Sportnco sets sights on new worlds after conquering Spain

first_img Sportnco is some way off breaking into the upper tier of the sports betting supplier market, but its chief executive Hervé Schlosser (pictured) argues that he can see a route to the top.Key to Sportnco’s growth is Spain – the Toulouse-based business has performed strongly in France’s European neighbour, and expects the market to become the company’s largest by the end of 2019.It currently works with six partners in Spain, perhaps most notably Italian operator Sisal, preparing to make the first move outside its native market, which Schlosser notes means it powers around a fifth of the sports betting brands in the country.Among its Spanish clients are Casino Gran Madrid, Golden Park and Casino Barcelona, a trio of land-based operators that have entrusted the supplier to facilitate their moves online.There are three key reasons behind Sportnco’s Spanish growth, Schlosser explains.“First, we are able to offer a solution tailor-made to each of our clients’ needs,” he says. “Other providers tend to offer a very commoditised solution, but we tailor the offering for each client so, for example, the Casino Gran Madrid sportsbook looks very different from that of Casino Barcelona.”Boots on the ground He also cites boots on the ground as a key driver of Spanish growth. Sportnco has around a third of its employees, covering marketing, trading and IT, based in Barcelona, and Schlosser believes having native Spanish speakers, as well as being in close proximity to clients, helped build trust.Finally, he says, gaming shows have been key. By having a presence at such events, he says companies have become aware of Sportnco, what it does and what it can provide. This, in turn, helped seal the Sisal deal.“It’s a massive deal and we’re very excited by it,” Schlosser says of the partnership. “It was the result of attending a gaming show in Madrid in November [last year], which is where we met for the first time.” The partnership was agreed before the end of 2019 – “it was among the quickest deal Sportnco has ever signed,” Schlosser notes – and he is quick to note that customer satisfaction also played a key role.“Sisal selected [Spanish iGaming platform provider Tecnalis] to provide its player account management solution, who we already work with, and they were very positive about us,” he says. “Our existing Spanish clients including Casino Gran Madrid and Golden Park were also very positive about working with us.”Customer satisfaction, he says, has been key to Sportnco’s growth.“I’m very proud that we have never lost a client since we launched Sportnco as a B2B operation in 2010 – and that’s something I want to maintain,” Schlosser says. “Our first two clients were NetBet and JOA, and they’re still here.“The level of trust and the perception of your business in this industry is very important, and we’ve always aimed to maintain a high level of customer satisfaction,” he continues. “We don’t want to sign 50 deals a year. Instead we want to grow steadily, maintain the focus on sports betting, the satisfaction of both existing and new clients.”This is underpinned by robust technology, something that he says allows Sportnco to develop bespoke products for clients without limiting scalability.“While we have built our solution so as to maintain bespoke offerings, this is supported by a centralised system, which means we can power an unlimited number of partners,” Schlosser says. “It is built with APIs for the front end and content, and everything is modular.”This goes as far as the odds and data, using feeds from providers such as Sportradar and Sporting Solutions, then customising them for clients. This, Schlosser says, will allow it to grow far beyond its current twenty-strong client base; he aims to have more than 100 customers in the next three years.Yet it’s important to note that Sportnco is still relatively small in terms of revenue; it is private, but publishes limited financial numbers. For 2018 it reported revenue of €5.4m, a sum that represents a 35% year-on-year increase, but one that is dwarfed by rivals in the vertical.New worlds The supplier has already earmarked the US and Latin America as target markets, but is not yet finished with Europe. Licence applications are underway in Sweden and Portugal, with territories such as Switzerland and Italy also being considered.Sportnco has a three-pronged strategy for expanding into new markets, Schlosser says. First and foremost is launching existing clients in new territories, such as ZEBet, which is targeting Portugal.Then there are deals struck through its network of industry contacts and from direct requests from companies seeking out a sportsbook solution – this has seen companies in Argentina and Colombia get in touch – and finally, there are the shows.This will be supported by the launch of a land-based sportsbook solution.“This is a very important step for us, our clients, and our portfolio of services,” Schlosser says. “We were very much focused on mobile and desktop, but from the autumn we will roll out the land-based component with our Spanish casino partners.“Land-based is still very important in growing markets,” he continues. “In these countries the channel still generates the majority of revenue, and while online is growing faster, retail still has to be addressed.”There are two reasons behind this, he says: “First, land-based is a very easy way to play; it’s simple, and no registration requirements. Second, it can deliver margins almost double those of online. In newer markets, when a player is in a betting shop, they’re a captive audience – they’re not going to compare your odds to other sites.”With a deal ready to go in Portugal, pending the necessary regulatory approvals, he also wants to go live in Sweden, and sign up at least one client in both the US and Latin America in 2019.This, he says, would take Schlosser and Sportnco a step closer to his ultimate goal for the business – he wants it to become one of the leading sportsbook technology suppliers worldwide.This is a bold statement, but it’s one that he stands by, pointing out that his declaration a few years ago of wanting to sign up top-tier operators as clients may have seemed equally provocative.Fast forward to 2019, and it’s working with one of Italy’s leading operators. Sportnco is also competing in a tender process to power sports betting for what Schlosser says is “a very big” European operator – one of two final bidders in the process.As ambitious as his proclamations are, he’s done a good job of making sure they come to pass previously. It remains to be seen whether his latest will come to fruition. Sportnco sets sights on new worlds after conquering Spain French sportsbook solutions provider Sportnco started life as the B2B subsidiary of France Pari, but has rapidly outgrown its home market. With Spain set to become the supplier’s largest market by the end of the year, CEO Hervé Schlosser is now targeting expansion in the US and Latin America.

