Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

JCM Global has announced that it has acquired the UK trade association bacta’s shareholding in Game Payment Technology.

GPT is the cashless payment solution company, previously jointly owned by bacta and Latitude 91, the parent company of industry payments specialists Polar Moment.

The buy-in is a significant move by JCM Global to drive the amusement and gaming machine industry forward with cashless payment solutions. It follows the announcement that JCM Global would use the GPT cashless payment system to extend the functionality of the Ticket2Go market-leading ticketing system.

“There is no doubt that the need for cashless solutions alongside other forms of payment within the gaming sector and the wider world is growing. Therefore, this investment in Game Payment Technology is strategically very important for JCM Global and an extension of the market-leading service our customers have come to expect from us,” Payam Zadeh, JCM General Manager EMEA and Managing Director UK, said.

“These are exciting times for JCM Global and we anticipate that players in jurisdictions around the world will soon be able to pay and collect winnings via Ticket2Go using the GPT app, effectively replacing cash-handling with a simple, ticket-based solution. The combination of the two systems means that operators can offer cashless payment without needing to alter individual gaming machines. The solution incorporates social responsibility measures and opportunities for precisely targeted marketing initiatives,” Zadeh added.

“We are thrilled to see the GPT app, which we developed for the UK machine sector, find a new home with JCM Global, who will be able to develop the technology and roll it out for the benefit of operators and players around the world. The partnership with bacta and Polar Moment to establish Game Payment Technology was unique and extremely successful and we would like to thank all those involved in bringing the app to this point,” Tim Stratton, director of Game Payment Technology, said.

Ski Challenge, the fast-paced esports game by Greentube, has become one of the most popular sports games just a few months after its official launch. For the second season, the developers of NOVOMATIC Digital Gaming and Entertainment Division, in close cooperation with ski associations and co-shareholders from Austria (ÖSV), Switzerland (Swiss-Ski), and Germany (DSV), are planning an attractive innovation for all ski and game enthusiasts: the Nations Cup, starting in autumn 2023.

Developed as a tribute to Greentube’s first published game, Ski Challenge has had an extremely successful first season with over half a million downloads on iOS and Android since its release in October 2022. The game is not only popular among players but has also established itself as an attractive platform for high-profile global brand partnerships.

Thanks to continuous and extensive updates that enhance the competitive nature of Ski Challenge, Greentube and the three successful ski associations, ÖSV, Swiss-Ski, and DSV, have now joined forces as shareholders to create an exciting new tournament series: the Ski Challenge Nations Cup.

This thrilling competition invites players to represent their countries and compete for honor, glory, and attractive prizes in multiple qualifying rounds and the tournament phase. But that’s not all. Ski Challenge players who qualify for Germany, Austria, and Switzerland will now compete as official national teams for their respective ski associations.

The tournament events will take place parallel to the actual Ski World Cup events. With this expansion, Ski Challenge aims to further strengthen its esports concept and transfer the enthusiasm of skiing into the virtual world.

Michael Bauer, Greentube’s CFO/CGO, said: “We are thrilled to be able to add a number of new teams to the game as part of our Ski Challenge Nations Cup update. These federations are staples of the sport and give the game another level of legitimacy. We firmly believe our highly dedicated and loyal player base will be delighted with these upcoming additions as Ski Challenge continues to grow as a premier esports title.”

Diego Züger, CEO Commercial Swiss-Ski: “This is a great opportunity for skiing. With the establishment of the Nations Cup and the entry into esports, we will inspire new target groups and further develop skiing as a whole. The successful cooperation with Ski Austria and the German Ski Association, as well as Greentube, shows that a lot is possible with good collaboration.”

Stefan Schwarzbach, Board of Communication, German Ski Association: “With the Nations Cup, we as associations want to establish a direct connection to real skiing and our top athletes. Ski Challenge is increasingly becoming an attractive communication platform to inspire children and young people for skiing. In the medium term, our clubs and ski clubs should also benefit from this.”

Christian Scherer, Secretary General, Austrian Ski Association: “We are incredibly excited to launch a virtual tournament series that will revolutionize the world of skiing and bring nations together. This initiative expands the reach and ignites the competitive spirit of skiers worldwide. It is undoubtedly one of the most exciting announcements of 2023 as we embark on this exciting journey to shape the future of skiing and create an unforgettable experience for all involved.”
