Prevent churn: identify players at risk of churn and try to prevent it. For example, sports bettors who haven’t visited your site one week after Boxing Day should raise a flag. Send them an offer ASAP. Show players you’re in it for the long run: keep communicating with players after the holiday season using the same ‘voice’.

Revenue and operating profit down at Cirsa in Q3

first_img Revenue and operating profit down at Cirsa in Q3 25th November 2020 | By Robert Fletcher Revenue for the three months through to 30 September amounted to €232.8m (£207.4m/$276.8m), down 40.7% from €392.3m last year as the operator said it continued to feel the impact of Covid-19 measures. Q3 results 2020 Meanwhile, activity in Italy restarted at the beginning of July, which Cirsa said allowed for the gradual recovery of amusement with prize machines, video lottery terminals and gaming halls. In Mexico, Cirsa was able to reopen land-based venues, but faced strict measures in terms of opening times and capacity. However, it also said that the situation improved compared to the first half, with revenue up 450.4% from €42.3m in the second quarter. Slots were also helped by the launch of two new models of machines in the form of Manhattan and Oro del Faraón. Sales of the new machines also led to a return to normality within the Cirsa Unidesa B2B division.

Cirsa has reported a year-on-year decline in revenue and operating profit in the third quarter, primarily due to restrictions on its land-based network due to the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. Focusing on its operating units, Cirsa said its casinos in Spain and, towards the end of Q3, in both the Dominican Republic and Colombia, began to recover, with a good level of visits across its venues. Regions: LATAM Southern Europe Italy Spain Though the operator did not go into full details on its financial performance in Q3, it did state operating profit reached €37.5m, down 68.1% from last year, but up from a loss of €51.4m in Q2. Cirsa highlighted the reactivation of the hotel industry and land-based gambling sector in Spain and Italy as a major factor in Q3, while it was also helped by the gradual reopening of its venues in Latin America towards the end of the quarter. Cirsa kept all bingo rooms open during the third quarter and, despite having to contend with opening time restrictions, was able to increase the level of activity and number of visits month-on-month. The operator was also able to reopen all of its salons in Spain in July – in line with national Covid-19 measures. The Sportium sports betting retail business was fully operational during the third quarter and, along with its online operations, benefitted by the return of major sports competitions in the period.

Casual gaming deals help Zynga smash revenue and booking records in 2020

first_img“Zynga’s multi-year strategy of growing our live services, launching new games and investing in exciting growth opportunities has us well positioned for growth in 2021 and beyond.” Topics: Casino & games Social gaming Full year results 2020 Q4 results 2020 Results 2020 That year ended with a record fourth quarter performance, in which the operator set new three-month revenue and booking records.  11th February 2021 | By Robin Harrison After a $24.0m income tax charge was factored in, Zynga’s net loss for 2020 came to $429.4m.  Casual gaming deals help Zynga smash revenue and booking records in 2020 Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Revenue for the 12 months to 31 December was up 49.4% year-on-year to $1.97bn (£1.43bn/€1.63bn), while bookings – which adds deferred revenue to the total – were up 45.1% at $2.27bn.  Costs for the quarter did rise, though only marginally, climbing 3.0% to $643.5m, resulting in Zynga’s Q4 operating loss narrowing to $27.5m. After financial items and income taxes, this resulted in its net loss more than halving to $53.0m. Adjusted EBITDA totalled $89.9m, up 138.5%. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter “These gains will be partially offset by declines in older mobile and web titles. Our topline guidance does not assume any meaningful contribution from our games currently in soft launch.” A year of significant revenue growth, not to mention significant expansion through M&A, resulted in a rise in outgoings. Operating costs were up 47.1% to $2.35bn, as revenue-related expenses, research and development, sales and marketing outgoings all grew.  This included $763.1m in revenue from international markets, up 54.1% year-on-year and another new record.  After financial items, it swung to a pre-tax loss of $405.4m, compared to a $47.3m profit in the prior year. However the 2019 figure was skewed by $322.5m in other income, that came predominantly from the sale of its San Francisco headquarters.  The operator’s ‘forever franchises’, including Zynga Poker, Words with Friends, as well as Peak’s Toon and Toy Blast titles, accounted for 70% ($1.38bn) of revenue, with a further 19% ($374.3m) coming from its social casino and card games. The remaining 11% ($216.7m) came from other products.  Zynga chief executive Frank Gibeau has paid tribute to the social gaming giant’s employees after it set new records for revenue and bookings in 2020, aided by acquisitions of casual gaming studios Rollic and Peak Games. Revenue grew 22.4% to $616.0m in the three months to 31 December 2020, and bookings were up 11.3% to $698.9m.  This growth was aided by the strong performance of proprietary titles such as Empires & Puzzles, Words With Friends and Harry Potter: Puzzles & Spells, and complemented by the acquisitions of Peak Games and Rollic.  The year saw Zynga break revenue records across the board. Online games’ total of $1.67bn marked a 59.2% improvement on the prior year. While its advertising revenue grew at a slower rate, a 12.1% increase to $307.6m represented another milestone sum. This resulted in Zynga’s operating loss widening to $370.2m. Full year results 2020 Adjusted earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA), meanwhile, soared 205.3% to $266.2m.  Q4’s revenue comprised $498.6m from online games (up 14.4%) and $117.4m from advertising, a 74.4% year-on-year improvement. While the ‘forever franchises’ accounted for 69% ($425.0m) of this total, the social casino and cards portfolio’s contribution rose to 17% ($104.7m), with 14% ($86.2m) from other games.  Tags: Zynga Peak was acquired for $1.85bn in July 2020, adding successful casual titles such as Toon Blast and Toy Blast to Zynga’s portfolio, while an $180m deal for Rollic, a hyper-casual Turkish studio, was finalised in October. Chief executive Frank Gibeau (pictured) said Zynga’s “talented and resilient” teams performed well in an “unprecedented” year.  “Our execution throughout 2020 added meaningful scale to our live services platform and strengthened our position as one of the leading mobile game publishers in the world,” Gibeau said. “Our live services portfolio is off to a tremendous start in 2021 led by our Forever Franchises, momentum in Harry Potter: Puzzles & Spells and two new top downloaded hyper-casual games from Rollic.  “Our topline performance will be driven by our live services, which includes the year-over-year additions of Toon Blast, Toy Blast and Harry Potter: Puzzles & Spells as well as existing and new hyper-casual games from Rollic, in addition to collective growth across the remainder of our live services portfolio,” Zynga explained.  Regions: US The business expects first quarter revenue to reach $635m – which would represent a 57% year-on-year improvement – and bookings to hit $680m.  Email Addresslast_img read more

