Visitors Traveling to Jamaica from Florida and other States To Pretest…

first_imgThe announcement was made by Prime Minister Andrew Holness yesterday, two weeks after the island reopened its airport to allow for international travel. The pre-requisite for entry applies to individuals coming from COVID-19 hot spots, including Florida, New York, Arizona, and Texas. The Government says it had not moved to impose the requirement for all US visitors due to issues with widespread availability of the polymerise chain reaction (PCR) test, among other considerations. Visitors must upload their test results to the Visit Jamaica portal. At the same time, Holness urged individuals to reconsider travelling at this time if they have been confirmed with COVID-19. The prime minister said, while approval for entry is subject to pretesting, negative results do not mean automatic approval as permission to enter is still risk-based. Visitors traveling to Jamaica from Florida and other states in the United States will be required to pretest before arrival on the island as of July 1. “Persons registering to visit Jamaica coming from these areas, as of July 1, will be required to upload a valid PCR test [result], which must [not have] been more than seven days old from the expected date of their arrival… As of July 10, persons visiting Jamaica [non-residents] from the declared high-risk areas will be required to present their PCR test,” he stated. The four states combined have recorded more than 700,000 COVID-19 cases and are among Jamaica’s most important source markets in the United States. Holness said, however, that other states may be added to the list. All arriving passengers will still be subjected to health screening and risk-based assessment at ports of entry. He said the controlled re-entry programme that was implemented between June 1 and 15, and the controlled entry programmed from June 15 to 30, had been generally successful.last_img read more

Bookmakers to deliver 325,000-strong petition of support

first_img Submit StumbleUpon Share William Hill pursues HMRC FOBTs rebate  May 20, 2020 GVC submits claim for HMRC FOBTs rebate May 21, 2020 Share BGC appoints Joff Cooke as first COO June 2, 2020 Related Articles A petition signed by more than 325,000 betting shop staff and customers from across the country will be presented to 10 Downing Street at 11am this morning as the beleaguered betting industry fights back against its portrayal in the media.The petition, collected as part of the recent ‘Back Your Local Bookie’ campaign, calls on the Government to support an industry that employs 43,000 people, serves six million customers and which has been trading on the high street for 55 years.More than 300 betting shops have been forced to shut in the past two years as a result of more regulation and higher taxes.  Customers and staff now fear there could be hundreds more closures if more unnecessary regulation is introduced by the Government.The huge petition will be presented to Number Ten Downing Street by shop staff and industry representatives, ranging from major operators to family-run independent businesses. The instigation of the petition was triggered by the growing scrutiny of regulations around betting, specifically the extension of the Triennial Review into assessing the impact of FOBTs.Vicky Knight, who works for independent bookie JenningsBet and has signed the petition, commented: “The support we’ve had from our customers over the past few weeks for our campaign has been fantastic. They enjoy their local bookie and would be devastated, as would staff, if the Government took draconian action against bookies.“We care about our customers and we are there to help the very small number of customers who get into problems with their gambling.  Bookies cater for millions of people who enjoy over-the-counter betting and gaming machines (FOBTs), if we lose either of these, we are finished. And, without bookies, there will be even more empty shops and fewer reasons for people to come into town.”Malcolm George, Chief Executive of the Association of British Bookmakers, said: “Britain’s betting shops have been open for business on our high streets and in local communities since before The Beatles.“They have a long record of ensuring customers can bet safely and responsibly and it is vital that the work of staff and the voice of our six million customers are not ignored. We hope politicians and the public will visit their local betting shop to see for themselves what a great community they are and talk to the staff and locals who enjoy their flutter at the bookies.”The petition says: “More than 6 million people use betting shops every year. These shops have been part of our community for over 55 years and need support. Hundreds of betting shops have already been forced to close and many more risk closure. I should be able to spend my money as I choose and I choose to support my local bookie. I urge the government not to undermine that freedom or put thousands of jobs at risk through further regulation or tax hikes.”last_img read more

ASA bans animated Coral Interactive ads for under-18s appeal

first_img ASA monitoring sweep marks gambling as the worst underage advertising offender August 26, 2020 Submit Related Articles Share Spotlight delivers Racing Post translated services for Pari-Engineering Russia August 26, 2020 UK gambling adopts toughest online advertising code to protect underage audiences August 27, 2020 Share StumbleUpon The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) has reprimanded Coral Interactive, following a complaint that challenged whether the content of three adverts would have a particular appeal to children.Ads in question were seen on February 20 of this year and related to the Rainbow Riches, Fishin’ Frenzy and Lucky Wizard titles, which feature animated images, including that of a leprechaun, pot of gold, fishes in the ocean and a wizard, across the trio.In its response Coral Interactive, a division of the GVC owned Ladbrokes Coral Group, stated that an extensive review of its site had been conducted, checking all on-site game titles and promotional material, to ensure that they were not in breach of any rules within the CAP Code.A plethora of points were raised in defense of each game, which questioned an appeal to under-18s, emphasised certain aspects that were removed to make an appeal to under-18s less likely, and stressed that they didn’t believe specific facet’s resembled certain characters from both fairy tale stories and animated films.In its assessment the ASA upheld the complaint, before stressing: “The CAP Code stated that gambling ads must not be likely to be of particular appeal to children or young persons, especially by reflecting or being associated with youth culture. Gambling ads could not therefore appeal more strongly to under-18s than they did to over-18s.”Evaluating each of three games individually, it was concluded that the aspects of animation constituted an increased appeal to under-18s as opposed to over-18s, with the ASA adding: “Therefore, because we considered ads (a), (b) and (c) featured animated images that were likely to be of particular appeal to under-18s and were marketing gambling products, we concluded that they breached the CAP Code.”As a result of the ruling, the adverts must not appear again in their current form, whilst Coral Interactive has been told to ensure future gambling ads do not have a particular appeal to the under-18 demographic.Furthermore two issues were raised against betting tipster service Isiris Racing Services, challenging the wording used in the national press ad (Racing Post) that appeared on October 12 last year, specifically whether: the claim “the success rate for Isiris members has been phenomenal, with win bets and/or each way-bets introducing a successful return on over 90% of these bets. That is 50 out of 55 bets” was misleading and could be substantiated; and the claim “all our bets are proofed to the Racing Post before racing as evidence that these claims are 100% genuine” was misleading.Responding Isiris provided a spreadsheet which it claims showed the 55 bets stated in the ad, and contained details of stake, price, result and profit and loss figures, for bets across various sports.It was stressed that the bets would match the proofing emails which would be provided by the Racing Post, who provided information relating to the audit of their proofing system.   Upholding both counts as part of its actions, the ASA stated: “the ad must not appear again in its current form. We told Isiris Racing Services not to claim success rates for their bets, or that their bets were proofed to demonstrate their genuineness, unless they held adequate evidence to substantiate such claims”.last_img read more
