Service available across all 888.com brands
UK, London, 16 July 2018 – MuchBetter, the iGaming payments company, today announced its selection by 888.com as a new payment option across its Casino, Poker, and Sport brands. 888.com is one of the biggest gaming operators in the world and it chose MuchBetter to help bolster the payment options available to its players, lower transaction costs and provide a smooth mobile integration and user experience.
MuchBetter offers integration with mobile and balance between usability and security, with the service incorporating many modern mobile features such as biometric authentication. MuchBetter’s approach to transaction fees was also a key consideration. MuchBetter does not charge per transaction, in the manner of traditional e-wallets. Instead, it charges operators on a net-deposit basis every month according to the monetary value of each player.
“Large brands can’t afford not to pay attention to their payment partners. The gaming industry can be a business of fine margins and high volumes, so paying over the odds for something as seemingly small as transaction fees can be incredibly damaging to any operator, even household names.
“Besides operating on adequate commercial terms, operator and payment partners need to be in close alignment to support each other in international expansion, a topic increasingly important to drive growth. One of the most business critical items in online gaming is the payments strategy, common sense suggest that a close alignment and strategic spirit between the parties can only be advantageous. Both sides operate in regulatory landscapes with great overlap, whether this being AML or licensing requirements. One can learn and benefit from the other’s expertise and both need to ensure in unison that the payment service provided helps operator stay compliant, with an eye to the future too of course.” – said Jens Bader, MuchBetter co-founder exclusively for European Gaming.
MuchBetter, operated by MIR Limited UK Ltd, an FCA-licensed and regulated e-money issuer, is the new payments application for iGaming. Available on Android and iOS, MuchBetter make effortless online, offline and contactless payments throughout EMEA. Funds can be transferred and received in real-time and MuchBetter’s unique commercial model increases operator revenues while its anti-fraud features and use of best in class technology reduces risk.

Fugaso celebrate 3 years of innovation, growth and spinning reels with a raft of new content
International software provider Fugaso, whose stellar slots are attracting significant operator and player attention, report that the company has been thriving throughout 2019, picking up a host of new partners and launching a number of blockbuster slots titles as well as being nominated in awards shows.
Fugaso is currently on a roll, having recently been announced as a finalist in two AskGamblers Award categories which play to the company’s strengths, Best Slots and Best Software Provider, in what is considered the world’s most prestigious casino awards.
The road to success over the last 3 years for Fugaso has been one driven by innovative in-house technology that is driving growth for the company and manifested in proprietary breakthroughs such as their ‘Rich Free Spins’ feature, which allows operators and casinos to hand out free spins to players with a multiplier on them which provides excitement with the prospect of potentially highly generous payouts. No other games manufacturer is currently offering ‘Rich Free Spins’, a key differentiator in Fugaso’s bulging technology vault.
Backed by a qualified team of iGaming experts Fugaso started out in 2016 by setting ambitious targets and launched with a 15 games-a-year structure which they quickly surpassed and by the end of 2018 began consolidating the design and engineering end of the studio with breakthrough blockbuster TrumpIt Deluxe at the beginning of the year which was launched at ICE.
The rapidly expanding Fugaso portfolio of titles is available via the GrooveGaming platform as well as from Soft Gamings, Soft Swiss, Digitain, EveryMatrix, BetConstruct , IGG, 1XBet and Parimatch, amongst many others. Releases so far this year include Trump It Deluxe, Wild Rodeo, Magic Spinners, Fugaso Airlines, Stoned Joker, Imhotep Manuscript, Book of Tattoo II and blockbuster Cleopatra’s Diary, which is in the running for Best Slots at the AskGamblers Awards. Summer hits included Deep Blue Sea and Imhotep Manuscript, which was also in the running with the AskGambler’s Awards.
All Fugaso games are available in 12 languages and can be adapted for any additional language, every game is supported by all devices, currencies and cryptocurrencies. One of the promotional tools available from the slick slots manufacturer is the Fugaso Jackpot Series Games, covering nearly 40 titles and the popular progressive are attracting substantial interest with 6-figure jackpots providing players with great opportunity of winning and operators a phenomenal promotional tool.
The entire portfolios of almost 70 Fugaso HTML5 games have been developed under the remote technical standards of the UK Gambling Commission as well as the Maltese Gaming Authority. Fugaso is planning to grow towards a much larger number of jurisdictions with many more certifications to expand their offerings further.
In what has been a very successful third year for Fugaso, the popular sequel Book Of Tattoo II has been breaking records in terms of increased player activity, a jump in unique players per session as well as a significant rise in gaming durability.
To celebrate its major milestone, Fugaso has announced that it would be offering a very special birthday commercials for the first 5 companies who integrate the expanded games portfolio, which can be viewed at www.fugaso.com/games.
said: “We’re very excited to reach our third anniversary milestone and to have gained so much business this year along with the market trust that goes with visibility in major awards. We are grateful to all those who have placed their trust in us, it’s a WIN:WIN situation and now we’ve got the kind of momentum which we could have only dreamed of when we took those first steps 3 years ago.”
