IS THE ONLINE CASINO INDUSTRY BENEFITING DURING SPORTS TOURNAMENT DISRUPTION?

Sports betting enthusiasts are spending more time playing casino games and with all the land-based casino lockdowns, the online casino industry should be benefiting the most. Among the verticals that have seen an increased activity is the online poker industry. While live tournaments are being canceled, the poker players are moving online and resurrecting the online poker industry. But, is this the real case?

The experts of the “IS THE ONLINE CASINO INDUSTRY BENEFITING DURING SPORTS TOURNAMENT DISRUPTION PERIOD” panel discussion, which will be moderated by Andrius Gabnys (Attorney At Law – Gabnys Law Firm), is joined by Beyza Orazova (Head of Sales, iGaming at DIMOCO Carrier Billing), Vadim Potapenko (Head of sales at Slotegrator), Dmitry Starostenkov (CEO at Evenbet Gaming – the leading poker platform provider), Jan Urbanec (CEO at Endorphina), Vladimir Malakchi (Chief Business Development Officer at Evoplay Entertainment), and Nadiya Attard (Director of Sales at Relax Gaming).

THE PAYMENTS INDUSTRY DURING COVID-19

Social distancing is keeping people in their homes and with this comes more online spending. The fiat currencies are doing good during this crisis, however, cryptocurrencies are losing their value fast. We will analyze if there are growths in the transaction volumes and how the spend is increasing during this period but also keeping an eye on cybersecurity.

The discussion will be moderated by Dr. Simon Planzer (Partner at PLANZER LAW) and will be joined by Simon Dorsen (Director of Gaming at OKTO – Gaming Fintech solutions), Vytautas Karalevičius (Co-founder at Bankera), Vasilije Lekovic (Director of Gaming at Trustly), Saulius Racevičius (CEO at ConnectPay), Olga Golikova (Head of Billing at Parimatch), and Marc Riedi (Director, paysafecard Switzerland, a Paysafe Company).

WILL ADVERTISEMENT BANNING STILL BE ENFORCED AFTER COVID-19?

While battling against COVID-19, European countries are spending a huge amount of incomes and once the battle is over, the state budget has to be supplemented. Will legislators consider lifting advertisement bans in order to allow operators and affiliates to relaunch their activities and start running the business, while paying taxes.

Compliance experts and lawyers, regulators are going to join the “WILL ADVERTISEMENT BANNING STILL BE ENFORCED AFTER COVID-19?” panel discussion, which will be moderated by Dr. Joerg Hofmann (Partner at MELCHERS LAW).

The discussion will be joined by Sören Meius (Estonian Ministry of Finance), Morten Ronde (CEO at Danish Online Gambling Association and Managing Partner at Nordic Gambling), Joe Ewens (Managing Editor of GamblingCompliance at VIXIO), Gustaf Hoffstedt (Secretary-General at the Swedish Trade Association for Online Gambling), and Ivan Liashenko (Chief Marketing Officer at Parimatch).

As mentioned above the virtual edition of #MBGS2020VE will be held on the 7th of May and will gather 300 gambling industry professionals who can attend virtually from their internet browser. The gathering will allow virtual delegates to network at virtual tables in the virtual deal room and conduct 1 on 1 meetings with their prospects/clients/partners.

The conference will start at 9:30 AM CET on the 7th of May and the participants will gain access to the platform on 23 April.

London Blockchain Conference: Where iGaming Meets Blockchain Technology

London Blockchain Conference: Where iGaming Meets Blockchain Technology
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

If you are in iGaming, then you will want to attend the London Blockchain Conference at the Queen Elizabeth II Centre (QEII) in the heart of the capital between 31 May 2023 – 2 June 2023.

The iGaming industry is characterised by its rapid growth and tech-savvy platforms; however, it continues to face issues of fairness and trust.

So how does Blockchain help iGaming? Blockchain technology can vastly improve the iGaming industry. With issues like calculating odds, protecting and paying monetary stakes, slow settlement rates and high fees, data protection and digital security player Protection, and Safer Gambling plaguing the industry, Blockchain could be its saviour.

Integrating blockchain technology in iGaming platforms works to alleviate the issues mentioned above. Simultaneously, by establishing transparency and credibility as core components, such offerings enhance the industry’s reputation. The main benefits of using Blockchain include:

  • Enhanced safety and security – Security is essential across all sectors, and iGaming is no different. Blockchain technology offers the iGaming industry enhanced safety and security.
  • Transparency and provable fairness – One of the biggest challenges facing every iGaming business is the question of trust. Blockchain resolves this by demonstrating a detailed, immutable account of all played games, staked bets and accounts, accessible via a public ledger.
  • Speeding up transactions at minimal fees – Players shouldn’t have to wait more than a few seconds for a webpage to load or for a transaction to be processed. Blockchain makes this possible.
  • Privacy and anonymity – Most players want themselves and their accounts to remain anonymous and expect confidentiality. With Blockchain, your transactions are untraceable and use a digital footprint, and keys identify users.
  • Better odds and return to player – ‘The house always win’. Unlike Blockchain, decentralisation and peer-to-peer transactions are two main features; this increases the odds and the total bet amount.
  • Easier auditing processes for regulators – Platform integrations with Blockchain serve operators and regulators in the iGaming. Blockchain was designed to be self-governing.

Join us at the London Blockchain conference and hear from the leading industry figures, including the Malta Gaming Authority representatives, the HM Treasury board, and the head of the Securities and Exchange Commission of the Philippines regarding their country’s Blockchain and Digitization Initiative.

Other key panels of interest include the Future of Blockchain Tokens and Blockchain Venture Capital Investing.

With over 140+ speakers, the three-day conference will be this year’s flagship blockchain expo for enterprise and government and will demonstrate this with insightful and engaging panels, presentations and keynotes.

As the world’s leading technology-focused blockchain event, it aims to provide an avenue to discover the current emerging trends that help bring governments and enterprises onto the blockchain. Attendees can build relationships with influencers, developers and investors in the blockchain space, including iGaming. Attend the London Blockchain Conference and learn how to harness the potential of blockchain technology.
