With more than 5,000 daily visitors attending the event, Soft2Bet executives met with partners and contacts to share insights and conduct business in the company’s brand-new double-decker stand.
Packed with futuristic designs, huge LED screens and meeting rooms to host private discussions, the Soft2Bet stand held center stage in the Mediterranean Maritime Hub (MMH), the new venue that hosted SiGMA.

Soft2Bet’s SiGMA Highlights included: Motivational Engineering: Soft2Bet CEO Uri Poliavich gave the keynote on Wednesday 15 November and explained how our gamification features enable operators to generate major revenue and engagement boosts, but were also key tools in helping them compete with the social media giants for players’ attention.

Uri commented: “Suppliers and operators compete against each other every day, but actually we’re competing against the likes of TikTok, Instagram and Youtube for players’ attention. This can be done by offering personalisation features, collectables, leaderboards or City Builder mechanics that prolong players’ daily activities, but also provide long-term goals over the course of many months that they can work towards.”

Noting the financial benefits Soft2Bet’s gamification features, Uri added: “The average GGR per player on gamified brands increased by 65% and deposit amounts were up 42%, but just as important, player screen time is up 300%, four times higher than other operators.”

During his panel on European regulation, David Yatom Hay, General Counsel at Soft2Bet, said: “Regulatory expansion is a key strategic target for Soft2Bet and that will continue going into 2024. Adapting to the evolving landscape across Malta and European markets is a key part of our work.”

Driving Soft2Bet’s commercial efforts, Chief Business Development Officer Martin Collins welcomed partners, contacts and prospects at our brand new stand. He commented: “This year’s event was a great success and it was fantastic to meet so many contacts to discuss new features and projects to expand our partners’ activities whilst maintaining continual growth.”

Key markets in Central and Eastern Europe, like Poland, Hungary, and the Czech Republic, are further embracing the potential of the online gambling industry. These nations represent exciting opportunities for expansion. Furthermore, we’re closely monitoring the flourishing niche market of esports betting, which continues to show great potential and will only grow in the coming years.

We’re equipped to provide the technological edge they need to succeed in this vibrant region.


What will be the focuses of the European market in 2024?

In 2024, the European market will prioritise several key areas, and esports betting is among the frontrunners. It continues to gain traction globally, and Europe is no exception. Operators and platforms offering comprehensive and competitive esports betting solutions will enjoy a strategic advantage.

Additionally, responsible gaming and player protection will remain paramount in the European market, as it rightly should be. Regulatory compliance and the upholding of a secure and equitable gaming environment for players will continue to be of utmost importance.

From a broader perspective of technological advancements, we anticipate a growing emphasis on personalisation and user experience. Operators that can deliver tailored and immersive experiences for players will stand out, and we’re ready to support them in achieving this.

In summary, BETBY’s approach is perfectly aligned with the European market’s trajectory in 2024. We are committed to helping our partners navigate the dynamic European landscape and stay at the forefront of industry trends and developments.
