The Austrian gaming market grew by 4 per cent and the revenues touched the €1.675 billion mark in 2017. These are impressive figures, but internationally licensed operators account for 65 per cent of the segment’s revenue.

According to Andreas Kreutzer, of the Kreutzer Fischer & Partner consultancy, online gambling, fuelled by international websites, grew by 11 per cent anyway and had the largest share of the growth.

It is not a positive news for Win2Day brand, the only locally approved online operator. The Austrian government needs to update laws to implement a proper taxation regime on the segment.

Nonetheless, the Ministry of the Interior announced plans to change legislation in order to get ISPs to block unauthorised online operators. The Ministry of Finance later introduced a draft with amendments to the Gambling Act but it was withdrawn over alleged “technical oversight” issues. So far, no further proposals have been submitted nor announced.

ANJ Opens Public Consultation on Gambling Advertising in France

French national gambling regulator L’Autorité Nationale des Jeux (ANJ) has hosted its first citizen workshop on gambling advertising.

The body of research is one part of the ANJ’s “public consultation phase” on the prominence of gambling advertising launched by the regulator following the conclusion of UEFA Euro 2020.

This month, the regulator will host workshops across French provinces, seeking diverse public opinions on how France should update its advertising laws to moderate gambling advertising and protect young and vulnerable gamblers.

ANJ launched its national review after concluding that licensed operators failed to meet its pre-EURO 2020 warnings on advertising standards.

The regulator has split its public research into two phases that will see its citizen workshops followed by an online questionnaire that aims to secure direct feedback on current French gambling adverts.

The ANJ’s advertising research will be supported by France’s ARPP (Professional Advertising Regulatory Authority) and the country’s public health networks to ensure that “gambling is maintained as a recreational practice”.

French licensed operators have also been reminded of their duties to submit “a mid-term activity” report outlining their advertising campaigns scheduled for the remainder of 2021.
