NetEnt became one of the first game developers to feel the heat from the Advertising Standards Authority in the UK in April. This saw the watchdog deploy avatars mimicking the browsing behaviour of children as part of its ongoing crackdown on minors being exposed to gambling ads.Rightlander’s Sims believes this is a vital area for stakeholders to navigate if they are to affiliate marketing partners comply with regulations across various markets Casino & games About First Look Games First Look Games establishes a link between game developers and affiliates, providing game information and content about latest releases and full game libraries before anybody else. First Look Games enables affiliate readers to download Affiliate Packs – full of game assets and information – for a variety of the games featured here to enhance reviews and to build content. Coupled with NetEnt’s recent foray into the affiliate space and Cherry AB’s ownership of Yggdrasil, Cherry, ComeOn and Game Lounge, you now have companies working as developers, operators and affiliates, potentially unbalancing the established ecosystem. This, in turn, could see developers prioritise internal affiliate assets over third parties.ComeOn Connect head of affiliates Katy Stafford says that developers are already slow to provide affiliates with product information. She argues that new tools that act as a central source for game assets such as video content, such as First Look Games, will enable affiliates to create “really amazing” game pages.“At the end of the day, that’s what we are selling [the games] so if we can ensure that affiliates are properly equipped and players are educated then that can only be a good thing,” Stafford adds. iGamingBusiness.com has partnered with innovative marketing platform First Look Games as it looks to provide greater exposure for games developers in an intensely competitive market. Tom Galanis introduces the new cooperation with an exploration of the role of the affiliate in game release cycles iGamingBusiness.com has partnered with innovative marketing platform First Look Games as it looks to provide greater exposure for games developers in an intensely competitive market. Tom Galanis, co-founder of First Look Games, introduces the new cooperation with an exploration of the role of the affiliate in game release cyclesThe slots market is becoming increasingly competitive and crowded. With hundreds of studios regularly releasing games, it is increasingly difficult for stakeholders to ensure news of launches reaches its audience, and to optimise the collective efforts and investment that go in to this process. Information gap Recently a select group of affiliates, including Catena Media’s Askgamblers.com, has sought to charge game developers for reviewing their content, in addition to any commercial arrangement in place with the operator which receives the outbound click. For Chris Taylor of UK-facing casino portal Online-Slot.co.uk, tried-and-tested methods are the order of the day when it comes to deciding which provider’s games to promote. However, he adds, other factors such as high volatility can be key drivers of traffic for many review sites. Affiliates play a vital role in the launch marketing of new slots, yet we actually hear very little from them about what works, what doesn’t work, and what their expectations are when it comes to marketing these games effectively. A successful casino affiliate recognises what captivates players in a slot game and it is this captivation that drives repeat play and for them – as much as for operators and game developers – incremental earning potential. “When it comes to slots, the releases from the big providers such as Playtech, Net Entertainment and Play‘n GO get more exposure due to players recognising their previous work,” Taylor explains. “On the other hand, if a slot is high variance, looks great or is branded, it will be prioritised and pushed accordingly. Cutting through the noise of game launches: Affiliate focus A game’s success hinges on multiple elements coming together. In the age of tightening margins, it is no easy feat ensuring that each and every stakeholder is not only equipped to take the necessary steps, but is sufficiently incentivised to do so. Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Affiliate managers are another stakeholder often omitted from game launch communications, siloed away from casino management briefings. This explains the frustration felt by many game developers who hold no commercial or communicative ties to affiliates.Silly mistakes Kevin Reid, CCO at 1×2 Network, says that this sort of poor stakeholder communication leads to silly mistakes being made.“I find it baffling how there are still some affiliates, in spite of the excellent lengths they go to in order to review our games, subsequently fail to link that game to a casino that’s running it,” he says. “Players are then getting lost at the beginning of the funnel”. Former slots affiliate Ian Sims, now founder of affiliate compliance platform Rightlander, agrees that recognition can be a powerful factor.“I really like games that come from a land-based environment because they already have a following, and my marketing was aimed mainly at experienced players rather than newbies,” Sims says. 24th April 2019 | By contenteditor Tags: Mobile Online Gambling Slot Machines Such mistakes may appear farcical, but there is the spectre of compliance requirements increasingly governing all stakeholders when it comes to slot game marketing. As yet, it is not clear whether a single UK operator or licensed game developer has issued clear guidelines to affiliates regarding use of free-to-play games. This represents a crucial moment for all of the stakeholders involved in the promotion of new games to to ensure clear and effective communication on the matter. