Interview from SBC about CGP’s plans for 2021!

Check out the latest interview from Erin-Marie Gallagher of Sports Betting Community, about the future of Campeón Gaming Partners in 2021.

“As this year draws to a close, much to the relief of many, Giannis Katsavrias – Affiliate Manager at Campeón Gaming Partners (CGP) – reflects on how 2020 marked a turning point for CGP as he explains why the future looks bright as we enter 2021.

2020 has been a difficult and bizarre year due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Lockdowns and financial fears could be the turning point for igaming. Here at CGP, we like to see the glass half-full and we believe that this unprecedented time can be the beginning of a bright future.  Many people found consolation in online casinos so far and we are already shaping our strategy for 2021.

To begin with, we are focusing more on mobile gaming. A staggering four billion people are using mobile phones. The vast expansion of internet connectivity has accompanied this growth. Mobile phones are replacing computers for most personal tasks, including entertainment.  Phones have become more powerful and smarter, resulting in even more user- friendly play from a mobile device. 

While many people still opt for the desktop view, more and more users are turning to their smartphones which always remain within reach. Moreover, the broad usage of 5G networks all over the world will give us the opportunity to provide the players a whole new level of gaming experience.

Another rapid-growing market we always keep an eye on is esports betting. Esports is the fastest-growing subset in sports betting and have already seen a large expansion the last few years. The astounding payouts have attracted many to the world of esports and the global fanbase is only predicted to grow faster in the coming years. 

With the winner’s rewards growing and greater technological improvements being made within different games, we can only expect that esports will thrive even more in 2021 and that it’s why our interest is big there.

Furthermore, there has been much noise about cryptocurrency use in gambling markets. The fact is that cryptos offer advantages that online casinos can’t ignore. They offer lower transaction costs than conventional banking transactions. This translates to better margins for online casinos, and better odds for our customers. 

Virtual currencies are highly tipped to replace cash deposits and withdrawals in the industry, largely because of how they are getting accepted in the mainstream world. That is why here at CGP, we are already using cryptocurrencies in many aspects of our transactions.

And not just cryptocurrencies, the list could also include Blockchain-based games. We believe that this could be the year that casinos give bonuses to those who use crypto payments on their blockchain platforms. If this really happens, it will be interesting to see how the casino sites harness the technology, given its massive successes in other industries.

As people are realising that users often prefer this method to traditional payment options, transfers within casinos that are using crypto are expected to rise in 2021 and beyond with more online casinos offering them. Cryptocurrency exchanges could quite possibly become the new norm much sooner than we think.

Moreover, we are constantly checking ways to improve our bonuses and limited-time offers. We are also checking new ways, like bonuses could also be offered in virtual currencies, something that will lead in more generous welcome bonuses, similar to first deposit bonuses and free spins offers..

Augmented and virtual reality is slowly making its way into the gambling world and 2021 might finally be the year it gains full acceptance.  We are checking some developments in order to adopt AI, Machine Learning and the Internet of Things to enhance customer satisfaction, finally.

Last but not least, our workforce is our most precious asset. 

Throughout 2020, CGP has tried to safeguard all employees by providing home-working opportunities with flexible working hours, and ensuring that home-office spaces were set up with all necessary equipment and software. New laptops were provided and extra screens to make working from home as comfortable as it could be. To emphasise this level of job security, the first wave of the virus from March through to July was the highest hiring period at CGP. 

During the last six months, staff numbers have almost doubled. Interviews have been held online, while onboarding and training has been carried out via various software tools that facilitate home-working. And this is how we want to continue in 2021. 

Within the ever-changing climate of the 21st century, each year brings new opportunities for things to be done better and faster while eliciting the most friendly and fun experience for the end-users. 

This is even more true in the world of gaming and online casinos which have seen a dramatic increase in traffic, especially in 2020. One thing is for certain: the market is growing and here at CGP, we are responding.”

Interview from SBC with Akis Tosounidis, about CGP’s digital and technological transformation.

Check out the latest interview from Luke Massey of Sports Betting Community, with Avraam (Akis) Tosounidis, Co-Founder and CFO of Campeón Gaming Partners.

If the pace of the pre-coronavirus world was already fast, the luxury of time has now completely disappeared for iGaming operators trying to keep pace with the gambling industry’s digital and technological transformation.

