The Philippines continues crackdown of illegal online gambling racketsReading Time: 1 minute

 

Law enforcement agencies in the Philippines are continuing their hunt of unlicensed online gambling operations. Recent estimates suggest that around 100,000 Chinese-born immigrants might be involved in the online betting activities in the Philippines.

According to the gaming regular in the country PAGCOR, the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corp., over 170 gambling dens operating illegal online casinos have been raided since 2017. Most of the joints focus on Chinese immigrants, and most of them employ people who can speak the Chinese language of Mandarin.

They are employed in a range of roles from drivers, cooks, and administrative staff to IT professionals.

An investigation by The Beijing News found Chinese migrant workers in the Philippines claiming to be forced into working 12-hour shifts seven days a week, with just one day off a month.

Aside from the Special Administrate Region of Macau, gambling is strictly prohibited in China. That is why rogue companies set up shop in the Philippines and market their gaming networks to those inside the People’s Republic.

Such businesses can become licensed by obtaining a Philippines Offshore Gaming Operation (POGO) certification. But many do not in an effort to avoid taxes and workplace inspections.

Those detained in the raids face deportation, something many of them might actually welcome. Many Chinese nationals say they were promised high-paying jobs, but are instead working in near-slave-like conditions. Workers add that they are fined and penalised for various infractions such as taking too long of a lunch break.

The investigations and subsequent raids of the gambling dens were conducted by the National Bureau of Investigations, Philippine National Police, and the country’s Immigration Bureau.

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.
