ANJ: Summary of the Online gambling market in 2020: historic performance despite the health crisis
Reading Time: 3 minutes


As soon as it was set up on 23 June 2020, the National Gambling Authority began drawing up its strategic plan for the next three years. It sets out its vision of regulation and how it intends to add value to players and economic players. Five priority focus have been set to keep gambling within a sustainable perspective of recreational gambling.

The development of the strategic plan was launched in July 2020 and continued until November. It was built through a collaborative process involving all ANJ agents as well as members of the ANJ Board. It was also based on contacts with operators or civil society that were organized after the launch of the ANJ. This plan was definitively adopted by the ANJ Board on 3rd December 2020.

Beyond the four objectives defined by the law, the ANJ must carry out its action in a medium-term strategic perspective, specify its vision of regulation and how it intends to bring value to players and economic actors. In short: define the regulator’s project.

This is all the more important as the new legal framework is complex and difficult to grasp for operators, as the health crisis has tightened competition conditions, and because each action taken by the regulator will be scrutinized in terms of its effects on market balances.

The central inspiration of this strategic plan is to keep gambling within a sustainable perspective of recreational gambling.

Given the psycho-social risks associated with gambling and in the particular context of health crisis, it is essential to consolidate a regulatory model that makes it possible to reconcile controlled development of the sector with the protection of the public interests involved, first and foremost the gamblers protection. This is a priority ethical issue for our country, and this ethical dimension of the ANJ’s action is included in all of the regulator’s actions and reflections.


Three methodological principles pass through all the proposals in this plan

Pragmatism: The desire to build step by step the regulatory architecture put in place by the 2019 order so that each operator in the gambling market can realistically and effectively adopt the new obligations;

Dialogue: The need to build regulation with all the actors through an organized and continuous dialogue. The ANJ is convinced that, if the roles of each are distinct, it is essential that the regulator be close to the realities on the ground, in dialogue with the stakeholders in order to best adjust its positions, tools and services;

Coherence: Finally, the concern to work with other public structures to coordinate our actions and offer economic players the most coherent and readable public front possible.

The 5 strategic focus that will guide the ANJ’s action over the next three years are as follows:

1st STRATEGIC FOCUS: Building a “value-adding” regulator at the service of a sustainable recreational gambling market

The ANJ must bring value to the gambling sector by implementing a comprehensive toolkit that includes preventive, prescriptive, control and sanctioning actions in a regulatory continuum. This approach is in the interest of operators, the security of their practices and the confidence of their customers. It contributes to the protection of gamblers and the preservation of a gambling practice that must remain recreational.

2nd STRATEGIC FOCUS: Placing the player at the heart of regulation

Gambling concerns almost one French people out of two, which makes it a very appreciated and widespread leisure activity, oriented towards an essentially recreational practice. However, with an estimated 1.4 million problem gamblers, the prevention of excessive gambling is a central public health issue in which the ANJ must take part; the implementation of the new obligations of operators will be decisive in this respect. Finally, the protection of minors is a priority.

3rd STRATEGIC FOCUS: Building a forefront regulatory system

The gambling market is particularly creative in games offers, promotional strategies of operators or gambling platforms. In order to be in tune with this world, ANJ must integrate this culture of innovation and digital technology, both with respect to the players it regulates and internally, in its operating mode and tools.

4th STRATEGIC FOCUS: Promoting a European vision of gambling regulation

European cooperation with the ANJ’s counterparts needs to be strengthened since many issues, both operational and strategic for the regulation of gambling, are now being addressed at this level. This is the case of the fight against money laundering or illegal gambling or the emerging economic role of gaming platforms. At a time when a choice has to be made between several regulatory models, the ANJ wishes to play a leading role in European and international cooperation.

5th STRATEGIC FOCUS: Strengthening our working community

The scope and diversity of its regulatory scope and the new legal obligations imposed on operators result in a high rate of demand and a very heavy workload for the teams; this pressure also requires a great deal of joint work by the teams.

It is therefore essential to pool resources and information, empower employees and attract new talent. The aim is to make “working together efficiently” the common language of the ANJ, by multiplying opportunities for exchanges and meetings, by introducing new forms of work organization that are more transversal and empowering, but also by embodying the values of goodwill and conviviality on a daily basis.


Do Anti-Lag Apps Work For PUBG?

Reading Time: 2 minutes


One of the things that most of the players complain about when playing PUBG or literally any of the competitive online multiplayer game is LAG. The lagging or delay in the action to be completed in the world of video games is caused by high-ping whether you are on a mobile network or connected to a Wi-Fi.

That is why it is very important for the players to have a more consistent internet connection which causes less lagging when playing the game due to lower ping amount. But getting an internet connection that is consistent enough to provide you with a lower ping throughout the game isn’t easy and that is why in today’s article we are going to figure out if the Anti-Lag apps actually work in reducing the ping for PUBG or any other multiplayer game. If you haven’t tried PUBG yet, we recommend looking for cheap PUBG key where you can find the best price that is available.


What Actually is LAG?

Before we actually find out if the Anti-Lag apps work, we need to know what LAG actually is, right? Well, it’s the time taken for a user’s behavior to have an impact in the game or app. As a result, for the best user experience, latency should be held to a minimum.

If you have ever played games like PUBG and CODM, you’d know exactly what it means, especially when it makes you rage quit the game, when your headshot misses the target by a mile only to get you killed.


Anti-Lag Apps 

There are a ton of applications out there claiming to reduce the ping drastically to provide better gaming experience but do they actually work? Well, there are certain possibilities as to when these apps can come in handy and actually be useful in reducing the ping and that is when your internet connection isn’t being consistent over a range of application or games in your mobile.

But in case of bad internet connection, these apps won’t be able to do anything at all and you’ll probably have to upgrade your internet connection or contact your Internet Service Provider for further assistance.

The way these applications works is finding the best DNS server based on your current location whenever you are playing a game or surfing through the internet, that’s what we refer to as DNS prefetching.


Why do Actually Need It?

Now if you are one of those PUBG fanatics, grinding for XP in a never ending battle against players all around the world, you’d know exactly how much difference the ping can make in deciding the fate of the game. A better ping rate can help you achieve those insane shots without having to worry about the enemy teleporting from one place to another.

And that is where these anti-lag apps come into play to help you drop the high ping but if you are struggling because of your skills, there is no shame in asking for help as these professional players can surely help you boost your account stats.

“Given the devastating way gambling addiction can destroy lives and families, I’ll instruct TfL to bring forward plans to extend the ban to harmful gambling advertisements on the network.”
