ROMBET pitches in for responsible gambling
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

ROMBET, an association of gaming operations based in Romania, has pitched in to spread the message of responsible gaming. The organisation is making informative materials, articles, press news, interviews, and event presentations, to publicise the complex issues of responsible gambling. Practice is not entirely responsible for a certain type of problems or addictions.

“A study initiated by the Stanford University and published in the manual of diagnostic of psychic disorders, the fifth edition, shows that there is no such thing as dependency, but rather addiction. This means that we, the psychologists from Responsible Gambling will have as arguments that not only the gambling halls are responsible for the fact that certain players get to an advanced pathology, but the fact that there is also a genetic component. The studies show that 2 per cent from the world population is predisposed to some form of addiction,” mentioned Leliana Valentina Pârvulescu, within the event ”The Exact Time in Gambling”, organised by Casino Life & Business Magazine within Entertainment Arena Expo 2018.

In fact, within EAE 2018, the most important event of the industry from Romania, the Responsible Gambling Association – where ROMBET is a founder member – attended for the first time as exhibitioner and organised the 4th edition of the seminar “Responsible Gambling”, with the support of the National Office for Gambling (ONJN).

Within the seminar were approached present-day themes for the gambling industry from Romania, as well as online psychological counselling – new directions of intervention in gambling problems, examples of good practice in responsible gambling, as well as the latest trends in the therapy of gambling addiction.

The responsible gambling component was a dominant one also for the participation of ROMBET at Entertainment Arena Expo 2018 and at the seminar  “Exact Time in Gambling”, organised by our partners from Casino Life & Business Magazine.

“As the main decision makers from the gambling industry from Romania become more and more involved in the matter of responsible gambling, we discover new and new faces of this aspect which should enjoy several types of support: the first, and most important, from ONJN, which should provide its entire support for the crystallisation of the programmes of this type and the incrustation of the responsible practices. The second, from the part of the operators: all the companies, without exception, must understand that a business environment without problems, completely transparent, is the equivalent of a solid future for this industry. And the third one, not less important, from the part of the society, which, on the one hand, should understand that the gambling halls do not represent, themselves, a danger, but the way each person chooses to use this means of entertainment”, declared Mr. Dan Iliovici, vice president ROMBET.

Ukraine Releases Full Text of Gambling Reform Bill
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

Ukraine’s authorities have released the full text of the bill to legalise gambling in the country. The draft also contains the provisions for online betting and igaming. This is a bit surprising since the government had earlier announced that the gambling will be restricted exclusively to certain territories and hotels.

The draft bill also permits igaming, online betting, online poker and retail bookmaking at other locations.

Ukraine will issue 10 online casino licences, 10 online betting licences and five online poker licences. The country will also issue 80 retail bookmaker licences, which will allow for 10 locations each.

In addition, 20 casino licences will be available only to five-star hotels that have at least 200 rooms if located in Kiev and at least 150 rooms if located elsewhere.

Operators must possess capital of at least UAH30m ($1.20m) in order to apply for a licence.

The bill also creates a gambling regulator for the country, the Commission for the Development and Regulation of Gambling. The seven-member Commission will be accountable to the country’s Cabinet of Ministers and will develop licensing conditions for conducting business activities, which must be approved by the cabinet.
