Sazka to compete for UK National Lottery tender

first_img Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Sazka, which already operates lotteries in Austria, the Czech Republic, Greece and Italy, has completed its response to the Gambling Commission’s Selection Questionnaire, the first step in the tender process set out in August this year.“As a leader in operating lotteries across Europe, Sazka has made no secret of the fact that we would be thrilled to operate the UK National Lottery,” Sazka chief executive Robert Chvátal said. “The UK National Lottery is a national treasure with a proud 26-year history.“Now it is looking forward to the next decade and how it can best serve its customers in a world so disrupted by digital transformation, the fourth industrial revolution and [novel coronavirus],” he continued. “The landscape from when the UK National Lottery was launched back in 1994 has changed beyond measure.”Chvátal revealed that the operator was in the process of hiring a team in the UK, and building the partnerships and relationships needed to deliver “a compelling case” for Sazka to replace Camelot as the lottery’s operator.The tender announcement in August set out a number of changes to operating conditions for the National Lottery, with the winning bidder to be handed a fixed, ten-year term. The next operator will also be granted more flexibility in how it achieves its good causes funding targets.Furthermore, the contract will set out incentives to encourage the operator to reach these funding targets, and mandate closer relationships with bodies responsible for distributing National Lottery money.Chvátal said that Sazka’s track record of “facilitating the evolution of established lotteries to innovate for their successful future” left it well-placed to fulfil these aims.“We are serious about our intentions and respectful of the process we are entering into,” he said. “We submitted our completed application to the Gambling Commission by yesterday’s deadline. This was an important and exciting moment for us, marking our official entry into the competition. We trust that our submission will demonstrate our professional track record and technical capabilities.”The tender had been due to launch in the first half of 2020, only to be pushed back as a result of disruption caused by the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. This in turn led to incumbent Camelot being granted a six-month extension to its current contract.The other runners and riders are yet to confirm their participation in the tender, though the deadline for interested parties to submit their selection questionnaire passed on 2 October. This would suggest that those competing will either be announced by the Gambling Commission or the individual companies over the coming days.Camelot, which has held the National Lottery licence since its formation in 1994, is certain to compete – though has not officially confirmed its involvement – while Health Lottery operator Northern & Shell is understood to be interested.Sugal & Damani, which was the only competitor to Camelot in the third licence process in 2009, may also be involved. However, its chief executive Kamlesh Vijay told iGB in September that the delays may ultimately create another two-horse race, something the Gambling Commission had been eager to avoid. Regions: UK & Ireland 5th October 2020 | By Aaron Noy Pan-European lottery and gaming giant Sazka Group has announced it will compete for the fourth UK National Lottery licence, becoming the first business to confirm its participation in the process.

Yes, they may yet fall further in the short run. But their long-term prospects appear bright compared to other popular assets.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…Investing £10k todayThe FTSE 100 is a far riskier investment than other mainstream assets such as cash and bonds in ‘normal’ economic times. However, at the present time, the difference between stocks and other assets when it comes to the risk of loss is likely to be far greater than usual. Some FTSE 100 companies are seeing their worst operating outlook for many years. This could lead to lower sales, a slump in profits and falling stock prices.As such, there is a risk that buying shares today leads to losses for investors. The situation regarding coronavirus may worsen over the coming weeks. And this could cause investor sentiment to deteriorate and share prices to decline. It may mean the returns on cash and bonds are superior to equities over the near term.FTSE 100 reward prospectsHowever, investors who can take a long-term view of their portfolio may be far better off buying shares with £10k (or any other amount) today. The track record of the FTSE 100 highlights that it has delivered annualised total returns of around 8%. And that is even taking into account its recent decline. This is significantly higher than the returns of less risky assets such as cash and bonds over the same time period – especially since low interest rates could limit their prospects.Furthermore, the FTSE 100 could produce even higher returns for investors from its current level. Many of its members’ share prices have fallen sharply and so appear to offer wide margins of safety. In some cases, those falls may have been overdone when you consider firms’ financial strength and strong competitive positions. As such, investors buying shares today could fulfil the popular strategy of buying low and selling high in the long run.ISA opportunitiesBut how to buy FTSE 100 shares? Well, Stocks and Shares ISAs offer a low-cost means of accessing a tax-efficient product. And the returns available to long-term investors could be significant.Certainly, buying FTSE 100 when there is a very real risk of paper losses being incurred in the short run may dissuade some investors from focusing their capital on equities at the present time. But on a long-term basis, cheap FTSE 100 shares that form part of a diverse portfolio could deliver significantly greater returns than other assets.

Saint Augustine’s University president announces retirement

first_img Rector Bath, NC Submit a Press Release Featured Events [Saint Augustine’s University] Saint Augustine’s University President Everett B. Ward announced Jan. 25 that he is retiring from the role he’s held for the past five years. Ward made the announcement during a board of trustees’ executive session, on campus.Ward, who became the 11th president and third Saint Augustine’s University alumnus to lead the university, said in his remarks to the board that he will be concluding his presidential position effective July 24, 2019, a position he has held since 2014.“It’s now time for the Saint Augustine’s Renaissance to continue with a new chapter. I’m extremely grateful for the commitment exemplified by our students, staff, faculty and alumni,” he said. “Together, along with friends of the university, we conquered significant challenges with our eyes on the prize.”Under Ward’s leadership, the university has achieved several goals. Most recently, the university was removed from probationary status by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges Accreditation Agency in December. Along the way, donor supporter increased from $1 million in 2014, to $2.9 million in 2018.Saint Augustine’s Student Body President Alston DeVega says he’s grateful for Ward’s vision and dedication to the university. “I’m immensely grateful to have had Dr. Ward as we did,” said DeVega. “He brought life back to the university, while getting us off probation. Our institution will never see another leader with the same expertise and poise, as Dr. Ward’s has exemplified.”The Raleigh native told the members of the board that he was also proud of the university’s efforts in attracting some of the best and brightest young minds to the university.“Given the accomplishment of these goals, now is the time for me to transition the leadership of Saint Augustine’s to the next President,” said Ward. “We’re at a critical point in the history of our university and I know that now is the time to transition to an even more exciting chapter in the life of our institution.”Ward said the future is bright for him personally and for the University.“I look forward to continuing to lead St. Augustine’s through this period of transition. During this time, I will remain the No. 1 champion for our students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends throughout this period,” he said. “Once I leave St. Augustine’s, I will remain involved in activities around higher education.”About Saint Augustine’s UniversityFounded in 1867 by the Episcopal Diocese of North Carolina, the mission of Saint Augustine’s University is to sustain a learning community in which students can prepare academically, socially and spiritually for leadership in a complex, diverse and rapidly changing world.

Americans to Eat 1.3 Billion Chicken Wings for Super Bowl 50

first_img Football fans next weekend will consume an estimated 1.3 billion chicken wings on Super Bowl Sunday. The National Chicken Council’s 2016 Wing Report released this week expects fans to eat three percent more wings than last year on game day, or 37.5 million more wings. 1.3 billion chicken wings is enough for every person in the United States to have four wings each. During the 2016 NFL playoffs, in cities where chicken wings sold higher than their opponent, the city with higher wing sales won seven of the ten playoff games and four of the five past Super Bowl games.  If the same holds true for Super Bowl 50,The National Chicken Council says the Panthers will roll over the Broncos, selling wings at nearly a three to one pace.Source: NAFB News Service By Hoosier Ag Today – Jan 28, 2016 SHARE Previous articleClosing CommentsNext articleBeef Producers Continue to Support the Checkoff Hoosier Ag Today Facebook Twitter Americans to Eat 1.3 Billion Chicken Wings for Super Bowl 50 SHARE Facebook Twitter Home Midwest News Americans to Eat 1.3 Billion Chicken Wings for Super Bowl 50last_img read more

