first_img Email Address Regions: Europe Southern Europe Italy The poker vertical also recorded marginal growth in cash game revenue (to €6.2m) and tournament rake and fees (to €5.0m), though has now fallen far below the highs recorded in April, at the height of lockdown. For that month, cash game revenue amounted to €20.6m, and tournament rake and fees €11.7m. 22nd September 2020 | By Aaron Noy Topics: Casino & games Finance Legal & compliance Sports betting Online casino Poker All data and figures from the regulator are processed by leading European corporate advisory firm Ficom Leisure, a specialist in all segments of the betting and gaming sector. It also provides quarterly figures on the Spanish online market in the Spain iGaming Dashboard, the Portuguese market in the Portugal iGaming Dashboard, and the Danish market in the Denmark iGaming Dashboard. Ficom Leisure also provides monthly figures on the New Jersey online market in the New Jersey iGaming Dashboard, Pennsylvania in the Pennsylvania iGaming Dashboard, Indiana in the Indiana iGaming Dashboard and Iowa in the Iowa iGaming Dashboard, all of which are available on iGB North America. Italy: iGaming declines as lockdown eases in August After posting its weakest figures since February in July, the online casino vertical saw revenue grow marginally in August, rising 2.0% to €94.8m. However, this still represented a 41.4% year-on-year increase. Italy’s online casino and poker verticals reported marginal month-on-month improvements in revenue in August, though sports betting’s total dropped significantly from July’s strong showing. Finance The biggest month-on-month decline was seen in the sports betting vertical, for which revenue was down 27.2%. This drop came despite the month seeing the conclusion of the Serie A season, and the final stages of the Europa and Champions League – with Internazionale making it to the Europa League final. Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Across the online and retail channels, Snaitech led the way, accounting for 16.5% of all revenue, ahead of second placed Goldbet – the retail market leader – on 14.2%. Eurobet Italia followed in third on 13.1%. As ever, PokerStars leads the way in both formats, accounting for 52.7% of cash game revenue and 47.1% of tournament action, with no other operator even recording double digit market share. iGB apologises for the lack of a dashboard in July, which was due to delays in receiving the data from Italian regulator Agenzia Dogane Monopoli. The figures for that month are included in the infographic below. PokerStars remained the market leader in the vertical by some distance, though its share declined from 13.0% in July to 12.4%. This set it some way ahead of second-placed Sisal, on 8.2%, and Lottomatica, which grew its share to 7.8%, meaning it stayed ahead of Snaitech.last_img read more

Abdirisak Ismail, alias “Darwish”, arrived at the studios on 16 November forced the radio off air and arrested its director. Darwish said he was acting on the direct orders of the president of Puntland, General Adde Muse.The raid was prompted by a report aired on the radio accusing the president of involvement in a secret deal to obtain weapons from abroad to guarantee his safety during forthcoming elections in December, according to Partner organisation of Reporters Without Borders, the National Union of Somali Journalists (NUSOJ). “These allegations are completely false and that is why the radio station has been closed”, a police official told Agence France-Presse on condition of anonymity. “Whatever the objection to Radio Galkayo, it is outrageous that police should raid a radio station and shut it down”, the worldwide press freedom organisation said. “Keeping its director in custody without telling him what he is accused of is absurd and unjust. Behaviour like this only reveals the weakness of the authorities and makes them enemies”, Reporters Without Borders added. News Receive email alerts January 8, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

Pay freeze at Qinetiq riles union as plc racks up £127m profit

By

first_img Previous Article Next Article Qinetiq has defended its decision to implement a sweeping pay freeze this year, despite making a £127m profit in 2008.The Public and Commercial Services Union (PCS) is up in arms about the defence technology company’s decision. The union has claimed the firm is using the recession as an excuse to cut costs, despite the group’s underlying operating profits having shot up by £21m from 2007 to 2008.But a spokesman for Qinetiq insisted the company was operating in an unprecedented economic slowdown and has had to take action.He told Personnel Today: “The economic environment is very different now to the way it has been over the past few years. It is naive to think that you can continue with generous annual pay rounds when the economic conditions have shifted markedly.“Like many other companies we are looking at the way we operate. We are entirely upfront about the fact that this is to do with our costs going forward.”Qinetiq has attracted controversy since it was privatised in 2003, after chief executive John Chisholm saw his personal investment of £10,000 increase to £26m on flotation of the company three years later.Mark Serwotka, PCS general secretary, said: “The announcement will do nothing for the morale of staff who have seen senior executives make millions out of the controversial privatisation of Qinetiq.”The Qinetiq spokesman said there would be no redundancies at the firm this year. In November 2007, 300 people were made redundant because of restructuring following the privatisation of the firm.He said: “We’ve not announced another redundancy round and there are no plans I am aware of for redundancy at this stage.” Related posts:No related photos.

