The number of unauthorized gambling sites are on the rise in New Zealand
The gambling authority in New Zealand said that they had identified at least 13 international gaming and gambling websites that are masked with .nz domain, and the number is on the rise. It is hard for average players to identify them. Betting on overseas sites, however, is not illegal in New Zealand. Players just have no legal protection since these unregistered sites are not subject to the gambling compliance regulations in New Zealand, which are among the strictest in the world. The risk of encountering scams and fraudulent activities are high in unregulated or under-regulated places. Red Tiger also recently got license from Cayetano’s games, previously only available exclusively to paddy power. The new license further enhances their position as top tier casino games supplier.
First Swiss online Casinos poised for launch as early as July 1
Switzerland passed the new gambling law last summer. After one year, first 4 online casinos are on track to be launched this July: Grand Casino Baden, Casino Davos, Grand Casino Luzern, and Casino Pfäffikon. The new law stipulates that only the nation’s land-based casinos can run online gambling operations. Foreign companies like us who want to operate in the Swiss market will need to partner with one of the local land-based casinos (looks like green dog got to make some friends in Switzerland).
Up to 21 brick-and-mortar casinos can apply for an online casino license. While the first 4 pioneers would definitely gain a competitive advantage over the rest due to earlier access to the market, if they can pass the second round of review by the Federal Council. Before the launch, the four candidates will also need to have all their games that are planned to be launched, certified by the Federal Gaming board. It seems that Baden casino will be the biggest player in the market given that they already have more than 15,000 registered players on their free-to-play online casino. As of early July, local internet service providers will also take actions to block all unauthorized online gambling sites that target Swiss players.
