The Georgian Parliament is likely to discuss a ban on gambling advertising. The discussion on gambling ban is going on, even amidst media reports that the government wants to promote and support gambling in several regions in Georgia.

The new legislation is likely to ban the placement of gambling advertisements in medical, educational and religious institutions, as well as in sports and cultural organisations. Moreover, it is proposed to limit advertisement of gambling online, on television and radio. Still, it will be possible to place logos of gambling brands as sponsors.

This spring the Georgian Parliament will also review the bill aimed at support and promotion of gambling in certain regions of the country. According to the document, the tax fee for the construction of casinos in these locations will be reduced. In addition, if the casino is located in the building of a new hotel with more than 80 rooms, the operator will be exempt from paying the fee for up to 10 years.

The goal of the authorities is to improve the situation related to the low popularity of gambling market of Poti, Ureki and Grigoleti among the tourists.

Bulbet announces MIRACL Trust as chosen authentication solution
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Bulbet, the Bulgarian gaming site, has announced MIRACL Trust® as the player and transaction authentication solution for both their Social and Real-Money gaming products. MIRACL Gaming Solutions can uniquely offer the security, scalability and zero-friction user-flow critical for gaming businesses. Not only will MIRACL provide market leading security against both internal and external threats, it will ensure that Bulbet will meet and exceed current European standard PSD2 for transaction authentication.

As a 100% software solution, MIRACL Trust® ID provides true two-factor authentication using the latest Zero Knowledge Proof (ZKP) technology – no personal data is stored or transmitted. This eliminates the need for outdated security practices such as passwords, SMS Texts, push notifications and key-cards.

Usability is paramount, no additional user enrolment steps are required and users authenticate and sign in using a simple PIN. Without the requirement for hardware, mobiles or fiddly second steps, users love the simplicity whilst organisations appreciate the reduction in support and maintenance. Unlike passwords, the PIN authentication immediately eliminates any risk of credential stuffing; good news for users as well as operators like Bulbet – who can face severe fines under GDPR if data is hacked.

Graham Martin, Chairman of Bulbet comments, “Dealing with thousands of transactions on a daily basis – both Social and Real Money – it’s essential that Bulbet is using the very best technology for authentication. MIRACL® delivers this with its’ zero knowledge proof technology that is easy to implement and seamless to manage. In some ways the requirements for Social were even harder, no other solution out there could provide the security we need at a price point which made sense. ”

Rob Griffin, CEO of MIRACL added, “Available for desktop browser and app, MIRACL Trust® authentication is ideal for all gaming sites. It’s very simple to implement yet provides security for authentication like no other. With pressure building for safer gambling and highest levels of compliance – both for gaming licences and PSD2, MIRACL Trust® is the perfect solution. What’s more, its PIN style activation completely eliminates over 90% of all attacks. We’re thrilled to be working with Bulbet. They look set to be the most popular gaming site in Bulgaria and with the best content so we’re honoured to be part of the launch.”
