IBIA notifies EC of Lower Austria’s irrational betting restrictions

first_img EU research agency demands urgent action on loot box consumer safeguards July 29, 2020 Share StumbleUpon Related Articles IBIA – MGA must adopt coherent approach on sports betting customer disputes   July 21, 2020 Share Submit IBIA: Australia has made no progress on safeguarding sports integrity   July 28, 2020 The International Betting Integrity Association (IBIA) has submitted its response to the European Commission (EC), in relation to the state of Lower Austria drafting its ‘Sports Betting Act’ which seeks an assessment on compatibility with European Union laws.Last August the executive of Lower Austria, published its draft legislative mandate seeking to comprehensively revamp its state wagering laws, that have been governed since 1978 by the limited frameworks of the ‘Law on Totalizators & Bookmakers’.At present, Austria’s nine states have been granted autonomy on governing wagering services, that have been classified federally as ‘an activity of skill’, with the nation’s casino, bingo and lottery services governed by Austria’s Ministry of Finance (BMF).Austria’s unique gambling regulatory make-up has seen sports betting in the states of Lower Austria and Burgenland (East Austria) become ungoverned for modern consumer engagements related to online betting and retail betting terminals.Submitting its draft act, Lower Austria seeks to establish a two-fold licensing system distinguishing online operators and retail incumbents, in which online licences are granted over a revolving ‘two-year maximum period’. A sharp contrast when compared to retail licensing,  where incumbents can secure a ten-year licence once their initial two-year certification has been concluded.At a consumer level, the executive has chosen to prohibit live betting as a vertical and will further enforce operators to limit all betting wagers to €350 maximum stake-per-bet.Publishing its EC response, the IBIA (formerly ESSA) details its concerns on the effectiveness of Lower Austria’s proposed licensing framework and consumer restrictions of the above-mentioned provisions.In relation to Lower Austria’s licensing regime, IBIA states that the executive has created unattractive conditions for ‘long-term business investment’, not taking into account a betting incumbent’s operational costs, activities, planning and development of infrastructures.“IBIA believes that the differentiation between the licensing durations for retail and online betting is unwarranted and discriminatory. There is no reason why a licensing system for online betting cannot be flexible and amendable.” – The IBIA details on licensing conditions.With regards to the €350 maximum bet restriction, the IBIA states that Lower Austria has failed to present ‘a clear rationale for the limitation’, detailing no evidence as to what a purpose a betting cap serves.The IBIA states that Lower Austria would better serve its consumers by following the established policies and practices of jurisdictions such as the UK and Denmark, where regulators work with incumbents to improve betting parameters, market controls and self-exclusion programmes tailored to each customer’s needs.“It is not in the interests of responsible regulated operators to encourage or facilitate social problems from gambling, in fact, quite the contrary. Such adverse behaviour is to the detriment of responsible operators and the reputation of the industry; regulatory authorities would also impose new regulatory measures and increased cost burdens on operators.”Contesting live betting restrictions, IBIA underlines that Lower Austria’s concerns on the vertical ‘fostering addiction’ and ‘facilitating the manipulation of sports’ as wholly inaccurate.The IBIA states that there is ‘no validity to assertions that potential addiction associated with live (in-play) betting is greater than other forms of betting permissible under the legislation’.The integrity body underlines that the executive could have implemented a number of less restrictive provisions catering for gambling addiction concerns within its draft mandate.In relation to sports corruption and manipulation, the IBIA states that Lower Austria’s live betting restrictions run contrary to available data compiled by INTERPOL and Europol law enforcement bodies.Presenting further evidence, the IBIA details that criminal actors have primarily targeted unregulated betting operators based in Asia, and prefer to wager on traditional pre-match markets which offer higher levels of liquidity allowing for greater opportunity to mask illicit activities.“The Lower Austrian authorities have not provided any evidence that would justify such measures which will have a detrimental impact on the market and the level of consumer channelling. The association, therefore, requests that the Commission explore the appropriateness and compatibility of these unjustified product limitations and the related restriction of trade imposed on licensed betting operators and Austrian consumers in accordance with EU law” – The IBIA states concluding its EC response.last_img read more

