GVC Holdings has bolstered its Australian operations with a deal to acquire Neds International, the online sports betting operator founded by former Ladbrokes Australia chief executive Dean Shannon.The operator will pay an initial AUS$68m (£39m/€43m) for the Neds business, with the maximum consideration capped at $95m.While Neds only launched late in 2017, it has invested heavily in marketing to build its profile, and is supported by a proprietary technology platform and led by an experienced executive in Shannon. This has helped the business grow rapidly, with the operator expecting customer stakes to hit $1bn and gross gaming revenue to reach $100m for its financial year ended December 31st, 2018.“Australia is a core market for the Group and today’s acquisition further strengthens our position,” GVC chief executive Kenny Alexander said. “Neds is an exciting business, with talented people and enables us to further grow market share through two differentiated brands.”GVC notes that combining Neds and Ladbrokes Australia will create one of the three largest businesses in the market, as well as achieving annual synergies of around $16m. The deal is expected to be earnings accretive from 2020 onwards.It could also see Neds’ executive chairman Shannon rejoin Ladbrokes Australia, having left the company in February last year to start up a new venture. He first joined the business in September 2013 after Ladbrokes acquired his previous online betting business, Bookmaker.com.au, in a $22.5m deal.

Current Ladbrokes Australia chief executive Jason Scott is to continue in his role to oversee both companies, noting that he was “thrilled” to do so.“The transaction proves beyond all doubt that GVC is here to stay in the Australian market,” Scott added.

A senior figure in Spanish politics has called for an all-out ban on commercial gambling advertising.Francisco Fernández Marugán, Spain’s citizens’ rights ombudsman, has recommended that the government explore the total prohibition of advertising related to gambling and betting in the media, radio, television and internet. Exemptions should be made for games provided by the State Administration (SETAE) and the Spanish Organisation of the Blind (ONCE), he said.Should the government choose not to impose a complete ban, Fernández Marugán wants an extension of the times at which advertising is prohibited and rules that prevent celebrities from promoting gambling.As well as calling for the government and regions to study further advertising prohibitions, Fernández Marugán has also demanded an overhaul of gambling regulations with a review of licences and laws and sanctions related to the industry.Fernández Marugán, a long-serving Spanish Socialist Workers’ Party (PSOE) member of the Spanish Congress, said he was acting after a series of complaints from members of the public.“In the opinion of the Ombudsman, the phenomenon of spreading the game without control, and especially if the players are minors, has characteristics similar to those of tobacco or drug use,” read a statement from the Ombudsman’s office.“In this line, [the Ombudsman] has received complaints from citizens for the constant and continuous publicity on television and online media of advertisements of bookmakers.“For this reason, and after studying the information provided by both ministerial departments, the Institution considers that active policies of responsible gambling aimed at strengthening the protection of the most vulnerable to addiction should be reinforced.”The Ombudsman believes gambling operators should not be protected by rules designed to promote the freedom of business, describing gambling as “a public health issue that requires a regulatory framework with imperative legal norms, since a model of self-regulation would not be effective in this economic activity.”While public authorities do not have to carry out the Ombudsman’s recommendations, they are required to respond within a reasonable time. The Ombudsman’s office told iGamingBusiness.com that the degree of acceptance of its resolutions is high, at around 75%.In the PSOE’s budget for 2019, the government outlined plans to introduce restrictions similar to those placed on tobacco. In 2005, Spain introduced regulations that prohibit the sponsorship of tobacco products, as well as all kinds of advertising and promotion in the media, with a handful of exceptions.The budget claims such measures are necessary because sports broadcasts are “flooded with ads that offer live betting,” which is “generating serious addiction problems.”While this budget was rejected, prompting a snap election, the PSOE pledged to introduce a range of restrictions on gambling in its manifesto. The party then fell short of the 176 seats required to form a government, but remains the largest party in the Spanish parliament and is negotiating with other parties to form a ruling coalition.In the manifesto, it pledged to also introduce restrictions on inducements to gamble such as welcome bonuses for igaming, and increase taxes to fund the prevention and treatment of social issues arising from gambling. It will also look to close betting shops, and replace them with new social centres for young people across the country.Statistics from the Dirección General de Ordenación del Juego (DGOJ) regulator show that gambling operators’ marketing spend grew by more than 50% year-on-year to around €80m in the first half of 2018.Image: Alfredo Pérez Rubalcaba Legal & compliance Email Address Topics: Legal & compliance A senior figure in Spanish politics has called for an all-out ban on commercial gambling advertising and review of licensing regulations.

