14 July, Brussels: Online gambling
The European Commission will adopt a recommendation covering online gambling services to help Member States better protect their citizens. The proposal focuses on three main elements: ensuring EU citizens, especially minors, are aware of the inherent risks associated with gambling; and that operators have a set of common principles to abide by for responsible commercial communication; greater clarity and assurance for consumers that authorised sites they choose to play on have adequate safeguard measures in place, for example effective age verification, registration and identification controls and appropriate measures to help prevent the risks associated with gambling, such as addiction or excessive gambling.
