H2 Nordic Dashboard: Region to become €4bn market by 2023

first_img Regions: Europe Nordics Denmark Finland Norway Sweden Topics: Casino & games Finance Legal & compliance Lottery Sports betting Strategy Horse racing Tags: Mobile Online Gambling OTB and Betting Shops Race Track and Racino Casino & games The Nordic dashboard, in partnership with H2 Gambling Capital, suggests that the region will grow to a €4.46bn market by 2023, boosted by the introduction of igaming regulation in Sweden. 4th March 2019 | By contenteditor H2 Nordic Dashboard: Region to become €4bn market by 2023 The Nordic dashboard, in partnership with principal data partner H2 Gambling Capital, suggests that the region will grow to a €4.46bn market by 2023, boosted by the introduction of igaming regulation in Sweden.This growth will be underpinned by regulation, with H2 projecting that the share of gross win derived from licensed offerings will rise to 80.5% of gross win from 61.5% within five years, driven by channelisation and growth in the market. Indeed, growth between 2013 – a year after Denmark regulated – and 2018, then projections for 2018 to 2023 suggest that regulation is in fact a key driver of igaming growth.This will be achieved despite markets such as Norway and Finland showing no signs of shifting away from protectionist monopoly models. In each country, this has led to the development of successful offshore markets, despite increasing efforts to crack down on unlicensed activity in each country.For 2018, Nordic igaming gross win was €3.49bn, up 10.1% year-on-year. Sweden, which opened its regulated igaming market on January 1, 2019, led the way in the past year, accounting for 34% of gross win in the region for 2018. It was followed by Finland with a 25% share, with Denmark accounting for a further 20%.Sweden saw unlicensed activity continuing to grow in 2018, according to figures released by the country’s gambling regulator Spelinspektionen, and Finland’s Veikkaus cited unregulated growth as a factor in its decline for the year. However H2 suggests that Nordic players tend to gamble via regulated offerings, with licensed sites accounting for 61.5% of gross win, up 0.8 percentage points from 2017.Looking at the product mix for the past year, sports betting was by far the most popular vertical. Betting generated 40% of total Nordic igaming win in 2018, with casino coming in second with a 28% share. State lotteries, which have seen market share eroded as players shift to other verticals, accounted for 19% of the total.However the Nordic region does appear to be a little behind other regulated markets in terms of mobile uptake. In 2018 the channel accounted for 44.5% of igaming gross win, at a time when mobile has become the preferred way to gamble in other territories. Mobile is expected to grow consistently, H2 says, becoming the dominant channel in 2020, with its share of revenue increasing to 59.6% by 2023.This slow uptake may be down to the fact that aside from Sweden, igaming lags behind land-based gaming in the region. In Finland, for example, igaming accounted for 43.1% of total market revenue in 2018, and 43.8% in Iceland. Both Denmark (49.6%) and Norway (49.2%) have seen igaming grow in prominence, but both still lag behind Sweden, where online accounts for 51.9% of gambling revenue. Across the region, igaming accounts for 48.3% of revenue, which is expected to grow to 56.5% by 2023.H2 Gambling Capital is the gambling industry’s leading consulting, market intelligence and data team. The company has a track record of 18 years focused on the global gambling industry, its projections have been influential in shaping legislators’  and investors’ views of the gambling sector across the globe.

Fugitive Indian liquor baron Vijay Mallya wanted to meet the Indian cricket team in England.

The man whose brand “united the player divided by (the IPL) teams” in the ooh… laa..laaa.. la.. le… ooo…. commercial has close ties with cricketers. He has been the owner of Virat Kohli’s Indian Premier League abode for all the 11 seasons – Royal Challengers Bangalore – and enjoyed close ties with the Team India skipper. It was Mallya and his IPL team that had handpicked Kohli for the inaugural season of the Indian Premier League.

