BGC Responds to UKGC’s Announcement on Games Design
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

Responding to the UK Gambling Commission’s announcement on games design, Michael Dugher, chief executive of the Betting and Gaming Council, said:

“As the standards body representing the regulated industry, the BGC is determined to drive change and promote safer gambling. That’s why we welcome the Gambling Commission’s announcement which builds on the BGC’s new code of conduct from last September for the design of online games in a bid to further improve player safety.

“BGC members have already introduced measures including the slowing down of spin speeds and banning several gaming features which have caused concern.

“Among the major commitments we have already introduced are minimum game cycle speeds of 2.5 seconds, the ending of turbo play, which allows players to speed up games, and the scrapping of multi-slot play, where a player can place multiple stakes on different games at the same time. We are also progressing a game labelling project which will improve labelling of games in order to educate players on key game characteristics.

“None of these new changes apply to the unsafe, unregulated black market online, but the BGC will work with the regulator, academics, consumers and individuals with lived experience of betting-related harm to identify further best practice in game design going forward, to ensure we keep up to date with changes in technology.”

Gambling Venues in Denmark to Remain Closed Until April 5
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

The Danish Government has announced that casinos and gaming halls across the country will remain closed until April 5 at the earliest, in line with extended novel coronavirus (Covid-19) restrictions.

Venues temporarily shut in December last year after the government extended national Covid-19 measures until February 28, with the aim of opening early in 2021.

However, as Covid-19 case rates remained higher, venues have been kept closed in an effort to prevent further spread while Denmark commenced its vaccination programme.

In its latest update, the Danish Health and Medicines Authority announced that despite some relaxation of measures, casinos, gaming halls and restaurants will remain shut until at least 5 April.

A selection of other venues such as some non-essential shops and outdoor visitor attractions will be able to reopen in some regions, while certain year groups will also be allowed back into schools in select areas. All other measures, including travel restrictions, will remain in place until early April.

All the five groups that entered Nagasaki prefecture’s request-for-proposal (RFP) process with the aim of participating in its bid for an integrated resort (IR) licence have qualified for the next phase of the process.

The five groups are: a consortium led by Oshidori International Holdings Ltd; Casinos Austria International Japan; Current Group; the Niki Chau Fwu (Parkview) Group; and One Kyushu, a consortium between Tokyo-listed Pixel Companyz Inc and French gaming operator Groupe Partouche SA.

The prefecture will complete a “first round” of evaluation of would-be partners this month to reduce the list of bidders to three. After that, a second round will include a “competitive dialogue” with would-be partners. The groups will then have to present their projects in August for the prefecture to make a final decision.

Japan plans to initially approve three integrated resorts in the country. Proposals must include a casino, tourism attractions, hotels and meeting spaces.
