Innovative analytics tool brings personal real-time data to slot play

 

Malta, 04th April – Leading online casino operator Videoslots has enhanced its offering with the launch of ‘My RTP’, a pioneering analytics tool designed to bring greater engagement and transparency to the online casino experience.

The ground-breaking new feature gives players unprecedented access to their personal return to player (RTP) on individual games, alongside information on record wins, hit rates, and average number of spins per session, allowing players to make more informed choices on which games to play.

Players can track the games that give them the highest and lowest return to player, as well as save their game sessions to compare them to the return to player of others enjoying the same slot, all on a single clear and concise webpage.

With its sharp design and precise presentation, My RTP provides online casino players with the kind of comprehensive data coverage that is now commonplace in sports betting.

Alexander Stevendahl, CEO at Videoslots, said: “As one of the world’s leading online casinos, it has always been our goal to us to deliver total transparency to online casino players in real time.

My RTP delivers key information in a coherent and engaging manner, and will allow our players to enjoy an even more sociable and healthy online casino experience.

We pay a lot of attention to player feedback at Videoslots, and My RTP fills a genuine gap in the market for a complete statistics package for online slot players.

My RTP is the latest addition to Videoslots industry-leading selection of player-first features, including the innovative Battle of Slots.

Evolution Gaming: Interim report January-June 2019
Reading Time: 3 minutes

 

Evolution released today its Interim Report for January-June 2019.

 

Second quarter of 2019 (Q2 2018)

  • Operating revenues increased by 45% to EUR 85.7 million (59.3)
  • EBITDA increased by 63% to EUR 42.7 million (26.2), corresponding to a margin of 49.8% (44.2)
  • Profit for the period amounted to EUR 34.5 million (20.1)
  • Earnings per share amounted to EUR 0.19 (0.11)

January-June 2019 (1H 2018)

  • Operating revenues increased by 49% to EUR 165.0 million (110.8)
  • EBITDA increased by 63% to EUR 78.6 million (48.1), corresponding to a margin of 47.7% (43.4)
  • Profit for the period amounted to EUR 63.1 million (36.7)
  • Earnings per share amounted to EUR 0.35 (0.20)

Comments from CEO Martin Carlesund:

“Evolution’s strong development continues, and we can report continued high growth and further improved margin in the second quarter. 2019 is a year of product and innovation, and during the period, we have launched all this year’s new games. The response has been instant, and we are overwhelmed by the positive reception among both players and operators. Our aim in the development has been to create games that attract new player types and to expand the Live vertical into new segments, and so far, we are very happy with the outcome. All games, from the new titles within the Game Show category to the dice games, find their audiences and we see a significant increase in the number of players. The new games are not as staff intensive as the traditional table games, which in combination with a generally high efficiency in all studios contribute to the margin development. The extended portfolio also contributes to the revenue growth, but it is important to note that most of our revenues continue to derive from our core games and that the new games are still in an early stage post-launch. However, all new titles contribute to a generally higher interest in Live Casino and we believe that the Live vertical will continue to grow its share of the total online casino market. When the Live vertical grows, we take market shares – as do our customers with access to the new games.

Revenues amounted to EUR 85.7 million, which is 45 percent higher than the corresponding quarter last year. EBITDA amounted to EUR 42.7 million with a margin of 49.8 percent, which is the highest margin recorded so far in a single quarter. In the first half of the year, the margin was 47.7 percent, and we expect to be able to sustain this level in the second half as well which is why we increase our expected margin range to 47-49 percent for the 2019 full year.

The positive market development continues. The Nordics are growing, however at a somewhat slower pace as the Swedish market now is normalising following the intense start to the year as a result of the new gaming legislation. The UK continues to stabilise and is growing compared to the corresponding quarter last year. Both Rest of Europe and Rest of World also exhibit favourable growth.

Going forward, we will continue to invest in the development of both additional game shows and other innovative product types, as well as table games to meet the overall demand for Live. We also continue to invest in our studios. During the quarter, we have transferred the first tables to the new Malta studio, while also expanding the studio in Georgia. In addition, we have initiated a doubling of the capacity in New Jersey. We will also strengthen our presence in the US further and have started the planning for the construction of a studio in Pennsylvania. All in all, investments for the 2019 full year in absolute numbers will be somewhat higher than in 2018. It is imperative for us to meet the demand for Live, to continue to enable innovation within the company and to constantly increase the gap to competition. Connected to this, it is important to remember that in a case where we must prioritise, we will always put growth before margins.

During the first half of the year, we have laid the foundation for Evolution’s continued leadership in Live Casino. A proof of this was when we received the award as Live Casino Supplier of the Year for the tenth consecutive year at the EGR B2B Awards in June. The award goes straight to all our employees. I am immensely proud of everyone’s achievements so far this year, and the innovation power they possess creates confidence for the future.

Since Evolution’s inception, we have had a paranoid approach to our development, and given all achievements so far in 2019 I would like to conclude these comments by pointing out that we are never fully satisfied, we never sit back and each day, we fight to become a little bit better.”
