Challenge

Bojoko, an iGaming affiliate based in the United Kingdom and Canada, faced the challenge of getting their press releases noticed by a significant number of publications. Despite previous attempts with other PR companies, they struggled to achieve the desired impact and visibility for their announcements in the competitive iGaming industry.

We have tried a few companies similar to PRNews in the past, but they did not yield the desired results. In fact, most of them did not have any noticeable impact.

IGaming Industry Trends 2023  (Short Interview with Christoffer Ødegården, Head of Casino)   

PRNEWS.IO: What are the latest trends in iGaming, and how can a company stay ahead of the curve in terms of PR and marketing?

Christoffer Ødegården: iGaming is in a constant state of change. New trends are always coming up, and we have to keep up with what players are looking for. Right now, we have seen an explosion of interest in crash games along with the rise of slingo, two relatively new casino game genres, especially in the UK market. Another ongoing trend is the importance of live casino games, as people are interested in the communal aspect of casino gambling.

How we stay ahead of the trends is a multi-faceted approach. We look at what casinos, sportsbooks and bingo sites are promoting, test new operators, and play their latest games. We also keep an eye out for what people are searching online, and of course, we follow all the big game providers to see where their focus lies and what innovations may spike a lot of player interest. 

As a gambling site comparison portal, rather than someone actively creating or promoting games, our knowledge of these trends mainly helps us serve users on our platforms rather than in PR and marketing. That said, we do benchmark the PR coming from our partners and competitors.

PRNEWS.IO: How can iGaming companies effectively navigate the regulatory landscape and communicate their commitment to responsible gaming to the public?

Christoffer Ødegården: The regulatory landscape is a jungle, and as a responsible promoter of safe gambling, we need to know our way around it. But it is not enough for us to understand it; we need to ensure our readers understand it as well.

When it comes to regulatory changes, we follow the industry news. In our case, the United Kingdom Gambling Commission is fortunately very active in informing everyone about their updates and future plans. We know in advance what changes must be made and how to comply with the new regulations. In turn, we ensure that our readers are well-informed about the regulations and that all information they receive from us is up to par.

And we are not the only ones doing this. The operators are also looking for changes to regulations and new rules the UKGC may impose. They need to follow these rules very carefully and ensure that their customers are aware of them. We are in constant communication with the brands we list on our website so that we are aligned when it comes to the big regulatory questions.

In our role as a gambling site comparison platform, a large part of our role is also assessing just how well the operators we review and list tackle the spirit of the regulations, particularly regarding transparency and responsible gambling. While UKGC-licensed brands will follow the regulations at hand or face severe fines, there is also the question of what the regulations aim to achieve, and it is still possible to fall behind the curve. Our experts consistently benchmark the market and offer a clear account of the strengths and weaknesses of each brand in their reviews.

PRNEWS.IO: What are some best practices for crafting compelling press releases and news stories that generate media attention in the iGaming industry?

Christoffer Ødegården: The kinds of press releases you can create depend on the type of iGaming business you are. For example, a game developer is likely to drop a press release every time a new game is released. Meanwhile, other companies may only have something genuinely newsworthy when they reach specific milestones. The budget you have to work with will also play a significant role, and larger businesses can create large-scale marketing campaigns worthy of PR and news stories whenever they wish, team up with big personalities and more.

In terms of best practices, the best advice I can give is to understand that just because you craft a press release, the world doesn’t have to be interested. You need to think outside of your own company and consider the purpose of any given press release and who will be interested in republishing it. Is it a press release for shareholders or your regular followers, or do you wish to attract more widespread attention? If the latter, there are a few things you should do.

The first one is to craft the message in a way that is instantly appealing to publications for republishing. Pick a headline that is captivating and newsworthy, and do so under the assumption that this is the headline that will be used across the board. Don’t beat around the bush. Highlight precisely what is newsworthy, and if not self-explanatory, include why. The same process of not beating around the bush applies to the copy. Don’t hide information you want people to see. Shout it from the rooftops.
