Why GB online gambling affiliates should not be licensed

first_img Tags: Online Gambling Topics: Legal & compliance Marketing & affiliates Why GB online gambling affiliates should not be licensed Email Address Thomas Jones, founder of BingoSites.co.uk, says that licensing affiliates would likely only benefit the largest publishers and force small but great sites out of the market. Legal & compliance AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter 7th July 2020 | By contenteditor Regions: UK & Ireland Thomas Jones, founder of BingoSites.co.uk, says that licensing affiliates would likely only benefit the largest publishers and force small but great sites out of the market. A second piece, this time from the perspective of an affiliate supportive of a licensing regime, will follow tomorrow.The Responsible Affiliates in Gambling (RAiG) trade association’s announcement that it supports the introduction of a registration and licensing regime for affiliates in Great Britain has absolutely divided the online gambling affiliate community.The RAiG and its members – some of the largest affiliate marketing organisations in the industry – argues that requiring affiliates to register and obtain a licence would ultimately provide peace of mind to players and ensure they are properly protected.While this is something that all reputable affiliates support, the method of licencing affiliates is not necessarily the best way of achieving this and, undoubtedly, would benefit the large publishers that make up the bulk of RAiG members while putting smaller affiliates at a disadvantage.The likes of Better Collective and Natural Intelligence have substantial resources and funds at their disposal and in some cases have already been through the licensing process in other markets such as the US. Small affiliates and one man bands are in a very different position.That’s not to say that affiliates do not need to do more to ensure they are marketing to players responsibly because they do, but I just don’t believe that registering and licencing publishers will benefit the industry or more importantly, players.Below, I discuss some of the reasons why.It forces great affiliates out of the market While the business of affiliation is often seen as lucrative, in reality it is a hard slog and successful affiliates – whether a big player or a niche publisher – invest substantial resources into their sites. To build a site, populate it with quality content, tweak the design and host, maintain and support the domain runs into thousands of pounds a year. Add the potential cost licensing – licence fee, legal fees, etc – and it could be enough to force small but great affiliates out of the market.Just because a site’s traffic figures are lower than some of the bigger sites does not mean that site is not meeting higher responsible gambling and marketing standards.It favours those with substantial resources Building on my previous point, introducing affiliate licensing would clearly benefit those with substantial resources who have the funds and staff at hand to assist with the process. The GB affiliate space is already fiercely competitive, especially for start-ups and small publishers, and I fear that licensing would hand yet more of an advantage to more established companies.This ultimately does not better protect or benefit players – some of the newer sites are the ones setting the standards when it comes to responsible gambling and safe games. And while licensing will certainly make sure everyone is working to the same standards, I believe it would be the larger organisations that benefit the most.Just consider for a minute how the Gambling Commission would decide who it would investigate first, would it be an independent site such as ours or one of Better Collective’s most popular brands?Licensing puts the Gambling Commission under added pressure What’s more, the RAiG’s suggestion that the Gambling Commission should be tasked with licensing affiliates would put the regulator under even greater pressure at a time when it is already being accused of not being fit for purpose.Surely the main focus for the regulator should be to ensure that all of its licensees are meeting the standards it requires of them – given the number of fines handed out in recent months it could be argued this is not the case – before asking it to take on more responsibility.I also believe it is the responsibility of operators to work with affiliates to ensure compliance, and not put that burden solely on publishers which licensing would undoubtedly do.The regulator would then also be responsible for monitoring and fining affiliates that breach requirements, again putting increased pressure on the Gambling Commission. Players could be pushed to the black market One area I do agree with the RAiG is that affiliates play a key role in ensuring that players are channelled towards licensed operators and not to offshore brands. But requiring publishers to obtain a licence puts this entirely at risk.If an affiliate deems the GB market to too tightly regulated, and the cost of securing a licence too great, they will likely start to work in other less regulated markets and potentially with unlicensed brands.This in turn means players lose a vital resource for finding reputable brands and, worse, may opt to play at offshore sites.I do believe that affiliates could and should be doing more when it comes to responsible gambling, safe gaming and compliant marketing, but I don’t think requiring them to register and obtain a licence is the way to go about it.Ultimately, this can be achieved by operators and publishers working more closely together and by prioritising player protections over profits or anything else.The highly competitive nature of the market is already making this happen and I believe that given a bit more time will lead to the levels of confidence and protection that licensing would bring.Thomas Jones is the founder of BingoSites.co.uk and is an expert on online bingo and the wider online gambling industry in the UK.

