Gambling Firms Push Via Sports Broadcasts, by Greg Tingle - 2nd April 2011
punters, casino and gambling millionaires and billionaires, sports nuts, politicians,
legal eagles, one and all. Australia remains red hot territory for gambling news.
We've got Aussie sports media commentators plugging gambling, the pro club gambling
campaign driving forward, NRL sports betting probe developments with a link to
Tasmanian "devils" and Aussie pokies manufacture Aristocrat making a

Companies Push Via TV Broadcasts And News Media...
giants have the big push on via promoting sports
betting with a volatile and quite effective array of sweet deals with clubs,
sporting codes, television stations and a big spread of traditional and new media
commentators are at the front line with frequent betting odds updates, and mid-match
updates are a field day, if you will. It's all part of the strategy in place with
bookies and big name gambling operators.

awful problems with gambling, but the reality is that it's getting bigger and

Media and Racing King John Singleton Drives Forward Pro Pokies Ad Push...
"Singo" Singleton, who happens to love a punt himself, in the man
and the brains behind the $20 million advertising campaign by the Aussie clubs
against the Julia Gillard government's slot machine reforms.
Gillard government is hell bent so it seems to implement the "problem gambling"
reforms to retain whatever support might remain from Tasmanian "devil"
(satire) "independent" Andrew Wilkie.
ad firm Banjo has developed a media and public relations campaign to focus on
recreational gamblers' fears of having any government 'Big Brother' spying on
their betting habits. Yep, we kid you not. Australia's are being spied on, and
pokie palaces may turn into one of the ultimate evil "eyes in the sky",
that may end up making Google Earth and Google Maps look like child's play.
Banjo deal for a cool $20 mil, running for 2 years, started with online video
and newspaper adverts. It will then pick up even more stream via radio, television,
billboards and even pub coasters. Australian newspapers have already been giving
the news story strong mileage and its taking on a life of its own, with most gamblers
hating what they hear of government 'Big Brother'.
clubs is dead against a mandatory scheme for players to register before playing
poker machines, using so called smartcards (not so smart say European trials)
and self-selected gambling limits (which can be manipulated).
leak said "Clubs Australia said that gambling revenue will drop considerably
as recreational gamblers get pissed with the government and clubs, and will take
more to online gambling "like a duck to water". This is right on the
money and cards. The 'Big Brother' approach is a false solution - actually, its
no solution. It's a smokescreen and spin. The public are not that stupid, they
are actually quite smart, and Labor has underestimated Australians intelligence
once again. No wonder Labor lost the NSW state election".
and a consortium of investors, including the investment banker Mark Carnegie,
the retail king Gerry Harvey and ex Qantas chief executive Geoff Dixon, have purchased
high-profile Sydney pubs including Kinselas, the Bellevue Hotel and Peakhurst
Inn. Singleton also jointly owns the Hotel Steyne in Manly.
had a strong association with the Labor government under Bob Hawke during the
'80s and early '90s, but last year developed ads attacking Labor on health during
the election campaign, and earlier joined the mega push against the mining tax
with a campaign for a Perth client, tipped to be Andrew "Twiggy" Forrest.
government's belated decision to perform a cost benefit analysis on mandatory
pre-commitment is back to front,'' a spokesman for Clubs
sort of analysis should have been done before the government announced it was
introducing the technology.
that had been done then almost certainly the Prime Minister would never have been
conned by Andrew Wilkie into making a commitment that will devastate the club
Families Minister, Jenny Macklin, said ''The government's position is clear and
has not changed.''
Seek Woman Punter Re NRL Cowboys - Bulldogs Betting Scandal...
have released CCTV images of yet another punter they want to speak to about an
alleged NRL betting scam. The images were captured at a Browns Bay betting outlet
in Auckland, New
Zealand, between 4.50pm and 5.15pm on August 20 last year - the day before
the game between the Bulldogs and North Queensland Cowboys, police advised. The
woman was described as being aged in her 20s, with a slim build, shoulder-length
hair and of Caucasian appearance. She was wearing a dark-coloured zippered hooded
jacket, blue jeans and carrying a red handbag and was seen pushing a young boy
in a pram, police said. She returned to the betting facility about 5.35pm on August
21. Police said in a statement that they were not alleging she had done anything
illegal, but said investigators wanted to find out who she was so they could speak
to her. Player agent Sam Ayoub and ex-player John Elias have been charged in direct
relation to the betting inquiry, while now ex-Bulldogs prop Ryan Tandy has been
charged with four counts of giving false or misleading evidence to a NSW Crime
Commission hearing. Among the charges Tandy faces is one of giving false evidence
about having placed a bet on a game between the Bulldogs and Gold Coast, also
last year. The charges against Ayoub and Elias followed an unusual plunge on a
betting option that the first points of that game would come from a penalty goal.
Tandy was penalised two minutes into the game for impeding Cowboys playmaker Grant
Rovelli in front of the posts. The Cowboys were awarded a penalty, but took a
tap kick instead of kicking for goal. Tandy, 29, pleaded not guilty to all charges
during his appearance in Sydney's Downing Centre Local Court on March 3. Meanwhile,
St George Illawarra can finally get down to concentrating on their 2011 following
Wayne Bennett's decision to leave the club at the end of the season. The coach's
announcement has removed the largest cloud hanging over the Dragons' premiership
defence, with the constant innuendo and rumour having played a part in the side's
sluggish start to the year. While the issue won't be fully resolved until Bennett
reveals where he will coach next season, back-rower Ben Creagh said news of the
coach's impending departure would at least focus the players' efforts on getting
the most out of the time he had left. While the appointment of Bennett's right-hand
man, Steve Price, and the retention of much of the same squad for 2012 should
ensure a smooth transition to the new era, the Dragons' best chance to win another
premiership in the near future would surely be while Bennett is the man.
Boss Hits The Jackpot...
Odell, chief exec of Aussie pokie manufacturer Aristocrat,
has hit the jackpot on an 'one armed bandit', if you follow the lingo. Odell snatched
24% jump in total pay to $2.5 million last year, despite Aristocrat putting out
another very average result. The chief executive's base pay in the period increased
19% to $1.25 million. Aristocrat's normalised profit after tax dropped 53% in
2010. One of the resolutions at the upcoming June AGM in Sydney to be voted on
by shareholders is a grant to Odell of 1.02 million performance share rights as
part of his long-term incentive package. The rights, which would be granted over
a 3-year period, are performance based. If Aristocrat happens to outperform the
ASX 100 by more than 10% cent each year, Odell will snatch 30% of the shares.
He will get 70% of the shares if he hits certain earnings targets. Will he meet
his targets and hit the Gold Mega Jackpot? Stay tuned to find out. Aristocrat
is also currently working on a number of b2b deal with online casino operators
which are also tipped to return a healthy jackpot to the company, as well as hours
of fun for online gamblers.
