Online gambling: eu operators publish Manifesto

commissione-europeaThe European Gaming and Betting Association (EGBA) today published a Manifesto for a sustainable EU policy for online gambling as a contribution to the European Commission Communication and action plan that is to be published this summer. In parallel, the Commission will shortly have its next meeting with national gambling regulators in order to explore areas for EU-level cooperation.

Secretary General of EGBA Sigrid Ligné said: “Our Manifesto is designed to be a timely input to the Commission as it prepares its EU action plan for online gambling.  We are calling for the introduction of European rules to ensure proper protection for consumers while affording fair and transparent licensing conditions for EU operators.”

The Manifesto declares that an effective EU framework to regulate and ensure responsible online gambling should be based on 5 priority actions:

The European Commission fulfilling its role as Guardian of the Treaty

Structured regulatory cooperation among national authorities

An EU legal framework for online gambling

Problem gambling prevention measures based on evidence

EU action to fight sport fraud

As evidence that pan-European online gambling rules for consumer protection can and do work, EGBA today also proudly announces that all of its members have been audited independently and found to be compliant with the Responsible Remote Gambling Measures that had been agreed in the context of the European Committee on Standardisation (CEN) in February 2011 and incorporated into the EGBA standards.

Background – The European Parliament adopted its Report on Online Gambling in the Internal Market in November 2011, calling for EU solutions for the sector and for the Commission to ensure that Member States comply with EU law. Commissioner Barnier announced a Communication and proposals for action and confirmed that the Commission would take its responsibilities in ensuring the compliance of national regimes with the EU Treaties.

On 27 February 2012, the Commission hosted a first meeting of national gambling regulators and officials in order to test their appetite to work together and to develop common EU rules. The outcome of these meetings is also expected to feed into the Communication.

The lack of structured communication and cooperation between EU Member States’ administrations has resulted in a patchwork of different national rules and regulations. This has not only resulted in a number of lengthy legal challenges, costly duplications of administrative requirements and a wide variety in the protection offered to European consumers, but many national regulations also fail to provide an attractive offer, leaving consumers to continue to play with unregulated websites on the black market.

Cjeu: Ag Mazak rejects discriminatory austrian advertising restrictions on gambling

maarten_egbaEGBA welcomes today’s opinion of Advocate General (AG) Mazak stating that the Austrian restrictions are discriminatory and a potential hidden total ban for cross border advertising. According to AG Mazak, in the Hit and Hit Larix case (C-176/11) at the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU):

 

  • “[T]he Austrian legislation making the grant of a permit to advertise [foreign] casinos […] subject to the condition that the legal protection […] corresponds to the protection under Austrian law constitutes an obstacle to the freedom to provide services” (para 12).

  • “[…] I wish to repeat my doubts as to the possibility of actually comparing the level of protection of gamblers in different legal systems, given the lack of harmonisation in the area of gambling and games of chance, as well as the diversity of national legislation in this area” (paras 10, 24).

  • “[A] system of prior authorisation in question could represent a ‘hidden’ total prohibition of the advertising of foreign casinos” (para 24).

  • “[T]he system of prior authorisation in question leads, ultimately, to a discrimination based on the origin of the applicant” (para 25).

  • AG Mazak criticizes that “the grant of a permit depends solely on the content of the legislation of the Member State, without taking account of the actual level of protection provided by the casino operator” as operators “have no influence over” the level of player protection within the national legislation (para 26).

EGBA Director for Regulatory Affairs Maarten Haijer comments: “We welcome AG Mazak’s opinion also for pointing out that the actual level of protection provided by the operator should be considered. All EGBA members comply with the agreement on Responsible Remote Gambling Measures that was agreed in the context of the European Standardisation Committee.”

