Vilotte (Arjel): “Online gaming, a complex market needs a public intervention”
Rome – At the meeting of today between AAMS and Arjel Jean-Francois Vilotte, president of the regulationg body about online gaming explained: “For over a year we signed the first European cooperation agreement between two member states. Italy and France did not need to find by the European Commission that other regulating bodies existed – he ironically adds – we looked around and we started to work. The Italian and French regulations have some basic fundamental objectives, such as the consumer protection and the attention to the impact of these activities on the community in terms of gambling addiction, but also of transparency from the point of view of sports frauds. The online gaming market is very complex and the control of its regulations can not be left in the hands of the operators. It needs a strong public intervention”.
