US regulators crack down on Slotie metaverse casino

US regulators crack down on Slotie metaverse casino. They allege it lured investors into an illegal gambling operation built in the metaversay. Texas, Kentucky, Alabama, and New Jersey regulators filed actions against Sloties. Slotis sold over 10,000 NFTs to investors in U.S. and beyond. It failed to register them with the SEC and didn't provide them information about the company. The company is based in Georgia and started its operations in October 2021. It touts its NFSs as investors’ ticket into the largest and fastest-growing online casino network on the blockchain.

State Regulators Charge NFT Casino Project With Securities Violations

State Regulators in four states have accused Slotie of selling NFTs that violated securities laws. Sloties operate virtual casinos. The NFSs are unregistered securities issued in violation of state laws and they grant holders ownership in the casinos and a share of their profits. Regulator ordered Slot to stop selling them immediately in all four of the states. The SEC is investigating whether Yuga Labs, the company behind Bored Ape Yacht Club, violated the same laws in promoting and selling the NTSs. It's unclear how this state-level action against an online casino will impact broader conversations about federal- level regulation of NTFs, but it's a good sign for the development of a more transparent system.

Germany: New gambling advertising rules

Dr Joerg Hofmann is a partner at Melchers Law. He follows up his recent GI Huddle appearance with his second Gambling Insider column. The topic of gambling advertising in Germany has received a lot of attention since the introduction of the Interstate Treaty on Gambling. Operators applying for a sports betting licence must include their own marketing concept as part of their licensing procedure. Under current law, the Regional Council in Darmstadt is responsible for reviewing these concepts. However, this has been postponed until the new Joint Gabbling Supervisory Authority of Lander in Halle (Saxony-Anhalt) takes over the task.
