Norway extends online-only bingo window to 13 April

The measure is designed to help bingo halls survive the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.As part of this relaxation of regulations, in-person registration requirements for online bingo was suspended, with players able to sign up using the BankID electronic verification solution.These new sign-ups will be expected to register in person once the crisis has passed, and social distancing measures are no longer in place, or have their accounts deleted.Games may only be played between 10AM and 10PM, with each provider only permitted to offer one game at a time.Lotteritilsynet has also introduced new marketing restrictions for the extended online-only window. The games may not be marketed directly to individuals, such as through SMS or email campaigns, and operators are prohibited from offering any sort of bonus promotions in their marketing.The regulator added that it would consider extending the online-only window further, based on the situation regarding Covid-19 and on government advice.In related news, Lotteritilsynet has postponed the payment of funds generated through bingo games to social and charitable causes for the first quarter of 2020.Regulations currently state that bingo hall operators must pay social contributions within two weeks of the quarter’s end, but as a result of the pandemic, this has been pushed back.

Responding to the crisis

first_imgCasino & games The novel coronavirus (Covid-19) crisis has placed the sports betting sector and clubs under tremendous pressure. But it has also shown how the industry can respond responsibly to events, with some regulators working closely with the sector to provide some much-needed adjustments in these extraordinary times, says Hervé Schlosser, founder and CEO of Sportnco. Responding to the crisis The novel coronavirus (Covid-19) crisis has placed the sports betting sector and clubs under tremendous pressure. But it has also shown how the industry can respond responsibly to events, with some regulators working closely with the sector to provide some much-needed adjustments in these extraordinary times, says Hervé Schlosser, founder and CEO of Sportnco.The coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic is a time of unprecedented concern for all those involved in the online sports betting sector. It means huge uncertainty for us as an industry, but also for the sports clubs, leagues and federations that produce the content on which we rely to offer our services and products.Their survival may depend on how much of support they receive from their respective governments, but the loss of any sports clubs, especially the smaller ones, is also felt across local communities. This has a long-term impact on our activity, as first and foremost betting consumers are sports fans and enthusiasts. This is why as an industry we must hope that as many clubs and federations as possible survive the Covid-19 crisis.At an individual level, Sportnco is fortunate to be in a position where it does not have to furlough any of its staff. Thanks to our strong performance in recent years and the investment and strategic backing of our institutional partner BNP Paribas we have the financing to see this period through.As a company we are using the current lockdown period to invest in technology, systems and capabilities to ensure we are primed and ready once sporting action returns. This means optimising our operations, moving ahead on integration projects with data and odds suppliers, launching client apps and site redesigns.In terms of volumes and activity, sports betting stakes in France have dropped considerably, 39% in March compared to February. However we have been very active in order to maintain as much offer as possible for our clients, by adding immediately new authorised competitions in France and new offers in other regulations.Importance of responsible gambling Casino is a welcome additional revenue stream for those able to offer it. At the same time, the sector must act with the utmost responsibility when it comes to advertising, marketing and monitoring customer spend and any sign of problem gambling or addiction.As is the case in the UK, politicians are watching closely and will not look kindly on any corporate or social responsibility transgressions during this period. From speaking to our clients and many contacts across the sector in Belgium and Spain, where the casino vertical is regulated, this is something to which operators are strongly committed.This, in turn, made the news on 1 April that the Spanish government had banned all gambling advertising and prohibited email communications or advertising on social media was so disappointing.The measure means Spanish operators are not allowed to run acquisition or retention campaigns that offer financial rewards, bonuses, discounts, free bets or games, odds multipliers or any other form of prize during the lockdown period.The government took action after the country’s gambling regulator Dirección General de Ordenación del Juego (DGOJ) reported an increase, rather than a downturn, in online gambling activity in recent weeks.The wellbeing of players is of course paramount, but gambling that is promoted and run in a responsible is a vital leisure activity in this particularly difficult period and provides vital revenue for operators.In addition, at a time when people are worried about their jobs and their families’ futures, I believe the industry will act in the best interests of their players. It will show regulators that it can be trusted when it comes to responsible gambling and player safety.Streamlined processes As you know, France has a reputation for being a tough market with restrictive regulations. However, gambling regulator ARJEL has been working closely with operators since the start of the crisis to broaden their offering and authorise bets to be offered on new competitions.These include bets on Chinese football and Taiwan baseball leagues. The onus is on operators to prove first that these competitions have taken sufficient measures to protect themselves from any threat of match-fixing and that there is interest from French players to bet on these events, which there is. Although it is true that it will mainly come from experienced bettors.The French authorities have also loosened the system around ID verification that requires players to send their ID verification code to operators with whom they have opened an account. Instead they can now send a proof of address document. Certifications, audit requirements and monthly tax payments have also been deferred.For companies needing government support, the French state has been highly proactive and stepped in to provide 84% of furloughed staff wages with a cap set at 4.5 times the country’s minimum monthly wage of €1,219 (£1,064/$1,330) a month. It will also assist companies with a €300bn programme of state-guaranteed loans of up to 25% of their annual turnover with annual interest rates set at 0.25%.Contributions to company pensions and national insurance schemes, business rates and rents, have also been pushed back to give operators the time to acclimatise to the new environment.As a company headquartered in France, Sportnco is fully aware of the reputation the country has for being overly bureaucratic. However, the administrative processes the authorities have put in place to address the Covid-19 crisis have been highly effective and streamlined.They provide some much-needed stability at this most uncertain period for all those working in the sports betting sector, clubs and federations. And with the sports leagues potentially restarting in June or early July, there may also be some most welcome news to look forward to in the coming weeks. 16th April 2020 | By contenteditor Email Address Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Topics: Casino & games People Sports betting Strategy Regions: Europe Southern Europe Western Europe Spain Belgium France Tags: Mobile Online Gambling AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterlast_img read more

