Mato Jelic’s YouTube chess channel dominates in Australia

ADELAIDE, South Australia, 2020-Oct-14 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — Chess is an exceptional mind game and it requires a large amount of skill and practice as well as the ability to create and implement effective strategies. In spite of being a discipline rooted in ancient times, nowadays chess lovers have a variety of modern tools for developing their skills and improving their level, including online resources. Free chess videos can teach you how to play chess like a champion in a very short period.

The use of online tools for learning chess has grown exponentially in the last few months as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. If schools like the Chess School of South Australia were extremely successful before the crisis, things have changed dramatically last autumn because of the lockdown and new social distancing rules. When the Covid-19 crisis hit South Australia, Mato Jelic, founder of the most popular chess school in the region, lost all his teaching contracts with schools and also all interschool chess tournaments were cancelled. His only income was from YouTube revenues, so he decided to focus on that.

At the same time, his real-life students still needed the mental exercise that chess provides, and an increasing number of Australians began to look for stimulating activities they could perform at home. This is how Mato’s YouTube chess channel, active since 2011, took off; as of October 2020, it has more than 140K subscribers and 87.5M lifetime views!

“You can learn how to attack aggressively to win or how to spot key quiet moves and still move in for the win,” reveals Mato Jelic, founder of Chess School of South Australia and the newest online chess star. Some of his videos have even more than 1M views and his most popular upload is about the greatest chess game ever played, between Garry Kasparov and Veselin Topalov in 1999.

When Magnus Carlsen, the current world champion, was launching his app – Tactics Frenzy – Mato was hired to promote it. “This app is addictive and will make you a strong player,” Mato warned his fans, who are already intensive users of his online chess tools and resources.

Mato is the founder and owner of Chess School SA, a leading provider of chess coaching services in Adelaide, South Australia. His YouTube channel is a great place for beginner and intermediate players to watch entertaining chess videos. The content focuses on categories such as the greatest chess games ever played, immortal chess games, the best games from the latest tournaments, old masters games, and free chess training.

U.S. Presidential Election Wagering Heats Up

San Jose, Costa Rica, 2020-Oct-08 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — The 2020 U.S. Presidential Election on Nov. 3 has already proven one of the most contentious in American politics’ history. From now until the first Tuesday in November, neither candidate, incumbent Donald Trump nor challenger Joe Biden, figures to become less combative. And local bookies have already taken a significant amount of bets from players; meaning this could be the most profitable election for independent bookmakers in US history according to Payperhead.com.

The Democrats’ dislike of Trump and Republicans’ fear for a Biden Presidency has already led to one of the most wagered upon Presidential Elections ever. On Sep. 1, a leading sportsbook accepted a massive over $67,000 wager on Donald Trump.

Although Biden remains the favorite, wagers like that have driven Trump’s odds down on sportsbook software platforms like PayPerHead. Since the large wager, Trump and Biden have had their first debate, Vice Presidential candidate Kamala Harris and Mike Pence have also debated, and President Trump has tested positive for the coronavirus.

A Supreme Court Justice Senate Confirmation Hearing and two more Presidential Debates could determine where wagering action lands before Election Day. The second debate between Trump and Biden is on Oct. 15, while the third organized verbal showdown takes place on Oct. 22.

In 2016, PayPerHead saw an uptick in U.S. Presidential Election betting about two weeks before American citizens headed to the polls. The wagering trends appear to be on a similar path with the bulk of election bets most likely happening in the fifteen or so days before the election, just like what happened four years ago.

In the last Presidential Election, Hillary Clinton held a percentage lead in the national polls with about two weeks to go. Clinton remained the favorite, but Trump gained more wagers the closer the U.S. got to choosing their next president. Overall wagering, bets on Clinton and Trump, also significantly increased in the final stretch before the election.

PayPerHead Product Manager Nate Johnson expects action in the final fifteen days before Nov. 3 to resemble what happened in 2016 with one caveat, PayPerHead doesn’t know where the action will land. Johnson said, “We saw action on Trump. This year could be different with players backing Biden. Not that our agents care…but they love all the action.”

“Bookie agents on the PayPerHead platform don’t care so much about where the action goes because they’ve got tools to manage action no matter which candidate their players prefer,” Johnson said. He added, “We expect a flood of wagers on our platform after the second debate. If Trump performs well, everyone will know he’s over the coronavirus. Hopefully, they both perform well, and our agents see action on both candidates.”

This Year’s NFL Season Could Be One For the Ages

San Jose, Costa Rica, 2020-Sep-09 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — Although questions about how COVID-19 will affect the NFL remain, most football fans, analysts, players and coaches have turned their attention to the start of the 2020 season. The defending Super Bowl Champion Kansas City Chiefs host the Houston Texans in the first official game on Thursday, September 10. From September 10 to January 3, the National Football League hopes to play seventeen weeks of uninterrupted football before turning their attention to the playoffs and the Super Bowl.

The new season means more to pay per head bookies than it may to anyone else other than NFL players. Even during years when the NCAA has a Men’s College Basketball Tournament, betting handle drops off 20% to 30% after football season.

