EU - Commission to launch a public consultation on online gambling services

(RAPID)
The European Commission will publish a Green Paper on online gambling services in the Internal Market. The aim is to launch an extensive public consultation on all relevant public policy challenges and possible Internal Market issues resulting from the rapid development of both licit and unauthorised online gambling offers directed at citizens in the EU. Its fundamental purpose is to collect the facts, assess the stakes and to gather the views of all interested stakeholders on a phenomenon that has multiple dimensions.
