Two more Swiss casinos secure online gaming licences

first_img Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Casino & games 20th November 2019 | By contenteditor Two more Swiss casinos secure online gaming licences AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Swiss gambling regulator the Eidgenössische Spielbankenkommission (ESBK) has granted online gambling licences to two land-based casinos in Bern and Interloken.Grand Casino Kursaal Bern and Casino Interloken will both be permitted to run online casino games alongside their existing land-based offering.The ESBK will analyse each of the casino’s igaming offering and individual games before they are given the green light to launch online.The Bern and Interloken casinos join Grand Casino Baden, Casino Davos, Grand Casino Luzern and Casino Zürichsee in securing online gaming licences. Grand Casino Baden was the first to launch its offering in July.The new licences have been made possible under legislation that came into effect in January, whereby the ESBK can issue permits to land-based casinos across the country, while foreign operators are blocked.Last month, Swiss gambling regulator the Inter-Cantonal Lotteries and Betting Commission (Comlot) updated its blacklist of unlicensed gaming operators, with bet365’s dot.it site among the latest additions.A total of 17 websites have been added to the blacklist, which was first published in September following implementation of the country’s Federal Act on Real-Money Gaming (Geldspielgesetz).It was also revealed last month that the average number of people frequently gambling in Switzerland fell again in 2017, with research commissioned by Comlot and ESBK showing just 16.4% of respondents gambled at least once a month.

ATG hits back in fresh row over Swedish racing levy

first_imgLast October, Swedish online operator association Branschföreningen för Onlinespel (BOS) welcomed Sörenson’s recommendation against a statutory betting levy for horse racing. “I do not dare to think about what 38,000 people who have their income from the horse racing industry think when they read the investigator’s conclusion.” Horse racing BOS secretary general Gustaf Hoffstedt, who held a seat in the Gambling Market Enquiry’s expert group, said Sörenson made the right decision. ATG hits back in fresh row over Swedish racing levy AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Maria Guggenberger, head of corporate social responsibility at the former racing monopoly, which channels its profits to the racing industry, hit back at claims made recently by Anna-Lena Sörenson, head of the Swedish Gambling Market Inquiry, on a webinar hosted by the Swedish Gambling Association (SPER). 3rd February 2021 | By Richard Mulligan ATG has called for a levy ever since the Swedish gambling market was reregulated in January 2019, with the licensing of new competitors meaning the end of its long-standing monopoly on horseracing betting. While ATG has long said it did not mind competition, its complaints that other operators should also contribute towards racing led to the creation of the Swedish Gambling Market Inquiry under Sörenson. Topics: Horse racing Guggenberger said surpluses from ATG have benefited the equestrian industry by up to SEK2bn (€200.0m/$240.0m) annually for the last 50 years, which is almost a half of its turnover. “About half of the money goes to prize money for horse owners and other active people and about a third goes to the tracks to cover competition costs and maintenance,” she said. “The remaining funds finance central operations and the sport’s costs for audio and video production of its competitions.” “I welcome this sensible conclusion from the inquiry,” he said. “On a principal level it regards whether one can own data that is open for everyone, it may be the outcome of a horse race, a presidential election or tomorrow’s weather. The answer to that question must be that there cannot be any ownership to such open and accessible information.” However, Guggenberger argued in response that funding for equestrian sports from ATG is being diminished by the success of its competitors, so “for every market share that ATG may lose to competitors, equestrian sports lose that amount in financing”. Tags: Sweden ATG Racing AB Trav Och Galopp (ATG) has cast doubt on the future of Sweden’s equestrian industry as comments made by the head of the racing levy inquiry once again ignited a long-standing row over funding. Email Address “It is flattering that the investigator has such confidence in ATG’s continued strong financial position, and we naturally hope that she is right in her forecast,” Guggenberger said in a statement issued by ATG. “The problem is that the values​ at stake are far too great to be able to rely on hope. Sweden’s horse racing entrepreneurs are entitled to a more long-term sustainable model than that. In the webinar, Sörenson, who late last year rejected the introduction of a racing levy following her inquiry, reiterated her position that the current model with financing from ATG’s surplus is sustainable. In the webinar, Sörenson, whose interim report is now out for consultation, argued that collecting the levy would cost more than it recoups.

Midweek Madness – Todd Clever flies into George

first_imgWednesday Dec 16, 2009 Midweek Madness – Todd Clever flies into George This year has been pretty serious one in terms of incidents, both off field and on. We don’t need to go through them all, but you’ve read about and seen them right here on RD. With that in mind, what you’re about to see is a breath of fresh air. USA flanker Todd Clever is a busy man. Contracted to the Lions in South Africa, Clever is also the USA Eagles captain, and an integral part of the USA Sevens side for the last few seasons. In the past year he’s played Currie Cup & Super 14 rugby for the Lions, played against the Lions (of the British & Irish variety), played in the Sevens Rugby World Cup, and played in 2011 Rugby World Cup qualifiers. Travelling between Johannesburg and San Diego, Clever leads a hectic, but eventful life. Earlier this month he attended the premiere of Invictus in LA, and was fortunate enough to meet Matt Damon, Morgan Freeman, and the other stars of the movie on the red carpet. Not originally scheduled to play at this years George Sevens, Clever got a last minute phonecall to say that some of their players were injured, and he needed to fly ‘home’ to South Africa earlier than planned. Arrangements were made, and he got on a last minute flight to make it down for the second leg of this season’s IRB World Sevens Series in the Eastern Cape. That brings us to this clip, and a hilarious, but awesome moment as Clever brought his own piece of showmanship to George with an outrageous dive over his teamate and physio on the way to the tryline. It was a classic dive and brilliant piece of entertainment for the crowd, the viewers at home, and now us. The physio might disagree, but she stayed calm and apparently only let out a little scream as he flew over her by a matter of inches. Yes he could easily have run around, and yes if things weren’t timed right, he might have injured a few people in the process. But, in much the same way that he intercepted a pass to start the best try of the 2007 World Cup, everything worked out perfectly.

