SG Digital details World Cup’s top trends as tournament hots up

first_img Share The group stages of the World Cup are now well and truly in full swing, and at around 6pm (UK time) each nation will have competed in 2018’s competition once.Gambling industry data specialists H2GC estimates that the Russian World Cup could break numerous betting records, with an expectation that total gross win could topple €1.7bn detailed, as the showpiece emphasises its place as a hugely significant industry event.With the tournament now underway, Keith O’Loughlin, SVP Sportsbook and Platforms at SG Digital, has been speaking to SBC News to talk through some of the top trends to expect this summer. Key acquisition period for sportsbook operatorsWith the Premier League season over for another year, the summer is typically a quieter month for operators, except when a major football tournament takes place. Not only is it a chance to acquire new customers, but it also presents an opportunity to reactivate lapsed users, for instance, those who may have signed up to sites earlier this year for the likes of Cheltenham Festival and the Grand National. It’s little wonder why operators invested heavily in marketing during the build up to this summer’s tournament. We’ve seen famous faces installed as brand ambassadors, while others have come with creative ideas, such as promotions and competitions, to raise brand awareness. Opportunity for revenue growth in newly regulated territoriesWhen England last reached the quarter-final of a major tournament back in 2006, it was also the first World Cup following the introduction of regulated betting in the UK. Twelve years later, the landscape is entirely different. Even in the last couple of years alone, we’ve witnessed sweeping changes in regulation and major M&A activity across the globe. In mature territories such as the UK, we now have a saturated market, which means making your voice heard is becoming increasingly difficult. However, for newly regulated regions, it presents a real opportunity for significant growth in revenues and gross win. Many of these markets will not have operated within a regulated framework during the World Cup before, and it’s sure to have a positive impact on revenue growth for operators as a result.

Matches will kick off at convenient times, which hasn’t always been the case in recent years, and is expected to lead to greater interest and wagering. It’s also likely that Asian operators will benefit too, given its proximity to Russia.The 2014 tournament in Brazil saw some awkward times for the European audience. However, it was highly beneficial for the Latin America market, which saw a huge jump in online betting, as local punters embraced the carnival atmosphere that gripped the region. Looking ahead to the future, with the US [in a joint-bid alongside Canada and Mexico] winning the right to host the 2026 World Cup, it’s likely to have a major impact and lead to an increase in betting activity, given the Supreme Court’s recent ruling on PASPA. Patriotism goes a long wayAs club rivalries are put aside for the month-long tournament, it means bettors are more inclined to turn to their home nation to place bets on. UK-based operators will be hoping England can advance from the group stage this time around, as it keeps bettors, particularly recreational ones, interested and active during the latter stages of the tournament. For newly emerging markets, a strong performance from a home nation can provide a real boost in engagement and help drive interest in sports betting. Reliable technology is a mustWith so many games happening throughout the month-long tournament, platform reliability will be put to the test as a higher volume of bettors visit desktop sites and mobile applications. Operators will want as little downtime as possible, as any technical issues at key times can lead to revenue loss and see customers turn elsewhere for their entertainment. Customers expect to be able to transact and engage with their bookmaker of choice at the peak times, as well as their normal custom. In a marketplace where there are plenty of sportsbook providers vying for position, those with a solid platform and robust performance during major occasions will prosper.last_img read more

