Swedish gambling survey reveals falling participation rate

first_imgCasino & games The percentage of Sweden’s population that gambles has fallen by 10% over the past five years, according to the annual market survey conducted on behalf of the country’s gambling regulator Spelinspektionen.The survey, carried out ahead of iGaming regulations coming into force by polling company Novus in October 2018, revealed that 66% of the 1,582 people polled claimed to have gambled at least once in the past year.This was unchanged from the 2017 results, though was down 10% from the 76% participation rate revealed by the 2013 edition of the survey. The majority (55%) of players gambled at least once a month, down from 61% in 2013, though up two percentage points from the 2017 survey.Weekly participation rates fell to 34%, with this group primarily male, and aged between 50 to 64 years old.The survey also revealed that younger Swedish gamblers tended to play as a form of entertainment, with 61% of all respondents saying they wagered for fun. This group was comprised primarily of those aged between 18 and 29 years old (73%), with the possibility of winning – or winning large sums – being a preoccupation of older men.With 32% citing the chance to win as a key motivation behind their gambling, 82% of this group was aged 50 and above. This was comprised of 41% aged between 50 and 64 years old, and 41% aged 65 and above. For 31%, the chance to win large sums was a key motivation, with 41% of all men saying such opportunities were key.Security was also a major concern among players, with 40% saying that playing in a safe and secure environment was the import important element in deciding where to play. This was more important than entertainment to players, with 37% saying a fun experience was most important to them. It could be argued that this is reflected in the fact that six in ten (60%) online gamblers tended to play with Svenska Spel, which until January 1, 2019 was the only legal online offering. The second most popular site was former horse race betting monopoly AB Trav Och Galopp, through which 15% of respondents gambled. While lotteries are the most popular form of gambling overall, sports betting proved to be the most popular online product.Players were also shown to be careful to use safeguards, with almost six in 10 (59%) setting a budget before gambling online, though just 17% set time limits. However there was little uptake in self-exclusion controls, with 3% saying they had self excluded, and a majority (55%) saying they were unaware of such a service.Despite this, Sweden appears to be controlling problem gambling, with just 3% believing they gambled too much, unchanged in the past five years of the survey. However 7% believed that one of their close relatives was gambling too much. There were also signs that players don’t believe they are being kept safe, with just 12% agreeing that the gambling market was safe for customers. Those that did not gamble, meanwhile, said that this was primarily due to the fact they never win, and had never won, according to 32% of respondents. A further 22% said they did not believe gambling was a safe activity. The percentage of Sweden’s population that gambles has fallen by 10% over the past five years, according to the annual market survey conducted on behalf of the country’s gambling regulator Spelinspektionen, the last investigation into the market carried out before new iGaming regulations came into force on January 1, 2019.

