NOVOMATIC teams up with Miramax for a blockbuster
Reading Time: 2 minutes

NOVOMATIC has entered a licensing agreement with Miramax® for the rights to produce casino games based on the infamous crime and horror film ‘From Dusk Till Dawn’. As part of the multi-year agreement, NOVOMATIC is able to develop and distribute ‘From Dusk Till Dawn’ branded games for both land-based and online casino platforms.

 

Directed by Robert Rodriguez and written by Quentin Tarantino, ‘From Dusk Till Dawn’ celebrated its 20th anniversary last year, providing an ideal time to resurrect the film on casino floors worldwide. Rodriguez more recently developed ‘From Dusk Till Dawn’ into an original series that has gained rave reviews and recently concluded its third season.

Staying true to the cult classic, the ‘From Dusk Till Dawn’ slot game delivers an explosive adventure for slot enthusiasts and fans of the film alike. Starring George Clooney and Quentin Tarantino as the Gecko brothers, Salma Hayek as Santanico Pandemonium, as well as Harvey Keitel, Juliette Lewis and Danny Trejo in footage from the film, players are taken on a journey to Mexico from the comfort of a V.I.P. chair on the luxury NOVOSTAR® V.I.P. III and V.I.P. Lounge™ cabinets that control the action and provide gripping surround sound.

In addition to various features and mini bonuses happening during the base game, three bonus symbols trigger the ‘Bonus Twister’ wheel that players spin to win credits or enter a bonus. Sit back and watch the sensual dancer as she moves around the reels in the ‘Dancing Bonus’, acting as a ‘Dancing Wild’ symbol that can fill up to three reels and rack up big wins by doing so. In the ‘Mugshot Bonus’, reels spin to uncover Clooney and Tarantino mugshots that match various credits.

‘From Dusk Till Dawn’ will make its international debut at the upcoming G2E in Las Vegas!

Thomas Graf, CTO NOVOMATIC, said: “From Dusk Till Dawn is a cult film that has regained attention due to its 20-year anniversary. We are very pleased to be partnering with Miramax on this great brand and are excited to combine our world-class gaming technology with this distinguished film and bring it to casino players around the world.

Portugal Reviews Gambling Tax Regime
Reading Time: 1 minute

 

The government of Portugal has started the review of its existing gambling tax regime. The government has appointed a working group for analysing the state of the country’s online gambling industry and finding any possible changes required in the system. The working group comprises six members, including representatives from SRIJ and Portugal’s Ministries of Finance, Economy, Tourism, and Labour. They have to submit their findings and proposals within 30 days.

The existing gambling law in the country came into force in 2015. The country’s gambling regulator Serviço de Regulação Inspeção de Jogos (SRIJ) first licensed a foreign company in May 2016, which started a new era in the provision of regulated gaming and betting services to Portuguese customers. The regulatory body has issued a total of 16 licenses since then.

While the reorganisation of Portugal’s market was generally welcomed by EU authorities and industry stakeholders, the country’s taxation regime was heavily criticised and rates were deemed too high to offer viable prospects for the nascent market.
