Legal challenges continue to bedevil EU gambling laws this week. The EU Commission has launched its first ever case to do with gambling laws, referring Sweden to the CJEU.

The UK government and regulator may have breathed a sigh of relief when the GBGA challenge was rejected in the High Court, but the GBGA has launched a second case claiming that the Finance Act which introduces the point of consumption tax framework is contrary to EU treaties.
