Although online poker tournaments were allowed the online poker cash games were not permitted. In addition the online casino gambling remained illicit and was also a reason of resentment among the gaming enthusiasts of Italy.

The moment at the present is one to be cheered by all the gaming enthusiasts as the government has decided to modify the restrictions in regards to online gaming and casinos. Online poker games will probably be launching in March whereas the online casino gambling is likely to go live in latter period of the summer. At the moment Italy is considered to be the biggest online gaming market in Europe.

In accordance with the information provided by Trust Partners, which happens to be a leading consultancy firm, the launching of casinos and online poker is anticipated to double the turnover of online gambling by the year 2012.
