Danish gambling revenue declines by 9.3% in 2020

first_img Tags: Spillemyndigheden This meant that revenue from both slots and casino fell sequentially in Q4, having shown signs of recovering from Q2’s first national lockdown in their third quarter figures.  Full year results 2020 AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter In terms of products, online slots contributed DKK1.82bn, or 74.4% of the vertical’s total. Roulette followed in a distant second on DKK231.9m (9.5%), with blackjack in third on DKK166.6m (6.8%). Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Revenue for the year declined to DKK5.96bn (£704.2m/€801.8m/$971.8m), with land-based gaming affected by nationwide lockdowns from March to June, then again from November 2020 due to the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.  However, the 5.0% year-on-year rise in revenue to DKK2.45bn was the lowest increase for online casino since the Danish igaming market opened for business in 2012.  The biggest declines were seen in the core land-based products: slots and brick-and-mortar casino. Slot revenue was down 29.0% at DKK986m, while casino revenue dropped 31.5% to DKK239m.  Danish gambling revenue declines by 9.3% in 2020 Sports betting, meanwhile, also had to deal with an almost complete global shut-down of all sporting events from March.  The country’s national self-exclusion database Register Over Frivilligt Udelukkede Spillere (Rofus), had 25,176 individuals signed up as of October 2020, the most recent figures available.  Over the year, there were only marginal changes in customers’ preferred channel for betting. DKK1.18bn – or 51.5% of revenue – was generated via mobile sportsbooks, with a further DKK771.4m (33.7%) coming from retail outlets. Just DKK338.5m (14.8%) came from betting sites online. As the only vertical unaffected by lockdown measures or sporting cancellations, online casino posted year-on-year growth in revenue.  Compared to 2019, this suggests that while mobile’s market share has grown, it has been at the expense of desktop sites. Meanwhile, despite the Covid-19 lockdowns, there was actually marginal growth in retail betting’s share.  All other verticals reported year-on-year declines. Unlike sports betting, neither of these offerings could mitigate the November lockdown, which is unlikely to be lifted before 28 February, with an online offering.  Topics: Casino & games Finance Sports betting Land-based casino Online casino Slots Full year results 2020 Q4 results 2020 Online sports betting Retail sports betting Sports betting revenue finished the year 8.5% behind 2019, at DKK2.50bn. This, however included a record quarterly total for the three months to 31 December. 10th February 2021 | By Robin Harrison Of this number, 16,918 people had permanently blocked access to all gambling products. The remaining 8,258 people had temporarily blocked gambling, for between one and six months.  Denmark’s regulated gambling revenue fell 9.3% below prior year levels in 2020, though the fourth quarter included record returns from sports betting, according to the latest figures from Spillemyndigheden.

While members of the House of Bishops met in sequestration at St. Mark’s Episcopal Cathedral a few blocks away to elect the next Episcopal Church presiding bishop, members of the first house of General Convention took time out from legislative debate to celebrate its history and honor several of its former leaders.The Rev. Gay Clark Jennings, house president, provided historical context for the celebration.“The first session of the General Convention held in 1785 consisted only of the House of Deputies,” she said. “It adopted a constitutional provision establishing a separate House of Bishops, which joined the convention at its second session in 1789. So the House of Deputies is the older of General Convention’s two houses by four years.“It’s hard to express how revolutionary the first General Convention, held in the wake of the American Revolution, really was,” she said. “It’s in that spirit, the spirit of innovation, shared responsibility and decision making, and celebration of our history, that I’ve invited our distinguished former leaders to join us this morning for our party.”Jennings presented House of Deputies medals to several former house leaders in person and in absentia. Celebrants watched two videos, one featuring House of Deputies Vice President Byron Rushing, deputy of Massachusetts, interviewing Charles Willie, former house vice president. Deputies responded with a standing ovation, and Jennings presented Willie with the first medal.“Dr. Willie is a groundbreaking African-American educator, the first African-American professor at Syracuse University, a distinguished public servant who worked with President John F. Kennedy and President Jimmy Carter, and a leader of desegregation,” Jennings said. As vice president of the House of Deputies he preached at the 1974 ordination of the “Philadelphia 11,” the first women ordained priests in The Episcopal Church. “When the bishops failed to uphold that ordination and give equal rights to women, he resigned his position in protest. Dr. Willie, we have not forgotten.”Jennings also honored former House of Deputies presidents Bonnie Anderson, the Rev. George Werner, the Very Rev. David Collins and Bishop Brian Prior, and former vice presidents the Very Rev. Scott Kirby and Vincent Curry.After the award presentations, deputies had the opportunity to pose with cardboard likenesses of the faces of famous house leaders of the past: Bishop William White; former house President Pamela Chinnis; Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall; and Charlie Crump, who served 17 terms as a deputy from the Diocese of West Tennessee.“Seventeen General Conventions. Just think about that,” said his former chancellor, deputy C. Bradford Foster III. Foster said he used to tell people: “What do I do for Charlie Crump? I carry his briefcase; that’s all.”— Sharon Sheridan is an ENS correspondent.

