ATG warned by Swedish regulator over bonus ‘violation’

Posted On Aug 30 2020 by

first_img Sweden’s gambling regulator, Spelinspektionen, has issued a warning to ATG regarding a number of technical issues which allowed players to receive bonus offers on multiple occasions.In February, the operator sent a letter to Spelinspektionen informing the regulator of the issue. Under Sweden’s Gambling Act of 2018, licensees are prohibited from offering players a bonus offer multiple times.The operator has explained, however, that the incident has occurred due to a migration of the operator’s servers, with players’ bonus history not updating with the migration.“ATG has stated that the company takes a very serious view of what has happened, and even though the incident is linked to the relocation of servers, the company has reviewed the procedures for new customer offers so that something similar should not happen again,” Spelinspektionen said.Due to the incident being self-reported, and only lasting a brief time, Spelinspektionen director-general Camilla Rosenberg emphasised that the regulator would not take any action.“The violation has only affected a few people and has been going on for a short time,” she said. “In addition, ATG has on its own initiative reported the violation to Spelinspektionen and made a correction.“In its overall assessment, Spelinspektionen therefore considers that the violation, in this case, is less serious and that a warning may be regarded as sufficient intervention.”Earlier this week, Spelinspektionen issued a warning to Entertainment Laboratories (Enlabs), informing Enlabs that it could move to revoke its licence due to a lack of activity recorded within a re-regulated Swedish marketplace.Enlabs has been given a 1 July 2020 deadline to begin operating gaming activities in Sweden, after the regulator issued its demand.Responding to the warning, Baltic facing Enlabs has played down the potential impacts and asserted that its operations will be in effect by the stipulated date.

first_imgAdidas and the Confédération Africaine de Football (CAF) on Wednesday, 26 November 2014 presented Marhaba, the Official Match Ball for the Orange Africa Cup of Nations, Equatorial Guinea 2015.Marhaba, will be officially revealed on Wednesday, 3 December 2014 during the draw of the final tournament at the Sipopo Convention Centre in Malabo.Taking inspiration from the intricate history of the tournament and its famously passionate fans, the ball was designed in collaboration with the Confédération Africaine de Football. The distinctive gold and blue colouring on the ball represents the contrasting landscapes of the continent, from the Sahara desert to the bright azure sky of the Indian and Atlantic Ocean.Like its counterparts in regional and international tournaments, Marhaba has gone through a thorough testing process to make sure that it is suited to the playing conditions during the tournament. The technology incorporated into the bladder and carcass of the ball is identical to the Brazuca (2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil) and the ever popular UEFA Champions League Official Match Ball. The Official Match Ball for the Orange Africa Cup of Nations, Equatorial Guinea 2015, is available to buy at selected Adidas retail outlets and associated stockists from Monday, 1 December 2014.last_img read more

SA’s deVilliers to play for Barbados Tridents

Posted On Feb 10 2020 by

first_imgBRIDGETOWN, Barbados (CMC): South Africa’s super star AB deVilliers is set for his first stint in the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) after signing to play for Barbados Tridents, officials announced yesterday. The South African Test and ODI captain says he is excited about the prospects of playing in the CPL expected to take place in July. The announcement comes days after Barbados Tridents was purchased for a reported franchise fee of US$2 million by Dr Vijay Mallya, owner of the Royal Challengers Bangalore franchise in the Indian Premier League which de Villiers plays for. “Barbados is one of the most beautiful places in the world, and I am honoured to have been invited to join the Tridents,” said de Villiers. “The CPL has been growing each year, and I’m pleased that this year the league fits so neatly within the Proteas’ international schedule”. De Villiers’ participation in CPL 2016 is not expected to clash with any of South Africa’s international fixtures. The CPL is expected to be played during dates to be announced in July soon after South Africa’s campaign in a tri-series in the West Indies in June, where Australia are the third team. “I’ve had a careful look at my schedule and am looking forward to the next few months. For players in my position, it is important to find a balance between playing international cricket and participating in the various T20 leagues around the world,” said de Villiers. “I remain absolutely committed to international cricket but, this year, it just so happens I can play in the CPL as well; in contrast, for example, I have declined offers to play in the Big Bash League in Australia because it clashes with our home series against Sri Lanka.”last_img read more

