Today we’ve sat down with Huawei’s VP of Consumer Mobile Services, Europe, Dr. Jaime Gonzalo to talk about HDC.Europe and many more things that shape up the app ecosystem.
EG: Huawei recently hosted HDC.Europe at WebSummit in Lisbon. What were some of the key announcements at the event?
JG: There were a number of topics that we announced at HDC.Europe during WebSummit 2022, with a special focus on growth and business expansion – not only for ourselves but also for our Partners who work with us.
Our vision for some time has been to create an integrated Ecosystem, and over the last 2 years, we have seen our own business grow exponentially, including our App distribution platform AppGallery, which now has more than 580 million monthly active users globally, over 45million of which are in Europe. Also in the last 2 years, our global developer community has grown to over 6 million developers, an increase of 233%, and has resulted in more than 220,000 apps being integrated with our HMS Core open capabilities.
In that time, Huawei Mobile Services has also invested in competitive and innovative services, alongside our partners, to ensure a safe, seamless, and smart experience. This includes our Cloud and Browser services, Petal Search, Petal Maps, and more.
To support our partners’ growth potential, we’ve also invested heavily in comprehensive Business Monetisation platforms, including Huawei Ads, which now connects more than 2,000 Advertisers with more than 360,000 Publishers, and enables our Programmatic advertising platform to provide growth opportunities for all apps and game developers and website owners that want to scale up their businesses.
 
EG: What are some gaming app trends that you’re seeing on AppGallery?
JG: We see strong growth of games in AppGallery in terms of both revenues and installs dimensions. In fact, YoY performance has nearly doubled each year since 2020.
Thanks to the close cooperation with top developers and their resulting growth on AppGallery, more and more developers are considering AppGallery as one of their main user acquisition channels instead of other more traditional marketing channels. We are keeping up the pace and hundreds of new quality games are launching on AppGallery each quarter from within Europe alone.
We are also exploring hot topics like Web3, and NFT-based content with pinioning developers. However, the end goal is to build a ‘value added’ end-user experience-oriented mobile gaming ecosystem together with our game developer partners.
 
EG: What’s next for AppGallery and the HMS ecosystem in 2023?
JG: We’re very proud of how far we’ve come with AppGallery, but we know there is more work to be done.
As we look to the future there are new devices and health trends that really excite us. Commitment to innovation will always be in Huawei’s DNA, and we continually invest heavily in R&D – actually, in 2021 we were ranked second globally for R&D investment and held the number one position for patent applications in Europe.
We’ve seen strong growth in innovative form factors such as foldable phones and wearable devices, and we believe they will be a big part of the tech industry’s future. Our position here will be strengthened considerably with our integrated ecosystem approach of hardware, software, and cloud to innovate not only on hardware but also on new scenarios for the user experience.
One of a number of core areas will be HUAWEI Health. Here we will continue to expand on allowing developers to use the open capabilities to obtain health & fitness data of Huawei wearable devices and devices of Huawei ecosystem partners, allowing for innovative new products, such as the Blood pressure monitoring HUAWEI Watch D to be developed.
 
EG: In your opinion, why does bringing games to alternative app marketplaces, like AppGallery, pay off?
JG: There are multiple benefits of bringing mobile games to alternative app stores, including how partners can achieve an improved return on their considerable investment in new and existing games, come out on top in the ongoing user acquisition war, and lower the cost of retaining their hard-won customers.
Game developers are finding it increasingly difficult to reach new audiences. The major challenge is that customer acquisition cost has increased significantly over the years due to market saturation and inflated pricing. That’s why alternative app platforms such as AppGallery are emerging and playing their part to provide developers with improved revenue-generating opportunities.
Currently, 99.9% of apps downloaded via the leading app distribution platforms are losing users monthly, pushing the costs of retention higher and higher, whilst AppGallery has increased in-app revenue by 300% year-on-year. Casual game growth has also increased by over 20 times over the same period, and monthly ad revenue for developers has doubled.
Because of this, on AppGallery, gaming has become the fastest-growing and one of the most successful categories, reaching millions of monthly active users with new and existing gaming apps. The app platform now lists games from some of the world’s leading games companies, including play favorites PUBG Mobile, Mobile Legends, Garena Free Fire, State of Survival, and Lords Mobile, to name just a few.

