Three gambling associations known as the Alliance have declared war on illegal gambling. The alliance includes European Lotteries, European Casino Association and World Tote Association. They plan to create a mechanism through which users can notify about possible illegal online operators and illegal games.
They refer to illegal operators that are licensed in a jurisdiction that does not give them the right to operate in a specific market. For example, with a Curacao license to serve British citizens.
Curacao, as the main supplier of rogue operators, is now under scrutiny from the Netherlands. Under financial pressure, they once again promised to reform the online gambling industry and make operators stop serving players they are not allowed to accept.
