A Philippine councillor alleges corruption in gaming licencingReading Time: 1 minute

 

A Philippine councillor, Brillante Inciong, alleges that there is corruption in the license-issuing process of gaming firms. The councillor specifically names three Parañaque politicians and some officials in his complaint. He submitted a seven-page complaint-affidavit to the Philippine Ombudsman. He demands enquiry of Councillors John Ryan Yllana and Edwin Benzon and city council executive assistant Rick Villanueva for graft, violation of Republic Act 6713 and attempted corruption of a public officer.

He narrated his personal experience in the complaint. Yllana tried to bribe him in April with “grease money” through Villanueva, in order to get him to approve a Letter of No Objection (LONO), involved in a licencing process for a gaming firm. He claims that he refused the offer but later received another bribe proposal by Benzon, who unsuccessfully tried to convince him to accept the “LONO money” in exchange for his support.

Back on June 21, Councillor Inciong was removed from the chairmanship of the committee on games and amusement, which he claims was a move pushed by Councillor Yllana.

New York State Lottery Reports Record Revenues for the 2018 Fiscal YearReading Time: 1 minute

 

The New York Lottery has recorded $8.2 billion in sales for the state fiscal year that ended in March 31, 2019. That includes sales from Powerball, Jackpot, Mega Millions, Scratch Off, Quick Draw and other games, plus revenues generated by the state’s licensed video lottery locations.

The video lottery net win for the 2018-2019 fiscal year was $2.08 billion, third largest in the world behind two Italian lottery operators. The combined sales and net win earnings for the last fiscal year are a new record for the New York Lottery. The New York Lottery generated $3.47 billion in aid designated to support the state’s schools.

The lottery revenues are distributed to school districts according to the same formula used for state aid. A larger, poorer district will receive a higher percentage than a smaller, more affluent one. Lottery contributions account for 13% of all state aid to education for 2018-2019.

Spillemyndigheden Introduces Whistleblower SchemeReading Time: 1 minute

 

Spillemyndigheden, the Danish industry regulator, has launched a new whistleblower scheme for the employees of gambling operators who wish to report evidence of money laundering.

Spillemyndigheden has detailed that employees can report a company’s violation or potential violation of the anti-money laundering legislation to the regulator via a dedicated, anonymous contact form which will then trigger a legal investigation. All submissions will be encrypted to ensure that submissions are secure.

In April, Spillemyndigheden has blocked access to 25 gambling websites after petitioning the country’s telecommunications providers. Danish internet providers have now been obliged to block access to ten igaming sites, in addition to 15 skin betting websites.
