Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter The strong performance of the sports betting and casino verticals helped Spanish online gaming revenue grow 25.5% year-on-year in 2018.Total market gross gaming revenue rose to €669.3m (£599.5m/$784.5m), with customer deposits up 53.5% to €2.5bn, according to figures from Spain’s igaming regulator La Dirección General de Ordenación del Juego (DGOJ)
Sports betting was the star performer in 2018, with GGR rising 18.1% to €365.1m, accounting for 52.2% of the market total. Players wagered €7.0bn on sports during the year, a 27.8% rise from 2017, with in-play betting proving particularly popular.Live betting accounted for €4.8bn – or 68.3% – of amounts wagered, followed by pre-match, fixed-odds betting which was responsible for €2.0bn (28.9%) of stakes.While betting was the largest vertical in terms of revenue, casino grew rapidly in 2018, with GGR up 38.9% to €238.0m, giving it a 34.0% share of the Spanish market. Players staked €8.2bn on casino games, up 33.1% year-on-year, predominantly playing slots.Slot machines accounted for €130.2m of revenue, up 50.6%, far ahead of the second most popular game, live dealer roulette, with generated revenue of €47.1m.Spanish poker, boosted by the cross-border network with France and Portugal, enjoyed a strong year. GGR was up 37.1% to €81.8m, with cash game stakes and tournament fees rising 31.1% to €2.1bn.Despite seeing revenue grow 17.4% year-on-year, bingo lagged behind with revenue of €13.4m for the year. Contests was the only product vertical to report a decline in revenue for 2018, with GGR down 82.2% to €1.0m.The year, which included the Fifa World Cup, also saw a significant increase in marketing expenditure by licensees, with total marketing spend up 48.0% to €328.5m. This was driven by a €168.1m outlay on advertising, up 62.5%, and a 34.0% increase in investment in promotions.This increased marketing investment appeared to have a knock-on effect on player growth, with the monthly average of active player accounts up 28.4% to 833,525.last_img read more

President Maithripala Sirisena ousted Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe three weeks ago, replacing him with Mahinda Rajapaksa. He then suspended Parliament for two weeks and also announced that it would be dissolved, but that decision was suspended by the country’s Supreme Court after supporters of the deposed Prime Minister sought a judicial review.Read the full article here.

