The gaming market in the European Union is not uniformly regulated. Instead, the so-called Principle of Subsidiarity applies. In its jurisprudence, the European Court of Justice has elaborated a number of principles that apply across the EU. These include, for example, the requirement for a gaming licensing system or the responsible advertising of gaming products and services.
Casinos Austria International also has extensive experience with Anglo-American legal systems through its prior or existing business activities, e.g. in the UK, USA, Canada or Australia.
