Microgaming has launched Astro Legends: Lyra and Erion, a new game created exclusively for the company by Foxium.

The game is available to Microgaming operators on desktop and mobile as part of an exclusive supply deal with Foxium.

Astro Legends is a cluster type of game that revolves around two titular characters, Lyra and Erion. The characters are illuminated with high-fidelity 3D models, extensive animations, and gameplay that takes place across a series of stunning backdrops. There is a mesmerising synthesiser soundtrack inspired by golden-age sci-fi greats as well.

David Reynolds, Games Publisher at Microgaming, said “Astro Legends has fantastic Real-Time 3D rendering for animated characters combined with a gripping soundtrack, which together helps to create a highly entertaining and immersive experience. The innovative reel design aids the exciting chase a player will feel during the Sonic Re-spin where the max win is very high. The bonus round is triggered through an engaging collection mechanic which will aid player retention, making it a perfect game to add to Microgaming’s diverse content offering.”

Åke André, CEO of Foxium, added: “We are delighted to release Astro Legends: Lyra and Erion exclusive to Microgaming which features fantastic graphics with a story-driven and exhilarating gameplay. Astro Legends: Lyra and Erion’s richly textured design, graphics and atmospheric music will engage, excite and thrill, and we are certain it will be a big hit amongst experienced players and novices. We are looking forward to further games going live with Microgaming in the coming months.”

The story of Astro Legends incorporates innovative features and employs a unique style of gameplay that plays out on a gem-shaped reel, composed of 22 crystal cells that contain a wealth of originally crafted symbols. The game features multiplier wilds, a high-stakes respins round, and a pick bonus game that rewards players for successfully completing multiple levels.

Players have the chance to win rewards of up to 15,000 times their total bet with the Sonic Respin feature, which is randomly activated by landing any cluster win with identical symbols and includes Wild Multipliers that can appear at random to add between 2x and 5x prizes to total wins.

Breaking News: Dutch Senate votes to legalize online gambling

The Netherlands Senate voted today in favor of the country’s long-awaited online gaming legislation, which was approved by the House of Representatives back in 2014.

The new regulatory regime will allow operators to secure online sports betting and casino gaming licenses to serve Dutch consumers, subject to secondary legislation that is yet to be submitted for European Commission approval.

Today, the Dutch Senate voted in favor of legislation to legalize internet-based gambling, clearing the way for foreign and Dutch firms to apply for licenses.

On Monday, the Financieele Dagblad said some 300 companies have expressed interest in running a gambling website in the Netherlands and about 50 are expected to make a formal application for a license when they are up for grabs next year. Tuesday’s vote comes two years after the lower house voted in favor of allowing third parties to legally offer online gambling.

Holland Casino is the Netherlands’ only state-regulated gambling establishment but foreign firms widely flout the ban and continue to target Dutch punters.

The two Christian parties in the ruling coalition voted against the legislation. They claim allowing more companies to offer online betting will lead to more problems with addiction.

Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) has asked all the internet gateway providers and Telecom department to run an internet safety solution programme to block online gambling websites. BTRC is believed to have received an instruction to effect the same from the country’s government.

The telecom regulator has sent the order to block the websites so that these websites will not be accessible in Bangladesh again.

“It might take few more hours to block all the sites completely as blocking any site is so technical,” said Md Emdadul Hoque, general secretary of Internet Service Provider Association of Bangladesh (ISPAB).

A top official of the BTRC said they have often found complaints from different sides about online gambling and that needs to block for the sake of safe internet.
