PROPERTY investor and developer Helical Bar successfully raised £29m in a new share placement yesterday.The 10.73m shares sold equate to about ten per cent of the company’s total share capital and the sale is designed to help it fund unspecificed UK real estate opportunities. Helical’s broker JP Morgan Cazenove placed the shares at 270p each in an accelerated bookbuild following an initial announcement in the morning.The price was a slight discount on yesterday’s trading price of about 275p but above Helical’s 261p first-half net asset value on 30 September. An analyst who did not wish to be named said it was heartening to see the placement did not dilute NAV. He remained wary because a similar £28m placement last year was largely used to de-gear its balance sheet rather than seek new investment.

Galaxy Gaming delivers financial growth in Q1 Email Address Topics: Finance Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Galaxy Gaming has reported year-on-year growth across various key financials in the opening quarter of 2018 AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter 17th May 2018 | By contenteditor Tags: Mobile Online Gambling Finance Galaxy Gaming has reported year-on-year growth across various key financials in the opening quarter of 2018. Revenue in the three months to March 31 amounted to $4.4m (€3.7m), up 25% on the corresponding period last year. Excluding the effect of accounting charge, revenue increased 20% year-on-year to $4.2m. Pre-tax income rocketed by 184% year-on-year to $682,000, while net income was also up 231% to $537,000. Galaxy also noted that adjusted earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) jumped by 28% to $1.6m. Todd Cravens, president and chief executive of Galaxy, said: “We maintained revenue growth in the 20% range in Q1 2018; however, the increases in operating expenses that we made last year have moderated in Q1 2018, allowing us to deliver growth in EBITDA that exceeded the growth in revenue, and we expect that trend to continue throughout 2018.” Harry Hagerty, chief financial officer at Galaxy, added: “Revenue as reported for Q1 2018 included $207,000 from our adoption of ASC 606 effective beginning this year. “Cash decreased slightly in the quarter due to our payment in January 2018 of amounts owed to a strategic partner; excluding that payment, cash would have increased 16%. “Interest expense decreased in the quarter due to lower debt balances, and we expect further decreases in 2018 as a result of the refinancing we announced last month. “Finally, our effective tax rate was 21.2%, reflecting the new tax rates enacted late last year.”Related article: Galaxy Gaming hit by losses in 2017

