Email Address Lottery Zeal’s Lottovate has today launched a lottery that gives players experiences rather than cash prizes. Will it attract the elusive younger generation, asks Joanne Christie?For most igaming firms no generation has proven more elusive than millennials.Lotteries, in particular, have struggled to find a way to connect with the younger generation, even when they’ve developed digital offerings in a bid to adapt to changing consumer shopping habits.Take the UK’s National Lottery, for example. The Gambling Commission’s 2017 annual report on gambling participation showed that while those aged 25-34 saw the biggest increase in online gambling participation, they were playing the lottery less.A similar lack of enthusiasm for lotteries among millennials has also been noted in the US.But digital lottery company Lottovate, owned by Zeal Network, thinks it may have found a way to attract this age group to lottery – by providing experiences instead of cash prizes.Its new Dutch lottery, the first new lottery for the country in nearly 30 years, is being described by the company as the world’s first “experience” lottery, so called because instead of players winning prizes, they win experiences.Raffld’s front page even boasts the tagline, “F’ck money. Make Memories”, a clear call to action for a demographic regularly reported to be more interested in funding travel than saving for a house or a pension. Experiences over things Numerous studies have revealed that millennials value experiences over things, so much so that many have taken to referring to them as NOwners. Taken in this context, perhaps an experience lottery has potential.With Raffld, rather than buying a ticket for a chance to win cash, players choose from one of four prize categories — 360 adventure, city all access, bucketlist tickets and recharge break.The winner and three friends then set off on experiences such as sandboarding in Morocco or the La Tomatina tomato fight in Valencia, depending on which category they’ve chosen. Peter-Paul de Goeij, managing director of Lottovate Netherlands, says the prizes were devised after extensive research was undertaken and interviews conducted with more than 1,000 millennials in the Netherlands. “What we did is, when we got the licence we basically threw away all the ideas that we had and said, ‘OK, let’s first speak to some consumers’.We asked them very general questions like, ‘what is your view on life, what do you think is important, would you support charities, do you ever play the lottery, if not why not’. “With the results of those over 1,000 interviews we took out the four basic elements of the answers that we’d been given by these Dutch millennials and these four elements led to Raffld.” Looking at the results of their research, it’s clear the company needed to come up with something different.The interviews, conducted by Ruigrok NetPanel for Lottovate, found that 62% played the lottery twice a year or less, whereas 85% said experiences made them more happy than money. It is undoubtedly difficult to entice the millennial generation into lotteries, says de Goeij, but doing so is vital if the vertical is to survive in future. “All lotteries know that this is the toughest group to crack because it doesn’t really matter where you go, the average age of the lottery player is older than this age bracket.“The average lottery player in the Netherlands is older than 50 years, which is, in comparison, quite old.“There is another troubling development worldwide in that the average age of the lottery player is rising.“Of course it is because people are growing older but there will be a moment when they die and that of course is the troubling thing, because if you don’t watch it your players might die out.“Every lottery worldwide wants to tap into this demographic but no one has been really successful in cracking the code.“Getting millennials to play the lottery sounds very hard but we think we’ve approached it from the right angle, which is starting with the needs of the millennial and building a lottery product that is relevant to them.” Overcoming the charity hurdle Lottovate has something of an added challenge in that it not only has to get millennials interested in lottery, but it has to get them interested in donating to charity.Its research found that more than half of those surveyed donated to charities only once every six months or less.But as part of licence conditions, it has to donate 50% of the cost of every ticket to good causes.One way it hopes to inspire millennials is by giving them the ability to choose where their funds go – as well as picking a prize category, players choose from one of four charities.At present, the options are the Ronald McDonald Children’s Fund, KNGF Guide Dogs, Conservation International and the CliniClowns.But de Goeij says they are open to adding more in future and have already been asked by players to do so.Adding in this element of choice may have been a savvy move, if a discussion during a panel at ICE earlier this year is anything to go by.The Modernising Lotteries panel included Lottovate’s Susan Standiford, along with the Health Lottery’s Yakir Firestane, former European Lotteries president Friedrich Stickler and LOT.TO co-founder Julian Bewley.The panelists agreed that when considering whether or not to play a lottery, for players the prize money was a bigger incentive than supporting charity.However, they also agreed that the good causes element of lotteries could be more engaging to players if they were given more choice about where there funds went.Standiford told the panel: “Everybody in general wants to see transparency where that charitable cause goes.“They would love to have the choice but in the very least they need to understand it is not this amorphic black hole of charitable good causes that things go into.“They really want to see that. Purpose-driven is the goal of this [Millennial] generation.”Another panellist cited a Mintel report that had asked people what it would take for them to play a different lottery to the National Lottery — among the reasons given had been the chance to have their charity donation go somewhere of their choice. There’s also a social element to the Raffld proposition. Instead of entering alone and choosing three friends to take if they win, players can enter with a group of three friends, which will increase their odds of winning. The company has not yet given detail on the odds themselves, with de Goeij saying only that, “the odds will vary per week because we cannot predict the number of participants per week.“Currently the odds are very good because of the fact we are a start-up. Every week there will be one major prize paid out”. Presumably if the lottery takes off the company will look to increase the number of experiences given away each week, though at this point de Goeij says it is too early to speculate on this.Presumably it may also look to roll the ‘experience’ model out to other nations in some form, though for now the company says it is firmly focused on the Netherlands. Even if it doesn’t expand outside the Netherlands, if it proves successful, it’s likely other lottery innovators will do so. If giving away experiences turns out to be the way to millennials’ hearts it certainly won’t go unnoticed in the igaming community. Zeal’s Lottovate has today launched a lottery that gives players experiences rather than cash prizes. Will it attract the elusive younger generation?

