The Greek government has brought in a new law that could make the playing of mobile phone games illegal. The new law is intended to clamp down on illegal online gambling, but it also includes a ban on all games with electric, electromechanical and electronic components.
The ban, which was decided in February, includes innocuous video games, after the Greek government claimed that it could not distinguish them from illegal gambling machines. Offenders face fines of between E5,000-75,000 and imprisonment of 1-12 months.
The Greek gaming communities are backing a test case in an effort to overthrow the law, which is due in court next week.
