EGBA Publishes Overview Map Of Europe’s Online Gambling Licensing Regimes
Reading Time: 1 minute

 

Online gambling is a highly regulated sector. To operate and provide their services in EU countries, EU established gambling operators need to possess many licenses. While in the past, either there was no regulation specifically for online gambling or it was only allowed for state monopolies to provide online gambling services, today the overwhelming majority of EU member states have adopted multi-license regimes which allow several private operators to obtain a license and provide their services in that country.

Only 5 EU member states had competitive multi-license regimes in 2009, whereas the rest had monopolies and prohibitions. In 2019, the situation has dramatically shifted and multi-license regimes have now been adopted in 25 member states (download our new map for more details).

 

The European Gaming and Betting Association (EGBA) is the Brussels-based industry body representing the leading online gaming and betting operators established, licensed and regulated within the EU. EGBA works together with national authorities, EU authorities and other stakeholders towards a well regulated and attractive offer for EU citizens.

EGBA promotes the creation of a safe and reliable European digital environment for online gambling players. A well-functioning digital environment requires regulation that provides a high level of consumer protection and takes into account the reality of the digital economy and consumer demand. It must also ensure that the regulated offer can be attractive enough to appeal to the maximum number of players so as to channel them away from unregulated offers.

More than 20 million EU consumers enjoy the high-quality regulated online gaming and betting services provided by the members of EGBA.  Further, the demand of Europe´s digital consumers for attractive and innovative entertainment services continues to grow year upon year.

The hugely popular online casino comparison site launches in Canada with a completely localised offering

 

Bojoko, the hugely popular online casino comparison site, has launched in Canada for the very first time after enjoying massive success in the UK market.

Bojoko is the Airbnb of the online casino world and allows operators and game developers to upload their own listings which players then rate and review.

Good Game Limited, the company behind Bojoko, has been preparing to launch in Canada for more than two years and enters the market with a completely localised offering.

This includes partnering with licensed online casinos that offer dedicated promotions and bonuses to Canadian players and that offer localised payment options.

All content on the Bojoko website has also been re-written in Canadian English, and all currencies are in Canadian dollars, too.

Bojoko is now calling on online casino operators that accept players from Canada to post their listings and allow players to start rating and reviewing their sites.

Players that sign up to Bojoko can take advantage of exclusive offers and promotions, be notified of any news and updates and “follow” their favourite casinos and game developers.

Joonas Karhu, Chief Business Officer at Bojoko, said: “Bojoko is just what online casino players in Canada need. It is a place where they can find reputable brands and discover the best bonuses and promotions available to them.

“Bojoko has proved to be very successful in the UK by allowing operators to upload their own profiles which are then rated and reviewed by players. We believe this formula will be just as popular in Canada and look forward to welcoming Canadian players to our growing community.”

Bojoko’s Canada launch kick-starts the brand’s expansion into international markets, with plans to go live in additional online casino jurisdictions later this year.
