Sports Fans Can Pick Player Matchups from Ligue 1, EPL, Serie A, Bundesliga and La Liga

 

Resorts Digital Gaming – the interactive arm of Resorts Casino Hotel Atlantic City, LLC – today announced the addition of European soccer matchups to its Daily Fantasy Sports site, FastPick.com. European football fans throughout New Jersey can now choose their favorite match-ups within Ligue 1, Serie A, EPL, Bundesliga and La Liga leagues.

European soccer has grown a massive following in the United States and we’re thrilled to give these fans a chance to have some skin in the game for the first time ever,” said Ed Andrewes, president of EA Gaming Consultancy Company, lead consultant to Resorts Digital Gaming. “Since launching just a few weeks ago, we’ve changed the Daily Sports Fantasy game in a bold way. As we push into the fall, we’ll be adding even more major league sports, including football, hockey, and basketball. Stay tuned.

Introduced to the New Jersey market in July 2017 by the same team behind a number of regulated New Jersey online casinos, FastPick has turned the industry on its head by making Daily Fantasy Sports simpler and more accessible. Instead of competing against other sports fans and having to contend with sharks, math experts, and serious Daily Fantasy Sports professionals, FastPick members compete against the house.

Members are invited to pick anywhere from three to 10 player-vs-player matchups. The more picks on an entry slip, the higher the potential payout — up to $100,000. If all picks on an entry slip come through with more Fantasy Points Per Game (FPPG), the FastPick member wins.

The site initially launched with Major League Baseball matchups. In the coming weeks and months, FastPick is expected to add NFL football, NBA basketball, and NHL hockey in time for the start of each respective season.

FastPick is currently only available to sports fans in New Jersey. According to Andrewes, Resorts Digital Gaming is looking at expanding FastPick to additional markets in the near future.

Is Investing in Online Gambling Still Viable?

Published

It is not hard to realize why many have noticed the online gambling industry when it comes to investments. With growth over 224% in the US, it is hard to miss such a boom. But, many people question if investing in online gambling is still viable or has the train passed for the biggest winners.

The answer mainly depends on if the investor is planning to get rich quick or to establish him or herself in the industry. For the former, regretfully the peak has already passed if doctors and governments are to be trusted.

But, if you want to make a high-quality business that will bring regular growth and pay regular dividends, the so-called iGaming industry is the place to be right now. Even if the growth of the market slows down, it will not stop.

This is because the three main comparative advantages of online gambling will still be present even after people are allowed to visit brick and mortar establishments:

  1. Low regular overhead
  2. Access to global markets
  3. Ensured advantage

And the last point might be the most important if you are a concentrated investor. The superior stability of online gambling compared to regular casinos makes it much easier to plan your business, as well as borrow against the company.

Don’t Expect 2020 to Repeat

Investing now and expecting to triple your investment by this time next year would be very unwise. While substantial growth is possible, some normalization of the curve is to be expected.

By all accounts, a vaccine against the current pandemic is expected to arrive in early 2021, with the effects taking in by the spring of next year. This will mean that fewer people will spend time indoors, thus less time gaming on phones, tablets, and computers.

Still, most of the current user base is expected to remain and new users will join in as the word of mouth spreads globally. This makes a perfect chance for someone, especially if offering niche-specific services, to swoop in and fill that market.

Enough Players for Everybody

There is no territorial competition when it comes to online gambling. With the number of players entering and the demand for online gambling rising, the competition is very fair and very open between casino operators. This makes a very relaxed atmosphere if you are a new investor in the industry. Of course in some markets like Australia the players spend more on average than in markets like Romania so competition there is a bit more saturated.

But, keeping players on your platform as well as standing out will be difficult. Finding modes to increase your offering and improve your services will be crucial if you want to remain relevant and growing.

High-Entry / Low-Maintenance

With some new legislation that will be affecting both Malta and Curacao, the industry will probably become even cleaner. But, the licenses will become more expensive, which may dissuade smaller investors from chipping in.

