WagerWire Announces Marketplace Integration Partnership with Betr

WagerWire

WagerWire, a marketplace technology and media company serving sportsbooks and bettors, announced today it has signed a technology integration and media partnership deal with industry innovator Betr. As part of the partnership, WagerWire’s proprietary tech, which empowers bettors to buy and sell active sports bets and fantasy entries, will be fully integrated with Betr’s platform in the future, allowing for trading inside both Betr and WagerWire’s mobile apps. WagerWire transforms traditional bets into assets that can be bought and sold at any time, unlocking new ways to strategize, speculate and profit. The partnership serves to further differentiate Betr’s core user experience in an industry inundated with commoditized products, while placing WagerWire’s innovative offering at the forefront of the sports betting industry. The deal positions Betr, who is rapidly advancing towards product parity with incumbent operators, to vault ahead of the field by becoming the first to combine the trifecta of microbetting, traditional, and secondary markets. “While secondary markets are commonplace for things like concert tickets, trading cards, and even fashion, it has yet to exist at scale in sports betting – until now.” said Zach Doctor, Co-Founder and CEO of WagerWire. “We have great admiration for what Joey Levy, Jake Paul and the entire team at Betr have accomplished as both a gaming operator and media company.” “WagerWire’s technology creates a new category that supercharges the fan experience. Sports betting should be as fun and exciting as the sports themselves,” Doctor continued. “This can only be achieved through a holistic approach that pairs an intuitive and gamified product with engaging media and an impassioned community. I’m proud to say Betr shares this vision.” An independent survey earlier this year found that if a sportsbook offered their users the option of a secondary marketplace, 76% would place more bets and 72% would place larger ones, growing the overall pie. Additionally, 84% would place more parlays and 80% would place more futures, improving the book’s overall bet mix in these profitable categories. The same survey found 90% of bettors would rather sign up for a sportsbook offering a secondary betting marketplace, and 76% would spend more time inside that sportsbook’s app. “We are excited to partner with the WagerWire team, who shares our perspective that there is a significant opportunity to enhance the sports betting user experience through product innovation,” said Joey Levy, Founder and CEO of Betr. “We are looking forward to integrating their technology into our new V1 sportsbook platform being built on top of the recently acquired Chameleon platform, which remains on track to go live next year.” The partnership also extends to both companies’ rapidly growing media divisions. In just their first 10 months, Betr Media and the WagerWire Media Network surpassed 1.3B and 250M impressions on social media, respectively. The two already rank among the most engaged sports communities on the internet, with both being finalists for Best Sports Betting Content at the 2023 Hashtag Sports Awards, which Betr went on to win. WagerWire’s technology fits hand in glove with Betr’s social ethos, creating new ways for fans to ride bets together and share in the action with their favorite influencers as well as their friends. The companies will kick off the partnership by co-producing their first original video series this year with other projects to follow. WagerWire first came onto the scene when it announced its seed round in 2022 with backing from the likes of Miami Marlins co-owner Roger Ehrenberg (IA Sports Ventures and Eberg Capital), 305 Ventures, NBA All-Star Richard Jefferson, and SimpleBet co-founder Scott Marshall, among others. Betr was co-founded in 2022 by Joey Levy and Jake Paul and is backed by Roger Ehrenberg and Florida Funders as well as NFL players Dez Bryant, Ezekiel Elliot and other high profile personalities. Betr recently announced the closing of a 35M Series A2 round. About WagerWire WagerWire empowers bettors to take control of their action and treat their bets as assets that can be bought and sold at any time. WagerWire’s proprietary marketplace technology can be directly embedded into sportsbook apps, and also powers the WagerWire app that serves as an aggregated marketplace of bets across partner sportsbooks. WagerWire also has a Media Network that generates daily content “By Fans, For Fans”. You can find WagerWire @WagerWire on Twitter and LinkedIn, or @WagerWireLive on TikTok and at WagerWire.com. WagerWire is dedicated to providing users with a responsible gaming environment. If you think you or someone you know may have a gambling problem, resources are available. Call 1-800-GAMBLER. About Betr Founded in 2022 by Joey Levy and Jake Paul, Betr is a leading sports betting and sports media company through Betr Gaming and Betr Media, respectively. Betr Gaming is an online sports betting and gaming business focused on a unique product experience with a simplified user experience that is catered to the casual sports fan, enabling Betr to capture more of the underpenetrated online gaming addressable market.

