Aristocrat and Aspire latest to provide Covid-19 updates Casino & games 18th March 2020 | By Daniel O’Boyle Topics: Casino & games Finance Tech & innovation Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Email Address AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Gaming machine supplier Aristocrat Leisure and platform provider Aspire Global have both issued updates on how the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) is affecting their business.Aristocrat opted to withdraw its outlook statement for 2020 due to “softer demand” as casinos across the world close to reduce the likelihood of the virus spreading.The business said it has been putting mitigation measures in place for months, as the virus has been affecting its Asian business for some time.Aristocrat also said that it is putting risk management and mitigation plans into place, so that the business may “emerge from the challenges caused by COVID19 as quickly and strongly as possible”.Aspire, meanwhile, said it is “carefully monitoring” the situation surrounding the outbreak. It said the impact should not be too severe as sports betting only represents 5% of revenue, with online casino revenue unaffected by the pandemic, while remote working has long been an “ established way of working” within the business.“Due to the relatively small part of revenues from sports betting, Aspire Global do not expect its revenues to be impacted by the broad cancellation of sports events,” the business said. “In order to mitigate the impact from the cancellation of sports events, Aspire Global and its B2B clients will re-allocate resources including media spend to the casino segment.”Tsachi Maimon, chief executive of Aspire Global, said the business remains confident going forward.“The top priority for us today is to safeguard the health of our employees and their families,” Maimon said. “We took precautionary actions early and can today conclude that we have maintained a high service level towards our operator customers.“Aspire Global has been profitable since its foundation in 2005. That, in combination with our strong cash position and ability to generate cash, we are confident about the continued execution of our growth strategy.”Aristocrat and Aspire are the latest in a long list of businesses in the gambling industry to issue updates on how the virus is affecting business.Flutter Entertainment, the parent company of Paddy Power Betfair and FanDuel, warned that the cancellation of sports events could lead to a £110m (€121.3m/$136.0m) decline in (EBITDA) as approximately 78% of its total revenue in 2019 was generated by betting on sports.Flutter’s future merger partner The Stars Group, however, said that while these cancellations will have a major impact on its sports betting revenue, it remained confident of growth as much of its revenue comes from poker and casino. The operator added that so far it has performed ahead of expectations so far in the current quarter.Ladbrokes Coral operator GVC Holdings revealed that its own EBITDA could decline by £150m because of the lack of sports betting opportunities, before adding a further loss of up to £25m when it was announced that all British horseracing until the end of April would be suspended.William Hill, meanwhile, suspended its 2019 dividend as it expects significant disruption from the suspension of professional sports – with 53% of 2019 revenue coming from sports betting – and the closure of US casinos.Affiliate giant Better Collective has said its financial targets remain unchanged despite the ongoing postponements and cancellations.The Rank Group, LeoVegas, SBTech and Sazka Group all also offered updates.Across the industry, share prices have plummeted with the The Dow Jones Gambling Index falling more than 20% in a day on Monday and more than 50% in the past month. Gaming machine supplier Aristocrat Leisure and platform provider Aspire Global have both issued updates on how the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) is affecting their business.

Covid-19 closures push revenue and profit down at OPAP in Q1 Email Address Tags: Online Gambling OTB and Betting Shops Slot Machines Regions: Europe 11th June 2020 | By contenteditor Greek gaming operator OPAP said a shutdown of its retail network as a result of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic led to a year-on-year decline in revenue and profit during the first quarter.Overall revenue in the three months through to 31 March amounted to €328.3m (£294.3m/$373.2m), down 17.1% from €396.0m in the same period last year. Players wagered a total of €885.1m across OPAP’s products, a drop of 18.3% from €1.1m in Q1 of 2019.Lottery was OPAP’s primary source of income in Q1, with revenue from this segment amounting to €154.5m, down 19.4% on last year, while sports betting revenue fell 13.5% to €88.0m as a result of the closure of retail shops.The shutdown of land-based operations also saw video lottery terminal (VLT) revenue decline 3.4% to €66.6m, while instant and passives games revenue fell 43.0% year-on-year to €19.2m.However, when looking at the period up until the closure of venues on 14 March, OPAP said revenue had been up 1.7% year-on-year.Incidentally, pre-lockdown lottery revenue was down marginally down 0.8%, while sports betting revenue was up 3.2% and VLT revenue 21.5% higher year-on-year. OPAP did not publish instant and passives games revenue for the period.OPAP’s stores in Greece were closed for 58 days, 14 March to 11 May, while its locations in Cyprus were shut between 16 March and 25 May. VLTs activity resumed on 8 June across its network of PLAY stores and OPAP stores in Greece, while horse racing at Markopoulo Park is set to restart on 15 June.In terms of costs for the quarter, OPAP was able to lower spending across several areas. Gaming revenue related expenses were down 15.9% to €95.1m, on the back of lower revenue during the period.Payroll expenses remained almost flat at €19.8m, while marketing costs were cut by 15.0% to €12.6m, as a result of less advertising spend in retail venues and a stronger focus online. Other operating expenses were down 7.6% to €25.3m.However, despite lower costs across the business, earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) was down 23.5% to €86.4m. After accounting for €27.1m in depreciation and amortisation costs, operating profit amounted to €59.3m, a drop of 30.8% on the previous year.Finance costs in Q1 amounted to €11.4m, which left OPAP with €48.8m in profit before tax. After paying €15.0m in tax, profit for the period stood at €33.8m, a drop of 40.4% from €56.7m in the first quarter of 2019.OPAP chief executive Jan Karas described the first quarter as “double faced”, highlighting sizeable growth in the period up until the closure of retail stores, whereas after the shutdown, it saw a severe decline in revenue.“Nonetheless, we reported an overall solid set of results by putting promptly into effect our business continuity plan, achieving material cost savings and enhancing liquidity,” Karas said.“During this exceptional period, our focus and preparatory work related to online, started paying off; we delivered strong customer growth, while significantly improving our online product offering through the launch of virtual and casino games.”Karas also pointed out that OPAP in April agreed a deal to acquire an additional stake in Stoiximan’s Greek and Cypriot business, with the aim of reaching an effective 84.49% holding and giving it a greater online presence.In addition, he paid tribute to the group’s network, praising staff for adapting to new working conditions and claiming a 99% reactivation rate from the first day of reopening.“I am confident that our agents’ and employees’ hard work, positive spirit and commitment will drive once more OPAP’s business forward,” Karas said.

