first_imgWhen it did produce evidence on this matter, Spelinspektionen found that players could effectively deposit more than SEK5,000 in a week by reversing previous withdrawals, which could be as much as two months old. Videoslots said the feature existed due to player requests. 26th January 2021 | By Daniel O’Boyle “Videoslots notes the decision made by the Swedish regulator and is pleased that it confirms compliant implementation of the bonus, deposit and time limits put in place by the Swedish government to counter a perceived increase of risks during the Covid-19 pandemic,” Videoslots said. The operator said it will comply and remove reverse withdrawal functionality, but added that it still did not believe that it was in breach of the temporary regulations. During an inspection to ensure operators complied with the country’s controversial deposit cap, Spelinspektionen requested information explaining how Videoslots enforces its deposit cap in July. “We do not, however, believe that we were in breach of the COVID-19, or any other regulations, and call for greater clarity to aid responsible operators like ourselves. Furthermore, we maintain our position that these regulations are both unreasonable and unjustifiable.” The Swedish Gaming Authority (Spelinspektionen) has issued Videoslots with an injunction after discovering players could use reverse withdrawals to circumvent the country’s SEK5,000 deposit cap. “With Videoslots’ interpretation of the provision, it would be sufficient for a licensee to state to players, ‘You have a deposit limit of SEK5,000 per week for commercial online gaming,’ no matter how much money can be deposited and used for online gaming in practice,” it said. “Spelinspektionen does not share in that assessment.” However, Videoslots initially chose not to answer a question about reverse withdrawals, where a customer cancels a decision to take funds out of their account. Regions: Europe Nordics Sweden Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter However, Spelinspektionen rejected this interpretation. It pointed out that the freedom to offer services within the EU may be restricted, in order to protect the public interest, provided the measures are proportional. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Email Address The regulator added that Videoslots’ deposit cap amounted to little more than a warning to players, rather than something that was fully enforced. Spelinspektionen noted that the operator also complied with bonus and login time limits, and that it did require players to set a deposit limit of up to SEK5,000 upon login. The operator argued that the deposit cap was contrary to EU law and said it was pursuing legal action against the Swedish state over the rules. Tags: Deposit Cap Spelinspektionen Video slots “According to the decision, these regulations also prohibit the withdrawal-related functionality which remained in question. We will comply and remove this functionality, having already offered to do so during the assessment.”center_img In December 2020, it fined both Kindred brand Spooniker and former racing monopoly AB Trav och Gallop (ATG) after discovering a different loophole in each operators’ enforcement of the cap. The injunction against Videoslots marks the third time the regulator has taken action over apparent violations of the deposit cap. “The regulations state that the upper limit for deposits at commercial online gaming amounts is set at a maximum of SEK5,000 per week and that the licensee is obliged to ensure that the limit cannot be exceeded,” Spelinspektionen explained. Finally, it added that it believed the cap might actually be a negative for player protection, as it may push players towards the unregulated market. Casino regulation However, it said the reverse withdrawals clearly allowed a player to circumvent the law. The regulator ultimately ruled that the violation was not trivial, and therefore warranted more than a warning. Equally, it added, it was not serious enough to merit a licence suspension. “Not only are they contradicted by facts and damaging to licensed operators, they are also completely counterproductive to their declared aim of player protection and push players into the arms of illegal operators,” it said. “We will therefore continue to challenge these regulations.” The deposit cap was implemented in July 2020 and although it was intended to last only until the end of that year, it is now set to be extended until June 2021. It has drawn opposition from across the gambling industry, including operator association Branscheforenigen for Onlinespel (BOS). The operator will face a SEK250,000 (£22,000/€24,800/$30,000) per week fine if the issue is not corrected. As a result, it issued an injunction to remove reverse withdrawals. Failure to do so will see the operator incur a fine of SEK250,000 per week until the change is implemented. When the change is brought in, Spelinspektionen must also be notified. In its response, the operator explained that it was impossible to log in without setting a deposit limit of SEK5,000 or less per week. This was supported by a test, inspection and certification report from an accredited testing lab. Topics: Casino & games Legal & compliance Casino regulation Online casino Compliance Regulation Payments At ATG and Spooniker, players could set a higher cap, but those who did could not play casino games. However, a player could simply set a high limit, deposit more money and then lower their limit and play online casino games with more than SEK5,000.  Although it noted that reverse withdrawals were in place before the deposit cap came into force, the regulator said this did not change the fact that they meant Videoslots violated the rules. Videoslots called for greater clarity around the rules, in order to ensure that further operators do not unknowingly break them. Videoslots threatened with fine over Swedish deposit cap violationlast_img read more

