IT infrastructure challenges in the online gambling industry

Reading Time: 2 minutes


The online gambling sector is booming and there are more clients and companies than ever before. This rise has led to competition between providers. Those that can offer the best experience will enjoy the most revenue. A part of this experience is ensuring that everything works well IT-wise. For IT managers this means staying on top of a potentially endless list of issues and matters.

Seamless user experiences

Bugs, errors, and crashes are the ultimate adversaries for online gambling customers. A crash or bug at a crucial moment such as spinning or placing a bet can cause huge financial losses and a lot of inconveniences.

The best way to manage these issues is through the use of log monitoring software. This can help IT managers stay on top of messages, alerts, and issues from dozens of network items. Managing logs efficiently leads to swift resolution of issues, as well as prevention. This in turn makes for happy clients!

Compliant databases

Whether you’re operating in the EU or not, you will need to consider various data protection rules. For example, the EU has rules that apply to any EU citizen, even if they are accessing a service from a non-EU country. These rules apply to storing personal data, how customers can be contacted, and how long information can be stored.

These rules are strict and can incur significant penalties for violations. Thankfully there is software out there that helps IT teams ensure compliance. It can assess mailing lists, databases, and customer records and help with the management of data covered by various rules and regulations.

Random number generation

One of the critical components of a betting or gambling site is a random number generator or provably fair algorithm. In games of chance, numbers must be generated for the game to progress. To keep the game fair, these numbers must be generated randomly. Many licensing authorities will insist on it.

Your options are a random number generator that’s authenticated by a third party or a provably fair algorithm. The latter is an algorithm that ensures all numbers are pretty generated. Results are stored on the blockchain and can be checked by players at any time.

High speeds

When running an online gambling site or a gambling app, you need to ensure high speeds. Of course, it’s up to your players to have suitable quality devices and a good internet connection as well. But there are many steps you can take to be sure that things run smoothly.

If your site or app is sluggish, your players will get frustrated and likely look elsewhere. Staying on top of this is one of the best things you can do to keep customers loyal and happy.

IT is always unpredictable and there are always things that will go wrong. But being prepared and having the right toolkit at your disposal will be an integral part of doing your job well. In turn, customers will be happy, will spend more, and are likely to recommend the site to others.

Mischievous betting brand Paddy Power presents an eyebrow raising ‘drama with balls’ after teaming up with creative agency Octagon for their latest ad campaign. 

“Bingoton” was formally rolled out in a fashion befitting the brand’s proverbial bingo debutante today (23rd September).  

Written and art directed by Jonny Watson, Dan Harrison and Neil Richardson of Octagon UK, and directed by Jim Gilchrist of Outsider, the 30-second TVC will get its first showing on ITV this evening during Coronation Street.  

The commercial takes viewers back to the early 19th century, with Miss Bingoton and her lady-in-waiting assessing a selection of ‘gentlemen callers’, cleverly creating a humorous parallel with the perils of modern-day dating.  

According to Josh Green, Executive Director at Octagon, this was the ideal comical conduit to convey the Paddy Power Bingoproposition:  

“In the simplest terms, bingo is drama with balls. That’s how the idea of Bingoton was born.” 

Tom Muldowney, Head of Gaming Marketing with Paddy Power adds:   

“We wanted to make a ballsy ad and Miss Bingoton felt like the perfect leading lady to convey our ‘more chances’ message. That’s with the exception of the Suitor who sent her (Charles) Dickens pix. He remains on the cutting room floor.”    

The advert opens with stunning views of high society types gathering at the palatial grounds of Bingoton Manor. Centre stage is Miss Bingoton, who is joined by her lady-in-waiting and Master of Ceremonies, all of whom eagerly anticipate a parade of potential suitors for her viewing pleasure.   

Suitor Number 10 gets the (bingo) balls rolling. But he’s quickly dismissed by Miss Bingoton who instructs her footmen to “swipe left” on her behalf.   

  Suitor Number 3 is quickly dispatched in an equally decisive manner, having been judged by Miss B to be “catfishing again” after she takes in his dated and unrecognizable profile painting.  

Trying his luck next is Suitor Number 66, a handsome gentleman from Essex who only has eyes for his own reflection.   

“The only way is EXIT,” she giggles under her breath to her lady-in-waiting.  

Paddy Power’s latest campaign comes with all the easter eggs punters have come to expect from the mischievous brand, who manages to marry drama (and balls) to make it a perfect match.

Turbo Mode in the Game ‘Mines’ is On – Fasten the Seat Belts



Reading Time: < 1 minute


Classics are eternal, but classics with new improvements are captivating. One of the first
Turbo games has undergone visual and functional changes and has transformed into one
more game Turbo Mines.

The Head of Product at Turbo Games says:

“Visually, this is the successor to the super hit of our classic Mines. We are a young
progressive team that improves our product regularly, but not just observes what works
well. There is no limit to perfection, especially when you can change quickly and
qualitatively to open an even wider potential of Turbo hit.”

What does it mean for the players?

The rules remain the same as in Mines, but some additional features modify the perception
of the interface and the game pace.

Firstly, it is possible to change the game field size: to 3*3, 5*5, 7*7, and 9*9. Such
modification gives a player a chance to work on their strategy and choose the risk rate. So
to say, every round can be absolutely different from all points of view.

Secondly, those players who enjoy speed can experience it in Turbo Mines too. Such a
function enables a player to choose the same pattern for opening the blocks for many
rounds in a row. If a player sticks to the strategy that they believe in, they will win for sure
because dripping water wears away a stone not with its strength but with its constancy.
But there is no need to wait, do it in Turbo mode with Turbo Mines.
