The Digital Revolution in Gambling

The gambling industry is not an economic activity similar to others. In order to remain a leisure activity within the framework of a sustainable model, it seems essential that the offer of games played for money respect four fundamental principles, namely specificity, subsidiarity, security and solidarity. Yet the gambling industry has borne the brunt of the Internet technological revolution. For fifteen years now, the Web has been blurring the borders of a domain of activity described as sensitive, leading to the development of a large number of sites which, due to the lack of regulation, have settled in “gambling paradises” with an excessive offer and very (too) high return rates for players. Unfortunately, civil society is often forced to pay the high price for such an evolution: money laundering, sports corruption and the risks of addiction have increased. The article presents a few suggestions for a different approach to gambling in the future.
