LeoVegas to introduce open banking payment solution

first_img LeoVegas will allow open banking transactions for its customers, starting in the UK, becoming the first gaming operator to do so. 30th November 2020 | By Daniel O’Boyle AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter “Secure, seamless and fast payments are incredibly important, and the fact that we now – through PSD2 – have the opportunity to directly integrate with many European banks, will provide a superior customer experience offered by security and speed,” Gustaf Hagman, LeoVegas’ group chief executive, said. Email Address Open banking – which allows consumers to share their transaction history with businesses – will be implemented through LeoVegas’ own platform. The operator said it anticipates this will facilitate “more secure and faster payments” as well as lower transaction fees and less dependence on third-party payment providers. “There is a high level of activity in our product and technology development organisation, and it is exciting to see all of the innovations we are delivering to our customers. We are first out in the industry with this pioneering payment solution, which will change the entire payments industry in the years ahead.” After the UK launch, LeoVegas intends to roll out the solution across the rest of Europe. “Conducting transactions via open banking is also considerably more cost-effective compared with traditional payment methods. Hagman added that he expected open banking to seriously change payments in the gaming industry. Payments Topics: Tech & innovation Online casino Payments The payment method became an option through the Second European Payment Services Directive (PSD2). So far, the operator said about 10% of customers have chosen to use open banking for their payments.  Tags: LeoVegas Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Regions: Europe UK & Ireland LeoVegas to introduce open banking payment solutionlast_img read more

GC extends gambling-harm consultation deadline due to high engagement

first_imgIn announcing the consultation last month, the Commission said while operators already have the capability of identifying customers who may be harmed by gambling, evidence suggests the industry has not used this sufficiently to reduce harms. It is therefore keen to gather feedback on how to improve these processes. Regions: UK & Ireland A spokesperson said: “This extension will allow more time for detailed feedback and the strongest evidence base possible from consumers and other stakeholders.” Opening on 3 November, the Commission-led consultation on affordability and intervention is calling for views and feedback from consumers, people with lived experience, industry and other stakeholders on stronger requirements on online operators to identify consumers who may be at risk of gambling harm, and the preventative actions they should take. This includes improved affordability checks and actions for vulnerable consumers. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Though the consultation will is open to all stakeholders, the Commission said it will place a particular focus on consumers. It wants to gauge how operators should identify vulnerability, as well as gambling that is unaffordable, and the circumstances when to take action on behalf of consumers. Topics: Problem gambling It is looking to gather stakeholder opinion on what these thresholds for the affordability assessments should be, as well as the nature of these checks and how operators are required to protect consumers after an assessment. As such, the regulator has proposed that operators should be required to act on the information they have about a consumer’s potential vulnerability. The Commission also aims to have licensees introduce stronger requirements, including defined affordability assessments at thresholds set by the regulator. GC extends gambling-harm consultation deadline due to high engagement “We are clear on the need for gambling companies to take further action and that the Commission must set firm requirements to set consistent standards,” Gambling Commission executive director Tim Miller said at the time. 22nd December 2020 | By Richard Mulligan Tags: Gambling Commission Email Address With high engagement since the consultation opened last month, the Commission has extended the call for evidence deadline by four weeks to 9 February. Great Britain’s Gambling Commission has extended the submissions deadline for its remote customer interaction consultation due to high engagement since its launch last month.

Affiliate Monitor: January 2021

first_imgAs the affiliate industry starts to put the worst period of the pandemic in its rear-view mirror, a key trend that predated it has come to the fore again, that of the divergence of the big players when it comes to paid media.  AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter But as the bonus and deposit limits in Sweden have demonstrated, affiliates can sometimes enjoy a short-term boost when clampdowns push players to shop around within the regulated markets. Stephen CarterEditorial director, iGB The other big topic occupying affiliates right now is the increasing likelihood of deposit limits spreading further across Europe. Though proposals for spending caps in the UK have been widely criticised, many feel it’s almost inevitable some curbs will be introduced.  The news shortly after the end of the third quarter that Better Collective was investing €44m in paid media specialist Atemi made clear which side of the fence the sports betting-heavy affiliate is on.  17th January 2021 | By contenteditor For some time there’s been a growing divide in the sector, with some of the big names piling into paid media while others move away from it to focus more on SEO.  Email Address Topics: Finance Marketing & affiliates Affiliatescenter_img Alongside the usual company-by-company analysis of the numbers, this edition of iGB’s quarterly performance marketing review explores a clear divergence of strategy when it comes to paid media and the growing prevalence of spending caps As for the impact on affiliates, that’s less clear. Over the long term the changes are unlikely to be positive, especially for those operating only in regulated markets as draconian rules often drive players towards unlicensed offerings.  Marketing & affiliates If you are unable to see the iframe above you can download the PDF report here! Raketech seems to be taking a similar position, having acquired the paid media-led Lead Republik earlier this year, and GiG’s third-quarter results show the company’s paid media revenues are steadily rising. Catena, on the other hand, seems to be moving in the opposite direction, with its enthusiasm for paid media waning over the past couple of years.  Affiliate Monitor: January 2021 Subscribe to the iGaming newsletterlast_img read more