Now that the NFL is back, bookies, especially, are excited about the upcoming season and Payperhead.com is seeing an increase in new agents. One experienced bookmaker said that 90% to 95% of his revenue comes from NFL betting. “I provide wagering services to fifteen people. They all bet on pro football. So, am I excited about the upcoming season? I’m enthralled!”

The coronavirus pandemic has already made the 2020 NFL Season unique. Many teams won’t play in front of fans. Teams that will allow fans, like the Atlanta Falcons, won’t play in front of full capacity stadiums. The lack of fans shouldn’t affect play on the field, as most people will be at home this winter watching the games across the country.

What could happen on the field is why so many are thrilled about this upcoming NFL season. It’s difficult to remember a time when an impact player like Tom Brady left his current team. Brady decided to leave the New England Patriots, a squad he won six Super Bowls with, to play for Bruce Arians and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Not only did Brady leave the Patriots but he ended up in the same division, the AFC South, as Drew Brees. The New Orleans Saints quarterback holds five NFL records. Brees and Brady face-off in Week 1 on Sunday, September 13.

Another quarterback battle has developed in the AFC. Kansas City’s Patrick Mahomes won the 2018 NFL MVP. The Baltimore Ravens’ Lamar Jackson won the 2019 award. Mahomes and Jackson are the favorites to win the 2020 Most Valuable Player Award. Also, their respective teams are the two favorites to win this year’s Super Bowl.

Tampa Bay and New Orleans in the NFC, along with the San Francisco 49ers and Dallas Cowboys, should spend all season jockeying for playoff positioning. In the AFC, the New England Patriots, who signed 2015 MVP Cam Newton to replace Brady, and Baltimore’s chief rival, the Pittsburgh Steelers, also figure to challenge for the conference championship.

As NFL Season Draws Closer, Bookies Switch to New Software Providers

San Jose, Costa Rica, 2020-Aug-20 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — Although the coronavirus pandemic represented a bump in the road, the Global Sports Betting Market is on track to reach $155.4 billion by 2024. The trajectory, which represents a compound growth rate (CAGR) of 8.8%, can mostly be attributed to a couple of sports. By far, international sports bettors wager on soccer. In the U.S., football is the players’ betting sport of choice.

As the online sports betting continues to grow more bookies are looking for more established software companies like Payperhead.com to grow their businesses. Pay per head agents, those who use bookie software to run their sportsbooks, can expect the NFL to generate 2020 revenue in line with what they saw in 2019. In some cases, this NFL Season may generate more since players remain hesitant about visiting brick and mortar betting establishments.

Every year, the National Football League’s annual Super Bowl attracts the most wagering dollars of any single event. In 2018, the Super Bowl generated $158 million in handle. Some sports bettors wager exclusively on NFL football games. Their biggest bet of the year is on the Super Bowl.

Although the Big Ten and Pac 12 won’t have football this fall, the SEC, ACC, and Big 12 will. Also, the NFL is on track to start their season on time in September. The lack of Big Ten and Pac 12 games should have a negligible effect on football betting numbers. Most sports handicappers will turn their attention to SEC, ACC, and Big 12 college games.

Some pph sportsbook agents have already started the push for football wagering dollars. One agent who wished to remain anonymous said that he sent out the NFL’s opt-out list to his players a day after the league released it to the public.

The National Football League told players that they had until August 6 to opt-out of playing in the upcoming season. Players were compensated either $150,000 or $350,000 depending on their opt-out reason. On August 7, a per head agent copied the list and emailed it to his players. “I wanted to give my players information that can help them plan for the season.”

Customer care isn’t the only thing the agent did. He recently switched pay per head software providers, moving to a shop that offered credit card transactions. “Some of my players didn’t want to meet in person. Now, all they must do is use the system to pay me via credit card. I can also make payouts directly to their cards, which makes them happy.”

Although credit card transactions were the most important aspect that led to the switch, the bookmaking agent said that wasn’t the lone reason. “My players don’t wager much on NBA and MLB. So, I didn’t see much of a change in revenue. But losing the NCAA Basketball Tournament was huge. That’s my second best profit generator.”

“I had to find a pay per head shop that made it easy for me to import my players and offered more than my current provider did,” the agent said.

The agent added, “I don’t mind paying a higher per head fee because I can’t take the chance. I’ve got to try and make up the lost college basketball tournament profit with football betting.”

Bookies Clamoring for Safe and Secure Ways to Collect and Get Paid from Players

San Jose, Costa Rica, 2020-Aug-07 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — After the U.S. Supreme Court struck down the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act in 2018, U.S. based organizations created online sportsbooks to compete with offshore sportsbooks, also called post-ups.

Now the times have changed and as the local bookie business starts to gain in popularity, so do the demands of satisfying the players. And it’s PayPerHead’s proprietary Agent Payment Solution that is making it safe, convenient and practical for bookies from all walks of life to manage and grow their businesses.

Individuals have also become online sportsbook owners. In addition, existing bookies have taken their operations to the Internet. In most cases, bookies have become “pay per head agents”. A pay per head agent uses software to run their online sportsbook company. But although the software does some things well, most pay per head software struggles to meet agent needs.