SportCaller to revamp Tote’s Ten to Follow

first_img Topics: Sports betting Tech & innovation Horse racing Horse racing Tags: Race Track and Racino UK pool betting operator the Tote has expanded its portfolio ahead of its relaunch by resurrecting one of its most popular games through a new partnership with free-to-play content specialist SportCaller. 22nd November 2019 | By contenteditor Subscribe to the iGaming newslettercenter_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter SportCaller to revamp Tote’s Ten to Follow UK pool betting operator the Tote has expanded its portfolio ahead of its relaunch by resurrecting one of its most popular games through a new partnership with free-to-play content specialist SportCaller.The £250,000+ Tote Ten to Follow will offer racing fans a fantasy sports-style game designed to maximise the user experience and engage players throughout the course of the National Hunt season.The Tote said the game, which is based on one of its most popular offerings in the past, will be a key component in its future plans as it rolls out fresh branding and a new website.The announcement comes just weeks after UK Tote Group, the consortium of racecourse owners formerly known as Alizeti, completed its acquisition of the iconic UK pool betting operator from Betfred.Jamie Hart, product director at the UK Tote Group, said: “The popularity of the Tote Ten to Follow was an important chapter in the Tote’s history which is why we were so keen to bring it back. However, we wanted to do this in a modern digital format which would appeal to racing’s loyal fanbase, while also attracting new players to the game to follow the action throughout the National Hunt season.“SportCaller’s proven success in the emerging free-to-play vertical, coupled to their longstanding passion for racing, made them the only viable partner for this relaunch. Their flexibility and speed of integration did not disappoint. It’s a partnership which we’ll continue to grow while we continue our plans to rejuvenate the Tote.”Tote Ten to Follow is a competition which asks players to assemble a single stable of 10 horses, or build a collection of permed stables. Each player receives one free entry into a smaller jackpot pool, whilst entries into the mega jackpot game will cost £5 per stable.Added functionality features a suite of intuitive tools which permit players to opt in to be notified as to where and when each of their selections is racing, alongside a comprehensive history of results from races in which their horses ran and any points accrued for every race.SportCaller originated the first FTP horse racing jackpot game with Sky Bet and Channel 4 Racing in 2014 and has since gone on to develop games servicing football, golf, UFC and US sports.SportCaller managing director Cillian Barry said: “It’s exciting to rekindle our first love on the Tote Ten to Follow to deliver the next generation in horse racing FTP.“It’s a genuine honour for the Tote to have entrusted us with one of the jewels in their racing crown, and we’ve done our utmost to upgrade this timeless classic for contemporary audiences. We can’t wait to see players’ reactions as we continue to drive retention across all operator platforms, boosting the UX on a sport whose powers of retention and customer fidelity surpass most others.”The reintroduction of Tote Ten to Follow was announced in October when the new owners outlined a strategy to both modernise and revitalise the 90-year old British institution.As well as launching a new Tote website, the UK Tote Group team said it has opened talks over extending partnerships to sell Tote products through retail and digital outlets, as well as with overseas pool betting operators.

Carol singers collect via contactless card

The London Community Gospel Choir serenaded shoppers in London’s Covent Garden on Wednesday and collected for charity using cashless cards only. While the choir performed, people were able simply to hold their contactless cards over the charity collection bucket that had been equipped with contactless technology in order to make their donation.The donations were made using pre-paid cards provided for the purpose by Barclays and Barclaycard, so in practice the donations came from the Barclaycard. Each donation of £5 made from the cards through the payment system on the contactless collection bucket was donated to Help a Capital Child, and £2,500 was raised.Contactless cards enable people to make purchases of £15 or less, without the need to enter a PIN or their card into a payment terminal. Once the card has been held over the contactless terminal, the transaction uses a secure network to add automatically the purchase to the customer’s credit card bill or debit it from their current account.Richard Armstrong, Head of UK Payment Acceptance at Barclaycard, said: “At this time of the year, shoppers are often caught short of change when they hear Christmas carollers singing on the high street for charity. We introduced the UK’s first contactless carol singers at London’s Covent Garden to make it easier and quicker for people to make donations on the go.”Barclays says that there are over 15.3 million contactless Barclays debit and Barclaycard credit cards in circulation in the UK.Although the donation was made digitally the charity does not receive contact details of the donor.www.Barclays.co.uk/contactless Howard Lake | 9 December 2011 | News  95 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis17 Carol singers collect via contactless cardlast_img read more

NI charity legislation moves forward

first_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis The long awaited charity legislation for Northern Ireland has taken a step forward with the introduction of the Charities Bill into the local Assembly which will amend the provisions of the Charities Act (Northern Ireland) 2008.The introduction of the Bill is the first step in rectifying the legislative issue that has prevented the new Charity Commission putting together a public register of charities, a key part of the new of legislation.Following the summer recess, the legislative process will continue and the Bill should be passed by the Assembly in the autumn of 2012. Once this happens the Charity Commission must consult on our public benefit ./guidance. This should happen late in 2013.The Charity Commission plan to commence registration in the autumn of 2013 if the legislative timetable goes to plan. However the registration process will take a considerable time given that there are up to an estimated 12,000 charities in Northern Ireland.It was originally planned that charity registration would begin at the end of June 2010. Howeve,r as a result of the public consultation and legal advice on the robustness of the definition of a charity, the Charity Commission referred the legislation back to the Department for Social Development in June 2010.www.charitycommissionni.org.uk Tagged with: Ireland Law / policy Northern Ireland  35 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis NI charity legislation moves forward About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Imperialist intervention further destabilizes South Sudan, Central African Republic

