29th October 2019 | By Josephine Watson Tech & innovation Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Along with the rapid growth of the igaming industry has come a wide variety of platforms, service providers and fierce competition.However, as focus tightens on regulation and responsibility, and with operators facing challenges such as retention and bonusing, app store restrictions and increasing game decay, driving innovation must remain a top priority.In their recent presentation at iGaming Next, Dylan Slaney, SVP casino, platform and ilottery at Scientific Games discussed how innovation will shape the next phase of the igaming industry, and how the company is positioning itself toto win. Choppy waters in igamingSlaney discussed the challenge of navigating networks at scale while attempting to innovate: “We’re doing something like 2 billion transactions a month – data points on what players are doing, how they’re playing games. We’ve seen a huge amount of mobile growth after the last 18-24 months, as well as seeing our partners and transactions increase. We’re managing a technical infrastructure that’s handling 100,000 peak bets per minutes.”Bringing up share prices from the past year, Slaney says: “We can see from data points within the industry that there are some challenges that we as suppliers and operators, our partners, are facing.“It’s challenging times out there, and if there’s a call to action from this presentation – now’s the time for innovation. Now is definitely the time to look at everything we’ve done in the past that’s built this brilliant industry, and how we ultimately go on potentially a different journey.” Partnership with Amazon Game TechSlaney then moved to discuss SG Digital’s partnership with Game Tech, explaining that initially Scientific Games’ own development and product teams had been working on a back-end engine of their own.“We were so close to pressing the button to go it alone – to get in a darkened room for 18 months and spin up millions of dollars in investment to try and essentially copy what was already there.”However, what the company’s true aim was, Slaney says, was to spend time on the creation of services that sit on top of the platform.After exploring various options, SG Digital found GameSparks, which later was acquired by Amazon to become Game Tech. With a background in social games and video gaming, Slaney says their horizontal and vertical scalability was a key selling point. Moving features forwardThe partnership, in turn, had three key results – missions, tournaments and jackpot wars – all of which can be integrated into all content distributed via the platform.Slaney says the value of this is in the player experience it creates: “I’m not in the business of just building these missions and tournaments just for my proprietary content. I’m a content aggregator who just so happens to build content as well.“Your players don’t care what platform it comes from, they care about the experience they get. If I out of the box can give you hundreds of games that we can treat in the exact same way, that’s infinitely better than what exists in the industry today.”Using the example of tournaments, Slaney says: “Who today has 200-300 games as an operator where they can run tournaments? Where all the badges that are needed are pre-canned, all the metadata is flowing through secure, Kafka driven service into a backend that I don’t see, but you see as an operator.”While missions and tournaments in themselves are nothing new to the industry, Slaney says jackpot wars, the peer-to-peer, avatar-based slot game could stand to shake up the industry.“Even if this concept doesn’t work, the fact is this industry now has the ability to run a curated jackpot where you can play against your friends and set up a peer-to-peer tournament where you can share that liquidity and create your own avatar to fight in a jackpot. The technology is there because of the partnership with Game Tech.”Speaking to iGaming Business after the event, Slaney expanded on his view that jackpot wars has widespread appeal: “Players will enjoy the customisation and personalisation options, giving them a real sense of ownership over the experience. To me, that custom and inherently personal connection to a game is something players hope for and studios strive for globally.”He also adds that improved collaboration can give players an experience that earns their attention over other options: “We’re competing with streaming services, traditional console games, and various other forms of entertainment.“Suppliers and operators can look at data from these platforms together and collaborate on solutions that create an entertainment ecosystem rather than a collection of disparate experiences.” Following SG Digital’s recent presentation at iGaming Next, we review the challenges and opportunities when it comes to innovation in igaming AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Collaboration, innovation and scale Topics: Tech & innovation Email Address

