Software solutions provider InBet Games has released DAREBS, a betting terminal which allows players to make bets on real-life events.
Gaming machines, while enjoying great popularity among players, have always faced severe regulations in many jurisdictions. For example, UK law restricts the number of terminals operating with a single establishment to four, as well as placing a limit on monthly revenue derived from slots.
Derived from the acronym Dynamically Animated Real Events Betting System, DAREBS stands out to owners of online and offline bookmaking operations. The real-event mechanism means that it can be operated on a bookmaking licence, making it “a fine addition to any betting shop”, while it wouldn’t cannibalize the existent infrastructure that is already in use, since no restrictions apply to it.
DAREBS takes bets on airplane positioning with data acquired from international open systems such as flight radar. Airplane coordinates, displayed on the screen in the betting shop, can be easily tracked and cross checked through a variety of services to ensure transparency for the player.
Based on a software platform called Lima, DAREBS, which can be installed on a regular computer, comes with ready-to-use cashier and administrator interfaces, alongside numerous options for customisation, from animation settings to regulation of the jackpot size.
With up to 120 animations and integrated customer account management, the terminal also serves as an effective CRM tool for operators, who can also benefit from its automated payment processes.
Pavel Korolev, Business Development Director for InBet Games, said: “We are constantly adding new features and functionality to the groundbreaking DAREBS solution. The latest improvement has seen the platform equipped with a system of customer account management.
“This tool allows players to resume the game from the last checkpoint, even if earlier they have left the gaming hall for a while. Meanwhile, the easily searchable customer account database also simplifies cash-in. For operators, it acts as a convenient CRM instrument, indispensable for maintaining a customer database and automating payment processes.
“This system holds a proprietary patent, certified by BMM and several other testing labs, and has been successfully implemented in dozens of regulated markets. Boasting enhanced player engagement, DAREBS’ profitability rate is almost the same as for B2 terminals.”
