April's edition of the World Online Gambling Law Report

Fantasy sports are causing a regulatory furore in the United States, and almost every day sees a governmental opinion, court ruling or new draft bill in one state or another, either seeking to regulate Daily Fantasy Sports ('DFS') or looking to ban it. There hasn't been the same hullabaloo in the UK, but that doesn't mean there isn't speculation as to how DFS operators will fare here. Andrew Tottenham of consultancy Tottenham & Co gives his opinion on the prospects for fantasy sports in the British market. 

Michigan has surprised some commentators by being the latest US state to put forward a bill to regulate online poker and casino games. While there's a way to go yet, we report on how the current lack of real opposition to the bill and Michigan's existing online lottery offerings could prove to be good omens for i-gaming regulation in the Wolverine State. 

Colombia is another jurisdiction where new online gambling regulation is on the cards. Yet the draft reforms in this South American country may not prove to be good tidings for Colombians looking to operate their own online gambling sites, and may instead simply leave the market open for foreign operators, as Carlos Buitrago and Luis Fernandez opine in their feature article this month. 

PLUS: Nagaland passes a law to regulate skill games - Salzburg bill seeks to regulate online gambling - GB social responsibility measures may hurt profits - the GDPR and the gambling industry - Slovenia's proposed Gaming Act changes - virtual betting expansion in Italy - .bet and .poker domain name extensions - taxation in the Russian betting sector - Line investigated in Japan over virtual currency issues.
