Award-winning platform provider launches private bookmaker into digital realm

Award-winning platform provider FSB has announced its recent roll-out of a digital sportsbook and online casino for Fitzdares, which has once again been nominated for Racing Bookmaker of the Year.

FSB has integrated its flexible sports-betting solutions across the Fitzdares service, which now also features a highly-customisable new app, elevating the user experience for all clients.

This leap into the digital sphere has allowed Fitzdares to create two tiers of membership. While the private bookmaker still retains its traditional Private Office service for high-staking members, it’s also introducing another path to membership for new customers who are seeking a superior level of service than typical high street operators are able to accommodate.

Running off FSB’s unique pricing models, Fitzdares customers can now enjoy sophisticated and reactive in-play odds, with competitive pricing on all sports arriving in perfect time for the new year’s packed sporting calendar.

Fitzdares CEO Will Woodhams said: “FSB’s state-of-the-art sportsbook platform aligns perfectly with our dedication to major sports and traditional betting markets. Above all, we believe in creating a fantastic experience for our members, who expect nothing less than the highest level of service from us. Just weeks after launch, thanks to a range of extra little benefits, the increased activity we’re witnessing is hugely encouraging.

“This flexible sportsbook platform and perfectly-crafted app allow us to focus entirely on our members’ needs in a way that no other bookmaker can. As well as our highly skilled team who cater to the Private Office members via telephone and text, the app now means we can share the Fitzdares experience with others, too. As the latest app in the industry, it’s fast-loading, intuitive and easy to use.”

Richard Thorp, Business Development Director at FSB, added: “We’re thrilled with this partnership, and delighted to see the app has already proven a hit with their clients. FSB’s tailored approach sets us apart with a very modular, flexible swathe of solutions that are easy to partition and light to deploy.

“We look forward to evolving our managed solution with Fitzdares over the coming year, enabling them to refine their digital offering, without ever sacrificing the customer-first approach that has made them so successful.”

FSB is fresh from being crowned Sportsbook Supplier of the Year at the SBC Awards 2018.

UK NHS to Open Gambling Clinic for Children

The UK’s NHS is going to open its first gambling clinic for children.

According to the Gambling Commission, there are 55,000 children classed as having a gambling problem in Britain. The Commission also found that a total of 450,000 are gambling regularly.

“This action shows just how seriously the NHS takes the threat of gambling addiction, even in young people. The links between problem gambling and stress, depression and mental health problems are growing and there are too many stories of lives lost and families destroyed,” Simon Stevens, the NHS England chief executive said.

The move was welcomed by Carolyn Harris, the Labour MP for Swansea East, who said attitudes around problem gambling was at last shifting. “For too long the industry has dismissed problem gambling but now is the time for polluters to pay,” she said.

“The clinic will open as part of a new network of services for addicts being rolled out as part of the NHS Long Term Plan. Specialist face-to-face NHS treatment for gambling addiction has only been available in London but is being made available across the country as part of the new strategy,” NHS England said.

Senator Joseph Addabbo’s mobile betting bill has failed to progress through the New York Assembly. The legislative session saw S17 fail to progress beyond the Assembly Standing Committee on Codes.

Addabbo tweeted that he saw no clear reason why the state could not implement mobile sports betting in 2019. Failure to do so would see the state miss out on around $75m in revenue, funding for education, and both job creation and retention.

“NY will be stuck like a disabled car on the shoulder, while we allow an illegal sports betting business in our state thrive and idly watch other neighboring states pass us up with enormous revenue gains from mobile sports betting,” Addabbo said.

Eldorado Resorts Inc., the US based casino operator, has agreed to merge with Caesars Entertainment Corp through a $17.3 billion cash and stock deal.

The deal, which is expected to be announced soon, values Caesars at close to $13 a share. The combined company’s ownership would be split roughly between Eldorado and Caesars shareholders.

An Eldorado spokesman said the company did not comment on rumours or speculation. Caesars did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

The combination of the two companies would create a serious competitor to larger casino industry players, such as Las Vegas Sands Corp, Wynn Resorts Ltd and MGM Resorts International.
