Welcome to I-Gaming Forum 2013

When we launched I-Gaming Forum back in 2009, Scandinavia was already one of the leading regions of the world in terms of broadband internet penetration, disposable income and online gaming market penetration. What we could not foresee then was how the regulatory framework would evolve over a period of 5 years. When we gather in April 2013 in Stockholm, Denmark will have already liberalized its online gaming market for more than a year. So what are the key findings of the first year? Will it inspire other Scandinavian countries? Is there a model to follow?

Our 2013 agenda features a series of gripping panel discussions from leading industry stakeholders, and at the same time gives you a great opportunity to have your say and network with your peers.

I-Gaming Forum is celebrating its 5th birthday in 2013 and we have 5 excellent reasons why you should not miss this year’s event:

  • • Facilitate market entrance and increase your ROI by taking advantage
  • of regulatory developments in leading European markets
  • • Get a unique insight into how the market is evolving – M&A,
  • consolidation and funding trends
  • • Strengthen your market stake by understanding the latest trends
  • in mobile and social gaming
  • • Network, network, network – this is the place where the market meets

Join us at the prestigious Grand Hotel of Stockholm on 10-11 April!

I-gamingforum recomends: A new era for regulated European i-gaming

2012 marks the beginning of a new era in the European online gambling sector.

For the first time, revenues generated from domestically regulated markets will account for the clear majority of total i-gaming revenues in Europe.

Research undertaken by Global Betting and Gaming Consultants for its Interactive Gambling Report found that in 2011, 51.3 per cent of revenues were from domestically regulated markets. This figure will jump to 60.1 per cent in 2012 as several key markets launch new i-gaming licensing regimes.

GBGC director Lorien Pilling cites 2012 as a defining year for i-gaming in Europe. ”Low gaming taxes are being replaced by high taxes; single licences are being replaced by the need for multiple licences. As a result, the high customer payouts that made i-gaming so attractive are being reduced too.”

Spain is due to launch its new licences this year while Denmark has already begun issuing licences with a 20 per cent tax on gross gaming revenues. Germany’s states are also planning some restrictive licensing of i-gaming under the new Interstate Gambling Treaty and Greece has plans for a 30 per cent gross profits tax for its domestic i-gaming licences, plus a withholding tax on players’ winnings.

I-gamingforum recomends: 2012 called a defining year for iGaming in Europe

Tougher regulatory conditions for online gaming will generate more revenue for European nations in 2012. But the higher fees and taxes will lead to lower payouts for players, says an Interactive Gambling Report. ”Low gaming taxes are being replaced by high taxes; single licenses are being replaced by the need for multiple licenses. As a result, the high customer payouts that made iGaming so attractive are being reduced too,” said Lorien Pilling, director of Global Betting and Gaming Consultants, which prepared the report.

i-gaming Forum 2011 Review by Rebecca Liggero, Calvin Ayre

The 3rd Annual iGaming Forum gaming conference has just finished up at the Grand Hotel in Stockholm, Sweden. This conference has traditionally attracted a senior (and extremely well dressed) crowd of Scandinavian online gaming professionals including operator CEOs, regulators, politicians, monopolies and Swedish media and this year was absolutely no different with close to 100 attendees.

The conference was based around a day of panels moderated by Michael Caselli and led by experienced individuals hand selected from the group of professionals mentioned above. Tables were set up in an elegant room in the Grand Hotel, networking breaks took place every few hours and dinner was organized for all delegates as an additional opportunity to socialize in a more relaxed environment.

CEO’s Pontus Lindwall of Betsson, Henrik Persson of Betsafe, Anders Invges of PAF and Thomas Petersen of Bet24 made up the popular CEO panel that kicked off the conference to a great start. Lindwall was quick to point out that despite the physical proximity, the Scandinavian market is quite fragmented and each government is going their own way in terms of tackling online gaming regulation. Seeing as many Scandinavian players look to companies licensed in foreign jurisdictions for the best offers and bonuses, Lindwall is pushing for Scandinavian countries to adopt a licensing system that would allow local operators to compete against those with a foreign license. Persson agreed and added that the license should include all games, and all four CEOs agreed that it is expensive to get into the Scandinavian market and operators who are looking for a piece of the pie should partner with an established company rather than going at it alone. read more

Swedish gaming monopoly controversy

The EU Commission has issued several warnings with regards to the Swedish gaming monopoly over the past years. Back in 2006, for example, the Swedish government has been warned for not following its own monopoly policy, following Svenska Spel (Swedish Game)’s decision to establish themselves in the Baltic market. More recently, at the Riksdagens & Depatmented website, there was a call for the need to change the Swedish regulatory landscape.

Gaming is certainly a controversial topic in Sweden, where a great focus is devoted to preventing abuse by gaming companies and ensuring social needs are accounted for. Would you like to learn more about the “Future Outlook: Swedish Gaming Policy” and the EU Commission views, following the recent elections?

At the Third Annual I-gaming Forum 2011, we will have not only the presence of all gaming boards in Scandinavia, but also a unique debate on this matter. We are glad to announce that Annika Qarlsson, Member of Parliament, Centerpartiet and Torbjörn Björlund, Member of Parliament, Vänsterpartiet will be amongst the panelists.

I look forward to seeing you in April!

Kind Regards,

Estimates indicate the Spanish gaming industry profit levels have reached Euro 315 in 2010

A recent report by the Spanish Association of Internet Bettors (AEDAPI) estimates the online gaming industry profits to have reached Euro 315 million in 2010, exceeding by 19% from 2009 and showing a continuous growth in the industry by 20% per annum. It is no surprise that online gaming operators across Europe are turning their eyes to the region.

