Bet24’s live dealer software saw one lucky player walk away with €180,000 whilst playing roulette. The Maltese based casino handed over the bounty in two separate spins with the 13th spin of the wheel producing €100,000 – someone must have been really good this year. This was followed up 29 spins later with the remaining €80,000.
Kim Larsen, Manager of Bet24’s online casino commented, “Live Casino was launched in April of 2011 and we had, of course, seen winnings but never at this level up to this streak of luck.”
Most firms that are nimble enough to think logically about the casino business’s next step are heading towards the development of live casino studios. This includes both Betfair and Bodog, the latter of which is the market leader in terms of their current studio setup. An extensive construction process saw the studio debut back in August and being in Manila means that it’s at the centre of the fastest growing part of the casino business and global gaming industry, Asia.
Bodog’s live studio is particularly impressive in terms of the customization available and the fact that it has been rolled out across all of the firm’s global domains (Bodog.co.uk, Bodog.ca and Bodog.eu). That’s in addition to Bodog’s usual bevvy of scantily clad and beautiful looking birds.
eGaming Review’s Power Summit USA got underway yesterday at the Sanctuary Resort on Camelback Mountain, Scottsdale, Arizona in order to discuss how North American companies can work with their European counterparts for the best growth opportunities globally. The two-day summit that concludes today will consist of specific content designed to give North American firms all the tools required to run an online gambling industry business.
It’s also a valuable networking opportunity for all parties with golf and poker tournaments arranged alongside the inevitable sporadic outbreaks of drinkin’. Optimal Payments CEO Joel Leonoff speaks later today at the conference and commented, “We are proud to be sponsoring this industry-leading event and helping to raise the awareness of how payments and fraud solutions are a key part of the total package that gaming businesses need to consider in their online offerings. Optimal Payments has an established track record in providing more than just payments solutions to leading companies in this industry, and we look forward to working with new participants as the North American markets evolve over the next few years.”
