MHA studying regulatory approaches of other jurisdictions

The Home Affairs Ministry has been studying the regulatory approaches of other jurisdictions for online gambling. 

This follows the public consultation on the government's proposals to restrict it. 

In a recent visit to France, Second Minister for Home Affairs S Iswaran met the Chairman of French online gambling regulator ARJEL to find out more about their experience in regulating remote gambling. 

ARJEL is an independent administrative authority, established in May 2010. 

It protects vulnerable consumers, and ensures the safety and fairness of gaming operations. 

The regulator also comes down on illegal sites, fraud and money laundering. 

An MHA spokesperson says that besides France, they're also studying the experiences of countries such as Hong Kong and Norway.
