New Illinois Governor eyes legal sports betting

first_img Incoming Illinois Governor J.B Pritzker has raised hopes of legal sports betting in the state after including $200m in future tax revenue from wagering activities in his 2020 budget proposal. Tags: Online Gambling AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter 21st February 2019 | By contenteditor Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Topics: Finance Legal & compliance Sports betting Incoming Illinois Governor J.B Pritzker has raised hopes of legal sports betting in the state after including $200m (£153.0m/€176.1m) in future tax revenue from wagering activities in his 2020 budget proposal. Pritzker is proposing to legalise sports betting at facilities across the state, with consumers able to place bets in-person or online. Those betting via the internet would be able to do so from inside Illinois or in a jurisdiction that has entered into a reciprocal agreement with the state. Under Pritzker’s plans, a total of 20 sports wagering licences would be available in Illinois at a cost of $10m each, plus an annual renewal fee of $5,000. Licence-holders would pay tax at a rate of 20% on sports betting revenue. Citing estimates from Oxford Economics, Pritzker has said Illinois could generate between $384m and $680m in gross sports betting revenue per year under full implementation. Based on the proposed 20% tax rate, this would generate tax revenue of between $77m and $136m each year. Such is Pritzker’s confidence that legislation will pass, he has included around $17m of tax revenue in the budget forecast for fiscal year 2020, with $12m of this to be transferred into the general funds after estimated potential expenses to administer sports wagering were deducted. The proposal states that for the first five years of operation, operators would be able to deduct up to 90% of one-fifth of the initial licence fee each year from the sports wagering tax. Pritzker said that the licence fee and this tax credit proposal would allow the state to generate an estimated $200m in revenue for fiscal year 2020. The budget must be passed by the Illinois House and Senate before it can be implemented. Illinois lawmakers are currently considering a bill that would legalise sports betting in the state, but at slightly different terms as to those proposed by Pritzker. Sponsored by Napoleon Harris III, a former NFL American football player who is now serving on the Illinois Senate, SB0176 would allow for in-person and online wagering in the state. However, the bill sets out a proposed tax rate of 12.5% on gross sports wagering revenue, as opposed to the 10% rate cited by Pritzker. Illinois has been discussing sports betting regulation for some time now, with state Representatives having met at a dedicated hearing last October to talk over the specifics of proposed law. At the time, a spokesperson for Representative Bob Rita, who organised the hearing, told iGamingBusiness.com that “a lot of unanswered questions” remained and there was a lot more work to do on the issue.Pritzker, who took office as Governor last month, is also seeking to legalise recreational cannabis in Illinois under his budget proposal.Image: Petr Kratochvil New Illinois Governor eyes legal sports betting Regions: US Illinois Email Address Financelast_img read more

Singapore prepares overhaul of gambling regulations

first_img Singapore’s Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has announced plans to overhaul the country’s gambling regulations, that will see a new regulatory authority established by 2021.Currently, gambling in Singapore is regulated by multiple bodies, with the Casino Regulatory Authority regulating casino gambling, the Gambling Regulatory Unit of the MHA regulating remote gambling and fruit machines and the the Singapore Totalisator Board governing retail pools betting. In addition to these bodies, the Singapore Police Force is responsible for enforcement of laws against illegal gambling and the Ministry of Social and Family Development is responsible for creating safeguards against gambling-related harm. The MHA said that although these bodies have had success thus far in regulating gambling, the modern gambling landscape necessitates a single regulatory body. This will lead to the establishment of the Gambling Regulatory Authority (GRA).“[The consolidation of regulatory powers] will allow the GRA to stay even more effectively abreast of technological and global trends, respond faster to emerging products in particular those that cut across different domains, and take a more holistic approach to gambling policies and issues,” the MHA explained.In addition, the Ministry said it was reviewing Singapore’s gambling regulations, with the intent to update the law by 2021 “to ensure that regulatory mechanisms can effectively address evolving gambling products and business models”.One area the MHA said it would look into was the regulation of loot boxes in video games. In addition, it said it would look into the penalties for regulatory breaches to ensure these were consistent across gambling verticals.“Even as we update our laws, the MHA will retain a generally prohibitive stance towards gambling, and continue to maintain a risk-based regulatory approach towards existing gambling operators,” the MHA said.In 2015, the MHA announced that authorities in the country are to begin clamping down on illegal online gambling operations by blocking unlicensed websites, after the Remote Gambling Act came into effect in 2014.However in 2016, state-owned lottery company Singapore Pools became the first operator to launch a legal online betting service in the country.

GAN sees revenue and profit decline in first quarter

first_img GAN has reported a year-on-year drop in revenue and profit for the first quarter, primarily due to the impact of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic on the gambling software business. Finance GAN has reported a year-on-year drop in revenue and profit for the first quarter, primarily due to the impact of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic on the gambling software business.Revenue for the three months to 31 March totalled $7.7m (£6.1m/€6.8m), down 19.8% from €9.6m in the corresponding period last year.GAN noted that the previous year’s figure included $4.9m in other revenue as a result of both hardware sales and the licensing of GAN’s strategic US patent. It said these exceptional items in Q1 2019 contributed to the year-over-year decline.Excluding these exceptional items, GAN said that revenue for the first quarter grew by 64.0%, driven by a 108.8% hike in real money internet gaming software as a service (SaaS) revenue and a 63.0% jump in real money internet gaming service revenue.GAN also reported an increase in its US customer base, which in turn grew its business in the country, with the provider benefiting from more states passing laws to permit online real money gaming and sports betting.Read the full story on iGB North America.

