SG’s OpenMarket allows a range of suppliers to offer their products to its operator partners across the globe.SportCaller allows its partners to launch a range of F2P prediction, jackpot and other hyper-casual game formats across several sports, languages and territories via web, Apple’s iOS, Google’s Play Store, Facebook Instant Games and Twitch extensions.“Despite some sustained success and consistent growth, you should never rest on your laurels in this industry,” SportCaller managing director Cillian Barry said. “That is why this third-party collaboration with a sportsbook provider as esteemed as Scientific Games made such strategic sense“Sportsbooks worldwide can now effortlessly expand their portfolio through OpenMarket, with this sports betting content aggregation platform affording easy access to the best products on the market, featuring FTP and other core igaming verticals,” he explained. “Scientific Games remains one of the world’s leading names in digital gaming.“So, we look forward to growing our global influence and seeing how our localised games perform in diverse territories which, in some cases, break new ground for us.”Keith O’Loughlin, senior vice president of sportsbook for SG Digital, added that SportCaller was the market leader in the F2P vertical, making it a “logical choice” for OpenMarket.“They deliver a myriad of free-to-play games for assorted operators, from traditional jackpot and attainable-prize games for retention and responsible play, right through to light-touch quizzes and casual games,” he explained.“OpenMarket has assembled a plethora of innovative key assets for sportsbook – from data to streaming, scoreboards, CRM and, of course, the free-to-play games led by SportCaller. These assets are already revenue-generating for our operators, so we’re thrilled with the early international reception from our growing global association of betting partners.”The deal will extend SportCaller’s reach further, following a year of expansion through direct deals with major operators globally.In February 2019, it announced a deal to support daily fantasy operator FanDuel through the creation of F2P games designed to increase fan engagement around sporting events such as the National Collegiate Athletic Association’s March Madness basketball event, though that was cancelled as a result of novel coronavirus (Covid-19). In November last year it then announced a deal with Tote to revamp its Ten to Follow game, one of Tote’s key drivers of fan engagement, by offering free entry into racing-based jackpot games.This year, it launched a F2P game in partnership with Gamesys’ Virgin Bet, offering customers the opportunity to win a £100,000 jackpot each week. The supplier has more recently continued its expansion in the US, through deals with BetMGM, and, in July, it announced its launch into the Colorado igaming market through a deal with Betfred US.

It doesn’t have to be £200, or even £100. Using a Stocks and Shares ISA, you can save as little as £25 into a low-cost FTSE 100 tracker fund.The power of compounding means that the sooner you start, the bigger your eventual returns will be.Here’s a quick table showing how much you could expect to save over different time periods. £459,745 Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Amount needed to match State Pension Roland Head has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Roland Head | Saturday, 11th January, 2020 £588,512 “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” I’ve based my sums on an 8% annual return, which is typical of the long-term performance of the UK stock market. I’ve also estimated the minimum fund size I think you’d need to match the State Pension, after inflation, based on a 4% annual withdrawal rate.You’ll notice that unless you’re starting in your late 20s, £200 per month probably won’t be enough to match the State Pension when you retire. That doesn’t mean saving isn’t worthwhile – any extra income when you retire is always going to be a bonus.However, what if your goal is to double the State Pension? What are your options?Be like BuffettIf you want to save £200 for 20 years and be able to match the State Pension, my sums suggest you’ll need to achieve an average annual return of about 16%. To be honest, I think that’s a pretty tough challenge.Warren Buffett has achieved an average annual return of about 20% over many decades. But he’s one of the greatest investors the world has ever seen. Most of us aren’t Buffett and won’t perform this well over such long periods.Of course, if you’re able to save more each month then you’ll be able to match the State Pension more easily. My sums suggest that saving about £600 per month for 20 years should be enough.Please don’t do thisThere are only two things I wouldn’t do. The first is to invest all my cash into one or two high-risk shares in the hope of making huge gains quickly. More often than not, these speculative trades end up delivering big losses.The second thing I’d avoid is selling shares during a market crash. If the whole market crashes, then there’s probably nothing much wrong with your shares. It’s just the market cycle.My advice would be to keep paying in each month. While prices are down, you’ll get more shares for your cash. And when the market recovers – which it normally does – the value of your investments will rise more quickly.Remember the old saying – it’s time in the market that counts, not timing the market. 20 £359,152 Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

