But that table doesn’t give the full competitive picture across the US. In each state, there are also local and regional players, often in partnership with local casino interests, that means the picture is far more nuanced than a simple market access tally might suggest. I think the metrics might change as we keep progressing towards more states opening up, but definitely, Colorado highlights how it won’t just be five national brands fighting it out. Each market will be more complex than that.” Of the bullet points, three are related to state-by-state access. These included the potential for new state legislation, new launches for DraftKings and the ramping of existing state operations. While Colorado might be the very definition of a bun fight and might make it difficult for smaller operators to catch their share of the sunlight, that won’t always be the case either state-by-state or regionally. It has always been obvious that state-by-state sports-betting legislation would necessitate a patchwork of markets across the US but the economics of accessing each of those markets is little discussed, writes Scott Longley Email Address But there are also a number of second-line brands and more local entities such as Circa Sports Carousel Group, BetWildwood also competing in a state which, by any measure, is small. Online sports betting handle in August came in at $126.7m and translated to gross gaming revenue of just $7.3m. “If a regional sports betting brand has good demographics, fair pricing, and a convenient, customer friendly approach they stand a very good chance of being successful,” says English. It highlights how the economic calculations of access to each state can be quite brutal. Whatever else the Caesars Entertainment buyout of William Hill might say about the direction of the US gaming sector from this point, it also highlights how market access in the US has become a huge driver as state-by-state regulation gains momentum. Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter “it’s all about the economics of access,” says Neale Deeley, vice-president of US sales and gaming at Sportradar. “In the initial flush of post-PASPA openings, it was just all about getting up and running in New Jersey and that was relatively simple. There were lots of existing licensees and lots of skins available. But that’s not the case elsewhere.” Topics: Finance Legal & compliance Sports betting The case for having access across multiple states in the US is neatly encapsulated in the list of seven catalysts that analysts at Macquarie put forward in their recently published bull case for DraftKings. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Mountain lionsThe list of licensees in Colorado highlights the argument. In total there are 15 online licensees and a further 10 land-based operators. Of these, many are national brands such as BetMGM, DraftKings, FanDuel and William Hill. “If you want to be a truly national brand, then you need to be in every state,” says Kevin Vonasek, a consultant with Vonasek Gaming. “And if you miss a key state, then it will make it much harder to position yourself.” Finance Among the many salient figures involved in the £2.9bn ($3.75bn) deal, it is the 25 states that the William Hill US sportsbook potentially has access to in the US which is perhaps the key figure. Indeed, this table has been updated by us to demonstrate, perhaps, why the Caesars bid for William Hill is so attractive on paper, given the new 25-state tally it would give Caesars. The goal is national coverage even if access is partial. “As states legalize, we believe DraftKings will be able to improve customer acquisition costs through national marketing (cheaper than local) and DFS cross-sell,” analyst Chad Beynon wrote. 7th October 2020 | By contenteditor Count the statesIndeed, if access were to be the sole determinant of success in the sportsbetting and online gaming sector, then the market would already be sown up. A table produced by Jefferies showed the degree to which the bigger gaming entities in the US have a head start when it comes states where they already have a regulated presence. “Clearly, some states are going to be worth fighting over more than others,” says Deeley. “Everyone is in Colorado because they can be and the fact is the state is quite early to sports-betting. John English, president at WeBe Gaming, agrees that “creativity comes into play.” Regions: US As he points out, as a DFS operator DraftKings has already spent upwards of $150m on marketing since 2015. Access all areas? The US state-by-state competition “But there will still be plenty of companies that will succeed in a select number of states and will reach enough consumers,” he adds. Scott Longley has been a journalist since the early 2000s, covering personal finance, sport and gambling. He has worked for a number of publications including Investment Week, Bloomberg Money, Football First, eGaming Review and Gambling Compliance. Scott now runs his own editorial consultancy, Clear Concise Media, and writes for a number of online and print titles. He adds: “The US is a big territory and there is plenty of room to play for both the big guys and the start-ups. Competition and fresh blood is good, we are not at a saturation point as of yet,” he says.

Funds were misappropriated when a trustee took over sole control of a charity, according to a Charity Commission inquiry.The inquiry into Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Rescue & Welfare was launched after the Commission received a complaint from the executor of a will concerning a legacy of £382,460 that had been left to the charity in 2005 and had not been recorded in the charity’s accounts.The inquiry found that while there were three trustees, only one of the trustees (the founder) was in control of the charity’s finances, and that the funds had been misappropriated for personal benefit after the other trustees moved away and the founding trustee effectively took over the sole control of the charity and its affairs.In fact, two legacies of £382,460 and £44,957 had been placed in several bank accounts held in the name of the founding trustee and a second person who was not a trustee. The inquiry also established that part of the donations were used to invest in properties not owned by the charity.Under the Charities Act 2011, the Commission froze six bank accounts where the funds had been moved to, which enabled it to protect £378,000 of the money. The other trustees then took steps to recover a substantial amount of the misappropriated funds from the founder, while the inquiry also saw the Commission refer its concerns and evidence to the police.The regulator found that the actions of the founding trustee amounted to misconduct and mismanagement in the administration of the charity. The other trustees had also failed to adequately and fully discharge their duties as charity trustees.However, in the report, the Commission acknowledges that the charity is now back on track after the other trustees acted to address its regulatory concerns. The trustees took control of the charity and its finances, recruited additional trustees and sought legal assistance, which enabled them to recover a substantial amount of the misappropriated funds. Around £300,000 has been recovered, with assurances that a further £120,000 has been repaid by the founding trustee.Michelle Russell, director of investigations, monitoring and enforcement at the Charity Commission, said:“All trustees share the same duties and responsibilities and must not let one trustee have sole control of the charity’s funds and activities. This is a shocking case where donors’ legacies were misappropriated and abused for private gain. Our regulatory guidance makes clear that it is trustees who are under a duty wherever possible to recover charity funds that have been misappropriated and this is what happened here.”The Commission’s policy on restitution and recovery of charitable funds lost to charity in breach of trust is available on its website, along with The Essential Trustee: What you need to know (CC3) which is published on the Commission’s website.The full Commission report is available on GOV.UK.

Those examples aren’t predictions, they simply show what a fictional ‘average’ store in that state could do if its sales increased at the level of current mid-tier or top-performing E15 & flex fuel retailers,” said Lamberty. “The Roadmap isn’t meant to be a ‘how-to,” it’s more of a “maybe you can.” On this website, we’ve added a feature that station owners or managers can use to plug in their own numbers – actual current gasoline volume, and different fuel and inside sales margins – to see the potential of higher blends, and help them decide if they want to take a closer look at offering their customers some new fuel choices.”Lamberty notes that the website’s state-by-state profiles feature important stats for c-store owners and operators including the number of flex-fuel stations, flex-fuel and total vehicles registered in the state and a comparison of those numbers to show the potential demand per state for E15 and E85 volume and stations.
