Following the recommendations of a review report of the Joint Select Committee on Gambling Reforms, the Xenophon Bill was not passed.In 2019, the Federal Government took a similar stance when it decided not to regulate video games and loot boxes because the Federal Government felt that there was not sufficient research into any gambling-related harm and that it could not develop a regulatory approach in the absence of such research.Although we cannot determine the outcome of the current Bill, the Federal Government has a number of urgent and pressing matters to address. Furthermore, the position taken in respect of this issue previously indicates that the Federal Government is likely to adopt a similar approach again.However, nothing relating to gambling-related issues can be predicted with certainty. The government’s position may be influenced by the recent report issued by the UK’s House of Lords Select Committee on the Social and Economic Impact of the Gambling Industry, which recommended changes to the regulation of games of chance and that loot boxes should be regulated as a game of chance.Covid-19 has been challenging for the gambling industry globally and the situation has also been difficult in Australia, however, there are now some signs of a recovery and a return towards normal operations.Jamie Nettleton is a partner at Addisons and head of its Gambling Law Group. He is the past President of the International Masters of Gaming Law (IMGL) and a senior fellow of the University of Melbourne, lecturing in gambling law. Samuel Gauci is a solicitor admitted in Malta with a background in gambling law. His experience stems from roles with the Maltese regulator, the Malta Gaming Authority (MGA), and in private practice with a leading law firm in Malta and more recently with Addisons. Jamie Nettleton and Samuel Gauci of Addisons take a look at how the gambling sector in Australia has been affected by Covid-19 and outline how the industry is reopening for business Regions: Oceania Australia The post-pandemic outlook Down Under Topics: Casino & games Legal & compliance Sports betting Strategy Social gaming 28th July 2020 | By Joanne Christie Jamie Nettleton and Samuel Gauci of Addisons take a look at how the gambling sector in Australia has been affected by Covid-19 and outline how the industry is reopening for business.This year has seen countries around the world considering how best to address the challenges posed by the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) and how to reduce the effect the pandemic has on their national economies.Australia’s gambling operators, both online and land-based, have not been immune to these challenges and have had to adapt to changing trading conditions and be creative in adopting new measures that permit them to reopen their businesses.The land-based market was directly affected by the health measures introduced to limit the spread of the virus. Casinos and other gambling venues where poker machines are available (clubs and pubs) had to close their doors towards the end of March to comply with government restrictions.This measure inevitably had a large negative impact on these businesses and their employees, with a substantial number of employees being stood down.The only land-based gambling product that remained available in Australia was lotteries, as tickets can be purchased from newsagents and these were permitted to remain open.The Australian-licensed online sports bookmakers were also negatively affected. The suspension or cancellation of almost all sporting events, with only limited racing events continuing to be provided, caused these bookmakers to be materially affected.This saw the industry providing novel gambling products and focusing on sporting events that were not key events prior to Covid-19, such as table tennis, the Moldovan football league and esports.Ultimately, Covid-19 generally had a material adverse effect on the Australian licensed gambling market and the industry will take a number of years to recover from this pandemic and return to pre-Covid-19 operations. This effect has been exacerbated by the more recent lockdown in Victoria, which has led to all gambling venues to remaining closed.Rise in illegal online gambling As is the case is many other jurisdictions, in Australia many residents are attracted to the offerings of illegal online gambling providers, which are continuously finding innovative techniques to attract customers and make their services available.Gambling is a form of entertainment and, especially during the self-isolation and lockdown periods brought about by Covid-19, many people turned to online gambling. Customers are not always aware that operators providing online casino games or sports betting services may not be legal in Australia and are therefore unaware of the risks associated with playing with illegal online gambling operators.Data from AlphaBeta showed that there was a significant increase in online gambling by Australians during the period from March to July 2020. Considering Australian licensed sportsbooks were limited in the services that they could provide, it would appear that this increase occurred as a result of more people playing on illegal websites.Furthermore, a Sydney Morning Herald report based on SEMrush data claimed that there was an increase in the number of online searches for terms such as “online pokies”, “online casino Australia real money”, and “Australian online casino reviews”, which suggests that an increasing number of Australians were playing on illegal online gambling sites.The Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA), which is responsible for the enforcement of the Interactive Gambling Act 2001 (IGA) – the Federal law regulating the provision of online gambling in Australia – has increased its monitoring activities in respect of illegal websites and the use of its enforcement tools during this period.A key enforcement tool ACMA began adopting from November 2019 is the blocking of illegal online gambling websites by internet service providers. ISP blocking is just one of the measures and powers available to the ACMA under the IGA, however, it appears to be one of the most timely and effective.In May ACMA reported that it had blocked 35 illegal gambling websites since it commenced using the ISP blocking measure.Gradual reopening Up to the beginning of July, there had been a gradual reopening of gambling operations in Australia. In the land-based sector, thanks to the effective handling of the pandemic, casinos have started to open their doors again in most Australian states and territories, as have clubs and pubs that host poker machines.New South Wales was the first state to permit these outlets to reopen and switch on their poker machines, with other states and territories following suit. The only exception is Victoria where, unfortunately, there has been a recent increase in Covid-19 cases and plans to reopen land-based gambling services have been further postponed.Venues must comply with the social distancing requirements of the state or territory where they are located, therefore many venues are operating at reduced capacity. Measures adopted include a reduction in the number of people who are permitted in gambling areas, providing more space between poker machines and/or keeping a number of poker machines switched off.Some regulators have permitted gambling venues to increase their approved gambling areas to allow them to have more poker machines operational and also remain compliant with health and social distancing requirements.In the licensed online sports betting sector, operations are returning to normal with the restarting of sporting competitions both in Australia and internationally.However, there has been quite a change in the timetables of competitions from what was originally planned for 2020. This will require operators to dedicate more resources to efficiently providing odds on sporting events in the shortened period the leagues and seasons have to be completed, as is the case with the AFL (Australian Football League) and the NRL (National Rugby League).Social casino under fire again On 10 June 2020, a Private Member’s Bill, the Interactive Gambling Amendment (Banning Social Casinos and Other Measures) Bill 2020 (the Bill), was tabled by Andrew Wilkie MP in the Australian Federal Parliament. This Bill proposes amendments to the IGA and seeks to ban online social casino games.The Bill was presented as a result of the trends that have emerged during Covid-19. As explained in the explanatory memorandum that accompanies the Bill, there has been an increase in online gambling in Australia and also an increase in people playing online social casino games.It is contended in the explanatory memorandum that online social casino games are particularly problematic because they attract new gamblers, including children.The Bill defines an online social casino game service as comprising the following elements: Tags: Online Gambling Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Email Address

