The European Lotteries Association will host a meeting for members of its Sport Working Group at next month’s Betting on Sports Week in London (18-21 September), while several of its headline members have been lined up to speak at the event.

European Lotteries is the umbrella organisation of national lotteries operating games of chance for the public benefit, which brings together both state-owned and private operators, both profit and non-profit, who operate on behalf of the state.

Each of the Sport Working Group’s 18 members will be invited to attend the meeting on Wednesday morning 19 September, to discuss topics including sports integrity and sports policy, as well as the planning and content for upcoming European Lotteries events.

This team of 18 includes confirmed #boscon2018 speakers – Jari Vähänen, SVP of Veikkaus, Ludovico Calvi, Board Director of Lottomatica Betting, and Jens Nielsen, Head of Sports Betting at Danske Spil, as well as representatives of Norsk Tipping, SAZKA, Global Lottery Monitoring System, LOTTO Bayern, Szerencsejáték Zrt., Française des Jeux, Österreichische Lotterien, Staatliche Toto-Lotto, Svenska Spel, OPAP, Sisal, Loterie Nationale Belgium and Hrvatska Lutrija.

Ludovico Calvi of Lottomatica, and also the President of the Global Lottery Monitoring System, will take part in the main integrity panel discussing the future outlook of the US market with PASPA down.

Nielsen commented: “Once again, we are delighted that SBC has embraced the importance of our Sport Working Group by facilitating a meeting at Betting on Sports.

iLUCKI makes debut on SoftSwiss' platform

Keen to use the technical know-how of SoftSwiss, combined with their profound experience and insightful knowledge of igaming, the team behind the brand is poised to give it their all to entertain players using the best that technology can offer.

A brief glance at the website distinguishes iLUCKI for its breakout layout and game navigation filters with user experience at the very core.

Advanced or simple – the player decides whether they wish to search for their favourite games with simplified filter options to browse through the entire offering or narrow in on that one game they desire most with pinpoint precision.

The smart filter includes search by number of reels and paylines, as well volatility, hit rate and more. It can be easily activated using an elegant switch found on the navigation menu.

Speaking of favourites, players have the freedom to tag their games into a “Favourite” category, so that no time is spent finding their preferred slots. For those wishing to try their luck at something unexplored, iLucki encourages to try its random slot selector.

What is more, the player-oriented brand rolls out a solid library of the top game providers such as NetEnt, Yggdrasil, Microgaming, Play’n GO, NYX and a plethora of other popular game providers. Thanks to the SoftSwiss Game Aggregator, iLucki establishes a vast portfolio of over 40 game brands.

Crypto-lovers will enjoy the ability to play games supporting their coin of choice, whether it is Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, Etherium Classic, Litecoin, Dogecoin or Monero.

Support of cryptopayments is brought to iLucki through CoinsPaid, SoftSwiss’ long-term partner in cryptopayments, offering high-end security and speedy transactions.

Anyone looking for the more traditional payment methods, will be satisfied by the abundance of such options for deposits and cashouts as Visa, Mastercard and Maestro, plus Skrill, Neteller, Zimpler, Yandex Money, Qiwi, Sofort, Paysafecard, ecoPayz and more.

The cutting-edge SoftSwiss Bonus Engine allows iLucki to present one of the most diverse and choice-rich promotional systems to date. This comes in the form of several first deposit bonuses, weekend wager free cashback events, high roller bonuses, weekday freespins and a colourful playlist of daily tournaments with local prize pools.

iLUCKI is passionate to become a top rated and player-favourite online casino through quality service, innovative ideas and bespoke promotions.

The complementary affiliates section of the website utilises the in-house affiliate system, developed by SoftSwiss to bring added flexibility to both operators and affiliates alike.

A comprehensive configuration of affiliate commissions, sub-affiliates and billing periods is supplied to the operator, all the while keeping affiliates in the loop on the latest news and exclusive promotional content.

As iLUCKi’s motto goes: “We speak casino. We are casino!” players can have peace of mind and rest assured that their satisfaction is iLucki’s top priority.

SoftSwiss is overwhelmingly happy to introduce iLucki to the growing roster of cutting-edge casino brands utilising its proprietary casino and affiliate platform.