Bookies must figure out on their own how to collect or pay players. In a social distancing age, that can cause major delays and disruptions in a bookie’s sportsbook operation. Not only that, but bookies cannot compete with offshore post-ups because they must keep their services at a local level.

Created in 1997, PayPerHead, a leading pph sportsbook software provider, has developed a mobile online payment interface, the Agent Payment Solution (APS®). PayPerHead’s agents can pay or collect from players via the APS in a matter of seconds. The APS works like PayPal but unlike PayPal, agents that use the APS mustn’t pay exorbitant fees.

The social distancing advantages are obvious. PayPerHead Product Manager Nate Johnson, though, said that’s just one advantage the Agent Payment Solution provides.

Johnson explains that, “We want our agents to be safe first of all. And not only that, but the APS allows agents to expand their businesses. It’s a mobile agent and player payment system that allows our agents to say, ‘Hey, you can pay and get paid in the same way as any offshore post-up operation.’ That allows our agents to increase their player footprint, which means they grow their sportsbook businesses, which means they make more money. Also, they don’t have to be restricted to the same area and can recruit players in other ways.”

Johnson noted that players can send money to their agents via credit cards, Bitcoin, eCheck, and even Moneygram. He added that PayPerHead believes the APS will revolutionize the pph sportsbook industry with its seamless technology. “With the APS, it’s all about confidentiality and security. We’ve created the PayPal for our industry. The difference is that the APS doesn’t charge a fee for every transaction the way PayPal does. In addition, our agents can make as much money as they want because they can promote their sportsbooks to players all over the world if they wish.”

Also, Johnson said the Agent Payment Solution provides peace of mind. “It’s a great thing to know that you’re going to get paid safely and securely. We’re the first and only to come up with an answer to that question, the most important question that pay per head bookies have. With the Agent Payment Solution, all our customers must do is go onto the system, go to Pay Me, then continue to the payout process and that’s it.”

While major games dropped cases because of social separating conventions, sportsbooks are discovering approaches to keep players inside the action during this pandemic

Escazu, Costa Rica, 2020-Jul-04 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — With betting accessible on eSports, recreated sports, one-on-one rivalries, for example, boxing or tennis, horse dashing, computerized gambling club gaming, live vendor club, and even political decision results, individuals are as yet wagering as a type of entertainment.

Studies have demonstrated that during times of financial downturn, war, or emergencies, individuals go to diversion to ease tension and stress. Books, films, betting, computerized gaming, and internet based life are on the whole ways that individuals “look at” of their present reality, regardless of whether for only a couple of long stretches of relief.

Likewise, considers show that resigned grown-ups, whose every day exercises may be the most like jobless residents or residents who are protecting set up during social removing conventions, are bound to bet for incitement and for fatigue alleviation as opposed to for winning cash. In interviews, card sharks have shown that weariness is among the essential sparks for taking part in betting activity. With barely any games accessible to guess on nowadays, associations like PayPerhead.net, a sportsbook programming organization, have gotten progressively inventive in giving their clients the betting amusement their players crave. Simulated sports and eSports, two newcomers to the betting field of play, were at that point set to become multibillion-dollar enterprises some time before COVID-19 upset customary games betting. eSports (additionally called electronic games, e-sports, or Esports) is a type of rivalry by computer games.

Esports regularly appear as sorted out, multiplayer computer game rivalries, especially between proficient players, independently or as teams.

Unlike esports, which are constrained by people, reproduction sports are involved exclusively of games between a PC’s AI (man-made brainpower) and are commonly founded on customary games, for example, b-ball or football.

In expansion to the previously mentioned advanced occasions that speculators can wager on, PayPerHead bookies are likewise ready to offer pony race wagering, computerized gambling club gaming, and live seller club gaming on blackjack, baccarat or roulette.

Unlike conventional games wagering, the new advanced gaming, horse hustling, and online club gaming permit players to wager on a much lower financial plan, and can some of the time convey huge payouts. Therefore, PayPerHead.net bookmakers are seeing this downturn in sports wagering as extra invaluable, on the grounds that already sports-wagering just players are currently adding an entirely different collection to their standard betting activities.

As an ever increasing number of individuals look the web for job telecommute openings, new bookies are finding a totally different specialty in the online sportsbook and club industry. With unbelievable rate drops (PayPerHead.net is without offering administration until major U.S. sports start once more) during this coronavirus emergencies, presently is an incredible opportunity to start.

Absolutely “POSI+IVE”: Two-Spirit pop artist Tony Enos releases career defining album as a person openly living with HIV

Philadelphia, PA, USA, 2020-Jul-1 — /EPR Network/ — “I know faith can move mountains, and yes I’m absolutely positive.” That line alone from the title song of out pop icon Tony Enos’ 4th studio album encapsulates the past 14 years of his living with HIV.

Enos’ new album is called “POSI+IVE,” and it chronicles the Two-Spirit singer/songwriter/producer’s journey of thriving as a person living with HIV (PLWH) since his diagnosis in July of 2006. But the inspiration for the album didn’t come until Enos opened the United States Conference on AIDS on August 5th, 2019 in Washington, DC.

