WagerWire Launches Media Network

WagerWire

WagerWire, a first-of-its-kind marketplace for active sports bets, announced today that it has formally launched it’s media division in tandem with a new Community Page on its website, which will be home to unique insights, viewpoints and written commentaries created by members of its rapidly growing community. The site will also host proprietary tools like its “Bet Value Calculator,” which instantly calculates the fair market value of any bet. The mantra of WagerWire’s Community is to create content “for fans, by fans.” Through a platform built on mutual support between creators, @WagerWire attracted a talented and rapidly expanding base of micro-influencers bringing tens of millions of impressions per month to the brand’s platform. The company’s newly launched Community Page hosts video, audio and written content covering game previews and recaps, hot storylines in sports, wild betting action, and fan pontifications. WagerWire’s live Twitter Spaces shows have a fresh spontaneous quality, with Hall of Fame athletes regularly making surprise pop-ins, such as recent guests Lavar Arrington, Cardale Jones, Ed Latimore, and more. During these audio shows, community members interview athletes and other notable personalities in the sports industry about their careers, and discuss insights and stats, while swapping sports takes and betting picks. WagerWire’s current slate includes “Executive Football Talk” hosted by former NY Jets General Manager Mike Tennenbaum and legendary sports executive David Meltzer, multiple NBA, NHL and MLB shows, as well as the “Mental Health Zone” and “Queen’s Round Table.” The company is also rolling out their Bet Value Calculator tool engineered with their proprietary technology to show users the real market value of their bet, and allowing them to compare these values to the cash out offer from their sportsbook. WagerWire logs this data to chart the pulse of the landscape. They have found users regularly reporting cash out offers in the 50% range of market value, which they feel further demonstrates the need for a free and open marketplace. WagerWire is also leveraging its in-house data team to supercharge content generation by finding narratives within the numbers, turning each bet into a story. The WagerWire community has quickly grown to over 20,000 active participants and become one of the most engaged communities on social media. So far in 2023 their Twitter has garnered 8.5M impressions and 2,100 daily profile visits. Their TikTok videos have captured 500k views and 75k likes in the first two weeks of March alone. “The new movement in social media is all about community,” said WagerWire’s content manager Nick Davis, known as @spoonofzeke on Twitter. “Recent years have isolated sports fans and bettors and sent them to the internet in search of something. What we have found is that users are looking for mutual engagement. We have put a significant amount of time into the community letting them know that we see them, we want to know more about them and we want to elevate their content.” The network is headed up by WagerWire's Co-Founder and Chief Experience Officer (CXO) Travis Geiger. Prior to co-founding WagerWire, Geiger graduated from the UCLA film school and spent more than a decade in Hollywood TV and film production. “The current sports betting media landscape is uninspiring for sports fans and bettors. The status quo is basically a stale sea of so-called experts telling people what to do. WagerWire is disrupting this monotony by injecting some democracy,” Geiger said. “People want to be invited to be a part of something. They want to engage and to be engaged with. They crave an interactive and honest way to connect with the brands with whom they choose to spend their time and money.” Geiger sees a unique opportunity for the company to educate and empower the millions of people who will begin their gambling journey over the next few years as the tidal wave of legalization continues. “When it comes to educating bettors, sportsbooks have an inherent conflict of interest in the eyes of the public -- because they’ve built their empires on losses,” Geiger said. “WagerWire is different. We are proud to have been embraced by sports fans and bettors of all experience levels. We are excited to platform the explosive creativity of our grassroots community across all mediums including our app and newly launched site.” WagerWire first came onto the scene when announcing its seed round in July 2022 from the likes of Miami Marlins co-owner Roger Ehrenberg (IA Sports Ventures and Eberg Capital), Betr & Simplebet founder Joey Levy, and NBA All-Star Richard Jefferson, among others.

