Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Greentube, the NOVOMATIC Interactive division, has launched its market-leading slot portfolio with Estoril Sol’s online platform, strengthening the supplier’s foothold in Portugal.

The online casino operator has initially integrated Greentube’s top 30 performing games in the Portuguese market, including titles like Book of Ra deluxe, Lucky Lady’s Charm deluxe, Sizzling Hot deluxe and Lord of the Ocean™. More world-famous NOVOMATIC games that have proven popularity in the land-based sector are expected to be added to the roster soon, as well as a selection of Greentube’s innovative interactive content.

The launch is part of a deal with Belgium-based provider Gaming1, which supplies the casino platform supporting Estoril Sol’s online business. Integrating with Estoril Sol’s digital brand ESC Online, a locally renowned operator and the first licensed online casino site to go live when Portugal opened for business in 2016, reinforces Greentube’s strong position having quickly gained market share since launching operations in the country last year.

Michael Bauer, CGO and CFO at Greentube, said: “As a distinguished operator in the Portuguese market, launching with Estoril Sol’s online platform marks another significant step in our expansion strategy and adds another reputable brand to our local client portfolio. Thanks to the existing popularity of our top games in Portugal’s resort casinos, we have quickly established a vast player base in the online sector, which is shaping up to be a pillar of our European business.” 

Rui Magalhães, CEO at Estoril Sol Digital , said: “Greentube offers a unique blend of both classic and innovative titles which capture a range of customer segments from traditional slot fans to modern players, making its portfolio the perfect match for our platform. As a casino that has a strong land-based heritage, Greentube’s collection of retail favourites will make an important addition to our online offering as we look to accelerate growth of our digital brand and offer our customers a premium interactive experience.”

Major European Gambling Brands Cut Advertising on IPR-infringing Sites
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

A new report by the European Commission has found that an industry-led memorandum of understanding (MoU) on online advertising and intellectual property rights has led to a significant reduction in the unintentional placement of advertising from Europe’s major gambling brands on websites which infringe upon intellectual property rights.

The MoU, published in 2018, was established to limit advertising on websites, such as illegal sports streaming sites, and mobile applications that infringe copyright or disseminate counterfeit goods.

As part of its review of the effectiveness of the MoU, the Commission has presented a new report today which found that the MoU has created more awareness among brands that their advertising may end up on IPR-infringing websites. According to the report, the share of total advertising for European businesses on IPR-infringing websites was reduced by 12% since the introduction of the MoU, while gambling advertising from Europe’s major brands (including all EGBA members) decreased by 20%, from 62% to 50% during the reporting period.

The European Gaming and Betting Association (EGBA) welcomes the report’s conclusions and is pleased with the significant progress made by EGBA members and other major brands in reducing the unintentional placement of their advertising on IPR-infringing advertising channels.

“EGBA welcomes the progress made by EGBA members and other major gambling brands in significantly reducing the unintentional placement of their advertising on IPR-infringing websites and is pleased that major online gambling companies are playing a central role in EU efforts to crack down on IPR infringement. Most reputable companies do not intend to advertise on IPR-infringing websites, but it happens and is difficult to control, and EGBA acknowledges that remedial action is needed to prevent it. That is why we have been actively engaging with the European Commission and other stakeholders to take action and are pleased those efforts are beginning to bear fruit,” Maarten Haijer, Secretary-General of EGBA, said.

“EGBA is committed to promoting responsibility and driving standards in Europe’s online gambling sector and we encourage other companies to join us – and be part of the solution, not the problem – by adhering to responsibility initiatives such as the MoU. This initiative proves that greater cooperation at EU-level can benefit the sector and how it is able to respond to the challenges it faces, including on advertising,” Maarten Haijer added.

Europe’s Video Games Industry Concerned by Court of Justice Judgement on Schrems V Facebook Data Case

Europe's Video Games Industry Concerned by Court of Justice Judgement on Schrems V Facebook Data Case
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Europe’s video games industry is disappointed at today’s important decision by the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) in the long-running Schrems v. Facebook Ireland case (Case C-311/18) that jeopardises the ability of European companies to continue to transfer data between EU Member States and the US.  The CJEU has ruled that, whilst data transfer agreements used by Facebook and other companies to share European users’ digital data with third countries are valid so long as the country “ensures an adequate level of data protection”, the EU-US Data Protection Shield (otherwise known as the Privacy Shield), that provides companies on both sides of the atlantic with a clear and cost-effective mechanism to comply with data protection requirements, has been ruled invalid.

The Court of Justice ruled that “the limitations on the protection of personal data arising from the domestic law of the United States on the access and use by US public authorities (. . .) are not circumscribed in a way that satisfies requirements that are essentially equivalent to those required under EU law”.

ISFE CEO Simon Little said: “A solution must be found. The transfer of data between the EU and the US is crucial to the full functioning and continued growth of Europe’s €21bn-strong video games industry.  Our industry is fully committed to the security of player data and supports the European Commission’s work to modernise European data protection rules and to improve the mechanisms for transferring data to third countries, but today’s decision is a blow to the ability of European games companies to reach a global market.”

EGDF COO Jari-Pekka Kaleva said: “The free flow of data between Europe and the US is crucial for game developer studios.  This ruling by the CJEU has the potential to create a significant regulatory market access barrier for European SMEs operating in global digital markets and it will adversely impact anyone working in Europe’s digital economy. Government officials and policy makers in Washington and in Brussels need to act quickly to build a new, more reliable framework for data transfers securing high standards on privacy and enabling the much-needed digital growth on both sides of the Atlantic.”
