Switzerland’s upcoming referendum about the online gambling industry will be presented by Dr. Simon Planzer at Prague Gaming Summit 2018

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Prague – 23 February 2018 – The second edition of Prague Gaming Summit will include a wide range topics and compliance updates from various countries in the region and we are adding a new topic in the panel discussion for the event which will take place on the 29th of March at Andel’s by Vienna House Prague.

Besides the compliance updates and opportunities of the Czech, Polish, Slovak, Slovenian and Austriand markets, the event will also feature a presentation of the highly awaited referendum in Switzerland.

On September 29, 2017 the Swiss Parliament passed a revised gambling law entitled the Money Gaming Act. The Act unites Switzerland’s existing acts on casino games and betting/lotteries into a single Act. The new Act equally lifted the current online gambling ban, however only operators of licensed casinos (type A and B) may qualify to apply for an additional online casino license. The new Money Gaming Act therefore provides the possibility to block access to foreign online gambling websites to Swiss citizens.

Despite not being strictly prohibited, online gambling was technically illegal under current legislation but international operators were able to target local players. However, the new law ends that and formally legalises online gambling, but bars international companies from operating within the country.

Therefore, internet service providers will be obliged to block access to international gambling operators’ websites and the Swiss government will provide compensation for any expense it may provoke.

In spite of clearly passing the parliament, the new legislation was challenged by the youth organisations of the Swiss People’s Party, the Free Democratic Party and the Green Liberal Party. They wanted to organize a referendum against blocking international operators which needed to gather 50k signatures in 100 days in order to even take place.

On January 18, 2018 the required number of signatures were finally submitted. Therefore, a public referendum concerning the Money Gaming Act will take place on June 10, 2018.

If the Swiss electorate accepts the act by referendum, the new Gaming Act will remain unchanged and come into force during 2019. In the other hand, the parliament will have to pass a revised new Gaming Act, delaying the process of implementation

The latest topic announcement comes along with the announcement of a new speaker who will join the “Focus on Slovakia, Slovenia, Switzerland and Austria” panel discussion and will give the inside information about the Swiss market and the upcoming referendum.

Metal Casino goes "All in" with Ozzy Osbourne as mega influencer in UK social media channelsReading Time: 2 minutes

Casino for hard rock music fans takes first steps in Britain with incredible videos in which Ozzy plays casino games and reveals the truth about Lemmy, Jimi and Slash

 

22 February 2018 – MALTA (Press Release):  The world’s only online casino for hard rockers – Metal Casino – is now boosting its marketing outreach with ambassador and partner Ozzy Osbourne in a unique campaign.

Starting February 26th, the casino is going to be increasingly visible on both Facebook and Instagram.

After the casino’s successful launch in August 2017, Metal Casino will now turn up the volume in the UK, with a social media campaign boosted by Ozzy, who acts as a mega influencer through his own channels.

In January, Metal Casino travelled to Culver City, Los Angeles to film some exclusive material with Ozzy, including an extended interview where the legend plays the hard rock games Motörhead, Guns & Roses and Jimi Hendrix while reminiscing about his friends Lemmy, Slash and Jimi. He also introduces us to the legendary Rainbow Room and tells us never-heard-before stories about The Beatles and his guitarists, and recalls crazy casino trips with Motörhead’s Lemmy.

The half-hour long interview will be divided into five episodes, which will be released separately through social media channels. In these episodes Ozzy will be giving away signed prizes to lucky lottery winners.

The campaign will reach its peak this spring and summer when Ozzy is touring.

We are absolutely delighted by the results,” said Metal Casino’s Clas Dahlén. “The recordings with the quick, witty and super-professional Ozzy became an epic rock documentary with elements of casino gaming.

The interviews will be a perfect vehicle for reaching out to music and gaming fans. Metalheads will be wowed by Ozzy’s personal memories from the history of rock that have never been told before, and hopefully they will go viral on social media.

Previously, Metal Casino has brought together the world’s top hard rock stars as influencers, such as Scott Ian (Anthrax), David Ellefson (Megadeth), Lord Ahriman and Sweden’s own king of rock, Dregen.

This spring’s campaign with Ozzy, together with our new Metal Casino Live stream on Wednesdays and Fridays, will increase the brand awareness and strengthen our three promises: True, Relevant and Dedicated, and boost customer influx even more,” added Dahlén. Metal Casino – All in for the fans!