first_imgThe speed of esports events further compounds the difficulty of making esports odds. The Overwatch and Call of Duty Leagues are streamlined, steady and scheduled weeks in advance. Dota events are sporadic. The level of maintenance needed should be included in your entry plan. Developer-sponsored franchised leagues are becoming more popular in esports, so newer or legacy titles could switch to them in the future. Esports The second type features sports simulation games. Betting on Madden, FIFA and NBA2K exploded in 2020 due to the cancellation of many major sports leagues. While not entirely identical, these titles feature similar rulesets to their real-life equivalents, meaning traditional sports fans find the transition easy and many of the fans who flocked to esports last year stuck with it even after real play resumed. These games also have consistent competitive events thanks to developer support and partnerships with many major sports leagues. Several NFL, NBA and soccer teams sponsor players for their virtual equivalent. Current esports bookies are already familiar with some of the unique traits of video game betting. They’re more familiar with the process of integrating new titles and already have an esports-focused portion of their user base. Esports bettors rarely stick to just one game, a trend shared by their traditional counterparts. However, esports are still new media and entire new genres with different competitive formats can emerge with varying degrees of competitive grandeur.  The games mentioned above are the most popular betting attractions, but plenty of other esports have long-running competitive scenes. Here are some more common video games in sportsbooks: For example, Valorant is less than a year old and is still growing. However, it has guaranteed support from the developers of League of Legends, the most popular esport in the world. Even if it isn’t huge now, Valorant esports will provide an excellent onboarding point when in-person play becomes feasible again. The most popular esports betting titles fall under two categories. The first includes legacy esports, particularly the ‘Big Three’: League of Legends, Dota 2 and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. These all have over a decade of competitive history with millions of dollars in prize money having been won. They’re also some of the most popular video games globally, giving them a stable fanbase. All three titles also receive significant developer attention. Riot Games owns League of Legends, and Valve controls both Dota and CS:GO. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter What’s important for new esports bookmakers? Overwatch – A six vs six class-based shooter with cartoony visuals. Developer Activision Blizzard runs the Overwatch League, which operates in a similar fashion to the NFL or NBA.Call of Duty – The popular first-person shooter franchise has a historic competitive scene. The franchised league is also run by Activision.Valorant – A tactical shooter similar to CS:GO, designed by Riot. The game is relatively new and many top Counter-Strike pros immediately switched over to Valorant.Starcraft 2 – One of the oldest esports and the first to be featured on television. The Korean scene dominates the real-time strategy game, but other countries put up a fight.Hearthstone – While not as popular as it once was, Blizzard’s card game is still very competitive. Both developer and third-party events are commonplace.PUBG – The first massive battle royale title. Developer-sponsored tournaments make this one of the most popular battle royale esports. 23rd March 2021 | By contenteditor The opposite is true of Hearthstone. The devs still care about it, and the casual audience is somewhat engaged, but it’s unlikely to return to its heyday again. Operators that already offer Hearthstone betting still benefit now, but the return on investment isn’t comparatively high for new sites. Which esports are people betting on – and what should operators take away from this? When evaluating whether to enter the esports space or not, estimate the length of the game’s popularity and include it in your assessment. Remember: not every site needs to accommodate every esport. Knowledge of a game’s potential popularity and its unique logistical hurdles will help you determine which esports are right for your sportsbook. The most important thing for existing esports betting sites to consider is the necessary services needed to offer a new title. Data services for one title rarely apply to another, and companies that offer esports data applications will need time to develop new software. Existing titles might already have the framework, but the majority of Starcraft 2 bettors are probably already wagering with a current site. Topics: Esports esports betting By Kenneth Williams When assessing the cost of offering esports betting, there are many factors to consider absent from traditional sports. The titles you plan to offer should be the first thing decided. As new esports titles are developed, older titles lose relevancy or die off. Oddsmaking software and dedicated data platforms will eventually become obsolete. A game’s shelf life should be the number one concern for esports betting decision-makers.  Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter The lion’s share of betting money still goes on legacy esports but traditional sports fans helped Madden, FIFA and NBA2K enjoy a stellar 2020.
