Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

Sazka Group’s UK division Allwyn has appointed David Craven as its new Chief Executive Officer, in a bid to increase its chances of winning the race for the next National Lottery licence.

Craven has previously run a number of major gaming software and gambling businesses, such as The Tote and World Gaming, with his “experience at digitising gambling-related businesses” a key factor in his recruitment by Allwyn.

The Gambling Commission is expected to decide later this year whether to award a further term to current incumbent Camelot, or to pass the next licence to a different company.

Sazka has recently recruited Sir Keith Mills as bid chair, along with a number of other heavyweight executives, including former Sainsbury’s Chief Executive Justin King, and Brent Hoberman, one of the founders of Lastminute.com.

“National Lotteries are needed now more than ever. I’ve always focused on how technology can be used to improve the customer experience, whether that be in-store or online,” Craven said.

“Not only does this mean making games fun and exciting, but I passionately believe that technology is the best way to safeguard customers,” Craven added.

ANJ Opens Public Consultation on Gambling Advertising in France

French national gambling regulator L’Autorité Nationale des Jeux (ANJ) has hosted its first citizen workshop on gambling advertising.

The body of research is one part of the ANJ’s “public consultation phase” on the prominence of gambling advertising launched by the regulator following the conclusion of UEFA Euro 2020.

This month, the regulator will host workshops across French provinces, seeking diverse public opinions on how France should update its advertising laws to moderate gambling advertising and protect young and vulnerable gamblers.

ANJ launched its national review after concluding that licensed operators failed to meet its pre-EURO 2020 warnings on advertising standards.

The regulator has split its public research into two phases that will see its citizen workshops followed by an online questionnaire that aims to secure direct feedback on current French gambling adverts.

The ANJ’s advertising research will be supported by France’s ARPP (Professional Advertising Regulatory Authority) and the country’s public health networks to ensure that “gambling is maintained as a recreational practice”.

French licensed operators have also been reminded of their duties to submit “a mid-term activity” report outlining their advertising campaigns scheduled for the remainder of 2021.
