The close of 2011 saw the European Parliament (EP) change its attitude towards gambling regulation. The EP voted on 15 November in favour of the Creutzmann Report, which called for a European Directive providing minimum standards to regulate online gambling services across Europe. David Clifton, a Partner at Joelson Wilson LLP, evaluates the responses to the Creutzmann Report and the European Commission's Green Paper, and examines what the future holds for online gambling services in 2012.
