Following an incredibly successful launch driving revenue and player engagement for B2B partners, Betinvest’s Sportsbook iFrame is set to continue its winning streak as Igor Popov, CRDO at Betinvest, goes ‘behind the scenes’ to unveil the service’s updates…

The international betting solutions provider Betinvest has enhanced its Sportsbook as a Service delivery model highlighting how their innovative take on sports betting software is ‘more than simple iframe integration’. “Sportsbook as a Service is an approach which is very promising for the whole gaming industry as it enables us to help to expand businesses even faster across the world,” explained Popov. “Our Sportsbook or eSportsbook products can be integrated into a client’s platform anywhere in the world in matter of hours.”

The service was launched in April, just one week after development was completed, with the company reporting zero issues or negative responses since its debut. In spite of this, Betinvest is keen to continue augmenting the solution making it even faster and easier to use and allowing for it be customised for any region via a comprehensive two-level back office – one for operator and the other for provider. “We have improved this solution by giving it multi-domain functionality which means that every operator gets a single back office from which they can work with all of their domains,” added Popov.

“Our clients are able to conduct a comparative analysis of their different brands and operations in different countries. This will help them to monitor their entire business in one place and to develop it based on up-to-date data.”
“We also now offer reactive and proactive risk management systems and a preventive alert system. We provide a variety of tools that enable operators to create groups of high-risk customers and monitor them. They will also be able to limit who can access the back-office settings. This means that if someone works with only banners, teasers and bonuses, they will not have access to the rest of the information in the sportsbook, but they will still be able to create and publish their marketing materials. This is a useful feature for preventing potential problems.”

He added: “One of the benefits of Sportsbook Widget is that, as well as giving our clients a professional-looking sportsbook, we also give them the means to control everything that goes on “behind the scenes”. They can rearrange the components independently to meet their needs, since in some regions it’s not only the content of a sportsbook that is important, but also the layout.”

Sportsbook as a Service delivers two levels of back office, allowing Betinvest to manage and support their clients and the operators to manage their own businesses. Popov said: “Clients can change the content; pause or cancel events; manage high-risk and VIP customers; group customers into categories; conduct marketing; create and award bonuses; alter the advertising settings; create reports and income charts; and edit the frontend. They can manage it autonomously without needing to call us and ask us to do things for them. We give them control. For our part, we take care of all the technical, technological and trading aspects of the business.”

Highlighting the fact that over 75% of the worldwide betting and gambling market operates on mobile devices alongside the ongoing rise of eSports, Betinvest is doubling up on its sportsbook services allowing for more flexibility in terms of how its clients can operate. Popov explained: “It [mobile] became an integral part of our lives in the same way that eSports is becoming a big part of the lives of the next generation. That’s why we also offer our customisable eSportsbook as an individual product within our sportsbook service. We decided to separate our eSports service from our traditional sportsbook so that clients whose main focus is on eSports can opt to use only the eSportsbook without having extra load on their system. We took care to give the product a simple design which includes all the useful features required of an eSports platform.”

Betinvest’s Sportsbook Widget has received high praise from the company’s B2B partners thanks to its cross-market customisation and responsive design for optimised rendering on any device. Commenting on the industry plaudits, Popov concluded: “We’ve helped clients to launch their businesses in a number of different markets and our product has had great feedback from day one. We had complete faith in the product and are proud of the positive results we’ve seen. We believe that the team of developers who worked on this project was the key to our success. They are now providing technical support to our existing clients and integrating the product for our new clients. They’re happy to add features and develop the product in accordance with our clients’ needs and requests. When it comes to B2B success stories, our clients already had established businesses of various sizes, but we hope that, using our product, all of them will see a significant growth in their income over a period of time.”

Why You Should Claim No Deposit Bonuses

Why You Should Claim No Deposit Bonuses
Reading Time: 3 minutes

 

The world of casinos is filled with several bonuses offered for varied reasons, most of which are aimed at making sales. A bonus in itself has been proven to be one of the most significant factors for widespread patronage of casinos. In this regard, online casinos offer more bonuses than land-based casinos, primarily due to the recent surge in online casinos. Now, thousands of offshore casino sites are waiting to service the casino needs of players at every given opportunity.

While some of the bonuses offered to players are directly targeted at some classes of players, others are open to all customers of a casino site. This means that with the very nature of casino bonuses, almost every player at a casino will qualify for one or more bonuses. This leads us to the No Deposit variant of bonuses, which can be found in some casinos, but with a little effort, though.

What are No Deposit Bonuses?

No deposit bonuses are bonuses offered to players for registering an account with a casino, with which they play on real money games. Players are offered these bonuses to test their strengths and weaknesses on some games, and possibly make some cool cash while at it. No deposit bonuses are usually open to new players and are typically a reward for setting an account with a casino site. In some cases, these bonuses are up for existing players with dormant accounts, in which case, the bonuses are used to draw back their attention to the casino.

