Europe biggest market for online gambling industry
Last year, the United States was still the biggest market for online gambling, but due to regulatory issues in several states the growth on the American market has declined.
European regulatory problems
That said, it is certainly not the case that European countries don’t experience regulatory issues with online gambling. The Spanish government is trying to push a new online gambling bill, to fight the economical problems in Spain. The Danish have come up with a new, regulated online gambling system, but Danish legislators haven’t approved this new system yet. Many non-Danish operators aren’t too happy with this new system, because if this new system will be implemented on the 1st of January, they will have to pay 20% tax over their total revenue to the Danish government.
