Bragg Gaming Group is proud to announce the launch of the 711.nl sportsbook in the Netherlands, utilizing sports betting technology developed by Kambi.

The extension of the relationship sees Bragg provide access to Kambi’s suite of sportsbook technology through its existing relationship with the provider, with Bragg working with 711.nl to integrate this into its current setup.

The additional integration of sportsbook into 711.nl’s existing offering further benefits the new vertical by allowing access to Bragg’s in-house regulatory reporting tools in addition to marketing and promotional tools for sportsbook available through the Bragg Fuze™ toolset.

Bragg’s unique sportsbook relationship with Kambi allows 711.nl to have the autonomy and control of an in-house developed sportsbook through an outsourced, cost effective solution.

The launch follows the award of a sports betting license to 711.nl by the Dutch Gambling Regulator, the Kansspelautoriteit (KSA), with 711.nl already having a license to operate iGaming in the Dutch market.

711.nl’s sportsbook launch comes ahead of the UEFA European Championship Football tournament final, and the Paris 2024 Olympics which begins at the end of this month.

711.nl currently utilizes Bragg’s Player Account Management (PAM) technology, having previously launched on the Bragg PAM platform in April 2022.

It also uses Bragg’s iGaming content aggregation and product delivery solutions, inclusive of casino content developed by multiple in-house studios and exclusive content from multiple studio partners.

711.nl also uses Fuze™ customer engagement tools in its iGaming operations in the Dutch market, accessing market leading tools which increase user engagement through enabling automated, real-time in-game gamification, conversion and retention mechanisms.

Tools available to online casino and sportsbook operators under the Fuze™ toolset include free rounds, free bets, an AI-powered Game Recommendation System, tournaments, quests and jackpots.

Matej Nemec, Senior Vice President, Commercial, EMEA and LatAm at Bragg, commented: “We’re excited to grow our existing relationship with 711.nl to include this new sportsbook through our partnership with Kambi.

“Our agreement with Kambi is providing a unique mechanism to allow our operator partners to offer sportsbook in a cost effective, time efficient manner.”

Veena Dhesi, SVP Partner Success at Kambi, commented: “We are delighted to once again be teaming up with Bragg to power the launch of the 711.nl sportsbook in the Netherlands.

“Kambi’s deep sports betting offer, which includes sophisticated pricing and trading capabilities as well as an award-winning Bet Builder product perfectly complements Bragg’s PAM expertise, and we look forward to working together to deliver unforgettable sports betting experiences to 711’s players.”

Gilles De Backer, Chief Operating Officer at 711.nl, commented: “Bragg have been a great PAM partner to 711.nl since we first launched in the Dutch market, so it was a definite no-brainer to expand this relationship to include sportsbook for the first time.

“We’re looking forward to seeing how our existing customers and Dutch players in general embrace our new sportsbook.”

SOFTSWISS, a global tech company with over 15 years of experience in iGaming, reports that the Anti-Fraud team within its Managed Services helped clients secure around 6 million euro in H1 2024.

This result highlights a one-third reduction in the amount at risk compared to last year’s figures. By using advanced tools and methodologies to effectively mitigate fraud attempts, including bypassing restrictions and breaching terms, the Anti-Fraud team helps operators create a more secure operating environment.

In the first half of the year, the Anti-Fraud team handled around 54,000 tasks, including operator and verification requests, fraud and responsible gambling notifications. The amount of these requests was 8.5% lower than in H1 2023.

Ilya Nesterov, Anti-Fraud Team Lead, shares: “The most common types of fraud our team deals with are bonus abuse, identity theft and documents forgery, which account for almost 90% of all fraud cases. We are pleased to see the number of operators’ requests and fraud notifications slightly decreased this year. This trend also testifies to a more responsible attitude on the part of players.”

Simultaneously, the number of player complaints submitted to regulators or at industry forums increased by 12.4% year-on-year, reaching 118 for the first six months of 2024. Due to SOFTSWISS extensive expertise in analysing these cases, operators were able to resolve issues, saving their reputation and nearly 250 thousand euro.

The Anti-Fraud team recently implemented an innovative Risk Scoring Tool, capable of identifying potential issues in real time to take proactive measures and provide a safer gaming experience. By embracing new developments and leading responsible gaming practices, the SOFTSWISS team gained recognition in the Responsible Gaming category at the SiGMA Africa Awards.

Partners can book a meeting at the stand 12-F30 at the iGB Live! on 17–18 July to gain more insights on best responsible gambling practices and SOFTSWISS innovative solutions.
