Nikol Pashinyan, the acting prime minister of Armenia, has firmly stated that betting companies in the country will have to close down gradually. Pashinyan said in the parliament that the existing economic structure of Armenia is based on three industries: gambling, mining and agriculture. However, according to him, this structure must be transformed.

He categorically stated that the bookmaker offices in Armenia will be closed, but only gradually. First, activity of bookmakers will be limited, slowly leading to closure.

The reason for this decision was the appeal of residents of Kapan town, who complained that local men spend a lot of time in betting shops, leaving large sums of money there. Pashinyan said that the authorities should show the citizens of the country that money can be earned by their work, and not only by bets.

At the present moment there are about 300 offline betting shops operate in Armenia in addition to online betting providers.

The “Power Has No Gender” awards ceremony held by TotoGaming has reached a new level

The "Power Has No Gender" awards ceremony held by TotoGaming has reached a new level
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

For the third consecutive year, TotoGaming hosted the “Power Has No Gender” awards ceremony, once again bringing together successful and accomplished women in their field. Through this initiative, the brand aims to emphasize the power of women, challenging entrenched stereotypes in society. And it refers not only to physical strength but also to inner strength. The award ceremony was held in Yerevan, Armenia, on April 6th.

The “Power Has No Gender” movement was born in 2022. The nominees of the first awards ceremony were female athletes who had achieved significant success in sports during that year. With this project, TotoGaming’s initiative team decided to break the existing stereotypes that sport is mostly for men, and that only they can achieve real success in sports.

In the following years, the scale of the “Power Has No Gender” movement grew, and the circle of award winners expanded. Now, the recipients of the “Power Has No Gender” award include not only athletes but also women working in various fields, demonstrating that it is possible to break down societal barriers. The 10 prizewinners receive not only symbolic statuettes but also monetary rewards to further support their endeavors.

In 2024, TotoGaming brought together winners of the “Power Has No Gender” award and guests around one idea: everyone is free to be who they want to be — strong, weak, fallible, or infallible — but always striving to be the best version of themselves. And to achieve this, you only need yourself.

This thought was running through the entire event, symbolized by the mirror, as it reflects a person’s individual self. Mirrors were part of the prize statuettes; gift-mirrors with motivational quotes were also distributed to the guests, once again inspiring the participants to be the best manifestation of their unique selves.

During the “Power Has No Gender” event, the brand organized a panel discussion highlighting the stereotypes about strong women still existing in our society and their underlying reasons.
Suggestions and potential solutions were put forward to integrate the reality of strength so that their realm becomes the norm for the majority.
