Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Portugal’s regulated online gambling market achieved a new record quarterly revenue of €47.3m (£42.4m/$53.4m) during the first three months of the year, primarily due to year-on-year growth across sports betting and casino.The figure, the highest quarterly total since the country launched its regulated market in May 2016, according to official figures released by national regulator Serviço Regulação e Inspeção de Jogos do Turismo de Portugal (SRIJ). It represents a 43.8% increase on the first quarter of 2018.The Q1 total is also more than half of the igaming revenue Portugal generated in the whole of last year (€78.9m).Sports betting was the main source of income for the market’s ten igaming licensees, accounting for €24.8m of the total, up 42.5% on Q1 last year.Portuguese punters wagered a total of €131.3m on sports during the quarter, with football responsible for 72.7% of all sports bets. Basketball followed with an 11.5% share of the sports betting market, then tennis on 10.1% and ice hockey with 3%.In terms of customer spending, online casino was some way ahead, as punters wagered a total of €608.6m in the quarter. Operators generated €22.6m in revenue, up 45.9% year-on-year.Slots were the most popular form of casino gambling in Q1, with a market share of 63%. French roulette ranked second with 14.8%, with blackjack on 7.8%.However, it was more bad news for the poker market, which saw revenue drop for the third consecutive quarter. Cash games and tournaments had a combined market share of 13.9% for the online casino sector.Meanwhile, SRIJ has also noted an increase in new sign-ups for the quarter, with a total of 125,200 consumers registering for online gaming accounts, up from 89,500 in the same period last year. This can be partly attributed to the fact there were three more licensed operators in Portugal than in Q1 of 2018.By the end of the quarter, a total of 35,400 players had opted to self-exclude from online gambling activities, up from 21,100 in the corresponding period last year.SRIJ also continued with its efforts to clamp down on unlicensed gambling in the country, issuing 49 notices for operators without a permit to cease activities and submitted 30 requests to internet service providers to block websites.In terms of land-based gaming for the quarter, revenue slipped 2% year-on-year to €75.1m, primarily due to a decline in table games revenue.Table games generated €11.6m in revenue, down 11% from €13.1m in Q1 of last year, with baccarat struggling in particular. Slots revenue remained relatively level at €62.5m, but combined poker and bingo revenue slipped 3% to €925,160. 4th July 2019 | By contenteditor Email Address Topics: Casino & games Finance Sports betting Poker Portugal sets new igaming revenue record in Q1 Regions: Europe Western Europe Portugal Tags: Card Rooms and Poker Online Gambling Casino & gameslast_img read more

Apollo bids for Tabcorp’s wagering and gaming businesses

first_imgIn March, Tabcorp announced that it was to carry out a strategic review of its business, with the possibility of selling its wagering and media division. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Apollo bids for Tabcorp’s wagering and gaming businesses 6th May 2021 | By Robert Fletcher Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter It has also put forward an alternative proposal, to acquire only the wagering and media business only for $3.50bn. Both offers will now be assessed by the Australian operator’s board. The proposal remains subject to a number of conditions including due diligence, financing, regulatory approval and consent from all relevant third parties. That transaction also saw real estate investment trust VICI Properties acquire Las Vegas Sands’ real estate in a $4.00bn deal, as the operator withdrew from the US market. Also in November, Apollo brokered a deal to invest €500m in Sazka Group and KKCG, the investment body behind the pan-European lottery and gaming giant, and also agreed to acquire land-based operator Great Canadian Gaming Corporation for over CAD$3.3bn. Entain then put forward a revised AU$3.50bn bid for the wagering and media business, which it said was “compelling both in terms of the value it represents for Tabcorp shareholders in cash, and certainty of deliverability”. The strategic review will look at the possibility of divesting the business to third party. It will also consider a potential de-merger of either the wagering and media segment, or the lotteries and keno division. Tags: Tabcorp Apollo Global Management Apollo has been increasingly active in the gambling sector in recent months, having first lodged a bid to acquire William Hill in September last year. Apollo eventually lost out to Caesars Entertainment and withdrew from the race in November.  Private equity giant Apollo Global Management has submitted a revised proposal worth AU$4.00bn (£2.23bn/€2.57bn/US$3.10bn) to acquire Tabcorp’s wagering and media business and gaming services segment. Just before the turn of the year, Apollo then struck a deal to purchase International Game Technology’s Italian B2C gaming machine, sports betting and online gaming businesses for €950m, via its Gamenet Group subsidiary. Most notably, in March it acquired the subsidiaries that operate casino giant Las Vegas Sands’ US properties for US1.05bn in cash and $1.20bn in seller financing, through a loan credit and security agreement. Email Address At the time, Tabcorp said that no firm bids had been made, nor was there any certainty that any transaction would take place. Topics: M&A The review followed an announcement in February that it had received a number of “unsolicited approaches and proposals” to acquire its wagering and media arm, with Entain among those confirmed to have put forward an offer. When the review was announced, Tabcorp said the initial proposals put forward by interested parties valued the wagering and media arm at approximately $3.00bn, which its board said did not adequately value the segment.

