UK’s DCMS Issues No Deal Brexit Checklist for Gambling OperatorsReading Time: 1 minute

 

The UK’s Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) has issued an eight-point checklist for the gambling operators to prepare for a potential no-deal Brexit.

Three of these points involve staffing issues, including whether staff needs a visa or work permit for the countries in which they plan to work, whether staff needs to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme and to ensure they meet certain immigration rules, including “crossing into Spain from Gibraltar.” Gibraltar is where many UK-licensed gambling operators chose to base their EU-facing business.

The UK government also believes gambling operators need to ensure that there are no legal issues with their handling of personal data from the EU and European Economic Area. Operators also need to ensure their accounting and reporting practices meet EU/EEA requirements.

UK-based online gambling operators that provide services to customers in EU markets need to appoint an EU representative to ensure their online security standards make the grade. Existing contracts must be scrutinised to ensure that operators have the necessary copyright permissions to offer certain licensed content outside the UK.

Google Relaxes Gambling Advertising Policies in Five US StatesReading Time: 1 minute

 

Google has updated its gambling and games policy. The updated policy authorises advertising of sports betting services in Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Montana, Iowa and Indiana.

These five states join Nevada, New Jersey and West Virginia who all permit sports betting via Google’s “limited beta” programme launched in June as part of the company’s efforts to keep pace with the rapid spread of legal sports betting services.

Under the Google policy, operators applying for the programme will be obliged to provide a copy of their license in each of the states it wishes to advertise in. The limited beta programme will permit operators to promote their services via Google Display Network, Google Ads, AdMob and YouTube but would be restricted in promoting online sports betting services through Google Ad Manager.

BetWarrior launches leading mobile sports betting productReading Time: 1 minute

 

Disruptive mobile gaming brand and platform BetWarrior has added a best-in-class sports betting product as it enters the next stage of its growth.

The fully-native BetWarrior app, which first launched in the summer, is now live with a customised Kambi-provided sportsbook in selected markets across Latin America.

Via an advanced suite of APIs, BetWarior has integrated the Kambi sportsbook into its Omega Core platform while leveraging its own AI and machine-learning tools to create a game-changing personalised mobile betting experience.

BetWarrior has spent the past weeks onboarding early users to road test the product; with sports betting now live, it will scale marketing as it targets regulated markets in Latin America and Europe.

Morten Tonnesen, co-founder and CEO of BetWarrior, said: “This is a major landmark in the development of BetWarrior, and we can now offer our users a complete mobile betting and gaming experience that stands apart from everything else out there.

“We set up BetWarrior with the intention of radically transforming the way people experience sports betting, and in partnership with Kambi, we have created a personalised mobile sportsbook like none other. We are hugely excited to watch the first players enjoying the action.”

BetWarrior has also recently been expanding its casino offering, adding content from the likes of MGA Games and Microgaming.
