CEO Derek Stevens Welcomes Bettors to First-Ever Circa Sports Venue at Golden Gate Hotel & Casino

 

Las Vegas casino owner and developer Derek Stevens officially launched his new sports betting venture, Circa Sports, this weekend within the all-new sportsbook at Golden Gate Hotel & Casino.

Stevens kicked off the opening with the introduction of a $1.5 million pro football contest, a mobile app and a ceremonial first bet with many of the city’s best bookmakers.

“The bell has rung, and we are thrilled to be taking bets of all kinds with Circa Sports,” said Stevens. “We intend to bring that old-school Las Vegas vibe to the floor, so there was no better place to bring this to life than in Las Vegas’ most historic hotel, Golden Gate.”

Steven’s “guests first” philosophy will be seen throughout Circa Sports. Led by a team featuring the finest oddsmakers in the city, Circa Sports will bring top-notch customer service to visitors, appealing to betting novices and sharps alike. In addition, the Circa Sports mobile app is now available to add convenience to what will be the most competitive wagering menu – from daily games and events to futures – in Las Vegas.

To celebrate the camaraderie of the Las Vegas sports betting community, Stevens invited a variety of Las Vegas’ top bookmakers to place the first official bets at Golden Gate on opening day. This included an exciting ribbon cutting presentation featuring part of the Circa Sports executive team, including Vice President of Operations Mike Palm and Sportsbook Director Matt Metcalf.

The season-long Circa Sports Million Pro Football Contest will offer $1.5 million in prizes, including a $1 million payout for the champion. All players must be at least 21 years of age and can enter the statewide contest by registering at Golden Gate and paying a $1,000 entry fee. Participants can enter now until through September 7.

Designed by MOSER Architecture Studio, the 1,297-square-foot sportsbook at Golden Gate features a state-of-the-art video wall, LED boards displaying betting odds and two betting kiosks. On June 19, Circa Sports will introduce a satellite program at sister property the D Las Vegas. Its next stop will be at the highly anticipated multi-level, stadium-style sportsbook at Circa Resort & Casino in December 2020.

QTech Games Targets Indian Market with New Recruitment Drive

QTech Games Targets Indian Market with New Recruitment DriveReading Time: 2 minutes

 

QTech Games has announced further expansion plans across emerging markets in Asia, featuring a new recruitment drive around India’s breakout territory.

As the fastest-growing games distributor in Asia, QTech Games is logically broadening its reach into the world’s second-most populous country, where it is now taking applications from experienced sales people with knowledge of the India market.

The proven success of QTech Games’ new partnership model is opening up new territories for operators looking to secure a foothold in the Asian market via QTech Games’ local expertise and unique infrastructure.

“At QTech Games, we’re currently seeing the greatest growth in India. That’s no surprise considering a ramping population of 1.3 billion, near universal access to 4G, and dropping costs for smartphones and the internet, even in the backwaters. Consequently, India’s online sector has welcomed a raft of acquisitions this year, as operators plant their flags in the sand ahead of the expected boom. Accordingly, QTech Games is now offering operators the chance to become the integration partner for new content / studios, removing the hassle of integrations in order that internal tech teams can concentrate on value-added processes. In fact, our company axiom is simply: one seamless integration for all the emerging and growth markets,” Markus Nasholm, CEO of QTech Games said.

“A flexible platform and an open mind are the only things you must be sure to take with you, wherever you’re travelling across this ever-changing landscape – and, at QTech, our market-leading platform has you securely packed for all the best, localized games – majoring in mobile. Asian operators aren’t too bothered if you have the ‘traditional’ game providers. That said, if you don’t have the Fish game in China, there’s a 0% probability of becoming successful. And it’s a similar story with the Andar Bahar card game in India, where the eyes of the industry are converging right now. As a result, we’re already on a strong recruitment drive to hire the best and brightest minds as our tentacles extend into ever more culturally-specific and diverse territories. So, if you’re an expert with relevant experience in the territory, we’d love to hear from you,” Markus Nasholm added.

Slovak Authorities Charges Tipos CEO with Money Laundering Case

Slovak Authorities Charges Tipos CEO with Money Laundering CaseReading Time: < 1 minute

 

Slovak authorities have charged two employees of the Tipos national lottery on charges of violating their duties and money laundering. The CEO of the lottery, Ján Barczi, and the head of the IT department, Miloš Prelec, were charged.

Both are accused of “violating their duties when managing entrusted property and of money laundering,” Slovakian police wrote on their Facebook page.

The National Criminal Agency of Slovakia (NAKA) is investigating Tipos for allegedly allowing money to pass from gambling accounts to private bank accounts without placing any gambling bets.

The national gambling company has been under investigation by NAKA for more than a year. In April 2018, the company closed 142 player accounts on suspicion of being part of a money laundering scheme. Tipos said at the time about 260,000 euros was laundered, though authorities continue to investigate whether the number is larger.

Thirty NAKA members participated in last month’s raid on Tipos following a tip about the scheme from a whistleblower. NAKA was looking for evidence of the alleged money laundering.
