'We live for the iGaming industry' states EMIRAT AG's COOReading Time: 3 minutes

 

EMIRAT AG, the world’s leading risk management specialist in covering lottery jackpots, is set to take the iGaming sector by storm in July as they bring their promotional proficiency and consumer marketing campaigns expertise to iGB Live! (16 – 19 July 2019 RAI, Amsterdam). The company’s COO Andrea Bargholz underlines the synergy between lottery and iGaming, the rise of Private Lotteries and why iGB Live! is ideally suited for EMIRAT AG’s forward thinking approach to the industry…

iGB Live! Is primarily an iGaming event, how is the EMIRAT AG brand tapping into this market and what are your core aims?
Our company EMIRAT AG lives for the iGaming industry. The fact that we are not only specialized in one field of raffles but individually conceive each promotion, we are the right contact for this. As IGB Live! is one of the most important events in Europe for the Gaming industry we will definitely meet some of our clients to discuss how to grow business together. Our main goal is of course to cooperate with new potential customers. We will draw attention to our booth with an exciting on-site promotion where our potential clients will be entertained and see how easy it could be to address even more clients for their own business.

With regards to lotteries place alongside iGaming, should lotteries be competing for players with casinos and iGaming and if so, how?
Competition is certainly around the world and in many forms. However, in terms of iGaming and lottery, I don’t believe a competitive battle has to exist. The market for casinos and iGaming is so huge and diverse, there is space for everyone. From our point of view, one industry can learn from the other one. There are some players in the market that bundle lotteries to other products, so why can’t they bundle together with iGaming products?

iGB Live!’s conference agenda will investigate the fast rise of Private Lotteries, what do you believe are the benefits of these and how are you working with your client base to promote these?
The advantage is clear: a growing customer base as well as new orders. We support our customers that offer lotteries in different ways and so with Private Lotteries it’s about marketing, communication of high jackpots etc. The exciting thing is you can design individual lotteries so differently that it fits perfectly with the needs of the specific markets. Thus, the player has a wide selection of lottery options. Due to our cooperation with RNG (Random Number Generator) WorldWide it is quite easy to develop new lotteries for our customers. If you look into different countries all over the world you will find many different requirements we can definitely match. We leave no stone unturned!

With your expertise in lottery insurance, how do you see the sector changing in the coming years and how are you looking to tap into this at iGB Live!?
Due to the currently growing number of lottery operators, we expect a lot of development in the international markets. On the one hand, as lottery businesses become more digital and more mobile, the higher the jackpots are the more attention you get and the more clients you will attract. However, at the other end lotteries need to fit to your individual business. So even if you bundle it with other already existing products you need to make sure that the jackpots will be covered as trust is one of the most important values in gaming industry. That’s what we will bring into the game at IGB Live!

Do you feel events such as iGB Live! are essential with regards to expanding the relationship between iGaming and lottery?
IGB Live! is one of the top networking events. In our opinion, this trade show is of great importance, which is why we continue to actively participate in events like this throughout the year to expand our reach in the industry. We offer so many different products in the gaming sector that are essential to so many attendees.
We’re also excited to see where the market goes next. All of our products are customised, so that’s why we enjoy talking about new ideas early. We love to change opinions with market experts and IGB Live! is a perfect place to accomplish that for both iGaming and lottery business.

Andrea Bargholz and the EMIRAT AG team will be showcasing the company’s full portfolio of risk management offerings and marketing campaigns with a unique on-site promotion from Stand S10 at IGB Live! To set up a meeting at the event, please contact +49 (0) 89 / 255 41-0

Nepal Government Introduces New Casino RulesReading Time: 1 minute

 

The Government of Nepal has introduced a set of new rules relating to sharing of information about gamblers, management of assets and monitoring for suspicious activities.

As per the new rules, operators of brick-and-mortar casinos are required to maintain a record of visitors and players at the properties. Gambling venues should also deny access to those who are believed to be involved in suspicious activities.

The new rules mandate that the casinos must inform the government and the Nepal Rastra Bank about wins or losses of more than NPR1 million within a 15-day period. If the gambling venues suspect that a patron uses suspicious money, it has to compile a report and notify the NRB’s Financial Information Unit within a three-day period.

Under the recently adopted rules, operators of gambling venues must submit reports to the Department of Tourism in every four months. The reports must contain information proving that the casinos are not used for money laundering. Properties failing to submit the required reports could face fines of up to NPR50 million.

The newly imposed rules also contain provisions relating to sharing information about customers, casino operators and staff members. If casinos change staff, they must inform the authorities about the changes within a 15-day period.

By completing challenges daily in the Zynga Poker, two lucky players will win seats at a celebrity card game in Southern California, hosted by Garrett himself. Zynga will donate up to $100,000 to the Maximum Hope Foundation, a non-profit organisation founded by Garrett that provides financial stability for parents of children diagnosed with life-limiting conditions.

“What I love about Zynga Poker is that you can practice your game without having to worry about your ‘tells’ or poker table etiquette – it’s just about the cards. I can make a sincere pledge to the winners of this sweepstakes – when you’re at my Home Game, we’ll be playing by these same rules. Check your poker face at the door, and get ready to have some fun,” Brad Garrett said.

“Poker isn’t a game of chance – it’s all about showmanship and skill, and that’s something Brad Garrett has in spades – no matter what he says. We’re proud to bring our players an opportunity to participate in a once-in-a-lifetime poker night, hosted by a legend in comedy and a hero to families in need. Now our players have the opportunity to show off their skills and prove that lady luck plays favorites,” Bernard Kim, Zynga’s President of Publishing said.
