GVC looks to garner state support for German transition plan

first_img GVC looks to garner state support for German transition plan AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter 26th August 2020 | By contenteditor Email Address GVC Holdings submitted a plan to German state lawmakers in which the terms of the country’s new regulatory framework for gambling would be phased in, rather than implemented in full on a set date.The operator says its model could see the Glücksspielneuregulierungstaatsvertrag (GlüNeuRStV) implemented in five stages, meaning prospective applicants would have to be fully compliant with the legislation by early 2021.Currently, the legislation is due to come into effect from 1 July that year, and remains subject to the regulations being ratified by individual states and the European Commission. Last week the standstill period, which had been due to expire on 19 August, was pushed back to 18 September after Malta submitted a detailed opinion on the framework.GVC argues that implementing the GlüNeuRStV in stages, would ensure new consumer protection standards are implemented ahead of time, while ensuring players could gamble via compliant operators rather than black market competitors.Under GVC’s plan, a comprehensive internal evaluation of each business would be carried out, to ensure it is capable of implementing all requirements set out in the legislation. Operators would then ensure their systems comply with terms of the GlüNeuRStV in five stages.Using this framework, the operator claimed, new regulatory requirements for sports betting and payments could be in place within a matter of months. Customer identification requirements, it said, could be in place within 10 weeks and new deposit limits could be implemented within three and a half months.GVC has been contacted by iGB for more clarity on what each step would entail.“The aim of the new State Treaty is to direct as many stakes as possible to regulated and state-controlled providers, because there, player protection and the fight against addiction can be guaranteed in the best possible way,” GVC director of regulatory affairs Martin Lycka said. “GVC shares this goal unreservedly.“To achieve this, gaming regulation should be transferred to the new regulatory model within the framework of what is technically possible during the transitional period until the entry into force of the new Treaty.”This process, he explained, would ensure player protection standards, and efforts to fight gambling addiction, could be enhanced in the short-term.GVC has put forward its plan at a time when German states are thought to be discussing a similar approach, in which operators offering products such as online casino would not face prosecution. iGB understands that states including Nordrhein-Westfalen, Bavaria, Hamburg and Berlin are involved in these talks.“Without such an interim solution, we would lose many customers to the predominantly non-European black market without appropriate protection standards by next summer,” Lycka warned. “This would counteract the goal of the new regulation and risk it failing to achieve its aims.” Topics: Casino & games Legal & compliance Sports betting Poker Tags: Card Rooms and Poker Mobile Online Gambling GVC Holdings submitted a plan to German state lawmakers in which the terms of the country’s new regulatory framework for gambling would be phased in, rather than implemented in full on a set date.

Affiliate Monitor: October 2020

first_img Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter There is also some optimism that the pandemic caused a greater portion of the gambling market to move online, and that this will be of long-term benefit to the industry. With sports having resumed across most of the world, there are already signs that the situation is returning to pre-crisis levels, with both casino and sports betting revenues moving back towards more historical norms. It’s harder to find the positives in bonus restrictions, however, with even the Swedish regulator conceding its Covid-19 induced bonus crackdown had possibly taken things a step too far. Add in the new bonus bans in Spain and it’s understandable that concern is mounting over the future of what has long been one of the most important tools in the affiliate toolkit.Stephen CarterEditorial director, iGB Tags: Acroud Catena Media Better Collective GiG Raketech One thing affiliates are perhaps less optimistic about is the increasing inevitability of affiliate licensing in European jurisdictions, especially the UK. But as several commentators opine in this report, this can bring benefits for affiliates.

Marketing & affiliates By and large, the results showed that affiliates had fared relatively well thanks to the heavy focus on casino among the large affiliates. In fact, rather than simply managing to cope with the crisis, the latest results shows that some thrived during it, with year-on-year revenue increases for almost all of the companies covered. The big exception was Better Collective due to its strong skew towards sports betting. The same is true of the gambling advertising restrictions that seem to be spreading across Europe.  As the experience of some affiliates in Italy shows, even with restrictive measures in place there are opportunities for affiliates. The second-quarter results of the listed affiliates were eagerly awaited as they were expected to provide a clear picture on how this sector of the gambling ecosystem had been impacted by the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. This edition of iGB’s quarterly performance marketing review considers lessons from US on licensing and the impact of ad break and bonus bans across Europe, alongside the usual drill down into the public numbers Topics: Finance Marketing & affiliates Q2 results 2020 Affiliates Affiliate Monitor: October 2020 Email Addresslast_img read more

