“INTRALOT’s human capital is the most valuable asset of the Company. We are proud of our employees and the culture they have established in our Company. For this reason, the Company’s first priority was the protection of our employees even before the spread of Covid-19 reached the levels of a pandemic. INTRALOT Hackathon competitions were introduced approximately nine years ago, gradually evolving to their present form. These competitions are very important as they aim to increase the levels of innovation in the day-to-day conduct of the employees. I would like to congratulate our HR Department for adopting world-class practices and thank all of our employees for their creativity and commitment to INTRALOT,” said Dr. Chris Dimitriadis, INTRALOT Group CEO.

“The Hackathon initiative created a valuable legacy for our Company, providing us with innovative state-of-the-art technology, while enhancing the team spirit and strengthening the bonds of INTRALOT’s global family. Moreover, towards Covid-19 response actions, our primary goal was to establish a direct and continuous communication with our people by implementing a program focused on online training, connection and communication, and their well-being,” said Mr. Eddy Gerekos, HR Director of the INTRALOT Group.

Royal Dutch Football Association (KNVB) has signed a responsible gaming code of conduct with Nationale Loterij to ensure a fair, transparent and ethical relationship between football and sports betting.

The agreement sets out plans for sustainable cooperation between the organisations, demanding more attention for the integrity and reliability of football and creating a safer environment for sports betting.

“The popularity of football and the growing attention for sports betting are the perfect time to make agreements with each other about those things that keep sports and sports betting fun and thus also how we can protect that together,” Niels Onkenhout, chief executive of Nederlandse Loterij, said.

“Even if the market for online games of chance opens up in the Netherlands and the supply grows, much structural attention will be needed for responsible gaming,” Niels Onkenhout added.

“By signing the code of conduct, we are also taking up our social responsibility on this theme. The opening up of the market for online games of chance offers new opportunities for the football world, but we also have to keep a close eye on the risks,” Jean Paul Decossaux, commercial director of KNVB, said.

“We believe it is important that the integrity of football is not compromised and that the sports experience is enhanced. We are very confident that together in this way we can pay extra attention to the risks, so that football fans can trust what they see on the field and consumers can bet safely,” Jean Paul Decossaux added.
