Alessandro Fried: “We are constantly monitoring the evolving global regulatory scenario”

 

Leading sports betting and gaming technology provider BtoBet welcomes the news of Argentina’s capital province of Buenos Aires passing regulation to regulate its online gaming sector for the first time.

Considered amongst the leading platform and software solutions provider in the Latin American region, BtoBet’s CEO and Chairman Alessandro Fried stated that the company is constantly monitoring the evolving regulatory scenario, and an increasingly more regulated Argentinian market will surely be generating ripples of interest amongst those operators keen on further expanding their businesses in the country.

He added that a more harmonized and standard approach to the regulatory aspect of the market ensures a robust and transparent framework that safeguards the operators’ interests and ultimately those of their players as well.

Fried commented that throughout this year BtoBet has increased significantly its presence in regulated and newly regulated scenarios, especially in the Latin America and Africa context. He further said that in Latin America “the results have exceeded our expectancies, and the prospect of a more regulated Argentinian market is an exciting development and opportunity.”

He further noted Argentina’s keen interest in sports, especially football. “Football is undoubtedly the nation’s most poplar sports, and in Maradona and Messi they have two of the greatest football players of all time to grace the world.”

BtoBet eyeing evolving South African opportunity … Publishes Industry Report “Transforming the South African iGaming Industry into a Model for Africa”

Following its expansion in regulated markets across the whole African continent, BtoBet is eyeing with interest the evolving situation concerning the South African market. Having by far the most developed technological infrastructure in Africa in terms of internet and smartphone, the opportunity is ripe for the country to thoroughly regularize the market and follow the path undertaken by other countries in order to reap more benefits whilst safeguarding not only the investment of the operators but the players’ interests as well.

With the country already boasting a strong retail gambling market, BtoBet has published an Industry Report analyzing the huge opportunity, in technological terms and market revenue, that South Africa keeps in hold for the iGaming industry, and how the introduction of a strong regulatory framework could propel the country at the forefront of the gambling industry in Africa.

Sabrina Solda, BtoBet’s Chief Marketing Officer, stated that the region already has a strong reputation from a retail perspective. The task now is to do the same for the online sector, where online gambling, including sports betting, is still unregulated. An opinion also shared by Themba Ngobese, CEO of the Casino Association of South Africa (CASA), who in a recent interview expressed his views that the government should intervene soon regarding the matter. “The government needs to step up with a deliberate and concerted effort to enforce its laws to protect the regulated gambling industry and the public.”

The Industry Report “Transforming the South African iGaming Industry into a Model for Africa” also analyses the national gambling statistics that have been published by the local National Gaming Board, which indicate that the overall Gross Gambling Revenue have been registering exponential year-on-year growth, with the GGR for the financial year of 2018 amounting to 28.8 billion rand.

Take the opportunity and download BtoBet’s latest market analysis and see how you can grasp the opportunities that the South African market keeps in hold.

Leading iGaming platform provider publishes Industry Report with focus on the Nigerian industry

 

With operators in the more mature European market facing stiff challenges in terms of regulatory upheavals and market growth somewhat plateauing, Africa has been one of the major emerging markets attracting operators’ interest seeking to diversify their operations. But in a continent where the technological sector is still earmarked by many as having significant shortfalls, West Africa and especially Nigeria, is registering significant year-on-year improvements in terms of internet and smartphone penetrations, laying a solid foundation for an exponential growth for the local iGaming industry.

However as BtoBet’s latest Industry Report analyses, online sports betting is booming largely thanks to payment systems developed by home-grown technology firms that are starting to make online businesses more viable. The payment gateways integrated in the more advanced iGaming platforms are not only resulting in faster digital payments, but have also helped to ease fears of electronic fraud, thus contributing in a shift towards online transactions, much in the same way that Safaricom’s M-Pesa money transfers have changed the scenario in which transactions are carried out in Kenya.

As stated by Alessandro Pizzolotto, STM Gaming’s CEO – with the company being BtoBet’s regional Certified Partner for Africa – “not only is the country registering a constant increase in terms of internet and smartphone penetration, but investments in the fintech sector has seen the business thrive.” He further stated that all indications are pointing to a massive potential for online penetration and expansion. “All this coupled with the fact that the local regulatory framework is one of the most robust in the region, and the local population being very passionate about sports in particular football and major European leagues, have resulted in a significant growth of Omnichannel operators in the market.”

BtoBet will be flying to Lagos for the Sports Betting West Africa summit to meet with local and international licensees keen on expanding their footprint in the continent. Schedule a meeting to meet with our team of local experts by sending an email on sales@btobet.com.

Operators can also download BtoBet’s latest Industry Report – West Africa: Driving the local iGaming industry – to have a better insight regarding the requirements and knowledge needed to become a leader in the local iGaming industry.