Uno Pizzeria and Grill Initiates Fundraiser for Maui Relief Effort

UNO Pizzeria & Grill

Restaurant chain Uno Pizzeria and Grill, known as the birthplace of Deep Dish pizza, has launched a fundraiser that will benefit the Maui Strong fund. The pizza pioneer has collaborated with Anheuser Busch brand Kona Brewing to make a donation to the cause with a purchase of Kona Big Wave Golden Ale from Sept. 11th through 17th. An in-restaurant purchase of a Kona Big Wave during that period will trigger a 20% donation of the total guest check going to this fundraiser. The program will be run through most of the company’s 70 locations, which are a combination of franchise and company-owned restaurants. The Support for Maui fundraiser, known at Unos as a ‘DoughRaiser’, is an effort that is near and dear to Uno’s CEO Erik Frederick. Frederick was stationed on Pearl Harbor during his time serving in the United States Navy. “The Aloha Spirit becomes part of anyone who lives in Hawaii and leaves an indelible mark on their life and soul. I even met my wife in Hawaii, so it has always been a meaningful part of my life”. Frederick continued “Upon hearing of the tragic wildfires in Maui, I felt very strongly that we as a brand could contribute to the fundraising efforts as the recovery process will last for many years. We found a real partner in Anheuser Busch and their brand Kona Brewing whose roots are in Hawaii. It was just a natural partnership and quite frankly the right thing to do.” “This DoughRaiser allows guests of Uno Pizzeria and Grill to contribute in their own small way” stated Uno’s Director of Marketing, Chris Dellamarggio. “People always want to support when there are worthy causes, but may not know how get involved. Allowing them to contribute as part of their everyday activities gives them an easy way to give to the cause. When those contributions are pooled together across a brand like Uno’s, they can add up to a large donation.” The Maui Strong Fund is a new fund that has been set up by the well-regarded Hawai’i Community Foundation that works to get funds directly to organizations that need funding no matter their size as part of their regular every day mission. The Maui Strong Fund has been set up get immediate relief to multiple organizations that need the funds to take action now. Information about the foundation and the Maui Strong Fund can be found at hawaiicommunityfoundation.org. About UNO Pizzeria & Grill Based in Boston, Massachusetts, Uno Restaurant Holdings Corporation includes approximately 80 company-owned and franchised UNO Pizzeria & Grill restaurants located in 18 states, and the District of Columbia, India, and Saudi Arabia.

For the remaining four races, Twang’s logo will proudly find its place alongside other sponsors on the vehicle. "We're revving up for an electrifying partnership with Spencer in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series Season," said Edmundo Macias, Director of Marketing of Twang. "Just like the fast-paced action on the track, Twang's flavorful offerings bring joy and excitement to food and drink enthusiasts nationwide. This collaboration perfectly aligns with our upcoming expansion into 3,500 Walmart stores across the country with our Lime & Lemon-Lime Beer Salt, and we're eager to amplify our presence in the hearts of NASCAR fans."

In 1986, Twang Founder Roger Treviño Sr. left his career after experiencing an epiphany while on a business trip in Mexico. Visiting a Mexican street vendor selling citrus salt, he was reminded of his childhood in San Antonio, with its abundance of Latino flavors. He returned home inspired to create a variety of flavored salts to share with friends and family. Launching the Twang business out of his family garage and together with the Treviño children to help, his first product (and claim to fame) was Twang Beer Salt, an integral product in the Southern trend of “dressing” beers and other libations. From these humble beginnings, the Treviños have since expanded Twang product lines into flavored salt for food, cocktail rimmer blends, michelada mix, and more to come!

