Douvan disappoints but LeoVegas revels in first Cheltenham

Posted on by

first_img Submit LeoVegas confirmed that its first Cheltenham had “exceeded all expectations”, after watching 2/9 favourite Douvan come 7th in the Champion Chase on a triumphant day for the bookmakers.Less than a year after launching in time for Euro 2016, the Swedish-based mobile gaming specialists acknowledged that whilst a hit could be around the corner, Ruby Walsh’s disappointing start to the festival had helped them get off to a flying start.Edward Rycroft, Sportsbook Manager at LeoVegas, said: “This is LeoVegas Sports’ first Cheltenham and the interest we have seen has exceeded all our expectations. We are using the 2017 festival as a learning experience to help us develop and grow our Racing product for the benefit of our customers.“The Neptune Hurdle saw Willoughby Court just keep his nose in front of Neon Wolf to kick-start a thrilling day two for bookies, but that was followed-up by an incredible race with Might Bite biting the bookies back in a photo finish.“We then saw quite possibly the biggest shock of the entire festival as Special Tiara’s monumental effort saw him beat red hot favourite Douvan in the Queen Mother Champion Chase.“Our Price boosts on all Ruby Walsh’s rides have gone down fantastically with our players, and Ruby’s disappointing opening two days mean these boosted odds are yet to hit us with the blow we are expecting. However, with another two days of enhanced odds on all of Ruby’s rides, we are aware this hit may well be just around the corner.”Stephen Harris, horse racing guru at bettingexpert, commented: “The bookmakers hammered the punters on day two, with only Might Bite providing some respite. The defeat of Douvan was the icing on the cake for the entire industry.“Bettingexpert followers suffered a major disappointment when Neon Wolf was touched off in the first on the nod, while Project Bluebook also ran a blinder to fill the frame at 14/1 in the Fred Winter.” Björn Nilsson: How Triggy is delivering digestible data through pre-set triggers August 28, 2020 Kambi takes full control of LeoVegas sportsbook portfolio August 26, 2020 Related Articles Share LeoVegas hits back at Swedish regulations despite Q2 successes August 13, 2020 Share StumbleUponlast_img read more

Tennis IRP demands tough love on data supplies as a fix for integrity

Posted on by

first_img Submit Share TIU suspends Antonis Kalaitzakis over betting breaches July 21, 2020 StumbleUpon Share Sportradar combats social media abuse with player protection solution August 17, 2020 TIU denies two requests to lift provisional suspensions July 27, 2020 Related Articles Tennis’ Independent Review Panel (IRP) has published its much anticipated ‘Final Report’ on betting related-integrity issues, measures and protections commissioned jointly by the sport’s governing bodies of the ATP, WTA, ITF, and the Grand Slam Board.The IRP concludes a two-year study headed up by leading UK sports QC Adam Lewis, whose research is supported by US attorney Beth Wilkinson and Swiss Judge Marc Henzelin.Publishing the ‘IRP’s interim report on evidence’ last April, Lewis highlighted a number of concerns with regards to tennis’ relationship with betting, detailing that IRP’s research to date, had proven that ‘corruption had taken root at the lower levels of the game’.  In its April update, the IRP provisionally advised tennis’ governing bodies to undertake major structural reforms to their ranking systems, professional athlete accreditations, tournament frameworks, prize pools and education programmes.Moving to complete its research, the IRP would open its interim conclusions and recommendations to tennis and betting stakeholders as part of a consultation process. In its final report, the IRP credits Paul Leyland of Regulus Partners and Patrick Jay (independent advisor) as betting consultants assisting research.“The Panel’s findings are based on its comprehensive analysis of betting-related and other integrity issues facing professional tennis, including interviews of witnesses, examination of records and documents, and consultation with experts in various fields. In producing its Final Report, the Panel has fully considered all of the submissions that it received through the consultation process” the IRP details in its press release.With regards to its ‘final recommendations’, the IRP presents the frank response that there is no common panacea for tennis-betting’s integrity issues. Instead, the IRP presents a ‘package of measures’ (12 recommendations in total) aiming to strengthen tennis governing bodies’ frameworks, knowledge and systems against corruption and bad actors.In its recommendations, the IRP states that breaches of integrity can be effectively reduced by restructuring live data supplier agreements, with the panel recommending the following data-led measures for tennis stakeholders:Discontinuing the supply of official data for tennis’ development tour ‘The ITF World Tennis (“WTT”)’, which takes shape on 1 January 2019 and consists of former ITF $15,000 range tournaments.Empowering the Tennis Integrity Unit (TIU) to better monitor betting markets, and gain the capabilities to disrupt betting markets/events based on unofficial data of tennis sanctioned professional tournaments/matches/events.Allowing the TIU as tennis integrity supervisor to impose quotas/limits on the supply of live scoring data, in particular with regards to the lower levels of professional tennis.Imposing a mandatory ‘integrity-related contractual obligation’ on betting operators and data suppliers as a condition of the commercial use of official tennis syndicated live scoring data.“The Panel considers, following consultation, that the significant limitations described above are necessary and strike the appropriate balance at this time between all the competing considerations. The Panel recognises that these recommendations will have an adverse impact on the ITF’s revenues, a substantial part of which is reinvested in promoting tennis at what is essentially a developmental level of the game.”In its report the IRP recognises tennis governing bodies relationship with leading sports data firm Sportradar as the principal supplier of live ITF scoring feeds since 2012 – ‘a partnership which has generated tennis considerable funds’.Strengthening its data provisions and future best practices, the IRP states that tennis should move to ‘establish a newly empowered TIU’ whose responsibilities will be monitored by an independent supervisory board – ‘in particular as to the extent of any future sale of ITF data after the Sportradar contract comes to an end’.last_img read more