Spring Cleaning Your Brain Health

YourUpdateTV

Spring is almost here and it’s time to clear out the cobwebs and rethink and re-energize your health and wellness routines for the rest of the year. And while many people focus on physical health, it’s also important to think about your mental and emotional well-being. Recently, Nutrition Expert, Mia Syn, teamed with The Vitamin Shoppe on a nationwide satellite media tour to help boost your health and wellness going into Spring. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/2NqDH4Uah-A Staying Hydrated Brain health is a critical piece of your overall health that can not only improve your physical health but can also create positive cognitive and emotional impacts that contribute to overall well-being. One thing many people forget about is proper Hydration. Hydration is essential as it assists blood flow and oxygen to the brain, which helps both brain and memory function. Waterdrop is a great way to drink more water and reach your daily hydration goals. Made from natural plant and fruit extracts for flavor, Waterdrop cubes are just dropped into a glass of water and provide you with energy from caffeine, plus essential vitamins and hydration – all without sugar. They come individually wrapped so you can bring them anywhere and just drop into your refillable water bottle! Impact of Stress on the Brain Stress can have many effects on brain health and our overall health, including physical symptoms like headaches and pains, but also things like memory, mood, anxiety levels, and social behaviors. Solaray’s SHARPMIND line of supplements is formulated with clinically studied nutrients, adaptogens and nootropics, to support mental and emotional well-being. The SHARPMIND Mood formula is formulated with holy basil and reishi mushrooms to support stress and mood levels. SHARPMIND Focus has Lion’s Mane mushrooms and Bacopa to support memory and cognitive health. There are also other unique formulas for sleep, energy, and stress, to support different areas of your well-being. Optimizing Physical and Mental Performance Like other parts of your body, your brain needs proper nutrition to perform at its best whether at work, home, or on-the-go. So, whether you want to improve cognitive function, or simply feel healthier and more energetic, we need to make sure our brains are getting what they need. Focus Factor from Synergy CHC contains a clinically-tested and patented combination of neuro-nutrients plus vitamins and minerals. This formula not only helps boost your memory and focus, but it can also replace your everyday multivitamin, making it an excellent 2-for-1 supplement option to help optimize your performance throughout the day. Sleep and Aging Many of us struggle to get the quality sleep we need, and after a night of tossing and turning, we often lack the energy, confidence, and clear thinking we need to accomplish our goals. Somnapure Sleep Gummies from Force Factor can help. Their 100% drug-free, non-habit-forming formula contains a 10 mg dose of melatonin which helps you relax before bed, so you can fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer. And finally, as people age, our physical and mental performance may require more support. But there are ways for us to address these deficits and maintain our edge.

How Technology Is Helping Frontline Workers Get Healthy Food

Blendid

By Faith Ashmore, Benzinga Interested in investing in Blendid’s campaign? Click here to get started! Consumer demand for healthy food options has skyrocketed in recent years; COVID-19 put health on many people's minds and changed consumers’ standards as well as their priorities. A recent study showed that 54% of all consumers care more about the healthfulness of their food in 2020 than they did in 2010. Healthfulness is now the biggest determining factor in purchasing food, even more than taste and price. However, healthy food is not always accessible, especially for frontline workers or individuals who work overnight shifts. While McDonald’s and other fast-food chains of the world operate on a late-night or 24-hour model, you would be hard-pressed to find a health food store that is open late and can serve populations of workers like nurses, truck drivers, and more. For these late-night workers, their only real option is often unhealthy fast-food, and even fast food has become less of an option in the post-pandemic world. COVID-19 and labor shortages have resulted in fewer retailers with 24/7 service. Because of this, more and more previously 24/7 establishments like McDonald’s are closing early and leaving overnight shift workers without any options. Blendid, a robotic and AI-enabled food automation solution company, is creating clever solutions to this problem. The company has seen firsthand the success of a fully autonomous robotic kiosk for smoothies. Their kiosks operate in universities, travel centers, retail stores and hospitals across the country. The kiosks can operate 24/7, which gives consumers access to healthy and affordable food around the clock while the company is able to maintain low operational costs. Blendid’s 24/7 kiosks provide healthy alternatives for workers when they need them most. The company has kiosks at two Love’s Travel Stops in California and a location at Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta, among others. A truck driver who frequents one of the Love’s Travel Stops shared, “That juice-making robot is awesome. I loved watching it. Truck drivers need raw nutrition." The company’s robotic model enables fresh food to be offered where it previously hasn’t been and during all hours of the day, not just traditional daytime working hours. Not to mention, all Blendid locations offer the capability of ordering ahead and customizing ingredients to fit customers’ needs and nutritional wants. The company has seen a 267% revenue increase year-over-year which is unsurprising given the consumer demand for healthy and sustainable food. Not only is the kiosk model contactless, but also being open 24/7 increases the accessibility of healthy food. For college students or late-night workers, who typically have limited access to healthier foods, Blendid is giving people options they didn’t previously have. If projections are to be believed, the food robotics industry is only going to continue to grow. The global market for food robotics was estimated at $2.1 billion in 2022, and the market is projected to reach $4B by 2026. Companies like Blendid will be instrumental in the industry by providing unique experiences and options for consumers on the go. Technology is helping bring healthy and affordable food where people need it most. Blendid is currently hosting a raise to further expand its ingenious concept. The company is currently working on expanding to 10 additional geographies in the near future and has 500+ kiosks in contract. Previously, it raised more than $26 million which translated into significant revenue growth. Blendid could be well-positioned as an industry leader and seems eager to meet the consumer demand for on-the-go 24/7 healthy food. Interested in investing and being a part of their growth story? Click here to read more about Blendid’s raise and how to invest! This article was originally on Benzinga here. Sunnyvale-based Blendid is revolutionizing the future of food service with its proprietary food automation platform (foodOS™), which efficiently and safely prepares and serves a range of healthy, fresh, and delicious food. A pioneer of the future of food service, Blendid's first concept in the market is an autonomous, contactless kiosk that uses robotics, machine vision, artificial intelligence, and healthy ingredients to create delicious smoothies that are customized to meet the unique health and dietary preferences of each consumer. Founded in 2015 by seasoned Silicon Valley entrepreneurs Vipin Jain, Venki Avalur, and Vijay Dodd, Blendid is improving the consumer experience by offering safe, cost-effective, and personalized food on-demand, while also reducing complexities and costs for the operators. Blendid has raised more $20M to date from a mix of venture and crowdfunding investors and is currently raising its Series B investment round.

