Ineffectiveness and politicization of Coljuegos is leading to bankruptcy of casino operators in Colombia.

There is a lot of concern among gambling and chance entrepreneurs, for example, casinos, about what they have called “the ineffectiveness of Coljuegos,” as they point out that there are nearly 50 paralyzed contracts, and this means that companies cannot operate or make renovations.

 

This has even led to micro-entrepreneurs having to close their businesses, which means harm to them and lay off employees. The serious thing about this is that the resources of this sector are for health, that is, perhaps the most affected by this situation is the health system.

 

 

Coljuegos responded that since Marco Emilio Hincapié (current president) arrived to direct the entity they have "implemented processes to decongest administrative procedures because we found actions that were filed since March and that had not been decided on in substance", specifically, they point out that they have resolved 627 procedures.

 

But Coljuegos acknowledges that it has made requests or requirements for documentary adjustments and support certificates, procedures that, business owners say, many of them are unnecessary reprocesses.

 

Furthermore, they claim that in this process they have had requirements from the ITRC and the Comptroller's Office and that they were also victims of the information hacking attack.

59% of the soccer clubs that play Conmebol tournaments are sponsored by sports betting houses, dangerous. 

Ineffectiveness and politicization of Coljuegos is leading to bankruptcy of casino operators in Colombia.

 

Sports betting houses have burst into the football industry. And this is evident, with increasing frequency, in the shirts of different teams on the continent, mainly in countries like Argentina, Brazil and Ecuador. These companies or brands have been gaining space over the years.

 

 

This season, 38 of the 64 clubs that participate in the group stages of the Conmebol tournaments (Libertadores and Sudamericana) are sponsored by sports betting houses, which means 59% of the teams. Brazil leads that list with 13.

 

 

The first place in the region goes to Corinthians (which is playing the Copa Sudamericana), which maintains a contract of USD 23 million per year with Vai de Bet, one of the largest sports betting houses in Brazil.

 

 

Sponsorships of betting houses in Libertadores clubs

 

*For this calculation, the 32 teams that play in the Libertadores group stage are considered.

 

 

The other three federations that receive sponsorship from betting houses are: Peru (Te Apuesta), Colombia (BetPlay) and Ecuador (Ecuabet). While Uruguay, Chile, Bolivia, Venezuela and Paraguay do not have betting house sponsorships.

 

Chile, Uruguay, and Bolivia reject sports betting.

 

These three countries have 16 clubs in the Conmebol tournaments in 2024. In the case of Chile, the Government of Gabriel Boric, through the Ministry of Justice, ordered the teams to break their contracts with betting houses, something that put football in that country in check.

 

This followed a ruling by the Third Chamber of the Supreme Court, which declared online betting illegal for not complying with local regulations. For this reason, the National Professional Football Association (ANFP) announced, in October 2023, the end of its contract with Betsson, the betting house that sponsored the First Division championship.

 

 

However, other sports betting houses such as CoolBet continued to operate, considering that such a ban is not contemplated in the law. This brand maintains a millionaire contract of USD 6 million for two seasons with Colo-Colo.

 

Other brands that fought the regulations and remain in Chilean soccer are: RojaBet, sponsor of Cobresal, Palestino and Coquimbo Unidos and novibet, with Huachipato.

 






1Win sees his entry into Colombia frustrated for now, due to pressure from Coljuegos. 

Ineffectiveness and politicization of Coljuegos is leading to bankruptcy of casino operators in Colombia.

Although representatives of the restaurant located in Medellín confirmed that the betting house called 1win had canceled the event that same morning, Coljuegos' intervention was crucial to guarantee compliance with the law and prevent future attempts at illegal operations in the country.

 

 

 

The purpose of the event was to educate attendees about affiliate marketing strategies, traffic arbitrage and other forms of monetization in order to boost the participation of the betting public on the platform.

 

 

Bookmaker 1win is a gaming platform for bettors from the Russian Federation, Commonwealth of Independent States countries and near abroad countries.

 

However, Coljuegos has determined that the 1win brand does not have the required authorization to operate in Colombia, which makes any promotional activity in Colombian territory illegal. Furthermore, 1Win is not part of the web portals authorized to operate games of luck and chance over the Internet.

 

In this case, the entity highlighted that it will continue to work tirelessly to protect consumers and guarantee that all activities related to gambling are carried out in accordance with current regulations. It is worth remembering that, “To date, 15,120 blocking orders have been issued to unauthorized online gambling portals,” The national government will put the magnifying glass on health resources coming from taxes on games of luck and chance






Brazilian players data can be store outside but … 

Ineffectiveness and politicization of Coljuegos is leading to bankruptcy of casino operators in Colombia.

The Secretariat of Prizes and Betting (SPA) - an entity of the Brazilian Ministry of Finance - recently issued Ordinance SPA/MF 722/2024, which details the technical and security requirements that sports betting and online gaming operators must meet. The technical requirements focus on the technological infrastructure of the betting systems. Specifically, all authorized operators must store the betting system and the corresponding data in data centers located in Brazil.

In exceptional circumstances, systems and data may be located outside Brazil, but must meet certain criteria. Operators must present to the SPA an explanation of why their systems are kept outside Brazil. The data center must also be ISO 27001 certified.

 

 

These conditions include that the countries have an International Legal Cooperation Agreement with Brazil in civil and criminal matters. Data owners abroad must authorize data transfers in advance. To facilitate effective supervision, operators must provide the SPA with data on bets, players, customer portfolios, legal destinations, and other operational information. This manual will soon be available on the website of the Secretariat, which may request additional information from the operator at any time.

 

On the other hand, operators must obtain certification of their platforms and systems from entities recognized by the Ministry of Finance. They must meet strict technology and security standards to protect consumers against potential fraud or unauthorized access.

 

 

Ordinance 722 SPA/MF 722 was published in an extra edition of the Official Gazette of the and can be consulted at the http://www.in.gov.br/web/dou/-/portaria-spa/mf-n-722-de-2-de-maio-de-2024-557715851
