UK B2B betting software supplier 20SHOTS have signed an agreement with operator BoyleSports to offer their flagship free-to-play football jackpot game, Fantasy5, to customers under a while label agreement.

The deal marks 20SHOTS first agreement with a tier one operator and will see Fantasy5 directly marketed under BoyleSports’ branding to customers, as the bookmaker looks to use the technology to boost acquisition, retention and engagement during the Premier League season.

Fantasy5 will be marketed directly by BoyleSports to their customers and is based on an integration which is managed by a single sign on mobile, desktop and app through players’ existing accounts.

The partnership comes as Fantasy5’s growth continues, surpassing 100,000 active users to become the fastest growing free-to-play football jackpot game in the industry.

Fantasy5’s growth this season has also been driven by 74% week on week retention rates, with active users logging in 3 times a week and spending in excess of 3 minutes on site per session when playing.

BoyleSports’ customers will enter a separate Fantasy5 game, running alongside the global Fantasy5 game, with entrants in both able to land a ÂŁ10,000 jackpot from a free entry should they successfully pick players to surpass their fantasy football points target in a gameweek.

Commenting on the partnership and integration, Mark Kemp, CEO BoyleSports said: “We’re excited to launch Fantasy5 under our branding in order to boost our free-to-play offering for new and existing customers. Free-to-play is a key part of our customer acquisition and retention strategy and by bolstering our product offering with Fantasy5, we’re giving customers even more reason to log in each gameweek to spend time on site.

“As the first UK & Irish operator to offer Fantasy5, we’re hopeful that a BoyleSports customer wins the ÂŁ10,000 jackpot from a free entry sooner rather than later.”

20SHOTS co-founder Jacob Kalms said: “Our landmark agreement with BoyleSports is complete meaning their sportsbook customers can soon join the global pool of players, now in excess of 100,000, competing for our jackpots, free of charge, every game week and directly from their existing BoyleSports accounts.

“Our retention statistics prove that free-to-play product represents the next player recruitment and retention battleground for the industry and by being able to offer the jackpot directly to their customers, BoyleSports’ offering to a valuable football betting audience is increased.”

“This landmark partnership and launch represents the next stage of our strategic growth which will see Fantasy5 offered to customers across the world via partnerships with operators and we are thrilled to see the competition open directly via a leading Uk & Irish sportsbook brand for the first time.”

Paul Kavanagh, CEO at MiFinity, said: “We have considerable experience in N1 Interactive’s key European markets, providing customers with localised payment methods via our eWallet. With over 40 integrated payment methods, we can significantly reduce the risk of a player abandoning the cashier across all N1 Interactive’s live brands.”

Paul Kavanagh said: “Removing unnecessary steps in the payment journey, such as navigating to a 3rd party payment page, positively impacts conversion rates. Similarly, providing players with localised payment methods, multiple currencies, and multilingual options reduces the risk of cart abandonment. Our iFrame does all this within the brand’s cashier, providing a seamless customer experience.”

The ACMA has requested that Australian internet service providers (ISPs) block more illegal offshore gambling and affiliate marketing websites.

The sites include Casino Moons, Winnerama, Extra Vegas, Win Paradise, LegitGamblingSites and Gamblers Lab.

The ACMA investigated and found these services to be operating in breach of the Interactive Gambling Act 2001.

Website blocking is one of a range of enforcement options to protect Australians against illegal online gambling. Since the ACMA made its first blocking request in November 2019, 568 illegal gambling and affiliate websites have been blocked.

Over 170 illegal services have also pulled out of the Australian market since the ACMA started enforcing new illegal offshore gambling rules in 2017.

Entain to Pay ÂŁ17M Penalty for Online and Retail Failures

Entain, the global sports betting, gaming and interactive entertainment Group, has confirmed that it has agreed a regulatory settlement with the UK Gambling Commission (UKGC) in respect of alleged historical licensing breaches. The regulatory settlement amounts to £14m in respect of Entain’s digital business and £3m in respect of its retail business.

Entain has entered into the regulatory settlement with the UKGC in order to bring the matter to a close and avoid further costly and protracted legal proceedings. Entain accepts that certain legacy systems and processes supporting the operations of its British business during 2019 and 2020 were not in line with the evolving regulatory expectations of the UKGC in respect to aspects of social responsibility and anti-money laundering (AML) safeguards. However, the Group also notes the UKGC’s statement that it found no evidence whatsoever of criminal spend within Entain’s operations.

The issues raised by the Commission relate to the period between December 2019 and October 2020, which predates the many changes in the area of safer gambling and AML that Entain has introduced. For instance, in 2021 Entain launched its Advanced Responsibility and Care (ARC) programme which, using revolutionary AI technology, operates in real-time and is individually tailored for each customer. The initial trials of ARC in the UK have shown a risk assessment accuracy of over 80%, a 120% uplift in the use of safer gambling tools by those most at risk and a 30% overall reduction in customers increasing their risk levels.

Furthermore, in May of this year, Entain was awarded the Advanced Safer Gambling Standard by GamCare, having evidenced the highest standards of player protection and social responsibility for its online and land-based gambling businesses in Great Britain.

As part of the settlement, Entain has also agreed to appoint a Board sponsor to oversee the implementation of any further improvements identified by the original 2020 compliance assessments and to undertake an independent audit of the relevant policies and procedures at a future date.
