The lords committee heard evidence that the UK’s biggest firms change their auditor on average only every 48 years, although some say this figure is out of date. The exception is Randgold Resources, which uses BDO for auditing services.BDO partner James Roberts said: “A lot of FTSE 100 financial directors and non-executives are alumni of the big four, so it gets very self-reinforcing.”But Pauline Wallace, a senior audit partner at PwC, said that while she supports the current OFT inquiry, a broader investigation is unnecessary: “It’s a fiercely competitive market… There’s a question about how many is enough. The four firms absolutely do compete at FTSE 100 level.”Deloitte, E&Y and KPMG declined to comment.

first_img WHAT is London? A city, yes, but so much more. It is a global centre of finance, sure. It is by some measures the world’s creative capital, from media to theatre to film; home to the world’s most popular music venue and its most popular modern art gallery. The university capital of the world, with more top universities and international students than any other city. A global leader in medical research, and the European leader in digital technology. We might not be the fashion capital quite yet, but we did give the world the business suit. The best restaurants, even the French are starting to say. More museums than Paris, less rain than Rome, a quarter the murder rate of New York. Next year, we’ll become the first city in history to host the Olympics three times.I say all this because when we asked business what the top thing is that the Mayor can do to boost the London economy, the answer came: promote it. He is in a unique position to champion London around the world, in a way that no individual company can.The Mayor inherited various agencies – Think London, to promote inward investment, Study London, to encourage international students, and Visit London, to encourage tourists. They all did a good job within their sector, but businesses urged the Mayor to merge them so we can take a more strategic and flexible approach, and get more promotional bang for our buck. Uniting them, we can promote a coherent message about London with a single brand, and promote whichever sectors give the greatest economic returns. By combining forces, we can reduce duplication and increase the firepower.After two years of preparations, we last week launched the capital’s new promotional agency – London and Partners. Despite cuts from central government, we managed to fund it from our own resources. And although mainly publicly funded, we set it up to be ruthlessly commercially-led, with a private sector board, and working in close partnership with companies as well as public agencies. From early days, Dame Judith Mayhew Jonas, chairman of the New West End Company, was very generous with her time, and we were delighted when she agreed to be the founding chairman.All we need do now is actually promote London. And what a time to do it! This month we have the Royal wedding, next year the Queen’s diamond Jubilee closely followed by the Olympics and Paralympics, with the world’s eyes upon us. London and Partners will be leading the charge in using the 2012 games to promote all that our great city has to offer the world. London might be glowing, but it is set to shine even brighter.Planning an event for 2012?

Extreme Live Gaming provides live casino solutions to the igaming industry and holds licences both in Malta and the UK. Among the business’s desktop and mobile solutions are ‘Golden Ball’, ‘Reel Roulette’ and ‘Roulette 360’. Extreme Live Gaming operates a total of 10 tables – covering roulette, blackjack and baccarat – from its studios in London. “The name Extreme Live Gaming stands for quality and innovation, and we are delighted to enhance our multi-vertical gaming strategy with this acquisition, further cementing our position as a leading industry provider,” Pragmatic chief commercial officer Melissa Summerfield said. “The popularity of live casino has grown hugely in recent years, and the vertical holds a great deal of potential. “We have every confidence that our passion and drive for going beyond our clients and players’ expectations will help us to realise that potential.” Darwyn Palenzuela, chief executive of Extreme Live Gaming, added: “We pride ourselves on providing groundbreaking live solutions both popular with players and profitable for our partners, and this acquisition will empower us to take our business to the next level.” Related article: Pragmatic Play appoints operations chief from Microgamingcenter_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Email Address Tags: Mobile Online Gambling 26th June 2018 | By contenteditorlast_img read more

