Players will have to say their spending top before each online session

Players who want to play online will have to define certain parameters about how the game is going to be, according to the real decree project for safer game environments that the executive will approve. Thus players must set the maximum time they are willing to play and the maximum amount they are determined to spend, as EFE has advanced.

That is the proposal that is reflected in the last draft of the Royal Decree of the General Directorate of the Game, framed in the Ministry of Alberto Garzón, whose responsible now analyzes the Thirty Arguments that have finished receiving this month in the Public Hearing Procedure .

The project will then be sent to the European Commission to also make its contributions and return to the Council of State, which, according to sources of the management of the game, the Royal Decree could be approved at the end of this year or early 2022.

From that moment, and if Article 12 of the Royal Decree remains, the people who participate in any of the "Online" games included within the license of "Other Games", that is Bingo, Roulette, Black Jack, Point and Banking and random machines will have to make a pre-configuration of the session.

The session will end when the money was finished or when I finish the time you want to play. "What first occurs", specify the aforementioned sources, who remember, that the player can later start another.

What is intended is that the player does not lose control of his own decisions for 'the desire to win'; That he stops, that the adrenaline goes down and that he thinks again if he wants to play again and have to define the limits of a new session.

In any case, the player can not be spent beyond the limits established in the law, that is 600 euros per day or 1,500 a week.

These limits serve those responsible for drafting the Royal Decree to distinguish between several types of "online" players, including "intensive": Those who have surpassed 50% of the daily deposit limit, that is, 300 euros, or that of Weekly (750 euros) for three consecutive days or weeks, depending on the case.

Young people would become "intensive" if they have spent 25% of the limits set or, which is the same, 150 euros for two days in a row, or 375 euros for two weeks.

Experts consider that if those amounts are exceeded, a "messy game" can occur, something that can only be performed at some point a very small percentage of active players, around 15%.

More than 85% of the active players (in total in Spain there are 1.5 million) do not reach those quantities, and that is why this is about this rule is to intensify the measures so that your game does not end up deriving in a problematic game

An "Intensive" online player will not be able to pay his sessions with a credit card. It will cease to be a valid means of payment for this type of players, who will have to pay Debit so that they can not borrow or with a purse card.

In short, the measure assumes that in no one can spend more money than they have at that time, since those responsible for the game have detected in recent years a growth of average spending per player: every time they spend more and there is an increase in The accounts of young people, especially between 18 and 19 years old.

The average annual spending per player was in 2016 of 312 euros and in 2020 of 533 euros, a fork that has been progressively increasing in four years.

Therefore, more prevention mechanisms for all players are established in the draft Real Decree and especially for young people, to which operators may not include in their privileged customer programs or VIP, where more special attention is received.

Nor can you offer you gifts or considerations and will receive messages, if you are "intensive", alerting this condition.
