Tags: Mobile Online Gambling OTB and Betting Shops Race Track and Racino NFL key to customer acquisition, Kambi report reveals Kambi Group’s review of the 2018-19 National Football League (NFL) season reveals that a strong product offering covering the league is crucial for operators looking to establish themselves in the nascent US sports betting market.The report, compiled using betting data and trends from Kambi’s network of partners in all markets that have legalised sports betting, reveals that 47% of bettors placed their first wager on the NFL.Coming in a distant second was Major League Baseball (MLB), which accounted for 18% of first bets, followed by National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) competitions, on which 14% of punters placed their first bets.Kambi said that since the launch of legal wagering in July 2018, two-thirds of handle was generated from the major US sports leagues, the NFL, MLB, NCAA, National Basketball Association (NBA) and National Hockey League (NHL).However the NFL again outstrips the competition, with 90% of punters placing at least one wager on the league. With this pool of bettors accounting for 98% of all bets placed on the NFL, this suggests a mix of casual and regular players. Just under a quarter of all players only bet on the league, accounting for 4% of market handle.The NFL is also the only league that sees per-minute handle increase during half-time, with 15% of handle generated during breaks in play, even though this only takes up 8% of the total game time.In terms of the most popular bets placed, wagering on the points spread (including overtime) is the most popular both in-venue and online. Players will tend to bet on the top offer during the first half across both channels, but second half bets are more likely to be placed in-venue.Looking to the other leagues, MLB and NBA bettors, tend to be more focused on their sport than NFL bettors. While less than 50% of players bet at least once on each sport (48% for MLB and 49% for NBA), they account for more than 80% of handle for each. Around 18% of players bet on all major sports leagues, accounting for 54% of amounts wagered.Players also looked beyond the US to continue betting after league games ended, with the English Premier League proving to be particularly popular. The competition accounted for 47.8% of in-game handle in the 60 minutes following the end of NFL games, and 9% of total market handle once the US professional sports leagues and NCAA competitions had been taken out. Read the full report from Kambi below Email Address Regions: US 20th February 2019 | By contenteditor Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Topics: Casino & games Sports betting Horse racinglast_img read more

Finnish report proposes slot marketing ban amid new RG measures

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter The report has been compiled as the Finnish government works on changes to the Lotteries Act, through which it will make identification controls mandatory for slot machines from 2023. Veikkaus has already called for this to be brought into effect earlier. Finnish report proposes slot marketing ban amid new RG measures Among the other measures, it suggested that licensing private operators – something the country’s gambling monopoly Veikkaus is strongly against – may be a viable measure to enhance consumer protection. This, it noted, would be overlooked in favour of efforts to force offshore operators from the market.  “Authentication is not in itself a means of controlling gaming, but when implemented responsibly, it is possible to support the control of gaming, for example by monitoring blocks and giving the player feedback,” the report explained.  26th October 2020 | By Robin Harrison Regions: Nordics Finland This contrasts with the likes of Norway, where machines go offline at midnight, and Denmark, which requires all gaming halls to be shut at this time.  Tags: Responsible Gambling Veikkaus The examination of other markets’ responsible gambling safeguards saw a centralised self-exclusion database highlighted as a way to create further visibility of customer activity. This would be aided by mandatory ID verification, something Veikkaus is piloting this month, ahead of a full roll-out in 2021. The report from the Harm Assessment Group, which was formed through the country’s 2001 Lottery Act to make recommendations on measures to minimise gambling problems, is broken into two sections.  However, a further issue with accessibility is caused by the fact that at present there are no restrictions on where slot machines can be located. This means they can be found in any licensed premises, something the report recommends be addressed by either removing all decentralised devices from circulation or limiting them to Veikkaus-operated venues.  Key to reducing the accessibility of slots was a complete ban on marketing the products. This should be complemented by a risk profile analysis of all machines, which in turn would allow them to display warnings about the potential negative effects to customers.  As mentioned above, online harm reduction measures had to take into account the offshore market, the report said. While this could be addressed by some form of licensing, which would give the authorities greater oversight of customer activity, it was more likely to be addressed by new measures to block unlicensed operators’ access to Finnish consumers.  A report compiled by a Finnish Ministry of Social Affairs and Health working group has set out a number of recommendations to better protect slot players in the country from gambling harm, including a ban on marketing the vertical. Responsible gambling Finally, mandatory limits were also highlighted as being potentially effective. This is already in effect, with a reduced €500 limit in place for online games such as slots and bingo until 2021. However it could be expanded to other forms of gambling, the report suggested, provided the limits were applied in a uniform fashion, and still allowed people to gamble reasonable sums.  The first, written by the group itself, focuses on measures that could be taken to tighten existing controls, while the second, written by University of Helsinki researchers Tuulia Lerkkanen and Virve Marionneau, provides a comparison with other regulated gambling markets.  The report concludes that the availability and accessibility of slots leads to problems, something that would be tackled to some extent by Veikkaus’ efforts to reduce the number of machines in operation by 8,000 by the end of 2020. Currently, it noted, only Denmark has more machines per person than Finland. Email Address However, responsible gambling efforts are being impacted by long opening hours, the report concluded. Currently slots not hosted in Veikkaus’ venues are operational 24 hours a day, while the operator’s Feel Vegas arcades are open until 3am.  Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Topics: Casino & games Social responsibility Online casino Slots Problem gambling Responsible gamblinglast_img read more