Diary: loot box blinkers, new DCMS head and Swedish switch up

first_img Email Address Topics: Casino & games Legal & compliance People Social gaming Tags: Online Gambling OTB and Betting Shops AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Happy Friday igamers! This week Diary ponders the Gambling Commission’s position on loot boxes, mulls Nicky Morgan’s appointment to the DCMS, considers the latest developments in Sweden and reminds you to vote for the most influential women.Loot boxes blinkers So far the Department for Culture, Media and Sport’s (DCMS) investigation into immersive and addictive technologies has made for some interesting reading. This was particularly the case when an Electronic Arts representative dismissed concerns loot boxes constituted gambling and instead likened them to Kinder Eggs. What was perhaps more surprising was the Gambling Commission’s continued position that loot boxes are not gambling when giving evidence to MPs this week. The Commission has admittedly expressed the view before, most notably back in late 2017 when executive director Tim Miller published a blog post saying as much, albeit mere weeks later telling Sky News it was monitoring the area closely and that the line between gambling and gaming was “increasingly blurry”. In the intervening period, regulators in other jurisdictions have increasingly taken the opposite view on loot boxes – indeed Belgium has banned them – and the Commission itself has put out data that confirms a large number of children are purchasing loot boxes, certainly a much higher number than those taking part in activities the Commission does consider gambling. According to the BBC, Gambling Commission chief executive Neil McArthur told a select committee this week that while there were “significant concerns” about the boxes, they still do not constitute gambling. Apparently, the Commission’s position is now that because there are no authorised sites that allow users to trade loot boxes for cash they don’t have monetary value – despite the fact it’s widely acknowledged skins betting sites allow users to do just that. While technically Gambling Commission programme director Brad Enright may have had a point when he said the video games industry should do more, that doesn’t mean others shouldn’t step in if they don’t. The Gambling Commission has taken some huge steps in the right direction with its harm reduction policies of late, recently stepping up efforts to prevent suicide linked to problem gambling. But with recent research suggesting there’s at least as great a link between loot boxes and problem gambling as there is with suicide, surely it should be stepping up in this area too?All change… or not… at DCMS? Sticking with the DCMS, the gambling industry may have been hoping that the expected cull of cabinet ministers that took place once Boris Johnson was confirmed as new prime minister may have brought someone sympathetic to the industry’s woes. At first glance, the appointment of Nicky Morgan would not appear to offer much hope. After all, Morgan published a widely reported blog post last year lambasting the government for its delay in cutting the maximum FOBT stakes, saying: “These machines have become known as the ‘crack cocaine’ of the gambling world, and we know that they can cause addiction, misery and even death.” On the other hand, last September she said she’d refuse to serve in a cabinet under Johnson and nevertheless this week tweeted her delight at doing so, saying it was “an enormous privilege to take on this  fabulous role” so perhaps she’s open to persuasion on other matters as well. If the last couple of years have shown anything about British politics it’s that pretty much anything can happen.Scandi Noir part three The Diary might be clutching at straws here, but it’s hard not to be intrigued by a Swedish court’s decision to overturn a quartet of decisions by the country’s gambling regulator Spelinspektionen. The authority had deemed four companies worthy of year-long operating licences, prompting the four to lodge appeals. While the court did support the regulator’s decision-making process, it also extended each company’s licence to three-year terms. This could be insignificant, but it suggests that Spelinspektionen will not have everything its own way. Considering a growing number of companies are appealing against enforcement action, most notably Global Gaming, this could be a sign that the Swedish courts will help strike compromises between the industry and the authorities.Meanwhile, elsewhere in Sweden… One LinkedIn post pointed out a somewhat odd quirk in the system. As one wag comments, “as long as no one who is betting on the children who are betting”…Vote for the industry’s most influential women We all know the gambling industry boasts not only the highest paid female boss in the UK but also the highest paid chief exec of any gender, which is certainly something to celebrate. But this industry, like many others, still has a diversity problem and a gender pay gap in favour of men. To help redress the balance, this week we launched our second Most Influential Women Survey and we’re looking for input from the industry on the women who are shaping the igaming space. If you have someone in mind, get voting; if not, see our article from earlier this week for some inspiration.That’s it for this week. See you next week!

