Helio Gaming CEO to tell ALF co-operation is the new competition

 

Malta, 10th July 2018 – Helio Gaming’s Richard Mifsud will tell next week’s Alternative Lotteries Forum that emerging lottery providers present an opportunity to state-run operators rather than a threat.

The emergence of new online lottery products and the popularity of betting on lotteries has re-invigorated the vertical in recent times, providing sportsbooks and casinos with the opportunity to diversify their products portfolios.

In many cases around the world it is also challenging the monopolies of state-run operations, with many claiming that it is having a negative effect on revenues and money going to good causes.

Yet, Mifsud, who is CEO of alternative provider Helio Gaming, believes these traditional operators – and regulators – have the opportunity to embrace the innovations companies like his are bringing to the market.

He said: “There has been a lot of negative talk about the new lotteries and in particular betting on lotteries, and I can see why those who have enjoyed a dominant position until now feel threatened by their rise.

But I think they could embrace the technology and innovation behind them in order to revitalise their revenues and reclaim lost market share.

Many of the traditional lotteries are yet to embrace the potential of online – and mobile in particular – yet and are still reliant on their land-based revenues

But they can take the alternative lotteries on at their own game by being more flexible with their product portfolio and introducing new games and forms of delivery. Emerging markets specifically have a great opportunity.

Helio Gaming offers a number of tailored jackpot games to its clients, including its flagship Lotto Hero game which offers a guaranteed Euros 1,000,000 prize on the hour every hour.

Requiring no skill or pre-existing knowledge, the games widen the operator’s portfolio, boost acquisition, retention and enhance the ability to cross-sell to players by offering high-frequency, life-changing prizes.

Hosted on a multi-tenant platform, which enables it to be provided to players around the world through operator websites, Lotto Hero guarantees operators risk-free distribution with an attractive commission structure that offers higher returns than products such as slots.

The product is one of a number of customisable new games devised by the Malta-based provider, including daily, weekly, and event-based draws, which can be branded by individual operators to appeal to a large number of customer demographics.

The Alternative Lottery Forum takes place at Amsterdam’s Novotel on Tuesday 17th July. The Disruptive Lottery session takes place between 11:30am and 12:00pm.

Former jockey who was pronounced dead for six seconds after a fall in 2013 has embarked on a new training career with some high-profile owners 

Star Sports is the new sponsor of Brian Toomey’s yard in Buckinghamshire.

The 34-year-old, who was forced to retire as a jockey after a horrific fall at Perth in 2013 which almost claimed his life, has embarked on his first full season as a trainer, based at Bowstridge Farm in Chalfont St Giles.

After being granted his trainer’s licence in October, he has already secured some high-profile owners, including Amo Racing, Clipper Logistics, Jimmy Fyffe and Jeff Smith. Harry Redknapp provided him with his first winner when Wake Up Harry won at Kempton on 20th December.

Toomey joins leading jockey Harry Skelton and recently retired legendary rider Davy Russell in Star Sports’ stable of racing ambassadors. He will provide regular updates on the yard’s runners, his views on the biggest races and meetings during the Flat season, and video content looking back at his career as a jockey, his recovery from the fall and life as a new trainer.

“Becoming a trainer has been a dream for a long time,” said Toomey. “My story is an unusual one and I know how lucky I am to be here.

“I’m hugely grateful to all the owners who have supported me at such an early stage of my career, my landlord at Bowstridge Farm as it’s such a brilliant place to train and now to my new sponsors, Star Sports.

“I’m looking forward to telling my story as a new trainer and updating Star Sports’ customers on our runners, as well as my views on the big races and issues in the industry.”

Luke Tarr, Head of PR at Star Sports, said: “Brian’s story is truly inspirational. To achieve what he has, both in his recovery from such a serious head injury and in his determined pursuit of a trainer’s licence, shows exactly what he is made of, and we are delighted to sponsor the yard.

“He has already attracted some massive owners and we’re excited to produce some top-quality content with Brian at the beginning of what we’re sure will be a very successful training career.”