Avraam Tosounidis, CFO and Co-Founder at Campeón Gaming Partners (CGP), looked at some of the new strategies and tech upgrades brought in by CGP this year, before assessing the underlying reasons why these changes would or might not ‘stick’ and their ability to meet new player demands.

Tosounidis admitted that the pandemic has brought about a faster pace of changes, adding that there is a link between the length of the crisis and permanence of changes to the business in terms of what constitutes the “new normal”.

“In situations of extreme uncertainty, leadership needs to learn quickly what is and is not working and why,” he explained. “This requires identifying and learning about unknown elements as quickly as they appear. Prior to the crisis, CGP had already been increasing the cadence of our digital and technological transformation.

“We started from the basics, remote workforces and automation. A common theme emerging is the widely held desire to build on the flexibility and diversity brought through remote working.

“Learning how to maintain productivity even as we return to office buildings after the lockdown ends, and even as we continue to automate activities, will be critical to capturing the most value from this real-world experiment that is occurring.”

Tosounidis expanded on some of these basics to outline more concrete changes to technology, investments in which “won’t be undone post-crisis” so will be there and ready if required.

This included the introduction of facial recognition, voice recognition, gesture controls, high definition displays, virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR).

He added: “We are trying to make long-lasting changes to our platforms. In the coming times, we will see more technological advances in the gaming sector. The future development of the gaming industry will move towards greater integration of the real world. 

“We will see more global AR games and gadgets, encouraging the new generation to immerse themselves in the online casino gaming world completely. Online gaming has come a long way, and gambling is not left far behind either. Now we have the ability to allow our players to enjoy a real casino-like feel.

“We are also constantly trying to enhance our data security. Recognising any security gaps that need immediate address in order to minimise the risk.”

Any security gaps extend, inevitably, beyond player data safeguards such as facial and voice recognition to the use of safer payment methods.

“Money flowing around land-based casinos makes players a prime target for fraud,” said Tosounidis. “Digital security techniques help to ensure that digital transactions are limited, and money laundering is fully eliminated.

“The blockchain technology has also made online transactions safe and secure. Using crypto wallets and cryptocurrencies allows for safe transactions, as no details of the player are disclosed. This has boosted up the customer base in online gambling, as they feel safer while depositing and withdrawing money. Moreover, by using cryptocurrency, players will not even have to pay any commission.”

Moving through the customer journey, data-driven decision making and artificial intelligence (AI) were highlighted by Tosounidis as crucial elements for delivering a stand-out UX.

“Customer centricity is crucial for those looking to succeed in the iGaming industry,” he said. “We are evolving big data technology due to its ability to extract, analyse and process data from large data volumes. In iGaming, data is used to determine a player’s in-game activities, preferences, and interactions with other participants.

“Apart from personalised experiences, big data succeeds in ensuring players engage in their favourite games, responsibly. There is no doubt that data has a huge role to play, and now, with AI and new machine learning techniques, data can be processed faster for informed decisions to be made on time.”

Picking up on the best use of AI, he continued: “It allows processes to occur in real-time, which assures gamers of positive experiences. The iGaming sector stands to gain from AI’s ability to make suggestions on customising games and which ones to play since this trend will lead to more creative innovations. 

“Interestingly, AI has a security feature that helps regulate the industry. It can detect unusual behaviour to protect the software from hackers. Moreover, it complies with the latest standards and regulations.”

Moving boldly doesn’t mean moving thoughtlessly, said Tosounidis, who stressed that taking bold action and the ability to learn from such action are highly interrelated. 

“The real-time ability to learn during a crisis is in fact the one ingredient that can turbocharge our ability to scale quickly,” he concluded. “If a silver lining can be found, it might be in the falling barriers to improvisation and experimentation that have emerged among players, operators, markets, regulators, and organisations. 

“In this unique moment, companies can learn and progress more quickly than ever before. The ways they learn from and adjust to today’s crisis will deeply influence our performance in tomorrow’s changed world, providing the opportunity to retain greater agility as well as closer ties with our players, employees, and providers. Those that are successfully able to make gains ‘stick’ will likely be more successful during recovery and beyond.”

Interview from SBC with Akis Tosounidis and Marinos Shiapanis, about safeguarding staff and protecting players during the pandemic.

Check out the latest interview from Luke Massey of Sports Betting Community, with Marinos Shiapanis, CEO and Co-Founder and Avraam (Akis) Tosounidis, Co-Founder and CFO of Campeón Gaming Partners.

