Chapter Summary

To date the debate on the regulation of gambling in the European Union has mainly focused on the legal aspects. The debate centres on the question of the division of powers between the European Union and its Member States in this area. One interesting detail about the duel between the European Commission and the Member States is that the European Parliament, when it came to the crunch, sided with the Member States and not the European Commission. It is clear from the power struggle just outlined between the European Commission, the Member States and the European Parliament regarding both the division and the exercise of powers with respect to the regulation of gambling in the European Union that the parties involved are waging this battle using mainly legal arguments. From a financial point of view, these estimates might provide grounds for some people to radically change European Union gambling policy.

Keywords: European Commission; European Union gambling policy; institutional power struggle; member states
