Launched in 2019 to give a voice to the industry on a range of key issues, the CasinoBeats 100 Club tackles the tricky questions and shares members’ views across the CasinoBeats network.

Relaunching after a COVID-19 hiatus, the 100 Club is looking for new members. To apply to join this exclusive group of gaming industry professionals, register your interest here

Featuring an unpublished list of 100 influencers from across the sector – comprising key executives from operators and suppliers, gaming platforms, marketing agencies, legal and other professionals – the 100 Club takes part in regular single-question surveys intended to gauge the view or mood across the industry on a specific news story, trend or hot topic.

Members of the 100 Club can select their preferred answer anonymously but those wishing to contribute further can also submit additional comments for publication.

Membership is dominated by operators (38 per cent) and suppliers (34 per cent), with a broad selection of contributors also taken from the media and marketing field, as well as regulators, affiliates and others, such as the legal profession.

Some of the world’s biggest online gaming operators are part of the 100, including BGO, Betsson, Casumo, GVC, Lottoland, Mr Green, Royal Panda, Twin and Wishmaker, to name a few.

Suppliers are also extremely well represented, with leading companies like Authentic Gaming, Big Time Gaming, Comtrade Gaming, EveryMatrix, iSoftBet, Nektan, Red Tiger, SBTech and Yggdrasil all on board. See a detailed breakdown of members here.

CasinoBeats managing director Stewart Darkin said: “When we launched the 100 Club last year, the response was fantastic.

“As the sector faces the once-in-a-generation challenge of a global pandemic, tracking and publishing the views of those in the sector is more important than ever. Indeed, the legacy of the COVID-19 crisis for betting and gaming operators is the topic of our next survey.

“Ahead of that, we wanted to open membership to a new cohort of contributors.”

The 100 Club will be asked: Has COVID-19 and the temporary loss of sports betting revenue caused betting and gaming operators to permanently change their online casino strategy? Have your say by joining the 100 Club
