iGB Diary: Gamesys gains, naughty Neds, RAIG wrangling and futile gestures

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Topics: Casino & games Marketing & affiliates People Sports betting iGB Diary iGB Diary: Gamesys gains, naughty Neds, RAIG wrangling and futile gestures Happy Friday igamers! This week we see echoes of Teddy Sagi in the Gamesys/JPJ deal, consider both sides in the RAIG debate, ponder the wisdom of Neds and Ladbrokes pushing their luck Down Under and are reminded of Animal House by the political wrangling in Louisiana.So good they sold it twice Having sold the Jackpotjoy bingo brands to predecessor Intertain for £425m in 2015 and gotten even richer from holding onto and licensing the platform back to it for the last few years (£83.4m of last year’s revenue of £223.1m came from support services), Noel Hayden and his fellow founders cashed in again this week by selling JPJ this tech and the bulk of its B2C brands. The transaction will also see Gamesys CEO Lee Fenton installed as CEO of the enlarged business. The Diary finds it hard not to be see echoes of Teddy Sagi in Noel Hayden here, with him licensing and selling assets back to a business he essentially founded. The full integration of the Gamesys assets promises to be as transformative for JPJ as deals such as PTTS were for Playtech. By itself, this is a proven and successful tech business, generating an impressive £49m profit from £223.1m revenue last year, and by getting back together with its primary supplier, “JPJ has now positioned itself as a likely winner from this dynamic vs. a likely loser”, gushed an effusive Paul Leyland this week. Gamesys has also retained its non-bingo games development assets and the newly launched Virgin Bet sportsbook. Odds on this being sold to JPJ in a few years time?Now or never Bingo affiliate turned operator Phil Blackwell waded into the debate over new affiliate body RAIG this week, arguing its hefty full membership fee of £20k and being headed by three of the biggest affiliates would hinder its efforts to develop responsibility standards that work for all affiliates. “If the objective of RAIG is to promote the highest standards of compliance and social responsibility, it simply has no option than to make provisions that allow for every affiliate to apply, without exception”, wrote Blackwell this week. In an earlier interview with iGB, Clive Hawkswood emphasised that he would not allow the founding members or any other big affiliates who could afford to stump up £20k to join to translate dominant market positioning into a monopoly on compliance. “It would be completely wrong for a trade association to do anything anti-competitive, not to mention illegal, and everyone is very aware of that”. Hawkswood also justified the £20k fee as necessary to cover the high set-up costs of the organisation (hiring someone with his background understandably doesn’t come cheap) and said they will look at reducing this next year. Time will tell if RAIG can become the vehicle through which, after the many false starts over the years, igaming affiliates, can in Blackwell’s words, “collaborate and unite; not kill each other with friendly fire”.  An important point that Blackwell and Hawkswood do agree on and one that should hopefully provide a platform for the discussions to move forward from here is that there is a growing sense of now or never for the affiliate sector – if they don’t act quickly and self-regulate and be seen to be doing so by regulators and politicians, events will inevitably overtake them like they did with the bookies over FOBTs.Neds still naughty From day one Aussie bookmaker Neds caused controversy with its marketing campaigns, beginning with having two of its launch campaign ads banned in late 2017 and shortly afterwards being fined for illegally offering inducements to NSW players. But many would have thought it would have changed it strategy somewhat after coming into the Ladbrokes fold. Well, it turns out they’d have been wrong. Rather than Ladbrokes rubbing off on Neds, the reverse seems to be happening. Both operators came under fire this week for continuing to offer incentives to punters despite the new National Consumer Protection Framework coming into force late last month, which prohibits such inducements. Evidently, the Northern Territory Racing Commission, which licenses most operators Down Under, said on May 22 it would give operators a one-month period of leniency before taking action on the new rules. Other operators interpreted this to mean they had some breathing room if they made a mistake. It seems Neds/Ladbrokes interpreted it to mean, ‘do exactly what we did before until the last day of that month’. Unsurprisingly, Responsible Wagering Australia – of which Ladbrokes is a member – is rather unimpressed with the operator, with a fellow member telling the ABC it was adopting a “kamikaze approach to government relations”. One has to wonder if all the flack the pair has been getting is really worth it just to offer bonuses for one more month.Strewth! An Aussie game On a related but lighter note, we were amused to receive a release about Realistic Games’ Aussie Adventure game this week. We’re not entirely sure who the game is aimed at with its bouncing kangaroos, shrimps on the barbie and surfing koala on Bondi Beach, but we’ve come up with a few other ideas if the makers, as they stated in the press release, really want players to get a sense of the outback (maybe for version 2). How about Paul Hogan with a knife in Crocodile Dundee? Or a cork hat? The only mention that really conjured up imagery of the outback for us was the “infamous didgeridoos”, but given the sensitivity about indigenous Australian relations it would have been wiser if they’d left out the “infamous” bit. Still, we had to chuckle at the quote provided by Realistic Games’s Robert Lee, who said: “Aussie Adventure is an absolute beaut of a game.”The Big Un-Easy To Louisiana, where the Diary has been avidly tracking the progress of a sports betting bill. Or lack, thereof. The bill, seemingly destined to die in a House Committee, looked to have a chance of resurrection by being tacked onto a fantasy sports bill. The fantasy bill’s sponsor, however, wanted nothing to do with real-money wagering, and a conference committee concurred, rejecting the sports betting amendment. Outraged, the sports bill’s sponsor then talked down the clock to ensure the fantasy legislation could not pass. Under Louisiana law, which only allows tax bills to be debated in odd-numbered years (no idea), the state will be without fantasy sports – and sports betting –  until 2021. Even better, the filibuster was that Senator’s last act in the Louisiana legislature, having come to the end of his term limit. 
It reminds the Diary of that rousing speech from Animal House: “Now, we could fight ’em with conventional weapons. That could take years and cost millions of lives. Oh no. “No, in this case, I think we have to go all out. I think that this situation absolutely requires a really futile and stupid gesture be done on somebody’s part.”That’s it for this week. See you next week! This week we see echoes of Teddy Sagi in the Gamesys/JPJ deal, consider both sides in the RAIG debate, ponder the wisdom of Neds and Ladbrokes pushing their luck Down Under and are reminded of Animal House by the political wrangling in Louisiana Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Casino & games 13th June 2019 | By Joanne Christie Email Addresslast_img read more