Peter Stephens | Monday, 30th March, 2020 | More on: ^FTSE Image source: Getty Images. The FTSE 100’s recent market crash may not seem to be a buying opportunity at the present time. After all, news flow regarding coronavirus may, sadly, worsen before it improves.However, the index’s valuation suggests that investors are factoring-in the negative economic impact of a lockdown. This could mean there are excellent buying opportunities. How so? Due to low valuations that have not been seen since the last bear market.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…As such, now could be the right time to buy a diverse range of stocks. Do so and you could benefit from a likely recovery in the FTSE 100’s price level over the coming years.Near-term outlookBuying FTSE 100 shares could lead to paper losses in the short run, of course. News regarding the number of coronavirus cases in the UK and around the world may continue to be downbeat. And it may even get worse before it improves. As such, investor sentiment is likely to be changeable, with share prices having the potential to come under severe pressure at times in the coming months.Previous bear markets have shown similar trends. Even if fiscal and monetary policy stimulus is enacted, it can take time for confidence among investors to improve. Therefore, buying shares today may not return a quick profit. As such, adopting a long-term viewpoint could be crucial.Long-term prospectsOver the long run, a recovery in the FTSE 100’s price level appears to be very likely. It last encountered a bear market of this nature over a decade ago during the financial crisis. Back then, a recovery seemed to be in severe doubt for a prolonged period of time. However, the index did ultimately move higher, and even went on to record new highs in the years following its crash.The same outcome cannot be guaranteed, but is very likely. The FTSE 100 has been able to overcome a wide range of crises and bear markets in its past to post strong gains in the following years. Investors who have been able to overcome the short-term risks facing the index have generally posted strong returns in the years following bear markets. Buying shares now could provide you with the opportunity to do likewise.A logical approachBuying a wide range of shares and not seeking to find the very bottom of the current bear market could be a sound strategy. Diversification reduces risk. This could be very important due to coronavirus being likely to negatively impact some industries more than others.Similarly, buying gradually throughout the current bear market could be a worthwhile move. The FTSE 100’s potential to move lower in the short run may mean there are even more attractive price levels ahead. As such, identifying high-quality stocks at low prices and gradually investing in them over the coming weeks and months may lead to high returns in the long run.

