Habanero Systems

About the company

Habanero Systems (usually just Habanero for short) is one of the “2010s” providers. During the last 6 years, the company has not only managed to earn the spot in the “gambling elite” but also master several business niches. Habanero is a European provider constantly extending the sphere of its influence. The company’s offices have a perfect geographic location (based in the capital cities of Ukraine, Bulgaria, South Africa, and the Philippines). It strengthens the brand’s positions almost all over the world (the only market left unexplored is America). Software developed by Habanero is certified by BMM Testlabs and iTech Labs, which guarantees the best quality, transparency, and fairness of all the provider’s gambling solutions. Since 2016 Habanero has never missed an influential gambling event. The company has entered ICE, EiG, and iGB.

How Habanero Systems got started?

Habanero Systems B.V. was founded in 2010 and during the first couple of years wasn’t particularly popular in the gambling world. But the thighs have changed drastically in 2012 when the company was bought out by a group of European investors. Right after that Habanero has started working on developing new games for the portfolio and exploring new markets outside EU and CIS. In 2014 Habanero’s team has begun the active expansion into Asia. The company has opened an office in Manila and by 2016 became one of the top four RNG-providers in Asia.2016 was a turning point for Habanero. The business triumph in Asia has turned a small unknown team into a force to be reckoned with. Besides that, by the end of 2016, all of the Habanero’s games were switched to HTML5. The same year the company has entered ICE in London and EiG in Berlin for the first time and was shortlisted as “The best online supplier” and “The best mobile solution” for the Asia Gaming Awards.

Owner, revenue & net worth

As mentioned above, Habanero Systems B.V. is privately held by a group of European investors. The company’s staff is a little over 100 employees.The CEO position is held by Nic Ioannoy. Daniel Long, who has previously worked for Microgaming, is the Head of Sales (since 2015). Habanero Systems B.V. is not listed on stock markets. The income data is a part of the commercially sensitive information, however, according to the official press release, the company’s gross gaming revenue in 2018 may nearly double in comparison to 2017.

What it takes to open a bank account for an igaming business?

With the tightening of gambling legislation, it becomes tricky to open a business bank account for one’s online casino with more banks refusing to provide this service to gambling ventures.

Banks tend to avoid working with high-risk companies, where belong online casinos, sportsbooks and other forms of gambling businesses. In this situation some operators prefer to hold other accounts, which are not properly authorised.

If you want to run a legal casino, in which players feel safe to play, you should open a business bank account for your company.

Peculiarities of banking for gambling businesses

Banks may decline opening you an account because of you not having a proper gaming licence. Lately, more banks began demanding a European (Maltese) licence, while casinos usually work under a Curacao or another non-European licence because of their cost-efficiency and universality.

Even if you have one, you have to keep your hand on the pulse to comply with changing legal regulations and banking requirements. You also have to know how to go through the process of application, like understanding DD requirements, collecting necessary documents and filling in questionnaires.

If you don’t have experience, this process may appear to be lengthy, troublesome and, in the end, useless. So, if you don’t succeed in opening an account on your own, you should seek a professional assistance.

Intermediaries can help

The problem may be not with banks themselves. Sometimes, you need to contact a bank through a company that has established strong cooperation with it, so contacting an intermediary may be a good solution.

By the way, if you think that turning to intermediaries is a waste of money, it is right only if you have a considerable experience and connections in the industry. In most cases, it is better to turn to specialists and let them do their job.

Withal, intermediaries offer more than one service. For instance, if you start your gambling business, you not only need a bank account, but also a company, a licence, a gambling-friendly hosting, a bonus system, promotion – basically all kinds of services. You can simply contact such a company and get a customised casino with games, bonuses and all necessary features, ready for launch in two months, so that you could focus on its promotion completely. Not that hard it is to open a casino than to make it profitable, as shows bitter experience of countless casinos that disappeared quickly. This is why many future casino operators prefer using the services of intermediary companies.

It is up to you to decide whether you could do everything on your own or you need a professional assistance, but at least you know the advantages of the latter option.