first_imgBoston marchers, June 13.WW photo: Stevan KirschbaumWe demand fair and equitable Pride fees. It is an outrage that community organizations and nonprofits, serving the most vulnerable of our LGBTQ community, cannot afford to march. We demand a higher corporate rate that covers the expense and fees for small nonprofit organizations to participate in Pride. If corporations are going to use Pride to profit from our community, they can at least pay more for the opportunity.We demand that Boston Pride take their hands off Black and Latino Pride.We demand that the funding allocated to Black and Latino Pride events be free of interference from Boston Pride’s predominately white board of directors, and used by the Black and Latino LGBTQ community as they see fit.We demand more diversity in the board of directors for Boston Pride.We demand that the board represent our community by recruiting people of color, trans people and working-class people. We demand a Pride board as diverse as our community, and not solely comprised of wealthy white capitalist gays and lesbians.We demand that corporate sponsors be approved not only based on how they treat their LGBTQ employees, but on how they treat their customers and the communities in which they operate.Big-bank sponsors and participants are complicit with gentrification and predatory lending that have had devastating impacts on communities of color. There’s no pride in corporate destruction of Black and Brown communities! We demand a review board of all corporate sponsors that will reject corporations that exploit the most vulnerable of our community.We demand a Pride parade route that marches through a community of color. Hosting Boston Pride in the South End and downtown area purposely excludes communities of color and perpetuates the idea that communities of color are somehow more homophobic than white people. We all know better and demand a Pride that includes our neighborhoods!We demand that Boston Pride remembers that Pride started as a riot led by trans and gender non-conforming people of color!Our liberation as LGBTQ people isn’t finished. Without the liberation of all oppressed people, it will never be complete. We demand that Pride themes focus on the political issues of our diverse community. We don’t need more parties and meaningless themes. We need justice.Our Demands of the Boston LGBTQ community: We demand Boston’s mainstream LGBTQ organizations hire more LGBTQ leaders of color in senior management positions. We demand more transgender women of color hired in leadership roles at Boston’s mainstream LGBTQ organizations. We deserve shelter reform for LGBTQ youth of color and trans individuals of color. LGBTQ youth are overrepresented in homeless youth, and yet there is currently only one youth shelter in the area that accommodates their needs. We demand fully funded youth shelters and reform of the Department of Children and Families to provide help to LGBTQ children from homophobic and transphobic families. We demand the mainstream LGBTQ community acknowledge the growing HIV and STI [sexually transmitted infection] rates in neighborhoods of color in Boston. Despite the rates of HIV/STIs decreasing for white gay men, it has increased in Black and Latino MSM [men who have sex with men] and trans communities. We demand our community respond by developing an LGBTQ health center in a community of color. We demand accessible education and resources that aren’t coupled with criminalization and racism. We demand all transgender health care, including gender-affirming surgeries, be included into MassHealth and all Massachusetts health care plans at no extra cost, under an informed consent model and without gatekeepers, especially for transgender minors. We demand that our community come together to fight the recent closing of health centers operated by and for people of color, such as the Latin-American Health Institute and Massachusetts for Asian and Pacific Islander Health. We demand that our community come out publicly against holding the 2024 Olympics in Boston. The Olympics will bring unprecedented gentrification, surveillance, cutting of social services and punitive policing to our city. We demand that more city funding be funneled to LGBTQ organizations of color and safe spaces. We demand that our community finally acknowledge the systemic racism in this city.Boston is consistently listed by many media sources as one of the most racist cities in the U.S. We demand the city of Boston commit itself to ending the assault/harassment of LGBTQ people of color by the Boston Police Department.See ‘Pride confronts racism’ on page 1 or therainbowmass.com for more information.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

ADAI CEO Jenni Browning says it is going to look a bit different this year due to COVID-19.“To make sure it’s safe for all to attend, we’re having the ice cream drive-thru. So, there will be an option where you actually can drive through the Indians location and they’ll be ice cream novelties, so pre-wrapped novelties instead of the scooped ice cream sundae. So, you can take that home and enjoy it or enjoy it on the way home.”Browning says you can also park downtown, walk up to Victory Field (home of the Indianapolis Indians AAA baseball team), and enjoy a picnic on the outfield lawn with your ice cream.“All we ask is a donation of some sort, and all the donations will go toward Second Helpings to help feed the people in need in Indy.”The Indianapolis Indians will also match up to $5,000 in donations for Second Helpings.Browning encourages folks to preorder their ice cream that will be available for pickup from 11am-1:30 on Friday.“We already have about $1000 in preorders of ice cream novelties. You can do that on our website, winnersdrinkmilk.com. These novelties that we’re getting are from a variety of people. We can’t do this, and we couldn’t do it for the 30 past years, without the ice cream donations and toppings that Kroger, Nestle, Prairie Farms, and even PepsiCo with water, have donated all this product to make it possible so that we can give even more money back to Second Helpings.”Indiana ranks second in the country in ice cream production behind California.

