Spotlight on Online Casino Software Providers: Who are the Industry Leaders?
Reading Time: 4 minutes

 

The casino industry may seem like a sprawling web of operations, all vying agonist over one another to achieve domination; the fact is that there are a few major players who lead the pack. However, most people are unaware of who is behind these operations either because they are uninterested and simply want to play (which is fair enough) or because they don’t know where to look. This post will examine the leading providers and end with a few pointers on the things to look out for when choosing a gambling establishment to play at.

DAMA NV Casinos

The first on our list is one of the largest and holds a significant share of the gaming market worldwide. It’s also one of the newest, having launched in 2019—just as the pandemic began and the industry experienced a huge surge in demand. It’s home to a large number of casinos, with the most famous and well-known being its Let’s Go Casino property, which offers a brilliant range of games along with some very enticing bonuses they offer their customers. DAMA NV Casinos is a pure-play operation and licenses multiple software programs from some of the other operators mentioned here, most notably from Playtech.

SOFTSWISS

SoftSwiss is an international company with a long history of innovation in the iGaming industry. In 2009, they became the first online gambling software company to start working with cryptocurrencies. This forward-thinking approach has helped them to become a recognized leader in the industry. Today, SoftSwiss offers a wide range of iGaming software solutions, including casino platforms, sportsbooks, live casinos, and virtual sports. 

Microgaming

Microgaming is a globally recognized provider of online gambling systems, software, and services. Some of the largest and most recognized names in the online casino industry rely on their platforms and gaming technology, and they are licensed to do so in key jurisdictions, including the United Kingdom, Malta, and Gibraltar. The service also offers one of the most effective platforms for online sports betting. The first version of the company’s online casino software was introduced in 1994.

Playtech

When compared to other casino software and service providers, Playtech stands out as one of the most prominent. Playtech partners with a wide variety of businesses, including established names in online, retail, and mobile gambling and those just getting their feet wet in the industry in newly authorized regions. This firm offers a variety of gambling options, including all the usual suspects and sports betting tech, all of which utilize enterprise-grade AI.

International Game Technology Plc

Here we have yet another UK-based gambling company, perhaps because, contrary to popular belief, the largest online gambling market in the world isn’t based in North America, nor is it in Asia. Instead, it happens to be the UK, where people go crazy for a flutter whenever the urge strikes. International Game Technology has a long-established track record of offering gamers worldwide access to exciting and engaging games, enabling other operators to develop games that appeal to their audience.

Flutter Entertainment

With a presence in over 20 regulated jurisdictions and a global reach, Flutter is the parent company of some of the world’s largest and most recognizable betting and gaming enterprises. It offers B2B services in addition to its p2p offerings, such as online bingo and poker. In addition, it provides services for sportsbooks, exchanges, and daily fantasy sports. In May 2019, the business officially changed its name from Paddy Power Betfair plc to Flutter Entertainment plc.

 

 

 

How To Choose A Reputable Casino

You’re probably itching to get started after reading about all these fantastic companies and making a deposit so you can start playing some thrilling games. However, before you jump into any random online casino, it’s worth looking at some of the things to watch out for

Check Online Reviews

Like any other online service, it’s essential to do your research and read verified customer reviews before committing to an online casino. You can do this by typing into a search engine or, better yet, heading to user-generated content sites like Reddit or Quora to see what others are saying about a particular casino. The reviews will give you a good indication of what to expect and what options you should perhaps avoid.

Ensure It Uses Encrypted Protocols

Seeing as you are going to deposit and withdraw real money and enter in a fair amount of pretty personal data, you must ensure that your casino of choice uses secure protocols to encrypt your data as it passes to and fro.

Check It Has The Games You Enjoy

Checking to see if your favorite games are among the available options is probably the most crucial consideration. If it only has a slack handful of titles to play, you might do well looking elsewhere.

Make Sure It Has Reliable Customer Service

Regardless of how secure a site is or how many games it provides, you will need someone on the other side to lend a hand when something goes disastrously wrong. Therefore, your chosen casino must have a live chat function and a valid email address at a minimum.

As you have read, there are quite a few significant players in the online gambling market. This is a good thing as it provides more choices for the end user and forces them to innovate and create even more exciting games for their customers.

