It was not until 2006 that the liberalisation of the Italian online casino and online gambling market began in earnest following a 2003 complaint. The case was formally investigated by the European Commission and infringement proceedings were officially launched against Italy. Gambling has a long and colourful history in Italy that can be traced back to the Roman Empire. The first known gambling house, “Ridotto,” was first opened in 1683 in Venice. The house operated with the government’s approval and was designed to make gambling official as a means of controlling the gambling behaviours of the citizens.
Gibraltar first started issuing gambling licenses in 1998 and these licenses are currently managed by the Gibraltar Regulatory Authority (GRA). All gambling activities that take place in Gibraltar need to comply with the Gambling Act of 2005 (“the Act”) and the GRA issues all gambling and gaming licenses, including those for online- and telephone-based operations, in accordance with this act. The Gambling Commissioner, who is awarded responsibilities under the Act, is tasked with ensuring that all license holders manage their operations in compliance with the requirements of their licenses and act in a manner that upholds the integrity and reputation of Gibraltar.
