Sports wagering licences would expire on June 30 of each year.Operators that secure a licence would be permitted to work with a third-party in order to run a sports betting platform in the state. Such partnerships would be covered by an associated gambling business licence, which would permit the leasing of sports betting equipment, systems, or other items necessary to offer sports wagering.All licensed sportsbook operators would be subject to a tax rate of 8.5% of their adjusted gross betting receipts, less winnings paid and payments to the federal government as federal excise tax.For the privilege of conducting sports betting within the premises of a licensed gambling operator, a sportsbook operator would pay the venue 5% of the net sportsbook income derived from the premises. In addition, sportsbook operators would need to pay an annual fee of $100 for each kiosk place with a gambling operator.The bill also sets out measures related to the responsible advertising of betting-related products and content across all media, the development and deployment of responsible gambling resources for consumers, as well as the mandatory monitoring and reporting of suspicious betting activity.Montana joins eastern neighbours North Dakota and South Dakota among the many states that are weighing up sports betting regulation.A bill in North Dakota remains under consideration, but South Dakota looks set to miss out on sports wagering this year after lawmakers voted down an amendment that would have allowed for regulated sports wagering in the state.last_img read more

Marketing’s big evolution: Part 2

first_img Regions: Europe Nordics Sweden Topics: Casino & games Marketing & affiliates Sports betting In the second of a two-part interview, Kindred CMO Elen Barber discusses the changing tools, technologies and responsibilities of a marketing executive in the igaming industry.Read Part 1 here.There’s been a growing awareness in recent times that operators need to change their approach to marketing. Rather than bombarding players with offers, marketing should be used to build long-term, sustainable relationships with customers, says Barber.This can start with offering the best games and an optimum service. It can go further, she says, by highlighting the player protection controls in place, by making sure a player is aware that an operator will intervene should their gambling habits show signs of developing into problems.“[That] is what many gambling companies don’t do enough,” she says.Barber argues that without the right marketing, products, features and even safeguards can go unnoticed. “Even if you have the best product in the world, if you are not able to communicate it to the customers in the right language, the right way and the right channel, that product becomes useless.”Coming crackdown With scrutiny and criticism of the igaming marketing growing, she is very aware of the potential for new restrictions and controls. Indeed, already there are calls for a clampdown on advertising in Sweden, despite the regulated market being barely six months old.Barber says such calls are premature and points out that market launches are always accompanied by a race by licensees to carve out market share: “In the past it was just the monopoly and now there are more than 70 licensed operators in the market and they are doing exactly the same as the monopoly used to do.”Advertising, she says, will decline eventually, following this initial push. “[Operators] will really look at the efficiency of different channels to reassess their investment in the digital channels and above the line to see what is better for their customers.”She sees self-regulation as a potential cure for the industry’s ills. It’s up to the operators to identify what the issues are, how they plan to address them, then to work with their peers to ensure the rest of the sector shares these views.But she concedes there’s a limit to what can be achieved here. “We won’t be able to fight political decisions. But if it is something that we can influence by having better standards and following those standards, then we can make sure we can counter the policymakers with a strong framework that we all agree to follow.”Given the frequent backlashes against gambling advertising, coupled with the increasing effectiveness of digital marketing, it would be easy to wonder if the era of operators making a big splash with TV marketing was perhaps coming to an end.But Barber says she doesn’t believe this is the case: “Channels such as pay-per-click (PPC) will always stay on the bottom of the conversion channel. Above the line, TV and radio, will stay on top of it because they bring more brand awareness.”Shifting marketing landscape That’s not to say digital marketing doesn’t have a role to play. “It is very important to have the right media mix,” Barber says. “You can’t just focus on one channel. Each channel, whether it is TV or print or affiliate advertising, has its own role in the conversion funnel.“You need to make sure you utilise every single channel properly, understanding what level of investment is required in each channel to get the best return.”Barber, who has been at Kindred nine years and has worked her way up through various marketing roles, says she is also keen to get in early on new trends taking hold outside gambling.For example, she was quick to spot the value of programmatic advertising in its early days. “When programmatic advertising was just a talking point, I was the person to say Kindred needed to invest in it,” she says. “We were the first gambling company to create an in-house programmatic team.“We realised that if we wanted to do it properly, we wouldn’t be able to do it through any of the agencies because the data we had was an advantage. So we had to do it in-house.”Barber admits that staying on top of all the new developments in marketing technology is a challenge. “If you look at the current market landscape, there are over 7,000 big companies out there providing marketing services and the CMO role is to be on top of everything and understand how all these technologies and systems integrate with each other.”But for her the challenge is made easier by marketing having such a prominent position at Kindred.“If you look at not just gambling industries but all industries out there, then usually the CMO is a part of commercial, so you don’t really have your own seat at the executive table,” she says. “It is more about how you serve the commercial department. This is completely different to what we’ve done at Kindred. Marketing is a big standalone organisation working hand-in-hand with the commercial team.” Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter In the second of a two-part interview, Kindred CMO Elen Barber discusses the changing tools, technologies and responsibilities of a marketing executive in the igaming industry Casino & games Email Address Tags: Mobile Online Gambling AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Marketing’s big evolution: Part 2 3rd July 2019 | By Joanne Christielast_img read more

