Netherlands wants more player protection on judi online
In the Netherlands, consultations on the new gambling law are ongoing. This is intended to ensure stronger player protection in the online area, which licensed providers to have to fulfil. Among other things, each licensee should employ its own gaming addiction officer. There is also a debate as to whether non-European companies will have to have a physical branch in the Netherlands in the future. In addition, the areas of social gaming and judi online gambling should be more clearly separated from each other.
Delays in new judi online gambling law in Malta
The new law does not bring any major cuts but deals intensively with the topics of anti-money laundering and player protection. In addition, the licensing system will be simplified and merged for online gambling and land-based casinos. In the future, there will only be two types of licenses, a B2B and a B2C license. Previously, different licenses had been issued for different offers and services.

The British Overseas Territory of Gibraltar is known as a gambling and tax paradise and generates a large part of its budget through the issuing of gambling licenses.

Judi online casinos as a leisure activity
In Eastern Europe, more and more people are looking for a leisure activity that they can practice from home. What is better than online gambling? You can often play your favourite game with friends and even win money. Eastern Europe didn’t think much of it for a long time, but more and more illegal operators were bustling about on the market and here one wanted to intervene naturally. How could this work better than with legalization, but with strong conditions? However, each of the Eastern European countries has its own laws in this regard and its own regulations.