Blockchain and licensing blockchain projects

Gaminglicensing offers licences for blockchain projects. If you run or plan to start such a project, just contact our experts to get it.

If you would like to learn more about the blockchain technology and its connection with online casinos, read on.

What is Blockchain?

Blockchain is a chain of blocks that contain encoded information. One block of information contains data, hash and hash of previous block. For instance, the data section of Bitcoin contains data about the sender, the recipient and the amount of transaction. A hash is the unique number of a block, comparable to a fingerprint, consequently, the hash of the previous block is its unique number. So, each block contains the information about the previous block, creating the chain of blocks.
licensing of blockchain projects SoftGamings

Some history of Blockchain technology

This technology was originally invented in 1991 for timestamping digital documents so that it would be impossible to tamper or backdate them. However, the technique did not gain popularity until “Satoshi Nakamoto”, a person or a group of people who developed Bitcoin in 2009.

How cryptocurrency is used today

Today, the technique actually has tens of applications. The most well-known is of course payment processing and money transfers. The advantage of using cryptocurrency for that is in the fact that you avoid third parties, thus accelerating the process, with some transactions taking only a few seconds. The Blockchain technology is also used for medical recordkeeping, which removes much of paperwork and protects patients’ privacy. The technology is used in many more ways, including e-notary, monitoring supply chains, data sharing, digital voting and even collecting taxes.

Blockchain technology in the igaming industry

Many online casino operators and igaming platform developers offer bitcoins and other cryptocurrencies as payment methods. For instance, SoftGamings offers a Bitcoin platform solution, which lets casino players pay in the most popular cryptocurrencies, like Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum and the cryptocurrencies based on these ones.

Recently first online casinos started using blockchain technology for creating games based on cryptocurrencies. It means that the currencies used in games themselves are cryptocurrencies.

The technical solution for each of such projects is individual, being a commercial secret of an operator. However, this idea has a great potential for development, and if you decide to start a cryptocurrency project, you will be among the first to offer a unique innovative technological product.

Licensing of cryptocurrency projects

To run a cryptocurrency project you need a licence. Actually, it is the same Curacao licence, but it has additional parameters. It takes a little longer to get the licence because of the process of registration.You also have to provide your games certificate and business plan.

NetEnt pooled jackpots — millionaire foundry

If you think about it, player retention should not be the main topic for discussion for a newly launched casino. The argument would go that a new casino should focus on player acquisition, and player retention should come much later: when the casino has built confidence in attracting new players, has tested its processes, its payment systems, its support and so on. Once the player base is in tens of thousands, retention processes and strategies can be employed for player activation and retention.

Types of Jackpots

Progressive jackpot appears to be a prize pool accumulating small percentage deductions of each bet placed. Consequently, every time the gamblers clicks the “Spin” button on the licensed NetEnt soft from 1% to 5% of the bet is added to the total amount.

Considering the fact the chances of winning such a sizable amount of money are quite small, But most of the solutions have several jackpot types. The smaller the value the higher the chances of winning.

E.g. “Mega Fortune” allows the person to win one of the 3 jackpots: Mega — accumulating 5,39% of each bet; Major — 1,1%; Rapid — 1%. The current jackpot value is always shown on top of the screen. The opportunity to hit that jackpot appears during the bonus game. The player has to reach the center of the wheel containing the “Mega Jackpot” area.

Netent jackpots SoftGamings

“Cosmic Fortune” slot offers 5 progressive jackpots simultaneously. Deductions vary from 1% to 3,8%. The jackpots are drawn during the bonus round that may remind pinball.

NetEnt jackpots Cosmic Fortune SoftGamings

“Caribbean Stud Poker” offers another kind of jackpot. It accumulates not the percentage deductions but special side bets of €1. Therefore, the jackpot grows slower. It’s paid only to the gambler who got “Royal Flush”. The other poker combinations (“3 of a kind” or higher) will bring the gambler a fixed odds bonuses.

SoftGamings Caribbean Stud Poker NetEnt

Records

“Mega Fortune” got two mentions in the Guinness World Records: the highest online slot payout — €17,86 mln. and the highest mobile payout — €8,6 mln.

