CHIPs-golf Genting donation gets the ball rolling at largest ever CHIPS Charity Golf TournamentReading Time: 2 minutes

 

The UK casino and gaming community has once again hit a hole in one for children’s charity CHIPS with a record 120 golfers supporting the annual CHIPS Charity Golf tournament held at the prestigious Woburn Golf Club.  The tournament, which is CHIPS flagship fund raising event of the year, generated a total of £55,000, up on last year’s figure of £35,000.  Leading  gaming brand Genting Casinos (UK) underlined its status as one of the charity’s key partners presenting a cheque for £104,000 to CHIPS co-founder, Linda Lindsay.

Reflecting on the tournament, Linda Lindsay, said: “It was an absolutely fantastic day and wonderful to be able to host  our largest ever turnout of golfers. I never cease to be amazed and humbled by the generosity and compassion shown by our industry.  The fantastic cheque for £104,000 from Genting Casinos, is sufficient to purchase at least 12 bespoke powered wheelchairs and in the process transform the lives not just of the recipients but also the lives of their families.”

She added: “I have attended almost all of the 550 wheelchair presentations that CHIPS has been able to make thanks to the generosity of the gaming industry and I can vouch for the life changing impact each and every wheelchair has made – and it’s all down to this industry and amazing supporters such as Genting.  On behalf of my Trustees can I say how immensely grateful we are to everyone from the industry who has supported CHIPS and in the process helped to make this tournament the best event of its type on the casino and gaming industry calendar.”

Paul Willcock, President and COO at Genting Casinos (UK) who presented the bumper cheque alongside Irene Nuqui, Cashdesk Manager at Palm Beach, said: “On behalf of everyone at Genting Casinos can I say how delighted we are to support this outstanding charity which undertakes such magnificent work in the community and embodies the compassion and generosity of our industry.  The team at Genting Casinos has gained immense enjoyment, pride and purpose from supporting the work undertaken by Linda and her Trustees and I am delighted to be able to present her and the CHIPS charity with this cheque for £104,000.”

The charity golf day saw the Grosvenor Casinos team, comprising David Kenny, Adrian Frost, Mark Grogan and Roger Quelsh, winning the tournament for the second consecutive year with 81 points and the runners up position was claimed by a new team from the independent UK spares and repairs company, E-Service, featuring Mike Clokie, Mark Sowray, David Sherwin and Carl Bearman. There were a number of individual winners with Mike Clokie, MD of E-Service named as best player, Sue Kennedy of the Ritz Casino as the ladies winner and Jay Clarke of Horizons Casino the event’s individual winner on points. Roger Quelsh, Melvin Alan and Ashley Matters took home the Nearest the Pin on the 8th and 17th holes and Longest Drive prizes respectively.

CHIPS is one of the UK’s most efficient charities with 100% of the monies raised used to purchase powered wheelchairs for young people across the UK.  CHIPS wheelchairs can cost up to £7,500 and are custom-designed to meet the specific needs of the individual recipient. Born out of the industry, CHIPS has raised in excess of £2.4m, enabling it to purchase 550 wheelchairs.

The world of gambling – as seen by millennials and Generation Z

Max-Dubossarsky-1 The world of gambling – as seen by millennials and Generation ZReading Time: 3 minutes

 

The generation gap is a subject of discussion that continues to be relevant year on year. Why is it that those born since 1981 are so important to the gambling industry and its future? According to Betinvest COO Max Dubossarsky, every new generation contributes to the development of the entertainment industry, raising the standards for how gambling products and services are created.

Millennials caught the peak of digital technology at a young age, at a time when some of the Generation Z babies were being born already with a smartphone in hand.

The issue of continuity of the generations carries from one age to the next and takes on new dimensions. The gambling industry has its finger on the pulse, aware that the characteristics and preferences of each generation provide detailed information about current and potential players.

During recent years, society has had its eyes fixed on the so-called “millennials” – Generation Y – born between 1981 and 1996, and Generation Z – the “New Silent Generation” – born after 1995—1996. Why are their views and way of thinking important to the gambling industry? Mainly because millennials and Gen Z are products of the digital age.

Modern-day innovations, which previous generations could only have dreamed about, are now the norm for Gen Y and Gen Z. So if it is hard to amaze millennials with high-tech “perks”, it is nigh on impossible to surprise Gen Z – who have fully adapted into the world of 3D technology, VR and AR.

To attract and retain the attention of young players and avoid their games becoming a boring alternative to others on the market, operators created products that borrow features from videogames.

The millennial generation is the first to have grown up with videogames, so their way of life has become one of the reasons for developing online gambling.

This first “internet generation” divides their lives between an online and an offline reality. Many things have become possible to do with the use of gadgets, without the need for physical input. In contrast to well-off baby boomers who were big fans of visiting casinos and the luxury entertainment of gambling, millennials lived in unstable economic conditions and are therefore notable for their rationalism. As a result, they prefer more affordable entertainment, including activities which do not involve leaving the house. The gambling industry grasped the attitude of the new generation and changed its approach accordingly: the first gambling websites started to emerge, and the big casinos began organising events with new kinds of entertainment, such as concerts by famous musicians and DJs, opening exclusive malls, and the like.

Another important move in the battle to earn the attention of younger players is product customisation, responsive design, and additional gamification during the gaming process.

Gen Z, who more or less stormed into the digital age fresh from the cradle, have tough demands. In the modern-day world of gambling, it is no longer enough for games to have just high resolution, gripping storylines and 3D effects. Players want light, fun and quality solutions with compatibility across different devices, secure data and convenient payment methods. Products which cannot easily be adapted to the specific characteristics of regional markets lose their standing and risk being unable to keep up with the competition.

Millennials and Gen Z tend to be cautious in what they do online.

Almost every user leaves behind a digital footprint, which is analysed by marketing experts. It “shows” the user’s interests and gives clues as to what the potential customer might like, helping operators to cater to each player better. But at the same time, data confidentiality and secure payment have become two key issues that users consider when completing any online activities.

It is safe to say that each new generation has contributed – and continues to contribute – towards the change in attitudes towards gambling. Each generation develops the industry by demanding more, thereby raising the standards for how gambling products and services are created.

Because of the rapid development in digital technology, today’s players live in two worlds – an online and an offline world. With the huge amount of offers available, they select the products that are easily understandable. Time has become too expensive to waste on figuring out how things work, especially when it comes to the entertainment industry. Their leisure time is therefore crucial for operators to consider.
