Miljugadas Owner Sentenced By Argentinian Court
Reading Time: 1 minute

Argentina has handed down its first conviction of an unauthorized online gambling operator, in what local prosecutors hope is the first of many such actions.

The accused is an English citizen who has resided for years in Posadas, Misiones, and created in the country the companies Eligra Solutions SRL and Miljugadas SRL to give the necessary structure to the illicit activity.

The penalty of three years in prison to Mr. Marshall, who formed the companies Eligra Solutions SRL and Miljugadas SRL to give the necessary structure to the illicit activity, will be suspended due to his lack of precedents,” reports the statement from the Public Prosecutor’s Office.

In this sense, Marshall must comply for two years with the following obligations: “set residence, comply with the summons to be made and give notice of departure from the country and the date of his return in case of travel abroad.” The Prosecutor’s Office informed that in the event of inflicting any of these measures, “the conditionality of the penalty will be automatically revoked, proceeding to its capture and transfer to the corresponding jail for the effective enforcement of the prison sentence.

Public Prosecutor Martin Lapadú celebrated the “unprecedented” conviction, calling it “a great incentive to deepen the investigation of more than 180 cases of illegal websites, for which we already obtained more than 130 court orders” requiring local internet service providers to block the offending domains. Lapadú name-checked Spingol.com and Misionbet.com as domains that have been similarly targeted.

Twin River Casino in Lincoln in the US state of Rhode Island will starts sports betting in December.

The casino will open a well-equipped sports betting lounge, with screens showing live games and odds from around the country. “I see folks coming from Connecticut, Massachusetts and New Hampshire,” said Mike Barlow, who heads up operations for the company that owns both of Rhode Island’s casinos.

Rhode Island is among the first jurisdictions legalised sports betting. With Massachusetts and other north-eastern neighbours still debating the issue, Rhode Island lawmakers this summer approved sports betting at the state’s casinos, Twin River and Tiverton Casino Hotel.

Puerto Rico’s legislator has approved a tax reform that makes slot machines outside casinos legal, in spite of the controversy surrounding the move.

Both the House of Representatives and the Senate approved the bill and Governor Ricardo Roselló put his signature make the bill into a law.

The Financial Oversight & Management Board for Puerto Rico had raised concerns against the move, as it argued that these machines would eat into the revenues of casinos, which indirectly funds government programmes. The organisation’s chief executive Natalie Jaresko had criticised the government’s plan and said that the board had not seen evidence that the video lottery proposal would not eat into other island revenue streams.

Even as it was highly questioned, the piece of legislation is expected to be signed into law by Governor Roselló, who repeatedly voiced his support for it and said he was “satisfied” with the plan and that “if there are no hurdles ahead, I’ll sign the bill.” He also explained that “should any obstacles come up (…) we’ll have to fix them fast.”

The Gaming Machine Association of New Zealand (GMANZ) has published the quarterly financial results of the gaming sector. Its highlight is the 3.4 per cent rise in Gaming Machine Proceeds (GMP) from pokies in the country from June to September.

The GMP rose by €6.7 million, but the numbers of poker machines and the venues where they are decrease.

According to GMANZ spokesperson, Bruce Robertson, the results provide a fair reflection of the success of the balanced, controlled and sustainable approach of the Class 4 model that they have in New Zealand. He added that the heightened activity is happening against the backdrop of an expanding economy.

“Gaming venues such as pubs and clubs aim to provide a safe, fun and regulated environment to those who choose this popular form of entertainment. Reduced accessibility to local venues and machines is likely to drive more players into the world of unregulated online gambling,” concluded Bruce Robertson.