Best Online Casinos Iceland - Top Casino Sites ICE

AM Europe

Iceland isn’t a country renowned for its gambling community - and, as such, online casinos in Iceland are predominantly operated by foreign entities, such as 22Bet. This means that as a player, you need to do plenty of research before getting started. You can’t simply take a lucky dip and start playing. It is essential that you make sure you pick a trusted and reputable experience… so you avoid a substandard experience. But fear not, in this guide we will provide you with a comprehensive overview of everything you need to know to get your Iceland casino journey started. The Top Rated Online Casinos in Iceland Here is our list of online casinos in Iceland: 22bet - Best Online Casino Overall Tsars Casino - Top Choice for Slot Games Vulkan Vegas - Top Pick for Poker Games 20Bet - Top Pick for Mobile Ice Casino - Lowest Wagering Requirements BC.Game - Best Casino for Crypto Payments GG.bet Casino - Same-day payouts How We Choose the Best Online Casinos in Iceland Here are the main factors we consider when deciding which online casinos deserve a place on our list of top-rated sites. Licence and Reputation Unlicensed casinos can pose a huge risk as they lack proper oversight and regulations - which means they can’t necessarily be trusted. That's why it is imperative to opt for licensed casinos… a factor we prioritise greatly. Once we are assured of its licence, we conduct thorough reviews of a casino's reputation before featuring them on our website. Welcome Bonus and Existing Player Bonuses Players should also be able to enjoy value for money. So we then assess the bonuses - we look to see how big the welcome bonus is and how fair the terms are. Moreover, we then scrutinise the promotions they offer their existing players. We want to make sure the casino rewards new and existing players before featuring them on our website. The Game Selection We also examine the casino's game selection to see what choices are available to players - from online slots to roulette, table games and live dealer games. Quality is every bit as important as quantity, so we also assess the list of providers the casino collaborates with to ensure that you are getting a first-class experience. Customer Support Sometimes things don’t go to plan, which is why we also prioritise the quality of customer service. Anything can happen when playing at a casino - and money is at risk so convenient access to support is crucial. Hence, we assess the variety of customer support channels offered and how easy it is to contact them. Safety and Security The site should also be fully safe and secure. As such, we look for aspects such as SSL encryption technology to see that its certificate is in place along with any other measures they have in place, so you can be assured that your details and money are completely protected. Hopefully, taking all of the above into consideration, you should experience the very best online casino experience in Iceland. The History of Gambling in Iceland There was once a time when Iceland stood as a bustling centre for gambling activities, busy and thriving. Yet, as time has progressed, it has regressed somewhat… and the nation has undertaken certain measures to outlaw online gaming, which makes it tricky for online casinos operating in the country. Before this all occurred, the country had established gambling regulations to oversee the sector; however, these have undergone a transformation over time. As such, there are several different eras within the timeline - so let’s see how the online casino landscape has changed over time. 1926 - The Lottery Act Gambling in Iceland dates all the way back to 1926 when the government introduced its very first gambling statute. Subsequently, the Lottery Act became an integral part of this legal framework, during a time when casinos and gambling across Europe was at its peak. What’s more, because there were still many countries that had yet to establish regulations for their own gambling sectors, Iceland emerged as a pioneer in the industry. However, that did mean that other gambling activities that were happening in the country had been outlawed. 1933 - Amendment of the Lottery Act There was an amendment made to the Lottery Act in 1933 which allowed the University of Iceland to own and run its own lottery. They would only be allowed to do so, however, if 8% of its proceeds went directly into the university’s purse. This amendment also gave rise to more lotteries - and thus Iceland saw more state-owned lotteries which are still available to this day. 1994 - Approval of Land-Based Casino Slot Machines In 1994, the country approved the operation of land-based casino slot games. That being said, there was a clause to their operation - that all proceeds from that establishment would go directly to charity. Even to this day, these slot games are still available and still incredibly popular. Outright Ban on Online Casinos Despite the above, Iceland has, in place, an outright ban on online casinos operating within the country. So, finding an online casino operating legally in the country isn’t possible because they don’t issue licences. That’s why residents of Iceland need to rely on established and trustworthy offshore casinos. The great news is that these laws do not forbid players from playing at these international casinos, so you’re free to play… but you just need to play at a trusted and reputable international casino. The Future of Online Casinos in Iceland Although there is no place for online casinos in Iceland, as a resident of Iceland, you can play at offshore gaming sites. As such, more and more people are starting to use them and they are becoming ever more popular… with people more interested in what they offer. There is hope that there will eventually be changes in the online gambling laws which would allow locally owned and operated online casinos to start offering games - allowing for an even more smooth and localised gaming experience. Ultimately, we think that there is a bright future for online casino players in Iceland… and we believe changes will be made. It may be that soon we will see Icelandic online casinos emerge… and non-restricted online gambling may well be closer than you thought! The Legality of Online Casinos in Iceland The legality of online casinos in Iceland is a complex and evolving matter. As has been the case for a number of years, online casinos operate in a legal grey area. While the country has had a history of gambling regulations, the rise of online platforms has posed challenges to traditional legislation. Iceland's focus on preventing gambling addiction and maintaining a responsible gambling environment influenced its stance. The government has taken measures to restrict access to foreign online casinos and has considered implementing stricter controls. However, the situation is ever-evolving. So, whilst it’s possible to play at international online casinos, it’s always good to check the regulations. Deposit & Withdrawal Limits at Iceland Online Casino Sites In the absence of specific online gambling regulations in Iceland, the deposit and withdrawal limits depend on your chosen online casino. That’s why, before you open an account with an online casino, you should check for yourself whether there are any restrictions on deposit and withdrawal transactions. Before registering and depositing, examine the lower and upper thresholds - indeed, if you are a high roller or a more casual player, this criterion could be a pivotal factor in your casino selection process. The very best online casinos will be flexible, making it easy for all types of players to deposit, play and withdraw. Online Casino Licences in Iceland Iceland does not issue online casino licences, which means that you need to look for the very best international online casinos with international licences. In these instances, you need to do your research. Look for their games, customer support etc - and look to see which regulatory body has granted them a licence. When picking your casino based on its licence, it is advisable to look for the more esteemed casino licensing bodies like the Malta Gaming Authority, UK Gambling Commission