Top Legal Cases - European Union

Unlike with the other three case studies in our research, there is no clear line of legal cases on online bingo regulation at the European level. However there are many cases dealing with on-line gambling that impact online bingo.

NB: CJEU = the Court of Justice of the European Union. The CJEU “interprets EU law to make sure it is applied in the same way in all EU countries, and settles legal disputes between national governments and EU institutions. It can also, in certain circumstances, be used by individuals, companies or organisations to take action against an EU institution, if they feel it has somehow infringed their rights.” (, original emphasis).

EFTA court = the Court of Justice of the European Free Trade Association. This has jurisdiction over the three states (Iceland, Liechtenstein, and Norway) that are signatories to the European Free Trade Agreement and parties to the European Economic Area Agreement, which guarantees the free movement of people, services and capital. These three states are not members of the European Union.
