Tags: Online Gambling Slot Machines Microgaming The Microgaming distribution is different compared to the other established games suppliers in that they have three old games that have significant presence – Immortal Romance, Thunderstruck 2 and Mega Moolah.The other games with significant share are newer game releases. Microgaming has one of the largest portfolios of games available in the market, however as you can see the majority of content share is spread over a couple of dozen games. How reliant are suppliers on a few established titles? iGaming Tracker’s Ken Muir digs into the data to find out 30th May 2018 | By Stephen Carter iGaming Tracker – how it works iGaming Tracker tracks hundreds of casino sites worldwide every day. From this data it can ascertain which games are on which sites and where they are positioned on the pages. It can also measure the market share of casino games suppliers by percentage of “real estate” on casino sites at any given date.For more information visit www.igamingtracker.com or email [email protected] articles: iGaming Tracker: ‘logged in’ vs. ‘not logged in’ content iGaming Tracker: churn and the life of a casino game iGaming Tracker: challenger games suppliers Casino & games Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Email Address Topics: Casino & games Marketing & affiliates Strategy Tech & innovation Slots AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Slots such as Starburst and Rainbow Riches are still omnipresent across casino sites worldwide many years after launch. So what does this tell us about the reliance of the big developers on a few ‘golden oldie’ titles and how does this vary across the different markets? iGaming Tracker’s Ken Muir digs into the data to find outEstablished suppliers have large portfolios of games, often numbering over 300. They launch at least one major game every month, each one usually prominent on casino homepages for several weeks then fading in popularity if not into complete obscurity (for more on this see our December article on ‘the churn and life of a casino game’)Occasionally though some games will ‘stick’ on casino homepages and retain their popularity and presence on sites worldwide.This article will look at some of the big suppliers’ content share on these sites to understand the degree to which they rely on a small number of well-established games. To be clear, the analysis will only include content present on casino pages over time, and does not quantify the traffic to those sites or revenue. However, from this content share, it’s fair to assume that the revenue generated from these games broadly correlates. NetEnt The table below shows the total content mix of NetEnt’s games across 262 sites from 1 March to 14 May 2018. We have just taken into account the site’s main pages and top 30 positions on these.During that period, we tracked over 150 NetEnt games on those sites’ main pages. However you can see the share of content is dominated by a few major titles. In fact, 35% of the total content share is spread across just five games; Starburst, Gonzo’s Quest, Asgardian Stones, Hotline and Twin Spin.Starburst alone accounts for 13% of NetEnt’s total content share.This is not surprising. What is perhaps more remarkable is the mix of newly launched games and old games. On the table, the darker the shade of green, the newer the game is.As you can see, many of the new games have a large content share. Given the amount of resource now needed to produce and market a new game launch, this is understandable. However, most of the big games are still the ‘golden oldies’. And this pattern is not unique to NetEnt. Summing up The visualisations illustrate the reliance by games suppliers on a relatively small amount of slot titles. In the main these popular titles are well entrenched. Whilst new game releases do have an initial impact, they tend to fade after a few weeks.There is also difference game mix across regions. It seems that regulated markets with less competition for game content on sites will have a smaller offering of game titles and will have less game releases than more competitive and open markets such as the UK and Sweden. Different regions also boast a different share of particular games.We looked at SG Digital content in the UK and New Jersey. As you can see, Rainbow Riches has a large share in the UK market whereas it is not present in New Jersey. Conversely 88 Fortunes is the most prominent game in New Jersey, but several games have greater prominence in the UK.The UK chart has many more games present and a different mix of games; the New Jersey distribution has relatively few new games. As it’s a regulated and ring-fenced market, there seems to be less reliance on new game releases. Playtech Most of Playtech’s games content is present on the ‘exclusive’ pages they have with big operators. This may explain why Playtech’s content share is much more evenly distributed across many more titles than their peers.The mix of old and new games is much more varied and it seems they are getting decent coverage from many relatively new game titles. This analysis includes titles from Quickspin and Eyecon, companies acquired by Playtech in recent years. SG Digital SG Digital comprises the brands Bally, Williams, Barcrest, Shuffle, Red7 and now NextGen branded games. Their No 1 game, Rainbow Riches, accounts for 7% of their content share on the main casino pages.Their share is more distributed than NetEnt, i.e. it is spread over more games, however similar to NetEnt, the majority of the big games are at least a year old.New games such as King Kong Fury do currently command a sizeable share, but it is likely this will decline over the coming months, quickly being replaced by more new game releases. Play’n Go Play’n Go differs from the other suppliers analysed in that they have a smaller range of games. With a smaller portfolio they rely on a smaller amount of games, but their new games have a proportionately larger impact. This pattern is similar to other up-and-coming games developers such as Yggdrasil and Red Tiger Gaming (for more on this see our recent analysis on “challenger games suppliers”) Regional variations The analysis above looks at sites over several different countries. We drilled down into the supplier data to see if countries had a contrasting mix of established vs. newer releases.The table below compares NetEnt content in a highly regulated market, Italy, with a highly competitive (open) grey market, Sweden.As you can see from the heatmaps (the darker the shade, the newer the title) game distribution is far more even in the regulated market of Italy compared to Sweden. This would suggest that less competitive regions have less reliance on new game content and thus the share of new game releases is smaller. iGaming Tracker: do suppliers rely on a few ‘golden oldie’ titles?
