The Executive Order on Online Bingo was finalized on December 15th.
Compared to the version that was sent out for consultation, the following easing of restrictions have been made:
- The demand for a 10 second pause when a winning occurs has been removed
- The demand that bingo cards cannot be bought earlier than 10 minutes before the start of the game has been extended to 30 minutes before the start of the game
- The allowed formats on the bingo cards have been extended by 4 by 4 cards – of 80 numbers/symbols
Furtheron, it has been clarified that the rule against players choosing numbers/symbols on their cards does not imply that players cannot choose between cards.