A look back at some of Jonah Lomu’s Best Tries at the 1995 Rugby World Cup

first_imgTuesday May 12, 2015 A look back at some of Jonah Lomu’s Best Tries at the 1995 Rugby World Cup In 1995 a young man by the name of Jonah Tali Lomu hit the 1995 Rugby World Cup with a bang, and the sport of rugby was never to be the same again. On Tuesday he turned 40, so to honour the great man we’re spending the week looking back at some of his best moments.At 6ft5 and weighing over 118kg’s, then 20-year-old Lomu tore the tournament apart, only to be stopped for the first time in the final, by winners South Africa. Against England in the semi final he scored four tries, one of which was the famous trampling of poor Mike Catt.Will Carling famously said post match: “He is a freak and the sooner he goes away the better”.Lomu didn’t go away though, and went on to have an illustrious career, causing carnage more often than not. Today we wish him a very Happy 40th Birthday, and many more, and trust that you’ll enjoy this look back to where it all began for Lomu and his All Blacks career.BUY the Jonah Lomu ‘Anger Within’ DVD here | Enter to WIN Anger Within ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Great Tries Related Articles 26 WEEKS AGO Incredible athleticism for sensational try… 26 WEEKS AGO ARCHIVE: Suntory score amazing try to upset… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: All 12 tries from EPIC Bristol-Clermont… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

FyF Residence / P-A-T-T-E-R-N-S

first_img 2007 CopyHouses•Rosario, Argentina Text description provided by the architects. FyF is located in the outskirts of Rosario , approximately 300 km north of Buenos Aires. The small house of approximately 200 m2 is built in a new residential development adjacent to a traditional neighborhood. FyF can be described as a spatial and physical attempt to challenge the planar stability and flat homogeneity of the Pampas landscape in a domestic setting. The project was conceived as a monolithic solid, a monochromatic form punctuated only by subtle inflections that establish a complex physical relationship among the different spaces while maintaining a sense of identity and privacy between them.Save this picture!Courtesy of p-a-t-t-e-r-n-sRecommended ProductsSuspension SystemsGustafsSlated Timber Ceiling in EQT Corporate HeadquartersMetallicsTECU®Copper Surface – Classic CoatedMetallicsKriskadecorMetal Fabric – Outdoor CladdingMetallicsStudcoWall Stop Ends – EzyCapSpecifically, a supple cast-on-site reinforced concrete shell constitutes the body of the house. Determined by a structuring geometry governing the shape of the house, problematic transitions are registered into the shell through local folds and bends. Perforations in those transitions produce openings where fenestration is located, allowing for internal conditions of interstitial luminosity, cross-ventilation, and oblique views. Moreover, through shape and disposition, these openings experientially accentuate or play down the effects of the mass, while emphasizing its overall topology. Save this picture!Courtesy of p-a-t-t-e-r-n-sThe residence is organized into a basic disposition of public and private spaces connected by a central corridor and articulated by a small light well. The internal atmosphere of the house offers a contrasting effect between calmness and fluidity. While all rooms are discretely separated, they are also connected by means of strategic openings located right at the transitions, hence adding to the main areas of the house a sense of controlled endlessness. Save this picture!Courtesy of p-a-t-t-e-r-n-sBecause one of the clients is an agricultural engineer and a landscape designer, the project offered the opportunity to incorporate a special activity into the program: a small green house. Instead of isolating it from the rest of the house, we chose to situate the green house in a continuous spatial sequence with interior social spaces, swimming pool and solarium, thus integrating house with garden and exploiting its expressive dynamism. Save this picture!Courtesy of p-a-t-t-e-r-n-sPlaced in close proximity to the main public areas, a pliant pool produces a cascading physical continuum with the body of the house. By torquing the volume and merging it with the ground, the pool complicates the spatial stability of the house and activates a dynamic and oblique sequence of movement and views to the landscape beyond. Tectonically, the projecting roof of the pool area is broken down into small coffer-like compartments that allow glazing facets to be flat, while indexing the complex curvature of the hyperbolic surface.Save this picture!Courtesy of p-a-t-t-e-r-n-sProject gallerySee allShow lessParking in Setif / ZinnekeArticlesRabat Grand Theatre / Zaha HadidArticles Share Architects: P-A-T-T-E-R-N-S Area Area of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeP-A-T-T-E-R-N-SOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRosarioHousesArgentinaPublished on November 23, 2010Cite: “FyF Residence / P-A-T-T-E-R-N-S” 23 Nov 2010.