“Here I was in this amazing affirming space for PLWH, and I’m hiding this huge secret about myself from everyone,” admits Enos.

“Secrets keep you sick, and I’m tired of carrying it. It’s not doing anyone else any good by my hiding it. Least of all me.”

“POSI+TIVE” doesn’t hide anything. While the the record is positive and uplifting, and maintains a pop music genre labeling, “POSI+IVE” boasts an eclectic offering of acoustic love ballads, EDM, R&B, and New Country. Enos has masterfully penned songs about finding and losing love, navigating toxic relationships as a PLWH, self-worth, socio-political themes and issues, and of course thriving with HIV.

Writing and producing the entire album himself along with his assistant vocal producer and sister Vienna Enos, he is no slouch in the production area, and his impeccable vocal performance on this album is his finest yet.

While ballads like “Losing Season,” and “He Was So Beautiful,” show off a more vulnerable Enos, EDM tracks like “Based On A True Story,” and the timely acoustic-anchored “This Close To Freedom,” gives T-Bones the essentials they’re looking for.

At the heart of the album, it is driven by activism, empathy, pain and redemption, compassion, love, and – as the album’s closing track “Based On A True Story” states – “wind and fire, guts and glory.”

“From the moment I received my HIV diagnosis, I was living to die,” says Enos.

“It was years before I gave myself permission to live again.”

Scheduled to perform at the International Conference on AIDS, “AIDS 2020” this July, Enos said in interview footage for the performance, “If I can make the experience even a hairline easier for someone living with HIV, then it’s all worth it.”

“POSI+IVE,” is now available on iTunes and all your favorite digital music platforms!

PayPerHead Agents See Huge Uptick in Online Casino Gaming

San Jose, Costa Rica, 2020-Jun-10 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — PayPerHead.com, a sportsbook technology leader, wanted a grasp of how the sports shutdown affected online casino gaming.

The company’s revenue results showed that sports bettors turned to casino gaming in droves. Overall casino revenue rose from March 11, the day the NBA shut down their season, to the end of May.

The most significant percentage surge came via live dealer casinos. From January to May, PayPerHead.com’s live dealer casino segment saw a revenue increase of 317%. The growth percentage dwarfs the digital casino revenue increase of 185%.

The numbers suggest that live dealer casino play is growing on an accelerated trajectory. What could account for the difference in revenue growth percentages?

PayPerHead’s Product Manager Nate Johnson spoke about how live dealer casinos bring “Vegas-like excitement.” Per Johnson, “Sportsbook software allows players to stream live dealer games on their tablets and mobile phones. Digital casinos use animation, and its cool animation. But many casino players still crave the human element.”

“Numbers don’t lie. If you’re a PayPerHead agent that doesn’t offer a live dealer casino, add it to your offerings. Las Vegas may never be the same. And, I’ll put our dealers up against any dealer you find in a brick and mortar casino,” Johnson said.

The biggest question is whether the growth in both digital casino and live dealer casino play will continue after the pandemic. Here again, it’s good news for PayPerHead agents.

PayPerHead’s revenue stats imply that sports shutdowns didn’t cause an upward trend and that the growth in casino play won’t stop anytime soon. The uptick in digital casino handle rose from $63.519M in January to $93.323M in February. From February to March, the digital casino handle rose to $110.758M.

Handle in PayPerHead.com agent run live dealer casinos rose from $9.95M in January to $12.02M in February to $22.82M in March. The numbers imply that casino play, both digital and live dealer, should continue to rise even after regular sports return. The growth trend should remain intact well into 2021 and beyond. Johnson said that when sports return, it may help raise casino gaming revenue. “Sports bettors wager on casino games while casino players don’t always wager on sports. If anything, PayPerHead agents are likely to see an uptick in all gaming segments once major US sports return.”

About PayPerHead:
Founded in 1997, PayPerHead is the industry’s leading online sportsbook software provider. The company prides itself on being a sports betting tech leader and customer-centric organization. Currently, PayPerHead provides sportsbook software solutions to over 15,000 bookies with over 75,000 players.

Matvil Corp. Continues Its Fight Against Illegal Actions of the Legal System of Moldova

A case of intellectual rights dispute sheds light on the corrupt legal system of Moldova

TORONTO, Canada, 2020-May-15 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — As one of the leading online ethnic TV providers, operating in North America, Matvil Corp. discovered, there is no reliable system in place that protects legal broadcasters from dishonest competition. In their attempts to enter the US and Canadian markets, Internet pirates commit fraud and manipulate data in order to influence the corrupt legal system of Eastern European countries and try to destabilize operations of successful companies, cause financial damage and hurt their reputation.

The case Radio Star Ltd. against Matvil Corp. is a vivid proof of such practices.

On June 8, 2018, Radio Star Ltd. filed a lawsuit against Matvil Corp. in the court of Chisinau, Moldova, stating that the latter illegally broadcasted a number of Russian and Ukrainian channels on the territory of Moldova.