Remember the Alamo Bowl

first_imgDean Straka + posts Men’s tennis clinches consecutive Big 12 titles with win over No. 4 Baylor Another series win lands TCU Baseball in the top 5, earns Sikes conference award Previous articleFrogs stage miracle comeback, defeat Oregon 47-41 in 3OTNext articleSlideshow: TCU overcomes 31-point deficit to beat Oregon in Alamo Bowl Dean Straka RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR printThe Frogs did the improbable Saturday night in San Antonio, Texas, overcoming a 31-0 halftime deficit to defeat Oregon in the Alamo Bowl, 47-41 in triple overtime.In a tie for the largest comeback in bowl-game history, it was the Frogs who emerged victorious after facing their largest deficit of the year. Without starting quarterback Trevone Boykin, who was suspended after an arrest just two days before the game, the Frogs were able to muster enough energy to come back and stun the Ducks.“It’s just one of those teams,” TCU head coach Gary Patterson said. “They just never quit.”The game was the largest comeback for the Frogs in the Patterson era, as TCU had to  rally back to beat an Oregon team that dominated them in the first half.“The first half we didn’t play very well defensively,” Patterson said.After being shut out in the first half for first time since October 2013 at Oklahoma, and recording a mere 96 passing yards and a total of 142 yards opposed to Oregon first half total of 376 yards of offense, the Frogs seemed all but finished.They were not.“I told them we had an opportunity in the second half to show Oregon what our program was all about,” Patterson said. “We’ve had to do that before. At Kansas State, we were down big and came back.”The turning point came when Oregon starting quarterback Vernon Adams, Jr. left the game late in the closing of the first half of the game due to an apparent injury, forcing Jeff Lockie to come in at quarterback for the Ducks.From there on out it was all TCU, as the Frogs scored 31 unanswered points before overtime.After senior backup quarterback Bram Kohlhausen, who was named the game’s offensive MVP, converted on a 26 pass to Jaelan Austin for the Frogs’ first touchdown of the game to cut the Oregon lead to 31-10, the Frogs caught even more momentum when they recovered a fumble on the ensuing kickoff. Kohlhausen would run into the end zone himself shortly after to make it a 30-17 game.The Frogs would edge even closer when Jaden Oberkrom executed a field goal in the fourth quarter to make it a 31-20 game. After forcing Oregon to punt on the ensuing drive, the Frogs scored again when Aaron Green ran it into the end zone for a two yard touchdown.Rather than settling for an extra point, the Frogs went for two and converted when Shaun Nixon found Buck Jones in the end zone on a reverse pass.With seconds to go in the game and the Frogs once again getting the ball back after forcing an Oregon punt, Jaden Oberkrom knotted it at 31 when he hit a 22 yard field goal.“In the first half we were shooting ourselves in the foot with penalties,” Kohlhausen said. “In the second half we were able to get rolling, pick at that 31 points.”Both teams found the end zone in the first overtime, in which Oregon was forced to convert on 4th down to keep their hopes alive. A field goal by each team would send it into a third. That was when the Frogs came through.After Kohlhausen recorded a rushing touchdown and the Frogs failed to convert on the two-point conversion, the defense came through when it mattered most, batting down an Oregon pass on 4th down to complete a comeback for the ages.“You have to appreciate the leadership in these guy’s heads,” said outside linebacker Ty Summers. “There’s some big shoes to fill. I think we have guys that are going to be ready to fill these shoes in the next season.”Players said the game will be an experience they will remember for a lifetime.“This will be one I’ll tell my grandkids about,” Kohlhausen said. “I mean this is a night I thought would never happen. But I honestly just dedicate this one to Trevone [Boykin]. He was the one who showed me how to play like I did tonight.”The game wasn’t only special for Kohlhausen, who started at quarterback on two days notice. San Antonio native and senior Aaron Green was able to end his career in dramatic fashion right where he learned to play the game.“It meant a lot to win here, but most importantly it meant a lot for me to win my last game in purple with my teammates, with my brothers,” Green said.Green said it was the perfect example of TCU’s will to fight back in a season which the team faced so much adversity, something that extended to previous seasons.“We’ve been through a lot man,” Green said. “Just to be part of us turning this team around in the Big 12 means everything to me. These four years that I have been here is definitely something I will remember forever.”The game will all but certainly go down as one of the greater moments in TCU football’s storied history.“To win a ballgame like this, to come back, you have to have a bunch of plays that happen for you,” Patterson said.And the plays happened for the Frogs. Coach Patterson even dared to change his shirt from black to purple at halftime, a hot topic for TCU fans in the second half.“I did the same thing at [Iowa State],” Patterson said. “I started in black, we were down 21-0. I will never wear black again.”Whether it was some TCU magic or the will of a talented core of players to fight back until the end, the Frogs overcame their ultimate hurdle, and the players can enter 2016 victorious.