Spring training is a learning experience for Angels’ young starters

first_imgThe Dodgers tagged Heaney – whom they traded to the Angels for Howie Kendrick in December – for six runs in 3 1/3 innings. His reaction?“That’s some of the best my stuff has felt,” Heaney said. “I can’t be frustrated with that. I made some pitches, I didn’t make some pitches. Sometimes that’s how it works out.“Today was the best I’ve felt, out of the three starts I’ve made, by far.”For the Angels, it was a reminder that Heaney, 23, and Tropeano, 24, are not finished products. They won’t be once camp ends in two weeks, either. Pitching coach Mike Butcher said he’ll probably find a teachable moment for Heaney when they review video of Thursday’s game. There have been a few of those this spring. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error “It’s almost like going to school,” said Mike Scioscia, who was managing the game against the Dodgers. “You’re getting your lessons, you’re learning – hopefully improving – and you get to a certain point, you graduate and you’re ready. We all feel (Heaney) is ready for the challenge in the major leagues. He’s going to let us know.”Heaney, Tropeano and Hector Santiago are all candidates for a fifth starter’s job that will be unusually important in April. Garrett Richards won’t make his first start through the rotation as he works back from knee surgery. C.J. Wilson will be challenged to make his first start in turn, too, since he’s missed time in camp because of illness and a minor knee injury, respectively.Even though time is of the essence, Heaney isn’t focused on the competition before him.“I’d love to have great numbers but I’m going out there, trying to put my work in, feel better every single time out,” he said. “So far I feel like I’ve done that.”Special deliveryThe Dodgers will play split-squad games each of the next two days, with half the club in San Antonio, Texas, and half staying in Arizona.David Huff is scheduled to start for the Dodgers on Saturday against the Colorado Rockies in Scottsdale, with Chad Gaudin the first pitcher out of the bullpen. The two non-roster invitees could be versatile contributors at some point in the season.“Both in kind of a multi-use fashion,” Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said. “Huff, obviously, being left-handed, could be a lefty, a guy with some length, could give you a couple different roles — a spot start in there if you needed that. Chad kind of the same from the right side.”Huff has an excuse if he isn’t able to start: His wife went into labor Thursday in the Phoenix area.Road trippingA group of Dodgers players, coaches, and staff flew to San Antonio on Thursday night for their two-game series at the Alamodome against the Texas Rangers. Yasiel Puig, Yasmani Grandal, Adrian Gonzalez and Justin Turner are among the regulars making the trip.Left-hander Erik Bedard starts Friday against Rangers right-hander Anthony Bass. Dodgers right-hander Zack Greinke starts Saturday against right-hander Anthony Ranaudo.Grandal will be the designated hitter Friday, Mattingly said, while Greinke will be allowed to bat for himself Saturday. Austin Barnes and/or Shawn Zarraga will catch Bedard on Friday, while Grandal will catch Greinke on Saturday. There is no local TV or radio for either game, but the Rangers will bring a crew from Fox Sports Southwest. That telecast is available to stream live via MLB.tv.AlsoDodgers pitcher Brandon League, sidelined by a sore right shoulder, played catch in the Dodgers’ batting cage as a steady rain washed out most outdoor workouts at Camelback Ranch. … The Dodgers re-assigned right-hander Ben Rowen to their minor league camp. Rowen, who is recovering from thoracic outlet surgery, threw to live hitters in BP for the first time Wednesday. … The Dodgers have 43 players in camp. … Wilson is scheduled to start Sunday for the Angels against the San Francisco Giants in Scottsdale.center_img GLENDALE, Ariz. >> Thursday was a rare day for the Angels. Two pitchers vying for a spot in their starting rotation started games on opposite sides of metropolitan Phoenix. Left-hander Andrew Heaney started against the Dodgers’ major-league lineup, while right-hander Nick Tropeano faced a much younger Chicago Cubs lineup in a “B” game. On paper, the results weren’t good for either pitcher.Tropeano lasted four innings and allowed eight hits and seven runs – all earned – including two home runs.Heaney retired the first four batters he faced, then ran into trouble in the second inning. He walked Scott Van Slyke, allowed back-to-back singles by Justin Turner and Andre Ethier, then served up a three-run home run to Alex Guerrero on a hanging changeup.last_img read more

Redskins name change update: Washington likely to keep colors, avoid Native American imagery