Is now the time to be buying crashing shares at cheap prices? Buying crashing shares today at cheap prices may not necessarily produce high returns in the short run. There are a number of ongoing risks, such as a challenging economic outlook and the coronavirus pandemic. They, and other threats, could lead to a further market crash over the coming months.However, over the long run, the stock market’s growth potential could make now the right time to purchase a diverse range of shares. They could benefit from a likely return to a sustained economic boom and improving investor sentiment that lifts valuations across a wide range of sectors.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Risks facing crashing shares in the short runCrashing shares may already be cheap after their falls in 2020. They may trade at prices that are substantially below their historic averages. However, if investor sentiment weakens in response to challenging economic data or political uncertainty, it could cause many companies to record falls in their share prices.Therefore, it is important to accept the potential for paper losses on investments made today over the coming months. The stock market crash from earlier this year showed that predicting market downturns is almost impossible. Therefore, there is always the prospect of share prices falling over a short period should a deteriorating economic outlook cause investor sentiment to decline.Long-term potentialBuying crashing shares could produce high returns over the long run. Value investors such as Warren Buffett have a long track record of purchasing high-quality companies when they trade at low prices. Over time, they have often soared in value as investor sentiment has improved and company valuations have more accurately reflected their financial prospects. With many companies appearing to fall into this category at the present time, there seem to be opportunities to capitalise on low valuations in a wide range of sectors.The stock market’s past performance shows that a recovery and sustained bull market is likely to take place following short-term volatility. Of course, this can take a matter of months, or even years. Therefore, it is important for investors to manage their expectations when purchasing shares that have fallen in value. Yes, a recovery may be likely should the company in question have a solid financial position and a wide economic moat. But it can take some time for it to happen.Managing risksIt is also important to manage risks when buying crashing shares. For example, owning a diverse range of stocks within a portfolio can reduce an investor’s reliance on a small number of companies or sectors. It can also mean smoother returns should one industry be less affected by a specific risk or threat compared to others.Furthermore, identifying high-quality businesses that have fallen heavily in price could be a logical strategy. It may enable an investor to buy those stocks that are not only cheap, but that also offer the best value for money on a long-term basis. Over time, they could be among the least risky opportunities. They may also deliver the highest returns within an index over the coming years.

The Senate Commerce Committee has approved the Drought Information Act of 2013. The measure reauthorizes the National Integrated Drought Information System. The system – initially authorized in 2006 – provides vital drought information to farmers, ranchers and other industries affected by drought-related weather conditions. The Senate bill would extend the program for five years and support an improved early warning system of timely and accurate drought information. Senate Commerce Committee Ranking Member John Thune says the National Integrated Drought Information System is a critically important tool that provides agricultural producers with early warning information they need to prepare for drought conditions. He says the financial stress and uncertainty created by droughts make tools like this vital for farmers and ranchers to prepare for drought occurrences. He’s hopeful the legislation will receive consideration on the Senate floor during this session of Congress.

Cllr Kevin SheahanPhoto: Cian Reinhardt“EVERYONE is breaking the speed limit — everyone!”And even Mass-goers are no angels, it was revealed during this month’s meeting of the Adare-Rathkeale Municipal District.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Former Mayor Kevin Sheahan, believes we are now relying on drivers to adhere to the speed limits on Limerick roads. However, the outspoken Fianna Fáil man claimed 85 per cent of people are not doing this.“The speed limit has to be enforced,” Cllr Sheahan told council members after a presentation from the Loughill N69 Health and Safety Committee.Members of the committee told councillors that the current speed limit of 50km/h in Loughill is not being adhered to. They asked that the current speed limit be left in place until a review is carried out with local community consultation. More than 1,300 people signed a petition in the area calling for this action to be carried out.Committee member Michael Hunt described scenes in the village on a Sunday morning at Mass time to those at “the starting line of a Le Mans race”.“It’s not just drivers, it’s church-goers as well,” he added.Cllr Sheahan recalled attending a funeral in Loughill and witnessing a “horror scene waiting to happen”. He also took the view that traffic calming was the way to go rather than increasing speed in the village from 50km/h to 60km/h.“We had unanimous agreement here last month that traffic calming is the way to go and we have asked our engineers to go and carry out a survey. We are waiting for them to come back to us and we will be able to tell you then what they recommend.“I always had a soft spot for Loughill. The last time we were out there for a meeting they had tea and breakfast rolls ready for us. We will look at what changes can be made within the demands of the law,” Cllr Sheahan added.Fine Gael councillor Adam Teskey promised Loughill residents that they would lobby for traffic calming measures on their behalf.Independent councillor Richard O’Donoghue suggested that the roads in the village need to be narrowed at the junctions to reduce speed. He also referred to a video shown to councillors by the Loughill N69 Health and Safety Committee during their presentation.“The scariest part was the behaviour of traffic after Mass time. There is wrongdoing on all sides. The worst image was that of a woman who walked out onto the road with a child while her back was to the traffic,” Cllr O’Donoghue recalled.

This basis of the report is “in-flight” residential mortgage applications in the FEMA designated areas for the Easy, Getty, Kincade, Saddleridghe, and Tick fires. An “in-flight” mortgage application are mortgages due to close between October 24, which is when FEMA initially declared the fire and the end of the year.Redfin previously reported that Los Angeles, Orange, and Santa Clara Counties are at risk of losing more than $2 trillion worth of housing as a result of the fires. Los Angeles County has 1.49 million households valued at $1.2 trillion, with an estimated median home value of $625,000. Orange County has a total housing value of $502.6 billion, with a median home value of $709,800.“Homes in places like Malibu, the hills around Los Angeles and wine country in Northern California have historically been desirable because the natural beauty of the surroundings has outweighed the risk of natural disaster,” said Redfin Chief Economist Daryl Fairweather. “But with homebuyers and sellers in fire-prone parts of California really starting to feel how environmental risk factors are impacting both the safety and value of their homes, long-term demand will change, though California overall is unlikely to lose its luster.
