Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Camelot UK Lotteries has unveiled details of a new draw-based annuity game that offers UK players the chance of winning £10,000 (€11,100/$12,800) a month for the next 30 years.Set For Life will launch on March 18, with tickets – priced at £1.50 each – to go on sale via the National Lottery’s website, mobile app and official retail outlets from March 15.Players will pick five main numbers from one to 47 and a Life Ball, numbered between one and 10, with those matching all five main numbers and the Life Ball winning the top prize.Camelot estimates the odds of winning the £10,000 a month for 30 years main prize at 15,339,390 to one. Draws will take place every Monday and Thursday.The National Lottery operator plans to promote the new game through an advertising campaign, which will be rolled out over the coming weeks.“Annuity games really appeal to a growing number of people who like the idea of winning a prize paid out in regular instalments over the long term, and are very successful in other countries,” Camelot chief executive Nigel Railton said. “We think that Set For Life will be just as popular here in the UK – it will offer National Lottery players something completely new and meet a different set of consumer needs, especially among younger people.”Camelot first announced plans to introduce a new lottery game in September last year as part of a wider overhaul of its product offering to boost its appeal to players. Other changes also included altering the prize structure for its flagship Lotto game.This follows a wide-ranging strategic review of the business, conducted to safeguard funding generated for good causes through its games. Early efforts taken as part of this initiative helped Camelot report a year-on-year rise in National Lottery sales to £6.95bn in its 2017-18 financial year, including record digital sales of £1.65bn.“We’ve now got a mix of compelling draw-based games that suits all tastes, play styles and pockets,” Railton added. “That’s vital for The National Lottery’s long-term health – and will help to ensure that, in the years to come, we continue to deliver even more for our players and the millions of people for whom National Lottery funding is so crucial.”The launch comes ahead of the National Lottery’s 25th anniversary in November.

If employers in the betting and gaming industry don’t properly manage the transition out of lockdown, they risk alienating both their existing and prospective talent base, says Gambling.com Group’s Ellen Monaghan Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter 26th May 2020 | By Joanne Christie Regions: Europe US Tags: Online Gambling Casino & games Navigating the post-pandemic workplace Email Address If employers in the betting and gaming industry don’t properly manage the transition out of lockdown, they risk alienating both their existing and prospective talent base, says Gambling.com Group’s Ellen Monaghan.Right now, it is not clear when we will all be able to be in the same physical workspace again, if ever. Therefore it’s vitally important that employers adapt and evolve to the changing needs of their workforce.Many businesses that require the physical presence of staff will return to work with strict social distancing rules, temperature testing, one-way systems, Perspex screens and sanitisation protocols.But for those who can work remotely, this could well become their new world going forward. In time, large office-based companies may forego their expensive, rented city-centre buildings in favour of smaller premises, perhaps even outside of cities.Now that it has been proven efficient to have remote workers operating in multiple time zones, the days of packed boardroom meetings could well be over. It may soon be common for some employees to be fully remote, others office-based full-time with another group working somewhere in between. So what do these predicted trends mean for the recruiting and retaining of individuals in the gambling industry?How we work will change For employers in the gaming sector grappling with these new concepts and desires, it’s important to put a few things into perspective – being forced to work at home during a global pandemic should not be directly compared to remote working in general.There are so many stress factors that could be affecting employees during the coronavirus crisis, such as the loss of a loved one, anxiety about the future, illness, loneliness from isolation or exhaustion from home-schooling and childcare. Many of these issues won’t be prevalent in the post-pandemic era of remote working.Right now, it is more important than ever to promote a culture of transparency and openness, which can make your employees’ lives easier and ensure their output is more effective.This can be achieved by clearly communicating what is expected of employees in terms of their goals and responsibilities, as well as by giving them the correct tools and mechanisms to undertake those tasks and collaborate with teammates.If companies have improved their processes in this way during the pandemic, there will be little room for micromanagement post the pandemic.Opportunity to be more resourceful The challenge will be ensuring that any return to office life in future does not bring with it a return to bad habits – meetings for issues that could have been sufficiently dealt with