Latest Online Betting Trends: Insights from SOFTSWISS
Reading Time: 4 minutes

 

In its first report, the SOFTSWISS Sportsbook has compiled unique insights based on a detailed study of user behaviour in the first half of 2021. The information in the report reflects aggregated anonymous results across all brands powered by the Sportsbook Platform.

The SOFTSWISS Sportsbook, launched in December 2020, has gathered quite a few useful and interesting insights, which it is now ready to share. To find more detailed stats visit a special section on the SOFTSWISS website.

 

TOP DEVICES BY BET SUM AND BET COUNT

Although the use of mobile phones in online gambling has been increasing in recent years, by a huge margin among all devices used for fixed-odds betting, desktops dominate. Their share is three times that of mobile devices. However, the statistics change dramatically when it comes to the number of bets placed. In this case, users favour mobile devices, which lead with 77.16% compared to desktops (22.64%). It is typical for desktop users to place larger bets, but less often. In turn, betting from mobile devices is more frequent, but smaller.

Alexander Kamenetskyi, Product Owner at SOFTSWISS Sportsbook, comments: “Our clients’ big players trust desktops more. One reason is the convenience of getting information, as well as the greater trust in this format of interaction when large sums are involved. On the other hand, the greater bet count made via mobile devices is due to the accelerating pace of life. The mobile phone allows us to stay up to date regardless of time or place. This is reflected in the statistics. We see this trend and understand that mobile devices are the future. So one of our main objectives for the years to come is to make sure that the share of bets placed across mobile exceeds 80% and that we aim for 100% overall.”

 

TOP 3 CURRENCIES BY GGR SHARE

One of the main KPIs in the gambling business is GGR. This indicator reflects the amount remaining in the casino as a result of visitor play, before operational costs are deducted. It is calculated as total bets less total wins.

The US Dollar is the principal currency used by punters and is responsible for 61.15% of all sports betting GGR. The Euro comes in second place with approximately half that share (30.37%).

You’ll be surprised to learn that Bitcoin is not the top crypto by GGR share. Which cryptocurrency came in third place at 8%? See in the Sportsbook Insights Report.

 

 

TOP SPORTS BY GGR SHARE

The three most popular sports based on GGR share:

 

Alexander Kamenetskyi, Product Owner at SOFTSWISS Sportsbook, notes: “This prize trio is not at all surprising for those with a long-standing interest in betting. Football, as the most popular sport, takes the top place.It is suitable for all types of betting, including live betting in the form of a pre-match.

If football is the most popular kind of sport, tennis is one of the most elite ones with an off-season period of less than a month. Its popularity is also influenced by the fact that it is an individual sport and not a collective one. Dozens of tournaments can take place in a week with very detailed statistics, allowing the player to always have enough information to analyse events. Additionally, quick points are available in tennis, where a player bets on the winner of a game, for example, and can win within a minute.

Second place is always claimed by basketball along with tennis. There, too, you can bet on a fast game and get a win here and now. What else might be of interest to professional players is the possibility to catch the bookie at a mistake more easily. However, basketball is very much tied to the market where it is popular, such as in Lithuania.“

 

GENDER BY BET SUM AND BET COUNT

This data takes into account the distribution of the bet sum and bet count in the following groups: women, men and gender-neutral people who, for whatever reason, chose not to indicate their gender.

In this case, the statistics are fairly expected. Men are still betting more frequently than women or gender-neutral players: 73.06%, 12.60% and 14.34% of the total respectively.

At the same time, over 70% of all money spent on bets is accounted for by players who did not indicate their gender or chose to remain gender-neutral. Of the remaining two groups, women accounted for only 3.45% of the total betting and 24.05% for men.

Alexander Kamenetskyi, Product Owner at SOFTSWISS Sportsbook, explains: “There is probably no particular reason why players do not specify their gender. Perhaps it is because the player who wants to play is keen to start the playing session as soon as possible. But when they get their winnings, they are willing to take some time and fill in the necessary details. And even then, the gender column is not mandatory, so it is simply skipped.”

BINGOTON: PADDY POWER PRESENTS A DRAMA…WITH BALLS

Published

Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

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

Published

on

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.
