We are grateful to our partners and the state for the opportunity to be involved in the demonstration of Ukrainian technical expertise to the whole world,” commented Maksym Liashko, co-CEO of Parimatch Tech.

Online casino apps have rapidly sprung all over the world because of the ease of playing, comfort, and reliability they offer. Due to this recent rise in competition, it is often difficult to choose an online casino option for yourself because it gets confusing for even the most highly experienced players out there. 

Players often murmur questions amongst themselves, while choosing an online casino, about: 

  • Safety of the whole process of transactions and playing 
  • Enjoyability of games and their variety 
  • An exceptional customer service 
  • An easy-to-use interface of the website 

To address all of your queries, this reading will take inspiration from some stellar online casinos, such as Princess Casino Romania, to identify a typically efficient online casino’s benefits to players from all over the world. 

The Importance of Safety 

The importance of safety is critical for online practices, especially with online casinos because huge amounts of money is involved. The best online casinos, like Princess Casino Romania, undertake their duty of providing their valued customers with complete security in transactions and playing to the utmost extent. 

They safeguard their websites with heavy-duty firewalls and other protective features, such as complete and complex encryptions, to secure the users from any malpractice. Moreover, to ensure the best playing experience for everyone, the best online casinos have live moderators on their servers who are continuously monitoring the playing field. 

Safety of payments, in the form of ease of payments, is also an important duty undertaken by the best online casinos. Increasing the methods of payment, and making the process of payments easier, will allow the customer to be the most comfortable while paying. 

For instance, numerous players do not have PayPal accounts, hence, it is mandatory for the online casino to offer other methods; this will provide ease to the customer. Immensely successful online casinos offer you Visa and MasterCard payment options as well. Beneficial for you, the best casinos are known for their quick release of funds to the winner, taking a matter of minutes or hours, instead of several days or even weeks. 


Proper Games in Many Varieties

Players require well-made games that have superior quality. They also require abundant options when it comes to games because it is a common fact that players tend to get bored while playing the same game repeatedly; this greatly hampers the online casino experience which is supposed to be exciting. 

On average, top online casinos offer up to 6 games on their websites and applications. These include all gambling game types, including blackjack and slots. Since slots is the most commonly played game all over the world, several online casinos offer multiple options for slot games. 

High-quality audio and video features in an online casino game increase its playability factor because players are increasingly receptive to high-caliber graphics as opposed to dated pixels of the past. Nowadays, online casinos offer graphics that are comparable to console games. Live casino offerings, offered by the finest, connect the player and dealers, live. 


No Compromise on Customer Service 

When there is money involved on the internet, customer service is critical because mishaps and complexities have to be resolved almost instantly. The greatest online casinos understand this breakthrough factor, hence, they will offer constant, 24/7 customer support. 


A Website Speaks Volumes 

Websites pose as the only hallmark to potential customers, so they are designed with extra care. Apart from aesthetics and vibrant colors, the best websites will offer easy maneuverability because customers get easily annoyed after seeing hefty websites with loads of information. A seamless and friendly experience allows the user to easily navigate through the website, substantially reducing the risk of any alienations.

Pinnacle look to expand with focus on central and eastern European partners at iGB Live!



Pinnacle look to expand with focus on central and eastern European partners at iGB Live!
Reading Time: 3 minutes


Pinnacle Solution will be attending July’s edition of iGB Live! in confident mood boasting an expanded sales team, an MGA gaming licence which was gained earlier this year and a clear focus on expanding into new territories. Describing April’s return of ICE London as representing a ‘tipping point’, Business Development Director, Rohini Sardana, confirmed: “It’s great to be back in full swing with regards to industry events and iGB Live! is always one that’s not-to-miss. It not only brings together European suppliers, operators, and affiliates, but it also succeeds in attracting delegates from outside the region – it’s set to be a great mix of companies looking to develop and drive the industry forward.”

Reflecting on the last 2-years the Pinnacle Solution Director believes the period spent under lockdown whilst not conducive to relationship building also had a positive impact on the business. “Not being able to attend live-events represented a major loss at the time” Rohini acknowledged. “But it also meant that we were able to reassess our service and analyse how we can best help our operator partners. The lockdowns allowed us to refine our product offering, in order to add the most value possible. Coming back to events such as iGB Live! with a more targeted offer makes business development easier, particularly in the booming esports vertical where we continue to be a game-changing partner with what is a truly market-leading product.

“Our sportsbook offering is proven to drive revenue, including on esports, and our ability to generate above-market hold is clear, but it’s always useful at these events to explain in more detail how we can work to each partner’s specific needs, and that’s what we’ll be looking to push at the RAI. Having seen a lot of our early success out in Asia, we now have the foundation and enlarged team to grow into new territories. We’ll particularly be looking at speaking with central and eastern European partners at iGB Live!”

With market saturation and regulatory headwinds affecting the sector, building trust and acquiring a sustainable flow of players are seen as the key challenge for sportsbooks. “The way digital natives operate online is so different to how online sportsbooks planned for decades ago. Customer behaviours are also changing, with different channels, different streaming requirements, and different content needs, and these have to be addressed to bring them onboard.”

“Attracting this demographic is also a massive opportunity that could lay the foundations for a sustainable sportsbook for years to come. Acquiring the esports bettor remains a challenge to many brands, and it’s our role as a specialist esports supplier to bring the knowledge and tools to operators which will allow them to engage authentically and then retain the esports fan, who we understand extremely well.”

The combination of right product mix, right people and right energy are, according to Rohini Sardana, the foundations of a successful show. “With a less frantic atmosphere than ICE, it allows for constructive, in-depth and value-building product conversation. Gaming shows don’t always have to be flashy to be successful; as long as you can get the right people in the right rooms sharing information and innovation, it’s going to be a successful event and that’s how I see iGB Live! going. I want to feel invigorated by a passionate trade show; where we’ve had the opportunities to solve problems and drive success for potential operator partners, as well as catch up with existing clients. The networking events in Amsterdam are always first-class and it’s no surprise that iGB Live! is regarded as being right up there as a major industry event.”

iGB Live! provides a forum of opportunity for industry professionals to connect and converse with key suppliers, convert expert-led insights into actionable business growth and converge with the 4,000+ visitors and 250 exhibitors expected at what is one of the world’s fastest growing gaming expos.