GC announces plans to reduce headcount

first_img Email Address GC announces plans to reduce headcount Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter The British Gambling Commission has announced plans to reduce its headcount as part of a broader restructuring effort, but dismissed claims that this would undermine its efforts to raise standards in the industry. 6th April 2020 | By contenteditor AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwittercenter_img The British Gambling Commission has announced plans to reduce its headcount as part of a broader restructuring effort, but dismissed claims that this would undermine its efforts to raise standards in the industry.The regulator has started a process in which employees will be able to take up voluntary redundancy, though has not given any indication as to how many staff would be cut, or if mandatory redundancies would follow.At the end of the Commission’s 2018-2019 fiscal year, on 31 March 2019, it employed 328 permanent staff, plus 14 contractors.Explaining this move, a spokesperson for the regulator said it was continually looking for ways to improve the way it regulates.“The volume and complexity of our work continues to grow and as consumers move online the risks they face shift and we need to respond to that change,” the spokesperson explained. “We need to ensure that we have the capacity and capability to keep pace with emerging issues and risks that regulating a complex and increasingly online industry requires.”This has prompted criticism from groups such as the Gambling Related Harm All Party Parliamentary Group, which has previously claimed the Commission is not fit for purpose.News that it was to reduce its headcount was met with claims that this would further weaken the regulator’s ability to govern the market, especially after the National Audit Office had highlighted weaknesses in its current processes.“The evidence does not support the conclusion that the Commission is too passive in the face of an innovative and fast-moving industry,” the spokesperson said. “We can demonstrate a strong track record of delivering our long-term strategy. “The action taken against the industry in the last week alone, and further ongoing enforcement work to be announced this coming week, flies in the face of those suggestions and demonstrates the real changes we are making to the industry and consumers.”In the past month, the regulator has twice broken the record for the largest settlement agreed for failings by operators. It first levied an £11.6m settlement with Betway, on 12 March, before agreeing a £13.0m settlement with Caesars Entertainment UK.

