Operators ordered to update fund withdrawal policies

first_img Email Address Topics: Legal & compliance Tech & innovation Regions: UK & Ireland UK punters will be able to withdraw funds more easily in the future after the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) ordered two online gambling companies to update their policies, while the Gambling Commission warned operators to “take immediate action” or face the consequences.Jumpman Gaming and Progress Play will remove terms and conditions that had stopped players from taking out all of their own money in a single transaction.Some customers of the brands had previously been forced to withdraw funds in instalments over an extended period, according to the CMA.Both Jumpman Gaming and Progress Play have agreed to drop these practices and also stop using terms that enabled them to confiscate money from players’ accounts due to inactivity.In addition, Progress Play has agreed to no longer confiscate players’ money if they do not meet identification check criteria within a certain period.The announcement comes after the CMA, in collaboration with the Gambling Commission, carried out in-depth investigation into unfair practices and terms and conditions across the gambling industry.The CMA expects other firms to follow Jumpman Gaming and Progress Play in changing their policies in the near future.George Lusty, senior director for consumer protection at the CMA, said: “People choosing to gamble online should be able to walk away with their own money whenever they want to.“Jumpman Gaming and Progress Play are the first to commit to scrap their unfair withdrawal rules, but we expect companies across the sector to follow suit so no-one gets caught out with unfair terms and conditions when gambling online.”The UKGC has thrown its full support behind the initiative, saying operators that do not remove unfair restrictions will face action from the regulator.Paul Hope, executive director at the UKGC, said: “We are committed to raising standards for consumers in the gambling sector to ensure they are getting a fair deal. We’ve already been working with the CMA to tackle unfair online gambling promotions, and today’s announcement will improve how customers are treated.“In July, we announced new rules, which will make it quicker and easier for the Commission to take action for breaches of consumer law. That includes taking action where firms breach the principles laid out by the CMA.“We support the action taken by the CMA and expect all online gambling businesses to take immediate action to update their practices in line with these, or face action by the Commission in the future.”Image: Santeri Viinamäki CMA clamps down on two companies as GC fires warning to others 29th August 2018 | By contenteditor Legal & compliance Tags: Mobile Online Gambling Operators ordered to update fund withdrawal policies AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Subscribe to the iGaming newsletterlast_img read more

Swedish regulator issues final warning to licensed operators

first_img Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Swedish regulator issues final warning to licensed operators AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Swedish gambling regulator Spelinspektionen has again warned the country’s licensed iGaming operators that it will issue financial penalties or cancel licences for those that fail to comply with licence conditions without warning.The regulator explained that it has felt the need to issue yet another, final warning after receiving complaints and tip-offs about failings by licensees.These, it said, mainly relate to the requirement for all operators to check players’ names against the Spelpaus.se self-exclusion register before allowing them to gamble or before sending them advertising.Despite issuing a warning about the need to carry out these checks last week, Spelinspektionen said that has continued to receive complaints about self-excluded players being sent marketing materials.However, the regulator noted that additional issues were being flagged. It said complaints had been raised regarding the design and clarity of operators’ websites. Companies are required to ensure all responsible gaming information is prominently displayed and to link to all relevant treatment and support bodies on each page of their site.Spelinspektionen reiterated its promise to take action against licensees that fail to comply with this licence condition. It may issue orders to force companies to take action, which in turn could be accompanied by a fine of up to 10% of a company’s turnover. Should a serious breach of regulations be uncovered, the regulator says that operators will be at risk of having their licences revoked.The regulator said that a key goal of market re-regulation was to channel players towards legal offerings and push unlicensed sites out of the market, ensuring licensees comply with regulations was equally important to the success of the market.Going forward, Spelinspektionen said it would not issue any more warnings on compliance, and would issue penalties, orders and licence withdrawals without notice.In related news, Spelinspektionen has issued online betting and gaming licences to lottery betting operator Lottomatrix. The Jackpot.com operator has become the 66th entity licensed by the regulator to date, after Dreambox Games, Ellmount Gaming, Legolas Invest, LeoVegas’ esports joint venture Pixel Digital and More Tech Group had applications approved earlier this week. Swedish gambling regulator Spelinspektionen has again warned the country’s licensed iGaming operators that it will issue financial penalties or cancel licences for those that fail to comply with licence conditions without warning. 23rd January 2019 | By contenteditor Tags: Mobile Online Gambling Casino & games Topics: Casino & games Legal & compliance Lottery Sports betting Regions: Europe Nordics Sweden Email Addresslast_img read more