Worried about the stock market crash? I’d buy this 4.5% dividend yield in an ISA

first_img Royston Wild has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has no position in any of the shares mentioned. 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. The stock market crash might be continuing, but grabbing a slice of Tharisa Mining (LSE: THS) is a great step in these times, I feel. Gold’s surge to fresh multi-year peaks around $1,750 per ounce grabbed the headlines in this shortened week. But in truth, much of the precious metals suite is surging, their safe-haven qualities coming to the fore as investor panic clicks through the gears.Fevered buying has helped push the Tharisa share price to its most expensive in a month. Why? This particular digger is a producer of platinum group metals (or PGMs) in South Africa’s famous Bushveld region. Platinum’s looking good for another run through $800 per ounce for the first time in a month. Meanwhile palladium rocketed back towards February’s all-time peaks above $2,700, buying activity here being supported by recent supply problems.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…Auto demand remains strongDon’t just think of Tharisa as a great buy as stock markets crash due to solid investment demand for PGMs, though. These metals’ critical role in the automotive industry — they are used to clean up auto emissions in exhaust systems — underpins strong industrial demand for them too. That’s particularly so with environmental legislation becoming more and more strict.The boffins at UBS certainly expect off-take from carmakers to remain robust. They expect auto sales to nosedive in 2020 due to the coronavirus crisis and the subsequent erosion in economic conditions. Still, they expect physical palladium demand from such customers to drop just 3% year-on-year. This is because the broker expects “a further increase in PGM content in autocatalysts this year.”Temporary troublesBuying into a single mining company, rather than the metals themselves, undoubtedly carries higher risks. Indeed, Tharisa is one of many South Africa-focused diggers to have slowed operations in recent weeks. It follows instructions by the government for 21 days from late March to constrain the spread of Covid-19.The AIM company this month paid heed to the “significant and unquantifiable threat to South Africa’s economy” that the corovavirus outbreak has caused. But of course, this is a once-in-a-lifetime occurrence. Other more common risks that the likes of Tharisa face include power outages, labour strikes, disappointing payloads and the like.A great buy as stock markets crashI would argue that these troubles are reflected in the earth mover’s rock-bottom price, however. At a current price of 49p per share, it trades on a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio around 4 times.Besides, Tharisa continues to make good progress on the production front. It mined 1.13m tonnes in the three months to March, down just 1% quarter-on-quarter. A decent result given recent Covid-19-related disruption. And PGM recovery improved 1.5% over the period to 83.7%.Tharisa also looks pretty attractive from an income perspective. Right now, the mining ace also carries an inflation-busting 4.5% yield for the fiscal year ending September 2020. The business might have fallen sharply amid the broader stock market crash. But I think it has the tools to keep trekking higher in the weeks and months ahead.

Safe to say, the news release detailed an impressive set of results in light of current circumstances. Here’s why I think the company is one of the best FTSE 100 stocks to buy right now.Financial performanceVodafone’s share price has performed poorly over the past five years, declining steadily by around 47%. Things quickly worsened in the depths of the stock market crash when the group’s share price plummeted by 36%.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…Since then, the shares have staged a bounced back and upon release of yesterday’s results rose by 8%, helping the FTSE 100 to finish up at 5,994 points.The company reported growth in both revenue and free cash flow, rising by 3% and 12% respectively. What’s more, Vodafone’s resilient business model seems to have facilitated a strong performance throughout the Covid-19 pandemic so far.Best FTSE 100 stock?The telecoms provider offers a range of products and services that have come to be relied upon in the 21st century, especially during the Covid-19 pandemic. After all, lockdown restrictions have reinforced the reliance we have on our mobile phones or broadband.What’s more, thanks to a strong financial performance amid widespread economic uncertainty, the group recently confirmed its dividend. This means that Vodafone joins the ranks of a select few FTSE 100 companies that have so far pledged to maintain dividend payments.That’s great news for income investors, especially considering the current yield of 6.5%.Despite a relatively high P/E ratio of 24.5, the shares are cheaper now than they have been for a long while. This time last year, the P/E was over 30. As for today, I think the high ratio is justified by the company’s exciting prospects.Promising outlookLooking ahead, Vodafone has a bright future in my eyes. Though the group expects to take a hit to earnings in the short term, I reckon this should be minimal. For many, the products and services offered by Vodafone are essential. That means they will be used and purchased in times of recession, as well as prosperity.Moreover, the company is taking steps to reduce its debt, which has long been a concern for investors. So far, actions have been taken to sell European tower assets and various under-performing operations around the world in order to raise cash.With the rollout of 5G on the horizon, Vodafone looks set to perform well over the long term. Provided it can fend off competition, its earnings could be massively boosted by the company’s efforts in developing the 5G network.All things considered, I expect Vodafone to come out of the current crisis in good shape. As we continue to move toward an ever-more-digital future, I think Vodafone is one of the best FTSE 100 stocks investors could buy right now.last_img read more

