The UK Gambling Commission (UKGC) has issued advice to consumers about online gambling. In light of the government’s latest requirement to stay at home during coronavirus outbreak, more people are now engaging with online gambling websites.

The major guidelines from the UKGC involve setting gambling limits, self exclusion for those need it and warning about illegal overseas operators.

The gambling websites allow users to set a limit on how much they can spend. The UKGC advises customers to use it without fail. The commission has also partnered with Twitter that would allow the users to set a limit on how much gambling content they could see.

For those spending too much time gambling online, or those who want help to stop gambling, the UKGC advocated self exclusion. The commission also warns about the possible risk of illegal overseas websites trying to seek UK customers. The commission will be tracking and taking action against such sites, but it asks customers to ensure that the website they are gambling with is licensed. To check whether a site is licensed, customers can check out the link to the Gambling Commission’s Licence Register.

Todd Haushalter, the Chief Product Officer of Evolution Gaming, has revealed that Evolution is going to release its most expensive casino game ever. Crazy Time was the most expensive game in terms of money and resources to produce in the company’s history so far.

“I think it’s the most fun casino game ever made. It’s definitely the most expensive casino game ever made – it took the most resources to make it,” Todd Haushalter said.

“It’s just this carnival of activity. It’s like Monopoly, in the sense that it’s a wheel game, but the wheel is just loaded with bonuses that take you off in different directions. There are bonus games in the game and it’s just so cool and so fun – it’s in the true spirit of one of these great game shows; there are just shows within the show. I can’t wait to get it live,” Todd Haushalter added.

Bet365 Renews Ad Protection Partnership with White Bullet
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

For many people, the idea of gambling on eSports might seem a little crazy. However, as eSports increase in popularity, it has naturally gained the attention of the sports betting crowd!

Download the bet365 app, for example, and you might notice some action on eSoccer or CSGO right on the homepage, not something you would have expected to see even a few years ago!

The times are changing, and you should expect that to continue long into the future if you are on the bet365 app. This is because bet365 has started to work with Sports Information Services (SIS) to help transform their eSports betting platform, improving your betting options and coverage of the sector.

With the rapid growth of the sector, huge competition pay-outs and big sponsorship deals, the stigma around eSports and video games has been all but consigned to the history books.

On top of this, with almost all of the normal sports we watch (outside of the German Bundesliga) being written off due to COVID-19, it’s time to start thinking outside the box and have a flutter on something more virtual instead!

A new era for eSports betting

With more and more people tuning in to watch eSports than ever before, the industry is experiencing a real boom. People who might have once scoffed at the concept are now more interested than ever before.

Streamers like Ninja and Dr Disrespect have reached celebrity status garnering hundreds of thousands of views across streaming and content platforms. Groups like Team Liquid are dominating competitions with net winnings in excess of $32,000,000 and capturing the minds of young, aspirational players dreaming of making it big in their chosen games.

The variety of eSports games is also a worth consideration, those sports fans accustomed to the horses, dogs, football etc. can now explore anything from deeply tactical games such as Dota or League of Legends to something far more fast paced and action-packed like Call of Duty or Rainbow 6 Siege. Of course, there are still the more direct parallels such as eSoccer games!

Interestingly, the SIS partnership means that bet365 users will soon be able to bet on live head-to-head competitions. This means that you could be taking part in bets on major eSports platforms like the SIS Blitz League. If you miss the excitement of watching a live match with money on the line, then you’ll find some great bets on games over on the Blitz League!

With the entertainment-pool starting to look a little dry after 2 months of lockdown, now is the perfect time to start familiarising yourself with something new. Head over to Youtube or Twitch, pick a game and start searching, you’ll find thousands of competition replays and post-game tactical analysis videos to get you started. You might be surprised at how in-depth eSports can be and once you get your head around this, maybe you can find your edge!
