During the pandemic, PAGCOR, the iGaming regulatory body in the Philippines, was actively to increase revenue with the promotion of eCockfighting.
Commonly known as “eSabong,” in the Philippines, eSabong was a hit and local iGaming got a big boost from Filipinos betting on Sabong from the comfort of their homes.
Philippines iGaming industry leader Jade Gaming secured an eSabong license and they embarked on a mission to create their eSabong product. But it was not without challenges, especially when it came internet connectivity.
Unreliable internet connectivity
Jade Gaming’s foray into the eSabong market was met with numerous obstacles. The company had to contend with the Philippines’ unreliable internet connectivity, which impacted the performance of their iGaming products. They also faced difficulties in ensuring the quality of their eSabong video streaming, as the live games took place in remote locations and needed to be streamed across the Philippines. Concerns about the required bandwidth and latency for proper streaming, and security issues with their eSabong games stream being intercepted and illegally reproduced, added to the complexity of the situation.
Evaluating across markets
Understanding the need for specialized assistance, Jade Gaming sought the expertise of Testa, a leading provider of crowdtesting services specifically for iGaming. Testa’s proficiency in evaluating video performance across multiple markets was precisely what Jade Gaming needed to overcome their challenges and achieve their enhancement objectives.
Testa deployed real testers from four cities across the Philippines to play games, record video and audio, and identify bugs. This strategy allowed them to evaluate the performance of Jade Gaming’s software under real-world conditions, providing valuable insights that Jade Gaming could use to refine their product.
Superior viewing experience for players
The data collected by Testa was pivotal in aiding Jade Gaming to enhance video performance. It offered a clear understanding of the software’s performance and the areas that needed improvement. This data-driven approach led to significant enhancements in Jade Gaming’s product, resulting in a superior gaming experience for players.
Furthermore, Testa’s services helped validate and provide evidence for key integrations and partnerships. This was crucial in fostering trust with partners and stakeholders, and in ensuring the smooth operation of Jade Gaming’s software across various platforms.
The collaboration between Jade Gaming and Testa was deemed very successful. Some of the outcomes achieved were:
- Significant improvements in Jade Gaming’s eSabong games.
- Enhanced gaming experience for players.
- Reduced latency in the games.
