On the occasion of the annual GREF (European Forum of Gambling Regulators) conference in Wiesbaden, Germany, GGL Executive Board member Benjamin Schwanke presented the current status of GGL's set-up and the planned next steps for taking over operational tasks to the European gambling regulators on 1 June.
In the future, the GGL will act as an essential coordinating body for the cooperation between European and German gambling regulators. The GGL website with information on the State Treaty on Gaming and the transnational regulation of the German gaming market has also been available in English since June.
Schwanke offered at the GREF to share German expertise in the field of prevention in exchange with other European authorities. The GGL also sees a focus of European cooperation in particular on the topics of gambling manipulation, such as preventing the use of bots, and combating illegal gambling.
At the GREF annual meeting, which was professionally organised this year by the Hessian Ministry of the Interior, the representatives of the European regulatory authorities exchanged views in particular on artificial intelligence, regulatory experiences, enforcement strategies and the latest developments in the European gambling market.
In order to further expand the exchange with European regulators, the Board will speak at the european gambling regulators meeting, which will be organised by the EGBA, the European Gaming Association, on 15 June.