Haijer further adds: “The AG confirms that assessing whether consumer laws in different Member States are equal is highly doubtful in practice due to the lack of harmonisation at EU level. It also begs the question why European consumers are still subject to different protection levels. It is time to agree on a common set of European consumer protection rules for gambling.”(1)

The Austrian Gambling Act had previously banned all advertising for non-Austrian based gambling operators. After its amendment in 2009, in reaction to an infringement procedure of the European Commission, it only allows cross-border gambling advertising, if the level of consumer protection in the foreign Member State is at least equal to the Austrian protection. AG Mazak is of the opinion that this provision is against EU law.

AG Mazak’s opinion is not binding but will be considered by the Court in its final ruling. The ruling is expected before summer 2012.

Double sunshine from Merkur sun at Fer in Madrid

merkurMerkur Gaming products were presented at two stands at the FER in Madrid. New, differing opportunities are appearing. Present and potentially future market requirements are placing new demands on manufacturers and distributors alike. Each segment has its own focus and own technical and development stipulations. The result to ensure that each market segment receives the full attention it deserves has been to appoint a new distributor – Dosniha from Mallorca – alongside the traditional Spanish distributor Sente from Madrid.

The partnership with Sente spans back many years and the knowhow and support given by Sente has been key to the great success of Merkur Gaming over years. Thus, Sente will continue to support Merkur Gaming in Spain in the Spanish AWP market as it is today. The new ‘Cards West’ AWP series was on proud display. This new series is the successor to the popular reel-based AWP ‘Nefertiti’ in the proven LED cabinet. The unique card features have already been welcomed by the market. Merkur Gaming provides this AWP in a multitude of varieties – to provide the right solution to each AWP segment. These include ‘Cards West’ as reel-based AWP, ‘Cards West Mixed’ as hybrid AWP (reel and video) and ‘Cards West deluxe’ as video-based AWP in the Casino cabinet. Furthermore, Spanish operators and players alike will be pleased to read that ‘Cards West’ is also available as a feature game in the ‘Mixed Games III’ AWP. The transformation to multi-player, video-based gaming machines has occurred in many countries around Europe in the street / AWP market. A prime example is in the home country of Merkur Gaming in which almost a complete move away from reel-based single games to video-based multi games has taken place. The Gauselmann Group has thus amassed even more expertise in the field of multi-games. This innovation, knowledge and expertise have naturally flowed into the Merkur Gaming solutions that are now available to the Spanish market via Dosniha. The multi-game ‘Merkur Magic’ which includes ten separate games is the ideal solution for arcades and has been welcomed with open arms in Spain. It is available in the WB4 casino cabinet as well as the ergonomic Vision Slant Top cabinet that stands out with its beautiful chrome frame.

VLT / SBG technology is making giant strides in global gaming. Merkur Gaming has proven itself time again as an excellent partner in this market segment. We only need to look at the success of Merkur Gaming in Europe’s most important VLT market Italy to receive such confirmation. Thus, Dosniha presented the potential VLT / SBG solution for the Spanish market called the ‘Merkur Magic exclusiva’.

To round off the exciting new solutions that Merkur Gaming offers the Spanish market, Dosniha proudly displayed the ‘Highflyer’ gaming machine that is truly unique in its design and displays the sheer knowledge that Merkur Gaming can tap into at the Gauselmann Group. Here the second 26” screen looks as if it is floating in the air. The player first feels he or she is playing on a slant top and has an excellent view all around – thus particularly to the front – of the ‘Highflyer’. Then looking up, the floating screen seems to appear from nowhere thus making the ‘Highflyer’ such an innovative dual-screen gaming machine. The ‘Highflyer’ has already made a name for itself in Germany and beyond and was a real eye-catcher at the ICE in London. The reclining chair makes sure that the player can relax and enjoy the games of Merkur Gaming over longer periods of time.

Further Gauselmann Group companies, namely the most popular change machine manufacturer in Germany GeWeTe and edict for online gaming were present on the Dosniha stand.

Mr. Thomas Niehenke, COO of the Gauselmann Group, sums up how focused the group is on the Spanish market, “With fifty five years of experience and over 6,000 employees in the group, we have a long tradition and success to look back on. As both manufacturer and operator, we understand the winning formula for gaming success. Our strategy is clear for Spain. Our long-standing partnership with Sente has resulted in great games for the traditional Spanish AWP market. We have experienced radical change in several countries and are well prepared for any such potential change in Spain together with Sente and Dosniha. Merkur Gaming provides the right gaming mix and so more gaming fun for the player and higher returns to the operators”.

Spielo International tailors its products to Malta’s new slot halls program

SPIELO-International_original_CYMK-300x60Malta’s major gaming operators are choosing SPIELO International to provide systems, machines, and cloud hosting services for the island’s new slot halls program. SPIELO International has so far installed a total of 200 diversityTM multigames on OXYGENTM cabinets for two of the major Maltese slot hall operators, Gaming Operations Ltd. and Media Games. diversity continues as SPIELO International’s bestselling multigame product, where operators can select game suites that appeal to their players’ desires. SPIELO International developers have ensured that the games are as exciting and appealing as possible to Maltese players while complying with the new slot hall regulations.

Each diversity game suite features a variety of up to 10 games grouped into categories that can be selected by players via touch screen, with Roulette now available as a selection. Presented on the stylish OXYGEN cabinet, diversity allows players to select their preferred game types with different volatility levels, and is the only multigame on the market featuring proven, top-performing standalone progressive games, all in multi-line and multi-denomination format.

In addition, SPIELO International’s new SYSTEM2goTM turnkey solution for multi-site slot halls has been installed simultaneously across the major slot hall groups in Malta. System2go deployment is so quick and easy that operators can install and deploy the systems on their own.

A total of 290 connection kit units for around 30 slot venues were recently shipped to Media Games, Gaming Operations Ltd., and the Tomino Group. Another 300 units are expected to be shipped and installed in those 30 venues in the coming months, with additional installations anticipated.

To ensure system viability in such small locations, the SYSTEM2go solution was built to be managed centrally from each operator group’s head office. As part of Malta’s new slot hall regulations, operators must provide players with a detailed report of their individual activities at the player’s request, which SYSTEM2Go provides accurately on demand.

SPIELO International has also obtained a Class 4 license from Malta’s Lotteries and Gaming Authority for SYSTEM2go to provide a cloud hosting service for Media Games and Gaming Operations Ltd. The cloud services allow operators to concentrate on providing superior services to the player, while SPIELO International manages their IT operation and provides value-added data and report visualisation through the cloud.

SYSTEM2go includes the CRYSTAL WEBTM floor network and an integrated jackpots system. Additional add-on packages provide ticketing or card cashless with player tracking. This packaged, all-in-one system is based on our proven market tested technology and functionality, and can be quickly configured to meet regulator and operator requirements. For instance, the Platinum ticketing and player tracking option for Malta was customized for connection to a national ‘barred player’ list in accordance with regulations.

SPIELO International has been providing high-performance solutions in Malta since February 2006, beginning with the installation of the CRYSTAL WEBTM floor network and GALAXISTM casino management systems for the Tomino Group (now Tumas Gaming).

Italy forerunner of the concerted action. Which are the results?

europaThe Green Paper on the online gaming and the Creutzmann report impose a new European target: a concerted action between the member States for a consistent European regulation and, perhaps, the introduction of minimum standards. But Italy, in this case, represents “a European forerunner, talking since a lot of time with other regulatory bodies”, says Francesco Rodano, person in charge for the online gaming for the State Monopolies. reminding the cooperation agreement made in recent years between Italy and France, between the regulatory bodies Aams and Arjel. A very good example.

At least in theory. According to Stefano Mallia, of the European economic Committee, “The cooperation between member states is without  doubt desirable and Italy is doing a lot in this sense, being also the first Country that regulated the online gaming.  However, the tangible results of the cooperation between Italy and France are not so obvious”, Mallia says, “but it is an ideal approach”. But also the operators think the same: we must just think to the licenses obtained in France by Italian operators and never started, because the France business seemed not convenient. In spite of the cooperation.

The gaming is on the front page

giornaliIt is an increasingly protagonist of press and of television, radio and online journalism. For better or for worse. In the articles that illustrate the vices and virtues, but also in the advertising pages (commercials or banners or whatever you want) that more and more politicians would to forbid or at least to regulate, in the content and/or in the speading, in a more convincing way than now.

But how information about gaming is evolving, especially in the so called “general-interest” press, the one that turns to million of people?And it is a “correct” information, or ruined by prejudices and misinformation?Let’s speak the operators of the field, starting from Enzo Iacopino, national president of the Association of Journalists.
During last months the game with cash prizes is the subject of a press campaign and of varoius press reports, on the newspapers and on the television: why, in your opinion, this increased attention?
“I can not say in a scientific way from what it results, because I haven’t studied the subject, but I have the feeling, as a citizen rather than as a journalist, that the attention of the society on this matter is considerably increased, so the newspapers report this fact and follow it. Sometimes, as happens also in other fields, not with the strictness that would be necessary. And this leads to the danger that negative messages can be send, for example if we emphasize the fact that somebody won playing ten euros and that just gaming can completely change our life, rather than being a tool that brings a benefit to the State, when of course we talk about regular gaming!”

On the whole what do you think is the current image of gaming that is described by the general-interest press?
“When somebody writes what I said before is true that we run the mentioned danger, but honestly these are not bad news and I think that this need to give good news is not negative. But I think that  we should not follow the trends about this matter and that we must realize the danger to convey negative stimulus to the people. Moreover, often the press talks about the lawlessness and it is true that the crime, which aims to do business, can be interested in  legal gaming: the crime always tries to lay its hands on where there are significant economic benefits. But emphasizing the danger of money laundering just in the legal gaming field it seems to me a little bit funny. Everybody knows that the percentages of winning are to the detriment of the player and the crime is educated, probably it tries to launder money in the illegal gaming! Moreover the interest of some families of the Mafia in the business of videopoker (and not of the legal slots) is confirmed by various judicial inquiries.”
From several directions people is asking for limiting or abolishing the gaming advertisement, do you agree with the “prohibitionist” planning in general and, in particular, in this case?

“If we really want to abolish the gaming advertisement, then really abolish it, even the one on tobacco. We know very well that it is formally forbidden but also that companies found some loopholes to avoid it. Or, then, why we don’t forbid also the alcohol advertisement? When I still had the joy of having some free time, for years I gave a hand to Don Mario Picchi, the first priest to brought in Italy the experience of the therapeutic communities for the drug addicts. During a conference a guy made us an objection: you fight a lot against drugs, but do you know how many people die from alcohol? If the State has to deal with the mental damages, he has to deal also with the physical ones, because every year there are thousand of deaths from alcohol abuse. But of course I am ready to consider any objection and comment for or against this prohibition on gaming advertisement. This is the land of the know-all people, but I don’t want to be one of them: these are my opinions, and now I am speaking more as a private citizen then as president of the Association of Journalists.”

Gaming strategies in order to survive in a lean period

mondo_maniIn 2011 the Global Betting and Gaming Consultants (GBGC) made a research on how the slump of 2008-09 affected the gambling of the most important markets of the world. From the data collected we can deduce that the gaming world, unlike  what many people believe, is not exempt of the deterioration of the economic scene.

In short, the research of the GBGC highlighted that the field of amusement machines is dynamically most suitable to overcome a negative economic cycle because the decrease of the field is limited. Moreover, the field quickly raises again with the improvement of the economic scene.

In front of an economic development, generally the sports betting have rate of growth much higher than other gaming fields. The decrease tends to be more marked when the income at the disposal of the players decreases but the recovery is faster when there is an economic growth and the consumer’s feeling improves.

The field of lotteries, on the contrary, tends to resist during the economic slumps, as sales goes down not much. However, when the economic situation improves, even in a strong way, the lottery sales grow only at a moderate rate.

The field that suffers more than any others, during an economic slump, is the land based casino. The casinos are the ones that lose the biggest revenue when the economy suffers, and are the slowest ones in the recovery when the economy recovers.

Following up the research, the question is the following one: “Which are the strategies of the various gambling operators during the slump periods?”. The question is particularly relevant for the operators in Europe. Apart from Germany and the Scandinavian countries, the income at disposal of the families of all the European countries has worsened in 2011 and it will continue to worsen until at least 2013. The research of GBGC wants to analyze the strategies of the operators to overcome the lean periods.

William Hill (WH), the British giant on sports betting, in 2011 increased its sales both on its stores and on the online operations. Active players on the online part increased from 1.34 million to 1.40 million, an increase of 5%. At the same time, the yield per player increased from 187 pounds to 228 pounds, an increase of 22%, considering the decline of the income at disposal of the English people, the result is quite amazing. However, the number of new customers has decreased from 808 000 in 2010 to 790 thousand in 2011. In addition, the acquisition expense for each new customer increased of 43%, from £75 to £108. In fact, the marketing budget for the sole online field rose from £61 million to almost £86 million, an increase of 40%. So the WH made two bets, and it won both of them. The first one was that new customers will spend more money than WH needed to acquire them, and the second one that the acquired customers would increase their “spend”. How did it do? Mainly increasing the channels and the applications that clients can use to play and wager, it adopted a strategy of “cross selling”, that is to say it launched promotional activities and games that involve both the shops and the online customers, it turned the sports wagerer in poker, casino and bingo players. This fact allowed the increase of collection for each player. Furthermore, the effort to expand the gaming channels to include the smart phones gave good results, in 2011 the collection by mobile phones has increased over 500%.

IG Index, which is skilled in betting on the financial market, the spread betting, has just released its  results for the third quarter (in England the financial year ends on  March 31). The bets of the IG customers in Europe decreased of 18% compared with the same period in 2010, but the turnover increased of 4.2% with the increase of the number of customers of 26.7%. Unlike WH, the IG didn’t acquire customers by increasing its own marketing budget, but making some investments on the technological platform (a platform rich in information that allows instant payments) and offering more innovative services, such as the new Insight program, which allows customers to analyze, for free, various financial markets. The IG, as the WH, has also invested to enable its customers to bet with the mobile phones like iPhone and iPad, Android, Windows Phone 7 and Blackberry.

The use of technology to acquire and keep customers also generates highly innovative products.

Advant Games, a Finnish software company that provides services for the operators, developed a product called TiltCtrl. The software enables operators to detect and prevent the tilt of online poker players, that is to say, induced by frustration the players start to play more money and this leads them to lose a big amount of money in a short time. Following the tilt, players usually change site and the short time gain for the operator turns into a long term loss. This technology allows to keep the customer  for a long time and it goes well with the policy of playing responsibly.

A well-proven strategy is the sponsorship, especially in sports. Bwin is perhaps the forerunner of this strategy, being the sponsor of important football teams such as the AC Milan and the Real Madrid. But Betfred, the third English bookmaker after WH and Ladbrokes, become the sole partner of Kitbag.com. Kitbag.com is an English  successful firm selling sport products online. The idea is clever because the people   who enter in the Kitbag websites already have the credit card in their hands.

There are also some strategies that can be defined as “reactive” ones. The Spanish casinos for example have been very damaged by the hard economic situation, in 2009 they lost 14% and in 2010 9.5% of the takings from gaming. In 2010 the per capita expence on gambling decreased of 7.3%, compared with 2009. From 2007 to 2010 the casino’s customers increased by 30%, but at the same time the takings  of entrance fees (you pay to enter in the casino in Spain) decreased of 14%. It’s clear that the casinos decided to diversify the services they offer to the customers by offering discos, restaurants and bars, and someone even organizing weddings.
