    Default European Commission criticizes German online gaming proposals

    The European Commission has criticized revived proposals from 15 out of 16 German states on a new law for online gambling, saying that any proposed restrictions would need to be justified from the states.

    From Reuters:

    The Commission outlined its criticisms in a letter that has not yet been published but has been seen by Reuters.

    It said it welcomed changes the 15 states had made in areas such as stake sizes and the number of licenses that could enable companies to operate profitably, but it did not have the information to assess the viability of the proposed system.

    It also said the states had not provided data to support a ban on online casino and poker games on the basis that the games were vulnerable to rigging, had significant potential to become addictive and could be exploited for the purpose of money laundering.

    The europea commission seems to not have much power
    they criticizes either the italian system (aams) but in the end they just did what they wanted (cutting out all the competors)

    I agree that many times European countries don't treat the commission with too much respect but at the end of the day, the Italian govenment did allow foreign online gambling operators to enter the Italian market, so maybe the European commission did have some impact on them.
