Abstract

Many European member states claim the need for an autonomous gaming law policy based on their culture, tradition and moral values. In the online world of today, where national boundaries have evaporated and the unity of the world has become a one second reality, these arguments to the very least sound outdated and weak. It does not seem unrealistic to assume that the real arguments justifying the policy of most member states are financial. Gambling regulation generates enormous tax income and the power to subsidize several "good causes". We are talking billions of euros. We argue that the Netherlands should consider breaking this ban, and cooperate with a more transparant gaming policy, on a EU Level.
