The government set itself the task of crafting a whole new set of rules and regulations that would provide the gaming industry with the platform it requires to respond to today’s realities and future developments. The new Gaming Act entered into force in August 2018 and has radically transformed the way the sector is regulated. The new law simplifies and streamlines processes, avoids duplication and speeds up time to market for operators. One of the major changes was the introduction of just two licence categories: a Business-to-Business and a Business-to-Consumer licence. A new set of licence fees and compliance contributions has also been introduced, while licences are now valid for 10 years instead of a 5-year period.
