Boomerang Digital confirm key business win at ICE and set out Tier 1 credentials
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Boomerang Digital’s dynamic start to the year continued at ICE where it announced a new partnership with London-based video virtuals and instant win games specialist Highlight Games Limited.

Following its December 2023 launch the streamlined entertainment brand created by Andrew Ludlow in partnership with the Finnish games developer Air Dice has purchased IHL Tech, announced a substantial long-term development and supply agreement with UK independent operator the Rudd Group and secured the partnership with Highlight Games.

Under the terms of the agreement Boomerang will use its market-leading technology stack and HG’s innovative game concept and extensive video archive portfolio to create a new ‘Lotto Goals’ numbers game and distribute it to a leading tier one UK retail operator in time for the UEFA Euro 2024 Championships this summer.  Distribution will thereafter extend to Highlight and Boomerang’s respective UK and international customers in the gaming, betting and lottery sectors.

Lotto Goals requires the player to pick six football shirt numbers from a pool of 22 options.  A series of goals from favourite players and teams featured in Highlight’s video archive then play out to reveal if the player’s chosen shirt numbers come in as winners.

Andrew Ludlow, co-founder and CEO Boomerang Digital, said: “We are thrilled to be working with the team at Highlight Games to facilitate the development and distribution of its exclusive content.  The exceptionally innovative concept which marries numbers games and real football footage is something our customers have been crying out for. Together, Highlight and Boomerang will grow their respective UK and international customer bases across the world in this mutually beneficial agreement.”

Steven Holmes, CEO, Highlight Games added: “I’m delighted to be working with Boomerang Digital to deliver our award-winning content to the entire retail network of a tier one UK retail operator ahead of the UEFA Euro championships this summer.  This partnership will enable our business to expand its distribution of content across the UK and internationally – it’s an exciting step in our growth as a video virtual sports and instant-win game supplier creating the cross over between lottery/numbers games and archive video footage.”

Reflecting on the brand’s participation in what was the last edition of ICE to be held in London prior to its January 2025 relocation to Barcelona Andrew Ludlow said: “To be at ICE as a part of the Air Dice stand has brought both businesses even closer together. The fusion of offline and online retail works exceptionally well, and ICE was the perfect platform to unite those two constituent parts.

“With a proven skill-set spanning compliance, membership, mobile, bulk SMS provision, handheld tablets, as well as bingo and numbers games Boomerang is  genuine one-stop shop delivering compelling customer engagement solutions for the international land-based gaming and entertainment sectors.”

“There is a strong international flavour to our product portfolio and  I believe that through our participation at ICE we have made a compelling case to be considered amongst Europe’s leading retail gaming and gambling entertainment solutions providers.”

What Types of Resources Help You Find New Online Casinos?

Published

on

Reading Time: 3 minutes

 

As online betting and gambling are increasingly getting popular, more and more gambling portals and online casinos are sprouting up every day on the internet. With so many mobile applications and websites offering lucrative options, it can be quite overwhelming and confusing to find new online casinos which are both legitimate and safe. So, how do you make a decision?

This list of resources will help you clear out that confusion and help you analyse your choices more carefully and choose the right new online gambling site for yourself.

Read Reviews on Reputable Review Sites

Online review websites are one of the most reliable sources to ascertain how good a new online gambling site is. With the drastic increase in the number of online gambling portals and casinos, these review sites have become a frequent visit for many gambling enthusiasts. Such websites usually provide comprehensive reviews of different online casinos along with important information about their games, bonuses, payment methods, and customer support.

One pro tip is to look for reviews from industry experts and popular players to ensure you get a credible report and make a more informed decision accordingly.

Check for Proper Licensing

One of the most critical things before signing up for a new online gambling site is to check its legitimacy and licensing. On the portal, make sure to look for a valid license registered under a proper jurisdiction.

This will ensure that the company is a legally registered operation and that your personal and financial data is safe and secure.

Refer to News Websites and Blogs

Another credible way to find good new online casinos is to look through news websites and blogs that specifically talk about the gambling industry. These sites often publish dedicated articles about the latest trends and developments in the industry, including new site launches and promotions.

Often including reviews from experts, articles and blogs on these platforms is a good way to judge a new online gambling site and make your decision. That’s why it is advisable to keep an eye on such portals and stay updated and informed.

Join Online Forums and Communities

I believe that no one can give a better review of an online gambling website other than someone who has been on the portal and played the game themselves. While there are multiple such forums dedicated to the online gambling industry, some online casinos have their own forums dedicated to their players.

Being on these forums and communities is a good way to get in touch with industry experts and experienced players and personally get their reviews and recommendations on online casinos. You can also learn about new casinos, discuss different aspects of online gambling, and connect with other players who share your interests.

Check Social Media Platforms

It’s 2024 and no community is bigger than social media! Be it Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, Snapchat or even Reddit, almost every individual and business is present over there including online gambling companies. With the easiest access to a very large number of people, online casinos have to maintain their presence and stay active on these platforms.

That’s why many online casinos have social media accounts across many of these platforms where they regularly post updates about their latest games, promotions, and other news. Thus, social media is one of the best ways to search for new online casinos. In fact, by following these casinos on social media, you can stay updated about their offerings and be among the first to know about any new developments.

Consider Bonuses and Promotions

A lot of new online casinos offer generous bonuses and promotional schemes like welcome bonuses, free spins, no or low deposits, etc., to attract new players.  If you ask me, I prefer playing on a portal that asks for the lowest deposits.

For this, I look for a list of low-deposit online casinos and research their bonuses and promotions to make sure they are lofty and worth my time. Do the same while picking out your online gambling website and chances are that you’ll start with a great deal.

Choosing a new gambling site from a pool of hundreds and thousands of casinos can be daunting, especially for beginners. However, using the right resources like review portals, online communities, blogs, etc., can help you indulge in a proper research process. On the other hand, using smart techniques like checking for licenses and promotional offers offered by the company can make the decision-making even smoother.

But at the end of the day, I believe that finding the right new gambling website really depends on how well-informed you are about the industry. Always make sure to stay updated and informed about whatever is happening in the industry and you’ll automatically find it easier to pick your new gambling website.