Tech and platform supplier continues to establish itself as the go-to provider in Africa with the opening of a brand new facility in Dakar

Honoré Gaming, the leading technology and platform provider to operators serving the fast-growing African market, has opened the doors to a brand new, state-of-the-art office facility in the capital of Senegal, Dakar.

The occasion was marked with a ceremony attended by Honoré Gaming employees as well as members of the senior management team from National Lottery operator, Lonase, with Lonase CEO Mr Lat Diop giving a speech. This was followed by a performance from famous Senegalese singer, Youssou N’Dour.

Honoré Gaming has established itself as the go-to technology partner for land-based and online sportsbook and casino operators in the African region, with a particular focus on French-speaking markets where its operators dominate in the likes of Congo Brazzaville, Chad and of course, Senegal.

The opening of its Dakar office comes at a time when Honoré Gaming continues to focus on French-speaking African markets while expanding into English-speaking African markets and assessing opportunities to deploy its retail and online technology in emerging jurisdictions such as LatAm.

Africa has been on operator radars for a number of years now, but in recent months several tier-one brands have made their move in the region. This has seen a spike in interest from tier-two operators and local betting brands looking to leverage the opportunity on the table.

Honoré Gaming is here to support these brands, and the power players, as they launch their sportsbooks and casinos in each jurisdiction. Its retail and online technologies and platforms allow operators to truly localise and personalise their proposition for each market.

This is crucial to success with player preferences different across the continent and operators having to meet different regulatory requirements in each country they target. Honoré’s solutions have been designed to allow them to do this with ease.

Christophe Casanova, COO at Honoré Gaming, said: “We are delighted to open an office in Senegal we continue to establish ourselves as the leading technology and platform provider in Africa. Senegal is a key market for us and our partners, so it’s great to have a presence in the country from where we can better support land-based and online operators.

“Africa has been a market of interest for a number of years now, but there is real momentum across the region with more and more brands wanting to get in on the action. Our platform and suite of solutions have been designed specifically for Africa, allowing operators to deploy sportsbook and casino experiences that not only meet but exceed player expectations.

“That we can no offer this from an office based in the heart of Senegal is a major milestone for Honoré Gaming and sets us up for continued success.”

LeoVegas Group granted three licenses to offer gaming software in Sweden

LeoVegas Group has been granted three five-year licenses by the Swedish Gambling Authority—known as “B2B licenses”— to develop and offer gaming software in Sweden. These licenses, effective from 1 July 2023, have been granted to the Group’s game studio Blue Guru Games and two platforms. Licenses are a prerequisite for providing software to licensed operators and an important step to prevent unlicensed gaming companies, consequently strengthening channelisation in the Swedish gaming market.

Since its inception, LeoVegas Group has experienced rapid growth, evolving from an operator into an integral player within the igaming industry’s value chain via game and platform development. Effective from July 1, 2023, under the Swedish Gambling Act, companies involved in the manufacture, provision, installation, or modification of game software utilised in online gaming are required to possess a license.

LeoVegas Group has now been granted three five-year licenses—referred to as “B2B licenses”—by the Swedish Gambling Authority. These licenses have been conferred upon the Group’s game studio Blue Guru Games, as well as the Group’s two platforms (PAM).

Gustaf Hagman, CEO of LeoVegas Group, said “We welcome the introduction of B2B licenses, a decisive step towards mitigating the impact of key gaming software being simultaneously provided to licensed operators and unlicensed operators targeting Swedish players. With the new regulations in force, it is now critical that authorities focus on those suppliers deliberately undermining the Swedish licensing system by facilitating unlicensed gaming“.

The 2019 initiation of Swedish gaming licenses marked a significant reform to regulate and supervise gaming companies operating in Sweden. This reform fortified regulations pertaining to marketing and consumer protection, while also ensuring substantial gambling tax revenues. The success of the B2B licensing system heavily depends on the Swedish Gambling Authority’s capacity to restrict key gaming software intended for licensed Swedish companies from simultaneously being used by unlicensed operators seeking to attract Swedish players.

On 1 May, LeoVegas Group announced its intentions to acquire game developer Push Gaming, which is also licensed by the Swedish Gambling Authority and holds two B2B licenses. The acquisition is expected to be completed in the third quarter of 2023.
