EC drops player protection discrimination charges against Austria

This story was published more than 14 years ago.

Legal action against Austria has been halted by the European Commission in cases of player discimination after the Austrians reformed laws designed to protect players.

There were complaints that the laws were discriminatory, favouring Austrian players but not citizens of other European Union nations, and this led to the EC action.

"The European Commission decided to close the infringement case... after reform of the Austrian law on gaming which extended protection for players to all citizens of the EU," a Commission spokesman informed the Reuters news service.
