Lottery leads Veikkaus to marginal Q1 revenue growth

first_img Finnish gaming monopoly Veikkuas has reported marginal year-on-year increases in both gaming revenue and profit for the first quarter, with growth driven by a strong performance from its lottery vertical.Gross gaming revenue in the three months to March 31, 2018, totalled €438.8m (£383.8m/$490.4m), up 0.4% on €437.0m in the corresponding period last year.Veikkuas put this primarily down to increased spending on the lottery, boosted by a record six-week rollover of the Lotto jackpot. Consumers spent a total of €108.2m on the lottery, up 26.3% last year.However, almost all other sectors saw a decline in spending, with total turnover for Q1 slipping from €805.6m to €774.0m. Casino slot games remain the most popular form of gambling with Veikkuas, despite spending down from €207.1m to €203.4m.Total customer spend on casino was down 3.7% to €257.7m, while turnover from games of chance dipped 1.0% from €335.3m to €331.8m and betting spend fell 9% from €202.8m to €184.5m.Veikkuas also noted an increase in costs for the quarter, mainly due to a 4.8% rise in regulatory costs from €38.9m to €40.8m.However, the operator was able to make some savings across certain areas, with materials and services costs down by 20.5% to €1.5m and advertising expenses falling 8.5% to €4.3m. Purchases of services also fell 17.2% to €16.1m.As a result, Veikkuas was able to post a profit of €261.5m for the quarter, up by 2.2% on €256.0m in the opening three months of 2018.Olli Sarekoski, president and CEO of Veikkaus, praised the positive start to the year in terms of the financial performance, but also said it was a difficult period for the operator as it took the decision to discontinue table gaming services in restaurants and at the Pelaamo arcades.The decision to cease these operations from the end of May will mean Veikkaus will let between 330 and 360 members of staff leave. Sarekoski noted that around 300 of these workers are on part-time contracts.“We decided to discontinue table gaming services in restaurants and at the Pelaamo arcades, as they were unprofitable and tied up a significant amount of resources,” he said.“We will take good care of both the employees who will be leaving Veikkaus and of those who will continue.“Our objective is to ensure Veikkaus’ future in the tightening digital competition, where gaming is shifting strongly towards the digital channel.”Sarekoski also addressed a recent survey that suggested the majority of Finnish citizens are in favour of abolishing the country’s current regulatory framework for gambling, which gives Veikkaus a monopoly over the market.The survey, conducted by by Finnish polling specialist Bilendi on behalf of igaming affiliate Kasino Curt, says that most Finns would instead prefer a licensing regime that would open up the market to private operators.“The monopoly status is based, in part, on Veikkaus’ competitiveness,” Sarekoski said. “We want to be able to provide games responsibly, minimising gaming-related harm even in the future, in order to channel the gaming revenue to the benefit of Finns.” Topics: Casino & games Finance Lottery Sports betting Casino & games Lottery leads Veikkaus to marginal Q1 revenue growth Finnish gaming monopoly Veikkuas has reported marginal year-on-year increases in both gaming revenue and profit for the first quarter, with growth driven by a strong performance from its lottery vertical.

The Eastside Addition in Providence, designed by 3six0 Architecture, is a 2-story addition to a Rhode Island home built in the 1920’s, reflecting the lifelong conversation of a couple that has had mutual and disconnected desires. Having finished raising a family, the couple decided to enlarge and reorganize their current home to accommodate their new lives. He is a graphic designer and avid collector of books, while she is a lover of plants and gardens. For years every nook and cranny of the house has been filled with their collection of books and memorabilia, and now with the new addition, they can enjoy open, well-organized space.Save this picture!© John HornerRecommended ProductsWindowsAir-LuxSliding Window – CurvedWindowsVitrocsaMinimalist Window – SlidingWindowsC.R. LaurenceCRL-U.S. Aluminum Unit-Glaze SystemWindowsSky-FrameRetractable Insect Screen – Sky-Frame FlyThe innate oppositions of the project were the source of the concept: books vs. plants, storage vs. space, light vs. shade, library vs. garden, systematic organization vs. informal experience, and privacy vs. engagement of the outside. Save this picture!© John HornerA framework was formed of deep, equally spaced fins. The depth of the fins forms a protective zone, creating a deep private enclosure. The fin’s depth, adjusted to accommodate a bookcase, fulfills the many conflicting programmatic needs. Book storage and file cabinets fill much of the space in the library, wardrobe, and the new master bedroom. The east wall of the library became a plant conservatory, with the deep fins preventing direct sunlight from falling too far into the room. The fins themselves are conceived as infrastructure, ducting air and forming lights. Symbolically, the fin-based module gives a sense of measure, order, and unity; a very satisfying way of understanding the space. Save this picture!© John HornerWindows are sized and located according to the fins system, operable ones placed on the inner, more easily reached face of the “thick blank,” and fixed ones on the outer face. Windows are also calibrated to screen neighbors, but yet capture garden views. Because of the depth of the fin wall, windows can precisely control undesired views. Upstairs in the master bedroom, the eastern corner of the ceiling is lifted in a veil-like fashion allowing the corner window to rise in response to the sunrise. This corner has become a contemplative spot with the opposite western corner, where its window reaches to the floor, providing a place to read and overlook the old beech and pine trees. Save this picture!© John HornerBoth the lower level and rooftop of the addition are vital parts of the design. The new addition provides a discrete treetop deck for plants and family gathering, affording distant views of the Rhode Island countryside. The lower, basement level was envisioned as a working/living space; light filters through glass flooring above in the conservatory space, as well as the garden window and door. Save this picture!© 3six0 ArchitectureThe connection between addition and house is paradoxical. the addition, expressed as a distinct pavilion in terms of form and syntax, nevertheless shares a material palette with the existing house. On the interior a distinct windowed connector bridges between old and new, yet the renovation of the kitchen and dining area has blurred the seam between new and old.

