With online gambling getting more popular, many countries have come to the decision to remove their anti casino gambling laws and replace them with gambling regulation. Ireland is not an exception.
Dermot Ahern, the newly appointed Minister for Justice, Equity and Law Reform thinks the casino gambling laws have “past they sell-by date”. In Ahern’s opinion, it is becoming impossible to outlaw casino gambling sites entirely. So, proper regulation is required. But the minister is not going to act hurriedly. First, he feels there is need “to consult with the public and develop cross-party agreement”.
A Casino Regulatory Committee has already produced a report on online casino gambling, though it has not been released yet and there have been no plans made for the regulation of online casino gambling.