Fundraising Camp Chichester this month has attracted a number of guest experts to help ensure that the wide-ranging fundraising discussions can benefit from experience and expertise.Fundraising Camp Chichester returns to the Bognor Regis campus of the University of Chichester on 24 March, one year on from its first outing there.The one-day event is unlike other one-day conferences for fundraisers, in that there are no set topics or speakers. The fundraisers who come to the day do so with the expectation that they can propose topics of discussion that matter to them. The day is then divided into a whole series of practical 30 minute sessions focusing on fundraising ideas, opportunities and challenges.Guest expertsFrom the beginning of the Fundraising Camp series, a range of guest experts have been invited to ensure that the event has a range of experienced fundraisers, grantmakers, donors or business people able to contribute their insight to these conversations.At Fundraising Camp Chichester, these guests include:Darran Fawcett joined Thomas Eggar in 1990 and as trust manager is responsible for the administration, accounting and taxation of approximately 1,000 trusts. As a result, whilst not a trustee, he has gained an insight into how trustees consider appeal applications and the information that is useful to enable trustees to make a decision. Darran is also treasurer for the Sussex branch of STEP. (find out more about Darren here ).Adelle Scott is Head of Communications & Fundraising at The Body Shop Foundation, responsible for strategically developing and implementing the fundraising and communication strategies and activities. The Body Shop Foundation is funded through the sale of a charity product sold globally in the stores of The Body Shop and through various Foundation run fundraising activities. This allows the Foundation to run three different grants programmes – addressing issues on animal protection, human rights and environmental protection around the world.Juliet Stallard is Head of Fundraising and Marketing at The Queen Alexandra Hospital Home, and Freelance Fundraiser. From ‘shop floor’ through to senior management roles, Juliet holds a successful fundraising track record with over 13 years’ experience in the Third Sector. A fully certified member of the Institute of Fundraising (IoF) with Diploma; MInstF(Dip), Juliet now aspires to share experiences and knowledge with charities who need support and guidance with fundraising and strategic development.Free feedback on ‘case for support’ documentsJuliet is proposing to run a session at Fundraising Camp in which she will examine and share advice on charities’ ‘case for support’ documents. If you would like to have her share her advice on your charity’s case for support, do contact her before the event. She will provide feedback on up to three documents at the event.Fundraising Camp Chichester takes place with support from the University of Chichester and Blackbaud on 24 March 2015 from 09.30 – 4pm. It is open to all kinds of charities and organisations, but proves particular popular with smaller and medium-sized organisations. Tickets are still available.It takes place at The Dome, University of Chichester, Bognor Regis Campus.

BulgariaEurope – Central Asia RSF_en Bulgaria: RSF condemns refusal to investigate reporter’s violent arrest Receive email alerts February 11, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on Bulgaria March 10, 2021 Find out more News Help by sharing this information to go further February 12, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Broadcast licence blackmail and disturbing increase in violence Bulgaria’s general election: RSF publishes 10 proposals to rescue press freedom News Reporters Without Borders is disturbed by renewed cases of threats and physical violence against Bulgarian journalists in the past few days. An assault on TV reporter Dimitar Varbanov on 10 February and a police spokesman’s threats against news agency reporter Ivan Yanev in the city of Stara Zagora on 8 February show that a climate of intimidation continues.These incidents and major irregularities in the handling of Radio K2’s application for an official broadcasting licence suggest that the new government’s promises of reform have not yet begun to materialise. The Communications Regulation Commission’s refusal to approve the license obtained by Radio K2 has been referred to the Supreme Administrative Court.“We had been hoping for clear signals from the new government and a determined policy on press freedom,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Death threats by a police spokesman against a journalist are as unacceptable as the authorities’ failure to firmly condemn murders of journalists. Georgi Stoev’s murder and the attempted murder of Ognyan Stefanov in 2008 showed that such threats must be taken seriously in Bulgaria.“The irregularities and blackmail attempts that often mark the issuing of broadcasting licences are intolerable in a European Union member country. It is time the Communications Regulation Commission disregarded political considerations. The rules for allocating licences need to be clarified and implemented.”Reporters Without Borders added: “We urge the government and regulatory authorities to actively guarantee Radio K2’s intellectual, commercial and administrative ownership of its licence. Bulgaria has few independent radio stations and Radio K2’s disappearance would be a blow to independent news coverage.” Reached by telephone, the staff of Radio K2 told Reporters Without Borders they have initiated an appeal. “We filed our petition today before the Supreme Administrative Court’s five judges, who have 30 days to issue a ruling,” a member of the staff said. “We are under a lot of pressure. It seems our audience interests many people, who clearly want to control the licence or want our commitment to give them favourable coverage. We hope the judges confirm that we are the owners of the licence, which we acquired in December.”Varbanov, a reporter for Gospodari na Efira (Masters of the Antenna), a current affairs programme on privately-owned BTV, was attacked with a hammer by real estate entrepreneur Kristo Chapanov on 10 February in the northern city of Veliko Tarnovo, where Varbanov was investigating fraudulent real estate