first_imgRepublic of Sudan President Omar Hassan al-Bashir flew to the capital of the Republic of South Sudan on Jan. 6 in an effort to assist the Juba government in mending a split that is tearing the newly created country asunder. South Sudan broke away from its northern counterpart nearly three years ago, largely at the aegis of the U.S., after a national referendum on the future of what was then Africa’s largest geographic nation-state.Since the partition of the vast country, which is rich in oil and other natural resources, both South Sudan and Sudan in the north have suffered from economic instability and ongoing clashes between various contending political forces. President Bashir’s visit is taking place as talks continue in neighboring Ethiopia aimed at reaching a ceasefire between soldiers loyal to South Sudan President Salva Kiir and ousted South Sudan Vice President Riek Machar.On Dec. 15, clashes erupted in the capital of Juba after attempts were made to disarm sections of the presidential guard. President Kiir accused his former deputy of attempting to stage a military coup, while Machar vehemently denied these allegations.The Machar faction is claiming that Kiir was acting in a dictatorial manner by suppressing dissent within the ruling Sudan People’s Liberation Movement/Army. Eleven high-ranking officials within the SPLM/A and the government, who are aligned with Machar, have been arrested by the Kiir forces.Machar is currently in hiding and has pledged to declare a ceasefire in the conflict only after Kiir agrees to release political prisoners. Fighting has escalated in at least four areas of the country, including Upper Nile, Unity and Jonglei as well as in and around Juba in the Central Equatoria state.Claims and counter-claims of atrocities and the seizure of territory have taken place since late December. Although President Kiir’s government has stated that it has retaken control of the capitals of Bor in Jonglei state and Bentiu in Unity state, contrary reports indicate that fighting is fierce in all these areas and an attempt to enter Juba by the Machar forces was made on Jan. 4.In the talks in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, no real progress has been made as of Jan. 6. According to mediators in the Ethiopian capital, which houses the headquarters of the continental African Union (AU), representatives of the two sides have held meetings, but there has been no agreement to declare a joint cessation of hostilities.A leading general in the government who is allied with President Kiir was killed in an ambush on Jan. 4 in Jonglei state, outside of Bor. Other high-level military officials have broken with Kiir and are fighting with the political faction supporting Machar.Both sides are heavily armed and possess conventional military hardware, including armored tanks and other sophisticated weapons. The conflict has taken on an ethnic dimension, since President Kiir is a Dinka and Machar comes from the Nuer group. There have been reports of civilian casualties, and hundreds of thousands of people have fled the contested areas in fear of reprisals from the belligerent forces.Central African Republic crisis reveals failure of French imperialismFrance has dispatched 1,600 troops to the Central African Republic under the guise of stabilizing the situation inside the large country, which has a relatively small population of less than 5 million. Demonstrations against both France and allied Chadian soldiers, numbering at least 800, are a reflection of the confusion they are creating in an already tense situation.The CAR is a former French colony, as is Chad. There are many Chadian citizens in the CAR, many of whom have fled the country amid the growing conflict.Other foreign nationals have also left the CAR, including people from Nigeria, who are being airlifted out by their West African government. France has called for additional United Nations troops, since it is proving incapable of handling the current situation. The imperialist power is also facing growing opposition within its own country in response to the intervention.These developments indicate clearly that the presence of these imperialist military troops, along with U.N. forces that often operate in league with the Western states, cannot bring peace and stability to Africa. The AU is proving incapable of mobilizing its own respective military units in a manner in which they can act independently of the imperialists.Consequently, hostility toward military forces from other African states is escalating, since they tend to act at the behest of the former colonial and existing neocolonial powers. The United States and France both have economic interests in various African states, including South Sudan and the CAR, in regard to oil, diamonds, uranium and other strategic minerals.An article published by the South China Morning Post points out, “The United Nations has dispatched a record number of peacekeepers to Africa in recent years, deploying soldiers to trouble spots such as the Central African Republic and South Sudan. Yet the ‘blue helmets’ and thousands of other soldiers sent by African regional groups have failed to prevent fresh violence. “(Jan. 6)The report stresses that “the peacekeeping forces have cost billions of dollars, largely paid by the United States and European nations. But they have been hobbled by weak mandates and a shortage of manpower and equipment. Some critics also say Washington, its allies and UN officials are at fault in the peacekeeping failures, for not following through with enough political pressure to prevent crises.”Yet the political mandate of the U.S. and France is related to the seizure and control of strategic resources as well as preventing further economic independence in Africa. The imperialist states want to secure these resources in order to stifle the burgeoning relations between AU member states and the People’s Republic of China as well as other Asian, African and Latin American states.As a whole, Africa must break with the imperialist states in order to foster real stability and economic development. The creation of an effective African Standby Force, called for by the AU since 2002, must be a priority for the continental governments and mass organizations.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