Photo by Heesoo YangThe Horned Frogs took the first step toward Madison Square Garden Wednesday, defeating Sam Houston State in the first round of the National Invitation Tournament (NIT)The top-seeded Horned Frogs triumphed over the Bearkats 82-69, propelled by a 15-2 run at the end of the first half that they never looked back from.“I’m very proud of our guys,” head coach Jamie Dixon said. “There was a lot of emotion on Sunday, a lot of disappointment. How were they gonna handle it? I thought they were terrific.”After being one of the first four teams left out of the NCAA Tournament, the Frogs began the game with the play of a team that wasn’t thrilled to be in the NIT. They made just two of their first 10 shots and had three turnovers in the game’s opening minutes. Robinson set the season record for assists with 235. Photo by Heesoo Yang“We were a little upset when we didn’t get in the tournament,” senior Alex Robinson said. “You could definitely tell that we didn’t come out with the energy we needed to and we picked it up.”The Bearkats, who finished 16-2 in Southland Conference play, came out with something to prove. They made eight of their first 13 shots and led by as much as eight midway through the first half. Following a 7-0 Bearkat run that had them up 27-19, the Horned Frogs woke up. The team went on a 15-2 and ended the first half leading by four, 34-30. They would come out in the second half right where they left off, going on an 8-2 run to push their lead to 10. They finished the second half making over 70 percent of their shots and never allowed the Bearkats to get back within striking distance. Nembhard’s two second half dunks epitomized the Horned Frogs dominance. Photo by Heesoo YangSix Horned Frogs would finish in double figures, led by JD Miller’s 15 points on 6-9 shooting. Miller played in his 137th game as a Horned Frog, becoming the school’s all-time leader in games played. He was previously tied for first with Brandon Parrish at 136 games.Miller and center Kevin Samuel were a big reason why TCU outscored Sam Houston State 50-28 in the paint, a big factor in their 13-point victory.“We had a size advantage,” Dixon said. “I thought in the second half, we talked about getting the ball inside, getting the ball inside, I don’t know that we did a great job in the first half, but I think we saw the success and in the second half we really did a good job on that.”By the final buzzer, they looked like a team that wanted to prove the selection committee wrong. Both Dixon and freshman Kendric Davis talked about how the team watched a tribute video to its 2017 NIT championship run before the game, which motivated them after the disappointment of not making the Big Dance. “I hadn’t seen it in a while, it was emotional and I think our guys saw how important it was to our guys,” Dixon said. “They saw how important it was to JD and Alex and you could see their emotion on the film. I thought it was really good for us.” Miller was one of two players on the team that was apart of the 2017 NIT championship squad. Photo by Heesoo YangWith the first of five wins under their belt, the Horned Frogs will enter Sunday’s second round match-up against Nebraska looking to channel the motivation of missing the NCAA tournament into another win.“We want to prove that we should’ve been in the tournament,” Robinson said. “So our goal is to win this whole thing.”Robinson totaled 11 assists, giving him 241 total assists this season, the most ever in a season by a TCU player. It was the 10th time this season the senior point guard has recorded at least 10 assists. Robinson also added 13 points to go with his assists, giving him his ninth double-double of the season and the 12th of his career.Tip off against Nebraska is set for 8:30 p.m. Chancellor talks stimulus money, COVID-19 vaccines and more at limited attendance faculty town hall + posts Linkedinlast_img read more

Survivors call for reopening of Redress Board

first_imgSURVIVORS of institutional abuse are calling for the reopening of The Redress Board and for more transparency on plans for a €110 million trust fund. The Right of Place/Second Chance Group believes that many people were not ready to come forward to the Board and apply for compensation while it was open, but they may now want to do so. In its recently published annual report, the group also called on the government to publish plans for the trust fund contributed to by 18 religious congregations.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Right of Place/Second Chance Outreach Co-ordinator for HSE West, Val Groarke, said the group is worried that the government are dragging their feet in coming up with criteria for recipients of the fund.He urged the government to supplement the fund on an annual basis to allow survivors who have not yet come forward, to access it.“I believe that there are a lot of people out there who didn’t get the redress,” Mr. Groarke told the Limerick Post.“Because the government had it shut down, we’re pushing for them to reopen it and leave it open for another few years.“Just because some of us were ready, it doesn’t mean that everyone was”.He said that while some survivors of institutional abuse in Limerick may have received compensation from the Redress Board, the damage inflicted continues to resonate.Mr. Groarke also called for the children of survivors to be able to access the Trust fund, explaining that what happened to survivors also affected the quality of lives of their families.The Galway/Limerick and western offices of the support group were contacted by clients 693 times from March 2011 to February 2012, and in one-fifth of these incidents, approaches were made by the dependent of a survivor.“Money doesn’t give you back what you lost, like an education,” Mr. Groarke continued.“A huge amount of our people have not worked for most of their lives and a lot would have got ‘low class’ jobs.“A lot of survivors wouldn’t be able to read or write”.Right of Place offers outreach and support to survivors in education, health, housing, employment, welfare, social issues and much more.“If they have a problem we want them to know that there is a service here. They can just lift the phone”.The Right of Place Limerick office is based in the Friends of the Elderly premises Carey’s Road, and is open to anyone who wishes to avail of its support.Meetings are held on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday mornings and are open to all to call in for a cup of tea and a chat.

Possible hurricane, now a tropical depression, could impact Gulf Coast by midweek
