Ireland is a country with constantly progressing gambling laws as gambling is deeply engraved in the Irish culture for centuries. Currently, there are many cities which offer completely legal gambling facilities. There are multiple legal casinos options and most of them are located in Dublin, which makes it the largest gambling city in Ireland. All forms of gambling and betting were considered legal throughout the country due to several loopholes in the laws. Recently, Ireland introduced the option of licensing to several gaming operators running throughout the country under the “Betting(Amendment) Bill.” Due to this upgrade in the legislation, non-Irish operators consider Ireland as an attractive location which directly means one thing — multiple options available to players.
The gaming operators were anticipating this law for a while and with the introduction of the same, the face of Ireland’s gambling world has completely altered. The world looked at this step by the Irish government as an important development in the online spectrum.
In the words of Ireland’s finance minister Michael Noonan: “The Betting Amendment Bill is just a first step in providing for a well regulated betting and gambling regime. This Bill will allow for the regulation of those providing betting services by remote means to persons within the jurisdiction for the first time. This is a major step in the right direction. The implementation of the regulatory regime for remote operators will also allow for the extension of betting duty to these companies.”
As a player too, one is bound to feel free and safe while indulging at casinos: online or at the venues. Due to the lawful gambling culture in Ireland, people nationally and internationally are gradually deviating towards the country. The liberal approach allows everyone to promote and compete at a healthy level. Especially, if one wants to be a part of private members clubs, there is no scope of damages pertaining to legality whatsoever.
