German Gambling Laws Violate EU Rules

 

A European Union high court ruled that Germany’s betting restrictions contravened EU law.

The European Court of Justice declared that the rules for the German state betting monopolies were not “consistent and systemic enough” to uphold the argument that restrictions served to protect the public from gambling addiction, the Financial Times of London reported on Wednesday.

Online Gambling In The US: Ladbrokes, William Hill Likely To Lose Out

 

With the very real possibility that Congressman Barney Frank could lose his chairmanship position should the Republicans take over the House come November, online poker federal legislation must pass prior to Election Day or else there will likely be no “start over” time come 2011.  Ladbrokes, William Hill and other European sports betting ventures itching to get into the U.S. market still may be blocked since Frank’s legislation pertains only to online poker.

Enter the individual states.

Last week Gambling911.com reported on how the Poker Players Alliance (PPA) condemned California’s largest poker room, the Commerce Casino, for opposing legislation that would essentially allow for licensing of online poker rooms in the U.S.  The bill, sponsored by Congressman Barney Frank, would require strict licensing of such virtual card rooms, all of which would presumably be based on the United States proper.

Presently, all Internet poker rooms operate outside the U.S., though a few still accept players from the States.