It should be noted right away that in support of its demands, Radio Star (Moldova), knowingly and deliberately used various methods to circumvent technical protection measures undertaken by Matvil Corp., and subsequently presented them as evidence. Using ExpressVPN program, accomplices or employees of Radio Star (Moldova), (which in this case is a media “pirate”), physically located in the Republic of Moldova, created user accounts and, using American IP addresses, with location in New Jersey, USA, registered on the Matvil Corp website, thereby creating the illusion of receiving services offered by the company.

It should be clarified that ExpressVPN program is a virtual tunnel that virtually changes the physical location of a computer or other electronic device, assigning this device a virtual IP address, indicating a virtual location anywhere in the world (at the choice of the user of this program), while physically, the electronic device is located in its territorial space.

Matvil Corp is a respectable media provider that provides online TV broadcasting services in Canada and the United States. Subscription access to the service for users from the countries of former USSR and Russia is strictly prohibited and unavailable.

However, malicious desire for illegal enrichment pushes such adversaries as Radio Star (Moldova) to resort to illegal actions, falsification, fraud and the commission of crimes using IT technologies.

Moreover, as it became known already in the framework of the trial, Radio Star (Moldova) does not have exclusive rights at all to broadcast Russian and Ukrainian television channels in the territory of the Republic of Moldova. Radio Star (Moldova) is just an agent for the distribution and conclusion of contracts with the end consumer and with a limited duration of contractual agreements.

In addition, Matvil Corp did not receive any claims from the copyright holders, and Radio Star (Moldova) did not provide any evidence that authority was granted by the copyright holders to protect their interests.

Despite all of the above, on January 18, 2019, Chisinau Court of First Instance, Judge Oksana Parfeni, ruled in favor of Radio Star, accepting all their fabricated evidence as reliable, but denied Matvil Corp representatives the right to hear IT experts / specialists and also denied the right to hear those persons who allegedly gained access to the service.

If the court were objective and impartial, then these adversaries would be asked only one question: “For what reason and why did they use ExpressVPN program, used American IP addresses, with location in New Jersey, USA, and did not try to log in on Matvil Corp website under valid Moldovan IP addresses? ”

On February 2, 2019 lawyer Matvil Corp appealed the decision of the first instance, however, even here Matvil Corp had to face partiality.

On April 5, 2019, that is, after 2 months, Chisinau Appeal Chamber issued a Decision, which decided to return the appeal because it was filed by an unauthorized person. The reason for this decision was a banal and completely illegal motive: the power of attorney issued to the company’s lawyer was allegedly not legalized in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Moldova.

It should be noted that this Decision was not sent to Matvil Corp lawyers until May 15, 2019 (apparently it was concealed in order to have the appeal dates expire). Only after applying with an official statement and demanding to indicate at what stage the filed appeal was, the court deigned to issue this Decision.

On the same day, May 15, 2019, the lawyer filed a protest against the Decision dated April 5, 2019, where it was decided to return the appeal, and on June 6, 2019, the Higher Trial Chamber of the Republic of Moldova ruled that the power of attorney was legal, and therefore obliged the Appeals Chamber to consider on its own merits the appeal about the decision of the first instance of the Court.

Thus, the first ray of hope for the objectivity and honesty of the Moldovan Judicial System appeared.

November 14, 2019 – The Appeal Court acknowledged the fact that Radio Star (Moldova) does not have any exclusive rights to broadcast TV programs and does not have the authority to protect the interest of copyright holders and, as a result, reversed the decision of the first instance and dismissed adversaries’ lawsuit.

It seemed as though that justice has triumphed!!!

However, the miracles of the legal / judicial system of Moldova continued.

Just by accident and thanks to the vigilance of the lawyers, it became known that Radio Star submitted cassation appeal to the Supreme Court of Justice on January 14, 2020.

This information appeared on the court’s website, but until today, neither Matvil Corp nor the company’s lawyer have received a copy of this complaint and have not been officially informed of its existence.

Moreover, on March 18, 2020 this complaint has already passed the admissibility procedure, and the review itself is scheduled for May 20, 2020 and, what is noteworthy, without the participation of the parties!

This series of non-compliance with the requirements of the Law by the system itself, which was created to protect it, shows that it serves the interests of a certain group of people.

Using the Moldovan judicial system, unscrupulous competitors try to destabilize the business and cause serious financial and reputational damage to American and Canadian companies that do not conduct and did not intend on conducting business in Moldova.

PayPerHead® Sportsbook Software Helps Online Bookies Stay in Business

San Jose, Costa Rica, 2020-May-12 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — Major U.S. Sportsbooks saw betting numbers cut in half year over year in March 2020, as the coronavirus pandemic swept the nation, putting a stop to major events, including sports.

Normally one of the busiest months in the betting industry, the American Gaming Association estimates that profits for the brick and mortar gambling hubs have taken a financial hit of approximately 60% overall, and well over 500,000 workers have been affected.

Joe Asher, CEO of William Hill U.S., which operates sportsbooks in Nevada, New Jersey, and several other states told ESPN, “I do not see a scenario where [the pandemic] goes on sort of too long and somehow the industry withers away… The fundamentals of the sports betting business are pretty strong.”