A dirt-cheap growth stock I WON’T be buying for my Stocks and Shares ISA

first_img “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Enter Your Email Address Image source: Getty Images. These are tempting times for dip buyers. The heavy share market sell-off of recent weeks leaves plenty of quality shares looking massively overvalued. For ISA investors, too, there is the upcoming deadline to max out the annual allowance, which has raised the sense of urgency.Don’t be hasty, though. There are plenty of top-tier shares going for next to nothing at current prices. But in the rush to grab a bargain there’s plenty of investors piling in and picking up some proper duds. Many have bought shares that could leave a huge financial hole in their investment portfolios.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…One such share I’m not tempted to buy today is ASOS (LSE: ASC). You may think that online-only clothes retailers like this might thrive at the expense of their bricks and mortar rivals. The lockdown on all non-essential shopping by government should lead to an explosion of e-commerce, right?Conditions toughenWell, not quite. Consumers are understandably tightening the pursestrings on all discretionary items. There are widespread fears over Covid-19’s impact on the broader economy and more specifically, falling wages and mass job losses. As a result, internet sales of discretionary items like those offered by ASOS aren’t benefitting from plummeting footfall on high streets and in shopping malls.It’s a phenomenon that research house GlobalData predicted. It says that clothing and footwear sales will topple 20.6% year on year in 2020. That’s a vast departure from the 0.6% rise it had previously estimated.To put this into context, the predicted £11.1bn hit that GlobalData expects for the fashion retail sector “is equivalent to the combined clothing sales of the three market leaders Primark, Marks & Spencer, and Next.”ASOS also has little to hang their hopes on, with social interactions falling and quarantine measures being stepped up. It comments that “although the online channel will remain accessible to shoppers, we still expect to see a sharp decline in sales here as no amount of spare time at home to browse online will compensate for the lack of events to wear new clothes for.”Supply strainsFalling demand isn’t the only thing that ASOS needs to worry about, either. The accelerating infection rate across many parts of Europe and here in the UK threatens to smack its supply chain and hamper its ability to meet orders as well.It’s a potential hazard that has already tripped up its mid-tier rival Next. On Thursday, the FTSE 100 heavyweight said that after listening to staff concerns, it would shutter its online, warehousing, and distribution operations. As a consequence, it has put a halt to all new orders. It’s quite likely that other retailers will also be forced into such measures.There’s a huge danger, then, that City forecasts suggesting ASOS’s earnings will leap 62% in fiscal 2020 will fall flat. I don’t care about the forward price-to-earnings growth ratio of 0.4 times. This is a share whose rising risk profile more that outweighs its relative cheapness. I, for one, plan to keep avoiding it.

I think the Asos share price could crush the FTSE 100 this year See all posts by Rupert Hargreaves I think the Asos (LSE: ASC) share price is set to smash the FTSE 100 in 2021. It’s already off to a fantastic start. Even though the year is less than three weeks old, the stock has already nearly doubled the UK’s leading blue-chip index’s performance. And over the past 12 months, the stock has outperformed the index by 77% excluding dividends. I think it might be too much to ask to see a similar performance in 2021. Nevertheless, I reckon it’s more likely than not the Asos share price will beat the FTSE 100 over the next 12 months. 5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Asos share price growth The coronavirus pandemic has drastically changed the way consumers shop and interact with brands. The closure of all non-essential shops has forced consumers to shop online, effectively transferring all non-essential sales to the web.I don’t think this will continue forever. When the pandemic ends, customers will still want to visit shops. Although I genuinely believe there will be a lower number of customers visiting bricks-and-mortar stores regularly from now on. This is one of the key reasons why I’m so optimistic about the outlook for the Asos share price. It’s not just consumer habits that have changed. It’s businesses as well. Before the pandemic, the infrastructure required to process the millions of online orders placed every day just wasn’t up to scratch. However, over the past 12 months, businesses have been forced to adapt.Delivery firms have hired tens of thousands of new staff to cope with demand, and Royal Mail has launched its first parcel-focused delivery and pick-up service. These actions have made it easier and more straightforward for customers to shop online, and I believe that’s excellent news for the Asos share price in the long run.  The company was one of the first to develop online fast fashion. It effectively pioneered the model so many other businesses use today. Unfortunately, the group has been beset by several headwinds over the past few years.But these now look to be behind the business. As we advance, I think the combination of more shoppers placing orders online and better delivery infrastructure will help turbocharge the group’s growth. I believe these tailwinds will allow the business to live up to its full potential. That’s why I’m incredibly optimistic about the outlook for the share price in the new year.The new normal Unlike many other FTSE 100 companies, the enterprise is exceptionally well-positioned for the new normal. Asos’s business model has been built around the internet. It does not have to spend millions of pounds adapting to the new environment, because it’s already there. This advantage should allow the business to continue to take market share from struggling competitors.What’s more, I think these advantages could lead a competitor to make an offer for Asos. It’s easier to buy technology than to build it, and some old-fashioned firms may decide to take this route as it would also give them access to the company’s global customer base. For those reasons, my money’s on the share in 2021. last_img read more
