GSA Europe’s Innovation and Growth on Display at London EventReading Time: 2 minutes

 

GSA and GSA Europe are heading to ICE 2019 and will appear on stand NDA-7 at the show, bolstered by a wave of excitement for its projects in the gaming industry and in the European Union.

GSA Europe was specially created to bring more value to and focus on the regional suppliers, manufacturers, online and land-based operators throughout Europe and their unique needs, and GSA Europe’s Managing Director Mark Pace will lead the organization’s presence at ICE.

Pace was recently elected by the Comité Européen de Normalisation (CEN) to lead the creation of a European Union online gaming reporting standard. CEN has established Technical Committee 456 to create this standard in support of online gambling supervision. GSA Europe joined Technical Committee 456 as a Liaison Organization in 2017.

“2018 was an incredible year of standards advancement and for GSA’s growth. Today, companies that supply 70 percent of the global gaming marketplace are or have been involved in GSA, and our award-winning standards are in use around the world, driving the industry to innovation and growth,” Pace said. “That, combined with our involvement in the CEN, makes this a better time than ever to join GSA/GSA Europe.”

Wherever they are located, there is a level of membership for every type of company in the global gaming industry. Join GSA as a member today and work with like-minded companies who are creating the future of standards.

Sweden to Consider Online Casino Advertising BanReading Time: 1 minute

 

Sweden’s government is going to ban advertising by online casinos and other forms of gambling as it seeks to tackle a rise in addiction, sending shares in the sector lower.

At the start of the year, Sweden tightened the rules for gambling firms and called on the industry to put in place a code of conduct to protect vulnerable consumers. But measures have not gone far enough.

“There is scope for the commissioner to recommend a total or partial ban on gambling advertising,” Minister for Public Administration Ardalan Shekarabi said.

The commission’s remit will include looking at whether to treat advertising of online gambling in the same way as adverts for alcohol and tobacco, limits on advertising bonuses, jackpots and free-plays and whether to limit advertising during live sporting events such as football matches.

GambleAware Launches “No Bet Inn” in Liverpool as Part of Bet Regret CampaignReading Time: 1 minute

 

GambleAware has Launched “No Bet Inn” in Liverpool as part of Bet Regret campaign. The Bet Regret campaign aims to give support for the young men aged 16–34 who gamble regularly. New research conducted for GambleAware revealed that 58% of 18–44 year-old male sports bettors agree that they make impulsive bets in the heat of the moment.

“Some of my fondest memories of playing football were with Liverpool, so it was great to have a chat with fellow fans and watch the current team play, and it was genuinely nice to watch a full match in the No Bet Inn without the distraction of a mobile in anyone’s hand. No checking Instagram, no updating Facebook and crucially, no betting in-play or whilst drinking. It’s crazy to see the number of fans placing ill-considered bets and regretting it afterwards, so it was great to remind people to think twice before betting, avoid Bet Regret and just enjoy the game,” Garcia, famous football player said.

Marc Etches, CEO of GambleAware, said: “We created the No Bet Inn as a demonstration of our Bet Regret campaign and to make football fans think hard about their betting habits. At the No Bet Inn, people could enjoy the game and avoid BetRegret. The is one part of a national campaign for safer gambling which launched in February to raise awareness of behaviours that people might not always recognise as impulsive or risky, such as sports betting when drunk, bored or chasing losses.”

Nielsen Releases “Esports Playbook for Brands” 2019Reading Time: 1 minute

 

Nielsen, the US-based global information and measurement company, has released its 2019 “Esports Playbook for Brands.

According to Esports Playbook for Brands, non-gaming brand involvement in esports has increased by 13% over the past year. Mainstream brands outside of traditional video game brands are entering the space.

Nielsen points out that 90% of U.S. esports viewers on Twitch can name at least one non-gaming sponsor; 70% of U.S. Twitch users spend more time engaging with esports than they do with traditional sports.

“Esports fans respect and welcome those brands that embrace what they already love, and get the need for the revenue and exposure that sponsors, distributors, and content creators bring with them,” says Bobby Sharma, founding partner of the Esports advisory firm Electronic Sports Group, in the playbook.

“But they also know when they are being used as test subjects… and that is where things can go awry,” he adds.
