“TVBET believes PGS is an excellent chance to meet new confederates ready to grow in LatAm with us”

With Peru Gaming Show set to hold its anniversary 20th edition this week, the major Latin American trade event returns for a busy schedule of convention floor action and panels from June 13-15 at the Jockey Exposition Center in Lima. With a new PGS around the corner, major stakeholders in the gambling industry are ready to showcase their latest solutions and network with like-minded players and potential new clients.

Among the extensive list of companies assisting the event is B2B gaming provider TVBET, ready to showcase its latest live-streaming solutions to operators in the continent. Ahead of PGS, Yogonet caught up with William Lozano, TVBET’s Sales and Business Development Manager in LATAM, to discuss the keys of the company’s portfolio for the region and what the business expects from the event.

TVBET will attend the upcoming edition of the Peru Gaming Show. What do you expect from the exhibition? What new products are you planning to surprise us with?

Our team will gladly visit Peru Gaming Show this year; we will exhibit at stand 78A. We believe this expo is an excellent chance for us to meet new confederates ready to grow their business in Latin America together with us! We’re inviting everybody to our stand to have a talk and discuss possible cooperation. We have incredible solutions to bring to the LATAM iGaming market.  

As for new products, we have some exciting novelties! First of all, we recently launched our new game, Fast KENO, which we’re really proud of. People familiar with our products may wonder why we are launching a second KENO. And the answer is – yes, we already have KENO in our portfolio, and we won’t remove it. We’re just adding the second version of the game – Fast KENO, which will be faster than its predecessor. The pause between draws is much lower, allowing players to play their favorite game with minimal breaks. So now punters may choose between two KENOs!

And one more exciting product which we’re adding to our kit is El Casino – the new Live Casino Direction. If previously we were proposing only live TV games, now we’re offering for integration Live Dealer games too!

TVBET is actively growing in LATAM. What expansions will we see in the near future, and which countries are a priority?

The Latin American market is of high priority for us. And we see the interest of players in our games. It’s no surprise: citizens of Latin America are fans of football and betting on this sport, while we offer exciting live games with betting options and dynamic odds, which is so familiar to bettors.

Now, we’re actively expanding in Colombia, Mexico, Argentina, Peru, etc. We aim to grow as wide as possible. We’re engaged in bringing our games into more online and offline casinos and bookmakers here. We believe that we can impress local operators with the high quality and easy integration of our products, which will give stable income to them.

Brazil is a market that has been gaining momentum and where regulation is expected soon for the sports betting industry. Is this a jurisdiction of interest for TVBET?

Yes, Brazil is on the cusp of regulation, and of course, it is a potentially huge market for us to develop. We look forward to when the market will finally begin to be regulated in Brazil.

As soon as the new regulation comes into effect, Brazil will become the largest land-based and online sports betting market on the continent, with a population of 200 million people who have a particular passion for football. At the same time, I’m sure that football fans will also enjoy our odds-based live games. Operators should already think about what to connect before launching in Brazil.

According to experts’ forecasts, the sports betting market here will reach $1 billion within five years from the start of legalization. So, we expect a grandiose opening of the market and development on it!

What games are currently the most popular in the LATAM market?

Among our most popular live games in Latin America, KENO, WheelBet and Lucky6 took the lead in 2022. All these live games are varieties of lotteries, each of which is quite well-known to many players. More details about these games and their rules can be found on our website in the Demo Section.

If we talk about the reasons why they are so popular among LATAM players, then this is their simplicity and wide betting lines. Understanding the rules does not take much time since they are already known to the public at large. By the way, we’re the only provider of Lucky 6!

Mobile technologies are actively developing in Latin America. Do you have any mobile solutions for your games?

For sure, mobile betting is preferred in Latin America. We understand this and keep up with the times. Our frame is developed in such a way that it can be easily adapted to any format, whether it’s a PC, a tablet, or a smartphone.

Operators will be able to integrate our games into their mobile applications easily, or if there is no mobile application, our games still seem to fit perfectly on any player’s screen.

What about land-based casinos and bookmakers? Can they integrate your games and accept bets on them? If yes, how?

Certainly! Many land-based operators connect our games because our product works great both online and offline. The process of TVBET live games integration to land-based casinos and betting shops does not require a large investment and can be easily connected to a partner’s equipment which is already installed at the point of sale.

Operators need a stable internet connection to stream our games in real time. Unfortunately, not in all regions of Latin America, the Internet works properly and smoothly. But for such cases, we have two options for connecting TVBET games – Virtual Games and Satellite Solutions.  

Virtual Games are a huge library with hundreds of thousands of pre-recorded live games that we have been running since 2017 24/7. A vast media base of pre-recorded games allows partners to broadcast them offline, maintaining the randomness of the outcomes. Multiple recorded draws for each game eliminate the repetition of game outcomes, so players get a similar experience as in live streaming.

Satellite Solution allows broadcasting our games through the satellite, which means that no Internet connection is needed. Satellite provides fast signal transmission and maintains picture quality, so live games function in real time. This service is adaptive, and details can be customized.

We are open to new offers in Latin America, and we will gladly discuss all the details of connecting our games at the Peru Gaming Show. We invite all operators to visit our booth 78A.
