Organisation blasts plans to block payments to foreign gaming sites Tags: Online Gambling Payments Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter 22nd August 2018 | By contenteditor Legal & compliance The European Gaming and Betting Association (EGBA) has urged the Norwegian government to introduce new regulations to allow foreign gaming companies to operate in the country, saying the current system is “not sustainable”. At present, regulations only permit Norwegian punters to legally gamble with either Norsk tipping or Norsk Rikstoto. However, some opt to place bets with international companies that do not hold a licence in the country. Norway’s government recently completed a consultation on its proposal to begin blocking payment transactions to and from these foreign gaming websites. However, the EGBA has openly criticised the plans, saying such proposals are not a “realistic or effective measure to control internet activity”. The situation is now at a point where the EGBA has initiated court proceedings against plans to begin blocking payments, saying such activity is illegal under both Norwegian and EU law. The organisation said that blocking payments is “easy to circumvent, virtually impossible to enforce for Norwegian banks, and creates an artificial market by shutting off EU-licensed payment service providers”. The EGBA is instead calling for the government to develop new online regulation that is “modern, open to competition, protects consumers, and reflects consumer choice and the reality of the digital age of borderless internet”. Maarten Haijer (pictured), secretary general of the EGBA, said in a statement issued to iGamingBusiness.com: “From a consumer perspective, there are only two licensed gambling providers in Norway – both state-owned – and this is just not sustainable in an age when consumers can easily search around the internet for their preferred choice of gaming product. “A fundamental rethink and reworking of the Norwegian online gaming regime is therefore necessary to ensure that local and foreign operators can co-exist and have equal access to a well-regulated market which meets the realities of consumer demand for different gaming products.” Haijer said this can be “easily achieved” through a national licensing regime and cited the recent re-regulation of the Swedish market as an example of this. “This would enable the Norwegian gambling authority to bring the activity of foreign websites under its control, alongside existing state-owned operators,” Haijer said. “That’s exactly what the overwhelming majority of European countries have been doing, and that’s exactly what we are urging Norway to do.”The Norwegian Gaming Authority (NGA) has recently taken a number of steps to clamp down on unlicensed operators in the country. Earlier this month, the NGA revealed that it had succeeded in persuading Apple to remove unlicensed gambling apps from its App Store.In July, NGA reiterated its support for new regulations to limit the impact of unregulated gambling after a spike in advertising from offshore operators. International operators spent some NOK866m (€89.2m/$103m) on television advertising in Norway last year.

The workshop events will focus on common compliance findings and tackling money laundering, as well as helping gamblers stay safe using multi-operator self-exclusion and local risk assessments. Manchester’s Performance Spaces Central Library will host the first of these events, with representatives from local smaller operators across the arcade, betting and bingo industries invited to attend. Helen Venn, executive director of compliance and licensing at the Commission, said: “Raising standards across the whole gambling industry is at the heart of our latest strategy to shape a well-regulated gambling market that works for consumers.“These workshops are a really important opportunity for us to engage with smaller operators on a face-to-face basis and to re-emphasise the importance of gambling businesses taking their anti-money laundering and social responsibility requirements seriously.” In recent weeks, the Commission has made a series of announcements outlining its commitment to tackling issues related to responsible gambling in the UK. Last month, the regulator published updated rules on advertising, pledging to take “tougher action” against gambling firms that breach regulations in the UK. This followed a call to arms in July for UK gambling industry to “step up” to help the regulator improve standards across the sector. In August, the Commission also announced it was to work with the Responsible Gambling Strategy Board on a new research project that will look into whether some gambling products and environments are more harmful than others. The Commission last week also backed calls from the Competition and Markets Authority for operators to make it easier for customers to withdraw funds from their online accounts. The regulator said companies should “take immediate action” or face the consequences.

Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Online gaming solutions provider River iGaming will focus more on B2B operations after the division performed ahead of expectations in the third quarter, but has sought advice on strategic alternatives for its B2C business after it fell short of targets.In a trading update, River said it went live with its first B2B client in September, while the provider also reported a “backlog of new clients”, with rising demand for its B2B solutions.However, River also reported a “very challenging” market for its B2C brands, and the worse-than-expected performance for this segment is set to impact its results for the second half of 2019.River said it has initiated and partially completed significant cost cutting measures for the B2C division, and is working with Akur Capital to review strategic alternatives for the segment.As a result, River said it will commit more resources on becoming a software-as-a-service driven B2B business. River said it is working on different initiatives to capitalise on opportunities in B2B, with spending to continue as planned within the segment.The move comes after River in July completed the acquisition of the Bear Group B2C subsidiary of mobile games developer Gaming Realms in a deal worth £11.5m (€13.6m/$15.1m). That sale allowed Gaming Realms to pivot to a dedicated B2B supplier.River said that once it has merged Bear Group into its current operations, it will be able to provide its customers with a better experience. In addition, River said centralising operations will create a leaner cost structure and optimise overall performance.In Q3, River also completed the acquisition of Gaming Realms’ igaming platform, which it will continue to develop and enhance as it targets new B2B clients.Meanwhile, River also highlighted the ongoing development of its Mediafusion marketing platform, with the build to be completed before the end of the year. River said the platform will help drive additional revenue.In terms of overall financial performance in the third quarter, proforma revenue for the third quarter amounted to €3.8m. Direct costs for the period amounted to €2.2m, meaning River ended the quarter with a gross profit of £1.6m.However, River also incurred various other costs, including operating costs worth €797,257 in Q3. Personnel costs stood at €1.3m, marketing costs amounted to €869,833 and depreciation and amortisation expenses totalled €42,007. This meant River was left with an operating loss of €1.4m for the period.For the year-to-date, proforma revenue stood at €9.2m and after direct costs of €4.4m, gross profit was €4.8m. Expenses related to operating, marketing and personnel, as well as depreciation and amortisation, meant an operating loss of €4.0m for the nine months to 30 September.

14th January 2020 | By contenteditor Email Address The Global Lottery Monitoring System (GLMS), the sports betting integrity body for the lottery industry, has revealed that it flagged 157 matches to its partner network for potentially suspicious activity in 2019, with football once again dominating. Football dominates GLMS betting alerts in 2019 Tags: Mobile Online Gambling OTB and Betting Shops Legal & compliance Topics: Legal & compliance Lottery Sports betting The Global Lottery Monitoring System (GLMS), the sports betting integrity body for the lottery industry, has revealed that it flagged 157 matches to its partner network for potentially suspicious activity in 2019, with football once again dominating.The vast majority of these alerts were sent to football’s world and European governing bodies, FIFA and UEFA, with alerts generated for 98 matches. During the year 12 alerts were sent to the International Olympic Committee, with 78 sent to other governing bodies. GLMS noted that certain events were sent to more than one body.Members, meanwhile, received 787 alerts after detecting irregularities in betting patterns. While this was once again subject to some duplication, Europe accounted for the bulk of these, with 570 sent. Football again dominated, accounting for 450 of the 570, followed by 62 for basketball and 16 for tennis.Asia followed with 88 alerts, of which 67 were for football, 16 for basketball and 4 for tennis. South America came third with 65 alerts, with 59 for football, five for basketball and one for tennis.Of these 787 alerts, 50 were “code red”, where serious irregularities were identified or allegations of match-fixing made by a named source were made. Yellow events, triggered by unexplained odds changes, rumours of match-fixing or information provided by members, accounted for 160 of the total.The majority (420) were classed as green alerts, in which minor odds changes, team-related news or wrong starting prices were to blame, with a further 157 sent at the request of members.Alerts tended to be generated before a match started, with unusual activity flagged pre-match on 583 occasions, far ahead of the 186 alerts generated in-play. Just 18 matches were flagged after they had concluded.GLMS president Ludovico Calvi described 2019 as a successful year for the monitoring body, in which it had expanded its partner base, signed up new members and expanded its educational efforts.“As we look ahead to 2020, we will continue in our effort to expand our global membership base,” Calvi said.He revealed GLMS will continue to expand into new territories by opening an integrity hub in Canada, following the launch of a similar centre in Hong Kong, with efforts to ramp up its presence in North America also underway.“We also look forward to further supporting the Council of Europe with the promotion and implementation of the Macolin Convention, which is clearly the most comprehensive and global legal instrument acting against the manipulation of sport competitions world-wide,” he added.

Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Topics: Legal & compliance Danish gaming leader Danske Spil has issued a 10-point plan to improve player protection standards in the market, after claiming current rules are inadequate.The state-owned operator said the gaming market in Denmark is one of the best regulated in the world, but contended that current rules “do not adequately protect vulnerable players and minors”.It cited figures from the country’s regulator, Spillemyndigheden, which shows a 35% increase in self-exclusions between 2017 and 2019, as evidence that rules need to be tightened.Danske Spil has made 10 specific suggestions on how rules could be changed, with most relating to marketing.It wants to see the prohibition of advertising during live sports on television and no casino commercials on TV. Commercials for payday loans and gambling products should not be broadcast in the same advertising windows, it continued, while the use of celebrities to promote real-money gaming should be prohibited. Danske Spil wants a ban on game bonuses, and prohibition of VIP programs and affiliate partners. It also wants mandatory ID verification for betting shops introduced – which it will introduce in its own properties this year – as well as mandatory loss limits.“It is in everyone’s interest that we have a gaming market where gaming remains the entertainment it should be,” said Susanne Mørch Koch, the chief executive of Danske Spil.“And although we, as a gambling provider, have a large number of fences to prevent and protect vulnerable players, we unfortunately find that today there are too many who fall through the protection network that has been set up.“Therefore, we believe it is necessary to tighten the net and regulate the gaming market further. And in order for it to work, it requires the same rules for all gaming providers in Denmark.”Earlier this month, Spillemyndigheden revealed that its problem gambling helpline received 722 calls during its first full year of operation, more than initially expected.

