Tags: Mobile Online Gambling OTB and Betting Shops Slot Machines Topics: Casino & games Legal & compliance Lottery Sports betting Slots Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter 12th March 2019 | By contenteditor Sweden’s gambling regulator Spelinspektionen has revealed that a total of 116 licences have been awarded for the country’s re-regulated gaming market, with more than half covering online casino.Operators have been able to apply for licences since August 2018, with the first certifications awarded on November 30 that year, ahead of the market opening on January 1, 2019.From that date to March 11, 2019, 62 of the 116 licences awarded cover online casino and slots, ahead of the second most-popular sports betting vertical, for which 44 licences have been issued.A further five licences have been granted for land-based commercial gaming, including restaurant casinos. This includes the market’s most recent licensee, CM Casino. Two entities – Paf and Bell Casino – have also been licensed to offer gambling on ships.Svenska Spel has also secured a trio of licences for its monopoly activities, with one covering lottery games, one for land-based slot machines and one for its Casino Cosmopol subsidiary.In total 72 operators have been awarded licences, meaning many are active in more than one vertical.While figures for the first quarter of regulated igaming in Sweden are yet to be published, analyst Kristoffer Lindström of Redeye has suggested that companies active in the popular casino vertical are likely to be impacted by Svenska Spel’s entry. Lindström noted that the operator had aggressively marketed its new casino offering, while Google search trends suggested the product has attracted significant volumes in the early stages of the market.“As Svenska Spel Casino Online now offers the same games as the other operators, it looks like at least some of the players chooses to play at the site, which obviously will hurt the customer intake and volumes for the other operators,” Lindström explained.This, he said, could make Swedish operations particularly difficult for smaller businesses already having to contend with strict regulations and the market’s 18% tax rate.

Enter Your Email Address See all posts by Royston Wild I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Royston Wild has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Redrow. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Of the many brilliant big-yielding shares that UK investors can buy today, Vistry Group (LSE: VTY) is one that I’d happily load up on right now.It remains to be seen whether the ‘Boris Bounce’ that has boosted property transactions since mid-December will last given ongoing Brexit uncertainty. Regardless, I reckon the housebuilders like Vistry should continue to make progress in 2020 and beyond.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…Formerly known as Bovis Homes, trading at the FTSE 250 firm remained strong throughout the last year. The positive contribution of cheap loans and the government’s Help To Buy purchase scheme helped the company post record profits last year. Business has been so strong, in fact, that Vistry said profits would sail past market expectations. It witnessed what it described as a “significant step up” in average weekly sales rates, to 0.58 from 0.5 in 2018. But of course, it’s not the only housebuilder to have released blockbuster trading numbers in recent weeks.Building things upIt’s no wonder that these construction colossi are making big plans to turbocharge production rates. Indeed, latest industry data underlined the strength of appetite for Vistry and its peers to capitalise on this fertile environment.According to the National House Building Council (NHBC), some 161,022 homes were registered to be built in Britain in 2019. This was up 1% from the previous year and was the highest level since 2007. The news is significant because NHBC new home registrations account for four-fifths of all homes created in the UK.Vistry certainly has plans to light a fire under build rates in the short-to-medium term. The acquisition of Linden Homes from Galliford Try, completed at the turn of the year, gives it the capacity to build a whopping 12,000 homes per year.Another top traderLatest trading numbers just released from Vistry’s FTSE 250 peer Redrow illustrate the strength of the market too. While its total order book was flat at around £1.2bn as of December, the value of its private net reservations on its books soared 18% year-on-year to £936m.Moreover, it said that trading has been “resilient” in the first five weeks of 2020. The value of its reservations rose 15% at £180m, it added.Stunning value, big dividendsGiven recent news flow, it’s understandable that City brokers remain quite upbeat over the robustness of the industry. It also explains why they have been upgrading their forecasts over recent weeks again. Expectations that 2020 earnings will rise by mid-single-digit percentages at the tail end of last year have given way to predictions that profits will boom 23% this year.Improved sentiment towards Vistry has shoved its share price 17% higher in the past month alone. And the high chance of more upgrades to broker estimates means that more gains could be in the offing. Combine this with a cheap forward P/E ratio of 10.6 times and smashing 5.5% dividend yield and I reckon the business is a top buy right now.

