More Online Gambling liberalisation in Italy?

More Online Gambling liberalisation in Italy?

The still restrictive laws on offering Online Gambling to Italians could be in for a more enlightened remake, industry observers are speculating. And it could happen before the end of this (2009) year.

The reason behind the optimism is a recent slew of Italian "crisis legislation" proposals prompted by tough economic conditions and natural disasters this year, which have increased the need for additional tax revenues. However, anticipation should be moderated by the fact that the national regulator, the AAMS, has yet to make any formal announcements on what is and is not allowed, and when implementation might take place.

The speculation is that the Italians may be about to add cash games to lighten up the "tournaments only" regulations for online poker, and that online casino games will be added to the list of permissible online activities, along with new licences for scratchcard gaming.

The delay is reportedly not with the politicians, but with the regulator.
