While poker advocates in the US continue to fight for a fair deal, things across the Atlantic in Italy seem to be taking a turn for the worse.
According to a recent senate report, the Italian government has just made a move to outlaw the advertisement of online poker via TV and radio. The move was proposed by socialist party member Senator Riccardo Nencini who believes the law is necessary to stop compulsive gambling.Despite initial opposition to the bill, the senate eventually voted in favour of the amendment which means it could now be passed into law. Nencini's push seems to be just one part of Italy's broader change of stance towards online poker. According to eGaming Review, the Italian government is considering changing the tax levied on online gaming operators from operator turnover to gross gaming revenue. Overall it seems that online poker in Italy is set for a major shakeup in the coming months, but whether or not this will benefit the players remains to be seen.