Norway’s NBO attacks TV ad ban plans

first_img News that the Norwegian government has moved to finally close the loophole allowing offshore operators to advertise in the country has been greeted with dismay by the trade association representing these companies, Norsk Bransjeforening for Onlinespill (NBO).However, NBO Secretary General Carl Fredrik Stenstrøm added, while it was disappointing, it was not surprising. He argued in favour of a shift to a more liberal regulator model as opposed to attempting to maintain a monopoly for gambling.“[It is] disappointing that the authorities do not recognise the development we see in other countries where a license model has been implemented – where accountability is at the centre,”  Stenstrøm said.It was announced late in February that the Norwegian government is to table amendments to the Broadcasting Act. This will allow the Norwegian Media Authority to order Norwegian TV distributors and internet providers to prevent marketing by offshore operators.Currently the Broadcasting Act’s jurisdiction only extends to TV stations in Norway, rather than those broadcasting into the country from other countries. For years unlicensed operators have used this to promote their products in the country, despite state-owned Norsk Tipping and Norsk Rikstoto being the country’s only licensed operators.Stenstrøm said rather than attempting to crack down on offshore activity, Norway should instead work towards developing a new regulatory model to regulate private operators.He pointed out that today only Norway and Finland maintained monopolies over gambling in the European Union.“If you are able to defend a monopoly, it is on the grounds of consumer protection,” he said. “According to [Norwegian regulator] Lotteri-og stiftelsestilsynet, there are 250,000 Norwegians using my members’ services outside Norway. We know there are more – but let’s say 250,000.“It [would] be much better to give these players good tools to be able to regulate their gambling through [a self-exclusion system].“In Sweden, 48,000 have already used this service after 12 months, a success for those who want to limit their gambling and a success for public health,” he said.However, a report by Olso Economics on behalf of the Norwegian Sports Federation and addiction treatment body ExtraStiftelsen Health and Rehabilitation warned against opening up the market to private operators.Published in August last year, the report claimed that this move could see players shift from the state-operated, low-risk lottery products to higher risk verticals such as online casino. Furthermore, it said, as activity moved from the state-owned sites to private operators, there could be a significant reduction in funding for good causes.NBO current counts Betsson, Kindred Group, Cherry’s ComeOn and Gaming Innovation Group as members.

