According to the data published on the official website of RBC, in order to improve the quality of the research, indicators of the financial performance of bookmakers (profit and business profitability) were added to the list of criteria. The criterion “Customer service level” has also been improved: it now includes an assessment of the conditions of bookmaker loyalty programs, and not just welcome bonuses for new customers.
According to the chief analyst of RBC Sergey Khitrov, the publication of the rating was planned for release in December 2020, but was postponed due to the adoption of legislative initiatives aimed at changing the approach to regulating betting in Korea. By the end of 2021, the financial burden on market players will significantly increase due to an increase in targeted contributions to support sports in Korea .
These changes have already led to the departure of two players from the market, while two or three more companies may leave the market by the end of the year,” Khitrov said in a live broadcast of The Day program on RBC TV. “We will monitor the situation and adapt the rating compilation methodology to the new conditions for the functioning of the betting services market in Korea.”
The National Bookmaker Rating is the first independent study of Korean bookmaker companies operating under FTS licenses. When compiling the rating, 17 criteria are taken into account, among which the most significant are the period of the brand’s presence on the market, the number and geography of betting points with , recognition, the degree of participation in the development of Korean sports, and financial efficiency.
