The French Are Setting Betting Records for the FIFA World CupReading Time: 1 minute

ARJEL, the French gambling regulator, published official stats, with regards to the amount of people wagering over the World Cup. The World Cup is happening in Russia, but the French team is still going strong and there is potential that they may be able to win it.

There are 48 group stage matches that occurred between June 14 and June 28. On those games, French bettors spent 363 million euros. In comparison, the 2014 World Cup saw about 166 million euros wagered, and about half of it was for the group stage. Total, for the entire event 290 million euros was spent by French bettors in 2014.

This year’s World Cup group stage wagering also exceeded the €297m wagered during the 51 competition matches of the 2016 UEFA European Championships.

Of the sum wagered so far on the 2018 tourney, €159m was placed with the 27k points of sale of the Française des Jeux (FDJ) retail sports betting monopoly. The remaining €204m was placed with ARJEL’s 12 online sports betting licensees.

The 2018 FIFA World Cup continues to push sports betting forward all across the globe and China recently revealed great results. According to official data, the segment is on track to reach US$7.5 billion by the end of the tournament.

The US$4 billion figure bet over the first two weeks of tournament amounts to nearly a quarter of what was bet during the full year 2017 and is 300 per cent higher than that reached at the same stage during the 2014 World Cup.

Bede Gaming set for Spanish expansionReading Time: 2 minutes

 

Provider is building on established market presence with fully-licensed and scalable platform

 

Bede Gaming, the award-winning supplier of software to the online gaming industry, is to kick-start 2019 with a concerted expansion in Spain.

The Bede platform is fully-licensed by the DGOJ, the Spanish gaming authority, and features a wide range of cutting-edge, proactive marketing tools alongside a portfolio of more than 3,000 games and two direct sportsbooks with Kambi and SBTech live on the platform.

Responsible gambling is central to the Bede platform, with deposit limits and automated flagging of players displaying signs of problem gambling behaviour setting it apart as the safest place to play.

Ross Haselhurst, Commercial Director, Bede Gaming, said: “Spain is a core target market for Bede as we look to capitalise on the significant commercial momentum of our platform. Spanish operator groups are well placed to take advantage of the transformative impact our vast range of high-quality content and powerful automated marketing tools can have, and we are enthused by the possibilities as we push further into the market.

“We are seeing more and more operators that are looking to expand their footprint but find themselves crippled by the resources required to service new markets while maintaining performance in their core markets. By offering a direct and single route into the Spanish market, we’re predicting significant growth for Bede and our partners in the months to come.”

The growth opportunity in the Spanish market is clear, with online GGR rising 30% year-on-year during Q3 2018 according to the DGOJ.

The provider’s technology is already live in the Spanish market with leading operator Enracha.

Bede has enjoyed a strong period of commercial growth, having been selected by the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation in September 2018 to provide the lottery’s new enterprise-wide digital platform.

This agreement came alongside a series of recent content integrations with leading providers including Play’n GO and SBTech.