When a casino offers no deposit bonuses, they usually have some wagering requirements attached, which qualified players have to meet. As a new player, it would be in your best interest to understand the wagering requirements before taking up your no deposit bonuses.

Types of No Deposit Bonuses

Not every casino offers no deposit bonuses, but the ones that provide them typically have the following types:

No Deposit Cash Bonus

This is the most widespread and popular no deposit bonus you see at most online casinos. It is common and popular because it deals with free cash that you can use to wager for real money and eventually win. Cash bonuses awarded on registration heavily come with some wagering requirements in most online casinos.

Aside from the wagering requirements, it usually the practice for players to play on a certain number of designated games only. This means that the fee cash will not be used on some other games outside the ones so listed for the bonus.

No Deposit Free Spins

Free spins bonuses offered to players upon registering their accounts with a casino site. In most cases, the free spins are to be played on selected games by the casino site. The perk of these free spins is that you can win real money while playing them. They are either awarded via a promo code that is peculiar to you or via an open platform on the casino site.

Many online casinos offer some free spins on registration at their sites, mostly to be played on slot games. One remarkable win for players is that no deposit free spins usually have no wagering requirements for players to meet. So, you have a suitable bonus that you can win from, without any wagering requirements accompanying it!

No Deposit Time-specific Free Spins

These are free spins offered to players on the condition that they must be played or exhausted on a particular date or time. Where these are provided to players, they have to keep to the time window stipulated in the offer. Where players fail to do so, the offer will lapse, and the casino would be justified to withdraw the remaining offer, as the case may be. This offer usually has no wagering requirements attached to them.

Why You Have to Claim Your No Deposit Bonuses

The quest of every casino is to maximize profits and keep low or no rates of losses, so bonuses are a strategy to have players flooding online casinos. Suffice this to mean that when casinos offer you bonuses, that is the most direct way of giving back to you, the player. The no deposit bonus is one of the few ways that players almost put in nothing and gaining something in return. Now, that sounds like something every player should be doing anytime there’s an opportunity for it.

No deposit bonuses are some of the toughest things an online casino does, because there is a 50/50 possibility that they may not win you over. So, what happens when you win and decide to leave? You guessed it right! So, you have to claim your no deposit bonuses whenever they are offered because they don’t come by easily.

EGT Opens Office in Czech Republic

EGT Opens Office in Czech Republic
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Euro Games Technology (EGT) has opened an office in the Czech Republic. This new office will provide sales and service facilities to the Czech market.

Ivan Grigorov and Adam Vajdak are the General Managers at EGT’s Czech office. Leading a team of 13 professionals, they will endeavour to keep the high global EGT standards and to fulfill their mission to provide a top range of gaming content and products, aligned to the local specifics.

“The regional gaming market is well developed and saturated and all domestic manufacturers have already established good image. Compared to some other countries though it lacks enough presence of worldwide known brands where we find our potential. The gaming regulations and requirements are very strict and particular and are a serious entrance barrier for all new providers, but we are accustomed to fulfilling exacting criteria and are confident that will be able to achieve satisfying results in the next several years. For the purpose we will mainly rely on EGT’s main R&D department with which we cooperate closely in tailoring our products to the local specifics, especially when it comes to the software. Our major advantage is the vast experience we have accumulated from our global operations, the speed of service we achieved and the good knowledge we have firsthand for our customers and players, as me and my partner Mr. Grigorov have been in the casino business for many years not long ago,” Vajdak said.

The Czech office will provide the complete slot portfolio of EGT, as well as the products of EGT Multiplayer and the online games of EGT Interactive. Currently, the company offers the multigame mixes Green and Blue Collection, each of 12 diverse and highly appealing titles, and the cabinets P-24/24 Up, P-27/27 St Slim and P-27/32H St. Its near-future plans include the gradual expansion of its product proposals with machines and gaming content, based on clients’ expectations and players’ preferences.

“Czech market is mainly oriented to slant top and upright cabinets, as well as fruit-themed games and here EGT has a lot to present. In line with the domestic standards our products are modern and represent the high-end technologies, so we see them as the future of the local gaming industry. They were developed to maximize the comfort and were also designed for top level satisfaction of both operators and players. The mere slogan of EGT ‘We give more,’ speaks volumes,” Ivan Grigorov said.

The emphases of EGT’s professional approach in the country will be the maximisation of products’ performance. The company plans to install 300 gaming machines in the next 2–3 months in some of the best locations in the market.

“Unfortunately the COVID-19 crisis hit all industries, gaming included, slowing down our plans a bit. In Czech Republic the most common call during the state of emergency was ‘Together we will manage.’ Now the casino business is slowly returning to normality, so hopefully we will be able to say soon that we did manage together. So we will measure the success of our local office with the number of satisfied customers. This will be my priority and the mission of our team,” Grigorov said.
