Spanish and Portuguese gambling industry in focus at EGC Milan 2019 experts from Grupo R. FRANCO and Rato, Ling, Lei & Cortés Law Firm

Major gambling industry markets such as Spain and Portugal to be analyzed by leading experts at EGC Milan 2019!

 

News about the gambling industry in Spain and Portugal has been trending on all gaming media outlets and in the past 4 years, the industry has been booming in these two jurisdictions.

A study, conducted by The Portuguese Association of Gambling and Online Games (APAJO), has revealed that there are between 400 and 600 thousand individual bettors online in Portugal, which represents between 4.6% and 6.9 % of the adult population in the country.

The study titled “Online Gambling in Portugal – The Best Bet for the National Regulatory System” prepared at the request of APAJO by Winning Scientific Management has shown that the Portuguese market had grown in a balanced way and in line with the European markets analyzed. It cautions, however, that licensed operators need more protection at the level of unlicensed game combat mechanisms and the information provided on the sector would be more detailed and comprehensive.

Online gambling has only been available in the country for a few years, but it has quickly grown to become very popular.

The statistics from the Serviço Regulação e Inspeção de Jogos do Turismo de Portugal have revealed that the country’s online gambling market enjoyed its best-ever quarterly performance at the start of this year, generating revenues of more than €47 million in the three-month period which ended on March 31st.

The online gambling market appears to be thriving in Europe at the moment and these new figures concerning Portugal only seem to reinforce that fact. Revenues in the country have seen a significant jump in the past 12 months and all eyes will be on whether it can ultimately keep up this pace in the months and years ahead. It is undoubtedly an intriguing time for the industry and it will be interesting to see just what comes next.

More than half of the revenue was specifically generated by betting, with football accounting for almost 75 percent of online wagering. This put the sport well ahead of its nearest rivals including basketball and tennis. In terms of gaming, revenues were up to €22.6 million with gaming machines – or slots – accounting for more than 63 percent of that. Trailing behind were other games such as online roulette and blackjack.

The gambling industry in Spain is also an increasingly attractive market for operators and suppliers alike; with bright forecasts for the market’s future following its regulation in 2012.

Spain’s current expansion is unprecedented and records show a 20.10% increase in terms of GGR, mostly due to the ever-growing popularity of sports betting online, which is currently above 25% in GGR.

Of course, there’s an increase in new customers, but we’re also seeing an exponential trend of players becoming ambassadors for the transition to online, which is, in turn, the catalyst for a very interesting multiplier effect within their own social circles, with more of their friends signing up to the digital world as a consequence. This is definitely indicative of the new generation of players getting involved in iGaming – and represents fantastic potential beyond the traditional bastion of sports betting.

Almost Two-Thirds of Japanese Oppose Plans for Integrated Resorts

Almost Two-Thirds of Japanese Oppose Plans for Integrated Resorts
Reading Time: 1 minute

 

Japanese citizens continue to oppose the plans for integrated resorts. According to a recent poll, 57.9% of the respondents disagree with the plan and 26.6% agree with it. Among the supporters, 62.8% said they would back the establishment of a casino resort in their area and 29.0% said they would not.

Japan’s public opinion may play a key role in whether some prefectures decide to press ahead with plans to host an IR. Yokohama recently announced it was planning to enter the race and swiftly became the firm favourite amongst major IR operators. However, public opinion against IRs is particularly strong there and may ultimately sway political opinion.

The continued opposition comes despite a concerted effort by operators to win hearts and minds in Japan, sponsoring local festivals and sports events and promoting non-gaming and other elements of IRs.
