first_img Show Comments ▼ NINTENDO reported a 46 per cent fall in quarterly profit, as sales of its ageing DS handheld device tumbled ahead of the launch of a new, 3D-capable model next month.The news came the same day Sony unveiled a rival portable gaming device set to hit the market around the end of the year. Both firms need a new hit product to help them compete against Apple’s iPhone and the growing ranks of rival smartphones.Nintendo, based in Japan’s ancient capital of Kyoto, has also been battling harsh competition from Sony and Microsoft in the home game console market, after both companies launched motion-control accessories last year.Underscoring the tough competition, Nintendo cut its sales forecast for the Wii console to 16m units from 17.5m units for the year to March. It also lowered its DS sales forecast to 22.5m units from 23.5m.October to December operating profit at Nintendo, which competes with Sony and Microsoft was 104.6bn yen (£789m), compared with 192.3bn yen a year ago and versus an analysts’ consensus of 118bn yen.For the year to March, Nintendo left its operating profit forecast at 210bn yen, down from 356.6bn yen the previous year and compared with an analyst consensus of 203.5bn yen.The company revised down its annual profit forecast by a third last September, blaming the strong yen and the fact that it did not have the much-anticipated 3DS ready for the year-end festive shopping season.Nintendo shares ended 0.9 per cent higher ahead of the results announcement. Over the past year, Nintendo shares have lost 12.5 per cent, compared with a 0.7 per cent rise in the Nikkei average.

Eurozone OKs bailout fund

first_img EUROZONE countries have agreed in principle to put aside €500bn (£421m) to set up a permanent bail-out fund, finance ministers said yesterday. The bloc had long planned to replace its current €440bn stability fund with a long-term facility, which expires in 2013, in a bid to settle the ongoing sovereign debt worries throughout the Eurozone.The early-stage agreement between Eurozone finance ministers, who consulted with the rest of the EU member countries, could pave the way for the new scheme to start before 2013. Head of the Eurogroup of finance ministers, Luxembourg Prime Minister Jean-Claude Juncker, said yesterday that struggling countries will be able to borrow the full €500bn if necessary – double the effective €250bn lending limit of the interim fund. He added that the size of the fund, named the European Stability Mechanism, will be reviewed at least every two years. French finance minister Minister Christine Lagarde suggested the interest rates paid by countries using the fund could vary depending on the member state’s financial track record, though she warned that the details are yet to be finalised.The IMF has also agreed in principle to provide cash for the fund.

first_imgSunday 27 February 2011 11:48 pm FIGHTING inflation is a priority for China and the government must ward off threats to social stability stemming from rapid price increases, Premier Wen Jiabao said yesterday.Wen’s comments ahead of China’s annual parliament session from 5 March showed the sensitivity among ruling Communist Party leaders to public grumbling about rising real estate and food prices.That wariness has been amplified by jitters about fallout from the unseating of Middle East rulers.Wen, speaking on an online forum, steered clear of problems in the Middle East, stressing instead that his real fears are homegrown and bound up with economic pressures, especially disquiet about prices, jobs and corruption.“Rapid price rises have affected the public and even social stability,” Wen said. “The Party and government have always made a priority of keeping prices generally stable.”China has ample grain and “abundant” foreign exchange reserves that would help to keep price rises in check, Wen added. But he did not say how the government might use its foreign exchange reserves for that end.Wen also said that maintaining social stability was central to the country’s foreign exchange policy, and required a cautious approach to increasing the value of the yuan.

first_img FA targets gambling cash with ‘fair return’ proposal The English Football Association (FA) has set out proposals to introduce a levy on bets to in order to draw more money from the gambling sector and help fund development of the sport at grassroots level. Martin Glenn, chief executive of the FA, revealed the plans during an interview with the Telegraph, saying that such a move could push funding for the body’s ‘Football Foundation’ initiative past £100m (€112.7m/$128.1m). Glenn said the FA, Premier League and government currently commit £64m to the project, which supports grassroots football initiatives across the country. The FA had expected the sale of Wembley Stadium to boost funds, but after the £600m deal involving American Shahid Khan fell through earlier this month, it is now seeking other sources of income, with gambling seemingly top of the hit list. Gambling has a huge affiliation, with nine out of 20 teams in the Premier League having shirt sponsorship deals in place with gambling firms, while 17 clubs in the second-tier Championship have similar agreements. “There are things definitely worthy of consideration,” Glenn told the newspaper. “France has effectively a tax on gambling. We would call it a fair return on football gambling.” “All those betting companies use our intellectual property to have people lay bets, so why wouldn’t a small percentage of that be put into the thing that made that possible in the first place? We, as football, could approach government and say ‘Have you thought about something like that?” Glenn’s comments are similar to those made by senior executives at some of the major sports leagues in the US in regards to so-called ‘integrity fees’. Since the repeal of PASPA earlier this year, some leagues have been calling for states that legalise sports betting to feature a clause in legislation whereby the leagues would receive a cut of wagering revenue, in return for the gambling companies taking bets on their respective competitions. However, the leagues are yet to convince any state to adopt this approach, with West Virginia recently snubbing NBA, MLB and PGA Tour proposals. Glenn said that the fee operators could face in the UK “doesn’t need to be a big lump sum” but it would be “brilliant” if the FA were able to increase budgets for grassroots football. He said: “We’ve got £64m going into the Football Foundation between the three of us – imagine if it was £80m or £100m. If we could get to that it would be brilliant.” Email Address Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Regions: UK & Ireland Funds would be used to support football’s development at grassroots levelcenter_img Topics: Finance Sports betting AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter 26th October 2018 | By contenteditor Financelast_img read more

