Italy Considers Gaming

Italy is looking to enter the world of online gaming, and has suggested regulations to allow online casinos to
open by the end of the year. The government has been forced to look to other sources of income to help offset economic hardships caused by the worldwide recession. While the government is willing to take a second look at online casinos, there is speculation that the national regulator, the State Monopolies Autonomous Administration, is not yet ready to address the issue. If any regulations come, they are likely to start with online poker before additional casino games are introduced.
