Fifteen gambling regulators from across Europe, as well as Washington State Gambling Commission, have signed an agreement to work together to address the risks created by the blurring of lines between gaming and gambling.

Regulators identify in some emerging gaming products and services similar characteristics that led to their respective regulations of online gambling. While committing themselves to work together to thoroughly analyze the characteristics of video games and social gaming, they call for a constructive dialogue with the responsible representatives of the video games and social gaming industries.

This Declaration remains open for signature to all interested gambling regulatory authorities.
