Ohad Narkis: Taking a ‘no nonsense’ approach to PlayOJO launch

first_imgShare Submit Share StumbleUpon Ohad Narkis, PlayOJOCan an operator’s ability to remain as open and transparent as possible become a unique identifier within the online casino industry?Ohad Narkis, Co-Founder of Maple Marketing, has bet big on ‘player responsibility’ with the launch of new online casino PlayOJO. Will his gamble pay off?Launching a new online gambling property will always test the hardest of stomachs, as leadership is faced with a gruelling terrain in which to conduct business, especially with raising costs, greater competition and increasingly stringent regulatory policies.Adding further worry, operators have seen compliance failures make national media headlines in 2017. For example, 888, one of Britain’s biggest online gambling firms, was ordered to pay a record penalty package of over £7.8m for what the Gambling Commission described as ‘serious failings’ in its handling of vulnerable customers.Nevertheless, Narkis believes that social responsibility can be used as a commercial driver for online casino PlayOJO, launched in March 2017. He is straight to the point about PlayOJO’s take on the UK market, stating that his firm will take a ‘no nonsense approach to its brand, voice, and proposition’.“We were made for the player, and believe in being as open and transparent with them as possible,” said Narkis. “That means no shifty small-print, no lengthy T&Cs, and no ridiculous wagering requirements attached to bonuses and prizes. We just offer real money and real play. It’s as simple as that.”Narkis admitted that 2017 has been a consequential year for social responsibility, and one in which high profile incidents have tainted the online casino industry’s reputation.“Online casino should be all about maximising the fun factor, but players also want to know that the money they win or are awarded in bonuses and prizes is their money,” he said. “However, because this is often not the case, the online casino industry has a bad reputation when it comes to fair play.“This has not been helped by the Commission’s decision to slap 888 with a £7.8m fine for dropping the ball when it comes to responsible gambling measures. It is another reason why we have taken the approach we have; we want our players to be healthy and happy.”Not satisfied with marketing and messaging transparency, Narkis and Maple Marketing have invested deep resources into developing the most ‘fair play’ online casino destination.He explained: “Our system, OJOplus, pays players money back on every bet, win or lose. And when we say money, we mean money, paid immediately, directly into their accounts, with no restrictions.“Of course, this is not a ground-breaking idea. We are simply replicating what happens in land-based casinos; players simply take their chips or winnings receipt to the cage and collect their cash. They are not required to wager it 20x before leaving the casino.”Looking forward to new challenges faced by PlayOJO, Narkis states that a key corporate goal will be to win the ‘trust lost’ between gambling consumers and bigger online casinos.“Players are not naïve, and are becoming increasingly frustrated with online casino sites that do not put them first,” he concluded. “They want greater control over their play, the limits they want to impose on it – as well as the marketing collateral they receive – and the bonuses and prizes they are awarded. Operators need to take this on board and make changes.”With Narkis’ no nonsense approach, PlayOJO may well be the brand to follow in 2018.last_img read more

Revealed: Four Ghanaian players falsify passports to get into Black Meteors

first_imgFour Ghana Under-23 male team players falsified their passports to get into the team, a management committee member Nana Oduro Sarfo has sensationally revealed.The four players travelled with the team to Mozambique for the first leg tie of the qualifiers for the 2015 All Africa Games last weekend.Luckily, officials of the Olympic team detected the anomaly in their passports early and stopped them from featuring in the game to avoid any potential embarrassment.The four players, whose identies GHANAsoccernet is withholding, have more than one passport with different birthdays.The Black Meteors lost 1-0 against their host and an outspoken member of the management team Oduro Sarfo has revealed the players falsified their passports to be in the team.“ We have a situation where about four of the players changed their names and ages to get into the Black Meteors for the trip to Maputo. One player called Goza changed his name to Kudjo Mensah and also changed his name to get into the team,” he told  Happy FM “I realized this development immediately the first squad was called so I reported my observation to the chairman of the U-23 team and he has begun investigations into this development so as to deal with it.Oduro Sarfo is unhappy with the selection criteria for the team during their recent international friendly against Egypt insisting the call-up of Hearts goalkeeper Mutawakilu Seidu was suspect.“I just couldn’t imagine how a goalkeeper like Eric Ofori Antwi who has graduated from the under-20 team, would be left out and Mutawakilu Seidu would rather be called.”The fabrication of players’ ages continues to be a problem for football in Africa and South America especially.Suspicions about true ages of some Ghanaian footballers date back many years with Ghana being banned at the Under-17 level the recent example. Ghana have a rich tradition of seemingly promising youngsters who mysteriously fail to fulfill their potential due to age-cheating an and falsified documents.The growing phenomenon of age-cheating forced world governing body, FIFA, to introduce the Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) which subjects young players to determine their true ages.last_img read more