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter “I tend to favour highly volatile slots as these tend to become a mission for players to hit the potential big payouts. Slots like Big Time Gaming’s Bonanza, NetEnt’s Dead or Alive and Microgaming’s Immortal Romance have achieved cult status due to the big wins possible so [they] stand the test of time and are regularly played by avid slot players.” He points to the impending age verification guidelines in the Great Britain Gambling Commission’s Licensing Conditions and Codes of Practice, due to come in to force on 7 May, which may well spell trouble for affiliates serving demo play versions of games.“The whole field of regulation regarding the Under 18 appeal is a bit of a minefield with so much open to interpretation,” Sims explains. “The cessation of the supply of free-to-play versions of games from operators will also have an impact but I actually understand why this rule is coming in and can see the logic.” Regions: UK & Ireland Companies: Yggdrasil Topics: Casino & games Marketing & affiliates Slots Email Address

By Alexey AlbuThe writer is a coordinator of the banned Ukrainian Marxist organization Union Borotba (Struggle), who participated in a recent international solidarity delegation to Syria. Albu is a former regional deputy of the Odessa region and survivor of the May 2, 2014, neo-Nazi massacre at the Odessa House of Trade Unions. He is currently living in political exile in Russia and the Lugansk People’s Republic.Workers World contributing editor Greg Butterfield translated the article at the author’s request. Abridged here, it is available in full at RedStarOverDonbass.blogspot.com, Nov. 2.The movement of people adhering to communist views around the world is vast. But the political spectrum within this movement is also vast. The construction of a new, more just society without war, destruction, poverty and exploitation is the dream of hundreds of millions of people around the world. However, views on how to build this new society are all very different.I would like to make my views clear. I support any attempt to make progressive social changes in society, and I support any political, social and government initiative, if the alternative to it serves reaction, regression and rollback to a lower stage of human development. That is why I support the young People’s Republics of Donbass, because their antipode is Ukrainian fascism, which kills innocent people, destroys cities and villages, and arranges massacres as it did in Odessa on May 2, 2014, the horrors of which I experienced myself. …Today, in the struggle against imperialism (a pity that some uninformed people confuse this term, which they often use to mean “imperial” or “imperial ambitions,” and not a phase of the capitalist system), Syria takes the main place. … It was therefore very important for us to establish a relationship with all progressive forces challenging the U.S. as the main center of world imperialism, including the government of the Syrian Arab Republic.It was important for us to see the situation from within the region, the lives of the people in the frontline towns and refugee camps. It was important to meet with senior officials of the government, religious and community leaders in Syria, for me — and for the other comrades from Italy, Morocco, Lebanon, Scotland and Greece who participated in the delegation. …[When we reached Damascus] I had a good impression from our conversation with [President] Bashar al-Assad’s Deputy Hilal al-Hilal, which took place behind closed doors, in a small circle. I said then that Syria and Donbass are two sections of a united front against American hegemony, U.S. imperialism. And now, being back in Donbass, I can’t stop thinking about how we can expand this front, as we help each other to survive in this difficult struggle.It was very interesting to see the work of the Syrian government in the area of basic necessities of the common people — repairing housing destroyed by militants, water, electricity, medical care. Speaking of health care, during our visit to wounded soldiers in the hospital, I saw excellent conditions, which often do not exist in Ukraine or Donbass. Yes, perhaps we were shown one of the best medical facilities. But it is comparable to the best hospitals in Ukraine.During the trip, I realized that the social burden the state carries is huge. This policy is the antithesis of the policy of the new Ukrainian authorities. …It so happens that as a result of my political activities, I’ve met a lot of comrades from Kurdistan, who told me about the struggle of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) for a free, socialist Kurdistan, and how they resisted the troops of the Turkish government on one hand and the U.S. puppet Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) on the other. Of course, I believe the Kurdish liberation movement is progressive, and for me it was very important to learn about the relationship between the Syrian government and the young Kurdish state of Rojava arising in the north.The fact is that we do not always get unbiased information through the lens of the media. Very often the media contrasts Rojava and the Syrian government, saying that Assad bombed peaceful Kurdish villages and violated the agreement granting autonomy to the Kurds. After the trip to Syria, I realized that this is not quite true. The political landscape of the region is extremely difficult. Within the same area there are many different forces and groups that are under the influence of large political centers — united, separated, fighting with each other. …I realized that the Syrian government intends to respect the agreement and give the Syrian Kurds their long-awaited autonomy. This was very important to me. That is, for now the union of progressive forces continues to operate against the Islamists, and inside this union there is no war. I really hope that mutual understanding will continue within the progressive camp. …In September 2013, when we carried out actions against U.S. intervention in the war in Syria, I couldn’t imagine that the United States would soon unleash a civil war in my own country. Today we have a common enemy, and the only solution is a united struggle and mutual aid. If we organize — we will win!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

