More and more countries are looking towards tightening the rules and implementing harsher Responsible Gambling programs in the industry that affect operators, software providers and affiliates. Many have stated that the year 2017 and 2018 are the years in which the Next Phase in Responsible Gambling is going to be implemented.

This is why the organizing team at European Gaming Media and Events has invited the top names of the industry to speak about AML and Responsible Gambling in a dedicated panel which is titled “Responsible Gambling, AML and Gambling Licensing Procedures in the European Union

Tom Edmonds (Harris Hagan) is the final expert who will join the panel as a speaker. When asked to characterize his particular interest of the area in the industry where sports and gambling meet, Tom replied the following:

There has been a significant tightening of the rules regarding advertising of gambling, including those adverts shown around televised sporting events.  At the time of writing (mid-February 2018), the advertising regulator in Great Britain has just issued wide ranging new guidance that is intended to have a substantial impact on the content (and tone) of such adverts.  Adverts will have to change but we wait to see how significantly operators will change their adverts and what action is taken against non-compliant operators.
