A successful application

first_img Pallavi Deshmukh is the CEO of NetGaming. Pallavi has worked in the online gaming industry for over 15 years. Starting her career at PartyGaming as an affiliate operations manager, she went on to head up the PartyPoker affiliate team before switching to the B2B sector in 2011, where she managed the launch of Danske Spil. In 2015 she moved to New Jersey to manage Borgata Casino and monitor potential regulations in other US states, before moving to Malta in 2016 to work with NetEnt, and finally back to London in 2018 to take the helm as CEO of NetGaming.The expansion of regulated markets on both sides of the Atlantic means operators within the gaming industry have more opportunities than ever to offer their services legally.In the last 12 months a number of new licensed regimes have been introduced, with Sweden and US states such as Pennsylvania among the most prominent. Land-based casinos, customer-facing igaming operators and content and technology suppliers large and small have eagerly filed their applications as they search for new revenue streams.Regulators draft the regulations to ensure critical factors like player protection, responsible gambling and AML issues are addressed. Licensees have a complex job on their hands as they seek to implement rules and conditions set by regulators. After a thorough review of licensee’s systems, policies and procedures the relevant licence is awarded to those who operate a compliant and responsible business. Regulators must also simplify the process as much as possible to attract applications and thus maximise channelisation. Challenging processThe licensing application process can be challenging, especially for smaller operators who do not have entire departments and significant funds at their disposal to retain the services of legal specialists in multiple jurisdictions.It is paramount that business operations are not overtaken by licensing requirements. Companies cannot put their future at risk by syphoning off too many resources to focus on licence applications.One company that has recently faced such challenges is NetGaming, the online casino content developer that has applied for licences in both Malta and the UK in the last couple of months. Pallavi Deshmukh, the supplier’s chief executive, states that planning has been crucial in keeping the overall focus on NetGaming’s core products.“Throughout the licencing process we were conscious of our game development cycle,” she said. “We ensured that our priorities were managed efficiently and ongoing parallel workstreams didn’t have an adverse impact on our daily operations.“Each team was assigned specific tasks which supported us in our licence application process. It helped to have a clear list of requirements from both the regulators.“Once the extensive requirements were deconstructed and we had sought expert advice and guidance, there was no further ambiguity. We had a clear understanding and we focused on submitting the licence applications.”While the process in Malta and the UK has been challenging, NetGaming is already looking at further market entries for 2020. Denmark, Italy and Sweden are the three main jurisdictions being considered, although Deshmukh conceded: “If the market conditions change and other regions need to be prioritised, we will revisit the list of jurisdictions.” ComplianceWith regulated markets accounting for over 50% of revenue in Europe, Deshmukh said investment in regulatory and compliance activities is essential for any reputable company that has a long-term vision in mind“It is key to invest in regulatory and compliance activities to expand our market reach and longevity,” she said.“There are two key benefits of this approach as I see it. It helps us meet operators’ requirement of engaging with content suppliers who have a wide range of regulated market offering. It also puts players’ minds at ease as they can enjoy a superior gaming experience without having any security and regulatory concerns. Ultimately, our strategy is to proactively safeguard our customers and players.”After completing the application process in Malta and the UK, Deshmukh said NetGaming has gained a wealth of knowledge and understanding on this subject.“I would say being resilient pays,” she added. “On a more practical note, with licence applications, you are never over-prepared. Approaching the licence application process with a thorough understanding of key aspects of the business helps.” Complete understandingAfter the application experiences, NetGaming has found that the person spearheading the process must have a complete understanding of technical, compliance and commercial aspects of the business. This helps in consolidating the required documentation and brings about a much-needed flow to the full suite of submission, especially when making concurrent applications.“In hindsight, there aren’t a lot of things that I feel we could have done differently,” she said. “I feel our approach was the right one and we managed the processes efficiently.“We should have aligned the company structure in line with the regulatory requirements from the very start. This could have saved us some time, but you live and learn!”NetGaming is supportive of licensing regimes in their overarching focus of ensuring player protection. There is wide divergence from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, with some requiring that only B2C operators require a permit and some necessitate a full B2B suppliers’ licence.While operators and suppliers would benefit from the synergies that can be drawn from multiple jurisdictions when applying for multi-jurisdictional licences, Deshmukh is not convinced of the merits of Multi-Jurisdictional Business Form (MJBF), an idea introduced by the International Association of Gaming Regulators.“It sounds intriguing however it hasn’t been hugely popular amongst remote gambling operators and suppliers,” she said. “This is because only a small number of regulators have so far committed to adoption of the MJBF.“The regulators who have committed require additional jurisdictional rider forms to be submitted. If more regulators adopt it, a significant amount of duplication and administrative overheads will be reduced on licence applicants who plan to apply in multiple jurisdictions.”The licence application processes have enabled NetGaming to gain valuable experience in a significantly important aspect of the ever-evolving online gaming business.“We are just getting started, we are embracing anything that will make us a better content supplier to players and business partner to our customers. NetGaming has a ton of excitement and fun in store in 2020 and beyond!” Legal & compliance Topics: Legal & compliance A successful application 24th October 2019 | By Josephine Watson AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter We ask NetGaming’s chief executive about the challenges of being a start-up in a highly regulated marketplace Email Address Subscribe to the iGaming newsletterlast_img read more

