A typhoon hit the shores of Osaka, an archipelago in Japan where casinos are tipped to be developed following the passage of Integrated Resorts (IR) bill Japan, last week, flooding the international airport at Yumeshima and generally throwing chaos and misery all around. Worse of all, this is the second natural disaster of the year – the first being the earthquake in the island about three months ago.

The spate of natural disasters, among other things, has created some concerns over the feasibility and profitability of running casinos in the archipelago.

The Typhoon’s impact on the area had Japan Communist Party official Masao Nakamura questioning an IR development at Yumeshima: “Why put an expo and a casino at such a place?” he tweeted. However, Governor Matsui quickly replied through the same social media and wrote: “Does the Communist Party want to inflict damage through rumours? There is no problem because the ground level at Yumeshima is higher than it is at Kansai International Airport.”

A large-scale IR is expected to be built in Yumeshima by 2024, in order to host the 2025 World Expo. That’s why construction companies are set to play a major role in the IR development, which is something that has several construction corporations signed on to become “Official Partners,” like Obayashi as well like Shimizu, Taisei, and Takenaka, or other smaller firms, including Asunaro Aoki Construction, Haseko Corporation, Kumagai Gumi, Sumitomo Mitsui Construction, Mori-Gumi, Muramoto Corporation, JDC Corporation, Okumura Corporation, and Takamatsu Corporation.

Indian lottery operator Sugal & Damani Group has entered the UK Gambling Commission’s competition to select an operator for the UK National Lottery.

Sugal & Damani had also participated in the 2007 tender process, where it was declared as a reserved bidder for running the UK lottery, which is the sixth-largest in the world by sales, and is currently operated by Camelot.

“As a leader in operating lotteries across India and other jurisdictions, Sugal & Damani has shown its deep interest to operate the UK National Lottery since 2007 when it participated and also got selected as a reserve bidder by qualifying all Required Standards like propriety, technology, player protection, channel management, financial capability, etc,” Kamlesh Vijay, Group CEO of Sugal & Damani, said.

“We are looking for a fair and open competition that UKGC has initiated, we are very much in the game, we are in the final stages of creating a strong consortium of credible partners, the details of which will be shared in due course,” Vijay continued.

“As far as the UK lottery market is concerned, it is a large one and highly reputed. There are a huge local following and brand reputation for the UK National lottery, but there are challenges in the market too because people are looking for new excitement and there is stiff competition from other gambling products. We believe that people have a soft corner due to the fact that lotteries contribute more towards well defined good causes, so that attitude is a big plus point. However, continued innovation is very much required in a responsible way to consolidate on this soft corner. Being an organization with deep-rooted innovation in every sphere of our activity we are happy to be in the competition,” Vijay concluded.
