International operators target re-regulated Sweden

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter 18th July 2018 | By contenteditor Tags: Online Gambling Email Address Regions: Europe Nordics Sweden The upcoming re-regulation of the Swedish iGaming market has led to a flurry of activity from international operators exploring the opportunity to secure a listing on the Stockholm Stock Exchange, according to Adam Kostyal, senior vice-president at Nasdaq, which operates the market.As reported last week by iGamingBusiness.com, Sweden’s gaming regulator has urged operators to apply as early as possible when the licensing window opens on August 1 ahead of the market opening up in January 2019.Kostyal told iGamingBusiness.com at iGB Live! in Amsterdam that Nasdaq Stockholm is on track to add about 100 new listings this year, market permitting, with some 10 to 15 per cent of those in the pipeline being non-Nordic.Of those companies that are from outside the region, about 30 per cent are companies that are “driven by the gambling sector”, Kostyal said.“We’re seeing more and more international interest,” he added. “Whether this develops or not, it’s looking very positive.”The interest in Nasdaq Stockholm as a hub of investment activity in the sector has been partly driven by the “cluster of gambling companies, analysts, investors and advisers” who view the exchange with increasing interest, Kostyal said.Explaining that about 78 per cent of the sector’s market capitalisation is listed in either Sweden or the UK, Kostyal added that Nasdaq Stockholm is home to three companies in the industry that can boast valuations in excess of €1bn – Evolution Gaming, Kindred and NetEnt.Nasdaq Stockholm’s growth market, First North, has an average market capitalisation of €58m for a gambling industry-related company. Moreover, more companies from the sector have opted to list on First North than the London Stock Exchange’s Alternative Investment Market over the past three years, bucking a previous trend.“The general perception has been that London is the hub, but that is being questioned more and more,” Kostyal said.“Brexit is going to be a disruptor and we have a cluster of companies creating a lot of attention in terms of Stockholm being a natural hub.”Stockholm is the second-largest of Nasdaq’s 29 exchanges worldwide, behind the US.Kostyal added that it is too early to discover what the implications will be for the global investment landscape following the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) in May.“We’re talking to more and more companies that are considering a possible future dual listing in the US when the time is right,” he said.“We’re happy to enter into dialogue with companies about opportunities and potential restrictions, but it’s very early days.” One-third of non-Nordic listings ‘in the pipeline’ for Nasdaq Stockholm are gambling-related Legal & compliance Topics: Legal & compliance Tech & innovation Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter International operators target re-regulated Swedenlast_img read more

How esports operators can identify the right affiliates to work with

first_imgMany media groups have tried to become the “ESPN of esports”, but none have quite succeeded. Pro gaming is still young, so fans can’t look to existing mainstream news outlets for news and analysis. Content creators have stepped in to fill the void. Twitch, Twitter and YouTube are the primary platforms for esports content, but the lack of a centralised platform means that curious would-be esports bettors are more likely to just Google their questions and click whatever comes up. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Potential video game bettors also appreciate certain kinds of content more than others. They’re internet savvy and more familiar with how online businesses work, so sponsored reviews don’t mean much to them. News, historical information and general betting advice are much more appropriate for the esports market. Gaming bettors are generally younger than traditional sports gamblers and don’t have the same experience or comfort in the sportsbook. Instructional content specifically geared towards esports hit several valuable notes. Esports betting sites experience different marketing challenges from their traditional counterparts. Most importantly, they have to appeal to gamers, a notoriously opaque market compared to football or basketball fans. Bookies need to account for the differences between the two when planning their marketing efforts. Examples of good esports betting affiliates Look for a superior SEO offering and rock-solid content that’s distinct from the usual sports fare. Tags: Esports Affiliate Because of that, search engine optimisation (SEO) is a must. Any affiliate site should already practice a clear SEO standard. Proper SEO dramatically increases the number of people finding the content through search services, therefore increasing the number of people clicking through to your site.  How esports operators can identify the right affiliates to work with This distinction is further exacerbated when choosing affiliate marketing sites. Luckily, bookmakers can leverage a handful of esports-specific traits to improve their campaigns. By Kenneth Williams Topics: Esports Esports fans differ greatly from physical sports fans when it comes to media. While NFL or NBA fans are more likely to watch established networks such as ESPN or FOX Sports, esports fans are much more open to independent sources. This means that affiliate sites can serve as great educational resources or even entertainment for esports fans, especially those interested in betting. By keeping a handful of criteria in mind, you can maximise the percentage of visitors clicking through an affiliate to your esportsbook. For a hybrid site, TheSportsGeek.com does a good job of balancing their traditional and digital sports content. Its SEO is mostly geared towards attracting sports bettors, but an entire section of its site is dedicated to pro gaming. All of the content is entirely unique from its existing traditional sports content, so esports players feel the same sense of importance as football or basketball bettors. Your affiliates should match your sportsbooks, so choose dedicated or hybrid affiliate sites based on what you offer. Lastly, the golden rule of affiliate marketing always applies. Perform your due diligence when researching a potential partner. Investigate what other betting sites they work with and how they’re represented. If you’re explicitly pushing esports, see if they’ve worked in the field before or just pay it some lip service. The quality of content also matters, so go to the site yourself and read some of their articles yourself. Affiliate partnerships create a link between their content and your site in the eyes of esports fans. If the SEO stands out like a sore thumb or the content is completely outdated, esports fans will be less encouraged to visit you. If you want an example to follow, many affiliates have found great success. Betting operators should consider Esportsbets.com a standard. Its homepage is updated frequently with new designs and new content – scroll down and you’ll see in-house esports news, educational content and useful tools for bettors. It offers free odds trackers for CS:GO, League of Legends, Dota 2 and Overwatch. Esportsbets.com takes advantage of SEO to score hits from search engines, but readers have a reason to return to the site. Recurring visitors are much more likely to eventually click on a website.  Esports 22nd April 2021 | By contenteditor What esports betting operators should look for in affiliates Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Email Addresslast_img read more

