A joint bid by Costain and Skanska has won a place on the shortlist for all four stations, while rivals including Laing O’Rourke, Ferrovial, Lend Lease and Balfour Beatty also appear on the lists. The new stations at Bond Street, Tottenham Court Road, Liverpool Street and Whitechapel will form part of the 118km rail link running through central London from Maidenhead to Abbey Wood. Crossrail said the shortlisted firms will be invited to enter bids, and a final decision on the contractors is expected later this year. The line is expected to open in 2018 – one year later than originally planned in order to shave £1bn of costs from the overall budget. Tuesday 19 April 2011 8:26 pm Tags: NULLlast_img read more

South Dakota senators propose sports betting amendment

first_img South Dakota senators propose sports betting amendment Email Address AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter A group of South Dakota senators and representatives have put forward a new amendment in an effort to legalise sports betting in the US state.Senate Joint Resolution 2 (SJR2) sets out plans to amend the state’s constitution in order to allow its residents to place legal wagers on sports events from inside the city limits of Deadwood.Precise details of the proposed law change were not published, but SJR2 does commit to putting the amendment to South Dakota voters at the state’s next general election.SJR2 also includes language whereby net proceeds from sports betting would devoted to the historic restoration and preservation of Deadwood, located in the far west of the state.Aside from sports betting, the amendment makes reference to other forms of gambling in South Dakota, including lottery and games of chance.SJR2 would allow for the legislature to authorise a state lottery or video games of chance, either separately by the state or jointly with one or more states. However, the legislature would not be able to expand this to to allow for private ownership.Public-spirited organisations such as charities and education bodies would be able to offer games of chance if all net proceeds from such activities were to go to educational, charitable, patriotic, religious, or similar uses.In total, 11 senators are backing the amendment, while 16 representatives are also behind the move.A similar joint resolution, to allow the city of Yankton to establish a venue offering roulette, keno, craps, limited card games, and slot machines, was proposed in January last year. However the motion, which was to raise additional funds for community and economic development in South Dakota, was voted down by lawmakers.Meanwhile lawmakers in the neighbouring state of North Dakota have also launched a push to legalise sports betting. Representative Jason Dockter has filed HB1254 to allow entities to run sports betting for charitable purposes in the state.

This will then be rolled out to its affiliate partners, which can embed the technology with a single line of code.FanDuel’s integration with IGT means that Fresh8 will have launched its services across all major US sports betting platform providers, including Amelco, Kambi, SBTech and SG Digital.Aaron Dugan, head of online marketing at FanDuel, explained that the real time nature of sports betting meant manually-built campaigns are no longer viable, forcing operators to look for new, innovative solutions.“Fresh8 helps us distribute our proposition in real time and at massive distribution scale,” he said. “As soon as a bet is available in our platform, Fresh8 ensures it is also front and centre in every display, affiliate, and social advert we have.”Fresh8 Gaming CEO Andrew Sharland added: “We are delighted FanDuel chose us to help them achieve advertising scale across channels as they expand state-by-state across the US including helping them activate their tier one media company relationships.”FanDuel has enjoyed a successful start to legal sport betting in the US, with the operator among the highest-ranked brands in a number of states. In December, FanDuel was the biggest winner in New Jersey, reporting $9.1m (£7m/€8m) in revenue.Last month, FanDuel also generated $1.32m in revenue in Pennsylvania, second only to rival DraftKings on $1.35m. 30th January 2019 | By contenteditor FanDuel plans US advertising push with Fresh8 Paddy Power Betfair’s US subsidiary FanDuel has enlisted marketing automation platform provider Fresh8 to support its advertising efforts in the US.