India Today @ Olympics: No margin for error in the pool

first_imgFrom start to finish, the Olympics are all about precision. Even though London may be chaotic in terms of transportation, efforts being made in the field of play are truly fantastic.On Wednesday, a select media group was taken to the Olympic swimming pool, where the rivalry between Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte will be on full view. And for the official time-keepers for the Games, it will be all about getting their act together for the thrilling action in the aquatics complex.Compared to The Cube, as the swimming pool in Beijing was called, the facility in London does not look that impressive. However, as far as timing goes, a couple of improvements have been made, such as the battery of timing equipment that has been put in place.Even though nobody is allowed inside the timing area during the Games, on Wednesday, the media had a sneak preview. Computers were lined up one after the other to ensure precision and accuracy. An option is also available to watch replays, which especially help in relay events.One of the officials, Pascal Rossier, spoke at length about how the ‘quantum device’ was being used for the first time in an Olympics. “We did try it out in World Cups and world championship, but this is the first time at the Olympics that we have precision timers which can catch action upto 1/1000th of a second,” he said.With swimmers from several countries training in the pool for more than a week now, the time-keepers have been testing their timing equipment virtually non-stop. “We have a two-timing system and a backup,” Rossier said.There is also a new way by which viewers can keep track of the winners. Right above the starting blocks, illuminating lights have been fixed. Depending on who is leading the race, a light flashes. If there are two lights flashing, then it means that the swimmers is second and if three lights are flashing it means he is third.”From the stands, even if you are not a hard core swimming fan, with this system in place you can keep track of the winner,” said Peter Huertzeler, also involved with time-keeping.Huertzeler, a close friend of Michael Phelps, reeled off several interesting details about how the timing works in the pool. He spoke in detail about the touch pads in place and how a swimmer had to touch it at least with a 1.5kg pressure. He also explained details about equipment that catches the reaction time for swimmers when they take part in relays.Huertzeler was in the United States for the Olympic trials and said he had “a strong feeling this time Michael Phelps versus Ryan Lochte will be interesting”.”I would always tell Michael that he should never turn to look at the timing on the electronic scoreboard before finishing the race and hitting the touch pad. This is not like athletics where you cross the finish line. In swimming, the touch pad has to be struck so that judges and we come to know which swimmer has finished first,” he said.Huertzeler was asked by a local journalist if the touch pad ever malfunctioned during an Olympic race. Huertzeler was flummoxed and then recalled the 1996 Atlanta Olympics where in between two races there was a glitch and the touch pad had to be replaced.Right now, with the Olympic pool throbbing with action, every minute is being caught on camera. In a sport where nano-seconds make a difference and even 4/100th of a second is important, there is no scope for error.At least, that’s what the official time-keepers are saying.advertisementlast_img read more

Governor Declares War On Criminals

first_imgScotty and Aaliyah Barr receive a standing ovation during Governor Dunleavy’s State of the State Address. Dunleavy: “Tonight, I’d like to recognize two Alaskan families that know firsthand the personal devastation that comes from violent crime. Edie and Ben Grunwald from Palmer, who lost their son David; and Scotty and Aaliyah Barr from Kotzebue, who lost a daughter and a sister, Ashley.Unfortunately, we all know their tragic stories too well — two beautiful young Alaskans taken from their families by individuals who have no regard for human life.” Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享“To the criminals, and to the rapists and molesters who see women and children as nothing more than opportunities, I say this to you: We will do everything in our power to stop you, apprehend you, and put you in prison for a very long time,” said Governor Mike Dunleavy in his State of the State address on Tuesday. Dunleavy promised that a wide range of proposals would be announced in the upcoming days. Including initiatives that were introduced during a press conference on Wednesday that will roll back Senate Bill 91, the 2016 law that overhauled criminal justice in the state. Scotty and Aaliyah Barr of Kotzebue are the father and sister of 10-year-old Kotzebue girl Ashley Johnson-Barr, who was tragically murdered in September 2018. Governor Dunleavy: “I say to you, and to everyone, today begins a new day in our state. From this day forward, we will not cater to the criminals and ignore the victims. We will not make excuses and turn a blind eye.”  Dunleavy: “To law-abiding Alaskans, I say this to you: I care if your house is burglarized; I care if your car is stolen; and I care if your loved ones are threatened.” Read and watch Governor Dunleavy’s full State of the State Address here. Dunleavy announced the following public safety actions that he has planned:We will expend the necessary resources for additional State Troopers, provide more local control, and more prosecutors.We will ensure that our courts will remain open five full days a week in order to hear cases.We will provide the focus and the resources necessary to combat the scourge of opiates and other illicit drugs driving up our crime rates and ruining lives.And we will repeal and replace SB 91.last_img read more
