PubCos want to test Game Payment app following successful pilot and dramatic increase in demand for cashless

A total of 30 pub sites drawn from a cross-section of PubCos are eagerly waiting to trial the Game Payment cashless app following its successful technical pilot. Although the pilot was truncated by the prime minister’s March 20 Covid-19 instruction to close all pubs with immediate effect, it nonetheless provided the Game Payment system with a robust test of its technology which it passed with flying colours.

“Obviously we were disappointed at having to curtail the pilot for reasons beyond our control, but we were able to monitor the app in real time and in the field operating successfully on both digital and analogue machines” stated bacta Vice-President, Greg Wood, part of the senior team responsible for bringing Game Payment to market. “I am delighted to confirm that the app showed itself to be extremely robust and the pilot served as a vindication of the technology that lies behind it.”

He added: “We demonstrated the app to a number of leading UK and European operators first at EAG and then at ICE London in February.  Since then and partly as a result of the response to Covid-19, the demand for safe and reliable cashless payment solutions has soared and a significant number of our UK contacts have come back to us asking to test across a sample of their pub estates.

“We have also received lots of interest from AGC operators which has resulted in us bringing forward our development plans for this sector by six months.  As the restrictions on lockdown begin to lift, the team is looking forward to implementing the business development plan secure in the knowledge that the Game Payment app has the strongest of technical foundations.”

The Game Payment app underwent its successful pilot following completion of a payment acquiring agreement with one of the top three UK acquirers. The agreement, which was struck in February, represents the first such deal with a tier 1 UK bank for cashless gaming in pubs and other venues and is a testament of the acquirer’s confidence in Game Payment’s business plan, product credentials and financial structure, as well as the team’s ability to manage a gambling e-wallet.

Propus Partners launches directory of licensed sportsbetting operators

Sportsbetting consultancy Propus Partners is delighted to announce the launch of Bookies Matrix, a new portal that collects together information and data about licensed sportsbetting operators globally.

The site is a new and exhaustive directory of all licensed sportsbetting operators in the world, providing a range of information about each brand including licenses held, relative size in each jurisdiction, platform, data, odds, streaming and virtuals providers, plus details of products, including sports and margins offered.

The service updates continuously with changes such as new market entrants, lapsed licenses, product launches, as well as when new jurisdictions move online.

Mark Israney, partner at Propus Partners, said: “We have been collecting a huge amount of data regarding the sportsbetting industry over the last three years, which has helped our consultancy clients.

“During the recent crisis, we reached out to our network to ask how we could help those businesses at this time and one of the common themes we spotted was the need for intelligence of the industry outside of their local markets. From there, we decided to launch Bookies Matrix as a subscription service.”

As well as providing clients with access to data and analysis, Bookies Matrix will be available for specific research requests from new and existing subscribers.

Marc Thomas, partner at Propus Partners, said: “We are really excited to launch Bookies Matrix and look forward to helping both established and smaller operators and suppliers better understand the marketplace. We think that this service will be invaluable to operators looking to expand into new markets and for suppliers aiming to increase their client base”
