However, the top four – of Pokerstars, Sisal, Lottomatica and Snai – all remained in place. Pokerstars, already the biggest online operator in the country, was perhaps the biggest winner, increasing its market share to 12.2%. Snai, previously in third place, moved into a close second with 13.2% as Planetwin365 slipped to third. Eurobet and Sisal’s market shares also exceeded 11%, closing the gap with Planetwin365 (Chart 8). 12th February 2021 | By Daniel O’Boyle Within this segment, casino and slots were the main revenue driver generating 82.4%, or €1.22bbn, of the total. This represented a 46.5% improvement on 2019’s figures (Charts 3 and 4). Email Address In online betting, Bet365 remained on top but its market share declined from 15.7% to 14.0%. The online betting giant lost its top spot in the rankings for November and December as the country went back into lockdown. This saw retail operators climb the charts, as their customers migrated online. In a year defined by the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic and resulting lockdowns, Italy’s igaming market grew 43.2% as retail closures accelerated a shift to online betting and gaming. Italy FY 2020: revenue, top 10 operators, product Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Topics: Finance Online casino Poker Full year results 2020 Online sports betting Full year results 2020 According to figures supplied by Ficom Leisure to iGB, revenue for all online verticals increased (see interactive Charts 1 and 2 below). As the online poker market grew considerably, Pokerstars’ domination continued. While its share of tournament GGR dipped slightly to 58.2%, it increased its share of cash game revenue to 46.8%. Snai was a distant second in tournament revenue, while Sisal held that spot for cash games (Charts 10 and 11). Online gaming, meanwhile, saw gross revenue climb 47.1% to €1.48bn. Meanwhile, the global boom in online poker under lockdown was reflected in a strong year for the vertical in Italy. This consolidation means that the top eight online betting operators now hold a combined 78.5% market share. The value of omni-channel products can also be seen, with six of these eight having some form of retail presence. Looking at the combined online and retail sports betting market, online-focused operators were unsurprisingly the biggest winners. Lottomatica’s market share share rising 3.6 percentage points and Bet365’s 1.7 points. However, Snai remained on top with a 1.51% market share (Chart 9). This included online sports betting, which held steady for the first half of the year despite the suspension of almost all global sports from mid-March to June, before a 74% year-on-year growth in H2 (Chart 5). As a result, total online betting revenue fell just short of €1bn (Chart 6). Tags: Ficom Leisure Christian Tirabassi Regions: Europe Southern Europe Italy Cash games and poker tournaments generated GGR of €124.3m and €82.7m respectively. The vertical’s revenue for the year totalled €207.0m, representing year-on-year growth of 50.2% and reversing the trend of decreasing GGR. Bingo GGR accounted for 3.9% of the total online gaming market, at €58.2m (Charts 2 and 3). Scroll down for the infographic to track market growth since 2016, as well as shifting revenue shares over the years. “Going forward, we expect the pure online operators to acquire Italian land-based networks (shops or land-based affiliates) in order to be able to compete in one of the largest online regulated markets in Europe,” Tirabassi added. Looking down the rankings, however, there was change as 888 overtook Eurobet as its market share grew to 6.8%, while SKS365’s PlanetWin365 saw its share grow from 4.8% to 5.3% and Goldbet moved into the top 10, with William Hill falling out (Chart 7). “The Italian land-based and online betting and gaming market is experiencing an acceleration in operators consolidation through M&A,” Ficom founder Christian Tirabassi said. “The leading operators in the online and mobile betting and gaming are companies with an omni-channel offering (online marketing plus land-based player acquisition).”

I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. The most successful investors use volatility on share markets as an opportunity to buy. They don’t duck for cover when UK shares plummet in value. They use stock market crashes as an opportunity to build top-quality stock portfolios for little cost.This approach leaves plenty of ammunition for unloved shares to rocket in value as economic conditions and profits improve. Studies show us that stock investors make a delicious average annual return of between 8% and 10% each year over the long run.

You can follow the herd and sit on your hands. Or you can do some research, buy some brilliantly-valued UK shares and sit back and watch them surge in value over time. This is what I plan to do. And these are some of the great British stocks that are on my watchlist today.Amino Technologies is an absolute steal at current prices, I feel. The business trades on a sub-1 forward price-to-earnings growth (PEG) ratio of 0.6 right now because City analysts reckon profits will keep rising by double-digit percentages over the next couple of years at least. Amino provides hardware and software for TV set-top boxes and is thus well placed to ride the explosion in on-demand streaming in the years ahead.Vistry Group (formerly known as Bovis Homes) is another cheap UK share I’m thinking of buying today. The housebuilders continue to be shunned on fears of a slump in homes demand. But I see true value here as a litany of factors, from low interest rates, disjointed government homebuilding policy, a mortgage rate war and the Help to Buy purchase scheme should drive new-build demand for years to come. Today Vistry Group trades on a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of below 10 times.FTSE 100 stock Prudential offers investors the chance to grab big dividends and low earnings multiples. The insurance colossus also trades on a forward P/E ratio of just under 10 times for 2020. And it has an inflation-beating 3% dividend yield as well. I bought the blue-chip earlier this year because I thought it was one of the best UK shares to exploit surging wealth levels in emerging markets. And I’m tempted to buy more following the stock market crash.Get rich with bargain sharesThese are only a few of the great UK shares I consider to be trading below true value today.

LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Scoring on US soil: John Moonlight scored in Las Vegas Sevens and will hope to do so again in the RWC qualifierBy Alan DymockTHE RUGBY World Cup may appear nicely teed up in the minds of fans from the traditional rugby heartlands, with spectators already looking forward to South Africa playing Scotland, Argentina playing New Zealand and almost any game in the Pool A ‘group of writhing agony.’However, all is not yet decided. Every Pool for the World Cup still needs two qualifiers from around the world and this weekend sees the first leg of Americas 1 qualifier between rivals Canada and USA. The overall winner of the two games in the next fortnight will be the first qualifier for RWC2015 and will go into Pool D with France, Ireland and Italy.Any fierce clash between the neighbours draws a certain amount of attention, but with so much riding on the next fortnight it is likely that North America may splinter like your friends when the question of ‘whose round is it?’ crops up.Canada are currently at 15 in the IRB World Rankings, with USA in at 18. Games are traditionally close between the two teams – in May Canada won 16-9 on home soil and they also won in Canada 28-25, in June of last year – and neither side want to give too much away before this vitally important fortnight.Blast from the past: Chris Wyles in ’09, the year USA last wonHowever, Rugby World managed to gain an insight into Canada’s preparation for the first weekend of brutal action at the Blackbaud Stadium in Charleston, South Carolina, the venue where the Eagles last beat Canada in a competitive match in 2009. The pressure must be great, playing for such a prize. Do you get reminded of what is at stake, or is it an incentive-free atmosphere? “We get reminded. The management put up stats to remind us how close our last few games have been. We know this is not a cakewalk.”Certainly not, but regardless of the games that have gone before or the rankings or the odds, this two-week period will be as unpredictable as it is savage. There could well be less than a beer mat between them by the end of the contest, too. One of the Canadian props revealed: “We had a scrum session yesterday to get ready for the new scrum rules – the binding prior to engagement is getting mixed reviews from our props – and we also had a controlled scrummage last night against the Ontario Blues [a regional select side] to practice our strategy for the US, and practice new scrum laws.”Canada have recently run Japan close and beaten Tonga and Fiji, but lost heavily to Ireland in June. They are aware of how far they have to go to meet the standard of the top tier nations, but much like their sevens side who have become more prominent in the last two season, Canada are ambitious and set on becoming more competitive.Large, in charge: Canadian Cudmore will playOf course, the proof of how far they have come is by getting to the World Cup and playing well when there. So the first task, which is sometimes the hardest, is converting against your most familiar foe.“We have been reviewing film and focusing on the US strengths through daily meetings,” our international prop lets slip. “They are a strong opponent for us who we can’t take lightly, but other than that, there aren’t any secrets. We played them in May and have an idea of what they do: they have strong speed in defence and great lineouts. They run hard on offence, and have weapons outside.” DUBLIN, IRELAND – MAY 18: during the Heineken Cup final match between Clermont Auvergne and Toulon at Aviva Stadium on May 18, 2013 in Dublin, Ireland.

The passionate Pumas very nearly made it to their first final, playing an exciting brand of rugby. Perhaps you think their head coach is worth your vote. Or, if you feel that the greatest performance was not from a Tier One team, but by one of the unfancied sides, then look no further than Eddie Jones of Japan – what a tournament they had! Whichever way you vote, we will put the results in the next issue of Rugby World magazine. Keep your eyes peeled. Who was your coach of the Rugby World Cup?

LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS We’re nearing the finish line for this Rugby World Cup but it’s not quite done yet. We still have the small matter of the bronze final between South Africa and Argentina – despite Springboks coach Heyneke Meyer describing the game as “like kissing your sister” – and then the colossal clash between New Zealand and Australia in the World Cup final on Saturday.Whatever the outcome, this tournament has been fun, action-packed and full of heroes. And with that we don’t just mean the players who make the breaks, score the tries and slam into tackles. We also mean the head coaches who have masterminded some of the World Cup’s greatest performances and managed some of those stars who have burned so brightly.You have four options here. Michael Cheika, in the span of a year, has turned around the fortunes of the previously floundering Wallabies, and guided them to a World Cup final. Steve Hansen has taken the immense pressure of the leading the All Blacks in his stride and also pushed them to another final.

Hong Kong’s neighbourhood Chai Wan is the next up-and-coming cultural hub on the island. As industrial activities are slowly disappearing from the area, the rough post-industrial urban fabric leaves behind a unique range of spaces and places that form the backdrop for an innovative creative scene. WING is the latest addition to what Chai Wan has on offer. Located on the top of a large waterfront industrial complex, this spacious loft / performance space is a versatile and flexible venue for contemporary dance, exhibitions, performances and events, which simultaneously allows for an instant conversion into office spaces and/or residence. By packing this multifaceted programme in a relatively small area in a derelict industrial warehouse, the project voices a strong critique to Hong Kong’s extreme housing situation, lack of cultural facilities, and its and negligence of its industrial heritage.Save this picture!© Dennis Lo DesignsSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Dennis Lo DesignsThe venue consists of two wings that open up onto a large terrace. The left wing contains a performance area with a brass volume as a backdrop that houses kitchen / bar facilities. The right wing is characterised by the ArtWall, a ten meter long, foldable wooden artwork which graphics symbolize the dynamic motion of the performances taking place. The wall operates as a lantern-like space divider between the second performance stage and offices hidden behind it, and the meeting area in front.

