EvenBet Gaming launches new poker network for South America
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Leading online gaming software developer EvenBet Gaming has rolled out a new poker network across South and Latin America, breathing fresh life into the vertical for loyal and largely untapped audiences across the region’s emerging markets.

This breakthrough launch enables EvenBet’s growing group of operator-partners to target players in established igaming jurisdictions, such as Colombia, with further expansion soon to follow across Peru, Argentina and Brazil. Early adopters, including Apuesta Rapida, MiJugada and online casino JugarPrimero, have already been impressed by EvenBet’s world-class omnichannel platform, which offers over 32 different games types.

Eight standalone poker rooms and casino operators have joined the new network, with several more deployments scheduled for January alone. Featuring individual online poker projects, alongside existing casino and sportsbook partners, the network’s flexibility is generating proven traction across the igaming spectrum, with everyone from start-ups to established operators already successfully integrated.

EvenBet’s state-of-the-art technology and functionality allow for a simple API integration, with other features including a seamless wallet and a full user database, all founded on a continually upgraded and localised UI. In addition, EvenBet poker rooms have a flexible front end which allows them to be customised to any operator’s specific branding.

Dmitry Starostenkov, EvenBet Gaming CEO, said: “This landmark launch puts the exclamation mark on a year of highlights for EvenBet. The new network seamlessly scales and fits with all types of project – for example, increasing revenue for existing casinos, while also providing sufficient liquidity for any new players on the market. It’s an exciting and ambitious mission, as we bid to become the number-one poker software supplier for South and Latin America, especially as regulation rolls out in countries like Peru, Argentina and Brazil. Our first operators are already up and running with their poker room, while the initial feedback that we’ve received at summits, such as SAGSE Buenos Aires, has been hugely encouraging.

“We’ve recently reached another milestone with over 80 clients’ projects now active worldwide across established and emerging markets, demonstrating a remarkable 400% growth rate in just three years and optimising the vertical for a huge continent of loyal and enthusiastic poker players. It all underscores our determination to diversify both the product and platforms of industry leaders across the globe, boosting engagement and retention for operators as we go.

“When you base much of your business model around emerging markets, a key focus for us at EvenBet, flexibility and localisation remain the cornerstones. I firmly believe poker to be the most attractive and reliable game for driving improved dwell-time, comparing favourably with other casino, slots and table games through its inherent reliance on genuine skill, wit and knowledge. These unique attributes will also serve to attract the next generation of poker players.

“Poker is a proven cross-channel tool, enriched by EvenBet’s exciting multi-format gameplay, which is benefitting operators across the globe. With so much core technological evolution already behind us, we now look forward to growing in accordance with those advances. ICE London is our next stop on the conference circuit and we look forward to catching up with existing partners and meeting new clients with whom we can broaden our mutual horizons. Come visit us at stand S3-200.”

On Feb. 19-23 the Ukrainian capital hosted an international esports tournament WePlay! Dota 2 Tug of War: Mad Moon with a $300,000 prize pool. The event included players from Sweden, Poland, Jordan, Germany, Serbia, Argentina, Peru, and other countries.

Between Feb. 20 and 23, the players competed in front of a live audience at Kyiv concert-hall VDNG (pavilion #9). The residents and guests of the city had an opportunity to attend the event for free and meet esports legends such as Danil “Dendi” Ishutin, Clement “Puppey” Ivanov, Kuro “KuroKy” Salehi Takhasomi, and many others.

At the venue, WePlay! Esports and the event partners provided various activities. For example, the visitors could participate in amateur tournaments and win prizes at the WePlay! Tournament Platform stand. After their matches, the professional teams participated in autograph signing sessions.

Now that the tournament has ended, the WePlay! Esports team has received a plethora of positive feedback about the show component of the event. From SFM-clips, augmented reality, music performances, and the atmosphere of cyberpunk, the viewers were delighted by what they saw on live streams and on the stage. The approach to organizing esports events where competitive matches are a part of a show is something we call esportainment.

“Each tournament is another challenge on the quest for our goal — organizing the most popular esports shows in the world. We thrive not only to live up to the expectations of our audience but also to exceed them. WePlay! Mad Moon proved once again that we are on the right path. In March, we will announce a new event plan. Trust me; it will be impressive.”
– Managing Partner of WePlay! Esports Yuriy Lazebnikov

One of the most extraordinary moments of the show happened when teams arrived on stage on board the Madmoontruck. This moment was extensively covered in the press and went viral on social media.

In the finals of WePlay! Mad Moon, champions of the two previous Dota Pro Circuit events went toe to toe in a nail-biter series. Team Secret won the first two games of the best of 5 series, but Team Nigma managed to come back and win the championship.

WePlay! Mad Moon prize pool allocation:

  • Amer “Miracle-“ Al-Barkawi (Team Nigma) won $10,000 as the core MVP
  • Maroun “GH Merhej (Team Nigma) won $10,000 as the support MVP

WePlay! Mad Moon is the final tournament of the Dota 2 Tug of War trilogy series. It also included WePlay! Radiant with a prize pool of $50,000 and WePlay! Dire with a prize pool of $30,000.

According to analytical company Esports Charts, the event attracted 295,110 peak viewers during the series between Team Nigma and Virtus.pro. The official English-speaking broadcast peaked at 91,093 viewers.

“We are happy about breaking yet another record in viewership. The WePlay! Esports team once again organized a show that WOWED! We’ve set the bar even higher for ourselves and esports in general. We will only allow ourselves to get better with time.”