My decision should not be confused with a finding of fault, but is necessary to allow us to find clarity. We are taking these allegations seriously and there will be a full and fair examination of the concerns that have been raised to be conducted expeditiously by an independent investigator.  To protect the integrity of that process, we will not be able to say more about the concerns at this time.I ask that you pray for all who are involved and who are impacted by this situation.I also ask that we all refrain from speculation, difficult though that may be. We all have a responsibility to protect the integrity of all the human beings involved and also the integrity of a fair and just process in this matter.Bishop Clay Matthews, Director of the Office of Pastoral Development, will be coordinating a team of women and men, lay and ordained, to offer pastoral care for all involved.  Look for additional information about the pastoral support team and how to contact them in due course.  Bishop Matthews is available should any member of staff find a need for immediate pastoral care. He is also available for remote staff.  Contact him at any time at [email protected]  Additionally, I encourage each one of you to do what you need to do to care for yourselves and each other.  Remember the benefits available through the Health Plan’s Employee Assistance Program.On Monday, December 14, I intend to meet with you all by video conference.  Canons Michael Hunn and Chuck Robertson will be present at the Church Center to begin conversations with various departments about their needs and concerns as we move forward in these initial days. Information about the Monday meeting is forthcoming.I want you each to know I trust your faithfulness and integrity as we all work together.  The days ahead will be difficult, but God is good and we will pray and work through this together in the best interest of all involved.Faithfully,Presiding Bishop and Primate Michael Curry Submit an Event Listing December 12, 2015 at 9:18 am Pray without ceasing, giving thanks to God in all things.

This use of force by police-backed thugs in civilian dress must be investigated, RSF says. Journalists in the West Bank are the victims of the divisions within the Palestinian political class, and are constantly exposed to intimidation attempts, including frequent summonses for interrogation by the police.

News In protest against this use of force, the Palestinian Journalists Syndicate has decided to boycott any information provided by the Palestinian Authority and the security forces in the West Bank. It wants those responsible for the violence to be identified and it wants the authorities to explain what happened. The Palestinian Authority has not as yet responded. The Palestinian Territories are ranked 135th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2018 World Press Freedom Index. A video posted by Al Quds TV on Twitter showed an unidentified man in civilian dress trying to grab the phone of a reporter who was filming the thugs in action.

Go and be a journalist at home.” RSF_en Follow the news on Palestine June 3, 2021 Find out more May 28, 2021 Find out more News (c) AFP to go further “Using civilians who are not clearly identified, using thugs to help the police crush media coverage of a demonstration is unacceptable,” RSF said. “We call on the Palestinian Authority to quickly conduct an inquiry into this operation, which was clearly designed to prevent reporters from doing their job.” At least 17 of the journalists covering the protest in Ramallah on the evening of 13 June were roughed up by unidentified plainclothesmen working alongside Palestinian riot police.

Limerick mum shares birth experience

first_imgLinkedin Nicola with her newborn, Isobel (2009) Print A LIMERICK psychotherapist and mother shares her personal experience of a traumatic birth experience and her subsequent healing journey in a new ebook available on Amazon.‘Healing The Pain of A Traumatic Birth Experience’ is written by counsellor and mother of two girls, Nicola Hogg.An experienced psychotherapist in private practice for the past seven years in Ballingarry, she feels that her book is particularly relevant in the context of the fact that Limerick Maternity Hospital now has one of the highest C-section and intervention rates in Ireland.After the arrival of Nicola’s first daughter, Isobel, in 2009 it took her many months to feel like she had worked through her feelings of “loss and trauma” after her difficult birth.“This led me to become interested in other women’s experiences of birth and I discovered that many felt traumatised by their birth experiences but do not speak about it. I believe many women are diagnosed with postnatal depression when in fact the birth experience itself can be the root cause of their intense feelings postnatally”, she said.Over the past number of years, Nicola has found increasing numbers of women coming to her practice with symptoms of post traumatic stress following difficult birth experiences. She said these women’s births would be considered quite ‘routine’ in medical terms but interventions such as episiotomies, induced and prolonged labours and C-sections deeply affect many women.“Counselling can help women to process and then release intense feelings about their birth experiences so that fear of labour/ birth does not become an obstacle in their lives. Talking to an objective and non judgmental counsellor can be a deeply healing experience,” she explained.Nicola felt that there was a need for an accessible book for mothers after difficult births and this led her to write about her own experience as a way of helping other mothers.‘Healing The Pain of A Traumatic Birth Experience’ is available now as an ebook from Amazon.
