Regulating the gambling Market : Quality-based versus price-based competition
AbstractIn mid-2010, France will open market competition to online gambling and casinos. The market is opening as European law evolves and reacts to the growing number of illegal Internet sites. The ensuing new legal scope targets quality-based competition versus price-oriented competition, especially to contain addictive behaviours, and more specifically, money laundering. Concomitantly, the game market is creating new value chains, including media and telecommunications groups. In the short term, the historic players (Française des Jeux and PMU) are key players in the new landscape, with the long-term horizon pointing to major changes.
