Bede Gaming set for Spanish expansion
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Provider is building on established market presence with fully-licensed and scalable platform

 

Bede Gaming, the award-winning supplier of software to the online gaming industry, is to kick-start 2019 with a concerted expansion in Spain.

The Bede platform is fully-licensed by the DGOJ, the Spanish gaming authority, and features a wide range of cutting-edge, proactive marketing tools alongside a portfolio of more than 3,000 games and two direct sportsbooks with Kambi and SBTech live on the platform.

Responsible gambling is central to the Bede platform, with deposit limits and automated flagging of players displaying signs of problem gambling behaviour setting it apart as the safest place to play.

Ross Haselhurst, Commercial Director, Bede Gaming, said: “Spain is a core target market for Bede as we look to capitalise on the significant commercial momentum of our platform. Spanish operator groups are well placed to take advantage of the transformative impact our vast range of high-quality content and powerful automated marketing tools can have, and we are enthused by the possibilities as we push further into the market.

“We are seeing more and more operators that are looking to expand their footprint but find themselves crippled by the resources required to service new markets while maintaining performance in their core markets. By offering a direct and single route into the Spanish market, we’re predicting significant growth for Bede and our partners in the months to come.”

The growth opportunity in the Spanish market is clear, with online GGR rising 30% year-on-year during Q3 2018 according to the DGOJ.

The provider’s technology is already live in the Spanish market with leading operator Enracha.

Bede has enjoyed a strong period of commercial growth, having been selected by the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation in September 2018 to provide the lottery’s new enterprise-wide digital platform.

This agreement came alongside a series of recent content integrations with leading providers including Play’n GO and SBTech.

Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Payments technology firm Nuvei Corp is going to buy SafeCharge International Group through an all-cash deal valued at $889 million. As per the agreement, SafeCharge shareholders would receive $5.55 in cash for each share held.

“The board is unanimously recommending this all-cash offer by Nuvei to buy SafeCharge at an attractive premium, which represents compelling value for SafeCharge shareholders. The price premium Nuvei is offering reflects SafeCharge’s leading position in the high growth e-commerce payments market, the strength of its own technology platform, its diversified and stable customer base and the significant experience in the payments industry of SafeCharge’s management team. It is for these reasons that the board is unanimously recommending this transaction to SafeCharge shareholders,” Roger Withers, Chairman of SafeCharge said.

“SafeCharge is the payment technology partner for the world’s most demanding businesses. Nuvei is one of the leading providers of technology-driven payment solutions to merchants and technology and distribution partners, primarily in the United States and Canada. Both companies have built strong positions in the payment sector in their respective markets, with minimal geographic, customer or industry overlap,” David Avgi, Chief Executive Officer of SafeCharge said.

“The Acquisition should enable SafeCharge to benefit from Nuvei’s North American footprint and sales and marketing capability to fulfil and accelerate its growth ambitions. The board believes that our businesses have similar shared entrepreneurial cultures and is confident that Nuvei’s plans to invest in and grow the SafeCharge business mean the proposed transaction is positive for SafeCharge and its stakeholders as a whole,” David Avgi added.

“We are very excited about the combination of SafeCharge and Nuvei, which will create a truly global, leading, payments technology solution provider with significant scale. Our businesses are highly complementary from multiple perspectives including geography, technology, key verticals and customers. We think the technology platform SafeCharge has developed is exceptional and will serve as the go-forward foundation from which we will continue to grow the combined business and provide best-in-class products and services to our customers and partners. Lastly, we look forward to welcoming SafeCharge’s highly experienced management team and employees to the Nuvei family,” Philip Fayer, Chairman and CEO of Nuvei said.

EGBA Calls on European Parliament and Commission to Protect Online Gambling Sector

EGBA Calls on European Parliament and Commission to Protect Online Gambling Sector
Reading Time: 1 minute

 

European Gaming and Betting Association (EGBA) has called on the European Parliament and Commission to act in the online gambling sector to ensure Europe’s online gamblers are better protected.

Online betting represents more than 20% of the EU gambling market. EU countries have different rules for regulating online gambling and there are significant disparities in the quality of these national regulations, including the consumer protections available to online gamblers. The lack of common online gambling regulations fails to protect Europe’s players from often bogus and unsupervised websites operated from outside the EU.

“In 2019, there’s no reason why online gamblers living in one member country should be less protected than those living in another – but they are. That’s why EGBA is calling for common EU rules and better regulatory cooperation to ensure a more consistent and better standard of protection for all Europe’s online gamblers, including access to a national self-exclusion register and protection against threats from outside the EU,” Maarten Haijer, Secretary General, EGBA said.
