Greece’s plan for an IR outside Athens has got both good and bad news this month.

The good news came last week after the Council of State rejected a series of objections filed against the Hellinikon project. The objections were filed by local residents who claimed the project’s six “landmark” buildings, each of which will top out around 200 meters tall, will spoil their ocean views.

The court also ruled against the objections filed by Greece’s Archaeological Service, which had claimed the right to veto certain aspects of the project, but the court ruled that the former airport held no particular aesthetic or historic interest.

The bad news came via confirmation that the tender for the project’s lone casino license will now extend through August, if not, into September. The deadline by which interested casino operators could submit their Hellinikon bids was originally April 22, but this date has repeatedly pushed back four times now.

The incoming Development Minister Adonis Georgiadis said the new government would do what it took to ensure the Hellinikon project got underway this year.

Georgiadis said his department was cooperating with his counterparts in the Ministry of State to remove the remaining obstacles, including the long-delayed release of the three ministerial decisions required for the project to go forward.

Google has updated its gambling and games policy. The updated policy authorises advertising of sports betting services in Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Montana, Iowa and Indiana.

These five states join Nevada, New Jersey and West Virginia who all permit sports betting via Google’s “limited beta” programme launched in June as part of the company’s efforts to keep pace with the rapid spread of legal sports betting services.

Under the Google policy, operators applying for the programme will be obliged to provide a copy of their license in each of the states it wishes to advertise in. The limited beta programme will permit operators to promote their services via Google Display Network, Google Ads, AdMob and YouTube but would be restricted in promoting online sports betting services through Google Ad Manager.