Ana Betancourt: An imperishable Cuban woman

first_imgThis guest article was contributed by friends in Cuba.By Rosa María Oliva Enríquez and Ildefonso Gustavo Díaz SandovalAna Betancourt1832-1901Ana Betancourt de Mora was born in Camagüey, Cuba, on Dec. 14, 1832. As with all young, wealthy Cuban women, she took classes in religion, sewing, embroidery, music and home economics.At the age of 22, she married Ignacio Mora y de la Pera, a young educated man who believed in independence and who was, according to Ana, “her teacher and her best friend.”At the very beginning of the Ten Years War [against Spain] on Oct. 10, 1868, Mora was one of the first to join the liberating armed forces, while Ana devoted herself to sending materiel and clothes to the rebels, as well as writing and distributing revolutionary propaganda.Chased by the Spanish authorities, she joined the rebels in Guáimaro on Dec. 4, 1868, exchanging the serenity of her home for the martyrdom of war.On April 14, 1869, her voice was heard in Guáimaro, headquarters of the Constituent Assembly, when in a speech full of patriotism she proclaimed the redemption of the Cuban woman: “Citizens: the woman, in the dim and quiet corner of the home, was waiting patiently and resigned to this beautiful hour in which a new revolution breaks her yoke and unties her wings.”And she added: “Citizens: here everything was enslaving: the cradle, the color and the sex. You want to destroy the slavery of the cradle, fighting until death. You have destroyed the slavery of color, emancipating the slave. The moment has arrived to liberate the woman!”Together with her husband in the jungle, she worked on the newspaper “The Mambí,” which featured interesting articles about the life of the mambises [guerrilla Cuban independence soldiers] in the countryside, as well as the independence ideals of those Cubans committed to the fight.On July 9, 1871, Betancourt and her husband Ignacio were surprised by enemy guerrilla warfare in Rosalía del Chorrillo. Thanks to a ruse, she saved her husband’s life, but she was taken prisoner, as arthritis in her legs prevented her from fleeing. The [captors] kept her outdoors under a ceiba [tree] for three months in the savanna of Jobabo as bait to attract Colonel Mora.Pressed to write to her husband to ask him to lay down his arms, Ana answered energetically: “I prefer to be a widow of a man of honor than to be the wife of a man without dignity and tainted.”In these conditions she had to bear with even a simulated execution. On Oct. 9, 1871, she managed to escape and hid in Havana but was located and deported to Mexico. A short while later she settled in New York.In 1872 she visited the president of the United States, Ulysses Grant, asking him to intercede in favor of pardoning the medical students imprisoned for the events of November 1871. That same year she went to reside in Kingston, Jamaica, where in November 1875 she received news of the execution of her husband. She returned to Cuba with the signing of the Pact of El Zajón [which ended the Ten Years War].In 1882 she returned to New York, and in 1889 she went to Spain, where she devoted herself to transcribing the wartime diary of her husband, while also maintaining active correspondence with Gonzalo de Quesada and other Cuban patriots. She converted her sister’s house into a site of revolutionary activity.On Feb. 7, 1901, during a cold and dark evening in Madrid, the celebrated patriot from Camagüey, Ana Betancourt, died far from her natal soil, which was occupied at the time by the United States. Seventy-seven years later, her ashes were brought to Cuba and deposited, with well-deserved honor, in the mausoleum of the Cuban Revolutionary Armed Forces, before finally being placed in the mausoleum raised to her memory in Guáimaro.Of her Carlos Manuel de Céspedes, the Father of the Homeland, said: “A woman, ahead of her century, asked for the emancipation of the woman in Cuba.”Women like Ana multiply in Cuba; imperishable examples have remained in the history, which together with her progressive dreams have also defended the inalienable rights of the woman.Names like Magdalena Peñaredonda, Amalia Simone, Mariana Grajales, Melba Hernández, Haydeé Santamaría, Celia Sanchez Manduley, Vilma Espín are, among others, worthy representatives of women’s rights in Cuba, [expressing] the deepest longings of women for social equality.Since the victory of the Socialist Revolution in January 1959, Cuban women have been present in all fronts: occupying management positions in the different political, labor and social organizations and in departments, as well as fulfilling diverse and dissimilar tasks in health, education, art, sport and agriculture, among other areas.They grow bolder day after day, raising higher the example of the charisma and the tireless labor of these “Marianas,” who hoist the flag in defense of all the principles to which women have the right as tireless fighters for the solidarity and the unity of the people.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

(Samantha Knapp/Staff Reporter) ReddIt COVID-19 changes TCU students’ religious practices Facebook ReddIt printHealthcare professionals spoke at TCU’s annual Crossroads Lecture on Faith and Public Life about challenges to their faith during the pandemic. The lecture, entitled “Vocation, Faith and COVID-19,” featured discussion among TCU alumni in the health care industry. Dr. Ryan Huey (’08) and Rachel Rudberg (’17) said the pandemic did not change the things they were seeing on a daily basis. “I see horrible things happening to people all the time, so COVID-19 has not really changed that considerably,” Huey said. As a gastrointestinal medical oncologist, Huey said he meets patients during the worst parts of their lives. He had to balance faith and reality as the pandemic began. “Early on there was not this superhero sense that God is going let me do this job and let me be awesome at it and nothing is going to go wrong,” he said. “That would be a nice story to write but I can’t do that.”Read more: The Office of Religious & Spiritual Life to host eighth annual Crossroads Lecture While COVID-19 has not affected how their faith interacts with their work life, the pandemic has changed how Rudberg and Huey connect to their religious communities.Rudberg, who grew up in both Orthodox and Conservative Jewish environments and was president of TCU Hillel, said she has not been able to have a sense of community and complete many of the prayers during the pandemic.“Rabbis have come up with new rules to practice the 613 commandments without breaking Jewish law,” Rudberg said.Huey said he lost his sense of in-person community at church but was able to “de-facto” lead a small group via Zoom.During their weekly meetings, the small group reflected on members’ feelings, what the Bible had to say and words of encouragement.