He served on the City Council for 24 years and retired in 2018 as the vice mayor of Apopka – the city he loves. Prior to his political career, Mr. Dean was a teacher in the Orange County school system, including terms at Phillis Wheatley and Apopka High School. He was beloved by his students, many of whom are community leaders today.Apopka Commissioner Billie Dean Mr. Dean also served in the military during the Korean War, earning the Bronze Star for his heroism on the battlefield while a member of the US Army. Mr. Dean lived through a tumultuous time in American history that saw his family flee their home in northern Florida to avoid the threat of a lynching. His story is an unlikely tale of hard work, determination, perseverance and ultimately success in an era that did not see many blacks prosper. It would be a shame to see this story of a true Apopka hero fade away. With that in mind Reggie Connell, Managing Editor and Publisher of The Apopka Voice, has been given permission by Mr. and Mrs. Dean to write his biography, which is in the beginning stages and entitled:“An unlikely icon: The life and times of Apopka Commissioner Billie Dean”This is the first in a series of biographies to honor the men that shaped Apopka by remembering the amazing lives they led, their success, and service to their community.As with anything, there are expenses in writing a book, and the project is offering Apopka businesses as well as the community who know and love Mr. Dean the opportunity to sponsor this project.In return, you or your business will be featured in excerpts of the book, published on The Apopka Voice news site, and thanked personally in the acknowledgments section of a book that will be in the homes of Apopka readers for generations to come. Connell, who has written and published a successful novel previously, estimates a 12-month process to research, write, and publish Mr. Dean’s life story – projecting a publishing date of January of 2020.If you would like to be a part of this project, please contact The Apopka Voice at 407/437-5654 or [email protected] You may also contact Monique Morris, who is in charge of fundraising for the project.

This was the fourth consecutive month that begin with higher gas prices; each one with an average increase of 7-12 cents. “It’s not uncommon for gas prices to suddenly jump at the end/beginning of the month,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “That’s because many retailers enter into new monthly contracts on fuel deliveries, which can come with a higher price tag. When retailers pass the added cost to the consumer, they do it at the start of the month, then allow the market to dictate the direction of prices from there. The good news for drivers is that during the past few months, we’ve seen fuel prices trickle lower as the month progresses.”Prices at the pump could follow the same trend as last month. September began with the state average suddenly rising to $2.20 per gallon. By the end of the month, the state average slid back down to $2.09.On average, September was the most expensive month at the pump since March. The monthly average price in September was $2.15 per gallon. That’s 5 cents per gallon more than what drivers paid in August, yet 30 cents per gallon less than what drivers paid in September 2019.Today drivers are back to paying $2.19 per gallon. The state average is 9 cents more than a week ago and 1-cent less than this time last month. Despite the recent increase, drivers are still paying 30 cents per gallon less than this time last year.Regional PricesMost expensive metro markets – West Palm Beach ($2.29), Port St. Lucie ($2.22), Ocala ($2.22)Least expensive metro markets – Tallahassee ($2.09), Crestview ($2.12), Pensacola ($2.13)Find Florida Gas PricesDaily gas price averages can be found at Gasprices.aaa.com State and metro averages can be found here SundaySaturdayWeek AgoMonth AgoOne Year AgoRecord High AAA GAS PRICE AVERAGES(Price per gallon of regular unleaded gasoline) The Anatomy of Fear Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.

