Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Microgaming has released a new title to its portfolio of games, as part of a new exclusive supply deal with Golden Rock Studios.

Founded by gaming industry experts James Curwen (CEO) and Will Mathieson (CPO), Golden Rock Studios is a game development studio based in the United Kingdom that will distribute its content through Microgaming’s award-winning platform.

The studio’s first title, Volatile Slot, is an energetic five-by-three reel, 10-payline online slot that pays left to right and is bursting with dynamic features, including two different game modes and a free spins bonus.

An eruption of two types of wilds, volcanic wilds and exploding wilds, spins in on the reels, awarding multipliers and triggering the free spins feature. Volcanic wilds appear on reels two, three and four, substituting for any other symbol, with the potential to transform into exploding wilds to reveal a 2x, 3x or 4x multiplier. If more than one exploding wild lands, the initial multiplier is multiplied by each exploding wild on the reels, with three exploding wilds awarding the maximum 64x multiplier (4x³) on total wins.

When Volatile Slot’s frenzied free spins feature is triggered, the player is awarded a minimum of 10 free spins and experiences enhanced reel sets, with even more volcanic wilds and exploding wilds spinning into action.

Fiery fortune awaits in Volatile Slot, available exclusively to Microgaming operators from Monday 11 November.

“With more than 15 new games in the pipeline, Golden Rock Studios are set to broaden our range with fresh and diverse content. Volatile Slot is an impressive debut title and is now available across Microgaming’s entire customer base following a two-week period of exclusivity with LeoVegas.”- Jean-Luc Ferriere, Chief Commercial Officer at Microgaming.

“We are proud to team up with Microgaming and look forward to providing them with many more exclusive games in the coming months. Our first release, Volatile Slot, delivers an exhilarating, high-volatility gameplay experience and is filled with stimulating game mechanics and vibrant visuals. This slot is by its very nature, volatile, and if the volcano erupts, the level of extremity is taken to a whole new level for the player, with the maximum win at a 25,600 times stake!” – James Curwen, CEO at Golden Rock Studios.

Francaise des Jeux (FDJ), the operator of France’s national lottery games, is going to participate in the auction for the UK National Lottery license. FDJ has already cast an eye over the UK’s National Lottery.

As per the reports, FDJ has held talks with Rothschild, the investment bank responsible for seeking a successor to Camelot, the lottery operator.

The privatisation of FDJ was the biggest stock market flotation for years and it is no coincidence that French president Emmanuel Macron was a senior executive with Rothschild before entering politics. He is selling off a number of state-owned companies to raise money. The FDJ float gave him €1.8bn. The French Government is retaining a 50% stake in the company.

The UK’s Gambling Commission is using Rothschild to run the National Lottery license auction. When the formalities are concluded early next year, the new licensee will run the lottery on a monopoly basis for up to 10 years.

Mohegan Gaming Reports Q4 Fiscal 2019 Results
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment (MGE) has released the operating results for its fourth fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2019. During the three-month period, net revenues totalled US$414 m, a 19.2% rise from US$347.2 m in 2018.

Mohegan’s income from operations in Q4 was US$15.7 m, a 77.4% decline from the US$69.6 m that it had posted in 2018. This was primarily driven by an impairment charge at Mohegan Sun Pocono.

AEBITDA of US$89.4 m was a 5.4% decrease from the US$94.5 m in the prior year. Consolidated net revenues were up 19.2%, driven by the positive contribution of the Niagara resorts and continued outperformance from non-gaming revenue growth.

“MGE had a remarkable fiscal fourth quarter given the inclusion of two new competitors in our primary northeast market in the last 15 months, and we are off to a good start thus far in the first quarter of fiscal 2020 as well,” Mario Kontomerkos, President and CEO of Mohegan said.

“These strong results can be attributed to a commendable management effort by our property leadership as well as our first full quarter of operations from our Niagara resorts. Outside of North America, project Inspire in South Korea continues under construction and remains on track for a 2022 opening. In connection with Inspire, we are pleased to announce our partnership with Hanwha Corporation, one of the country’s largest conglomerates, who will serve as our primary general contractor and will also provide the project with important local operational expertise and credit enhancement. These domestic and international efforts, which also include the September announcement of our venture with Virgin Hotels in Las Vegas, have placed MGE on solid ground for success for generations to come,” Mario Kontomerkos added.