NYU professor focused on aggression law speaks on campus

first_img Previous articleTCU Alert sounds after 4 a.m.; students not pleasedNext articleAll hail Texas weather Yvonne Umugwaneza RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Yvonne Umugwanezahttps://www.tcu360.com/author/yvonne-umugwaneza/ Facebook Jose Antonio Vargas, undocumented immigrant, to talk diversity and immigration Linkedin printA measure that would make it illegal under the United Nations charter for one country to invade another could reduce global conflicts, according to an expert on the proposed change.“Aggressive war,” is an act that is not defensive, consensual, humanitarian or authorized by the UN Security Council, said Jennifer Trahan, clinical associate professor at New York University and the advisor to the UN on matters of genocide.Trahan, who spoke at TCU on Wednesday, said she has been working on a definition of “crime of aggression” for 15 years.Defining criminal laws is something done in the best way possible in hopes that it will have an impact on the world, she said.Following World War II, the Balkan states, including Yugoslavia, Moldova, Bulgaria, Romania and Albania, fell to communists. Communist ideology led to discussions of a wider Balkan federation.Yugoslavia was previously made up of seven states, including Bosnia, Herzegovina, Croatia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro and Serbia.Erin Lovall, the co-director of the documentary “Seeking Truth in Balkans,” said she was inspired by the testimonies and experiences from former Yugoslavians and Rwandans.“I was such a believer in international justice,” Lovall said. “But I felt like there has been a very long time that nothing was being done, while many leaders in different categories are doing horrendous atrocities and [getting] away with it.”The documentary focused on the Balkans’ ethnic war experience and the aftermath of the war. Many interviewees said it is hard to have reconciliation without justice, and there will be no justice without truth.The law of crime of aggression stipulates that invading another country would be criminal.“When you define something, you do it as best as you can because you don’t know how strong it will change the world for better,” Trahan said.World War II is an example of aggressive war, in which the Nazis occupied a great deal of Europe and persecuted innocent people at Nuremberg; the aggressive law was only used at Nuremberg.Although there are various international criminal tribunals and some have done a better job than others, Trahan said none is enough because crimes are so huge. The goal is not to create more tribunals; it is to try to change behavior eventually and to stop the crimes, Trahan said.

Volleyball dominates Kansas on Julia Adams’ career day

first_imgLinkedin Alexandra Preusserhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/alexandra-preusser/ Director of baseball operations shares her journey into sports ReddIt Facebook printFirst-year Julia Adams (12) exploded for a career-high 23 kills against Kansas. Photo courtesy of GoFrogs.comTCU volleyball beat Kansas in four sets on Saturday behind one of their best offensive performances of the season. The win marks their third conference win this year. TCU had 64 kills with a .293 hitting percentage, their highest tally of the season against a conference opponent. First-year outside hitter Julia Adams set career highs with 23 kills on a .500 hitting clip. After the match, Adams said that her confidence comes from teammate Ashley Waggle, who provided Adams with feedback to help produce more offensively. “Waggle has been an unbelievable mentor to me,” Adams said. “She’s experienced this for three more years than I have, and so having her set the standard for me and giving me the confidence to go out there. I can’t thank her enough.” Head coach Jill Kramer said Adams continued to work hard in practice and has stepped up to the challenge. The fifth-year coach thought her team defended and transitioned well, and that the key to this game was the confidence and edge her team played with. “Our conference is tough. Our league is tough. And you got to fight really hard for every single win,” Kramer said. “You want to win on the road, but you really want to protect your home court. You really want to do your best for the people that come out to support you.”Even though their team has been struggling this season, TCU fans still showed up to support. It was the 10th largest crowd in program history with an attendance of 2,020. Saturday’s crowd, an attendance of 2,020, was the 10th-largest in program history. Up next, TCU will travel to Morgantown to play the West Virginia Mountaineers at 5 p.m. on Wednesday. Then, TCU will finish the week in Austin against the No. 1 Texas Longhorns.
