Uruguay has green-lighted a piece of legislation that will ban offshore online gaming companies from operating in the country and also introduce new taxes on state-approved gambling activities.

 

Last week, the new “Accountability Law” passed the Senate by a 30-6 vote. Uruguayan President Tabare Vazquez signed the legislation into law this week.

According to the bill, all forms of online poker and casino activities are “absolutely prohibited” in the country via remote channels.

Monopoly La Banca de Quinielas national lottery is the only licensed operator allowed to operate online gambling in Uruguay, although this exception will only apply to sports betting activities.

The operator will face a new 0.75% tax on the gambling turnover made via approved casinos, gaming halls, racetracks, and sports betting shop.

The legislation will also give new powers to the state to “adopt various preventive and sanctioning measures to prevent the proliferation” of online gambling. This could mean “blocking of access to websites, financial frauds, as well as the prohibition of commercial communications, sponsorship and advertising of unauthorized games”.

Yokohama Mayor Fumiko Hayashi Rules Out Referendum on IR
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

Yokohama Mayor Fumiko Hayashi has ruled out a referendum on IR. She said her administration will continue to work alongside the national government to develop the prefecture’s bid for an integrated resort despite opposition.

“IR is not something that should be decided by referendum. We are operating within the guidelines of the national government,” Hayashi said.

The comments were directed to the residents’ group, the Yokohama Citizens’ Group to Decide on a Casino, which has been gathering signatures since September 4 to demand a referendum on whether or not to continue with the IR plans.

Hayashi said that introducing IRs was a national government policy.

“There will be people for it and against it. We will continue with considerations based on the budget decisions of the city council, who represent the city’s residents,” she said.

Critics point out that when she was elected for her third term in the 2017 mayoral election, she had declared she was personally undecided on an IR bid.

“All of my policies are decided after discussions with the city council. I would never take action based on my own, personal decisions,” Hayashi said.