The concept of luck being an entity that can be shared and accumulated is not only untrue, but also dangerous – there is no threshold at which a person’s luck cashes in.Phrases such as this can leave vulnerable players with the belief that a big win is just around the corner.The National Lottery’s famous crossed fingers logo is also now effortlessly incorporated in emoji form into almost every one of its social media posts.But let’s consider this: “Advertisements for lotteries must not exploit cultural beliefs or traditions about gambling or luck (ASA Code for Lottery Marketing.18.8).”Could the National Lottery’s entire brand identity be in breach of a fundamental ASA rule? The suggestion that crossing your fingers can positively influence your luck surely counts as a cultural belief.Innocently, you could argue that the passive use of crossed fingers is harmless as it reflects the randomness of the draw. But, I’m not sure this holds up when you have Camelot staff suggesting players “keep those lucky fingers crossed” in case their luck changes:The National Lottery on Twitter: “I’m sorry to hear that you’ve not had much luck, Chris. You never know when that may change though, keep those fingers crossed! ^Kane… ”Suggesting the inevitability of winning Another common theme is the repeated use of phrases such as “your turn next” and “your turn to win big”, suggesting that winning isn’t as much down to luck, but a matter of simply waiting patiently for your time to come.The only thing close to inevitable in the lottery is that you won’t win the jackpot, not that you will.The most responsible response to those questioning the lottery jackpot’s winnability is to acknowledge how improbable it is and advise players to play only what they can afford without any real expectation.It is certainly not acceptable to blatantly ignore the odds and proliferate the idea that if they only keep spending for long enough, they’ll find success.As players wait diligently wait for their day in the sun, they might begin to doubt whether it will in fact ever be their turn. They turn to Facebook to express their dismay and are presented with messages of encouragement: keep going, keep buying. You’ve got to be in it to win it, after all. A call to arms in the face of adversity.Yet this is a breach of ASA guidelines: “[Advertisements must not] portray participation in a lottery in a context of toughness or link it to resilience or recklessness (ASA Code for Lottery Marketing.18.2.8).”And also: “[Advertisements must not] portray, condone or encourage gambling behaviour that is socially irresponsible or could lead to financial, social or emotional harm (ASA Code for Lottery Marketing. 18.2.1).”Potential for harm Many would dismiss the potential for harm by arguing that the lottery is cheap and infrequent. But even if you were to ignore potential issues surrounding the lottery as a gateway to other forms of gambling, the regular ticket price – combined with the sheer improbability of winning – can cause costs to quickly escalate.There are three core draw-based games that Camelot facilitates: Lotto, EuroMillions and Thunderball, each with different ticket prices and odds attached. The prior two draws also come with “HotPicks” side games.If you were to play each of these five games for one week, buying one entry for every instance, your total weekly spend would be £18. Over the course of a year, it’d rise to £936.But what if you just played Lotto? One line, twice a week, £2 per play. That’s £4 per week and £208 per year.Perhaps that doesn’t sound too bad, until you consider that the odds of winning the Lotto jackpot are 45,057,474 to one. Based on 104 instances of the game per year, you’d have to play a single line, twice a week for 433,245 years for winning to become a statistical certainty.Assuming you could actually live that long, prices didn’t rise and humanity was not extinct, you’d have then spent more than £90 million on tickets – better hope it’s a rollover!Lottery instant win games The National Lottery also provides a variety of fixed odds instant win games – mostly scratchcards – both in shops and online.These games are promoted with odds as low as three to one and range in price from just 25p all the way up to £10. They are what lottery sympathisers, as I call them, often choose to disregard when writing off the game as low cost for good causes.The National Lottery website currently offers a total of 52 instant win games, with 44% of them priced at £3 or more per play – higher than the cost of a single Lotto ticket. And you only have to be 16 to play.Plus, let’s not forget, the National Lottery even allows you to pay for Lotto, Thunderball and EuroMillions draws by direct debit, complete with a continuous unlimited rolling option.Can you imagine what would happen if a casino offered an option to play 10 hands of blackjack per week, paid for in the same way?It’s also important to consider the numbers. According to a Gambling Commission survey from April 2018 entitled “Gambling participation: activities and mode of access”, the top three most popular gambling activities over a four-week period in the UK were National Lottery draws (26.8%), scratchcards (10.4%) and other lotteries (11.1%).In contrast, the proportion of respondents in the same period who had played “online slot machine style/instant win” games was just 1.1%, with the total figure across all forms of online gambling and betting standing at 23.7%.Excluding the National Lottery from the wider industry conversation about responsible gambling is like choosing not to include the Queen in a discussion about the Royal Family’s cost to the taxpayer.Phil Blackwell is acquisition operations manager at Lindar and responsible for the growth of affiliate site OnlineBingo.co.uk and proprietary bingo platform MrQ.com.

RoBeDeRo/iStock(NEW YORK) — The fate of the giant character balloons in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is still up in the air.New York Police Department Chief Rodney Harrison said Tuesday that the decision on whether or not to fly the balloons will be a “game day decision.”Possible high wind gusts have been a cause of concern and could potentially cause the rare event of not flying the giant balloons, a staple of the famous parade.Wind speed devices will be used to determine which balloons can soar at what height. Each of the 16 giant character balloons has a risk profile depending on the size and weight.Harrison noted that because people from all around the world come to New York City for the parade, “safety is paramount.”He added that he’d like to make sure the show can go on in some form despite wind in the forecast.A Macy’s spokesperson said in a statement Monday that it was “too early to make any determinations regarding the flight of the Parade’s giant balloons.” However, the spokesperson said “the parade takes place rain or shine.”‘We have a number of weather operations in place, which include continuous monitoring of conditions on site by a licensed meteorologist, who is also in direct communication with the National Weather Service,” the spokesperson said.Based on the city’s guidelines, the giant character balloons will not operate when there are sustained wind conditions exceeding 23 mph and wind gusts exceeding 34 mph on the route, according to the spokesperson.Wind gusts could climb to over 35 mph in the Northeast Wednesday night and Thursday morning, as a storm moves across the country.The giant balloons have been grounded only once before, in 1971, due to extreme wind conditions.
