Slovenia’s Ministry of Finance has announced plans to review the country’s gambling strategy.

This comes close to 13 years after Slovenia’s government adopted the current regulations, on 16 December 2010. In a statement, the ministry said the review would seek to update the current strategy and enact “further systemic changes” in the industry.

The updated strategy will consider issues such as the granting of concessions and responsible gambling regulations.

To carry out the review, the ministry will bring in an external independent contractor who will come up with proposals. These proposals will be based on prior analysis of Slovenia’s gambling sector and will also consider the regulations outlined in other states in the European Union and case law of the EU Court of Justice.
