Italian giant supplements its U.S. horse racing data package by the leading Stateside supplier; Triple Crown and other important U.S. events rights guaranteed

XB Net, the leading provider of premium content for North American horse racing, has signed an agreement with Snaitech, the flagship Italian sports betting arm of Playtech, to provide its U.S. horse racing content to the Italian giant.

Top-class audiovisual broadcast around all major daily U.S. meetings will be made available for Snaitech customers via its website www.snai.it and across its retail outlets. Information on horses, jockeys and statistical data will be also available to help drive deeper fan engagement and education around this popular sport.

Among these events, the U.S. Triple Crown stands out. Two of the three races that make up the Triple Crown will be broadcast live: the Preakness Stakes in Baltimore and the Belmont Stakes in Belmont, New York. The agreement also covers other major world events, such as the Breeders’ Cup World Championships, scheduled to take place at Keeneland on 4-5 November, and the Pegasus World Cup, which will be staged in January 2023.

Simon Fraser, Senior Vice President of International at XB Net, said: “SNAI is a giant brand whose expertise and trademark customer care is best in class. Therefore, it’s a perfect moment to partner with their optimised Italian sportsbook, which has quickly embraced the merits and utility of North American racing. While domestic racing is back in full swing in Italy, those players who were drawn to North American racing during the pandemic have largely been retained which represents another key validation of our product.”

Agostino Romano, Chief Retail Operations Officer at Snaitech, added: “The daily schedule of races, guaranteed by our partnership with XB Net – owner of the rights to 60 circuits representing three quarters of the U.S. races – integrates perfectly with the domestic racing calendar in Italy. Thanks to the time difference and a 24-hour, 7-day-a-week schedule, the betting schedule is much broader and satisfies a greater number of fans of this engaging sport. We are looking forward to seeing the results in the upcoming events, such as the Triple Crown and the Breeders’ Cup.”

XB Net, the preferred point of contact for live North American racing contents, manages international rights, data, odds, live broadcasting and video streaming on behalf of its growing portfolio of partners. U.S. races, some 25.000 per year, engage an increasing number of bettors and allow international operators to fill gaps in the racing calendar in recent times.

Working with many of the world’s leading fixed-odds, spread-betting and commingled wagering companies, XB Net enjoys a growing geographic footprint in mature and emerging markets across Europe, the UK & Ireland, Asia, North and Central America and Australia.

Torque Squad out in force for MotoGP weekend
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

The Torque Squad, part of the Motorverse Corporation and subsidiary of Animoca Brands, went to MotoGP for the first time as it revved up for the MotoGP™ Monster Energy British Grand Prix.

Brad Binder, MotoGP rider and Torque Squad Ambassador, took to the stage at Silverstone. A tough Qualifying saw the 26-year-old sitting 0.176 seconds off Q2, but the Torqies cheered Binder from P14 on the grid to a P11 finish.

The South African currently sits seventh in the standings, with one podium under his belt, as the MotoGP riders prepare to take on tracks in Austria and Italy before heading to Spain for the MotoGP™ Gran Premio de Aragón, where Animoca Brands will star as title sponsor.

This marks the latest step for Torque Squad and Animoca Brands as they build on a growing partnership with MotoGP™, with Animoca Brands also serving the role of title sponsor at the Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix in October.

The Torqies at Silverstone secured their VIP experience at the MotoGP™ Monster Energy British Grand Prix via both REVV Motorsport Discord and Torque Squad Discord.

As well as meeting Brad Binder, the lucky winners also came face-to-face with three-time MotoGP World Champion Jorge Lorenzo as part of a special experience that featured meet & greets, paddock tours, pit lane walks, bike simulators and more.

The event also followed news that Torque Squad had partnered with Lorenzo as part of the Spaniard’s involvement with X-Fuera.

Matt Solomon, Motorverse Co-Founder and CEO, said: “It was great to see so many Torqies at Silverstone for MotoGP. The event marked our first collaboration with the series and it was a huge success.

“We were delighted that our Torqies got to experience the full VIP package at Silverstone and we look forward to our next event!”

Earlier this year Motorverse Corporation announced the launch of Torque Squad – a collection of 8,888 racing avatars NFTs called “Torqies”. Torqie NFTs are generated with individually styled details and intricate hand-drawn artwork to delight motorsport enthusiasts.

These Torqies will act as the entry point to the Motorverse ecosystem. Partnered with the REVV Motorsport ecosystem, the Motorverse will support various REVV ecosystem NFTs in some of the upcoming Motorverse experiences.

These experiences include both the real and virtual worlds of motorsport, with Torque Squad NFTs offering true utility across multiple areas. Next up for the Torqies will be the Phillip Island Circuit in Australia, where Binder and the rest of the MotoGP grid will battle it out as the season nears its end.

Alongside Binder, Torque Squad project has partnered with numerous other top racers from across the world of motorsport, including Juan Pablo Montoya and his son Sebastian, Joey Logano and Rene Rast.

Regulatory expert warns operators that Gambling Commission is increasing number of compliance inspections
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

Richard Bradley of Poppleston Allen, says firm are noticing an increase in enquiries relating to potential compliance failings 

Richard Bradley, Partner and gambling industry compliance expert at Poppleston Allen said: “Our advice to operators, over and above the obvious reminder to regularly review compliance processes meticulously, with a particular focus on monitoring customer accounts and player behaviour, is to be proactive and cooperative when engaging with the Gambling Commission. Where operators identify their own non-compliance concerns, they should act swiftly to assess all relevant details and implement a robust action plan in a timely manner.  If the failings must be notified to the Gambling Commission, this should be completed at the earliest possible stage. Where the Commission raises concerns, operators should engage with the Commission and be able to identify the measures to be implemented to resolve any suspected breaches, presenting effective operational solutions”.

“We’re noticing an increase in enquiries relating to potential compliance failings and we also see that the Gambling Commission is increasing the number of compliance inspections. It’s clear that operational scrutiny is intensifying and in the event of any failures, waiting to be caught out and taking a reactive rather than proactive approach could result in more severe penalties.   Fines and regulatory settlements are also increasing,  particularly for repeat offenders, and there is always the risk of licence revocation, albeit that is currently reserved for the most serious cases.