The latest figures from the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission show the state’s betting market recovering from its April struggles in May, with revenue and handle both growing month-over-month.While the state’s brick-and-mortar casinos remaining closed throughout May as a result of novel coronavirus (Covid-19), amounts wagered via mobile betting apps grew significantly, rising from April’s all-time low of $1.6m to $7.0m.Customers won back $6.5m during the month, leaving revenue of $501,062, a 233.3% improvement from April’s $150,331 total. This was generated almost entirely online, with the total reduced marginally by a loss from the retail channel.With no new retail bets taken during the month, the only activity for that channel was bets placed prior to the shutdown, which amounted to a $20 bet placed at Penn National Gaming’s Ameristar venue.Payouts on bets placed prior to the shut-down across all land-based sportsbooks came in at $5,516, resulting in a $5,496 loss for the channel.Looking at revenue by venue, six operators without an online sportsbook took no bets during the month.Of the remaining 13, Prairie Meadows, partnered with William Hill, continued to lead the market. Its sportsbook app took in $2.7m in wagers, up significantly from April’s $869,008 total, with players winning back $2.4m. This left revenue of $250,708, up from $62,175 in the prior month.Read the full story on iGB North America.

With years of experience, operators have become adept at getting customers onto their sites. Product & technology Turner, meanwhile, noted that working with operators to build the product, speed was one of the most important things operators looked for. “I always liken it to having a game of golf. If you have a really good game, you’re going to come back. If you have a really bad game, you’re not just going to snap your clubs in half and give up, but you’re going to need something to come back to.” “You can imagine if we’re running certain promotions or odds boosts, we might want to enhance that experience by delivering certain content to those users,” he says. EquusForm’s Bet Finder tool, created by Jim Fitzmaurice and Michael Turner, shows a different side of personalisation for bet stimulation. Unlike tools which personalise themselves to a customer, it is designed to allow customers to personalise tips for themselves: showing a list of horses based on user-selected criteria such as form and odds. Viewers can then see the performance of horses in past races that meet this criteria. Email Address As operators seek new ways to engage customers and drive more betting activity, a combination of personalisation and data can play a key role, by creating new content that keeps customers on site and helps inform bettors. Daniel O’Boyle speaks to some of the rising businesses looking to leverage these tools to stimulate betting. Looking at historical data and live events, the product tracks trends and patterns to help inform punters’ bets. “Everyone was after speed. Everyone wanted to know how fast you can go in and place a bet.” “In football, there’s a lot of different ways to bet and there’s lots of widgets, but in horse racing, nobody’s really done it.” This data is then personalised, offering players insights specifically related to the bets they have placed in the past. Similarly, Turner says that this has become more important than ever given the effects of the novel Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. His business’ BetBooster product is one in a wave of new attempts to increase engagement through personalised content. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter “There’s just three lines of code to include everything, including the language component.” “We can do that by enriching the customer experience through content and through experiences. Streaming, by offering bettors the opportunity to watch while they bet, has been a clear way to increase engagement. Freedom to choose “It analyses the footage of the broadcast, the reactions of the crowd and commentators and the statistics of the plays, and delivers relevant highlights. “After one or two months, we’re going to have a lot of data,” he says. “It is of course collected anonymously – but we know that the anonymous player likes to bet on Asian handicap markets on the Premier League, so we can offer tips and insights about those games. Or you can offer tips for similar markets and maybe try to expand the way in which the player bets.” New ways to personalise Adam Kaplan, general manager of FanDuel, says that the deal represented a greater shift in general towards making the operator more of a home of sports content than ever before, stimulating betting activity by keeping customers around not only to bet but also to stay on top of sporting events. While tools to increase engagement have been popular in other sports, Turner adds that horse racing – despite being such a key sport for betting – had previously been left behind in this area. For Aviv Arnon, co-founder and vice president of business development at WSC sports, sports betting represents an opportunity to leverage assets that it already created. His business had been delivering sports content for media companies for more than a decade before venturing into the world of betting in an agreement with FanDuel, initially covering PGA Tour golf. “That’s already an opportunity where we could and will expand,” he says. “Our existing clients are all the major sports leagues in the world and they’re all thinking about ways to work with betting operators.” Ziv says that ultimately, allowing the player to be more involved in the betting process provides a huge number of opportunities for operators. “We probably understand the punter even more than the bookmaker, so we’re building our products around the people who really matter,” he adds. “ We traditionally worked with media, with clubs with broadcasters, but now there’s an increasing convergence with other areas because of how