Investment bank West LB said it was evacuating all staff yesterday, while Commerzbank and auto manufacturer BMW offered to move staff to safer locations in the south.Several law firms closed their Tokyo offices. Insurer Chartis said its offices would be open in business hours but staff may not be able to get to the office “given planned power outages, reduced commuting options, as well as limited supplies of food.”But Japan’s International Bankers Association listed 16 banks including Barclays, Goldman Sachs and Credit Suisse in Japan that were “continuing to operate ‘business as usual’.” “Despite rumours to the contrary, none of the undersigned firms has announced any business closures or evacuation of staff,” it said.

He will take over when Peter Lewis retires after the firm’s annual general meeting in June.Bell has been a member of the Game board since 2003 and is currently the senior independent director. He has extensive retail and board experience with Ladbrokes and Allied Domecq.Lewis has been instrumental in overseeing Game’s growth over the past decade but more recently the company has been hit by competition from downloads and has been forced to rethink its business model, with an expansion into online sales. Game, with more than 1,300 stores in nine European markets and Australia, yesterday said profit before tax and one-off items dropped 58 per cent to £37.8m in the year to 31 January and it froze its final dividend at 3.9p per share, giving it an unchanged total of 5.78p.Sales at shops open over a year fell 6.7 per cent, and were down a further 12.1 per cent in the 12 weeks to 23 April. But the company said its expansion online and in second-hand products would help it cope better than rivals in a weak consumer sector. Game’s shares jumped 11.1 per cent to close at 50.25p.

US bettors eager to switch to legal sportsbooks

first_img15th August 2018 | By contenteditor US bettors eager to switch to legal sportsbooks Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter AGA-commissioned survey lifts the lid on the typical American sports bettor Sports bettingcenter_img Topics: Sports betting Tech & innovation Regions: US Almost three quarters of US punters would switch their betting activity to a regulated operator if given the opportunity.Three months since the repeal of PASPA, a new Nielsen Sports survey, commissioned by the American Gaming Association (AGA), shows that the vast majority of those currently betting illegally would seek licensed operators given the chance. Sports betting has already been introduced in New Jersey, Delaware and Mississippi since the Supreme Court’s PASPA ruling, with West Virginia, Rhode Island and Pennsylvania set to follow in the coming months. According to Nielsen Sports, 44% of sports bettors are adults under the age of 35, as opposed to 31% of the general population. Some 29% percent of bettors earn a household income of more than $100,000, almost double the proportion of the general population.It also found that 38% of existing bettors would completely switch to legal methods if they had the chance, will 33% would do so in part. Some 29% would not change their bookie regardless of legal alternatives.“The Nielsen Sports data supports what we’ve long expected: access to legal sports wagering will increase fan engagement in major sport contests and enable a significant revenue generation opportunity for major sports leagues and teams,” said Sara Slane, senior vice-president of public affairs for the American Gaming Association.“Expanding access to legal sports betting will bring millennial audiences back to sports broadcasts and stadiums, which is a huge benefit for sport enterprises across the country.“However, this potential will only be realised with proper policy frameworks that empower consumers with competitive odds, access to all bets and the ability to tap into modern platforms including mobile. Without this focus on consumers, the illegal market will continue to thrive.”Nielsen Sports surveyed more than 1,000 adult sports fans – including fans of the NFL, MLB, NBA and NHL – and self-identified sports bettors nationwide, identifying demographics and consumption habits to quantify the value of the legal sports betting market.In data that is food for thought for the sports leagues, the AGA discovered that bettors tend to be younger, more affluent and better educated than average fans. Some 62% of NFL fans who are bettors went to college and 31% earn more than $100,000, compared to figures of 58% and 23% of non-betting fans.Among NBA fans, 54% of bettors are aged between 18-34 while 30% earn more than $100,000 compared to 40% and 26% among non-betting fans. The NBA last month signed up MGM Resorts as its official betting partner. Image: Erin Khoo Email Addresslast_img read more

