Prague 7 has achieved zero tolerance to gambling. In October, the last gambling site at Milady Horákové street was closed.

“It’s great news. In 2015, we set a zero-tolerance against gambling and gaming machines through a decree of the City of Prague 7. Since then, we have been pushing the Treasury to speed up the lengthy process of licensing. It took longer than [expected], but in the end it [happened]. Prague 7 is now completely without gambling and gaming machines. We are pleased that Prague 7 is no longer contributing to becoming a pathological player and destroying life,” Jan Čižinský, Mayor of Prague 7 said.

The local referendum on the abolition of gambling clubs in Prague 7 took place in 2014. Although ultimately, it was not due to lower participation than required by law, almost 92% of the more than seven thousand voting citizens voted in favour of zero tolerance.

“The signal from our citizens was absolutely clear. At the beginning of the last parliamentary term, 26 gambling venues were allowed in Prague 7, and we did everything we could to cancel them all. There are a number of negative phenomena associated with casinos and gambling, whether from security or social perspective. Also in Prague 7, there were several very problematic gambling houses, where public order and even criminal offenses were often violated. At the same time, the availability of gambling clubs has a very negative impact on the number of pathological players or people who, through gambling, found themselves in crisis situations,” Ondřej Mirovský, Councillor of Prague 7 said.

Fantasma Games Launches Riviera Star
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

Fantasma Games has released its latest online slot game Riviera Star. The glamorous slot delivers plenty of big-win potential with thrilling features including Respins, Free Spins, Sticky Wilds and Multipliers.

Any line win activates the Respin feature and sees all winning symbols locked in their position while the rest of the reels spin. Any new line win during the Respin feature is locked and the rest of the reels spin again. When no new line wins occur, the Respin feature ends.

The unique Superstar feature can be randomly activated at the start of any base game spin and sees the Superstar symbol, which acts as a Sticky Wild, placed randomly at a position on reels two to four. It also boasts an increasing all-win multiplier.

Riviera Star also features a Free Spin bonus game triggered when three Scatter Symbols land during the base game. The player receives ten Free Spins and the Superstar feature and all-wins multiplier are also activated.

“The team has done an excellent job of creating a perfectly balanced slot with a unique Superstar feature that combined with an unlimited multiplier, delivers plenty of big win potential that even the Riviera’s rich and famous will be envious of,” Fredrik Johansson, CEO of Fantasma Games said.

France’s Française des Jeux Secures New Jackpot Insurance

Française des Jeux (FDJ), the operator of France’s national lottery games, has announced the implementation of a comprehensive insurance policy to cover its counterparty risk from January 1, 2020.

One of the changes involved in the tax and regulatory reform carried out as part of the privatisation of FDJ was the discontinuation of the “counterparty fund” system.

This reform is part of a broader process of clarifying the relations between the state and the company, which is now responsible for covering counterparty risk through an insurance policy, at its own expense.

FDJ has taken out a comprehensive insurance policy with a number of top-tier French and international insurers and reinsurers to cover its counterparty risk, which will take effect from January 1, 2020.

This contract, drawn up with insurance broker Marsh, provides a guarantee for the gains falling within its scope on an aggregate basis. It provides annual coverage of up to €150 million. All costs related to this insurance policy are in line with expectations and are covered by the planned budget.
