Betfred faces legal action over voided £1.7m payout

first_img Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter 22nd November 2018 | By contenteditor Betfred is embroiled in a legal battle with one of its UK customers after voiding an apparent online jackpot win of  £1.7m (€1.9m/$2.2m). Andrew Green of North Hykeham, Lincolnshire won the jackpot prize while playing the Playtech title Frankie Dettori’s Magic Seven in January this year. Green said he confirmed the win via a phone call with Betfred, after which he spent more than £1,000 celebrating with family and friends. Days later, however, Betfred contacted Green to inform him that the game had suffered a software malfunction and no legitimate jackpot win had occurred, meaning he would not be receiving a payout. According to the BBC, Green said he had been playing the game for six hours before he won the jackpot, having started out with £100 in his account. “Even if there was a malfunction that is not my fault – all I could do was press a button,” he said. Green’s solicitor also said Betfred refused to produce evidence of the reported glitch, despite repeated requests to do so. A preliminary hearing on the case took place in the High Court earlier this week. A Betfred spokesperson said in a statement: “Unfortunately, and as Mr Green is aware, a new game release… suffered a software malfunction in January this year and no legitimate jackpot win occurred. “Given that Mr Green is currently exploring his legal options, it would be inappropriate for us to comment further.” The case continues.Image: George Hodan Topics: Finance Legal & compliance Bookmaker has blamed a software malfunction for the error  Finance AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Tags: Online Gambling Betfred faces legal action over voided £1.7m payout Regions: UK & Ireland Email Addresslast_img read more

GiG hails investment drive as revenue climbs in 2018

first_img Tags: Online Gambling Gaming Innovation Group (GiG) has reported a 26% year-on-year increase in revenue for 2018, saying it was reaping the benefits of the £16m invested in technology and product development over the year. 11th February 2019 | By contenteditor Finance GiG hails investment drive as revenue climbs in 2018 Gaming Innovation Group (GiG) has reported a 26% year-on-year increase in revenue for 2018, saying it was reaping the benefits of the £16m invested in technology and product development over the year.Operating revenue for the 12 months ended December 31, 2018 amounted to €151.4m, up from €120.4m in 2017.EBITDA was also up 28% year-on-year to €16.1m. However, when excluding one-off costs incurred during the fourth quarter, this figure stands some €1.8m higher at €18.9m for the full year.“After investing around €16m into tech and product development in 2018, we have now closed the circle and are offering products and services across all major verticals in the iGaming value chain,” GiG CEO Robin Reed said.However this increased investment in its offering contributed to the company posting a post-tax loss of €21.0m for the year, largely resulting from depreciation and amortisation of assets, which incurred an additional €20.0m in costs, and impairment charges of €13.7m. All impairment charges were incurred in Q4, as was €5.4m of depreciation and amortisation-related costs, which saw GiG post a Q4 loss of €16.1m for the three-month period.Looking beyond these costs, Q4 revenue was a record-equalling €39.9m, though this remained flat from Q4 2017, when the record was originally set. This total was up 7% on a quarter-on-quarter basis.Q4 revenue was driven by growth within GiG’s B2C segment where revenue hit an all-time high of €25.8m, up 2% on the same period last year. Media revenue also reached a record €8.7m in the quarter, while in contrast, B2B revenue fell 9% year-on-year to €16.4m in Q4.GiG noted that a further decrease in employee numbers helped cut operating expenses by 8% quarter-on-quarter in the period.EBITDA in the quarter amounted to €5m, down 36% on €7.9m in Q4 of 2017, but this was impacted by the one-off cost of €1.8m. Excluding this, EBIDTA for Q4 totalled €6.9m.However, restructuring in the B2C segment during the quarter impacted EBIT with a non-cash impairment of €13.7m, while“In Q4, we matched our previous all-time-high in revenues and for the full year 2018, we grew revenues and EBITDA with nearly 30% over 2017,” Reed said.“We have started our expansion into regulated markets with big brand partners, and we have launched our online and retail sports betting platform in the US.”Last month, GiG made a number of moves to expand its business into new areas, including securing a vendor registration for affiliate activities in the US state of New Jersey.GiG also confirmed its entrance into the lottery market for the first time after it agreed a long-term partnership with lotto betting start-up MegaLotto.