Published by Bojoko, the report focused on online casinos listed on its website that it has a 45% revenue share agreement in place with. Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter “Transparency is absolutely key to trust, and by building an additional layer of trust into these partnerships we can ensure they are long and successful. In terms of how to address the issue, Karhu put forward a number of suggestions, such as an even revenue share split that does not favour either party, better communication from the casino operator to the affiliate, greater transparency in advertising for affiliate programmes, and for affiliates to question what they receive from their partners. “When an affiliate and operator agree to share revenue and the cost item is reasonable, it should be split evenly,” he said. “When it’s a question of cost-per-acquisition (CPA), which refers to a one-time reward to the affiliate for referring a qualified new player, the operator should absorb the fees – as the industry standard is now. Topics: Marketing & affiliates Marketing Karhu said while these fees are essential, he, feels each partnership needs more balance. Casinos fees can relate to a number of factors such as local market taxes, banking fees, marketing, licensing costs, bonuses, chargebacks, software provider fees and admin expenses. Karhu added that the new Professional Gambling Affiliate Association (PGAA) could also play a key role in future talks. Launched in October, the association aims to address the imbalance in the relationship between operators and affiliates. Online casino comparison website Bojoko has called for greater fairness and transparency in the igaming affiliate market after a new report showed some partners were only paying an 8% rate on net revenue share. “This is because with a CPA, the operator believes in their ability to enjoy more revenue than the paid CPA and yield a positive return on investment due to their operational excellence. Reflecting on the findings, Bojoko chief business officer Joonas Karhu said the report shows that more needs to be done to improve the relationship between both parties. The highest revenue share percentage stood at 40.8%, while 18 of the casinos audited had an after-fees revenue percentage lower than 16%, and 23 casinos between 30% and 41%. Are operators taking advantage of affiliates by making too many deductions from their share of the takings or are they simply reacting to changes in the marketplace and trying to claw back some overgenerosities of the past? Next week, iGB will publish an article exploring this topic. “This is a breakthrough moment for both operators and affiliates, providing contractual security for both parties around key areas of any working relationship and commercial agreement,” Karhu said. Email Address Tags: Bojoko “But the report does more than just highlight this issue – it provides solutions and steps that can be taken to ensure fairness and transparency so that both parties can maximise the benefit of the relationship.” “Affiliates have long played a vital role in driving new players and first time depositors to online casinos, and the PGAA contract ensures they are rewarded fairly for doing so. Despite this arrangement, average net revenue share after all casino fees stood at 23.9% among the casinos, with 8% being the lowest share. “We accept the need to pay fees on revenue share agreements, but those fees must be fair and transparent so that affiliates have the opportunity to discuss them before entering into an agreement to promote and operator’s brand,” Karhu said. “Revenue share agreements and fees have been an area of concern for some time now, but with our contract we can overcome these for the benefit of both parties.” Marketing & affiliates AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter “But when it comes to revenue share agreements, costs should be split as the operator is not paying an up-front free for the player, rather sharing the revenues they generate over time.” 23rd April 2021 | By Robert Fletcher Bojoko urges fairness as report uncovers affiliate revenue share as low as 8%

I found out today I am one of 25 Australians to be inducted.

I thank the ICC for what they have done in making this possible.
