RISQ, the leaders in insurance-backed acquisition and retention services for the igaming industry, have announced their first £25m jackpot winner via the sweepstake and contests platform, Happy Pay.

The lucky winner of this life-changing prize entered the free-to-play prize draw via one of Happy Pay’s popular portfolio of promotional jackpot products, available across a range of assorted ecommerce websites.

Since partnering with RISQ over a year ago, Happy Pay’s clients have reported significant boosts in daily entrants due to increased jackpot sizes, whose levels RISQ has escalated by over 150%, proving their worth as a driver of traffic, player-engagement and sales across all platforms and devices.

RISQ’s insurance-backed solution enables the creation of non-networked prizes across a wide range of game types and channels.

These flexible solutions offer operators and platform-providers access to some of the biggest payouts in the industry.

RISQ’s B2B Director, Tom Mitchell, said the record £25m jackpot provided ready proof of RISQ’s unique ability to pay out promptly on even the biggest industry jackpots, thanks to their contracts with A-rated reinsurers.

Mitchell said: “As volumes increase on our insurance platform (iGiP), jackpot payouts will become more and more frequent. Ultimately, in the event of any jackpot win, our clients rely on our ability to pay out quickly and with no hidden complications.

“I certainly feel that we have proven this capacity with Happy Pay. As we grow and develop, our goal is for the platform to give clients access to any winnings within 24 hours. By continuing to improve our technology, processes and reinsurance contracts, I believe that this is a realistic target.”

When it comes to international exhibitions there are certain exhibiting companies that immediately catch attendee´s attention with their promo. As usually, Endorphina was one of these companies during the main igaming event of the year – ICE London.

What was Endorphina´s booth all about then?

This time, Endorphina wasn´t playing any games and brought in a guest star from the US – Erik Cavanaugh, who has already won the hearts of millions with his passion for dancing and challenging stereotypes of a dancer’s body. Erik’s been viewed over 90 million times worldwide and his fame is still rising. His videos and interviews were published by major publications like People Magazine, The Today Show, Good Morning America, Forbes, and more. During each performance there was a crowd watching Erik, cheering and admiring his graceful moves. Trust us, it was an impeccable performance!

We had a chance to ask Erik about his feelings regarding the event:

“I am so excited to be performing with Endorphina at ICE London and getting to show to the attendees that Dancers Come In All Sizes! This is my first time ever performing live in Europe and I couldn’t be more excited!”

Endorphina´s stand was buzzing all the time. Many people came to try their luck in Wheel of Fortune to win a huge collection of prizes – from witty branded cans, a very own Endorphina cookbook or custom Endorphina slides and branded socks. Provider´s slides and socks with designs of successful game titles were the most popular prizes and made more than one attendee of the show come back to their stand for a second chance to win it. And the rest was exploring provider´s latest games and business opportunities.

Did you witness the guy who impressed America with his charm and talent at the show? Or did you win some of the branded goods? Let us know!
