“Our platform, technologies and services have been designed to allow operators to take total control of their sportsbook and run it how they want to. Of course, they can also leverage our years of experience and market understanding to get the most out of our solutions.

“NebirBet is undoubtedly a market leader in Ethiopia but with our platform and support, it will be able to further establish itself as the number one destination for sports betting in the country.”

Biniyam Zeray, Deputy General Manager at NebirBet, added: “Honoré Gaming’s platform and suite of retail and online solutions are second to none, so this was an easy partnership for us to enter into.

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.