Superlotto has become renowned as one of the fastest-rising stars in the industry, with an extensive portfolio of more than 80 online games and partners that includes the Lithuanian Lottery, Latvian Lottery, Georgian Lottery, Betsson Group, Parimatch, Slotegrator, and BtoBet.
With some seriously exciting plans in store for the World Cup, we sat down with Superlotto CCO, Milda Mikelioniene to talk through their latest deal with GOAT Interactive in Africa, as well the meteoric growth in popularity of Superlotto’s Instant Games. Read on to find out more!
 
Congratulations on Superlotto’s latest deal in Africa with GOAT Interactive! Your studio has been making a real impact this year – what’s been behind your success?
Thank you! We’re delighted to be bringing our top-performing products to even more players, especially given GOAT Interactive’s leading position on the African continent.
To start things off though, we don’t see it as a success, but rather the result of our team’s hard work. For us, it’s all about striving to be the best and we have been paying a lot of attention to fine-tuning and further developing our outstanding gaming portfolio. We’ve got some super exciting things in store for our partners including working with a renowned film studio to make our lottery, Instant Games and slots even more engaging, as well as top-notch animation and some really standout bonuses.
In short then, I’d put our hard work (and success!) down to our excellent diversity of gameplay, serious quality and highly attractive nature of our titles, which are proving a real hit with players. Make sure to get in touch with us at SiGMA!
 
Lottery and Instant Games are both very hot right now – what’s been Superlotto’s experience with player pick-up this year?
From our experience this year, we’re seeing a really strong demand for premium sportsbooks looking to get more involved in offering Instant Games, and I’m beginning to understand why. First up, Instant Games are really bridging the gap between traditional / physical lotteries and online casino slots. This means that we’re able to appeal to multiple player demographics across what is, in effect, three different verticals.
Also, there’s no doubt that having easy-to-play games (i.e. Instant Games) allows operators to offer a seriously diverse spectrum of content to their audience, and as a result, attract a wealth of new players looking to give this fast-growing part of casino a try.
 
What do you see as the driving force between both verticals’ new founded popularity?
As we’ve touched on – it’s all about diversity of content, easy-to-understand games that can attract multiple different audiences, and most importantly (and especially in the case of Africa), something that can offer a synergy between lottery, sports and slots. As we’re seeing, Instant Games do that and more!
Of course, to drive that popularity (and indeed availability), there’s a lot of factors at play. A diversity of content is heavily dependent on local regulation and jurisdictional variance. Competition is key too, especially if you have one main studio that has a particularly strong hold on a certain market. So, to summarise – it’s all about offering an engaging and exciting catalogue that can engage and entertain – as well as offering elements that can attract multiple different types of audiences!
 
Looking to your multiple certifications and WLA membership – how do you see lottery developing in the next few years, as a stakeholder in the industry?
We’ve very proud to be a member of the WLA – as well as our extensive list of regulatory certifications from some of the industry’s leading bodies.
As someone who’s been part of the industry for quite a few years, I’ve had the privilege of watching lottery grow across global markets, and we’ve got some super exciting plans that we’ll be announcing for the Americas soon enough.
So how will it develop? Well, you certainly don’t need to reinvent the wheel! Lottery’s a winning fixture because of the social element that comes with it, as well as a true feeling from the player that they’re participating in a proposition that is probably fair. What I mean here, is that offering lottery to audiences with a real element of trust means that you need to have a solid format that can demonstrably show that it truly is a game of chance.
So, that means keeping with the key tenets of lottery that have contributed to its success over the past 10 years. Of course, the visual format may change, with even more exciting studios, attractive designs and added factors that can engage and excite but given we’re talking about one of the world’s most famous, and indeed, popular gambling products – I believe that staying true to what made it great in the first place is key.
 
