A panel of independent judges applauded RSI for clearly demonstrating market penetration and growth of its mobile user audience.  The judges commented that: “By owning, operating and creating the technology needed to make mobile gaming seamless, Rush Street Interactive (PlaySugarHouse.com) has designed a company and a strategy that will undoubtedly create further growth.”

“This award is one of the most respected in the industry,” said Richard Schwartz, President of Rush Street Interactive. “We’ve taken a differentiated and innovative approach at PlaySugarHouse.com to deliver a totally unique mobile user experience.   The fact that we ended 2018 with a mobile penetration rate over 90% validates that our mobile strategy is working.”

Since launching less than three years ago, PlaySugarHouse.com Sportsbook & Online Casino has achieved exceptional revenue growth and is a significant contributor to March’s record breaking numbers, released earlier today by the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement.

“Despite the New Jersey online casino and sportsbook market growing by a staggering 43.7% month over month, PlaySugarHouse.com still exceeded this market’s growth rate in March,” Schwartz added.

“The mobile operator of the year win, along with our record breaking financial performance in March, are testaments that our interactive teams, who deserve all the credit, are driving iGaming innovation and making us a respected leader in the emerging regulated industry in the Americas,” said Schwartz.  “Our strategy from the start has been to be the first and the best to offer a large variety of exciting and engaging sports betting and casino experiences.”

PlaySugarHouse.com’s sportsbook mobile platform is deeply integrated and operationalized to work seamlessly with Kambi’s sportsbook, which also was recognized by being named the Sportsbook Platform Provider of the year. The combination of Rush Street Interactive’s in-house mobile product & iGaming platform, leveraging the Kambi sports solution, makes for a winning combination as being proven in the New Jersey market.

The EGR North America Awards 2019 were announced at a reception in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

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.
