iGaming bonus abuse in focus at next AGB Webinar

Asia Gaming Brief’s seventh edition of the AGB Webinar Series will look into one of
the biggest problems facing Asia’s iGaming industry of recent.
“With sports betting restarting we are now seeing traffic levels return to pre-COVID
levels,” said Matthew Ingman of TransUnion.
“The same is unfortunately true for fraudulent activities as operators tempt players,
both new and existing, with lucrative bonuses and attractive game offerings.”
Bonus abuse in iGaming rose approximately 72 percent in 2019, according to
The upcoming AGB Webinar, set for Wednesday, 21 October 2020 at 1 pm HKT,
will include real case studies from operators who have unknowingly fallen into the
hands of fraudsters and bonus abusers.

We explore:
• The most prevalent iGaming fraud and abuse trends
• How these frauds impact iGaming operators
• The most proven ways to detect and prevent bonus abuse
• Account takeover, fake/multiple account creations
• Detecting suspicious activity – Geolocation, Proxies, and Emulators
Registration for the webinar is free. So sign up today.

AGB Members will have access to an exclusive breakout session following the
webinar. To inquire about membership, go to agbrief.com/membership or email Asia

It’s filled to the brim with so much goodness that you won’t be able to finish even a small pan in one sitting. Overflowing with sumptuous goodness is a usual description.

The Uni Scallops Aburi Sushi Bake is filled with sweet and briny uni, premium kani, uni cream sauce, seasoned rice, and topped with scallops, uni, crunch & ebiko then torched to bring out the sweet smoky aroma and umami flavors.  Eat it with seaweeds or on its own!

A Happier Life with Jen

They say that it is when you are at your weakest that you will truly know how strong you really are as a person. This couldn’t be more true for Jen, a former corporate gal who suddenly found herself in the middle of fighting Stage 1 Breast Cancer while transitioning from corporate to solo business.

Jen is one of those people who has a pure heart. Always armed with a smile, Jen just wanted what everyone else did in life: good things for herself, her family, and the people around her. When the news of the breast cancer arrived, instead of dwelling on the why, she focused on how she can better herself to combat this disease so that she can be there for the people that mattered most.

What Jen discovered via Life Science changed her life. Finding out that food can be medicine was something that she didn’t know. When she made the switch to a healthier, more organic lifestyle, Jen discovered that her body became better inside which lead to her becoming healthier on the outside.

A no sugar, no soy, gluten-free, no dairy, and only lean meats diet worked best for her and so she adapted this to her daily life and her family’s meal plan. The results were amazing and so she and her whole family has wholeheartedly embraced the organic lifestyle, from food to drinks and even the soap that they use.

A Happier Life with Jen is a way to help spread awareness on healthy options that are available through her shop and be able to help other people overcome their health issues through the products that she has personally tried and tested. She personally checks the ingredients to make sure that everything is good for the body before including a product to her shop.

Jen is very hands-on from choosing a product to actual delivery so customers need not worry. She also uses the products that she sells to ensure that there are no unwanted effects and everything works the way that it should.

Jen’s favorite is Gerry’s Guyabano juice, Jasmine Red Rice, and Bakku2BasikCoco Cider Soap. The guyabano juice is very good for the body while the red rice is a healthier alternative to white rice. Softer and easier to digest, red rice is a better option for white rice. The Bakku2Basik Coco Cider Soap is good for both face and body since it’s gentle on the skin.

All products carried by A Happier Life with Jen is meant to do just that, bring you a healthier, happier lifestyle to allow you to enjoy life to the fullest. When you buy a product from her store, you’re not just buying a product. You are buying something that will help you lead and build a better, healthier, stronger, and happier you.

Lamudi Philippines Welcomes New CEO

Lamudi Philippines CEO, Kenneth Stern

Lamudi Philippines welcomes Kenneth Stern to spearhead the company’s overall operations as CEO, succeeding Bhavna Suresh who served the property platform for four years.

Kenneth Stern, the former country manager of RE/MAX Philippines, a global real estate franchise, is the new CEO of Lamudi Philippines. Kenneth takes the helm from Bhavna Suresh, who has served the company for four years.

“I’m excited to hand over the baton to Ken. He knows the real estate industry very well and I’m sure that he will stay true to the values that made Lamudi Philippines a success,” Suresh said. “I’m looking forward to seeing the company rise to even greater heights,” she added.

“The past four years, Bhavna has been fundamental in growing Lamudi into the Philippines’ trusted brand for property search, helping thousands of brokers and property developers to market their products to millions of monthly property seekers. We are not only most thankful, but believe her work will have lasting impact on the entire industry,” Kian Moini, Co-Founder and CEO of Lamudi, said.

For his part, Stern thanked Suresh for the trust, while acknowledging the legacy she’ll leave with the company. “Bhavna played a huge role in making Lamudi a household name in the industry,” he shared.

“I could not be more eager to take on the challenge of leading the company to its envisioned hyper-growth phase, supporting the industry through the unprecedented crisis we’re currently facing,” Stern added.

