Totalizator Sportowy to launch iLOTTO in NovemberReading Time: 2 minutes

Totalizator Sportowy, the state-owned lottery operator in Poland, is going to introduce online sale of Lotto games in November. There will be both Internet and mobile app options for the iLotto purchase.

This is a good news for users who can now play without leaving home. What is more, it will allow the company to reach potential customers who either do not use their services because they do not have a place from which to play, or it is just a waste of time to visit the collection office for them. Sending a coupon from your smartphone will be more tempting than going to the facility. We look forward to more information about the iLOTTO platform, especially since technological solutions enabling its operation have been available for a long time.

The iLOTTO application and platform are not the only novelties the TS works on. The network of non-cash payments in collection offices is still to be expanded.

“When it comes to non-cash payments, from February this year our clients have the option of card payments and through all applications (over 870 total) Lotto shops. You can also pay without cash at over 400 points of such retail chains as Inmedio, LTR, Relay, Szorti or Totolotek as well as at the Carrefour super and hypermarkets. Implementation in subsequent networks is planned for the Q4 of 2018” – Aida Bella explains to us, currently a press spokeswoman for Totalizator Sportowy, and once a bronze medalist of the European Championship 2013 in short track (speed skating).

Works are also underway to integrate the payment terminal with the Lotto sales system – thanks to this, you will also be able pay without cash at individual TS partners facilities. This regards to entrepreneurs who run their own retail and service shops. There will be over 10,000 such points in Poland, and for the time being cash remains the only payment option for Lotto games in such branches. From 2019, it is planned to gradually implement integrated payment terminals for this type of collections.

 “Due to the very extensive sales network (over 17,000 points), which is dispersed, the completion of the implementation of non-cash payments at all LOTTO points is planned until the end of 2020” – concluded Aida Bella.

Hokkaido Excludes IR from 2021 Budget

Hokkaido Excludes IR from 2021 Budget
Hokkaido Excludes IR from 2021 BudgetReading Time: < 1 minute

 

Hokkaido has announced its initial budget for 2021 on February 19, with a 15.4% (JPY432.9 billion) increase over last year to JPY3.25 trillion (US$30.9 billion). This is the third-largest initial budget ever for the prefecture, which will now be proposed at the Hokkaido Prefectural Assembly regular session on February 25.

However, the fund for IR development was a notable absentee following a recent comment by Governor Naomichi Suzuki that an IR was not in the immediate future for Hokkaido.

Funds being set aside in prefectural budgets have traditionally been considered by experts as a strong indicator of a prefecture’s intentions regarding IRs. The fact that no funds have been set aside for IR development in Hokkaido’s 2021 budget appears to signal the death knell for any remaining glimmers of hope that Hokkaido could somehow jump back into Japan’s IR race.

At a press conference, Suzuki positioned the new fiscal year’s budget as “a budget that protects lives, livelihoods and creates a path for the future.” It is hoped this will help the prefecture navigate the COVID-19 pandemic and build a society resistant to infectious disease while also promoting Hokkaido’s future in a post-pandemic world.

Revenue has declined in the economic downturn and the prefecture’s financial situation is strained. Governor Suzuki commented, “We will firmly defend ourselves while at the same time starting on proactive policy. Balancing defense and offense has been difficult but we will accept the challenge to build a future for Hokkaido while controlling the pandemic.”

Japanese Politician Raises Concerns Over China Blacklist on Overseas Casino Tourism Destinations

Japanese Politician Raises Concerns Over China Blacklist on Overseas Casino Tourism DestinationsReading Time: 2 minutes

 

The Japanese government has refrained from commenting following a question from House of Representatives member Kenji Eda regarding concerns that Japan’s first integrated resort developments could see the nation added to a blacklist being compiled by Chinese authorities on foreign casino destinations.

The blacklist, originally revealed by China’s Ministry of Culture and Tourism last August and expanded earlier this month, is said to comprise overseas tourist destinations that are “disrupting” China’s outbound tourism market by opening casinos targeting mainland Chinese customers. The blacklist system would see travel restrictions imposed on Chinese citizens going to overseas cities and scenic spots named on the blacklist.

Eda revealed via his personal blog that he had submitted a question regarding the blacklist and its potential impact on Japan’s IRs, stating, “In August 2020, China announced that it would create a blacklist system to restrict travel to foreign cities that had a casino, with the allegation that overseas casinos threatened the property and safety of their citizens. With that in mind, we can understand that there are concerns that overseas casinos are a hotbed of crime, particularly corruption and graft. I request an answer if the government is aware of this system.

“Further, this, adding to the impact of the coronavirus, could have a major impact on IR (casino) operation in East Asia, which relies heavily on wealthy Chinese visitors. In the past, The Chinese government has restricted travel to South Korea because of deployment of the US military’s ground-based missile interception system, and there is a risk they could use this system politically.

“Considering this system, even if we build casinos (IR) in Japan, we cannot have expectations that foreigners, and especially Chinese tourists, will be able to visit.”

In response, the government said, “We are aware that the Chinese government has announced the establishment of a system as you described in August 2020, but the specific details are yet to be announced so we will refrain from comment.”
