Play’n GO Show Certified Excellence!

Play’n GO are consolidating their reputation as the supplier of choice for regulated markets, as they announce their most recent certifications and their plans for new markets.

 

Already offering content in over 15 regulated jurisdictions globally, this year has seen them move into Sweden, and prepare to enter Portugal, two growing markets in the industry.

While Portugal saw record growth in its land-based casino sector in 2018; Sweden’s new regulations have opened up the casino market and Play’n GO were one of the first to take advantage of the new regulations, signing landmark deals with prominent Swedish partners including ATG and Svenska Spel.

The biggest boost to their reputation is the fact they have chosen to make their entire portfolio compliant in the regions they operate in. Rather than selecting some games for each jurisdiction, as is the current norm, Play’n GO have made sure that any operators they partner with have as much of their innovative portfolio available to them as possible. This gives their operators more freedom of choice and a higher quality selection of games for their players.

New certifications that they have implemented include the addition of in-game progressive jackpots in Italy; the offering of video bingo, video poker and a selection of slot and table games in Spain; Nearly 70 additional slot titles available in the Czech Republic and the offering of table games in Colombia.

Play’n GO continue to be at the forefront of the industry in regards to both content quality and compliance controls. Head of Compliance Sissel Weitzhandler spoke about Play’n GO’s stance on the issue:

We are committed to being the strongest supplier in regulated markets. This approach is an integral part of our products and operations. We continuously striveto be even better at what we do not only seeing that our products adhere to the strictest standards while providing a great entertainment experience.

We have a strong presence in regulated markets, and it’s growing continuously. Our goal is to expand even further in Europe and increase our presence in Latin America. Wherever we go, our partners can be certain to be fully compliant in those markets.”

The New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement has fined DraftKings for violating the self-exclusion rules.

DraftKings has to pay out penalties totalling $7000 to the gaming regulator and return $3277 to customers after failing to adhere to self-exclusion rules.

The regulator hit DraftKings with the maximum $5,000 civil penalty for taking wagers from customers who had requested a “cooling off” period be placed on their accounts.

DraftKings discovered an error within its systems in November 2018 whereby the “cooling off” period had been set to zero days. During the month in which the system was not correctly in place, 54 people who were not meant to be able to deposit were able to place bets totalling $28,887. They lost $3277, which DraftKings will now have to pay back.

Russia’s lower legislative body has approved the bill to simplify the customer registration process for Russian-licensed online sports betting sites.

State Duma has approved the third and final reading of federal law 423799-7, which will dramatically simplify the customer registration process. To take effect, the bill now requires the approval of the Federation Council and Vladimir Putin’s signature.

The bill explains that the “complex duplicate identification procedures” currently required to register with a Russian online bookmaker “encourages players to search for ways to overcome government measures … in order to gain access to foreign sites subjected to blocking by [Russian telecom watchdog] Roskomnadzor.”

The new legislation would allow bookmakers to delegate responsibility for customer identification to the TSUPIS, which will have three business days in which to transfer the info to the bookie. However, bookmakers may opt to conduct some due diligence on any new customer, just to be on the safe side.

If a bettor has already registered with Russia’s public services portal, both the bookmaker and the TSUPIS can accept this information as proof of the customer’s identity, so the customer need not make a physical trip anywhere.

There are some downsides to the simplified registration process, including a cap of RUB60k per individual transaction and a monthly cap of RUB200k for all transactions. However, this monthly cap can be overridden if the player verifies his document at TSUPIS partner’s retail location.

Nikolai Oganezov, who represents Betcity told that the new simplified registration could boost the overall domestic online betting customer base by 5% this year, with the growth up to 15% possible by the end of 2020.

Maine legislature has passed the sports betting bill. The Legislative Document 553 was given final approval by each chamber of the legislature and will now pass to Governor Janet Mills to be signed into law.

LD553 opens up the market to all of the state’s bricks and mortar gaming venues, such as commercial racetracks, off-track betting facilities, and commercial and tribal casinos. It will also allow mobile operators to apply for licences without the need for a land-based partner in the state.

Successful applicants will have to pay $20,000 as licence fee, 10% tax on land-based wagering revenue and 16% rate for mobile wagering. The bulk of revenue raised through these taxes will be allocated to the Maine General Fund.

Operators will be permitted to offer odds on all professional, collegiate and amateur sports events. Betting on events involving Maine-based colleges and universities will be prohibited. Only citizens aged 21 and above will be allowed to bet.
