President of Coljuegos Marco Emilio will open the door to money laundering in the gaming industry?

Coljuegos and the gambling industry have been immersed in a frontal fight against all forms of illicit activities and it has cost too much to have a reputation for transparency and good practices among all actors, as always. I have expressed it.


In the crusade that Coljuegos is carrying out against illegal betting and Chance, the interference and direct management of criminal gangs and armed groups that affect the business is evident in each operation, which was in the news this past weekend when the same Coljuegos press room , gave a good account of an operation carried out at the site where a brothel called the swimming pool operated and which had been converted into an online betting site and operated some slot machines, managed by one of the sector's gangs of Venezuelan origin.


In that order of ideas, the so-called infamous draft that Coljuegos published on December 7, 2023 aims to hand over the operation of all the illegal machines on the street to these gangs under the pretext of favoring shopkeepers with a study plastered with snot from the year 2018. , which was made before the quarantine and is not ideal to demonstrate the reality of the market 6 years later.


Marco Emilio does not bother to hide his veneration for permanent betting companies and their vertical businesses and his clear intention to facilitate and lighten their burdens is evident; In the Coljuegos reports, the prominence is always the contributions of the sports bets, the permanent bets, the prize he received from the permanent bets, the trip that the permanent bets sponsored to Las Vegas... and the localized ones who are the ones. we contribute more, there!


Mayors of the country have denounced that even the FARC ( illegal armed group named terrorist by US government  ) are in charge of the illegal Chance in the regions of Tolima, Sucre and Nariño and this is well known by Coljuegos, so how do they intend to not respect resolution 2016000006944 that regulates the machines on the route and that has not taken off? because of the entity itself.


Be careful that this great goal is for the entire gaming industry, Coljuegos headed by Marco Emilio could open the entrance to money laundering from the street, I know that we all know that it is true. What how? Well, it's simple, if the machines that leave the casinos and the spells end up there, there is no way to control them. However, resolution 2016000006944 is very clear and concise and describes perfectly how the development of these elements should be, going through a laboratory and so Coljuegos knows every move, something very different from the Online systems that transmit from a Casino, since the design of these machines is server-slave and the entity has access to the program and the soul of the system.


How are we in the companies with the lack of leadership and proactivity of Coljuegos with the permits, are we going to have to fight against the mafia whatever it may be?

You can not leave without reading this news!

The illegal Online market in the United States exceeds the Legal income 3 to 1. 

President of Coljuegos Marco Emilio will open the door to money laundering in the gaming industry?

A report conducted by YieldSec and commissioned by the Campaign for Fairer Gambling (CFG) suggests the illegal sports betting and online casino markets are far outpacing the legal betting market.




The report says 103 legal operators (both online casino and sports betting apps) target U.S. customers, while there are 860 illegal operators targeting U.S. customers. The report says those illegal operators generated $40.9 billion in gross gaming revenue in 2023 compared to $16.9 billion for legal operators.


The report even estimates the amount wagered on the 2024 Super Bowl via illegal operators was $500 million more than the amount wagered through illegal operators in 2023.


The black market is alive and well in America. Legalizing iGambling was never going to adequately weaken the illegals,” CFG founder Derek Webb said in a press release. “But the presence of the black market has served as a useful foil — the legal gambling sector’s main rationalization for expansion.”


Substitution from illegals to legals is simply not happening at the pace it should – illegals are used as brands of choice and convenience, with some substitution to legals for offers and account opening incentives, when available, as with the Super Bowl,” the report concludes.

It is impossible to love without humility because the proud do not understand, do not listen, do not dialogue, and offend.

In this week of reflection, we bring you again some capsules, which regardless of your creed, have small messages that we hope you will take advantage of to improve your life and your relationship with your environment and your peers; Let's take these days to put our ideas in order and move forward in this enormous challenge of being better people and being happy.




Be aware that the arrogant ego loves to change others, control them, manipulate, and submit.


That ego is the self without love and without God, proud, denied humility and, therefore, prisoner. It is impossible to love without humility because the proud do not understand, do not listen, do not dialogue, and offend.


He does not forgive or ask for forgiveness, he dominates, subdues, despises and believes he is right.


A wise man said: “All evils spring from pride, which is lack of love, and good things come with humility.”


Ego it means “I” in Latin and there are three kinds of egos:


1. Loving ego, listen to it and follow it.

2. Proud ego, give it many doses of humility, but it is not bad. Nothing is.

3. Defective ego, it focuses only on the negative and you must give it self-love and security.

Why Bruno Mars gambling scandal could open the door over more control against ludopathy. 

President of Coljuegos Marco Emilio will open the door to money laundering in the gaming industry?

Pop singer Bruno Mars has been in the spotlight recently for reportedly racking up $50 million in gambling debts at the casino he’s been performing at — though MGM Resorts said in a statement to MarketWatch on Thursday that this speculation is “completely false,” and that Mars “has no debt with MGM.”  


One Grammy-winning artist aside, gambling poses serious financial challenges to millions of Americans, both at in-person casinos and online. 


