Polish licensed betting turnover grows to PLN6.7bn in 2019

first_img13th January 2020 | By Daniel O’Boyle Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Regulated bookmakers in Poland generated combined turnover of PLN6.7bn (£1.36bn/€1.58bn/$1.76bn) in 2019, a 28.8% year-on-year increase but less than the unlicensed market, according to figures from legal association Graj Legalnie.The state took in PLN800m through gambling taxes from licensed operators, of which STS was the largest, making up 45.5% of the market. Fortuna was the second most popular regulated betting operator in Poland, with a 31.3% market share, while ForBet was in third with a market share of 6.1%.However, Graj Legalnie also pointed out that increased activity from unlicensed operators has meant that they grey market now makes up almost 60% of the overall Polish gaming market. The association noted that, had all of this turnover been taxed, the Polish government would have made an additional PLN1.1bn in tax.Graj Legalnie found that in November 2019, three unlicensed foreign operators had a combined 2.1m hits from Poland, despite the fact that their websites are listed in a blocking register kept by the Polish Ministry of Finance. The association also said that it reported 1830 illegal gambling websites to this register, of which 1303 have not yet been included.In addition, it provided a list of suggestions to limit unlicensed online gambling in Poland.  The association recommended the creation of a dedicated regulator with a precisely defined list of tasks, modelled on the UK’s Gambling Commission or Malta Gaming Authority, to provide oversight to the sector.In addition, Graj Legalnie called for telecommunications services to comply with blocking requests issued for unlicensed gambling websites to ensure enforcement efforts were more effective. The association also called for changes to Poland’s gambling tax structure, in which operators currently pay 12% of turnover.

Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Enter Your Email Address While many UK shares have made strong gains in recent months, a number of companies continue to offer good value for money. Investing in them, and holding them, over the long run could produce a sizeable nest egg. From this a passive income can be drawn.Furthermore, building a diverse portfolio and reinvesting dividends could be a means of reducing risk and increasing potential returns. Over time, this may produce a portfolio capable of sustaining an income significantly higher than the State Pension.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…Investing in undervalued UK shares for the long runAt the moment many UK shares appear to be unpopular among investors. For example, sectors such as travel and leisure, consumer goods and financial services contain companies that trade on low valuations versus their historic levels. Such companies could deliver high returns relative to the wider stock market. Amd that could help an investor to obtain a larger passive income in the long run.The track record of the stock market shows that buying undervalued shares and holding them through a stock market recovery can be a logical approach to capitalising on the ups and downs of equity markets.Reinvesting dividends to make a passive incomeReinvesting dividends received from investments is a sound means of building a larger nest egg in the long run. Certainly, it is tempting to boost an income in the short run via dividends received. However, this could be detrimental to the level of passive income received in future.The past performance of the stock market shows that a large proportion of its total returns have been generated by the reinvestment of dividends. Therefore, anyone who is aiming to obtain a generous income return in the long run may wish to sacrifice short-term spending where possible to build their portfolio value.Diversifying to reduce riskAnother simple step to make a worthwhile passive income in the long term is to diversify among a range of companies and sectors. At the present time, the world economy is experiencing one of its most challenging periods for many years. Therefore, it is difficult to know which sectors will be beneficiaries of likely shifts in spending habits, and which ones will struggle to adapt.As such, it is logical to own a mix of businesses in a portfolio. Over time, they could offer more resilient performance than a concentrated portfolio, as well as higher returns.Generating a £25,000 passive incomeFollowing the above three steps could help an investor to earn a generous passive income in the coming years.The stock market has historically been a sound means through which to build a nest egg. For example, the FTSE 250 has produced 9% annual total returns in the past 20 years. By investing £350 per month at the same rate of return would produce a portfolio valued at £645,000 after 30 years. From this, a 4% annual withdrawal means an income of over £25,000 per year. This is more than double the current State Pension, and could lead to increased financial freedom in the long term.