The future is bright for Al Kellock and Glasgow

first_imgThe Dude: Al KellockWhat is it with Glasgow? Can there be a more erratic side in European rugby? Two years ago they were the team with the Killer Bs back row, the swashbuckling Warriors from the Mean City who finished third in the Magners League. Then, unaccountably, last season they turned into paper tigers, ending up second bottom, below perennial strugglers Treviso and Connacht, with just six wins out of 22. This year coach Sean Lineen’s men are cramming the good, bad and ugly into one season. The bad was meek losses away to Ulster and home to Munster in the first two matches of the season, results which put Lineen under yet more pressure. The fleeting glimpse of ugly was the home loss to Treviso, the Italian side’s first RaboDirect Pro12 win on the road. But mostly, bafflingly, it’s been good, which is why they’re in the top half of the league table and still in contention to qualify for the Heineken Cup knockout stages for the first time in the club’s history. There have been superb league wins at Leinster, Cardiff Blues and Aironi, and equally impressive home wins over the Dragons and Ospreys. Mainly, though, there was that dramatic Heineken Cup victory over Sir Ian McGeechan’s Bath in a match that the Scots were never supposed to win. They did it ugly, too, playing within themselves but winning with a flourish as talisman Richie Gray touched down as the game reached a fiery crescendo.“That game epitomised everything about this club, about the spirit we have, about the way we keep coming back,” says skipper Al Kellock. “There’s a belief here and a work ethic that stands us in good stead. We didn’t play well against Bath, we didn’t exert the control we’d wanted and we gave them the ball more often than I care to remember, but it was sheer determination and a fantastic scrambling defence that saw us through.”Looking from the outside, it’s difficult to understand why Glasgow’s form veers so wildly from one extreme to the other, but to Kellock the cause is pretty clear. It comes down to cash. The club’s inability to pay the going rate means that as soon as a player impresses, he’s whisked away to England or France. Glasgow are, in the football parlance, a selling club. Kelly Brown, the Lamont brothers, Euan Murray, Dan Parks, Jason White and most recently Max Evans and Richie Vernon have all left Firhill for pastures new. The decision of the fans’ favourite Gray to leave for Sale in May is simply the latest in a long line of cherries that have been picked.“No one has higher expectations than the players themselves,” says Kellock. “But with hindsight the truth is that maybe more was expected of us last season than we could deliver. Some key senior players had left, we had four or five of the Scotland players out with long-term injuries, while John Barclay and Richie Gray were given the back end of the season off in the run-up to the World Cup.“That’s more than half of the first team gone, and that included Dan Parks (who moved to Cardiff). When you change your stand-off – especially if you change from a kicker ten like Dan to a player like Ruaridh (Jackson), who likes to run with the ball – the whole way the team is structured has to change. So last season was, in many ways, a transitional year, but it was also one where a lot of the young guys got blooded and we’re seeing the benefits of that this year.”It is those players who have reinvigorated the Warriors, not the old guard, edging Leinster in Dublin and sticking it to the Blues in Cardiff while the World Cup players were away. Up front, 21-year-old flanker and stand-in skipper Rob Harley was the pick of the bunch, but locks Nick Campbell, 21, and Tom Ryder, 25, plus prop Jon Welsh, 25, and No 8 Ryan Wilson, 21, also stepped up to the mark. In the backs 20-year-old stand-off Duncan Weir has put himself in contention for a Scotland start and full-back Stuart Hogg, 19, has been a revelation.“We’re erratic because we’re always at a different place on what can be a very steep learning curve,” says Kellock. “Right now we’re in a good place, with the young guys buying into that work ethic and absorbing the little things that make the difference between success and failure. We’ve absorbed the pain and now we’re looking ahead because we may have lost Richie, but I came back from New Zealand to find that we now have three genuine options at stand-off. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS “Longer-term, things are looking up. We’ve got a new CEO (at Murrayfield) who is talking about putting more resources into the pro teams, and we’ll be moving to a new stadium at Scotstoun, which is a fantastic facility. But more than that, we’ve now got a bunch of guys who know this is a fantastic place to live and play rugby, a city with a really rich rugby heritage. That’s why I believe in this team, why I recently signed a three-year contract, and that’s why we’re now becoming more and more difficult to beat.”This article appeared in the January 2012 issue of Rugby World Magazine.