Photo: Carlo Allegri/REUTERS[Episcopal News Service] Episcopal churches on the Gulf Coast, including parts of Florida, Georgia and North and South Carolina, continue to assess Hurricane Michael’s damage, with some in the hardest hit coastal areas still in the rescue phase.“We’re at a time when every tree is down and every roof is compromised,” said Dwight Babcock, diocesan administrator for the Episcopal Church of the Central Gulf Coast, in an Oct. 15 interview with Episcopal News Service. “This [recovery] is a marathon, not a sprint. We just don’t know what we’re looking at.”On Oct. 12, Babcock and Central Gulf Coast Bishop Russell Kendrick traveled east in Florida from Pensacola to Panama City and to other affected areas to visit some of the 11 affected churches. The bishop made a second trip the following day with a small group to distribute generators and other emergency supplies, said Babcock.Ten of the 11 damaged churches held services “in one form or another,” on Oct. 14; some were held inside the church buildings, while some were outdoors in pavilions, he said.On Oct. 10, Hurricane Michael made landfall near Panama City, Florida, as one of the strongest hurricanes ever to hit the mainland United States, killing 19 people. A Category 4 hurricane packing 155 mph winds, Michael wiped out trees and flattened buildings. Five days later thousands of people remained without electricity.“From Highway 79 to the eastern edge of our diocese, the road conditions are still not safe for anyone to travel,” said Kendrick in a video posted on the diocese’s website. “Please be patient. Let’s let the trained responders do their jobs and make the conditions safe so we can get in there and help as necessary.”The Episcopal Church of the Central Gulf Coast has created a Hurricane Relief Hub, listing ways to donate to hurricane relief efforts. The diocese also offers emergency preparedness and response resources. The diocese includes the Florida Panhandle and parts of southern Alabama.Communities inland, in Georgia and further into the Southeast, also were affected by Hurricane Michael; some of those communities continue to recover from Hurricane Florence, which made landfall as a Category 1 storm on Sept. 14 near Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina. The Diocese of East Carolina, which covers North Carolina’s coast, also has issued an appeal for support.The Episcopal Diocese of Georgia reports significant damage in Albany, Bainbridge, Americus and the surrounding counties. Tree damage was significant in Albany, affecting the infrastructure and leaving many without power or potable water. In Bainbridge and in Decatur County, roofs were blown off and trees took out power lines, blocked streets, and crashed into houses, according to Episcopal Relief & Development.“The local dioceses are continuing to assess the damage caused by the storm,” said Katie Mears, senior director of Episcopal Relief & Development’s U.S. Disaster Program, in a statement posted on its website. “Disasters have three phases: rescue, relief and recovery. We are prepared to support them as we move into the next phase of providing relief to affected communities.”– Lynette Wilson is reporter and managing editor for Episcopal News Service.

Broadcast last December, the BBC Africa Eye documentary accused the Burundian security services of operating secret torture and detention sites with the aim of silencing dissent. Four Burundian journalists complete 12 months in arbitrary detention “This completely arbitrary decision by the CNC bears the hallmark of a continuing media clampdown whose sole aim is to silence the few media outlets that still dare to criticize the Burundian regime,” said Arnaud Froger, the head of RSF’s Africa desk.“By penalizing two leading international media outlets whose programmes in Burundi’s national language have many listeners, the regime is also sending a warning to all Burundian journalists – who already have to censor themselves – ahead of next year’s presidential election.” Follow the news on Burundi Reporters Without Borders (RSF) condemns Burundi’s decision to withdraw the BBC’s operating licence and extend Voice of America’s suspension in a continuing media clampdown designed to silence criticism and independent reporting.

