Souped-up sequel to Reel Rush is packed with fun and features galore

NetEnt’s latest release, Reel Rush 2, has taken the best parts of the 2013 hit prequel and added a bunch of fun-filled extras and social gaming-inspired mechanics.

It is a franticly-paced, 5-reel video slot with 3125 betways, set in a crazy, colourful, video game influenced world of juicy candy, cube-shaped fruit and starry wilds. It features Wild Substitutions, Re-Spins, Free Spins and Super Free Spins – as well as a whole new set of eight Random Features where anything can happen.

With more NetEnt innovation, when free spins are triggered, players are offered three choices: Buy Super Tokens, gamble all Super Tokens for more super tokens to upgrade to Super Free Spins or continue to regular Free Spins. This gives players a degree of decision-making that blends odds with strategy to create a different, innovative way of playing.

“The original Reel Rush was a frenetic experience, loaded full of madness and mayhem. Players loved it so much that we’ve turned the dial up to 11!“ said Bryan Upton, NetEnt Director of Games.

“Reel Rush 2 is a game for everyone: a top prize of 25,000 times your stake will attract savvy players, while the high-entertainment factor will appeal to casual players and video game enthusiasts.  We have designed an innovative Super Token system that we believe offers players more choice and control over their Bonus experience, this is another exciting first for the industry from NetEnt.”

Philippines Approves New 5% Tax on Gaming Revenues of POGOs
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

The Philippines authorities have approved a new 5% tax on the gaming revenues of Philippine Offshore Gaming Operators (POGOs).

The House Committee on Ways and Means passed the measure which sees POGOs classified as resident corporations and therefore subject to an additional 5% franchise tax on top of current tax and fees.

PAGCOR currently collects a 2% franchise tax from licensed offshore operators, generating around Php8 billion in revenue each year, but the 5% tax is expected to push that figure to Php20 billion.

The new measure also allows for all foreign employees of POGOs earning Php600,000 (US$11,850) or more to be taxed 25% on their wages and other allowances, potentially pushing the government’s annual revenue from the POGO industry north of Php45 billion.

ACMA Issues First Directions for ISPs to Block Unauthorised Offshore Sites
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

The Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) has issued notices to Internet service providers (ISPs), under Section 313(3) of the telecommunications act, to take steps to prevent their customers from accessing unauthorised offshore sites “Emu Casino” and “Fair Go Casino.”

ACMA said that the two sites it was targeting offered casino-style games, which are prohibited by the Interactive Gambling Act.

Section 313(3) has previously been employed to block access to child abuse material, tackle online fraud and prevent the spread of malware. The government in mid-2017 released guidelines for the use of the power by Commonwealth agencies, following an incident where a notice issued by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) saw hundreds of thousands of sites erroneously blocked.

“Emu Casino and Fair Go Casino are illegal sites that target Australians, and between the two we have received more than 50 complaints about their conduct,” ACMA’s chair Nerida O’Loughlin said.