Last but not least, with the World Cup fast approaching – you’ve got plenty of excitement building with your football-themed games – what has Superlotto got in store?
Despite our beloved home of Lithuania not being in the competition, we have been ready for the World Cup for a long time!
We’ve got some really exciting football games in store for our partners to make sure they boost engagement and incremental revenue throughout the tournament. Not only that, but they’re also fully customisable, which means that each of our operator partners can get our own proprietary football games completely branded in the way that they choose.
As we’ve already mentioned, we definitely see Instant Games being the perfect complimentary product to sportsbook throughout the tournament. For us, it’s all about offering gameplay with super exciting parallels with current events. So, take a football game – boost it during the World Cup and tailor it to the same entertainment fans are getting on-screen, and I can promise that you’ll be onto a winner with us at Superlotto!

How is the affiliate space changing? Is it important to offer more than just written word articles and casino reviews? 
To be successful, you always need to offer the full package. Reviews are certainly still important, and you must show what’s both good and bad, giving a rounded, impartial opinion. But we think affiliates these days need to offer some extra special sauce as users want to interact more with the product. So free games to play are great, plus something different that makes your site really engaging and entertaining. An extra ‘stickiness’.
We want to give people a reason to come to us and spend time on the site, not just bring them in and push them out to operators straight away. There are loads of sites which just list off operator offers, but we give something more.
 
Tell us about the new free-to-play slots tournament formats you’ve launched.
Our slots tournaments have always been very popular. Previously, people played for fun for the chance to win merchandise or avatars, and to earn Xpoints to open chests.
Now we’re offering even more reason to get involved, with a free chance to win cash prizes, and it’s a huge success. People still love climbing the leaderboards and earning Xpoints, but cash prizes add extra value for the player and really enhance the user-XP.
We’re also launching new types of tournaments. These includes Turbos, which run for one to three hours to speed up the fun of winning a prize, and Risk tournaments, where players are given a fixed balance and can adjust their bet size on each spin.
 
How can you use these tournaments as marketing assets?
We focus on some of the most popular games for our tournaments, meaning there’s double appeal – play one of your favourite games whilst also being in for a chance to win a cash prize, so there’s double benefit to the player
The chance to win a cash prize in a free tournament is massively appealing and gives people a reason to register (you don’t have to register to just play a demo game). But once they’re registered, we can target our marketing to them.
We can really tailor our messaging more effectively. If a user has just played a tournament on a certain game, we can talk to them about where they can play the game for real money and tell them about the welcome offers available. This is so much more effective than blanket marketing.
We can also offer tournaments on new games releases, creating a real buzz around a launch, which adds value for the operator or games studio.
 
Is there a plan to offer paid-for tournaments to build even bigger prize pools?
Absolutely! That’s the next phase. By offering paid for tournaments, we can fund even bigger prizes that go deeper down the leaderboards to give more people chance to win. This will attract more players and create an even bigger buzz! Of course, free tournaments will still be available. There will be no obligation to play for real money if you don’t want to.
 
You’ve recently launched in the US and Canada. What are some of the challenges you’ve faced entering these new markets?
Different regulations are the biggest challenges and making sure we’re always compliant. We’ve had to be very flexible entering the Ontario market and had to adapt quickly to comply with the changes. One example is age verification, which has always been important to us, even though our games are free to play. Each jurisdiction has different verification requirements, which means working with different data providers and building our registration processes differently.
 
Sports betting is huge in the US, but how do you see the online casino space developing there?
You’re absolutely right that sports betting is massively popular in America. Around 30 states have legalized sports betting, while only a handful so far have launched online casino markets. So, casino is proving to be a slower process, and there may be less political appetite for it currently. But we’re keeping an eye on the landscape there and are always looking for opportunities to expand into new markets.
 
What’s next on the horizon for Slots Temple?
We want to continue building and diversifying our tournament product, and that means introducing more tournament variants to make it even more exciting and compelling.
Soon, we hope to introduce the paid-for tournaments we spoke about, so we can offer bigger prizes. We want to attract more players and continue building a bigger community among our users. Player communities are vital to what we do and should be a crucial part of an affiliate’s strategy.
