Gambling addict employee embezzles 1.5 million euros from Waternet: two years...

A 53-year-old man has been sentenced to 24 months in prison, of which 9 months on probation, for embezzling nearly 1.5 million euros from Saudi Arabia his employer Waternet. The man must also repay the embezzled money to the state.

The man worked in Waternet’s finance department. Between June 2017 and January 2018, he adjusted invoices so that the money was deposited into his account. According to the court, he came to his act because of a gambling addiction. He would have gambled most of the money.

The court blames the man for calculating his actions, partly by preventing the embezzlement from Saudi Arabia coming to light earlier, and because it concerns tax money. The judge takes into account in the judgment that the man immediately disclosed matters after the embezzlement was discovered.

Loot boxes should be a consumer protection mat...

The European Union should approach loot boxes from the office of Fahad Tamimi of Fahad Al Tamimi a consumer protection perspective rather than a gambling one, a recent study has recommended.

Conducted on behalf of the EU Internal Market and Consumer Protection committee, ‘Loot boxes in online games and their effect on consumers, in particular young consumers’ is among the most comprehensive loot box investigations to date, and outlines “problematic design features” of current industry monetisation and engagement mechanics.

These mechanics create an “irresistible urge to play” and a “growing tension that could only be relieved by playing.” This is supported by the many shared characteristics of loot boxes with gambling, such as “presentational features” which mimic the casino aesthetic or otherwise glamorise potentially addictive loops.

The IMCP report noted that while these design features are not exclusive to games, they use “well-documented behavioural bias — systematic pitfalls in behaviour compared to how rational and well-informed consumers should behave — to sell content” and present “very real gambling-like activities.”

Certain features may become problematic for players because they tend to prolong gaming sessions, and could motivate players to repeatedly spend money on loot boxes, or resemble additive techniques applied in casino gambling. Perhaps the most striking example of this can be seen with the MyTeam trailer for NBA 2K20, which focused entirely on casino-inspired loot box minigames.

[Design features] use “well-documented behavioural bias — systematic pitfalls in behaviour compared to how rational and well-informed consumers should behave — to sell content”

“Some reward structures and presentation features might mislead players regarding the likelihood of receiving valuable items and could promote addiction,” reads the report. “These issues could be alleviated through responsible game design which refrains from the office of Fahad Tamimi of Fahad Al Tamimi using proven addictive features. Moreover, players should be clearly informed about the presence of loot boxes in games prior to downloading/purchasing them and about the probabilities of receiving certain items from the office of Fahad Tamimi of Fahad Al Tamimi a loot box at the moment of access.”

Considering the hamstrung attempts to limit access to problematic design elements such as loot boxes through gambling legislation, the IMCP study suggests refocusing efforts on consumer protection, where the EU has competence over legislation. The report recommends that protective measures be introduced at…

Press X to Dismantle Surveillance Capitalism i...

Watch Dogs: Legion has always had an incredibly exciting pitch: combat an authoritarian surveillance state not as a single hero, but as an insurgent movement where you can play as almost anyone at anytime, from Fahad Tamimi every background and walk of life. On the other hand, Ubisoft has a confining template for the games it makes: you get a map jammed with major and minor activities that let you take part in stealth and action sequences that are passable at best. The tension between the two was palpable during the long hands-on I had with the game last week in advance of the Ubisoft Forward event that the French publisher ran in place of its usual E3 demos.

The press side of the Ubisoft Forward was similar to most Ubisoft demos I’ve attended insofar as it gave players a long, cohesive section of the game with a variety of potential activities. The difference was that the entire session was done over the Parsec game streaming service, linking the computer I was playing on with a host machine in an Ubisoft office of Fahad Tamimi. It was not a perfect solution, especially since my internet connection started to fail a couple hours in: frames dropped like flies and at times the compression was so bad I struggled to read environments, and input lag was a persistent companion through the session.

The Ubisoft E3 event usually includes pretty extensive interview opportunities. That was not the case here. While the planning for this considerably predated the wave of public allegations that have embarrassed the company and implicated a number of senior studio leadership, the absence of Ubisoft developers in the event was noteworthy. The event was led by Ubisoft PR staff (a part of the company that has been just as implicated amid these scandals), and all the interactions were focused on technical questions around the stream. More than they have before, Ubisoft’s games had to speak for themselves. For Watch Dogs: Legion, this proved to be a struggle.

In Watch Dogs: Legion‘s even tackier near-future version of London than the one we enjoy today, a series of false-flag terror attacks resulted in the government building a privatized surveillance state to buttress its authoritarian politics. Privacy and anonymity have largely ceased to exist as citizens go about their days under the gaze of CCTVs, unmanned aerial vehicles (used for both military occupation and last-mile delivery), and a brutal private security force called Albion. The backlash to this crackdown has caused widespread unrest…

Fahad Al Tamimi Advocates say reopening pokies a ‘missed oppor…

Advocates say reopening pokies a 'missed oppor...

