Kazakhstan’S Bookmakers Do Not Support The Draft Law On The Transfer Of Bookmakers In Gaming Zones
During the press conference in almaty, several representatives of the bookmakers raised the question of the draft law, which is designed to introduce innovations in the sphere of gambling.
Sergey kazakov, deputy director of the tennisi bc, expressed disagreement with the intestanition of the authorities to translate bookmakers in gambling zones and reservations in borov and cappchage.
Bookmakers argue that the consequences of the approval of this norm will reduce tax payments to the budget. For example, for the period 2018, the amount of tax payments by bookmakers amounted to 16.5 billion tenge. For 2019, the amount reached 20 billion tenge.
Innovations can lead to the fact that the sports industry will lose financial support. Also, many will lose work – by approximate calculations, this is about 5,000 employees, the dominant number of which – women aged 21 to 30 years. Separately, the bookmakers are not approved by the plan to create a bid accounting center, which will enable the government to follow the players and collect personal information about them.
Director of parimatch bc vladimir kocherga clarifies that the prevailing majority of customers of the bookmakers (98-99%) are not predisposed by the dependence on gambling and make rates for sports as leisure and not for the purpose of regular earnings. In the case of the creation of a bid accounting center, their personal data will also be collected.
According to the site ranking.Kz, this year the size of the services to conclude transactions and the organization of gambling from january to june amounted to 6.3 billion tenge. This is the lowest in the last 7 years. In the regions of kazakhstan, the highest indicator for the field of gambling is recorded in the casino on the banks of the kapshagay reservoir in almaty region. He amounted to 4.7 billion tenge. Next is the akmola region (852.5 million tenge), and the third place occupies the city of almaty (390.8 million tenge).
