This highly topical book analyses the conflicts between different regulatory regimes governing online gambling in the international context and how these affect the cross-border provision of online gambling. States fundamentally disagree on how to regulate gambling, for moral, religious and social reasons, and therefore regulatory regimes differ, ranging from the prohibitionist to the permissive. The authors examine the latest legislation and cases concerning online gambling by comparing different regulatory models. They also explain conflict of laws issues, including which state or court is competent, which law is applicable, and what rules govern enforcement in cross-border e-gambling disputes. Invaluably, the book makes sense of the myriad of cases in the EU internal market and the WTO. This unique book represents a detailed examination of the international law issues of cross-border online gambling. It will prove to be useful for academic scholars as well as postgraduate and advanced undergraduate students. Legal advisors of the gambling sector, regulators and policymakers, government departments and agencies, as well as intergovernmental and international organizations will also find this book an enriching resource.
