The upper chamber of the Legislature has rejected the measure that would permit operators to apply for online sports betting licences.

The National Council on Tuesday voted 18-12 in favour of a suspensory veto of the bill that would give a go-ahead to operators to apply for online sports betting licences in Slovenia. In order to get acceded the bill needs a second vote in the National Assembly.

The suspensory veto on the amendment to the gambling law was supported by state councillors. According to a  member of the National Council, Boris Šuštaršič, the liberalisation of the sports betting market organised by the Sports Lottery of Slovenia would have a negative impact on the financing of disability, humanitarian and sports organisations from concession duties.

State councillors sent a new law to the parliament for a new decision. The National Assembly will have to decide on the statutory texts again at one of the extraordinary sessions, and a confirmation of them will require at least 46 parliamentary votes.

Last week, a chamber of the Assembly voted 35-26 in favour of the bill that backs up the  European Economic Community-based operators to apply for online sports betting licenses. The current regime in the country only allows Športna Loterija to offer sports betting services.

The bill introduced by MP Branko Zorman in January is seeking to raise additional funds for national sports and humanitarian organisations. While Zorman is a member of the coalition Modern Center Party (SMC), which currently governs the European territory, the party never got to approve the bill.

The bill establishes that online sports betting licenses would need to pay €500k, while the annual share of revenue that the government receives would increase from €3.5 million to €13 million.

Royal Dutch Football Association (KNVB) has signed a responsible gaming code of conduct with Nationale Loterij to ensure a fair, transparent and ethical relationship between football and sports betting.

The agreement sets out plans for sustainable cooperation between the organisations, demanding more attention for the integrity and reliability of football and creating a safer environment for sports betting.

“The popularity of football and the growing attention for sports betting are the perfect time to make agreements with each other about those things that keep sports and sports betting fun and thus also how we can protect that together,” Niels Onkenhout, chief executive of Nederlandse Loterij, said.

“Even if the market for online games of chance opens up in the Netherlands and the supply grows, much structural attention will be needed for responsible gaming,” Niels Onkenhout added.

“By signing the code of conduct, we are also taking up our social responsibility on this theme. The opening up of the market for online games of chance offers new opportunities for the football world, but we also have to keep a close eye on the risks,” Jean Paul Decossaux, commercial director of KNVB, said.

“We believe it is important that the integrity of football is not compromised and that the sports experience is enhanced. We are very confident that together in this way we can pay extra attention to the risks, so that football fans can trust what they see on the field and consumers can bet safely,” Jean Paul Decossaux added.
