Leading distributor highlights the power of its unique campaign rewards tools for augmenting retention and digital dwell-time with Swedish studio

QTech Games, the leading games distributor for Asia and all emerging markets, has released the results of its latest Tournament Partnership case study, following a recent campaign with leading Stockholm-based studio, Thunderkick.

Responding to market demands amid the shifting landscape of the “new normal” post-COVID-19, this network slot tournament was powered by the sustained success of QTech’s market-leading campaign rewards tool, QT Tournament.

The report, premised on a 20-day tournament exclusively featuring Thunderkick’s progressive portfolio, unpacks three distinct periods of monthly player activity, each generating increasingly favourable results with the previous month for retention and turnover. For headline growth, Gross Gaming Revenue (GGR) rocketed to 26.3% month-by-month, with QT Tournament rounds soaring by 24.02%.

Thunderkick’s strong pipeline of innovative games, featuring immersive graphics and unique gameplay features, quickly fuelled players’ passions with classics such as Pink Elephants and Carnival Queen, ably abetted by exciting new releases like Crystal Quest – Deep Jungle and Sword Of Khans. All of these titles, and many more besides, were made available to QTech partners over the tournament where players competed for a whopping $15,000 in prizes.

QTech’s wider series of provably successful and flexible tournaments offers players the chance to turn their loyal spins into prizes during competitions on across their favourite titles. Players accumulate points in a variety of ways, such as consecutive wins, successive losses, or large multiplier wins. Unique gamification layers also include live leaderboards for each event, which update in real-time, permitting players to track their progress throughout the tournament, promoting engagement and improved dwell-time.

Fredrik Ekholm, Account Manager at Thunderkick, said: “QTech’s pioneering platform is setting the pace for bringing the best online games to market across emerging territories. So, it’s been great for us at Thunderkick to join forces with them, as our immersive games perform and connect with a wide variety of players in new markets, bolstering user-engagement in the process.”

Ulf Norder, CCO at QTech Games, added: “At QTech, we pride ourselves on responding to market needs and pressing player trends, which is why we launched QT Tournament in the first place. This industry-first campaign rewards tool allows any operator to create their own tournaments across the entire QTech suite of products, or they can simply select the specific games or studios which they want to promote. Both the adoption-rate and operator demand are outstripping our initial projections, while this exciting Thunderkick collaboration provides another eloquent case study. It’s a fantastic time to be showcasing their impressive games.

“QTech’s tournament campaigns frame the perfect opportunity for rising-star providers like Thunderkick to boost their games by delivering extra exposure and sustainability. Moreover, it’s an influential marketing tool for operators when it comes to ramping acquisition and retention rates by offering players a life-enhancing win from minimal stakes.

“At QTech, our modus operandi remains: one integration for all emerging markets. In fact, against the backdrop of Europe becoming more and more competitive, there’s a need for one partner for all developing territories. And naturally, one of the key aspects for sustainable and repeatable results is to have the correct games, verticals and tools at your disposal.”

MiFinity, the secure iGaming eWallet, today announced a new partnership with online casino operator N1 Interactive Limited. The MiFinity eWallet will now be available as a payment method for customers in some of N1 Interactive’s European markets across 37 brands.

As one of the most popular casino brands on the market, N1 Interactive offers a wide range of payment methods for players in different regions. MiFinity will be working with N1 Interactive to help increase conversions by providing players with their preferred payment method via the MiFinity eWallet.

Paul Kavanagh, CEO at MiFinity, said: “We have considerable experience in N1 Interactive’s key European markets, providing customers with localised payment methods via our eWallet. With over 40 integrated payment methods, we can significantly reduce the risk of a player abandoning the cashier across all N1 Interactive’s live brands.”

N1 Interactive added: “We’ve onboarded MiFinity because they offer a wide range of local payment methods in our target markets, as well as having an in-depth understanding of these markets. With their support, we can provide better service to our players and streamline the payment journey, increasing conversions and removing transaction barriers.”

With the MiFinity iFrame, brands like Casino Universe, Slot Hunter Casino and N1 Casino can provide players with the option to use their MiFinity eWallet within the cashier experience. Once players have signed up for a MiFinity eWallet, they can choose their preferred local payment method to transfer funds. Then, players simply select the MiFinity option directly in the cashier for deposits and withdrawals when playing online.

Paul Kavanagh said: “Removing unnecessary steps in the payment journey, such as navigating to a 3rd party payment page, positively impacts conversion rates. Similarly, providing players with localised payment methods, multiple currencies, and multilingual options reduces the risk of cart abandonment. Our iFrame does all this within the brand’s cashier, providing a seamless customer experience.”

The ACMA has requested that Australian internet service providers (ISPs) block more illegal offshore gambling and affiliate marketing websites.

The sites include Casino Moons, Winnerama, Extra Vegas, Win Paradise, LegitGamblingSites and Gamblers Lab.

The ACMA investigated and found these services to be operating in breach of the Interactive Gambling Act 2001.

Website blocking is one of a range of enforcement options to protect Australians against illegal online gambling. Since the ACMA made its first blocking request in November 2019, 568 illegal gambling and affiliate websites have been blocked.

Over 170 illegal services have also pulled out of the Australian market since the ACMA started enforcing new illegal offshore gambling rules in 2017.

Entain to Pay £17M Penalty for Online and Retail Failures

Published

Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Entain, the global sports betting, gaming and interactive entertainment Group, has confirmed that it has agreed a regulatory settlement with the UK Gambling Commission (UKGC) in respect of alleged historical licensing breaches. The regulatory settlement amounts to £14m in respect of Entain’s digital business and £3m in respect of its retail business.

Entain has entered into the regulatory settlement with the UKGC in order to bring the matter to a close and avoid further costly and protracted legal proceedings. Entain accepts that certain legacy systems and processes supporting the operations of its British business during 2019 and 2020 were not in line with the evolving regulatory expectations of the UKGC in respect to aspects of social responsibility and anti-money laundering (AML) safeguards. However, the Group also notes the UKGC’s statement that it found no evidence whatsoever of criminal spend within Entain’s operations.

The issues raised by the Commission relate to the period between December 2019 and October 2020, which predates the many changes in the area of safer gambling and AML that Entain has introduced. For instance, in 2021 Entain launched its Advanced Responsibility and Care (ARC) programme which, using revolutionary AI technology, operates in real-time and is individually tailored for each customer. The initial trials of ARC in the UK have shown a risk assessment accuracy of over 80%, a 120% uplift in the use of safer gambling tools by those most at risk and a 30% overall reduction in customers increasing their risk levels.

Furthermore, in May of this year, Entain was awarded the Advanced Safer Gambling Standard by GamCare, having evidenced the highest standards of player protection and social responsibility for its online and land-based gambling businesses in Great Britain.

As part of the settlement, Entain has also agreed to appoint a Board sponsor to oversee the implementation of any further improvements identified by the original 2020 compliance assessments and to undertake an independent audit of the relevant policies and procedures at a future date.