December 15, 2016 at 7:04 pm Mama Mia Wayne December 19, 2016 at 9:47 am Reply June 1, 2017 at 10:26 pm Wow, I can just imagine what the Trumpers said when they found out that in NY Bill Clinton was one of the elector college members who casted a vote for Hillary………LOL, now that is funny! Oh yeah, and I didn’t see any photos of Hillary standing there looking over Bill’s shoulder gazing at his ballot to see if he voted for her, like I saw The Donald do at the polls looking over Melania’s shoulder to see if she voted for him!!! LOL!!! Trump is soooooo insecure! Did he think Melania was going to vote for someone else??? What a clod! Gov. DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom A diversity of opinions expressed by the CouncilThe State of the City AddressMayor Joe Kilsheimer laid out his administration’s accomplishments and vision for the future in a 35-minute, 5,000-word State of the City address Monday morning. He touched on several issues including business in Apopka, municipal government, public safety, city finances, grants, economic development, The City Center, The Highland Manor, growth, education, and even the environment. The Apopka Voice is taking a comprehensive look at each section of the speech, with the City Commissioners thoughts being the theme for part four.Part Four: The Commissioners weigh-inIn a strong-mayor form of government, the mayor sets the agenda. Typically it is his vision that drives a city into the future, but in Apopka the strong-mayor form of government comes with four partners in decision making – the city commissioners. Partners might be one description, checks and balances might be another.With that in mind it is important to know the thoughts and opinions of the Apopka City Commissioners as it relates to the State of the City address. The Apopka Voice talked to all four of them, and their opinions were diverse.Bankson: “I will always be a voice for moving forward in a fiscally sound way that creates a sustainable future for us all.”Commissioner Doug Bankson was encouraged by the forward movement and potential of Apopka.“I’m excited about the future opportunities we have here in Apopka,” he said. “We are at the perfect time in our history to see many positive changes while keeping and building on our heritage and hometown feel. The economic opportunities to bring needed jobs will be a tide that raises all ships through both personal income and revenue to the local economy. I’m very excited about the fire department bringing to Apopka the Firefighters Challenge national competition. Our firefighters did so well winning nationally, and it was their idea to “bring it home” which will give us another way to show how great Apopka is. All in all there is a synergy growing that has unlimited potential if we move forward together. Uniting our community organizations, HOA’s, schools, and churches and working together to serve the citizens of Apopka is the key to success.Commissioner Kyle Becker was also optimistic of Apopka’s future, but stressed the need for improvement and growth in leadership.Becker: “It is incumbent upon us as leaders to ensure we improve and grow stronger every day.”“Like many Apopka residents, I had work commitments that prevented my attendance for the address, but was very pleased to see the Mayor deliver this type of message to the residents of Apopka. I think a State of the City address is critical to ensure residents of our city are aware of progress, and where focus is needed for future action. I agree with the Mayor’s message that the state of our city is strong, but it is incumbent upon us as leaders to ensure we improve and grow stronger every day.”Dean: “I thought he did a good job, but I was hoping to hear something I didn’t already know.”Vice Mayor and Commissioner Billie Dean gave Kilsheimer high marks for delivery, but hoped for new ideas in the speech.“I thought it was presented well. He did his homework, and I don’t want to sound negative, but he didn’t bring out anything new in his speech. Everything he said we already knew. There was nothing exciting. We’ve been talking about the splash pad for months, and the (Florida) hospital was done before he took office. So I thought he did a good job, but I was hoping to hear something I didn’t already know.”Velazquez: “I’m excited and profoundly optimistic in the direction the city is heading in.”Commissioner Diane Velazquez was perhaps the most excited about Kilsheimer’s address. She noted the inclusive nature of the message, as well a focus on public safety, growth and jobs.“In Monday’s State of the City address, the mayor highlighted the accomplishments completed in the last two years of his administration, and he also addressed the future developments the city will undertake as it continues to grow and prosper. The mayor gave credit to the city council and the city staff for their hard work in helping and keeping the city’s interest as their main priority. The message was clear and to the point, but most importantly, I believe it was inclusive delivering a wide range of subjects that our residents, business people, and visitors are all interested and concerned with. It’s my belief that the visioning study was instrumental in helping the city’s administration decide on how to prioritize the direction and what route the city administration will take as it continues to consider and undertakes the needs of our community. Monday’s address emphasized public safety, growth, and jobs – three very important concerns the community cares about. I think it was clear that these subjects are and will be paramount now and in the future.Tomorrow: Education, Economy and a final analysis of the State of the City address.

