FAQ’s about GAN’s Italian real money online Regulated Gaming

  • Internet gaming was effectively out-lawed in Italy until 2008 when legislation permitted Italy’s existing retail & online sports betting operators to launch skill-based games online including Poker and traditional Italian card games played person-to-person. GAN launched its first Italian client SNAI SpA online in September 2008. Legislation permitting casino Table games passed in 2011 and casino Slots in 2013.
  • GAN’s client base in Italy comprises major retail gambling operators with counterpart Internet gambling operations. The ban in Italy on the advertising of gambling commenced in June 2018 and has been widely reported as negatively impacting online-only Italian operators of Internet gambling while favouring retail gambling operators.
  • The Internet casino market in Italy averaged EUR 57.7m ($71.3m) in Gross Gaming based on the three (3) months of February 2018, January 2018 and December 2017 market share information reported by the Italian regulator AAMS.

  • There are sixty-nine (69) active operators of licensed Internet casino gaming in Italy. GAN’s nine (9) clients, including Goldbet, represent in aggregate more than 45% of the Internet casino market in Italy based on the market share information reported by the Italian regulator AAMS.

 

Subtitle: The international rating agency Standard & Poor’s (S&P) has recently published a research update for NOVOMATIC AG, which is listed on the Vienna Stock Exchange with bonds. The rating of “BBB-/A-3” with a stable outlook was confirmed, making NOVOMATIC one of the industry leaders.

Gumpoldskirchen, November 20, 2018 (OTS) - In a recent research update, Standard & Poor’s analyzed the strengths and risks of NOVOMATIC – and compared it with international competitors. As one of Austria’s leading companies, NOVOMATIC benefits from its strong European presence, its vertically integration as a producer and operator of gaming machines and less leverage compared to its global peers.

“The good rating confirms our fundamental strategy: We think over longer periods of time and focus on the international consolidation of the group of companies,” says NOVOMATIC CEO Harald Neumann. “We began this process of consolidation a few months ago, which also includes moderate acquisitions and the evaluation of various companies with regard to their optimization potential.” Following the rapid growth of recent years, the time has now come to optimize internal processes and structures across international borders and “ultimately to make decisions about the future positioning of the company in the various markets and divisions,” Neumann explains.

NOVOMATIC is an important contributor to the Austrian economy

The fact that NOVOMATIC makes an important contribution to Austria’s economic performance was recently demonstrated by a study conducted by the renowned “Economica Institute for Economic Research”. The results show that NOVOMATIC
generated a gross production value of EUR 1.3 billion in 2017. At around EUR 2.5 billion, the overall effect for Austria’s economy is almost twice as high – triggered by intensive interdependencies regarding preliminary work with domestic companies and a low import share. The gross production value comprises the value of all goods and services covered by the production process.

Two additional jobs outside the Group are linked to each job at NOVOMATIC through the integration with domestic suppliers as well as through consumption and investment effects. “Besides our vertical integration of more than 90 percent, we also are a reliable customer and partner for numerous companies in Austria,” continues Harald Neumann.

In addition, NOVOMATIC is one of the largest taxpayers in the country. The Group’s activities contributed a total of EUR 439.7 million directly and indirectly to tax revenue in Austria in 2017. The largest tax items: about 45.9 percent of total fiscal revenue was spent on wage-related taxes and social security contributions. Taxes on products accounted for 19.7 percent and VAT for 18.2 percent.

NOVOMATIC also focuses on employee satisfaction. “This ranges from setting up our own training tracks, such as the Corporate Coding Academy, to initiatives that underscore our responsibility as an employer,” says Neumann, alluding to the “Nestor Gold” seal of approval for age-appropriate work and the “berufundfamilie” quality seal awarded by the Ministry of Family Affairs for family-friendly employers.

World Lottery Association Recertifies IGT for its Lottery and Digital Operations
Company Successfully Passes G4 Gaming Operations Intermediate Audit

LONDON, Nov. 20, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- International Game Technology PLC ("IGT") (NYSE: IGT) announced that it has been recertified by the World Lottery Association (WLA) for its Corporate Social Responsibility Standards and Certification Framework. In addition, IGT successfully achieved an intermediate assessment by the Global Gaming Guidance Group (G4) for its Responsible Gaming accreditation. IGT was the first gaming supplier in the industry to receive both the WLA and G4 certifications, in 2015 and 2017, respectively.

WLA and G4 aim to minimize the impact of problem gambling by promoting a worldwide accreditation program for gaming industry operators and suppliers. Both certifications reinforce IGT's commitment to be a responsible vendor and demonstrate the effectiveness of the responsible gaming technology it provides to gaming operators worldwide.

"IGT provides innovative technology, solutions, and services, and it's our responsibility to create solutions that help our customers protect their players," said Robert K. Vincent, IGT Executive Vice President, Administrative Services and External Relations"IGT prides itself as an industry pioneer, and these re-assessments help demonstrate our leadership."

The WLA fully supports the recertification and congratulates IGT on its contribution to responsible gaming."

A WLA-approved assessor, EY, conducted an informed, complete, and impartial assessment of IGT's lottery and digital operations to determine its WLA recertification. EY provided an independent auditor's report on the alignment with the eight sections of the WLA standards, including research, employee programs, product and service development, remote gaming environment, advertising and marketing communications, client awareness, stakeholder engagement, and reporting.

To maintain G4 certification, IGT was independently assessed to confirm that the company goes above the industry standards of providing player protection tools and responsible gaming information on gaming machines. G4 also requires vendors to make a commitment to research, dedicated policies, and employee training.

"G4 is proud to announce that after last year's initial G4 accreditation, IGT has also passed the intermediate audit of 2018, which can only be achieved by showing a strong commitment to continuous improvement," said Pieter Remmers, a member of the G4 Board of Directors. "It is a true testimony to the dedication of IGT and its employees at every level to working collaboratively on corporate sustainability and responsible gaming."

IGT continues to reinforce its commitment to responsible gaming in its lottery, digital, and gaming operations by adhering to eight globally adopted Responsible Gaming Guidelines; working collaboratively with its Responsible Gaming Working Group; launching tailored employee e-learning courses on responsible gaming and problem gambling; and continually updating and following its global advertising and marketing communications Code of Principles.
