Online betting and gaming regulation 2014

In Europe the trend for country-by-country regulation of online betting and gaming (referred to here as gaming) is continuing with a number of countries considering regulation of online gaming or changes to their existing regulatory regime. The online regulatory regime now looks very different to a few years ago.

The US online regulatory scene is also changing. State-by-state regulation is emerging (online gaming having launched in Nevada and New Jersey) with Federal regulation potentially on the horizon.

In this short paper we outline our perspectives on the likely evolution of regulation, the effects of online gaming regulation and what makes regulation more likely to be successful.
