bet365 makes its US play through Empire New York alliance

Leading European online bookmaker bet365 has forged its first US-centric sports betting partnership with Nasdaq-listed gambling group Empire Resorts Inc.

Issuing a market update, bet365 enters a 20-year agreement with Empire, which will see the online betting group become lead digital and land-based sports betting services provider for the ‘Resorts World Catskills’ casino in upstate New York.

At present, Resorts World Catskills is one of only four commercial casinos properties operating within New York State, with the premises holding the closest proximity to Manhattan.

The Empire alliance sees bet365 gain a significant strategic foothold within New York, a jurisdiction predicted to become one of the state’s largest betting markets (dependent on pending regulation).

“Joining forces with bet365 positions Empire and our flagship Resorts World Catskills to lead a potentially enormous new market,” said Manny Pearlman, Executive Chairman of Empire Resorts, Inc.

bet365’s global expertise in effectively developing and executing world-class sportsbooks strongly complements Empire’s leadership in commercial casino operations in New York. This collaboration, which will enable Resorts World Catskills to be a leading destination for sports wagering in New York State, highlights our commitment to the continued growth of Resorts World Catskills, as well as our dedication to working with the best, most innovative pioneers in the industry to provide world-class gaming options.”

Developing its US profile, bet365 has set-up an affiliate subsidiary ‘Hillside NY LLC’ which will acquire up $50 million of Empire’s common stock in two tranches becoming the Nasdaq firm’s second largest investor.

Seeking to develop, New York’s leading gambling destination, Empire’s lead investor Kien Huat has committed to a purchasing $126 million of Empire convertible preferred stock, significantly boosting the enterprises working capital for future initiatives.

“This landmark agreement, which combines Empire’s gaming operating skill with our expertise in providing best-in-class online sports betting, allows bet365 to tap into what we believe will be one of the most significant online and sportsbook markets in the United States,” said Simon Betteley, President of Hillside NY LLC, a bet365 affiliate.

Profits soar as bet365 toasts significant growth

Leading online bookmaker bet365 has confirmed significant growth in its full-year accounts (12-month period to March 2018), recording a 26% increase in betting and gaming revenue to £2.719m.

The operator continued to benefit from its high-level sportsbook offering, specifically in-play betting which accounted for 77 per cent of its sports betting revenue, as well as this, mobile betting revenue rose 29% during the year

Operating profits for the firm elevated 33 per cent to £682.2m, whilst the firm reinforced its strong financial stature with £1.8 billion in cash on its balance sheet and a further £500 million of investments, with no debt.

EBITDA rose by 30% to £722 million (post software development), staff costs increased by 27% to £745 million (with 4236 employees, +10%) and software development rose 26% to £34 million.

Putting these results into context, Regulus Partners described how “bet365 has added roughly the equivalent of William Hill’s digital business in one year’s growth and is more than double the size of PPB’s digital business (including Australia) in revenue terms.

“Further, bet365’s reporting period is an ‘off-year’, with no Euros or World Cup, suggesting a return to strong growth in actives post period end, in our view.”

Additionally, the Empire partnership will allow bet365 to expand into the New York sports betting market, as the venue seeks to utilise the operator’s renowned sportsbook offering to thrive as the market potentially opens up in 2019.

According to market estimates by Eilers & Krejcik Gaming LLC, the New York State sports wagering market is expected to be the single largest market jurisdiction for sports betting in the United States other than California, with projections for more than $1 billion in annual revenues from sports betting within five years of legalisation.

The firm’s position as a leading UK operator has since been affirmed with the announcement of a recent deal with Empire Resorts to secure a New York sports betting licence, including an equity investment of up to $50 million.

Bet365 obtained details of punter’s account via Skrill in McCann case

* Skrill complied with order to reveal details of McCann’s account
• Megan McCann suing bookie for nearly £1m in unpaid winnings


embeded-image

A legal case from January 2017 which relates to Megan McCann’s long-running attempt to sue Bet365 for £1m appears to suggest co-operation between Britain’s biggest online bookmaker and the leading money-transfer company, Skrill.

McCann is suing Bet365 over a £25,000 bet on four races in Britain and Ireland which was placed and accepted via the firm’s website in June 2016. The winnings due on the bet amount to just over £975,000 but Bet365 has refused to pay out, or return the initial £25,000 stake, because it claims that the stake was provided by a “third party” in contravention of its Terms and Conditions (T&Cs).

A procedural hearing in the case is scheduled to take place at the high court in Belfast on Friday, with a full hearing expected later in the year. However, the Guardian has learned that in January 2017, Bet365 successfully applied for a ‘Norwich Pharmacol’ order against Skrill at the chancery division of the high court in London, requiring Skrill to reveal details of McCann’s account with the firm.