History of Rugby World Cup Sevens – Part 2

first_imgWednesday Mar 25, 2009 History of Rugby World Cup Sevens – Part 2 Last week we featured the first part of the very interesting History of the Rugby World Cup Sevens video. This week were featuring part 2 in this fascinating insight into how the game of Sevens developed into what it is today.We see how in 1976 a group of businessmen looked to put a rugby tournament together in Hong Kong. From the humble beginnings of a simple idea, the Hong Kong Sevens grew into a world renown party event, with some amazing matches having taken place there over the years.Twenty of so years ago, the game of rugby was very different to how it is today. The demands on the players in terms of their schedule was less, so the top players in the world game could compete at the Sevens tournaments.David Campese was one who thrived in the openness of the shortened version of the game, and then came along a young Fijian whose name will forever by synonymous with Sevens.Waisele Serevi hit the Sevens stage with bang on the nineties. His balanced stepping, incredible handling, and raw confidence made him one of the most exciting rugby players to grace the game.He played his part in the classic Tomasi Cama try of the 1990 final, and only recently retired from the game having led his country so proudly for many years.In 1993 we saw the inaugural Rugby World Cup Sevens, as the game returned to its roots in Scotland, with Edinburgh being the host city. England and Australia met in a gripping final in which the English came out tops 21-17, becoming the first team to lift the Melrose Cup.There were some brilliant tries scored, most notably from flyer Andrew Harriman as he rounded David Campese on the outside. Campo got his own back though, scoring a classy chip and chase try in the second half.Well feature Part 3 of this excellent series on here soon. :: Related Posts :: History of Rugby World Cup Sevens – Part 1 Time: 06:51 Note: The video ends abruptly for some reason unfortunately.

Hondurans, Guatemalans protest capitalist corruption

first_imgProtest in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, on May 29.Thousands of demonstrators in Honduras and Guatemala are protesting their respective governments over corruption scandals involving the misappropriation of public funds.Both waves of protests, which began several weeks ago, are demanding the immediate resignation of right-wing presidents Juan Orlando Hernández of Honduras and Otto Pérez Molina of Guatemala. The Central American heads of state have been linked to bribery rings involving their respective country’s social security programs and private corporations, among other acts of ­corruption.Although each of these uprisings has its own unique form, due to differences in the political actors involved, they are similar in content. The political actors exist within the same economic environment. Ultimately, the ongoing protests in Honduras and Guatemala are national struggles against political corruption, a phenomenon inherent in the global economic system of capitalism.Scandals exposedProtests in Honduras began in early June when the political news channel Globo TV revealed that corporations linked to an embezzlement scandal involving the Honduran Social Security Institute (IHSS) provided funds for Hernández’s National Party during his 2013 presidential campaign.Private medical companies like Dimesa, based in the Honduran capital of Tegucigalpa, helped finance Hernández’s campaign using profits made from backroom deals with IHSS officials. Dimesa has held a contract with the IHSS since 2011. Social security officials knowingly approved the purchase of overpriced medical equipment and low-quality medicines in exchange for bribes.Approximately $330 million were stolen from the IHSS, significant portions of which were siphoned into Hernández’s National Party campaign, Al Jazeera reported in a June 1 article. Additionally, thousands of Hondurans have died and are still dying as a result of the extraction of IHSS funds originally intended for medicine and equipment.Protests in Guatemala were ignited by two major scandals. The first involved a multimillion-dollar customs fraud exposed by a United Nations report released in April. Guatemalan government officials were reported to have been accepting bribes in exchange for lower customs duties for private corporations. The second involved Guatemalan Social Security Institute (IGSS) officials who signed a $15 million contract for dialysis with a company that has no experience, the June 12 New York Times reported.Social security officials in Guatemala, just like their counterparts in Honduras, are reported to have received millions of dollars in kickbacks. Protesters consider Molina involved in both acts of ­malfeasance.Honduran prosecutors investigating the scandal have since meted out minor forms of justice. From the National Party, former IHSS director Mario Zelaya, Dimesa investor Shukri Kafie and National Congress Vice President Lena Gutiérrez have all been charged with corruption and public health crimes. National Congress President Mauricio Oliva, also a member of the National Party, is currently being investigated for his involvement.Guatemalan prosecutors have done the same. Former Vice President Roxana Baldetti stepped down from her position in May at the request of the Attorney General’s office, following accusations of her involvement in the customs bribery scandal. Her former secretary, Juan Carlos Monzón Rojas, who ran the operation, has been formally charged and has been given fugitive status. Several other government officials have also been arrested in connection to the IGSS case.Despite these meager concessions, the masses are continuing to rise up. Thousands of protesters in Honduras and Guatemala have taken to the streets daily to demand that their respective country’s president step down. Solidarity protests have also been organized in several other countries, including Mexico, the United States and Canada. Demonstrators are continuing to organize larger actions by the day as neither Hernández nor Molina have announced plans to resign.Overall, the mass uprisings in Honduras and Guatemala must be understood as being similar in content. Although the corruption scandals that sparked the anti-government mobilizations involved different political figures and institutions, they both took place in countries deeply entrenched in the global economic system of capitalism. The expansion of profits for private interests is as central to capitalism as it is to the corruption scandals in Honduras and Guatemala.Both Central American nations are under the control of right-wing political parties working in favor of the global ruling economic class, which seeks the expansion of profits at the expense of millions of people. The everyday super-exploitation of workers and farmers leads inevitably to corruption and bribes. It all boils down to profit.Just as corruption in Honduras and Guatemala should be understood as being integral to the global economic system of capitalism, the anti-corruption protests must also be understood as necessary mass reactions.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Proveer agua para migrantes y aliados es un crimen para EE.UU.