first_imgIf Washington is to change its franchise name (it should), then team should follow @petemrogers’ design pic.twitter.com/GPsWFgy6DB— Ollie Connolly (@OllieConnolly) July 2, 2020Here’s snippet from my interview illustrator @petemrogers, who created his concept design logo Washington Redtails because of the possibility that Redskins logo and name might change soon due to the people demanding change for social reform across the country. #4thofJuly2020 pic.twitter.com/ituH69pcfc— IshmaelStreet (@ygb79) July 4, 2020According to the Post, Snyder is informally receiving advice from Jay Leveton, a partner in the Washington-based marketing firm The Stagwell Group, on the selection of a new name. The report indicated the team had not yet reached out to Native American leaders or advocacy groups for input, which would make sense if Washington indeed is avoiding Native American imagery altogether.Coach Ron Rivera said last week he has been speaking with Snyder about Washington’s nickname, and the two have even discussed possible replacements. Rivera has mentioned he hopes a new name will honor the military in some way. (As the Post notes, the D.C.-based franchise has long had close ties to the military.)”Redtails” would do the trick in that regard, too. Less than one week after the Redskins announced they would “undergo a thorough review of the team’s name,” reports indicate the team is well past the review stage and moving quickly to remove the racial slur and replace it with a new nickname.As a source told the Washington Post this week, “in effect, (the review) buys time” for team owner Daniel Snyder to speak with advisors and NFL officials who are helping him pick a new team name. While it’s unclear whether Snyder has settled on a new nickname for his team, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Wednesday that “Washington is planning to have no Native American imagery” on its logos and uniforms under the new name. Washington’s burgundy and gold color scheme, though, reportedly is unlikely to change.”That could, perhaps, change in the future,” ESPN’s John Keim reported, “but the plan for now is to keep the color scheme as they undergo a search for a new name.”MORE: 5 options for Washington to replace “Redskins”The combination of those two reports suggests Washington quarterback Dwayne Haskins’ top choice for the team’s new nickname — the Redtails — could still be an option. As SN’s Jordan Heck notes, “Redtails” would allow Washington fans to keep their apparently sacred “HTTR” motto.From a graphic created by SB Nation fantasy editor Pete Rogers: “The name Redtails celebrates the WWII Tuskegee Airmen, who were the first African-American military aviators in the U.S. Armed Forces. The nickname Redtails comes from their planes, which had a distinct crimson tail.”last_img read more

Home Improvement And Energy Efficiency Go Hand In Hand In Olympia

first_imgSubmitted by Northwest Energy TeamGeorge and Martha Dickins asked Brent Foster of Northwest Infrared to inspect their 1970’s inherited home. The education they received helped them prioritize improvements.Spring is when we start thinking seriously about big home improvement projects in Thurston County. As you’re gearing up, take a look at what you can do to make your home more comfortable and your energy bills lower next time the cold weather rolls around.This Thursday, March 21, from 5 – 6:30 p.m. at the Lacey Timberland Library experts on building science, efficient heat sources, and solar power are available to answer your questions on what you can do to make your home more comfortable and your electricity bills lower. This is the Home Efficiency Action Training (HEAT) workshop. It is free and open to the public.Before you begin ripping out walls it’s best to have a plan. You know you want the end result to be a more energy efficient, more comfortable home. How to get there can look like a cluttered path. What you’d like is a little guidance and some expert advice to make your path clearer.  And no sales pitch, if you please, thank you. Right?Marty Hemmann went to the HEAT workshop this January. “My baseboard heaters were noisy. Really noisy! They were inefficient and expensive and we were cold and uncomfortable. We had had enough. I went to the [HEAT] workshop to see what our options were.“I thought I was going to get some information about things people were selling. What I got was an education,” says Hemmann. “There are so many options for improving my home; it was good to be able to have them explained clearly and to get my questions answered.”George and Martha did quite a lot of home improvement projects on their own, with guidance from Brent Foster (Northwest Infrared) and Paul Ivy (Northwest Energy Team).Hemmann chose to have an infrared inspection and blower door test done on his home. He used the test results as a reference and guide while gathering bids for energy efficiency improvements on his home. He took those results to Paul Ivy of Northwest Energy Team, who was also at the HEAT workshop.“I did the proper thing and got three bids. I chose Northwest Energy Team because I knew they were on the same page as I was. Talking to them at the workshop gave me a feel for their approach. That took some of the strain out of the experience. And they are helping me fill out the rebate forms!”Northwest Energy Team used the infrared and blower door report to guide their work on Hemmann’s home. They sealed up the air leaks, including the big ones in the skylights, and installed a ductless heat pump to replace the noisy and costly baseboard heaters.After meeting Brent Foster of Northwest Infrared, George and Martha Dickins decided to have him inspect their inherited 1970’s home. “It had a lot ‘deferred maintenance’ (ie: it needed work),” says Martha. “We knew there were potential problems but we didn’t know where to start and what was most important to deal with.  With Brent it was all about education. He had nothing to sell – he doesn’t work for any product company – so we felt we could trust his advice. He helped us figure out what was worth spending money on and what wasn’t.”The Dickins decided to do all the improvements they can — energy efficient and otherwise – in one fell swoop. Northwest Energy Team put in a ductless heat pump, insulated and sealed off air leaks. “It’s a huge project; we’re stripping the house down to the studs. We got good advice and chose Northwest Energy Team because they respected that advice. And clearly they do good work.”The Dickins’, whose home renovation projects are almost complete, installed a ductless heat pump, insulated, and sealed off air leaks.Matt Cooper went to the HEAT workshop to meet Kirk Haffner of South Sound Solar. “With all the rebates and credits available, we’ve been looking closely at solar,” says Cooper. “I found differing information on the web. A lot of white papers focus on solar performance in California or Germany. I couldn’t find much on solar in Western Washington. I appreciated being able to hear the facts, in person, from Kirk and get them straight.”Haffner says, “We like to do these workshops because it gives folks a chance to really think about how energy efficiency works in a home. We get people calling us to help lower their electricity bills and our response is: first make your home more efficient. Then call us. Yes, solar is the ultimate renewable energy source. However, your home needs to operate a basic level of energy efficiency or you’re not going to get the full benefit of an investment in solar.”For more information, attend the workshop at the Lacey Timberland Library on March 21 at 5:00 pm.