Tags: Online Gambling Casino & games AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Email Address Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Most Influential Women 2019: Part 2 Topics: Casino & games People Sports betting Regions: Europe US The second installment of iGB’s Most Influential Women list 2019 Last year we launched the iGaming Business Most Influential Women list in a bid to raise the profile of women in the industry. Now in its second year, the survey aims to showcase the achievements of women in igaming, as well as inspire those looking to move up the career ladderThis is the second part of a three-part series online. To read more about how the list was compiled, why it continues to be necessary and who the judges were, see Most Influential Women 2019.Therese Hillman, CEO, NetEnt When asked how she feels about having been described as the “Denise Coates of content”, Hillman (pictured above left) responds with: “She is so inspiring and she is kind of the guiding star if you learn about her background… I think that is the nicest thing I’ve ever heard.”Hillman is humble about her own achievements thus far at the helm of NetEnt – after only a year and a half in the top job she says it’s too early to be “ranking achievements” – but very clear she is adopting a different style of leadership at the content giant.“We need to be much more innovative. We need to have the characteristics of a smaller company and a challenger company that we used to have. You can’t pretend that you are a big company and that you will dominate the industry for ever because that is not the market that we are in.”Insiders say she’s changing the culture of the company and certainly the recent acquisition of Red Tiger, the first acquisition in the company’s history, signals a distinct shift in thinking. Her strategic approach is perhaps no surprise given Hillman was introduced to the industry after taking on a role as board member at Kindred in 2015 while also CEO of sports nutrition company Gymgrossisten.Though a relative newcomer to igaming, she says the transition wasn’t difficult. “The ecommerce industry is very similar to the igaming business. It is different products but then everything else is about customer acquisition and online marketing, as well as platforms and payments.”Her sports background also helped her remain somewhat oblivious to any glass ceiling in the industry. “When you play sports and when you are very competitive, you are always competing with men so because this was my background I actually never thought that much about it. I always thought, ‘Why couldn’t I be as good as they are?’”Lee-Ann Johnstone, founder, Affiliate Insider If there is anyone who could truly claim to have a 360-degree view of the affiliate industry, it’s Johnstone. She started out in the digital marketing industry in her native South Africa almost 20 years ago, during a period she describes as the “dark ages” of the internet. Since then, her career has involved building affiliate networks and sites, as well as working for operators, networks and payment companies. After six years at Paysafe, during which time the company acquired Skrill and Income Access, Johnstone struck out on her own and in late 2017 launched Affiliate Insider.Coming shortly after Gambling Commission and Advertising Standards Authority crackdowns in the UK and the closure of Sky Bet’s affiliate programme, the move couldn’t have been more timely. Recognising a gap in the market for business coaching, education and training for both affiliates and affiliate managers, Johnstone launched the agency and now describes herself as “an evangelist for the affiliate industry”.Dubbed by others as “a powerhouse” and a “tireless campaigner for affiliate development”, some have pondered when Johnstone finds time to sleep. “When work is your passion, it is not a job. I sleep six or seven hours a day like everybody else, but the rest of the day I’m busy doing what I love,” she explains.Acknowledging that the affiliate industry does have a lack of women, Johnstone says she is keen to encourage more into the sector. “Whenever there is a ‘women in gaming’ event, be it teaching, coaching or talking, I’m always open to giving my time to be part of it. I have had a very good experience in gaming as a woman and I think anybody entering this industry will have the same experience.”Mandy Ross, CIO, Tabcorp When Australian gaming giants Tatts and Tabcorp merged in late 2017, Mandy Ross went from being CIO of the former to CIO of one of the world’s largest listed gaming companies.“My role effectively doubled overnight post-merger,” she says. “The two organisations were of a similar size and we basically had two or more of every type of technology one could imagine, so without a doubt it was a challenge.”The fact Tabcorp was at a point where it was reinventing itself to compete in the Australian market only added to the pressure. “While we were integrating we had to continue our transformation activities, we didn’t have the luxury of being able to stop everything else. It has been a bit like performing open heart surgery while the heart is still beating, or trying to refuel a plane in mid-air.”Ross, however, had more than 10 years’ experience at C-level, having first been promoted to a CIO post while working for travel website Wotif.com in her late 20s, something she admits is relatively unusual. Australia, like the UK and the US, suffers from a lack of young women choosing STEM careers, but this is something Ross aims to change via her work with groups that support women at earlier points in their career.“I see my role as telling my story and being visible, because I know when I was coming through over the last two decades, there weren’t many women who I could look to who were ahead of me on the career path.”Her advice for those looking to follow in her footsteps is to scrutinise potential employers. “Do your homework and when you are being interviewed make sure you are effectively interviewing the company,” she says.Anna Sainsbury, founder and chair, GeoComply It’s regularly said that the most successful igaming start-ups come from those within the industry recognising a gap in the market and filling it. This is certainly true of Anna Sainsbury and GeoComply. Having spent her early career in the coffee and insurance industries, Sainsbury moved into the gaming industry in 2005, working in compliance and regulation roles. While working as a consultant for the Washington DC lottery in 2011, Sainsbury realised that the geolocation software used in other markets wasn’t going to cut it in the US and shortly afterwards founded GeoComply with David Briggs.Fast forward to the launch of igaming in New Jersey in 2013, and all bar one of the state’s operators had signed with the company thanks to its ability to accurately pinpoint users’ locations right up to state borders. Today, the technology is used in 43 states by the likes of DraftKings, Caesars, MGM, William Hill and FanDuel. The company is more than just a supplier, however, and also plays a role in influencing legislation as it spreads across the states.“In most states that have a bill that is quite serious, we end up being invited to present how the technology works to make sure gaming is fair, that vulnerable people are going to be considered and that gaming is only going to happen within state borders,” she says.Sainsbury has even spoken at federal and state hearings. Last year, she moved from the role of CEO to chair. “It allows me to think about the general direction of where we want to go and where we want to contribute, versus really spending a lot of time on the day-to-day operations of the business,” she says. GeoComply recently passed the 100-employee mark and has just launched IDComply, a KYC product that integrates with its geolocation software.Click here to go to Part 3 of iGB’s Most Influential Women 2019 list.Related articles: Most Influential Women 2019 20th November 2019 | By Joanne Christie

