Last Friday (on 25 November 2016), DLA Piper Belgium attended a colloquium of BAGO, the Belgian Association of Gaming Operators. BAGO is a new sector initiative composed of various gaming operators licensed under Belgium’s regulatory framework.

During the event, attended by several of the sector’s stakeholders, BAGO called upon the Belgian regulator as well as the legislator to create a legal and operational framework which allows for a diverse gaming offering, whilst respecting both customer protection considerations and economic viability of the sector which will become increasingly digitized.

BAGO intends to offer better insight in the Belgian gaming market by supporting studies and market research and equally drives self-regulation by proposing a gaming advertising code.
