Netherlands Self-exclusion system a total failure 

Dublin illegal gambling goes through amusement establishments

De Kansspelautoriteit (KSA), the Netherlands’ gambling regulator, is investigating possible breaches of the Dutch self-exclusion system. It’s received complaints from players that land-based gambling halls allowed them to play slots despite being registered on the self exclusion system, Centraal Register Uitsluiting Kansspelen (Cruks).

 

Some of those who complained said they were able to access slot halls with no issues raised, while others had their Cruks registration noted but ignored.

 

According to the Netherlands’ gambling regulations, all licensees in the regulated market, both online and land-based, must check whether a player is registered on Cruks before allowing them to play.

 

The system was launched last October on the opening of the new regulated online gambling market. The launch of the new market was held up by a day due to a technical error with the system.

 

Players can register on Cruks themselves, but they can also be referred by friends, family or operators themselves if they have concerns that the person may be suffering gambling harm. The KSA said it may impose sanctions if it identifies any breaches of the rules.

 

In December, the KSA asked licensed gambling operators to run checks on their customer bases to make sure that no players were registered with Cruks after it detected an error that allowed some players that had signed up to access online gambling.

The Swedish government going after unlicensed operators 

Dublin illegal gambling goes through amusement establishments

The Swedish government has decided not to go ahead with proposals that would have seen the national gambling regulator clampdown on unlicensed gambling operators.

 

Spelinspektionen currently takes action against gambling operators that actively target Swedish players, but the proposed change would have led to the regulator going after any operator that failed to actively block Swedish players.

 

The proposal was made in a draft law on match-fixing and unlicensed gambling which took on recommendations from a report by Gunnar Larsson, the director-general of the Ministry of Finance and Chamber of Commerce.

 

Spelinspektionen has said that the change would help eliminate the current need for an interpretation of what targeting Swedish players entails. However, the state treasury has said that the proposed change was “not reasonable” because it would oblige companies that have no business in Sweden to adopt measures to block Swedish customers.

 

On top of that, the Administrative Court in Linköping said it was unclear whether the Swedish government actually had the power to adopt such a measure and the Public Prosecutor’s Office said it would be “very difficult to investigate and prosecute”.

 

The government concluded that the change would risk putting the focus “on whether players are resident or permanently resident in Sweden, instead of on whether the games are adapted for the Swedish market”.

 

It added that “there are still strong reasons to allow the Gambling Act’s current scope of application to be developed through practice before it may be relevant to consider an extension”.

 

As for the topic of match-fixing, the government proposes to allow gambling licensees and sports bodies to process personal data to check if sportspeople are not insider betting. It also proposes a clearer definition of “match-fixing” was necessary. The changes would come into effect from July 1 next year.

Slovakia with POC in a new gambling advertising law 

Dublin illegal gambling goes through amusement establishments

The Office of Gambling Regulation of Slovakia has announced the publication of a “Concept of Responsible Advertising” document with which it intends to improve gambling advertising standards.

 

The document will introduce new standards for gambling ads in all media.

 

The document is intended as a “starting point” that operators and media bodies can use to introduce new self-regulatory and control mechanisms to ensure a safe gambling market for consumers and prevent crime and gambling harm.

 

The regulator will require feedback and practical comments from industry association representatives, gambling operators and third parties.

 

Gambling office director general David LenÄéš said: “It is socially desirable for Slovak gambling advertising to have clear standards and responsible content. That is why we have come up with the Concept of Responsible Advertising.

 

This initiative of our office consists in opening a professional partnership discussion. It is mainly about the intensity, focus and content of advertising.”

 

Last year, Slovakia banned Twitch after a user streamed himself playing poker online. The US streaming platform is used by professional gamers, allowing fans to watch them play in real time while interacting and giving them their opinions and advice.

 

However, Slovakian authorities received complaints from audiences and sponsors due to illegal content being streamed to viewers of all ages, including streams of users playing virtual slots and even offering discount codes to fans.

Spain decision on gambling ads, Entities appealing 

Dublin illegal gambling goes through amusement establishments

Jdigital, the Spanish online gambling trade association, has reported that its appeal against the country’s royal decree on gambling ads is to move forward. The Supreme Court has decided that the appeal should get a constitutional review.

 

In November, Spain’s Ministry of Consumer Affairs introduced restrictions limiting gambling advertising to between the hours of 1am and 5am. The igambling association Jdigital launched an appeal against the measure together with Spanish media body the Asociación de Medios de Información (AMI).

 

They claim that the royal decree should have received constitutional approval before it could be imposed.

 

Jdigital and AMI claim that such approval would not be forthcoming since the royal decree breaches article 53 of the Spanish Constitution, which guarantees fundamental rights and freedoms.

 

The two bodies also claim that the ban on gambling ads was a “disproportionate” and “ineffective” solution.

 

Spain’s gambling ad restrictions also prohibit gambling sponsorship in all sports, except for hookups with state-owned lottery operators.

The Greek government has confirmed a relaxation of stake limits for online casino gambling and poker. It published the change in the Hellas government gazette, raising the maximum wager for online slots and table games from €2 to €20.

 

The change applies with immediate effect and applies to online poker and associated RNG games. The government has also doubled the limit for jackpots from €70,000 to €140,000.

 

The government made the decision after a review of the first year of regulated online gambling undertaken by the Greek Ministry of Finance. Hellenic Gambling Commission (HGC) president Dimitris Ntzanatos welcomed the move saying that the regulator supported the decision in its audit of the market in its first year.

 

As for game design, the Hellenic Gambling Commission (HGC) said that gambling operators have also been permitted to reduce spin times from three to two seconds. It has also extended the window for operators to connect to its compliance central monitoring system to December 2022. Some 15 operators have new Greek online gambling licences.