He then joined RAiG in May 2019, the new affiliate trade association founded by Better Collective, Oddschecker and the Racing Post.“We are delighted to officially announce Clive joining beBettor’s board of directors,” beBettor chief executive Harry Cott said. We see his experience as the previous CEO of the RGA as invaluable, understanding the concerns of the industry whilst delivering on consumer protection initiatives such as Gamstop.“His knowledge and guidance will be key to us fulfilling our ambitions in helping shape the future of sustainable gambling.”This would help ensure its solutions, such as its Affordability Check product, can be successfully rolled out by operators, it said.Affordability Check is an automated solution that helps gaming businesses tailor interactions to individuals’ circumstances, and ensure players do not spend beyond their means.

Former politician Arana appointed as DGOJ director general

first_img Former politician Mikel Arana has been approved as the next director general of Spanish regulator Dirección General de Ordenación del Juego (DGOJ).Arana was approved by the Council of Ministers after his appointment was proposed by Minister for Consumer Affairs Alberto Garzón.Arana is currently auditor of the Economic Control Office of the Basque Government, a role he took in May 2019, while he also teaches at the University of the Basque Country, from which he graduated in 1996.Arana had previously been a member of the Basque Parliament as a member of the United Left (Izquierda Unida), serving as vice president of the commission for social policies, labor and equality; as well as working for the Basque Department of Housing and Social Affairs.Arana also has a master’s degree in human rights, democracy and globalization from the Open University of Catalonia and an MBA from the Carlos III University in Madrid.Arana succeeds Juan Espinosa García, who served from January 2017 to January 2020, before taking a new role within the Ministry for Consumer Affairs.“From the Dirección General de Ordenación del Juego, we thank Juan Espinosa for the work carried out over the years as well as the leadership in its management, which has managed to position the general direction as one of the international benchmarks in the sector,” DGOJ said. “All the current team of the general management wish him the best in this new stage.”Arana will take charge of the regulator after it has been tasked with enforcing a clampdown on advertising amid growing political opposition to the industry.Article 37 of Royal Decree 11/2020, which was published in Spain’s Official Gazette on 31 March, states that audiovisual communications for gambling operators will only be permitted to broadcast between 1AM and 5AM.While advertising may be permitted during live sports events, the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) and ensuing shutdown of sport has effectively meant gambling advertising is blocked entirely from Spanish television outside of these hours. However, La Liga football clubs are set to return to training this week with the intention of a return in June.This new advertising window was established in the government’s overhaul of gambling marketing regulations, published in February.  Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Former politician Mikel Arana has been approved as the next director general of Spanish regulator Dirección General de Ordenación del Juego (DGOJ).