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Image source: Getty Images Enter Your Email Address The Carnival (LSE: CCL) share price has tanked this year. Shares in the cruise giant have slumped 70% since the beginning of 2020. Following this decline, the stock looks cheap. But is the Carnival share price really undervalued at current levels, or could the stock be a value trap?Carnival share price declinesInvestors have rushed to exit the Carnival share price over the past few weeks as the cruise co’s outlook has rapidly deteriorated.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…At the beginning of the year, the group was forecasting nearly $3bn in profits for 2020. This would support a dividend yield of almost 5%, according to the company and the City. However, the coronavirus outbreak forced the company to suspend all of its operations. Management doesn’t expect to resume activities until the end of June, at the earliest. This has caused considerable financial pain. Carnival is burning through $1bn a month, even with all its ships in dock. The longer the shutdown lasts, the more money the group will burn through.The group moved quickly to save costs. It cut the dividend and suspended all unnecessary expenses.Luckily, investors have also been willing to support the organisation. At the end of March, it raised a total of $6.3bn in debt and equity from investors.There was so much demand for the company’s bond issue it was able to raise more than expected at a lower interest rate than anticipated. As the firm entered the crisis with a relatively clean balance sheet, it could take on more debt if it lasts longer than expected.On top of this positive news, it emerged a week later that Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund (PIF) has built an 8.2% stake in struggling cruise operator. This seems to be a big vote of confidence in the firm, and has helped support the Carnival share price.With more than $300bn of assets, the PIF could offer further support to Carnival if it needs it.Safe for the time beingAll the above suggests the business isn’t going to run out of money anytime soon. As such, the Carnival share price could offer an attractive risk/reward ratio, at current levels.While the company isn’t currently generating revenues, according to management, demand for cruises in the second half of the year, and into 2021, is strong. This implies that when the group starts up again, revenues could jump.In the meantime, Carnival has to stay afloat. This could be a challenge, but with investors willing to support the group, its chances of survival seem high.Still, this isn’t an investment for the faint-hearted. While management is currently planning to restart cruising in June, a second wave of the coronavirus could scupper this plan.That would be devastating for the Carnival share price. But for risk-tolerant investors, the possibility of a handsome return over the long run could make up for the short-term risks of investing.center_img With the Carnival share price this low, should I buy?

The project is located in Mohali, a satellite town of Chandigarh that is witnessing fast paced growth like most Indian cities. The brief of the client, a builder was to design a house for selling that is universal in character so that it is acceptable & appreciated by all kinds of end users ranging from a high earning professional to a wealthy farmer.Save this picture!© Purnesh Dev NikhanjThe overall concept was devised as a free plan with overlapping spaces to allow flexibility. However, the movement was choreographed so as to unfold the layers as one moves along the vertical axis of the house. The overall space is organized around a central courtyard that not only allows for light & ventilation but also serves as a means of introducing space in the interior that is excluded of the covered area regulated by building byelaws. The aim of the design i.e. to respond to universality has been adhered to by keeping in mind the principles of Vaastushastra (an ancient science that a number of users want to follow).Save this picture!© Purnesh Dev NikhanjAlthough, the overall spirit of the space is strongly Indian in character with emphasis on transcendent spaces like the verandahs & covered terraces yet the architecture vocabulary is completely contemporary with a very universal detailing. The interiors were conceived as a space defined by planes turning & intersecting while in some cases carefully sliding over each other.Save this picture!First Floor PlanAnother, important aspect of the concept was the emphasis on ambiguous boundaries which is also manifested literally in peripheral boundary walls of the project.Save this picture!© Purnesh Dev NikhanjThe dwelling unit had a total of 5 bedrooms. The ground floor houses all the public areas & 2 bedrooms while the first floor has 3 bedrooms along with a central space that is integrated with the large front covered terrace.Save this picture!© Purnesh Dev NikhanjThe material palette of the house is very restrained & neutral in the interiors.
