Adriana Maldonado Unveils Initiative to Regulate Online Gambling
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

PSN MP Adriana Maldonado, a member of the Committee on the Internal Markets and Consumer Protection, has unveiled an initiative in the European Parliament to regulate online gambling and advertising.

The Socialist Europarliamentary has sent a letter to all members of the European Parliament to collect the maximum number of signatures and send it to the Internal Market Commissioner, Thierry Breton.

The brief aims to “alert the problem of online gaming at social and national level in all member states. In the letter, the MP considers that “the efforts of the European Commission for the EU countries to share good practices, cooperate with each other and even apply measures voluntarily, have not been sufficient.”

She urges the Community Executive to “establish a legislative framework with minimum European standards in the field of online gaming advertising” as “the ads are often misleading and biased and can lead to insane and harmful behaviours.”

Measures to limit the gaming industry in Spain will launch in the coming weeks. However, it has already transpired that gambling advertising in Spain will be allowed for 4 hours in the morning ( 1 to 5 am).
