SoftSwiss Rolls Out Tournaments and Comp Points
Having recently signed a couple of new game developers, like Habanero and GameArt, and restyled their office, SoftSwiss is happy to announce an upgrade their casino platform. This includes new features and tools like tournaments and comp points, designed to increase player engagement and make operators’ life easier. Here’s a quick rundown of the changes. Feel free to leave your thoughts on this in the comments below.
Just like Yggdrasil Gaming and their unique BOOST™ platform that launched earlier this year, this Curaçao headquartered and Belarus based company is seeking for ways to make players’ stay at their operator sites more wholesome. One way to do that is with the time-sensitive tourneys.
Unlike regular tourneys, SoftSwiss ones can have various participation criteria and different ways of selecting and awarding the winners. The casinos can opt for automatic, confirmation based or buy-in tourneys and determine the winners by one of the three criteria. That includes the most bets staked, the number of bets made, or the highest score, calculated by taking into account the total win and bet amounts.
The number of winners along with the rest of the configurations depend on the operator’s preference as well. The awards can range from real to bonus money, and be either fixed or progressive. They can also be in the form of physical prizes and Comp Points.
Speaking of Comp Points, this is another improvement that they’ve added into the mix. Also known as Frequent Player Points, they are earned for real money or bonus bets, and can be exchanged for real money, bonuses or free spins at a certain rate. These they call the redeemable points.
The second type of SoftSwiss Comp Points is called status points, which accumulate and stay on players’ accounts forever. This allows casinos better target more loyal players and VIPs, by rewarding according to their contribution.
That in mind, whether the above-mentioned changes apply across the entire games portfolio or only proprietary titles is unknown. Because as of now, they have close to a thousand games, from studios like Quickfire (Microgaming), NetEnt, Endorphina, iSoftBet, Ezugi, Betsoft Gaming, and Amatic, to name a few.
Some of the casinos that are likely to apply the changes first are the Bitcoin-friendly bitStarz, BetChain, 7Bit Casino and Play Vivid. Players who take part in the earlier tourneys are likely to have higher chances of winning, so keep an eye on the casino updates and explore them beforehand if you don’t have an account just yet.
