LeoVegas launches “LeoRegulus”Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

LeoVegas, the Swedish mobile gaming company, has launched a new initiative called LeoRegulus, which aims to tackle the “imbalance” of gender representation in the technology sector. It is expected to inspire more women to begin a career in the technology sector.

“LeoRegulus” offers a dedicated traineeship programme and award scheme for deserving women.

The LeoRegulus Global Traineeship Programme will be 12-month project through which the selected candidate can work with the company’s “Libero” team, based at the LeoVegas site in Stockholm, where they will work across all of its product teams.

LeoVegas, the successful candidates who complete the training could be offered full-time employment on a product team of their choice.

The LeoRegulus Tech Award will build on this by pledging to grant SEK100,000 (£8,600/€9,700/$11,200) to “an initiative, organisation, or person promoting an increased interest in and awareness of tech/AI among women.”

Gustaf Hagman, group chief executive of LeoVegas, said that the industry is “missing out on a lot of potential, crucial perspectives and talent” and called for change.”

“It is something that needs a change when the technology sector in Sweden is booming at the same time as the workforce only consist of 25% women,” he said.

“The main goal is of course to inspire more women to pursue a career in tech, both through the difference the Tech Award can make and the career possibilities that the Traineeship Program offers.”

“At the same time we’re aware that this is only one initiative and many more are needed to make a real difference, therefore we hope that this initiative will motivate more actors in the industry to contribute and do more.”

Hagman also urged other companies to take action over the current situation and do more to attract women to technology roles.

He said: “Just like any other business in the technology sector we value competence over all other factors, therefore, the imbalance between men and women in the sector is so problematic.”

“When 50% of the population consists of women but only a fraction is considering the tech industry as a future workplace, we lose a lot of skills and important perspectives that are crucial for the construction of future technology.

Therefore more actors need to acknowledge the problem and do more to help fix this imbalance.”

Google Allows NJ iGaming Companies to Advertise Using Google AdsReading Time: 1 minute

 

Google has updated its Google Ads policy. The behemoth tech corporation will now allow sports betting companies in New Jersey to advertise using the Google Ads.

This decision is a complete reversal of a previous decision by the company to narrow down the presence of gaming apps in the Google Play Store. A number of high-level gaming executives especially in New Jersey have welcomed the new decision.

According to Yaniv Sherman, an 888 executive, the new Google Ads policy update would enable the company to have “a competitive edge, and it broadens the marketing pie for us to choose from.”

The new version of the Google Ads policy is very effective in helping its users to differentiate between regulated-market operators and unlicensed sites targeting users from other parts of the world.

“The Google ads policy on gambling and games will change in june 2019 to allow state-licensed gambling entities to promote sports betting content in new jersey, as part of a limited beta. After the update, advertisers who wish to promote online sports betting content in new jersey must submit a gambling certification request through the updated policy page,” reads a section of the update.”
