Italian demonstrations by representatives of the gambling industry

The workers of the legal gaming companies will demonstrate on February 18, simultaneously in Milan – Piazza del Duomo and in Rome – Piazza del Popolo, to attract the interest of institutions and public opinion on the serious difficulty of over 150,000 workers (for a total of about 400 thousand people) affected by the prolonged suspension of activities in the public gaming sector and by the absolute uncertainty about the date of reopening.

The gravity of the situation led for the first time to a public protest by workers from all over the sector, who will demonstrate united under the banner of “Legal Gaming Workers,” to ask loudly the immediate reopening of activities in the regions in the Yellow zone, in compliance with the strict anti-Covid protocols already adopted for over 6 months, as well as the convening of a discussion table between Government, Regions and trade associations, to find a fair solution to the various problems affecting the sector, including the territorial issue and access to credit.

THE NUMBERS OF THE CLOSURE – Also considering the first lockdown, the inactivity has been going on for 7 months now, over 210 days of closure and the situation has led to a loss of tax revenue of over €4,5 billion, in addition to marking a sad record at the European level.

THE PARTICIPANTS – 170 companies, public businesses, bingo halls, betting halls, video lottery halls and equipment managers have already joined the event promoted by a group of companies temporarily united for the occasion under the name Ati Gioco Lecito and supported by the main trade associations (Acadi, Anib, Astro, Confederazione Giocare Italia, EGP-Fipe, Federbingo, Fiegl Confesercenti, Sapar, SGI).