Italy iGaming Dashboard – November 2018

first_img Casino surged to its highest ever monthly GGR in Italy last month with poker also up as iGB extends its market share coverage in ring games and tournaments Tags: Card Rooms and Poker Online Gambling 12th November 2018 | By Joanne Christie Topics: Casino & games Finance Sports betting Bingo Poker Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Regions: Europe Southern Europe Italy Bingo After a surge at the beginning of the Italian football season, Italy’s sports betting market dropped off slightly last month and was down significantly when compared with last October.Online sports betting GGR fell to €56.90m in October, down from September’s €60.45m and last October’s €77.74m, representing a more than 25% year-on-year drop.Casino, on the other hand, saw its highest ever monthly GGR, with the €64.91m in GGR last month representing a more than 10% jump on the previous month and an almost 25% rise on the same month the previous year.This saw the market swing back to a position where casino is the largest online vertical in Italy, with 47.52% of the market compared with 41.65% for sports betting.Overall, total online GGR rose to €136.6m from €132.6 the previous month. Although this was a rise on the previous month, the disappointing sports betting figures saw the overall market fall nearly 6% year-on-year.Bet365 regained its lead in online sports betting, but looking at the leading operators when land-based revenue is included, it’s clear the online giant faces challenges once the advertising ban comes into play in January.While Bet365 holds 15.9% of the online sports betting market, once land-based revenue is included its share drops to 6.8%, with Snai, Planetwin365 and Eurobet leading the combined pack.Given these operators will continue to be able to leverage their retail presence once the ban is in effect, it will be interesting to see how much more ground they gain over the online-only operators next year. There was some rare good news in the poker market in Italy last month, with GGR for both tournament and cash poker rising on the month and poker’s share of the igaming market nudging back towards 5% for tournaments and 4% for cash games.This month we’ve expanded our market share breakdown of the poker market to show the top five operators for tournaments and the top 10 operators for cash games. PokerStars remains the leader in both markets, though its lead fell slightly last month in both areas.Click on the drop down options below to compare how Italy’s igaming market has performed on a monthly or annual basis.

Japan joins the fray

first_img One of the most anticipated events of the year will be the process to select the operators and cities for Japan’s three integrated resorts, which will see the country’s first commercial casinos open. Ayako Nakayama, chief executive of the Japan Integrated Resort Association (JIRA), discusses the current state of affairsCan you begin by giving us an update on the progress of regulations? Has everything remained on schedule? Integrated resorts (IR) legislative progress has been progressed almost according to schedule. Basic regulations, together with the Japanese Casino Regulatory Commission Preparation Office, were launched in 2019, with an official launch early this year. [Editor’s note: since this interview, it appears the official launch has been pushed back, possbily due to an alleged briberly scandal] Osaka, one of the leading candidate locations, started the request for proposal (RFP) process in December 2019 and other locations will most likely follow in starting their own RFPs in early to mid-2020.The formation of the Casino Management Committee is now set to be finalised by the end of January 2020, which appears to be around six months later than originally planned. How transparent has the government been as to why this was? Can you explain why it has taken longer than anticipated? The delay was caused due to the national Upper House election, which took place in July 2019. During the election, IR-related processes were suspended. Based on JIRA’s understanding, the industry sees this as minor delay which was inevitable due to the national political event. As head of the Japanese Integrated Resort Association, what is your view on the government’s handling of the entire regulatory process? Although JIRA is not in a position to evaluate the validity of the regulatory process, it appears to have gone as expected. That said, the dynamics of the IR space have been changing day by day. There are two different government bodies that will regulate and manage Japanese IR. First is the Japan Casino Regulatory Commission, which handles casino and IR operators. Second is International Tourism Board, which operates under the MLIT (Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism). This organisation handles non-gaming aspects such as choosing the locations of the resorts. These new dynamics will influence the future of Japanese IR, and JIRA will continue to work to assess and understand its fundamental structure to collaborate and achieve our objectives to create a strong industry.Do you feel that appropriate responsible gambling safeguards are being developed in tandem with the regulations? Do you feel the entry fees for residents and mandated RG programmes are sufficient? Current responsible gaming controls that have been published are only for basic requirements, which were set at the early stage of the regulatory process. JIRA and related organisations in the industry are waiting for more details of specific regulations. Japan has other forms of gambling besides casino, such as government-controlled offerings including horse racing, motor boat racing and Pachinko, which are already subject to responsible gambling safeguards. These will remain important elements to consider in the development of responsible gambling strategy in the country.The validity of such responsible gambling countermeasures is difficult to assess at this moment, yet it’s certain that this area could have a major potential impact in industry perception. It must be considered very carefully for further discussion, from topics such as the application of technology to region-specific measures. How is JIRA looking to influence and coordinate members’ social responsibility strategies? JIRA is taking an initiative to facilitate social responsibility through sustainable development goals (SDGs).SDGs are one of the widely understood concepts across many industries in Japan and internationally. We think this concept could help communicate integrated resorts’ potential social responsibility efforts with various industries, as well as to citizens.  JIRA will continue to support the concept of SDGs so that more companies in the industry implement such concepts in both the private sector’s development plans, and in the location requirement plans.Looking at other jurisdictions that have established integrated resorts, such as Macau and Singapore, how is JIRA (and the prospective IR operators) working to understand what has worked and what hasn’t there? The Japanese government put specific requirements and regulations which IR operators must comply with to bid for casino/IR licences in Japan. Based on the previous and ongoing processes of the government’s research and consideration, international gaming/IR practices have been evaluated and assessed to create the ‘Japan way’ of regulation. From JIRA’s perspective, we respect such processes yet we are aware of future international perspectives which the government needs to take into account. JIRA will work with its stakeholders to accommodate such perspectives.  After Hokkaido said it would not immediately push for a resort as a result of concerns of its impact on the local environment, are you concerned that other potential locations may follow? How can operators, the government and JIRA address these concerns? Hokkaido’s withdrawal from the IR race could influence other locations in terms of the risk attached with the municipality’s decision-making processes. Hokkaido’s regional diet has a majority of Liberal Democratic Party members – which is the current ruling party of Japan – yet the governor decided not to pursue one of the three licences due to environmental concerns. This illustrates the potential complications caused by regional politics in Japan.What happens next in the process? Do you feel the first venues will be completed by 2024-25 as previously stated? After the establishment of the Japan Casino Regulatory Commission on 7 January, the rest of the year will see most regional cities interested in integrated resorts start RFP processes. This will begin around April, with operators selected in order to develop a proposal to submit to MLIT by July 2021.The first phase of Japan IR will have up to three venues licensed, which will open around 2026. It’s been said that the opening of the integrated resorts will see Japan quickly become one of the biggest gambling markets worldwide. Do you agree? JIRA agrees that the Japanese market has significant potential, with some of the most modern facilities in the world and billions in investment helping it attract a large number of tourists to the country. That said, Japan will soon face international competition that will challenge the market. The requirement for cultural elements in the resorts will make the venues unique from other facilities around the world.From JIRA’s perspective, the ability of Japan IR to attract VIP customers will also be a crucial aspect for its success in the world market. I personally believe the real market strength of Japan IR can only be evaluated several years after the market opens. As the Japan IR Association, we would like to make as much effort to ensure the future market and Japanese resorts are among the leading destinations worldwide.Ayako Nakayama has engaged in a wide range of integrated resorts industry initiatives, including the establishment of Japan IR Association for the purpose of building and promoting the sector. JIRA aims to initiate cross-border collaboration within and outside the industry, both domestically and internationally, with Nakayama, its chief executive, delivering many lectures about Japan IR at various international conferences. 27th February 2020 | By Stephen Carter Email Address Japan joins the fray Casino & games Topics: Casino & gamescenter_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Regions: Asia Japan One of the most anticipated events of the year will be the process to select the operators and cities for Japan’s three integrated resorts, which will see the country’s first commercial casinos open.

