The fourth informal meeting of online gambling regulators took place in Rome, Italy, and a lot was covered.
According to a press release from the Autonomous Administration of the State Monopolies (AAMS), which is Italy’s regulator, representatives from the authorities of France, Germany, Italy, Portugal, Spain and the United Kingdom converged to talk about “a further improvement of the information sharing and good practices exchange among the regulators and developing advice to feed into the European Commission Expert Group.”
The participants shared their views on a plethora of topics, including: regulatory evolution of domestic markets, EU ongoing work on online gambling, the different control systems, the exchange of standardized market data, the role of game suppliers, the technical standards and skill games and the legal issues linked to the exchange of personal data.
A notable absence from the topics was sharing online gambling liquidity across Europe.
The next meeting will be held next fall in Germany.
