GLMS 2019 held at the Olympic Museum in Lausanne a training-educational workshop to train its members with the use of GLMS monitoring platform, as well as to raise awareness on good practices of Lotteries closely working with the sports.

The workshop was organised by GLMS in close coordination with the IOC, highlighting the close relation between Lotteries and the world of Sport at its highest level. Lotteries and national sports organisations were encouraged to take advantage of their close relation at a national level and create further educational programmes in the highest interest of Sports Ethics. GLMS Members had also the opportunity to receive a training on ad-hoc education.

GLMS President, Ludovico Calvi commented: “I am very pleased with the organisation and the success of this educational training event here at the Olympic Museum in Lausanne. Thanks to this event, our members not only had the chance to further familiarise themselves with our intelligence and monitoring activities, but also were inspired to get more active in education and prevention initiatives, as also recommended by the Council of Europe Convention on the manipulations of Sport Competitions. I was also pleased to see many of our partners, IOC, FIFA, UEFA, INTERPOL and EUROPOL, actively involved in supporting GLMS in the pursue of one of our key strategic objectives – education and prevention – and highlighting how GLMS adds value to their integrity activities.”

Head of OM PCM Unit, Friedrich Martens concluded: “The Olympic Movement relies heavily on the support of the Lotteries and when it comes to the prevention of competition manipulation, Lotteries through GLMS have been a significant partner of ours. We were pleased to welcome Lotteries across the world at the Olympic Museum and discuss – together with various International Federations and stakeholders – how Lotteries and sport could further join forces in order to mutually cooperate more effectively in the fight against competition manipulation. We look forward to strengthening our cooperation with GLMS towards this direction.”

Bet365 Launches Bet365.mx Domain
Reading Time: 1 minute

 

Bet365, the UK based online gambling operator, has launched the Bet365.mx domain in Mexico’s digital market. The site lists Ganador Azteca, Mexico’s second largest media firm, as Bet365’s local partner.

TV Azteca was granted a 25-year gaming license last year that originally allowed it to open one land-based casino in the state of Veracruz. The license also permitted the company to operate a single gambling website.

Last November, this license was amended and permits the company to “operate individually or with one or more operators, to collect bets through various domains or various internet sites.” Later that same month, the license was amended again to specifically identify Bet365.mx as the domain by which the company planned to serve Mexican gamblers.

Companies in Netherlands Express Their Interest for Online Gambling Licence
Reading Time: 1 minute

 

In the Netherlands, a total of 125 companies have told the country’s gambling regulator that they are interested to obtain the online gambling licence, once it becomes legal in 2021. Two-thirds of the requests come from outside the Netherlands and include big names such as Bwin, Unibet and Pokerstars.

Earlier this year, the Senate voted to open up the market to other companies. Holland Casino is the only state-regulated gambling establishment in the Netherlands.

The new law is restrictive and contains a number of elements to try to combat addiction. Players have to register and state their limit and will be periodically reminded of the risk of addiction on screen.

The gambling firms will also have to appoint an addiction expert and pay gambling taxes of 29%, which is one of the highest in Europe.

“It is going to be expensive. You have to pay for the licence, tax and a percentage of your earnings must go into a fund to combat addiction,” Lawyer Justin Franssen, on behalf of some of the applicants said.
