iGaming Capital magazine published

Published

on

The first issue of iGaming Capital, a new magazine focusing on the gaming industry in Malta, has been launched.

The first edition features a mix of in-depth features and interviews about the trending topics in the industry: from changing iGaming regulations across Europe to the profiles of local key players in the industry including Parliamentary Secretary for Financial Services, Digital Economy and Innovation Silvio Schembri, and Gaming Malta Chairman Christian Sammut.

Launching her column in this first ever issue is Marion Gamel, a C-level executive with over 20 years of experience, who has been coaching entrepreneurs, founders and C-executives around the world since 2015. Her aim is to provide advice to business leaders to empower them on issues ranging from improving efficiency to driving transformation and international growth within their company – advice which will undoubtedly be valuable to high-level executives managing transformations in this changing industry.

On the other hand, the iGaming industry is famous for the fantastic lifestyle it provides those who work within it, from lavish parties to exciting company trips. iGaming Capital spotlights not just the work, but also the play, diving into the fast-paced and cosmopolitan world that the industry has created in Malta, and giving those who have made this island their home a guide that they can relate to. From paparazzi pages to lifestyle features to restaurant reviews, this publication reflects the excellent quality of life that an expat iGaming professional can expect to find in Malta.

“iGaming has become one of the most important sectors for Malta. Its presence on the island has affected the country’s economy, lifestyle, and culture in countless ways,” said editor Marie-Claire Grima. “Yet, up until now, there has never been a publication that caters to the specific interests and needs of this fascinating and constantly-changing sector. As the industry in Malta stabilises and matures, the time has come for this to change.”

“As an organisation we are very strong in the business-to-business and corporate segment, and we deal with a large number of key business operators in Malta on a daily basis,” said Matthew Spiteri, Head of the Print and Digital Ad Sales Department at Content House Group.

“We’ve been told on repeated occasions that there is a need for a strong, high-profile media brand that serves as the voice of the growing iGaming industry and that fulfils the country’s ambition to become a capital city for this successful industry. This is how this brand was conceived and the feedback we’ve been having – from the industry itself as well as from the equally important industry that services the iGaming community at large – has been superlative. The publication of iGaming Capital just the beginning for this brand!”

iGaming Capital is a brand owned and operated by Content House Group, one of Malta’s leading media organisations in both print and digital media.

iGaming Capital is distributed to all iGaming companies in Malta, affiliated businesses, and select operators overseas. It is also available to purchase from leading newsagents. You can have a look at the first edition here.

9stacks Launches Pokerface With Gopal Datt: India’s First Poker Chat Show

poker-face-gopal-datt 9stacks Launches Pokerface With Gopal Datt: India’s First Poker Chat ShowReading Time: 2 minutes

 

Pokerface with Gopal Datt is a first-of-its-kind poker chat show which celebrates the lives and stories of poker players. This first episode can be watched on the 9stacks YouTube Channel here. Episode 2 of the series was released on Friday, 17th May 2019, on the 9stacks YouTube channel. The episode that has Datt interview poker heavyweight Deepak Bothraand TVF Bachelors fame Badri Chavan, can be watched here.

The twist is that each episode features one actor/celebrity and one poker player, and gets both to spill the beans about their journey to fame and fortune. In a fun way, this draws parallels between the featured celebrities and poker players and celebrates the achievements of both guests.

The first episode of the show, hosted by Gopal Datt (the Internet’s very own funny man), features Amol Parashar, of TVF Tripling fame, and one of India’s top poker players Nishant Sharma. Last year Nishant won the highest ever prize money by an Indian poker player at the World Series of Poker Main Event in Las Vegas.

Nishant, along with fellow poker pro Vivek Rughani, was part of the 9stacks Team India at the World Series of Poker and they became the first two Indians to enter the top 100 in the prestigious WSOP Main Event. Read the article here.