Barring a batting collapse, the two teams will share the honours.On the third day of the game, Shubman Gill became the youngest Indian cricketer to score a first-class double century and combined with Vihari to put India A in the driver’s seat.The 19-year-old Gill, seen as the next big thing in Indian cricket, scored an unbeaten 204 off 250 deliveries to break former India opener Gautam Gambhir’s record.Gambhir was 20 when he notched up 218 for India Board President’s XI against the Zimbabweans in a tour match in 2002.India A resumed at an overnight score of 23 for three, and Gill, starting at 2, reached his century at the stroke of lunch. His overnight partner Shahbaz Nadeem fell for 13, after resuming on five, early in the day.Captain Vihari (118 not out) then joined Gill in the middle and the two resurrected the Indian innings after a top-order collapse. The duo produced an unbeaten 315-run stand for the fifth wicket before India A declared on 365 for 4 soon after Gill scored his double ton.Gill bounced back strongly from his a first-ball duck in the first innings, and his unbeaten knock of 204 was laced with 19 fours and two sixes, with a strike rate of 82.25.While Vihari, who had earlier bailed out India in the first innings with a half century, continued in the same vein, hitting 10 boundaries and a maximum.Brief Scores:India A: 201 and 365/4d in 90 overs (Shubman Gill 204 not out, Hanuma Vihari 118 not out, Chemar K Holder 2/88)West Indies A: 194 and 179/2 in 60 overs (B King 77, J Solozano 61 batting; S Nadeem 2/57).

Some Progress Made in Planting in NE Indiana

According to USDA, 2% of Indiana corn has been planted, well behind the 17% 5 year average.Lance Shepherd, Pioneer agronomist in NE Indiana, said there was fieldwork and planting activity that took place last week, “Kosciusko, Elkhart, LaGrange, Noble, and Steuben Counties were able to get some corn and soybeans in the ground last week before the rains came.” He added that some burndown and anhydrous applications were also made.Shepherd said as we turn the page on the calendar tomorrow, the anxiety level among growers will increase. “This is what we saw in 2018 and we came out OK, so don’t push things too hard and get bad results.” He noted that yield loss from soil compaction can run as high as 20%, and “That is a lot worse than the 3/10 per day from late planting.” He added it is too early to consider any hybrid changes, but it might be time to consider some other changes, “You might want to consider using side dressing on nitrogen or perhaps no-till.”Soil moisture in Indiana remains well above average. Topsoil moisture is rated at 100% adequate to surplus and subsoil moisture 98% adequate to surplus. SHARE Facebook Twitter SHARElast_img read more

RFE/RL provincial correspondents harassed and threatened by intelligence officers

first_imgNews Coronavirus off limits in Turkmenistan March 31, 2020 Find out more to go further RSF_en Reporters Without Borders is very worried by the harassment of two Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty correspondents in Turkmenistan. Dovletmurat Yazguliev and Osman Hallyev, who report for RFE/RL’s Turkmen service from the provinces, have both been subjected to threats and intimidation by local intelligence officers in the last two weeks.“Similar situations in the past have ended tragically, so we urge President Gurbanguly Berdymukhammedov to intervene at once,” Reporters Without Borders said. “If this has been done at the initiative of local officials, they must be brought to order. If not, we reiterate our appeal to the president to order the Turkmen security apparatus to stop treating journalists as enemies and criminals.”An RFE/RL correspondent since September 2006, Hallyev has been under virtual house arrest in the northeastern province of Lebap since the start of January after being held for several hours in the provincial jail. He said he notified the local prosecutor’s office about his plight without getting any response.Hallyev was already subjected to harassment last month while covering Turkmenistan’s parliamentary elections. Several close relatives have lost their jobs as a result of his complaints, his phone lines have been cut and his personal Internet connection is hardly working.Yazguliev, who has been reporting for RFE/RL from the eastern province of Akhal since October, said he and his wife were summoned at the end of last month to a local government office where intelligence officers questioned him about his work. They threatened him with reprisals if he did not stop working for RFE/RL, which is based in Prague and is financed by the US government. He says he intends to continue reporting for RFE/RL for the time being.One of RFE/RL’s provincial correspondents in Turkmenistan, Sazak Durdymuradov, was arrested by intelligence officers on 20 June and was tortured while held for two weeks.Reporters Without Borders wrote to President Berdymukhammedov on 11 December urging him to take Turkmenistan down the road of democratisation. Turkmenistan was ranked 171st out of 173 countries in the 2008 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.