consumption is changing. Getting personal with sports bettors Rather than delivering betting tips, WSC creates personalised highlights for players. “We made it twofold really,” Turner says. “We put the genie function on the top, so you can press one of three buttons and the genie will make selections for you. That can be maybe for someone who’s just starting to get into horse racing. “Content is an area where we’re investing very heavy and the opportunity to leverage WSC’s capabilities with great content was an opportunity worth pursuing and focusing on,” he says. “I think there’s a clear path to growing our addressable audience and reach in a way that can drive our gaming businesses. But as key channels may get shut off thanks to tighter regulation, increased competition and – in the US – a need to shift from investment to profitability, these operators need to find ways to maximise the value of those customers, and that means finding ways to retain them and encourage them to bet. Similarly, Ziv said he was surprised to find that an increase in the speed at which players place bets turned out to be one of the key benefits of BetBooster in A/B testing, alongside growth in turnover, betting volume and average size per bet. “This is just one step towards that, but WSC is definitely going to be a big part of that strategy.” “There’s a unique synergy with what we do and what betting operators want to achieve.” “What we tried to do with the BetFinder is to make it really simple,” he says. “So if any customer was new to horse racing they can just open the BetFinder, click a few buttons and then it’ll give them a few horses that they can add to betslip and place the bet. “The punter can choose their own criteria. They can have as much or as little criteria as they like and either way it can give horses in all the day’s racing within seconds.” As these tools become more popular, they have become available for a wider range of markets, including for sports and verticals that may have been neglected when it comes to technological developments. “We’re trying to create an experience that complements what FanDuel is doing and the ability to deliver the right video at the right time to the right person to incentivise them to come back involves different challenges.” “But then we’ve also made something for the more astute punter. We come from a more form-reading background, but traipsing through newspapers, spending hours looking at form takes too long. The BetFinder cuts that down to second. Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter “It’s a little different,” Arnon says. “There’s a lot of the core of what we did for media in this, but there’s new ways to think of it when it comes to building a customer experience. “When we started with the product we offered it as an API solution, but it was rejected by many potential customers who said they didn’t have the resources, other regular excuses that customers like to use,” he says. “But then we made a shift to make it a widget, or maybe even more of a web component. A hub for content While showing content based on past betting activity is the most obvious form of personalisation, both Ziv and Kaplan point out that there are other ways to personalise content too. While this foray into betting only covers one sport for now, Arnon says you need only to speak to those involved with other sports and competitions to see that the appetite exists to broaden the scope. For Arnon, the move to the world of betting has had differences with anything his business had done before. “We have different levels of personalisation. So if we don’t know much about a player’s betting but we know their city or country or language, we can offer betting based on popular teams or sports in that region.” “We know how to collect data on logged in players and we know how to collect data based on cookies,” Ziv says. Overcoming challenges “I think racing has been neglected for a lot of years,” he says. “The online sites have been jumping on the latest bandwagon. Horse racing is, believe it or not, on the rise, but bookies haven’t been putting out new products that engage these customers. Tags: FanDuel Equus LVision WSC Sports Topics: Sports betting Online sports betting Product & technology Sportsbook “BetBooster definitely allows that engagement operators are looking for because it offers a new level of betting,” Ziv says. “It involves mobile notifications. It creates a lot of new engagement opportunities for operators and for the punter it makes the customer feel more involved and more educated. Kaplan says that this type of customisation available in WSC’s product, meanwhile, can be used in conjunction with marketing activities. “Having an online presence is important, but having a way to interact with customers has never been more important given everything that’s happened with betting shops,” he says. “That community aspect from betting shops is something punters will be looking to find something close to online. “All operators, at the end of the day, want things that will increase turnover,” Ziv says. “But assuming that everyone is offering similar markets, that they have similar general offerings, it becomes about engagement.” LVision, meanwhile, found much of the challenge concerned integration. The supplier therefore worked to create a version of its product that could be implemented easily. 1st April 2021 | By Daniel O’Boyle Those highlights are then personalised based on betting activity, so players who bet on an individual golfer are likely to see highlights related to their performance. To Yoav Ziv, vice president for sales and business development at LVision, engaging customers is the most natural way for operators to differentiate themselves. “We work with whoever owns sports media rights, and we have a cloud platform that basically analyses every moment of a game and the context of the moments involved,” Arnon says. “So what was the moment, what just happened, who did it, how important was that moment.