Bets will be accepted up to a maximum of £50, and Vumbaca said he wants people to enjoy the challenge of putting their knowledge to the test and not be “ashamed” of gambling.The focus is on ‘rewarding entertainment’, with Pit Stop Betting providing plenty of content, including access to information, technical data and videos, to help its players make good decisions when they wager. The app’s simple and intuitive mobile interface has been designed to be operated with a single thumb.“We want a product that offers a new way to interact with betting,” Vumbaca said.Pit Stop Betting is initially live in the UK with the hope of entering other European markets later this year. It also plans to launch a number of enhancements over the next few months, including a pool betting service that again attempts to improve engagement with motorsport events.“We do have financial goals of course, but the major target at present is development and to make sure it is well received,” added Vumbaca.

first_img Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Tech & innovation Omnia Casino will introduce new benefits in Q4 as part of continuous development cycle AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter 1st August 2018 | By contenteditor Topics: Tech & innovationcenter_img Omnia Casino founder Sam Hobcraft has outlined how the world’s first casino to be supported entirely by artificial intelligence will introduce further innovations in the final quarter of this year.Hobcraft told iGamingBusiness.com that the company’s “development cycles are continuous”, with numerous innovations in the pipeline, all underpinned by AI, which is driving personalisation across a number of areas, including game recommendations, compliance and rewards.“Initially we have focused on using AI to curate a personalised product experience for our customers,” Hobcraft said.“Currently we recommend games based on demographic profiles and also ‘look-alike’ customers. The AI-based element of our platform is continually learning and improving the content shown to our customers, much like Netflix.“This will be rolled out across our store as well, to ensure the right promotions and merchandise will always be displayed to the customer.“The next area we’ll be focusing on is the personalisation of rewards. The AI will look at thousands of different data points to decide with reward we should present to a customer, at the right time. It will be truly personalised in terms of the wagering requirements and the reward that is delivered.“These will then be automatically triggered to a customer through our CRM system, via a notification, email, SMS or push notification. This will increase the personalisation and improve the customer experience and loyalty.”Omnia Casino will also build AI chatbots that will allow for 75% of customer support issues to be dealt with without human interaction. “Although chatbots are not yet at an optimal stage in our sector to be delivered to be delivered today, we anticipate this will change soon enough,” Hobcraft added.The mobile-first casino has deliberately designed its responsible gaming functionality, such as deposit limits, to be transparent and customer-friendly. Later this year, players will begin to be prompted to set a deposit limit as soon as they register.“Some of the bigger changes will come in Q4, principally focusing on store upgrades, including merchandise, in September. Setting deposit limits on registration is anticipated to be in place by November,” Hobcraft said.“While we have already delivered a huge amount in the short five months that we have been live, our modular tech stack will allow us to deliver further items to market very quickly.”Omnia Casino was founded in December 2017 by several gaming executives with track records in launching and running online and mobile casinos. Hobcraft, for example, is a former director of gaming at Betfair and managing director of casino at PokerStars.“The motivation behind building a compliance-led and 100% AI-driven casino was about mindset and starting as we mean to go on,” Hobcraft said in an earlier release. “AI is constantly evolving, and we use it to make the casino a more fun and personalised experience, with a strong focus on compliance.“We use AI to go above and beyond standard responsible gambling measures, instantly spotting problem gamblers and triggering further responsible gambling features. This instils a very strong sense of trust and transparency with our customers. “It is also about competitive advantage. We immediately present players with responsible gaming features, because these players are more loyal.” AI casino set for further innovations Email Address Tags: Mobilelast_img read more

first_imgLegal & compliance International Game Technology (IGT) has secured an interim licence to provide its PlayShot integrated sports betting platform in West Virginia, with plans to seek similar approval in other states across the US. The licence will enable IGT to seal partnerships with casino operators in West Virginia that are looking to launch sports betting services when the state moves to regulate such activities. West Virginia is yet to legalise sports wagering, but recent reports suggest the state is closing on full regulation. Earlier this month, GeoComply became the first company to secure an interim licence in West Virginia, while FanDuel in June signed a deal to provide sports betting to the Greenbrier resort.  William Hill also recently said it had agreed a sports betting partnership with an unnamed casino in the state, while Kambi in July lodged a licence application. Speaking about IGT’s new interim licence, Enrico Drago, senior vice-president of PlayDigital at the company, said: “Receiving approval from the West Virginia Lottery Commission to deploy IGT’s PlayShot sports betting solution throughout the state continues IGT’s momentum in pioneering sports betting across the U.S., and creates additional new market opportunities for IGT. “This distinction acknowledges the reliability, security and market-readiness of IGT’s PlayShot solution, and creates opportunities for IGT to further differentiate our sports betting solution in the marketplace.” IGT has been quite active in seeking out partnerships following the Supreme Court’s ruling on PASPA. In June, IGT agreed a deal to provide sports betting services to MGM Resorts International in New Jersey, while the firm is also working with FanDuel in the state.