Five things we learnt in rugby – December

first_img Saints smashed: Quins’ Dave Ward leaves the Northampton defence trailing. Photo: Getty Images TAGS: Northampton Saints Two No 2s: Jamie George and Dylan Hartley in England training. Photo: Getty ImagesJamie George is by some distance the best hooker in English rugby, with a consistency of performance that is now impossible to ignore, while Luke Cowan-Dickie not far behind.Jones doesn’t shy away from making horribly blunt team selections and substitutions, just ask fellow Northampton Saint Teimana Harrison, but equally he will not be pressurised into any decision that isn’t purely his. The Hartley issue seems like the latter and isn’t likely to change any time soon. I would have found it easier to explain why a man, led by eight land-based mammals, was able to circumnavigate the world in 24 hours in the air than why Elliot Dee was cited for his ‘push’ on Andrew Brace in the Dragons‘ game against Cardiff Blues. It was quite farcical.Forward march: Elliot Dee on the charge for the Dragons. Photo: Getty ImagesWe all understand that there should be zero contact on the referee, but if a referee gets his positioning so wrong that he finds himself standing in such a narrow channel, then some of the responsibility to avoid contact is surely also his?Players already have enough to worry about with 19st monsters flying down their channel, without having to fret over accidentally nudging a 12st bloke off his feet. It was a silly episode more suited to the panto season, not the rugby season. “Heeeeee’s beeeeeeehind you, ref!”FOR THE LATEST SUBSCRIPTION OFFERS, CLICK HEREJordan Larmour goes full 1990sIf you haven’t seen Jordan Larmour’s try against Munster then I suggest you watch it below. It was glorious. A genuine throwback to the 1990s and the age of Christian Cullen. No spreadsheet rugby, no protein shake required and no bench-press record, just a 20-year-old stepping his guts out like he was trying to outrun an overzealous citing officer (see above). Three glorious steps, two off the left foot, one off the right, and six defenders left wondering what was happening.It also begs the question why we only really see plays like this from young, inexperienced players? It is very rare that you see a seasoned northern hemisphere international even try to break from their own half. Is it over-coaching? A fear of losing the ball having been drilled into them as they move up through the ranks? Either way I want to see more of Jordan Larmour. Hat tip.Eddie Jones has a decision to make at hookerIt is very difficult to criticise Eddie Jones. Why would you want to? His turn around of the England squad has been nothing short of seismic. However, one question remains unasked even though everyone is thinking it. Dylan Hartley is probably even asking it. Why is Dylan Hartley being picked as the starting hooker for England? LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Paul Williams takes a look at the goings-on in the game at the end of 2017 Northampton continue to slideOrdinarily, Leicester Tigers’ sixth defeat in a row would grab the headlines were it not that 37 miles down the road Northampton Saints continue with a bizarre run of form. It’s a run of games that move beyond defeats and lie firmly in the ‘absolutely pasted’ category.Saints, as a collective, haven’t had it this bad since Pope Paul VI removed 93 of them from the Catholic calendar in 1969. Many of them were removed on the basis that their achievements/miracles were based on myth, not fact, which draws a rather neat parallel with Northampton’s defensive completion of late.Against Harlequins, Saints finished the game with a completion of just 63%. After 40 minutes, the percentage was as low as 56%, which meant that they were nearly missing every other tackle. Add to that sizeable defeats by a struggling Ospreys team and the severity of the situation becomes even clearer.The reality is that if London Irish weren’t having such a disappointing season, Saints would be facing a relegation battle. Alan Gaffney has some major New Year’s Resolutions to sort out.France hire a French coach – againThere was one final turkey killed off in December – France’s experiment with Guy Noves at the helm. It would be unfair to blame Noves for everything that is wrong with French rugby. It was broken before he arrived and will be broken for some time to come. The Top 14 simply isn’t set up with any sympathy for Test rugby and the national team’s performances prove that.However, what is perhaps even stranger than Noves’s appointment in the first place is that the FFR have once again opted for an ‘older’ French coach in Jacques Brunel. It’s an approach French rugby doesn’t adopt when it comes to recruiting players for their league and picking residency-qualified players in their Test team.Head man: Jacques Brunel is the new France coach. Photo: Getty ImagesThe Top 14 is propped up by Pacific Islanders and big name SANZAAR player, yet there is a reluctance to adopt that recruitment policy when it comes to head coaches for the national team. The FFR could afford to hire anyone they like, yet they chose once again to look inwards. The mess doesn’t end there either. The FFR are pursuing Noves and his staff for misconduct in the hope that they don’t have to pay out the full contracts. Still, at least the Top 14 is going well, which is all French rugby seems to care about.Elliot Dee citing was embarrassinglast_img read more

