The bill put forward by the new Italian government, which is now under consideration, has been criticized by experts in the gaming industry. They believe that the adoption of this initiative poses a threat to the country’s gambling market.
According to local publications, the adoption of the new law will affect the policy of the Italian gambling apparatus, and the region will incur losses. In particular, the liquidation of slot machines and video lottery terminals is not ruled out.
At the very least, it is planned to restrict the placement of terminals to strictly designated places. The issue of increasing the distance from gambling zones to residential buildings and educational institutions is also being considered.
But what the Italian authorities are steadfast in is the decision to ban any advertising of gambling services and introduce special club cards that confirm the identity of visitors to gambling establishments.
Operators of gambling services in Italy are naturally worried about potential losses.