All Blacks sneak the 1st Test against the British Lions in 1993

first_imgMonday Jul 13, 2009 All Blacks sneak the 1st Test against the British Lions in 1993 As the 2009 British & Irish Lions tour of South Africa has come to an end with the usual discussions about refereeing, as well as a famous last minute penalty, weve had a request for some footage from a match in 1993 that featured much of the same.The 93 Lions were the last of the amateur era. Led by Gavin Hastings, they were coached by Ian McGeechan, who upon taking the reigns became the first man to coach the Lions twice.The makeup of the squad was entirely different to what weve seen this year, as it was dominated by English players, with no less than 17 of the 30 players on tour, the most ever.The first Test took place in Christchurch, ending in a narrow 20-18 win for the All Blacks who scored a controversial try within two minutes of kick off as Frank Bunce dived over after collecting a Grant Fox high kick.The Lions came back strongly and played some good rugby in the second half, as Hastings and Fox exchanged penalties. The Lions led 18-17 with little time left, before Australian referee Brian Kinsey awarded a hotly disputed penalty.Fox coolly slotted the kick, snatching the win away from the Lions, causing anger amongst Lions fans and coaching staff.The All Blacks went on to win the series 2-1, and well show you footage from the other two matches if youre interested.In his report after the tour, Lions coach Ian McGeechan highlighted the differences between the approaches of the northern and southern hemispheres.He said that the north plays a more static game, which is in contrast to the souths dynamism and continuity. Its now sixteen years later, and the debate continues.Look out for some superb play by Jerry Guscott, as well as a great run and big hit by Inga The Winger Tuigamala. :: Related Posts :: Va’aiga Tuigamala Try – Barbarians vs New Zealand 1993 Time: 08:08ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

The house is situated on the edge of a village in a natural setting where forest meets heathland. Distinctive features of the house are the raised patio and living area, the large overhanging roofs and the generous picture windows. The house is finished inside and out in exposed concrete. The straight lines and subdued detailing go to make up a striking design by Bedaux de Brouwer Architects.Save this picture!© Michel KievitsSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Michel KievitsThe living area, which is raised above the forest floor, has the appearance of a pavilion and feels like a lookout post in the forest. At the back it runs into the patio, which overlooks the heath. The large glass panels and sliding door at the back provide views of the surrounding countryside. Further to the front, the rooms are more enclosed to provide a safer and cosier feel. Access to the living area and patio is via a concrete path and outside stairway. A concrete wall guides the visitor to the front door, which is sheltered by a thin steel canopy.Save this picture!© Michel KievitsThe main structure of the house consists of inner and outer concrete shells, poured on site, which required careful detailing and intensive coordination with the structural engineer and contractor.Save this picture!© Michel KievitsThe aluminium panorama facades are finished cleanly and merge unobtrusively into the walls and floors. Mullions have been minimised to ensure the least possible hindrance to the influx of light. As a result, the outer and inner spaces appear to flow seamlessly into each other. The aluminium louvres can be used to ensure privacy when desired.Save this picture!© Michel KievitsThe raw concrete gives the house a pure and basic appearance, which contrasts handsomely with the refined and restrained detailing of the frames, louvres and interior.