Please enter your email address here Please enter your name here LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply If you ever complained about “year-end sales” starting right after Halloween, you’re in for a rude awakening.The holiday season is starting earlier than ever this year. Home Depot, for instance, already made plans to roll out its Black Friday discounts in early November.And now, in a Hail Mary effort to get a nation of procrastinators pumping out orders, a bunch of retailers have invented a new shopping day: Oct. 10.You can’t be seriousTry to imagine a version of Black Friday that follows social distancing rules, and you’ll see the dilemma retailers are facing:On one hand: They can’t pack their stores with customers.On the other: The postal system can’t handle all of America buying gifts online in mid-December.This year’s orders need to come in slowly — and way in advance.Why Oct. 10th?Bloomberg explained that the “holiday” (10/10) is supposed to mirror Singles Day, the massive Nov. 11 (11/11) shopping day in China.But the actual details are still shrouded in secrecy. Over 24 big businesses have signed on, though their names aren’t public yet.And even if you plan to stick to the internet for this year’s holiday sales, expect a much earlier than usual timeline: Amazon postponed its massive Prime Day to the fall — and it’s been telling sellers to treat October 5 as the place-holder date.

Photo via TCU AddRan College of Liberal Arts.Student Body President, Abbey Widick, said including diversity in TCU’s current core curriculum would make our graduates and academic profile much stronger. The proposal was approved by 82 percent of student government. The proposal was met with some skepticism from some faculty members concerned it might add more stress for students already worried about graduating on time.The Associate Dean of Undergraduate Affairs in the College of Science and Engineering, Richard Rinewalt, said adding more requirements into the core curriculum will restrict many students in high demanding majors who have few free electives from pursuing minors or double majors.José Carrión, assistant professor in mathematics, said the timetable may demand too much work for faculty to come up with strategies to incorporate DEI into their unit for the short amount of time that they are given.Sean Atkinson, chair of the Academic Excellence Committee. Photo via TCU College of Fine Arts.Sean Atkinson, chair of the Academic Excellence Committee, responded by saying every department must tackle the lack of diversity in the classroom by having support from different areas of the university at the same.Several faculty members recommend a solid proposal and a much more detailed timeline from the committee before the proposal moves any forward.

We call on the authorities to free him at once and to quash this conviction.”Accused of insulting and criticizing the Saudi state and its symbols, and inciting chaos, Kutbi was tried before the Specialized Criminal Court in Riyadh. Initially created in 2008 to handle terrorism-related cases, the court has above all been used to silence dissent.Ten journalists and citizen-journalists are currently unjustly detained in Saudi Arabia, which is ranked 164th out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

SOS to combat east Limerick crime surge

first_imgNewsLocal NewsSOS to combat east Limerick crime surgeBy admin – May 14, 2012 564 Communities to band togetherHAVING suffered armed robberies, break-ins and the theft of items, from copper to cars, members of a county Limerick community are coming together in a bid to put an end to a recent upsurge in crime.David Thompson, closely linked to the Pallasgreen, Doon and Cappamore areas, told the Limerick Post that he had tired of letting criminals get away with it and has planned a meeting with representatives of the community.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “There is desperate crime going on in the areas of Pallasgreen, Doon and Cappamore,“The doors on my own mushroom unit were smashed, there have been two armed robberies, telephone cables stolen, a house ransacked, impostor ESB representatives calling to houses and cars stolen all in the last few weeks.“Unless we take matters into our own hands this will keep happening.“The government are laughing at us up in Dublin; They don’t care about what’s happening in rural parts of the country like ours”, Mr. Thompson claimed.Under government directive, Doon Garda Station was closed last month, along with a second station in Shanagolden.Mr. Thompson said it was difficult to measure the effect of the closure against the recent increase in crime.“When my mushroom unit was broken into, I rang Pallasgreen and Cappamore garda stations and there was no answer.“When I got through to Bruff they did arrive out very promptly, but there is an awful lot of crime for the depleted resources to deal with”.He wants to establish a community policing set-up so that residents could assist in the prevention of crime.“There is a system somewhere in the midlands where locals can choose to sign up for a text alert so that when someone spots suspicious behaviour or a crime, everyone who is registered receives a text to say what has happened.“Something like that could really work here”.He is also hoping that Limerick County Council or Ballyhoura development will be able to fund CCTV cameras for the area so that criminals as a means of identifying and warning-off criminals.Mr. Thompson has liaised with members of the council and the local garda force and has organised a meeting which, he hopes, will a forum for ideas on how to tackle crime in the areas.The meeting is to take place at Pallasgreen Community Hall on Tuesday, May 15 at 8.30pm.“I’m hoping that we can fill the hall and put our heads together to come up with a plan”.   Print Linkedin Twitter Facebookcenter_img Email WhatsApp Advertisement Previous articleElegies for Angels, Punks and Raging QueensNext articleGrieving sister speaks out on tragic loss adminlast_img read more
