Innovative Technology Spain reported a busy and successful Feria Internacional del Juego which took place in Madrid last week.  ITL used the show to demo their two new Spectral recyclers to the Spanish gaming market, as well as their TITO offering plus new automated age verification unit, ICU.

Mustapha Hadj-Ahmed, Group Sales Director commented, “FER is a great networking opportunity as it gives us the chance to meet up with our Spanish gaming customers together under one roof.  This biannual event always provides a relaxed and friendly setting to interact at a local level. Our Spectral product family (which now includes note validators, recyclers, ticket printers and a new bunch note feeder (BNF) module) was the focal point at the show. We introduced our Spectral recyclers to the Spanish market and both the NV22 Spectral and Spectral Payout attracted much interest at the show. They offer the gaming industry secure, mixed denomination recycling as well as large storage capabilities thereby eliminating coin starvation and reducing float levels.  The use of Spectral technology in both units offers exceptional protection against fraudulent and stained notes and full spectral imaging sensors validates the authenticity of notes.  The new BNF module was also demoed quite significantly on the stand with customers impressed with its large 2200 cashbox and deposit capacity giving customers the opportunity to present 100+ notes.”

Mustapha continued, “There was also lots of talk about our successful TITO conversions and installs. Our TITO system is now available in many arcade machines across Spain and we have a team here in Spain dedicated to championing this system. This is a complete solution for any gaming and amusement operators intending to implement TITO. Customers can use the SMART Ticket which is ideal for high volume applications; or the NV12 a more compact option for operators with limited space considerations. Digital and analogue machines can be converted to be TITO compliant and machines fitted with a hub and server give operators a full audit of cash and TITO transactions. We were also delighted to see that our age verification unit – ICU, was also popular on the stand. This exciting new product attracted lots of attention with its ability to successfully predict the age of visitors using intelligent biometrics.”

ICU from Innovative Technology uses biometric algorithms, to verify and automate the policy for controlling access to age restricted premises such as Adult Gaming Centres. This is a standalone unit, so there is no need for customers to pre-register, providing a seamless service for the end user.

Mustapha concluded, “Not only did we have lots of visitors on our stand over the two days, but we were also pleased to see many of our products on other stands too.  Overall it was a great show for us, and we look forward to following up on all our leads, and of course to the next show in 2021!”

Spain’s Ombudsman Calls for Gambling Ad Ban
Reading Time: 1 minute

 

Francisco Fernández Marugán, Spain’s acting Civic Ombudsman, has recommended the Spanish government to issue a complete ban on advertising gambling products and services. Marugán addressed the recommendations to the Ministries of Finance and Health, Consumer Affairs and Social Welfare.

The ban would mean that operators would be prohibited from displaying any form of broadcast pertaining to gambling products and services before a particular time, in addition to the prohibition of celebrity endorsements and gambling signage at sporting events.

Marugán has stated that any operator found to be in contravention of the proposed ban could result in the cancellation of an operator’s license, however, this can only be justified if a total ban is imposed.

Marugán considers that the advertising of gambling and bets “should not be considered protected in the freedom of business, as it is not in products such as tobacco or addictive substances.”

The German state of Schleswig-Holstein has passed a bill that allows the current online gambling regulatory regime to remain in place until mid-2021.

The successful regulation of online gambling on the territory of Germany has proved quite the challenge over the past seven years. The latest version of the Interstate Treaty on Gambling was introduced this year and was presented to the European Commission for a review earlier this month. An approval from EU authorities is one of the necessary steps before the law takes effect at a federal level.

The Schleswig-Holstein has been allowed to implement its own regulatory framework that will stay in effect until June 30, 2021. The framework’s extended validity was voted in favour of by the state’s Greens, Free Democratic Party, South Schleswig Voters’ Association, Christian Democratic Union party, and the Alternative for Germany party.
