LeoVegas Invest in New Tech Hub in Warsaw Despite Its Products Being Unavailable in Polish Market

Published

on

 

The Polish marketplace is a strange territory for the iGaming industry. On the one hand, it has some of the most technically able and potentially brilliant European talent who has done much to develop highly successful video games like The Witcher and Cyberpunk. This skill set is highly prized in the world of online casinos, slots, and sports betting simulation games. On the other hand, the legislature has cracked down hard on the gambling industry since the election of The Law and Justice Party to power under the leadership of Andrzej Duda. While punters in the country can still place a wager on a variety of sports betting and esports sites, all online casinos in Poland are run by the state-owned company Totalizator Sportowy which operates Total Casino.

LeoVegas is an igaming company that creates online slots and other popular casino games. Founded by Gustaf Hagman and Robin Ramm-Ericson in 2011, they have become one of Europe’s leading mobile gaming and companies. They are headquartered in Sweden, and their shares are traded on the Stockholm Nasdaq exchange. They recently announced that they would launch a new tech hub in Poland. In addition, the company is looking to strengthen its technological development and innovation.

Poland has been seen for a long time as a good option for the outsourcing of IT. The country is regarded as an IT and startup powerhouse. The outsourcing sector comprises around 700 software development companies that employ more than 150,000 specialists. The Polish workforce has a reputation for a strong work ethic and is highly educated. Krakow and Warsaw are the established tech locations, and Gdansk is quickly emerging as the next hub. In addition, Katowice has established itself as the eSports capital of Europe by investing in events and infrastructure.

In 2020 Poland was recognized as one of the most startup-friendly countries in Europe. As a result, Poland is seeing significant venture capital spending, and €477 million were raised in 2020. Like Silicon Valley, tech innovators inspire each other, leading to breakthroughs and success. Tim Draper, a Silicon Valley venture capitalist, has said that Poland is a generation ahead of other European countries in understanding the potential of tech and the market system.

LeoVegas’ new Polish hub will see them join other international companies with already established offices or R&D operations in the country. They will join tech leaders such as Microsoft, Google, Amazon, and Uber. LeoVegas’ Warsaw facility will employ sixty developers. The investment in the central European country aims to accelerate the development of the next-generation platform.

The Polish engineers will work alongside the group’s existing teams based in Sweden, the UK, and the Netherlands. The main project of the Warsaw hub is the development of LeoVegas’ proprietary player account management (PAM) system. This system is called Rhino.

Rhino is used to control all player data, transactions, payment integrations, and games across LeoVegas’ extensive portfolio. It is understood that the new tech hub is a crucial element of the group’s strategy to maintain its position at the forefront of new technology and innovation.

Mattias Wedar, Chief Product & Tech Officer at LeoVegas Group, said,

“LeoVegas’ success, and the award-winning gaming experience that we give our customers, is driven by our innovative mindset and our proprietary platform Rhino. Our new hub in Warsaw is a key part of our strategy to stay at the forefront of innovation, new product development, and payments while offering a highly personalized experience to our customers. Our new hub will kickstart this next phase of development”.

The company is now on a recruitment drive to pick up the best talent in Warsaw. The irony is that the products that will be developed in Warsaw will continue to be unavailable to the staff based in Poland. Around a third of LeoVegas’ workforce is employed in technology and product development. MGM agreed to purchase LeoVegas earlier in the year to strengthen their European presence.

Casino Guru Releases New Tool to Help Players Find Best Casinos

Casino Guru Releases New Tool to Help Players Find Best Casinos

 

Casino Guru, a global source of information about online casinos and the biggest database of casino websites, is always looking to bring more value to its visitors. The brand-new Casino Selection Helper is a tool that aims to do just that by bringing a new way for players to pinpoint the best online casino based on their specific preferences.

The new tool works by asking players to answer three simple questions about their preferences related to casino bonuses, casino games, and age of the casino they would like to play at – choosing between new sites with modern features and established brands that have been around for quite some time. After answering these questions, they are presented with the best option for them, as well as two runners-up.

Maros Gasparik, Casino Guru’s Head of Content, commented on the new functionality: “Our database contains pretty much all available online casinos, which is a great feat, but it also presents a potential obstacle for some players because of choice overload. With hundreds or even thousands of casinos available to players from certain countries, it can be a haunting task for players to select the best one for them. We are always looking to make this process easier and guide players to the best option quickly and easily, and the new Casino Selection Helper is one of the things we hope can help them choose well and stay away from unscrupulous sites.”

Gasparik also added about the future of the new tool: “In the first stage of the project, we decided to include only three relatively simple questions based on visitor insights, which should be sufficient for most players. There are plans for further improvements of the selection process and additional questions to help players with more specific preferences; however, first we want to see how our visitors like the initial version.”

Apart from fine-tuning the new tool, Casino Guru plans to continue implementing further improvements aimed at optimizing their website, providing more value to its visitors, and helping create a safer and fairer gambling environment. This includes improving their global database of problem gambling help organizations, pioneering the world of responsible gambling tools via their Global Self-Exclusion Initiative, improving the processes in their Complaint Resolution Center so that they can help more mistreated players, and more.

SLOTS TEMPLE GETS LICENSED IN UK, FREE SLOTS SITE NOW OFFERING CASH PRIZES

SLOTS TEMPLE GETS LICENSED IN UK, FREE SLOTS SITE NOW OFFERING CASH PRIZES

 

Slots Temple is first affiliate to win UKGC licensing, allowing it to offer real-money prizes for slots tournaments

Free online slots platform Slots Temple has become the first affiliate site to be awarded a UK Gambling Commission licence. That’s good news for slots fans. It means the company can now legally give out cash prizes for winners of its free-to-play tournaments.

Slots Temple offers free casino games and tournaments to players over the age of 18, where they can compete against others to get to the top of the leaderboard and win prizes.
The platform hosts more than 10,000 slots from some of the world’s best casino games studios, including Push Gaming, Relax Gaming ReelPlay and 4ThePlayer. The difference is, Slots Temple does not take any stake money. All its slots are completely free to play, no catch.

Instead, the company generates affiliate revenues when players sign up to real-money online casinos by clicking through banner advertising, although there is no obligation to do so.
Until now, Slots Temple has been unable to offer real-money prizes, just merchandise. But now, players can play their favourite slots while competing to win cash prizes of up to £5,000.
As well as cash prizes, Slots Temple will be launching a range of new tournament formats. These include Turbo Tournaments, which run for a short time only, and Risk Tournaments, where players are given a fixed balance and can adjust their bet size on each spin.

Currently, tournaments run daily, as well as weekly and monthly, so there’s plenty of opportunity to win those points and work your way up the leaderboard.

Fraser Linkleter, Director at Slots Temple said: “It’s always great to achieve an industry first, and we’re proud to be the first affiliate site to receive UKGC licensing. Licensees are held to high regulatory standards, and we believe this demonstrates our long-held commitment to social responsibility. But above all, the licence adds excitement and value for our users, who get to compete for cash while paying nothing up front. And what’s not to like about that?”
