Former Sky Sports presenter Kirsty Gallacher and three-time UEFA Goalkeeper of the Year Peter Schmeichel have been confirmed as hosts for this year’s SBC Awards, held Tuesday 4 December at the stunning HAC Artillery Garden.

Having made her television debut in 1998, Gallacher has gone onto become one of the most recognisable faces in sports broadcasting, enjoying an illustrious 20 year career on Sky Sports. She was recently confirmed as Brand Ambassador of William Hill.

Gallacher will be joined on stage by Schmeichel, the legendary goalkeeper who enjoyed a trophy-laden eight year spell at Old Trafford, and helped his native Denmark to unexpected success at the 1992 European Championships in Sweden.

The ‘Great Dane’ lifted the Premier League in five of his eight seasons with Manchester United, as well as three FA Cup’s and a League Cup, before captaining the side to Champions League glory as the final part of the club’s infamous 1999 treble winning season.

Schmeichel will be available for meet and greets throughout the evening, while there will be a Q&A on stage before the start of the awards, in which Gallacher will be asking the questions for Schmeichel to answer about his career.

Schmeichel said: “It is a pleasure to be associated with the SBC Awards, an increasingly important indicator of the highest performing companies in sports betting – a sector that continues to play a significant role in the world of sports, and particularly football.”

Gallacher added: “Having witnessed first-hand the excitement around SBC organised events, I can’t wait for the SBC Awards 2018. Given my long association with football, it is particularly exciting for me to share the stage with a true footballing legend.”

This year’s Christmas-themed ceremony has been expanded to recognise excellence across 38 categories, which includes 12 Operator/Affiliate awards and 20 Supplier Awards, alongside five new Casino Beats Awards and the inaugural Leader of the Year Award.

Rasmus Sojmark, CEO & Founder of SBC commented: “We are very proud to have two such outstanding sports personalities hosting this year’s SBC Awards. Peter Schmeichel and Kirsty Gallacher will play a big part in delivering an unforgettable awards evening to close off a successful year in style.”

All attendees will also be treated to a champagne and cocktail reception, an exclusive three-course seated dinner and unlimited wine, beer, spirits and mixers on the table, and evening entertainment, including one of London’s top DJs.

UK Gambling Commission mulls banning credit card for gambling transactions

The UK Gambling Commission is considering a ban on credit cards for gambling-related transactions. The commission has invited recommendations and suggestions from the members of the public, gambling businesses and other stakeholders.

Paul Hope, an executive director at the Gambling Commission, said: “We are exploring measures that could help reduce the risk of harm to consumers who use their credit cards to gamble online, and to those who play on all Category B machines. We want consumers, gambling firms and other interested parties to have their say and provide evidence that will help us make gambling safer.”

UKGC has already agreed in principle that consumers should not gamble with money they do not have. Gambling with borrowed money is already well-established as a risk factor for harmful gambling.

Now it is seeking meaningful input to help determine if restrictions—potentially including an outright ban—are necessary to limit risks to consumers.

The other call for evidence gives an opportunity for gambling businesses to outline how they will meet the challenges set out in the UK Government’s Review of Gaming Machines and Social Responsibility Measures over the protections for players using FOBTs.

North Dakota’s House of Representatives have passed the sports betting bill. This will move the state closer to legalising sports betting. The legislation approves betting on both collegiate and professional sports. The bill has been now sent to the Senate.

The state has changed its long-held stance against sports betting with this vote.

The bill will now be heading to the Senate, where it may finally be approved and sent to the Governor’s desk to be signed into Law. It is expected that it will, as both chambers have a Republican majority and the Lower one has already supported its approval.

Rep. Michael Howe emphasised on the fact that unregulated sports betting already takes place in the state. “It’s already occurring in North Dakota,” Howe said. “Let’s keep that money in North Dakota for charities, addiction services and tax revenue.”