and Curacao. These regulatory entities are widely considered to be the most reputable, and in our opinion, the casinos operating under their oversight deliver unparalleled gambling encounters. Responsible Gambling in Iceland The reason that there are so many restrictions behind gambling in Iceland is because of the potential escalation of problem gambling. As such, any offshore casino that wants to accept Icelandic players will need to incorporate responsible gambling protocols to ensure that players have access to all the tools and assistance needed. As the availability of casinos expands within the nation, the demand for secure online casino platforms has surged - and responsible gambling has emerged as a significant focal point in the country. The best casinos available in Iceland provide an array of precautionary measures - including time constraints, self-exclusion options, deposit limitations, and more. The very best establishments will even collaborate with responsible gambling companies to extend support to anyone dealing with any of these issues. Problem Gamblers Helpline in Iceland There are currently no local helplines for problem gambling in the country. However, there are a number of associations offering assistance, including the Nordic Society Foundation for Information about Problem Gambling which covers players in Iceland, Finland, Denmark and the other Nordic states. They are contactable in a couple of ways: Email: inka.silvennoinen@snsus.org Phone: +358 407 608 507 Are Online Casino Winnings Taxed in Iceland? One of the advantages of needing to play at an offshore casino in Iceland is the fact that they won’t be subject to local taxes. However, they may be liable for income taxes and VAT that will need to be paid on any transactions that are paid into your local bank account. That being said, it’s a good idea to review the tax laws in the country and learn a little bit more about how it works. So, for now, unless anything changes in the near future, no taxes are technically applicable! Casino Bonuses in Iceland Opting to play at the very best casino sites in Iceland will mean you get to enjoy an excellent array of bonuses. First, when you have made your very first deposit, you’ll be able to claim the first welcome bonus - and they should come in thick and fast after that… the more, the better. The selection of existing player bonuses is paramount to rewarding players for their loyalty and keeping them coming back for more. As such, you should be able to use these rewards to enhance your gambling experience - and, when used wisely, increase your chances of winning even more. Just make sure you read the information on the bonuses, check that they will give you value for money, read through the terms and conditions and only spend money you would have spent. You shouldn’t avoid going over your budget just to claim a bonus. So, that being said, here are some of the best bonuses to look out for: No Deposit Bonuses No deposit casino bonuses are excellent rewards offered by online casinos without requiring you to make any initial monetary deposit. These bonuses give you a risk-free opportunity to explore and enjoy various casino games, potentially winning real money prizes without spending your own funds. When available you can claim these bonuses when opening a new account - and they often come in the form of free spins or bonus cash, However, they will come with T&Cs, including wagering requirements and often a win cap. Matched Deposit Bonus: A matched deposit bonus is where the casino matches a portion of your deposit with bonus money. For example, if you deposit €100 and the casino offers a 100% matched deposit bonus, you would receive an additional €100 in bonus funds. This will give an extra boost to your starting balance - meaning more gameplay and more chance of winning. Cashback Unfortunately, in the world of casinos, losing happens. A cashback casino bonus is a promotion where you receive a percentage of your losses back as a cash refund. This bonus offers a bit of a safety net, allowing you to recover a portion of your unsuccessful. If you claim a 10% cashback offer and you lose €100, for example, then you will get an extra €10 to play… which you can use to try and win a little bit of that back. Free Spins The free spins casino bonus simply gives you a set number of free (or bonus) spins on designated slot games. You can enjoy these spins without spending your own money and as long as you fulfil the terms, such as the wagering requirements, you get to withdraw the winnings, meaning you can get an even more potentially winning experience. Reload Bonus The reload casino bonus is a promotion where you get to receive a bonus when making subsequent deposits after your first bonus. It essentially rewards player loyalty by providing extra money to play with. It is usually a matched deposit bonus that is used to encourage you to keep on playing. Specials: A lot of casinos provide customised offers for individual players as well as seasonal promotions. These can encompass a variety of offerings - such as birthday bonuses or themed promotions tied to specific seasons, holidays, or events. To see what’s on offer, you can head to the casino's dedicated bonus page and see what’s in the offing. Bonus Terms and Conditions No matter how great the bonus looks, you should always read the terms and conditions before claiming it - as this will ultimately decide how good the actual bonus is and whether or not you will be able to withdraw your winnings. Here are the main things to factor - The wagering requirements - the number of times you will need to wager the bonus money with your own money (usually between 20x and 60x - the lower, the better) The maximum bet you can make with your bonus money The games you can use your bonus money on and the games that contribute to the wagering requirements. The maximum cashout or win limit. If you fail to read the above terms, then your bonus and any winnings may be voided, so make sure you read them through carefully. Payment Methods for Online Casinos in Iceland The best online casinos in Iceland will offer a variety of payment options that allow you to deposit your money quickly and securely. Here are some of the best payment options that are available at many of the top recommended sites: Skrill Skrill is a widely used digital payment platform that allows for secure and convenient online transactions. It allows you to send and receive money, make online purchases… and fund your casino account. Skrill offers e-wallet services, which means you can store funds and access quickly, easily and securely - and is thus a popular choice for online casino players. Neteller Neteller, like Skrill, is another prominent digital payment system offering e-wallet services. It allows you to transfer money, make online purchases, and put money into your casino account securely. Hugely popular among online casino players, Neteller provides a convenient and efficient way to manage your money. Bank Transfer Bank transfers are a more traditional method for casino transactions. You can securely deposit and withdraw funds directly from your bank account to the casino - and while it may take a bit longer compared to other methods, bank transfers are a great option if you prioritise the safety and familiarity of direct bank transactions. Credit Cards Credit cards are a popular and widely accepted option for casino transactions in Iceland. They let you easily deposit funds - allowing for immediate access to the very best casino games. Visa and Mastercard are generally the most commonly supported, offering a convenient and familiar way to play at the casino… as long as you make sure you manage payments within a predefined credit limit. Top Online Casino Games in Iceland An online casino in Iceland presents a captivating array of games to cater to diverse preferences. You can engage in classic table games such as blackjack, roulette, baccarat, and poker, each available in all sorts of different variants. Then we have the spinning reels of slot machines - and casinos usually offer hundreds, if not thousands to choose from, including video slots, progressive jackpots and all sorts of themed options.

