Tech issues due to demand see leading sports gambling sites crash during Super Bowl LV
By admin | | 0 Comments |

Prior to Sunday’s big game, the American Gaming Association (AGA) announced that according to new research, 23.2 million Americans planned to bet a staggering $4.3 billion on Super Bowl LV. And that a record 7.6 million of those Super Bowl bettors will place wagers with online sportsbooks in 2021, up 63 percent year-over-year. President and Chief Executive Officer for the AGA, Bill Miller said… “This year’s Super Bowl is expected to generate the largest single-event legal handle in American sports betting history. With a robust legal market, Americans are abandoning illegal bookies and taking their action into the regulated marketplace in record numbers.” Crash and burn: With that being said, no one could’ve predicted that the demand to bet on the game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the defending champion Kansas City Chiefs, would see major sports gambling sites crash during the biggest game of the year but that’s exactly what happened. And instead of attracting new customers onto their platforms, technical issues and outages left some of the industry’s biggest sports betting firms including BetMGM, FanDuel, DraftKings, and Barstool Sports, scrambling to find solutions. According to CNBC, ten minutes prior to kickoff, MGM Resorts International‘s sportsbook platform, BetMGM, could not accept bets. Complaints by angry patrons flooded social media as technicians hurriedly worked to resolve the problem. However, at the end of the game, the issue had yet to be resolved, leaving bets unsettled by MGM. Customer ire: And while FanDuel ads reportedly encouraged customers to take advantage of “free play” offers leading up to the big game, the Flutter Entertainment-owned sports betting company also experienced outages, which, according to the operator were intermittent and due to demand exceeding expectations. However, according to FanDuel, at no time during the 3-plus hour game did its platform cease to operate. Apparently, the majority of the glitches were seen in Michigan, where online betting went live on Jan. 22, 2021, making it the tenth state where FanDuel offers mobile sports betting. Gamblers did not take kindly to the shut-down, with one clearly frustrated patron’s Twitter rant, “how is it that i’m seeing fanduel commercials on my television almost rubbing it in that i can’t even place a bet on your app that crashes any time there’s a reasonably large sporting event.” FanDuel’s explanation regarding the outages reportedly came as a surprise to both industry insiders and other gambling platform operators. CNBC reports that it was told by a leading executive… “We all expected this to be a record-breaking event for online and mobile gambling. We had tech meeting after tech meeting leading up to Sunday to make sure things ran smoothly.” Other outages: Similar issues were experienced by Penn National Gaming’s Barstool Sports and DraftKings, and while the former blamed third-party tech issues for its app going down and stopped short of directly calling out one of its partners, Kambi, the Massachusetts-based sports betting company apparently did just that. “It appears this outage was caused by a surge in traffic that caused problems for our backend provider. Our DFS (Daily Fantasy Sports) and pools products, supported by in-house technology, are functioning without issue. This incident is why we believe owning our own technology is important, said DraftKings in a statement. Soon after completing its reverse merger with special-purpose acquisition company Diamond Eagle Acquisition Corp. last April, DraftKings announced that it would be terminating its partnership with the global sports gambling provider no earlier than September 2021. The announcement came about a year after the two firms signed a contract extension; the same one that Chief Executive Officer for DraftKings, Jason Robbins, said, “Kambi has been a key partner for DraftKings.” Bet volumes: Kambi reportedly told CNBC that it processed three times the bet volumes as it did for last year’s Superbowl, making this year’s the highest in its history. It [Kambi] added that overall load wasn’t the problem, rather “one specific player-related bet offer and its increased range of outcomes offered,” resulting in a backlog validating other wagers and subsequent, problematic performance. Players who were assumed to have been affected by the outages were reportedly issued $20 credits by DraftKings, while its rival Fanduel said that in spite of the issues, it paid out $27 million to customers, with $17 million of that going to new players. Smooth sailing: While some sports betting platforms were overwhelmed by surging demand, others including PointsBet and William Hill reportedly said their operations during the Super Bowl were not affected by technical issues. Chief Executive Officer for PointsBet, Johnny Aitken said, “It helps being in sole control of your technology,” while Union Gaming analyst John DeCree offered… “The stress on the platforms is an indication of how big the potential is for sports gambling. I don’t think one incident on the biggest night of the year is going to dissuade these players permanently.” Ratings fail: Broadcast on CBS, Sunday’s game reportedly produced the worst viewer ratings since Super Bowl XLI in 2007, when the Indianapolis Colts defeated the Chicago Bears. Citing a Tuesday announcement by ViacomCBS, CNBC reports that this year’s big game failed to top 100 million viewers, instead attracting 96.4 million viewers for the television broadcasting company. Since last year’s Super Bowl, which had a decidedly different outcome for the Mahomes-led Chiefs, 36 million more American adults are now able to bet in legal markets from their home state, with seven new jurisdictions including Colorado, Illinois, Michigan, Montana, Tennessee, Virginia, and Washington, DC, having joined the fray, according to the AGA.

