European Commission criticises German State Treaty

first_img Email Address Regions: Europe Central and Eastern Europe Germany Topics: Casino & games Legal & compliance Sports betting Casino & games 27th August 2019 | By contenteditor AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter European Commission criticises German State Treaty The European Commission has once again criticised Germany’s proposed regulatory framework for gambling, warning that the short term legislation offered little incentive for operators to secure licences. The European Commission has once again criticised the latest incarnation of Germany’s State Treaty on Gambling, warning that the short term legislation offered little incentive for operators to secure licences.After the proposed legislation was submitted to the Commission in May this year, general director Lowri Evans has submitted a response which casts doubt on the effectiveness of the planned framework in a ‘blue letter’, seen by iGamingBusiness.com.A ‘blue letter’ is a formal notice that acts as a precursor to the launch of infringement proceedings against a member state, in which the Commission can ask for further clarification on elements of proposed legislation.Evans in particular criticised the short-term nature of the third amended State Treaty on Gambling. He questioned the logic of implementing the Treaty for such a short period, from 1 January 2020 – provided all 16 federal states ratify the legislation by 31 December 2019 – to 30 June, 2021.The fact that the legislation is a placeholder to be enforced while lawmakers develop a new model that will replace both the Treaty and Schleswig-Holstein’s liberal regulations has already prompted some operators to suggest it may not be properly enforced.In order to secure a licence, operators will be required to shut down any online casino offerings and offer sports betting without in-play wagering. Players will be restricted to spending €1,000 per month, with a 5% turnover tax levied on licensees. These restrictions and fees are expected to slash operators’ revenue should they be fully enforced.With these controls to be implemented, albeit for a short period, Evans noted that this could make the market particularly unattractive for operators. With the processing of licence applications to begin from 2 January, the first working day of 2020, licences could be valid for less than 18 months.While he acknowledged that the Treaty does contain provisions for licences to be extend by three years, to 30 June 2024, Evans added that he did not feel this would make securing a licence any more attractive for operators.Evans also cast doubt on whether goals of the Treaty, such as increasing player protection and driving unlicensed operators from the market, could be achieved in an 18-month period. He also queried when the effectiveness of the Treaty would be assessed, something pledged when it was first introduced in 2012.“The Commission emphasises the need for a continuous evaluation of the implementation and application of the State Treaty, in particular (but not limited to) sports betting,” Evans continued. “The German authorities have already committed in 2012 […] to an evaluation of the appropriateness and effectiveness of the provisions relating to sports betting.“Unfortunately, in view of the previous non-award of sports betting licenses, no such evaluation has yet been carried out,” he said. “Therefore, the German authorities are invited to [explain] how and when an evaluation of the appropriateness and effectiveness of the sports betting provisions will take place.”The EC’s response to the State Treaty is just the latest in a long line of instances in which it has criticised German gambling legislation. The 2012 incarnation of the Treaty was viewed as introducing unjustifiable restrictions on companies’ freedom to provide services in the European Union as result of a 20-licence limit.After the original plans were derailed by legal challenges from operators, the second amended Treaty, without the licence cap, also came in for criticism, with the EC arguing that it continued to prohibit online casino and poker – something it doubted could be enforced. However, that edition also failed to come into effect, after not all of Germany’s 16 member states ratified the Treaty, despite it being signed by each state’s Minister-President.While the third amended State Treaty includes the prohibitions contained in the previous two drafts, it will operate in tandem with Schleswig-Holstein’s regulatory model. This enforces no restrictions on product, and sets a 20% gross revenue tax for licensees. The legislation was renewed until 2021 in May this year, which many have seen as a compromise that suggests lawmakers will support more liberal federal regulations from 2021.

Spelinspektionen proposes ban on lower league betting

first_img Spelinspektionen has launched a consultation on updated anti-match fixing safeguards, with the Swedish gambling regulator now proposing a limiting betting to the top four divisions of football. Topics: Legal & compliance Sports betting Spelinspektionen proposes ban on lower league betting 24th April 2020 | By contenteditor Tags: Mobile Online Gambling Legal & compliance Spelinspektionen has launched a consultation on updated anti-match fixing safeguards, with the Swedish gambling regulator now proposing a limiting betting to the top four divisions of football.This would mean operators could only offer bets on the top level Allsvenskan, second-tier Superettan, Division 1 Norra and Södra, and six regional Division 2 leagues.Furthermore, betting on Swedish Cup would be limited to matches featuring teams from the top four tiers. Markets for matches involving foreign clubs would only be permitted when each participating team is from the top four tiers of each country’s footballing pyramid.Operators would only be able to take bets on international matches from under-21 level upwards.Finally, betting on training matches or friendlies would be prohibited entirely. Similar measures could be introduced for other sports, Spelinspektionen added.The proposal comes amid mounting criticism of operators that offer odds on lower level and non-competitive matches in Sweden and overseas. Earlier this month Svenska Spel chief executive Patrik Hofbauer and chairman Erik Strand condemned operators that offered betting on lower-league training matches, and called for a total ban on betting on amateur sports.The restrictions on betting markets would be introduced alongside the measures put forward by the regulator in January this year. This proposal aimed to ban betting on rule violations, – such as yellow cards in football – betting on teams or athletes losing, and betting on individual performances on athletes aged 18 or under.Operator association Branschföreningen för Onlinespel (BOS) was quick to condemn the proposal as “decriminalising match fixing”, though Svenska Spel argued it failed to do enough to prevent match-fixing.International Betting Integrity Association (IBIA), meanwhile, issued a detailed response explaining that there was little evidence the measures would have a discernible impact on protecting sporting integrity. Instead, it warned, the new restrictions could reduce regulated sports betting revenue – while just 8.9% of gamblers bet on rule violations, these players accounted for around 40% of revenue, it said.The consultation, which runs until 6 May, invites BOS, fellow trade body Spelbranschens riksorganisation (Sper), the Swedish Sports Confederation (Riksidrottsförbundet) and Swedish football’s governing body Svenska Fotbollförbundet (SVFF) to comment on the updated proposal.It comes after Sweden’s Minister for Health and Social Affairs Ardalan Shekarabi announced a series of restrictions for online casino. From 1 June until the end of 2020, players will only be permitted to deposit SEK5,000 (£401/€459/$495) each week, while bonuses for newly registered players will be limited to SEK100.BOS immediately criticised the controls as liable to increase migration from regulated to unregulated sites, while the European Gaming and Betting Association echoed this assessment in its response.

