The Icelandic lender, taken under state control in October 2008, had tried to have the claim dismissed from the UK system, leaving a separate claim to be filed as part of administration procedures in Iceland. A statement released on behalf of Consensus Business Group, of which Vincent Tchenguiz is chairman, said: “I am delighted that the English High Court has recognised the right of the claimants to bring their claim in England. All dealings with Kaupthing Bank were conducted in England under English law … The substantive claim for damages of over £1bn will now proceed in the English courts.” The family’s trust is also pursuing Kaupthing in Reykjavik court, as part of the bank’s winding up procedure under the Icelandic administration regime. The Tchenguiz brothers were released without charge last week as part of an ongoing investigation into the Icelandic bank’s downfall. Sharelast_img read more

There are no individual savings accounts (ISAs) available that beat February’s 20-year high inflation rate of 5.5 per cent rate under the retail price index, according to Moneyfacts.co.uk.Just eight ISAs, all on fixed rates, can compete with the consumer price index rate of 4.4 per cent, the comparison website adds, making it particularly difficult for those supplementing their income with savings.Higher rate earners paying 40 per cent tax would need a savings account that paid out 7.3 per cent interest per year to make up for the higher than expected inflation hike.“Over the last six months the number of savings accounts that beat inflation for basic rate taxpayers has dropped successively from 118 to only eight today,” said spokesperson Sylvia Waycot. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

  • Don Best: Jewel in Scientific Games’ crown, or thorn in its side?

    first_img Julian Buhagiar responds to yesterday’s acquisition of Don Best by Scientific Games Email Address Don Best: Jewel in Scientific Games’ crown, or thorn in its side? Scientific Games’ acquisition of Don Best Sports was met with a less-than-enthusiastic response by investors, argues Julian Buhagiar, citing SGMS’s 9% climb in share price by closing yesterday (9 October).Why has there been such a lukewarm reception to Scientific Games’ acquisition of US betting and data supplier Don Best? It may be a reflection of Don Best’s data gathering techniques; using pricing analysts at games or the aggregation of feeds from largely offshore sportsbooks. Or it could be its relatively low annual revenue of around $15m.On the face of it, the acquisition is strategically a good one. A new platform offering is likely to fare better than the incumbent OpenBet platform. Indeed, there have been doubts as to whether the latter is fit for purpose having only secured one major sports betting contract in the US post-PASPA, despite SG being the online casino provider of choice across numerous New Jersey operators.On technology alone, Don Best would appear to be a jewel in SG’s crown especially given the data aggregation potential, but it will be interesting to see just how SG manages to bolt this tech onto its proprietary business and just how complex a process this will be.Fortunately, we are still very much in the early days of US sports betting re-regulation and SG’s IT and trading teams will have some time to rewire the system to accommodate specific US needs. That said, it is peak US sports season and they will have to work overtime to ensure more customers come on board. One of the more significant factors behind SG’s inability to rally new enthusiasm, at least in the short term, lies more in the way it has amassed a significant amount of debt over time. Following its Q2 earnings report a few months ago, SG continues to be highly debt-leveraged; with more than $9bn owed in various loan-related instruments.Consequently, any below-target earnings will be amplified because of an increasing difficulty to service debt. The last numbers may have missed targets by modest amounts, but investors have started to question the company’s ability to turnaround profits, and by extension, their returns. Thus, any new acquisitions, such as Don Best, may be well-suited to SG in terms of its long-term strategic growth plans, but investors are more concerned around the company’s ability to service its short- to medium-term debt obligations. There has been a recent shift in the structure of US M&A transactions and we have seen a spike in interest from private equity and venture capital firms, most recently with Sportradar and Genius Sports.Interestingly, both also offer data services, which savvy investment firms know will always be in demand and offer stable and consistent annuity revenue unaffected by high customer acquisition costs or taxes. They will also be invaluable when aiming to engage and retain existing players and acquire and attract a new, younger mobile-first audience. We fully expect momentum around these types of deals to increase, especially around data-driven software suppliers and fast-growing platform providers, with exit valuations that will tempt even the most risk-averse firms given their medium- to long-term outlook. The potential of a larger-scale re-regulated US gaming and betting market is finally turning heads.Julian Buhagiar is co-founder of RB Capital. He is an investor, CEO and board director to multiple ventures in gaming, fintech and media markets and has lead investments, M&As and exits to date totalling more than of $340m.

