Do we call it the father of software developers in the gambling field? Well, Microgaming happens to be the pioneer of these developers. The developer was launched in 1994 and for years, it has been doing well in releasing games. The company continued to license their games to make the customers trust them and of course, it worked.

Currently, Microgaming has over 800 casino games and 500 variant games. Amazingly, this was the first company to come up with progressive slot machines. As a pioneer, they are very quick in developing new games in almost every field. Some of their games include Mega Moolah, Avalon, Games of Thrones, Double Exposure Black, and the Thunderstruck.

2. NetEnt
This is another platform that is renowned in the casino world. Net Entertainment (NetEnt) is most known for its beautiful graphics and extraordinary games that they release. When it comes to originality, this company stands out among most developers that’s why they are very innovative in their games.

NetEnt has great slot casino games that have spiced the world of players. It has over 200 games including Jack Hammer, Blackjack Pro, Jack & Beanstalk, South Park, Starburst, Guns ‘N’ Roses, Aliens, and Gonzo’s Quest.

3. Playtech
This is one of the most famous software developers in the casino world. Most people believe that this is the largest among the other giants in this field. Playtech was established in the past two decades precisely in 1999. This developer is renowned for developing bingo halls, online casinos, sportsbooks, live casinos, and poker rooms.
They work very closely with other well-established operators in this field like William Hill, Betfair, Sky, and Bet365. As the developer continued to excel, it ends up acquiring Ash Gaming. One of the renowned online slots that this developer has released is Marvel. They usually offer live dealer games although the US players don’t get access to their services.

4. IGT
International Gaming Technology (IGT) is another great name in the gambling industry. They have been in the market since 1971 although they were into the brick and mortar casinos, not the virtual games. They eventually gained a great reputation in this field and got outstanding experience.
Some of the games that IGT is associated with include Family Guy, Wheel of Fortune, Ghostbusters, and CSI among others. When it comes to the slot, they don’t have a wide selection as compared to the other companies.
5. BetSoft
This company may not be so famous as Playtech and the other big names in the casino industry but it is exceptional in a beautiful way. It releases slots and some famous table games. It is unbelievable that Betsoft is the one leading in 3D slots.

They got unique ways of getting bonuses and unique randoms that make every slot fanatic smile. Some of their famous games include True Sheriff, At the Copa, Good Girl Bad Girl, and Rook’s Revenge. Their table games are not so impressive like their slots.

Impact of COVID-19 on Virtual Gambling Sector: ConnectPay Calls to Fortify Payment Security as Industry Fraud on Rise

Impact of COVID-19 on Virtual Gambling Sector: ConnectPay Calls to Fortify Payment Security as Industry Fraud on Rise
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Online gambling has increased during the pandemic. Evidently, so did the illegal activity related to the industry. Scammers are abusing the vulnerability of the circumstances, which is reflected by the rise in financial fraud and exploitation schemes. ConnectPay, an online banking service provider, encourages businesses, especially the ones considered to be higher-risk, to make the security of payment transactions their top priority in order to build trust with new and existing clients, and protect them from falling victim to fraudulent payments.

Illicit activity concerning monetary transactions has been a long-standing issue for the virtual gaming industry even prior to the pandemic, with financial crime estimated to be at $2.1 trillion per annum. That said, the COVID-19 crisis has brought new challenges as new fraud schemes started to plague various markets. This has influenced some countries, fearing an increase of illicit activity in online gambling, to issue tighter measures for the vendors to protect consumers during the lockdown.

“The increased online gambling sessions correlate with the noticeable jump in payment transactions”, explained Liutauras Varanavičius, Head of Business Development at ConnectPay. “When comparing data from January with the stats from April, we have noticed a 30% increase in gambling-related transactions. Even though it’s hard to predict how prolonged will the aftermath of the pandemic be, the necessity of instating more precautionary measures to support secure payments is too apparent to be left unaddressed.”

The surge of online gambling activity has greatly increased the public’s exposure to digital risks. While others are capitalizing on the crisis, businesses have to face the conundrum on how to disassociate from the perpetrators, remain credible and retain their target audience.

“The spike in fraudulent financial activity could hit the sector even harder than others: it’s already under a magnifying glass due to the nature of acquired revenue, thus any association with financial fraud could be leveraged as a pretext to revoke acquired licenses and restrict business”, said L. Varanavičius.

As the global health crisis continues, the need for reliable security measures and prevention of illicit financial flows will only continue to grow. Implementing timely and adequately prepared safeguards to combat arising threats is paramount, as, until brick-and-mortar casinos are once again operational, gambling industry relies on digital-only vendors.

Preserving secure payment transactions could be the difference between remaining operational or having to close up shop. The pandemic has already hampered AML supervision and presented new threats that could aid criminals in avoiding customer due diligence. However, having acknowledged current obstacles enables businesses to evaluate measures that would help avoid being juxtaposed with illicit activity and choose partnerships accordingly.

To keep the scammers at bay, ConnectPay continuously invests in innovative fraud prevention solutions, latest AML safeguards and other smart tools, helping companies in underserved markets to maintain credibility and keep the associated risks to the bare minimum. Furthermore, the company places high emphasis on a thorough screening process: this prevents taking on clients involved in unethical business practices, limiting the grounds for financial fraud. In 2020, ConnectPay is planning to invest additional 750 thousand euros in Anti Money Laundering and Counter-Financing of Terrorism compliance solutions.