How to Use Your Cheltenham Free Bet Offers on Day 2 Taking advantage of one of the above-listed Cheltenham Free Bet Offers is just the beginning. Once you have the 20, 30, 60 or whatever of Free Bets in your account you’ll want to use them wisely. Here are some of the best kinds of bets you’ll find related to the Cheltenham Festival. Cheltenham Ante Post Bets The Ante Post Bet is when you place a bet on a Cheltenham race several days in advance of the actual race. The idea is that you are likely to get more favourable odds when you bet on the race that far in advance. Most of the established online bookmakers offer Ante Post betting for all 4 days of the Cheltenham Festival. This is the type of bet, however, that is probably best left to experienced punters. Cheltenham Non-Runner No Bet (NRNB) Bets Those with experience betting on horses will be happy to tell you of the times they bet big on a horse only to watch as it was withdrawn from the race at the last minute. In 9 out of 10 cases, they lost their stake when the horse didn't run. In the other 10% of cases, they had placed a Non-Runner No Bet or NRNB bet. With the NRNB you get your stake back if your horse doesn't leave the gate. A good bet for novices. Cheltenham Money Back Bets Before you place any bets on Day 2 of Cheltenham make sure you peruse the bookmaker's site for any Money Back Bets. This is a special type of bet where your stake is refunded if you don't win but certain other conditions are met. Let's say your horse comes in 2nd to the race favourite or loses by less than a second. In either case, you will have your stake refunded if those were conditions of your Money Back Bet. Cheltenham Enhanced Odds When Cheltenham rolls around the big bookmakers are always anxious to promote as much activity as possible so many of them offer Enhanced Odds on some of the races, including Day 2 races. For instance, a bookmaker may artificially increase the odds on a horse prior to the race but at the same time limit how much can be wagered at the enhanced odds. The result is that if your horse wins you won't get rich, but you'll enjoy a tidy little payday. Cheltenham Best Odds Guaranteed With Best Odds Guaranteed you are assured of getting paid out at the best price even if the odds were not so great at the time you place your bet. For instance, maybe you bet on a horse in the Queen Mother Champion Chase on Day 2/Ladies Day at 4/1 and then closer to post time odds on your horse increase to 6/1. With Best Odds Guaranteed you’ll receive your payout at the better price should your horse win. Cheltenham Trainer Bets You’re not limited to betting on horses at Cheltenham. Most bookmakers will also offer odds on which trainer is likely to win Best Trainer at the Festival. Some consider it easier to cash in on this type of bet because there can be little doubt that some trainers do better at Cheltenham than others over the course of their careers. Just spend a few minutes researching the topic before placing your bet. Cheltenham Festival 2023 Day 2 Offer T&Cs There’s no such thing as a free lunch, as a wise man once said. So of course any type of Free Bet Offer is going to come with certain Terms & Conditions attached to it. Fortunately, the fine print in most cases is not deal-breaking or otherwise out of the ordinary. They (the conditions) are mostly designed to channel Free Bet activity in a certain direction so that both customers and the house benefit. Some T&Cs you can expect to encounter on Free Bets for Cheltenham Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, and Day 4 include: Deposit restrictions: Now that credit cards can no longer be used to finance gambling in the UK most online bookmakers have developed a definite preference for debit cards. As such, most (not all) Cheltenham Free Bet Offers will require you to fund your new account with a debit card. If the bookmaker specifies a debit card and you make your initial deposit with Neteller or PayPal instead you won’t qualify for any Free Bets. In addition, there are bound to be minimum deposit amounts that will usually fall in the 5 - 20 range. Minimum odds: In 99% of cases you will need to place and settle a qualifying bet before any Free Bets are credited to your account. Almost all bookmakers will insist that bets have certain minimum odds attached. The most common minimum odds are 1.5 (1/2). But some bookmakers will twist the screw a little tighter. Make sure you read the fine print regarding minimum odds on your qualifying bet before opening your account. Expiration date: There may be several different expiration dates attached to any given Free Bet Offer whether that offer comes from an established online sportsbook or new bookmakers on Day 2/Ladies Day. For instance, you may have to place a qualifying bet within 7 days of opening your account. Or you may have to use any Free Bets within 7 days of their being issued. Or in the case of Cheltenham, you may have to place your bet in the week before the festival starts. Cheltenham Festival 2023 Day 2 Feature Race The featured race on Day 2/Ladies Day at Cheltenham is the Queen Mother Champion Chase. The race attracts the lion’s share of the action on Cheltenham Festival Betting Sites on Day 2/Ladies Day and is open to horses 5 years and older. It is run on the Cheltenham Old Course over approximately 2 miles and has a total purse of 400,000 with the winner claiming 225,000 of that. Last year Energumene with Paul Towend aboard took home the top prize. Can they repeat?

