SiGMA 2018 Launches in 2 Weeks

 

As a well-established staple on the iGaming calendar, it is unsurprising that the interest from the iGaming industry has been intense. In 2 weeks time the super-show plans to welcome 12,500 guests, including 400 sponsors and exhibitors and 200 speakers through its doors. To keep pace with demand, the sold-out MFCC floor space has been expanded and an extra day added to the Summit dates – SiGMA will run from the 28th until the 30th of November and will be held at the MFCC, Ta’ Qali.

SiGMA will also be bolstered by a glamorous evening on the 27th – the iGaming Awards will seat a 1000 guests and pay tribute to companies who are shaking up the industry in Malta. Elevating the charitable event is Her Excellency, Marie-Louise Coleiro-Preca, President of Malta and tenor Joseph Calleja, one of the most recognisable faces in the opera world.

Following the black-tie event is a Poker Tournament. Held at the Portomaso Casino, the friendly-competitive event will offer an evening of relaxed networking to delegates looking to unwind before the start of the Summit.

SiGMA Pitch will make a triumphant return, providing a space for innovative young start-ups to gain valuable exposure. Finalists will gain a unique opportunity to win a space on the expo floor, score valuable invites to networking events and reel in potential funding and mentoring from industry veterans.

Since its inception, the flagship show has evolved from a local event capitalising on an untapped niche of opportunity, to a global influencer on the iGaming world stage. If last year’s numbers are any prediction, 2018 is set to smash all previously held records, giving the company’s ambitions plenty of space to play out.

In keeping with the global theme, SiGMA 2018 will host 6 conferences and workshops, several of which will tackle the evolution of the industry from a broader perspective, with highlights including a focus on pan-African regulation and sports gambling in the USA.

Starting on the 28th of November, the Regulatory Conference will cover important aspects of Malta’s iGaming Act, as well as iGaming Law in a broader sense – including its influence on sister topics, such as AI. The Conference will feature prestigious speakers, such as Heathcliff Farrugia, CEO at the MGA, AI guru, Angelo Dalli, and an introduction from the Honourable Joseph Muscat, Prime Minister of Malta.

The first day of the show will also host a conference for Blockchain, with Mark Suwan, CEO of Blockchip taking the chair. Taking the panels to the next level is a line-up of elite guest speakers. Individuals such as Brock Pierce, an Advisor on Open Data Exchange and Joseph F. Borg, a Partner at WH Partners, will tackle complex issues, such as transparency and the right to be forgotten, blockchain investment and ICO regulation.

The second day of the Summit will see a further two conferences play out, the Conference for Payments, which is hosted by BitBay and the Conference for Affiliates and CMO’s, hosted by InternetVikings.

The Payments Conference also offers a global perspective; from building smoother transactions in Sub-Saharan Africa, to navigating the licensing regime in Scandinavia. Other highlights include a panel on banking the unbanked and a feature on AML and social responsibility.

Chairing the Conference for Affiliates and CMOs is Richard Vikström, Founder at InternetVikings, who will also offer a welcome note and a talk on SEO brand protection. Other interesting topics include Humanism in Technology and a panel discussion on the Italian ban on marketing for gaming.

Kicking off the last day of the conference is the DGaming Conference, which offers an overview of a decentralised gaming industry, as well as creative AI solutions to optimise language. Hosted by DGaming Media, the conference will feature prominent speakers such as John Kamara, Director of Development at Global Gaming Media, and Marc Lesnick, President at Ticonderoga Ventures.

Rounding off the Summit is the final conference of the day – the eSports Conference, chaired by Ivan Filetti, Head of Business Development at Gaming Malta.

The Summit calendar will also provide delegates with plenty of opportunity for networking and entertainment. A fiercly competitive Hackathon has already drawn interest from developers through a generous $50k prize pool, whilst lavish dinners will feature throughout SiGMA. The Summit will also host a Crypto Cruise, and a phenomenal Closing Night event. A decadent Champagne Brunch brings things to a close on the 1st of December.

There can be no doubt that SiGMA has been a boon to the Maltese economy, operating in tandem with local growth and encouraging business to flourish on the islands. We’re not resting on our laurels however, SiGMA 2018 is all set to carry on this tradition of quality and, as Malta continues to position itself as a haven for industry, can expect to continue outgrowing their limitations.

ThePOGG.com – ADR Service Passes $2.5 Million Returned to Players

ThePOGG.com – ADR Service Passes $2.5 Million Returned to Players

 

ThePOGG.com is delighted to announce that their complaints service has reached another milestone – as of Friday the 6th of September 2019 – the service has returned over $2,500,000 to players!

Almost exactly 2 years ago to the day, after over 4 years of operation, we reported that we’d recovered $1,000,000 of player funds – so it is clear to see that year-on-year our service is growing significantly. We are experiencing a huge increase in the number of players making use of our service and this is reflected in the fact that our total funds returned to players has increased by over 150% in the last two years. On average we have returned $62,500 per month in the last 2 years – over double what was returned per month at our previous landmark – a figure of $28k per month. Similarly, in September 2017 we had logged 1033 closed complaints and 58 open complaints; in Sept 2019 (so far) we are logging almost 2500 closed complaints and 159 open complaints – so this figure too is growing!

Beyond simply the cumulative amount returned to players, we can also iterate that in the last two years we have returned on average $2054/day to the playing community (more than double the per day value at the $1,000,000 mark). For the duration of the lifetime of our service this means that on average, by taking the time to submit a complaint to ThePOGG.com, the average player finds themselves $1041 better off as a result of doing so.

Our Complaints Manager has a wealth of experience in this field and as such understands the minutiae of the issues players may find themselves experiencing. The quality of the service has been recognised by the Malta Gaming Authority, who currently approve ThePOGG.com as an Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) provider. Under this remit ThePOGG.com currently provides ADR provision to close to a hundred MGA licensed operators.

The regulatory based remit that ThePOGG’s complaint service fulfils makes it unique within the affiliate sector complaint management outlets, reflecting our service’s experience and professionalism.

It has been a privilege to assist so many players recovering funds to date and we sincerely hope that the money returned has made a significant difference to the lives of the player’s and their families. We take great pride in having helped so many people and look forward to helping many more in the years to come.

Finally we want to remind players of our free Responsible Gambling app BetBlocker. If you are struggling to control your gambling or feel that it may be time to take a break, BetBlocker put the control back in your hands by allowing you to restrict your device from accessing over 6.5k gambling websites.