transactions. The attack took place when Varbanov went with a TV crew to an apartment complex where buyers have been unable to obtain title to the apartments they bought. He was rushed to a hospital with multiple contusions while the police arrested Chapanov.Cases of harassment and physical attacks on the press are on the rise again, especially in regions that have been badly hit by the economic crisis, while corruption in the real estate market is now a hot topic in Bulgaria. It falls to the authorities to combat the corruption but investigative coverage of the problem by the media should also be encouraged and protected.Yanev, who is a reporter for the BGNES news agency, was threatened by Yonka Georgieva, the regional police spokesman in the central city of Stara Zagora, while trying to cover a policeman’s murder in the nearby village of Enina, where he was one of the first people on the scene although he is now banned from going back.“How dare you report this before the police has given the official version,” Georgieva told him. “You are dead. Do you understand? You are already dead!”The head of BGNES, Lyubcho Neshkov, told Reporters Without Borders: “Ever since the threats were made against our correspondent, the interior minister has been repeating in the media that it was ridiculous to believe that a man who weighed only 50 kilos (the police spokesman) could threaten anyone. He nonetheless refuses to get back to us although we have had our phone number passed to him several times. We have asked him, so far without success, to take a clear position on the threats made by a member of his staff.”Lyubcho Neshkov added: “Mr. Georgieva has for several days been waging a campaign of denigration against BGNES, accusing it of sensationalism and profiting from this policeman’s death. Nothing is farther from the truth. Ivan contacted the spokesman before going to the murder scene. We have not been given any other information. Since this altercation, we have not been able to go to any crime scenes and we have not had access to information.” RSF and 60 other organisations call for an EU anti-SLAPP directive BulgariaEurope – Central Asia December 2, 2020 Find out more News Organisation News
Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Tagged with: Economic Outlook Fannie Mae Housing Affordability Housing Outlook January 14, 2016 3,380 Views Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Previous: Score One Victory for U.S. Bank Next: Counsel’s Corner: Updated HMDA Creates Concerns Over Privacy, Increased Costs Following up the exuberant growth of 2015’s housing market would be a tough act if anyone expected it could be followed. Most forecasts for 2016 come to the same conclusions as those of the National Association of Realtors‒‒optimistic about steady growth, but tempered with an understanding that growth will be more modest this year.As Fannie Mae sees it, the year ahead will be less like a person in love and more like one in a satisfying long term relationship. Growth in the U.S. housing market will continue for its seventh straight year, but there will be bills to pay.In the housing market’s case, those bills will come in the form of affordability, which Fannie Mae says will shrink, especially in the lower-end of the market, where strong home price gains still outpace household income growth.Fannie Mae’s Economic & Strategic Research (ESR) Group expects consumer spending to underpin economic growth this year, as it did in 2015, and for residential investment and government spending to help drive growth, despite some drag from net exports.Overall, the ESR Group expects the economy to grow 2.2 percent and the pace of improvement in total home sales should be about 4 percent in 2016.“We ended 2015 with a positive jobs report, an annual record high for auto sales, and the housing market poised to be the strongest since 2007,” said Doug Duncan, Fannie Mae’s chief economist. However, he said, “despite our expectation of only a small rise in mortgage rates, home price and income dynamics should inhibit home purchase affordability.”Overall, the housing market and its place in the economy will not be without its obstacles. Duncan cited China’s deteriorating economic activity, a stronger dollar, geopolitical turmoil, and uncertainty about monetary policy as lingering risks to the rosy outlook for the year ahead.“We ended 2015 with a positive jobs report, an annual record high for auto sales, and the housing market poised to be the strongest since 2007.”Doug Duncan, Chief Economist, Fannie MaeEd Delgado, President and CEO of the Five Star Institute in Dallas, cautioned against oversimplifying the economic picture, particularly in light of mounting debts and tighter job markets among younger adults.“The housing sector of the economy, in particular, needs to be re-evaluated,” Delgado said. “Although the housing market made strides this past year, the homeownership rate now stands at the lowest level in 48 years, millennials are saddled with $1.3 trillion in student loan debt, and job prospects for recent grads are bleak. As such, President Obama’s efforts on the housing front cannot be counted as a victory. There now exist barriers of entry for homeownership among first-time homebuyers, millennials, and minorities.”In light of the Fed’s first rate hike since 2006‒‒which Fannie Mae expects to see hit 4.2 percent by year’s end‒‒Duncan said that single-family starts should accelerate to 17 percent this year. But only, he said, “if easing housing supply shortages and a continued strong pace of household formation pan out.”Editor’s note: The Five Star Institute is the parent company of DS News and DSNews.com.