Local and Pooled jackpots

Progressives are either local or pooled. The local one combines deductions (in %) of each bet in a separate casino. Pooled ones are formed the same way but they accumulate the money from all online & brick and mortar casinos using NetEnt’s licensed soft.

Local jackpots are always smaller. Despite that, they’re still popular among the gamblers because it’s easier to win.

If you’re looking for a game offering a pooled jackpot only, “Arabian Nights” is your pick. It’s among four most popular progressive jackpots powered by NetEnt.

To hit that mega win the gambler needs to form an active payout line with 5 joker-genies.

SoftGamings local and global jackpots NetEnt

The list of games equipped only with local jackpots has more names in it. Including “Super Lucky Frog”, “Caribbean Stud Poker”, “Mega Joker”, “Cosmic Fortune”, and “Divine Fortune”. Most of these games offer several jackpots simultaneously, which are distinguished by the deductions’ percentage.

SoftGamings local jackpots

The most profitable jackpot for the modern operators is certainly the “mixed” one. Like “Mega Fortune” or “Hall of Gods”. These games offer a “Mega” jackpot (which is pooled) & all of the others are local.

SoftGamings Hall of Gods, Mega Fortune Dream

Graphs & Statistics

The checklist of the most claimed NetEnt’s progressive jackpots consists of “Arabian Nights”, “Hall of Gods”, “Mega Fortune” and its “Dreams” version. Gambling those in 2017 the gamesters all over the world won 321 jackpot with a total payout of €78,3 mln.

At the same time, NetEnt’s progressive jackpots remain a great tool for each operator helping to attract the new visitors and keep the target audience engaged (especially high rollers).

Once the gambler hit the jackpot or won a pot of money, (s)he will definitely return to the casino that brought him/her luck. On top of that, it’s highly likely (s)he will recommend this casino to others. And considering the fact that NetEnt’s payout scheme is both fair and profitable (90% of the amount is paid by the network and 10% — by the operator) NetEnt’s progressive jackpot games can become a value-enhancing investment.

Winning a jackpot

When it comes to progressives, the “Glory days” started in 2011, when the “Mega Fortune” slot appeared in the Guinness Book of Records and brought the lucky man a win of €11,7 mln.

This record didn’t stay for long, though. In 2013 it was topped and the payout of €17,86 mln. a Finnish player has received still stays the highest.

Anyways, not only “Mega Fortune” slot has a power to turn gamblers into millionaires. The other games are just as profitable. In 2012 a gambler from Sweden has received a payout of €7,82 mln. (“Hall of Gods” slot). The same year “Arabian Nights” slot brought a mega win to a “Paf Casino” user — €8,63 mln. and “Mega Fortune Dreams” — €5,5 mln. A gambler’s lure!

How to add NetEnt’s games to your casino?

If NetEnt’s progressive jackpots still somehow are not a part of your casino’s portfolio, you have an opportunity to fix it immediately and significantly increase the level of engagement. You can do it just by booking one (or several) of the following services provided by Softgamings.

Startups and player retention

If you think about it, player retention should not be the main topic for discussion for a newly launched casino. The argument would go that a new casino should focus on player acquisition, and player retention should come much later: when the casino has built confidence in attracting new players, has tested its processes, its payment systems, its support and so on. Once the player base is in tens of thousands, retention processes and strategies can be employed for player activation and retention.

Playson. The success story. From Maltese startup to the European gambling leader

About Playson Company

Playson is a Maltese gambling content provider, which first appeared on the market in 2012.

During the last 5 years, the company had intensified its efforts to strengthen the European market presence. Currently, Playson has Maltese offices (including the headquarters in Ta’ Xbiex and an office in Sliema) and Ukraine (Kiev and Odessa). You may also find the info that Playson has offices in other Eastern European countries (Russia, Belarus) but it does not reflect the actual situation.

As on January 2018, Playson remains a privately held company having several hundreds of employees and is not listed on the international stock markets unlike some of its competitors.