Casino utan BankID - Bästa Online Casinon utan bank-ID Inträde

AM Europe

Det pratas ofta om funktionen att spela casino med BankID. Än idag finns det casinon där du kan spela utan krav på BankID, även känt casino utan BankID. Som med allt annat i branschen finns det både fördelar och nackdelar att ha i åtanke. Vi ska ta dig igenom vad det innebär att spela casino utan BankID, vad du behöver tänka på och hur du går tillväga. Lista över Casinon utan BankID list of casinos without BankID: Barz Casino Manga Casino Svenbet BetZino Rant Casino PiratePlay NineCasino Vave Casino Vad är BankID? Redan 2001 kom den första versionen av BankID. Tusentals svenskar kunde genom sin dator godkänna både deklarationen och adressändra. I en stadig takt ökade antalet funktioner och du kunde snart sköta ärenden via din bank, något som stoppade flödet till bankkontoren drastiskt. Nästa stora steg blev när mobilt BankID lanserades. Det bidrog bland annat till att betaltjänsten Swish kunde lanseras 2012. Ungefär där och då fick casinoaktörerna upp ögonen för spel med BankID och började spåna på vägar att ta för att introducera verktyget till sina spelare. Numera är BankID ett e-legitmiationssystem som används i full utsträckning både i casinobranschen och i andra sammanhang. Du kan sköta dina ärende på Skatteverket och en rad andra myndigheter och BankID är lika giltigt som mer eller mindre vilken annan legitimation som helst. Casino med Mobilt BankID med Svensk Licens Spelar du på ett casino med svensk licens kommer du stöta på BankID. Det är nämligen ett krav från Spelinspektionen för att ett casino eller ett spelbolag över huvud taget ska tilldelas en svensk licens. Framför allt enar det alla spelsajter under ett och samma system, något som underlättar i säkerhetssyfte. Utvecklingen har dock gjort att vissa spelare inte kommer åt det fina utbud som finns att hämta på den svenska marknaden. Om du av någon anledning inte har BankID eller föredrar att spela på casino utan BankID får du därför söka efter andra alternativ. Lyckligtvis är det inte bara inom det svenska licenssystemet som ett stort säkerhetstänk finns bland spelbolagen. Du hittar casinon utan BankID där du kan spela under trygga och säkra förutsättningar. Casino utan BankID Det finns ett par casinon med svensk licens där du inte behöver använda BankID. Bland annat Momang Casino, Svenska Spels egen casinopärla, ger dig möjligheten att skapa ett konto med Freja eID. Det är fortfarande en e-legitimation som gäller, även om den skiljer sig från användningen av BankID. Om du vill fokusera helt på att spela med mer sedvanlig registrering på casino får du söka dig till casinosajter utan svensk licens. Väl där finns det flera olika licenssystem att välja mellan. Du kan välja marknad och casino utifrån dina egna preferenser och kriterier. Det ska dock sägas att du bör vara något mer noggrann i ditt val då det inte är samma, genomgående höga, kvalité som när du spelar under svensk licens. Du kommer snart upptäcka att casinon utan BankID till stor del påminner om casinon med BankID. Även om registreringsprocessen skiljer sig och metoderna för insättningar och uttag kan se annorlunda ut är mycket sig likt. Ibland kan du till och med finna ett ännu större spelutbud och framför allt en bredare bonusmarknad att ta del av. Farhågor som många spelare har vad gäller casino utan BankID och utan svensk licens är främst kopplade till säkerheten. Utvecklingen på senare år gör att du hittar gott om upplevelser som ger dig den trygghet du behöver för att kunna njut fullt ut av upplevelsen. Skapa ett konto utan BankID Om du har hittat ett casino utan BankID kan du komma igång med att spela snabbt och smidigt. Det finns casinon utan svensk licens på vilka du kan spela utan konto. Då är det dock i regel med BankID som verktyg. Därför får du vänja dig vid att processen för registrering är mer sedvanlig. Du känner säkert igen stegen i att skapa ett konto från tidigare upplevelser. Ofta är det i form av ett formulär via vilket du ska ange personuppgifter, adressuppgifter och välja ett lösenord. Du kan självklart genomföra din registrering via valfri enhet och behöver inte signera med någon form av e-legitimation. När du loggar in i framtiden är det med hjälp av din e-postadress eller ett användarnamn samt ett lösenord som du väljer. Ett tips är att du efter att du har skapat ett konto verifierar din identitet direkt. På så sätt kan du i slutändan göra ett uttag direkt senare under ditt äventyr. Välj ett casino utan BankID Klicka på alternativet för att skapa ett konto Ange dina personuppgifter Ange dina adressuppgifter Fyll i din e-postadress alternativ välj ett användarnamn och lösenord Du har nu skapat ett konto Betalningsmetoder på Casinos På den svenska marknaden ser vi en utveckling där många casinon väljer att