GLI Asia is Celebrating Ten Years of Service to the Macau Gaming MarketReading Time: 2 minutes

MACAU, China (February 13, 2018) – As we enter the new year, GLI Asia is celebrating ten years of service to the Macau gaming market and to the operators, regulators, and suppliers of the surrounding regions in Asia-Pacific. The expert testing and consulting staff has been honored to diligently serve clients in land-based gaming, online gaming, and lottery sectors with unsurpassed skill and commitment, and like the year of the dog teaches us, GLI’s customer-focused approach is centered on the qualities of honesty, loyalty, and responsibility.

GLI Asia officially opened for operation on 20 July 2007. Since that time, the lab has grown to more than 300 square meters (about 3,300 square feet) and is the most structured test lab in Asia.

It has been an honor and a thrill to see our business grow with customer demand. It is especially humbling when our customers return to us again and again, asking us for additional service offerings, allowing us to grow along with them,” said Marina Wong, GLI Asia’s General Manager of Client Services.

Another exciting aspect of GLI Asia’s Macau presence is its positive impact on the local economy, with each of the lab’s employees being local Macau residents. In fact, four employees have been with the company nearly since the lab’s opening. Julian Lei and Nathan Chang have been with the lab since 2009, and Ben Leung has been with GLI Asia since 2010. Their long-term presence and insights are a boon to GLI’s clients and to the lab’s other employees.

We are proud that so many of our employees have chosen to stay with GLI Asia for so long,”Wong said. “Their experience is incredibly valuable to our clients, and to the other staff members. When new employees join us, they are able to quickly learn from our long-term employees and expand their knowledge base.

Because of their expertise, GLI Asia staff have become in-demand speakers on lottery issues throughout the Asia-Pacific region.

Today the lab serves clients of all sizes in land-based gaming, online gaming, and in lotteries. Key services the lab provides include testing for hardware, software, platforms, systems, games, and

GLI Asia also helped successfully develop China’s first gaming technical standard – “Technical Gaming Standards for Online Lottery Systems and Betting Terminals.” The lab has also executed numerous high-profile lottery projects in Beijing, China; South Korea; and Taiwan.

For Wong, the GLI Asia staff, and for GLI as a company, over the past ten years, the mission has remained the same: “We put the customer first,” Wong said. “We understand that when our customers succeed, we succeed. When regulators rest easier, when suppliers are able to speed up their time-to-market and reduce expenses, when operators’ casino floors are compliant and secure, and when the products are fair for everyone – that is when we know we have succeeded, together.

So what does the future hold for GLI Asia? Wong said, “As we celebrate the year of the dog, we will continue to keep in mind our focus on honesty, loyalty, and responsibility. That is how we have earned both regulators’ and our clients’ trust, and we will continue to work hard every day to maintain that trust and to continue to be the most reliable lab in Macau, in Asia, and in the world.

PointsBet into the legal New Jersey betting marketReading Time: 1 minute

 

PointsBet has launched its online sports betting platform in New Jersey, had become the ninth operator to enter the legal New Jersey sports betting market. PointsBetting is essentially a high-risk form of spread-betting that rewards players with more money.

The company explained how PointsBetting works: “If a user bets $10 on the over, and the total ends 10 points over, that nets users $100. Stop-loss settings are able to be set by a bettor if they wish to limit their win and loss position. Users will still be able to make fixed odds wagers, which give a simple win-or-lose scenario.”

New Jersey residents can access PointsBet in web browsers via PointsBet.com or by downloading the PointsBet mobile app for Android or iOS.

Johnny Aitken, PointsBet US CEO said: “We’re extremely excited to bring PointsBet’s premium and game-changing sportsbook and signature betting options to the US.

“By offering some of the world’s sharpest betting offers and prices, we have the back of all sports bettors, no matter how sophisticated they are, and we’re serious about offering a one-of-a-kind VIP betting experience.”

PointsBet is also partnered with Tioga Downs Casino in New York and will launch sports betting operations in New York if the state moves to legalise sports betting.

FDJ aims digital transformation to fuel its developmentReading Time: 2 minutes

 

FDJ Group announced €15.8 bn in player stakes in 2018. FDJ distributed €10.7 bn to players, a return rate of nearly 68%, an increase close to 1 point over 2017.

Stéphane Pallez, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of FDJ Group said “The continued growth in player stakes reflects the good execution of our FDJ 2020 strategy around areas such as innovation and digital, enhancing the appeal of our games and distribution channels. 2018 has been characterised by numerous successes, notably Mission Patrimoine games, illustrating FDJ’s redistribution model. These results underpin our ambition to anticipate changes in the gaming and entertainment sector to increase the Group’s leadership with richer and innovative gaming experiences”.

 The FDJ 2020 strategic plan aims at accelerating the Group’s digital transformation to fuel its development. In 2018, the group got benefited from increase in digitalisation of all games. This success confirms our strategic goal of reaching 20% by 2020. This digital growth was driven by online gaming as well as electronic player stakes at points of sale.

ParionsSport sports betting posted strong gains in player stakes. FDJ is one of the Top 10 sports betting operators worldwide. Player stakes recorded during the World cup reached €333 m, an increase of +75% over the 2014 event, mostly attributable to the French team’s performance. The overall trend remained strong, with +8% growth in non-World Cup player stakes.

ParionsSport also signed major four-year partnerships with four leading French football clubs (Olympique de Marseille, Olympique Lyonnais, AS Monaco, and FC Nantes), and launched the “Parions Club” challenge with each of them, giving the top punters in each club a VIP treatment in stadiums or at points of sale, in addition to their winnings.

Player stakes in lottery, instant lottery and draw-based games, grew 1.1% to €12,770 m. Player stakes on instant lottery games (scratch-card games in point of sale and digital) continued to grow, +3.2% to €7694 m.

Digitalisation drives growth in all lottery games, whether instant lottery or draw-based games. On-line lottery games were up +12% thanks to the steady increase in new players, with close to 1.9 million players at the end of 2018, and very frequent marketing events in the online gaming portfolio, with a launch, a relaunch, or a modification every week.

In 2018, FDJ stopped charging rent for point of sale equipment and started paying commission on promotional and free coupons. This year, a new commission structure has been introduced, with different rates across the various product lines and price ranges. In this context, net commissions earned by FDJ retailers were €785 m in 2018, up 5.7% on 2017.

After internalising its sales force and setting up its own logistics, FDJ has completed its business transformation and has direct control of its network.

The Group has continued to make substantial investments in points of sale, specifically in technology and equipment.