first_imgTrump no solo continúa llevando a cabo una vil diatriba antiinmigrante casi a diario, sino que los agentes del Servicio de Inmigración y Control de Aduanas llevaron a cabo recientemente un siniestro ataque SWAT en Arizona. Y en la ciudad de Nueva York, los agentes de ICE están arrestando a inmigrantes haciéndose pasar por policías de Nueva York.La patrulla fronteriza realiza una redada de estilo militar en el campo No Más Muertes, 31 de julio de 2020.Morir de sed es aceptable en los EE.UU.El 5 de octubre, la Patrulla Fronteriza de Estados Unidos allanó el campo No Más Muertes en Arizona, cerca de la frontera entre Estados Unidos y México. Esta organización humanitaria, un grupo vital de personas heroicas que salvan vidas, informó desde el campamento que los agentes de ICE capturaron a 12 inmigrantes y detuvieron a siete voluntarios.No Más Muertes caracterizó los arrestos y detenciones como “un patrón de criminalización”.Esta fue la segunda incursión en el campamento del grupo desde este verano. Según el Washington Post, No Más Muertes “es un grupo religioso formado en 2004 en respuesta a una gran cantidad de migrantes que estaban muriendo mientras intentaban cruzar el brutal desierto de Sonora”. (6 de octubre)Un comunicado de prensa de No Más Muertes decía: “Después del atardecer del 5 de octubre, entró la Patrulla Fronteriza de los Estados Unidos. . .  a Byrd Camp con una orden federal. Los voluntarios estuvieron retenidos durante tres horas mientras las personas que recibían atención médica, alimentos, agua y refugio del calor de más de 100 grados fueron detenidas.”Según la organización, la invasión estatal fue “una demostración masiva de fuerza armada” ya que la BORTAC (Unidad Táctica de la Patrulla Fronteriza) “descendió al campamento con un tanque blindado, un helicóptero y muchos vehículos marcados y sin marcas. Agentes armados con rifles de asalto persiguieron y aterrorizaron a quienes estaban recibiendo atención”. Además, rompieron puertas y ventanas y destruyeron la infraestructura y los suministros esenciales.El comunicado de prensa continuó: “Esta criminalización de la ayuda humanitaria y la atención médica que brindamos es solo un avance de las políticas mortíferas de la agencia. La Patrulla Fronteriza detiene a personas en instalaciones inseguras y mortales donde la negligencia médica es desenfrenada y los abusos a los derechos humanos están bien documentados”.Para enviar mensajes de solidaridad o una donación monetaria muy necesaria, visite: nomoredeaths.orgICE y policía, uno y el mismoLos neoyorquinos tienen todas las razones para sentirse intimidados y recelosos de la policía de Nueva York, después del infame debacle de “parar y registrar” que tuvo como objetivo las comunidades negras y morenas y el trágico asesinato en 2014 de Eric Garner, cuyo grito “no puedo respirar” generó protestas masivas.Entonces, cuando la policía llega a la puerta buscando a alguien y los policías resultan ser agentes de ICE, puede estar seguro de que la comunidad resistirá.Es por eso que los defensores y los funcionarios de la ciudad se reunieron con las familias de inmigrantes el 10 de octubre para denunciar los informes de “prácticas engañosas de los oficiales de ICE para detener y deportar a las personas”.Según el concejal de la ciudad Ydanis Rodríguez, uno de los organizadores del mitin, la comunidad pedía la liberación de Fernando Santos-Martínez, secuestrado por agentes de ICE que afirmaban ser agentes de la policía de Nueva York del Precinto 34.Según Rodríguez, ICE se presentó de civil en el apartamento de la familia y repetidamente intentó entrar mientras se identificaba como policía. Sin