The online casino environment in Europe is an important point for the enforcement arm of the European Union, the European Commission (EC). The Commission’s chief, Michael Barnier, stated that in autumn, this year, the EC will publish an action plan to stop unregulated online gambling. The online casino plan outlines measures against illegal online gambling websites in the European Union and those hosted in offshore jurisdictions. Besides that, the action plan will also propose measures to regulate and supervise licensed online gaming sites that operate in the European online casino market.

The European Commission also deals with non-compliant national regulatory regimes and on this matter the Commission has 9 pending infringement procedures and 28 new complaints filed against the gambling regulation of 12 different Member States. These states have a gambling regulation that is in violation of EU policy and the EC will initiate the processing of complaints after contacting the concerned Member States and reminding them of the applicable rules. The procedure states that after this move, the Commission must demand the Member States to rectify the regulatory laws in accordance with current EU laws.

The actions against the Member States are supported by the European Parliament, institution that adopted a report in November 2011 that calls on the Commission to pursue those infringement proceedings that have been pending since 2008. The Commission, which is the “guardian of the Treaties”, will have to deal with the complaints about violations of the freedoms enshrined in the Treaties, regarding online casino regulation.

The EC head also stated that the regulatory framework should enable licensed online casino operators to offer players attractive products. Also, the 7 million Europeans which gamble online should be protected by common measures, wherever they reside and wherever they wager. Analysts say that Michael Barnier’s speech marked a major shift in EU policy, since infringement proceedings were virtually on hold since 2008. The European Commission has an online gambling agenda that will gather measures to help develop a competitive online casino market in Europe, which will bring benefits to internet players that love gambling and also to online casino operators.
