Safer Gambling Week: British Gambling industry unites once more for ground breaking campaign
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

The UK Gambling Industry, led by the Betting and Gaming Council (BGC), the Bingo Association (BA) and the British Amusement Catering Trade Association (bacta), has announced that Safer Gambling Week 2020 will take place from November 19 to November 25.

The annual campaign builds on the success of Responsible Gambling Week, which began in 2017 – the first campaign to unite all sectors of the gambling industry – and marks the successful growth and evolution of the on-going awareness and education campaign, participants and supporters of which now extend far beyond the gambling sector.

Operators promote responsible gambling 365 days of the year, but Safer Gambling Week creates the opportunity for all businesses and organisations to start a conversation about safer gambling not only with their customers, but also with their staff and in turn their friends and family.

Michael Dugher, Chief Executive, Betting and Gaming Council, said: “As the new body representing the betting and gaming industry, the BGC is committed to driving up standards and promoting safer gambling.

“Safer Gambling Week is a fantastic initiative which the BGC are proud to play a leading role in. This awareness campaign is now in its fourth year and it has achieved a significant increase in engagement at all levels on the tools and support available to customers.

“We achieved over 25 million impressions on social media in 2019, setting a new benchmark for the campaign, which demonstrates the breadth and reach of the campaign.

“Our members are determined to raise standards and as part of this year’s campaign can point to significant changes that we have introduced, including new cooling-off periods on gaming machines, substantially increased funding for research, education and treatment; a ‘whistle to whistle’ ban on advertising during sport; new ID and age-verification checks and a ban on betting with credit cards.

“And during the covid-19 outbreak, we have published a 10-pledge action plan to promote safer gambling, while our members also voluntarily agreed to remove TV and radio gaming advertising, replacing their slots with safer gambling messages or donating them to charity.

“As businesses emerge from lockdown, I’m looking forward to this year’s Safer Gambling Week being a tremendous success.”

“Safer Gambling Week allows bacta members to highlight their year-long commitment to safer gambling, the safer gambling tools available to customers and the quality of the staff that engage with our customers on a daily basis,” John White, Chief Executive of bacta, said.

The innovative online casino game provider, Red Rake Gaming, has released the long-awaited video slot Super 20 Stars today, for all fans of the Super series. It is a 5×3 reel video slot that offers all the features from the Super series of games, along with some new crystal symbols with impressive multipliers.

An innovative feature called Crystallize Symbols has been added to this new video slot, previously unavailable in any of the other games in the Super series. It causes symbols to crystallize after a blue star appears at the bottom of the screen, along with another one to the right, which signals a position in the rows. Once these blue stars appear the feature will begin. The symbol in the position that has been signaled will crystallize, and in turn it will crystallize all the other symbols of the same type. Once they have been crystallized a side bar with multipliers will appear, and the win awarded by the crystal symbol will be multiplied by a random value of up to x50. This feature keeps the excitement going from beginning to end.

This new slot game also includes all the best wins from the massively successful Super 5, Super 7, Super 10, Super 12 and Super 15 Stars. All these games are very well-known and popular with all Red Rake Gaming players.

One of these features is the Star Fusion Minigame, which appears in Super 15 Stars. This minigame is activated by filling the progress bar that appears on the side of the screen, and it gives you the chance to obtain even more wins by combining Super 15 symbols to form bigger symbols. This feature keeps the excitement going from beginning to end.

Super 12 symbol launches the “Lucky Stars” feature. The symbol is converted into 3 stars which remain fixed and offers 3 free spins to players going back to start the counter again with each additional star. Throughout this feature, players also have the possibility to accumulate wins in the “Minor, Major and Grand” Jackpots which are delivered when it finishes.

The Super 10 symbol activates the exciting “Super 10 Mini-Slot” which delivers very interesting wins as well as instant free spins, multipliers or the “Roulette Frenzy” win.

The Super 7 stars symbol appears on the central reel and expands, remaining fixed and launching a Respin of the other reels.

The Super 5 stars symbols multiplies the bet up to x200 and the “Roulette Bonus” delivers mouth-watering wins. The players will also be able to enjoy free spins after the appearance of the 3 bonus symbols. A comprehensive video slot which will keep players eager and attentive at all times.

Super 20 Stars is being released today, 29 July, although it was recently launched exclusively with various operators, so many players are already enjoying this fantastic slot game and generating great results for Red Rake Gaming partners. As with all our other slot games, it also works with the Red Rake Gaming tournament tool, to offer gamers even more excitement and gaming options.

Will you be following the Super series? We hope so. You’ll then be able to continue enjoying these slot games that have already become a firm favourite for so many players all over the world.

Play’n GO Return to Asgard with Odin: Protector of the Realms

Published

Play’n GO enter the world of Norse mythology once again with their latest game, Odin: Protector of the Realms. 

The game revolves around Norse God, Odin, who remains to protect Asgard from oncoming attacks while Thor and the other gods defend the Realm. Players must harness Odin’s magical powers to defeat Asgard’s enemies.

Like Honey Rush and Vortex, this epic cascading grid slot game sees a creative use of a hexagonal grid; players are encouraged to harness Odin’s power to increase the size of their win. With 37 symbols to match, this is all about the long game; however, collecting big clusters – thanks to the hexagonal design – to complete the grid is devised to create immediate player satisfaction.

Players can summon three of Odin’s powers: Power, