Kansas lawmakers support sports bettingReading Time: 1 minute

 

The recent Governor-elect Laura Kelly has pledged her support for allowing legalised sports betting in the state. There is no draft proposal in the fray during the upcoming session of the state, scheduled on January 14. Still, the topic is expected to be discussed. Senator Bud Estes, chairman of the committee that will be in charge of reviewing bills on the topic, said that sports betting will probably happen in some form, and encouraged lawmakers to participate in a special interim committee session on the topic on Tuesday and Wednesday.

“We need to be educated. I’m not going to let my committee go out and pass a lot of legislation right out of the bag. We need to be smarter before we do it,” said Estes.

“It will generate more excitement and interest in sports, which I think will drive more traffic into these social settings,” he said and added that it will also generate more revenue and jobs. “There are a lot of different opportunities there.” commented Representative Jan Kessinger.

Swedish Regulator Imposes Fine on Betway and Mandalorian Technologies

Swedish Regulator Imposes Fine on Betway and Mandalorian TechnologiesReading Time: 1 minute

 

Spelinspektionen, the Swedish regulator, has imposed fine on Mandalorian Technologies and Betway for violating gambling regulations.

According to the Swedish regulations, license holders are only permitted to offer customers a single bonus, however, an investigation found that customers were continually offered bonuses by Mandalorian and Betway.

Mandalorian and Betway have been handed warning from the regulator and issued with penalty fees of SEK9m (£730k) and SEK5m (£406k) respectively.

“As the Spelinspektionen already had indications at the beginning of the year that some gaming companies did not comply with the legislation, on February 19, the authorities issued a letter to all licensees regarding bonus offers. After the letter, the Gaming Inspectorate noted some compliance from the licensees, but the assessment is that further measures must also be taken to achieve full compliance,” Spelinspektionen stated.

“The main purpose of the new gambling regulation, which came into force on January 1, 2019, is to strengthen consumer protection and reduce the negative effects of gambling. The limitation on bonuses is contained in the law to reduce social and economic damage and problem playing. The Gaming Inspectorate will therefore continue to focus on supervision of this area,” Spelinspektionen continued.
