Gambling operator Tabcorp has announced that David Attenborough will retire from his roles as chief executive and managing director in the first half of 2021.

Tabcorp will embark on a global search for a new CEO after David Attenborough announced he will be stepping down. The search for a new CEO comes as the company announced that board member Steven Gregg would succeed chairman Paula Dwyer as the company’s chairman when she retires from the board at the end of the year.

“The combination with Tatts is now largely complete and, as such, now is the right time to start the process to appoint the next CEO who can work with the board and management team to take the company forward,” Attenborough said.

“Until then, I am totally committed to steering Tabcorp through the COVID-19 pandemic and ensuring that our businesses are best positioned for the future,” Attenborough added.

Tabcorp, which merged with Tatts in 2017 in an $11bn deal, announced the changes to the Australian Securities Exchange on Thursday.

“With the integration of Tatts nearing completion, the time is now right for a new chairman to lead the Tabcorp board into the future. The appointment of Steven Gregg will provide continuity of leadership and an orderly transition as the company identifies and transitions to a new managing director and CEO,” Dwyer said.

“I look forward to working with my board colleagues and executive team to realise the opportunities Tabcorp has following the Tabcorp-Tatts combination: to drive shareholder returns and the continued trust of our customers, business partners, employees, governments and the broader community,” Gregg said.

Scientific Games Corporation announce the official “go live” of the Turkey National Lottery’s new instant ticket retail and digital gaming systems and point-of-sale terminals across an initial network of more than 5,000 retailers, growing to 10,000 retailers later this year. The project, which began a year ago in the nation with a population of 82 million, also brings Scientific Games’ world-leading retail and digital instant “scratch” games to Turkish players for the first time through the 10-year concession awarded by the Turkey Wealth Fund to Sisal Şans, a joint venture between Turkish Şans Dijital and Italian SISAL S.p.A. (“SISAL”).

As part of the National Lottery program, Scientific Games has provided an advanced instant ticket gaming system, 10,000 WAVE2122-102 Scientific Games’ Success In Turkey Continues With National Lottery Program retailer terminals, and its Open Gaming System (OGS) platform for launching first and third-party digital scratch game content. Additionally, Sisal Şans has provided a mobile app to 800 instant game street vendors. New instant games from Scientific Games, including GOLD, LUCKY MOUNTAIN and 12 MONTHS LUCK, have been well-received by Turkish players, with a 200,000 (TL) top prize paid on the third day following the National Lottery’s launch.

New watchdog formed to protect punter’s interests

ukast-1 New watchdog formed to protect punter’s interestsReading Time: 2 minutes

 

A new voluntary organisation has been formed with the aim of protecting members of the betting public from rogue tipsters. The UK Association of Sports Tipping has just launched after 2 well known reviewers joined forces to organise things.

Chris Sowerby and Peter Philipson together have conducted over 2000 service reviews and have wide experience of the range of tipsters that are available. They commented that “UKAST will for the first time allow punters to check if a service being promoted operates in an open and honest manner.”

UKAST’s aim is to offer independent verification and accountability for tipster services operating in the UK. It provides objective information to allow potential customers to make informed choices about tipster services, whilst at the same time providing genuine and authentic services with a recognisable accreditation that attests to their fairness, transparency and integrity.

All membership applications will be actively vetted and approved members will be entered on the public database. In addition a disputes resolution facility is available which certified members have agreed to comply with.

Approved members may display their registered details with a watermarked badge as shown.

The first commercial member is Bet Chat which publishes football services and general betting advice. Founder Josh Allen said “The sports tipping industry has been sorely in need of a verification body for many years now. Not only does the lack of one lead to consumers falling foul of scams and incompetent tipping, it also results in scepticism around genuine tipster platforms.

In Chris and Peter, UKAST is run by two people with exceptional experience in the world of proofing and reviewing and I see them as the ideal duo to head up this new venture. I didn’t need to think twice about submitting my platform to their verification service, and nor should anybody else!”

Other industry players have welcomed the formation of UKAST including Brian Chappell from Justice for Punters which fights for a ‘fair playing field’ for those who like a bet. He said, “J4P welcomes this new Association and the standards it is trying to achieve. We wish UKAST all the best.”

Soon the public should be asking any tipster or service that is not a UKAST member why that is.

Online slot developer Stakelogic has launched its latest slot “The Legend of Hercules” which takes players to the heart of a fierce ancient Greek battle.

Players fight alongside the legend himself in this 5×3 reel, 30 payline slot in order to claim their share of ancient treasures and gold. They are helped in their fight for dominance and big wins with a range of bonus features including Stacked Wilds and Stacked Scatters.

Wilds can land at random at any time during the base game where they stack on top of each other to increase the chance of landing a winning combination. Stack seven Scatter Symbols across the reels and the Free Spin bonus round will be triggered.

“The Legend of Hercules takes a classic and popular slot theme and gives it the Stakelogic treatment. This means striking graphics, authentic sound and the most engaging and entertaining gameplay imaginable,” Stephan van den Oetelaar, CEO of Stakelogic, said.

“The Stakelogic team has incredible momentum behind it following a run of hugely successful games and we believe The Legend of Hercules will prove to be just as popular as other chart-topping titles launched earlier in the year,” Stephan van den Oetelaar added.