The lawsuit contains various transactional details, including the purchase price, deposit contingencies, escrow conditions, and most crucially, the broker commission. As part of the agreement, Sunday was set to receive a 4% commission from Cerni. Additionally, Court documents allege Qazi was to pay an additional 2% commission for his participation in the transaction. Neither Cerni nor Qazi ever paid for the brokerage services rendered by Sunday and instead aided and abetted each other by unlawfully withholding Sunday’s earned commission. According to the complaint on file in Orange County Superior Court, when the sale closed in December 2022, both Dr. Cerni and Dr. Qazi reneged on their commitment, denying Sunday her rightfully earned commission totaling $285,000. The lawsuit sheds light on the doctors’ intentional deceit, alleging they misled Sunday with a promise to pay their respective commissions to Sunday upon the close of escrow yet failed to do so. The lawsuit seeks damages of no less than $4 million, citing California’s fraud statute in addition to the breach of contract claims. Sunday is represented by Elliott H. Stone, Esq., of Stone LLP, in Irvine California. The lawsuit names among the defendants: Joseph S. Cerni, D.O. a Professional Corporation, JSC Holdings LLC, Rockitgram LLC, Belle Vie Wellness and Medical Aesthetics Inc., Beautiful Reflections Inc., Forever Ageless, Inc., Nubella Med Spa, Inc., Pure Fix Medical Institute, Inc., Qazcorp, Qazi Cosmetic and Monumental Investments LLC.

