Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Relax Gaming, the new-breed games and platform supplier, is celebrating 5 years of its award-winning poker product by sharing the news of expansion into the French market together with long-term customer Kindred in the beginning of Q2.

As the only new market entrant for several years, the provider will launch its full poker offering, one that has bucked the market trend and seen continued growth over its 5 year life-time.

Daniel Eskola, CEO at Relax Gaming, said the agreement with long-standing partner Kindred is a significant one in an important market, and that it will demonstrate the potential of the provider’s popular award-winning poker platform for other local markets further down the line.

He added: “We remain committed to the continued delivery of superior quality products to Kindred, but we’re opening the door for product growth further down the line by adding more operators and jurisdictions as demand dictates. Poker has and remains a core product for us and one we know we do well.”

As recently as December, Relax Gaming launched its new poker product, HexaPro. A game format where the customer can win up to 1,000 times their stake within minutes, with only two opponents. This format is hugely popular, especially in the French market where players are famously passionate for the game variant.

Martin Stalros, COO at Relax Gaming commented: “We have gained success with this product in many of Kindred’s other markets already and I’m very excited with the opportunity to give even more poker players the chance to enjoy the Relax Gaming poker experience, with a foundation built to be fun, fair and exciting.”

Relax Gaming offers fresh content and over 280 games with transparent commercial terms. It has grown its global presence significantly over the last 12 months, agreeing a wealth of new deals with leading operators, suppliers and platforms.

Merkur Gaming is going to implement new initiatives and strategies to recover from the Impact of COVID-19.

Merkur Gaming’s chief executive, International, Athanasios ‘Sakis’ Isaakidis, is at the forefront of supporting the Merkur Board and bringing to fruition new initiatives for the short term and also the strategies that will be necessary as more familiar business levels resume. “We are not on holiday and we are not sleeping” he said “we are working very hard to support our customers, in whatever they need, during these difficult times.”

Mr. Isaakidis went on to explain a brand new initiative that is just one example of the efforts being made to support Merkur Gaming’s customers.

He said: “What we will be bringing to our customers, starting in early November, will be a live stream presentation from our showroom in Luebbeke. This is not a ‘virtual’ event. Our invited customers will each be hosted by their own, familiar, company representative, and in real time. They will be able to see our new products, our new cabinets and our new games, discuss them one-to-one, ask any questions they have and so get a very valuable first insight into what will be available from Merkur Gaming. I promise you, it will intensive and it will be exciting. Exciting for us to be able to see our customers’ reactions and exciting for them to be up to speed with what we are very confident will be major hit products on gaming floors soon.”

Mr. Isaakidis went on to talk about where gaming is taking place successfully at present. “We are, of course, encouraging the industry to ‘Restart with Merkur’ and, in quite a few locations, that is already happening. Our business in Eastern Europe, in the Balkans particularly, is as healthy as it can be in the current situation. In Serbia, Croatia, Montenegro and Macedonia gaming entertainment is doing well. The recent announcement of the new gaming law in the Ukraine is truly exciting and we want all our customers and business partners to know that Merkur is coming, and we expect to be a major supplier there. Early 2021 will see the first installations in the Ukraine and there will be some exciting new developments in Bulgaria also.

In our home market, Germany, casino operations are doing well and the Gauselmann Group’s mainstay, the many gaming arcades that we operate, are active and providing players with the high class gaming entertainment that they have come to expect. In this the existing regulations that gaming arcades must comply with have helped meet the primary need of keeping both players and our staff safe and well. It is mandatory to provide ample space between each gaming machine and that, combined with the highest levels of social distancing, sanitation and protective shielding from machine to machine, has given our loyal players the confidence to return, and in ever increasing numbers.

Despite all of the difficulties of the past months the entire Merkur Gaming team is looking forward to the challenges, and the opportunities, that lie ahead. We have always been passionate about our place in the national and international gaming industry and, right now and into the future we are focusing on keeping that passion and looking forward to what will certainly be a bright future.”

The online gambling market in Spain has grown 17.7% year-on-year in the second quarter of 2020.

Total gross revenue of €208.9m (£189.2m/$245.2m) for the three months to June 30 represents a 4.2% decline compared to Q1 2020, however, while advertising spend by licensees dipped significantly during the period.

Sports betting revenue was €68.1m, which represented a 20.8% year-on-year decline, and a 38.4% drop from Q1. Pre-match, fixed-odds staking fell 49.0% to €288.9m, with in-play wagers down 39.6% to €698.6m, as total stakes across all products and bet types declined 40.4% to €1.05bn.

Strong performance from online casino offset the betting vertical’s declines, and suggested players had shifted from one vertical to the other. Revenue grew to €93.5m, a 36.5% improvement on the prior year, with customer stakes up 25.3% to €2.86bn.

This was largely down to slot play, with the product accounting for €51.9m of casino GGR, up 30.4% year-on-year, and more than 19.9% quarter-on-quarter. Live roulette continued to grow strongly, contributing revenue of €27.0m, a 75.7% jump from Q2 2019.

Poker saw revenue almost double, rising 97.4% to €38.2m, while bingo also enjoyed a strong quarter, with its contribution climbing 66.9% to €5.0m.
