Analyzing How To Uberize The iGaming Industry With A Glocal Approach

Analyzing How To Uberize The iGaming Industry With A Glocal ApproachReading Time: 2 minutes

 

BtoBet unfolds its latest Industry Report prior to flying to ICE London

With the first years of the iGaming industry defined by the use of inflexible in-house technological solutions, nowadays there is general consensus that the use of technology developed by tech visionaries is the only way forward to guarantee constant innovation and an optimal player experience.

In its latest Industry Report, “Uberizing iGaming with a glocal approach”, BtoBet analyses the industry’s past rigid approach to technology, and its own current endeavour to uberize the market through a harmonization process of cutting edge technology, which easily morphs itself to the different business and market scenarios, constantly adapting itself on a local level.

In his dedicated editorial, BtoBet’s CEO Alessandro Fried states that it is of the utmost importance for operators to have at their disposal advanced technological solutions which they must couple with the right knowledge and expertise from a local perspective in order to meet all their pre-set goals. “It is a must to keep in mind that one size does not fit all. Technology that excels itself in a mature market will not work in a more technologically limited context and thus will have to adapt itself. The eventuality of making it big in one local market does not necessarily mean that adopting the same approach will eventually pan out as expected in another, even if neighbouring, country. Obviously this applies also vice versa. But for this to work out without any hiccups you must also have the correct know-how of all the the various aspects that constitute the context where licensees will be operating.”

The Report also focuses on the unique elements that constitute the White Label Partnership (WLP) Program, the industry’s first real uberization model, where technology and operational services are streamlined in a holistic way for White Label Operators to easily access the online channel, even without their having the prior expertise in this particular field. Particular reference is made to the Latin American region, with the WLP Program expanding in the region via the certified partnership with Wildar Gaming who will start delivering BtoBet’s advanced technologies and operational services in the region to other White Label Operators.

Download BtoBet’s latest industry report and schedule a meeting to meet our team of experts who will be present at ICE London at S1-320 to analyse and understand which approach best fits your operational requirements.

New Jersey to put a cap of $5 million on sports bet

New Jersey to put a cap of $5 million on sports betReading Time: 1 minute

 

New Jersey gaming regulators are bringing in a new set of betting regulations, which would put a ceiling of $5 million for betting.

As per the new regulations, sportsbooks cannot accept bets over $5 mm. There’s no indication that any New Jersey sportsbook has taken a bet anywhere close to that figure, but the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement seems interested in being cautious. However, it is definitely not impossible that a sportsbook has already taken a multimillion-dollar bet. Collectively, the state’s books have already taken more than $1.25 billion worth of bets.

“No wager in excess of $5 million can be accepted for any reason,” read a line in the 106-page document of proposed regulatory changes. It is known that the median wager on DraftKings Sportsbook in New Jersey is less than $10, so the limit is relatively astronomical and probably will have no impact on anyone’s bottom line.
