IGT Global Services will be the provider for Norway’s new online bingo solution in a recent deal made with Norsk Tipping AS.

The new deal comes after an already existing six-year business relationship between IGT and the state operator.
Norsk Tipping’s head of igaming and VLTs, Hans Erland, noted that the new online bingo solution would bring an enhanced digital offering to players and the proceeds would remain in Norway, being donated to support the arts, sport and cultural initiatives.

The contract provides for an online bingo solution in combination with online casino and instant win games. It is a five-year contract and includes provision for three two-year extension, potentially giving an overall 11-year relationship.

Norsk Tipping’s current digital bingo platform was provided by IGT in 2014. Its replacement is built on multi-channel HTML5 for desktop, tablet and mobile and offers 10 game variations.

Declan Harkin, senior vice-president and chief operating officer, international, at IGT, added: “This agreement enables Norsk Tipping, a leader in regulated digital gaming, to strengthen player acquisition and retention through IGT’s new online bingo solution, offered in combination with online casino and instant win games and available seamlessly in a single game window.

UK ASA Bans “Misleading” Ad of Lucky Go Studio
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

The UK Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) has banned an ad of Lucky Go Studio after a claimant challenged whether an in-game ad was deceptive owing to unrealistic chances of winning prizes while using the app.

The commercial was first seen on 25 November 2019, which was initially shown as an in-play video ad for the Lucky Goal app. It showed someone attempting to order a pair of headphones on Amazon’s mobile phone screen but getting a message saying “Your credit card has been declined.”

The ad then featured “Lucky Goal–Funny every day” on-screen text and “New chances to win every day!” “Before the user begins the Lucky Goal app, plays a roulette game and wins $85.

A survey was then shown where two correct answers to the questions resulted in the user winning $100. The user then received a scratch card for $54. The ad concluded with a text indicating “LUCKY GOAL” and “PLAY. WIN. REDEEM” on-screen, below which were Amazon and PayPal logos.

Lucky Go Studio refused to respond to the ASA’s decision, leading the advertising watchdog to claim that this was an “apparent disregard” for the CAP code.

The ASA explained that the ad in question must not reappear in its current form: “We reminded them of their responsibility to respond promptly to our enquiries and told them to do so in future,” it said.

“We considered consumers would understand from the ad that users of the Lucky Goal app stood a reasonable chance of winning the sums of money featured in the ad and that they would be able to redeem any money they won. However, we received no information from the advertiser demonstrating that users had won and redeemed the sums featured.

“In the absence of such evidence, we concluded that the claim had not been substantiated and was therefore misleading.”