Tackling digital transformation

first_img Natalie Billingham joined Akamai in 2007 and initially worked in its media sales team covering UKI and Scandinavia. In 2016, she became divisional VP for EMEA Media. Natalie is responsible for ensuring all of the EMEA Media team focus on customer excellence to create, build and maintain longstanding partnerships. She is also one of the founder members of Akamai’s EMEA Women’s Forum.The first wave of digital transformation for the gambling world brought with it new opportunity and prosperity for the industry, but increasing pressure from consumers and regulators may be leading towards a second wave of transformation.This view forms the foundation of a recent white paper from Akamai, who provide an intelligent edge platform for securing and delivering digital experiences. The white paper, titled “Digital Transformation V2.0”, presents some of the company’s views and expectations for digital transformation in the igaming industry. Challenges and opportunitiesWith the constantly evolving state of the industry, Akamai identifies several areas of interest that it feels represent the biggest challenges and opportunities in igaming over the coming years.Top of the list, unsurprisingly, are uncertain regulatory environments. Despite positive developments across the US and Europe in recent months with FOBT and skins betting regulations being enacted, Akamai identifies that igaming businesses may face difficulty meeting the need for fast implementation and changing restrictions while also maintaining competitive advantage and speed.“It’s often said that you have to speculate to accumulate – and when you’re trying to move into newly deregulated markets or take advantage of new technologies, that’s certainly true,” says Natalie Billingham, VP Media, EMEA at Akamai.  “But you want to minimise the risk without minimising the opportunity. Working with a partner that allows you to expand into new territories using an existing platform, or that enables you to deploy new technologies ‘as a service’, means you can scale affordably without all the associated risks”.The white paper also notes record levels of M&A activity in the industry, further exemplifying why flexibility is crucial. To merge firms, enterprise systems, online platforms and security systems quickly, Akamai suggests a consolidated platform to provide the necessary delivery and security features.As well as the growing number of accessible markets, new products and enabling technologies are also emerging, such as social gambling and esports betting, which Akamai identifies as an opportunity to grow audiences. New technologies to capitalise on these markets and products, such as APIs or low-latency live streaming, present opportunities for operators, so long as the technological support underpinning them is strong enough to see the returns.Finally, Akamai discusses how the industry must cut through the hype surrounding disruptive technologies such as AI and blockchain to ensure the use cases can be realised. Competitive landscapeThe white paper also touches on the challenges of increasing competition; especially as new, nontraditional players join the fold. Akamai’s view is that these new competitors will come from three sources – pure online play, adjacent markets and new products such as esports.“A new type of competitor can require a new type of approach if you want to stay ahead of the pack,” says Billingham.  “Pure online players can grow quickly or take advantage of a grey-market position, and social gambling firms can use their broad base of non-cash gamblers to market to. Even esports companies are getting in on the act, offering spectators the ability to bet on the outcomes of events. If traditional gambling companies are only thinking about their traditional competitors, they might not see the real threats to their businesses.”In the face of these three emerging competitor groups, there is a need to ensure compelling and competitive online services compliant to regulations, capitalising on the technology while ensuring a sustainable and scalable business model.With all of these developments shifting the way the gambling industry views itself and its business, Akamai sees success for those that leverage new digital platforms to evolve their operations, ensuring the pillars of security, high-quality and speed are kept at the forefront.To hear more from Akamai, register now for our upcoming webinar, where Tim Vereecke, web performance architect, EMEA, at Akamai Technologies will discuss how real user and performance monitoring can serve to improve customer experiences in modern HTML5 games.  AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Tech & innovation 26th March 2019 | By Josephine Watson Tackling digital transformation Email Address In a recent white paper, Akamai discussed some of the challenges and opportunities in the wake of digital transformation V2.0 in the igaming industry Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Topics: Tech & innovationlast_img read more