What Are Pokies In Australia? Guide to Pokies

AM Europe

Pokies, which is short for "poker machines," have become ingrained in the culture of Australia, with their pulsating lights and alluring sounds luring players from all corners of the nation to try their luck at winning. Pokies, which are more often referred to as slot machines in other areas of the world, occupy a special place in the gaming landscape of Australia. This article explores the history, popularity, and regulation of pokies in Australia, as well as the societal consequences of these games. To find the best sites to play pokies and online casino games, visit Hindustantimes.com History Behind Pokies The first pokie machines were introduced to the Australian market in the early 1950s, and they rapidly became very popular. In the beginning, these were only simple mechanical machines with easy-to-understand rules and the opportunity for players to win token rewards. The evolution of technology over the years has allowed for the development of electronic versions of pokies, which include games with more intricate graphics, a greater number of paylines, and a variety of bonus features. Popularity The popularity of poker machines (pokies) across all segments of Australian society is undeniable. In every region of the country, you can seek them out in bars, nightclubs, casinos, and independent gaming establishments. Because of the allure of potential jackpots and the excitement of each spin, slot machines, often known as pokies, have become one of the most popular forms of gambling. This has resulted in a considerable contribution to the overall revenue generated by the gambling industry. Regulatory Framework In Australia, the regulation of pokies is accomplished through a convoluted mix of regulations at the federal, state, and territorial levels. Each state and territory in the United States has its own restrictions regarding the maximum wager amount, the maximum number of machines, and other aspects of responsible gambling. The inclusion of harm-minimization methods, such as mandatory pre-commitment and loss restrictions, is intended to reduce the possible adverse effects that pokies could have on persons who are more susceptible to their effects. Societal Impact While many people like the amusement that pokies give, others are concerned about the impact that they have on society. The addictive quality of these machines has contributed to people having problems with their gambling and the consequences that come along with that. As individuals might become stuck in a cycle of losses and attempts to recuperate them, the financial and emotional strain produced by problem gambling often falls squarely on the shoulders of their families and the communities in which they live. Problem Gambling A key problem that is related to pokies is problem gambling, which is sometimes characterized as an inability to manage one's gambling behaviors despite the negative repercussions of such practices. The ease of access and quick playtime offered by electronic equipment can contribute to the development of compulsive behaviors. In order to mitigate the negative effects of this issue, a number of harm reduction techniques have been put into place, such as self-exclusion programs, breaks that are required to be taken during play, and education campaigns to promote knowledge about responsible gambling. Economic Contributions On the other hand, the pokies industry makes a considerable contribution to Australia's economy. The cash that is created from pokies helps to sustain the hospitality and entertainment industries, provides funding for public services, and offers employment opportunities to a large number of people. However, the question of how to strike a moral balance between economic contributions and the possibility of doing harm to society is one that is still being discussed. Technological Evolution Pokies, or slot machines, are undergoing various changes as a direct result of the ongoing development of technology. The rise of digital and online pokies has made it possible for gamers to experience the same gameplay without leaving the convenience of their own homes. Emerging innovations in the gaming industry also include mobile apps and virtual reality pokies, both of which add a new dimension to the overall gaming experience Conclusion The combination of entertainment, the generating of revenue, and the addressing of societal issues give pokies a special place in Australian culture. The potential for them to contribute to problem gambling is a significant concern despite the fact that they have improved over the years to include more complex graphics and features that are more interesting to the player. The maintenance of a successful entertainment business while also protecting vulnerable individuals is a difficult challenge that involves collaboration between the government, the various stakeholders of the entertainment sector, and support services. To maintain a gaming environment that is both healthier and more sustainable, it is necessary to have well-thought-out regulations and an increased understanding of responsible gambling practices. This is especially true as Australia continues to struggle with the effects of pokies. Contact Details Online Casino Guides support@pokiesnetwork.com

