Online casino 32Red has stated that “a blanket ban on sponsoring clubs will not stop problem gambling.” The statement is made in response to the new “National Strategy” by the UK Gambling Commission.

The statement follows the recent announcement that 32Red has signed a new sponsorship deal with Derby County Football Club.

Neil Banbury, General Manager of the gambling platform commented: “We welcome the targeted, problem-specific measures in the Gambling Commission’s strategy that will help support the small proportion of customers who are problem gamblers.

“We look forward to engaging with the Gambling Commission and others to ensure that we continue to identify and support those who have a problem while allowing those who simply enjoy using our products to continue to do so. We also welcome any efforts to make gambling safer.

“But a blanket ban on sponsoring clubs will not stop problem gambling. 32Red have a keen commitment to all the football clubs we work with – underpinned by our group sustainability strategy.

“Our new model of sponsorship means we invest in both clubs and communities – including our recently launched project with Derby County’s Community Trust that is helping men access mental health support who otherwise would be suffering in silence.”

The new sponsorship deal with the football club will deliver a new mental-health support scheme to support men who are suffering from mild mental health issues, while also offering referral services to those who are suffering with more severe problems.

The colourful and enchanting world of butterflies is now even more magical with Butterfly Staxx 2TM – the latest release from NetEnt has been enhanced with a pick and click bonus game offering even more ways to win.

In this 5-reel, 4-row, 40-fixed line video slot, players can unlock up to three play areas in a single bet, where the reels in each play area spin independently and simultaneously. This innovation is triggered during any Re-Spin round which is activated when a full stack of four Butterfly symbols lands and covers the entire reel or by choosing Butterfly Spins when a bonus game is awarded.

The game also contains a brand-new bonus game Butterfly Frenzy where the standard

pick-and-click is taken to new exciting levels. Butterfly Frenzy consists of stages up to level 5. The game starts with 10 picks and the player picks butterflies that awards coin wins to increase the total win. Each stage awards 10 picks to the player which are added to remaining picks from the previous stage.

“Butterfly Staxx 2 is a true sequel to the highly successful Butterfly Staxx. It takes a familiar, powerful mechanic that has been amplified to meet the voracious player expectations of today. This game shows the industry needs all different types of games and this is all about player entertainment and stickiness. As always, adding enhanced player interaction means engagement and success, and the multi-level pick-and-click bonus does just that. Another modern-day classic in the making.” said Bryan Upton, NetEnt Director of Games.
