A promising new Casino operator is rising on the iGaming horizon under IoM license. Ocean88 Limited is off to an epic launch with industry leader Delasport by their side. Delasport will provide a full Casino turnkey solution to the company’s new partner, which will also include Delasport’s award-winning managed services.

While Ocean88 is launching a new brand, the team consists of industry veterans who will ensure its swift success. Most of the experts taking on managing roles are professionals who have been in the sector for decades. This is why they know it’s best to trust a renowned software and services supplier like Delasport, resulting in their prominent partnership.

Ocean88 is going to build its own unique front-end over Delasport’s API. This will allow them great flexibility and control over the player experience and design freedom.

They will also benefit from some of Delasport’s latest innovations. Among them is “My Casino” – a personalisation feature allowing players to tailor their lobby so that they can start playing a preferred genre, type, or a specific game directly upon entering the website.

Another highlight among the latest additions, which Ocean88 will utilise is the Booster Panel. Delasport developed this convenient section for mobile UIs to give players easy in-game access to the Deposit button, Meta Jackpot and a number of other extras.

Hot and Cold categories are another perk Ocean88 will benefit from. Their players will get the opportunity to choose whether they’d like to bet on slots that are hot (having high payouts for some time now) or cold ones (that are in a sort of a cooldown winnings-wise).

Rosaire Galea Cavallaro, VP of Business Development at Delasport, said: “We have strengthened our Casino products remarkably in the last year and we are proud to say that it is the best casino out there. Ocean88 brand players will soon enjoy a superior casino experience boosted with cross-providers jackpot, in-game quick deposit on mobile devices, and more.”

Ocean88 CEO David B. said: “Having a strong partner by our side is key for running a successful operation. We looked for a partner that could assist us with all product aspects and support us with our will to differentiate in the markets. Delasport’s solution comes with a full API suite that allows us to develop our own front-end and fully control the UX.”

The result of the partnership between Delasport and Ocean88 will go live later this year.

Julie Harrington to Step Down as BHA Chief Executive at the End of 2024

Julie Harrington has announced that she will leave her job as Chief Executive of the British Horseracing Authority (BHA) at the end of the year after four years in the role.

Julie has overseen significant changes to the BHA and British Horseracing including a new governance structure, achieving cross-industry support for the sport’s long-term Industry Strategy and setting its underpinning architecture securely in place, structural and operational changes at the BHA itself, work on a new People Strategy with the introduction of the Horseracing Industry People Board, and a renewed focus on improving commercial opportunities.

Commenting on her decision to step down, Julie said: “With so much now in place to develop and grow the Industry Strategy, which will secure a brighter future for British horseracing, it felt like the right time to move on and let someone else steer the sport through its next exciting phase.

“It has been a huge privilege to lead the BHA during what has been a period of real change as the sport has developed and implemented shared strategies for a sustainable future, and an ability to speak with one united voice.

“I love working in horseracing, it is an amazing sport to be involved in. I will always be a fan and you can expect to see me at the races in the years ahead. I am proud of the progress the industry has made over the past three years, especially in improving the governance structure, and I hope that racing’s stakeholders will continue to work together cooperatively to attract new audiences, further improve the customer experience and grow the sport.

“I am confident that if the sport continues to foster the sense of unity and shared purpose that we have developed over the past few years then great things can be achieved.

“My future plans are likely to include a move to a varied non-executive career. Although I took the decision to stand down some time ago, I have agreed to stay on until the end of year to allow a smooth transition to a new CEO.

“The BHA Board is already engaged in the search for Joe’s successor as Chair and informing the Board of my intentions now gives the nominations committee the opportunity to plan an orderly handover, consider the complementary skills of candidates and allow the new Chair to be part of the final stages of CEO recruitment.

“British Horseracing is one of the cornerstones of our sporting and cultural heritage. I will be forever thankful to have had the opportunity to be a part of it, both during my tenures at Northern Racing, on the BHA Board and most recently as CEO of the BHA. I wish it every success in the years to come.”

Joe Saumarez Smith will step down as Chair of the BHA at the end of May 2025 and the recruitment process for his replacement commenced last month.

Joe Saumarez Smith said: “Julie has been a fantastic chief executive for the BHA and has done a huge amount for the industry since her appointment. We have been lucky to have her in charge and she will be difficult to replace. I am grateful she has agreed to stay on to the end of the year to allow us to recruit her replacement and to ensure a smooth transition.

“During Julie’s tenure we have completely changed the governance of the sport and the BHA’s role within it. Her influencing skills, often behind-the-scenes, have been key to that change and also in the positive adjustments made to the Gambling Act White Paper that posed such a threat to our sport.

“Four years at the top of any sport demands total focus, concentration and enormous amounts of energy and Julie has delivered all of these, in what at times has been a challenging stakeholder and political environment. I, and the BHA Board, fully understand why she has taken this decision now and wish her every success in her future roles.”

Julie also paid tribute to her executive team and the BHA staff, stating: “We have a hugely talented and passionate team at the BHA. From the executive leadership team, those working day in, day out on course or from our new smaller HQ in Holborn Gate, it really is a team effort. It is a team that has undergone a great deal of change in the past few years and one that is dedicated to delivering for our sport. With a busy period ahead, the whole BHA will remain focused on delivering a great service.”
