Jamul Indian Village of California Recruits New Managers to Join World-Class Executive Team of Jamul CasinoReading Time: 3 minutes

 

The Jamul Indian Village Development Corporation (“JIVDC”), an entity owned by Jamul Indian Village of California, is pleased to announce that Jamul Casino has made numerous key hires as part of its rebranding and relaunch.  Approximately 20 miles east of Downtown San Diego, Jamul Casino rebranded in May, and celebrated a relaunch in August.  Completing its transition, JIVDC has welcomed several key managers to the Jamul Casino team, who will continue to support the Casino’s growth and help shape a new brand identity for casino guests.

Jamul Casino hired new President and General Manager, Mary Cheeks, to lead the transition.  Ms. Cheeks has 30 years of experience in casino management and casino finance.  One of her career highlights includes her pivotal role in transforming Harrah’s Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey into a resort that became one of the most profitable gaming establishments in Atlantic City.  Prior to joining the Jamul Casino team, she was General Manager for Rivers Casino & Resort in Schenectady, NY, one of four new casino licenses outside of Tribal Gaming and Racinos.

Ms. Cheeks has recruited a world-class management team at Jamul Casino, optimizing the skills of existing team members and supplementing with additional talent.  Most of the managers have decades of experience working for some of the nation’s top gaming organizations and resorts.  Jamul Casino’s Executive Management team includes:

  • Allison Owen, Vice President of Human Resources
  • Josh Ford, Vice President of Business Intelligence
  • Raman Natarajan, Vice President of Food & Beverage
  • Scott Bauer, Vice President of Marketing
  • Tony Ventura, Vice President of Gaming Operations
  • Cathy Behnen, Chief Financial Officer

Erica M. Pinto, Chairwoman of Jamul Indian Village Development Corporation, states, “As the newest casino in San Diego County, we have created a new standard for entertainment.  We took our time and hand-picked each member of the management team because our customers deserve only the very best in the industry.”

As part of its relaunch, Jamul Casino has developed a new logo and identity focused on being friendly, fun, and true to its roots. The word “Jamul” means “Sweetwater.” Using this as inspiration, the new logo features a single drop merged with the letter J to create a memorable and meaningful symbol for the casino and Jamul Indian Village of California.

The official relaunch of the newly renamed Jamul Casino was marked with a block party celebration on Saturday, August 4, 2018.  The event drew over 12,000 guests and produced some of the highest activity ever on the gaming floor and in its seven (7) restaurants.  The gaming floor has 1,700 slots with everything from penny slots all the way up to $100 slot machines, and 40 table games with over a dozen different types of live games.

Jamul Casino’s diverse dining and entertainment venues have also been making a splash with several awards following the rebranding.  On August 26, the San Diego Union-Tribune announced its 2018 San Diego’s Best Readers’ Poll awards, including Best Entertainment Venue awarded to JIVE Lounge, and Best Sports Bar awarded to Tony Gwynn’s Sports Pub.  In June, Prime Cut’s wine list was honored with the Wine Spectator 2018 Award of Excellence.

President and General Manager, Mary Cheeks, states, “With this outstanding team in place, Jamul Casino will build on its already strong relationships with its guests and employees, and continue to provide a high-quality gaming, dining, and entertainment experience, just minutes from the heart of San Diego.”

Ideally located, Jamul Casino is the closest casino to Downtown San Diego, the region’s cultural, historical, and tourism core.  San Diego County has an extremely active gaming community, home to nine (9) casinos.  According to the National Indian Gaming Commission, tribal casinos generated nearly $9 billion in revenue in California and Northern Nevada (which doesn’t include Las Vegas) in fiscal year 2017, which is a 7.3 percent increase in revenue over the previous year.

FeedConstruct revolutionizes live scouting with AJNAReading Time: 2 minutes

 

 The data feed solutions provider of BetConstruct presented a more refined and accurate solution for data scouting.

 

Contemplating the ways of providing sporting data in a faster and more efficient manner, the company developed a feed solution enhanced with AI/ML called AJNA which was unveiled at Sportel Monaco. Translated as a third eye, it is an augmented live video streaming which recognizes gameflow of the sporting events, providing advanced player tracking in live mode and collecting more technical data to create new unique markets to bet on.

“Machine learning penetrates IT sectors and as a forward-looking company, we seek the ways to infuse our solutions with methods of automated data analysis. The concept of our solution bares its roots for Hindu tradition, the third-eye chakra called AJNA specifically. The on-field observation of a scout provides rather accurate data, whereas the augmented streaming reveals insights to the gameflow that a human eye can’t see. With AJNA, we enrich our sports betting offering with additional augmentation and a more statistical data gathered.” – commented our Founder and CEO Vigen Badalyan.