PayPerHead and the Sportsbook owners that partner with them understand that the single most important fundamental of sports betting is entertainment. In response, they have become increasingly creative in providing their customers with the gambling entertainment their players crave.

The upside is, independent bookmakers are discovering that their clients who normally only wager on sports are becoming more and more engaged in digital offerings such as iRacing, eSports, casino gaming, and simulated sports. Essentially, this pandemic is creating a whole new kind of bettor.

Nate Johnson, Product Manager at PayPerHead® said, “Gone are the days that sports bettors will go into hibernation the day after Superbowl. This [coronavirus pandemic] has been rough, but it’s also got a silver lining. Our agents are turning their players into horse bettors, eSports enthusiasts, iRacing bettors, sim sports fans, and casino gamers. Those bettors won’t just walk away from all that when sports start up again; now they’ll be cross-platform players.”

Indeed, it seems clear that independent online gaming is growing exponentially in the face of the pandemic, and existing bookies and new agents alike are discovering that they can have a viable and lucrative home business by using a turnkey sportsbook operating system like that offered by PayPerHead.

In fact, many new bookmakers who may have hesitated to get into the business before are getting started now, and “doing quite well,” according to Johnson.

PayPerHead made an unprecedented move in response to the pandemic, offering its software services free of charge until major U.S. sports return. Says Johnson of PayPerHead’s offering, “It’s a pretty good start-up opportunity for a new agent; you can’t beat free. Bookies can test the waters and get their new business off the ground. With no deposit required and free access to all the prime features of the system, new agents can just concentrate on building their player base and making money, without any of the overhead costs normally associated with starting an online sportsbook ”

Despite No Sports, PayPerHead® Keeps Players In Action

San Jose, Costa Rica, 2020-Apr-30 — /EPR Network/ — While major sporting events have been canceled across the board due to social distancing protocols, sportsbooks are finding ways to keep players in action.

With wagering available on eSports, simulated sports, one-on-one competitions such as boxing or tennis, horse racing, digital casino gaming, live dealer casino, and even election results, people are still betting as a form of entertainment.

Studies have shown that during times of economic recession, war, or crises, people turn to entertainment to ease anxiety and stress. Books, films, gambling, digital gaming, and social media are all ways that people “check out” of their current reality, even if for just a few hours of relief.

Likewise, studies indicate that retired adults, whose daily activities might be the most similar to unemployed citizens or citizens who are sheltering in place during social distancing protocols, are more likely to gamble for stimulation and for boredom relief rather than for winning money. In interviews, gamblers have indicated that boredom is among the primary motivators for engaging in gambling activity

With few sports available to speculate on these days, organizations like PayPerhead, a sportsbook software company, have become increasingly creative in providing their customers with the gambling entertainment their players crave.

Simulated sports and eSports, two newcomers to the gambling field of play, were already set to become multibillion-dollar industries long before COVID-19 disrupted traditional sports betting.

eSports (also called electronic sports, e-sports, or Esports) is a form of competition by video games. Esports often take the form of organized, multiplayer video game competitions, particularly between professional players, individually or as teams.

Unlike esports, which are controlled by humans, simulation sports are comprised solely of games between a computer’s AI (artificial intelligence) and are typically based on traditional sporting events such as basketball or football.

In addition to the above mentioned digital events that gamblers can bet on, PayPerHead bookies are also able to offer horse race betting, digital casino gaming, and live dealer casino gaming on blackjack, baccarat or roulette.

Unlike traditional sports betting, the new digital gaming, horse racing, and online casino gaming allow players to bet on a much lower budget, and can sometimes deliver big payouts. For that reason, PayPerHead bookmakers are finding this downturn in sports betting to be extra advantageous, because previously sports-betting-only players are now adding a whole new repertoire to their regular gambling activities.

As more and more people search the internet for work from home opportunities, new bookies are finding a whole new niche in the online sportsbook and casino industry. With unheard-of rate drops (PayPerHead is offering free service until major U.S. sports start again) during this coronavirus crises, now is a great time to start.

PayPerHead® Steps Up To Help Small Business Owners

SAN JOSE, Costa Rica, 2020-Apr-15 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — In response to the coronavirus pandemic, organizations around the world are exploring relief efforts to assist freelancers, entrepreneurs and small business owners that are being financially hit by the COVID-19 crisis. PayPerHead® is one such organization.

While businesses outside of the healthcare sector are producing hand sanitizer, masks and other supplies to help stop the spread of the virus, many software and tech companies are doing what they can to help keep the economy afloat by putting into place deep price cuts and educational content. As a result, they are helping mass numbers of the newly unemployed build home businesses and work online.

PayPerHead®, a sportsbook software company based out of San Jose, Costa Rica, is a Software as a Service (SaaS) organization that is making big strides in helping people start a new business that can weather this storm or stay alive in an industry they are already part of.

While major sporting events have been cancelled across the board due to social distancing protocols, sportsbooks are finding ways to keep players in action. With wagering available on eSports, one-on-one competitions such as boxing or tennis, horse racing, casino gaming, and even election results, people are still betting as a form of entertainment.

