Dublin illegal gambling goes through amusement establishments

French Prime Minister Jean Castex (pictured) has announced that the reopening of casinos, among other businesses, has been postponed until at least the end of January.

The French PM announced that “all activities, facilities and premises closed will remain so until the end of the month. Museums, movie theaters, show venues, gyms and leisure centers are not to see measures eased off in the coming weeks. During this period of closure and limited work, the government will keep on financially support all sectors and players directly affected by our measures.”

After hoping they would be able to reopen on December 15, then on January 7, casinos have to wait until the end of January to know if they will be allowed to reopen in early February 2021.

To avoid a third wave that France feels is coming, the government wishes to minimize flows and gatherings of people. Jean Castex and his ministers have decided to postpone the reopening of public facilities to the first week of January 2021.

 

But since conditions are still not met as of the beginning of the year, the French PM announced that "all activities, facilities and premises closed will remain so until the end of the month. Museums, movie theaters, show venues, gyms and leisure centers are not to see measures eased off in the coming weeks".

 

During this period of closure and limited work, the government will keep on financially support all sectors and players directly affected by our measures.

Dublin illegal gambling goes through amusement establishments

During last week the majority of Bratislava’s councilors have voted to ban gambling in response to an anti-gambling petition. The ban will come into effect on 1 January 2021. According to The Slovak Spectator, of the council’s 40 members 39 voted in favor of the ban whilst one abstained.

The new law does not mean that Bratislava’s casinos and gambling venues will close immediately – instead once businesses’ gaming licenses expire between 2023 and 2024, they will not be renewed.

This is the second time a gambling ban has been introduced in Slovakia, with the first attempt lasting for less than two years from 1 May 2017 to 28 December 2018.

Swedish government with more regulations  

Dublin illegal gambling goes through amusement establishments

The Swedish Gambling Market Commission (Spelmarknadsutredningen) has delivered a report on the country’s iGambling regulations. The report has recommended several stricter controls on the market including a proposal that the national regulator Spelinspektionen should implement a risk classification for gambling products.

 

The games classified as the highest risk should be banned from advertising between 6 am and 9 pm. It also proposes that Sweden should make permanent the SEK 5,000 deposit limit that has been temporarily imposed for online casino games during the Covid-19 pandemic.

 

Other proposals include the introduction of a law laying out reporting requirements for operators and a relaxation of bonus restrictions for gambling operators that generate funds for charity, such as lotteries, to enable them to better compete against private operators. It also suggests greater controls on unlicensed gambling, which is now subject to a separate enquiry.

 

The study concluded that the Gambling Act was not the correct tool to include controls on loot boxes in video games, which it said should be studied at the European Union level.

 

“This has been a complex assignment that has touched on a large number of different issues linked to gambling regulation, which in some cases have required difficult trade-offs. I believe that the proposals we come up with today can both contribute to strengthening consumer protection and make regulation more appropriate,” Sörenson said.

Netherlands forcing regulations in Curacao 

Dublin illegal gambling goes through amusement establishments

Curaçao, is preferred by online gambling companies to avoid the gaze of industry watchdogs, but it may finally implement a proper regulatory system. Part of the Dutch Caribbean, the island nation has received financial support from the Netherlands to help get it through the COVID-19 pandemic.

But now that support is coming with conditions, namely that Curaçao must get its online gambling licensing regime under control.

Netherlands told Curaçao that it needed to make structural reforms to become more “financially, economically and administratively resilient” lest it not receive the third tranche of relief funds.

In October, Curaçao agreed to implement measures to crack down on financial crimes, including passing laws to authorize an independent regulator for its online gaming industry. Everything must be in place by March 1, 2021.

Curaçao technically has an online gambling licensing structure, but there is little to no actual enforcement of any rules. There are five companies, all telecommunications firms, that are called “master licensees.” They often try to make themselves looks like official regulators, but they still just licensees.

If Curaçao licensees do not go through the proper steps to follow regulations in other jurisdictions, they will be limited to mainly accepting customers from Curaçao itself, which only has about 160,000 residents.

The collection of gambling taxes, corporate taxes, and licensing fees. The master licensees pay ANG240,000 ($133,770) per year for their licenses, but the sub-licensees pay their fees to their master licensees. On top of that, many sub-licensees operate out of other countries and thus don’t pay taxes in Curaçao. The government is cut out of the loop for most income it should be generating.

Curaçao wants to charge ANG7,500 ($4,180) for a sub-license and a 2% tax on corporate profits. It is estimated that if the independent regulator is effective in its efforts, ANG100m ($55.7m) could be injected into the federal government’s coffers each year.
