Online casino up in Portugal as sports betting flattens

first_img Email Address Portugal has reported a year-on-year increase in igaming revenue during the first quarter of the year, due in part to a rise in online casino.Total online gaming revenue for the three months to March 31 totalled €33.8m ($40.4m), which is €2.5m more than in the corresponding period last year, but down €2.7m on the final quarter of 2017. Figures from national gambling regulator Serviço Regulação e Inspeção de Jogos do Turismo de Portugal (SRIJ) also showed that online casino revenue was up by 18% year-on-year to €16.4m. Slots were responsible for 55.7% of online casino revenue in the first quarter, with poker holding an 18.6% market share and French roulette on 16.1% and blackjack 9.6%. However, while online sports betting remained the main source of revenue with a total of €17.4m for the period, this amount was flat year-on-year and down by more than €3m on the last quarter of 2017. Football accounted for over three-quarters of total online sports betting revenue, with basketball some way behind in second with a 10.6% and then tennis with 9.6%.Related article: Portugal posts €122.6m in online revenue for first full year AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter 14th May 2018 | By contenteditor Portugal has reported a year-on-year increase in online gambling revenue during the first quarter of the year Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Online casino up in Portugal as sports betting flattens Tags: Card Rooms and Poker Online Gambling Regions: Europe Western Europe Portugal Casino & games Topics: Casino & games Finance Sports betting Pokerlast_img read more

Six Nations: England 61-21 Scotland

first_imgTAGS: Highlight England have won the Six Nations Championship with a game to spare. They have claimed the Calcutta Cup after blasting Scotland 61-21. And they are now the joint-record holders for the most consecutive Tier One Tests won in a row, with their 18th victory on the spin. And while you get to grips with the fact that England have matched the All Blacks’ record, it is worth noting that in this win England put more points past Scotland than they ever have before at Twickenham and in the process won with their biggest ever margin over the Scots.There were handbags, there were histrionics and there were disjointed passages, but in the end there was a clear winner in this particular fight – and it became pretty obvious pretty early.England utilised fine set-piece attack and up-front dominance to rack up a score that had the Scots dizzied before half an hour had passed. The Gray brothers dug in and Hamish Watson got on with it, but while two Huw Jones tries and a Gordon Reid score sounds okay, they were so far away from their hosts who scored seven.England were very good for their hefty win with hat-trick-scoring Jonathan Joseph standing out for his try heroics but his back-five forwards laid the groundwork for a memorable day. Saving grace: Huw Jones gets one of his two triesWHAT’S HOTEngland’s lineout attack – Forget sixes and sevens, England’s passing from off-the-top lineout ball sliced Scotland into decimal points. Three first-half tries came from first-phase lineout attack. Joseph’s second try was a prime example of this. Courtney Lawes plopped the ball off the top, the ball was passed out so it slid behind a dummy runner, Ford hit his Bath team-mate and he was at the races again. England’s third was just as silky, with slight of hand by Ford and Farrell again unleashing Joseph who then handed off to a scoring Watson.Farrell’s boot – Why was anyone worried about his match fitness? He flew threw this game looking like his body was totally fine and as for kicking there was nothing too far out for him to take on. He finished with 26 points to his name.Cutting edge: Jonathan Joseph had a very day at the office against Scotland’s centresAtmosphere – It could feel oppressive at times when Scotland were under the hammer, but it roared the other way when Scotland staged a mini mutiny. The Scots will be particularly disappointed in their defence, but there were a few moments of delight for those hearty travelling fans.WHAT’S NOTThe Twickenham jitters – From the start it was clear Scotland were so fired up they could have melted steel. But have you ever tried to hold your hand steady with that much adrenaline swilling around your body? Well two minutes in Fraser Brown had a rush of blood, trying to obliterate Elliot Daly, and lifted him above the horizontal. Yellow. Then shortly after, Joseph scored by scything past Alex Dunbar. There was a lot of joy between those blue centres. The visitors took a long, long time to settle.Shirt-grabbing and shoving – Between the tries being scored, we may have had some rugby. But with every break in play there was some minor tussles. And if you think that sounds exciting, it most certainly wasn’t. It just ate up athletes’ energy. Energy that could have best been put to use elsewhere… Handbags at dawn: There was a lot of needless needle in this contestScottish injury woes – Scotland lost Stuart Hogg, Mark Bennett, Ryan Wilson, and Tommy Seymour to injury. That is incredibly tough to deal with and Scotland did well to hold it together as they did with a remarkably makeshift backline. They’ll need to pull together for their game against Italy. Three tournament wins are still attainable and, remember, it’s Vern Cotter’s last match as head coach.STATISTICS5 – The number of line breaks Jonathan Joseph made in the first half alone. He finished the first 40 with 104m run.11 – The number of penalties Scotland conceded, compared to Scotland’s five.15 – Joe Launchbury completed more tackles than anyone else, with 15.