Svenska Spel to cease online casino advertising

first_img Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Casino & games Svenska Spel to cease online casino advertising 9th April 2019 | By contenteditor Tags: Mobile Online Gambling Slot Machines Sweden’s former gambling monopoly Svenska Spel is to stop advertising its online casino offering for the rest of 2019, over concerns that the vertical could lead to significant increases in problem gambling in the market.The moratorium on advertising will apply across all channels, with the decision reached last week following internal discussions about how the operator can best protect its customers. The operator, which competes against private operators via its Svenska Spel Sport & Casino subsidiary, generated turnover of SEK385m (£31.9m/€37.0m/$41.7m) in the first two months of the regulated market.“Svenska Spel has always pushed the line that all the games in the licensed market risk should be classified based on risk levels, and that stricter rules should apply for the more risky games, both in terms of design and marketing,” the operator’s chief executive, Patrik Hofbauer, said. “By ending advertising for online casino, we are now taking the plunge.”While Hofbauer (pictured) conceded that no form of gambling is entirely without risk, issues associated online casino were especially pronounced.He cited a Swedish Public Health Authority survey on problem gambling and addiction, which suggested that 30% of gaming machine and casino players struggled to manage their gambling. The survey also revealed that 60% of problem gamblers indicated online casino was their preferred method of gambling.“These are facts that we discussed at Svenska Spel last week and that made us put our foot down,” Hofbauer said. “Our online casino advertising already had a restrictive design, but now we have chosen to completely stop advertising for the rest of the year.”Hofbauer said that while the survey suggested overall problem gambling rates had fallen between 2015 – when the last survey was conducted – and 2018, there was a significant increase of those scoring highest on the Problem Gambling Severity Index.“This indicates that those who are already at risk are adversely affected by advertising,” he said. “That is why we are now stopping online casino advertising: Simply because we do not want to attracting at-risk people to the most risky form of play.”He also called on other Swedish licensees to follow Svenska Spel’s lead and stop advertising their services.“If you are serious about taking responsibility, then you should address the problems where the problems exist, even if it impacts revenue in the short term,” Hofbauer said. “In the long term, this is the only sustainable option. It is also the only way we can improve the industry’s reputation.“We would like more gaming companies to join a promotional stop for online casino. It would show that the gaming industry is taking consumer protection seriously.”Svenska Spel’s move comes against a backdrop of an increasingly fractious debate over gambling advertising in the market. The country’s gambling regulator Spelinspektionen has already pledged to crack down against excessive advertising, even issuing retrospective fines to companies it feels have previously promoted their services too aggressively.It also aims to rigidly enforce bonus restrictions, which allow operators to target players with a single promotion upon signing up, with eight pending cases related to such offers.Maria MacDonald of gaming-focused law firm Nordic Gambling last week told iGamingBusiness.com that the Swedish Consumer Ombudsman had also warned operators that self-excluded players were being targeted by gaming advertising.Operators, which are meant to remove any self-excluded player from their marketing databases, were also warned that they would be held responsible for any affiliate marketing for their domains.The industry has moved to address the concerns, with operator associations Spelbranschens Riksförbund (SPER) and Branschföreningen för Onlinespel (BOS) partnering to publish a new code of conduct for members.Image: Svenska Spel Email Address AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Sweden’s former gambling monopoly Svenska Spel is to stop advertising its online casino offering  for the rest of 2019, over concerns that the vertical could lead to significant increases in problem gambling in the market.

Loto Quebec revenue falls in Q3 as key verticals struggle

Gaming establishments (VLTs in bars and bingo halls) brought in $225.6m, down 8.2%, while revenue from lotteries – the largest driver of revenue in Q3 of 2018 – fell 19.5% to $219.2m.Lynne Roiter, president of Loto Quebec, said that the decline in lottery revenue was due mostly to a decline from 2018’s unusually high number of MaxMillions draws, which occur when a jackpot of at least CAD$50m is not won. This lack of large jackpots also led to revenue declines in Q1 and Q2.“On the lottery side, let’s first remember that Lotto Max had offered an exceptionally high number of Maxmillions in 2018-2019,” Roiter said. “The drop in income from this sector was therefore expected.”Read more on iGB North America.