In the episode, Nishant speaks candidly about achieving his poker dreams and how he became a ‘Hero’ for other players in the industry. Many players now come to him for advice on their gameplay and some even ask him for selfies. His ‘Bina Darre’ playing style has won many hearts.

Nishant is accompanied by the celebrated actor Amol Parashar, who is also an avid poker player himself. An IIT Delhi alumnus, Amol was always into acting and was very interested in theatre. Amol recalled how his poker skills helped him sniff out a bluff early in his career: “Once I was offered a film with big casts like Mr. Amitabh Bachhan, Naseeruddin ShahSharman Joshi. Since I was new in the industry, I was asked to attend the workshop for the same where I was asked to pay Rs. 15,000 as room rent. I couldnt help but smell a bluff there. I mean, after all, if they were such a big film company, they surely wouldn’t ask me to pay Rs. 15,000 to book a room to rehearse in, right?”

Many more revelations came in the rapid fire segment of the show where the answers were ‘rapid and full of fire’. Unlike Koffee with Karan, the guests here got a lot of love instead of hampers!

Online Punters Having Issues Trusting UK Gambling Sites

Published

online-punters Online Punters Having Issues Trusting UK Gambling SitesReading Time: 2 minutes

 

According to the UK Gambling Commission and YouGov, an independent data and public opinion company, most players in the UK don’t trust online casinos.

There have been several surveys held and published by these two authorities. Despite a different scale, period, and groups of respondents, the results were strikingly similar.

One of the surveys only questioned over a thousand of gamblers in the UK while another one included many more. One of them only included gamblers while the other one wasn’t limited to gamblers only.

Regardless of these differences, both surveys concluded that:

  • Around 70% of gamblers don’t trust the UK’s casino operators

According to the official data, this percentage has dropped by roughly 20% since 2011. That’s certainly alarming for the online gambling industry, especially since so many measures are taken to ensure the player’s safety.

However, it’s the industry’s and, most importantly, its regulators’ own fault. They have been trying to raise awareness regarding rogue casinos, problem gambling and similar casino-related issues in the past.

It seems that with such a decline in casino users’ trust, they’ve been very successful. In a way, this is a good thing too. After all, self-aware gamblers are less likely to suffer from irresponsible gambling outlets.

Punters Don’t Trust Online Casinos

YouGov explored this issue further with more specific questions such as:

  1. Do you support the decrease of a maximum stake at FOBTs from £100 to £2?
  2. How serious are gambling companies when they say they want their players to gamble responsibly?
  3. Do you support prepositions to limit the spending, stakes and speed one can gamble at online casinos?

All three questions revealed that gamblers in the United Kingdom are mostly for further restrictions. This implies that they don’t trust the operators and sites where they place their wagers.

Public Opinion in Numbers

For example, only 9% of people oppose the reduction of a maximum stake at physical betting terminals at bookies. Similarly, only 19% oppose suggestions to add similar limits to online casinos too.

More than 80% and 74% respectively agree with the tightening of gambling options both online and offline.

When it comes to trust related to responsible gambling promotion by the gambling sites, the situation is very similar. 71% think that casinos aren’t serious when they’re promoting responsible gambling.

Likewise, only 26%, or one in four, believe such communications of online casinos are truthful.

Why Is There So Little Trust?

Many stories of gamblers suffering from mobile casinos and their addictions have surfaced in recent months. This includes the ineffectiveness of GAMSTOP and similar problem gambling organizations.

Another example (more than one, in fact) is of casino operators that send self-excluded players promotions and personal offers to make them play casino games again.

Such examples have naturally diminished the public opinion of gambling firms and the industry as a whole. The watchdogs still struggle to protect certain gamblers in some respects, so people generalize this news.

Combined with a gambling stigma and the myths of rogue casinos, like outlined on the blog of GoWin, it’s no surprise that there’s little trust in the casino industry online.

Luckily, the situation is slowly improving thanks to frequent discussions and problem solving efforts. So, this decline in the trust of UK online casinos can’t last forever.
