The country’s gambling laws are being rolled out by the country’s central bank and the State to make it more difficult for people to get online gambling.
The move follows recent legal developments that saw the introduction of the new rules.
Under the new laws, a person must obtain a gambling licence from the Government before they can play online, and they must have a gaming licence with the same name as the one they used to play online.
Gambling licenses can be purchased from a licensed gaming company, and a licence fee can be paid to the licensed company, which will then make the licence available to anyone who wants to get their hands on a gaming device.
The new rules will apply to people who have bought a licence, and the company which holds the licence can no longer cancel the licence, which means they will be able to sell the licence to anyone.
The rules have been drawn up following a court challenge in December by the Government to stop a number of online gambling sites, including Bet365, betting on rugby and football.
This is in response to a decision in July that found the operators of online betting sites to be unlawful, and that they should be prohibited from operating in the country.
Online gambling sites have been operating in Ireland for more than five years, but have yet to be given the same level of protection as the gambling businesses in the rest of the UK.
Online betting was legalized in the UK in 2015.
However, the UK Government is still looking to introduce the new legislation to Ireland.
The changes will come into effect from January 1, 2019, and will be phased in over the next four years.
The first batch of regulations will take effect in July 2020, followed by further changes in 2021.
In order to be legally able to gamble online, you need to have a licence to do so.