Campeón Gaming Partners (CGP) understands that Covid-19 has brought about a difficult time filled with so much uncertainty. 

We spoke to Marinos Shiapanis, Co-Founder and CEO, and Avraam Tosounidis, Co-Founder and CFO, to learn more about managing the company through the crisis.

An important goal set by its management, therefore, was to reset strategies for all departments and focus on long-term plans, while reassuring employees of job-safety, facilitating working from home and protecting mental well-being. 

“We believe that how businesses respond to crisis and uncertainty will have a lasting impact on employee behaviour, engagement and productivity,” said Shiapanis. “Health and well-being, financial stability and job security are top concerns for employees, so we tried our best to address those fears in meaningful ways.”

To help put workers at ease, the company also tried to provide as much information as possible, as explained by Tosounidis. “We used all channels to keep all of the staff updated,” he added. “In times like this, I think good communication is absolutely necessary.”

Both Shiapanis and Tosounidis (pictured) understand the huge importance of providing day-to-day direction and ongoing emotional support. Now more so than before, company leaders must talk to employees about how they are doing more broadly, in addition to what challenges are arising in the work-from-home environment. 

With this in mind, CGP offered personalised and online advice to managers to better learn how to work with a distributive team and foster open communication. 

“It’s important to encourage employees to care for themselves,” said Shiapanis. “These are great times to show empathy, but also encouragement and flexibility, because everyone isn’t going to respond in the same way to this pandemic.”

In a matter of days prior to the first lockdown, CGP tried to safeguard all employees by providing home-working opportunities with flexible working hours, and ensuring that home-office spaces were set up with all necessary equipment and software. New laptops were provided and extra screens to make working from home as comfortable as it could be.

To emphasise this level of job security, the first wave of the virus from March through to July was the highest hiring period at CGP. During the last six months, staff numbers have almost doubled. Interviews have been held online, while onboarding and training has been carried out via various software tools that facilitate home-working.

Yet despite the quick switch to home working, CGP was also proactively looking at life after (or between) Covid times. These included moving to a bigger office space to facilitate social-distancing and decreasing the workforce in the office to 50% of total capacity with home to office shifts, all while maintaining the same goals and operational plans.

Of course, it’s not just the staff that requires CGP support. The company also took the lead in efforts to remedy players’ problematic gambling patterns at its casinos during the crisis.

Recognising the potential for players to develop addictions, an important initiative for CGP casinos was the addition of an extra ‘Time-Out’ option, as well as increased surveillance of player screen time and attentive customer support for players’ needs. 

The goal, both Shiapanis and Tosounidis agreed, was to demonstrate better understanding of the pandemic and quarantine-based concerns that could lead to gambling problems such as financial distress, isolation and boredom.

However, putting staff and player concerns to one side, Tosounidis was keen to stress the opportunities available to the company with the right management.

“As the saying goes, every cloud has a silver lining!” he added. “And here at CGP we strongly believe this. Another important goal we set was to diversify our portfolio of brands and think of different approaches to increase our outreach by rekindling with partners and friends, and substituting outdated strategies to more inclusive and encompassing ones. 

“CGP has, as a result, built better relationships with providers from different countries, re-designed its internal operational vision to provide novel payment solutions and a fresh outlook for players. And this also resulted in launching two new casinos during the pandemic crisis – Wallacebet and Sons of Slots.”

Sons of Slots, launched in March 2020, and Wallacebet, brought to the industry’s attention in June 2020, are becoming an increasingly important part of CGP’s casino and sportsbook portfolio, slowly earning the trust of their loyal European players. 

Both websites are MGA licensed, and backed by a massive portfolio of top-quality games, trust-worthy payment solutions and additional features. 

“Although Wallacebet and Sons of Slots are new this year, they have already won the players’ attention,” said Shiapanis. “With 6,000 web casino games and 4,500 mobile casino games, more than 65,000 pre-match events every month, over 40,000 live matches every month, and covering over 120 sports with an offering that exceeds 250 markets, they offer a complete customer experience, the thrill of the game and the safety for payments.

“We are focusing on making both brands even more recognisable and aiming at steadily becoming leaders in the Nordic market and hopefully, across Europe. With a strong marketing strategy and campaigns across all channels (mainstream media, social media, advertising), we are building a strong case for Wallacebet and Sons of Slots soon to become established brands and conquer their rightful place among the industry leaders.”

