Leading developer is particularly encouraged by Double Chance Poker’s reception as it promises to “make poker great again”


Leading online gaming software developer EvenBet Gaming has returned from ICE London with its poker portfolio universally recognised as the perfect vehicle with which to “make poker great again.”

Leveraging its trademark flair for innovation, EvenBet injected fresh life into the poker vertical at the industry’s most important igaming hub, with the big reveal of its exclusive, patented Double Chance Poker feature.

Double Chance Poker adds more creative mechanics to EvenBet’s multi-faceted poker mix, increasing players’ excitement and engagement by giving them more chances to win in a single cash game, or in any game of the tournament. For just a minimal ante, players can now join a parallel game if they don’t want to increase their bet pre-flop. At the same time, if a winner is defined as early as the pre-flop stage, they now enjoy a chance to double their winnings.

As a result, poker rooms now have the perfect opportunity to boost the rake up to its double: players stay in a game longer, fold less and see more flops. The retention and the lifetime value accordingly ramps for both novices and “sharks”, leading to an active check-bet-raise cycle and, ultimately, more revenue. In fast-fold games, players enjoy even more options, bringing a more sustained and deeper dive for engagement. You can try the public demo here.

Such gamified functionality is emblematic of EvenBet’s broader poker push to empower its operator partners with the tools that can furnish their players with an enhanced experience. However, Double Chance never loses sight of its classic poker fundamentals with gimmicky casino or lottery-like mechanics. Sitting alongside over 25 other poker that are bringing back poker’s glory days, EvenBet’s pioneering product portfolio is currently reigniting the vertical for its global partners in 2019.

All these components combined for a truly landmark ICE London for EvenBet, where the developer capitalised on some impressive interest and take-up in its core offering. From industry-firsts, such as the no-rake NoLimitCoin, to ground-breaking mobile apps like Poker Clubs which has been harnessing escalating smartphone adoption rates across Asian markets, the trend is unmistakable.

EvenBet CEO Dmitry Starostenkov, recently nominated for CEO of the Year at the Global Gaming Awards 2019, said: “We were thrilled with our superior stand at ICE London, not to mention the overwhelmingly positive reception our poker products received from conference delegates. The tide of poker’s renaissance has been encouraging – and it’s only running in one direction.

“I’m happy to report that visitors to the EvenBet instantly saw the LTV merits inherent to Double Chance Poker’s fresh functionality. While other product developments like Mini Games, and even our recently released Casino Management Module (third-party casino game-management which lightens the load on an operator’s staff), each demonstrated our commitment to redefining the poker igaming landscape via state-of-the-art tech and innovative ideas. Together, we can make poker great again!”

EvenBet’s platform allows operators to seamlessly integrate original, market-leading products with dependable turnkey solutions across poker and casino (all backed by multi-currency support, including Bitcoin). These products deliver scalability without ever sacrificing peace of mind.

The Netherlands has always been an important market for the Merkur brand, in terms of both the arcade and casino sectors. Holland’s current climate of positive regulation being provided by the Netherlands Gambling Authority (KSA) chaired by René Jansen has led Merkur to become a strategic partner of Gaming in Holland (GiH) and to join the GiH Conference & Expo that was held from June 20 to 21 at the Jaarbeurs expo centre in the city of Utrecht.

Since 2011, the annual Gaming in Holland Conference has been the event to find out what’s happening in the Dutch gaming market and to meet up with all the major decision makers, focusing on the entire Dutch gambling industry. The opening of the regulated online market in October 2021 not only created a completely new market segment but also materially impacted existing markets, channels and verticals.

Recognising the importance of this event Merkur made a strong commitment and created a major presence at the Expo, being represented by Merkur Gaming and Group subsidiary companies, GeWeTe and edict eGaming solutions.

“We had good discussions with many customers, especially about our new ZONIC slot machine for the Dutch arcades. This unique cabinet with its very good ergonomics and the new game package with the new FIVE game feature was very well received by our customers. In addition, discussions were also held with our many pub customers. They are already looking forward to our own next, specifically for the pub sector, exhibition that will be held on 4 July in the Van der Valk Hotel Sassenheim in the Netherlands,” Dirk Sondermann, Managing Director of Merkur Gaming, said.

“This was a great opportunity for GeWeTe. We would like to thank the organizers for a great event, for the informative conference presentations and for the possibility for us to meet with important personalities from the gaming industry in Holland,” Aristidis Tsikouras, CEO of GeWeTe, said.

“The Dutch gaming market has always been an important part of GeWeTe, and not just because our company is geographically close to the Netherlands. Our extensive range of products and our solutions meet all needs, for arcades, gastronomy and also for casinos,” Aristidis Tsikouras added.

Holland Casino, FNV and De Unie have reached a negotiation agreement for a new collective labour agreement. The parties have been discussing this in recent weeks. The new collective labour agreement will run from 1 June 2022 to 30 September 2023.

The wage will be structurally increased by 2.5% from 1 June 2022. A nominal amount of 60 euros per month will also be added on a structural basis. On 1 January 2023, wages will increase by another 0.75%. It has also been agreed that the hourly wage for employees is at least 14 euros. In addition, all employees who are employed by Holland Casino in July this year will receive a one-off gross amount of 350 euros based on full-time employment in that month.

“The past two years have been dominated for Holland Casino by the impact of the coronavirus. We were forced to close our doors for months and were confronted with many restrictive measures. In the discussions about wages, we had to take into account Holland Casino’s financial position on the one hand, and inflation and the situation on the labor market on the other. I am pleased that we have achieved a good result in a relatively short period of time. With this increase, there is a balanced agreement that is good for our employees and for Holland Casino,” Marleen Berk, HR Director at Holland Casino, said.
