Published

Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

The visitors of the SBC’s CasinoBeats Summit (23-25 May) can expect a comprehensive examination of the technical aspects of online casino gaming, through expert-led panels covering the latest technologies, game design and mathematics shaping the industry’s future.

Held at Malta’s InterContinental Hotel, the central stage (Conference Room 1) of the event will feature two tracks, each for a day: ‘Casino Slots Focus’ track on Wednesday, 24 May and ‘Casino Product Focus’ track on Thursday, 25 May, providing valuable insights based on years of experience and research.

The star-studded lineup of speakers will include industry creatives and tech-savvy profiles such as CTOs, product specialists, game developers, and casino experts, who will help the audience get a better grasp of the cutting-edge ideas and innovations shaping the future of casino games. Topics of discussion will include creating immersive player experiences, player psychology and game RTP complexities, incentivising players responsibly, new game releases and components, the future role of aggregators, and crash games, among others.

Top industry CTOs will take the stage during the ‘CTO Panel: Integrating Emerging Technologies’ panel session to discuss their plans for incorporating cutting-edge technologies at a time when Meta is working towards bringing VR technology to the mainstream. The operator perspective will be presented by Jacinto Barbosa (CTO, Solverde) and Julian Jares (CTO, Bingosoft), with Clinton Cutajar (CTO, Media Troopers), representing the affiliate view. The panel will be moderated by David Alamango (CTO, Videoslots).

The ‘Game Mechanics – Pushing Innovation vs Going Back to Basics’ panel will offer an inside look into the technicalities of casino games. Top casino game specialists will be posed with the million-dollar question: While other industries (like video gaming) are incorporating new and innovative approaches, traditional fruit slot games remain the most popular in the online casino worlds. Can we strive for more innovation in game mechanics and move away from the basics? Asko Heiskanen (Head of Game Studio, Veikkaus), Elena Shaterova (CCO, 7777 Gaming) and Daniel Eskola (Head of Research & Development, Relax Gaming) will offer their perspectives.

Ending the first day of the conference, the panel Know Your Player – What to Do With All That Data?’ explores how accessible data is analysed for personalised experiences and differentiation in product offerings via the creation of behavioural profiles. Operator representatives Alexandru Ababei (ROW & Canada Campaign Manager), James Zerafa (COO, Winners.bet), and Jennifer Duarte Ceballos (Head of CRM & Casino, Cashmio) will share their insights.

The ‘Crypto vs. FIAT Casino – Is the Gap Narrowing?’ panel will compare traditional FIAT casinos to crypto casinos, as the latter are growing substantially, in terms of reward systems, promotions, game mechanics and compliance. Panellists Lars Rosenberg (CEO, oshi.io), Christoffer Andersson (COO, 500 .casino), Matej Novota (Head of Data and Complaints, CasinoGuru) and Christopher Dalli (CEO, L&L Europe) will discuss which type of casino offers the best player experience. ProdMark 365 Founder Mark Grech will moderate the panel.

Rasmus Sojmark, CEO & Founder of SBC, said: “CasinoBeats stands out as one-of-a-kind event that facilitates targeted discussions on the future of the casino industry and delving into the technical details and innovative thinking behind developing new casino titles in a rapidly growing and competitive landscape. I am impressed with the topics and the speakers on this agenda and cannot wait to welcome some of the savviest tech people in the industry on stage.”

The Conference Room 1 agenda concludes with the ‘Developer Pitch Competition,’ where ten rising studios will battle it out for the newly-introduced ‘Game Studio Spotlight’ award. Each studio pitches their slot game to expert judges after showcasing it to the audience in the game lounge the previous day. The winner, determined by a 50/50 combination of public votes and judge scores, will be announced at the Thursday evening Game Developer Awards (requires a separate ticket).
