5 Tips on How to land a job in iGaming without experience

If you are fresh out of school or a professional in a different industry, you might want to continue reading this article where we will give you some tips on how to land a job in iGaming without previous experience.

#1 Tip: Getting the chance for an interview

Most of the time the HR department will receive tons of CV's for the same position. It will be time consuming for them to read from top to button every single CV. Use a short phrase at the beginning of your CV where you will describe why you are the best for the job. Make your CV stand out. 

# 2 Tip: Experience and knowledge are two different things

If an employer is looking for a role to fill in his company where no experience is required, that doesn't mean you don't need to know anything about the role.

Lets say you are applying for a position within the Fraud and Payments department. You need to know the definition of fraud, ways to prevent, types of fraud, what is payments, type of online payments etc. 

You might also get a test to spot fake documents, cards etc. Knowledge about this field is essential.

#3 Tip: Know the Company

Preparation for the interview involves knowing the Company you are applying to. All information about the Company you will find it on their website. 

E.g. When the company was founded, where it is licensed, languages offered, products they offer, Terms and Conditions etc.

#4 Tip: Read the job description

Very important. You must carefully read what your responsibilities will be. During the interview use your answer around the experience/knowledge you previously gained that involves your future duties.

#5 Tip: Dress Code

iGaming industry workplace provides most of the time a very relaxed and creative environment. But, that doesn't mean jeans are allowed during an interview. Casual - smart is always the way to go.

To get a job in iGaming, you must be willing to relocate to different countries where companies are licensed and have their offices. Malta, Cyprus, Gibraltar, Curacao are some iGaming hubs. 

Tips:To find a job, you can use iGaming recruitment agencies, go directly to the website of the company or via Facebook groups.

Currently there have been many openings for different language Customer Support roles, such as: Swedish, Danish, Finnish, Norwegian, Dutch and German in Malta. So, if you speak the above languages then you are in luck and much easier to enter in this field.

Good Luck!

Betfair joins William Hill, others out of Poland market

Betfair has become the latest big name in the iGaming world to announce its decision to exit the Polish market.

The company’s move comes after the country brought in new national gambling laws, which are set to kick in soon.

Updated regulations will say that iGaming operators not willing to apply for a new license, which involves a 12% tax on wagering turnover, must stop operations in Poland by April 1.

Last week, William Hill confirmed it would pull out of Poland, while the likes of Bet365, EnergyBet and Pinnacle have also announced their exit ahead of the deadline.

William Hill shot a letter to all stakeholders in Poland, informing them that it intends to stop offering its products in Poland prior to April 1.

Customers can withdraw their funds from the site until April 1. Post this date, they will have to contact customer support to do the same.

Apart from this, William Hill has informed all affiliates to take off any marketing material directed at Polish customers from their websites.

Despite withdrawing from the market, William Hill intends to return to the market in the future.

Totalizator Sportowy is to remain a monopoly in the country, with complete control over its online gaming market.

International Federation of Poker flops in SportAccord bid

The International Federation of Poker (IFP) global governing body failed to become a member of SportAccord, the umbrella organization for Olympic and non-Olympic governing bodies.

The organization had made an application before the 2017 edition of the SportAccord Convention that will be held from April 2-7 in Aarhus, Denmark.

During the General Assembly at the April event, SportAccord members will vote to decide on entry for other federations into the organization.

The IFP administers sports poker and endorses poker and its Match Poker variation as a skill game and a mind sport.

However, in a statement put out by Insidethegames.com, IFP president Patrick Nally made it clear that SportAccord has not accept the organization’s application at the upcoming convention.

Naturally it was disappointing to receive such news, both for me and - more importantly - for players and officials representing our 60 National Federations around the world who have collectively worked very hard, over a number of years, in our quest for SportAccord membership,” Nally said.

“We have always believed that acceptance by SportAccord into the global sports family would assist us in promoting match poker, the team-based, non-gambling variant of the world's most popular card game, worldwide.

“It is important to state how grateful IFP is for the support we have received from SportAccord president Patrick Baumann, the SportAccord Membership Commission and the SportAccord Council to date, and for their promise of continued support as we look to enhance our application.

“I look forward to attending the meeting for SportAccord applicants due to be held in Lausanne later this year and to our application being considered by the membership at a future General Assembly.”

The World Armwrestling Federation and Rugby League International Federation are also believed to have had membership applications turned down.
