BETDAQ Chase Day marks betting exchange’s return to UK racing sponsorship

 

Friday, February 16, 2018BETDAQ has agreed its first UK racing sponsorship since May 2016 after partnering with Kempton Park for BETDAQ Chase Day on Saturday, February 24, 2018.

The six-race, headline sponsorship includes the Grade 2 BETDAQ Adonis Juvenile Hurdle and Grade 3 BETDAQ Handicap Chase, a historic race which serves as a trial for the Cheltenham Festival and the Grand National.

The deal marks the latest stage in BETDAQ’s #ChangingForTheBettor campaign after the firm reduced its commission to a flat-rate 2% for all sports and markets on the platform, which matched in excess of £4bn-worth of bets in 2017.

To celebrate, during the ITV4 televised races on BETDAQ Chase Day, horse number two will wear a gold saddle cloth and earn its groom a bonus £2,000 prize if it goes on to win.

Shane McLaughlin, Director of Exchange, Ladbrokes Coral Group, said: “We are thrilled to sponsor BETDAQ Chase Day at Kempton Park and to be building our sponsorship portfolio with a return to UK racing.

“We have seen a tremendous response to our change to 2% commission across all sports in recent weeks. This partnership gives us another high-profile platform to spread our message and help benefit the betting community – as well as stable staff – with our gold saddle cloth initiative.” 

Tony Langenegger, London region Partnerships Manager for Jockey Club Racecourses, said: “We are delighted to welcome BETDAQ as sponsors at Kempton Park for Chase Day on 24th February.

“We have had a good relationship with BETDAQ over the years and are delighted to see them sponsoring a jump fixture again at Kempton Park. The bonus is a wonderful idea and extremely generous – we look forward to a great day’s racing.”

In addition to BETDAQ Chase Day, the Ladbrokes Coral Group-owned exchange is title sponsor of the Punchestown Champion Hurdle, principal partner of Charlton Athletic Football Club, and includes the Racing Blogger and Tony Cascarino among its ambassadors.

Breaking News: Dutch Senate votes to legalize online gambling

The Netherlands Senate voted today in favor of the country’s long-awaited online gaming legislation, which was approved by the House of Representatives back in 2014.

The new regulatory regime will allow operators to secure online sports betting and casino gaming licenses to serve Dutch consumers, subject to secondary legislation that is yet to be submitted for European Commission approval.

Today, the Dutch Senate voted in favor of legislation to legalize internet-based gambling, clearing the way for foreign and Dutch firms to apply for licenses.

On Monday, the Financieele Dagblad said some 300 companies have expressed interest in running a gambling website in the Netherlands and about 50 are expected to make a formal application for a license when they are up for grabs next year. Tuesday’s vote comes two years after the lower house voted in favor of allowing third parties to legally offer online gambling.

Holland Casino is the Netherlands’ only state-regulated gambling establishment but foreign firms widely flout the ban and continue to target Dutch punters.

The two Christian parties in the ruling coalition voted against the legislation. They claim allowing more companies to offer online betting will lead to more problems with addiction.

Bangladesh bans online gambling websitesReading Time: 1 minute

 

Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) has asked all the internet gateway providers and Telecom department to run an internet safety solution programme to block online gambling websites. BTRC is believed to have received an instruction to effect the same from the country’s government.

The telecom regulator has sent the order to block the websites so that these websites will not be accessible in Bangladesh again.

“It might take few more hours to block all the sites completely as blocking any site is so technical,” said Md Emdadul Hoque, general secretary of Internet Service Provider Association of Bangladesh (ISPAB).

A top official of the BTRC said they have often found complaints from different sides about online gambling and that needs to block for the sake of safe internet.
