Bingo Lingo VIP Levels Offer Big Benefits and Great Gifts to Titan Bingo Players

Posted by Gambling News | Bingo News | Thursday 12 August 2010 9:43 am

Titan Bingo’s VIP Program automatically rewards loyal players with increased bonuses and valuable giveaways!

Titan Bingo is pleased to announce further details of the leading online bingo site’s lucrative, bingo lingo inspired VIP Program.

While the Titan Bingo online VIP program has been in place since inception, as the site continues to grow in popularity, more players are reaching the top VIP levels to claim higher bonuses and valuable gifts.

The Titan Bingo VIP Program is comprised of three levels: LOL, XOXO and OMG. Players are automatically upgraded from level to level based on merit, i.e. once they reach a predetermined number of comp points (based on deposits made and frequency of play).

The first level, the LOL level is achieved once players earn 200 comp points. The main benefit of the LOL level is that players are rewarded with higher deposit bonuses. In addition, each month, the top players upgraded to the LOL level are selected to receive a £15 Amazon voucher (distributed twice throughout the month).

After that, the next level that players are upgraded to is the exclusive XOXO level, where their deposit bonuses are further increased. Top bingo players who reach this VIP level are also eligible to receive a gift of Thornton’s chocolates in gratitude for their loyalty.

The top loyalty level that players can reach at Titan Bingo is the OMG level which qualifies them for even bigger bonuses on their deposits as well as a series of surprise gifts.

As with most loyalty programs, the premise of the Titan Bingo VIP Program is that loyalty pays. Not only are long-term members enjoying the best online bingo games, but they are also being rewarded with real cash and gifts to keep them satisfied and engaged along the way.

eCOGRA Reports More Accredited Sites But Less Disputes

Posted by Gambling News | Gambling Industry News,Gambling News | Wednesday 11 August 2010 9:24 pm

Fair Gaming Advocate’s latest report shows that disputes per accredited operator remain impressively low.

The independent player protection and standards body eCOGRA has released its latest report on remote gambling disputes handled by the organisation’s Fair Gaming Advocate, showing remarkably low levels of player disputes at online gambling sites (Dispute Statistics) bearing the eCOGRA Safe and Fair seal of accreditation.

Online gambling sites bearing the seal are the subject to constant monitoring and annual inspections and reviews by the London-based non-profit organisation, now in its seventh year of operations. One of the requirements for accreditation is an operator’s commitment to work with eCOGRA in the event of player disputes.

Fair Gaming Advocate Tex Rees reports that over the first half of 2010 there were a total of 376 complaints submitted to eCOGRA, 33 of which were at non-accredited operations over which eCOGRA has no influence, and therefore cannot mediate. A further 56 of the complaints were declared invalid due to insufficient detail, irrelevance, abuse or anonymous origin.

The remaining 287 disputes – 76 percent of the total received – were resolved by the Fair Gaming Advocate normally within 48 hours, with 47 percent settled in favour of the player.

“These numbers are similar, and in fact compare favourably with last year’s numbers, despite the fact that eCOGRA now has 11 more accredited venues than last year,” Rees reports. “We have actually seen a decrease in dispute mediation requests.

“We can attribute a portion of this drop in disputes to the fact that we have now been working with many of the Seal operations for several years and as a consequence a number of policies and procedures have been developed that translate to less cause for disputes. Our operators are also better equipped and motivated to deal with disputes at the operator level, which results in eCOGRA receiving fewer complaints.”

Rees detailed Cash-in (43 percent), Bonus issues (21 percent) and Locked Accounts (21 percent) as the principal causes for dispute, with the number of cash-in complaints easing from last year’s 51 percent.

“We dealt with an average of 11.03 disputes a week in the first half of 2010,” Rees revealed, adding that this represented an average dispute rate per Seal operation per month of 0.34 disputes – slightly lower than last year’s 0.37 disputes.

“This level of performance is satisfactory and well within the standards we have set for our operators,” she commented. “Viewed against the very high number of transactions these well established, tier one online gambling venues experience on a daily basis, the number of disputes continues to be remarkably low.”

Coral Launches Pioneering Sports Betting Software

Posted by Gambling News | Gambling Industry News,Sports Betting News | Tuesday 3 August 2010 7:52 pm

Coral, the sports betting brand of Gala Coral Group, has joined forces with online betting and gaming software specialist, Geneity, as part of a multi-million pound investment to further enhance customer experience across its retail, online and telebetting channels.

Geneity’s cutting-edge ‘GenBet’ sportsbetting platform has successfully been integrated into Coral’s existing account management system allowing its customers the possibility to use a single account, across online, mobile, retail and telebet channels. GenBet’s ‘single point of data receipt’ allows Coral to offer consistent betting opportunities across all channels so customers can use whichever channel they prefer for each sport or event, making their Coral experience a seamless and enjoyable one.

Geneity’s software also powers Coral’s recently relaunched website, which now features enhanced Live Betting functionality allowing the bookmaker to manage live events more efficiently while offering customers both a richer experience and more in-play betting options. Unique personalisation of preferred markets is an additional key feature.

Damian Cope, Chief Information Officer of Gala Coral Group, said: "Our objective was to replace our previous system with a solution that provided our customers with a first class, multi-channel, sports betting product. We also needed to ensure that the new product provided the necessary flexibility to allow Gala Coral’s expert internal odds compilers and trading team to rapidly react to events and create new betting opportunities across our 1,600 betting shops, via telebetting and online/mobile. Working closely with the hugely experienced team from Geneity we succeeded in creating a solution that was right for both our customers and our employees alike."

He added: "We have already received significant positive feedback from our customers regarding the specific enhancements that are now being offered on Coral.co.uk thanks to the new GenBet Platform. We’re looking forward to working closer with Geneity in the future on further enhancing the betting experience of our customers."

Will Slater, Managing Director of Geneity said: "We’re proud Coral chose GenBet as the basis for their next generation multi-channel betting platform. The success of the project was made possible by close collaboration and making use of the significant expertise residing in both companies, we look forward to the continued growth of this relationship and the ongoing development of the GenBet platform"
