Livespins strikes breakthrough Yolo Group partnership
By Simon Wright Jan 17, 2023
Livespins, the social livestreaming product that allows players to bet behind their favourite streamer or brand ambassador, has entered into a breakthrough deal with the Yolo Group.
The partnership will see the Yolo Group launch Livespins across its three B2C online casinos, bitcasino.io, sportsbet.io and livecasino.io, socially charging the experience offered to players.
The Livespins experience sits within the casino lobby and its team of streamers create highly entertaining and engaging streams using the hundreds of games integrated into its platform from tier-one developers such as Relax Gaming, Yggdrasil and iSoftBet.
The player experience is taken to the next level through the ability to bet behind the action taking place across the reels. All players and the streamer bet together on the same spin, meaning everyone is in the same boat, win or lose, which in turn creates a highly social, engaging way to enjoy online casino.
Players also have the option to interact with the streamer and each other throughout and can also drop reactions and emojis based on the action taking place across the reels.
Because Livespins sits within the casino lobby, it allows operators to leverage the huge demand for casino and slot streaming while ensuring players are protected by the responsible gambling and safe gaming tools and standards required under their respective licences.
Michael Pedersen, Chief Commercial Officer at Livespins, said: “Yolo Group is an operator that sits at the cutting edge of the industry and by adding Livespins to the experience offered to players at bitcasino.io, sportsbet.io and livespins.io, strengthens its position as a true pioneer.”
“Livespins has been developed to allow online casino brands to unlock the huge potential that slot streaming provides but in a way that is responsible and compliant. It’s great to see Yolo Group embrace this and provide its players with an entirely new way to experience and enjoy online casino.”
“This is the first of many operator partnerships we will be announcing this year, but what better way to kick off 2023 than by joining forces with such a power player.”
Joe McCallum, Director of Gaming at Yolo Group, added: “At Yolo Group we seek out and embrace innovation and in Livespins we have a partner that is just as committed to providing next-generation casino experiences as we are.”
“There is no denying the popularity of slot streaming, and through Livespins we can leverage this in a way that is responsible and compliant. We can’t wait to see our players find themselves on the edge of their seats as they bet with the streamer and watch in anticipation as each spin plays out.”