Posted on by

first_imgShare Betfred debuts new rockabilly TV campaign promoting ‘Nifty Fifty’ live draws July 31, 2020 Submit StumbleUpon Share Ascot adds three-year extension to Sky Sports Racing deal August 14, 2020 Related Articles ITV secures three-year British racing broadcast deal August 5, 2020 As part of a three-year deal running from 2019-2021, Betfred has been named as the ‘Official Bookmaker’ of Ascot racecourse and the Royal Ascot Festival, which will see them operate the two on-site betting shops within the Grandstand. In addition to operating the on-site shops, the new contract will see the bookmaker sponsoring the Betfred Heritage Handicap on Summer Mile Day, 13th July as well as being named the official bookmakers of the Dubai Duty Free Shergar Cup in August.Fred Done, Betfred Founder, praised the alliance: “A big thank you to the Ascot team who have been a pleasure to work with and I am delighted to have agreed a deal to become the official bookmaker of Ascot and Royal Ascot and to see the Betfred brand back on the racecourse. “I will be offering Ascot punters the terrific value and bonuses available in all of our high street shops and look forward to welcoming you to the newly refurbished Betfred shops.”Betfred had previously held a sponsorship contract at Ascot racecourse, but ceased sponsoring as deregulation saw racecourses launch their own on-course pool betting. The operator pulled its presence from all racetracks, aside from Chelmsford City, a Betfred-owned race-sponsorship package estimated at around £6m.Done has, however, maintained a relationship with Ascot via his Totepool subsidiary following the Bet With Ascot partnership, launched last year. Guy Henderson, Chief Executive Officer at Ascot Racecourse, also welcomed the new relationship: “We welcome this further strengthening of ties with Betfred, following the launch of Bet With Ascot last year in partnership with Totepool and, at Royal Ascot, the Hong Kong Jockey Club. “Our thanks go to Roy Holbrook and Winning Post Bookmakers for all their support in their tenure as our on-course betting shop provider.”Chief Commercial Officer at Ascot Racecourse, Juliet Slot, added: “We are delighted to welcome Betfred back to Ascot as Official Bookmaker. On course, Betfred will manage our fixed odds offering from two shops within the Grandstand. “Betfred join our portfolio of 14 other Official Supplier brands and will be an important part of helping us deliver an excellent customer experience alongside our own pool betting operation, Bet With Ascot. We look forward to further developing our relationship with Betfred.”last_img read more