Travel Discounts Available for Tourists as the Summer Arrives

first_imgBy Anastasia MillickerIt’s here.As temperatures rise and the start of the season arrives with the Memorial Day Weekend, the Jersey Shore is gearing up for visitors.NJ Transit is helping bring people to the shore with discounted deals and travel packages.

They can receive grandstand admission and a track program for $1 plus round-trip train fare when purchasing their tickets, according to Nancy Snyder, a NJ Transit spokeswoman. Those tickets will be available on NJ Transit’s rail system.This summer, NJ Transit will continue to offer beachgoers taking trains and buses to the shore a discounted beach admission package with the purchase of a round-trip train fare, Snyder said.Passengers riding NJ Transit can save up to $6.50 on admission to one of five beaches – Long Branch, Asbury Park, Ocean Grove, Bradley Beach and Belmar – by purchasing round-trip train fare and a beach pass for one price at NJ Transit ticket vending machines. The package can be purchased for $31.50 from New York Penn Station or any station on the Northeast Corridor, Bergen County and Pascack Valley lines and for $23.50 from Hoboken Terminal or Newark Penn Station.NJ Transit will also be offering discounts for families riding the trains on weekends.“Children 11 years and younger can ride the train for free,” Synder said. “The discount allows for two children accompanied by a fare-paying adult to ride the train for free.”A newer program available to shore shoppers and beachgoers is the Shore EZride Jitney, Synder said. The jitney will take its first passengers at 9:30 a.m. Friday, May 25, from the boardwalk at Pier Village to the train station in Long Branch. The Shore EZride Jitney also will help beachgoers get to and from the beaches and shopping in Asbury Park, Ocean Grove and Bradley Beach this summer.Thrill-rides seekers can save up to $51 by purchasing round-trip bus transportation and park admission together to Six Flags Great Adventure or Hurricane Harbor.

This year the parking fee is increasing $5; daily parking will cost beachgoers $15 and a season pass will cost $75 per car.last_img read more

Easter Sunday and market in Barcelona

first_imgWhile the fire mounted by the ex-vice president Emili Rousaud, from which the also resigners Maria Teixidor and Jordi Calsamiglia have also unmarked, the covers recover the ‘normal’ sport and dawn with future names this Easter Sunday, April 12 .Mundo Deportivo reports that, in addition to Neymar, Barça wants to strengthen three positions. In defense, he ensures that Laporte (Manchester City) is once again on the list (another left-handed central defender, a position where Lenglet and Umtiti are already). In the midfield, the favorites are Ndombele and Fabián. And it goes without saying that Setién’s favorite is the former Betis player. Up front, Barça will do it all for Lautaro, who has already offered, according to some sources, a contract until 2025 that can be extended to two more. Everything, with Neymar’s cherry. Bartomeu is willing to throw the house out the window to see the Brazilian back and, thus, Messi happy. The photo would go around the world Sport, meanwhile, focuses on bartering right-backs. Semedo would go to Manchester City and, instead, Cancelo would arrive. However, the option that cannot be ruled out and which is preferred by the technicians is the signing of the Emeticon Betic, of whom Barça has 50 percent.last_img read more
