Shared online poker liquidity, under scrutiny
Reading Time: < 1 minute

Italian politicians have raised concerns about the shared online poker liquidity project’s impact on problem gambling and are opposing the agreement.

 

Poker has been losing relevance over the last years and the segment is fighting to unroll new tactics to revitalise the activity and recover some of the interest it had over a decade ago. The shared online poker liquidity project was introduced as a solution to the poker crisis but is now facing opposition from Italian politicians.

The agreement would see France, Spain, Portugal and Italy working together through their gambling regulation bodies in order to have players from one country play against users in another one. However, some Italian politicians and responsible gambling campaigners are endangering the project as they raised concerns about it’s impact on gamblers and the potential flow of money related to organised crime structures.

Italian Deputy Paola Binetti was quoted by AGIMEG and assured that the plan could stimulate illegal activities and gambling addiction. She explained that there’s a thin line between legal and illicit in the digitalisation of the gambling industry and questioned the current form of the shared liquidity project for its imprecision on legal and illegal activities.

The international settlement was signed on July 6th by authorities from France, Portugal, Spain and Italy but could face some turbulence on the near future.

iSoftBet unveils haunting Xpanding Ways in Phantasmic Fortunes
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

iSoftBet, the leading online games supplier and content aggregator, has released haunting hit, Phantasmic Fortunes, just in time for Halloween.

The slot, exclusive to LeoVegas from the 14th-21st October,  is the first to feature iSoftBet’s Xpanding Ways mechanic, which sees more spaces open up on the reels if a diamond appears, increasing the paylines from 243 up to a maximum of 7,776.

As players gather more diamonds, the orb prizes that float above each column come into play. Each orb contains random prizes, which could be cash, magic modifiers or even trigger the bonus feature, which sees prizes significantly increase in value. These rewards can be triggered by players expanding their reels to full size before landing another diamond symbol below the sought-after orb.

If any orb prizes are triggered, then the base game resets to its original 5×3 format, while also revealing new rewards that players can aim to reach with the expanding reel.

To start the free spins round, three bonus symbols are required to land on any spin, or players must reach a bonus round prize orb in gameplay, where the orbs are significantly boosted in value, with some offering up to 1,000x cash value, among other thrilling prizes.

Phantasmic Fortunes joins the latest game Kings of Gold in iSoftBet’s impressive slots portfolio, alongside top performing Gold Digger and Western Gold Megaways™ which both contain the supplier’s top performing Hold & Win feature.

Mark Claxton, Head of Games at iSoftBet, said: “With its mystical theme and bewitching win potential, Phantasmic Fortunes is the perfect addition to our portfolio in time for Halloween.

“With players aiming to rise from the depths of the reels to claim their wins with our riches-filled orbs and lucrative bonus rounds, Phantasmic Fortunes is set to be another thrilling title for iSoftBet.

“It also marks the debut of another exciting new feature for us, Xpanding Ways, which we will see more of in the future.”

Johan Ekberg, Casino Manager at LeoVegas, said: “We have a longstanding relationship with iSoftBet and Phantasmic Fortunes has been a big hit for us during the exclusive period, and we expect the popularity to continue through Halloween and for many months afterwards, with its artfully-crated setting and thrilling gameplay.

“Our partnership continues to strengthen with iSoftBet and we look forward to our next exciting exclusive collaboration.”

Guild Esports Plc (Guild), the global esports team organisation headquartered in London, today announces its entry into Valorant, a competitive 5v5 multiplayer tactical first-person shooter, with the signing of a top-flight roster of professional players who will compete in the upcoming First Strike tournament, Riot Games’ debut esports tournament for Valorant.

Guild’s Valorant team has been acquired from the top-ranked Swedish team Bonk, one of Europe’s most successful Valorant teams. The team was carefully chosen following a rigorous selection process and is comprised of five sought-after players: Yacine Laghmari ‘Yacine’, Malkolm Rench ‘bonkar’, Leo Janneson Leo’, William Sundin ‘draken’, and Filip Gauffin ‘Goffe’. The team’s inaugural competition under the Guild banner will take place at the start of First Strike in early November.

The team has already achieved success, finishing in the top two in the recent Ignition Series and Mandatory.gg Cup tournaments and the players are excited to take the next step and emerge as champions under Guild.

Yacine is a top-tier former CS:GO player who has made waves early on in his Valorant career.

bonkar was Sweden’s first professional Valorant player. He is a former Paladins professional player and has won two Paladins World Championships. He is regarded as one of the best players in the game and is known for producing impressive results.

Leo, aged 16 is a talented emerging player known as “The Young Gun”. He has achieved professional success at a young age.

draken is a tier-one former CS:GO professional player and well known star player with a significant following.

Goffe is a former top CS:GO professional player and Valorant amateur who is widely regarded as an industry “one-to-watch” and is now ready to compete at a professional level.

The finalised Valorant roster marks Guild’s first step into hardcore PC-based esports, following its launch into the cross-platform Rocket League and EA Sports FIFA titles earlier this year.

Guild is developing a talent pipeline in the UK based on the traditional academy model which will see the most able players such as Valorant amateurs scouted by Guild’s talent scout network and coached by industry leaders in order to attain the skillset required to win and take their careers to the next level.

Valorant is a fast-growing esports title published by Riot Games, the renowned developer behind League of Legends. Valorant is followed by a large audience with recent tournaments reported to have recorded over one million viewers.

Carleton Curtis, Executive Chairman at Guild, commented: “Joining the Valorant community is a perfect step for Guild and we are delighted to expand into the new exciting and emerging esports space. Valorant is destined to become a major esport with global reach and deep fan bases and it benefits from the prestige of being developed by best-in-class publisher Riot Games. With these signings, Guild has established itself as a multi-disciplinary esports business and we are looking forward to fielding rosters in new games as we continue to scale and invest in our business utilising the war chest we raised in our IPO.

Valorant is an exciting esport and since its launch this year has already made a big impact on the competitive gaming ecosystem, winning over top pros from established games like Overwatch. We have high ambitions for our top-calibre team in the upcoming First Strike tournament. We are proud to welcome the players to our Guild family where we will coach and support them to become world champions.”

Yacine Laghmari ‘Yacine’, Professional Valorant Player at Guild, commented: “Valorant is one of the most dynamic esports out there and being in Guild’s first Valorant roster is an exciting opportunity. I’m looking forward to playing my part in the future of Guild and the team.

Guild is an organisation with big ambition that is on a path to achieve great things and I’m proud to be a part of that. I’ve always been an ambitious player and want to create a legacy that will last.

Our team has already proved itself at a top level and now the goal is to become world champions.”
