Custom presents the “Total Experience” for lottery, gaming and betting world



Custom presents the “Total Experience”
Reading Time: 4 minutes


“Total Experience”: hospitality, gaming, as well as betting and payment services intersect with the various facets of the technology. Custom is already present in over 76 countries around the world
Synergy between technologies, fiscal experience, the capacity to engage end customers and a service centre of excellence: Custom at ICE – Stand S3-310 – preempts the demands of the gaming, lottery and betting world and presents itself as a unique partner for players around the world, with over 15 years of experience.
Today, the world of gaming, lotteries and betting is passing through a period of intense development and fusion. From a simple location providing only betting or gaming services, it is now becoming an environment where you can enjoy a complete and relaxing experience, with restaurants, bars and music. End customers seek a “Total Experience”, which requires appropriate services and technologies that can meet people’s needs for comfort and entertainment. At ICE, Custom presents a new approach to this sector, thanks to more than 15 years of experience in gaming, lotteries and betting, with over 120,000 field-based terminals throughout the world, including 50,000 value adeed services integrated system.

Cross-sectoral technologies and solutions: a single partner for all needs

Today, Custom is the only player able to offer a range of hardware, software and service solutions to meet the new demands of the gaming world. Founded in 1992 and present in 15 fiscal markets and 76 countries around the world, with over 680 professional staff, six software labs and five production facilities (Italy, India, Romania, China and Brazil), the company has made a cross-sectoral approach one of its basic characteristics. The continuous development of diversified yet synergetic expertise and skills has enabled the company to excel in numerous markets, often being the first to propose specific solutions.  This strategic mindset allows an increase of vertical skills in certain sectors, which, when integrated, offer an approach totally centred on the operator’s needs, with close attention also given to the end consumer’s experience. The key example comes from the gaming world, where Custom supports its customers with a comprehensive offer that brings together hospitality solutions (POS PC systems, fiscal printers, cash registers and mobile devices) and those more targeted towards betting and gaming, such as high-speed scanners and industry-specific printers. Nowadays, however, betting outlets are increasingly used for the payment of services such as car tax, insurance, subscriptions and fines: for this range of needs, Custom also provides hardware, software and services for extensive and constant support in all phases of its customers’ business.

The Custom Service Centre: excellence since 2001

Custom anticipated what has now become a mantra by almost twenty years: the product is important but service is essential. On the strength on this conviction, the company employs a dedicated support staff of 300 technicians, available from 7.00 am to 9.00 pm each day, to attend to customers’ needs. At any time and in any place: this is the secret of a proximity service that achieves high KPIs for the closure of service tickets, with an 8-hour Service Level Agreement worldwide. An original, “made-to-measure” and truly next-business-day service, based on the evolution of the market and the needs and technology that revolve around the store from day to day. Custom service is capable of fully managing the store machine fleet, providing support for hardware and software, thanks to a synergy between automation, business intelligence and technological implementation. It extends to new openings, technological refurbishment, the periodic verification of fiscal products and the management of extra services (transfers, changes of company name, location changes and closures).

From augmented reality to hospitality services: gaming beyond gaming to build customer loyalty

Today, the world of gaming and betting, in all its forms, has become a place where diverse needs intersect: people seek recreation but also require catering and entertainment services. With its long experience in the world of hospitality, Custom presents a series of solutions at ICE 2020 that are becoming central to the world of gaming, lotteries and betting. POS systems, mobile devices, printers and software are now becoming cross-sectoral and allow gaming industry leaders to have a single contact for all their needs. An example is POSA (the Android Point-of-Sale system): an Android App that meets all cash point needs in a smart, fast and reliable way. Developed for the hospitality world, this app allows you to manage bookings, employees and customers, with a range of customisable features. However, Custom goes beyond this and is presenting a series of technologies in London designed to enhance the consumer experience through Augmented Reality: information content, video, game statistics, advertising and everything else that creativity can suggest. This technology ecosystem, which mixes real and virtual, becomes a major development driver, facilitating the work of operators on the one hand, and, on the other, offering greater engagement and retention of end consumers.

Integrated Data Intelligence to optimise productivity and workflow

Data is now the new petrol. Companies that can manage data smartly and effectively have a major competitive advantage. For this reason, Custom has developed a program with Data Intelligence solutions that makes the operator’s task smooth and agile, while, at the same time, providing an enjoyable experience for the end consumer. Faster payments, dedicated services, data storage and profiling: all these activities can optimise the entire workflow, with genuine benefits in terms of productivity and return on investment. Custom’s capacity to integrate hardware, software and services is a key element, particularly when it comes to Data Intelligence: each of the Italian company’s solutions, created in a synergistic perspective, where software features determine the form of the hardware, which, in turn, is natively organised to implement data-driven operations.

Leading online slot developer announces launch of Snoop’s High Rollers which will go live exclusively with popular crypto sportsbook and casino



Reading Time: 2 minutes


Gaming Corps, a publicly listed game development company based in Sweden, has signed a major deal that will see it launch an exclusive slot game in collaboration with rap legend, Snoop Dogg. The game will drop exclusively on Roobet, the online casino where Snoop Dogg is a brand ambassador. 

