September's issue of the World Online Gambling Law Report features a range of articles on the most recent legal developments affecting online gambling. To access the entire latest issue, the articles of which are listed in the left hand column of this webpage, sign up for a 7-day free trial here.

To kick off the issue, we have three news stories on developments in Singapore, New Jersey and the UK. Jeff Ifrah of Ifrah Law shares his thoughts on recent action in New Jersey to decriminalise sports wagering, and Yap Wai Ming, Director at Stamford Law Corporation, Lau Kok Keng, Partner at Rajah & Tann LLP, and Michael Palmer, Director at Quahe Woo & Palmer LLC, provide some clarity on Singapore's draft remote gambling bill.

The first full length article examines the potential impact of a decision either way in the case currently before the Supreme Court of India, in which a decision must be made as to the legality of the card game rummy. We also feature an analysis of the principal objections to the Swiss draft gambling law following the consultation period, which ran until mid-August. Another highlight is an update from editorial board member Krystallia M. Iatridou of Karageogiou & Associates, on the current situation in Greece and the continuing monopoly of the gambling market by OPAP despite operators attempts to instigate a licensing procedure.
