King Billy Best Newest Casino 2017

There were a lot of firsts in the industry on the first of February 2018! AskGamblers, the trusted and well respected online casino portal, itself a many times awarded website, held its first ever AskGamblers Awards. In an impressive ceremony, pretty much reminding the EBU’s Eurovision Contest format, prizes were given in three categories, including Best New Casino.

They say that there can be only one King! And in the AskGamblers 2018 Awards, this was confirmed in this year’s Best New Casino category. Under fierce competition of the highest possible quality, with no less than 75 new casinos participating and with a lot of suspense until the last moment, King Billy Casino came first, winning the hearts of both the judges and the public.

Vladimir Harkusha, King Billy Casino CEO, commented on the news: “A milestone for the Kingdom and a day of joyous celebration for us all! I want to thank the whole King Billy team for doing the extra mile that has brought this fantastic result to us, as well as all the players who voted for us. We thank them from the bottom of our hearts! But we do not stop here. As they say, it is easier to get to the top than it is to stay there. So, all of us are ready for the next challenges and we are determined to keep the King where he deserves to be: Always at the top!”.

Esports Entertainment Group Signs Affiliate Marketing Agreements With 14 Esports Teams

 

Esports Entertainment Group, Inc., a licensed online gambling company with a specific focus on esports wagering and 18+ gaming, is pleased to announce Affiliate Marketing Agreements with 14 additional esports teams as the Company continues to ramp up affiliate marketing activities in support of its launch of vie.gg, the world’s first and most transparent esports betting exchange.

The addition of these 14 esports teams brings the total number of esports team affiliates to 190 since the Company’s first announcement on April 5th, signifying widespread adoption of VIE’s favourable P2P wagering in which an esports fan always wins, as opposed to pitting fans against the “house” where the odds are heavily stacked against esports fans.

To this end, the Company is pleased to announce the addition of pool betting to VIE.gg.  Pool betting is a further extension of our well received P2P model, which allows groups of opposing fans to wager against each other when their teams go head to head. This is especially attractive to the fan bases of smaller esports teams and is anticipated to be very successful in 2019.

NEWEST ESPORT TEAM AFFILIATES BRINGS PENETRATION INTO SOUTH EAST ASIAN MARKET

After significant expansion in Europe, South America and Central America, the addition of today’s esports teams represents a significant geographical expansion as they represent our first 11 Asian esports team partners as follows:

 Nepal: 8
• Vietnam: 2
 Bangladesh: 1

Asia represents a significant portion of the global esports market and the Company anticipates further penetration into Asian markets in 2019.

Grant Johnson, CEO of Esports Entertainment Group, stated, “I want to welcome all of our new esports team partners and especially those from Asia. The region has a huge esports fan base and we look forward to working closely with these teams as they engage with their fans at home and around the globe.”

How the Rise of In-App Purchases is Influencing the Mobile Gaming Industry?

How the Rise of In-App Purchases is Influencing the Mobile Gaming Industry?

The gaming industry captured the minds of users during 2000s, and now it generates large profits – almost $138 billion in 2018. Developers and operators must be happy about the industry showing growth in revenue of 13.3% compared to 2017.
Following the trend, the mobile gaming market is performing even better. The 25.5% growth means that this sector generates more than a half of a total income (51%). Console and PC segments are nearly equal, having 25% and 24% respectively. There are a number of reasons for mobile games blooming, including in-app purchases.

The freemium spirit
In general, in-app purchases stand for the ability of mobile applications to sell products or services, either virtual or real. Developers invented different approaches to integrating them using various types of apps, features, and interfaces. For instance, there are branded catalogs which sell goods through applications. But in-app purchases are way more typical for free-to-play games.
There is a freemium model of games. Combining features of both free and premium projects, these are completely free downloadable applications with integrated purchases. Owing to this approach, developers earn money with smaller deals inside the app instead of one-time payments. Some of the freemium apps offer simple ads disablement, while others provide unique in-game content. Gambling apps also follow this trend – they offer additional features for money, as well as provide different bonuses for such purchases listed on CasinoBonusCheck.com.

Evolution of mobile games
Now, let’s focus on the influence of freemium games growing in popularity. Experts from Scientific Revenue claim that developers move towards commercial sophistication. This trend is typical for projects that rely on micropayments.
To understand how freemium models affect mobile gaming, remember that they change the focus, moving sales from websites or online retailers like Amazon to games themselves. This way, developers can control the process, providing various offers with flexible prices, sales, and promotions.

Here are some of the current trends of the gaming industry:

  • Multiple points of sale. While premium games are sold on app markets, freemium products can use coins stores, popups with offers, and ubiquitous ads.
  • Various in-game offers. There may be unique daily or weekly sales, additional content, in-game currency, and so on.
  • Annuities. These are unique offers, valid during a certain period.
  • Live Operations. Thanks to in-app purchases, developers can focus on adding new stuff even after the game was launched. They include downloadable content and special promotions dedicated to specific events or major updates.

As small payments are really flexible, developers can easily modify them, trying to reach the maximum engagement. Analysts evaluate the efficiency of in-game content sales and decide whether it’s better to add advertisements or focus on unique offers.

Consequences of the freemium rise
So far as it’s clearer how in-app purchases set trends, we can think about positive and negative consequences. Note that there is no agreement among experts regarding this.

The good side
Ideal freemium games sell cosmetic changes only. Another approach features different types of content but includes an option to unlock them without paying real money. For example, Temple Run offers various enhancements which are available without extra expenses.
Decent freemium projects should focus on improving players’ experience by introducing new content. This is more typical for PC and console games where users can buy new visual styles for characters, unlock extra items and locations.
Free-to-download projects attract way more users who realize that they can easily dive into the game. Also, game providers can focus on improving the single product by implementing Live Operations rather than designing numerous sequels.

The bad side
The modern world is strongly focused on money. That’s why the majority of freemium games turn into pay-to-win or pay-to-play projects:

  • Pay-to-win. Players can buy in-game stuff to become more powerful and beat opponents.
  • Pay-to-play. Players can evade time limits and prolong the game process with in-app purchases.

In pursuit of revenue, developers focus less on improving the game itself. Many freemium projects create nothing new, simply offering benefits for premium players. This leads to users realizing they can simply pay and win instead of improving skills or building strategies, which kills the thrill of gaming.
The majority of mobile projects push pay-to-play or pay-to-win styles because it’s profitable now: Clash of Clans or Fruit Pop, just to name a few. It’s much worse for the industry when well-thought series like Dungeon Hunter follow such trends.

Future of in-app purchases
Freemium model works well for game developers as it allows expanding the audience thanks to free downloads and earning more money thanks to engagement strategies. Gamers are free to try different products and decide whether they deserve further investments.
It seems clear that mobile games will expand, generating more revenues compared to PC and console sectors. In-app purchases will definitely grow in popularity as well. Probably, companies will find new ways of implementing this feature, somehow different from pay-to-win and pay-to-play options. Eventually, it all depends on end users as they create the demand.