Slashing rates to zero, PayPerHead® recently announced that all of their services, except those that entail outside software costs, will be offered to bookie agents free of charge until the first major sporting event begins again, or by September 1, 2020, whichever comes first.

Market research has positioned the pay per head sportsbook and casino industry to eclipse $155 billion by 2024. “If ever there was a good time to seek out an industry that can survive an economic downturn, now is it.” said Nate Johnson, Product Manager at PayPerHead®. “We know that times are tough, but we’ve been down this road before. When businesses were going bankrupt during the housing crisis of 2008, we stayed in the game. We’ll do it again and we’ll help others to do it too.”

Integrated Services Monitoring by Bridge Technologies addresses the multiple layers of the broadcast and media cycle

OSLO, 23-Mar-2020 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — Bridge Technologies today announced ISM – Integrated Services Monitoring, an all-embracing suite of tools, designed to deliver invaluable insights into the performance of content production, contribution and distribution networks not only for engineers charged with day-to-day operations but for management to assess the overall performance of the operation.

Integrated Services Monitoring is an approach to quality that addresses the multiple layers of the broadcast and media cycle – from production through signal acquisition, contribution streams, OTT/streaming media, traditional broadcast distribution with DTT or Satellite to picture archiving.

“ISM provides exactly the set of data gathering tools broadcasters need throughout the chain – from production to delivery, uncompressed to compressed.” said Simen K. Frostad, Chairman, Bridge Technologies. “No other company in the network monitoring and analysis space can offer such a complete, comprehensive set of automated capabilities that deliver such a high level of understanding throughout any content distribution chain.”

Bridge Technologies’ extensive product offering ranges from embedded systems and software-based probes to software control systems that support all currently commercial available standards and media formats, all designed to deliver in-depth, intuitive understanding of the end-to-end broadcast process.

Integrated Services Monitoring enables a unique, pre-integrated approach to the most complex tasks facing the modern broadcaster, putting automated eyeballs on all acquisition, delivery and production media streams – all from a single vendor, avoiding the need for complex bespoke engineering.

A turnkey, easy-to-install, complete media monitoring system that spans the whole media chain, Integrated Services Monitoring supports SD, HD, UHD and even 8K; it encompasses contribution streams using various encapsulation techniques including TS-encapsulated JPEG2K and SRT in addition to traditional IPTV; it embraces the modern headend with signal acquisition from terrestrial and satellite sources; and it includes pre-demodulation signal analytics, pre- and post-encoding analytics for IPTV, cable delivery and Remote PHY as well as pre- and post-transcoding to origin for OTT distribution, monitored using QoE parameters such as MOS scores. All data is recorded for instant retrieval in an easy to use visual timeline or formatted as PDF reports that are automatically generated and emailed to whoever needs them.

“Integrated Services Monitoring represents the accumulation of our 15+ years of experience in developing, manufacturing and deploying the most advanced solutions to ensure the maximum uptime of content production, contribution and distribution networks around the world,” Frostad continued. “From the network engineer on a remote site to personnel at the master control centre (MCR) who need visibility into everything that’s going on to management who require SLAs and other insightful indicators of overall network performance, Integrated Services Monitoring is there to deliver what they need, when they need it.”

Integrated Services Monitoring is a further instantiation of Bridge Technologies’ innovative approach to leveraging the inherent value of content data passing through the network: once the data has been ‘acquired’ by a probe, it can be put to multiple uses.

Take, for example, the VBC top level system as part of the ISM structure,” added Frostad. “It’s a management system that, by adding a single IP address to a remote probe, immediately starts the collection of massive amounts of data right into the database. That’s very powerful – suddenly all the advanced reporting and analysis comes automatically.”

This has also seen Bridge Technologies introduce its award-winning Widglets™ API for the VB440 probe. Using Widglets, video monitoring can be embedded within any HTML code – making it available to anyone connected via a web browser, wherever they are. The API is already allowing companies to achieve highly efficient functionality in remote production that was previously unimaginable.

Bassist, Ronnie Turner
Ronnie is a native of Gulfport, MS who is no stranger to Souled Out having performed with the group occasionally over the past three years. “Ronnie’s style of playing was a perfect fit for what we were looking for in a bass player. This incarnation of our rhythm section very well may be one of the best I’ve ever played with!”

Saxophone, Kyle Gambino
Kyle, a Lafayette, LA native, has been performing sporadically with Souled Out since 2018. When the impending departure of longtime saxophonist Ryan Lottinger needing to be addressed, it was a natural progression. “I’ve known Kyle since we were music majors at UL so I knew that his experience, musicianship and love for performing would be a great addition to our horn section.”

Trumpet, Zach “Fatty” Broussard
Zach (or “Fatty” as he’s affectionately named) returned to the Souled Out stage in the summer of 2019. This Erath, LA native previously performed with Souled Out from 2006-2013. “I am so happy to see Zach’s return “home” and he has such a passion for what we do here in Souled Out.

