The Setka Cup series of international 24/7 sports tournaments has extended its partnership agreement with the Czech Republic’s Prague Table Tennis Association. Today the Setka Cup is an integral part of BETER Sports — the BETER company’s fast-paced and next-gen product vertical. BETER has been powering the tournaments of the Setka Cup since 2018.
The collaboration with the Prague Table Tennis Association began last year and has produced some fantastic results, which have persuaded both parties to lock in for the long-term, in order to continue driving the development of table tennis tournaments, both on- and offline. The key directions of this partnership involve promoting integrity, improving the level of skill among players, and popularising the sport in the Czech Republic throughout the 2022-2023 season.
The popularity of the Setka Cup’s daily tournaments has been on an impressive upward trajectory in the EU and especially in the Czech Republic, since the opening in May 2021 of the Setka Cup Arena in Prague, where fans can enjoy four table tennis tournaments every day, involving 100 active local players.
Also worthy of note is the recent signing of a partnership agreement between BETER’s Setka Cup and the Moldova Table Tennis Federation to promote integrity in the sport. The areas of activity covered by this partnership will include collecting, analysing, and exchanging information about any unusual or suspicious matches detected by either organisation during sporting competitions.
These are the most successful new games in Germany in 2022
Be it exciting sports games, games for the entire family, epic journeys into fantastical worlds, or action-packed adventure – 2022 offered a wide range of video game titles to choose from. This can be seen in the German annual charts for the bestselling PC and console games that were released in 2022. The hit sports game ‘EA SPORTS FIFA 23’ (Electronic Arts) captured first place in the list of bestselling new game releases in 2022. Another major success: ‘Pokémon Legends: Arceus’ (Nintendo) from the popular Pokémon series for the Nintendo Switch. This action role-playing game took second place in the list of bestselling games for the year just ended. Third place in the German charts for 2022 was secured by the award-winning open-world game ‘ELDEN RING’ (Bandai Namco Entertainment), which was the result of a collaboration between game developer Hidetaka Miyazaki and author George R. R. Martin. Just two months after its release at the end of October 2022, first-person shooter game ‘Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II’ (Activision) made it into fourth place. It was followed in fifth place by the action-adventure game ‘LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga’ (Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment), whose missions are based on the most important events from the nine ‘Star Wars’ films.

EveryMatrix wins Hungarian lottery tender for online sportsbook platform and services
The Hungarian national lottery company, Szerencsejáték Privately Held Company Limited, becomes EveryMatrix’s sixth global lottery client and coincides with the launch of the country’s online sports betting regulation.
B2B iGaming technology provider EveryMatrix has been awarded the public tender to provide the Hungarian state-owned gaming and lottery operator Szerencsejáték Privately Held Company Limited with an end-to-end suite of advanced digital sports betting software solutions and services for its online brand TippmixPro.
Designed to create the ultimate online sports betting experience in the newly regulated market, the multi-year agreement was awarded to EveryMatrix after a 15-month competitive procurement process with more than 25 bidders.
EveryMatrix technology will transform the Hungarian national lottery company and its TippmixPro brand’s digital sports betting offering by integrating its award-winning OddsMatrix sportsbook platform and data feeds ensuring maximum productivity, stability, and scalability.
In addition, EveryMatrix will provide a full range of state-of-the-art turnkey software solutions and services across player account management; virtual sports; bonusing, acquisition, retention, and reactivation; payments and affiliate management.
The agreement comes at the ideal time for Szerencsejáték Privately Held Company Limited following the Hungarian government’s decision to regulate online sports betting which went live on January 1st, 2023.
EveryMatrix has won several World Lottery Association (WLA) and European Lotteries (EL) agreements including Norsk Tipping (Norway), OPAP (Greece), National Lottery (Malta) and Veikkaus (Finland).
Launched in 1991 Szerencsejáték Privately Held Company Limited is a leading operator in the Hungarian online sports betting market and one of the largest businesses in the country. It is a member of the WLA and offers multiple products including lottery games, lottery tickets and sports betting with more than 7,700 nationwide sales points.
The Hungarian national lottery company makes a significant annual contribution to the country’s stable economic growth, financing community, cultural, social, health and sporting initiatives and returns approximately two-thirds of its net gaming revenue – in the form of taxes, fees, contributions, dividends – to the state budget to finance public projects.
Stian Hornsletten, Chief Commercial Officer at EveryMatrix, said: “Since 2016 we have made significant inroads in the lottery sector and now work with some of the biggest organisations in the world, powering and servicing their digital offerings to millions of their customers.
“Winning SZRT ahead of many of our competitors yet again underlines the quality of our technology solutions, services, and expertise across multiple elements, from sportsbook and player account management to bonusing, payments and affiliate management.
“Operations are weighted highly within large-scale agreements such as this and I’m particularly pleased that our operational quality and experience shone through. We are delighted to be working in partnership with SZRT and look forward to supporting them in their digital journey this year and beyond.”
Zoltán Horváth, Sports Betting Director at Szerencsejáték Privately Held Company Limited, said: “We are very pleased to have agreed terms with EveryMatrix following a thorough and highly competitive tender process and we’re confident we have selected an ideal partner.
“We have ambitious plans to extend and enhance our sports betting offering at a time of market regulation to create the ultimate entertainment experience for Hungarian players, and we firmly believe we will achieve this through this partnership.”
