first_img Golden Race’s virtual sports products get Swedish certification June 18, 2020 StumbleUpon Martin Wachter, Golden RaceAn event that has been described as the “gateway to Africa’s gaming market” was always likely to attract interest from expansion-seeking virtual betting provider Golden Race.CEO Martin Wachter made the trip to the Kampala Serena Hotel in Uganda for the Sports Betting East Africa Summit from 10-11 April, alongside salesman Christoff Sattler, and partner and client for Uganda Shamir Hirani.The event was focused on trends, challenges and opportunities that exist in the growing African market due to variable cultures and the sheer size of the continent.The two-day agenda also saw gaming experts embrace a growing level of transparency within the African sports betting market, examine the impact of the Lotteries and Gaming Act in Uganda, and discuss the rise of mobile as a game changer for the sports betting business in the region.Wachter commented: “The Sports Betting East Africa is an important show for us – I love returning to Africa – we have so many great customers and friends here, and every time we see new retail locations springing up with our range of products. We have a number of products tailor-made for this continent and its unique challenges and infrastructure, and it is very pleasing to see all our hard work pay off for our customers here.”The CEO has also expressed his interest in the African market profile panel at Betting on Football 2017 (3-5 May), which will touch on how the industry is dealing with increased digitalisation of the customer and whether African bookmakers can follow SportPesa’s lead to compete with both Asian-based and UK bookmakers for a share of the football marketing real estate.He added: “There are a few market profile sessions at Betting on Football which catch my eye this year – the ones regarding the potential of Spain & LatAm, the exploding African market and football betting, and the Asian market place in the industry – Golden Race have strong growth in all those areas, so are particularly interesting to me.” Related Articles Share Share The industry wakes up to virtual sports potential June 26, 2020 Submit Golden Race gains ISO certification May 29, 2020last_img read more

Better Shades of Grey aims to shine flattering light on WSUV

first_imgWhen Google searching “50 Shades of Grey” and “WSU Vancouver,” the last thing you expect to read about is an art gallery. The best-selling “Grey” series of bawdy novels features a fictional student at the very real branch campus of Washington State University.But Avantika Bawa, a professor of fine arts at WSU Vancouver, is doing her best to ensure an art gallery is what Google will turn up. The gallery show is titled “Better Shades of Grey,” to redefine what people notice when looking into WSU Vancouver, and to bring more attention to the campus’s fine arts minor.o What: “Better Shades of Grey” student art showo When: 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday now through Dec. 5o Where: Science and Engineering Building Gallery, WSU Vancouver, 14204 N.E. Salmon Creek Ave.o Cost: Free admission. Paid parking at meters or for $3 in the Blue Daily Pay Lot.“It’s unfortunate that’s how people first hear about the school, as opposed to the art and research and students here,” said Bawa.Bawa, who has been teaching at the school for three years, chose the title based on a suggestion from a student and a vote from her class. “It’s all about marketing, and making the most of what you have,” she said. “We are using it to present ourselves, not some fiction writer.”The “Better Shades of Grey” gallery aims to reclaim WSU Vancouver’s identity.The gallery, on the first and second floors of the Science and Engineering building at the campus, features work ranging from simple paint on canvas to tree branches and bones, all in gray scale.last_img read more
