Vadim Potapenko: “We are satisfied the Telegram-casino project”

The head of sales department of “Slotegrator” Vadim Potapenko in an interview “Gamblers Post” spoke about the success of the Telegram-casino project and made a forecast about the further development of the gambling market.

  1. What are your plans for second quarter? Should we expect any new products?

Our team always tries to surprise with new useful developments for the gambling sphere. Recently we have launched a new product called Moneygrator. It is a platform that combines the major payment systems widely used in the iGaming industry. It allows you to manage all transactions within the casino project and it provides their reliability and security.

So now we are actively promoting Moneygrator. Our new product we will present on 7-8 June at the exhibition-conference RGW in Moscow, and also on IGB Live 2018 in Amsterdam. At the same time, we are engaged in expanding the catalog of game software for the casinos. Just a little while ago we signed a cooperation agreement with XPG, the provider of live games. Now the supplier’s software is available in APIgrator, which is a unified protocol for game integration in online casino.

  1. In 2017, you presented a new solution – Telegram-casino. How satisfied are you with this decision? Did it justify your expectations?

As you may have noticed, Telegram is currently experiencing difficulties in some countries, particularly in Russia, but still, it is gaining popularity around the world. We can say that Telegram casino was one of the most popular requests over the last year, so we are completely satisfied with the project. However, at the moment we are focused more on the creation of the new products. Fortunately, the technologies do not stand still; they are constantly improving, and so we are – developing and moving forward, introducing new solutions to the industry of iGaming.

  1. What trends in the game world do you observe?

Having analyzed the gambling trends in 2017, we concluded that in 2018 the following trends would take the lead:

  • VR-casino;
  • live dealers;
  • gamification;
  • storyline specification in slots;
  • Big Data technologies;
  • consolidation (merging of gambling companies).

  1. What are your forecasts for the further development of the gambling industry?

Popularity of the gambling business increases every day, therefore according to forecasts, the gambling market will be expanding and reaching heights. In recent years, the gambling industry was growing at 8 – 10% per year. Online gambling is now experiencing a real peak of its development, which will last until 2020. Up to that time, at least the same development rate is predicted. However, we do not exclude that the growth can reach 11-12% per year.

Also note that the share of online gambling in the overall income of the world market is growing faster than the entire industry as a whole. In 2014, online income was only 8.8% of the total revenue of the gambling business; now it exceeds 10%.

Mobile gambling is very popular now as well, and in the future, demand for it will increase. We are sure that the future of gambling belongs to the mobile casinos because they are convenient and profitable.
