The European Court of Justice has finally started supporting the efforts of the European Commission in forcing countries to open their doors to foreign gambling companies.
At the moment Spain is hot on the list of the countries breaking EU gambling laws. The disagreement has risen as a result of tax breaks given only to the players winning from Spanish gambling companies, whereas players who gamble and win at offshore online casino sites are to pay taxes on their winnings.
In spite of the fact that Spain is working with relatively open gambling laws now, it still giving clear preference to Spanish based companies. The taxation policy in Spain is, by no means, protective, however, it is not in compliance with the EU laws.
