  • JenningsBet owner hails retail growth as turnover hits £40m

    first_img Regions: UK & Ireland Betting Shop Services, the company behind the UK-facing Betterbet and JenningsBet brands, has cited the performance of its retail business as the main driver of year-on-year growth in profit and turnover for its financial year ended April 29th, 2018. Turnover for the 12 month period amounted to £40.1m (€45.1m/$51.6m), up 12% from the £35.7m generated in the previous year. The operator credited this growth to an increase in gross win from self-service betting terminals (SSBTs) across its retail estate, though it did not break out what had been generated from its online and retail operations. While this growth in turnover was accompanied by an increase in the cost of sales for the year, which rose to £11.2m, the company saw gross profit climb 12% to £28.9m. Administrative expenses rose 2.3% to £27.1m for the period, which helped the company recover from an operating loss of £319,600 in its 2016-17 financial year to post an operating profit of £2.1m for the 2017-18 period. Having seen interest payments fall sharply from £3.8m in 2016-17 to £1.8m, the company posted a post-tax profit of £266,000, up from a £4.2m loss in the prior year.Greg Knight, managing director of Betting Shop Services, told Insider Media he was very pleased with the company’s performance in the past year.“[The figures are] the result of a lot of hard work from a dedicated workforce as well as investment,” Knight said.“The World Cup was good for us and we’ve seen strong growth in football. Horse racing is our core product and there were some great meetings last year. Our Grand National turnover was up year-on-year.”However, Betting Shop Services also noted that it was closely watching developments relating to fixed-odds betting terminals (FOBTs), which will see maximum stakes cut from £100 to £2 from April 2019. “The directors are monitoring the situation closely and and whilst doing so, are assessing any potential impact that will result, to enable them to take all appropriate measures to protect the long-term future of the business,” the company said. “The assessment includes the consideration of the levels of both FOBT and over-the-counter income, together with overall profitabliity of individual shops.“This will enable the directors to act swiftly to mitgate [any] reduction in gaming revenue.”Image: Dietmar Rabich Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter 19th November 2018 | By contenteditor JenningsBet owner hails retail growth as turnover hits £40m Finance Betting Shop Services credits SSBTs for putting business back in the black in 2017-18 financial year AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Topics: Finance Tags: Online Gambling OTB and Betting Shops Email Addresslast_img read more

  • Spanish football begins preparations for June return

    first_img Football clubs in LaLiga Santander and LaLiga SmartBank – Spain’s two highest divisions in the sport – are set to return to training this week with the aim of restarting the 2019-20 season behind closed doors in June.The leagues have set out a Return to Training Protocol, detailing the plans for training and matches to resume as lockdown measures are eased in Spain. As part of this plan, players will be tested for novel coronavirus (Covid-19) and training facilities and stadia will be disinfected.“This crisis has had a profound impact on all of us,” Javier Tebas, the president of LaLiga, said. “The return of football is a sign that society is progressing towards the new normal. It will also bring back an element of life that people in Spain and around the world know and love.Players will initially train individually, but training will be scaled up gradually until whole squads may practice together.“People’s health is paramount, so we have a comprehensive protocol to safeguard the health of everyone involved as we work to restart LaLiga,” Tebas continued. “Circumstances are unprecedented, but we hope to start playing again in June and finish our 19/20 season this summer.”La Liga was suspended – initially for two matchdays before the suspension was extended – on 12 March, when the Real Madrid squad went into quarantine after a player of the club’s basketball team tested positive for the virus.The suspension came with 11 out of 38 games still to play and defending champions Barcelona two points clear of Real Madrid at the top of the table while Mallorca, Leganes and Espanyol sat in the relegation spots.Last week (29 April), the French Football Federation (FFF) has said that all 2019-20 domestic leagues and competitions in the country will not resume, after Prime Minister Édouard Philippe announced a ban on sporting events until September.In Switzerland, however, sports will be permitted to resume behind closed doors from 8 June.

