GAN agrees Coolbet deal after strong Q3 revenue growth

first_img Email Address 17th November 2020 | By Robert Fletcher Total revenue for the three months to September 30 came to $10.3m, up from $5.5m in the corresponding quarter in 2019. GAN agrees Coolbet deal after strong Q3 revenue growth Despite an 87.3% year-on-year rise in revenue during the third quarter, GAN saw costs of its expansion effort weigh on its bottom line, while the gambling technology provider has also agreed a deal to acquire Coolbet for €149.0m (£133.7m/$176.8m). Tags: GAN Its free-to-play simulated gaming division, meanwhile, saw revenue grow 85.7% year-on-year to $2.6m, mainly as a result of new customer launches and strong performances from existing clients. “We added multiple new RMiG and simulated gaming customers over the last several months, demonstrating the unique and highly differentiated capabilities of our SaaS platform for integrated igaming and online sports betting,” GAN’s chief executive Dermot Smurfit said.

The provider experienced growth across both of its core operating segments, with its real-money igaming (RMiG) business its main source of income in the quarter, after revenue jumped 87.8% to $7.7m. This growth was down to additional software-as-a-service and hardware revenue, GAN said, driven by deployments in Michigan, which is in the process of launching online betting and igaming.

Karthik had four catches on the day.KKR finished the league stage with 14 points from 14 games with a net run-rate of -0.214, which currently puts them in fourth spot in the table for a day.Their entry into the play-offs will now depend on the result of the matches between Delhi Capitals (-0.159) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (-0.145) as well as the one where Sunrisers Hyderabad (+0.555) take on defending champions Mumbai Indians, who have already qualified.In case, SRH wins, KKR’s chances of qualification will hinge on a real poor defeat for either DC or RCB in their particular game.Morgan top-notch knock was studded with six maximums and five fours as KKR amassed 59 in last five overs.Earlier, Shubman Gill (36) and Rahul Tripathi (39) shared a 72-run stand for the second wicket, while Andre Russell had a 11-ball-25 to his credit.For Royals, leg-spinner Rahul Tewatia (3/25) and Kartik Tyagi (2/36) were the most successful bowlers.Sent in to bat, Nitish Rana fell for a first-ball duck after he edged a Jofra Archer delivery and was caught behind. But the opener went for a review only to waste it early.Shubman Gill (36), however, looked in good touch as he blasted three boundaries off Varun Aaron and then sent spinner Shreyas Gopal soaring over the ropes twice.Rahul Tripathi (39), who looked uncomfortable against pace early on, also got into the act, smashing Gopal for a couple of fours as KKR scored 17 runs in the fourth over.Ben Stokes then went for 11 runs with Tripathi pulling him for a six in the last ball.The two batsman hit one four each off Aaron as KKR scored 55 for one in the powerplay.Rahul Tewatia then struck twice, dismissing Gill and Sunil Narine (0) to reduce KKR to 74 for 3 in 9 overs. While Gill holed out to Jos Buttler at deep mid-wicket, Narine’s miscued shot landed safely in the hands of Stokes at long-on.In the 13th over, Gopal returned to remove Tripathi, who was caught by Robin Uthappa at deep square leg.Dinesh Karthik (0) then became the third victim of Tewatia after his inside edge was caught by Steve Smith at short mid-wicket as KKR slumped to 99 for 5.Morgan then exploded, smashing Gopal for two fours and as many as sixes as KKR piled up 21 in the 14th over and their innings regained momentum.Russell blasted successive sixes before being sent back by Kartik Tyagi.In the 19th over, KKR racked up 24 runs off Stokes with Morgan picking up two sixes and a four.Morgan then ended the innings with another six off the last ball.Brief Scores:Kolkata Knight Riders: 191/7 in 20 overs (Eoin Morgan 68 no off 35 balls, Rahul Tewatia 3/25).Rajasthan Royals: 131 for 9(Jos Buttler 35, Rahul Tewatia 31, Pat Cummins 4/34).IPL 2020 Latest Points Table 7.10pmKKR Playing XIlast_img read more

She can be reached via www.thepurplepim.com.center_img Peer-to-peer interactive fundraising platform Tiltify has launched to UK charities. The platform helps nonprofits raise money through livestream broadcasting, with WaterAid announced as one of the UK organisations that will use the platform in the next few months for livestream fundraising in campaigns. Tiltify is also working with a number of other UK charities, including Make-a-Wish UK, Cats Protection UK and The Diana Award.Tiltify also allows nonprofits to partner with gamers and celebrities for campaigns, who can mobilise their online followers to contribute to their favourite charitable causes. Last year on Tiltify, gamers raised nearly £2.3 million for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital during the 2018 GuardianCon event, with another £1.5 million during St. Jude Play Live Prize Month, which hit its fundraising goal in just the first 19 days.Celebrity streamers are also using Tiltify to raise funds for charities, with YouTuber Markiplier raising almost £400,00 in less than 24 hours with the help of his 23 million-plus YouTube subscribers, while Jacksepticeye has raised over £1.2 million so far in his fundraising efforts on Tiltify by engaging his 21 million subscribers to give to various causes through the Tiltify platform on his channel.Tiltify supports a wide range of livestream fundraising activities beyond gaming, including food-related and art broadcasts, such as live music performances, and events like 5K runs and walks for charity.It is also the only fundraising platform to have direct integration with the Twitch livestream platform. The Tiltify for Twitch extension allows streamers to embed Tiltify’s interactive features, such as milestone, incentives and real-time contribution tallies into their stream pages. Tiltify also allows donors to receive instant, on-screen recognition for their contribution and interact live with players and special guests.According to Tiltify, it is possible to get started with a Tiltify livestream fundraising event in less than five minutes. Tiltify CEO Michael Wasserman said: “While some may have never heard of these gaming and internet celebrities, there is a massive following for esports and livestream programming in the UK, which is why our platform has grown by streamer demand alone over the past four years.“Our platform is not just designed for celebrities or well known influencers, though. Tiltify allows anyone and everyone to reach new audiences from around the world and capitalise on the opportunity with easy-to-use features unique to our platform – like polling, rewards and milestones – that engage and motivate donors to open their wallets.”  1,182 total views,  2 views today Melanie May | 11 April 2019 | Newslast_img read more

