Bienkowska (EU): “Gaming regulations, including player protection measures and those for the protection of minors, vary according to EU Member States”

“In view of the Commission’s decision of 7 December 2017 to close all open infringement procedures and complaints in the gambling sector, the Commission did not carry out the planned assessment of the implementation of the recommendation on consumer and child protection of online gaming services “. This is the response of the European Commissioner for the Internal Market, Elzbieta Bienkowska, to the questioning of the European Parliament member Lynn Boylan (GUE / NGL) on the online gaming sector. “According to the information available to the Commission, many measures appear to be implemented in all Member States, with some measures adopted following the recommendation while others are planned in the future. Since there is no specific EU legislation for the gaming sector, the gaming regulations, including player protection measures and child protection measures, vary according to EU Member States, “he concluded.
