Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Gaming operator Betcris has announced its participation in ICE London, one of the most important events in the gaming industry. Head of Business Development Fernando Garita will be on hand to meet with other industry professionals and discuss the latest trends in the gaming industry.

ICE London will take place February 7-9 at the ExCeL London Exhibtion Centre. It has become a regular go-to for some of the most prestigious gaming companies to showcase their products and services. Betcris is no exception, as it plans to showcase its top-notch online sportsbook, casino games and more with the intention of expanding into new markets.

This year, ICE London will take over 41 halls of the ExCeL London venue, while its sister fair, iGB Affiliate London, will occupy the remaining three halls. This makes it the biggest ICE show to date.

Stuart Hunter of Clarion Gaming, which hosts the event, stated of ICE London, “ICE is vital to the global business all the more so as the industry has waited three years for its return: as a consequence, the eyes of the gaming world will be focused on what for many industry commentators is now World Gaming Week. This builds on the volume and variety of high-profile meetings, industry-leading conferences, content masterclasses and networking that take place during the period when the global industry comes together and is present in London.”

With extensive experience in the gaming industry, Betcris is one of the most trusted names in online gaming. It offers a wide range of gaming options for both casual and hardcore bettors and gamblers alike.

After a successful 2022 that saw it add new partnerships and technology, ICE London will be a great place for it to highlight its accomplishments. Some of the potential benefits that Betcris could see from this participation include increased brand awareness, greater exposure to new markets and improved relationships with existing customers. This is a great opportunity for Betcris to show the world what it’s all about and why it’s one of the top gaming operators around.

ICE London is one of the most important events in the gaming industry calendar, and Betcris is looking forward to showcasing its products and services to a global audience. Betcris has a long history in the gaming industry, and its participation in ICE London 2023 underscores its commitment to being at the forefront of innovation in the sector.

Wazdan’s 9 Coins™ shortlisted for the Game of the Year title at the prestigious Global Gaming Awards

Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

The Wazdan hit title 9 Coins™ has been nominated by the Global Gaming Awards in the Game of the Year category, with winners to be announced in London on 6th February 2023.

9 Coins™ was released in July to immediate popularity, connecting with players due in large part to the inclusion of Wazdan’s innovative engagement-boosting Cash Infinity™ feature.

The formidable combination of the developer’s first-class game design and its intuitive features saw the number of unique active players increased by 163%, game rounds by 248%, and bet sum by an impressive 265%.

The title quickly established itself as Wazdan’s most popular game of the year, going on to inspire successful sequels including, 9 Coins™ 1000 Edition and 9 Coins Grand Gold Edition.

Andrzej Hyla, Chief Commercial Officer at Wazdan, said: “We knew we were on to a winner as soon as 9 Coins™ hit the market and those numbers started to soar.

“It’s fantastic to see that hard work paid off and our game has been recognised by prestigious awards bodies like the Global Gaming Awards. We can’t wait for the results in February and best of luck to all you friends and fellow nominees!”
