Sportradar has launched A1now, an OTT product for the leading digital and telecoms provider A1 in Austria.

It will provide users with Live and Video On Demand (VOD) content across sport, music and entertainment, including matches from the Austrian Football Bundesliga. A1 has signed to be an official rights holder for the coverage of esports competitions and A1now originals productions.

Sportradar recently launched their next-level Sportradar OTT, with a newly developed engine and core that seamlessly connects Sportradar’s range of sports data with video capability. Clients have an even greater and more refined ability to enhance the user experience, create content, engage with fans, increase audiences and therefore generate more revenue.

Managing Director OTT at Sportradar, Rainer Geier, said: “We are proud to extend our existing long-standing partnership with A1. We put a lot of work into our next level OTT product that allows our clients to connect video and data and contracting partners like A1 and Borussia Dortmund endorses the value of that work. The partnership with A1 is a long standing one and one of genuine cooperation so it is particularly rewarding to be able to carry on that work.”

Tanja Sourek, Co-Head of A1now TV Creation/Marketing and Sales at A1 added: “We are continuously enhancing the content offering we put in front of our customers. The launch of the A1now OTT platform is another important step for us in this direction. We look forward to creating new ways of engagement with this OTT product and Sportradar is a great partner for us in realising these ambitions.”

Supplier launches with Löwen Play following social casino success

  Premium slots and table games provider Habanero has staked its claim in Germany as one of the first suppliers to go live under the jurisdiction’s newly regulated framework.

The provider’s immersive social casino offering has already proved popular in the country, having recently debuted earlier this year in partnership with Löwen Play GmbH.

Germany-based players can now also enjoy Habanero’s acclaimed real-money games catalogue, shortlisted for both SBC and EGR awards, which launched in the territory on October 15th, the day that its online gaming market formally opened.

The content developer’s German debut follows an impressive series of agreements it has signed with globally renowned operators such as Marathonbet and Bet365, as well as Southern European leaders including SuperSport and Lottomatica.

Arcangelo Lonoce, European Head of Business Development at Habanero, said: “Germany is set to become one of Europe’s most important markets in the coming years, so it’s fantastic that our hit games went live on the day its regulatory framework came into effect. 

“Our partnership with Löwen Play has been of strong mutual benefit, and we anticipate that the company will continue to go from strength to strength in Germany and beyond.” 

Tal Zamstein, Managing Director at Löwen Play’s Digital Unit, said: “Habanero’s world class portfolio has already been hugely successful with our social casino outlet, so we are thrilled to introduce players to its celebrated real-money catalogue.  

“Recent months have seen the studio further strengthen its position among Europe’s fastest-growing suppliers, and we have no doubt that it will continue to attract new audiences going forward.”

Zeal Network Raises Fiscal Year Guidance After Strong Q3 Performance

Zeal Network Raises Fiscal Year Guidance After Strong Q3 Performance
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

German lottery provider ZEAL Network has raised its fiscal year guidance after posting better than expected preliminary results for Q3 2020.

Supported, among other things, by the good jackpot development of the German lottery Lotto 6aus49 in Q3 2020, the continued high marketing investments led to a growth in billings, revenue and new registered customers that exceeded expectations.

Due to the increased marketing investments of €25.3m (2019: €17.9m) to acquire new customers, ZEAL was able to gain 787,000 new registered customers in the German segment in the first nine months of 2020 alone, with a preliminary CPL of €27.58.

According to preliminary calculations, billings increased by around 42% to €471.8m in the first nine months of 2020 (2019: €332.6m). The German segment contributed a preliminary €470.9m to this.

In a year-on-year comparison, it should be noted that ZEAL 2019 offered additional products in the secondary lottery business which were discontinued in October 2019 due to the business model change. Moreover, Lotto24’s online lottery brokerage business has only been part of ZEAL Group since 14 May 2019. The Lotto24 billings up to that date were, therefore, not included in the previous year’s figures.

Due to the expected revenue dis-synergies in connection with the business model change, revenue decreased by a preliminary 31% to €63.9m (2019: €93.2m). Similar to billings, revenue in the first nine months of 2019 still included the secondary lottery business, but not Lotto24’s online lottery brokerage business up to 14 May 2019. Revenue in the German segment amounted to a preliminary €57.8m in the first nine months of 2020.
