Fire & Ice is set for Wednesday 6th February 2019 and this year it will Rock You!

Are you ready to Rock? Fire & Ice, the iGaming industry’s grandest and most elaborate social gathering, returns on Wednesday 6th February 2019 and brings with it a night of Glam Metal Rock and Roll. The event will channel the rock culture of the 80’s glam metal rock scene and turn you into a Hollywood Vampire.

With the help of more than 100 performers, musicians, artists, designers, creatives and extras, the night will celebrate the spirit of rock and roll. An interactive theater, a modern circus, an insane club night, it’s all of these, but most importantly it’s a chance to form relationships within the industry outside the formality of a conference or meeting room.

The industry is invited to join the biggest names in iGaming, who will be hosting guests in the stage-side VIP area. All VIP table hosts and guests are treated to VIP entrance, their private area, drinks and more fun, entertainment and excitement than any other venue in town. Anyone looking to make an impression will be happy to hear that there are still a few tables and sponsorships available.

Michael CaselliFire & Ice co-organiser, added: “We need this event as much as the industry needs it. This is our creative outlet and we take great pride in bringing our craziest ideas to life.  The end result is incredible, and we can’t wait to welcome guests on the night.”

Jodie ThindFire & Ice co-organiser, said: “Fire & Ice has become an iGaming industry institution and I am proud to be a part of the team that creates such an incredible, memorable show each year. I look forward to welcoming 1500+ guests and helping them party like a rock star!”

Fire & Ice Rocks takes place at the Troxy in London on Wednesday 6th February 2019. Doors open at 9pm and the Main stage performance commences at 10:30pm.

OKTO Group, the financial technology provider specialising in digital payment and player engagement applications, is set to exhibit its next-generation suite of products and services at next month’s EArena Expo in Bucharest, Romania.

The event, which takes place from the 3rd to the 5th September, will see OKTO’s commercial team showcasing the company’s mobile-centric payment solution for gaming at stand #422, demonstrating how operators can drive player engagement by bridging the gap between the payment and retail experience.

Building on the success of its digital banking, mobile payment and retail products in Europe, the Athens-based fintech firm is set to hit the ground running with its one-of-a kind gaming solutions, while having recently appointed industry veteran Simon Dorsen to lead the charge.

OKTO’s payment products are focussed on harnessing the mobile-based payments revolution, while digitising betting processes to provide a seamless journey across multiple player channels, offering operators add-on loyalty and promotional functions that deliver a player-retaining service.

With experience in directly operating an established network of 5,000 points of sale across multiple jurisdictions and processing transactions reaching up to €1 billion, the payment service provider is well positioned for continuing its rapid growth in the region.

Commenting on their plans for Eastern Europe’s unique market environment, Simon Dorsen, Director of Gaming at OKTO, said:

“Eastern Europe is a major focus for us, with a tech-savvy population that are proving to be quick adopters of innovations in mobile technology. There is real appetite for OKTO’s fully digital experience, which we have tailored to tackle the niche challenges of this promising market. 

“We look forward to meeting with local operators at EArena to showcase how our innovative solutions not only reduce cash handling costs for operators, but also speed up the flow of transactions and deliver a better player experience. The next wave of payments disruption is here – and we’re glad to be leading the charge.”

SportPesa Gears Up for Legal Battle with Kenyan Government

Sports betting platform SportPesa has geared up for a protracted legal battle with the Kenyan government. The operator told that the government was deliberately politicising a dispute over tax to interfere with its Kenyan operations. This has left SportPesa unable to process mobile payments, prompting it to cancel all sports sponsorship agreements in the country.

On 1 July, Kenya’s gambling regulator (BCLB), declined to renew the licence applications of SportPesa and 26 other companies. The BCLB claimed it was owed a total of KES60.56bn in unpaid taxes, claiming that Kenya’s Gaming Bill states that the country’s 20% tax on winnings applies to both profit and to the bettor’s original stake.

“SportPesa is fully tax compliant in all of the markets in which we operate. We have been recognised by the KRA as such, receiving tax compliance awards in 2016, 2017 and 2018,” a SportPesa spokesman said.

The SportPesa spokesman said that the company secured a High Court order that overruled the regulator and prevented the authorities from suspending payment services and interfering with the company. However, on 10 July, the state ordered the telecoms company Safaricom to block banking services to the 27 companies. On 22 July, SportPesa opted to take legal action against the regulator to overturn the blocking order. The High Court is currently considering whether the authorities acted illegally in blocking access to customers’ accounts.

On 9 August, Sportpesa announced it was suspending all of its sports sponsorships in the country. On 11 August, SportPesa was also named in a Sunday Times investigation into the advertising of betting to children in Kenya. However, a SportPesa spokesman denied the operator was deliberately targeting minors.

“SportPesa takes its commitment to ensuring responsible gaming in Kenya extremely seriously. We do not advertise to children and are compliant with all advertising regulation in every market we operate in,” the spokesman said.
