The watchdog criticised the former Treasury staff under Labour and said the department could have charged Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) in particular up to £1.9bn more for the asset protection scheme. The troubled bank last year agreed to pay £2.5bn. The support package has also “only been partially successful in encouraging lending to creditworthy borrowers on the scale originally envisaged”, the report said.The NAO accepted the asset protection scheme coupled with the capital injections for banks such as RBS and Lloyds since 2008 have helped sustain financial stability. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan TimesElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite HeraldHealthyGem”My 600-lb Life” Star Dropped 420 Pounds, See Her NowHealthyGem whatsapp Tags: NULL Show Comments ▼ KCS-content

3rd April 2020 | By Josephine Watson Frank Wenzig first joined Sportradar back in October 2010 as associate director of product management when the company’s gaming solutions were first born. Frank assisted an initial team of 12 in the unit’s main base in Bremen, developing Sportradar’s virtual sports meets sports betting strategy that exists today.In the face of world-wide clampdowns on mass public events, the first half of 2020 looks to be a challenging time for sportsbooks. So, when the lights go out and stadiums are empty, how can operators ensure stable and continuous revenue?While live sports cancellations are understandably a blow to the industry, digital advancements and increased demand for new ways to play drives innovation, and this has certainly historically been the case for virtual sports.In a recent webinar sponsored by Betradar, the company’s managing director of gaming, Frank Wenzig, discussed the evolution of virtual sports betting, arguing that the vertical is more than just a supplement when live sports are in downtime. Back to basicsOpening the presentation, Wenzig reflects upon his first ICE in 2010, when Betradar had just started working on virtual sports: “I had to pull customers to our booth and explain what virtual sports are and what they’re good for – at this time there was no awareness.”Since then, he says, the audience has grown from being a niche market to a multi-million pound business.Based on Betradar’s experience working on this vertical, Wenzig outlines several things the industry needs to understand in order to capitalise on virtual sports, including the target group, the incremental revenue, the scope and the risk.To understand the target group, Wenzig says, you first must understand the nature of virtual sports. In his opinion, for the igaming industry, virtual sports should be more realistic than fanciful, and geared towards real life betting – an approach Betradar has taken to strongly when delivering its virtual sports offerings.“Our target group are the punters. In a perfect world scenario, they wouldn’t even notice whether the game is real or virtual. With improving technology, the line between real and virtual is becoming more and more blurry.”Wenzig also explained that when starting its business in the sector, Betradar operated “based on the assumption that a punter would find virtual sports most appealing when it aligned with live sports betting preferences – i.e., live football punters will prefer virtual football over, say, virtual tennis.“This proof of concept is now underpinned by the data collected by the company across almost two decades.”The next two key attributes of virtual sports are the incremental revenue and the scalability, with Wenzig highlighting the ability to tailor virtual sports products to customer demands, in terms of league systems, customisation and localisation, for instance.One of the final points Wenzig makes is the ease with which virtual sports can be integrated and handled: “The product switches on and earns money – there is no risk management or complicated maintenance necessary to ensure it is fully established.” Untapped potential?Speaking after the webinar, Wenzig elaborated further on his vision of the future of virtual sports: “This year we are continuing to witness just how much unanticipated events can have on the industry. I believe this will continue to make people realise that virtual sports are more than just a niche, supplementary product as part of a sportsbook.”Virtual sports have come a long way to get to this point, but Wenzig says there are still plenty of areas for growth. For Betradar, that means extending their gaming solutions portfolio beyond traditional sports, developing offerings across desktop, mobile, retail and terminal, and expanding to new markets.“With the ongoing demand and advancements in technology, together with potential new betting markets such as Asia, virtual sports will continue to prove just how crucial they are in enabling operators to maintain engagement and commercial viability outside of a real-life sports offering.Anticipating this growth, Wenzig says Betradar will develop further on its offerings: “This is why we continue to enhance our gaming solutions portfolio with sports and tournaments such as the Euros and Baseball added recently, and even more on the horizon, including cricket.” Topics: Sports betting Tech & innovation AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Email Address With incremental revenue on the minds of many, Frank Wenzig speaks to iGaming Business on the benefits of virtual sports Tags: Online Gambling Sports betting Companies: Betradar Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Seeking stability in virtual sports
Almost three quarters of regular bettors continue to wager on sports despite the majority of events having been cancelled or postponed as a result of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, according to a new report by Freebets.com. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Sports betting 21st May 2020 | By contenteditor Topics: Sports betting Freebets: Customers still betting despite sports shut-down Almost three quarters of regular bettors continue to wager on sports despite the majority of events having been cancelled or postponed as a result of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, according to a new report by Freebets.com.The UK betting comparison site, owned and operated by XLMedia, found through a survey of its customers that 70% placed a bet during the period of sporting shutdown, with 30% not wagering at all.Horse racing proved to be the sport of choice, with 34.5% of those punters who had placed a wager listing racing as their preferred sport. Football followed with 25%, despite almost all competitions having been postponed, with esports on 9%.The research also suggested a rise in interest for betting on esports and virtual sports, with 12% of punters saying they enjoyed wagering on esports, 13% on virtuals and 17% on both formats.However, the majority of respondents – 54% – said they had not bet on either esports or virtual sports games despite the lack of sports betting options elsewhere.There was also seemingly a lack of interest in switching from sports betting to other forms of online gambling, with only 36% of players having played online casino or similar games.Some 24% of players had tried online casino during the period, with just 5.5% playing internet poker and 6.5% enjoying some form of online bingo, but 64% said the had not played any of these games.Freebets.com also found that just over half of players – 54% – said the closure of retail betting shops as a result of the outbreak encouraged them to gamble online more than previously.“The results of this survey have been particularly encouraging, illustrating how our customers have continued to enjoy betting on sports at this time,” XLMedia chief executive Stuart Simms said.“The popularity of esports and virtual sports stand out as the data suggests that these new categories have begun to cement their position as viable betting options.”Last week, the GB Gambling Commission also published a report looking at the levels of gambling during lockdown. The study found that 1.8% of respondents had stopped gambling entirely, while a further 3.3% reduced gambling spend in this period and 4.8% cut playing time.

The applicant is also being given proper treatment for her minor health issues and her condition is stable. In fact, she was tested twice for COVID-19 and was found negative,” it told the court.Communal clashes had broken out in northeast Delhi on February 24 after violence between citizenship law supporters and protesters spiralled out of control leaving at least 53 people dead and around 200 injured.Next Story