In November, Sweden’s government launched a consultation on extending temporary controls for online casino, including the controversial SEK5,000 weekly deposit limit, until June 2021. Net gaming revenue for the 12 months ended 31 December 2020 amounted to SEK7.67bn (£667.1m/€761.6m/$923.8m), down 9% from the previous year (excluding non-recurring revenue of SEK163m, which was all received in Q4) The closure of physical casinos reduced net revenues by SEK250m in Q4, resulting in a decrease of SEK121m in operating profit.

Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Svenska Spel revenue and profit decline despite digital growth Regions: Sweden The government said its aim was to better protect players throughout the Covid-19 pandemic. In August 2020, the operator’s board decided to permanently close its casino operation in Sundsvall due to a decline in profits and footfall at the property. This decision carried a non-recurring cost of SEK81m, it said. Patrik Hofbauer The Tur lottery division made up most of this revenue, up 2.0% at SEK4.84bn, while the Sport and Casino digital brand brought in SEK1.95bn, down 8.0%. Swedish state-owned operator Svenska Spel has released its results for 2020, as growth in digital revenues failed to offset the losses suffered due to the closure of its land-based business. Full year results 2020 The closure of the operator’s Casino Cosmopol chain of land-based casinos as a result of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic resulted in a SEK777m reduction in net gaming revenues, it said. Operating profit for the group was down 3% from 2019 at SEK2.40bn. The closure of its land-based operations resulted in a SEK441m reduction in operating profit, the operator said. Net profit for the year came in at SEK1.87bn, down 31% on 2019. The operator said its digital business was growing strongly, accounting for 46% of revenue in 2020, compared to 35% in 2019. This was despite temporary measures on online casino including a SEK5000 deposit cap, which Svenska Spel said “squeeze revenue and reduce revenue growth”. The Tur lottery business also broke online sales records during Q4. Of the full-year net gaming revenue, SEK2.13bn was brought in during Q4, down 14% on the same period last year.

Bacta challenges UK government over AGC reopening schedule

first_img Topics: Legal & compliance Compliance Legal Regulation Bacta has instructed legal firm DWF Law to challenge the thinking behind the delayed reopening, it said. “The decision to prevent this one venue on the High Street from opening with all other retailers is not only discriminatory, evidence for it is absent and it lacks any logic,” he said. Legal & compliance John White, chief executive of Bacta, said the trade body would do everything to focus attention on the unfair – and potentially illegal – treatment of AGCs in the reopening roadmap. DWF claimed the decision to delay the opening of AGCs is irrational, as they have proven themselves to be able to operate safely, with no reports of infections arising from the use of the premises and usually having few customers present at any one time. Regions: UK & Ireland Email Address England entered into its third period of national lockdown in January, forcing all gaming venues to close once again. This followed earlier lockdowns, from March 2020, then again from November.

Bacta, the trade body which represents Britain’s amusements and high street gaming manufacturers and operators, has launched a legal challenge to the government over the delayed reopening of adult gaming centres (AGCs). In a letter addressed to the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, Oliver Dowden, DWF Law said: “Bacta had hoped it would not need to subject the decision to legal scrutiny and/or challenge, but it simply cannot ignore the decision’s discriminatory impact and the long term hit to the AGC industry which would flow from it.” “Our client has never been told any good reason why the disparity of treatment between LBOs and AGCs exists,” the law firm said. “It therefore remains plain that the disparity is not based on any good evidence justifying it.