Further, the last date for application has been extended till July 10. The decision to this effect was taken by the Executive Committee of the Consortium of National Law Universities in a meeting held yesterday. After reviewing the impact of the lockdowns and other restrictions arising out of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Committee has decided that the examination will be held on the above mentioned date, through a “computer-based, online, centre-based” test. The notification intimating the same states, “an off-line test, as initially contemplated, would require large scale movement of students to limited centres, and significant logistics in the handling of question papers and answer scripts, which is not possible during the prevalent pandemic conditions. Further, an on-line test at home with technological measures cannot ensure transparency, fairness and integrity of a high stakes examination process or maintain equitable access to necessary facilities. Hence, the EC concluded that an on-line test at a large number of centres compliant with physical distancing and public health safety prescriptions is in the best interests of the health and safety of candidates and test administrators.” The full list of examination centres for the CLAT 2020 will be notified to all candidates on July 1, 2020 and the Consortium will issue detailed guidance with respect to the protocols and modalities of the computer-based, online, centre-based mechanism. The exam was originally going to be held on May 10, and was initially postponed to May 24. However, due to the extension of the national lockdown, it was yet again scheduled to be held on June 21. However, in a meeting of the Consortium held last month, it was decided that the exam will be further postponed and a fresh date would be intimated by July 1.Read Notification Here Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Ifanyone should know the right ingredients for an eye-catching CV it ought to bean HR professional – so heaven help you if their yours isn’t top notch. SimonKent offers some tips on making that résumé stand out from the crowd. GivingHR professionals advice on how to create a winning CV calls to mind a phrase todo with encouraging elderly female relatives to do strange things with dairyproduce from chickens. The fact that many HR professionals have seen more CVsthan they have had hot dinners, however, means it is imperative that their ownCVs should be of the highest quality.Theimportant stuffTailoryour CV to each new job: As your career progresses, competition betweencandidates will increase and employers will be on the look-out for candidateswho best fit their organisation and position. Your CV needs to key into theorganisation and the position for which you are applying with greater accuracy.Neverlet your CV go over two pages: According to one source, 60 per cent of thefirst page of a CV registers on a first read and only 40 per cent of the secondpage. Such a diminishing return is bad news, but demonstrates that page threereally will not be worth writing. It is also unlikely that your prospectiveemployer will want to employ someone who cannot be concise.Keepit relevant: The CV is intended to get you to the next stage of application– the interview. It is not intended to give a full picture of yourself as aperson. At this stage the employer wants to identify individuals with theskills and aptitude for the job. Present the picture of a competent andprofessional applicant and don’t go overboard with unnecessary details.Payattention to structure: CVs contain a combination of the followingelements:– Contact details– Employment history– Training and development undertaken– Education and qualifications– Personal details– RefereesInthe vast majority of cases, following this order will enable you to tell a goodstory about yourself through your CV. As your career progresses the emphasisattached to each section will vary. Formal education and qualifications willbecome less important, first jobs will fade into the background rather thanillustrating your key skills. As this process occurs be sure to summarise partsof your CV in order to emphasise your most current and relevant experience.Don’tbury your talent: Make sure your best qualities and achievements are thereon page one, ready to grab attention. Don’t meander through your careerexpecting the reader to wait until the end for a reason to interview you. Letthis dictate the structure of your CV – determining whether your employmenthistory should come before your education and qualifications.Concentrateon your achievements: Focus on projects you initiated and those to whichyou made a significant contribution. Be clear and concise about the outcomes ofyour work. Stating your responsibilities does not show you are a good worker,simply that you had those responsibilities. Where possible, illustrate how yourwork has resulted in achievements beyond identified targets. Show how you havebrought value to the organisation which cannot be described through facts andfigures – ie, increased employee satisfaction, increased team work, decreasinghierarchical structures.Theobvious stuff (and so easy to overlook!)Behonest and factual: Don’t elaborate on your achievements or try to tellyour reader what to think through use of adjectives. Your reader is less likelyto think your record is “impressive” if you say it is.Checkand double check spelling and grammar: Use a dictionary if you have anydoubts. Spell checkers are not foolproof and will change your name if you’renot paying attention. Get your CV read by someone else before you send it off –they don’t need to know anything about the job you’re applying for, justprovide feedback on how you come across.Throughoutyour CV try to avoid the following:–Repeated use of “I” – or any other phrase, particularly whendescribing your achievements.–Jargon – HR jargon may be necessary to show you know your area, but don’toverdo it. For high-level appointments, your CV will be read by companydirectors and executives who may not be familiar with this vocabulary. Explainyour worth in business terms. Do not allow the way you communicate in yourcurrent job to pollute your CV. References to “colleagues” instead of”subordinates” may be inappropriate or confusing for someorganisations.–Humour – a quick gag wastes space and gives the impression you aren’t takingthe application or yourself seriously. Wait until interview to allow yourpersonality to show. It is also far easier to judge another person’s sense ofhumour in a face-to-face situation.–Gaps – while employers may not expect a continuous career progression throughthe HR ranks, they will question time periods which are left unaccounted for.Don’t be afraid to explain career breaks – better to do this than raise yourreader’s suspicions.Toomuch detail – You don’t need to list every single day’s training you havereceived or absolutely everything you did in a certain job. Keep it relevant,keep it focused. Similarly, don’t go overboard with personal interests. Toomuch extra-curricula activities may worry an employer as to how much workyou’re planning to do for them.
