Share IMG Arena nets major media extension with Brazil’s Liga Nacional de Basquete August 19, 2020 Submit Related Articles Brazil appoints agencies to accelerate Sports Betting launch August 21, 2020 Belgian Pro League live betting streaming deal for Stats Perform August 21, 2020 StumbleUpon Andrew Morgan, International Director at Independent Content Services, anticipates 2019 will be all about M&A, the USA and the ongoing rise of esports.It has been another incredible year for the global online gambling industry. From power-play acquisitions to new markets opening their doors to legal betting for the very first time, the past 12 months have been transformational for the sector. But it hasn’t all been plain sailing; regulators in markets around the world have tightened the screw on operators, while margins continue to be squeezed due to tax increases and crackdowns on bonuses and advertising. For these reasons and more, 2019 looks set to be a roller-coaster year for online gambling operators and suppliers, with plenty of challenges to be overcome in order to unlock the incredible opportunities on the table. Here are some of the key trends I think will emerge over the coming 12 months: 1) Another wave of M&A will crash down over the sector. William Hill’s takeover of Mr Green is just the start. Related to this, I think we will see M&A used as a way for established operators to pivot away from the UK and refocus on international markets such as the USA. 2) Margins look set to tighten as governments increase betting taxes and crack down on advertising in mature markets such as the UK. At the same time, bookies need to differentiate their product in new markets in order to stand out from their rivals. Emerging regions such as the USA and Africa offer huge potential, but competition will be fierce and to succeed operators must innovate across all areas of the business and deliver a truly superior player experience. 3) Additional US states will legalise sports betting and deploy regulatory frameworks to license operators plying their trade within their borders. I think by the end of 2019 we could see 15-20 states up and running. The industry will therefore treat the United States with ever increasing importance, with more conferences taking place there.4) Away from the US, Brazil and Argentina will build on the small steps made at the tail end of 2018 regarding the legalisation of sports betting. In addition, I think voices in India will become louder and while the market may not legalise in 2019, I believe significant progress will be made. 5) The importance of data will continue unabashed. Operators now understand that gathering, segmenting, analysing and acting upon the huge volumes of information they collect each day is key to driving efficiencies and improving their products and services. 6) eSports will continue its meteoric rise and eSports specific bookmakers such as Luckbox will lay down a major marker to established operators. This will force the major brands to finally take esports seriously. To do this, they will need to focus on personalisation. eSports bettors want their own experience and to offer this, operators will have to use data to generate specific bets and markets, as well as bespoke written, audio and video content that appeals to this largely millennial demographic.7) Artificial Intelligence (AI) and smart assistants will play a greater role in delivering a personalised and improved player experience. We are already seeing operators use AI to recommend games, markets, odds etc to players. Voice assistants such as Amazon Alexa will also be used by more bookmakers to engage players and provide them with the information and data they need to wager without lifting a finger – literally. 8) Finally, I think we will see a resurgence in the popularity of bingo in 2019. The betting industry has been damaged by FOBTs and an over-saturation of adverts, and has a largely unfavourable impression among the general public. Bingo, on the other hand, is seen as a more acceptable form of gambling – a bit like playing the lottery – but has been neglected by operators in recent months and years. There is plenty of untapped potential, so long as the vertical receives a little attention and innovation. Share
Mobile esports is on the up. But it’s safe to say it’s still a divisive issue. We spoke to RewardMob CEO Todd Koch to find out some of his views on the topic. Todd Koch, RewardMobBased out of Canada, but with a European office now open, RewardMob is a platform aimed at helping games developers with user acquisition, monetization and player retention.Esports Insider: Why do you believe in the potential of mobile esports? Todd Koch: Right from day one we seen the potential for massive growth in competitive gaming on mobile devices. It’s a natural progression to follow the massive success that PC based esports have seen over the past several years. Every person that has a mobile device worldwide is a potential mobile esports participant. ESI: Which genre do you see succeeding in mobile esports? We’ve seen a number of titles gaining traction, from MOBAs like Arena of Valour and Vainglory to FPS titles such as Critical Ops. Todd: I think you will always see strong performance from MOBA and FPS genres. They are built for competition and have a well established base in PC and console already. I am excited to see games like Vainglory and Critical Ops pushing the envelope in mobile and having such great success.