Skrill, an “e-wallet”, has millions of customers globally and is a popular way for punters to deposit money with online gambling sites. What is concerning, though, is that Skrill did not contest the application. As a result, the witness statement by a Bet365 lawyer which supported the application was not subjected to scrutiny and the application was rubber-stamped in chambers.

All online businesses which hold or transfer funds have extensive T&Cs to which customers must agree – usually via a tick-box – before they can open an account. The Data Protection Act also requires businesses to have a robust regime in place to protect clients’ private data.

Skrill said in a statement on Wednesday that “we take our data protection obligations very seriously and are satisfied we’ve met our obligations in this matter.” The statement continued: “We were entitled to comply with the order. Under the Skrill privacy policy which all customers agree to, we can disclose customer personal information to third parties in certain limited circumstances, including ‘in response to a subpoena, warrant, court order, or as otherwise required to by law’.

“We took legal advice at the time we were served with the order which affirmed our position. At the time we were served the order we were prevented from disclosing the content of the order to anyone else.”

The wording of Skrill’s privacy policy is certainly broad enough to cover their acquiescence with Bet365’s application.

Bet365 is involved in a civil action with McCann and the bookmaker applied for the order several months before the details of McCann’s winning bet became public, in July 2017. The fairness and legal status of Bet365’s T&Cs will be central to the proceedings when McCann’s case finally reaches a full hearing.

Sky Bet and bet365 launch Perform’s new Opta Fast Player Statistics Feed

Sky Bet and bet365 have been confirmed as the launch partners for the new real-time Fast Player Statistics Feed from Perform – a service powered by live sports data from Opta.

The two leading operators are the first to develop in-play products powered by the new feed, which supplies highly detailed in-play statistics for automated live trading and fast settlement of player and team prop markets.

Fast Player Statistics Feed also enables events such as shots, passes and tackles to be incorporated into bet-builders and request-a-bets for the world’s biggest football competitions and players, with detailed statistics updating live.

Sky Bet and bet365 are the first operators to offer their customers in-play products powered by the new fast player data. Both operators are ingesting the data and trading themselves. The choice is there, however, for customers to either trade themselves or use pricing providers accredited to use Opta data such as Sportcast and Banach.

Sky Bet recently launched an accompanying promotional campaign describing the service as ‘In-play, as you’ve never seen it before’.

John Harlow, SVP Betting Perform, said: ‘If you’re a bettor following in-play events like shots, tackles and passes, it’s like you’re watching an entirely new game.

“Goals are still the most important thing of course, but shots happen ten times as frequently as goals, and from a wider spread of players, so the new Opta feed has given a way for operators to create compelling new player-focused experiences that occur throughout the 90 minutes. It’s a new level of entertainment for their customers, even throughout a 0-0 draw.’

Andrew Ashenden, Perform Chief Commercial Officer, added: “Perform’s expertise in both fast data for in-play trading (via RunningBall) and deep data (via Opta) means we’re uniquely placed to create a fast player statistics service that operators, fans and bettors can trust. Fans and bettors the world over are accustomed to seeing data like shots, passes and tackles collected in line with Opta definitions across media and broadcast.

“A lot of work goes into the collection and preparing this detailed data for betting use and we’re delighted with how partners and now bettors have reacted. I’m proud of what our teams have built and the reaffirms Perform’s commitment to providing the sports industry with innovative, engaging and quality products that power exceptional fan and bettor experiences.”

bet365 backs Kubernetes to deliver optimal deployment environment

Continuing its principal stance on developing its in-house proprietary platform and operating systems, bet365 has chosen to back opensource architectural and containment programming language Kubernetes.

Widely considered as the world’s biggest volume sportsbook, bet365 is set to back its development and deployment teams with a new Kubernetes built ‘containerised production application’.

Engaging with Kubernetes, bet365 details that it will be able to engineer better-proofed production and deployment environments helping the betting firm’s product inventory prepare to match peak scale.

To date, bet365’s product development and deployment have been maintained by utilising standard cluster and operating authentication modules.

The Infrastructure and Development teams identified Kubernetes as the right set of technologies for the business following a detailed analysis and exploration of a range of different modern orchestration approaches and automation platforms.

Updating the market, James Nightingale, Principle Infrastructure Architect at bet365, stated that Kubernetes could be a game-changer for the firm’s future development processes.

“It promises to increase the speed at which we can spin up production environments, while at the same time, delivering a highly malleable deployment mechanism that will enable Sports Development to rapidly release code.”

“As bet365’s architecture has become more complex; we’ve noticed a growing grey area around responsibility for configuring the platform. There are elements of configuration and tuning that are deployed across the stack, which would traditionally be the remit of the Infrastructure team but need to be undertaken by product teams. The result is two teams touching the configuration items and this added complexity increases the potential for error.”
