BtoBet’s World Cup Specials: Strategies For Player Acquisition And RetentionReading Time: 2 minutes

Boasting a high level of interest from bookmakers, BtoBet’s Director of the Sports Department, Davide Ruggeri, is of the opinion that the company’s products unveiled and offered to operators prior to the World Cup that will shortly kick off in Russia will deliver a new standard of sports betting, providing the players with distinct options based on varying factors.

Which will be the four nations to play in the Semi-Finals stage? Who will be the referee in charge of the Final? Will it rain? Will a particular team win or lose all the matches at group stage? Will there be a field invasion during the manifestation? How many matches will end goalless in the group stages? Who will be the beast goalie, defender, assist man, or attacker of the tournament?

These are just a few of the infinite variety of bets that BtoBet’s World Cup 2018 Specials will present to the player, with Ruggeri describing the products as “the first step to avoid the usual high churn rate that sees players moving away from betting over the World Cup period”.

Ruggeri stressed that operators should see the World Cup event as a massive opportunity for player acquisition but most importantly for player retention. “It is much less expensive to retain existing customers than it is to acquire new customers. And this can only be achieved by providing them with a tailored offer to catch their attention. It means treating these players as VIP players with the goal to inspire a positive experience from their side.

MGA IMF spotlights Malta’s work in the gaming sectorReading Time: 1 minute

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) praised Malta’s work in the gaming sector and labelled it as exceptional.

It’s well known by now that Malta is one of the best places in europe when it comes to monitoring the new trends, working to set the best legislation but also for it’s pro-business approach.

The international monetary entity highlighted Malta’s dedication to strengthen the gaming sector by reinforcing the existing legislation that regulates the gambling industry and by implementing the EU Anti-Money Laundering directive.

Earlier this month, the Maltese Parliament approved new gaming provisions that seek to heighten the jurisdictional profile of Malta from a regulatory perspective by strengthening the Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) supervisory role. The approval of the third and final reading of the new Gaming Act also wants to strengthen the compliance and enforcement functions to better achieve the regulatory objectives, in line with concurrent developments relating to anti-money laundering and combating the funding of terrorism.

The Maltese Government will see that the Malta Gaming Authority, as the regulator of the gaming industry, has all the resources to carry on her work effectively and will ultimately lead in further protection to customers and will base its work on concrete evidence.
