Casinos Austria to Cut 350 Jobs

Casinos Austria’s supervisory board has finalised its major restructuring plans. Robert Chvátal, chief executive of its majority shareholder Sakza Group, has been named chairman of the board.

Under the so-called ReFIT plan, Casinos Austria aims to reduce costs by up to €45m, and cut around 350 full-time roles from across the business.

The exact number of layoffs, it said, would be determined following discussions with employees, and it noted that most job losses would be through staff mutually agreeing to depart, retiring, or shifting to part-time working.

“[The] supervisory board has ensured that [Casinos Austria Group’s future] is sustainably secured and that high quality forms of gambling can continue to be offered,” Bettina Glatz-Kremsner, chief executive of Casinos Austria, said.

“The package was developed almost entirely on the basis of internal expertise in record time. I thank my colleagues for their professional and committed cooperation, and to the employee representatives for their constructive attitude in often difficult negotiations for the good of the company,” Bettina Glatz-Kremsner added.

German Youth Protection Regulator Approves HooYu as a Suitable Age Verification System
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

The German Commission for the Protection of Young People in the Media (Kommission für Jugendmedienschutz – KJM) has approved HooYu as a suitable age verification system.

The KJM offers providers legal certainty by reviewing concepts and systems to check that they meet the technical requirements to satisfactorily perform age verification which enables ID document validation and identification by means of an automated process involving the comparison of biometric data.

“As gaming operators embrace the new German regulatory regime, they are looking to age verification systems approved by the KJM. At the same time, operators want a customer sign-up process that makes it easy and convenient for the user to go through the age verification process. The HooYu digital KYC journey does just that, it solves both sides of the equation – what the regulator is looking for and that smooth sign-up experience that gaming operators want to provide to their users,” David Pope, Marketing Director of HooYu, said.
