Known in the past as AAMS , (the former Autonomous Administration of State Monopolies ), it is a body – among other things – responsible for managing public gaming.
ADM and legal gaming
ADM ‘s control activity takes place in numerous areas: for example, it deals with ascertaining the payment of excise duties within the customs system, controls the production and sale of tobaccos (by regulating taxes), but also manages the sector of Italian public gaming , with a series of actions aimed at combating illegal gaming and equitable taxation of legal gaming 22winph
A bookmaker or an online platform that wants to be part of the legal gaming circuit must meet numerous requirements required by ADM , which must be met upon obtaining the concession and in subsequent periodic checks , in order to exercise online gambling.
Why prefer ADM-authorized platforms?
There are several reasons that should direct a user to play or bet only on safe online casinos , and therefore holders of ADM concession.
First of all, the fact that the sites with ADM authorization comply with the tax laws in force. In this way, they guarantee a legal and safe gaming experience , both online and in centers open on the Italian territory (think for example of betting centers or slot rooms).
Conversely, playing on a non-ADM site is illegal . A site that is not autoriented ADM is not subject to tax regulations and its attendance can generate heavy fines for the users who benefit from it. Specifically, the article of the law aimed at users of non-ADM sites is quite clear:
“Anyone who participates in competitions, games, bets managed in the manner referred to in paragraph 1, except in cases of participation in one of the offenses provided for by the same , is punished with imprisonment for up to three months or with a fine from € 51 to € 516 ”.
