Will Cyprus Ban Online Gambling?January 15th, 2011
Author: Carmine Dutrow
Cyprus is following Portugal in its attempt to ban online casino operations within its jurisdictions to keep the increasing crime rate under control. Analysts, however, have doubts that the European Commission will give its approval to Cyprus, despite of the clear statement that no country in the Union can stop other member-countries from dealing business within the area of jurisdiction. It has to be noted that online gambling has been included as one of the limitations, and nauraly the European Commission will appeal Cypprus’ viewpoint.
France, Spain and Italy are the countries that have already allowed and legalized online gambling.