Vocalist, Damon Davis
Damon, hailing from Baton Rouge, LA, found his path to Souled Out paved a few years ago while with another band. “Several years ago, our horn section had done some show dates with Damon’s previous band, Mojeaux. I admired Damon as a very talented vocalist/performer and that impression didn’t go unnoticed…or forgotten. When the idea of possibly adding another vocalist to Souled Out, I reached out to Damon. He’s been captivating audiences ever since and we’re excited for what the future holds.”

These new additions combined with the other Souled Out mainstays: Lynell Cyprian (lead vocals), Dave Mouton (saxophones), Blake Guidry (keyboards/vocals), Glenn Zeringue (guitar) and Dave Clayton (sound engineer) are excited to celebrate twenty years of Souled Out and lead the way into the next decade!

KZ TANDINGAN SUPREME WORLD TOUR SHOW AT CULLEN PERFORMANCE HALL, HOUSTON 9/28/2019 CANCELLED

HOUSTON, Texas, 2019-Sep-28 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — Cornerstone Entertainment, Inc. released an “Official Statement” informing the public that “it will no longer push through with KZ Tandingan’s U.S. shows” including the show in Houston, Texas on September 28, 2019 “due to promoter’s (JRC) – failure to comply with its obligations, protocol and show requirements.” This public statement was the first notice of any kind Happy Owl Productions, who was producing and organizing the Houston show, received related to any potential cancellation or issues regarding obligations or show requirements. Happy Owl Productions was looking forward to the show and had fulfilled all obligations related to the venue and hosting of the event. Unfortunately, a number of failures by tour promoter, Jimmy Reyes Cruz (aka “Jemalicious”) or (“JRC”) based on statements provided by Cornerstone Entertainment Inc. (“Cornerstone”) forced the show’s cancellation. Apparently, as occurred with prior dates on the tour, JRC failed to cover certain expenses it was obligated to cover, including travel, and also failed to secure proper visas for entry into the United States. Happy Owl Productions paid additional amounts in a last-minute attempt to make sure the Houston show would happen, but circumstances outside its control forced cancellation and it has been left with substantial expenses for a show that will no longer occur. As other event producers have announced (including Edren Entertainment, who was producing the cancelled San Jose and Stockton shows) Happy Owl Productions will be pursuing all available legal remedies as to Jimmy Reyes Cruz / JRC and other responsible parties. Happy Owl Productions apologizes to fans who were looking forward to the Houston KZ show and is working to ensure full refunds will be provided to ticket purchasers.

PARIS, 11-Sep-2019 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — Fight To Fame, the first blockchain-based sports entertainment platform paving new paths to fame for action superstars, today announces Fight To Fame Europe, combining the search for up-and-coming action stars with a growing network of local media and entertainment partnerships. Fight To Fame is creating the future of sports entertainment, powered by a blockchain-based platform to fuel everything from global fan engagement to fair and more transparent monetization opportunities for fighters.

With the backing of world champions like South Africa’s Chris Van Heerden—and more to be announced—the company is leading a worldwide talent competition to uncover the next generation of best-in-breed fighters. The European expansion includes the appointment of two new executives who will play strategic roles in the entertainment and finance components of the platform.

French producer Philippe Diaz, Chairman of Cinema Libre Studio, joins Fight To Fame as Chief Executive Officer of Film Committee. In addition to his long legacy of international film production and distribution experience in Europe and Hollywood, Diaz will help bring Fight To Fame’s vision to life through a production partnership with Cinema Libre, an award-winning independent studio. Cinema Libre will help secure roles for Fight To Fame’s winners in upcoming action films, and ensure a strong distribution and marketing strategy to fast-track the new talent to stardom. “It’s incredibly exciting to take part in something so unprecedented—especially in my hometown of Paris. I’m looking forward to being part of the Fight To Fame journey, and launching new talent into the spotlight with films that can really showcase their skills,” said Diaz.

Aaron Brill joins Fight To Fame as Chairman of European Operations. Brill’s expertise in finance began at World Savings and Loan in the 1990s and has continued into some of the world’s largest financial institutions, including JP Morgan and Wells Fargo. He also was instrumental in growing one of the largest privately held wholesale mortgage banks in the US, with annual closings surpassing $3 billion. Said Brill, “I’m excited to join the Fight To Fame team and help realize their vision of the BMS—or Blockchain-Movies-Sports—business model. I’ve long believed in the power of blockchain to fuel the next great cultural revolution. Applications like that of Fight To Fame stand not only to transform how we conduct business, but how we come together as a global community to solve shared challenges.”

Said Tim Smithe, Spokesperson and Chairman of Global Operations for Fight To Fame: “We couldn’t be more pleased to welcome Philippe and Aaron to the Fight To Fame family, and harness their respective talents and expertise to realize our vision. They represent a veritable one-two punch in helping us highlight the next generation of Jackie Chans and Stallones and ensure our platform’s technology delivers on its intended benefits.”

Beyond the talent competition, Fight To Fame’s greater mission is to foster new opportunities for people around the world and from all walks of life. The company has also teased its plans for additional components to its business model, including a reality TV show, eSports gaming, and additional entertainment partnerships to be revealed at a later date.

This European expansion is a major milestone in growing the company’s global footprint as it prepares to kick off its search for the next big action film star in Europe.