North Carolina arrestees: ‘Toppling white supremacy is not a crime!’

first_imgA letter from #DefendDurham arrestees to the MovementFrom Charlottesville to Durham to the White House —Tear down white supremacy!Aug. 12 marked a day of resistance in Charlottesville, Va. For months, it had been a frontlines site of progressive forces organizing to remove the symbols of the Confederacy from their town. The call from a local white nationalist to “Unite the Right” to defend these “cherished” symbols of white supremacist ideology came to a head on Aug. 12. More than 1,000 fascist, white nationalist and neo-Nazi groups converged and occupied the town, terrorizing the community and instigating violent confrontations.We honor the thousands of resisters who confronted them, and we honor Heather Heyer, an anti-racist activist murdered that day.On Aug. 14, reeling from the images and firsthand stories from Charlottesville, anti-racist and anti-fascist activists in Durham, N.C., decided that Durham’s own Confederate monument had to go. Hundreds of Durham residents attended the event, where HBCU student and Workers World Party member Takiyah Thompson scaled a ladder and placed a rope around the statue, throwing the rope to the crowd, inviting folks to tear down the white supremacist symbol. The result was the successful and much celebrated People’s Removal of the Confederate statue.In response, Durham County Sheriff Mike Andrews has conducted a witch hunt against Durham’s Freedom Fighters. As of Aug. 31, there have been 14 arrests connected to the righteous takedown of the statue. Many of us are facing felony and misdemeanor charges. Simultaneously, those arrested have been targeted by the so-called “alt-right” through doxxing, hate mail and death threats.Sept. 12 marks one month since Charlottesville. It is also the next court appearance for nine of us facing felony and misdemeanor charges related to Aug. 14. We are calling on anti-racist, anti-fascist people of conscience everywhere — across the world — to organize solidarity actions in your city from Sept. 11 through Sept. 17 or join us in Durham, to boldly and unapologetically proclaim: Toppling white supremacy is not a crime!The present carries remnants of the pastWhat we witnessed in Charlottesville cannot be separated from the origins of the United States, the history of the U.S. South and the rise of fascist ideology in the last century. We are part of historic ideological struggles.There are two sides: justice, equity and freedom, and the other side of domination, exploitation and oppression. We are not in a post-racial age. White supremacists today use the same arguments that slavers and eugenicists use(d) to justify violence and death of Black, poor and disabled people in this country.We know that we cannot predict what this new period will hold — both opportunities for unity, and new, expanded threats. Today’s white supremacists are emboldened by the Trump regime. Widespread poverty, joblessness and suffering mean that entire segments of the population are considered disposable. Many have become prison slave labor. Meanwhile, many poor whites cling to rhetoric that scapegoats migrants, Muslims and poor Black communities as the cause of their own sufferingLaw enforcement: White supremacist enablers and property protectorsWe say to Sheriff Mike Andrews: We will not let you bully, intimidate and isolate the people’s resistance. END YOUR WITCH HUNT! DROP THE CHARGES NOW!We ask Sheriff Mike Andrews: Why have you prioritized punishing those who removed a racist statue over taking responsibility for the lives of the six prisoners who have recently died in your jails? Instead of sending 15 squad cars and 2 ambulances to look for a ladder at the home of anti-racist activists, we want you to stop lying about your ongoing collaboration with Immigration and Customs Enforcement to terrorize families and steal children from school bus stops. Instead of pushing for inhumane video visitations for the family and friends of prisoners, take responsibility for the death of 17-year-old ‘Niecy’ Fennell and step down from office.The sheriff’s decision to prioritize property over people is nothing new. InCharlottesville, countless witness accounts confirm that Charlottesville police stood idly by as demonstrators were attacked by white supremacists. The U.S. is full of overt and covert instances of collaboration and overlap between the Ku Klux Klan and law enforcement.What are the real crimes in society? Removing racist statues? Or terrorizing Black, Brown and undocumented people? We say that prisons, raids, homelessness, poverty and police violence are the real crimes against humanity.You cannot stop us! We will take ‘em all down!A sleeping giant is waking. Not only do the people have the right to remove symbols and institutions of racism — we have the power. We are unafraid. We will not be complicit. We will not stand by. And we need everyone to become a soldier in this struggle.The ideology behind erecting Confederate statues is the same ideology that defunds historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs); that rescinds DACA; that pays police to protect property rather than sending aid to Black communities facing floodwaters; that pits workers against LGBTQ people through transphobic hysteria; that characterizes Muslims as terrorists while carrying out massive surveillance programs at home and abroad; that passes preemptive laws that limit local government and curb organizing and free speech; that wages international wars against Black and Brown people.Durham removed our statue ourselves because it was the only way to do the right thing. Freedom Fighters took on the Nazis and Klan in Charlottesville because they had to.Because we believe in and love our people.Toppling racism is an act of love.In order to win our future, we must understand our history, the history of poor and working-class people, the history of people of color who have been resisting repression and domination on this soil since Columbus. We call on the spirit of Harriet Tubman and John Brown to guide and inspire us to be bold and to take risks. Every opportunity in front of us is one where we can choose unity and action, or silence and complicity. We urge you to choose the first, to forge a collective path toward liberation for us all.Organize where you are to topple racism and white supremacy! Use this moment to lift up and link up ongoing work to expose and undermine an ideology that refuses to recognize the full humanity of the majority of people on this planet. The time is now to reclaim public spaces; to change the course of history; to forge a new future.Visitations, not video! Black Lives Matter! Defend migrants!Abolish prisons, ICE & the Pentagon! End attacks on organizers!Smash capitalism! Topple white supremacy!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