Snoop Dogg needs no introduction. He made his music industry debut when he appeared on Dr Dre’s 1992 album, The Chronic, and has since sold more than 50 million albums worldwide. He’s also made several movie and TV show appearances, making him one of the most iconic artists of all time.

The game is “Snoop’s High Rollers” and allows players to experience what it’s like to live life as a music legend. The soundtrack is inspired by Snoop’s early and later works and the main man has also narrated parts of the game to really bring it to life.

Snoop has also played a part in creating the gameplay, hand-picking mechanics and bonus features to really put his stamp on the game. Roobet has also got in on the action, leading to a unique online slot that will soar to the top of the charts among its players.

Snoop’s High Rollers will make its debut exclusively on Roobet, the crypto casino and sportsbook that has taken the market by storm since its launch in 2019. The casino’s team has put a comprehensive marketing strategy behind the game with plans to use it to drive new customer acquisition at scale.

“It is with much pride that we at Gaming Corps have had the chance to develop a game in close collaboration with Snoop Dogg and Roobet, where we have combined our unique gaming perspective with Snoop Dogg’s unparalleled style and charisma,” Juha Kauppinen, Gaming Corps CEO, said:-

“Our vision is to offer players an experience where music, culture and gaming merge into something extraordinary. Our close collaboration with Roobet has enabled us to do the impossible, namely world-class marketing, game release is planned for 20 of April. We’re thrilled, and discussions are already underway about several game concepts!”

Anthony Brennan, Head of Partnerships at Roobet, added: “Roobet loves pushing the envelope and never flinches at an opportunity to bring iGaming and pop culture together. Snoop loves his game, we love the game, and we’ve been delighted at the experience of building something that feels fresh in an industry full of remixes.

“We can’t say enough nice things about the Gaming Corps team, and we’re excited to hear what the gaming community has to say!”

IDnow Bridges the AI-human Divide with New Expert-led Video Verification Solution



Reading Time: 2 minutes


IDnow, a leading identity verification provider in Europe, has unveiled VideoIdent Flex, a new version of its expert-led video verification service that blends advanced AI technology with human interaction. The human-based video call solution, supported by AI, has been designed and built to boost customer conversion rates, reduce rising fraud attempts, increase inclusivity, and tackle an array of complex online verification scenarios, while offering a high-end service experience to end customers.

The company’s original expert-led product, VideoIdent, has been a cornerstone in identity verification for over a decade, serving the strictest requirements in highly regulated industries across Europe. VideoIdent Flex, re-engineered specifically for the UK market, represents a significant evolution, addressing the growing challenges of identity fraud, compliance related to Know-Your-Customer (KYC) and Anti-Money Laundering (AML) processes and ensuring fair access and inclusivity in today’s digital world outside of fully automated processes.

As remote identity verification becomes more crucial yet more challenging, VideoIdent Flex combines high-quality live video identity verification with hundreds of trained verification experts, thus ensuring that genuine customers gain equal access to digital services while effectively deterring fraudsters and money mules. Unlike fully automated solutions based on document liveness and biometric liveness features, this human-machine collaboration not only boosts onboarding rates and prevents fraud but also strengthens trust and confidence in both end users and organisations. VideoIdent Flex can also serve as a fallback service in case a fully automated solution fails.

Bertrand Bouteloup, Chief Commercial Officer at IDnow, said: “VideoIdent Flex marks a groundbreaking advancement in identity verification, merging AI-based technology with human intuition. In a landscape of evolving fraud tactics and steady UK bank branch closures, our solution draws on our decade’s worth of video verification experience and fraud insights, empowering UK businesses to maintain a competitive edge by offering a white glove service for VIP onboarding. With its unique combination of KYC-compliant identity verification, real-time fraud prevention solutions, and expert support, VideoIdent Flex is a powerful tool for the UK market.”

Whereas previously firms may have found video identification solutions to be excessive for their compliance requirement or out of reach due to costs, VideoIdent Flex opens up this option by customising checks as required by the respective regulatory bodies in financial services, mobility, telecommunications or gaming, to offer a streamlined solution fit for every industry and geography.

Bouteloup added: “Identity verification is incredibly nuanced; it’s as intricate as we are as human beings. This really compounds the importance of adopting a hybrid approach to identity – capitalising on the dual benefits of advanced technology when combined with human knowledge and awareness of social cues. With bank branches in the UK closing down, especially in the countryside, and interactions becoming more and more digital, our solution offers a means to maintain a human relationship between businesses and their end customers, no matter their age, disability or neurodiversity.

“VideoIdent Flex is designed from the ground up for organisations that cannot depend on a one-size-fits-all approach to ensuring their customers are who they say they are. In a world where fraud is consistently increasing, our video capability paired with our experts adds a powerful layer of security, especially for those businesses and customers that require a face-to-face interaction.”
