Leading supplier takes latest major step in growth strategy execution with the launch of Bettarget

Aspire Global, a leading B2B provider of iGaming solutions, has taken yet another key step in the execution of its growth strategy by launching the first brand on its platform with BtoBet’s sportsbook. The objective is for the larger brands operating on Aspire Global’s platform to have migrated to BtoBet’s proprietary sports solution before the end of the year.

Aspire Global acquired the sportsbook provider BtoBet in October 2020 and BtoBet has subsequently successfully expanded its operations by being awarded strategic certifications in e.g. the UK and signing key customer deals with partners like Betfair and William Hill in Colombia. Aspire Global, with close to 90 brands operating on its leading iGaming platform, has now successfully integrated and launched BtoBet’s cutting-edge sportsbook on its proprietary platform.

The first brand which is live on Aspire Global’s platform with the BtoBet sports solution is bettarget.com which is initially targeting the Irish market. The rollout with more brands will continue during the fall as Aspire Global obtains regulatory approvals. The objective is for the larger brands to have migrated to BtoBet’s proprietary sports solution before the end of the year.

Tsachi Maimon, CEO at Aspire Global, said: “With this launch, we have proven our ability to integrate a strategic product we recently acquired. This is yet another key step in the execution of our effective growth strategy. Having our own proprietary sportsbook opens up for numerous growth opportunities with both existing and new customers, especially in Europe, the US and Latin America.”

Reading Time: 3 minutes

This year’s F1 Esports Series Pro Championship presented by Aramco started with a bang as we were treated to three thrilling races in Event 1, with Aston Martin’s Lucas Blakeley securing his first ever F1 Esports Series victory, before reigning champion Jarno Opmeer showed he won’t give up his crown without a fight with back-to-back wins which put him and Mercedes at the top of the Drivers’ Championship and Teams’ Championship standings respectively.

Event 2 sees the drivers take on three of the most iconic circuits in motorsport, as they get ready to do battle at Silverstone and Monza on Wednesday, before attention turns to Spa on Thursday. While the Pro Championship is only a quarter of the way through, picking up points here will be crucial as teams fight to get their hands on a share of the $750,000 prize pot.

The live shows will be streamed online via official Formula 1 channels on Faceboo, YouTube, Twitch and Huya, as well as broadcast on television by select international partners including the likes of Sky, ESPN and Fox Sports, whilst Qualifying show content will be streamed exclusively on Twitch and YouTube.

Ahead of this week’s Event 2, we spoke with four drivers, all looking to build on impressive performances in Event 1, with all quotes below available for use in editorial.

Marcel Kiefer – Red Bull

“The level of competitiveness is definitely super high this year. One of the new guys that has come in Bari Boroumand is super quick and I would already rate him as one of the fastest on the grid. What he’s done in league racing and his raw pace is super fast. There are definitely a few additions to the grid that are super quick. The speed of everyone probably does mean that it is more competitive than last year.”

Lucas Blakeley – Aston Martin

“We have got a lot more things right this year from the beginning. I’ve put a lot of work in personally in the off season for months and months, not necessarily on the F1 game. I focussed on utilising every aspect that would help me to go quick and that doesn’t necessarily mean improving lines into corners. I’ve been optimising every area that I physically can and I’ve become a more complete driver.”

Sebastian Job – Alpha Tauri

“The one thing I’ve learnt is to surround yourself with people that are better than you and then you can learn from them. That’s what I’ve done coming to a new game, I’m surrounded by people that are better than me at this game and it gives me the perfect way to improve. The speed at which I’m improving is really promising and that’s because of my teammates.”

Josh Idowu – McLaren

“We’re looking very strong [heading into Event 2], in particular Bari [Boroumand] who had some crazy pace from the first Event especially in qualifying which I would say is the hardest part. Once he can get it together in the race, I would expect a lot of wins from him.”

WePlay Collectibles: See You at OpenSea
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

The WePlay Collectibles non-fungible tokens hit the OpenSea marketplace.

The first NFT collection from WePlay Collectibles on the OpenSea NFT marketplace, “Shooter: from A to Z,” will drop in November. 50% of the collection’s token sales and the additional NFT Trophy token will go as Runner-up Award to the team that will take second place in the WePlay Academy League Season 2.

OpenSea is the world’s first and one of the largest digital marketplaces where people buy and sell exclusive crypto assets. It is in this NFT marketplace that WePlay Collectibles will release the first tokens — A and B — from the alphabet NFT collection “Shooter: from A to Z” on November 1. Between November 1 and 13, WePlay Collectibles will auction two more tokens daily on the platform.

“Shooter: from A to Z” will include 26 unique tokens, one for each letter of the alphabet. The things that are near and dear to shooter fans have been minted to become one-of-a-kind NFT items — the collection consists of notable words and phrases associated with popular first-person shooter games. Fans may try to get them all or choose a special one they like the most. All released tokens of the collection can be found on the official WePlay Collectibles website.

Participation in the auction is a chance to snatch a unique digital item and support esports in general. WePlay Collectibles endorses budding esports teams, so half of the total token sales of the “Shooter: from A to Z” collection and additional NFT Trophy token will go towards cheering up the team that lost in the finals as the Runner-up Award within the WePlay Academy League Season 2.

The WePlay Academy League is a training ground for academies of the world’s leading CS:GO organizations. The league provides up-and-coming players a real tournament setting to help the participants grow and hopefully find themselves on the main roster of the team one day.

The Runner-up Award was created to reflect the main vision of the WePlay Academy League project. There’s no rise without a fall on the professional esports scene. The WePlay Academy League youngsters should get through this, and WePlay Collectibles will help to cushion the first fall.

Once a token is released, collectors will have 24 hours to place their bids, so stay tuned for upcoming news.

“When creating our collection, we focused on designing an entertaining collection based on memes from the heart of the esports community and helping novice fans get to know esports better. Besides, we’re certain that “Shooter: from A to Z” fits the WePlay Academy League philosophy.

The goal of the WePlay Academy League is to nurture and train up-and-coming CS:GO players, while the collection intends to teach or remind the audience about the unusual and amusing terminology of this discipline. Buyers purchase tokens and boost the development of the WePlay Academy League project and novice teams.

Plus, the very idea of ​​the Runner-up Award matches the WePlay Academy League approach. A never-give-up attitude is the main message that we are sending via this collection because it’s also a challenge for us,” says Alena Dalskaya-Latosiewicz, chief communications officer at WePlay Holding and project lead at WePlay Collectibles.