Spain is one step closer to opening the market for online gaming, having approved a draft law in February. If all is according to plan, the European Commission could be sanctioning the law by June or July. But uncertainty remains on, amongst others, the specific rate of taxation which certainly affects the business plans of operators.

If you are looking at new markets to expand such as Spain, The Netherlands, Denmark, you cannot miss the next I-Gaming Forum 2011, where you may meet Juan Carlos Alfonso, Co-ordination Director for Loterias y Apuestas del Estado, one of our panelists.

We are fast closing applications for the event, which has 85% of state monopoly members booked already.

I look forward to seeing you in April!

I-gaming 2011 Market Outlook

I-gaming 2011 Market Outlook

As you know, a lot of expectation is being built about the 2011 market landscape to i-gaming business. Several key countries are in discussions about new models and increasingly liberal regimes which will bring unlimited opportunities to operators eager to conquer new market share and return on investments. Others have increased control over gaming and imposed new restrictions to the market players, which shall not be missed. Rather than digging around a myriad of sources and relying on “word-of-mouth” speculation, it is crucial to establish close contact with the regulators, policy makers and legal experts involved in the implementation of new laws and regulations.

Adding to that, operators are following carefully new business models, M&A and other consolidation alternatives as means to strengthen their stake at the European i-gaming market. For the more conservative players, player retention strategies and strategic commercial partnerships seems to be the path to generate the necessary level of revenue to survive the 2011 challenges. Regardless of your particular choice of business model, as an operator, it is essential to understand the dynamics of the post-credit crunch i-gaming market to capitalize your investments!

Check out Calvin Ayres afterparty pictures

The evening began with dinner for all conference attendees at Café Opera, a venue that was reserved all night just for the iGaming Forum crowd. After dinner and wine, the poker tournament began and the non poker players of the crowd stuck around the main room, enjoyed our very own DJ, shamelessly flirted with the Ayre Heads, and sucked down cocktails until another plan was formed.

Seeing as the B2B Scandinavian side of the igaming business is a bit less “rowdy” than the, well, lets just say “affiliate side of the business”, the privately rented out Café Opera was a bit on the tame side for those who are not poker enthusiasts. No harm done though, the non-poker players and dedicated boozers simply got shitfaced at Café Opera until the tourney was over and then moved the party to another location in Stockholm with the potential to cause some serious trouble. The nightspot of choice was Soap Bar, a nice little intimate location including some nice little Swedish honies which the igaming men certainly appreciated. Michael Caselli, the man, the legend, almost got kicked out of the bar by the big black bouncer when he decided to lift me up and spin me around in the middle of the bar, but he was thankfully able to talk his way out of it. Other shenanigans of note include Steve Cook who was quite happy to display his very smooth dance moves for all to see, birthday boy Michael Whittam who attempted to yank all the industry girls out onto the dance floor along side of him, and the Ayre Heads who showed up after hours in their hot outfits and greatly succeeded in charming the male dominated crowd as usual.

Much to everyone’s dismay, Soap Bar kicked us out at 3am, and for those who wanted more, a certain someone spearheaded a journey to a “titty bar”, but this is where the story ends my friends- you’ll just have to use your imagination for the rest.

i-gaming licenses turn Estonia “Monaco of Scandinavia”

By Eric Andersson for i-Gamingforum.com | Posted on March 4, 2010

Estonia, the successful Nordic country that has seen a leapfrog economic development since autonmy from the Soviet Union, recently legalized online gaming. A population just short of 1,5 million, numerous expatriated professionals and a location connecting the mature Scandinavian economies and the cash rich Russian Federation have fast tracked a country well on its way to be on par with Western Europe. With 25% of Estonians of Russians descent it is no great leap of mind to assume Estonian operators draws revenue from the Russian Federation. Russia banned gambling in June 2009, and customers move with the speed of light on the internet. 

An already established Estonian license model makes for excellent tax revenue possibly next turning Estonia into a virtual Monaco of Scandinavia. The Estonian government has taken the next step to secure even greater tax revenue.

Today Estonian citizens (including any Russian speaking players) are allowed to play on Estonian-based platforms. In the next step the Government is opening up to international operators in 2011. Numerous applications should be expected as the scope of potential business is tremendous.

Scandinavian Affiliate Super Summit 2009 – Smashes and Exceeds expectations

The Scandinavian Affiliate Super Summit (25th-27th November) launched with the glitz and glamour that Scandinavian gaming is, held in the Berns Hotel, attendees kick-started the 3 days with a cocktail reception, hosted by Bet24.

The whole conference went down as an event to remember with over 248 delegates in attendance over the course of the three days, 10 exhibitors, 8 strategic conference sessions, 3 exuberant networking parties and VIP guests galore. The cleaners are still trying to piece the Café Opera venue back together after a successful visit from the party going affiliates.  The event warmed-down at the world famous IceBar; where everyone nursed their hangovers with a chilled vodka.

“I think SASS was a great” Richard De Waal – Referback “There were plenty of new affiliates for us to meet, the atmosphere was great, and the host city was fantastic. This was the perfect opportunity for us to make grow our business. We will definitely come back next year”

The SASS is the first ever gaming affiliate show to be held in Scandinavia, and was widely received as a very successful location for affiliate events in the future.  Project Manager Michael Whittam said “It’s very difficult to create a launch event in affiliate marketing, the affiliate conference market is very competitive, our success has been down to one simple winning formula; ensuring we attract the top affiliates that are looking to drive major traffic and providing them with top level conference content.”

“Whilst we know that our delegates are largely here to network, we always aim to provide everyone with something new and unexpected.” Alex Pratt, Head of Events for iGB Events, added “The location attracted huge attention; and this event has definitely established itself on the i-Gaming Calendar.

The Scandinavian Affiliate Super Summit team looks forward to welcoming you back next year with a bigger and better venue and an expected 500 attendees!
