European Union – Freedom of movement. Article 56 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union should be interpreted as meaning that it did not, in principle, preclude a dual system of organisation of the market for games of chance under which certain types of those games fell within the state monopoly system, while others fell within the system of concessions and licences for the organisation of games of chance, if the referring court established that the rules restricting the freedom to provide services in fact pursued in a consistent and systematic manner the objectives relied on by the member state concerned. The Court of Justice of the European Union so held, among other things, in proceedings concerning the Hungarian tax authority's decision to impose a fine on Sporting Odds Ltd, a British company, for having organised online games of chance without having either a concession or a licence required for that purpose.
