GVC Launches the GVC FoundationReading Time: 2 minutes

 

GVC, the global sports-betting and gaming group, today announces that it is launching The GVC Foundation (“the Foundation”), which will coordinate and support GVC’s CSR initiatives, objectives and donations around the world.

The Foundation will initially focus on the following areas:

  • Responsible gambling, sports integrity and gambling regulation research, education and treatment;
  • Grass roots, women’s and disability sport;
  • Men’s health, with a particular focus on mental health; and
  • Projects with a clear link to the local community in GVC’s major office locations.

The Foundation will also administer GVC’s existing CSR projects, including GVC’s £2 million community fund as well as GVC’s collaborations with SportsAid, EPIC Risk Management, Gordon Moody, the US National Council on Problem Gambling and the Division on Addiction of Cambridge Health Alliance, a Harvard Medical School teaching hospital.

More specifically, The Foundation is today announcing its involvement in the following CSR projects:

  • Inter Milan Football Club – promoting participation in women’s football
    The GVC Foundation has launched a collaboration with Inter Milan Football Club to promote participation in women’s football in Italy. Backed by a national media campaign, partnered with  Gazzetta dello Sport, the project is developing a football-related talent show for aspiring female footballers.
  • US Fund to Support Research on Sports Wagering
    The Foundation has become a Bronze Donor to the Fund to Support Research on Sports Wagering, which was recently launched by the US National Center for Responsible Gaming. The objective of this project, which is first of its kind in the US, is to competitively award researchers at top tier institutions with the resources needed to uncover novel insights into what the introduction of legalised, regulated sports betting means for public health.
  • German Sports Integrity Forum
    Together with German Bundesliga clubs Borussia Dortmund and 1.FC Koeln, and the sports integrity platform, the Play Fair Code, the GVC Foundation recently launched the German Sports Integrity Forum. The aim of the Forum is to raise further awareness of sports integrity programmes in Germany and other German speaking countries.
  • Professional Players Federation
    The Foundation has entered into a partnership with the Professional Players Federation (the “PPF”), the national organisation for the professional player associations in the UK, to fund its anti-match-fixing player education programmes. The partnership enables the PPF to support the development and delivery of online learning and face-to-face education to hundreds of sportspeople in sports such as football, cricket, rugby union, golf, darts and snooker

Further details of all of the above projects can be found on the Foundation’s website https://gvcglobalfoundation.com/ and other new initiatives, in particular in the US and Germany, will be announced in due course.

Commenting on the launch, Virginia McDowell, Chair of GVC’s CSR Committee said:

“GVC is determined to spearhead the gambling industry’s approach to CSR initiatives, particularly with regard to responsible gambling and sports integrity-related projects. The launch of The GVC Foundation is a clear sign of this commitment, consolidating GVC’s hard work in this area over the last few years.”

Martin Lycka, GVC’s Director of Regulatory Affairs and a Trustee of The GVC Foundation, added:

“We are delighted to have partnered with sports clubs, gambling researchers and athletes in a number of our key jurisdictions, including Germany, the UK, Italy and the US. The range of the new initiatives that we are announcing today, and the quality of the partnerships that we have entered, is a great endorsement of our overall CSR strategy, and there is plenty more to come.”

Local Authorities in Bratislava Introduce New Restrictions on GamblingReading Time: < 1 minute

 

Local authorities in Bratislava have introduced new restrictions on gambling in the Slovak capital. Changes to the National Gambling Act which came into force earlier this year have allowed municipalities to take action against the dangerous vice.

As per the latest restrictions, gambling halls can no longer operate within 200 meters of schools or other educational facilities, institutions servicing children and youth and treatment centres for non-substance addictions.

Bingo, board games, gambling machines, video game terminals, technical equipment operated directly by players, or other technical equipment used for gambling will be completely banned from use on certain dates – most notably during national holidays.

Currently, a petition for a complete ban on gambling in Bratislava is underway and it has already gathered over 100,000 signatures. In September, Matúš Vallo, mayor of the Slovak capital announced the creation of a new working group that will be communicating with citizens and civil association and trying to answer their concerns.

BTG Launches its Millionaire Mystery Box SlotReading Time: < 1 minute

 

Big Time Gaming has launched its Millionaire Mystery Box slot exclusively with the Gaming Innovation Group’s Rizk.com online casino.

This 5-reel game has 243 different ways to win with mystery boxes thrown in. Inside the mystery boxes, you’ll discover any possible symbol, including special symbols such as the wild and scatter. Hitting the scatters will transport you into the hot seat, where you can win up to 24 free spins and a multiplier of up to 50× for the chance to win big money.

“Who Wants to Be Millionaire the TV show lends itself well to slot adaption because it already contains gambling elements coupled with the chance to win dizzying amounts of money. We retained the core elements that made Millionaire Megaways a hit, but we’ve added rich new features and a fun element of surprise. We know Rizk players are already loving it, but what would you expect from the thought leaders of modern slot development,” Nick Robinson, BTG’s CEO said.

“I’m delighted by the launch of Big Time Gaming’s newest blockbuster, Millionaire Mystery Box, exclusively on Rizk. The game has been a big hit with our players and, because it’s a household name and has excellent artwork and mechanics, it has provided some excellent marketing content. We want to extend a big thank you to Nik and all the team at BTG for coming up with another smash hit,” Ross Parkhill, Managing Director at GiG said.
