GBGC Global Gambling Report Updates
January 2012
100 country reports updated in the Global Gambling Report this month.

The legal opinion published by the DOJ regarding the Wire Act in the US before Christmas is extensively covered in the US country report.
Recent details on possible gaming expansion are covered in various US state country reports: Massachusetts, Florida, New York, and Kentucky.
In the Taiwan country report we have included the details of the fine handed to the sports lottery as a result of the scandal uncovered in 2011.
Developments in casino advertising and lottery taxes have been added to the Indian report.
The latest casino and gambling revenues from Macau in 2011 have been added to that country report. 

For the UK there have been updates to a number of ongoing issues: machine games duty, the Tote, sports rights, the Health Lottery and revenues from operators like Betfred, Gala Coral, and Bet365. 
GBGC has also updated key European markets – including Denmark, Spain, France, Italy, Germany, and Greece – with the latest regulatory developments in both the land-based and Internet gambling sectors.
The Key Markets Database has also been greatly expanded with new countries and some 3,000 additional data points. The database now encompasses some 86% of global gambling revenues and is a useful resource for seeing the extent of gambling in markets around the world. 

GBGC’s specialist gambling indices – the GBGC 50 and iGBGC – have been updated in January too and their performance can be viewed in the subscription files.
