Chapter Summary

For centuries national governments in Europe, for all sorts of reasons, have been responsible not only for the organisation of the gambling market, but also for the nature, scale and integrity of the forms of gambling available. Since the Member States together make up the European Union, and within that form the Economic Community, they do not have the liberty or the autonomy to formulate an appropriate answer to the aforementioned challenge of their own individual accord. In its successive judgments, the European Court of Justice (ECJ) has never dared go this far, though it has sympathized with the problems that the Member States have to contend with in this market. The upshot of these conflicting perspectives on the situation is that not only do Member States not know where they stand in the short and longer term; private entrepreneurs are also left in a state of uncertainty.

Keywords: Europe; European Court of Justice (ECJ); European Union; gambling market; Member States