kapa antalet betalningsmetoder. Det går tvärtemot hur det ser ut bland casinon utan BankID. Där kan spelarna snarare ta del av fler alternativ för att sköta insättningar och uttag. Du kommer kunna hitta moderna betalningsmetoder via vilka du inte behöver använda BankID för att slutföra en transaktion. Insättningar och uttag med betalkort, e-plånböcker och inte minst kryptovalutor används i hög utsträckning. Du kan räkna med att ha ett tiotal olika betalningsmetoder att välja mellan. Med andra ord kan du spela på casinon utan BankID med välkända betalningsmetoder som du är van vid att använda. Som sig bör går en insättning direkt. Hur lång tid ett uttag tar beror såklart på vilken metod du väljer att använda för ändamålet. Mastercard VISA Neteller Skrill PayPal EcoPayz Banköverföring Zimpler Trustly Kryptovalutor Casino utan BankID insättningar En insättning landar på ditt användarkonto snabbt och säkert. Välj den betalningsmetod som passar din plånbok bäst och sett till vad du har för verktyg att använda. Har du spelat under svensk licens är du medveten om att det finns gränser för insättningar. Det kan finnas även på casinon utan BankID, dock med betydligt högre gränser. Själva insättningen gör du precis som du är van vid. Gå till alternativet för insättningar och välj vilket belopp du vill sätta in. Därefter väljer du din metod i listan över betalningsmetoder. Följ stegen på skärmen för att slutföra transaktionen. Har du en bonus som du vill aktivera gör du det antingen genom att ange en bonuskod eller bara genom att acceptera villkoren för ditt erbjudande. Bonusar och Kampanjer för icke-BankID Det finns som nämnt ett par olika anledningar till att svenska spelare väljer sig att söka till casinon utan BankID. Just behovet av att använda andra typer av legitimering än just BankID är en anledning, det stora utbudet av olika bonuserbjudanden är en annan. Sedan 2019 har det funnits kraftiga begränsningar i vad du kan få som bonus när du spelar under svensk licens. Det är en bonus per spelare och casino som gäller. Även om ett erbjudande brukar vara förmånligt stoppar det dig från att hämta flera förmåner längre fram under ditt äventyr. Spelar du på ett casino utan BankID och svensk licens har du ofta fler bonusar att hämta på samma casino. Det finns inga särskilda begränsningar kring vad du kan hämta i bonusväg på casinon utan BankID. Du har i regel en klassisk välkomstbonus att ta del av. Den aktiverar du antingen automatiskt genom din första insättning eller genom att ange en bonuskod. Därefter finns det, beroende på var du spelar, ett antal olika erbjudanden som du kan hitta. Det gäller att ha ett ansvarsfullt tänk och att inte bara göra insättningar för att kunna hämta en bonus. Kan du spela ansvarsfullt och hantera summorna är det en förmånlig marknad som du vistas på. Välkomstbonus Refillbonus Free spins Cashback bonus Lojalitetsbonus/VIP-bonus Välkomstbonus En välkomstbonus har du på merparten av alla casinon du hittar, oavsett om du spelar med eller utan BankID. Det är ett erbjudande som ger dig utökade möjligheter att utforska och utvärdera den sajt du spelar på. Du aktiverar en välkomstbonus i samband med registrering eller din första insättning. Refillbonus Refillbonusar finns endast om du söker dig utanför det svenska licenssystemet. Som namnet avslöjar är det en bonus som du kan använda för att fylla på din spelkassa ytterligare gånger. En refillbonus kan dyka upp vid andra, tredje och till och med fjärde insättning. Varje casino bestämmer själv hur många bonusar av den här typen en spelare får tillgång till. Free spins Utbudet av free spins blir i regel fler när du spelar casino utan BankID. Du kan mycket väl ta del av gratissnurr redan vid din första insättning, som en del av din välkomstbonus. Därtill kan du vid lanseringen av nya spelautomater eller som en gåva få fler free spins att använda för spel på slots. Cashback bonus Också detta en bonus som till stor del avslöjas av namnet. Med en cashback bonus får du tillbaka hela eller delar av din förlust under en viss tid. Det är inte ovanligt att du varje fredag får tillbaka en viss procentsats och att summan blir en egen bonus. Finns endast på casino utan svensk licens. Lojalitetsbonus/VIP-bonus Som tack för att du är ett casino trogen kan du få bonusar och förmåner med tiden. Casinon utan BankID och utan svensk licens har ofta lojalitetsprogram och VIP-program på sajten. Du samlar poäng genom din aktivitet på ett casino och belönas för det i efterhand. Spelutbud på casino utan BankID Spelar du på ett casino utan BankID är det slots, live casino och andra former av casinospel. På så sätt behöver du inte känna att du går miste om någonting i själva spelupplevelsen. Du kommer hitta en mängd spel som du känner igen från casinon med svensk licens. Även casinon utan BankID