Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

BETDAQ, the global betting exchange, has introduced 0% commission on the majority of sports on its platform.

All current and future customers will see the benefit of the change which sees all sports adopt the new commission structure, with football, horse racing, greyhound racing and cricket the only ones not included.

A number of hugely successful trial periods, including offering 0% commission on the final three tennis Grand Slams of the year, have seen the operator adopt the approach on a full-time basis as they continue to offer an enhanced service that offers increased liquidity as well as a reduced commission rate.

BETDAQ managing director Shane McLaughlin said: “Having trialled a 0% commission structure on several occasions earlier this year and seeing how successful it was in terms of liquidity generation and customer retention, we’ve decided to roll it out permanently on the majority of sports.

“We have seen really impressive growth in tennis markets over the past 12 months and by introducing this new commission structure we continue to reward customers with a fantastic betting experience whilst our new commission-free initiative means they will increase liquidity and have access to the best price on tennis in the industry.”

Selecting esports titles to be played in MSSA Provincial and National Championships

Published

Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Selecting esports titles is always an emotive issue.

All esports athletes have strong likes and dislikes, gamers always want their favourite esports titles to be given preferential treatment.

In order to make the process more objective and reduce the influence of any one member club and/or individual, Mind Sports South Africa (MSSA) has a policy in place in order to ensure that there is a due process as well as a fair system in place in order to ensure that the correct titles are selected.

However, it should be noted that MSSA currently only selects 10 titles to be played at Provincial and National Championships.

Priority is given to the esports titles that are played at IESF’s World Championships and Global Esports Federation’s Global Esports Games (GEG) in order to assist MSSA deliver a national team.

Even though only 10 titles are so selected, that does not mean that the other titles cannot be held at MSSA events.

However, it should be noted that any approved title may be played at an official MSSA Regional Championships. In fact, it is at such Regional Championships that the popularity of various esports titles is tested in order to evaluate whether such titles should, in future, be included in MSSA’s Provincial and National Championships.

The full rules on how titles are selected are as follows:

Schedule 3: SELECTION OF TITLES FOR PROVINCIAL AND NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS
  1. The periods (titles) selected shall be decided upon by the Annual General Meeting.
  2. Not more than ten (10) titles shall be selected every year from nominations received.
  3. The titles played at the most recent IESF World Championships shall automatically be selected.
  4. The remaining titles may then be selected.
  5. Should IESF introduce new titles into its World Championships which have not been selected by MSSA, then the least popular game in its genre (excluding titles that are being played at IESF’s World Championships) shall immediately fall away in favour of the new title.
  6. The popularity of a period (title) shall be based on attendance at MSSA events.
  7. Should IESF introduce new titles into its World Championships which have not been selected by MSSA, and no MSSA event have been held in such period (title) then the Board of Control shall decide which period (title) falls away in such genre (excluding titles that are being played at IESF’s World Championships).
  8. Should IESF introduce new titles into its World Championships which have not been selected by MSSA, and there are no other periods (titles) within its genre, then the least popular game (excluding titles that are being played at IESF’s World Championships) shall immediately fall away in favour of the new title.
  9. For any period to be nominated, such period (title) shall have been played at any two Regional Events at which there were at least three teams per event.

All proposals for titles must be submitted to MSSA by 1 November 2022 for inclusion in the Agenda for the 2022 Annual General Meeting (AGM).

THE Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR) on September 30, 2022 extended financial assistance worth P100,000 to each of the families of the five rescue workers in Malolos, Bulacan who perished recently in the line of duty at the height of Super Typhoon Karding.

PAGCOR provided the cash aid in recognition of the heroism of Narciso Calayag, Jr., Jerson Resurreccion, Marby Bartolome, George Agustin and Troy Justin Agustin. The victims drowned in floodwater when a wall collapsed on them while performing rescue duties last September 25, 2022.

Apart from providing financial assistance to the families of the five fallen rescue workers, the state-run gaming firm joined hands with the Bridges of Benevolent Initiative Foundation, Inc. (BBFI), the charitable arm of The Midori Clark Casino operated by BB International Leisure and Resort Development Corp. (BBI), in conducting relief operations for the typhoon victims in the provinces of Bulacan and Pampanga.

The recipients in the towns of San Miguel and Sto. Nino, Pampanga received 400 and 150 food relief packs, respectively, while a total of 300 families in Hagonoy, Bulacan, were also provided relief items. Each relief pack contained rice, instant noodles, coffee, and canned goods.

As of September 30, 2022, PAGCOR and its licensees have distributed 4,700 relief packs in different areas in Luzon affected by the recent typhoon and are set to conduct more distributions in the upcoming days.
