New changes on bio security protocols in Colombia for casinos and commercial establishments
Publicado: 2021-03-04

After almost a year in which Resolution 666 of 2020 generally governed all biosecurity protocols against Covid-19 in Colombia, the Ministry of Health and Social Protection issued a new administrative act with the guidelines in force for pandemic control.

 

In this regard, the Minister of Health and Social Protection, Fernando Ruiz Gómez, stated that “as scientific evidence has advanced in the management of the COVID-19, there has been a need for changes to the protocols, for this reason resolution 223 of 2021 was issued”.

 

The resolution was issued on 25 February, and it has new parameters for action to maintain biosecurity.

 

The ones that will keep up are the use of masks, social distance, hand washing and the importance of ventilated environments are emphasized, whenever possible, doors and windows should be kept open for natural air exchange.

 

Like the provision of alcohol and disinfectant gel for use in the hands and surfaces that are highly exposed to contact by different people.

 

However, changes occur in the elimination of compulsory “temperature measure and listing those entering business establishments” the Minister of Health assured. Before casinos and commercial establishments had to not only take notes and contact details of who entered to the establishment but also had to ensure that none entered with higher temperatures than 36,7.

 

The use of disinfectant carpets and wheels or shoes for reducing the transmission of the virus is not recommended anymore for cleaning and disinfection.

 

In this way, new changes are expected to be made to the mandatory protocols for casinos, which have one of the stricter protocols in all industries. This will allow these establishments to be respected in the face of the responsibilities that both economics and biosecurity should have taken.

São Paulo opens bidding for lottery concessions. 

New changes on bio security protocols in Colombia for casinos and commercial establishments

The São Paulo government took a significant step two days ago Tuesday (11) about lottery games. An international tender was announced for the concession of lottery services.

 

Thus, the Official State Gazette has already published the decree, detailing all the rules for the dispute between interested parties. Many already consider the procedure as a new chapter in the history of betting in the state.

 

There will be 5 types of bets for the state of São Paulo

Thus, the bidding encompasses five types of bets, each with its own characteristics and attractions. In Timemania, for example, it will allow bettors to choose their favorite teams. In this type of bet, sports predictions involving the prediction of game scores are taken into account, so the bettor’s sports knowledge will make all the difference.

 

But the numerical prediction type lottery, similar to those that already exist and are organized by Caixa Econômica Federal, are completely random, giving much more excitement to the games.

 

Another modality is instant lotteries, also known as scratch cards, where the prizes are immediate.

But this is not São Paulo’s first attempt to privatize these services. In 2022, during the administration of João Doria and Rodrigo Garcia (PSDB), they wrote a similar decree.

 

 

Palácio dos Bandeirantes estimated a concession for 20 years at R$906 million. However, the dispute was suspended by the State Audit Court (TCE). The main reason was the existence of restrictive clauses and the lack of clarity in the economic-financial feasibility study.






Bariloche-Argentina could see its gaming market limited. 

New changes on bio security protocols in Colombia for casinos and commercial establishments

One of the most touristic cities in Argentina, Bariloche, could see its gaming market limited, since the Municipal Council will soon be able to debate a recently presented project to prohibit casinos and in-person gaming rooms.

 

The draft ordinance was presented days ago by councilors Leandro Costa Brutten and Julieta Wallace, who hope that the proposal will open debates on problems with gambling, the participation of minors in entertainment offers, among other axes.

 

 

Casinos are prohibited throughout the fabric of the city of Bariloche,” reads the first article of the project, which “aims to reconfigure the facilities for the gaming halls category, which to date have no geographical restrictions,” as reported in Rionegro.

 

 

Given the current panorama, the councilors addressed the challenges that the new regulation would face, since the Argentine company Casino Club has a license from the provincial regulator, the Río Negro Lottery, to operate casinos until 2040.

 

Under this agreement, the government demands from the company a fee set by the province of a payment of 4.2 million dollars and destined for the construction of the new terminal in this city. The proposal is in line with several regulatory projects presented in the Argentine provinces and at the national level, to stop the exponential growth that the gaming industry is seeing in the country.

 






Coljuegos, defend KENO for Chance operators in Colombia. 

New changes on bio security protocols in Colombia for casinos and commercial establishments

Coljuegos, the regulatory entity for games of chance in Colombia, reported that the traditional Chinese game called Keno does not have current regulations in the country and, therefore, cannot be marketed by any operator in Colombian territory.

 

According to the entity's board of directors, Keno is not included in the category of Internet games with immediate prizes, which is why the exploitation of any similar type of game is not authorized, neither virtually nor locally.

 

We have already presented the Keno regulations to the board of directors. Currently, this game is constituted as an illegal practice, since said board determined through Agreement 06 of 2023 that it is not a type of immediate prize and, until it is regulated and awarded, it has no legal basis to operate,"

 

Coljuegos also warned that those who market this game could be subject to administrative sanctions contemplated in Law 643 of 2001. In addition, all elements used for the operation of the game may be seized by the authorities. It is worth mentioning that, recently, the Superior Court of Bogotá issued a second instance decision that ratifies the ban on Keno in the national territory because there is no regulation or surveillance to protect bettors.

 






Once again, Colombian casino operators promote a sit-in in Coljuegos.

On June 6, 2024, groups of operators are calling again for a sit-in in front of the Coljuegos offices "since it has systematically and harmfully failed to comply with the commitments acquired months ago by the legal department of this entity", according to the statement.

The organizing committee is the same one that on October 2, 2023 brought together more than 200 operators from all over the country who, tired of not being heard, protested and who were assisted by the then director of the legal area who promised to evacuate the procedures blocked before on October 26 of the same year, without this commitment being honored.
