Email Address 14th February 2019 | By contenteditor AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter International betting integrity body ESSA received 267 reports of unusual wagering activity from operator partners in 2018, with tennis responsible for more than half of these cases.A total of 178 reports were filed in relation to wagering on tennis events around the world, with football some way behind in second place on 52 cases.Table tennis attracted eight reports in 2018, ahead of esports and basketball, both on seven, while four alerts were generated for beach volleyball and three for indoor volleyball. Ice hockey and badminton followed on two cases each, with horse racing, handball, boxing and bowls only responsible for one report apiece.The total number of reports remains level year-on-year, with ESSA having looked at 266 suspicious betting cases in 2017.Europe remains the region of most concern to the integrity body, accounting for 148, or 55%, of the total reports filed over the past year. Spain was responsible for 18 of these cases, closely followed by Italy on 17 cases and then the Czech Republic and Ukraine with 10 each. Asia ranks second in terms of suspicious betting reports with 48 cases, 13 of which were located in Turkey, while Africa had a total of 26 cases, almost half coming out of Egypt (12). South America accounted for 23 reports while just 13 cases were located in North America.However, despite the relatively low number of reports in North America, ESSA secretary general Khalid Ali has said the launch of legalised sports betting in a number of states across the US raises new integrity concerns for the body and it is now working with partners in the country to monitor activities.“One of the biggest concerns of the betting market opening up in the US is integrity; as a result, we assisted the establishment of the Sports Wagering Integrity Monitoring Association, our American equivalent, with whom we will work closely to combat sports betting related corruption on a global basis,” he said.Ali also addressed ongoing concerns over integrity in tennis, with the sport having accounted for the majority of suspicious betting cases in ESSA reports for some time now. On average, more than 65% of ESSA alerts have been on tennis.An independent review panel last year published a report following a three-year study of the sport, in which it set out 12 integrity recommendations. Ali said the recommendation to restrict the sale of data used by operators for in-play markets as being particularly relevant to addressing the sport’s integrity concerns.The Panel proposed removing official data for International Tennis Federation (ITF) events with prize funds of $15,000 (£11,700/€13,300) and $25,000 or lower, but this was altered so that official ITF in-play data for $25,000 matches be retained.“We are now seeking to engage with the sport on the future of official in-play data for $15,000 matches, and also to assist the smooth implementation of the Panel’s other integrity proposals, which we have generally supported,” Ali said.Meanwhile, ESSA has revealed that Jon Russell, global head of trading at Betway, is to become its new chair. He will replace Heike Mayer, who has served in the role for the past two years.Speaking about his new role, Russell said: “The year ahead is expected to pose new challenges and opportunities for the sector and ESSA is setting out a clear plan of action to ensure that its members are best placed to meet those.“Indeed, being part of a collective global monitoring network has never been of greater importance from both a business and integrity perspective, and I call upon all responsible operators to join us in ESSA.” Tennis dominates ESSA suspicious betting reports in 2018 Topics: Legal & compliance Sports betting Legal & compliancelast_img read more

Amelco rolls out new football outrights pricing model Email Address Sports betting software and trading services provider Amelco has launched Quantum Outrights, a new football outright pricing model.Powered by Amelco’s proprietary machine learning tools, Quantum Outrights is able to price the outcome of all 380 games across the English Premier League season.Amelco has said that these predications can be used to generate more than 200 new football outright market types – bets placed on the outcome of an entire league or competition rather than individual games – all of which feature in-play availability.Quantum Outrights, which is fully automated and delivered instantaneously, is now available as both a feed and self-service model. Football Quantum Outrights was previously only offered as a white label product to Amelco’s partners.“We created Quantum Outrights to solve one of the few remaining gaps in the market, enhancing the customer experience on football betting – by developing a product that can instantly deliver the adjustments in odds-pricing that operators need, all based on real-time developments,” Amelco trading director Sam Foulkes explained. “With a background of developing financial systems and a market leader in the trading and sportsbook industry for close to a decade, we are unparalleled in our ability to build extremely reliable and robust solutions that can consume and process an incredible amount of data in real time.“We can say with full confidence that there is nothing else out there on the market that can benefit sportsbook operators quite like this when it comes to their outrights offering,” Foulkes added.Amelco’s current portfolio of sports betting partners includes the likes of Paddy Power Betfair, BetStars and GVC, the parent company of Ladbrokes Coral.Image: Max Pixel AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Topics: Sports betting Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Sports bettinglast_img read more

