Pioneering provider claims trophy for fourth year in a row

Gaming solutions supplier Yggdrasil has won the Innovator of the Year award for an unprecedented fourth consecutive year at the prestigious International Gaming Awards (IGAs) held at London’s Savoy Hotel.

The award recognises the year’s best-in-class supplier that has broken boundaries to disrupt the industry with ground-breaking innovation.

Yggdrasil has achieved this with the launch of its game-changing Publishing division, offering customers ‘the keys to its kingdom’ with all tools they need to build, create and offer a complete B2B gaming business.

It is also introducing a series of transformative game mechanics including Splitz™, offering never-before-seen win potential. Aztec-themed Temple Stacks: Splitz™ was launched in January this year giving players the first view of Yggdrasil’s revolutionary mechanic, which transforms a 3×5 slot grid into reels of infinite potential, offering up to 248,832 pay ways.

As part of Yggdrasil’s new strategic approach, it is franchising its entire business, from its current and future content portfolio and industry-leading gamification to its advanced platform technology and new GATI (Game Adaption Tools & Interface) product. This will enable partners to instantly create their own unique, end-to-end iGaming offering supported by, and in partnership with, Yggdrasil Publishing.

Future customers will be able to license any, or all elements, of Yggdrasil’s gaming eco-system with all technology, functions and content already proven after being live in the most developed iGaming markets for the last six years.

The three core value propositions for the Publishing arm will be: YG Franchise (platform IP licensing) YG Masters (game development and distribution program), and YG Game IP (game IP licensing).

Fredrik Elmqvist, CEO, Yggdrasil, said: “Winning this award for a record fourth year in row is an amazing achievement. It is testament to the huge effort the entire Yggdrasil team has put in to launch the game-changing Yggdrasil Publishing and the investment we put into slot innovation and new mechanics.

This is a ground-breaking global licensing business that significantly changes our and the industry’s approach to content creation, publishing and distribution. In a very short space of time we have become well-known for our highly innovative online gaming content, platform and software solutions but we are now taking this to another level altogether.”

GVC Appoints Dr. Mark Griffiths as Special Adviser on Player Protection and Safer Gambling Issues

GVC Holdings has appointed online gambling addiction specialist Dr. Mark Griffiths as a special adviser on player protection and safer gambling issues.

Dr. Mark Griffiths, Distinguished Professor of Behavioural Addiction and Psychology at Nottingham Trent University, will audit GVC’s policies and processes on responsible gaming and suggest improvements. He was a part of the World Health Organisation working party that formally recognised “gaming disorder” as a psychological condition last year.

Last week, GVC’s CEO Shay Segev set out his direction for the Group, focusing on two strategic pillars of sustainability and growth, underpinned by the Group’s industry-leading proprietary technology. This included a commitment, under the new Sustainability Charter, to continue to lead the industry on responsible gambling.

A core part of this is the launch of the Advanced Responsibility & Care (ARC) programme. The ARC programme encompasses scientific analysis of player behaviour to inform the enhancement of player protections. GVC’s data scientists then derive predictive models and analytics to score players for potential indicators of protection. Each player has a dynamic risk rating aligned to their play patterns and other criteria to enable real-time monitoring and analysis tools to enable early interventions to improve player protection.

Professor Griffiths’ work will be instrumental in delivering ARC. He will work with the business to apply findings from the behaviours of over 160 million players on GVC’s global database to help develop stronger rules, measures and interventions. He will also draw on GVC’s existing multi-million-dollar partnership with Harvard Medical School, now two years into a five-year study into addiction.

BtoBet’s Latest Industry Report Highlights Requirement to Increase Player Lifetime Value
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

BtoBet has released its latest industry report “A product-centric vs player-centric approach; How player requirements are reshaping the iGaming landscape.” The report highlights the requirement to increase player lifetime value.

The report seeks to address how the European market is reacting to an increased level of player requirements, how a tailored UX can be important for operators as they seek to retain customer loyalty, and also how a product-centric approach could be detrimental for licensees in the iGaming industry.

The report also emphasises how a tailored experience will result in an increase for each player’s Lifetime Value (LTV), whilst guiding operators on key scenarios that they must address in order to gain a competitive advantage on their competition, amongst which:

  • How they are responding to the player-driven market;
  • How well do they know their customers;
  • How loyal are their customers;
  • Whether they have the technological means to provide a tailored betting experience in a truly interlinked omnichannel environment capable to adapt and include the latest technological and behavioural traits.