XLMedia to reduce headcount in strategic overhaul

first_img XLMedia to reduce headcount in strategic overhaul Tags: Online Gambling XLMedia has concluded a strategic review that will see the affiliate marketing business “streamline” a number of roles and functions across the business, resulting in annual cost savings of more than $5m (£4.1m/€4.6m).While the business did not provide any indication on how many roles would be cut – and how many staff let go – as part of this process, it said the restructuring reflected its focus on four short-term investment priorities.This will see XLMedia enhance its operating model to support future growth, as well as using data and programmatic learning to improve customer experience. It will also look to expand its US sports and personal finance businesses by investing in infrastructure and additional resource, supported by M&A, as well as expanding its existing verticals into new markets.These priorities in turn will see the business look to use more automation and outsourcing, and increase its editorial output.This restructuring has already seen Sarah Clark, who joined XLMedia in February as chief transformation officer, appointed chief operational officer. Clark will focus on developing the company’s strategy, evolving the shared services model and driving operational efficiencies.Meanwhile, Xen Lategan will serve as an interim technology consultant, with a remit of supporting the re-platforming of de-ranked websites and overseeing the re-organisation of the technology group.Some 107 XLMedia sites were demoted in Google’s search rankings in January of this year, with the affiliate group saying that the demotion was done manually.“I joined XLMedia with the clear intention to orientate the company towards a balanced portfolio of premium branded sites, in verticals and markets that deliver sustainable revenue growth,” chief executive Stuart Simms said of the restructuring.“To support this transformation, we have been working diligently to augment our leadership team and operating structure, as well as to right-size the resources required for our business to operate most efficiently.”XLMedia said the changes would result in more than $5.0m in annual savings, but added that the savings in 2020 would be largely offset by investments.“Our transformation plan continues to gather momentum, and I am pleased to share our progress with all our major stakeholders, alongside welcoming new talent to the business,” Simms said.The announcement also comes after XLMedia last month reported a 14.8% year-on-year revenue in 2019 to $79.7m, while an $81.4m impairment loss meant the group made an overall net loss for the year.