Yet, as a nation we are still woefully short on ventilators. This is a massive fail.Some people just are not getting it: We’re not on adult summer vacation. Hanging out at the Rose Bowl loop without practicing social distancing is not just irresponsible, it’s idiotic. How hard is it to stay the hell home so we can stop the spread of the virus? It doesn’t matter if you want to believe it or not, the pandemic is happening.Now that’s stupid: Gun stores are essential businesses? Yeah, because you have to go out and get a gun during the pandemic.Apparently common sense is non-essential and has been shut down. Seriously, Newsom should have just shut down the gun stores.Some COVID-19 observations:What will the antivaxxers do after a COVID-19 vaccine is developed? If they have any sense, they will roll up their sleeves like everybody else.Remember when I said there will be a baby boom in nine months? That means in 2033, we will see the rise of the Quaran-teens. I’ll be just about 70, and telling them to stay off my boomer lawn. I didn’t come up with that one, but it’s still a cool observation.You don’t like Trump, so why are you taking the money: Because it’s money, and I’m still not voting for him.Shout out to the County: It took the county 24 days to count the ballots from the March 3 election. It took the state of Florida about 34 days to count the ballots in the Bush-Gore presidential debacle, and Florida had less technology and in some places they counted by hand.More on the count: District 5 Councilman Victor Gordo and Mayor Terry Tornek will meet again in November. Felicia Williams will join Tyron Hampton, Gene Masuda, Steve Madison and the winner in the mayor’s race when they are sworn in in December.That crew, along with John Kennedy, Andy Wilson and the District 5 Councilman will continue to lead the city’s economic post-pandemic recovery. faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyCitizen Service CenterPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena Community News Opinion & Columnists Political Gumbo: Ventilators, the Loop, Common Sense and the County Count Random thoughts on the COVID-19 pandemic and the March 3 election count By ANDRÉ COLEMAN, Managing Editor Published on Wednesday, April 1, 2020 | 1:00 am Top of the News CITY NEWS SERVICE/STAFF REPORT Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Name (required) Mail (required) (not be published) Website Subscribe STAFF REPORT Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

News UpdatesKarnataka HC Staff Dies Of COVID Without Getting RT-PCR Result; High Court Directs Action Against Lab Mustafa Plumber13 May 2021 6:17 AMShare This – xA staff member of the Karnataka High Court died awaiting results of the RT-PCR test results, following which the Karnataka High Court on Thursday reiterated that the state government should direct and ensure that all laboratories make available test results within 24-hours.The Court has directed the State Government to initiate action against the concerned lab for not acting as per the earlier direction to give RTPCR results within 24 hours. Advertisement A division bench of Chief Justice Abhay Oka and Justice Aravind Kumar talked about the plight of a deceased employee of the High Court, who had undertaken a test on May 10 and he died on May 12, till then he was not communicated the test results. The court orally said, “This is an eyeopener. This is how the system is working. The man was not communicated till yesterday night about him being tested positive. Therefore no treatment was given to him.”Advertisement The court had on April 22 directed the state government to instruct all laboratories to make available the test results within 24-hours. It had even asked the state government to consider taking action against those labs which are not following the directions. Today the bench in its order said “The report shows that on May 10, at 11.06.53 hrs swab test was collected by the lab of Sir CV Raman General hospital. The lab received the swab sample after 22 hours. It appears that the sample was tested on May 11 and the result was reported at 13.43 hrs on May 11. The Registry has confirmed that till time of the death the result of the test was not communicated to him”. The patient had died on May 12.Advertisement Advertisement The court opined “There is a direction of this court that test results should be informed to the patient in 24-hours from taking a swab test. We are not taking up the matter only because the person concerned is an employee of this court. We are worried about implementation of the order of this court and the lives of the citizens.” Accordingly it directed “We direct the state government to initiate action against the said lab which is responsible for this lapse and place on record the action taken report on the next date. We direct the state government to issue a direction to all laboratories to follow the directions issued by the court to avoid any such instances”.TagsKarnataka High Court Covid-19 RT-PCR Test Karnataka Government Chief Justice AS Oka Justice Aravind Kumar Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