digitally, for example.When countries and economies are fully reopened, companies should seriously evaluate the tasks they have not been able to do and consider if they ever really needed to be done in the first place. There will be no better time to assess methods and clean up our acts. Technology and online businesses are accustomed to paperless and automated processes, but this may be the first time that many companies have been forced to change how they do things. For every monotonous task you can be sure that there is an app that can either assist with the process or, better yet, do it entirely. Virtual assistants are also a resource that will be increasingly relied upon.The future of work is going to be more flexible in terms of where, when and how we go about our business. Some companies may find this a challenge, but we have found that by showing flexibility where possible, it can improve an employee’s personal situation and simultaneously their employee experience. In turn, that will aid their satisfaction and productivity. How to keep staff engaged But it’s also going to be important to help make employees feel human again. After Covid-19 a lot of people may struggle to adapt to the new normal if, as is predicted, things cannot fully go back to the way they were.To keep employees fulfilled, we have always embraced charity work because when a workforce comes together to raise funds for good causes, it gives everyone a lift and provides an opportunity to help the less fortunate.Many sectors are finding it extremely difficult in these times, especially charities, which have lost many fundraising opportunities. Giving something back in a fun, social and interactive way is still possible without physical workplace events. Group activity challenges to promote teamwork and wellness have been virtual successes for our company and are something that we will continue in the post-pandemic world.Review your employee benefits It’s important to accept that many standard, pre-pandemic employee reward and recognition mechanisms simply will not work in the medium term post-pandemic. A culture valuing flexibility should extend to company perks.Benefits should be reviewed to make them fit for both pandemic times and the post-pandemic future of increased remote work. Office beers and pizzas as team rewards could become spot awards and published praise, for example, while onsite massages and company days out at the races could be switched for help with utility costs and lunch meal reimbursements. Looking forward, perhaps hosting whole company events in hotels or conferencing facilities for quarterly or monthly meetings and get-togethers will enable all members of staff – whether remote or office-based – to socialise with colleagues in person.There was already a significant desire among those in the gaming industry to work from home before the pandemic and this has only increased as many have companies have successfully carried on doing business despite the restrictions in place.Video interviews, online assessments and virtual onboarding could become the new norm for any job that can be done from home – and the gambling industry has many jobs with remote capability.To ignore the growing desire to work remotely after the pandemic would show a lack of trust at best and organisational incompetency at worst. For gambling companies that want to be able to attract and retain talent, it’s sink or swim time.

This saw the operator introduce new algorithms to its Observer software to closely follow player behaviour and prompt interventions from its safer gambling team where necessary. The tracking was supported was supported by a campaign to promote responsible play, including emails outlining how to keep gambling sustainable, and a social media campaign to raise wider awareness. During the shut-down, there was a degree of substitution to products such as virtuals, darts and table tennis, and esports, following by a “better than expected” customer reaction to the gradual return of events from mid-May onwards. However, early in the second half, the operator has recognised a provision of $1.5m, arising from a regulatory related matter that arose following the period end. 30th September 2020 | By Aaron Noy This left earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) of $70.1m, a 56.1% year-on-year improvement. After depreciation and amortisation charges of $16.7m, and finance related costs of $3.0m, the operator’s adjusted profit before tax was up 86.0% at $50.4m. This meant that betting revenue in June was 59% ahead of the prior year, helping reduce the decline for the period. April saw 888’s proprietary sportsbook platform, developed using the BetBright technology, rolled out in Sweden, with other markets to following, including Great Britain early next year. B2C revenue for the six months to 30 June grew to $361.3m (£282.0m/€308.6m), with casino’s contribution growing 48.2% to $260.0m, making to comfortably the largest vertical for the operator. However poker, with revenue up 56.3%, was the standout performer, and bingo revenue grew 8.2% to $21.1m. Finance During the period, 888 said, it ramped up player protection efforts as countries went into lockdown. The largest single market, however, was Great Britain, where revenue grew 45.7% to $142.2m. The Americas’ contribution, driven by strong B2C growth in New Jersey and an improved performance in Delaware, was up 63.7% at $40.6m. This included a 57% hike in non-US revenue from other markets in the region. 