“Every person that has a mobile device worldwide is a potential mobile esports participant”The goal with RewardMob is to get players engaged in our tournament structure which will mean that almost any mobile game developer can add a casual esports feel to their games no matter what the intended audience or genre.ESI: Tell us a bit more about the RewardMob story. You’ve just opened a new European office in Prague…Todd: Yes, we were fortunate enough to add Thomas Newman and Andrei Gardea who were formally with CashPlay.Both bring a ton of industry experience and are located in Prague. With our office in Canada and in Prague we are essentially able to provide 24 hour customers service to our players and develop around the clock. Since our game developer partners are global it made a lot of sense to also have a global profile and provide the best possible service to our players and game development partners. ESI: RewardMob is involved in the world of cryptocurrency. Why did you make this decision and how do you see it bettering your platform, and the experience of your users? Todd: One of the single biggest issues in esports is chargebacks on credit cards. We have seen some reports with companies as high as 18%. That cuts right into the bottom line and effects revenue for us as well as the gaming partners. Cryptocurrency eliminates fraud and chargebacks.“There is no waiting 30 to 90 days to be paid out like some existing platforms do”Another major advantage is payouts to game developers. Now they can be paid out in real time at that conclusion of the tournaments. There is no waiting 30 to 90 days to be paid out like some existing platforms do.The third thing that is important is that players are able to remove the value from the game whenever they want. For similar reasons to the developers, players do not have to wait for long periods of time to receive payouts when they win a tournament. They will have access to their tokens at the conclusion of every match. ESI: Finally, on the record, what’s your favourite mobile esports title? What are people playing at RewardMob HQ? Todd: To be completely honest most of the staff are playing the games on the RewardMob platform. We launched a new game this past week called Tropical Blast and it’s a lot of fun. We were all engaged deeply in it over the weekend.You can arrange a meeting with RewardMob and find out more about their services at our upcoming ESI Super Forum in London on March 22nd

Let’s start with a spoiler alert, to be fair to all those who have alighted on this article in the hope of reading some reasoned football argument.No, this one’s written with all the prejudice of someone who pays for his season ticket, and it concerns the subject that has bound us all so tightly this season, whether we wear the red-tinted specs of Arsenal or Liverpool, Man City, Everton or Chelsea-blue, or prefer to watch our football in black and white at Newcastle or white and navy blue at Tottenham: The glorious, calamitous and hilarious decline of Manchester United.Kevin Keegan once intimated he’d love their downfall but, honestly, did anyone really think we’d enjoy it quite as much as this? One of the pleasures of my job on the golf circuit has become gathering in some bar with the ex-pats wearing their team colours. We’ve all been united – pun intended – in finishing the night in a state of collapse, not through too much drink but at the latest episode of haplessness. Crestfallen: Manchester United have struggled this season – to the delight of opposing fans across the country Loving it! Former Newcastle manager Kevin Keegan must surely be enjoying United’s struggles this season Mock up: A number of virals have been created making fun of Man United’s struggles – Moyes, as pop star Miley Cyrus, takes a wrecking ball to Old Trafford One fan dialled 999 to call for FergieA drunken United fan called 999 and asked police to talk to ex-manager Sir Alex Ferguson about the crisis in form.‘The result is all wrong. They had extra time and it was a total and utter load of rubbish,’ the male caller moaned. ‘I wanna report a crime,’ the caller added. ‘The crime is that Manchester United … Manchester United … were absolutely knackered.’United have become so bad their away fans continue to sing when they’re 3-0 down. That’s the last resort of away fans who support rubbish teams, who do it to congratulate themselves on their loyalty. We keep being told this transition period was inevitable given the mediocre squad with which David Moyes was bequeathed. Well, excuse me, but didn’t this mediocrity win the league by 11 points last season? Man United, as usual, lapped my team Liverpool several times before settling for finishing just the 38 points ahead. One point per game! This season they’re six points behind. That’s not transition, that’s the most precipitous 22-game decline in football history. Indeed, ‘Moysie’ is looking like the parting gift from Sir Alex Ferguson to fans outside Old Trafford that keeps on giving. It’s certainly the first thing Sir Alex ever did for Liverpool. Tough tenure: Champions United, under new boss David Moyes (centre), should be performing far better+17+17 Making fun: As United’s poor form continues, more and more jokes aimed at the Red Devils are going viral – Moyes and Marouane Fellaini (right) and a mock up of the recent documentary ‘The Class of ’92’ (left)What must he be thinking in his executive seat? Could you imagine a Ferguson side playing counter-attacking football at the soon-to-be-renamed Theatre of Dreams against the side sitting 19th in the Premier League, for heaven’s sake, as they did against Sunderland?Of course, it’s not just the red half of Merseyside that’s doubled-up with laughter. Over at Everton, the School of Science, abandoned for so long, has finally re-opened for lessons and rediscovered a spirit for adventure. Line of the year surely came from the bluenose who proclaimed: ‘Well, it took 13 years, but finally Moyes has lifted Everton above Manchester United.’It’s true Moyes has been dogged by horrendous luck. Who knew overrated ref