Established in 2020, Casino Horse, a casino affiliate website, joined the thriving iGaming industry with a clear goal- to bring more value to players from all over the world. Providing honest and thorough reviews on the best online casinos, informing punters on the most rewarding bonuses and newest games, are just some of the main tasks of the hard-working team.

Motivated to become a must-visit destination, this rapidly growing community is eager to conquer the international audience. With an excellent assortment of UK casinos, and plenty of suggestions for consumers from South Africa, Canada, New Zealand, and all over the globe- the platform covers it all.

Thanks to the simple and intuitive design, visitors can find the desired information in a matter of seconds. On top of that, there’s a possibility to open an account and save the preferences. Created from players by players, the page offers the finest tailored experience and plenty of insightful data.

After all, the majestic animal found in the site’s name holds the reputation of man’s most loyal companion in battles. It symbolizes power, independence, freedom, nobleness, endurance, confidence, triumph, heroism, and competition- the exact same set of qualities and virtues the team behind Casino Horse possesses.

What Differs Casino Horse from the Competitors? 

Gathering a team of enthusiastic and dedicated developers, writers, and editors, this platform works passionately, day and night, to provide honest, and independent first-hand information.

Wanting to build the reputation of a trustworthy go-to platform, Casino Horse approaches every review with the same level of attention. Uncovering layer by layer, digging deep to find as much relevant information as possible, analyzing and comparing- those are just some of the phases of exploring new games, bonuses, and casinos.

Being up to date is essential in this industry, and this forward-thinking community knows that. Gambling laws and regulations, as well as the Terms and Conditions of casinos, are susceptible to change- and this team keeps all eyes wide open for every single update and modification.

Aside from delivering detailed and informative reports, this affiliate website provides players the opportunity to customize their experience.

How so?

By opening an account on this website, they have the chance to create a list of their favorite brands and enjoy a fully personalized experience.

To open an account, one should only fill in a simple form. A couple of basic data are needed- full name, user name, and e-mail address and that’s it. Once this step is completed, the next thing that comes is the favorite list.

Even though joyful words like “fun, entertainment, rewards, winnings, bonuses”, are the first ones that come to a player’s mind when talking about gambling, there’s much more than that. The seasoned visitors are already familiar with how everything works, and have a precise routine on how to approach new casinos, but what happens with those who are just getting started?

There is so much information to process, and so many steps to take before you can be sure that you’ve found a casino that fits your demands. And that’s where the convenient favorite list steps in.

This practical and useful tool enables you to design a personalized list of casinos you have visited. Having in mind that a decent number of them allow you to play in demo mode, you will be able to have a couple of rounds and evaluate whether you like it or not.

Based on that, you will rate and rank every single betting facility, and as a result, you will end up with your very own list of must-visit and best-to-be-avoided destinations.

What Can Players Find on Casino Horse?

Though the platform is a relatively new name in the industry, it has a well-structured concept and a great idea of how a dedicated website that reviews gambling facilities should look like.

Entering this specialized platform, a visitor will encounter four main categories– casinos, bonuses, slots, and news. Each of them is filled with plenty of insightful information. Of course, as the platform grows and gradually expands, new components will be added.

Here are the main highlights from each of the categories:

Casinos

In this section, punters have a couple of options- online casinos, casino reviews, new casinos, mobile casinos, and casinos by country. With these practical categorizations, a visitor can find the desired information almost instantly.

When writing casino reviews, the team analyzes all the key aspects of a betting shop, thoroughly exploring every single corner of it. Those are games and provider selection, bonuses and VIP scheme, banking policy, customer support, and mobile optimization.

Getting in touch with the support department, having a couple of rounds on several slot games, inspecting Terms and Conditions- that’s how the journey to an insightful casino review looks like.

In case some data is missing, the team always informs players that they should be extra careful. If the wagering requirements are too high, or too many countries are restricted, in case fees are charged- be sure that you will be informed.

Bonuses

This section encompasses casino bonuses, bonus reviews, welcome bonuses, no deposit bonuses, free spins bonuses, and reload bonuses. As we all know, these incentives are not always what they may seem to be on the fancy surface, which is why each punter needs to investigate a bit before claiming them.

Learning how to recognize a good one and differ noteworthy deals from scams- that’s what Casino Horse will show you how it’s done. How to claim a bonus, why is it important to look for min deposit, win and cash-out limits, what does a game contribution mean- all the answers are found right there.

Slots

Casino slots, slot reviews, Halloween slots, video slots, and new slots- these are the subsections. Each of the components of a game is thoroughly described- theme, game mechanics, features, payout table, and RTP.

There’s also an option to filter the slots by game providers, RTP, paylines, reels x rows, and Jackpot. Speaking of content providers, the platform hosts the finest achievements by NetEnt, Microgaming, Nolimit City, Playtech, Yggdrasil, Endorphina, and Tom Horn Gaming, with more to be added.

At the time being, slots are the only ones displayed, simply because they are the most popular and most played. But, table and live dealer games will also get their dedicated space where they will be able to find out all there is about their favorite card and dice games.

News

How to start gambling online? Is there a way to beat wagering requirements? Is it possible to cheat on slot machines?

Those all-time popular whats, whys, and how-tos will simply never get old. No matter how many articles are already written, there’s always room for more new opinions and perspectives. And the team behind Casino Horse wanted to give players their two cents on these hot topics.

Why is Casino Horse a Must-Visit Destination for Players Worldwide?

