Veikkaus expects €300m profit hit from Covid-19

first_img Tags: Mobile Online Gambling Slot Machines Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter 21st August 2020 | By contenteditor Regions: Europe Nordics Finland Finnish gambling monopoly operator Veikkaus expects its 2020 profits to fall by as much as €300m, after reporting a 28.1% year-on-year decline in gross revenue and 33.6% drop in profit for the first half of the year. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Topics: Casino & games Finance Slots Finnish gambling monopoly operator Veikkaus expects its 2020 profits to fall by as much as €300m (£268.6m/$354.5m), after reporting a 28.1% year-on-year decline in gross revenue and 33.6% drop in profit for the first half of the year.Gross gaming revenue for the six months to 30 June fell to €607.2m, with Veikkaus estimating that the total was down by around €200m as a result of the disruption caused by novel coronavirus (Covid-19).This saw the operator shutter its gaming arcades, and take its slot machine network offline, from 13 March. It was not until 26 June, four days before the end of the reporting period, that it reopened its arcades, and the slot machines did not go back online until mid-July.This saw the operator’s revenue from casino games falling 46.0% to €243.2m, comprising €137.8m from slots in Veikkaus’ arcade and partner network (down 58.8%) and a €105.4m contribution from other casino games (including online), down 9.1%.Veikkaus noted that online’s share of revenue grew 11.8 percentage points to 44.1% of the half year total. However, it said this was more down to the retail decline than evidence of players migrating online. Online player numbers were up 21% year-on-year over the six months, it noted.Revenue from the operator’s online casino games actually fell marginally year-on-year, to €101.0m.Land based slots’ contribution may decline further, with Veikkaus looking to reduce the number of machines in operation to 10,500 by the end of 2020.This will be followed by the introduction of mandatory registration from January 2021, requiring all players to have an account with the operator in order to gamble. Until this comes into effect, all slot machines will display timers, which notify players after every 15 minutes of play.With the sporting calendar significantly reduced by Covid-19, sports betting revenue across all channels also declined, falling 21.9% to €58.1m. There was evidence of some players shifting from betting on sports to Veikkaus’ toto products, for which revenue grew marginally to €28.9m, though this was all offset by a 38.9% drop in betting’s contribution to €29.1m.For lottery, the decline was more marginal, with H1 revenue down 4.3% at €305.9m. This was largely down to drops in revenue from weekly and daily draw-based games, with only two high jackpots on offer during the half, compared to six in 2019.The business recorded an additional €1.3m in revenue from other sources, and paid €72.8m in lottery taxes, down from €101.1m in the prior year. Veikkaus’ spending on goods and services also declined in H1, falling 22.7% to €80.2m, while personnel cost declined 17.3% to €43.5m.The business incurred €79.2m in other costs, including service fees, deprecation and impairment charges, as well as €100,000 in financial income, for a profit of €332.7m, down 33.6%. Of this total, 53% will be allocated to projects in the arts, science, physical exercise and youth work, with social and health organisations receiving 43%, and equestrian sports and education the remaining 4%.“Like many other operators, Veikkaus had an exceptionally challenging spring,” the operator’s chief financial officer Regina Sippel said. “Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, our contribution to society will fall significantly below previous levels.”Based on estimates from H2 Gambling Capital, Veikkaus said, total gaming revenue generated in Finland in the first half of 2020 – including offshore providers – amounted to approximately €760m, meaning the operator accounted for around 80% of all revenue generated.

