English football clubs Chelsea and Liverpool have terminated their partnership with Russian betting company 1xBET. Another English club Tottenham had already cut off the ties with the betting firm.

The company’s license was suspended last month, after news emerged of their website entertaining bets on children’s sport and cockfighting. The company reportedly used Totenham’s English striker Harry Kane’s image to encourage people to gamble in Kenya.

The UK’s Gambling Commission had contacted both clubs to advise potential legal action under the Gambling Act for unlawful advertising if they continued to be associated with the 1xBET.

The news also comes amid Huddersfield Town being fined by the FA for their shirt sponsorship spoof with Paddy Power in pre-season and thus raising further questions about the relationships between football clubs and betting firms.

1xBet are believed to be currently investigating how their brand came to be promoted on prohibited sites and have temporarily stopped advertising in the UK.

EVOLUTION ADDS POWER BLACKJACK TO ITS GROWING ‘INFINITE’ RANGE OF GAMES
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Evolution Gaming, leading provider of Live Casino solutions, today announced the launch of its newest scalable Blackjack game, Power Blackjack. First showcased at ICE 2020, the game further extends the company’s popular Infinite range, which includes titles such as Infinite Blackjack and Free Bet Blackjack.

As in all of Evolution’s Infinite games, Power Blackjack offers an unlimited number of seats for players at a single table. What’s unique with Power Blackjack is the added opportunity for players to multiply their winnings by choosing to double, triple or quadruple down their bet on the two initial dealt cards, even after a split.

Evolution strives to continuously improve its offering while, at the same time, developing the entire Live Casino market by means of cutting-edge product innovation. As we introduce games for new audiences in the form of our Game Shows category, we continue to develop our offering for traditional live players. During the year, we have released several new innovations of classic table games of which Power Blackjack is the latest. The release of this new version of Blackjack is in line with us constantly striving to further strengthen Evolution’s leading position as a developer in these traditional gaming categories.

Todd Haushalter, Chief Product Officer at Evolution Gaming, said: “With this game the mission was to give players more of what they love about Blackjack without changing the underlying gameplay. We know that players love classic Blackjack, but we are always looking for new ways to keep it fresh. Creating a version where players can triple and quadruple down, instead of just double down, felt like a great way to do this.”

He added: “A few years ago we created Infinite Blackjack, which is simply a Blackjack platform that allows an unlimited number of players at just one table, instead of the standard seven seats. Building on the success of our proven Infinite format, we have created further new Blackjack game types such as Free Bet Blackjack and now Power Blackjack, with more to come in the future.”
