Jackpot risk-management specialist to drive customer retention for leading operator

 

13th June 2018, London – RISQ, the B2B-only jackpot risk management specialists, have announced a deal with GVC to roll out their unique jackpot solution across the leading operator’s suite of brands. This new partnership begins with a free-to-play prediction game which adds a fresh dimension to customer acquisition and retention, gearing jackpot payouts up to €11 million* on the World Cup.

The Wallchart Jackpot prediction game will be showcased on bwin, GVC’s flagship European sports betting brand, which has launched the ‘Maradona’s Millions’ promotion to tie-in with the brand’s blockbuster ‘Who Stole the Cup?’ World Cup campaign, which as well as featuring Maradona also includes football royalty in Cafu, Vicente del Bosque and Stefan Effenberg. Maradona’s Millions offers players the opportunity to win up to £/€5 million* by correctly predicting the winners and runners-up of each group in the initial stage of the tournament and the winner of every knockout match up to and including the final.

As well as challenging players with forecasting the results of Russia 2018, the free-to-play Wallchart Jackpot mechanic facilitates the combination of various individual stats and player-performance markets in accumulator-style propositions, covering every angle of the event for deeper user-engagement.

The RISQ-backed game forms part of GVC’s wider marketing strategy for this summer’s showpiece event, allowing the multi-brand operator to expand its global footprint across numerous jurisdictions and regulatory frameworks when it comes to both free-to-play and real-money gaming.

This deal is also an industry first, inasmuch as RISQ are providing GVC with the flexibility to employ lottery, RNG and other sports predictor applications, as jackpots become an integral part of the gaming landscape for transforming marketing initiatives and product offerings.

RISQ’s B2B Director, Tom Mitchell, said: “It’s incredibly satisfying for our jackpot solution to have been integrated by such a huge name as GVC. Incorporating an intuitive free-to-play game with any sportsbook generates a proven benefit across a number of KPIs – especially as reliable cross-selling techniques and user-engagement become ever more elusive commodities for operators.

Our research overwhelmingly suggests that participation in free-to-play games exponentially ramps with higher jackpots. So with our game-changing Jackpot RNG raising the bar on these prize funds across the board – and up to €11 million for GVC – the possibilities are endless for boosting new accounts and fostering a loyal customer base across all platforms and devices.

Claus Hansen, Head of CRM at GVC, added: “Partnering with RISQ has helped up to set new standards in delivering promotions at GVC. Combining their cutting edge B2B platform with our broader marketing assets has enabled us to create a standout promotion in the intensely competitive landscape of the World Cup.

The elasticity they offer provides multi-product flexibility (whether it be lottery, RNG or FTP sports games) giving us a unique chance to employ jackpots in a scalable, tailored fashion across the entire group of brands.

Integration of EGT Global Jackpot with Winbet and Club King Marks Great SuccessReading Time: 1 minute

 

The EGT Global Jackpot’s integration with Winbet and Club King has achieved success through offering entertainment and winnings for both operators and players.

The operators’ success and players’ entertainment are always the core objectives of EGT sales, development and production teams. When innovation joins these approaches, EGT solutions are the reliable choices for winning businesses.

EGT supports the operators to make proposals to its customers they couldn’t refuse, with the integration of the EGT Global Jackpot into their gaming halls. Global Jackpot is developed to connect all slot machines and any type of roulette from all locations of operators across the country. Thus, the total bet generates the possibility of higher winnings compared to those offered by the local jackpots.

At Winbet, the Global Jackpot has been functional since March this year and has brought multiple winnings to the luckiest players. Recently, Club King has also integrated the Global Jackpot in favour of top entertainment and winnings for both operators and players.

New York State Lottery Reports Record Revenues for the 2018 Fiscal YearReading Time: 1 minute

 

The New York Lottery has recorded $8.2 billion in sales for the state fiscal year that ended in March 31, 2019. That includes sales from Powerball, Jackpot, Mega Millions, Scratch Off, Quick Draw and other games, plus revenues generated by the state’s licensed video lottery locations.

The video lottery net win for the 2018-2019 fiscal year was $2.08 billion, third largest in the world behind two Italian lottery operators. The combined sales and net win earnings for the last fiscal year are a new record for the New York Lottery. The New York Lottery generated $3.47 billion in aid designated to support the state’s schools.

The lottery revenues are distributed to school districts according to the same formula used for state aid. A larger, poorer district will receive a higher percentage than a smaller, more affluent one. Lottery contributions account for 13% of all state aid to education for 2018-2019.

Spillemyndigheden Introduces Whistleblower SchemeReading Time: 1 minute

 

Spillemyndigheden, the Danish industry regulator, has launched a new whistleblower scheme for the employees of gambling operators who wish to report evidence of money laundering.

Spillemyndigheden has detailed that employees can report a company’s violation or potential violation of the anti-money laundering legislation to the regulator via a dedicated, anonymous contact form which will then trigger a legal investigation. All submissions will be encrypted to ensure that submissions are secure.

In April, Spillemyndigheden has blocked access to 25 gambling websites after petitioning the country’s telecommunications providers. Danish internet providers have now been obliged to block access to ten igaming sites, in addition to 15 skin betting websites.
