Young People’s Gambling Harm Prevention Programme Exceeds First-year Targets
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

YGAM and GamCare have surpassed the first-year targets for their joint Young People’s Gambling Harm Prevention Programme, despite significant challenges imposed by the continuing COVID-19 pandemic.

Figures released by YGAM show that the education charity trained 2906 practitioners in 2020 (up from its original target of 2592). With this training, those practitioners have reached an impressive 184,700 young people to provide vital educational sessions on the harms associated with gambling and gaming (up from a target of 170,300).

In addition, GamCare has trained 4185 professionals who work with young people and delivered educational workshops directly to 3947 young people. With just over two months left of their first year of delivery, GamCare has already exceeded training targets by almost 3000 people to date.

YGAM and GamCare accelerated the digital transformation of their resources to enable them to deliver their workshops online throughout successive lockdowns. These resources continue to be available to anyone that works with young people, including teachers and youth workers.

“I am extremely proud of the enormous success we have already seen from the programme. As 2020 unfolded, we saw the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic as an invitation to develop YGAM’s digital capacity in all areas of our work. Although this was done as a response to the crisis, the effect has been significantly advantageous for our education programme,” Lee Willows, Founder and Chief Executive of YGAM, said.

Gambling Venues in Denmark to Remain Closed Until April 5
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

The Danish Government has announced that casinos and gaming halls across the country will remain closed until April 5 at the earliest, in line with extended novel coronavirus (Covid-19) restrictions.

Venues temporarily shut in December last year after the government extended national Covid-19 measures until February 28, with the aim of opening early in 2021.

However, as Covid-19 case rates remained higher, venues have been kept closed in an effort to prevent further spread while Denmark commenced its vaccination programme.

In its latest update, the Danish Health and Medicines Authority announced that despite some relaxation of measures, casinos, gaming halls and restaurants will remain shut until at least 5 April.

A selection of other venues such as some non-essential shops and outdoor visitor attractions will be able to reopen in some regions, while certain year groups will also be allowed back into schools in select areas. All other measures, including travel restrictions, will remain in place until early April.

All the five groups that entered Nagasaki prefecture’s request-for-proposal (RFP) process with the aim of participating in its bid for an integrated resort (IR) licence have qualified for the next phase of the process.

The five groups are: a consortium led by Oshidori International Holdings Ltd; Casinos Austria International Japan; Current Group; the Niki Chau Fwu (Parkview) Group; and One Kyushu, a consortium between Tokyo-listed Pixel Companyz Inc and French gaming operator Groupe Partouche SA.

The prefecture will complete a “first round” of evaluation of would-be partners this month to reduce the list of bidders to three. After that, a second round will include a “competitive dialogue” with would-be partners. The groups will then have to present their projects in August for the prefecture to make a final decision.

Japan plans to initially approve three integrated resorts in the country. Proposals must include a casino, tourism attractions, hotels and meeting spaces.
