Chapter Summary

This chapter considers three separate aspects of regulating gambling in France. It describes the current system for managing gambling in France through a breakdown necessary to study the various components of the regulatory regime. The chapter paid attention to these various components, such as crimes and misdemeanours, while discussing the numerous conflicts, both major and minor in scale and nature, which have arisen for a number of years in France particularly since the sudden appearance of internet gambling sites. Indeed, the rapid spread of such sites led to the authors description of them as ?a storm sweeping across games in Europe.? The chapter considers the serious issue of gambling addiction, which is a growing problem in France, causing vast individual and social damage.