The solution consists of a single or double camera setup. As they deliver the streaming, AJNA solution does an auto field geometry detection from the video. Within a few minutes, the powerful eye of FeedConstruct identifies field scheme and corners having video frames transformed and sent to the tracking system one by one. Right after, players and ball detection comes into force. AJNA does a custom clusterization on sequences of images for each detected player in order to classify them to a team or referee group. During the match, AJNA recognizes full gameflow including events like ball possession, danger and many more. It also offers an extended personal tracking like player’s speed or distance run per game. Such collected statistics can be converted into a number of exciting markets to bet on.

As for now, FeedConstruct has developed AJNA to provide a full live on-field coverage of football with a further intention to expand the coverage for more sports types.

 

FeedConstruct is a digital content provider offering real-time data feed solutions perfectly tailored to capture and entertain any audience. Among our solutions is

Friendship platform, an exclusive offer for federations and sports content providers allowing them to deliver streamings from events to 300+ betting operators to purchase. FeedConstruct’s Live Scouts’ reporting combines fast and secure communications to provide accurate and reliable information. Based on our scouts’ reporting, we also provide highly efficient Odds Feed service. For a wide variety of sports data we have Statistics service. To perfectly engage any audience, we provide Live Sports Video Streaming service.

Sportradar releases official response to Independent Review of Integrity in Tennis

Sportradar releases official response to Independent Review of Integrity in TennisReading Time: 3 minutes

 

Sportradar, the world’s leading provider of data, content and integrity solutions, has published its response to the Independent Review of Integrity in Tennis report, released in April this year, which proposed recommendations for addressing the sport’s integrity issues.

 

Within the response, Sportradar has supported the majority of the Panel’s recommendations but outlined concerns in relation to the recommendation regarding the discontinuance of data sales, stating that this approach would not only fail in practice but would cause further risk to the integrity of the game, with potentially irreversible consequences.

Sportradar Managing Director Group Operations, David Lampitt explained the factors outlined within the company’s response.

“Attempting a total data black-out on a sport has never been done, or even trialed or tested before. Counter evidence and expert analysis indicate that such an approach is likely to have a harmful effect on integrity, which would be hard to reverse if unsuccessful.

“So, the Panel is staking its reputation, and that of the sport, on an uncertain ‘guess’, when there is good evidence that a different approach and an incremental process of implementing enhanced and targeted measures would be more likely to deliver successful outcomes and integrity benefits.

“If the recommendations remain unchanged, they would push the betting market underground where the integrity issues would be out of sight. This may give the veneer of improving the situation but would not deal with the underlying issues. These must not be brushed under the carpet.

“It’s important to point out that the relative risk that the Review attributes to the different levels of tennis is also misleading. In 2017, and consistently over the last four years, ITF tennis has, in fact, had the lowest risk of corruption across all the levels of the professional game, including the Grand Slams.

“Of course, integrity risks exist across all levels. But they are most prevalent at the mid-level of the Men’s game, so the rationale for applying the most draconian measures to the ITF Men’s and Women’scompetitions and recommending relatively modest changes at the other levels doesn’t tally with the evidence.

“Ultimately our interests, like the Panel’s and other stakeholders involved, including the tennis governing bodies as well as the betting companies, are focused on safeguarding a clean sport. We want to be transparent about our submissions as we believe the evidence is important to ensure decisions are not taken that may have unintended and harmful consequences for the sport.”

Sportradar’s recommendations outlined within the response to the Review include:

  1. Implement a proactive tennis-wide approach to restricting data distribution, targeting specific matches with an elevated risk of corrupt activity based on a consistent and analysis-led evaluation. This is something that Sportradar is doing as part of their integrity partnership with the ITF
  2. Create a new body made up of representatives from tennis, betting operators and sports data companies to ensure a more concerted and collective approach to fighting corruption in tennis across related operational areas that should include the application of the above targeted data restrictions
  3. Increase AV streaming coverage, where possible, to help provide reliable evidence
  4. Create new regulations to enable quicker sanctioning based on betting data and expert player analysis
  5. Bring in targeted measures to deal with online abuse of players, especially at lower levels, enabling players to escalate concerns
  6. Use technology to target risks, streamline processes, maximise impact and enhance intelligence-led enforcement action

The Independent Review of Integrity in Tennis was released on 25 April this year after the tennis international governing bodies, the ATP, the WTA, the ITF and the Grand Slam Board appointed an Independent Review Panel to address betting related and other integrity issues facing the sport in early 2016.
