European Gaming Regulators Preparing Annual Conference

2 April 1998

The European Gaming Regulators joined in GREF (Gaming Regulators European Forum) are preparing for their annual conference in May. This time, they will come together in Helsinki, Finland. The main issue of the conference program is the focus on the developments on Internet gambling. Finland does already have a lot of experience with their online lotto organization, Veikkaus. In accordance with the existing European gambling laws, Veikkaus is only offering an online betting service for Finns. This system could be implemented in several other European jurisdictions as well, depending on the outcome of this conference.
