Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

The internet shutdown due to the protests in Belarus has led to negative impacts on IT business, including gaming software developers.

The total number of IT employees has reached 60,000, according to Forbes.ru. Disconnection of the Internet forced 500 executives of various companies to sign the letter, which says about the existing risks that all achievements in the field of high technologies may be lost.

Ivan Montik, founder of the SoftSwiss group of companies, reports that about 60 employees working from Belarus were relocated outside the country.

This situation greatly affects development. According to Ivan Montik, SoftSwiss has highly loaded systems and a large number of active players – about 400,000 in more than 60 projects: they need to be supported every minute, day and night. The expert clarifies that the company employs several hundred people in total in Belarus, and if the situation with Internet access does not change, all employees will have to move to another country.

SoftSwiss joined the initiative of financially help those who suffered from the regime, as well as their families. Thousands of volunteers here have united to contribute with any kind of help around the clock.

Every bit counts, so SoftSwiss invites companies who are eager to join the initiative. If you are willing to contribute with financing or other resources, please contact anyone at SoftSwiss and they will be happy to take it from there.

It’s time for Belarusian players to enjoy Endorphina’s games!

Endorphina prepares to expand in Europe by certifying their games for the Belarusian market!

It seems that there are no ambitions too high for this trendy game provider. In addition to just recently receiving a license by the Romanian regulator (ONJN) and certification in Croatia, they will also be able to provide their portfolio of 80+ hip and innovative games to local Belarusian operators. By being certified, this means that Endorphina’s games have been truthfully tested and approved by GLI to be legally presented in the Belarus iGaming market.

The legalization of online gambling in Belarus began only recently from April 1, 2019, allowing a number of operators to newly enter the market. That was such a huge turning point for the iGaming industry in CIS countries, since Belarus has an exponentially increasing gambling market.
To obtain the Belarusian certification, game providers have to be thoroughly tested by a licensed laboratory to prove their compatibility with the standards set by the regulator.

Jan Urbanec, CEO of Endorphina: “I am proud of the Endorphina team, hitting all the milestones in the newly regulated markets that we set for this year. Belarus is a jurisdiction with potential and we are looking forward to having even more players enjoy our games.”

The Republic of Belarus can fully claim the status of being one of the friendliest countries towards gambling and its players. Thanks to the new certification of Endorphina games, the Belarusian players will be able to enjoy such hits as the Lucky Streak series, Chance Machine 100, Book of Santa and many others which have already won the audience by proving their stable behavior, mathematics, and bringing many endorphins and even more big wins and profits to the local operators.

Want to include these top-notch games with engaging graphics and solid mathematics to your own portfolio to give your players some real endorphins? Contact Endorphina via their website https://endorphina.com/ and get those wins rolling.

The SEE Gaming Business Forum has invited AskGamblers to participate in an iGaming event, the first event of this kind – entirely focused on South-East Europe. The Forum will be held on 20 November 2020 online, with AskGamblers’ Vice President Nikola Teofilovic speaking in the second panel. Teofilovic will be discussing strategies and business models to thrive in the era of digital as well as the latest industry trends on the horizon.

The SEE Gaming Business Forum is the first iGaming event of this kind to focus on South-East Europe entirely. It was initially planned to showcase in Belgrade as a hybrid event but has moved fully online to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all participants and speakers during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Forum will feature IV panels, bringing together casino and sportsbook operators, C-level executives, software suppliers and major providers, payment solutions companies and national regulators that impose taxes and collect money. SEE Gaming participants will discuss business strategy, regulatory obstacles, industry requirements, social responsibility and the role of technology in the industry.

The virtual, interactive platform will give everyone the opportunity to engage in discussion and networking sessions as simultaneous interpreting into English and Serbian will be provided.

Nikola Teofilovic, Vice President of AskGamblers at Catena Media and a part of its Executive Management team, is scheduled to speak in the II panel and discuss strategies and business models to thrive in the era of digital. He will also reflect on the latest iGaming trends on the horizon.

As a true visionary and the epitome of a get-goer who has cultivated AskGamblers from a startup into a leading online casino authority, Teofilovic is, for sure, the right person to talk at this conference. Over the past decade, AskGamblers has proven itself to be the most reputable online casino portal, providing the latest iGaming information and guiding players to a safe gambling experience.

Commenting on his participation in the SEE Gaming Business Forum, Nikola Teofilovic said: “I am beyond honoured to participate in SEE Gaming Business Forum and exchange opinions and experiences with such incredible professionals that are scheduled to speak alongside me. The entire team at AskGamblers puts their heart and soul into the project, and I’m happy it shows. I’m counting days till 20 November and must say have a bit of jitters. See you there!”

The contest of champions will consist of two phases, the Group Stage and Playoffs. The former will have all teams split between two round-robin groups, with players required to win two out of three sets against their opponent. The latter phase will see the top four contestants from each group advance to the Playoffs, where they will battle it out in a Best-of-5 double-elimination bracket.

“We at WePlay Esports recognize that fighting games have all they need to become a form of mass entertainment, just like boxing and UFC. The potential audience of these titles is enormous and includes many generations of casual players. Everyone interested in the MK multiverse will enjoy WePlay Dragon Temple. Our teams will do their best to make this event special, so don’t miss it.” – says Anton Gribovskiy, General Manager Americas at WePlay Esports.

“With WePlay Dragon Temple, our team gets to create a new experience in a title we have never worked on before.

– says Eugene “Hitras” Shepelev, Lead Esports Manager at WePlay Esports.

As an ex-professional player back in Virtua Fighter, I have always had a real passion for fighting games. When I first learned about the event, I was thrilled to get the chance to be involved. It’s awesome how WePlay Esports plan to bring us Christmas early with the Dragon Temple tournament. Together with the team we will do everything possible to make this one of the best Mortal Kombat events you have ever seen!