  • Pretlow files mobile sports betting bill in New York

    first_imgCasino & games 4th March 2019 | By contenteditor Email Address Tags: Mobile OTB and Betting Shops Lawmakers in New York are to run the rule over a new bill that would legalise sports betting on mobile devices, in licensed casinos and at designated wagering lounges across the state.Introduced by Assemblyman Gary Pretlow, bill A06113 would amend the current racing, pari-mutuel wagering and breeding laws in the state in order to permit sports betting.Consumers aged 21 or older would be able to place wagers on professional and collegiate sports events, but wagering on high school competitions would not be permitted. The New York State Gaming Commission would be responsible for regulating the market.Operators that secure a licence to offer sports wagering services in New York would be taxed at a rate of 8.5% of gross sports betting revenue.Tax collected from sports wagering activities would be split between various causes, including problem gambling education and treatment efforts, as well as to help cover the cost of regulation.Licensed casinos that offer sports betting will also have to pay a “royalty fee” of 0.2% of the amount wagered on sports events conducted by registered sports governing bodies. This payment must be made within 30 days of the end of any calendar year.The bill did not say how much licences would cost under the proposed measures, but it did state that casinos seeking to offer mobile sports betting would be able to work with a third-party partner, provided that this partner also secures a licence in New York.Consumers would be able to make deposits and withdrawals from their mobile account in-person at a casino or an affiliated facility, as well as via authorised electronic payment methods and other means approved by the commission. Licensees must ensure their mobile betting servers are located at their own, licensed facility.In terms of allowing sports betting at designated lounges, the bill classifies these facilities as an area that operates a legal sports pool. Both in-person and mobile sports betting would be permitted in these lounges.This would seemingly open up the possibility of in-stadium, legal sports betting, with Madison Square Garden (MSG) having already applied to trademark its MSG brand for sports wagering purposes.Madison Square Garden Company – which operates MSG – has filed an application to use the MSG brand across online, mobile and social media. The filing requests MSG be trademarked for downloadable mobile apps for sports wagering, as well as organising, arranging, conducting and participating in sports wagering tournaments, providing information related to sports bets, and competitions and contests.Sports wagering regulation has been on the agenda for some time in New York, with the New York State Gaming Commission having commenced talks on possible laws for the market in January. It was effectively greenlit as far back as 2013, when a bill allowing the establishment of land-based casinos was ratified by voters in a referendum, with an admendment allowing sports betting, provided the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act be struck down. However, this amendment only permits in-person wagering.Initial laws set out by the Commission include sports betting only be conducted in dedicated, in-venue lounges, which must be at least 500 square feet, with no form of on-property mobile wagering or online betting permitted.All individuals directly involved in the operation of the sportsbook offering must be licensed or registered by the Commission, under the terms of the state’s Racing, Pari-Mutuel Wagering and Breeding Law.Casinos may also partner with a vendor to operate or assist in the running of the sportsbook, with all four existing commercial venues having already done soAside from sports betting, Assemblyman Pretlow is making a play for legal online poker in New York, having put a separate bill forward last month. Passed by the New York Committee on Racing and Wagering, Bill A04924, sets out plans to classify interactive poker as a game of skill rather than luck.

