Scientific lands Delaware Lottery sports betting contract

first_img Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Topics: Sports betting Tech & innovation AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Email Address Scientific Games has agreed to implement the Delaware Lottery’s expansion to full-scale sports betting after the US state moved to legalise such activities. Last week, Delaware became the first state to regulate sports betting in the wake of the Supreme Court’s ruling on the federal 1992 Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA). PASPA had blocked states from regulating sports wagering, with the exception of Nevada, Oregon, Delaware and Montana, but the Supreme Court in May opted to overturn the Act and open up the market to other states. Scientific Games will provide the Delaware Lottery with various sports wagering technology, content and managed services. The Delaware Lottery is due to launch full-scale sports betting from tomorrow (Tuesday). “In anticipation of the Supreme Court’s ruling on PASPA, we have been working with Scientific Games, our long-time sports betting provider, as well as training our lottery and casino staff, so that we were ready to launch full-scale, head-to-head betting on single games,” Delaware Lottery director Vernon Kirk said. Pat McHugh, senior vice-president, global lottery systems at Scientific Games, added: “Since Delaware is known as ‘The First State’, it’s appropriate they were the first in the nation to expand regulated sports betting after the PASPA ruling. “The combination of Scientific Games and NYX Gaming Group earlier this year created a global leader across iLottery, iGaming and sports betting that offers unrivalled capabilities to lotteries worldwide. “As an integrated company, we are ready to serve our customers like the Delaware Lottery with the gaming entertainment industry’s leading sports platforms, content and services.” Meanwhile, West Virginia could be set to legalise sports betting before the end of the month. ESPN writer David Payne Purdum said in a Twitter post the officials in the state hope to regulate such activities within 30 days. Purdum quoted unnamed sources as saying: “Our goal is to be up and running in time for [NFL American] football season.”Related article: Delaware legalises sports betting Regions: US Delawarecenter_img Sports betting Scientific Games has agreed to implement the Delaware Lottery’s expansion to full-scale sports betting after the US state moved to legalise such activities 4th June 2018 | By contenteditor Scientific lands Delaware Lottery sports betting contractlast_img read more

Caesars CEO to step down

first_img Email Address Mark Frissora will remain in the role until February 8 Regions: US Caesars Entertainment Corporation has begun its search for a new chief executive after it was confirmed that Mark Frissora is to stand down from the role early next year. Frissora will continue as CEO and president until February 8, with Caesars to seek a replacement in the time being.Frissora took on the role at Caesars in July 2015 having initially come on board in January, just two days after the firm filed for bankruptcy. He went on to successfully steer the company through some of its most turbulent times.Prior to joining Caesars, Frissora was chairman and CEO of vehicle rental firm Hertz Global 2006 until late 2014, and also had a six-year spell as chairman and CEO of Tenneco, a global supplier of automotive emission control and ride control products.“I have been privileged to lead this iconic company and am proud of all that our team has accomplished,” Frissora said, “We have improved our margins significantly and created enterprise value which enabled the successful reorganisation of our Caesars Entertainment Operating Company subsidiary. “I am confident that the company is well positioned to thrive and grow in the future. I am committed to maintaining stability and operating discipline during this transition.” During his time at the helm of Caesars, Frissora has implemented strategies that have led to a 900 basis points increase in adjusted EBITDAR margin, as well as a near-$800m (£614.7m/€699.1m) increase in adjusted EBITDAR. Frissora has also helped the company cut the cost of its debt by 400 basis points and enabled it to expand into markets such as Dubai and Mexico.Jim Hunt, chairman of the board at Caesars, praised Frissora’s time as CEO: “Under Mark’s leadership, the company has significantly improved margins and profitability while simultaneously increasing customer and employee satisfaction. “We are grateful for his leadership and numerous contributions and are optimistic for the future.” Confirmation of Frissora’s departure came as the company reported its financial results for the third quarter, during which net revenue rocketed by $1.99bn to $2.19bn. This was due to the inclusion of the results from CEOC, which emerged from bankruptcy in Q4 of 2017, and the results of the Centaur Holdings business that Caesars acquired in July this year. Operating profit increased by 176% year-on-year to $232m, while net income attributable to Caesars came in at $110m, compared to a net loss of $433m in the corresponding period year. Elsewhere, Caesars was this week unveiled as the first founding partner of the Las Vegas Stadium, the future home of the Las Vegas Raiders NFL American football franchise. Caesars plans to use the link-up to offer special customer experiences. In recent days, Caesars has also announced partnerships with the NFL’s Baltimore Ravens, the Philadelphia 76ers NBA basketball franchise and the New Jersey Devils NHL ice hockey team.Image: Mark P.

