EU countries lacking behind in enforcement against unlicensed gambling providers

30 November 2017

Brussels, 30 November 2017 – Providers of online gambling services are continuing to target jurisdictions without the mandatory licence in the respective country. It is estimated that up to 50 % of total online gambling revenue is generated in countries where the respective operator does not hold the required licence. Despite tools being available to national policy-makers to tackle this issue through strong and effective enforcement, many countries seem to lack the political will to tackle this issue.