Stock market crash bargains: I think this is the best UK stock to buy now

first_imgStock market crash bargains: I think this is the best UK stock to buy now Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Image source: Getty Images. Alan Gurung | Thursday, 9th July, 2020 | More on: RDSB Investors who adopt a buy-and-hold strategy over the long-term could capitalise on the bargain stocks that are still on offer which could soon return to normal prices. One such stock I believe is Royal Dutch Shell (LSE: RDSB). Shell has stated that while it expects a crude price of $50 a barrel in 2022, its estimates of beyond that point remain the same at $60. Admittedly, considering the current economic climate and worries of a second wave, we could continue to see low demands for crude globally in the short-term. However, the best UK stocks to buy now, in my opinion, are centred around the necessity of the use of the product the company is providing, and I’m confident that the demand for oil and gas won’t disappear overnight.Why Shell is one of the best UK stocks to buy nowAdditionally, it’s worth noting that Shell does a lot more than simply pump oil and gas out of the ground. It owns refineries, chemical plants, distribution networks, and is a world-class energy trader. I believe many of these engineering and infrastructure assets will remain relevant in an ever-changing future, especially if liquid petroleum gas or hydrogen becomes more widely used as transport fuels.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 Shell stock price has fallen drastically during this pandemic period, largely due to the bombing of oil prices in February. Shell followed BP and dropped its oil price forecasts for the next few years, leading to a £12bn-18bn reduction in its June quarter results, placing the share price at low levels of 1,250p at the time of writing.One major opportunity arising out of the recent troubles with oil is that it may act as a catalyst to quicken efforts towards green energy. However, although the world needs to address climate change urgently, the reality is that billions of people all over the world still rely on fossil fuels through transportation, electricity, and the raw materials needed in manufacturing. Considering the dramatic fall in the share price and the necessary use of fossil fuels in people’s lives, it all adds further reason to why Shell may be one of the best UK stocks to buy now before it starts rallying once the pandemic starts to settle.Dividend cut could help Shell sharesShell’s share price fell when the group cut its dividend by 65% in April. This was the first cut in dividends by the company since the Second World War. However, I am confident that it was the appropriate thing to do.The annual £11bn dividend had become a burden that limited its ability to evolve. With this cut, Shell aims to strengthen its financial position and cut costs during a very difficult time. I believe shareholders will benefit from this decision over the longer term.With the shares trading at around 1,250p and a personal optimistic outlook on the pandemic steadying in the coming months, I rate Shell as one of the best UK stock to buy now.

Referee Nigel Owens – ‘This is not Soccer’

first_imgMonday Jan 9, 2012 Referee Nigel Owens – ‘This is not Soccer’ Munster beat Benetton Treviso with a bonus point 29-11 victory in their RaboDirect Pro 12 encounter at Thomond Park on Saturday night. One of the moments that stood out was this amusing piece of officiating from Welsh referee Nigel Owens. Owens, a stand-up comic in his spare time, has never been shy to tell it like it is on the rugby field. About a year ago he called both teams into a huddle around him and told them all off.In this game he pulled chirpy Treviso scrum half Tobias Botes aside and read him the riot act, introducing himself as the referee and going on to suggest that Botes thought they were engaged in a game of Soccer.One might say that making such an example of a player in a deliberately humourous way when knowing the game is broadcast on TV is a little much, but it is good to see him take a stand against football-like protestations, that it’s safe to say nobody appreciates seeing on a rugby field.His outspoken nature caused a bit of a stir shortly before Christmas however, as Ospreys coach Scott Johnson took exception to Owens’ use of social media. Johnson accused Owens of undermining his own authority by engaging with Welsh players and supporters on Twitter.“It is driving me absolutely nuts it is permitted to continue and the sport can do without this. We have officials in places of supposed power, but we don’t need to learn their private business,” Johnson said of Owens’ habit of sharing his personal thoughts and feelings with his followers.During the Rugby World Cup, at one stage he tweeted his support for Wales, and shortly after the tournament shared the personal news that his partner had split up with him and he was struggling to lift himself up for work.“When you turn up at a game to play rugby, we have to respect the officials. But the respect button is not an easy one to turn on and off. We don’t need them in conversations with the players through these social networking sites,” Johnson continued.“When I get 17-year-olds mocking the behaviour of officials, that is not good for our sport. It has gone completely too far. This is about the integrity of our sport.“Last year he apologised for a forward pass he missed against us that Richard Fussell scored a try from. The public doesn’t need to know that. It is out of control.”Below is the amusing incident with Botes, that Owens himself shared on his Facebook page.