first_img GVC Holdings has stepped up its responsible gambling efforts with a call to end all sportsbook broadcast advertising in the UK.The operator, which was the first to publicise its support for a pre-watershed advertising ban in October 2018, has now thrown its support behind extending this ban to any time of day. This would include live and repeated sporting events, with an exemption for horse racing.However GVC has suggested allowing campaigns promoting responsible and safer gambling. This, it says, should be limited to one advertising slot per commercial break.The operator said that the forthcoming pre-watershed, whistle-to-whistle advertising ban, due to be implemented from the start of the 2019-20 football season in August this year, does not go far enough. This ban was agreed by the industry late last year and added to the Gambling Industry Code for Socially Responsible Advertising by the Industry Group for Responsible Gambling (IGRG) in December.“Whilst the vast majority of our customers enjoy our products responsibly, it is high time that the industry did more to protect its customers from potential harm,” GVC chief executive Kenny Alexander (pictured) explained. “As the UK’s largest gambling company, and owner of Ladbrokes and Coral, we at GVC are doing exactly that.“I call on our industry peers to help us bring about an end to broadcast advertising which promotes sports-betting in the UK no matter the time of day.”Alongside its calls for the broadcast advertising ban, GVC has announced a series of new initiatives to tackle gambling related harm, as part of its ongoing Changing for the Bettor corporate social responsibility drive.Launched in January this year, the Changing for the Bettor initiative will see the operator invest in responsible gaming technology, support research and introduce new, voluntary controls across the business to ensure it operates in a fair and sustainable manner.Four new initiatives will be launched, with a shirt sponsorship and perimeter advertising ban the most eye-catching. This sees the operator commit to ending all football shirt sponsorship deals in the UK, and banning all advertising on pitchside hoardings. It aims to allow fans to watch live sport without any inducements to bet, and is calling on other operators, and UK football authorities, to adopt the measures.GVC will also increase its investment in research, education and treatment. It was the first – and to date, only – operator to commit to doubling its spending to 0.2% of UK gross gaming revenue in 2019, and has now committed to raising this to 1% of GGR by 2022. This will see it invest ten times the current minimum requirement.The operator will look to provide more funding to problem gambling treatment, establishing an independent trust to make charitable contributions to treatment centres. Manchester’s Leon House centre will be the first establishment to receive funding from the trust.Finally, it will make the GamBan software, founded by the team behind the Campaign for Fairer Gambling, available free of charge to individuals showing signs of developing problem gambling habits. This allows players to block access to all gambling sites in the UK via a single portal.“Increasing investment in research, education and treatment ten-fold by 2022, funding treatment centres and using technology to intervene before a problem develops, alongside our existing behavioural analytics, brings to life our commitment to be the most trusted and enjoyable betting operator in the world,” Alexander said.“The industry should and can do more to protect the vulnerable, and today’s announcement demonstrates GVC’s commitment to delivering on that.”These new initiatives follow previous measures taken as part of the Changing for the Bettor campaign, including investing $5m (£3.9m/€4.5m) in a responsible gaming study in partnership with Harvard Medical School. The campaign’s findings will be used to launch a global responsible gambling ad campaign.GVC has also agreed to provide funding to help GamCare roll out a youth outreach programme across the UK and partnered EPIC Risk Management, which will advise the operator on best practice for interacting with problem gamblers.