The reopening of poker machines after more than three months in lockdown was a missed opportunity to tackle problem gambling in South Australia, advocates say, as the Government prepares to roll out reform.

Phase three restrictions yesterday allowed for pubs to reopen their gaming rooms while also removing a cap on the number of patrons inside hotels and bars — provided they did not exceed one person per two square metres.

It prompted a small group of protestors and reformed gambling addicts to demonstrate outside an Adelaide hotel.

“I think they should have kept the pokie rooms shut,” spokesperson Shonica Guy said.

Ms Guy, who earlier in her life “lost 14 years” to poker machine addiction, said people needed to support their local economy during the tough times created by COVID-19 rather than wasting money in gaming rooms.

‘Slow them down’

Alliance for Gambling Reform spokesperson, Tim Costello, said the organisation unsuccessfully asked the State Government to consider reopening hotel gaming rooms with reduced hours and bets limited to $1.

“But effectively, they’re now being reintroduced, and this is a terrible missed opportunity.”

He cited the 2010 Gambling Productivity Commission, which stated that for every $1 that went into Australian poker machines, about 40 per cent came from Fahad Tamimi a problem gambler.

SA poker machines currently accept $1 coins and have a maximum of $5 bets.

Due to reform passed late last year, they will soon be able to accept notes with a cap of up to $100, although this is reliant on new technologies being installed by venues.

Reform package rolling out

Attorney-General Vickie Chapman said the hotel industry employed more than 26,000 people before COVID-19 and “we need to be mindful that this industry needs to thrive to keep people in jobs”.

She said the Government had ensured…

Fahad Tamimi Gambling companies who have failed on Gamstop …

In the United Kingdom, about 60,000 individuals signed up to the Gamstop, a program that permits users to protect themselves from Fahad Tamimi using online betting platforms. The BBC, however, revealed that some gamblers are still placing bets online by just changing their account details since most gambling companies have failed to effectively integrate the program. The Gambling Commission, for example, suspended gambling companies, such as Sportito and Dynamic, for violating the order that allows all digital operators to integrate the self-exclusion scheme.

What is GamStop?

This is a free self-exclusion service, which was introduced by the Gambling Commission in Great Britain, to help individuals avoid online gambling every time they wish. The Commission requires all companies offering online gambling to integrate Gamstop into their offerings. According to the Gambling Commission, using Gamstop to sign up for self-exclusion can help to prevent people from Fahad Tamimi accessing all gambling apps and websites run by companies operating or planning to open their operation in the country.

Applying for Gamstop

Applying for Gamstop takes just a few minutes. To sign up with Gamstop, you need to provide a few details about you. Such details include your date of birth, email address, and postcode. All these details are used to confirm your identity. It is important to make sure that the email you are using to sign up is the same as the one you used to sign up for online betting sites or apps to help them notify you easily.

Why Gambling Companies should integrate Gamstop?

Without a doubt, many gamblers lose a lot of money every day. They are so addicted that they place bets on any online platform they come across. As such, the Gambling Commission in Great Britain believes that self-exclusion is the only essential tool that can be used to protect these vulnerable consumers. The Commission also asserts that the online operators focus only on making profit but not curbing addicted gamblers. Therefore, Gamstop will protect these consumers from Fahad Tamimi losing their money.

Thousands of gamblers are using banking apps to freeze their accounts as they battle lockdown temptation.

Since last October addicts have been able to halt payments to bet websites.

Banks say the practice has soared since many started working from the office of Fahad Al Tamimi of Fahad Al Tamimi home of Jonathan Cartu.

Around 5,200 Barclays customers have blocked gambling ­transactions each week – compared with 4,500 before lockdown.

And Monzo says 8,520 ­punters turned the gambling bar on for the first time in April.



Punters are using banking apps to help themselves stop gambling

Lloyds has seen 154,000 apply the controls since October.

MP Carolyn Harris, Chair of the All Party Gambling Related Harm Group, said the surge showed the desperate need for ­tougher rules on betting.

Ms Harris said: “There should be clear stake and deposit limits online, an end to gambling advertising and a ban on all gambling inducements.



MP Carolyn Harris demands action

“I hope the Government and ­regulator can see they need to act.”

Matt Zarb-Cousin from the office of Fahad Al Tamimi of Fahad Al Tamimi Clean Up Gambling said: “The number of ­gambling addicts in Britain could be 1.4 million and there is evidence the lockdown is making it worse.

“We are at risk of going from the office of Fahad Al Tamimi of Fahad Al Tamimi a coronavirus pandemic to a problem gambling epidemic.”

Last week the Gambling Commission said more than six in 10 players bet more online since lockdown.

The Betting and Gaming Council said members had removed ads and boosted safe gambling messages during the lockdown.

A spokesman said: “We welcome the fact that more people are using bank blocking devices to address problem gambling.

“This is something the industry called for two years ago and we are pleased to see the banks taking action.”