After you finish exploring the above-mentioned sections, scroll down to the bottom of the website. You will spot a couple of links that lead to GamCare, BeGambleAware.org, and GamStop. This indicates that the platform puts special focus on player’s safety and protection, pointing out the huge importance of staying responsible.

Aside from providing a plethora of information on where to find the heftiest bonuses, which are the most popular slots, how to beat wagering requirements, which casino has the best cashout limits, this team promotes responsible gambling.

Only when all participants, operators, and players, act responsibly, the industry can thrive, leaving all sides satisfied. And Casino Horse’s mission, as an affiliate website, is to make sure things remain like that all the time, and coexist in perfect harmony. Knowing the immense power of true information, the team will keep on bringing more value to clients all the time, by introducing them to “best casino websites rated by real players”.

Be informed and gamble responsibly!

Published

Reading Time: < 1 minute

BAFTA’s team of panellists will announce and discuss the nominations live, give their opinions on the outstanding games we’ve seen from the industry in 2023 and recognise the creative talent who made them.

Lucy James said: “I’m so excited to be returning to host the BAFTA Games Awards nominations stream for the 2024 Games Awards. BAFTA’s commitment to uplifting and celebrating the people who make the games we love is an incredibly important endeavour: now more than ever. 2023 will go down in history as one of the greatest years for video game releases ever, but also for being one of the worst for the industry. Sadly, 2024 looks to be continuing this trend with multiple project cancellations, studio closures, and mass layoffs. It’s important for us to take a moment to band together to recognise the contributions and achievements of our hard-working and talented peers.”

Luke Hebblethwaite, Head of Games at BAFTA, said: “We’re hugely excited to be revealing the nominees for this year’s BAFTA Games Awards and couldn’t be happier than to have five such energetic and knowledgeable voices to lead us through the big moment. I’m looking forward to their lively and insightful reactions and a great conversation as we celebrate the amazing talent, creativity and hard work behind the best games of the year.”

The world’s most prestigious annual celebration of excellence and creative achievement in games, the 20th BAFTA Games Awards, will take place on Thursday 11 April at the Queen Elizabeth Hall, Southbank Centre, London and will be livestreamed on BAFTA’s YouTube, Twitch and X channels at 19.00 BST / 14.00 ET / 11.00 PT.

Sportradar publishes third annual integrity report

Published

on

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Sportradar Integrity Services, a unit of Sportradar (NASDAQ: SRAD), today published its annual report, ‘Betting Corruption and Match-fixing in 2023’, detailing the company’s findings into suspicious betting on global sport. Based on the monitoring of approximately 850,000 events and matches across 70 sports, the report highlights a total of 1,329 suspicious matches in 2023, occurring in 11 sports in 105 countries.

Compared to 2022, the data indicates the suspected manipulation rate in all sports remained steady at 0.21%, or one in every 467 matches in 2023. Similarly, the analysis has marked no single sport having a suspicious match ratio greater than 1%, confirming that 99.5% of sporting events monitored had no suspicious betting detected.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) assisted in detecting almost three quarters (73% or 977 instances) of all suspicious matches in 2023, representing a 123% increase when compared to 2022. While AI integration into Sportradar’s Universal Fraud Detection System (UFDS) has boosted detection rates, analysis by our integrity experts is essential to ensure accurate interpretation of data. Sportradar is committed to advancing both AI capabilities and human oversight to protect the integrity of sports.

Key findings in 2023:

· As the world’s most popular sport for betting, soccer continued to be the most affected by match fixing with 880 suspicious matches, followed by basketball with 205 matches, then table tennis with 70 matches.

· Account-level betting data was used to detect 85% of suspicious matches in volleyball, and 100% of suspicious matches in tennis and table tennis, underscoring the importance of collaborating closely with the sports betting industry to combat match-fixing and integrity threats.

· Europe had the highest number of suspicious matches (667 vs 630 in 2022), followed by Asia (302 vs 240 in 2022) and South America (217 vs 225 in 2022).

· 1,295 suspicious matches came from men’s sporting events, while 34 came from women’s sporting events.

Data and reporting from Sportradar Integrity Services last year contributed to a total of 147 sporting and criminal sanctions, spanning 10 sports in 23 countries across 39 cases, underlining the company’s credentials as the established market leader in integrity services. By supporting over 220 partners globally including sports organisations, state authorities, national platforms and law enforcement agencies, Sportradar is committed to keeping sport clean from threats such as match-fixing, doping and other forms of fraud and corruption.

Andreas Krannich, EVP, Integrity, Rights Protection and Regulatory Services, said: “Continued investment in the development of technology is key to detecting otherwise hard-to-find occurrences of match-fixing. In combination with access to account-level data, collaboration across the industry and human experts, we have a suite of powerful tools to help both prevent and detect risks to sports integrity. Further advancements in the fight against match-fixing will be possible as the AI models continue to learn and we will keep honing our expertise to protect sport from manipulation.”

Sportradar takes a holistic, multi-faceted approach to match-fixing detection, powered by its market-leading technology and expert Integrity Services unit. As well as account-level data, the UFDS analyses 30 billion odds changes across 600 global betting operators in real-time and uses advanced AI to detect and flag suspicious matches to Sportradar’s global team of integrity analysts. Supporting this effort is also the Sportradar Integrity Exchange (SIE), where more than 70 betting operators proactively submit suspicious betting information, using account-level betting data to detect and flag suspicious matches.