Damen to develop prototype survey boat for Dutch Navy

By

first_img Authorities navaltoday The Netherlands’ Defense Material Organization (DMO) procurement agency has awarded Dutch shipbuilder Damen Shipyards Den Helder (DSDH) a contract to design, build and deliver a prototype expeditionary survey boat (ESB) for the Royal Netherlands Navy.The ESB is to be optimized for rapid environmental assessments and hydrographic surveys in harbors, river mouths, shallow waters, coastal areas and shipping channels.The craft is also expected to be capable of being transported in davits on board large logistics support vessels such as the JSS Karel Doorman and the LPD Johan de Witt, as well as other suitable vessels of the Royal Dutch Navy.As a result of this requirement, the boat must be limited in size, profile and weight. It will need to carry a full suite of hydrographic equipment and incorporate both hardened weapons positions and ballistic protection around the wheelhouse, engine room and the gun positions at a maximum length of 15.7 meters and an overall weight of 24 tons.The craft will be manned by four persons; two to crew the boat and two technicians to operate the hydrographic equipment, and will be able to spend up over 60 hours continuously at sea at her survey speed of 5 knots.“We are very pleased to have won this specialist project,” says Jelle Loosman, managing director of DSDH. “We have eighteen months in which to build and deliver this vessel. It will be a small but complex project and we hope it will be a valuable addition to the Royal Dutch Navy.”The ESB will replace smaller vessels of approximately 10 meters that are currently used for hydrographic surveys but which are not specifically designed for survey work.

Attorney General Curtis Hill: W-2 Phishing Scams Not Exclusive To Businesses

By

first_img INDIANAPOLIS – In the wake of a W-2 phishing scam that successfully targeted two Indianapolis businesses, Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill is warning Hoosiers that school districts, hospitals and nonprofits – and even small business owners – are also at risk of falling victim to the fraudulent scheme.In just the last two weeks, scammers successfully compromised two Indianapolis businesses with a Form W-2 phishing scam – often referred to as the business email spoofing (BES) or business email compromise (BEC) scam. These cybercriminals, or scammers, will make their personal emails appear as if they are sent from a high-ranking employee at the targeted business. The email, which requests names of each employee and their Form W-2, is sent to someone in the company or business’ human resources or accounting department, and if successful, collects sensitive personal information of each employee.The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Commissioner John Koskinen called the W-2 scam one of the most dangerous email phishing scams the IRS has seen in a long time. Attorney General Hill is cautioning everyone that this scam is not exclusive to the corporate world.If you work for a company that has been compromised by such a scam, the Office of the Indiana Attorney General encourages you to sign up for a credit freeze to protect yourself from becoming a victim of identity theft. Hoosiers can visit the Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Division for more information. You can also fill out an Identity Theft Complaint Form. Contact us at 1-800-382-5516 to speak to a consumer protection staff member who can help you in obtaining an Identity Theft Affidavit Form 14039 which can be submitted to the IRS if you are a victim of tax fraud.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

Warrens’ staff gain on-the-job NVQs

By

first_imgWarrens Bakery staff have become the first to get a new-style qualification without spending time in the classroom, doing coursework, or exams.Forty-two of the Cornish company’s store managers and assistant managers have just finished an NVQ Level 2 course in Food Manufacture Retail and Service Support Skills, with assessment based only on observation by their managers.The course, developed by Cornwall College Business in conjunction with the food and drink sector skills council Improve, dovetails with Warrens’ internal training programme. It takes place on the job, and progress is recorded as employees carry out activities, or ’taskways,’ correctly on more than one occasion.Warrens’ eight area managers have been trained to teach and assess the NVQ. Senior area manager Andrew Cane said: “This qualification used to involve a lot of paperwork, which many employees were just not comfortable with. This is a million times better and we now just have to watch and ask questions.”Warrens’ Heamoor store manager Alistair Sedgeman added: “It felt like I was just assessed on what I normally do day-to-day. It has helped sharpen my skills.”Family-owned firm Warrens has 450 retail staff across 50 outlets and all will complete the course.last_img read more
