BGC Warns of Impact of New Points-based Immigration System on Casino Industry
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

The Betting and Gaming Council has warned that the new points-based immigration system could have a negative impact on casinos, tourism and the night-time economy.

Currently, 70% of croupiers in the UK are from overseas. Under the new system due to be introduced on 1 January 2021, croupiers will not qualify as having the specific skills, qualifications, salaries or professions.

The Federation of Small Businesses has warned that the proposed measures will hit hospitality and tourism businesses hard.

Casinos employ over 14,000 people, indirectly support another 4000 jobs across the UK and contribute over £300 million in tax revenue every year.

BGC Chief Executive, Michael Dugher, said:

“Casinos are a hugely important part of our country’s leisure industry attracting thousands of wealthy tourists to the UK from around the world. In order to remain competitive our casinos need the best croupiers with great arithmetic agility.

“While we are determined to grow the number of UK croupiers through the NVQ in Gaming Operations available at many colleges and through the world class Nottingham Casino Academy, we need the ability to employ the best from around the world.

“Using arbitrary skills or salary requirements will damage highly successful parts of the UK economy.

“The government has announced exemptions for certain workers and skills and we urge the Government to work with the casino and wider hospitality industry to ensure that we can continue to thrive.”

Following on several major partnerships in 2024, Oddin.gg solidifies its global presence in the official esports data landscape with a multi-year partnership with YaLLa Esports, a leading esports media company and tournament organizer based in the United Arab Emirates.

Established in 2016, YaLLa esports has emerged as a significant force in the Middle East esports scene. As a team of former gamers, they have deep insight into the hearts and minds of esports fans, therefore their success does not come up as a surprise.

We have every reason to believe that their upcoming editions starting this July will produce even better results, and that their CS2 events in the coming years are only going to further bolster their position as leaders in the region.

This deal represents another Oddin.gg’s step forward in integrating server data directly into the full suite of betting services, offering clear benefits to all stakeholders in the sector. The partnership is in line with Oddin.gg’s commitment to support the esports ecosystem by offering sustainable revenue streams.

Marek Suchar, Co-founder and Managing Director at Oddin.gg has the following to say about the partnership: “I’m thrilled to welcome YaLLa Esports to our growing list of partners.

I am sure that a collaboration of two companies with such great passion for esports will not only deliver new engaging products, but also be nothing short of a big boost to the esports industry in the region.”