Moini expressed strong excitement over Stern joining Lamudi. “We’re most excited to have Kenneth Stern, an industry expert, on board to take our company through the next phase of our ambitious goals. Kenneth’s expertise, skill and character are already sought after by the team and the industry days after his joining. We could not have found a better match.”

A Real Estate Veteran Comes Home

With ten years of real estate experience under his belt, Stern is set to help scale the Lamudi business further. His global experience in property industries, namely in the United States of America, Australia, and the Philippines, adds to the strength of his expertise.

Stern took on the country manager role of RE/MAX Philippines in 2016, and under his leadership, the real estate franchise has grown to be the largest in the country by number of offices, agents, and transaction volume. In 2019, RE/MAX Philippines was among the fastest growing franchises in Asia Pacific.

He graduated with a Master’s Degree in International Business at Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia and a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration at the Boston University, USA.

He was previously a Bloomberg property expert on Business World Live in One News, providing updates and analysis on the Philippine real estate market.

The Next Step in Strengthening Lamudi’s Market Presence

The entry of Stern as the new CEO for Lamudi Philippines treads on the heels of the biggest change in the company since its foundation, having EMPG (Emerging Markets Property Group), the leading digital classifieds groups in the Middle East, North Africa (MENA), South Asia and Southeast Asia regions, as its parent company.

The acquisition was announced publicly in May, with the business deal taking place before EMPG’s merger with OLX Group’s businesses in MENA and South Africa. EMPG owns and operates various established property platforms around the world, including Bayut in the UAE, Saudi Arabia and Jordan, Zameen in Pakistan, Bproperty.com in Bangladesh, Mubawab in Morocco and Tunisia, and Kaidee in Thailand.

The company likewise owns and operates Dubizzle in the UAE, OLX Pakistan, OLX Egypt and OLX Lebanon, in addition to several other OLX platforms.

Moini said that EMPG’s acquisition of Lamudi Global “raises the bar” for digital marketplaces. The group’s strategic depth and advanced technology are two major assets Lamudi banks on, while the ambitious growth plans are backed with the required capital, according to Moini.

Lamudi Philippines is expected to expand further its operations with the new leadership. Its track record is marked by innovative industry solutions, including housing fairs, broker awards, trend reports, and educational training sessions under the Lamudi Academy. Moving forward, it will continue to propel the industry, improving services and helping people find their dream property online.

Journey through life courageously.

#YouGotThis Viviamo Inc., maker of the Belle de Jour Power Planner, launches its 2021 products to help you journey out of this pandemic courageously. This a year everyone will remember. As we’ve been locked in our homes, every day balancing fear and anxiety over the uncertainties brought about by a global pandemic, we hear a quiet rebellion, with some of us saying–oh this year doesn’t count, this year is cancelled, my planner is a waste. Yet in this time of great pause we really cannot deny: we are also given the choice to simply be, to get to know ourselves again, to journey deep in that space within where all is well.Though many of our plans seem to have turned upside down, does that mean we should stop going after our goals and passions? What if we are given this pause to recalibrate, to course-correct, to redesign ourselves? And to help Filipinos continue to journey through life courageously, Viviamo, maker of the Belle de Jour (BDJ) Power Planner, launches its 2021 planner and journal collection on September 19-20, at the First Planning and Journaling Online Summit: #YouGotThis. #YouGotThis was created because now more than ever, this message needs to be felt, and heard, and passed around. At a time when we must distance ourselves from each other to survive, we can’t ignore the human yearning to still connect–and isn’t it that the most important connection we can make, is with our Inner Selves? When we are forced to strip down to the barest of essentials, we journey deeper within, and with the help of pen and paper we begin to acknowledge our emotions, start to power through anxiety, again remember our dreams, then recommit to our goals, and in the process, rediscover the strength and power of our innermost Selves. It is our hope that with #YouGotThis, we can help every Filipino strengthen that spark of hope within, so we can all journey on, past this pandemic, as stronger and better persons. Our hope for each Filipino is to feel and to believe that #YouGotThis. For this is the year we choose courage over fear. This is the year we choose to trust that we are still worthy of our dreams, and that with an open mind, open heart and open will–we are limitless. And whatever your space, whatever your psyche, whatever your journaling or planning style, you want a journal or planner that can be a witness to your life. Viviamo promises a 2021 collection like no other; thoughtfully, intuitively and beautifully designed products to help you achieve whatever you desire and journey courageously through life.Balance dreams and responsibilities with the 2021 Belle de Jour Power PlannerViviamo’s flagship offering, the Belle de Jour Power Planner, inspires you to “Grow with the Earth”.

And that is when we realize: each one of us is in the middle of becoming who we are meant to be. The shards of broken glass on the cover of the 2021 Everything is Possible Planner shows us the beauty of breakthroughs. Transformation only happens when you embrace vulnerability and allow yourself to first be broken. The life you’ve always wanted is just waiting for you outside of the glass walls you built yourself. All you need is to trust and to be open to possibilities.Find your center with 2021 Focus JournalThe Focus 2021 Journal is all about creating positive changes within yourself. These changes are meant to prepare you for life’s inevitable challenges.

This structure is believed to represent change and the movement and flow it creates.
