Evolution Gaming, leading provider of Live Casino solutions, announced the launch of its unique new game, MONOPOLY Live, created via sublicense from Scientific Games in partnership with Hasbro, Inc. . The new game, first unveiled at ICE 2019 in February, is available only from Evolution and further extends the company’s growing range of game show style games.

MONOPOLY Live is an all-new special edition of Evolution’s Dream Catcher money wheel, in which the world’s most popular board game meets Live Casino — complete with augmented reality, 3D Bonus rounds built around the adventures of MR. MONOPOLY, and with the chance of big ‘multiplier’ wins.

According to Todd Haushalter, Evolution’s Chief Product Officer, “It is a real honour to work with one of the world’s best-loved brands to create such a unique game. MONOPOLY Live represents a real breakthrough in our industry and redefines Live Casino entertainment.”

Haushalter explained, “Dream Catcher has been loved by players ever since its launch in 2017 and we are very excited for the launch of this special MONOPOLY Live edition of Dream Catcher. A game like this has never been created before and it leverages some of the most advanced technology available including the use of augmented reality. Our emphasis was on creating an immensely fun game for players and we are confident that it offers players a truly unique gaming experience with the combination of the main money wheel game, the live host and exciting Bonus rounds with MR. MONOPOLY in his 3D MONOPOLY world, complete with all the familiar MONOPOLY game elements.”

Martin Carlesund, Group CEO at Evolution Gaming, added: “MONOPOLY Live is a very exciting launch for Evolution and its licensees. It is the epitome of the highly visual and entertaining games in our fast-growing Game Shows category. This is a landmark moment for Evolution — to launch a Live Casino version of such an iconic and well-loved game in association with Scientific Games and Hasbro.”
“At Hasbro, we are always eager to offer fans new, innovative ways to interact with the iconic MONOPOLY brand,” notes Mark Blecher, Hasbro’s SVP of Corporate Strategy and Business Affairs. “We are thrilled to see MR. MONOPOLY transport into a 3D world to host MONOPOLY Live and bring the fast-paced world of real-estate into Live Casino entertainment.”

Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

Europe’s online gambling market has shown an impressive growth last year.

According to the market data published by the European Gaming and Betting Association (EGBA) in partnership with H2 Gambling Capital, Europe’s online gambling market grew 11% from €20 billion GGR in 2017 to €22.2 billion GGR in 2018.

According to the new data, EGBA members had 16.5 million active customers and generated €5.41 billion in online gambling GGR in 2018. The UK market (34.2%) accounted for the largest portion of the total EU online gambling market, with a market value of €7.3 billion GGR.

Sports betting was the most popular online gambling activity with 42.5% of the total EU market share (worth €9.4 billion GGR), followed by casino games at 32.4% (€7.2 billion GGR), lottery at 12.6% (€2.8 billion GGR), poker at 5% (€1.1 billion GGR), bingo at 4.3% (€1 billion GGR), and other games with a 3.2% market share (€0.7 billion GGR).

As per the new data, 57% of online bets were placed from a desktop computer, while 43% of online bets were placed from phones and tablets – up from 39% in 2017 and highlighting a shift towards the use of mobile devices.

“Europe’s online gambling market continues to show a strong demand-driven growth and a switch to mobile devices. But its increased popularity reinforces the need for more consistent and strong consumer protections and industry standards across all EU countries. The current situation of diverging and sometimes conflicting regulations in EU countries is detrimental to consumers, authorities and operators alike,” Maarten Haijer, Secretary General of EGBA said.

One of Switzerland’s first licensed online casinos leveraging SafeCharge’s best-in-class payments technology for its iGaming service

SafeCharge, a Nuvei company, announces it has partnered with leading Swiss operator Grand Casino Baden to process credit card payments for its digital gaming platform jackpots.ch, developed by Gamanza. The collaboration provides Grand Casino Baden, a pioneer in online regulated gaming in the region, the ability to better address the needs of a growing audience of online gamers.

Earlier this year, Switzerland’s Federal Gaming Commission (ESBK) made the decision to regulate the country’s online gambling market, allowing Swiss land-based casinos to operate online. SafeCharge offers Visa and Mastercard acquiring services issued by Swiss banks, and through a single API integration that connects to over 180 payment methods, including local favorite Post Finance, enables jackpots.ch players the flexibility to pay through the method of their choice.

By utilising SafeCharge Cashier, Grand Casino Baden benefits from a frictionless payment experience for its online customers, delivering seamless deposits and withdrawals, plus compliance with anti-money laundering (AML) laws. SafeCharge handles the safeguarding of sensitive information, descoping the casino’s PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards) liability. Further, by integrating with SafeCharge Cashier, Grand Casino Baden aims to increase its readiness for complying with the EU’s revised Payment Services Directive (PSD2) strong customer authentication (SCA) requirements.

“We knew that we had to partner with a technology player with the highest credentials and the ability to support our business within an extremely complex market, outside of EU legislations,” said Marcel Tobler, chief financial officer at Grand Casino Baden. “SafeCharge has been our preferred choice thanks to its proven track-record in the industry and unrivalled experience in fraud prevention and AML.”

“We are delighted to be working with the team at Grand Casino Baden to provide payments for its rapidly growing iGaming operation,” stated Yuval Ziv, MD of SafeCharge and head of global acquiring. “This partnership marked our entrance into the Swiss online gaming market, and we are excited at the prospect of our payments technology platform better servicing the region’s customers. As demonstrated by our long-standing collaborations with multiple tier 1 gaming operators, our solution is the ideal choice for institutions who require navigating the regulatory complexities of local markets without compromising user experience.”

Through this partnership, SafeCharge has displayed it is well-positioned to address the needs of the rapidly growing Swiss online gaming market. Fore more information about SafeCharge Cashier, click here.
