Greek gambling industry in the views of leading operator, Betano-Stoiximan, at Prague Gaming Summit 2020

Greek Gambling Reforms explained by leading local operator at Prague Gaming Summit 2020.

 

Greece is finally ready to introduce gambling reforms that would re-allow the entry of online gambling operators to the market, eight years after they booted them out for the state monopoly OPAP in 2012.

The new regulations have been blocked in the past by Greece’s refusal to abide by EU laws throughout the past decade. When the Greek Ministry of Finance finally acceded to the rules of the European Commission in December 2019, the possibility for new gambling reforms emerged again.

There will be a standstill period for the rules to take effect and this will be until April 1. Greece will allow the 24 operators who obtained licenses in 2011 to carry on their operations until March 31, 2020, which is when they will have to reapply under the new regulatory regime.

At the 4th edition of Prague Gaming Summit you have the unique opportunity to hear more about the gambling industry in Greece from the leading Greek operator’s representative, Panagiotis Skyrlas, Head of Information Security & Compliance – Group DPO at Betano-Stoiximan.

The presentation is part of the “Market Rundown: Ukraine, Poland, and Greece” panel discussion.

Panagiotis Skyrlas holds the position of Head of Information Security and Compliance at Betano-Stoiximan and has over 20 years of experience in the areas of Information Security, Risk Management, Compliance, and Data Privacy. He has completed numerous licensing projects and regulatory consultations in many European countries such as Greece, Romania, Cyprus, Portugal, Austria. He has served as DPO for over 10 years. Since 2018 he also holds the position of Vice President of the Institute of Information Systems Audit and Control Association.
