Gamesys, the UK-based gambling operator, has decided to reduce marketing exposure during the COVID-19 pandemic. The decision came amid UK’s advertising watchdogs warned sportsbooks to ensure the proper way to promote eSports betting markets.
Last week, the Gamesys group issued trading update for Q1 2020. The revenue increased by one fifth on a year-on-year basis. The group posted a total revenue of £155.3mn. The company noted strong growth in Asia and a solid performance in the UK. In the US, the company posted double-digit growth.
The company released an acknowledgment that due to the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic, children and problem gamblers are spending much more time at home. This has also increased the time they consume media, be it Radio or TV or other platforms. This has made Gamesys take the decision to suspend the untargeted customer marketing. The company said that this has prompted the company to suspend all the TV and Radio advertising. The advertising would cease to exist until the social restrictions are eased that are imposed now. The company is, however, to continue online marketing but will suspend direct mail marketing and untargeted digital advertising.
Even though Gamesys announced the proactive steps, the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) of the UK continues to issue guidelines. The ASA sent another reminder to gambling operators to ensure their ads are socially responsible. The Committee of Advertising Practice (CAP) issued another piece of advice to the bookmakers that eSports betting related advertisements should comply with the rules and it should also apply to the other forms of gambling advertising.

Supported by the Association of Gaming Equipment Manufacturers, G2E 2023 will highlight the continued evolution of every aspect of the industry — from traditional and online gaming to digital payments and new technologies like AI. G2E is the premier gathering of commercial and tribal gaming professionals globally. The four-day event will feature exhibits, education sessions, and networking events.

Recent updates include expansions to the platform’s mobile check-in process with shared and multi-room digital keys and full ID verification. The platform continues to offer casino resorts the widest range of digital guest experience features including customizable guest-facing branded mobile apps, and marketing and promotion support to draw guests to food and beverage options or to straight into promoted gaming events and activities. The platform also helps casino resorts drive non-room revenue and, with INTELITY’s smart-room tablets, allow guests to digitally order in-room dining, adjust in-room temperature and lighting controls, review casino resort compendiums, and even continue gaming from the comfort of their hotel room.
Additionally, INTELITY will showcase uses and examples of its latest platform APIs supplying casino properties with existing apps with access to the INTELITY platform’s suite of guest experience capabilities brought into their custom-created environments, including casino resort apps, embedded or interactive tablets or displays, and captive portals.
On the operations and staff side of the house, the INTELITY platform includes INTELITY’s GEMS (Guest Experience Management System), a robust back-of-house ticketing and operations solution. Featuring more than 100 certified integrations with industry-leading systems, including PMS, POS, ticketing, in-room controls, spa management, and more, INTELITY provides an extensive suite of solutions for independent and enterprise-level operators.

We can’t wait to welcome back the global gaming community to Las Vegas this October to chart the future of gaming,” said AGA Senior Vice President Maureen Beddis.
“For the gaming and casino resort industry, G2E is the must-attend show. As such, we are excited to connect with the industry and showcase the latest updates to the INTELITY platform that not only improve the guest’s in-room experience, but their gaming experience, as well,” said Benjamin Keller, INTELITY SVP of Sales & General Manager of Customer Relations.
