For football-focused Nigeria, the confirmation that one of the leading sports betting brands 1xBet has been granted a full National Licence in the country until 2024 is a major coup for players, operators and Nigerian sports clubs alike.

1xBet’s expansion plans across Africa have reached a fever pitch as the company prepares to bolster its position in Nigeria with a new license, new partnerships and an aim to “set new standards of betting culture” on the continent, according to the 1xBet team.

“We are well aware of Nigeria’s position as a renowned football-focused market,” they said.   “In 2018 we signed a partnership agreement with the Nigeria Football Federation, the Nigeria national football team, as well as the Nigerian Premier League.   In addition, we are official partners of the African Confederation of Football and the largest club tournaments of the continent. We have accumulated considerable experience while working with top football clubs such as Barcelona. Therefore, we not only offer Nigerian fans a wide range of betting options, but also a sense of involvement in the victories of their favorite teams. Football fans can be sure of 1xBet, where they always have a winning chance alongside their favorite clubs.”

As one of the leading operators now licensed in the country, 1xBet is keen to showcase how it will offer the Nigerian sports fans one of the widest lines of sports betting as well as odds on the world of cinema, music, politics and other areas of life. Commenting on how this new license will allow the brand to work more with local partners, the 1xBet team explained: “1xBet has decided to establish ourselves in Africa as we feel we have something valuable to offer the African betting market including players and affiliates. With over 1000 events offered daily across more than 60 sports, the 1xBet experience is an exciting world of betting enjoyment. We also have a great selection of online games. All this means that everyone can find viable options to make money.   We want to give everyone who is legally able to place bets access to earning potential and look forward to finding interesting new partners in Nigeria with like-minded goals.”

The newly acquired National Licence by 1xBet has positioned the brand to legitimately operate in any part of the country, including in all the states and local government areas, broadening the company’s footprint across Africa. “In addition to Nigeria, on the African continent, we work in Ghana, Senegal, Uganda, DR Congo, Cameroon, Zambia, and Burundi. We have big plans for the region and consider Africa a very promising continent, where the number of fans of betting in general, and our company in particular, is constantly growing.”

Following headlines about betting on the continent in 2019, there is a renewed focus on responsible gaming across Africa, something which 1xBet is keen to drive forward with its unique position as one of the only full National Licence holders in Nigeria. “1xBet is a supporter of responsible betting,” the 1xBet team continued.   “We comply with the laws of each country in which we operate. Given that our license to work in Nigeria is valid until 2024, in the next five years we want to set new standards of betting culture. We will teach fans that with 1xBet they play according to simple and understandable rules that must be observed.

“In addition to the financial regulatory body’s transaction limit in Nigeria, and our concerted efforts to drastically reduce gaming addiction, we have also implemented a spending limit on our platform to further promote responsible gaming. Also, we ensure regular 1xBet attendance at various seminars of the regulatory authorities on responsible gaming.”

1xBet will be commencing its meetings with regulators and operators from Nigeria and other African countries at ICE London 2020, where the 1xBet team will be attending a dedicated ICE Africa networking breakfast as well as exhibiting on the show floor and delivering its expansion strategy in full.   “We have a strong presence in many countries spread over continents around the world, so there will be a lot to showcase at ICE London,” they said. In regards to Nigeria, we will be using our position as a National Licence holder to highlight the fact that we are a fully compliant brand in the sports betting industry.”

The 1xBet team concluded:  “Our intention at ICE London 2020 is to promote 1xBet as an operator who brings their same level of established excellence to Nigeria as well as other African countries. We will also promote 1xBet’s wide range of betting options to the African market and beyond whilst sharing our vision for 2020 and what exciting upcoming events and industry related news we have to offer. The thrust of our message will be that by joining 1xBet you will always be riding the crest of a wave.”

The world of online gambling has undergone a seismic shift in recent years, with players from all corners of the globe flocking to digital platforms for their gaming needs. From Finland to Latin America to the United States, online casinos have become a staple of entertainment, offering an unparalleled array of games and experiences. In this comprehensive exploration, we’ll delve into the unique characteristics, trends, and player preferences that define online casinos in three distinct regions: Finland, Latin America, and the United States. By dissecting the intricacies of each market, we’ll gain a deeper understanding of the global landscape of online gambling.

Finnish Online Casinos

A Beacon of Innovation and Efficiency Nestled in the heart of Scandinavia, Finland boasts a reputation for technological prowess and innovation, and its online gambling industry is no exception. Finnish online casinos, affectionately known as “pikakasinot,” have garnered attention worldwide for their streamlined and efficient approach to gaming. At the forefront of this innovation is the concept of online casinos without registration, a concept that has revolutionized the way players access their favourite games.

At the heart of Finnish online casinos’ success lies the integration of Trustly’s Pay N Play service, a groundbreaking payment solution that eliminates the need for traditional registration processes. With Pay N Play, players can make instant deposits and withdrawals directly from their bank accounts, bypassing the cumbersome registration forms and identity verification procedures typically associated with online casinos.

