Secure Gaming Operation With A Risk Based Approach – The Brazilian State Lottery Case., Itamar Pereira May 2019

Secure Gaming Operation With A Risk Based Approach – The Brazilian State Lottery Case., Itamar Pereira

International Conference on Gambling & Risk Taking

Security and integrity are the corner stone of a well-succeeded operation in gaming industry. It is the same for the particular case of state lotteries operation that have in the consumers´ liability the propelling force to it survives along the years. In that direction, we propose to analyze the concreate case of Brazilian state lottery (Loteria Federal) - in a operation for more than 55 years inside a bank – that in 2012 was certified by the World Lottery Association (WLA), a certification that has its bases in risk analysis as a mechanism to point out the mitigation of weaknesses and to ...

Well I'Ll Be Damned - Insights Into Predictive Value Of Pedigree Information In Horse Racing, Timothy Baker Mr, Ming-Chien Sung, Johnnie Johnson Professor, Tiejun Ma

International Conference on Gambling & Risk Taking

Fundamental form characteristics like how fast a horse ran at its last start, are widely used to help predict the outcome of horse racing events. The exception being in races where horses haven’t previously competed, such as Maiden races, where there is little or no publicly available past performance information. In these types of events bettors need only consider a simplified suite of factors however this is offset by a higher level of uncertainty. This paper examines the inherent information content embedded within a horse’s ancestry and the extent to which this information is discounted in the United ...

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

A devastating flood in Red River valley in 1997 emphasized the need to study the flood control measures in the Red River basin using state of the art modeling tools. The Red River and its floodplains can be modeled using one-dimensional, quasi two-dimensional or fully two-dimensional hydrodynamic models. Each modeling approach has its own advantages and limitations. The main purpose of this report is a comparison between one-dimensional (or quasi two dimensional) and fully two-dimensional hydrodynamic modeling approaches for modeling floods in the Red River basin.

A two-dimensional hydrodynamic model, MIKE 21, coupled with Geographic Information System (GIS ...
