Progressive platform provider migrates international operator OGaming’s roster of brands in rapid time

Award-winning sports betting & iGaming technology provider, FSB, has further extended its jurisdictional footprint after announcing that it has reached an agreement to be the platform provider for the renowned German iGaming group OGaming.

The landmark deal further widens FSB’s sportsbook and PAM presence on .COM and regional platforms and means that OGaming’s international and local properties, previously supported by a major Tier 1 provider, are now fully powered by FSB’s much acclaimed full tech-stack platform.

The full onboarding of the OGaming network from their original supplier to FSB was completed a mere two months after an agreement was reached between the multi-brand organisation and award winning platform.

This rapid and challenging migration was only possible due to the increasingly agile and contemporary nature of the FSB technology stack.

With full data transfer and regulatory compliance also achieved within this condensed time frame, FSB continues to expand it’s global footprint in regulated territories within various continents.

Dave McDowell, CEO of FSB, said: “This partnership with OGaming is significant for FSB as it further grows our global jurisdictional presence, marks our arrival as a major platform provider across Europe and proves that we can win significant business from our key competitors. What I’m particularly proud of is the incredibly fast turnaround of this operation.

“Within just two months we’ve managed to complete the full-stack migration including data from OGaming’s previous platform provider to FSB and built the requisite regulatory features for German compliance including dual wallet integration.

“This demonstrates the agility and flexibility of our next generation technology and the deep reservoirs of committed talent we have. We make things happen at FSB.

Tom Golding, Executive Chairman of OGaming, said: “To offer players the best experience in the market, we required a new, state of the art platform that would allow us to take our offering to the next level. FSB not only met but exceeded our expectations and we are thrilled to be powering our brands with their technology in such a short space of time.”

Guild Esports, a global esports team organisation, took sixth place overall with team Guild X in the inaugural VALORANT Game Changers Championship, held in Berlin (15-20 November).

Following a year of intense regional competition, the world’s most elite Game Changers squads went head-to-head in person, for the first time ever, to crown a global champion in Germany. Bringing together the best teams from North America, Brazil, EMEA, APAC, LATAM and East Asia, G2 Esports won the Grand Final to lift the coveted championship trophy.

Supporting women in gaming is a key part of Guild’s strategy within the sporting community, aligning with the aims of Game Changers to create new opportunities and exposure for women and other marginalised genders within VALORANT esports.

The tournament in Berlin, with over 150,000 viewers* tuning in, demonstrates how women in gaming and teams such as Guild X are not just changing the game but also breaking records. According to Esports Charts, Game Changers has become the most-watched tournament for women’s esports.

On Sunday, Guild also hosted a watch party at the Sky Guild Gaming Centre in Shoreditch with talent Elz the Witch, Iain Chambers plus other influencers such as Megsoundslikeegg and Geo Collins in attendance. Even though Guild X was not in the Grand Final, Guild, along with its supporting partners Sky and Subway, wanted to offer a safe space for VALORANT fans to watch the finale, especially women and marginalised gender fans.

Jasmine Skee, Chief Marketing Officer at Guild Esports, said: “Our vision at Guild is to lead the way in supporting the future of women in gaming, and we are committed to equal opportunities for our Guild X players. The Game Changers Championship in Berlin was a hugely successful event and we are extremely proud as an organisation to have been a part of it. Congratulations to all at G2 Esports on their victory in such a milestone event for the esports industry. With the announcement of the new Game Changers format, we’re excited to watch our Guild X team, and the wider women esports industry, grow.”

Guild X has been confirmed this week as automatic top-tier qualifiers for the VALORANT Game Changers EMEA 2023 competition, with relegation rules now being in place as part of the new format changes announced. The Game Changers tournament will continue to break down stereotypes, elevate women and allow them to further their careers in a dedicated safe space, and provide a platform for professional growth both in and outside of the game – all actions that are completely aligned with Guild’s strategy moving into 2023 and beyond.