Concrete measures must be taken to guarantee journalists’ safety.”Qadri told Reporters Without Borders he was interviewing a small group of student protesters outside a government building when a policeman hit him in the face.

Virtual tutors join the army

first_imgNew staff at British Army’s Land Command are being assigned an onlinevirtual tutor to help with IT training. Users can interact with a humaninstructor in live sessions accessed via an intranet connection and a standardbrowser. The training, for both basic and tailored IT applications, is aimed at LandCommand staff based in remote locations and unable to attend classroom sessionsduring the induction period. The £250,000 project is being delivered by the solutions and trainingdivisions of Parity. The company is providing the content, LMS andimplementation. Heather Moore, managing director at Parity solutions division, said:”The focus on the project is on user experience. Our investigations forthis particular project revealed that users did not interact well with basic,text-based computer-based training (CBT). “With our training division, we created virtual tutors to give thelearning process personality and provide a more interactive environment. Thisis a resource they can go back to and use to refresh their skills – something aclassroom environment alone cannot easily provide.” Lt Col Barry Keegan, ICS programme manager at HQ Land Command, said:”Our people are distributed across the country and all over the globe. ITtraining may not be our top priority, but it is still important our users areable to interact with our IT systems.” The on-line tutor is scheduled to go live this summer.

Court ruling puts an end to psychic management

first_img Previous Article Next Article Stress has been a nightmare for employers. The number of stress claims madeby employees has spiralled, with new TUC research suggesting there has been a12-fold increase. The six-figure payouts attached to many successful claimshave made it a very painful phenomenon. Until now, the onus has been on the employer to ascertain whether employeesare stressed. But there have been serious difficulties – how do you spotstress? After all, one person’s stress might be another person’s motivation. Many in HR will be breathing a sigh of relief after the Court of Appealruling last week that overturned three damages awards in work-related stressclaims. It has set out guidelines that could reverse this growing trend. The ruling means employers no longer have to be psychic. Employees will needto raise their concerns regarding stress with employers and give them a chanceto do something about it. If staff do not give the employer this opportunitythey will find it hard to prove a breach of care. From now on, employers can assume that the employee can withstand the normalpressures of a job. These guidelines will go a long way in helping HR identify staff who aregenuinely suffering from stress and those jumping on the compensationbandwagon. But there is still a lot of work to be done, with another piece of newresearch claiming that nine out of 10 staff are suffering a degree ofwork-related stress. HR has to ensure procedures are in place to tackle stress, includingeffective communication and counselling services. Staff have to feel confidentthey can approach HR or their line manager about stress without it affectingtheir standing. And line managers must not be allowed to avoid good andsensitive management by hiding behind the excuse that staff did not tell themthey had a problem.
