Antonios Kerastaris, Intralot Group CEO, at the 6th Entrepreneurship and Career Forum in Athens

Friday, March 24th, 2017

INTRALOT Group CEO Antonios Kerastaris addressed the 6th Entrepreneurship and Career Forum in Athens in a CEO panel discussing “The Road to professional success”.

Mr. Kerastaris emphasized that in order to be internationally competitive a company needs to adapt to short product cycles, the vast expansion of sales channels in the online era, and an environment with fewer and bigger competitors with an expanding portfolio diversity. This requires human capital that is very open to adaptive change or professionals who are willing to see their careers and skill-collecting experiences built internationally.

INTRALOT specifically is looking for people who have diverse mix of competences (engineering, business, management) who can develop fast the ability to analyze the different context of each country/market.

To that end, INTRALOT is actively pursuing a strategy for the creation of a “greenhouse” type process in skills creation for young people who are motivated to join the company with a mid- to long-term horizon and gain experience while working on assignments around the globe.

One Winning Strategy

Thursday, April 7th, 2016

Dimitris Konstantakopoulos of Intralot, talks to eGR about the rapidly shifting sports betting industry

Trading is operating in such a way as to fulfil all necessary certifications and remain cost effective, while fully covering all required trading services

Sports betting business is going through a series of changes, driven by technology advancements, an increasingly competitive environment and most importantly the formation of government regulated, licensed markets. Until recently, dot.com operators swarmed the global market in an uncontrollable environment based on white label business models and quantity prioritising solutions, whose customisation was limited to offering sports content in the local language. However, successful operation in regulated jurisdictions requires a market specific product strategy which can adapt to the local legal frameworks, comply with responsible gaming and positively affect all customer segments.

This newly shaped regulatory environment has presented operators with a number of challenges, not necessarily tackled with the widely popular white label solutions. Legal related boundaries and various taxation schemes result in different targeted profit margin per jurisdiction, while various sports content and player limitations define customised offering and risk management strategies. Furthermore, multiple levels of internet penetration and sports betting maturity call for a variety of sales attraction techniques and different levels of competition – from intense to non-existent – play a key role in all aspects of the everyday betting operations. All the above have created the need for each jurisdiction to be handled separately, contrary to the industry’s common practice.

Intralot’s trading model is flexible enough to adapt to any specific environment, while operating under several different partnership schemes, including fully managed trading services and mixed models with clear responsibility frontiers. Each jurisdiction’s regulatory parameters, betting trends, competition status and all other particularities are taken into account to apply tailor made services in order to maximise profitability under the specific profit margin and ensure operational excellence. Serving customers in multiple countries, covering four continents, Intralot’s trading stays fully operational 24/7 throughout the year. Trading is operating in such a way as to fulfil all necessary certifications and remain cost effective, while fully covering all required trading services. The traffic of transactions is constantly high because of the different time zones of our jurisdictions, demanding a rotation of traders of equal experience at all times. Moreover, the variety of popular sports in each jurisdiction calls for extensive cross-sports knowledge, country specific content and risk management techniques per sport, irrespective of the local HQ time zone.