SHARE ITC Placing Duties on Phosphate Fertilizer Imports SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News ITC Placing Duties on Phosphate Fertilizer Imports Facebook Twitter By Eric Pfeiffer – Mar 14, 2021 The U.S. International Trade Commission says phosphate fertilizer imports from Morocco and Russia have affected the U.S. fertilizer market. The ITC also says it will place a countervailing duty on the imports from those countries. U.S. commodity groups have warned that new duties on imported phosphate fertilizers would raise prices by more than $80 a ton.A DTN report says the ITC voted 4-1 in favor of the countervailing duties. The ruling comes a month after the Department of Commerce recommended the tariffs get placed on phosphorous fertilizer imports.Mosaic filed petitions last year to request the start of a countervailing duty investigation. The company said foreign subsidies on imports are unfair and that these duties would restore competitiveness in the U.S. market.“Today’s decision upholds our belief that fair trade is the bedrock of a healthy U.S. economy and that American farmers will benefit from having a more competitive American fertilizer industry,” says Mosaic in a news release.Moroccan importer OCP says in a news release that it disagreed with the ruling and will cooperate with U.S. authorities.

As a result, Mr. Ménard cannot legally expect to able to enter Tunisia unless summoned by the judicial authority in charge of this case.’ As WSIS executive director, I believe it is my duty to bring this to your attention.” to go further News Receive email alerts Organisation November 12, 2019 Find out more
Top of the News Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS Pasadena skywatchers are likely in for a spectacular meteor display starting Thursday night if the Perseid meteor shower, which occurs every August, includes what scientists are predicting: an “outburst,” throwing anywhere from 160 to 200 meteor showers per hour into the night sky instead of the usual 80 to 100.The last time an “outburst” occurred was in 2009; after this month’s, the next one isn’t expected until around 2027, according to Bill Cooke, the head of NASA’s Meteoroid Environment Office.Every August, the shooting star display shows up when Earth travels through trails of debris left behind by the ancient Swift-Tuttle comet. During the event, pieces of the comet hit the Earth’s atmosphere at great speeds and burn up, creating spectacular trails of light in the sky before they disintegrate.Experts at Pasadena’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory say the most favorable viewing time could be between 9 p.m. Thursday and 3 a.m. Friday when the Perseid meteor shower peaks.“The constellation Perseus is visible in the northern sky soon after sunset, and the famous and reliably active Perseid meteor shower peaks in the morning hours of August 12,” JPL Outreach Specialist Jane Houston Jones says in a NASA promotional video. “The moon, which paired up so nicely with Mars and Saturn on the 11th, is bright enough to blot out some of the meteors, but lucky for you, it sets about 1 a.m. on the morning of the 12th, just at the peak time for the best Perseid viewing.”Jones said a smaller number of Perseids started streaking through the sky two weeks ago, building up to the August 11 crescendo.“It’s a huge bunch of dust that the Earth is plowing through,” Jones tells Riverside-based The Press Enterprise. “The Perseids are the mother lode of meteor showers because it’s not a one-night event.”On its website, JPL offers advice on how to maximize the Perseid meteor shower watching event, including getting as far away from “urban light pollution” as possible and finding a location with a “clear, unclouded view of the night sky.”“Put away the telescope or binoculars,” says an Asteroid Watch update on the JPL site. “Using either reduces the amount of sky you can see at one time, lowering the odds that you’ll see anything but darkness.“Instead, let your eyes hang loose and don’t look in any one specific spot. Relaxed eyes will quickly zone in on any movement up above, and you’ll be able to spot more meteors.”NASA’s Rhiannon Blaauw shared some viewing tips (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KzLknGRZlLs) in an online video to help observers watch the meteor shower Thursday night.She says it’s important to first give your eyes a chance to adjust to the dark. “I would suggest just lying on your back and taking in as much of the sky as possible,” says Blaauw. “You don’t want to look in any particular direction, just lie on your back and look straight up.” It can take about 45 minutes for your eyes to fully adjust, NASA says.NASA will also show a livestream (http://www.ustream.tv/channel/nasa-msfc) Thursday and Friday, starting at 7 p.m. Slooh, Space for Everyone, will also host a livestream of the event (http://live.slooh.com/stadium/live/perseid-meteor-shower-2016).The National Weather Service forecasts clear skies over Pasadena Thursday night into early Friday, making weather conditions almost perfect for meteor-watching.For more information and tips on watching the Perseid meteor showers, visit www.jpl.nasa.gov/asteroidwatch/meteor.php.