I think these 3 shares will hold up in a bear market

first_img Enter Your Email Address Andy Ross | Tuesday, 10th March, 2020 | More on: NG SSE TSCO Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” The FTSE 100 has fallen over 15% this year. Much of that loss has been in the last couple of weeks as fears over coronavirus grow.Pulled down with the restI think SSE (LSE: SSE), which is down 7.5% over one month, is one company that should hold up better in a bear market. Many FTSE 100 share prices have fallen over 20% in the last month. So SSE shares haven’t done too badly, all things being considered. 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…The predictable nature of SSE’s regulated earnings and the prospects it has from investing in renewable energy at a time when demand is increasing and costs are coming down is attractive. I think when markets stabilise the dividend will be very attractive to investors and the shares will bounce back.The shares had been flying up until recently and have still gained value over the last 12 months, as investors have caught onto the potential from renewables. The company has also offloaded its consumer arm to Ovo Energy. Given the good performance until the recent market crash I have high hopes for SSE.Exiting AsiaTesco (LSE: TSCO) shares are down 6% over one month. If it wasn’t for the wider market slump, I think the news that Tesco had agreed an £8.2bn deal for its 2,000 stores across Malaysia and Thailand would have seen the shares rise. It’s a good deal as the group continues to slim down and focus on improving margins. The deal means Tesco will no longer have interests outside of Europe.Industries such as tourism and insurance and companies with a big presence in China will understandably be effected by the coronavirus and see their share prices plunge. It’s harder to see why that would be the case at Tesco. Indeed, people stockpiling may give a short-term boost to the retailer.Tesco is now a better run business than it was five years ago and I think investors should hold onto the shares. All things considered, the shares are performing well and are now just a little cheaper.A third solid company for troubled timesThe share price of National Grid (LSE: NG) has fallen 5% over the last month. Up until mid-February the shares had spent six months on the charge, rising from around 800p in early September 2019 to top 1,050p in mid-Feb 2020. National Grid shares have only fallen because the rest of the market has, but not by as much.Similarly to SSE, National Grid is a very defensive share to own, making it a reliable company to invest in during turbulent times. The shares yield 5% and have increased year on year. With cost-cutting targeting £50m cost savings in the UK and $30m in the US the dividend should be safe.Growth comes from the US where the utility operator has managed to grow operating profit in the solid double digits. This company also has no exposure to Asia, still, the region most affected by coronavirus to date. Fundamentally the shares are worth owning, particularly in a bear market. I think these 3 shares will hold up in a bear market Andy Ross owns shares in National Grid. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Tesco.

The stones will be given to attendees of a memorial service on campus March 9. Photo/Episcopal School of Jacksonville[Episcopal News Service] While students at Episcopal School of Jacksonville, Florida, gathered March 8 to paint river rocks to help them grieve the murder of Head of School Dale Regan two days earlier, details began to emerge about the former teacher who shot her and then killed himself.Regan often spoke to students at the grade 6-12 school about river rocks as a metaphor for steps along the path of life. The 3,000 stones will be distributed at a “Celebration Memorial Service” planned for March 9 on campus. The students met on the campus Flag Plaza to paint the stones and carefully array them on the steps of the plaza.Regan, 63, died in the early afternoon March 6, a few hours after she had been involved in firing Shane Schumerth, 28, a Spanish teacher at the school. He returned to campus with an AK-47 in a guitar case, went to her office and shot Regan several times before killing himself, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s office.Regan had been at Episcopal for 34 years, teaching English before she became head of school.The school said in a statement that Schumerth was “failing to meet the expectations of the school and was repeatedly counseled for issues associated with attendance and a lack of timeliness in complying with the requirements of the position.”The “separation meeting,” the statement said, was held away from students and with a witness.“The employee was informed of the decision to separate in the most compassionate way possible and was offered separation pay,” the statement continued.The Very Rev. Kate Moorehead, dean of St. John’s Episcopal Cathedral in Jacksonville and vice-chair of the school’s board of trustees, said in the statement that Regan “dearly loved her faculty. She was always intent on not only addressing a situation legally, but in ensuring that we considered the personal impact on the employee. She lived her faith in the way that she led the school.”Schumerth made no threat during the meeting but the school followed its standard practice of escorting him off the campus and informing the security force, which placed a guard at the entrance of the school, according to the statement.Three roads lead to the school and some have gates, according to the Jacksonvile Florida Times-Union newspaper. The school, which has a full time director of safety and security, uses video surveillance and security gates as well as a digital patrol check system that ensures patrols are completed, the school said in its statement.Meanwhile, the newspaper reported that Schumerth brought with him nearly 100 rounds of ammunition for an AK-47 assault rifle he purchased at a Jacksonville gun show early last month. The newspaper attributed the information to an unnamed police source familiar with the investigation.In the semi-automatic version of the rifle a 7.62mm bullet out of a chamber is typically fed from a 30-round clip attached to the bottom of the rifle. Officials said that an AK-47 was a fairly common military weapon and that civilian models can be purchased in gun shops for $400-$500.It’s unlikely anyone will ever know why Shane Schumerth chose Regan as his only target, shooting her as many as 10 times before killing himself, the newspaper’s source said. Investigators have yet to find a note or other indication as to Schumerth’s motive, said the source, who the newspaper said not been authorized to speak publicly about the case.The campus is closed until March 19, in part because spring break had previously been scheduled for the week of March 12. School officials have been providing grief counseling on campus and meetings between students and teachers.Jane Goodwin, whose daughter Casey is in seventh grade, told the Times-Union that the school’s response to the tragedy has reinforced that Episcopal is a good place for Casey.“They kept us updated, and all kinds of faculty have been available to help our kids,” Goodwin said. “It is shocking, but I have no reservations about how it was handled.”Students, parents, alumni and friends of Regan and the school, as well as school officials from all over the country, are leaving condolences on the school’s blog as well as on its Facebook page and elsewhere.“The faculty and students of the Fountain Valley School of Colorado join with their colleagues and peers at Episcopal School and across the nation to mourn this terrible loss of life and leadership. May you find strength together as you celebrate Dale’s life and carry on her good work,” Fountain Valley School of Colorado Headmaster Craig W. Larimer wrote on the school’s blog.Barbara Hodge, executive director of the Florida Council of Independent Schools, in a message to heads of schools in the council, wrote that Regan, who was president of the group, “would have reached out to comfort, to support, to lift up, and to unify the community” in such a situation. Hodges urged FCIS members to “follow the model that Dale beautifully unfolded for us.” She also called for a moment of silence at 11 a.m. EST March 9 as the memorial service at Episcopal begins.Elizabeth Bell Canon called Regan “the person who saw more in me than I saw in myself.”“Because of her, I began to believe that I was capable of mastering truly challenging tasks related to writing and language,” she wrote on the blog. “I ultimately chose a path that led me to become a teacher – and that would not have been doable without her influence at a critical point in my life. Thank you, Mrs. Regan. I promise that I will spend the rest of my professional life trying to live up to the example you set for me when I was a 17 year old girl.”A Times-Union columnist, Mark Woods, wrote March 8 about a Dec. 2010 email Regan sent him after he had written about some Episcopal parents who filed a lawsuit after the school lost a football playoff game. Regan and the school made it clear they wanted no part of the suit and had told the parents and their employees just that.“As you can imagine this has not been the best week for me or our school,” Regan wrote in the email that Woods said were now chilling, powerful and poignant. “No school head would be proud to have their school on the front pages as ours has been this week. But, I really want to thank you for your article. Again, I wish an Episcopal parent and employee weren’t part of your subject, but rightfully they were. And your message was excellent.”Regan went on to say that “children are precious and important, but parenting needs to be patient, level-headed, loving and long-ranged rather than a ‘let me see what I can do to make everything all right for you,’” she wrote, adding that parents, educators and coaches have to be partners in “teach[ing] life lessons that sometimes are difficult.”— The Rev.

