All participants in a given tournament will be priced to win the tournament outright. Each-way betting is available. In the event of a match starting but not being completed the player progressing to the next round or being awarded the victory will be deemed the winner for settlement purposes. In the event of the first frame not being completed bets will be void, unless the outcome has already been determined.
Settlement will be determined by official tournament data. Betting does not include foul shots. In the case of a re-rack only the highest break in the officially counting frame will determine settlement. If the statutory number of frames in a match are not completed, changed, or different from those offered for betting purposes, bets will be void.
All session betting refers to a specified number of frames - as designated on each market e. The first frame of the specified mini session must be played for bets to stand.

The exceptions to this rule are in relation to friendly matches, where all match markets will be settled based on the actual result when the game finishes (excluding any extra-time), irrespective of whether the full 90 minutes is played, and Beach Soccer where markets are specifically settled on 36 minutes play only. Extra-Time In-Play MarketsBets are settled on the official statistics for the extra-time period.
Any goals or corners that were taken or scored during regulation time do not count. Matches Postponed, Brought Forward or AbandonedAn unplayed or postponed match will be treated as a non-runner for settling purposes unless it is played within the same week (ending on Sunday) in which case the bet will stand unless cancelled by mutual consent.As the market has matured the trend is towards working with best-in-class providers across each element of the video stack.
For forward thinking publishers, premium solutions will always trump convenient mediocrity. Expect to see this trend continue into 2016. Expect to see brands begin to demand more from their agencies, smart agencies getting more creative in their approach and publishers setting tighter guidelines as to what creative they will accept.
The consistent theme running through much of this piece is the user. If as an industry we consistently deliver users the right content, with relevant and respectful advertising, all wrapped up in a satisfactory user experience, then the rest will look after itself.
Best in class trumps convenience. Enjoy the 2016 ride. In October 2009 John Walkenbach noticed that the price of the Kindle was falling at a consistent rate, lowering almost on a schedule. By June 2010, the rate was so unwavering that he could easily forecast the date at which the Kindle would be free: November 2011. In August, 2010 I had the chance to point it out to Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon. When I brought it to the attention of publishing veterans they would often laugh nervously. It must cost something to make.
The trick was figuring out how Amazon could bundle the free Kindle and still make money. My thought was the cell phone model: a free Kindle if you buy X number of e-books. But last week Michael Arrington at TechCruch reported on a rumor which hints at a more clever plan: a free Kindle for every Prime customer of Amazon. It turns out that was just a test run for a much more ambitious program.
A reliable source tells us Amazon wants to give a free Kindle to every Amazon Prime subscriber. If the past is any indication of future events, expect an as-if-free Kindle this fall in time for the holidays.
UPDATE: I misread the TechCrunch dateline. Not the bog-standard Kindle, but the one with free global data access. And not just one Kindle, but four Kindles. And not just once, but every year. I keep pointing out to friends that soon the kindles could be free. I was buying quite a lot of book in a year but before I had my kindle, only a fraction of those were bought on Amazon.
Now that every time I finish a book, I can buy a new one in seconds and keep on reading I buy all of my books on Amazon and I probably tripled the number of books I buy. This has been going on for more than a year (availability of the kindle in Canada).
Amazon has a clear picture of how much more money they make with a user once they get a kindle.Marketers will need to ensure their campaigns are truly cross-screen, thinking mobile-first when approaching their business strategies. The investment in these new formats will be centered on native video, allowing text-based publishers to tap into fast growing video advertising budgets.
Viewability became a hot topic in 2015 for desktop video advertising. We should expect to have profound impacts on mobile video advertising, changing the way advertisers allocate spend and price to actual user engagement. Mobile video has strong potential to drive engagement beyond the actual view, like app installs, and convert users down the funnel.
This will be powerful given the immersive nature of both of these formats, which will have a huge impact on mobile advertising landscape. What I mean by that is essentially retailers becoming agencies. Retail brands have long been delving into the world of publishing by creating custom content for their sites around recipes or seasonal allergy guides. The next logical step is to become retail trading desks too. The point of sale and customer relationship management (CRM) data supermarket chains are constantly gathering is richer than anything any media agency or brand has access to.
This data runs both offline and online and brands desperate to better understand their customers would jump at the opportunity to access it. Some global retailers have already been experimenting with this approach, notably Amazon and Walmart, as well as others such as Coles in Australia, but 2016 will be the year the global retail sector really wakes up to the potential of the retail trading desk.
The coming year will see major strides in the aggregation of data from disparate sources into a single view that can be used to drive holistic marketing strategies. Marketers will continue to adopt data management platforms (DMPs) and increase their focus on unifying marketing and advertising data and messaging, resulting in the eventual merger of ad tech and martech. It will also mean increased collaboration and validated technological partnerships between mid-sized companies looking to make sure their individual solutions can work interoperably towards common marketing goals.
The value of third-party data will be further scrutinised as marketers ask, how valuable is data that just about anyone can purchase. And, with the rise of walled gardens, will second-party data become fragmented.
To allow advertisers the best opportunity to engage with consumers, first-party data must still rule. One way we expect brands and agencies to make sure their digital campaigns hit home next year is via an increased focus on moment marketing. Campaigns can be synced to a wide range of events that are likely to impact consumer behaviour, for example a change in the weather, the score of a football match or the screening of a major TV ad campaign. Everyday changes in the weather are also high on the list of moments that brands want to use to trigger digital campaigns.
Other triggers we expect brands to utilise in 2016 include a change in pollution levels. Also that means the money is now going to completely wrong pockets, arguably causing even more damage to the society.
This is highly noticeable with video ads, where poorly managed optimization attempts are causing viewers to wait for several seconds and some times even more until the page fully loads or video content starts playing.
I expect to see substantial improvement in 2016 as video-centric platforms gain better technologies to enhance yield and delivery optimization. Alternatively, its the year of the video-native-social mobile. To continue reading this article, please exit incognito mode or log in.
