Vote on Macau Junket Bill to Take Place This Month
Macau’s new junket law is expected to be presented to the Legislative Assembly for its final vote on December 15, after the body debating its conditions signs off on its opinion on December 9.
According to reports, the bill will prohibit junkets, agents or management companies from receiving funds for gaming purposes, subject to administrative penalty, if the funds are not intended for gaming purposes, those involved can face criminal penalties.
Under the new bill, junkets and agents will have to open accounts with the gaming concessionaires, where they can deposit gaming-related cash and chips. However, the funds must be owned by the junket or agent.
Gaming concessionaires will be able to open individual accounts for players to deposit funds and chips, but all transactions must be documented and comply with anti-money laundering legislation.
The new law defines a two to five-year prison sentence for illegal acceptance of deposits.
Under the new junket law, junkets will only be allowed to operate with one of the six concessionaires, while all junket applications will be decided on by the Secretary for Economy and Finance, whereas previously these were handled by the gaming watchdog (DICJ).
The current 46 license junkets are expected to be able to maintain their licenses after the new gaming concessions come into effect on January 1, provided they sign an agreement with a concessionaire. Only companies will be able to obtain junket licenses, whereas previously individuals could also register as junkets. The companies will be required to prove at least MOP10 million ($1.24m) in share capital.
After 2024, the government will decide if it wants to alter the overall number of junket operators in Macau, according to its plans for the development of the gaming sector.
EGBA Welcomes the Publication of Ireland’s Gambling Regulation Bill
The Irish Parliament has published the long-anticipated Gambling Regulation Bill. The European Gaming and Betting Association (EGBA), representing Europe’s leading online gambling operators, welcomed the publication of the Bill, which marks a significant milestone in the Irish government’s efforts to modernise the country’s gambling regulations.
The Gambling Regulation Bill proposes new regulations for land-based and online gambling in Ireland, including the creation of a new authority to regulate gambling, a social fund to support education and problem gambling treatment, a national self-exclusion register for online gambling, new rules for gambling advertisements and a ban on the use of credit cards for gambling payments. The Bill will now follow the Parliamentary process, with the first reading expected in the Parliament in early 2023. Subject to Parliamentary approval, the Bill is expected to become law in late 2023.
“Today is a significant milestone, and we congratulate Minister Browne and his team for bringing forward the Bill. EGBA fully supports the Irish government’s ongoing efforts to establish modern regulations that fit the digital age and bring the country’s regulatory framework into line with EU member states. We look forward to the finalisation of the Bill and engaging constructively with Irish policymakers to ensure the outcome is a well-functioning system of regulation that protects the interests of the many Irish citizens who gamble safely and recreationally, sets a high level of protection for consumers and those experiencing gambling-related harm, and provides clarity and long-term predictability for the gambling sector,” Maarten Haijer, Secretary General of EGBA, said.
