Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

The International Association of Gaming Regulators’ (IAGR) much anticipated annual conference, Disrupting the Regulator: Sparking innovation in regulatory practice, was postponed earlier this year, due to the major disruption and associated public health related restrictions arising from the Covid-19 pandemic.

IAGR’s regulatory innovation focused conference has been rescheduled to 12 – 17 September 2021 and will be hosted by the Massachusetts Gaming Commission in Boston.

Reflecting on the his term as IAGR President, Mr Paul Newson, outgoing IAGR President said: ‘We were unable to bring the gambling regulatory community together at the IAGR annual conference, where we had hoped to collectively explore how to build appetite and excite the adoption of regulatory technology. These conversations are vitally important to introduce new capability and ways of working, and I am sure when they are able to occur at the IAGR 2021 conference in Boston they will support efficient and effective gambling regulation globally which underpins sustainable industry.

‘2020 has been punctuated with challenge and uncertainty for everyone. While IAGR’s bold ambition for what could be achieved to advance our strategic direction was dampened, we have continued to build our association’s profile and reach. We have also been exploring potential new strategic initiatives that will advance IAGR’s mission and enhance our contribution to gambling regulation globally.

‘While IAGR’s trustees continue to explore possible avenues, there is rich opportunity for IAGR to take a more active role in regulatory policy and practice advocacy, leveraging partnerships, advocating for greater regulatory harmony and mutual recognition, adopting a leadership role in standards setting and fostering increased international information and intelligence exchange and collaboration.

‘I am grateful for the privilege to have led IAGR for the previous year and I am excited about the enormous potential it has to grow its leadership role and help shape gambling regulatory policy and practice globally. The talented leadership and Board of Trustees are exceptionally well placed to build IAGR’s influence and drive its future success.

While I am transitioning to a new role to lead Senet’s Regulatory Advisory Practice, I look forward to staying connected and contributing to the international regulatory dialogue.

Incoming President, Mabutho Zwane, Chief Executive at the Eastern Cape Gambling and Betting Board, said, ‘I am honoured and excited by the opportunity to assume the role of IAGR president, especially at this particularly important time where there is a significant opportunity to leverage technology to bring global regulators together and to drive regulatory practice.

Paul has provided immeasurable skill and knowledge to his work as IAGR President, setting IAGR on a pathway to become the preeminent voice on gambling regulation internationally.

I am sure the IAGR members and the Board of Trustees will join me in thanking Paul for his leadership through what has been an exceptionally challenging time, and to wish him all the best in his new role at Senet.’

The World Series of Poker Online $5,000 Main Event hosted at GGPoker generates largest prize pool for an online poker tournament

GGPoker announces it has broken the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title for the largest prize pool for an online poker tournament with a $27,559,500 prize pool in World Series of Poker Online Event 77: $5,000 Main Event at GGPoker on September 6, 2020.

Take a look at the moment Michael Empric, Official Adjudicator for Guinness World Records informed GGPoker ambassador Daniel Negreanu that the record was verified and in the books: https://gg.gl/world_record

The $5,000 Main Event was the marquee tournament of the 54-gold bracelet event World Series of Poker (WSOP) Online 2020 Series at GGPoker. Bulgaria’s Stoyan Madanzhiev defeated the 5,802-player field to earn the $3,904,685 top payout and his first World Series of Poker bracelet. Madanzhiev’s prize was the largest individual prize ever awarded in an online poker tournament.

The record $27,559,500 prize pool was shared among the top 728 finishers in the tournament. Each prize winner earned a minimum $11,834 payout.

“This Guinness World Records title was on our radar from the very beginning,” said Steve Preiss, Head of Poker Operations at GGPoker. “Players and fans of poker expect nothing less than record-breaking prizes when it comes to the World Series of Poker, and GGPoker delivered.”

The Main Event lasted 150 hours, 9 minutes and 13 seconds from the start of the first starting flight to the end of the last hand. Surviving players from all Day 1 starting flights combined for Day 2 of the tournament on August 30, during which the field shrunk from 1,171 players to just 38. A week later, the final 38 players battled it out over a long Day 3 until Madanzhiev won the final hand of the tournament and claimed the winner’s share of the record-breaking prize pool.

“Breaking a Guinness World Records title shows what happens when you combine GGPoker’s amazing platform with the World Series of Poker brand,” said Ty Stewart, WSOP Director. “This will be a tough record to beat.”

New GGPoker players are eligible to claim the poker room’s Welcome Bonus, earn even more rewards with the Honeymoon for Newcomers promotion and automatically join GGPoker’s Fish Buffet loyalty program, with regular cash prizes on offer.