About 2.5 million adults in the U.S. are estimated to have a severe gambling problem, while another 5 million to 8 million have mild or moderate gambling problems, according to the nonprofit National Council on Problem Gambling. It impacts regular consumers and celebrities alike, with golf star Phil Mickelson recently opening up about his gambling addiction on Instagram. Mars has said he played cards to make money before his music career


Sports gambling has grown significantly in recent years amid a wave of legalization across the country that has made it easier for people to place bets on their phones. Americans legally wagered $119.84 billion on sports in 2023, up 27.8% from the previous year, according to the American Gaming Association. Since the U.S. Supreme Court struck down the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) in 2018, it’s been up to individual states to legalize sports betting, and it’s now legal in 38 states plus Washington, D.C.


Some people who can’t control their gambling problem have gambling disorder, a diagnosable condition that’s associated with a higher rate of suicide. 


Gambling’s financial impact can be severe: The average debt generated by men with a gambling problem ranges from $55,000 to $90,000, while for women it’s $15,000, according to, an informational website about debt maintained by the nonprofit InCharge Education Foundation. Many withdraw cash advances on their personal lines of credit and rack up expenses on their credit cards to gamble. 


Some people also borrow money, called a casino marker, from casinos by filling out an application on-site; legally, this is handled differently from a short-term loan.


According to online materials from Las Vegas attorney Joel Mann, “Under Nevada law, casino markers are not considered a loan. Rather, they are like a check that you have written to the casino. If you do not have the money in the bank to cover a marker when it comes due, you can face serious criminal charges.”

Casino suffers from hypochondria on cannibalization debate. 

President of Coljuegos Marco Emilio will open the door to money laundering in the gaming industry?

The recent online-offline casino cannibalisation debate that took place (albeit by proxy) between Deutsche Bank and Eilers & Krejcik (EKG) in the US was an illustration of how important the topic is to discussions around online casino regulation and is just as relevant to French and wider European developments on the issue.



The report was carried out by EKG on behalf of the US online gambling trade body iDEA Growth and surveyed “how the legalization of online casino gambling affects land-based casinos” in the US. It found that online players tended to be younger than their offline counterparts, but operators that have both online and offline offerings “have not observed cannibalization”.


The Before-&-After


Comparing the growth rate of land-based casino before and after Online Casino was introduced, the report found that “in all six states (where online is regulated in the US), land-based casino revenue was positively impacted by the introduction of online casinos”.


In France, the potential cannibalisation of land-based casinos by digital casino portals is a key issue in the debates around online casino regulation. Debating the topic in the French parliament in Feb23, the gambling regulator Autorité Nationale des Jeux (ANJ) said land-based casinos would suffer a 30% hit to their revenues in the event of online regulation.


In the US, the regulatory set up in the leading online casino states of New Jersey, Michigan or Pennsylvania requires online operators to partner with offline casinos. That system also applies in Europe in countries such as Belgium and Switzerland.


In reference to the EKG report, the DB team commented that while some observers “appear to (be) doing mathematical acrobatics to arrive at a certain conclusion, we believe the data speaks for itself”… “While it may not be what some want to hear,” the analysts added, “in one paragraph and one chart, we have shown, for some time, and show here again, that iCasino is in fact having an impact on B&M casinos.”


DB added the “underperformance” of land-based casinos in New Jersey, Philadelphia and Michigan, the three states “that actually matter” as they “generate >90% of 2023 iCasino GGR, is so clear that we struggle to see how, but not necessarily why, one could reach a different conclusion”.


In the past year and relative to 2019, the performance of B&M casinos in iCasino states is +0.6% compared with +11.7% for B&M-only states. The issue also fits into broader debates around whether (poorly-drafted) regulations push players towards illegal operators.  


Without doubt it will reappear in France in the coming months and observers will also note issues like the different age groups that online and offline casinos attract. And with PMU joining AFJEL this week, stakeholders will be gearing up for some serious discussions on all these topics.



Let's push in the same direction, progress (II)

think about it


On October 3, 2023, Coljuegos committed to evacuate the processes that were dammed, with the deadline being the 26th of the same month, something that did not happen and as of today, February 27, 2024, has not been achieved due to multiple factors, which They are not attributable to the operators.



What has hindered the bulk of the procedures is the updating of documents that rest in the folders of each of the contracts and that the analysts judiciously review, which is the duty, but which overflows with requirements for the operator to submit documents that are repeatedly last minute before the contract expires, understanding that the person who could issue them may be another state entity that has specific processes and times making their prompt achievement impossible. Added to the above is the inexperience of the analysts themselves, who despite the ISO 9001 certification granted to Coljuegos did not have the knowledge transferred adequately and must consult the Legal Department that decides at its own discretion the interpretation of the lack and which falls into outbursts most of the time.


In the third two months of 2022, an Internal Quality Audit by Bureau Veritas certified the 16 Coljuegos leaders from the areas involved who participated under the MIPG model - Integrated Planning and Management Model - many of whom are no longer in the entity, But this does not prevent user management from being traumatized given that the ISO 9001 standard ensures the continuity of processes, the application of which is currently non-existent and does not allow discussion.


Trust and efficiency are my proposal, and it is not something capricious.”



Trust: if there is seniority in the contracts, if the operator has a track record of decades, why not give the opportunity to receive approval or renewal of the contract, adding an additional yes where a reasonable time is given to correct the novelty? This term, equivalent to the delay in which the processes are, this is not the panacea but it unlocks the bottleneck, thus achieving efficiency, which inevitably generates progress, improving the management indicators that will be reflected in the performance report. accountability and in the upcoming re-certification of ISO 9001 for Coljuegos.


Let's push to the same side,