  • IOC encourages countries to back Macolin convention

    first_img Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter The International Olympic Committee (IOC) encouraged countries to ratify the Council of Europe Convention on the Manipulation of Sports Competitions, also known as the Macolin Convention, at the third International Forum for Sports Integrity (IFSI) yesterday (28 October).“This gathering today reflects the very nature of the IFSI, which is cooperation and partnership,”  IOC President Thomas Bach said. “We are a community which shares a common goal to protect competitions from manipulation and from related corruption.”The Forum saw delegates agree to 11 key points of action, the highest-profile of which was urging sports governing bodies ratify the Macolin Convention. These entities must also establish national platforms to fight sporting corruption, as set out by that Convention. This will be supported by the launch of the Sports Investigators Network, a coalition of investigators that have received training from Interpol and the IOC on fighting attempted manipulation.It said that each sports federation was responsible for protecting its sport and educating participants and officials about integrity, something that should be supported by betting operators. This, it said, should be achieved through communication campaigns using assets such as ambassadors, social media, and online and on-site activations. To ensure a flow of information, IFSI delegates agreed that reporting mechanisims are vital for governing bodies and governments. These should follow the best pratice guidelines set out in the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) and IOC’s Reporting Mechanisms in Sport: A Practical Guide for Development and Implementation guide. Regions: Europe Furthermore, use of data was seen as key for investigations. This exhange of information is crucial for upholding sporting integrity, which the IFSI argued met the needs for a public interest exception to the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulations.However, it also acknowledged that sports organisations have limited powers when it comes to obtaining evidence. As such, it said, there was a need to work closely with law enforcement agencies around the world. The International Olympic Committee (IOC) encouraged countries to ratify the Council of Europe Convention on the Manipulation of Sports Competitions, also known as the Macolin Convention, at the third International Forum for Sports Integrity (IFSI) yesterday (28 October). Topics: Sports betting Sports bettingcenter_img “It is crucial for government agencies and sports organisations to identify and apprehend those responsible for wrongdoing in sport, including competition manipulation,” Ronan O’Laoire, global coordinator for the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime’s (UNODC) global programme for safeguarding sport from corruption and crime, said.“Having effective reporting mechanisms in place to facilitate this is essential, and we believe that the guide on reporting mechanisms in sport, developed through our partnership with the IOC, sets out a highly effective basis to do just that.”Bach echoed O’Laoire’s sentiment, stressing the importance of cooperation between investigators and sporting bodies.“With this network of 200 trained investigators from International and National Federations, National Olympic Committees and sports disciplinary bodies, we can really go to the heart of the problem, which is having access to information as soon as possible and, in some cases, even before the problem occurs,” Bach said.“Having this investigators’ unit in place will allow us to address issues from the roots,”The IOC and the European Union Agency for Law Enforcement Cooperation (EUROPOL) also signed a Memorandum of Understanding to establish cooperation between the two organisations.“Corruption in sports is a global criminal phenomenon perpetrated by organised crime groups operating cross-border and often involved in other crimes,”  Europol’s deputy executive director, Wil van Gemertm said.“Working closely together in coalition with key partners like the IOC is crucial in the fight against corruption in sports. Combating sports corruption means not only defending the integrity of sports, but also protecting the public from criminals who cause significant damage to the safety, security and wellbeing of the EU citizens.”On 2 October, Global Lottery Monitoring System (GLMS) also encouraged countries to back the Macolin Convention, emphasising how it will help with education and prevention activities related to manipulation in sport.To date Italy, Moldova, Norway, Portugal, Switzerland and Ukraine have ratified the Macolin Convention, while a further 32 countries have signed it. While it was first published in 2014, it had to be ratified by at least five states before it could come into force. Since its introduction, however, it has been opposed by Malta, which claims its definition of illegal gambling potentially puts its licensees at risk of prosecution.The Treaty defines illegal gambling as “any sports betting activity whose type or operator is not allowed under the applicable law of the jurisdiction where the consumer is located”. Malta’s concerns ultimately blocked the Council of Europe from signing Macolin on behalf of its 28 member states.

  • Australian competition authority clears Flutter-Stars merger

    first_img Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) has granted its approval to the proposed mega-merger between Flutter Entertainment and The Stars Group (TSG).Flutter, the parent company of Paddy Power Betfair, has agreed a deal to acquire all shares in TSG and merge with the PokerStars operator to form a combined business with expected annual revenue of £3.8bn (€4.6bn/$4.9bn).The proposed deal is subject to regulator and authority approval in a number of countries, including Australia, where the ACCC gave its informal approval to the merger.However, Flutter and TSG are still required to gain approval from the Australian Foreign Investment Review Board, as well as further international regulatory bodies, in order to progress with the agreement.Earlier this month, the UK’s Competition and Markets Authority announced it was to investigate the proposed deal, and invited any parties interested in the merger to submit comments until 18 February.In addition to regulatory approval, Flutter and TSG must also give clearance to the deal, though this is not expected to happen until the second quarter of the year. At least 66% of TSG shareholders would need to vote in favour of the deal in order to proceed.Other closing conditions include approval from the FCA, London Stock Exchange and Euronext Dublin, as well as merger controls, foreign investment and gaming-related approvals in the UK, Ireland, the US and Canada.Should the deal gain all necessary approvals, Flutter and TSG said they hope to complete the deal during the second or third quarter of this year.
