Real Dealer Studios, producer of casino games that combine Hollywood-style cinematography with RNG gameplay, has expanded its geographical reach into a trio of new markets after securing the necessary certificates.

Real Dealer Studios’ unique Real Roulette titles are now available to operators in Sweden, Denmark and Belgium for the first time. The games follow the standard European Roulette format, with dealers Sarati, Bailey, Holly and Caroline each featuring in their own individual title.

Distinct from live dealer products, Real Dealer’s games are created from high-quality recorded video and use professional actors, film directors and post-production crew to deliver a consistently flawless player experience from the very first round.

The provider’s motto is “It’s not live. It’s Real” due to the authentic and immersive experience its games provide, which is in sharp contrast to the live studio ambience. The games are set in a private, luxury casino to create a one-on-one feeling between the player and the dealer.

Christoffer Melldén, Sales Manager at Real Dealer Studios, said: “We are delighted to have secured certificates for Sweden, Denmark and Belgium, which we have identified as key markets under our international growth plan. Our casino games are truly unique, combining cinema and casino in a way that has not been achieved before. We look forward to working with operators in this trio of markets and for their players to experience our titles for the very first time.”

Kerala Government Bans Online Rummy
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

The Government of Kerala has amended the Kerala Gaming Act 1960 and declared online rummy as illegal. The ban will come into force with immediate effect.

The decision comes after the Kerala High Court directive that had urged the state government to take measures against the online rummy business. During the February 15 hearing, the Kerala High Court was told about the online rummy menace. A Public Interest Litigation filed by movie director Pauly Vadakkan had sought action against such sites that hosted the online rummy games. The director in his plea had said that the online rummy gaming business was ruining the youth of the state. The plea had also mentioned a suicide by a young man after he lost a considerable amount due to his habit of playing online rummy.

Kerala is not the first state in India that has banned online rummy. Earlier, Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu have also amended existing laws or brought rules to declare online rummy gaming as illegal.

Ukraine Sets Flat 10% Tax Rate for all Forms of Gambling
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

Ukraine’s Committee on Finance, Tax and Customs Policy has approved a 10% tax rate for all forms of gambling.

The committee considered bill 2713-d, put forward by committee chair Oleg Marusyak, to complement the Gambling Act that legalised various forms of gambling in Ukraine and was signed into law in August 2020.

This bill initially proposed a 5% GGR tax on bookmaking, 10% for online gambling and for lotteries and 12.5% for slot machines. However, the committee opted for a single rate on all verticals instead.

In addition, gambling winnings of more than eight months’ minimum wage (currently UAH48,000) will be taxed as income.

The country’s Gambling Act had also previously required that online betting and gaming licence fees start out three times higher than normal, and would only be lowered once an online player monitoring system is put in place. However, the new tax bill abolishes that requirement.

The Rada will still have to approve the new tax bill, after which it may be signed into law.