Holland Casino hit by visitor decline as profits slip in 2018

Holland Casino hit by visitor decline as profits slip in 2018center_img Casino & games Regions: Europe Western Europe Netherlands Dutch gambling monopoly Holland Casino has posted a year-on-year drop in profit in 2018, despite revenue being boosted from its two new casinos in Amsterdam and Groningen.Revenue for the 12 months through to December 31, 2018, came in at €656.5m (£565.8m/$740.4m), up 2.7% on €639.2m in the previous year.Holland Casino was boosted by additional income from its two new casinos, with average spend per visit across all casinos up from €109 in 2017 to €114. This helped to offset a drop in total visitors, which was down from 5.8m to 5.7m for the year.Table games revenue was up 3.9% year-on-year to €265.8m, partially helped by the new casino sites in Amsterdam and Groningen, while slot machine revenue also increased 2.3% from €332.2m to €340.0m.Holland Casino also noted additional income of €11.4m relating to an insurance claim in connection with a fire at its Groningen site in 2017, which led to the loss of the casino building and its entire inventory. A total of €52.8m was paid out via the insurance claim.In terms of spending for the full year, Holland Casino reported a 0.8% increase in operating expenses from €400.2m in 2017 to €403.3m. Much of this was down to personnel costs, which jumped from €225.8m to €241.6m as the number of employees climbed from 2,708 to 2,920.However, operating costs were down by 1.6% year-on-year to €129.0m, while Holland also noted a drop in depreciation and impairment costs from €43.3m to €32.7m.Higher spending pushed profit before tax down from €98.0m to €82.7m, while profit after tax slipped from €73.5m to €59.5m. Earnings before interest, tax, deprecation and amortisation was also down from €140.8m to €114.9m.However, Holland Casino CEO Erwin van Lambaart was largely upbeat about the operator’s performance in 2018, saying the business made great strides during the year and was able to post a solid financial result.Van Lambaart also said Holland Casino is progressing well with its preparations for legal online gaming in the Netherlands. In February, the Dutch Senate passed the Remote Gaming Act, paving the way for the roll-out of igaming regulation in the country, which would in turn end Holland Casino’s monopoly. In 2014 the operator selected Playtech to power its online offering once the market opens.“The preparations for our digital proposition are on schedule, so that we are ready when the online market opens,” van Lambaart said.Image: fotogoocom Email Addresslast_img read more