dejar que la resistencia de la familia los detuviera, los agentes de ICE intentaron intimidar al superintendente del edificio para que consiguiera que la esposa de Santos-Martínez, María, abriera la puerta.Los agentes de ICE dijeron que necesitaban hablar con Santos-Martínez “sobre un incidente anterior”, por lo que el cónyuge “sin saberlo les dio su número de teléfono”, dijo Rodríguez.Según los informes, el alcalde de Nueva York, Bill de Blasio, dijo el viernes que el había “pedido a ICE que ordenara a sus agentes que no declararan o insinuaran que representan a la policía de Nueva York”.Pero tanto la policía de Nueva York como la de ICE son agentes deshonestos que protegen a un estado capitalista. Y harán lo que quieran y pondrán en acción sus creencias supremacistas blancas, no lo que ordene de Blasio. La policía y ICE han demostrado una y otra vez que están políticamente alineados con las viles políticas racistas de la administración Trump. De hecho, la policía de Nueva York, a través de su unidad de propaganda de la “Asociación Benevolente de Policía”, salió en agosto por primera vez en un histórico respaldo a Trump para otro mandato como presidente.Mientras ICE evita que los migrantes obtengan agua en el desierto con tanques blindados, y mientras la policía y el ICE unen fuerzas cada vez más, ya es hora de que el movimiento elimine a la policía y al ICE de una vez por todas.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Under normal circumstances, students would be preparing to study abroad. However, the unpredictability of entry and exit requirements for foreign countries made it unfeasible amid the pandemic, according to an email sent to students Wednesday from Sheila Williams on behalf of the Center for International Studies. “Country-specific entry and exit requirements have been unpredictable,” said Dr. Sandra Callaghan, the Director of the Center for International Studies. “We believe that suspending programs is in the best interest of our students both for health and safety reasons but also to allow our students to have certainty as they plan for the spring semester.” TCU offers over 250 programs in 54 countries around the world, giving students a vast selection of unique international opportunities. The decision to suspend study abroad activities came based on advice from TCU’s security analysis team at On Call International. The information and guidelines provided by organizations such as the WHO, the CDC, the U.S. State Department and the Overseas Security Advisory Council were factored in. While there is hope that TCU will be able to begin offering abroad programs for the summer 2021 semester, leaders of the abroad program suggest it is a cautious optimism. Students who were planning on being able to study abroad were saddened by the change of plans.Junior finance major Freddie Gibbs had planned on studying abroad in the spring semester before the announcement was made. “I was planning on studying in Europe for my spring semester and the news is definitely disappointing,” said Gibbs. “Hopefully, they can organize a plan to make sure it is an option after next May.”Callaghan said scholarships will still be available for future study abroad opportunities. “TCU has a long history of strong financial support for Study Abroad,” Callaghan szid. “TCU will continue to support both need-based and non-need-based study abroad scholarships. More details will be available as we develop a unique portfolio for Maymester and Summer.”Students can stay up to date for more details on scholarship opportunities by checking the Center for International Studies website beginning in late October.