CAF’s Conspiracy on Bility’s Disqualification

Posted On Jan 14 2020 by

first_imgIn a space of two days last week, Liberian football was struck three distinct blows. First was the death of LFA secretary general; second, the disqualification of Football Association President Musa Bility as a candidate of the FIFA presidency, and; the national football team, Lone Star’s 1-0 defeat by The Elephants of Ivory Coast.While the three events have various implications, the one that seems to have a greater impact and requires ongoing conversation is the role of Bility in the FIFA contest. Truth is, Bility is a multicolor figure in Liberia, playing various roles within the national political scope: a leader within his ethnic tribal links; owner of a significant media enterprise; a big hand in sports administration, and; a businessman of varying interventions – petroleum, rice, infrastructure, transportation, etc. With such a nature, there is bound to be questions and unresolved issues. So for him to be subjected to lots of questions – including integrity issues – during the FIFA campaign is not without prior thought. Bility has since indicated that his legal advisers are studying the proceedings for future engagement with the International Court of Arbitration for Sports.What, however, has become a larger question is his disqualification that emphasizes his disclosure of CAF’s confidential information which caused him a previous suspension from the Confederation of African Football. As difficult as the entire Bility engagement with football may have appeared and any other thing that he has been engaged with, especially over the last 10 years, this is one area that Liberians need to stand by him. There has been little effort by FIFA to make football administration transparent to strengthen consumers’ confidence.To date the entire reorganization of FIFA is due to wheeling and dealing, hence efforts should be made to ensure that moving forward inspires greater inclusiveness to lighten up the organization to eliminate dealings. Unfortunately, the process is a bit slow for the comfort of transparency advocates. Worse, the process is being steered by one of the giants in the opaqueness of football – the President of the Confederation of African Football (CAF), Issa Hayatou. After serving forever as President of CAF, and brutally crushing perceived enemies who made attempts to question his plan to perpetuate his ruler, he has emerged as the acting President of FIFA. The most senior Vice President of FIFA was brought in to provide interim leadership – and in comes Hayatou.In his brush up with Bility a couple of years ago, Bility divulged “confidential information,” which was a plan to revise the statutes of CAF to permit Hayatou to stand for another term of office. With no word from FIFA at the top of a pyramid of shadowy football administration, CAF openly showed contempt for dissenting views, and contemptuously endured what political leaders across Africa take for child’s play. The impression made was perpetual holding on to power, which is an African phenomenon. And truth is, this holding on has never improved the conditions of our people, but rather strengthened their misery.Returning to FIFA elections, regardless of whether Bility would have drawn the requisite votes to assume the FIFA Presidency, the issue here is the African connection. Here is a sitting head of the African connection, who resisted any effort to endorse Bility as a candidate, because this kid had dared to challenge his continuous stay in office. Then in the face of this, Bility somewhat miraculously got the required support to emerge as a candidate. This is contempt, at least within the African show of forced arrangement! With the next step of background checks, which came under the watchful eyes of Hayatou, nothing could have been further from the disdain the rulers have for the consumers, than to find further room for eliminating this troublemaker.Then issue of ‘integrity,’ included Bility’s previous suspension by CAF. Therefore, FIFA – under the watch of one of offending dinosaurs – endorsed the suspension wherein the defaulter simply disagreed with scornful rules that led to perpetuation of one man in power. With no malice to the other African candidate, Comrade Tokyo Sexwale, a simple grain test in South African affairs will show the extent to which his business dealings would place him in a ring of question marks. We expect that of business people so South Africa’s serious investigative paper Mail and Guardian, in an editorial that said no to Sexwale’s candidacy, stating that “Certain of his business relationships also raise questions. Why, for example, did he opt to partner with Israeli billionaire Dan Gertler, accused by nongovernmental monitors of making most of his fortune ‘by looting the Democratic Republic of Congo at the expense of the people?’”While this deal has become subject to US investigations, his spokesperson said Sexwale had not been convicted or charged: “All these things remain allegations. From where I’m sitting, he is as clean as a whistle.”So, since difficult business links that place other candidates in uncomfortable positions could not limit their participation, the only area upon which the “dinosaur” could lean was a highly disputed suspension. And Bility effectively became the victim of his advocacy!But we look forward to Bility and his team running to the Court of Arbitration of Sports. Bility’s suspension was appealed but denied on procedural grounds, but the ban was later lifted! Does that say something? Football administration is a cesspool that utterly needs to be changed! Easily, this is among the reasons for which I respect US Justice Department investigators for the mass of filth they are unearthing from FIFA and related organizations. This must continue, and even in the individual poor countries where a few rich, business savvy guys are exploiting the masses of the millions that are generated from the ever popular football.So, we are looking forward to the Court of Arbitration to review this decision. What was so confidential in a CAF meeting – especially if we have to consider – repealing of statutes to lift or extend term limits? This is the scandal that has caused untold suffering in Africa. It is thus a disaster when we see this unfolding in the realm of football.And so, in the face of the most challenging reforms that are poised to rock football administration, we look forward to the Sports Court to make a crucial decision – one that will uphold this rot that has represented football or one that will endorse the reform agenda.Whether that works in the interest of Bility or not, what we rather look forward to is a ruling that will strengthen transparency, accountability and inclusiveness in football and make this global fraternity a symbol of peace.

He quit during his quarterfinal match at Melbourne Park a year ago because of a right leg problem, then stopped again during his semifinal at the U.S. Open in September because of a painful right knee. That was followed by offseason surgery on his right ankle.Even though he is wearing a strip of tape over an abdominal muscle that troubled him in the past, Nadal has been terrific in Australia, winning all 18 sets he has played.ADVERTISEMENT MOST READ Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Manny Pacquiao arrives in Manila after welterweight defense SEA Games hosting troubles anger Duterte ‘We are too hospitable,’ says Sotto amid SEA Games woes LATEST STORIES US judge bars Trump’s health insurance rule for immigrants Private companies step in to help SEA Games hostingcenter_img Spain’s Rafael Nadal makes a backhand return to Greece’s Stefanos Tsitsipas during their semifinal at the Australian Open tennis championships in Melbourne, Australia, Thursday, Jan. 24, 2019.