Government targets opposition papers

first_img Reporters Without Borders strongly protested today at official harassment of the opposition media, including four newspapers that printed allegedly “unprofessional” articles about President Heidar Aliev. It said it feared legal, propaganda and physical attacks on journalists and the media would increase in the run-up to presidential elections in October.The state prosecutor’s office today warned the papers -Yeni Musavat, Hurriyet, Azadlig and Milliyet – that they had violated the press law by publishing the articles. Also today, police refused to investigate a 4 May attack on the staff of Yeni Musavat in which several of them were injured. “So far the opposition press has mainly been a target of systematic legal harassment aimed at bankrupting it, with Yeni Musavat facing as many as 14 libel cases,” said Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard in a letter to interior minister Ramil Usubov. “But the latest warning, just two days after the attack on the paper, and the police refusal to investigate, is much more serious. We ask you to open an enquiry into the attack and see that all harassment of the opposition press ceases.”A gang of about 30 men attacked the offices of Yeni Musavat on the evening of 4 May, threatening to kill editor Rauf Arifoglu, who was not there, and causing extensive damage. Assistant editor Gabil Abbasoglu and journalists Elshad Pashasoy, Samir Azizoglu and Khalid Kazimli were injured. One journalist called police, who later arrested four people but did not charge them with anything.The attackers told journalists not to write any more about Aliev’s precarious state of health and to stop criticising the authorities. Arifoglu said police protection of the office, begun three days before, was withdrawn two hours before the attack. The journalists had anticipated the attack and asked for a police guard after government officials had called for the paper to be “punished” and after articles appeared in the government press accusing Yeni Musavat of being an “enemy of the nation” for calling on Aliev to resign for health reasons. Police seized 1,800 copies of the paper’s Russian-language edition at the Viza-Media printers in Baku on 2 May and arrested four journalists – including Azer Aykhan, Firdovsi Akhmedov and Sayyad Gadirli – and the head of the printing works, Aliovst Talishkhanly, and two other workers there for publishing “anti-government” material. The authorities have been harassing firms distributing newspapers in the Baku subway system since 21 April. Sakit Hasanli, head of the organisation Press Development Aid, subway officials have refused to sign a new three-month distribution contract with the Said and Mars-3 companies if the four opposition papers are included.
