Nadia-Tarik YGAM and Caesars Entertainment help pioneer first degree course in Social ChangeReading Time: 2 minutes

 

YGAM, the UK charity that works to inform, educate and safeguard young people against problematic gambling and social gaming, has joined forces with Caesars Entertainment EMEA and Queen Mary University of London to participate in a ground breaking apprenticeship degree course in ‘Social Change’ which has attracted six times more applicants per place than Oxford University. The four-year BSc course comprises two days of study per week with the remaining time spent working with the chosen charity. YGAM’s undergraduate apprentice is 22 year-old Nadia Tarik whose post as Development Officer is being funded by Caesars Entertainment EMEA.

Expanding on its involvement in the pioneering initiative, Sarah Sculpher, Chief Marketing Officer at Caesars Entertainment EMEA says, “Educating on the potential risks of problem gambling is a core facet of our business strategy. Caesars Entertainment has worked extensively with, and provided ongoing financial support to, the Young Gamers & Gamblers Education Trust (YGAM) to promote education and awareness around gambling since its inception. We are tremendously supportive of educating young people about gambling related harm to support the prevention of gambling related problems. Our £50,000 donation over two years will fully fund Nadia’s London living wage role and support costs with YGAM.

Sculpher continues: “Social responsibility is hugely important for all businesses, but particularly so in a business such as gaming, which is exciting but also carries an element of risk. Education is key. It is an integral part of our business strategy to educate and train all our front-line team members on the importance of social responsibility and to ensure that our customers enjoy their casino entertainment in a safe, welcoming and entertaining environment. Education is also at the heart of our long term partnership with YGAM. We support them with financial resources which enables them to recruit people to provide more education where needed in the community, making a real difference to people’s lives. We look forward to watching Nadia’s progress and the positive impact she has.”

Lee Willows, co-founder and CEO of YGAM is delighted the charity has been invited to help spearhead the first degree course in Social Change and that Caesars Entertainment EMEA is helping to facilitate the journey. He stated: “The partnership between the social sector, further education and the commercial world is invigorating and a force for really positive social change. I am extremely grateful to Caesars who share our vision and I am delighted that YGAM, which was formed just five years ago, is being spoken about in the same breath as fellow Social Change degree partners, the Scouts, WaterAid, Action for Children and the Alzheimer’s Society. It is a great privilege to help progress this important development which will help forge pathways into the communities that we serve thanks to the energy and dynamism of student/apprentices such as Nadia and the vision and support of progressive business leaders such as Caesars.”

QTech Games Targets Indian Market with New Recruitment Drive

9-3 QTech Games Targets Indian Market with New Recruitment DriveReading Time: 2 minutes

 

QTech Games has announced further expansion plans across emerging markets in Asia, featuring a new recruitment drive around India’s breakout territory.

As the fastest-growing games distributor in Asia, QTech Games is logically broadening its reach into the world’s second-most populous country, where it is now taking applications from experienced sales people with knowledge of the India market.

The proven success of QTech Games’ new partnership model is opening up new territories for operators looking to secure a foothold in the Asian market via QTech Games’ local expertise and unique infrastructure.

“At QTech Games, we’re currently seeing the greatest growth in India. That’s no surprise considering a ramping population of 1.3 billion, near universal access to 4G, and dropping costs for smartphones and the internet, even in the backwaters. Consequently, India’s online sector has welcomed a raft of acquisitions this year, as operators plant their flags in the sand ahead of the expected boom. Accordingly, QTech Games is now offering operators the chance to become the integration partner for new content / studios, removing the hassle of integrations in order that internal tech teams can concentrate on value-added processes. In fact, our company axiom is simply: one seamless integration for all the emerging and growth markets,” Markus Nasholm, CEO of QTech Games said.

“A flexible platform and an open mind are the only things you must be sure to take with you, wherever you’re travelling across this ever-changing landscape – and, at QTech, our market-leading platform has you securely packed for all the best, localized games – majoring in mobile. Asian operators aren’t too bothered if you have the ‘traditional’ game providers. That said, if you don’t have the Fish game in China, there’s a 0% probability of becoming successful. And it’s a similar story with the Andar Bahar card game in India, where the eyes of the industry are converging right now. As a result, we’re already on a strong recruitment drive to hire the best and brightest minds as our tentacles extend into ever more culturally-specific and diverse territories. So, if you’re an expert with relevant experience in the territory, we’d love to hear from you,” Markus Nasholm added.

Slovak Authorities Charges Tipos CEO with Money Laundering Case

8-4 Slovak Authorities Charges Tipos CEO with Money Laundering CaseReading Time: < 1 minute

 

Slovak authorities have charged two employees of the Tipos national lottery on charges of violating their duties and money laundering. The CEO of the lottery, Ján Barczi, and the head of the IT department, Miloš Prelec, were charged.

Both are accused of “violating their duties when managing entrusted property and of money laundering,” Slovakian police wrote on their Facebook page.

The National Criminal Agency of Slovakia (NAKA) is investigating Tipos for allegedly allowing money to pass from gambling accounts to private bank accounts without placing any gambling bets.

The national gambling company has been under investigation by NAKA for more than a year. In April 2018, the company closed 142 player accounts on suspicion of being part of a money laundering scheme. Tipos said at the time about 260,000 euros was laundered, though authorities continue to investigate whether the number is larger.

Thirty NAKA members participated in last month’s raid on Tipos following a tip about the scheme from a whistleblower. NAKA was looking for evidence of the alleged money laundering.