NetEnt and ReelPlay strike IP sharing agreement

first_img Email Address Casino & games 27th April 2020 | By contenteditor Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter NetEnt has entered into an agreement with Australian games developer ReelPlay, after each business apparently developed very similar variants of a new in-game mechanic. NetEnt and ReelPlay strike IP sharing agreementcenter_img Topics: Casino & games Tech & innovation Slots Tags: Mobile Online Gambling Slot Machines NetEnt has entered into an agreement with Australian games developer ReelPlay, after each business apparently developed very similar variants of a new in-game mechanic.The agreement will see the pair work together to “extend and protect” NetEnt’s InfiniReels and ReelPlay’s Infinity Reels features. It remains unclear whether this will see the pair collaborate on new product development, or jointly hold rights to the mechanic under different brands.Both InifiniReels and Infinity Reels come into effect when a spin results in a winning combination, adding a new reel to the grid.With NetEnt’s InfiniReels, the new reel contains a Wild or another matching symbol, another reel is added. This continues until no new winning symbols land, at which point the reels revert back to their original size.ReelPlay’s Infinity Reels, meanwhile, adds a new reel each time a win with matching symbols on all existing reels. A multiplier is added for each new reel, allowing for especially large jackpots.NetEnt plans to debut the feature with the release on Gods of Gold InfiniReels on 14 May.However ReelPlay first launched El Dorado Infinity Reels – its first title with the mechanic – in November 2019, with the Egyptian-themed follow-up, Giza Infinity Reels, following in April 2020. A third title, Odin Infinity Reels, will follow in June this year.NetEnt’s director of games Bryan Upton said each company had been “independently following similar ideas”. Therefore it made sense for NetEnt and ReelPlay to work together “to reinforce [their] unique propositions in a highly competitive market”.“I would like to commend and thank ReelPlay for their innovative approach and for working together with us in these dynamic times” Upton added.ReelPlay chief commercial officer David Johnson added: “We are happy to have agreed a collaboration with an established, global pioneer such as NetEnt.” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterlast_img read more

Sportradar’s Genius-FDC case to be heard by Competition Appeal Tribunal

first_imgHowever Lampitt added that the application to have proceedings shifted Court had caused “considerable delays”. This deal gives Genius sole rights to collect, license and distribute live data from the English Premier League, Football League and Scottish Premier League.  “Once FDC and Genius bring their claim or claims in the High Court, those proceedings can sensibly be docketed to the same High Court judge,” Roth said. This is normal practice, according to Roth’s ruling, to avoid “potential inefficiency” created by two different judges presiding over the Competition Appeal Tribunal and High Court cases. This element of the decision was welcomed by Genius Sports and FDC. In a statement they said that while the Tribunal had decided to retain jurisdiction over Sportradar’s claims, it had recognised that the private law rights claims were “intertwined” with the dispute and should be case managed together.  The claim, which was filed in February this year, challenges the structure put in place for the licensing and distribution of football leagues in England and Scotland by FDC and Genius following their exclusive rights deal struck in May 2019. “We welcome the fact that the Competition Appeal Tribunal’s judgment has upheld Sportradar’s submissions, and that the competition law claim will proceed to be determined first and in the specialist forum,” David Lampitt, managing director of sports partnerships for Sportradar, said. 3rd December 2020 | By Robin Harrison “Genius Sports’ and DataCo’s connected arguments to be heard in the High Court concern Sportradar’s alleged trespass, rights infringement and breach of contract,” it said. “These are cases that centre on the funding of sport and football leagues’ ability to participate in revenue from data collected on their events.” Judge Roth ruled that the appropriate way forward was for the case to be chaired by a High Court judge, who would have the option to hold a joint case management conference on the Sportradar claim and Genius-FDC counterclaim. Topics: Legal & compliance Sports betting Legal Product & technology Sportsbook Sportradar alleges that the agreement is in breach of UK and European Union competition law, namely Chapters I and II of the UK Competition Act 1998 and Articles 101 and 102 of the Treaty of the Functioning of the European Union.  Email Addresscenter_img Genius and FDC filed draft counter-claims that alleged breach of confidence and unlawful means conspiracy on Sportradar’s part, in relation to in-stadium data collection. As these fell outside the jurisdiction of the Tribunal – which is also why they are considered “draft” counter-claims – the partners had applied to have the whole case transferred to the High Court. Sportradar’s Genius-FDC case to be heard by Competition Appeal Tribunal Tags: Genius Sports Group Sportradar Football DataCo Sportradar’s legal claim against Genius Sports Group and Football DataCo (FDC) is to be heard by the Competition Appeal Tribunal, after the court dismissed an application by the defendants to have the case transferred to the High Court. It looks to have that agreement declared void, and damages awarded. However Judge Peter Roth ruled that the claim brought by Sportradar turns on questions of competition law, and therefore had to remain in the jurisdiction of the competition forum.
