The National Center of Problem Gambling (NCPG) has conducted its 33rd conference on July 17–20, at Denver. The conference brought together regulators and industry leaders to exchange perspectives on leading best practices to promote responsible gambling and sports integrity.

During the Roundtable session “Match Fixing & Integrity: What is the best role for gambling regulators?”, GLMS President, Ludovico Calvi set out the GLMS vision and mission and described the unique role of the Council of Europe Convention on the Manipulation of Sport Competitions.

Ludovico called on sports betting regulators and operators to adopt the GLMS Code of Conduct which articulates a shared commitment to responsible and sustainable sports betting operations. Bringing that commitment to life means addressing critical topics such as: consumer protection, responsible advertising, protection of minors, conflict of interest provisions for operators and their employees, and report obligations for suspicious betting activities.

Ludovico pointed out the critical role of education and prevention in building a culture of integrity and noted GLMS’s portfolio of supports and tools in this regard available to all member organisations.

Ludovico also applauded regulators around the world who are starting to take concrete measures against illegal sports betting, contributing to sustainable, competitive and innovative sports betting that inspires public trust and meets customer demand.

Tribal casino revenues and taxes from racetrack gambling in New Mexico have shown that the industry is contracting in the area. The annual revenues that are shared by tribal casinos within the state declined 10% from 2012 to 2018, shrinking from $69.7 million to $62.8 million.

The state tax income from the nontribal gambling, which is dominated by racetrack casinos, declined by 3% for the same period to $61.6 million, down from $63.4 million.

The briefing from the Legislative Finance Committee notes that growth in the online gambling industry, which is not authorised in New Mexico, may be drawing a share of the market away from New Mexico casinos.

Population demographics also rein in the industry. New Mexico saw just 1% population growth during the six-year period.

Sports betting operations are illegal by statute in New Mexico, but the tribal-state gambling compacts do not specifically prohibit it, leaving an opening for native American casino operators.