World Rugby CEO confirms full investigation into Craig Joubert behaviour will take place

first_imgMonday Oct 19, 2015 World Rugby CEO confirms full investigation into Craig Joubert behaviour will take place World Rugby CEO Brett Gosper has confirmed that there will be a full review of the final minutes, and indeed entire match, following the highly controversial ending to the Scotland vs Australia quarter final. Referee Craig Joubert made a big call at the end, giving the Wallabies a kick at goal, then sprinting off the field after it was taken. Australia won 35-34.The decision has incensed Scotland fans, who felt that Joubert should have at least gone to the TMO. He wasn’t allowed to under the current protocol, as reiterated by Gosper.He also touched on the fact that we’re all trying to speed up the game and have complained when the TMO has interupted play, but now there are calls to expand the protocol, leaving World Rugby in a tricky situation. They will review things however, after the conclusion of the World Cup.As for Joubert, Gosper has said that all match officials are assessed by a match assessor, by each team and by Joel Jutge, the head of match officials. The report is expected soon and elements thereof will be made public.With regards to Joubert running off the field, that will also be discussed and shared.Hear today’s interview with Gosper, from 5 Live Daily, belowAudio from BBC Radio 5 as Gavin Hastings fumes at Craig Joubert leaving the pitchADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Rugby World Cup Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO If you can get your head around it, these… 47 WEEKS AGO You’ve never seen any Rugby World Cup drop… 49 WEEKS AGO TOP 10: Rugby World Cup 2015 was filled with… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

We tried to give back, and give in, not only to the city, but to spatial relationships between owners, promoting the feelings of belonging and community living.Save this picture!Floor PlanIt is said that in the sixteenth century, pre-colonial Spanish architects used to be asked by clients: “Give me a home with a large patio and good corridors; and if some space is left to spare, make me a room.” Thus, the architectural elements of Vivalto arise from our interest to reinterpret the typology of Moorish courtyard houses that are typical is post-colonial Quito and make it contemporary.Save this picture!© Sebastián CrespoSpatially, the project is resolved through a 6 floor volume with a central patio surrounded by internal balconies and planters. The 215m2 central gallery/garden is illuminated from above. Apartments are located in the perimeter so they are open to the outside to create terraces with distant views of the Cumbayá valley.Save this picture!Floor PlanCovered by glass, the central courtyard opens laterally to the exterior through 2 openings at the end of each corridor. Each internal hallway is flanked by wood planters with random geometric patterns that break the orthogonal lines of the interior “walls”. These openings promote cross ventilation to prevent greenhouse effect and improve the acoustic characteristics of the central courtyard. Save this picture!© Sebastián CrespoThe courtyard is primarily a green area, looking up, the interlaced vertical (concrete) and horizontal (wood) facades make up a more introspective and welcoming environment. The Fixed Point elevators and emergency stairs are enclosed to comply with local fire protection codes and it is coated with vines and planters that help this volume more organic.Save this picture!© Sebastián CrespoAt the top floor, there is a 320m2 communal green area, community hall and culinary and recreational spaces. This addition at the top of the building allows people to enjoy the surrounding views and also are open to the central galleria. The main access to the building has been resolved by subtraction of the ground floor volume´s corner. This produces a transitional exterior space prior to entering the building that is related to the street life.Save this picture!DetailUnderground parking has natural lighting and ventilation in its two levels with a double height void. A Garden of trees springs from the second basement level to the exterior.The elements of vegetation, use of materials, spatial and volumetric solutions combine to make a housing project that evokes the memory of colonial life with a contemporary approach.Save this picture!© Sebastián CrespoProject gallerySee allShow lessKomachi Building / Key OperationSelected ProjectsVigoss R & D / Zemberek Design OfficeSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Gonzalo Endara Crown, Quito EC170124, EcuadorLocation to be used only as a reference.