har tillgång till alla världen speltillverkare. Det innebär att du hittar speltitlar som du är välbekant med, till exempel Starburst, Gonzo’s Quest och Book of Dead. Samtidigt kommer du kunna hitta mer unika speltitlar som inte har nått den svenska marknaden. Tillsammans med någon av tidigare nämnda bonuserbjudanden som ofta finns att tillgå har du goda möjligheter att utforska utbudet av spel. Du kan på flera håll och kanter även provspela olika slots för att få en uppfattning om vad som väntar innan du satsar riktiga pengar. Slots Live casino Game shows Jackpottspel Uttag på casinon utan BankID Spelare på den svenska marknaden har blivit bortskämda med att uttag på casinon går snabbt och smidigt. Du kan göra ett uttag, verifiera med BankID och få summan på ditt konto på ett par minuter. Spelar du på casinon utan BankID är det allt mer upp till varje casino samt betalningsmetoden du använder. Valet av rätt betalningsmetod kan göra skillnad både på timmar och dagar. Det bästa du kan göra är att verifiera din identitet innan du ber om ett uttag. Eftersom du inte använder BankID gör du det istället på annat sätt, inte sällan genom att skicka in bilder på dokument som styrker att du är du. När dina inskickade uppgifter är verifierade finns det ingenting som hindrar dig från att göra ett uttag. Väljer du däremot att spela på ett casino utan BankID med licens utanför EU, till exempel från Curacao, kommer det med nackdelen att du får skatta på eventuella vinster. Säkerheten för casino utan BankID Säkerhet på ett casino är det som får och bör ha absolut störst fokus. Även om du kan njuta av smidiga betalningsmetoder, många bonuserbjudanden och ett stort spelutbud gäller det att du kan göra det under trygga förutsättningar. Att tumma på kraven kring säkerhet är inget alternativ. Det finns gott om casinon som du kan hitta där BankID inte behövs men där säkerheten trots det är på topp. Du märker snabbt om det är en seriös aktör du har att göra med. Genom att läsa recensioner, betyg och provspela på egen hand kan du avgöra om det är ett casino som du vill göra en insättning på. Bakom kulisserna på ett säkert casino finns det välsvarvade säkerhetssystem som gör att du kan spela med schyssta villkor. Kryptering skyddar dina uppgifter från att hamna i orätta händer och eCOGRA ser till att alla spel avgörs slumpmässigt i den mån det behövs. De Bästa Mobilcasinona utan Bankid Spelar du på casino med BankID i mobilen är det med mobilt BankID till hjälp. Självklart kan du spela på casino i dina mobila enheter genom andra verktyg. Spelar du på ett casino utan BankID kan du fortfarande skapa ett konto samt göra insättningar och uttag direkt i din mobiltelefon. Många betalningsmetoder är, likt casinon, anpassade för spel i mobilen. Det innebär att du sällan behöver ta till andra verktyg för att sluta en transaktion. Du kan med andra ord ta med dig hela användarupplevelsen var du än befinner dig, utan att förlora någonting gällande hur smidigt och praktiskt det är att spela i ett komprimerat format. Även verifieringsprocessen som du tar dig an när du inte spelar casino med BankID är enkel att sköta från mobilen. Ska du skicka in bilder på dokument kan du utan bekymmer ta bilderna via din mobilkamera och bifoga filerna direkt på sajten. Fördelar och nackdelar med Casinoställen utan bank-ID Ett större utbud av betalningsmetoder Fler och mer unika spel Spela utan krav på e-legitimation Spela tryggt och säkert Flera typer av bonuserbjudanden Du kan inte spela med svensk licens Alla casinon har inte samma höga säkerhet Sammanfattning Att det inte skulle vara säkert att spela casino med BankID är en myt som vi kan sätta hål i. Det finns såklart alltid anledning att vara extra vaksam kring var du väljer att spela. Däremot ska du inte låta det stoppa dig från att upptäcka den marknad av casinon som finns där BankID inte är ett vitalt verktyg. Säkerheten baseras istället på hur licensen ser ut och vad varje enskild aktör erbjuder. Numera finns det så pass många recensioner, jämförelsesajter och forum där du kan hitta allting du behöver veta om ett casino. Gör du bara din research riskerar du inte att hamna på en sajt som brister i säkerheten. Fördelarna med att spela casino utan BankID visar sig i antalet betalningsmetoder du kan använda, som ofta är betydligt fler. Spel på casinon utan BankID går hand i hand med att du spelar utan svensk licens. Det innebär att du har ett brett utbud av bonuserbjudanden att sätta tänderna i. Ha som fokus att spela ansvarsfullt. Sätt gränser för summorna du spelar för och för tiden som går åt under tiden. Välj ditt casino med omsorg om du vill bli långvarig på sajten. Det finns en väl fungerande värld bortom casinon med BankID som du kan upptäcka om du föredrar att spela utan e-legitimation. FAQ Vad är casino utan BankID?