Resorts World plans to open gambling hall with electronic games inside Newburgh Mall
By admin | | 0 Comments |

Orange County in New York State could soon become a major gaming hub if Resorts World Catskills’ plan to open a new electronic gaming casino at the struggling Newburgh Mall come to fruition. The project was originally set for the former Nepera Chemical plant in the village of Harriman, however, those plans fell through after an environmental review of the land showed that it was more contaminated than was previously thought and would not be buildable for nearly a decade. Long-term vision: In a recent statement to the Times Herald-Record, Genting, the parent company of Resorts World said… “Developing a video gaming machine facility in Orange County has, for many years, been part of Resorts World’s long-term vision for Hudson Valley and the Catskills. It will create hundreds of good-paying unions jobs, generate significant revenue for New York’s public schools, and is an important step in ensuring the long-term sustainability of Resorts World Catskills.” Enabling legislation: Legislation sponsored by state Sen. James Skoufis (D-Hudson Valley) was passed in June 2019 allowing video-lottery terminals (VLTs) from gaming operations at Monticello Raceway in neighboring Sullivan County, which ceased on April 22, 2019, to be relocated to Orange County. And while it [the bill] did not specify a location, Skoufis had reportedly pushed for Resorts World to build its VLT hall at the former chemical plant that closed in 2005. Contamination concerns: As part of the deal for the original project, the senator required that the chemical plant property be cleaned by Resorts World parent company, Empire Resorts, which is 88.7 percent owned by Kien Huat Realty Sdn Bhd of Genting Group, and that it pay taxes in full to the Monroe-Woodbury School District, Town of Woodbury, and villages of Harriman and Woodbury. Both of the conditions were agreed to at the time. Citing a press release from Skoufis’ office, a source reports that the senator said at the time… “I’m not particularly pro- or anti-gambling so I used this opportunity to deliver real, substantive economic benefits to the constituents I represent. The former Nepera Chemical Plant property has been a contaminated blight in our community for years; as a result of this project, it will now be cleaned, put back on the tax rolls and employ approximately 400 local residents.” Newburgh site: According to the Times Herald-Record, the gambling hall in Newburgh is expected to employ as many as 225 people and be completed within a year once Resorts World has received the necessary approvals from the city of Newburgh and the New York State Gaming Commission. It has yet to be determined just how many electronic gaming machines will be housed at the proposed Newburgh site, which is located on Route 300. When gaming operations ended in 2019, Monticello Raceway reportedly had 1,100 VLTs, which it had hosted since 2004. Plans for the current project are scheduled to be presented to the Newburgh Town Board by Resorts World on Feb. 22. Meanwhile, Town Supervisor Gil Piaquadio said that in order to allow gaming in that area, the board would have to amend its zoning, and would also require approval from the Planning Board once an environmental review is performed, as reported by the news agency.