Image source: Getty Images Why has the IWG share price crashed this week? Enter Your Email Address There’s a ‘double agent’ hiding in the FTSE… we recommend you buy it! Alan Oscroft | Tuesday, 8th June, 2021 | More on: IWG Don’t miss our special stock presentation.It contains details of a UK-listed company our Motley Fool UK analysts are extremely enthusiastic about.They think it’s offering an incredible opportunity to grow your wealth over the long term – at its current price – regardless of what happens in the wider market.That’s why they’re referring to it as the FTSE’s ‘double agent’.Because they believe it’s working both with the market… And against it.To find out why we think you should add it to your portfolio today… Shares in IWG (LSE: IWG), previously known as Regus, started the week with a slump. The office space provider ended Monday 10% down at 330p. At one point, the IWG share price had fallen almost 18%.It’s all down to the day’s trading update, which addressed “the prolonged impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in some of the Group’s markets.”5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…In markets where pandemic restrictions are being eased, occupancy is improving. And there’s “an increasing pipeline of corporate customers on network-wide deals.” But continued lockdown in some markets, coupled with the emergence of new virus strains, looks like hurting the bottom line in 2021. And that’s what led to the sell off and the IWG share price slide.Bad news for 2021 resultsOverall occupancy recovery has been lower than IWG had expected. The company said: “Accordingly, this will delay the anticipated recovery in our business and, given the operational gearing of the Group, is expected to have a significant impact on the Group’s results for 2021, with underlying Group EBITDA for 2021 now expected to be well below the level in 2020.”Considering the restrained speak that companies tend to use in announcements like this, I wonder just how bad “well below” might turn out to be. There’s another thing that concerns me about this latest update too, and which I suspect must have made the IWG share price reaction even worse. It’s the change in sentiment from IWG’s previous trading update.As recently as 27 April, IWG said: “Q1 2021 provides a clear inflection point, with occupancy stabilising in February and improving in March. We expect this momentum to continue throughout Q2.” Still, the past couple of months could have gone either way. And I can easily forgive a bit too much optimism at Q1 time. But with hindsight, it seems a little more caution was warranted.IWG share price valuationIs the IWG share price low enough to make me want to buy? It’s difficult to value the shares right now. IWG reported a statutory pre-tax loss of £620m in 2020, following a profit of £55m in 2019. Against that, the company claimed a positive adjusted EBITDA figure of £134m. That’s pre-IFRS 16, which is complicated by lease liabilities — and those can look misleading for a company in the office leasing business.But it means I can’t make much sense of where 2021 might go. I just know it should come in well below 2020.In situations like this, I turn to the balance sheet. And that looks mixed. Reported net debt (excluding those lease liabilities) stood at £351m. To put that into perspective, IWG put its year-end net debt to EBITDA multiple at 2.7 times. And that’s a good bit higher than the 1.5 to 2 times levels I’m more comfortable with. On the upside, that’s based on a bad year for earnings. But on the downside, we’re in for an even worse one this year.Sufficient liquidity?IWG reported liquidity headroom of £802m at 31 December 2020. But that has to last not just this year, but presumably until we see a return to actual (rather than adjusted) cash profits coming in again. That uncertainty is too much for me and I’ll wait at least until first-half results in August. Until then, I expect some IWG share price volatility.

Information Commissioner’s blog series aims to ‘debunk myths’ on GDPR AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis10 Tagged with: GDPR Information Commissioner 266 total views, 1 views today Melanie May | 1 September 2017 | News The Information Commissioner’s Office is running a series of blogs to ‘bust some of the myths’ around the incoming GDPR.The third in the series was published at the end of August and tackled the ‘myth’ that GDPR is an unnecessary burden on organisations. Written by Steve Wood, the ICO’s Deputy Commissioner for Policy, he argues that the GDPR is an evolution in data protection rather than ‘an onerous imposition of unnecessary and costly red tape’, and points to where criticism on GDPR has focused on its perceived impact on smaller organisations, saying that rather size being relevant, what matters is good information management and building trust.The blog post follows the first two posts, written by Elizabeth Denham and published earlier last month, and explaining firstly the Information Commissioner’s new fining powers with the second looking at the issue of consent. Others will follow on guidance, the burden on business and breach reporting.On fines, Denham warned against ‘scaremongering’ saying that the ICO will not be making early examples of organisations for minor infringements or that maximum fines will become the norm. “The ICO’s commitment to guiding, advising and educating organisations about how to comply with the law will not change under the GDPR. We have always preferred the carrot to the stick.”In her blog on consent, Denham wrote that consent is not a ‘silver bullet’ for the GDPR, pointing to the different lawful bases businesses and organisations will have for processing personal information under the GDPR in addition to consent, including legitimate interests, and urging organisations not to wait for the ICO’s final guidance on consent before beginning preparations.In her first blog, Denham says:“Before the new law comes into effect on 25 May 2018, I feel bound to sort the fact from the fiction.“Because there is a lot of misinformation out there and for many who are new to data protection and the GDPR it’s creating uncertainty. Organisations that want to get it right – and we know that’s the majority – can sometimes feel like rabbits in the headlights, not knowing which way to leap.”All posts are available to read on the Information Commissioner’s blog.

News News News Organisation RSF_en Reporters Without Borders is stunned by Paris-based TV satellite operator Eutelsat’s decision yesterday to stop carrying the broadcasts of Copenhagen-based Kurdish TV station Roj TV on the grounds that a Danish court found it guilty of supporting the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), an armed separatist group regarded by Turkey as a terrorist organization.“We are shocked by this unilateral and outrageous decision violating freedom of expression,” Reporters Without Borders said. “By suspending carriage of Roj TV’s broadcasts, Eutelsat has done what the Danish court refrained from doing. The Danish did not order the closure of Roj TV, which has appealed against the fine it was ordered to pay. “From China to Iran and Saudi Arabia, Eutelset has already shown its lack of regard for freedom of information. Now it is helping to promote an ‘anti-terrorist’ rhetoric with broader political implications. This is a favourite argument that repressive regimes use to justify their media freedom violations. It is also the pretext Turkey used to jail 30 journalists a month ago. Is the French government, a shareholder in Eutelsat, ready to take reponsibility for this decision?”Eutelsat announced yesterday that, because of the Danish court ruling, it had asked its distributors to stop uplinking Roj TV to its satellites “in order to avoid incurring criminal liability as an accomplice to terrorist activities.”Ruling on 10 January that Roj TV “supported the activities of a terrorist organization” from February 2008 to September 2010, a Copenhagen court ordered the two companies that own it to pay a large fine. But the court did not accede to a request from prosecutors to withdraw its broadcasting licence. The station has appealed against the decision.Roj TV has repeatedly been accused of links with the PKK, embroiled since 1984 in a deadly conflict with the Turkish state that recently gained in intensity. The station’s broadcasts were received in 68 countries.