Meet the managers of CGP in Trafficology’s latest issue!

Trafficology meets the managers of Campeon Gaming Partners: Theo Tsimpogiannis (Head of Operations), Antonis Voerakos (Head of Customer Retention & Lifecycle) and Amard Vila (Head of Design and Development), in a pleasant interview for October’s issue!

Amard Vila – Head of design and development:

How did you get into gaming and end up at Campeon Gaming?

I joined the industry of gaming by chance. I was looking for a job as a designer after I graduated and was recruited by a casino operator. I was fascinated with all the graphic work of casino games and its vibrant colors, so creating my first banners was fun and creative. Things started to snowball from there, working hard, my passion for design while meeting the right people, led me to the Campeon Gaming Partners co-founders.

What is your day-to-day role with the company?

My role revolves around design and development of brands, projects and technologies, from their concept creation to its foundations up to the daily operation. I run a team of designers, developers, partners and together with other departments such as marketing and affiliates, we provide users with unique designs, optimal usability, and enhanced gaming experience.

What would you like to see more of in the gaming industry?

I would like to see some innovation in the casino area, maybe using modern technologies such as AR/VR to make games more immersive. I’d also like to see enhanced slots with better graphics, animations, music and sounds to give the gaming experience a feel of a triple-A video game. In addition, providers could also add within slots multiplayer capabilities where friends may spin and bet together in the same session.

Describe the person you are. What do you get up to outside work? I like to have fun in creative ways and I like to learn new things. I’m also curious about how things work and how they can be improved. To recharge my batteries, I play PC games, hang out with friends, go to the gym, and travel to new places when I’m in the mood. Other than that you’ll normally find me on my couch watching TV and movies.

Antonis Voerakos – Head of retention and customer lifecycle

How did you get into gaming and end up at Campeon Gaming?

As a young man I was clueless about what I wanted to do for a living, and with my life in general. That, inevitably, led me to some experimentation and after switching career paths twice, I was given the opportunity to get my first marketing job at a casino-sportbook operator. From there, I had the pleasure to collaborate with some CGP colleagues on some online gaming projects, so as soon as the opportunity arose, I was happy to make my move and joined the team.

What is your day-to-day role with the company?

I am responsible for marketing and retention activities across our brands. Following a multi-brand strategy can be challenging at times. However, it’s always fun and rewarding. It gives us the flexibility to experiment with different marketing mixes, models and tactics.

What would you like to see more of in the gaming industry?

From a player’s perspective, I would love to see more transparency and less bureaucracy and complexity. Playing should more accessible and overall player access to information should be made easier. As a professional, I would love to see more meaningful product innovation and more of core differentiation.

Tell us a little bit about yourself. What do you get up to outside work?

Well, outside my Elvis Presley impersonator side-job, I love spending time with my two baby boys. I also love music, psychology, fighting sports and RPG video games. And as you can tell, I like to add some humor here and there.

Theo Tsimpogiannis – Head of operations

How did you get into gaming and end up at Campeon Gaming?

My excitement about the online gaming industry was always there. Although I tried different industries throughout my business career, I realised that online gaming is the one that gives me thrills every single day. As I tend to say, in this industry everyone needs to have of mixture of three main ingredients: determination, effort and luck. These three brought me to where I am today.

What is your day-to-day role with the company?

As head of brand operations, my eyes are constantly on multiple areas within Campeon Gaming Partners. The target is pretty straightforward: maximise productivity and minimise operation costs while constantly working on improving our products. What makes this more exciting and at the same time more challenging is the fact that we have to do this effectively on multiple brands.

What would you like to see more of in the gaming industry?

I would like to see more esports team tournaments and cups. On sports it would be interesting to see in football or basketball where each player controls only one player within the game. It exists out there but not on a global scale like LoL (League of Legends) tournaments or Dota2. Also, I’m a huge fan of animations within slot games, so I’m eager to see more games with breathtaking graphics and iconic sound effects.

Describe what kind of person you are. What do you get up to outside work?

I like to feel fit, mentally as well as physically. I spend a lot of hours educating myself on new concepts about self-development and overall wellness. I also always enjoy time with friends and family (nowadays, with some social-distancing, of course).
