This bill amends the Betting and Gaming Act.It is the second phase in the modernisation process of the games of chance policy, which aims to prevent gambling addiction, protect the consumer and discourage illegality and crime.
Remote games of chance are games of chance in which the player takes part with electronic means of communication and without physical contact with (the personnel of the) the organiser of the games of chance or a third party which provides a room and resources for the participation in the games of chance.
Because of the lack of direct contact between the player and the games of chance provider, these games involve different and bigger risks of fraud and gambling addiction than the traditional physical (“land based”) games of chance.
Proper and strict regulation of remote games of chance involves among other things that additional measures are set to prevent gambling addiction, including a central register for the exclusion of games of chance3, as well as additional supervision and enforcement powers for the Games of Chance Authority and amendment of the games of chance legislation.
