Wazdan, the leading global slot supplier, has seen 30 of its top-performing and newest titles certified for the Belarussian market.

The provider’s complete collection of Hold the Jackpot games has been certified, including latest releases Midnight in Tokyo and Fortune Reels. Belarussian players will also be able to play such hugely popular hits as 9 Lions, Larry the Leprechaun, Telly Reels™, Choco Reels™, and Black Horse™ Deluxe.

Only land-based casino operators in Belarus can apply for an online licence in the country and all licensees now have the opportunity to offer Wazdan’s content.

The achievement marks yet another market debut for Wazdan, who in the last 12 months has entered Switzerland, Colombia, Spain, Portugal, Denmark, Italy, and New Jersey, as the supplier continues to outline its credentials as a leading company in the regulated space.

Andrzej Hyla, Head of Sales at Wazdan, said: “We pride ourselves on our approach to regulated markets and we’re very excited to have a considerable array of games certified for Belarus.

“From our sought-after Hold the Jackpot games to top-performing staples, we’re very pleased with what we can bring to players in Belarus and look forward to making big strides in the market.”

GAMSTOP bi-annual review shows a 25% rise in registrations in first half of 2021

GAMSTOP bi-annual review shows a 25% rise in registrations in first half of 2021

GAMSTOP, the free national scheme for self-exclusion from online gambling, has reported a 25% increase in registrations in the first six months of 2021, comparative to the same period in 2020.

The surge in registrations is a key finding of the first GAMSTOP bi-annual review, which has been launched to give greater insight into trends on the GAMSTOP platform, and broader insight into gambling behaviours across the UK.

The review found that:

  • In total, more than 40,000 people registered with GAMSTOP in the first half of 2021, with March of 2021 the second biggest month for registrations on record.
  • By the end of June 2021, the total number of GAMSTOP registrants was more than 218,000
  • The gender split of those registered with GAMSTOP is 70% male and 30% female.
  • Of those registered with GAMSTOP, 58% select the maximum exclusion period of five years.
  • Younger people were most likely to register with GAMSTOP: 41% of registrants were in the 25-34 age bracket, a figure rising to 59% when taking into account the wider 18-34 age bracket.

Recent statistics from the Gambling Commission show that growth in online gambling remains the largest combined sector by GGY (Gross Gambling Yield). Online gambling makes up over 50% (52.3%) of the entire gambling market.

The first ever independent evaluation of GAMSTOP, conducted by research agency Sonnet, found that GAMSTOP is used by a broad cross section of ages, ethnicities and socio-economic groups, which suggests that people from all demographics are experiencing problems with their gambling. The survey of 3,300 registered users found that the ethnic makeup of GAMSTOP users corresponds with the broader UK population (89% white, 3% Asian, 2% Black, 1% Mixed).

The socio-economic situation of respondents also varied, with 29% living in households with a pre-tax income of more than £48,000 per annum and 48% in households earning more than £32,000 per annum. More than 75% were in full or part-time employment and 63% had no children in their household.

Fiona Palmer, GAMSTOP CEO, said:

“While it is encouraging to see that consumers are continuing to find GAMSTOP and use it as a crucial safety net in their recovery, this review reinforces the importance of continuing to raise awareness of practical tools that are available to those struggling with gambling-related harm.

Our evaluation results demonstrate that gambling-related harm is an issue that affects people from all walks of life, irrespective of income, location, or gender. It is imperative that we continue to reach people from across the UK, and to give them access to tools that can aid them in their recovery, or form an important preventative measure.”

Stacey Goodwin, a recovering problem gambler and GAMSTOP registrant, said:

“It’s encouraging to see that the number of registrations for a vital service like GAMSTOP is increasing, but it also shows the significant amount of gambling in our society. More needs to be done to support and get the word out about crucial safety nets and services, like GAMSTOP, to ensure that vulnerable people know about them, and most importantly that they use them.”

The new solutions utilise state-of-the-art modular affiliate technology and leverage Spotlight Sports Group’s unique heritage in creating industry-leading sports betting media.

The catalyst for new product development follows research from Nielson that 55% of sports fans declare an interest in sports betting. With some traditional digital revenue streams approaching maturity, media companies can use Spotlight Sports Group’s Publisher Solutions as a viable route to accelerate revenue growth.

The suite of products contains a range of services from affiliate management to content creation, to performance tracking and analysis, all of which is managed by Spotlight Sports Group. This allows media companies to simply plug in the unique solutions to their platforms in up to 70 languages.

Discussing the new-look offering and website, Spotlight Sports Group’s Head of Digital B2B Will Fyler said: “We are ready to expand our global value proposition, especially given the recent acquisition of Alarm Sports Network. As well as a global website refresh to reflect our growing proposition, we are delighted to present a range of new products such as our Turnkey Affiliate Solutions, Smart Widgets and Free-To-Play games that cater for media companies globally.”

Fyler added, “Sports fans are interested in sports betting and, given the global growth of betting, there is a significant opportunity for media publishers to provide their sports audiences with great content and products while also increasing revenues.

We also know that providing betting-related content and products effectively is labour intensive and difficult. However, as a media company operating Racing Post among other brands, we are in a fortunate position that over the last 30 years we have built up the range of skills to achieve this and so we can now offer bespoke Publisher Solutions tailored to any media company’s audience.”
