BGC calls for updates to ‘outdated’ payment regulations August 21, 2020 Share Submit StumbleUpon UK gambling adopts toughest online advertising code to protect underage audiences August 27, 2020 The Betting and Gaming Council (BGC) has welcomed the decision made by the Scottish Government to reopen casinos and bingo halls from 24 August.First Minister Nicola Sturgeon announced the latest easing of the country’s coronavirus lockdown in a statement to the Scottish Parliament, confirming that betting shops will be permitted to switch their gaming machines back on from the same date.Commenting on the news, Michael Dugher, chief executive of the BGC, said: “We are delighted that casinos and bingo halls in Scotland have finally been given a date to re-open.“They have demonstrated their commitment to ensuring the safety of their staff and customers, and it’s great that this has been recognised by the Scottish Government.“We’re already looking forward to casinos in England opening their doors again this weekend, and I hope that their Welsh colleagues will soon be receiving the same good news.“I’m also very pleased that the Scottish Government has listened to our concerns about betting shops having to switch off their gaming machines. It’s great that they will be back on again from 24 August.”The announcement follows on from concerns raised by the BGC over uncertainty as to when casinos could reopen, with the lack of clarity putting more than 800 jobs at risk.Casinos in England are due to reopen from 1 August, having put in place a range of measures to ensure the safety of staff and customers. The measures include Perspex screens, hand sanitisation equipment, track and tracing mechanisms and strict social distancing measures.

Cubs manager Joe Maddon wanted to get after Pirates manager Clint Hurdle in the fourth inning Thursday, but he didn’t have the proper technique to do so.After Hurdle seemed to chirp at Maddon following an up-and-in pitch to Chicago star Javier Baez, umpire Joe West ejected Maddon for his vocal retort from the dugout. That prompted Maddon to rush onto the field and charge his counterpart. But Maddon, 65, does not have the moves he used to. With West holding him back — and Hurdle staring him down — Maddon attempted a spin maneuver to break free. It didn’t work.Rather than opening a lane to Hurdle, Maddon went backward, resembling an interpretive dancer more than a fighter.

No doubt the skipper will hear from his players once they watch the clip following the contest.The Cubs did open up a big lead shortly after the incident, and since they’d lost four straight entering Thursday, Maddon is unlikely to regret his miscalculation.