Veikkaus expects €300m profit hit from Covid-19

first_img Tags: Mobile Online Gambling Slot Machines Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter 21st August 2020 | By contenteditor Regions: Europe Nordics Finland Finnish gambling monopoly operator Veikkaus expects its 2020 profits to fall by as much as €300m, after reporting a 28.1% year-on-year decline in gross revenue and 33.6% drop in profit for the first half of the year. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Topics: Casino & games Finance Slots Finnish gambling monopoly operator Veikkaus expects its 2020 profits to fall by as much as €300m (£268.6m/$354.5m), after reporting a 28.1% year-on-year decline in gross revenue and 33.6% drop in profit for the first half of the year.Gross gaming revenue for the six months to 30 June fell to €607.2m, with Veikkaus estimating that the total was down by around €200m as a result of the disruption caused by novel coronavirus (Covid-19).This saw the operator shutter its gaming arcades, and take its slot machine network offline, from 13 March. It was not until 26 June, four days before the end of the reporting period, that it reopened its arcades, and the slot machines did not go back online until mid-July.This saw the operator’s revenue from casino games falling 46.0% to €243.2m, comprising €137.8m from slots in Veikkaus’ arcade and partner network (down 58.8%) and a €105.4m contribution from other casino games (including online), down 9.1%.Veikkaus noted that online’s share of revenue grew 11.8 percentage points to 44.1% of the half year total. However, it said this was more down to the retail decline than evidence of players migrating online. Online player numbers were up 21% year-on-year over the six months, it noted.Revenue from the operator’s online casino games actually fell marginally year-on-year, to €101.0m.Land based slots’ contribution may decline further, with Veikkaus looking to reduce the number of machines in operation to 10,500 by the end of 2020.This will be followed by the introduction of mandatory registration from January 2021, requiring all players to have an account with the operator in order to gamble. Until this comes into effect, all slot machines will display timers, which notify players after every 15 minutes of play.With the sporting calendar significantly reduced by Covid-19, sports betting revenue across all channels also declined, falling 21.9% to €58.1m. There was evidence of some players shifting from betting on sports to Veikkaus’ toto products, for which revenue grew marginally to €28.9m, though this was all offset by a 38.9% drop in betting’s contribution to €29.1m.For lottery, the decline was more marginal, with H1 revenue down 4.3% at €305.9m. This was largely down to drops in revenue from weekly and daily draw-based games, with only two high jackpots on offer during the half, compared to six in 2019.The business recorded an additional €1.3m in revenue from other sources, and paid €72.8m in lottery taxes, down from €101.1m in the prior year. Veikkaus’ spending on goods and services also declined in H1, falling 22.7% to €80.2m, while personnel cost declined 17.3% to €43.5m.The business incurred €79.2m in other costs, including service fees, deprecation and impairment charges, as well as €100,000 in financial income, for a profit of €332.7m, down 33.6%. Of this total, 53% will be allocated to projects in the arts, science, physical exercise and youth work, with social and health organisations receiving 43%, and equestrian sports and education the remaining 4%.“Like many other operators, Veikkaus had an exceptionally challenging spring,” the operator’s chief financial officer Regina Sippel said. “Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, our contribution to society will fall significantly below previous levels.”Based on estimates from H2 Gambling Capital, Veikkaus said, total gaming revenue generated in Finland in the first half of 2020 – including offshore providers – amounted to approximately €760m, meaning the operator accounted for around 80% of all revenue generated.

German turnover tax bill heads to floor vote after committee approval

In its complaint, the EGBA cited a study from Entain, Flutter and Greentube that warned that the turnover stake tax could see 49% of players using unlicensed operators. It will legalise online casino games in Germany for the first time, albeit with certain restrictions. Topics: Casino & games Legal & compliance Online casino Compliance Legal Regulation “Both online poker and virtual slot machine games will be taxed in the future, as will racing betting, sports betting, public lotteries and draws.

The bill was assigned to the committee last month.In response to the passing of the bill, a spokesperson from the Deutscher Sportwettenverband (DSWV) told iGB is that the whole house vote should be a “formality” however. Although the 5.3% igaming turnover tax has proven controversial, other elements of the treaty have also been challenged- such as restrictions on slots to a €1 per spin stake limit, The German legislature’s (Bundestag) Finance Committee has passed a controversial bill which would set a 5.3% igaming turnover tax under Germany’s new State Treaty on Gambling, the Glücksspielneuregulierungstaatsvetrag (GlüNeuRStv).
