BetConstruct Will Live Stream Games To Support Land-Based Casinos


Casino game provider BetConstruct has announced that it will support brick-and-mortar casinos by live streaming their games.

The recent Covid-19 pandemic has forced the shutdown of dozens of brick-and-mortar casinos around the world due to safety concerns. The closures have led to severe revenue drops but popular casino provider BetConstruct has decided to step up and help land-based casinos.

BetConstruct has revealed that it will help brick-and-mortar casinos by helping venues utilise their physical resources by extending them to the digital medium. The firm believes this will help answer some of the problems land-based venues are facing and help keep revenue up.

A statement from BetConstruct reads: “With no need for physical expansion, online setup brings an unlimited number of players to an online casino. This is a highly profitable solution which allows to raise player convergence via targeting new online audiences and converting the existing casino visitors into online players.

“Live Casino is probably the most unique online entertainment. While being far away from any casino location, by simply logging in to a gaming account a player still gets the true flare of Vegas and Macau and enjoys the game elevated by the live communication with a dealer.”

A Helping Hand

According to BetConstruct, they will help land-based casinos across three main aspects; technical support, programming, and dealer training. The firm is confident that it can provide all of the necessary software and hardware to take these land-based games online.

The statement from BetConstruct ended with: “Since the solution takes into account all peculiarities of an existing land-based venue, we suggest contacting our business executives who can inspect your case and provide personalised propositions to help you benefit to the maximum in the current situation.”

Brick-and-mortar casinos aren’t the gambling services to have been affected by the coronavirus pandemic. We reported earlier this week that the Greyhound Board of Great Britain (GBGB) made the decision to move all greyhound races to behind closed doors to prevent the spread of Covid-19.

The rule was implemented with immediate effect and affected all stadiums except Scotland’s Shawfield Greyhound Stadium as Scottish Parliament received differing advice than that of the UK government. In addition, all open racing has been suspended across the nation to reduce the need for travelling across the country.

Also this week, the British Horseracing Association (BHA) announced that it too will be moving all of its events to behind closed doors. Later on, the BHA then cancelled all future meetings through to the end of April in a bid to slow down the virus across the United Kingdom.