888 Holdings saw revenue grow 36.7% year-on-year in the first half of the year, thanks to strong growth across its gaming products and declines in sports betting’s contribution kept to a minimum. However, the board warned that a prolonged period of global macroeconomic uncertainty following the Covid-19 pandemic could impact consumers’ discretionary spending, causing further headwinds. Looking at revenue by market, all countries and territories posted year-on-year growth, aside from Spain, where revenue fell 2.1% to $32.6m. 888 doubles profits following strong H1 revenue growth H1 also saw 888 more than double the number of accounts that were restricted to protect customers, as part of a “more cautious” approach to affordability. Bonus offers for British players displaying signs of gambling related harm were also temporarily halted, while reverse withdrawals were suspended, as mandated by the Gambling Commission. Of the $156.3m total, $36.2m came from non-European markets, up 73.2%. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter “Nevertheless, the board remains confident that, underpinned by the Group’s unique technology and diversification across product verticals and geographic markets, 888 remains well positioned to deliver continued progress,” the operator said. The largest contribution came from the Europe, Middle East and Africa region (excluding Spain and Great Britain) for which revenue was up 35.4% to $156.3m. Growth in the segment was driven by casino and poker, especially in Italy, where revenue was up 51% year-on-year, and Sweden, where revenue jumped 123%. Topics: Finance The second half will see a number of product improvements rolled out, such as its new poker product, Poker 8, and the launch of its new sportsbook platform Spectate, following its deployment in Sweden. This helped the operator significantly grow earnings and net profit for the period, which grew 56.1% and 131.0% respectively. The business then recorded a number of exceptional items, including $2.3m in share benefit charges, then a $1.3m provision for potential regulatory action related to legacy customer activity in prior periods. This had originally been set at $4.1m before it was reduced by $2.8m by 888 management during the reporting period. “In addition, 888 remains highly vigilant about its responsibilities to continue to protect customers and prevent gambling-related harm and will begin the roll-out of a new customer-centric safe gambling feature called the Control Centre during the second half of the year,” it added. Sports betting was the only vertical to post a year-on-year decline in revenue, though this was limited to an 0.9% drop from the prior year. The operator explained that before sporting events around the world were suspended or cancelled as a result of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, revenue for January and February was up 22% year-on-year. It also recorded a $1.6m capital gain from the sale of its investment in Come2Play, a social studio owned by Scientific Games’ SciPlay subsidiary. This left a profit before tax of $50.9m, up 129.3%. Looking ahead, 888 said that it had continued to trade ahead of expectations in the third quarter to 28 September, with average daily revenue up 56% year-on-year. This, it said means EBITDA for the year will likely come in “significantly ahead of prior expectations”. After $5.4m in income taxes, 888’s net profit for the six months to 30 June stood at $45.5m, a 131.0% improvement on H1 2019’s $19.7m total. Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter “This outcome reflects the group’s continued strong levels of customer acquisition, general consumer trends towards increased use of online services especially during the Covid-19 lockdown period and 888’s relentless focus on product leadership,” 888 chief executive Itai Pazner (pictured) commented. Turning to outgoings for the period, operating costs were up across the board. Operating expenses grew to $94.9m, with the rise in revenue resulting in gaming taxes and duties increasing to $69.6m. Marketing and selling expenses increased to $105.2m, administrative expenses to $20.8m, and research and development costs to $20.8m. B2B revenue, meanwhile, rose 20.3% to $17.8m for the six month period. “We recognised early on that the Covid-19 pandemic would have a material impact on the lives of our customers across many global markets and this required an appropriate response from 888,” Pazner explained. “We were therefore quick to increase our vigilance on safe gambling and preventing gambling-related harm.” Email Address

