GVC furthers Changing for the Bettor with SOGG partnership

first_img The project has been agreed as part of GVC’s wider campaign to make gambling safer, which has already seen the operator pledge to commit 1% of gross gaming revenue to the research, education and treatment of problem gambling by 2022.It has also agreed to invest $5m in a responsible gambling research project, conducted in partnership with Harvard Medical School’s Division on Addiction and partnered EPIC Risk Management to launch a youth outreach programme across the UK.The operator, having prevailed in its calls for a so-called ‘whistle to whistle’ advertising ban around live sports broadcasts, has also called for a blanket prohibition on broadcast advertising. As part of its commitment to ensuring spectators can watch live sport with no inducement to gamble, it will end all shirt sponsorship deals and not allow its brands to appear on pitchside hoardings. “Online gambling became a devastating addiction for me. In many cases, an addict will not know they have a problem until it’s too late,” Bradford said. “Psychologically, it takes you over.“GVC’s commitment to funding pioneering treatment centres and exploring technologies that may stem a problem in the making is good news, and I’m pleased that they have asked SOGG to work alongside them.” GVC Holdings has stepped up its corporate social responsibility campaign Changing for the Better by partnering the Safer Online Gambling Group (SOGG), a body set up by a former gambling addict to raise awareness of gambling-related harm.Through the partnership, GVC will provide SOGG with funding to develop tailored digital therapy tools for those showing signs of problem gambling.“We believe that it is vital to increase collaboration between operators, regulators and independent treatment providers and are very pleased to be able to partner with SOGG and support their development of digital therapy tools to treat problem gambling behaviour,” GVC director of responsible gambling Grainne Hurst said.SOGG, a non-profit body, was set up by former gambling addict David Bradford and his son Adam earlier this year. Bradford suffered from gambling addiction for more than 30 years, ultimately going to prison for stealing £50,000 from his employers to fund his habit and racking up more than £500,000 in debt.It was established to provide a platform to facilitate communication and action between the industry, families affected by gambling and policymakers. SOGG has already garnered support from the Conservative and Labour Parties, and is currently exploring ways to collaborate on effective intervention strategies with the UK’s National Health Service.

Danish regulator shuts down 25 illegal gaming sites in 2019

first_img Danish regulator shuts down 25 illegal gaming sites in 2019 Regions: Europe Nordics Denmark AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Tags: Mobile Online Gambling Video Gaming Denmark’s gambling regulator Spillemyndigheden has revealed that access to 25 sites were blocked as part of its efforts to stamp out illegal activity in the country in 2019. Casino & games Denmark’s gambling regulator Spillemyndigheden has revealed that access to 25 sites were blocked as part of its efforts to stamp out illegal activity in the country in 2019.Working in partnership with the Danish Tax Authority, the regulator conducted a search of 502 websites.Ten were found to be operating illegally, prompting Spillemyndigheden to file court petitions to have internet service providers block access to the sites. These cases are all expected to conclude later this year.After expanding the scope of its search for potentially illegal content to include skin betting in 2018, 110 sites were reviewed in 2019, with closer investigations carried out for six. Petitions to have ISPs block access to 15 sites were filed in total.Last year Spillemyndigheden began an education campaign, targeting minors and their parents, to both inform participants on what skin betting was, and why it was illegal. This, the regulator said, had been positively received.For land-based gambling, it noted that under the Gaming Act it does not have any jurisdiction over illegal land-based gambling, though assists the Danish police when and where required. This saw it provide input on 19 cases in which gaming venues offered poker or slot machines without certification.These efforts appear to be having a positive impact on efforts to channel players towards legal gambling offerings. According to research by H2 Gambling Capital, Spillemyndigheden said an estimated 91.54% of gambling spend occurred through legal channels.This marked a significant increase from 72.44% in 2012, the year Denmark’s igaming market opened for business, and is expected to rise to 93.01% in 2020.Looking ahead, the regulator pledged to continue its searches in partnership with the Tax Authority, and aims to significantly increase the number of sites assessed, to determine whether that will lead to more illegal activity being identified.

Along with our clinical investigators, we have built a strong foundation from which we intend to expand CellFX System indications for use, first in aesthetic dermatology and subsequently for other applications over time, as we execute on our stepwise regulatory strategy,” said Darrin Uecker, President and CEO of Pulse Biosciences. “The detailed and thoughtful preparation by our team has enabled the immediate implementation of our Controlled Launch program of the CellFX System integrated with CellFX CloudConnect services. In both the U.S. and in Europe, we now have KOLs performing CellFX procedures.

Annual Fiesta attendance down slightly

first_img Pinterest Facebook Facebook Previous articleSigns show post-high school possibilitiesNext articleBynum School’s 2021 Graduation Ceremony Federico Martinez Twitter Annual Fiesta attendance down slightly Local News Post-COVID attendance for the 25th annual Fiesta West Texas event was down about 20% this year, but organizers say the lower-than-normal turnout had more to do with poor weather conditions than COVID concerns.Approximately 18,000 people attended this year’s 3-day fiesta which was held May 7-10 at Ector County Coliseum, event organizer Richard Esparza. The popular event usually averages about 20,000 per year.“We were down this year but we’re very pleased with the turnout,” Esparza said. “Going into the event we weren’t sure how COVID would affect attendance.“To be honest, I think what affected us more was the weather. We started seeing lightning, the wind picked up and rain clouds moved in Friday evening just when people normally start showing. I think that kept some people away.”Attendance picked up on Saturday and Sunday when sunny skies and warmer temperatures returned, Esparza said.Although Garza did not disclose financial figures, he said this year’s event was still profitable.“We had a lot more vendors than usual,” Esparza said. “A lot of them were from New Mexico and other states where COVID restrictions are still in place and large events are still prohibited.”Vendor Bobbea Vernell Cadena, co-owner of New Mexico-based All Nations Designs & More, said this was his first time in Odessa. Cadena said he is working several Texas events this year because New Mexico still has a ban on large events.“We’ve been working the Texas Hill Country this spring,” he said. “If it goes well in Texas, we may keep coming back.”This year’s fiesta featured a variety of attractions, including Sea Lion shows inside the coliseum, pig races and ongoing traditional Mexican folk dance performances by various dance groups. Music concerts featured performances by several of the hottest Latin music bands, including Siggno and Los Rieleros Del Norte.Esparza said organizers are already working on next year’s fiesta. Next year’s musical headliner is slated to be five-time Grammy Award winning group La Mafia, which plays Tejano and Regional Mexican-style music.