Topics: Casino & games People Sports betting Strategy Slots The Office of Responsible Gambling for the Australian state of New South Wales (NSW) is to invest AU$1.3m (£715,712/€799,788/US$909,378) in a number of projects designed to help protect consumers from gambling-related harm.Among the initiatives is a new website which, being developed by the University of Sydney Gambling Treatment and Research Clinic, will enable consumers to self-exclude from multiple gambling venues.The project, which will receive AU$176,400 in funding, builds on the state’s current self-exclusion technology by allowing players to voluntarily exclude themselves online. Currently the ClubsNSW multi-venue programme requires people to self-exclude from a gambling venue in person.Deakin University has also received AU$250,000 to deliver two online courses that will provide education and research on responsible gambling and preventing and reducing harm.According to the Office, these new courses will offer a social learning approach for the community, covering young people, Indigenous, lower socioeconomic and vulnerable groups. School teachers and support centres throughout NSW will also have access to the courses.“Just as technology is changing the way people gamble with the rise of online and app-based betting, it is also driving exciting new initiatives to support people to gamble responsibly,” NSW Office of Responsible Gambling director Natalie Wright said.“By funding programs and research projects like these, we will further develop and underpin the evidence base for responsible gambling policy and programs.”The new funding comes after the Office last month provided almost AU$400,000 in grants to fund research into reducing and preventing gambling-related harm. The sum is being split between five universities across Australia, supporting projects that focus on helping young people and families, and employing new technology to tackle dangers that may arise from gambling.Image: williamnyk Tags: Online Gambling OTB and Betting Shops Slot Machines Regions: Oceania Australia 27th June 2019 | By contenteditor Email Addresslast_img read more

first_img The Champions League final at the very beginning of June led to average deposits and retention rates dropping off during the month. However, our exclusive look at Optimove iGaming Pulse data shows that the casino trend was more steady.In June the average deposit amount in sports was 3% lower than the previous month (at €29), probably due to the end of the Champions League, with the final taking place on June 1.The average number of monthly deposits per player increased year-on-year in June by 46% but decreased slightly (2%) month-on-month.The big year-on-year jump is likely due to the World Cup having started in June 2018 (with finals in mid-July 2018) – it’s likely that more players in the previous year were casual bettors, rather than avid gamblers and fans.In June monthly revenue per player increased by 19% year-on-year and remained the same month-on-month.The conversion rate decreased 13% year-on-year, and 8% month-on-month, to 46%. This means less players were placing their first deposit after registering.The retention rate was down 11% from the prior year, and stood at 59%. Again, this appears to be down to the fact that the Champions League ended on the first day of the month and there was no other big event to prompt players’ next interaction. The new retention rate decreased 17% from May, meaning new players (probably registering to bet on the Champions League in May) had no reason to continue playing in June.An odd-numbered summer brings not only sunshine and heatwaves, but also a long off-season, which leads to a decline in retention metrics. To combat this situation, operators should up their engagement game and strive to keep their bettors active, using cross-sell into other sports and special offers.In casino, the average deposit amount showed a very steady trend, despite a slight decrease month-on-month. The mobile bet rate stood at 50% and we saw a 4% increase year-on-year, but a slight decrease month-on-month at 7%. Monthly revenue per player held steady at €86.KPI close up: new retention rate The new retention rate represents the number of players who made their first deposit in one month and remained active in the following month, divided by the number of first-time depositors in the first month, in other words the number of new players who remain active two months in a row.This KPI speaks to the loyalty of first-time depositors, since players who make a first deposit around a big event are more likely to leave following finals. Keeping those players engaged and active is a challenge all operators face regularly.Last month, for example, the new retention rate decreased by 17% month-on-month, which means a significant number of new players who made deposits in order to bet on the Champions League in May were not engaged enough to continue playing in June.Disclaimer: At the time this article was written, data was still being updated.

