Richard Cammegh joins CasinoCoin advisory boardReading Time: 2 minutes

 

Richard Cammegh, Managing Director of Cammegh, the world’s leading specialist manufacturer of roulette wheels, integrated roulette systems and gaming digital signage, has joined the advisory board of the CasinoCoin Foundation.

Cammegh becomes the first member of the non-profit CasinoCoin Foundation’s advisory board with a focus on the land-based gaming sector. The appointment marks a strategic commitment from the CasinoCoin Foundation to establish a path for blockchain technology into land-based casinos.

Since it was founded in 1989, Cammegh has built an enviable reputation for designing and manufacturing world-class roulette wheels,  integrated roulette wheel technology, display technology etc, which are delivered alongside a suite of data analysis software.

Cammegh has a global portfolio of premium customers from Las Vegas, London, Monte Carlo through to Macau, Singapore and Melbourne.

Richard Cammegh, Managing Director of Cammegh and CasinoCoin Foundation advisory board member, said: “Cammegh has been the leading roulette provider to the global casino industry for 30 years, and in that time we’ve succeeded by understanding that there is more to the game than a physical wheel. Our products integrate a range of electronic interfaces and data-driven software, and this is where we could see some interesting opportunities to implement blockchain technology.

“So for me it was a case of finding the right blockchain specialist who genuinely understands gaming from an operator’s and player’s perspective, but perhaps even more importantly a partner wishing to stand shoulder to shoulder with gaming regulators the world over. That’s why I’m so excited to join the board of the CasinoCoin Foundation, which supports technology that has the power and experience to truly revolutionise the casino floor.

“I have been a keen watcher of the cryptocurrency and blockchain space for some time now, and I look forward to working closely with the team to help bring this fantastic technology to a global audience in land-based casinos and beyond.”

John Caldwell, Director of Advocacy at the CasinoCoin Foundation, said: “I am thrilled to welcome Richard to the advisory board of the CasinoCoin Foundation, who brings with him unparalleled experience within the land-based casino sector.

“We see a number of particularly exciting use-cases for CasinoCoin in land-based gaming. With the digitisation of the casino floor, CasinoCoin can bring immense value across a range of fields, including immutable data gathering, as well as benefits across identity and payments.”

Cammegh joins other leading gaming execs on the board of advisors at the non-profit CasinoCoin Foundation, which supports the blockchain-powered payment solution CasinoCoin (CSC). These include Gamesys CEO Lee Fenton, Chair of the Digital Isle of Man executive agency Lydia Barbara and Kindred Group’s chief experience officer Britt Boeskov.

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.