Justice AK Menon noted that the said case does not fall under the category of “extremely urgent matter” which is what the Chief Justice of the High Court has mandated special benches to hear during this lockdown period. Both the applicants Bawa and Sankaran are accused under Section 447 of the Companies Act, which is cognizable and non-bailable, the offence attracts imprisonment upto 10 years and not less than 6 months. Following the Supreme Court’s directions on March 23, the State of Maharashtra constituted a High Powered Committee on March 24 chaired by the Chairman of the Maharashtra State Legal Services Authority. In a meeting on March 25, guidelines for release of the prisoners were framed by the Committee. The Committee directed prisoners (both undertrial and convicts) who are accused of offences punishable with 7 years or less, shall be released on temporary bail or parole. On Friday, a lockdown court granted temporary bail (75 days) to the applicants on health grounds, on a personal bond of 30,000 in view of the COVID-19 pandemic. Judge PR Sitre granted bail after perusing their medical records asking them to surrender once the bail term was over and to deposit their passport with the investigating officer. Applicants were arrested by the Serious Fraud Investigation Office (SFIO) in April 2019 in connection with IL&FS case for alleged irregularities. While Bawa is 66 years old, Sankaran is 58 and both filed separate applications before a special court last week seeking bail on grounds of “ill-health and old age.” Judge Sitre had noted- “On perusal of document on record, it appears that the applicants are suffering from various diseases and are also of old age. Considering the prevailing situations of COVID 19 in the country and the stage of investigation, temporary bail is allowed.” According to the Serious Fraud Investigations Office (SFIO), IFIN granted loans to external parties, many of whom defaulted. The IFIN management adopted “fraudulent practices” in order to prevent these loans from being classified as non-performing assets, violating RBI guidelines, SFIO’s complaint states.

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(GORHAM, N.H.) –The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department said it may charge a hiker for search-and-rescue efforts after he was found staying at an upscale hotel.The man, 70-year-old Christophe Chamley of Massachusetts, had told his wife he would be returning from his hike in the White Mountains on April 23. Chamley was still not home at 3:48 a.m. and his wife called 911, which triggered the search.About three hours after the 911 call, the New Hampshire State Police located Chamley’s car at the Appalachian Mountain Club Pinkham Notch, but did not find him. Chamley, who has an undisclosed medical condition, did not leave his family a hiking itinerary.By 10 a.m. that morning, a large-scale search was underway with rescue teams from the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department, Androscoggin Valley Search and Rescue, the U.S. Forest Service, snowcats from the Mount Washington State Park and a National Guard helicopter.During the search, authorities spoke with the Mount Washington Hotel and found out that Chamley had checked in at 1 a.m. Troopers went the hotel and found Chamley, who said he couldn’t complete his planned route and decided to go to the hotel instead. He said he had messaged his wife to let her know, but the message had not gone through.Chamley said it wasn’t until he woke up the next morning around 11 a.m., due to exhaustion, that he became aware of the search.A statement from Androscoggin Valley Search and Rescue said, “Failure to communicate plans and confirm that loved ones had received his message that he was all right caused the reporting of him as overdue. That, coupled with his age and medical condition, caused an urgent response from Fish and Game when none was needed.”New Hampshire Fish and Game is expected to submit the expenses to the state attorney general’s office for review and will later decide if Chamley will have to pay the bill for the search.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

first_imgAustin Fire Department(AUSTIN, Texas) — Investigators in Austin, Texas, are still searching for the man who was caught on camera attempting to set a Muslim community center on fire. The suspect was captured on security video at about 12:30 a.m. Tuesday going through a fence, “pouring what appears to be gasoline on the side of the building and then attempting to light the pieces of paper on fire,” Austin Fire Capt. Andy Reardon said at a news conference Wednesday. The suspect then tried to throw the paper on the North Austin Muslim Community Center, he said.It appears he was at the center for about 20 or 30 minutes, Reardon said.At about 6:30 a.m., fire crews were called due to an odor of gasoline and investigators then found crumpled up, burned pieces of paper in a field near the building, Reardon said. “We are working vigilantly with law enforcement to apprehend the perpetrator,” the community center said in a Facebook post Wednesday. “As a Muslim community, we stand against all acts of violence against sanctified places of worship: whether it be against a church, a mosque, a synagogue, or a temple.” “We will continue to be vigilant as a community to keep the Masjid and its congregants safe,” the center continued. “We are undeterred and will continue to worship and serve. ” Austin police have stepped up patrols in the area, Reardon said.Authorities are looking to pursue a minimum charge of attempted arson, a second-degree felony, he said. The suspect tried to disguise his face as he reached the cameras, Reardon said. “We’re hoping somebody in the public can recognize him and come forward,” he said. Anyone with information is asked to call the Crimestoppers Tip Line at 512-472-8477 (TIPS).Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
