SBC Magazine Issue 8: International expansion and picking up the sporting slack

A focus on international expansion and how we, as the betting and gaming industry, will get through COVID-19 are the key themes throughout Issue 8 of SBC Magazine.

Now available to view HERE, it starts by tracking the journey of Giovanni Garrisi from a mathematician beating the pools to starting a 50/50 JV with Stanley Leisure, seizing an opportunity to become the sole owner of Stanleybet and creating Magellan Robotech.

We also catch up with Petra Zackrisson, Chief Corporate Development Officer for Betano, to find out how the international brand of the Greek founded Stoiximan/Betano sportsbook and casino group is building towards ‘top three’ status in Romania and Portugal.

However, these are just two of five articles dedicated to sports betting, preceding similarly well-stocked sections for all things US market, casino, payments and marketing.

A selection of the betting experts featured include Stanleybet CEO Giovanni Garrisi, Smarkets CTO Robin Harrison, Nederlandse Loterij CTO Maurice Meijer, Sportech CEO Richard McGuire, Sportradar MD for Sports Partnerships David Lampitt, Golden Race CEO Martin Wachter, SIS Commercial Director Ian Baynes, BHA Executive Director Will Lambe and Charles Cohen, IGT VP Sports Betting.

Meanwhile, on the gaming side we also hear from EveryMatrix CEO Ebbe Groes, Evolution Gaming Head of Marketing Amy Riches, Genting Bet Head of Casino Chris Worthington, SG Digital SVP Gaming Dylan Slaney and Relax Gaming CPO Simon Hammon

Trustly duo Nicholas Tucker and Ken Myles are first up to talk about payments, before more from the likes of W2 Global Data CEO Warren Russell and Steven Armstrong, Group Director of AML at William Hill. And finally for marketing we have Rongtian He, Hashtage Sport CEO and Kevin Roth – a meteorologist working for RotoGrinders.

As you might imagine, there is plenty of focus throughout all sections on products expected to pick up some of the slack as COVID-19 wreaks havoc on the 2020 sporting calendar – most notably virtuals, esports and a deeper selection of casino games.

You can also expect to find interviews and expert analysis on topics ranging from the future of horseracing to positioning for growth in the US to the development of the live casino vertical, the impact of age verification measures and everything you need to know about this month’s SBC Digital Summit – a five-day remote gathering for the whole industry.