Bishop Leahy pays tribute to ‘inspirational’ Dara

first_imgLinkedin Previous articleWin cinema ticketsNext articleLedwidge – on 100th anniversary of his death Editor Print TAGSDara FitzpatrickLimerick Bishop Brendan Leahy RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Twitter WhatsApp Limerick Papal Mass NewsCommunityLocal NewsBishop Leahy pays tribute to ‘inspirational’ DaraBy Editor – March 17, 2017 643 Dara FitzpatrickThe sense of heroism and mission displayed by St. Patrick is still very much evident in the acts of Irish Coast Guard pilot Dara Fitzpatrick and many others who sacrifice much, Bishop of Limerick Brendan Leahy stated today.In the now traditional St. Patrick’s Day Mass by the Bishop of Limerick for members past and present of the Defence Forces and their families in the city, Bishop Leahy said we cannot but think today of someone like Dara Fitzpatrick who dedicated her life to others so fearlessly.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Linking the selfless kindness of St. Patrick to that of Dara Fitzpatrick, her colleagues, the defence forces and many others, Bishop Leahy said that the heroic pilot was an inspiring example for all of us.“I was struck by her comments in the Rescue 117 documentary she featured in, which was played back on Wednesday’s news on RTE. She said ‘there’s no way in the world we would do anything else in life’. Dara had a strong sense of ‘giving’ to others. A pilgrim on life’s journey, like all of us, she seemed to be a person who got up each day thinking of helping others.“I even noted over recent days a video on the online Catholic channel iCatholic about the importance of finding the balance with alcohol. She participated in that video to promote responsible use of alcohol. She spoke of how she had far too great a responsibility to her job to ever allow a drink on any night get in the way of work the following day. Saving lives was her priority and she lived that out to the end. Certainly, an inspiring example for us all on this St. Patrick’s Day.”Bishop Leahy said that on the national feast day, it was important to be grateful for the reminder of the Christian story at the heart of our culture.“Let’s be grateful for all those, like Dara, whose generous spirit reminds us of the measure of love: to love without measure.“Let’s acknowledge the sacrificial love witnessed also in the Defence Forces who, at times, spend a long time away from their loved ones, often in war zones in the Middle East and Africa. Here in Limerick you have been deployed to help with flood relief in the past. You share in that sense of giving and the rest of us are truly grateful.  Perhaps you don’t always explicitly think of it but there is always a risk involved in your mission, and that risk has a name. It’s called being ready to lay down our lives. There’s a heroism in that.“Surely, St. Patrick would recognise in you and in people like Dara Fitzpatrick the measureless measure of love being lived out so quietly but effectively day by day across this island.  Yes, it’s good to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day together here this morning. Remembering the great foundation story of St. Patrick and the great continuing stories of modern day heroes brings so much inspiration to us all.” Advertisement 1,000 students conferred at Mary Immaculate College Limerick flags at half mast for fallen heroes of Rescue 116 Facebook Emaillast_img read more

Data from CoreLogic indicates the home-flipping rate has increased year-over-year for 12 consecutive quarters, and on a seasonally adjusted basis is now at the highest level since CoreLogic started keeping track in 2002, at 10.9% of home sales as of Q4 2018.A new player in the home-flipping game is the “iBuyer.” According to Sean Black, CEO & Co-Founder of Knock.com, writing for Forbes, iBuyers are companies who buy homes through instant offers, often spending only a few thousand on repairs and reselling for smaller profit than traditional home flippers.These iBuyers companies are expanding, selling more and more homes each quarter, but according to Zillow, who is expanding their own iBuyer segment, margins on these instant offer are “razor thin.” Meanwhile, returns for traditional flippers has risen.“In addition to flipping rates, we also estimate economic returns to flipping,” said CoreLogic Deputy Chief Economist Ralph McLaughlin. According to McLaughlin, returns for flippers have risen significantly, up to a median of around 40% after 2007. Additionally, he notes that flippers are shifting away from price speculation and toward adding value to properties.Returns are particularly high for older housing. CoreLogic found that returns are highest in Detroit, Philadelphia, and Pittsburgh with returns of 95.9%, 92.8%, and 75%, respectively, while areas with newer housing stock, such as Colorado, Arkansas, Missouri, Texas, Arizona, and Tennessee, Florida, and Nevada, have seen lower returns ranging between 8.4-10.8%.Still, iBuyers such as Zillow’s “Homes” have seen significant growth, even if they are not yet at the level of traditional flippers. Zillow’s “Homes” segment grew from $11 million to over $40 million from Q3 to Q4 2018, representing a 400% growth, with gross profit increasing from $700,000 in Q3 2018 and $2 million in Q4 2018, a small but significant margin, as Zillow admits that the actual goal is to sell mortgages.