60 years ago: The invasion that failed

first_imgSixty years ago — on April 17, 1961 — some 1,400 heavily armed right-wing exiles waded ashore at Cuba’s aptly named Bay of Pigs (Playa Girón) to initiate what they thought would be the overthrow of the revolutionary government headed by Fidel Castro. Cuban revolutionaries, led by Fidel, celebrate defeat of invasion of Bay of Pigs.Within hours, their invasion had failed miserably. All were either killed or captured. The survivors later confessed to having been trained and equipped for the invasion by the U.S. government.What they and their CIA handlers had failed to notice was that the remote area where they landed had once been poor and neglected, but its people had gained enormously since the Cuban Revolution. The local militia put up a strong and successful resistance to the CIA invasion that lasted for many hours before the national revolutionary army was able to arrive, with Fidel at its head, and take most of the invaders prisoner.Cuba later released them to U.S. authorities in exchange for $53 million in food and medical supplies — and the freedom of Francisco Molina. Molina, a Cuban worker living in New York City, had been falsely accused of murder while Fidel was attending U.N. events. Instead of reporting on the strong international support for Fidel, blazing headlines in the tabloids labeled Molina, who had lost a hand in an industrial accident in the city, “The Hook.” He was eventually freed in the prisoner exchange — and then welcomed back to Cuba as a hero.Griswold served as executive secretary of the Committee to Free Francisco Molina.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

News website’s blocking must end, and must be declared illegal

first_img KyrgyzstanEurope – Central Asia April 3, 2013 – Updated on January 20, 2016 News website’s blocking must end, and must be declared illegal October 9, 2020 Find out more Follow the news on Kyrgyzstan News Reporters Without Borders calls for an end to Kyrgyzstan’s 13-month-old blocking of the Ferghana news website and urges the Kyrgyz judicial system to overturn last week’s court decision dismissing Ferghana’s attempt to get the blocking declared illegal.The leading source of Russian-language news coverage of Central Asia, Ferghana has been blocked in Kyrgyzstan since February 2012 as a result of a parliamentary resolution and a formal request that the State Communications Agency (GAS) sent to Internet Service Providers without reference to the courts.The legal action that Ferghana brought against the GAS in November, accusing it of blocking the website illegally and extrajudicially, was unexpectedly terminated on 27 March by a judge, who ruled that the legally permitted period for such a lawsuit had expired. The head of the GAS meanwhile said that ISPs could unblock the site but has not issued any formal instruction to that effect.Reporters Without Borders calls on the courts to reopen the case on appeal and to issue a clearly ruling that the blocking was illegal. At the same time, it urges Kyrgyz ISPs to unblock access without waiting for any ruling or instruction.“It looks as though the Kyrgyz judicial system is trying to wriggle out of an embarrassing case, but this is unacceptable,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The illegal blocking of Ferghana is an extremely dangerous precedent for freedom of information and the rule of law, and it must be explicitly condemned so that it does not recur.“Kyrgyzstan’s honour is at stake. Treating Ferghana in the same way that Turkmenistan’s and Uzbekistan’s autocratic rulers do is unworthy of a country that aspires to be a regional model of parliamentary democracy.”The Kyrgyz parliament called for access to Ferghana to be blocked on the grounds that its coverage of violence in southern Kyrgyzstan in June 2010 was “subjective” and “provocative.”Reporters Without Borders thought the news agency’s coverage was “exemplary” and wrote to the parliament asking it to reverse this decision. However, Ferghana was also criticized by some politicians for frequently raising questions about the future of Kyrgyz democracy and the rise of nationalism in the country.Throughout the case brought by Ferghana, the GAS tried to place all the responsibility for the blocking on the parliament and the ISPs. The head of the GAS, Almaz Kadyrkulov, claimed that the letter it sent to the ISPs asking them to block the site was just a “recommendation.”The day after last week’s court decision terminating the hearings, Kadyrkulov told the newspaper Vecherniy Bishkek: “Operators have the right to unblock the website, and I don’t care at all.”But Ferghana managing editor Daniil Kislov told Reporters Without Borders that Kadyrkulov’s comment would not suffice.“According to our sources, some ISPs are going to ask the GAS to confirm in writing whether they can lift the blocking of the site,” he said. “They will not stop the filtering until they have received (explicit) authorisation. The other ISPs, which pay even more attention to the authorities, will maintain the status quo.“As far as we are concerned, the judge’s decision to terminate the hearings on far-fetched grounds and the comments by the head of the GAS do not change anything. We are going to continue our fight to obtain justice and respect for legality in this case, however naïve this ambition may seem.”Kislov added: “Our goal is get the parliamentary resolution on the blocking of our site rescinded and obtain a properly argued court decision on the banning.”Read our previous releases on this case.