But it’s not just the convenience of Pay N Play that has propelled Finnish online casinos to the forefront of the industry. These platforms also prioritize player security, holding licenses from reputable regulatory authorities such as the Malta Gaming Authority and the UK Gambling Commission. Advanced encryption technology ensures that players’ sensitive information remains safe and secure, giving them peace of mind as they enjoy their favourite games.

In terms of game selection, Finnish online casinos offer a diverse array of options to cater to every taste and preference. From classic slots and table games to live dealer experiences and progressive jackpots, there’s something for everyone at these innovative platforms. And with generous bonuses and promotions on offer, players are incentivized to keep coming back for more.

Latin American Online Casinos

Embracing Diversity and Accessibility in Latin America, the online gambling landscape is as diverse as the cultures that inhabit the region. From the bustling streets of Brazil to the scenic vistas of Argentina, players across Latin America have embraced the convenience and accessibility of online casinos in droves. And much like their Finnish counterparts, Latin American online casinos without registration have emerged as a popular choice among players seeking instant access to their favourite games.

Known locally as “casinos sin registro,” these platforms offer a simplified gaming experience that resonates with players across the region. With no registration required, players can dive straight into the action, making deposits and withdrawals with ease using a variety of local payment methods.

One of the key advantages of Latin American online casinos is their commitment to catering to local tastes and preferences. From culturally-inspired slots and traditional table games to live dealer experiences that capture the essence of Latin American hospitality, these platforms offer a diverse array of gaming options that resonate with players on a personal level.

But it’s not just the games themselves that set Latin American online casinos apart; it’s also the way they prioritize player security and trust. By partnering with reputable payment providers and implementing robust security measures, these platforms ensure that players can enjoy their gaming experience with peace of mind.

American Online Casinos

Navigating a Complex Regulatory Landscape in the United States, the online gambling landscape is as complex and varied as the country itself. With regulations varying from state to state, navigating the legal framework can be a daunting task for both players and operators alike. However, despite these challenges, online gambling has continued to gain traction in the US, with several states legalizing and regulating online casino gaming in recent years.

While traditional registration processes are still common in many parts of the country, there are signs of a gradual shift towards online casinos without registration as the industry evolves. Platforms such as Rush Games and DraftKings Casino have begun to gain traction, offering players a streamlined and hassle-free gaming experience.

In terms of game selection, American online casinos offer a wide range of options to cater to every taste and preference. From classic slots and table games to innovative new titles and exclusive partnerships with leading software providers, there’s no shortage of excitement to be found at these platforms.

But perhaps the biggest draw of American online casinos is their commitment to player safety and security. With stringent regulations in place to protect players’ interests and prevent underage gambling, players can rest assured that they’re in good hands when they play at a licensed and regulated online casino in the US.

Conclusion

As we’ve seen, the world of online gambling is a diverse and dynamic landscape, with each region bringing its own unique characteristics and player preferences to the table. From the streamlined efficiency of Finnish online casinos to the cultural richness of Latin American platforms to the complex regulatory landscape of the United States, there’s something for everyone in the world of online casinos.

By exploring the intricacies of each market, we’ve gained valuable insights into the global landscape of online gambling and the factors that drive its continued growth and success. Whether you’re a casual player looking for some entertainment or a seasoned gambler seeking your next big win, online casinos offer an unparalleled gaming experience that’s sure to satisfy even the most discerning of tastes.

Rank Group announced as first live customer of DoTrust Complete

Department of Trust (dotrust.co.uk), the award-winning provider of financial risk assessments for safer gambling, has launched DoTrust Complete – the first dedicated platform offering end-to-end frictionless and enhanced financial risk checks to support all stages of the player journey.

The company also announced Rank Group plc, one of the UK’s largest online and land-based gaming operators, as the first live customer of the new service.

Gambling operators in the UK until now have had to rely on multiple providers to conduct financial risk, affordability, AML and other compliance and safer gambling assessments on their customers. This has led to complexity, cost and a poor player experience as well as significant regulatory penalties for poor execution. The challenge is set to increase following the UK government’s review of the Gambling Act which is likely to require more frequent vulnerability checks on players even at lower levels of spend which will require frictionless and accurate assessments.

With DoTrust Complete, operators can run all necessary checks in a single platform, including frictionless income and vulnerability tests using the best available public and proprietary data, much of which has not been deployed in the gambling industry before. Operators can even design their own risk methodology and gain full auditability of decisions to ensure proportionality and meet regulatory requirements.

Commenting on the new platform launch, Michael Byrne, DoTrust Chief Operating Officer, said: “We are delighted to officially launch Complete ahead of the expected change in regulation this year. Operators now have a reliable, comprehensive and industry-first service they can rely on to meet all current and future requirements. Complete reduces friction for customers and increases certainty and efficiency for operators.”

Liam Smith, Director of Customer Operations for Rank Interactive, commented: “Rank has always been at the forefront of consumer protection and are constantly seeking ways to improve our player experience within a safe environment. DoTrust Complete is the first tool we have found that has been specifically developed for gambling operators. The efficiency and degree of control which Complete gives is impressive and we are excited to leverage these capabilities in building our business.”
