Digital marketing agency MediaTroopers has secured a temporary license from the Maine Gambling Control Unit to operate as an affiliate in the state. This marks a significant milestone for the company, enabling it to promote its licensed sportsbook partners in Maine.

Maine’s Sports betting legislation came into effect on July 31, 2022. It allows in-person betting at casinos and off-track betting facilities, as well as online wagering through platforms that are licensed by the state, including Caesars Sportsbook and DraftKings. The law also permits state tribes to offer statewide mobile sports betting and establish retail sportsbooks at gaming facilities.

Media Troopers is a leading provider of marketing and acquisition services to online betting and igaming operators in North America. With the addition of Maine, the company is now licensed in 14 states and active in 25 states, plus Ontario, Washington D.C., and Puerto Rico.

The addition of this license will allow Media Troopers to add Maine to its respectable list of states the company now operates in, including Michigan, Iowa, Indiana, Connecticut, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. Obtaining the license in Maine coincides with Media Troopers’ North American coverage strategy, where the company invests considerable resources and efforts into establishing a presence for its clients in every state where sports betting and igaming are legal.

As Shmulik Segal, Co-Founder and CEO of MediaTroopers, said upon receiving the license: “Being on the ground in Maine is another huge milestone. But for us, the work has just begun. As in every new state we enter, it’s all about creating the right conditions to allow our clients to hit the ground running.”

Segal also expressed optimism about prospects in Maine. “Receiving the Maine affiliate license is a testament to our team’s hard work and our commitment to obtaining all the relevant licenses – even when the licensing process is a big initial investment of time and resources. We believe in maintaining compliance and excellence in the igaming industry,” Segal remarked.

“Maine’s welcoming approach to sports betting provides an exciting opportunity for us to leverage our expertise and contribute to the growth of a responsible and dynamic market.” He added, “Our goal is to ensure Maine residents have access to the best and most responsible online gambling experiences, and we are eager to work with our partners to make this a reality.”

According to the American Gaming Association, it is estimated that about one in five adults plan to bet on the Super Bowl this year, bringing the total to nearly 68 million adults placing an estimated $23.1 billion in wagers (up from last year’s $16 billion). With the Super Bowl happening this weekend, this license will open up new opportunities for Media Troopers to reach a wider audience and capitalize on the excitement surrounding the event.

Hellenic Gaming Association Intensifies its Efforts to Combat Illegal Online Gambling

The Hellenic Gaming Association (HGA) has intensified its efforts against the phenomenon of illegal online gambling, which has reached enormous proportions in recent years with incalculable economic and social impacts.

Following a lawsuit recently filed by the organisation under President Christos Panagopoulos against an internationally active company conducting illegal gambling in Greece without the necessary licensing from the Hellenic Gaming Commission (HGC), a new lawsuit targets two well-known Greek influencers. These influencers, through their social media content, promote unlicensed gambling websites.

These internet personalities have posted a series of videos encouraging their mostly young audience, including minors, to visit these sites by sharing how they “managed” to win tens of thousands of euros by betting and playing on these illegal platforms. However, they conceal the fact that these are illegal gambling companies while enticing viewers with the promise of easy money.

It is important to highlight that their audience includes minors, who find an open door in the unlicensed environment where there are no controls or restrictions, unlike legal online companies where one must be at least 21 years old to open an account and play.

Besides the two Greek influencers, the association is planning to file reports to social media platforms and online services hosting ads and promoting unlicensed providers. Initially, they will approach the relevant departments of these organisations, and they may even take the matter to prosecutorial authorities. The initiatives undertaken by the HGA to combat illegal gambling often aim to fill the void left by the State, which is fundamentally responsible for addressing this open wound with appropriate actions, rather than a private entity.

The massive scale of illegal gambling in Greece was confirmed by a recent official survey conducted by the HGC in collaboration with KAPPA Research, shedding light on the hidden side of this illicit activity. According to the survey, 900,000 Greeks, or nearly 1 in 10, participated in illegal gambling at least once in the past 12 months, with an estimated astronomical expenditure of 1.7 billion euros in the unlicensed environment.

Of the total 1.7 billion euros, 1.1 billion was spent on illegal online games, and the remaining 600 million euros were associated with money spent in physical networks, such as unlicensed clubs and casinos. The average annual amount spent per player online reached approximately 1200 euros, while for land-based gambling, the corresponding amount was 738 euros.
