Tal Ron AffiliateCon Sofia

AffiliateCon Sofia has announced that it will host a ‘Mega Panel’ that will discuss the new industry landscape. Subjects covered will look at the ever-evolving regulatory environment, the growing impact of M&A activity, the pros and cons of outsourcing to Central and Eastern Europe, GDPR and of course, debating over what’s hot and what’s not.

Advocate, Notary and International Master of Gaming Law (IMGL) Tal Itzhak Ron from Tal Ron, Drihem & Co., Law Firm, will lead and moderate the panel discussion, which is expected to get pretty heated. Tal is internationally known as one of the leaders of the Financial, Crypto and Gaming online industries, working with all the biggest names in online finance and i-gaming.

The Mega Panel will consist of several industry executives, including Clare Wellard, the Chief Operating Officer of international firm Ihre Consulting. Since 2010, she has worked almost exclusively in the gaming industry and has extensive experience in affiliate management.

Additionally, Amir Mikay who is Co-Founder and CEO of Traffic Light Media and Tech Coin Group will be offering his opinions on the panel. Mikay has ten years of experience in the marketing and affiliation industries, working with leading companies in both the gaming and finance sectors.

Another speaker who will be joining the panel with years of knowledge and experience in the gaming and financial industries is Ray Shepherd, Senior Executive in UFX Group Business Development. Ray oversees introducing brokers, franchises and affiliates, making him the perfect addition to the panel.

And finally, is Assaf Stieglitz who is an entrepreneur at heart and a software engineer by degree. Involved in the online gaming industry since 2003, where he established odds1x2.com, Assaf has since launched PlayWiseCasino,com. Assaf is a frequent speaker at many conferences around the globe and likes to share his insights into the industry.

AffiliateCon Sofia is held over two days on the 15-16 May, setting a benchmark in affiliate networking and education. The landmark industry convention is free for affiliates to attend, and rather than being a trade show with big intimidating stands, it will provide a relaxed environment where selected high-profile brands will get the opportunity to discuss potential partnerships with a wide range of affiliates.

Better Collective becomes co-founders of new trade association, Responsible Affiliates in Gambling

 

World leading iGaming affiliate, Better Collective, co-founds new trade association, Responsible Affiliates in Gambling, that is established to promote the socially responsible marketing of gambling products and a safer gambling environment for consumers.

The three iGaming actors Better Collective, Oddschecker and Racing Post have launched the trade association, Responsible Affiliates in Gambling (RAIG), as they recognise the role affiliate marketing providers must play as part of wider industry initiatives in the UK to promote social responsibility and a safer gambling environment for consumers.

As a condition of membership of RAIG, each member will be subject to an annual social responsibility audit which will be conducted by Gambling Integrity. This audit is designed to ensure compliance with a range of existing statutory and non-statutory regulation as well as any additional measures which might be adopted over time. These will include:

  • The UK Code of non-broadcast Advertising and Direct and Promotional Marketing (the ‘CAP’ code)
  • The UK Code of Broadcast Advertising (‘BCAP’ code)
  • The Gambling Industry Code for Socially Responsible Advertising
  • Any relevant guidance issued by regulators such as the Advertising Standards Authority; Gambling Commission; and Information Commissioners’ Office on affiliate marketing requirements.

Jesper Søgaard, CEO of Better Collective, said: “For Better Collective, compliance and responsible gambling have always been core focus areas due to our commitment and vision to empower iGamers. I am therefore extremely proud that we become co-founders of RAIG which I believe can be a game-changer for compliance standards for affiliates and which will ensure a lift of the entire industry in terms of responsible behaviour for the benefit of the users”.

Clive Hawkswood has been appointed inaugural chairman of RAIG.

Good Game Limited offloads esports news site

 

The affiliate company behind Bojoko.com sells Eurheilu.com to Esports Media Solutions for an undisclosed sum

 

Good Game Limited, the online casino affiliate organisation behind popular comparison site Bojoko.com, has sold its esports news asset Eurheilu.com for an undisclosed sum.

The site has been purchased by Esports Media Solutions and will allow Good Game to reinvest and fully focus on driving growth in Bojoko.

Eurheilu.com was launched in early 2016 and is updated daily with news, features, interviews, streams and guides about the thriving esports industry.

It has proved particularly popular among enthusiasts in Finland and other Nordic countries as esports continues to grow rapidly across the region.

Aleksi Halsas, co-founder of Esports Media Solutions, said: “Our Eurheilu.com acquisition supports our strategy in Finland well and we are extremely excited about the opportunities it presents us.”

The sale of Eurheilu.com comes a little over a year after Good Game sold its network of Finnish online casino comparison sites to XLMedia for a total consideration of €15 million.

Good Game now operators just one site, Bojoko.com, which is being positioned as the Trip Advisor of the online casino world.

Bojoko, which was launched in 2017, allows operators and suppliers to upload their own listings with players able to leave their own ratings and reviews.

It has proved a hugely popular concept with operators, suppliers and players alike, with more than 320 casinos and suppliers listed to date.

Joonas Karhu, chief business officer at Good Game Limited, said: “We have spent the past few years building Eurheilu.com into a popular and thriving esports information site and community.

“But as we continue to invest more time and resources into establishing Bojoko as the most popular online casino comparison site in the UK and beyond, the time was right to sell the brand.

“We are thrilled that Esports Media Solutions will be running the site moving forwards as their passion and expertise will take it to the next level.”