first_img In the second part of iGamingBusiness.com’s interview with Vermantia chief executive Filippos Antonopoulos, he discusses the importance of a diversified geographic footprint, and explains why he sees the supplier’s majority shareholder Arena Racing Company as one of the most exciting businesses in the industry. Regions: Africa Europe AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter 21st August 2019 | By Robin Harrison In the second part of iGamingBusiness.com’s interview with Vermantia chief executive Filippos Antonopoulos, he discusses the importance of a diversified geographic footprint, and explains why he sees the supplier’s majority shareholder Arena Racing Company as one of the most exciting businesses in the industry. Read part one here.To ensure a business can withstand regulatory change in one market, a diversified geographic footprint is key Antonopoulos says: “We are obviously big fans of emerging international markets.”This, he explains, is because a supplier can control their business model, rather than end up with a patchwork of different agreements and terms, depending on what sort of partnerships are available, as is the case in more established, competitive markets.“In terms of which markets are good, you want to look for a few basic good points,” Antonopoulos explains. “The must-haves are: as many operators competing as possible and as large a market as possible.“So let’s take two examples. Both Nigeria and Ethiopia are very large from a population point of view, so they fit the bill of a large market. Let’s say that Ethiopia is run by a single operator similar to OPAP in Greece, and Nigeria has a multitude of operators. You want to be a vendor that wishes to go in with a strong solution – so which one of the two is better?“From an expansion point of view you’d say Nigeria is better, as there isn’t this binary case of one operator, so you’re in or out.”A new Arena
 Yet for a business with such an international outlook, and a CEO very aware of the need to avoid being wedded to a single market, Vermantia is now majority owned by Arena Racing Company (ARC), a UK racetrack operator. It’s clear that Antonopoulos sees huge potential in the business, even against a backdrop of uncertainty for the wider racing sector.“Arena is in some ways it is a very mature business that operates within a stretched environment in terms of margins and gaming climate,” Antonopoulos says. “On the one hand it looks like an ‘old economy’ asset.“On the other hand, it is to me one of the most valuable businesses in the world today,” he adds, however. “In the sports and racing part of the gambling universe, they are one of the very few true generator of their own content that is also able to go all the way to the shop.“It is as if ARC is the combination of FIFA and Sportradar. They own the racecourses and create the sports and betting content together,” he explains. “So in terms of potential, they are a diamond.”Not only can Vermantia provide the technology to bring ARC content into betting shops around the world, creating new revenue streams, but it further diversifies, but it can provide technical know-how to update the racing – and horserace betting – experience.“That’s what ARC’s board sees, why they have made very bold and aggressive moves. And that’s who I like to collaborate with, those with aggressive strategies.”This aggressive approach to business has served him well in that he was able to build Vermantia, a relative latecomer to the retail supply market, into a thriving business. He points out that not only did this mean the business had to operate in a more efficient and effective way, but it also benefitted from not being wedded to legacy technology.“We run what is the world’s largest broadcaster for the gaming industry from a space that is one fifth the size of our biggest competitor,” he says. “Why? Are we smarter? We’d like to think so. Are we more cash-intensive, if we derive more value from each Euro? Maybe.“The reality is that coming in later into the market we had to be a bit smarter but also had the chance to use cheaper and better technologies”Next up is OKTO, a new payment solutions provider. As with Vermantia, Antonopoulos is targeting a mature and highly competitive market, in which consolidation has seen a number of major incumbents establish powerful positions.Yet he believes that with a better understanding of what players actually need will allow OKTO to carve out market share.“As I invest a lot in knowing the player, I also want to participate in monetising the player,” he explains.“There is no better way to monetise this knowledge than to go back, design build and come back to the player offering them a wallet solution. There are few things as true and directly connected to the player as their wallet.”OKTO plans to launch a range of solutions, including digital banking tools for challenger banks and retail and mobile payment products. It’s all based on the rationale that it creates a product build specifically for customers, rather than to aid businesses.The opportunity stems from the European Union’s second Payment Services Directive, which essentially breaks down banks’ monopoly on user date. Merchants will be able to retrieve account data from the banks, processing payments without redirecting customers to services such as PayPal or VisaAntonopoulos is under no illusions that payments is a highly competitive sector. Nevertheless, he adds, he believes the current range of products and solutions leave room for improvement.“As a user, I can see the seams of the dress,” he says of the current payments market. “I really think that I can sew a one-piece dress.”Boldness and confidence in his, and his colleagues’, abilities have already worked for Vermantia. It remains to be seen whether he will have the same level of success upon the foray into payments.​ Interview: Filippos Antonopoulos, Vermantia – Part 2 Topics: Legal & compliance Sports betting Strategy Tech & innovation Legal & compliance Tags: Mobile Online Gambling OTB and Betting Shops Payments Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Email Addresslast_img read more

