Now in its 9th year at EiG, the Start-up LaunchPad is a firm hit at the event and is watched closely by senior professionals in the industry due to the high quality talent it attracts. This year was no different. Out of the 5 start-ups who pitched to the selection committee, it was CEO and Co-founder Martin Cagalinec's company, 1SpinMillionaire, that came away with the coveted first prize.

1SpinMillionaire is the brand new innovation that will bring life-changing opportunity in the online betting and gambling industry, Cagalinec explains “There are several different kinds of jackpots in the gaming industry, but there is no jackpot connecting all the gaming content providers. That is what 1SpinMillionaire does."

Cagalinec and his business partners came up with the idea a year ago when they wanted to build a new online casino using modern techniques, incorporated into a fresh and dynamic look. However, they knew they needed to offer something different to break through the competition by giving everyone the chance to be a millionaire; their aim is to “jackpotify the online gaming industry.”

To help them achieve their goal, they sought help from the Online Gaming Masterclass, a 4-day online gaming training course developed by the Totally Gaming Academy and iGaming expert, Igor Samardziski.

Cagalinec explained: “I attended the Online Gaming Masterclass because even though I have been in the business for a few years, it is always good to learn new information and get another perspective to help you see your daily operations differently. The course reminded me that if we want to create something new we always have to start from the beginning.

“I have attended many courses and conferences in the past and I must confess that I was little bit skeptical. Usually at conferences, I am happy to come away having learnt one new thing and I will remain forever grateful to the Online Gaming Masterclass for teaching me much more than one new thing! I was also really surprised about how energetic and professional the course was. I sincerely recommend anyone who is serious about the online gaming business to attend!”

He added: “1SpinMillionaire is an innovative bonus system, so the most interesting part from the course for me was about the bonuses, player engagement and retention. My job is creative and you can easily think big. But even if you are thinking outside of the box you need to have the mathematics behind it to ensure it succeeds. I must say a huge thank you to the Online Gaming Masterclass for helping us achieve our goals for the product.

“The positive feedback we have received has been overwhelming. Currently we are integrating with our first big operators and we are planning to have at least 6 big operators fully connected to the 1SpinMillionaire system by ICE 2017. Our goal is to have at least 40 companies by the end of 2017.”
