Award-winning sportsbook enhances Latin American offering with new deal
Altenar, the leading sportsbook and iGaming software provider, has boosted its presence in Latin America thanks to an agreement with Mexican operator, Winpot.
The new partnership will see Altenar provide its state-of-the-art software and award-winning services to Winpot with the product going live on both online and retail channels.
Established in 2006, Winpot can also boast a state-of-the-art platform, Wiztech, which offers customers the choice of over 12,000 games from more than 70 suppliers.
Thanks to the deal, the operator will be set to greatly boost its sports betting offering via Altenar’s wide selection of virtual sports, lottery and quinielas (the Hispanic equivalent of pool coupons for football).
As well as online, Winpot is active in 19 different locations across the country and has plans to greatly increase its reach across the Mexican market thanks to Altenar’s inhouse retail terminal system.
Offering one of LatAm’s most advanced in-shop solutions, Altenar’s retail technology provides a fully customizable player experience, built with a front-end to suit Winpot’s bespoke requirements.
Commenting on the deal, Angelos Stravelas, Account Manager at Altenar, said: “We are delighted to begin our journey with Winpot, who is undoubtedly one of Mexico’s biggest iGaming companies. To extend our footprint within Mexico is a real coup for us and with Winpot having over 15 years’ experience in the region, it will be able to showcase our sportsbook to maximum effect.”
Yoni Sidi, Chief Executive Officer at Winpot, said: “We are thrilled to announce our latest collaboration with Altenar. By integrating its cutting-edge sportsbook technology with our established casino platform, we are elevating our offerings to provide an exceptional and comprehensive gaming experience for our customers. This partnership demonstrates our commitment to innovation and growth and we look forward to a mutually beneficial relationship.”
Anuar Haua, Chief Operating Officer at Winpot, added: “A successful partnership requires strategic thinking, trust and the right combination of elements. We’re excited to announce our new partnership with Altenar that will bring together the best of both worlds; the expertise of our current casino platform and the dynamic sports betting experience of Altenar. With this collaboration, we’re confident that we’ll hit the jackpot and deliver an unparalleled gaming experience to our customers.”
Altenar’s successes have been recognized with multiple award wins in the past twelve months including the MiGEAs, EGR Nordics, EGR Italy, SBC Latin America and the Baltic and Scandinavian Gaming Awards. Licensed across a total of 13 major global markets including certifications from the UKGC and MGA, Altenar has established itself as the sportsbook provider of choice for multiple leading operators.

iGaming Ontario to Request Proposals for a Centralized Self-Exclusion Solution in Early 2024
iGaming Ontario (iGO)’s vision is to lead the world’s best gaming market, which includes building a safer and more enjoyable experience for all igaming players in Ontario. To support players who decide to stop or take a break from gambling, iGO is going to issue a request for proposals (RFP) in early 2024 for a centralized self-exclusion solution that will enable a player to self-exclude from all Ontario regulated igaming operators in a single registration process.
Given the coordinated nature of the program across all regulated igaming operators, including Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG)’s igaming site, the successful bidder will be expected to develop and implement a centralized self-exclusion system that integrates with all operator systems and supports players’ self-exclusion registration, renewal, and reinstatement.
The following are iGO’s principles for centralized self-exclusion:
PLAYER FOCUSED – to provide options to players to support their commitment to take a break, to ensure processes are easy to use with minimal barriers and challenges, and to offer a seamless connection to relevant support services.
SUPPORTIVE – to deliver and execute the program in a non-stigmatized, non-judgmental manner; to be supportive and encouraging so that players feel good about registering in self-exclusion.
TRANSPARENT – to ensure expectations and consequences for players and Operators are clear and information is comprehensive and well-promoted.
SECURE – to ensure player information is securely protected and shared only with relevant employees for the purposes of administering the program.
ROBUST – to implement strong processes and procedures bolstered by secure, responsive, and highly available technology to enable an effective program that supports a player’s goals.
VIABLE – to develop systems and procedures that are manageable and practical for Operators to implement.
With these principles in mind, iGO is seeking interest from responsive and nimble companies that are able to build modern, innovative, secure cloud-based SaaS solutions that are high-profile, public-facing and critically important to building and maintaining the trust and confidence of a wide range of stakeholders. The successful bidder will partner with iGO on a multi-year program to develop best-in-class user experiences by leveraging modern, innovative technology.
Some features for an effective centralized self-exclusion solution include:
- Allowing players to create and manage their self-exclusion profile and including Know Your Client (KYC) identity verification
- Providing players with easy access to self-exclusion at any time including while they are gambling on any regulated igaming website
- Having registration, renewal, and reinstatement processes that are intuitive, simple and offer supporting information.
