TheGamblest: As a B2B company working with operators, can you tell us what are some of the most prominent challenges operators face in different regions, and how do these challenges vary across geographical areas?

For example, European operators struggle with the stringent regulatory requirements, and market saturation makes it hard to start a project which stands out from the rest. In Asia, operators often navigate complex local regulations and payment processing difficulties. In Latin America, the primary challenges include emerging market conditions and varying levels of internet infrastructure. Uplatform addresses these challenges by assessing the risks and difficulties prior to the launch and providing tailored solutions.

Providing multiple payment solutions ensures smooth transactions in regions with varying financial infrastructures. Staying compliant with local regulations is crucial, and we support our clients by offering regulatory compliance services. Additionally, leveraging data analytics helps operators understand market trends and user behavior, enabling them to make informed decisions. Comprehensive customer support and continuous innovation also play key roles in addressing and overcoming regional challenges.


TheGamblest: Can you provide examples of innovative solutions or best practices implemented to address the unique obstacles faced by operators?

Nelli: Absolutely. We’ve developed advanced localization tools to customize content for various languages and cultural contexts, enhancing user engagement. Our platform supports a wide array of payment methods, ensuring smooth transactions across different regions. We also leverage robust data analytics to help operators understand user behavior and market trends, facilitating better decision-making. Moreover, we offer extensive regulatory compliance support to navigate complex legal landscapes, ensuring operators remain compliant and avoid potential issues. These strategies collectively help address regional challenges effectively.

Our personalized consultancy and advanced analytics help partners achieve sustainable growth. Recently, we’ve collaborated with several prominent content providers such as Tom Horn and Game Art to enhance our casino portfolio with their unique games. These and other partnerships focus on shaping our technology, portfolio and tools to meet with the greater ideas and goals of our partners and to remain competitive and profitable in the market.

We are also launching innovative features in our analytics platform to provide deeper insights and improve decision-making for our partners. Furthermore, we are strengthening our global reach by entering new markets and forging strategic partnerships to ensure our clients continue to thrive in the competitive iGaming landscape.


TheGamblest: Nelli, we’d love to learn more about you personally. How did you enter the iGaming world and how did your experience started?

Nelli: I entered the industry by chance over nine years ago at the renowned company BetConstruct as a customer support agent. There, I soon advanced to an account manager position and eventually moved into the commercial department as a business development manager. My career progressed through several senior sales and business development roles in iGaming, where I expanded market reach and brought in significant revenues. This journey of continuous learning and adaptation has brought me to Uplatform, where I now leverage my extensive experience to drive success for our partners.