Tribes and sports betting – best practice to maximise the opportunity “We are seeing in conversations with operators across the US and North American general the need to make sure that you have an integrated product offering, so that you can utilise sports betting as an acquisition channel and move those customers across the other verticals,” one pointed out. “I think that the best practice is to look at what other jurisdictions are doing well, continue doing that and then some of the things that seem to be tragic or constrictive can be revisited. We can think of another method that we can use to accomplish the same compensating control without being so intrusive.” Regions: US “We knew that it wasn’t going to be a big revenue driver… so rather than focusing more on revenue, it was more focused on how do we get out there in this new day and age.” The new vertical is proving to be a steep learning curve for everyone involved, especially the market regulators. 21st April 2021 By Nosa Omoigui However, due to the volume of customers interested in betting, betting can be a useful tool in player acquisition. The future of the market appears to lie in the hands of sports bettors, even if they may not be the most prominent source of revenue. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter “We brought sports back – we had it in the past,” another participant explained. “It was grandfathered in a smaller capacity but we brought it back because we had heard from players that they had wanted it to come back. “We, we know that the sports betting industry is in its infancy, so there’s a big push around big multi state operators that are racing to the bottom. So what do you do to future proof your business that’s giving back to your community over the next 10 to 20 years? It’s not just looking at that so we’re doing a lot of work with our partners around how to maximize that revenue across a longer period of time. While different states are trying to find out what works best for them, regulators are happy to borrow from each other in order to find the best solutions. “It’s a little bit different than the commercial respect where everyone cares about profits, but they have to answer to different types of stakeholders, whereas tribal operators are just trying to take care of their community and their government.” The quotes below are a selection from the digital speakeasy held on 14 April as part of the ICE 365 Tribal Gaming content series, sponsored by Kambi. The task moving forward is now for providers to create sports betting platforms that are easy for customers to understand and use, and to get these players interested in other verticals after this initial relationship has been established. Tribal vs commercial Multiple speakeasy attendees said they have started to realise that across the board that it’s cheaper to acquire sports betting customers than other group, such as lottery or casino players. The challenges brought about by these new markets were discussed by those within the tribal gaming sector at the ICE 365 Digital Speakeasy on the topic, held on 14 April. Digital speakeasies are free-flowing, informal conversations, limited to a small group of participants, who meet digitally to discuss topics of interest. “Over time, we imagine those betters would become more sophisticated in their betting techniques and we feel that that is a great way to start to bring those people into the fold of all the other wonderful things that a casino resort has to offer. We believe that we can trigger a lot of brick-and-mortar trips from there.” Topics: Casino & games ICE365 Content Series Tribal gaming The new priority New regulatory challenges “It’s not just about the next two years, it’s how to have something in place that’s going to be of a long term benefit to communities.” “There’s traditional sports bettors that have been doing this for a very long time and enjoy a sophisticated system – parlay bets and prop bets and different things like that – but what we’re hoping for is something simpler, easy to use, with a very friendly interface for people that like to watch sports and may be new to betting,” one attendee said. “I would you have to think of tribal governments as more of a lottery model where you know the owners of the operation are the primary beneficiaries – so that would be the tribal government in this case,” an attendee explained. “Those revenues trickle down into their social programs and the operation of government. While catering to bettors has become an important goal for reaching a large number of players, as a revenue source betting still lags behind other verticals. For many attendees at the tribal gaming speakeasy, this means appealing to casual customers. The popularity of the sports betting market is undeniable, and those in the industry have already started to work on attracting betting customers. Those who have had regular contact with both sides said it was clear that the goals of the two differ greatly. “As a regulator, I have to wait until some bits of information from the final legislated bill are actually handed down to me, so I have a working tool to start drafting the operations regulatory controls,” a regulator in attendance said. Whilst company growth and revenue may be top of the agenda for commercial retailers, attendees said tribal governments are looking at the big picture. It’s no surprise that sports betting has become a top priority for operators, suppliers and regulators across the continent. 6 minutes read A sports betting boom is clearly sweeping across North America.

Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Others find themselves starting from scratch, with one mentioning going from “being the expert to being the student all over again”, and while learning something new is beneficial in the long run, it provides its own set of challenges. Due to the fact that tribal governments are deeply entrenched into the communities they serve compared to commercial operators, many said they have no choice but to be thinking in the long term.
