Matchbook-EBF Matchbook’s £100,000 bonus boosts EBF race series to further enhance the stayers’ programmeReading Time: 4 minutes

 

A series of races created in 2015 by the BHA and the British European Breeders’ Fund to boost the stayers’ programme, has been provided with a huge financial boost. Matchbook Betting Exchange have teamed up with the EBF to match the EBF’s prize money contribution and put in place a £100,000 bonus for any winner from the series who goes on to win a Group 1 race over 10 furlongs or more in the UK and Ireland in their three year old year.

The Matchbook EBF Future Stayers’ Series consists of 16 races, all with an increased minimum prize value of £14,000, are open to the progeny of stallions and mares that had won over distances of 10 furlongs or more. The series begins at Yarmouth on August 7 and runs through to Chelmsford on December 13. Each of the races, to be run over at least 7f, will be worth a minimum of £14,000 and the series has a total value of £283,000.

The facts
• 16 races run across 13 racecourses from August to December over a minimum distance of 7 furlongs.
• First race run at Yarmouth on the 7th of August.
• Minimum prize value £14,000 and a total series value of £283,000.
• £100,000 bonus for any winner in the series who goes on to win a Group 1 in the UK or Ireland over 10 furlongs or more in their three-year-old year.
• £100,000 split as follows – £70,000 owner, £10,000 breeder, £10,000 trainer, £10,000 stable staff of trainer’s yard, at least £1,000 of which to go to the winning groom.
• Star graduates include Cracksman, Stradivarius, Across The Stars, Royal Marine and Line of Duty.

Philip Mitchell, Chairman of the EBF said: “The bonus is eminently winnable – if it had been in place in the 2016 season for example, Cracksman would have been the first recipient. He won an EBF sire/dam restricted race at Newmarket towards the end of the 2016 season and then went on to win the Champions’ Stakes (Gr.1) at Ascot over 1m2f at the end of his three-year-old career.”

Matchbook CEO Mark Brosnan said: “Matchbook are extremely passionate about the future of horse racing and we want our sponsorships to make a difference, whilst also providing exposure for our brand. We are incredibly excited to partner with the EBF on this innovative initiative, which we believe supports the grassroots of the sport. Horses like Stradivarius and Dee Ex Bee exemplify how this series provides an insight into the staying stars of the future.”

Charlie Appleby, Trainer of Line Of Duty, a star graduate of The Matchbook EBF Future Stayers’ Series, said: “It is fantastic to see the EBF supporting and promoting a better programme for middle distance and future staying type horses. The sire/dam restricted races are a great initiative and provide an excellent platform for potential top class horses of this type.”

Classic winning trainer, Hugo Palmer said:  “The Matchbook EBF Future Stayers’ Series will further help promote middle-distance and staying horses, which can only be a good thing for our sport. With 16 series races per season worth a minimum of £14,000 and an attractive potential bonus on offer the following year, it is an exciting time for trainers, owners and breeders alike.”

Ruth Quinn, Director of International Racing and Racing Development: “The Future Stayers project is a superb initiative which plays into the ever-evolving focus on developing and retaining staying talent here in Britain. There are now valuable incentives at multiple ages to encourage horses with an aptitude for stamina, and it is pleasing to see how the industry has come together to address an important challenge for the future of the sport and the breed.”

After a mandatory corona break of several weeks, casinos and gambling resorts in Germany are reopening. Operators have to comply with numerous hygiene regulations to minimize infection risks for customers and employees. This is why German Wiesbaden Casino has opted for DERMALOG’s non-contact fever detection.

With its Fever Detection Camera, DERMALOG has developed a solution that measures body temperatures fast and accurately when walking by and can significantly reduce the risk of infection spreading in many areas. The Wiesbaden Casino has chosen the company’s system as part of its hygiene concept.

At the entrance of the prestigious casino, customers have to make the contactless fever check by DERMALOG before entering. The camera measures body temperature within one second by scanning people’s faces using state-of-the-art sensor technology. If an increased temperature is detected, the system displays an alert message. The solution sets data protection standards by measuring without capturing or storing any personal data. High accuracy, even from a distance of up to 2 meters, is another advantage of the camera. As an option, DERMALOG’s temperature check includes automated mask detection. If an area requires the use of face masks, the DERMALOG solution kindly advises people without appropriate protection to wear one.

“In these times, health protection for our guests and employees has absolute priority. The Fever Detection Camera makes a significant contribution here,” says Andreas Krautwald, managing director of the Wiesbaden Casino.

DERMALOG’s thermal camera is already being used in more than 60 countries. The “Made in Germany” system protects retail stores, offices, manufacturing halls, sports grounds, events, hotels, banks, public authorities and many other locations.

Cloudbet Innovates Around UFC 250 With In-Play Betting & Best Prices

Amanda-Nunes Cloudbet Innovates Around UFC 250 With In-Play Betting & Best Prices
Amanda-Nunes-1 Cloudbet Innovates Around UFC 250 With In-Play Betting & Best PricesReading Time: 2 minutes

 

Amanda Nunes is fighting to preserve the longest winning streak in the women’s UFC this weekend, and Cloudbet is offering a swathe of betting options to excite players as they watch history unfold.

Players will be able to use in-play betting at Cloudbet to place new wagers between rounds on Nunes’ featherweight title defence against Felicia Spencer. The pioneering bitcoin sportsbook is aiming to offer the world’s best prices — with margins as low as 2% — on this fight and the rest of the UFC 250 card.

Nunes won her featherweight title by knocking Cris Cyborg out during UFC 232, and players can bet on the same outcome for Felicia Spencer, thanks to new prop markets from Cloudbet. Up to 28 prop markets are available per fight this weekend, on outcomes including win by KO/TKO and in which round a bout will end.

Props betting currently represents the fastest-growing engagement sector in global sports betting. As a result, Cloudbet is innovating its product set across UFC, where technical-outcome performance betting is in increasing demand.

“All eyes will be on whether Amanda Nunes can make history,” a Cloudbet spokesman said. “We’re trying to create maximum engagement and excitement around that fight and the rest of UFC 250.”

In addition to the enhanced UFC offering, the Cloudbet casino recently partnered with Relax Gaming to offer legendary UFC ring announcer Bruce Buffer’s very own MMA-inspired slot game. The “It’s Time!!” slot gives players a chance to win up to 2500x their bet.

Players can expect similar offerings for all upcoming MMA events on Cloudbet, which relaunched itself in late April following its biggest makeover since starting business in 2013. The MMA offerings are among the host of new features introduced on the new Cloudbet.com, along with USDT betting, esports markets and on-site cryptocurrency purchases.

UFC 249 last month marked the return of the competition from its Covid-induced hibernation, and betting operators predictably saw significant MMA business after the two-month layoff. The Ferguson-Gaethje and Cejudo-Cruz title fights were the Cloudbet sportsbook’s biggest events by turnover in the week that UFC 249 took place.

The new Cloudbet supports Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash and Ethereum, with more new coins on the way. New players are eligible for a sign-up bonus up to 5 BTC/BCH/ETH. Besides MMA, Cloudbet’s sportsbook offers odds on a multitude of markets around the world, while the Cloudbet casino has hundreds of slots and a live-dealer experience with all classic table games.