The Inside rooms are also connected to each other to create an interior space to read as one large volume. By utilizing multiple floor levels and manipulating the flow of walking paths throughout the house, a hierarchy has been created that allows for the large volume to have a distinct character in different areas, which we think is very important for a home.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe garage is located directly adjacent to the courtyard with big sliding doors. When the cars are out of the space, this garage can be transformed into an extension of the courtyard.

We believe utilizing new shapes and forms while cladding them with traditional materials is a fresh and suitable idea for the client who is building a new family in an area where she shares great history. This strategy to manage the old and the new honors both of the periods and brings them together in a successful way that we believe to be harmonious for this project and this family.Save this picture!© Daisuke NakamuraProject gallerySee allShow lessDAf Offices / Albert TidySelected ProjectsFriedrich Bayer Bridge / LoebCapote Arquitetura e UrbanismoSelected Projects Share Photographslast_img read more

Charity Commission uncovers nationwide scam against hospices

first_img Howard Lake | 15 October 2002 | News Charity Commission uncovers nationwide scam against hospices Tagged with: Charity Commission Law / policy About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur. Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. Editor’s note (8 August 2011): we have been asked to point out that the company mentioned in this article is entirely unrelated to the registered charity of the same name Hospice Aid UK.The Charity Commission has published the results of its inquiry into an unscrupulous fundraising company which has targeted hospices around the country. Southampton-based Hospice Aid UK was set up to sell various products in order to raise money to buy equipment for UK hospices.Following a complaint from a Jarrow hospice that the company had been fundraising on their behalf without their prior knowledge, the Commission launched a full inquiry last November. It found that Hospice Aid UK had supplied false evidence to the Commission, claiming that funds had been used to make donations to several UK hospice foundations.As a result of the Commission inquiry Hospice Aid UK has ceased fundraising and evidence has been passed on to the police. Steve Grenfell, Head of Investigations at the Commission’s Taunton office, said: “These individuals have tried to cash in on the high level of public support for the vital work that hospices undertake. We would advise hospice managers to thoroughly vet all individuals and companies offering to fundraise on their behalf and to listen out for reports of those fundraising without permission.”  40 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThislast_img read more
