Potential New Casino In The Center Of GdanskReading Time: 1 minute

There is a new intention of creating a new casino in Gdansk in the newely opened IBB Hotel in Dlugi Targ. The one and only issue is that there are already two casinos in the city and the current gambling legislation does not allow another one.

The Warsaw-based company Casino, which manages, among others: a casino in Sopot, wants to open another one in Gdańsk. The company applied for permission to rebuild the premises for a casino and a club with a small gastronomy. Where? In the basement and ground floor of the IBB Hotel in Długi Targ, which opened in April.

We have accepted the casino offer, but now it has to deal with a number of procedures, including getting permission from the Ministry of Finance and the City Council of Gdansk” – said Adam Trybusz, the owner of the object.

The Gambling Act of Poland states that in towns with up to 250,000 residents only one casino can be created, and for each subsequent started 250 thousand inhabitants, their number is increased by one. The number of casinos in the region can not be higher than one casino for each full 650,000 inhabitants.

ACMA probes .cc gambling websitesReading Time: 1 minute

The Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) is investigating the allegation that gambling websites using the .cc domain extension have breached of the Interactive Gambling Act (IGA).

As per the IGA, website operators are prohibited from offering casino-style games and live sports betting to Australian customers.

Gambling operators without an Australian licence are also prohibited from taking bets from Australian customers.

“When deciding if a site should be investigated, the ACMA considers a number of factors, including whether the service being provided may be a prohibited or unlicensed service … and whether it may have an Australian-customer link,” an ACMA spokesman said.

Dr. Charles Livingstone, a gambling law expert from Monash University, said the sites do appear to have breached the act.” The avowed purpose of the IGA is to protect Australians from less well-regulated gambling sites, and to prohibit non-wagering gambling being available online,” he said. “Using a web address of an Australian territory to offer online gambling services is an offence, unless the provider is registered in an Australian jurisdiction.”
