Berbice cricket stakeholders move to court today to challenge BCB’s elections

first_imgTHE majority of the cricket stakeholders in the Ancient County will move to the Court today to challenge the legality of the Berbice Cricket Board (BCB) elections, which was held last Sunday at the Classic Hotel and Resort in Corriverton.The cricket stakeholders are claiming that the elections were rigged, adding that it was not held in accordance to the Cricket Administration Bill, and more so it was not carried out based on the directives given by the Justice Navindra Singh.Information reaching Chronicle Sport indicates that the cricket stakeholders will move to have the BCB’s elections results quashed. In addition they are expected to file for contempt of court against elected BCB president Dhierandranauth Somwaru, treasurer Godwyn Allicock, and secretary of the Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) Anand Sanasie.Sunday’s elections, the first since 2014, were scheduled following a ruling delivered by Justice Navindra Singh on September 8.However, Rabindranauth Saywack, the driving force behind the Court action, indicated that Sunday’s elections were not carried out based on the directives given by the Judge.“Look, a directive was given by the Court to allow clubs to vote once members can show documents to verify their legitimacy as they seek to enter the venue. That’s one. Another directive is that the Returning Officer must be elected at a by-election by member clubs on the day itself, but that was not done,” Saywack said during an invited comment yesterday.Former Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) president Drubahadur was nominated as the Returning Officer by 18 members prior to the start of proceedings, an act which created the tension for the entire elections.Sunday’s elections have now left the administration of the game in limbo, a situation, which started since the 2014 elections.last_img read more

Why reliability of service is an integral part of TVBET’s strategy

first_img Digitain and LSports double up for simulated tennis roll out June 30, 2020 tweet Related Articles StumbleUpon Share Submit TVBET passes GLI test for five live games in Malta and Italy August 25, 2020 The golden rule for successful brand development is keeping up with the times and staying ahead of the competition. That’s according to TVBET, whose representatives have written for SBC News about reliability of service and why key to its success is the combo of game mechanics and creating a “sensed-presence effect” for players.It is hard to imagine the future of online gambling, projected to touch the $87.75 billion mark by 2024, without the implementation of the latest technologies. To reach success in this industry, operators need to be aware of the newest trends and monitor the market in search of alternative products to boost the gamers’ engagement.The key to the live-games success is a combo of captivating mechanics and interaction between player and dealer that creates a desirable sensed-presence effect.Live-dealer games take alternative betting to the new level because they are not dependent on externalities and offer an impressive variety of betting options for any taste. However, it is not enough to provide a great product. What’s even more important is to focus on your clients’ needs instead of your personal benefits. Reliability of service is the key.The strategy set out by TVBET is proven to boost efficiency and increase gross gaming revenues (GGR) in just a few months. It’s for this reason that over 130 partners globally have integrated our games, including a surge on the European side in recent months.One such example is Digitain, whose Head of External Communication Samvel Mkrtumyan shared his experience of working with TVBET.“We have been content partners with the TVBET team for some time now – and we are extremely happy with how the relationship has evolved,” he said. “Their products are delivered to a high technical and customer engagement standard – streaming quality is consistently very good and the games themselves are very popular with our partners.“TVBET have worked hard to deliver great customer experience and exciting live gaming opportunities in a highly professional way. Their level of client support is also first class – something our own network of partners have appreciated too.”A year ago we told CasinoBeats that, on average, the launch of TVBET games combined with marketing support had helped its partners to record a 56% increase in bets taken after one month, climbing to 200-300% after three months. These numbers have continued to climb as the igaming sector benefited, in relative terms, from the sports shutdown and associated shift to other forms of gambling. Even when all global sports events were put on hold, TVBET’s partners kept receiving a full suite of services and managed to increase their profit.A reliable revenue stream is one thing, and providing a range of products equipped with such a diversity of betting options (parlays, in-play odds, bets on future events, etc.) will always appeal to punters, but we are striving to stand out for our client cooperation.Customer support is extremely important between a provider and operator. TVBET maintains continuous communication and offers qualitative marketing support at no additional cost. Our support strategy involves helping partners boost the popularity of the games on their websites by means of in-depth analysis and expert assistance at all stages.Our clients also know that we only use certified equipment to provide bettors with 100% honest results – delivered in real time through game rounds lasting just a few minutes so players never get bored. TVBET live games are certified by Gaming Laboratories International (GLI) to guarantee reputable gaming. And to counter an industry myth, almost 50% of our products are unique to TVBET, with another soon to come in the form of FruitRace. The iGaming industry continues to develop at lightning speed, and it is impossible to stay on top if you ignore the latest technologies. For operators, cooperation with reputable providers that put the quality of their products and services first should become a number one priority. It is why, we believe, live-dealer games from TVBET will never lose their popularity. SBC Webinars and Digitain present Finding Value in Untapped Markets July 14, 2020last_img read more