YourUpdateTV

A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/Zr1Os51K6G8 On August 21, the U.S. Army unveiled “First Steps,” a new campaign that shows young Americans how they can start their journey to service. The campaign is built on the premise that American youth don’t need to have everything figured out from the beginning to make an impact. Taking a chance is the first step to achieving your goals. The campaign is a continuation of the “Be All You Can Be” brand refresh, which launched in March 2023. The new campaign offers an up-close, personal, and unfiltered look at Soldiers embarking on some of the most powerful experiences in their early Army journeys, including arriving at basic training, receiving their first patch, and hitting their first target from a battle tank. Maj. Sam Winkler is a shining example of where your first steps can take you in the U.S. Army. After immigrating to the United States from Nepal, she took her own first step: enlisting in the Army at 17 years old. Now, as a Soldier and a mom, she has used her passion for family to help lead a first grassroots effort transforming the way the U.S. Army supports parents in the force. Her efforts, in collaboration with other Army parents, led to the development of the Army’s Directive 2022-06: Parenthood, Pregnancy, and Postpartum. Twelve policy changes address key issues like family care planning, fertility treatments, paid parental leave, support in returning to work, and more. On August 30, Maj. Winkler conducted a nationwide media tour discussing the campaign and the limitless opportunities in the Army for youth to find their purpose, explore their passions, build connections, and join a community. Topics Maj. Winkler discussed included: The Army’s new “First Steps” campaign Her path to Army service and the many firsts along the way Her work to improve Army life for parents through the Directive on Parenthood, Pregnancy, and Postpartum The limitless possibilities and benefits available to Army Soldiers and their families To learn more, visit: https://www.goarmy.com/ Contact Details YourUpdateTV +1 212-736-2727 yourupdatetv@gmail.com

As Shiba Inu (SHIB) Continues Sliding, Holders Move to the Watchvestor (WVTR) Presale for Outstanding Gains

Total Media

The recent challenges Shiba Inu (SHIB) faced in the wake of the technically troubled Shibarium launch have left investors seeking stability. As SHIB grapples with setbacks, the Watchvestor (WVTR) presale emerges as an appealing alternative. Thus, drawing holders searching for a secure option to safeguard their investments. Invest in Rolex, Patek Phillippe, Richard Mille, AP for as little as $10 Shiba Inu (SHIB): Faces Turbulence The once-buzzing Shiba Inu (SHIB) token is on a downward trajectory, grappling with the aftermath of the technically troubled Shibarium launch. This Ethereum Layer-2 network launch was struck by technical challenges that have raised concerns about the Shiba Inu coin outlook. In fact, the Shiba Inu price saw a gradual rise in the weeks leading up to the Shibarium launch, but after the launch on August 16th, it suddenly dropped. As Shiba Inu struggles to regain its footing, the incident has underscored the significance of technical stability and flawless execution. Furthermore, Shiba Inu still lacks any intrinsic value or utility. As a result, holders now look for alternative projects that could yield them more gains in the future. Watchvestor (WVTR): A Beacon of Opportunity Amid the challenges faced by Shiba Inu, the Watchvestor (WVTR) presale emerges as a rising star. This innovative platform addresses and resolves many issues plaguing the luxury watch market. Therefore, ushering in a new era of inclusivity and innovation for all interested in joining this industry. Firstly, as we all know, owning a luxury watch often demands a significant upfront investment. But, Watchvestor addresses the high-cost barrier by tokenizing luxury watches, allowing investors to own fractional shares. In other words, Watchvestor will mint an NFT backed by an actual watch and then fractionalize it. As a result, users can purchase it for prices as low as $10. Additionally, verifying the authenticity and provenance of luxury watches can be challenging, leading to uncertainties and risks for potential buyers. However, Watchvestor will place all certificates and watch serial numbers in the NFT metadata. Therefore, instilling trust and faith in the community as a watch's entire lifecycle is available in a decentralized digital ledger. The WVTR token lies at the heart of the Watchvestor ecosystem, serving as a utility token. Holding this token will bring benefits such as discounts, governance, and more. Currently, one WVTR token has a value of just $0.03 as it is in Stage 1 of its presale. But, thanks to its low market cap, many analysts foresee a jump to $0.35 soon - leaving Shiba Inu in the dust.