  • German slot associations hit out at new Rheinland-Pfalz gaming hall regulations

    first_imgStecker added that regulation needed to be evidence-led and there was not sufficient evidence to suggest distance rules protected children. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter “Hundreds of the mostly second or third generation family-run vending machine companies would stand in front of the ruins of their business and 2,500 people in Rheinland-Pfalz would lose their jobs,” he said. The igaming market is currently in a transition period where operators may offer online casino games provided they keep to the rules of the Fourth State Treaty on Gambling, which will officially come into force on 1 July, 2021. German gaming machine trade association Die Deutsche Automatenwirtschaft eV (DAW) and its state equivalent Automaten-Verband Rheinland-Pfalz eV (AVRP) have spoken out against an amendment to Rheinland-Pfalz’s Gaming Act (LGlüG), claiming that it could kill the industry. German slot associations hit out at new Rheinland-Pfalz gaming hall regulations Topics: Casino & games Legal & compliance Social responsibility Slots Compliance Legal Regulation CSR Responsible gambling Tags: DAW Rhineland-Palatinate “The present draft law destroys the legal offering of slots in Rheinland-Pfalz, because it means the end for more than half of all state-licensed gambling halls,” DAW board spokesman Georg Stecker said. The amendment – currently under consideration in the Landtag – requires that gambling halls must be at least 500m from schools or youth facilities, which the bodies said would require half of all licensed operators to close their doors. Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter “We need regulation based on qualitative criteria that strengthens youth and player protection and maintains proper operations, also in Rheinland-Pfalz,” he said. Regulation Wolfgang Götz, chairman of the AVRP, added that he believed the soon-to-be-regulated online gaming market posed a much greater risk to children. This, he said, would lead to major job losses across an industry that employs 4,000 people in the state. “The draft law is a slap in the face of the ordinary medium-sized vending machine companies in Rheinland-Pfalz and hits us particularly hard in the midst of the economic crisis,” Götz said. “And while more than every second state-licensed amusement arcade in the country under threat of closure on July 1, 2021, the online gaming market is being legalized at the same time, where there are naturally no minimum distances. Nobody understands that anymore.” Regions: Europe Central and Eastern Europe Germany 8th December 2020 | By Daniel O’Boyle Email Addresslast_img read more

Big credit goes to the duo as MI finished at the top on the IPL 2020 points table. According to bowling coach Shane Bond, the Bumrah – Boult pair will be back on Thursday and will hurt Delhi Capitals.“It has been a busy schedule especially for fast bowlers like Trent Boult and Jasprit Bumrah. It is not just about the back-to-back fixtures but also the travel between Sharjah and Dubai. The SRH game was an opportunity to give those guys a break. But they are coming back and will hurt DC” said MI bowling coach Shane Bond while speaking to reporters.

OnlineUndoPhotoStickHow To Back Up All Your Old Photos In SecondsPhotoStickUndocio.comUnlocking the Success of Digital Transformation with Active Intelligencecio.comUndoWith MI already through to the play-offs, the team management decided to rest both Bumrah and Boult in the game against SRH as the two bowlers had played in all 13 of the league games. However, in their absence, MI went down to SRH by 10 wickets in the last league encounter.While Bumrah has taken 23 wickets, Boult has 20 wickets. The New Zealander left-armer has picked 12 wickets in the powerplay and has, in most games, given MI early advantage.Bond added that the good thing is that all the players have had game time and that will be helpful in case someone picks an injury and is to be replaced in the play-offs.“Games in IPL come thick and fast. To be able to rest some of our players is a bonus for us after we qualified early. Everybody has had game time, it is good for us in case someone picks an injury,” he added.Given that Bumrah and Boult were deliberately rested for the game against SRH, the pacers will be back in the playing XI for the Qualifier 1 against Delhi Capitals on Thursday.
