Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Over 485,000 entries in series events

GGPoker reveals details of the recently completed WSOP Super Circuit Series, hosted in partnership with World Series of Poker.

The online poker tournament series ran from May 3 through 31 and consisted of over 500 individual events. Eighteen WSOPC Ring Events headlined the series, each of which awarded a coveted WSOPC Gold Ring to the winning player.

The WSOP Super Circuit Series exceeded operator expectations; the following statistics attest to its popularity:

  • Number of Series Events: 516

  • Total Series Guarantee: $102,365,000

  • Total Series Prizes Awarded: $134,706,274

  • Single Biggest Event Prize Pool: $12,372,500 (WSOPC Ring Event #8: HR Championship $10M GTD)

  • Total Number of Entries: 485,851

  • Largest Number of Entries in a Single Event: 29,357 (WSOPC Ring Event #9: Mini Main Event)

  • Amount Raised for Charity: $177,045 (WSOPC Ring Event #1: COVID-19 Charity Event)

The World Series of Poker is the most recognizable brand name in the poker world, dating from 1970, and its WSOP Circuit tournaments were first held in 2005.

GGPoker’s hosting of the WSOP Super Circuit Series ensured that hundreds of thousands of players dotted throughout the world had an opportunity to play in WSOPC Ring Events, satellites and supporting events; for many this was their first opportunity to experience the thrill of a WSOP tournament.

Much of the headline WSOPC Ring Event action was streamed live on Twitch via GGPoker.TV, which proved a massive hit with poker enthusiasts. This fun, edgy and comedic podcast-style show was hosted by Joe Stapleton and had GGPoker ambassadors such as Daniel ‘DNegs’ Negreanu, ElkY, Felipe Ramos and Fedor Holz drop in to talk viewers through the action. Other well-known poker pros such as Maria Ho, David Williams, Matt Berkey, Jesse Sylvia, Marle Cordeiro and more also featured on GGPoker.TV during the series. All of the streamed action is available via archive videos on the GGPoker.TV channel.

“Over 500 events, more than 485,000 tournament entries and of course over $134 million in prizes awarded – the GGPoker community fully embraced and supported the WSOP Super Circuit Series.” said Jean-Christophe Antoine, Head of Business Development for GGPoker. “It was thrilling to witness all of the action, and to see every single Ring Event guarantee exceeded was something all players could be happy about!”

Ty Stewart, Executive Director of World Series of Poker, added, “The support of the gaming community for the WSOPC on GGPoker was insane. No guarantees were too big. Congratulations to all 18 ring event winners.”

New GGPoker players are eligible to claim the poker room’s Welcome Bonus and automatically join GGPoker’s Fish Buffet loyalty program, spinning for cash prizes each time they reach a new status level. In June 2020, over $2,000,000 in extra prizes will be awarded to GGPoker players via the poker room’s monthly promotions.

It has been a hard and stressful period for some of the companies who battled daily by reaching out to their clients base and asking for feedback via votes to help them climb the charts and be included in the shortlist for the 2020 edition of the Baltic and Scandinavian Gaming Awards (BSG Awards).

During June, the industry had the chance to cast their votes online for their favorite operators, software suppliers, and connected service providers and help them reach the Top 5 for their respective categories.

The online voting closed on the 30th of June at midnight and we are happy to announce that despite the critical period the industry is facing, there have been a total of 9641 votes submitted during the session. There have been many categories in which the number of votes has been at the exact results for 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and even 5th place. All companies who made the shortlist should feel proud of this achievement.

The shortlists for each category can be found below and as mentioned in the statement, the winners will be decided by the attending delegates via final voting session at the third edition of the conference and awards that will be held on the 6th of August in Tallinn at Radisson Blu Hotel Olümpia Tallinn.

FAST TRACK Appoints Dan Morrison as its Commercial Director
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

Malta-based iGaming software provider FAST TRACK has appointed Dan Morrison as its new Commercial Director. He will be spearheading FAST TRACK’s ambitious growth plans.

Morrison has extensive experience in the iGaming sector. After founding ConversionBet, an acquisition and conversion platform developed for iGaming operators, he went on to take the position of Managing Director for iConvert. He has also held a senior commercial role at SaleCycle.

“I am pleased to welcome Dan to the team. It was an obvious move for us given his previous success in launching two iGaming player acquisition companies. He will play an instrumental role in defining our commercial strategy as we move away from our start-up roots and continue to expand our client base,” Simon Lidzén, Co-Founder and CEO of FAST TRACK, said.

“I’m delighted to have been appointed as Commercial Director at a very exciting time for FAST TRACK and I’m looking forward to having the opportunity to make a greater impact on the business and the wider gaming industry,” Dan Morrison said.

“I’m enjoying being part of a progressive and dynamic company with ambitious and extremely talented employees, who are all keen to continue delivering the most powerful player engagement platform to our existing partners as well as developing relationships with new ones,” he added.

APAJO Endorses EGBA’s European Code of Conduct on Responsible Advertising

APAJO Endorses EGBA’s European Code of Conduct on Responsible Advertising
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

Portuguese gambling association APAJO has officially endorsed the European Gaming and Betting Association’s (EGBA) European code of conduct on responsible advertising for online gambling.

APAJO is the fifth national gambling association to endorse the code. APAJO will now promote the code to its members and other online gambling companies in Portugal and encourage them to sign up to it.

EGBA’s code is the first pan-European initiative for online gambling advertising and leads the way in responsible standards for advertising. The code introduces essential consumer protection measures for responsible advertising content, social media and dedicated measures for minor protection.

“APAJO members believe in the highest standards in responsible advertising and already apply these in Portugal through our commitment to the Portuguese gambling regulator’s own advertising code. We support EGBA’s responsible advertising code because common solutions are additionally needed to the many cross-border issues affecting the online gambling sector, such as advertising, data protection, and the fight against money laundering. That’s why EGBA’s pan-European advertising code is so important. The code will raise responsible standards for gambling advertising across many European countries, particularly in those countries where national rules fall short,” Anne-Marie Furtschegger, Secretary-General of APAJO, said.

“We’re pleased with APAJO’s endorsement and its continued commitment to promote responsible gambling advertising in Portugal. Advertising is essential to inform consumers about those companies which are licensed and regulated in their country, but it is also how the sector is visible to the outside world and needs to be responsible. The responsible advertising code is part of EGBA’s commitment to raise standards and make gambling even safer across all European countries. We urge other online gambling associations and companies to join us to make this objective a reality,” Maarten Haijer, Secretary-General of EGBA, said.