first_img Regions: UK & Ireland The UK Gambling Commission has pledged to make online gaming safer and fairer for consumers after unveiling an updated list of rules for operators. Topics: Legal & compliance Email Address AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter The UK Gambling Commission has pledged to make online gaming safer and fairer for consumers after unveiling an updated list of rules for operators.Published following an open consultation, the new regulations require operators to verify customers’ age and identity details faster.Licensed operators must now complete all verification checks before a customer can make a deposit, place a bet – either with their own money or bonus funds – or access free-to-play versions of online games.Previously, consumers could make deposits and place bets for up to 72 hours while the operator carried out age verification checks. However, they could not withdraw funds in this period and the operator was required to return any stake funds if the player was found to be underage.In changing this rule, the Commission said it will help guard against the risk of children gambling online.Meanwhile, the Commission has also made a series of changes to the verification process for withdrawing funds. This comes in response to a CMA report last year that identified a level of dissatisfaction among some consumers about having to provide additional identity information when withdrawing money.Under the new rules, remote licensees are required to, as a minimum, verify the name, address and date of birth of a customer before allowing them to gamble. If any additional information is required the operator should request this as soon as possible after the initial verification.Licensed operators should also inform customers – before they can deposit funds – of the types of identity documents or other information that might be required, the circumstances in which this information may be required, and how it should be supplied.In addition, the Commission said operators must take reasonable steps to ensure information on their customers’ identities remains accurate.The regulator said the changes will help operators better prevent harm or detect criminal activity, as they will have more information about their customers, and also help licensees identify players that are trying to gamble while self-excluded.Gambling Commission chief executive Neil McArthur said: “These changes will protect children and the vulnerable from gambling-related harm, and reduce the risk of crime linked to gambling. They will also make gambling fairer by helping consumers collect their winnings without unnecessary delay.’’Jeremy Wright, Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, in the UK, also backed the changes, saying they add an extra layer of protection for children and young people who attempt to gamble online.Wright added: “By extending strong age verification rules to free-to-play games we are creating a much safer online environment for children, helping to shut down a possible gateway to gambling-related harm.”The updated rules will come into effect on May 7, whilst the Commission will also launch a consultation on plans to make explicit its expectations about how to interact with a customer who may be experiencing gambling-related harm.The Commission has made a number of announcements in recent months in relation to making gambling fairer safer for consumers in the UK. Earlier this month, the regulator launched an investigation into the use of non-disclosure agreements in operators’ settlements with customers after claiming they could breach licence conditions.This year, the Commission will also launch a new strategy covering 12 priority actions, ranging from consulting a culture of evaluation to piloting intervention.Image: Santeri Viinamäki Gambling Commission publishes new igaming rules Tags: Online Gambling 8th February 2019 | By contenteditor Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Legal & compliancelast_img read more

We therefore committed to conduct further work in this area.”Reacting to the launch of the consultation, the Remote Gambling Association told iGamingBusiness.com: “Over the coming weeks the RGA will work closely with the Gambling Commission to gather the information and evidence needed.“We support proposals that payment providers should offer their customers the ability to ask for gambling transactions to be blocked on their accounts, some banks already offer this and credit card payments could be included in that option.”Charity GambleAware, which has this week launched a new Safer Gambling Campaign, reiterated its call for a ban on credit usage in gambling.“We have been calling for a ban on the use of credit cards online for some time now,” said Marc Etches, chief executive of GambleAware.“Gambling on the basis of credit increases the risk that consumers will gamble with more money than they can afford. The risk is further elevated by the fact that there are no statutory limits to stakes and prizes online as there are for other forms of gambling in Britain.”“We have been calling for a ban on the use of credit cards online for some time now. Gambling on the basis of credit increases the risk that consumers will gamble with more money than they can afford. The risk is further elevated by the fact that there are no statutory limits to stakes and prizes online as there are for other forms of gambling in Britain.Meanwhile, the Commission has also instigated a call for evidence for gambling businesses to outline how they will meet the challenges set out in the government’s Review of Gaming Machines and Social Responsibility Measures over the protections for players using Category B gaming machines.The Commission said data indicates that the risks associated with Category B1 and B3 machines are broadly similar to the risks with B2 machines at a £100 maximum stake – with the Commission last year advising the government that it wants to explore further player protection options. Those options include tracking play, using time and monetary limits and alerts, and communicating messages about gambling safely.Paul Hope, an executive director at the Gambling Commission, said: “We are exploring measures that could help reduce the risk of harm to consumers who use their credit cards to gamble online, and to those who play on all Category B machines.“We want consumers, gambling firms and other interested parties to have their say and provide evidence that will help us make gambling safer.” 21st February 2019 | By contenteditor Finance giants vow to join responsible gambling push Email Address Finance Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterlast_img read more
