Weekly Live Casino News Roundup #10
Did you miss us?
Because we’re back and ready to discuss this week’s hottest live casino news, offers and developments.
Let’s get into it.
BetConstruct Gets UK Licence
Armenian-founded live casino developer BetConstruct has been a rising force in the scene for a few years now, and forward moves like this will only serve to cement that reputation.
It adds to an already big 2019 for the developer, who also upgraded their Maltese licence to include Poker Games and acquired an Italian licence.
“Adding the live casino vertical to our existing UK remote operating license allows us to deliver outstanding content, not only for our white-label partners, but also provide turnkey solutions” said BetConstruct’s head of licencing Karine Kocharyan.
Interested players can try out BetConstruct’s live casino games at VBet.

Unibet £75,000 Live Casino Tournament
In the second half of March, Unibet continues to amaze with their monthly collections of live-casino -oriented bonuses and offers.
This particular event gives the top 400 players with the highest cash turnover during the tournament period a share in a cash prize of £75,000. Wins made on any of Unibet’s live casino tables from Evolution are eligible for this competition.
The number one player will receive a cool £15,000 and the runner-up gets £10,000. The next four players get £5000 and then £1000. Prizes decrease over every five places or so on the leaderboard, down to a minimum of £100.
The lowest qualifying bets are £0.01 made in real cash, excluding bonus money.
Ireland to Get New Gambling Regulator
The Government of the Republic of Ireland has this week announced their intention to establish a unilateral gambling regulator.
The role that this office would fulfil is currently split between several different agencies, so combining them all into one place would ensure comprehensive coverage and enforcement.
“An independent regulator and gambling control bill, will ensure enforcement and compliance by all gambling operators, not just betting shops, which will lead to better consumer protections and support for those who may be vulnerable to addiction” said Sharon Byrne of the Irish Bookmaker’s Association.
Casino Gaming Outstrips Sports Growth for Paddy Power Betfair
Paddy Power Betfair recently released their 2018 earnings reports and also mooted the idea of a name change.
The company reported a revenue increase of 9% to 1.87 billion. Although, that did not coincide with increased profits – as the newly-merged company looks to invest further into the future of new markets such as the USA.
Their planned name change, to Flutter Entertainment, may come through in the next few weeks as it is currently pending shareholder approval.
The change should see no visible difference to casino players at their respective sites but would instead ‘reflect the increased diversity of our brands and operations’ said Chief Executive Peter Jackson.
Daily £500 Cash Draw on Grosvenor’s Live Casino App
As if you needed another reason to check out Grosvenor Casino’s excellent Android and iOS application, they’ve added extra incentives this March in the form of a cash bonus.
Every player who opts in and then deposits £20 using the Grosvenor app during the promotional period (1st to the 31st of March 2019) will be entered into a daily cash draw. 50 players each day will then win a £10 cash prize. Only one prize win possible for each player during the whole promotion.
Not the greatest promotion of all time, but cash prizes are still cash prizes. Grosvenor’s app also gets a good rating from us, so consider it well worth checking out anyway.
