LONDON (July 13, 2018)

Bacta has outlined a programme of lobbying activities during ‘Party Conference Season’ during which the Association will be taking its arguments on behalf of the industry to all three major political parties. The lobbying programme starts in Brighton on September 17th when the south coast resort will host the Liberal Democrats. One week later and Bacta will be in Liverpool attending the Labour Party Conference (24th and 25th September), followed on the 1st and 2nd October when the Conservative party assembles in Birmingham.

Bacta Chief Executive John White believes attendance at the party conferences is central to the association’s ongoing political lobbying. He said: “We’ve just fought a major campaign on B2 stakes and it’s clear that particular battle is far from over. There’s a lot that we still have to do in order to bring forward the implementation date for the £2 FOBT stake. We also have a range of other issues on the industry shopping list not least the implications of Brexit for both manufacturers and destination venues and the importance of infrastructure investment in coastal resorts. The Party Conferences provide us with an opportunity to engage with both politicians and advisers in order to help influence policy and present a fair and accurate representation of the industry.”

The Brighton Palace Pier will be the venue when Bacta host Liberal Democrat Councillors and Christine Jardine MP the Liberal Democrats spokesperson on Digital, Culture, Media and Sport in the House of Commons. In Liverpool Bacta will be attending a range of Labour Fringe Events, followed by a reception in Birmingham when the association will be bringing a touch of seaside themed fun to the Conservative party.

John White concluded: “Having a successful, campaigning trade association that can deliver politically is a really important reason for joining Bacta. I believe Bacta, with the help of the membership has shown itself to be an effective force and the party conferences provide us with another opportunity to progress the issues that are important to our members.”

PALMERBET LAUNCH UNIQUE NEW BOOKIE BAG PRODUCT
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

It has been a time of unprecedented challenges for sporting and racing organisations, as well as bookies and punters – but the sports, racing and betting fraternity are moving tentatively out the other side as the COVID-19 crisis improves. Palmerbet is helping its customers make the most of the return to the status quo – and adding to its impressive suite of betting products – with the launch of the new Bookie Bag*.

The Bookie Bag is made up of three betting features designed to increase value and the betting experience for customers: Price Push, Race Rescue and Game Saver.

Price Push and Race Rescue are both available on all thoroughbred, greyhound and harness racing fixed odds events. Game Saver can be used on head-to-head bets in all NRL, AFL, NBA and NFL matches. The three Bookie Bag features are easy to use and will show on a Palmerbet customer’s betting slip for a valid race or match when they have a Price Push, Race Rescue or Game Saver available.

After choosing a runner in a fixed odds thoroughbred, greyhound or harness race and entering a stake, a customer can select the Price Push option to increase their odds.

When the Race Rescue feature is selected on a thoroughbred, greyhound or harness racing fixed odds bet, the customer’s stake is returned as a bet to use on another event if their runner places second or third.

Similarly, the Game Saver feature provides Palmerbet customers with a second chance when the NRL, AFL, NBA or NFL team they place a Match Result bet on gives up a late lead. If a customer’s chosen NRL team leads at the 60-minute mark but goes on to lose, or the AFL, NBA or NFL team they bet on is in front at three-quarter time but loses, their stake is returned as a bet to use on another event.

Palmerbet customers’ daily available Bookie Bag bets are displayed in their account notifications.
The Bookie Bag features – Price Push, Race Rescue and Game Saver – are set to prove a popular addition to Palmerbet’s range of products, rewarding customers with more bang for their bet and a characteristically user-friendly experience.

With the lift of travel restrictions, the 3rd edition of MARE BALTICUM Gaming Summit might become the first live conference in the industry after lockdown relaxing.

We are excited to announce that the live edition of MARE BALTICUM Gaming Summit is going ahead as planned and will be held on the 6th of August in Tallinn at Radisson Blu Hotel Olümpia Tallinn.

Based on official sources, Estonia has allowed from June 1 for people from EU and EEA countries with a slow current spread of COVID-19 to enter the country without the requirement of a 14-day self-isolation period.

As rates of infection change, countries with no quarantine requirement can be added/removed from the list, but at the time of writing, visitors from the following countries can freely enter Estonia without a quarantine requirement: Austria, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Croatia, Cyprus, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Switzerland.

“While most of the audience at the MARE BALTICUM series is from the Baltic and Scandinavian region, we are happy to announce that the live conference will be possible to attend in person by those interested to some safe networking and learning possibilities. We have had talks with the Health Ministry in Estonia and also with the team at Radisson Blu and we ensure everyone that are as safe as possible to attend the conference and we look forward to welcoming all participants in August. You might also want to plan a short summer break in Tallinn as the beach is really nice and even in tourist seasons it does not get crowded” stated Zoltán Tűndik, Co-Founder and Head of Business at Hipther Agency.

From July 1st, indoor events of up to 500 participants will be allowed as long as the rooms are used at only 50% of their standard capacity, nevertheless, our team is limiting the conference to 80 delegates to make it comfortable for participants.

So, in order to secure your seat, make sure to book in advance and choose one of the packages which include either delegate pass or delegate pass and accommodation combo.
