Last month I wrote an article for World Online Gambling Report about the converging worlds of games and gambling – and what all this could mean from a legal and business perspective. Here’s a taster: “There are growing arguments that [certain games could already be regulated under gambling law]… At that stage, the games industry may realise that it has been sleepwalking towards at least some degree of gambling regulation, following which it may wake up and want to do something about it. At that point, expect a debate about the more fundamental question of whether games should be subject to gambling law, or whether their nature qua games means they should be treated separately.”
