How do you evaluate SOFTSWISS’ interim performance results of 2023?

We have record numbers for most of our products in the first half of 2023. We’ve picked up a good pace, so I think we’ve done quite well in  the first half of the year.  The strategy we’ve chosen and are following is paying off. We expect that the second half of the year will be even better for us. Reinforcing this idea with some numbers I am proud to note the SOFTSWISS Game Aggregator has achieved a breakthrough milestone by surpassing 10,000,000,000 euro in Total Bets across all projects in July and August.

As planned, we have achieved  all-time record-breaking figures across the entire product range.

The SOFTSWISS Anti-fraud Team helped our clients save more than 9.2 million euro during the first half of 2023.

The SOFTSWISS Jackpot Aggragator achieved the significant milestone of 60 partner brands.

The GGR among all Sportsbook clients soared by 769%, while the total turnover rose by 254% year-on-year.

iGaming brands, collaborating with Affilka by SOFTSWISS, harnessed its power to draw in over 10 million new players through affiliates.

Our commitment to progress remains unwavering and we maintain the current growth momentum. Perfection has no bounds, and our team embodies the spirit of relentless pursuit: “Citius, altius, fortius – communiter” like the Olympians.

We have no intention of resting on our laurels. In fact, we are geared towards accelerating our growth even further and with greater vigour.

 

For the last few years SOFTSWISS has been creating an iGaming ecosystem. Why is this approach important for the company?

SOFTSWISS has been talking about its software ecosystem for quite a while, first and foremost as a ‘one-stop shop’. We provide our clients with a fairly wide range of products.

The Casino Platform empowers clients to oversee player accounts, payment services, game vendors, and access reporting and analytics, providing a complete back office for their online casino brand management. The powerful and proven software platform is a reliable foundation for strengthening and growing business by adding new products.

With our Game Aggregator hub, it is easy and seamless to add a massive portfolio of over 16,000 games through just one API integration.

The Sportsbook, a sports betting software platform, was created for launching a bookmaker business online with over 200 sports.

The Jackpot Aggregator aims to increase operator revenue by strengthening brand competitiveness, acquiring new players and retaining existing ones, and growing their life-time value and bet sum.

The affiliate management and tracking software Affilka by SOFTSWISS, was developed with the needs of both iGaming operators and affiliate partners in mind.

Moreover, we offer Managed Services, a suite of services aimed at helping operators overcome day-to-day operational challenges.

This is the ecosystem that covers essentially all verticals in the iGaming business.

So, this is not a new trend for us. We have been actively engaged in building an ecosystem of cross-integrated products. It’s almost like a Lego just for the iGaming business. Our slogan, ‘Winning Combination, perfectly encapsulates this, emphasising the importance of creating successful product synergies.

This year, we implemented the integration between the Jackpot Aggregator and Sportsbook, and we recently completed the integration of the Jackpot Aggregator and Game Aggregator.

We are constantly pushing the boundaries of innovation and functionality. We definitely make an emphasis on how our products communicate with each other, and how that makes them better.

 

What are your expectations for the iGaming industry for the rest of the year?

I anticipate a sustained growth in the industry. Things are about to change in terms of legal and compliance, and in terms of working in some jurisdictions like Curacao.

We are definitely very attentive to the LatAm region. The Latin American iGaming market is poised for rapid growth due to growing acceptance of gambling regulation, large population and a growing middle class, as well as its cultural values and, of course, high mobile adoption .

All these factors make this region a prime frontier for both domestic and international operators to explore. This anticipated surge in development holds the potential to reshape the regional gaming landscape and provide lucrative opportunities for industry leaders.

Naturally, we are closely monitoring the cryptocurrency market, which is a big component of our business. However, we do not anticipate any major disruptions or external upheavals. Our expectations align with a steadily expanding market.

 

What is SOFTSWISS preparing for the SBC Summit Barcelona, 19-21 September? What can visitors expect?

At the core of SOFTSWISS’ imaginative idea for the event is how we view success in the iGaming realm. Taking cues from the renowned Spanish artists, who embody the cultural identity of the event’s host country, SOFTSWISS will portray its pioneering solutions as contemporary cornerstones of the industry.Under the banner ‘Make your business a classic’, our experts invite industry leaders to delve into the revolutionary possibilities offered by our comprehensive suite of solutions.

As always we will have one of the largest booths at the exhibition. The highlight of the booth will be illustrations painted in the style of famous artists, dedicated to each of the SOFTSWISS products. Naturally, we took care to be able to communicate productively with our partners and build a cosy and stylish meeting room at the stand.

Our clients can expect us to be happy to talk to them about our innovations, which we certainly have.

The Game Aggregator’s tournaments features are actively being used by clients.

At the same time, the Jackpot Aggregator is rolling out network jackpots and the time-based jackpot. Be sure to ask the team about the results of the integration with the Game Aggregator.

As always expect us to welcome clients new and old at our stand. And of course, we will be happy to give you a sneak peek of the latest innovations we’ve introduced since the last event.
