In a recent edition of the Gaming Law Review Dr Alan Littler and Professor Julia Hörnle (Centre for Commercial Legal Studies, Queen Mary University London) have published an article on the Report completed for the European Commission Evaluation of regulatory tools for enforcing online gambling rules and channeling demand towards controlled offers.
The article provides a brief overview of national gambling regulators’ competences and experiences in terms of enforcement techniques used against locally unlicensed games of chance, notably; website blocking, payment blocking, advertising, the possible role of gambling software providers and the administrative and criminal sanctions which Member States can apply. Attention is also briefly directed to how Member States evaluate the effectiveness of their enforcement measures before turning towards recommendations for future research.