Tags: Remote Gambling Act Sander Dekker “This will improve the quality of the information and the interest of the player to protect them from gambling addiction monitored.” In addition, van der Graff questioned whether current restrictions on certain gambling ads appearing on television before 9pm would remain in place. Dekker said that this requirement, which became law in November 2020, would remain and apply to all licensees when the market launches. The Netherlands is scheduled to open the regulated market on 1 October, after its launch was delayed several times. Dekker confirmed the latest delay in opening the market last month, with laws regulating the market now due to come into effect from 1 April. “To be able to connect sufficiently with the Dutch system of addiction treatment, it is necessary for the licensee to engage an expert organisation when compiling information regarding addiction prevention,” Dekker said.

The MP asked whether this would be implemented to allow Section B of Article 6.2 to come into force. This section of the Act sets out how advertisements must not be aimed at on people aged 24 or under.

Therefore, earlier entry into force of Article 6.2. of the Act is not necessary.” Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter In response, Dekker said that, as licensees would be required to ensure adverts do not target children or young adults as part of their licensing requirements, there is no need to implement this part of the Act at an earlier stage. Van der Graff raised a query about section 7.2 of the Dutch Remote Gambling Act (KOA), which refers to how certain articles within the Act can be implemented at different times if the government sees fit. Dekker pledges to protect children and young adults in Dutch market Ahead of the market launching, Dekker answered a series of questions from MP Stieneke van der Graff, primarily focused around the protection of players – particularly young people – when the market opens. He added that licence-holders will be required to have in place a policy to help customers avoid addiction problems and offer support to those suffering with these issues. Dekker said the proposed addiction prevention policies set out in the Act have been developed in close collaboration with experts in addiction prevention and care.