Namely, the old Curacao license, usually taken out by new operators, will now cost roughly $120.000, which is a steep increase from the $35.000 which was the price so far and will be until January 1st, 2021.

But, for those who have the funds, this is where major expenses end and where income begins. As the costs for operations, security, services, and technical support all scale with the level of business, you will rarely find yourself bleeding funds in any way.

Generally, if you can make an arrangement with game developers for pay-to-play terms, you can have a very secure income with minimal expenses and only a basic payroll staff.

New Curacao License

While still being valued as a license that ensures trust and safety from the operator, Curacao has been seen as the ‘second-best’ for a very long time. This is because the rules for obtaining, as well as oversight, was much more relaxed than for the Malta GC license.

But, with the new deal made between Curacao and the Dutch authorities back in Europe, the value and price of this license will rise quite a bit.

For those who had the papers this year, the ~$85.000 increase won’t be an issue, but it might be for new operators looking to open an online gambling business in 2021.

Malta is the Gold Standard

A license provided by the Malta Gaming Commission is still the golden standard when it comes to online gambling. The rules now planned by Curacao have been enforced in Malta since 2009, and even new players are familiar with the significance of having such a document.

But, for many operators, this type of clearance is not necessary. If you don’t want to market towards EU players and don’t plan on predatory tactics in the first place, you may use the Curacao license and save some money initially.

Later, when you have your business established and your investment relatively secure, you can always take the Malta license as well and try to reel in some bigger whales that are hiding all over the world.

The Easiest Casino Games For Newbies

Published

If you someone new to online casinos–which means, you don’t have any experience in playing in a land-based casino either–you may be surprised with how many games you can play online through your computer or mobile device. For someone who may have very little to no idea at all, the long list of playable games can be a bit overwhelming and may even be discouraging for some. However, it should not be like that.

Before you go and choose among the long list of online casinos out there, it would be a wise choice for you to have at least a plan on which games you go to first. Ideally, you would not want to go big on the complicated and complex games like sitting at a poker table or rolling it high on other card games. As a newbie, the best route for you to go is to play on the easiest games first, before moving on to the harder ones.

With that in mind, here are some of the easiest casino games you can play that are all newbie-friendly.

Slots

Slots is the classic favorite of a lot of people playing in a casino, whether it is on a land-based one or an online betting site, and it goes for a very good reason. This is because slots are one of the simplest, if not the simplest casino games to play.

All you need to do to play slots is to choose your game, pull the lever (or if you are playing online, push the button), wait for the spinning symbols to stop, and hope that you will get a winning combination.

However, although slots can be a good stepping stone for newbies who may be just “testing the waters,” it is not a good game to play long-term, as the odds are stacked against you and there is no real way for you to play strategically and at least increase your chances of winning.

Roulette

Roulette, in its many variants, is yet another one of the simplest games in a casino. Unlike slots, there a system to playing roulette, although it is still easy to learn and can be understood even by complete newbies in only a matter of minutes.

In roulette, a ball is thrown into the spinning wheel (the roulette), and all you have to do is make a bet on where you think it would land once the wheel stops spinning. You can bet on a specific number, on a block of numbers, or on a color where it would land. Each type of bet, of course, has its corresponding profit margin.

Baccarat

To non-gamblers, a game of baccarat may look to be a complicated one that involves a lot of counting and mathematical skills. However, the truth is it is not. It is so simple that you can play it without having any knowledge of it at all.

In baccarat, the mechanics are simple. The dealer (banker) gives the player two cards and two cards themselves as well. Now, the player would be which set–the player or the banker–has a card combination that is closest to the number nine. While there are three available bets–the player, banker, or a tie bet–the most ideal bet is to just always bet on the player.

Final thoughts

Once you get the hang of these games, you can either stick to playing them or if your think you are ready enough, start moving on to the more complicated games. Either way, gamble at your own pace and do not forget to be a responsible player at all times.
