ACMA Highlights 19 Upheld Complaints

ACMA Points Out Gambling Violations

The Australian Communications and Media Authority have revealed that they are currently following up on 19 complaints regarding online gambling law violations. The regulator received 108 complaints since the middle of last year. Of those complaints only 38 where investigated further on grounds that there was proper evidence for irregularity. Of those 38 cases, 19 were taken further, with the ACMA issuing notices to the companies.

The issues ranged from unlicensed software to banned services. Australia has seen one of the harshest crackdowns on online gambling, with nearly all online gambling banned by the state. As reputable online casinos have left the country, less than reputable operators have stepped in to attempt to make some quick easy cash.

Now unfortunately many gamblers looking for convenience are stuck dealing with unreliable operators bent on milking innocent players in a broken system where regulations have failed the average gamer.

Habanero Financials Up

Habanero are looking towards 2018 with hope and dedication. All the seeds the company has planted last year will be coming to fruition with analysts for the company claiming that revenues will double in 2018.

Habanareo has sealed 20 licensing agreements in 2017 which have already gone live along with some exclusive European deals that will see the company spread its wings through operators as big as Eurobet and SKS.

Arcangelo Lonoce from Habanareo said in a press statement that the company is really looking forward to building on its current momentum. Plans were also announced for 10 new pokies set to be released throughout the year.

Habanero’s recent software output has maintained the high standards of this company’s excellent pokie games and it will serve as a further reminder that Habanero is not here to just play games, they are here to win.

Microgaming Content Deal With Fairplay

Fairplay Bets is a online casino operator that revealed their plans to offer Microgaming casino content via the Quickfire software platform. The Fair Play group includes other operators like Vegas Play and Diamond World who will now offer the premium gaming content of one of the most prolific and consistently good developers.

Microgaming said in their statement that this marks the first step in the company’s plans to start creating exclusive content deals with independent operators, rather than making their bulk gaming deals with bigger providers. That could definitely be a step in the right direction for the gaming industry which could do with some fresh creative thinking.