Peter O’Mahony emerges as hero of Ireland’s win over All Blacks

first_imgThe Munster back-rower puts in towering display in first Irish win v New Zealand in Dublin Coach Russell Earnshaw playfully captured a sense of O’Mahony’s physical exertions. He hurt himself around the 50-minute mark, but powered on. Perhaps few moments will sum up the Munsterman’s force of will than when he got back to snuff out this All Blacks attack. Van der Flier was not the only one to heap praise on O’Mahony. Members of the rugby media were full of plaudits. Around a minute later, O’Mahony was again getting over the ball to kill All Blacks momentum and claim a crucial turnover.Related: See the reaction to Ireland’s win over New ZealandWhen the talismanic back-row was finally called upon to leave the field, the fans at the Aviva sounded their appreciation. …And after the final whistle the cameras caught this moment from the man of the match. He simply got caught up in it all! By all accounts the writing was on the wall for this performance early doors, though… Ireland, a brilliantly coached team, showed just how good they have become. Johnny Sexton showed why he should be World Player of the Year. Peter O’Mahony showed why nobody has a bigger heart in world rugby.

For example, there was a crucial turnover from O’Mahony around the 46th minute. Barely a minute later, he claimed the lineout that would lead to a Bundee Aki move finding Jacob Stockdale, who scored the vital try. Post match, fellow flanker Josh van der Flier talked of O’Mahony’s brilliance. So the clash between the top two sides in the world lived up to the hype.Bring on the Rugby World Cup!

Since the tournament began on the 20th of September, Moriyama has painted his torso the colour of each nations jersey and by the end of the event he looks to have painted himself the colour of the 20 nations competing.

I just stand there.” Nobody can fault the commitment here especially given the temperature at some of the matches. Some games held in northern cities like Sapporo and Kamaishi yield cold temperatures but he never sees that as an issue;“I just put up with it,” he said. “I’ve got a lot of fat, so that keeps me warm.”Moriyama works in an office in his every day life and yet when all the rugby fans have gone home and the tournament has finished, he is hoping his exploits can help create a positive legacy.“People who aren’t rugby fans will come to know the sport through this tournament,” he said. “I would love it if more people started to play rugby and there was an environment where kids can keep playing.”As Japan take on South Africa in the last quarter-final of the tournament, you would think he would be in Japanese colours but he is in fact wearing the colours of the Springboks!

DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom center_img On this day in history: November 26th, 1941FDR establishes modern Thanksgiving holidayPresident Franklin D. Roosevelt signs a bill officially establishing the fourth Thursday in November as Thanksgiving Day.The tradition of celebrating the holiday on Thursday dates back to the early history of the Plymouth and Massachusetts Bay colonies, when post-harvest holidays were celebrated on the weekday regularly set aside as “Lecture Day,” a midweek church meeting where topical sermons were presented. A famous Thanksgiving observance occurred in the autumn of 1621, when Plymouth governor William Bradford invited local Indians to join the Pilgrims in a three-day festival held in gratitude for the bounty of the season.Thanksgiving became an annual custom throughout New England in the 17th century, and in 1777 the Continental Congress declared the first national American Thanksgiving following the Patriot victory at Saratoga. In 1789, President George Washington became the first president to proclaim a Thanksgiving holiday, when, at the request of Congress, he proclaimed November 26, a Tuesday, as a day of national thanksgiving for the U.S. Constitution. However, it was not until 1863, when President Abraham Lincoln declared Thanksgiving to fall on the last Thursday of November, that the modern holiday was celebrated nationally.With a few deviations, Lincoln’s precedent was followed annually by every subsequent president–until 1939. In 1939, Franklin D. Roosevelt departed from tradition by declaring November 23, the next to last Thursday that year, as Thanksgiving Day. Considerable controversy surrounded this deviation, and someAmericans refused to honor Roosevelt’s declaration. For the next two years, Roosevelt repeated the unpopular proclamation, but on November 26, 1941, he admitted his mistake and signed a bill into law officially making the fourth Thursday in November the national holiday of Thanksgiving Day.

