to establish their own regulatory environment concerning online gambling, even if it came in contradiction with the European laws.