Tabcorp to sell AUD$97.8m stake in Jumbo Interactive

Bingo 22nd September 2020 | By Aaron Noy AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Tabcorp has agreed to sell its 11/6% stake in online lottery business Jumbo Interactive for AUS$97.8m (£55.1m/€60.0m/$70.1m). The Australian operator will sell  7,234,178 shares in Jumbo at a price of $13.52 per share, with the deal expected to close on 24 September. Stockbroker UBS will seek a buyer for the stake. “Following the recent extension of our long-standing commercial distribution relationship with Jumbo for a ten year term to August 2030, there is no longer a strategic rationale for Tabcorp’s shareholding in Jumbo,” Attenborough said. “We look forward to her contribution and complementing the existing skills and experience on the Tabcorp board.” Tabcorp managing director and chief executive David Attenborough explained there was no longer a need for his business to hold a stake in Jumbo after it formalised a long-term extension of its reseller agreement until August 2030. Tabcorp expects the deal to be worth a profit of $69m after tax. These funds will be used to pay down existing drawn bank debt facilities.

Payment provider options in esports betting

first_img18th March 2021 | By contenteditor Email Address AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter The esports betting industry has exploded in recent years. The novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic of 2020 has lifted the industry to new heights, but oddsmakers haven’t lost any incentive to improve their services. In fact, increased popularity pushes bettors’ standards higher. There’s plenty of competition between sportsbooks, and payment options are one area to gain an advantage over a competing esports betting site. Options for esports betting are largely the same as for traditional sports. A cutting-edge payment menu would include debit cards, online wallets, bank transfers and cryptocurrency. Each type of service is aimed at different kinds of users. While there are other methods of transferring money between customers and betting companies, those four make up the vast majority of payment providers in esports betting. Bank transfers are a favourite for very experienced bettors, thanks to their reputation as the most secure deposit option. While that may be true, that security comes at the expense of speed. Direct deposits can take days to send and days to arrive, and some sites can only promise receipt within two weeks. Bank transfers’ low opportunity cost and user loyalty make it an option worth offering, but very few esports bettors, if any, use them. By Kenneth Williams Online wallets are a common sight on betting sites but their sheer variety can make supporting them difficult. The likes of Skrill, Neteller, Trustly and ecoPayz all require individual attention to implement into your payment gateway. Fees and timing also vary wildly from service to service. If you can only support a single online wallet, stick with PayPal. If you want to tailor your payment providers towards esports bettors, crypto is a must. Bitcoin and Ethereum are relatively easy to handle and transfer, but new crypto variations are continually gaining traction in the market. Crypto off-shoots such as stablecoins are only the beginning. Offering crypto payments now will make it easier to adapt as the market opens up – and tech-savvy esports bettors will appreciate your efforts almost as much as they enjoy the quickness and cheapness of crypto. Esports Tailoring your offer Topics: Esports Tech & innovation esports betting Payments The four main options Esports bettors are particularly keen on diverse payment options. Esports tournaments can feature multiple rounds of competition on the same day and new matchups are constantly determined in multi-day events such as League of Legends Worlds or Dota’s The International. These championships are also the most popular betting attractions for their respective titles. Esports bettors benefit the most from fast deposit and withdrawal times, and their love of technology coincides with one of the fast-growing payment options. They will check your payment times before making an account. Cryptocurrency is another resource-intensive payment option that is crucial for attracting esports bettors. Crypto transfer speeds are the quickest among the four main choices by far. Esports bettors often need to adjust their account on the fly, and the low fees further incentivise them to pick crypto. The most popular digital currencies are Bitcoin and Ethereum but having infrastructure for one cryptocurrency makes it much easier to begin accepting others. Payment provider options in esports betting Esports bettors largely fall into the same deposit habits as traditional sports fans. Credit cards and online wallets are still the most popular options and bank transfers are used only by a select few. In addition, video game bettors are eager to adopt cryptocurrency for its novelty and convenience. Video game betting and cryptocurrency are intertwined, so a plan to integrate one should probably also include the other. Debit cards and online wallets are a given but if you want to tailor your payment providers towards esports bettors, then crypto is a must. Tags: Payments Esports Cryptocurrency Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Debit cards are the most common method used to deposit money into a betting site for a good reason: they’re ubiquitous and charge minimal fees – but they don’t particularly excel in any certain area. Transfer times vary between immediate and three days, with most taking a few hours. A same-day debit card deposit is a very desirable option.last_img read more
