AAMS, Autonomous Administration of State Monopolies (Amministrazione Autonoma dei Monopoli di Stato)
What is AAMS?
AAMS, or during the autonomous administration of state monopolies is one of the most important Italian regulatory authority on the Apennine Peninsula. The Authority was established in 1999 and deals with issues related to gambling, gambling, the production and sale of tobacco, and public relations. Among the main rights of AAMS is the right to distribute licenses to operators who want to become part of the gambling industry. AAMS also has the right to impose fines when it finds various violations.
What are the objectives of the authority?
The autonomous administration of state monopolies in Italy operates on the basis of several key objectives. They are:
- Protection of the financial interests of the Italian state.
- Fight against tax evasion and entities operating illegally.
- Contributing to Italy's economic growth.
- Protection of Italian citizens, which includes: control of products and services, verification of licenses, monitoring of operators, etc.
As mentioned above, one of the biggest responsibilities of AAMS is the control of gambling activity in the country. This is done through a comprehensive strategy that includes many points. Among which: development of regulations for gambling, protection of players under the minimum age to play, verification of payments of gaming companies to players, periodic control over the implementation of license conditions for operators, etc.
Although a fairly serious body, there are people who are skeptical about the effectiveness of AAMS. According to them, one of the reasons is the distribution of the authority in many areas of activity, thus not being able to successfully cover all the problems and issues that may arise.
However, the autonomous administration of state monopolies is at the service of every Italian citizen in need. You can get the necessary information on their official website, https://www.adm.gov.it/portale/. But AAMS also has its physical points in all major Italian cities.