Reply Please enter your name here Mama Mia Here is what is weird to me about today, the day the electoral college members cast their votes as to who they vote for President of the United States………the electoral members votes will be gathered up and sent to Washington and will not be revealed until Jan. 6, 2017. Isn’t that amazing? Yet, on election night they announced the winner on tv before all the votes were even counted from around the entire nation! They even announced who was leading which may have influenced other people’s votes in other states behind in the different time zones….! The actual vote tally was not accurately known for weeks in some states……yet now, that it is the electoral college members turn, we are kept in the dark until Jan. 6, 2017! This whole system is so strange! What, it takes about 18 days or so to count 538 votes????? Mama Mia You have entered an incorrect email address!

I am a lot more optimistic regarding the COA’s future, than our nation’s future, and that is for sure! However, whatever policies Trump and his administration dictate will ultimately greatly affect state and local government also. This Russian hacking is very serious, not just campaign e-mails hacked, but also, it is now revealed, the Pentagon was hacked, even before the election! And with a President-elect that is purring like a happy kitten with Putin’s every action, it is frightening! I question every single day why the President-elect is given top secret info BEFORE he is even sworn in? This is not right! This is before the electoral college has even decided if he is going to be President……and what if they don’t choose him with their votes???? Is he going to spill the beans of the top secrets of our nation, to his buddy, Putin, in revenge ??????

The original target was £3.5 million.From May 2017 the British Red Cross will provide personalised support for up to 12,500 people experiencing loneliness or social isolation. New teams of dedicated community connectors and support at home staff and volunteers will deliver new services in 39 locations in all four nations of the UK.A study by the Co-op and the British Red Cross has revealed “epidemic levels” of loneliness and social isolation in the UK, with over nine million people feeling always or often lonely. It identified areas around the UK that need support and what that support would look like.The research also found that more than 80% of people agree that there are small actions people can take in their everyday lives to tackle loneliness. As a result the Red Cross is now asking people to put words into action by giving a couple of hours a week to tackle this major issue affecting people across the UK. Around 500 volunteers from across the country are needed to support the new services and they will spend time helping each person reconnect with their community, with a commitment of as little as two hours a week. https://twitter.com/redfoxcountry1/status/816359654796075009 149 total views, 1 views today Co-op raises £5.5m in 18 months for British Red Cross’ loneliness campaign AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis16 Tagged with: British Red Cross charity of the year corporate Research / statistics About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

WhatsApp Three factors driving Donegal housing market – Robinson Pinterest GAA decision not sitting well with Donegal – Mick McGrath By News Highland – January 23, 2015 Google+ The Western Development Commission has published figures today showing that in 2013, under 15% of all employees in Donegal were in jobs assisted by IDA Ireland, Enterprise Ireland or Udaras na Gaeltachta.Nationally there were ten counties with lower shares.The report on Assisted Employment shows some growth between 2010 and 2013, but the number of people in assisted employment in 2013 was still more than 1,800 below the 2005 figure.In 2013, almost 7,900 people were working in assisted jobs in county Donegal. This was just under 15% of total employment, the third lowest share in the region and below the national average.Almost 14% of assisted jobs were temporary/part-time, second highest share among western counties, but this was down from 2005 when 21.7% of all assisted jobs in the county were temporary/part-time, double the national average in that year.The Western Development Commission survey shows assisted employment in Donegal declined by almost 25% between its highest and lowest years, 2005 and 2010. There has been some recovery since, and between 2010 and 2013, Donegal showed growth of 4.4%.Pauline White is a Policy Analyst with the Western Development, and she’s been assessing the figures.She says one thing which is becoming evident is the high dependence in the west and north west on foreign investment, particularly in manufacturing.She says the government needs to look at how best to support and promote indigenous industry…….Audio Playerhttp://www.highlandradio.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/paulinewdc.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.

Every performance has to be live in the first instance whether it is before an audience or in a studio.”Representing the singers, ISRA issued a legal notice to Dharma claiming infringement of copyright in respect of their performer rights in the songs ‘Ae Ji O Ji’ from the film ‘Ram Lakhan’, ‘Choli Ke Peeche Kya Hai’ from ‘Khalnayak’ and ‘Saajan ji Ghar Aaye’ from ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’.Performers’ rights were first introduced in the Copyright (Amendment) Act, 2012 by amending Section 38 and introducing Section 38A and 38B to the Copyright Act. The association has claimed that ‘Gunjan Saxena’ commercially utilizes three performances of its singer members which were originally part of earlier cinematograph films.The association prayed that as per the scheme arrived at, the tariff for the performers’ rights was fixed, therefore, Dharma was bound to deposit the said amount before the Court pending final decision.Single Judge bench of Justice Mukta Gupta, hearing the matter relied on the decision of the court in the case of Neha Bhasin Vs. Anand Raj Anand & Another 2006 (32) PTC 779 (Del.), while deferring its order on deposit. It had been held therein that “while the definition of “performer” in Section 2 (qq) of the Copyright Act, 1957 includes within its sweep a singer, section 2(q) defines “performance”, in relation to performer’s right, to mean any visual or acoustic presentation made live by one or more performers. Every performance has to be live in the first instance whether it is before an audience or in a studio. If this performance is recorded and thereafter exploited without the permission of the performer then the performer’s right is infringed. So, as regards performers’ right’s the plaintiff definitely has a serious triable case…..”The court has posted the matter for further hearing on Mar 12, 2021.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order]Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