Playson’s focus area is B2B sector (gaming platforms and B2C casino operators).


How Playson Got Started?

Despite the fact that the company was officially registered in 2012, the gambling community found out about it only in 2014, when the first set of games was introduced on the largest gambling-related trade show ICE in London. Since then Playson participates in almost every major gambling trade show all over the world (ICE, iGaming super show, EiG, iGaming Summit SIGMA, G2E Asia).

The reason why the company “kept itself in the background” for two years is that during that period of time Playson was building and strengthening the partnership with the leading gambling platforms and operators worldwide.

At present Playson is a partner of SoftGamings, NYX, Microgaming Quickfire, MediaTech and other platforms. The list of the partnering operators includes 1xBet, Betsson Group, Hero Gaming etc.

In 2015 the company got the UK Gambling Commission license. As on January 2018, it remains the only license Playson obtains. And the info regarding Alderney and Maltese licenses granted to the provider is incorrect (Playson obtained the Alderney license in 2015, but later it lapsed).

Playson’s soft is certified by the internationally accredited test lab Quinel M. Ltd.


Owner, Revenue & Net Worth

As mentioned before, Playson is a privately held company (its full name is Playson Ltd.) and it is not listed on the international stock markets. So all the info regarding its revenue and net worth is non-public. Playson’s executives are Adam Daniel (Managing Director) and Ivan Farrugia (Director). And Alex Ivshin is company’s IT-Director.


Key Moments

  • All of the provider’s games are omnichannel and HTML5-based, which means they can be played using any device (both PC and mobile)
  • Playson’s portfolio isn’t super large (only 45 games in total at this time) but the quality of each game is up to the highest standards. You just won’t find one unpopular or poorly executed game created by this provider
  • Playson’s developers not only use the 3D-graphics, which most of the gamblers have already accustomed to, but also gamification elements, which is still pretty exotic for the modern gambling industry
  • The company offers not only stuff for the online casinos but also various solutions for the brick and mortar casinos. The slot portfolio is enhanced with some table games and video poker

Products and Services

Slots are the Playson’s main forte. As on January 2018, there are 37 different slot games in the provider’s collection. The topics used vary from the classic fruit slots to pirate, space, festive or mythology-inspired (and many more).

Every game has a clear concept, a beautiful design, a nice enchanting soundtrack and a schtick, something that helps it stand out from the thousands of other slots out there.

E.g. the “Down the Pub” slot earned its place in the sun due to the combination of 3D-graphics and a unique bonus round, which is a real game within the game. During the bonus round the gambler gets a chance to play the old-school slot (and the game is not over until the gambler uses all of the 3 lives awarded to him in the beginning).

Playson games Softgamings

Playson Softgamings


“Viking Gods Thor & Loki” is an outstanding sample of gamification working for the gambling product. Once the gambler starts spinning the reels (s)he gets 4 achievements to fulfill. After finishing all 4 tasks the gambler gets an auto bonus round with the free spins. The progress can be tracked in the top left corner.

Playson Viking Gods Softgamings

Such an approach helps to keep the gambler in the game longer than ever. Everyone wants to get that prize bonus round and spends more time spinning the reels.

Besides that, the slot has many extra bonus features like the “sticky wild” during the bonus game or the vertical bonus symbol generating wilds on the side reels.


Table games and poker

Apart from the slots, Playson offers the operators 3 types of roulette, 3 types of blackjack and 2 types of video poker. And just like the slots, the table games also have an outstanding quality, elegant design, and a thought-out UI/UX. So none of the Playson’s table games seem like unfinished or non-merchantable.

Playson table games and poker SoftGamings

Playson poker and table games

Playson’s games are so good that the most popular online casinos in the world strive to get those into their collections. You may find Playson at Pokerstars (a part of the world-known poker network), Mr. Green, VBet, Slots Million and many others.

And not least, Playson took care of the comfortable integration of all the games. So the operator may choose from either the direct seamless integration or an integration using the preferred platform. Besides that, the company also offers the development of unique customized slots (including branded ones) to satisfy all of the operator’s needs.
