It is well established as a gaming brand but has never really ventured into the betting vertical and was looking for a tier-1 sportsbook platform to harness the exposure it has gained in the UK through major sponsorship deals it has had over the past 10-15 years.The fact that Mansion is able to build on this strong brand awareness means players will see the Mansionbet name and know it is part of a well established and trusted gaming company group that has been investing significantly in UK sports sponsorship over many years.SBC: Why is the SBTech solution so well suited to Mansion’s brand?RC: Speed to market, flexibility,  and a powerful BI and sportsbook engine are just some of the strengths we offer as the leading supplier of sports betting and gaming solutions to the industry.These features, combined with the fact that we are 100% regulation-ready and also provide a full platform solution that includes casino, mean operators are always contacting us to discuss new projects and launches.SBC: How much of a competitive advantage is having casino, sportsbook and platform from the same supplier?RC: As mentioned above, this is a key feature of SBTech’s offering and a major differentiator when compared to other platform suppliers. The fact that Mansion is able to run its flagship brand across the two key verticals of sports betting and casino is a major plus for all parties: significant efficiencies are achieved thanks to integration being carried out once across the platform; operationally the group can organise and manage all the different elements of its offering via a single back end.SBTech is unique in being able to provide these services and is a major reason why we have grown so much in recent years.SBC: It’s a great way to start off the year – do you have more in the pipeline?RC: Thank you and, yes, we are preparing to launch a number of major new clients across regulated markets such as Denmark, France or Spain in the coming months; of course not forgetting the US market potentially coming onstream later this year.SBC: How has M&A, both from an operator and a supplier perspective, changed the supplier market? Are there more or fewer opportunities?RC: M&A has always been part of the industry and while there are different challenges in 2018 to what we might have encountered 10 years ago, both operators and suppliers have learnt to adapt and grow in these new environments. The prospect in 2018 (and beyond) of a regulated online betting and gaming sector across many major regions presents SBTech with a fantastic opportunity to further consolidate its place as the leading platform supplier in the industry.

first_imgDonegal Foróige volunteer Killian O’Kelly has been named national volunteer of the year.Killian has been supporting the Foroige Bundoran Neighbourhood Youth Project for 5 years now.Caroline Cooke, youth worker at the Project nominated Killian. “When the Bundoran Neighbourhood Youth Project were told we had to cut the project 5 years ago as we had no space to work from due to lack of funding, Killian offered the project his own business space to work from for a full year free of charge,” she said.“This allowed us to sustain the project. Five years on and the project is really going from strength to strength. We are now a full time Youth Project in Bundoran with over 22 volunteers and with huge community and family support. Our services are now on offer to more than 200 young people and families in the Bundoran area alone.“Not only did Killian support the project when we needed it most but he also came on board and offered free surf lessons to over 30 young people every summer throughout the last 5 years. Some of the young people who started out learning to surf 5 years ago are now youth surf coaches!“Killian has provided endless opportunities for the young people. The young people look up and admire Killian as such a positive role model. They really admire the way he is always so kind, giving, and supportive and more importantly fun to be around. We could never thank Killian enough for all he does for the Foroige Bundoran Neighbourhood Youth Project. “He is never too busy to help others. One of the nicest things about Killian is that he has no idea what a difference he makes to help others.”Killian was named Volunteer of the Year in the Youth/Children’s category at the Volunteer Ireland Awards last night.The ceremony was held at Dublin City Hall – and the award presented by RTE’s Keelin Shanley. WHAT A STAR!