The Foundation carries out vital research to find treatments and improve services to help those whose lives are affected by mental health problems such as depression, anxiety, dementia or bipolar disorder.The Archers actress Patricia Gallimore, who in the appeal tells the story about a woman who lost her life to suicide, said:“I’m really pleased to be involved in the making of this Radio 4 Appeal. A mental health problem hit my family 15 or so years ago as a result of prolonged stress and I know the effect that it can have on a person and their loved ones. Luckily we got good advice from our GP and support from friends and relatives, which all helped to get us through a horrible period in our lives.“Even though many children, adults and older people suffer from mental ill health, it is rarely discussed openly because of the stigma and shame. Charities like the Mental Health Foundation need our support to bring the subject out into the open. Far more needs to be done to help individuals and their families, and I hope Radio 4 listeners will be generous in their support of the Foundation.”To make a donation visit the Radio 4 website www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/ or telephone 0800 404 8144.

Newspaper’s deputy editor gunned down outside home in Kigali

first_img November 27, 2020 Find out more June 25, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Newspaper’s deputy editor gunned down outside home in Kigali News RwandaAfrica Reporters Without Borders is shocked and outraged to learn that Jean-Léonard Rugambage, the deputy editor of the fortnightly Umuvugizi, was gunned down outside his home in Kigali at about 11 p.m. on 24 June. He was the first journalist to be murdered in Rwanda since Emmanuel Munyemanzi in 1998.“We have for months being condemning the climate of terror in Rwanda, the escalating repression of independent journalists and totalitarian tendencies,” Reporters Without Borders said. “It seems that newspaper closures, trials of journalists and blocking of websites have not been enough to elicit a reaction from the international community. Will this tragic development finally open the eyes of those who support this government?”The press freedom organisation added: “As the August presidential election approaches, the government is organising a tightly controlled and monolithic electoral campaign in which all sources of criticism are being suppressed. This undertaking seems to have culminated in the ambushing and murder of this renowned journalist.”In a resumption of diplomatic relations, French President Nicolas Sarkozy visited Kigali in February and his Rwandan counterpart, Paul Kagame, attended the Africa-France summit in Nice on 31 May and 1 June. Reporters Without Borders believes that dialogue cannot be resumed unless particular attention is paid to press freedom and it therefore calls on the French authorities and the European Union delegation in Kigali to ensure that an independent investigation is carried out into this murder. Monitoring this case should be a priority for France’s ambassador to Kigali, Laurent Contini.Rugambage was slain by four shots fired at close range by gunmen who have yet to be identified. The police took his body away to carry out an autopsy. Also known as “Sheriff,” he left a wife and two-year-old child. His murder has caused shock and dismay in both Rwanda and abroad.“Jean-Léonard was without doubt killed as a result of his coverage of last week’s attempted murder of Gen. Kayumba Nyamwasa in exile in South Africa,” Reporters Without Borders was told by Jean-Bosco Gasasira, his newspaper’s editor, who is himself in exile.Rugambage reported that telephone calls were made between Rwandan intelligence chief Emmanuel Ndahiro and the Rwandan citizens who were arrested in South Africa after the shooting attack on Gen. Nyamwasa. In a story about the shooting in Le Monde on 22 June, headlined “Rwandan stray bullets,” French journalist Jean-Philippe Rémy wrote: “It is not easy to say what distinguishes Rwanda from a full-blown dictatorship.”Rugambage had experienced several run-ins with the authorities. Accused of murder during the genocide and then sentenced to a year in prison for contempt of court, he was detained for 11 months in 2005 and 2006 before finally being acquitted. He edited Umuco for a long time before joining Umuvugizi.He was also the Rwanda correspondent of the regional press freedom organisation Journalist in Danger (JED). “He told things as he felt them,” said a journalist who participated with him in a workshop in Brazzaville in 2007 for JED’s regional correspondents. “He was a very committed guy who paid with his life for his courage as a reporter. He did not beat about the bush, unlike some of his Rwandan colleagues.”Rwanda was ranked 157th out of 179 countries in the 2009 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index. This was the fourth lowest ranking in Africa, above only Eritrea, Somali and Equatorial Guinea. President Kagame has for years been on the Reporters Without Borders list of Predators of Press Freedom.