OYO USA to Add Over 100 New Hotels to its Portfolio in 2023

OYO

Global travel technology company OYO is planning to add over 100 hotels in the US in 2023. This is nearly double the number of hotels the company added to its portfolio in 2022. This expansion strategy will focus on adding more hotels in the states of Oregon, Washington, Texas, Oklahoma, Georgia and Florida. Texas continues to be the largest and fastest growing market for OYO in the US, while it also has sizable concentration of hotels in Oregon, South and North Carolina, Florida & Georgia. In 2022, the company saw a ~23% increase in new hotels added to its portfolio in the US vs 2021. The company also recently onboarded some marquee properties such as Plaza on the Pike by OYO in Atlantic City, OYO Hotel Renton Bellevue in Seattle, Tulsa Square Hotel by OYO in Tulsa and OYO Hotel Hermiston in downtown Oregon Talking about the expansion plans, Gautam Swaroop, CEO OYO International said, “O ur US operations have seen significant growth in 2022. But 2023, may just be the best year for us. We are taking measures to add hotels in high RevPar leisure markets such as the Pacific Northwest and will also focus on improving our presence along the East Coast. Over 15 hotels have already signed up with us so far in 2023 and we expect to add many more in the coming months.” Nikhil Heda, Head of Business Development, OYO USA added, “We are excited by the response we are seeing in the market. Last year 35% of our new hotels came from recommendations or referrals by our existing hotel owners, indicating a growing trust in OYO’s demand & revenue generation capabilities. We are seeing growing demand coming in from both independent hotels as well as branded properties.” Commenting on their experience of working with OYO, Hiren Govind, owner of OYO Hotel McAllen Airport South said, “We onboarded our first hotel with OYO in 2019 and in the past few years our revenues have grown 2.5 times resulting in higher profits. Along with increased yield, the OYO team has also been of tremendous help in ensuring smooth operations. I look forward to adding a few more properties with OYO and drive similar growth and revenue with them.” OYO offers hotels access to a large base of regular customers through its app and website, and also lists hotels on multiple Online Travel Agents (OTAs) to boost booking demand and, revenue. OYO’s best-in-class Artificial Intelligence-enabled pricing software automatically drives the best booking prices across all channels, based on room type, seasonality and other factors, therefore, enabling such increase in online revenues. OYO has started offering hotels the flexibility of not having to invest heavily in redoing the hotel to match stringent brand guidelines, something that other budget hotel chains insist on. It has been focusing instead on standardizing service led components such as customer support and booking experience. The company helps ensure great experience for customers, with ease of search and a quick booking experience, highly competitive room prices, automated tools such as Artificial Intelligence powered chatbots to quickly resolve customer queries, loyalty programmes and easy refund, if needed. OYO’s US operations recently announced that it has outpaced the budget hotel segments growth in per available room revenue (RevPar) with an 18% rise in 2022 vs pre-covid year, 2019. The budget hotel segment in the meanwhile, grew by only 6% in the US.

