Hot Topic: Gambling and Casino Games via Social Media and Online Technologies at Prague Gaming Summit 2020

Hot discussions about social gambling and how social media is changing the way of prospecting players at Prague Gaming Summit 2020.

 

Lately, more and more gambling operators have been launching social media games on Facebook, Google+, Bebo, and even MySpace in order to reach more players. Up until the social media gaming giant Zynga launched real money poker on Facebook to their U.K. players in early 2014, all of the social gambling apps on social media were free.

According to Facebook’s guidelines, real money gambling on Facebook is only allowed in specific countries with prior authorization from Facebook. Since only a handful of countries actually meet the criteria, it’s likely that the free games and apps are here to stay and will dominate the social gambling market.

Some of the most popular social gambling games and casino apps on Facebook include free slots, free Texas Hold’em poker and free blackjack. You can play by yourself, with your friends, or with strangers.

Social gaming is a $2.7 billion industry, which is saying a lot because an overwhelming majority of the casino games available on Facebook are free casino games that do not require real cash to play. The gambling operators make their money by offering their players’ in-game benefits, currencies, and virtual goods that can be bought with real money or Facebook credits, which are acquired with cold hard cash as well.

Social casinos pull in millions and millions of Facebook users on a daily basis. About 20% of those users (or hundreds of thousands of players in other words) have paid real cash for in-game goods, benefits, and currencies. The market for social gambling is booming, and it’s only getting bigger and bigger, as more and more big names in the gambling industry are joining in on the fun.

Underage mobile gamers have the opportunity to play social casino games using apps like Double Down Casino, Slotomania, and Zynga. A social casino game is free to play and does not offer real money rewards. Still, simulated casino games get children used to rules and habits of gambling, while introducing them to the brands they might use later on.

At the 4th edition of Prague Gaming Summit you have the unique opportunity to hear more about the subject in the “Gambling And Casino Games Via Social Media And Online Technologies” panel discussion which will be joined by Elina Safargulova (Head of Marketing at Slotegrator), Daniele Alfonso (Head of Gaming at iovation) and Jan Urbanec (CEO at Endorphina).

The discussion will be moderated by Zlatan Omerspahić (Head of Legal and Compliance, Data Protection Officer at NSoft Company).

The Hipther team proves that the Meetup concept works exceptionally and announces the launch of the Mini Meetups

 

The European Gaming Q1 Meetup took place on 11 February and has brought together +1500 participants for a full day of learning.

35 industry leaders from the European continent have joined 7-panel discussions and launched into forward-thinking conversations that were highly attended by industry shareholders.

We would like to thank the support of our sponsors: Altenar, Play’n GO, Nordic Gambling, Singular, and All-in Global.

Here are some testimonials left by some of the participants:

Enjoyed first quarterly meetup of 2021, great cut through different markets and operations in the constantly changing gaming environment. Well done!” ~ Marke Räsänen, Head of Affiliates at VIPs Casino Gaming

Long day, well organized and timed, more than helpful and interesting.” ~ Mattia Nicelli, Independent Consultant

“In a short time, a great scope about regulation, how to deal with emergents markets, a link between online and offline (that’s now a key issue as some sports need the offline for the social link), and a rising topic: Responsible gaming” ~ CATHERINE CHAUVIN, Area manager at PMU

“The European Gaming QMeetups keep you up to date on the legislation updates of the past months and upcoming months. A must-attend for gaming industry decision-makers.” ~ Christiaan Bollen, SEO Consultant and Founder at Boljoro

You can view the full recording of the meetup here:

The program has satisfied all content needs for companies interested in updates from the EU/EEA/CIS and Balkan regions.

Some of the panel discussions have created many new ideas that have to be developed, or have to be discussed further. Thus, are creating a series of Mini Meetups that will feature only one panel discussion per edition and allow the participants to engage even deeper into the conversation.

After receiving positive feedback and engaging into organizational discussions, Zoltán Tűndik, Co-Founder and Head of Business at Hipther Agency commented: “We are thrilled to see that our regional meetups are helping the industry engage in forward thinking conversations and are not as tiring as a large conference would be. With such occasions, we can keep the momentum going by also maintaining the quality of the content. During the two Q1 Meetups (Americas + Europe), we had a total of 3000 participants and over 17k viewers on YouTube. We are complementing the Meetup offering by the launch of the Mini Meetup series which will take place monthly and have only one panel discussion that allows participants to engage in the discussion themselves.

Here are some important dates to keep in mind:

  • February 25, 2021 – 10:00 – 12:00 CET – Do-s and don’ts for emerging markets (European Gaming Mini Meetup) – Focus on Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Georgia