first_imgFinance 31st October 2019 | By contenteditor Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Finland’s state-owned gambling operator Veikkaus said operational efficiencies enabled it to record a lift in profits despite a fall in revenues.In its interim report, Veikkaus said turnover for the three months to 30 September was down 0.7% to €733.9m, continuing a trend that has seen it drop 4.1% to €2.23bn for the year to date.Gross gaming revenue of €422.8m was down 0.9% year-on-year during the quarter, and down 2.1% to €1.27bn for the year to date.The operator said net sales decreased in almost all segments in the nine-month period, however lottery net sales of €267.4m were up by 6.7% thanks to several record-breaking weeks in the early part of the year.Some 57.1% of net sales came from physical outlets and 42.9% from the digital channel. Veikkaus said competition in the online sphere from unlicensed foreign gaming companies was a significant factor in its decrease in overall sales.While revenue has decreased Veikkaus said it was pleased with several indicators relating to responsible gambling. The percentage of identifiable customers within all gaming has increased to 45.2% (up 0.4 percentage points) so far this year. In September, Veikkaus introduced the possibility for gaming machines to authenticate via mobile devices.In Q3, expenses were down 4.2% to €52.0m. Total expenses decreased in January-September by 8.4% compared to the corresponding period of the previous year. Veikkaus said this was influenced by a reduction of non-recurring integration costs, reduction of marketing costs and overall cost effectiveness.For the nine months to 30 September, customers were paid €963.3 million in gaming profits, down 6.7% on the previous year, while the operator paid €151.8 in lottery tax to the state, a drop of 2.1%.Veikkaus registered a profit of €260.8m in Q3 which was up 5.6% year-on-year. So for the year to 30 September, it has made a profit of €762.2m – up 1.3% year-on-year.“Working in a cost-effective way, we’ve been able to keep the profits from starting the year at last year’s level,” said Veikkaus’ president and CEO, Olli Sarekoski.“Veikkaus needs to ensure its ability to perform in the middle of a changing operating environment, irrespective of the decisions that are made regarding the Finnish Gaming system. The changes in the operating environment entail that Veikkaus must focus more and more strongly on the digital channel. In online gaming, Veikkaus currently doesn’t have a genuine Monopoly, but we are competing against foreign gaming operators.” Finland’s state-owned gambling operator Veikkaus said operational efficiencies enabled it to record a lift in profits for the third quarter and the year to date, despite a fall in revenues.

Mybet named exclusive partner of Deutche Eishockeyliga Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Mybet, the German-facing betting and gaming brand that relaunched last year, has been named the exclusive sportsbook partner of the country’s top ice hockey competition, the Deutsche Eishockeyliga (DEL).The deal, which sees the operator resume sponsorship activities following the business’ collapse, acquisition and revamp, gives Mybet branding space in TV spots and on the league’s social media channels.It will be focused on the DEL’s online channels, with the partners planning to collaborate on fan activation activities on social media.“We look forward to this strategic cooperation with Mybet,” DEL managing director Gernot Tripcke commented.“This gives our ice hockey fans the opportunity to bet on their favourites. “At the same time, we will look to raise the profile of ice hockey in Germany through a series of campaigns,” Tripcke added.The partnership comes after Mybet last year relaunched a Kambi-powered sportsbook, following a deal struck between the supplier and the brand’s new owners, Malta-based investment body Rhinoceros Group, a business led by former Bonnier Gaming Malta operations chief Tobias Carlsson.The sportsbook product was complemented by a new casino offering, through a deal with EveryMatrix.Rhinoceros swooped in to acquire the brand and Mybet’s digital assets in December 2018, at a time when it had looked set to disappear from the market, having been active since 1998.The operator, which had been in dire financial straits for some time, was declared insolvent in August 2018, owing some €4m in unpaid sports betting taxes.This came weeks after discussions with an unnamed investor to acquire the business had collapsed over what the operator described as unworkable conditions set by the potential buyer.Mybet previously served as a partner of Bundesliga club Borussia Mönchengladbach, and at one point had a partnership with tabloid newspaper Bild.

Raketech said despite this disruption, it has been able to maintain operational efficiently.“Currently we work hard to help our customers, the operators to reallocate their marketing investments from sports to our main product vertical casino where we continue to see good demand,” Raketech chief executive Oskar Mühlbach said.“The situation furthermore confirms that our strategy to increase our global footprint, product offering and vertical spread is the way forward in terms of securing a healthy and balanced business risk set up.”Last month, Raketech reported a year-on-year rise in profit for 2019, despite new regulations in the Swedish market pushing revenue down. Total revenue at for the 12 months to 31 December 2019 amounted to €23.9m, down 6.5% from €25.6m in the previous year.Lower revenue and higher costs pushed operating profit down 45.5% to €6.1m. However, when taking into account $2.3m in other non-operating income, which related to party liability that was waived in Q1 of 2019, profit before tax was up 54.2% to €7.4m.center_img Finance Online affiliate and content marketing provider Raketech said it does not expect the outbreak of novel coronavirus (Covid-19) to have a long-term impact on its business, but did warn that the pandemic is likely to affect sports betting income.
