Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

Online lottery betting provider Multilotto has teamed up with Direkten as they launch a new in-store gaming platform, rolled out to 30 shops across Sweden.

 

The online gaming market is continuously evolving and demanding innovation from operators. Direkten, in collaboration with Spelombudet Norden AB, have now rolled out a new platform available in 30 stores offering customers an enhanced gaming experience.

Multilotto together with some of Sweden’s biggest online Casino brands are the first to embark on this project which will offer players easy access to the biggest global lottery jackpots and casino games.

With a focus on giving their customers more of a choice, for Direkten this was a natural step in an ever-changing gaming market. The in-store tablets offer information about the different betting products and bridges the much needed gap between online and retail.

Niklas Fagerström, Swedish Country Manager at Multilotto said: “We are very excited about this campaign as it gives us a chance to reach players who would normally interact with betting in-store rather than online. Considering Direkten retail coverage across Sweden, this will offer Multilotto a great market and our players an unprecedented choice when it comes to betting on the biggest global lottery jackpots.”

We are very happy to have Multilotto on board in our gaming platform. Multilotto has a great product that suits our in-store offer very well, and at the same time it is continuously being asked for by our customers, says Svante Törnqvist, CEO at Direkten.”

Multilotto is one of the leading international betting services for lotteries offering secure and competitive bets. No matter your location, you can bet on the biggest lottery jackpots from around the globe, accessing lottery giants such as the Powerball and Mega Millions from the comfort of your home.

Enormous potential for serious games: sales revenue expected to grow by 19 per cent annually in Germany
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

German serious games market likely to grow to 370 million US dollars by 2023
‘Considering the current turmoil in many industries, more companies should move with the times and use serious games as part of their employee training’

The German market for serious games is expected to grow significantly in the coming years: sales revenue in Germany is likely to increase by an average of 19 per cent annually, and market volume is projected to grow accordingly, to 370 million US dollars by 2023. This information was announced today by game – the German Games Industry Association. These figures are based on a projection from auditing and consulting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers. And the global trend looks similar: worldwide sales revenue from serious games is projected to grow by 19 per cent, creating a market worth approximately 9.2 billion US dollars by 2023.

‘This data on the German market for serious games – which has never been presented in this form before – demonstrates that serious games boast enormous potential in many areas, such as education and health care, and they also offer very strong economic prospects,’ says Felix Falk, Managing Director of game. ‘Whether learners are school pupils or career professionals, serious games increase learners’ motivation over the long term and make complex concepts easier to understand. They present a major opportunity for our knowledge-based society, and considering all their positive aspects, they are not being used nearly often enough.’

Human resources managers rate serious games particularly positively

The positive aspects of serious games are also important in a professional context. 98 per cent of the human resources managers surveyed who had already used serious games rated them as good or fairly good. 89 per cent observed an improvement in learning performance, and 86 per cent believed that their employees enjoyed the games. Around three quarters (76 per cent) of the human resources managers surveyed observed an increase in motivation among their employees.

Felix Falk: ‘Many in the business world still have reservations about serious games, as they feel that games are the antithesis of work. However, the survey results show how positively human resources managers rate serious games. Considering the current turmoil in many industries, more companies should move with the times and use serious games as part of their employee training. These games give employees the opportunity to learn key skills for the digital workplace alongside their colleagues in an interactive, digital format. And they can also give companies a strong competitive advantage.’

Further data from the survey on serious games conducted by auditing and consulting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers can be found in the new publication ‘game Fokus Serious Games’, which is available free of charge and in German language on seriousgames.game.de

 

About the market data
The data comes from a survey conducted by auditing and consulting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) GmbH. 407 human resources managers were surveyed, comprising 234 men and 173 women. The average age of survey participants was 43.1. The survey was conducted in the second half of December 2018.

Footstock grows eight-fold in three months and integrates HooYu to deliver more streamlined KYC process

Leading KYC and customer onboarding specialist, HooYu, has announced a partnership with leading fantasy football gaming operator, Footstock.

As Covid-19 has hit sportsbook operators hard, Footstock has enjoyed a period of rapid expansion, growing eight-fold in the last three months. HooYu is now integrated into the Footstock customer sign-up process providing UI and UX tools alongside a range of KYC technology to provide Footstock customers with a smooth and easy digital journey.

Prior to using HooYu, Footstock were manually performing KYC, receiving ID documents from customers, and taking up to a day to approve customer registrations. Footstock now use HooYu to deploy identity database checks, ID document validation, proof of address matching and PEPs and Sanctions checks to verify customer age and identity. As a result, the customer sign-up journey can be completed in a few minutes instead of up to a day.

James Copewell, CMO at Footstock, said: “Any delay or obstacle in the customer sign-up process is an opportunity for that customer to abandon and drop-off but HooYu has been able to automate and streamline the KYC process for us.”

David Pope, Marketing Director at HooYu, said: “The Footstock fantasy football proposition has hit the back of the net now that real-life football is back, and I’m sure they will continue to grow with HooYu here to help them balance the twin demands of KYC compliance and customer experience.”
