bwin to Quit from Russian Sports Betting Market
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

Sports betting brand Bwin is going to quit from Russia’s online gambling market, as its parent company, A&NN Investments, is looking to unload its license in the country.

The license is held by Digital Betting LLC, which operates online in Russia using the Bwin.ru domain through a joint venture with UK-listed GVC Holdings. Bwin.ru is a joint venture of GVC and A&NN, which is owned by Russian billionaire Alexander Mamut, who also controls digital media firm Rambler.

A source for the website claimed that Digital Betting’s license may be transferred to a division of payment processing outfit Qiwi, which handles transactions for multiple Russian-licensed bookmakers. Qiwi has denied this report. Other sources claimed that The Stars Group (TSG) is in the running to acquire Digital Betting’s license.

As mentioned about, the panel discussion is very important to attend as it will follow the Baltic regulators’ panel discussion.

Make sure to book as fast as possible as the seating is limited! You can choose one of the packages that include either delegate pass or delegate pass and accommodation combo (VIP Package)!

As mentioned in earlier press releases, the conference is going ahead as planned and based on official sources, Estonia has allowed from June 1 for citizens from EU and EEA countries with a slow current spread of COVID-19 to enter the country without the requirement of a 14-day self-isolation period.

RubyPlay’s Quest of Gods In Tight Final of Slot Championship
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

For the first time in their young history RubyPlay, entered their slot “Quest of Gods”, into the £100,000 Slots Championship at Lottoland. Being a newcomer they hoped for a good showing in its Quarter Final encounter against the legendary “Gonzo’s Quest” but it surpassed expectations by not only winning, but winning by a strong margin of 83% to 17%.

Next up in the Semi Final – an even tougher prospect – up against 2019 Champion, “Mustang Gold”. In a much tighter encounter, “Quest of Gods” again caused an upset by winning by 55% to 45% – setting up a final against “Holmes and the Stolen Stones”.

By this stage everyone was expecting a close run in the Final round – and it didn’t disappoint! “Quest of Gods” took an early lead on day one against Holmes and the Stolen Stones, but over the week, the game clawed back to eventually pip the RubyPlay game to the win by 51% to 49%.

Ittai Zur, Chief Operating Officer at RubyPlay said “As a new player in the slots market it was a great honour taking part in the Slots Championship with Lottoland. We also knew it would give us a good idea of how our games compare in terms of popularity with some of the biggest slot developers, competition that we have a lot of respect for.

We are delighted with how “Quest of Gods” resonated with Lottoland players, and to only just miss out on being the Lottoland Slots Champions of 2020 was incredible.”

Anthony Morris, VP Gaming & Sports at Lottoland had this to say “We knew that Quest of Gods was popular with our players at Lottoland, but to be honest we didn’t think it would do as well as it did against some smash hit content from other major providers. We look forward to more great games from the team at RubyPlay over the coming months and years”.
