H2: US potential “biggest buzz since PartyGaming IPO”

first_img18th January 2019 | By contenteditor Email Address Tags: Mobile Online Gambling OTB and Betting Shops Slot Machines H2 Gambling Capital raises predictions of market size on the back of new markets opening up and sports betting strength. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter H2: US potential “biggest buzz since PartyGaming IPO” Casino & games H2 Gambling Capital has raised its prediction on the global igaming market’s growth trajectory for the next three years by almost 5%.In the latest dashboard published jointly by H2 and iGamingBusiness.com, the consultancy predicted that interactive igaming gross win will rise to €59.2bn by 2022, up from the €56.5bn it predicted by the same year last January.Simon Holliday, founder at H2, said the repeal of PASPA in May 2018 had created a lot of hype around the market, adding: “the sector has not had as big a buzz since the PartyGaming IPO in 2005”.Despite the excitement about the potential of the US sports betting market, Holliday said China was likely to remain the world’s largest market for the vertical.He also pointed to the legalisation of sports betting in the Argentinean capital Buenos Aires and in Brazil at the end of last year as significant developments.According to the latest dashboard, igaming accounts for just 6.8% of gambling gross win in Latin America and the Caribbean, compared with 23.4% in Europe. The ‘white market’ percentage of this is just 19.4%, compared with 74% in heavily-regulated Europe.Given the popularity of both sports and gambling in Latin America, it’s likely the market has plenty of growth potential as more countries begin to regulate online gambling and sports betting.“The recent developments in LatAm are expected to lead to more both in that region and in Africa,” said Holliday.In Europe, however, H2 sees growth potential slowing.“Even with dot.country launches in Sweden and (hopefully) the Netherlands expected in 2019, H2 expects Europe to have the slowest growth of any region in 2019 at less than 7% for interactive,” Holiday explained. “And that is best case scenario as we are still considering the impacts of headwinds in Italy, Belgium and reland.“Globally the average growth rate will be closer to 9%, with the Americas and Africa expected to fare the best.”Sports betting the star performer Holliday said the World Cup had demonstrated just how exponential the growth in sports betting had been in recent years, with Russia 2018’s handle nearly 2.8 times higher than amounts wagered on Brazil 2014.In the US, however, he said mobile would be a key driver of growth; states that allow mobile wagering will fare better than those that do not allow the channel. H2 research last year found that in the states expected to regulate by 2030, the market would be as much as 50% larger if mobile was permitted across all jurisdictions.Holliday also predicted that sports betting will have a positive impact on US igaming revenue.“European markets have demonstrated that these two complementary parts of the sector work best together,” he said. “With increased confidence in the sector when sports betting is legalised, we expect igaming to be increasingly on the agenda.“DraftKings recently ramping up its igaming offering in New Jersey and increased igaming revenue in the States post-sports betting launch is an early sign.”Mobile takes centre stage In the latest mobile dashboard, H2 predicts that mobile as a percentage of global igaming gross win will rise from 43.6% this year to 52.6% by 2023. It estimates total global mobile gross win will grow to €32.7bn by the same year.Holliday said there has been a significant shift in the perception of mobile over the past year.“Mobile is no longer viewed as an emerging interactive channel, and the two terms have become almost interchangeable.”He also predicts further changes in technology as more Millennials are employed by igaming companies.“There will be an increasing emergence of virtual reality and artificial intelligence technology – particularly in gaming – as Millennials at last become the majority in company tech departments.”The change in demographic won’t be positive for land-based gaming, however, which he noted is struggling to attract Millennials.Holliday also warned that the industry was facing increased regulatory scrutiny, especially in established regulated markets.“In more mature markets such as Italy, Australia, Belgium and the UK, regulators and governments have been tightening up in areas like advertising and problem gambling, as well as increasing taxation of the sector,” he explained.The sector could prepare itself for these challenges by collaborating with its peers, he suggested. By speaking with one, coordinated political voice, operators would be better-placed to “articulate the positive arguments of the industry and fend off further regulatory tightening and taxation increases”.

BAME female gamblers more likely to suffer gambling harm

first_img Regions: UK & Ireland New research on women and gambling in Great Britain shows that female gamblers from a Black, Asian or minority ethnic (BAME) background are over-represented among those classed as ‘high risk’. People Email Address AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter New research on women and gambling in Great Britain shows that female gamblers from a Black, Asian or minority ethnic (BAME) background are over-represented among those classed as ‘high risk’.UK gambling industry charity GambleAware has published the findings of a survey which discovered that 35% of female gamblers who experience high levels of harm and have a Problem Gambling Severity Index (PGSI) score of 8+ came from a BAME background. This compares to just 12% of the overall female population.The poll of around 7,500 women in England, Scotland and Wales found that 8% are considered ‘affected others’ who experience harm as a result of someone else’s gambling. Making up 16% of that group, those from a BAME background were again over-represented.The study, which was conducted by YouGov, is one of a series commissioned to review the current need, demand and use of gambling treatment and support in England, Scotland and Wales.“This research indicates that women, particularly in the capacity as an affected other, experience gambling harms in different ways to men and this report is an important first step in understanding those differences,” said Marc Etches, chief executive of GambleAware.“This research was commissioned to help treatment providers, such as those operating via the National Gambling Treatment Service, address any barriers people may face when it comes to accessing help and support for their gambling and it is essential that services are flexible and meet the needs of individuals.”Researchers also found that women are more negatively impacted by the gambling of a close family member than men. For example, 35% of female affected others, compared to just 9% of male affected others, are negatively affected by the gambling of a spouse or partner.The study also looked at treatment and support for women gamblers and found that a higher proportion of women than men cited stigma as a reason for not receiving treatment.Among those who did not want treatment, advice or support to help them cut down their gambling, two in five (39%) female problem gamblers said feeling embarrassed or not wanting people to find out about their gambling was a key barrier to accessing treatment, support or advice to help cut down on their gambling, compared to just over one in five (22%) male problem gamblers.The research was carried out in the second half of 2019, with an initial random group followed by a targeted survey of gamblers with some level of problem or risk, and ‘affected others’ in phase two. The PGSI was used to determine whether someone was a ‘low risk’ gambler (PGSI score of 1-2), a ‘moderate risk’ gambler (PGSI score of 3-7) or a ‘high risk’ gambler (PGSI score of 8+).Anna Hemmings, chief executive of problem gambling funding body GamCare, said: “This report has highlighted not only the challenges that need to be overcome, but also the opportunities available to service providers to help increase take-up of treatment and support to help reduce and prevent gambling harms among women.“Across our treatment network, in line with the National Gambling Treatment Service, we are working with women to better understand the barriers they may face when it comes to seeking advice or help for their gambling, or experience as an affected other, so that we can continue to ensure they have access the services they need, regardless of their gender or background.”Earlier this month, following the return of live sport, GambleAware launched two new initiatives to raise awareness for its Safer Gambling Campaign and the National Gambling Treatment Service.center_img Topics: People BAME female gamblers more likely to suffer gambling harm Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter 16th July 2020 | By contenteditorlast_img read more

The Super Bowl 2020 is scheduled at the Miami Gardens, Florida, on February 2.“We have sold all of our in-game inventory in the Super Bowl,” Fox’s executive vice president of sports sales Seth Winter has confirmed. “There are a number of advertisers, frankly, who couldn’t land their spots with us because their creative wasn’t ready or because of some indecisiveness, so we are going to go to pre- and post-game inventory to land their units.” Football By Kunal Dhyani – November 26, 2019 Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter WTC Final Day 3 Stumps: India remove Conway and Latham; NZ 101/2 (49 ovs) trail by 116 runs Copa America 2021 COL vs PER LIVE: When and where to watch Colombia vs Peru LIVE streaming in your country, India, Follow live update Euro 2020, Switzerland vs Turkey LIVE: Shaqiri adds another as Switzerland lead 3-1; Follow Live Updates Facebook Twitter WTC Final LIVE: Devon Conway continues red-hot form, slams fifty to provide New Zealand dream start WI vs SA 2nd Test Day 3 Live: South Africa lose early wickets; SA 35/2 (11 ov)- Follow Live Updates by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeGarena Free Fire: Top Three App tricks to earn Free Diamonds in Garena Free Fire OB28 VersionGarena Free Fire Redeem Codes Website: Simple ways to Redeem Codes?Garena Free Fire Redeem Codes 1st May (today), find working codes & get rewardsAfter having achieved its sales targets for the LIVE broadcast, Fox is now charging between $2mn  and $3mm  for pre- and post-game coverage slots.Read: Fox charging $5.6mn for Super Bowl LIV commercials: ReportThere were 77 spots 30-second advertisement spots available during live broadcast of the event and the most precious slots have gone for ₹ 5.6 million.