UK greyhound racing prepares for June return

first_img Greyhound racing is set to return in the UK from 1 June, with betting content provider and racetrack operator Sports Information Services (SIS) preparing to offer coverage of events across eight tracks.The Greyhound Board of Great Britain (GBGB) has set out a five-phase approach for the resumption of racing, with phase one – comprising trial meetings behind closed doors – successfully completed on 23 May.This comes after a two month shut-down, that began when the UK went into lockdown as a result of novel coronavirus (Covid-19) from 23 March.This clears the way for phase two, which will see racing return behind closed doors. Each fixture will be limited to a maximum of ten fixtures with a minimum 30 minutes’ gap between races.For this phase, SIS will return with coverage 42 fixtures across its eight greyhound tracks per week, as well as reintroducing its service at Towcester. The fixtures will be spaced throughout the day, with two in the morning; two in the afternoon; and two in the evening, to offer digital customers a broad range of betting opportunities.“Our UK tracks have been undergoing trials for the last week and will continue through this week to ensure that all racing greyhounds will have completed at least two trials before racing resumes on 1 June,” SIS product director Paul Witten said.“We’re very pleased to see a return to racing and would like to pay thanks to our tracks who have been very supportive of these new measures.”Should phase two go without any hitch, phase three will see the maximum number of races increased to 12, with a minimum 25 minutes between each race. Phase four will then see no limit on the number of races, with a gap of twenty minutes between races, before the fifth and final phase sees a return to normality.Witten added that SIS was liaising with the Irish Greyhound Board, and that the supplier was confident it would be able to extend its service to include fixtures from the country later in June.It comes after Covid-19 effectively forced SIS into “hibernation”, with the shut-down of all retail services leading to a significant number of staff being furloughed. The business continued to supply operators with online content, however.The supplier was also hit by the suspension of British racing from 18 March, though that is also set to return from 1 June.