Howard Webb would stop giving penalties to United the day Sir Alex left? Last week at Chelsea, they were undone by Samuel Eto’o scoring a hat-trick. He wouldn’t have been on the pitch if Webb had sent him off against Liverpool, as he assuredly should have done for his disgraceful tackle on Jordan Henderson. And what team could cope without combined talents such as Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney? Theatre of Dreams? Former manager Sir Alex Ferguson (pictured) would never have played counter-attacking football against a team struggling at the wrong end of the table+17Main men: Most teams would struggle without the combined talents of Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney Moyes wasn’t spot on… +17 David Moyes penned this for the Sunday Times during the World Cup in 2010. Oops…Take Suarez and Sturridge out of my team, and they’d probably finish below Newcastle. But whenever fans of all clubs gather, it’s not these things we talk about.Most of us have a sneaking admiration for Arsenal, and City taking over their neighbour’s mantle as the great entertainers; for Tim Sherwood in exposing AVB as the footballing pseud he appeared and the brilliant job Roberto Martinez is doing at Everton. When it comes to Man U, alas, all sympathy seems to get left at the door. Is it because of a manager who proclaims he tells his players not to dive and yet all of them selected in a forward position have adopted the Tom Daley position at some point this season? Or is it euphoria at seeing the Ferguson jackboot finally freed from the throat of referees?Perhaps it is just the lot of the biggest club, when finally knocked from their effin’ perch, although I don’t recall such gloating outside the M62 corridor when Liverpool finally met this fate. Flying high: Most football supporters have a sneaking admiration for table-toppers Arsenal Goals galore: A shift in power has seen City take United’s mantle as the great entertainers in Manchester +17High praise: Spurs boss Tim Sherwood (left) and Everton boss Roberto Martinez are impressing this season‘Just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse…’ has become a well-used refrain among the football-writing fraternity and it’s hard to see how it could, following the comical penalty shootout against Sunderland.But we mustn’t give up hope just yet. After all, next up is the bottom club Cardiff at home… managed, lest we forget, by former United player Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. That would do it, wouldn’t it?Everybody’s laughing at United… Some of the most popular virals Whoopsie: David Moyes as ‘Some Mothers Do ‘Ave ‘Em’ character Frank Spencer Lightbulb moment: Now the joke is on United Uncharitable: Fans don’t want to be seen in the kit Vicious cycle: Moyes apparently has no chance of catching Mourinho, Pellegrini and Wenger

By Bruce Fuhr,The Nelson Daily SportsTalk about walking around with a Murphy’s Law bull’s eye on your back.But this time, Raymond Reimer wasn’t walking he was running. Running up a flight of stairs training to stay in shape when that bad boy Murphy, like a heat-seeking missile, struck at the knees.It was just six games into Reimer’s third Kootenay International Junior Hockey League season when the lanky, 6’4”, 205-pound defenceman went down with a torn meniscus.“I trained pretty hard this summer, didn’t make a Junior A team but came to Nelson,” the Vanderhoof product said following Nelson’s 4-2 New Year’s Eve win over Spokane. “I was starting to play pretty well but every year it seems I’m getting injured, which is tough to take.”Reimer followed Nelson Leafs coach and GM Chris Shaw to the Heritage City from the Penticton Lakers. In 2009 he played for the Summerland Sting. At the time of the injury back in September, it was thought Reimer might be lost for the season.However, the doctor decided to perform a less complicated surgery that allowed Reimer to return to the line up for game 32 December 29 in Castlegar.“It depends on surgery,” Reimer explained when asked if he thought the injury might be season ending. “If (doctor) would have fixed it, I would have been out for six months. But he just cut it out so it was six to eight weeks.”Still eight weeks off the blades, watching your teammates under perform and knowing that your presence would make a difference was difficult to stomach for Reimer.“It was really frustrating watching from the stands,” confessed the stay-at-home Reimer, who has two assists in three games. “Nelson has always been a top team in the league and seeing us not playing like a top team, and I know we can, it was really tough.”All that sitting and walking into the dressing room between game six and game 32 in street clothes is all in the past for Reimer.However, after dressing for his first game last week, a 9-0 shellacking at the hands of the Castlegar Rebels, Reimer may have pushed his return back a game.“This team needs to come together,” Reimer exclaimed. “We can’t have one person per game trying to carry the team on its back. We need the whole team to come together and if that happens, we’ll start to win.”Reimer admits to being in less than perfect shape during his first weekend back in spite of all the roadwork he did on the stationary bike.However, it shouldn’t take too long 19-year-old rearguard to get back into tip-top shape.Which should help as the Leafs begin a stretch run to the playoffs.ICE CHIPS: Nelson, 19-15-0-1 for third in the Murdoch Division of the KIJHL concluded the month of December with a 3-4 record . . . . Nelson takes to the road for a trek into the East Kootenay. The Leafs face the Ghostriders, Golden Rockets and Columbia Valley Rockies during a three-game swing against Eddie Mountain opposition starting Friday in Fernie. email@example.com
