Norwegian Payment Blocking Investigated For Privacy Breaches

January 20, 2018 · Filed Under Gambling Articles, Online Gambling Laws, Online Gambling News 

Norway’s Payment Blocking Receives Complaint

A Norwegian payment blocking organization is being investigated for privacy breaches. The European Gaming and Betting Association asked the Norwegian Data Protection Inspectorate to initiate the investigation for analyses of violating the privacy rights of citizens when conducting online payments. The EGBA claims that the privacy breaches break the Norwegian Data Protection laws and Human Rights.

The Norwegian Payment Blocking Regulation was first introduced back in 2010. The regulation prohibits all business who do not have a license in Norway to accept or transact payments on prizes and wagers with online gambling activities.

Maarten Haijer, Secretary General of EGBA said,

“Online data protection and the right to privacy are a major concern to all Norwegian and European citizens and rightly so. As more and more of our information goes online, we must be able to trust that our online data is protected.”

Haijer added,

“The data protection rules for online gambling companies are very stringent, and these companies are rightly expected and forced to comply with those rules – but the law requires the same from public authorities like the NGA. In this case we believe the NGA has made a clear breach of data protection rules which the Norwegian DPI should investigate and take appropriate action if necessary.”

Spanish And Colombian Games Certificates Secured By Play’n Go

Play’n Go, online slots provider, reported this week that they secured licensing and regulatory certifications from both the Spanish and Colombian markets. The slots provider said it was a rigorous certification process, but well worth it with them being able to offer its Play’n Go products to new markets across the iGaming industry.

The Colombian market has seen impressive growth while the Spanish online gambling market recently confirmed its position in the European Nations as one of the biggest markets in the industry today.

Sissel Weitzhandler, Play’n Go’s Group Compliance Manager commented on the news saying,

“These in-depth certification processes differ from country to country, so it’s testament to our compliance team that we’ve acquired these without any issues, particularly with Spain and Colombia’s regulatory environments being so different. Each certification program or software licence we acquire secures our position as a games provider to regulated markets, and the experience gained throughout the numerous processes will benefit us as we continue to grow into new territories.”

Net Entertainment Q4 2017 Revenue Decline

Net Entertainment Sees Lower Than Expected Revenue Growth

Net Entertainment posted a trade update this week with the figures not being what they were hoping for. Unfortunately, revenues and operating profits were lower than anticipated for the fourth quarter of 2017. Total profits and revenues amounted to SEK 519 million which is quite a bit lower than what analysts were predicting for the gaming provider.

Net Entertainment is claiming that when you figure preliminary totals compared to market estimates they always range on the lower side. NetEnt, during 2017, phased out the Australian, Czech Republic and Poland markets which hurt the total revenues for the year. Of course, the negative impact effected total revenue growth by about 3%.

Shares were down as well about 18% over the last year when comparing to the Stockholm’s OMXS All Share Index 10% increase in shares.

NetEnt’s total business generated a solid cash flow through the quarter and will be in line for what 2016’s levels were. Net Entertainment held a conference call with the President and CFO of the company. They both said all financial figures are preliminary with the earnings report for Q4 2017 and the full year report expected to be released on February 15th.

UKGC Urged Lottery Operators To Follow Advertising Laws

UK Gambling Commission Warns Lottery Operators Of Advertising Rules

Lottery operators across the UK are urged by the UK Gambling Commission to follow its strict rules regarding advertising laws. Back in November the Health Lottery was warned by the ASA, UK Advertising Standards Authority regarding the amounts lottery players can win for each of the lotto draws.

The advertisement that warning was issued for said lotto players could win up to $137,400 for each of the five weekly draws. The ASA basically said this was false advertisement since no single winner has won the top prize in three years. The Health Lottery was ordered to take their advertisements down and was told to

“not exaggerate the likely winnings available in the lottery”

with all future advertisements.

The UKGC released the following statement,

“One of the key licensing objectives is that gambling is conducted in a fair and open way, this includes any advertising carried out by licensed operators. Where information about the prizes available in your lottery is published you must make sure this is done in a clear, transparent and unambiguous way so that consumers will be entirely clear of the prizes being offered. In particular, adverts must not mislead by exaggerating the likely winnings available.”
