Betsson Group announces that it has become Founding Member of the All-In Diversity project

Betsson Group announces that it has become Founding Member of the All-In Diversity project – an industry-driven initiative to benchmark diversity, equality and inclusion for the global betting and gaming sector.

Lena Nordin, Chief HR Officer at Betsson Group said, “We are an inclusive company and with 1,800 staff members across nine offices, we have the track record to prove it. With 57 nationalities from 5 different continents, 40% women and 60% men, spread across four generations, Betsson Group is indeed a melting pot of different experiences, backgrounds and ideas.

“Partnerships with like-minded partners, such as the All-In Diversity Project, allows us to achieve greater diversity and inclusion not only within our company but also within the wider industry.”

Betsson Group has always been committed to diversity and inclusion and earlier this year, it launched a new internal initiative called DIB, which stands for Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging. The DIB initiative will consist of activities aimed at putting additional attention on this important area.

“At Betsson we cherish the fact that every individual is unique. A focus on Diversity allows us to recognise those individual traits, whilst Inclusion is all about embracing the differences between us. We practice inclusion by ensuring that everyone feels welcomed and respected and this creates a sense of Belonging to the Betsson family,” says Lena.

“Betsson is the kind of company that leads by example and we are pleased to welcome them as Founding Members. They are leaders in so many areas and their approach to Diversity & Inclusion is no different,” says co-founder Kelly Kehn. “Industry collaboration and support is so important when working towards change and this been point is made especially significant during COVID-19. We are happy to be partnered with and supported by Betsson.”

Betsson’s work on its employee experience has already achieved great results. In the latest employee survey, 87% of employees said that they are proud to work at Betsson, whilst 86% said that they would recommend the company as a place to work to their family and friends.

As part of Betsson Group’s efforts in putting the spotlight on diversity both within and outside of the organisation, in February, it established the Women in Betsson (WiBE) network. The aim of this is to create a platform to promote equality and the empowerment of women within the iGaming industry, and where women at Betsson can network and inspire each other.

The continuous effort towards offering the best employee experience has also been recognised by several industry peers. Betsson Group has won the ‘Great Place to Work’ award at the 2020 International Gaming Awards. It also won the ‘Company of the Year’ at the Women in Gaming and Diversity Awards 2019, and ‘Employer of the Year’ at the EGR Operator Awards 2019.

“We do not want to rest on our laurels, and we will continue to look for further ways to be more inclusive and celebrate our differences. Joining forces with the All-In Diversity project is one way how to do this. We believe that together we can make a difference,” concludes Lena.

Spanish gaming company Codere SA has created a new Italian gaming machines distribution unit “Codwin” by merging its subsidiaries FG Slot and Gap Games Italia.

Codere is the majority shareholder in the two existing businesses and won approval from investors to merge the units at a shareholder meeting in April.

Andrea Rigodanzo, former MD of FG Slot, will head up the new company, which Codere hopes will offer savings on operational costs.

Rigodanzo said: “It is an extremely difficult time for the legal gaming sector, in particular for operators of gaming machines. As a result, we have decided to join forces to face the challenges the market is presenting to us. The Covid-19 pandemic arrived in an already difficult context of increased taxation and regulations that put a strain on the sector…

“With Codwin we intend to offer a model of management integration and efficiency that will also represent an incubator for other companies that want to continue operating according to the usual standards of reliability and legality and who have a long-term project to share with us. We are able to support companies that are currently experiencing difficulties and to implement a shared strategy that allows them to face the future with optimism and competence.”

Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

Gaming solutions provider Net Gaming has begun preparations for the regulation of online gambling in the Netherlands, with a view to entering the market as early as possible.

The Dutch parliament had a final saying regarding the secondary legislation related to the Remote Gambling Act. The implementation of the Act will end the long overdue wait for a modern gaming legislation in the Netherlands. The new law is expected to enter into force in Q1 of 2021, which is also when license applications will be accepted for operators.

Net Gaming has chosen to take swift measures to be in the best position to capitalise on the Dutch market at the earliest possible time. The measures include adjustments to the product offering to be compliant on the Dutch market until the new law is entered into force.

The implementation of the Remote Gambling Act in the Netherlands is a step forward for the Dutch market and consumers, as well as a positive development towards locally regulated revenues for Net Gaming.

One such region where Pariplay will be making its debut is in Switzerland, a highly lucrative and prestigious market that uses the ISO certification as their regulation benchmark.

Establishing partnerships with a new base of operators in Switzerland will allow Pariplay to provide access to a repertoire of over 100 inhouse developed casino games, including its latest Spin N’Hit and Stallion Fortunes, as well as extremely popular titles like Wolf Riches and Dragons of the North.

“This accreditation acknowledges our unwavering commitment to compliance and security across our global operations, while also allowing us to continue to expand our reach into newly regulated markets, including Switzerland. We’re very excited at the possibilities this presents as more players get to experience our thrilling games and cutting-edge services, furthering our 2020 strategy of branching out into newly regulated markets on a truly global scale,” Adrian Bailey, MD of Pariplay, said.
