UltraPlay will attend the Eastern European Gaming Summit (20th November) and BEGExpo (21-22 November). The company’s CEO Mario Ovcharov, and Head of Trading, Peter Ivanov, have much to share on eSports and US sports and how vital it is for the gaming business, especially in Eastern Europe, and how operators can benefit from both gaming verticals.

On 20th of November, Mario Ovcharov, will be a part of the discussion panel “eSports – Beyond the hype”. Along with other professionals he will discuss the future and current state of eSports. UltraPlay’s collected data and case-studies on eSports shows that eSports has a completely new audience, the Millennials who bet predominantly on eSports and this trend will continue to grow. The top 3 eSports titles are responsible for more than 60% of the betting volume, but extensive coverage is vital as it is the initial impression of the potential bettor, and very much like in regular sports live betting is preferred.

Also on the 20th of November, Peter Ivanov, will have a presentation on “How do punters bet on US Sports”. As the Head of Trading at UltraPlay, Peter has excellent knowledge of the worldwide sports gambling market. Some of the highlights in the presentation will cover:

  • The US sport punter: expectations and behavior
  • The situation of the US Market
  • Opportunities in the US Market

To learn more on how US sports differs from the one in Europe, don’t miss the chance to hear more on the broad experience and insights UltraPlay can share and discuss it further on.
On 22nd November Mario Ovcharov will have a short presentation in the Sales Pitch Zone of BEGE on “How to attract the eSports audience to your betting brand”. Esports revenue is expected to surpass $1 billion by 2019, it has overtaken golf and rugby in terms of popularity, and the company’s CEO will share with operators and all interested to enter this very specific market how their business can get the most out of it.

UltraPlay envisions eSports as a constantly growing sector. Company’s experience shows that being in the gaming business, paying attention to it is a must. This industry has been growing for the past 15 years recording a tremendous boost in the last 4 years.

In a surprising development, Boris Filatov, the mayor of Dnipro city, has claimed that the gambling ban in Ukraine has failed. He made this statement at a forum titled “From Kruty to Brussels. We are going our way” which was conducted in Kyiv.

The mayor supported legalising gambling industry in the country as well. He pointed out that the fight against the illegal slot machines and lotto halls is ineffective.

“The ban on gambling in Ukraine failed and turned into a corrupt feeder for law enforcement and members of the parliament. Dnipro and all the cities of Ukraine are filled with lotto and gambling halls,” the mayor said.

He urged the local authorities to regulate the gaming business. “It is necessary to give the local communities the opportunity to regulate gambling business. And only we, together with our fellow countrymen, will determine the balance,” he added.
