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.

Last 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. Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Regions: Sweden
The Department began drafting rules in April and has until 14 June to publish a first draft of these regulations before they are made available for public comment during a seven-day period ending 21 June. Regions: Arizona Arizona eyes 9 September start date for sports betting 3rd June 2021 | By Robert Fletcher Subject to the formation of rules and regulations for sports betting in Arizona, the state’s Department of Gaming is aiming to open the regulated market on 9 September this year. The US Department of Interior (DoI) last week gave its approval to a bill that formalised an amended compact that set out measures allowing players to bet on sports at tribal casinos and sites owned by major league sports teams in Arizona. The Arizona Department of Gaming has set a provisional launch date of 9 September for legal sports betting in the US state, following the passage of a new tribal-state gaming compact.

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.
