Proposed taxes in draft Portuguese online gambling law unworkable

casinoWhilst the Remote Gambling Association welcomes the initiative of the Portuguese government in deciding to regulate the Portuguese online gambling market, the proposed punitive taxes on stakes of 8-16% for online sports betting in the present draft law will render the market unviable for the vast majority of online operators who might otherwise decide to apply for licences and invest in Portugal.

The proposed law on online gambling is presently in the process of going through the Portuguese parliamentary process. Such punitive levels of taxation will severely limit competition in the Portuguese sports betting market to the detriment of Portuguese consumers and the tax revenues that the Portuguese state could take were the market to be taxed at a sensible rate of gross gaming revenue.

Businesses in the 'Heart of Lagos' work together

Heart of LagosThe Heart of Lagos is a project initiated by Eddy Strayton, the owner and founder of Fools and Horses, one of the oldest bars in the centre of Lagos, Eddy says “that many of the bars and restaurants had been overlooked by tourists ever since the main street April 25th was pedestrianised. The effect of this was to open up more bars and restaurants to draw people away from the real centre of the city”.

The project was to created to produce a tourist map, similar in some respects to the many others produced, in essence, for the tourist community. However, The Heart of Lagos map differs because it focuses only on the centre of Lagos and the many quality bars, shops and restaurants that are overlooked in that area.