As euphoria for the World Cup 2019 is building up, International Cricket Council has analysed how each captain based on his captaincy record can influence the games.Photo Courtesy: ICCAfghanistan – Gulbadin NaibGulbadin Naib along with his side will be making the ICC World Cup debut as captain. He is also set to lead in an international game for the first time. Naib was recently named the new Afghanistan ODI captain, taking over from Asghar Afghan, as the Afghanistan Cricket Board adopted a split captaincy system, featuring a different leader for each of the three formats. With no past leadership experience, how Naib fares in his new role remains to be seen. His credentials as a player: 807 runs in 52 ODIs to go alongside 40 wickets.Photo Courtesy: ICCAustralia – Aaron FinchAaron Finch has the experience of leading the Kangaroos in only 18 ODIs till date. His team has won 10 of them at a 56% success rate. He was handed the reigns of one of the most formidable national cricket team in October last year. He has steadily built the team. Nine of Australia’s 10 wins under Finch has come since January this year. Finch struggled with the bat for a good chunk of his captaincy period, before regaining form in the series against Pakistan in March, when he scored two centuries and as many fifties.Photo Courtesy: ICCBangladesh – Mashrafe MortazaOne of the most experienced members of the side, Mashrafe Mortaza will be leading Bangladesh for the second time at the World Cup. Under his leadership in the 2015 edition, the team finished fourth in Group A, above England, Afghanistan and Scotland, before losing in the quarter-final to India. That had been Bangladesh’s first entry into the knockouts of a World Cup, and it arrived via a nervy, famous 15-run win over England. Mortaza has been a successful captain for Bangladesh, winning 40 of the 73 games he has led in.Photo Courtesy: ICCEngland – Eoin MorganEoin Morgan has been at the helm, overseeing England’s remarkable transformation into a formidable one-day outfit, since their heartbreaking exit in the group stage at the 2015 edition. Under Morgan’s leadership, England have ascended to the top of the pile and are currently No.1 in the MRF Tyres ICC Men’s ODI Team Rankings. They head into this year’s tournament as one of the favourites, and are eyeing their maiden World Cup crown, at home. Morgan is captaining what is arguably the strongest England team to ever compete in a World Cup. Since that 2015 exit, Morgan has led England to 50 wins in 76 ODIs.Photo Courtesy: ICCIndia – Virat KohliThe Indian skipper will be one of the biggest attractions of this World Cup, whose success will not just be important for India but also be crucial to the commercial success of cricket’s biggest and most precious tournaments.As is the case with Morgan, Virat Kohli carries extra baggage as captain of one of the favourites to win the tournament. Kohli’s leadership has developed with time, and he arrives at the tournament with a staggering win percentage of 73.88 in ODIs. Out of the 68 games India have played under Kohli, they have won 49. Kohli has past experience of leading at a world event, having captained India during their run to the final of the ICC Champions Trophy 2017, which they lost to Pakistan at Lord’s. He is now set to lead in his maiden World Cup, and will be one of the most-watched players.Photo Courtesy: ICCNew Zealand – Kane WilliamsonThe current New Zealand skipper was part of the team that finished as runners-up in 2015, after making the final for the first time. While Williamson grew under the then captain Brendon McCullum, he brings a vastly different approach to the captaincy himself. Calm and composed, Williamson brings laser-sharp focus and unquestionable intent, both to his batting and to his captaincy. Williamson will be the lynchpin of the New Zealand line-up, as its most successful batsman. Concurrently, he has also enjoyed success as a leader, boasting a win percentage of 53.96.Photo Courtesy: ICCPakistan – Sarfaraz AhmedThe captain during their run to the ICC Champions Trophy title in 2017, Sarfaraz Ahmed will look to lead Pakistan to the World Cup trophy at the same site of their Champions Trophy triumph. He certainly possesses the track record to make it happen, having won 21 out of the 35 ODIs he has captained in, for a win percentage of 61.76. Sarfaraz will play several important roles for Pakistan during the World Cup, as captain, as a middle-order batsman, and as a wicket-keeper. Photo Courtesy: ICCSouth Africa  – Faf du PlessisFaf du Plessis is the most successful as skipper among all the ten captains leading their respective sides. He has enjoyed terrific success as leader: out of the 30 ODIs in which he has captained, South Africa have lost only five, translating to a brilliant win percentage of 83.33. Since the start of 2018, South Africa have lost only one bilateral series, and have won five. A stylish middle-order batsman, du Plessis averages 46.54 in ODIs, making him a vital top-order asset. However, he is also flexible enough to be used in the lower middle-order.Photo Courtesy: ICCSri Lanka  – Dimuth KarunaratneSri Lanka will be without the services of some of their more regular and experienced players, including Niroshan Dickwella, Dinesh Chandimal, Upul Tharanga and Akila Dananjaya. Dimuth Karunaratne, who last played an ODI in March 2015, at the previous World Cup, was named captain for this year’s tournament. He recently led his side to a historic 2-0 sweep of South Africa earlier this year – Sri Lanka’s maiden Test series win in the country – but is yet to make his captaincy debut in ODIs. Karunaratne has some way to go as a batsman – he’s got the technique and knows how to score runs, but has only 190 runs from 17 games, at an average of under 16. Photo Courtesy: ICCWest Indies – Jason HolderWest Indies won the first two editions of the World Cup, in 1975 and 1979, and their current captain takes inspiration from the man who led them to those triumphs: Clive Lloyd. Holder recently opened up about his relationship with the West Indies legend and is keen on repeating history this year at Lord’s, the venue of the side’s last World Cup win. The 27-year-old all-rounder is going to be the youngest captain at this year’s tournament, and with a good mix of experience and youth in his side, is focused on repeating history. Although West Indies haven’t won a bilateral ODI series since 2014, they recently drew a five-match series against tournament hosts England at home, and will take the confidence from that going into the tournament.Also Read: ICC World Cup 2019: BCCI, PCB issue guidelines on WAGsICC World Cup 2019: Ticket sales reopened for all teams, fansICC World Cup 2019: India’s S Ravi among match officialsICC World Cup 2019: India-Pakistan match tickets highest priced Cricket PSL 2021 Qualifier 1 ISL vs MUL LIVE: best way to watch Islamabad United vs Multan Sultans Live Streaming in your country, India, Follow… Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Tokyo Olympics: BCCI provides fuel in Indian Olympic flame, to contribute Rs 10 crore Facebook Twitter ICC World Cup 2019: Meet the 10 captains RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR ENG-W vs IND-W: Sneh Rana reveals England sledged a lot but we did not pay attention WTC Final Day 3 Stumps: India remove Conway and Latham but Kiwis on top; NZ 101/2 (49 ovs) trail by 116 runs By Kunal Dhyani – April 26, 2019 Cricket WTC Final IND vs NZ: Virat Kohli displays his dancing skills on the beats of Bharat Army’s Dhol; Watch video last_img read more

Paris will be the first edition that will fully fit into this vision.”“We must fight against gigantism,” he continued. “In Paris, we will return to a budget lower than that of previous editions: 3.8 billion euros for operations and around three billion for all infrastructure.