SyriaMiddle East – North Africa Toll of ten years of civil war on journalists in Syria August 9, 2012 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Mazen Darwish to be tried by special military court Follow the news on Syria February 3, 2021 Find out more RSF_en Wave of Kurdish arrests of Syrian journalists News Syria’s airforce intelligence service refused to comply with a judge’s request to produce Mazen Darwish, the head of the Syrian Centre for Media and Freedom of Expression (SCM), in court on 6 August, at a hearing for those arrested during a raid on the centre’s Damascus headquarters on 16 February.In a letter to the court, the airforce intelligence service simply said that the SCM had been operating without permission.Darwish, of whom there has been no news since his arrest, will therefore be tried by a special military court that holds its hearings behind closed doors at military police headquarters in the northeastern Damascus district of Qabon. It does not allow defendants to be represented by a lawyer, its proceedings are completely secret and its sentences are carried out immediately.The judge presiding the 6 August hearing also rejected requests by lawyers to defend the eight other defendants – Yara Badr, Razan Ghazzawi, Mayada Khalil, Sana Zetani, Hussein Gharir, Hani Zetani, Mansour Al-Omari and Abdel Rahman Hamada – and adjourned the case until 29 August. The last four – Hussein Gharir, Hani Zetani, Mansour Al-Omari and Abdel Rahman Hamada – are, like Darwish, being held incommunicado. Reporters Without Borders calls on the Syrian authorities to reveal where they are being held.”Arbitrary arrests and holding political prisoners incommunicado constitute blatant violations of international law and are tantamount to enforced disappearances,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The courts are no longer taking the trouble to maintain even a facade of legality. Darwish, Gharir, Zetani, Al-Omari and Hamada must be freed together with all the other professional and citizen journalists arrested since the start of the conflict.” In an interview for the Syria-politic.com news website, lawyer and human rights activist Michel Shammas has expressed deep concern about the fate of Darwish and the other people who worked with the SCM. He also pointed out that it is still not known what charges they are facing.Reporters Without Borders has meanwhile also learned that the artist and activist Kafah Ali Dib and the activist Rami Al-Hanawi were arrested yesterday in the Damascus suburb of Sahnayia by members of “popular committees” working for the security services. Dib is now reportedly being held at the security department’s “Palestine” section.The filmmaker Bassam Mohieddine Hossein was murdered near his home in Jdayet Artooz, a southwestern district of the capital, on 5 August. Born in the coastal city of Tartus in 1955, he had been working for the State Cinema Agency since 1984.

Time is pressing, 20 years after Burkinabe journalist’s murder October 30, 2017 Zongo murder: France urged to extradite deposed president’s brother Burkina FasoFranceAfricaEurope – Central Asia Condemning abuses ImpunityViolence News June 8, 2021 Find out more Organisation Reporters Without Borders (RSF) hails the arrest of former Burkina Faso President Blaise Compaoré’s brother yesterday in Paris in connection with the 1998 murder of the well-known investigative journalist Norbert Zongo and urges the French authorities to extradite him to his homeland. François Compaoré, the deposed president’s younger brother and onetime adviser, was arrested under an international warrant after disembarking from a plane in Roissy Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris. Aged 63 and now a resident of Côte d’Ivoire, François Compaoré has been wanted by Burkina Faso’s authorities on a charge of “inciting murders” since May. Three other people were murdered along with Zongo. “Nearly 19 years later, it is high time that Burkina Faso’s judicial authorities completed their investigation and established the truth about this appalling murder,” RSF said. “We count on the French courts and executive to lose no time in approving Burkina Faso’s extradition request so that its judicial authorities can question François Compaoré as soon as possible. His compatriots have a right to know who instigated Norbert Zongo’s murder. Truth and justice in this case is desired not only by Zongo’s family but also by the entire population, which wants an end to the impunity of the Compaoré era.” Zongo was an investigative reporter who edited a weekly called the L’Indépendant. His shot and burned body was found in his gutted car around 100 km south of Ouagadougou on 13 December 1998. Three other bodies were also found in the car. At the time of his death, Zongo had been investigating the death in detention of François Compaoré’s driver. RSF, which participated in a commission of enquiry in December 1998, repeatedly condemned the political pressure on those investigating the murder, which led to the case being dismissed in 2006. It was reopened in March 2015, during the political transition that followed Blaise Compaoré’s overthrow after 27 years as president. Burkina Faso is ranked 42nd out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index.