Winners (WNRS) Plans Further Expansion & Cancels 1 for 20 Reverse Split

WINNERS INC

McapMediaWire - Winners, Inc. (OTC: WNRS ) through its operating subsidiaries, provides sports betting enthusiasts with high-quality content, analysis, research, data, and guidance for popular betting sports, announced it is taking steps to expand its product line of Handicapping Services to include same-game parlays, prop betting and/or in-game sports wagering. Furthermore, the company decided to withdraw its application for a 1:20 reverse split of its common stock with FINRA. The Company withdrew the FINRA application considering its strategic expansion plans that include the increase of its product line and potential acquisitions that fit the company’s business model. Wayne Allyn Root, CEO of Winners Inc., stated, “We are currently exploring different options to expand our product line of Handicapping Services which will include same-game parlays, prop betting and/or in-game sports wagering. The expansion of services will add additional revenue streams to the company. Also, we have recently done a buy-back of the outstanding shares by over 50%, creating a very attractive share structure, and if you combine that with our plans for aggressive growth, a reverse split just doesn’t make sense to us. I look forward to updating our progress in the coming weeks." Same-game parlays, or SGPs, have emerged as not only one of the most popular bets on the board for bettors but also one of the most profitable for bookmakers. In last year's Super Bowl, 31% of bets placed before the game kicked off were same-game parlays at BetRivers, Barstool and other U.S. sportsbooks powered by Kambi, an international sports betting platform provider. At sportsbook PointsBet, 22% of all bets placed on the Super Bowl were SGPs. Both companies were anticipating even more Super Bowl SGPs this year. Not bad for something that sportsbooks in the U.S. only began accepting a few years ago. Prop betting is the act of betting on an event that takes place inside of or during a ga tome or sporting event. Prop bets involve betting on events that take place inside the game but will differ from traditional point spread and total bets that deal only with the final outcome. A better way to think about it is like this. While a point spread or total bet asks you a specific question about the end result of a contest, a prop bet asks you a question about a result that will take place inside the game or event but isn’t directly tied to the final score. Prop bets expand our betting options as they allow us to bet on different elements of a contest. Player performance, team totals, who will score first and who will score last, are just some of the examples of the opportunities that prop bets provide us. Live in-game betting is one of the most recent technological advancements in legal sports betting and one that has greatly improved the overall experience of sports betting. Essentially, live betting allows fans to bet on in-game outcomes while the game is being played. Before the introduction of live betting, all bets had to be locked in prior to the start of the game, but telecommunications technology and advanced analytics algorithms now allow sportsbooks to monitor the game and recalculate odds in real time. While live betting is a newer feature, it will likely prove popular in introducing sports betting to a younger, more tech-savvy generation of bettors.

The demand for sports betting is driven by factors such as the major shift in the regulatory landscape of the global gambling sector, the penetration of connected devices, and the developing digital infrastructure. The global sports sector has been greatly influenced by the COVID-19 pandemic due to restrictions on sporting activities across the globe. However, online sports betting gained popularity during the pandemic due to an upsurge in eSports and similar forms of betting.

Starbucks Shareholder Seeks Removal of Howard Schultz as Director; Urges Company to Be Transparent About China Risks

National Legal & Policy Center

Ahead of Starbucks Corporation ’s annual meeting on March 23, National Legal and Policy Center is calling upon its fellow shareholders to support its proposal to provide greater transparency about the company’s risks of doing business in China, and to join NLPC in opposition to the reelection of outgoing CEO Howard Schultz to the board of directors. NLPC is sponsoring an “Annual Report on Company Operations in China” resolution at the meeting, which seeks transparency for shareholders that addresses “the nature and extent to which corporate operations depend on, and are vulnerable to, communist China….” The item is Proposal No. 7, found on page 79 of Starbucks’s proxy statement. NLPC’s response to the Starbucks board’s opposition to its proposal was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission last week. NLPC also is asking shareholders, in a memo filed with the SEC, to oppose the reelection of longtime (and soon former) CEO Howard Schultz to the company’s board of directors. An excerpt from NLPC’s filing on Schultz says: We believe that Mr. Schultz being removed from all leadership and advisory roles within the company would be the most effective transition. Additionally, given Mr. Schultz’s insistence on exponential growth in risk-laden communist China; his dubious and likely illegal anti-union tactics; and his harmful politicization of the Company, we believe that his complete removal would be beneficial for the development of Mr. Narasimhan and growth of Starbucks. “In the past – even when Howard Schultz had no formal title with Starbucks – he always lurked in the shadows, and seemed to intervene when he saw problems that he arrogantly believed only he could solve,” said Paul Chesser, director of NLPC’s Corporate Integrity Project. “Disney had a similar situation last year with Bob Iger, who just couldn’t let the company go and undermined his successor before he returned, which led to the company’s worst year financially and image-wise in decades. Now Schultz may be doing the same with his aggressive union-busting efforts, which a federal judge has ruled are illegal.” On NLPC’s China proposal, Chesser said, “Mr. Schultz has built Starbucks’s presence in the communist nation beyond 6,000 stores, and has plans for thousands more, at a time of increasing geopolitical risk with U.S.-China relations approaching a critical point in hostilities. Shareholders must be thoroughly informed about the unique risks to the company that China’s aggression presents.” Finally, NLPC has also asked, in a memo filed with the SEC, for fellow Starbucks shareholders to support Proposal No. 9 on the proxy statement, which is sponsored by the Free Enterprise Project. The proposal asks the Company to create a special board committee to review the impacts of policies like its “Third Place Policy,” which opened its stores to anyone for the use of its restrooms and seating areas, regardless of whether they purchased anything. The practice has led to increased crime and unsafe environments around some stores, causing the closure of many of them. Founded in 1991, NLPC promotes ethics in public life and government accountability through research, investigation, education, and legal action. ### For more information or to schedule an interview with Paul Chesser, contact Dan Rene at 202-329-8357 or drene@nlpc.org.
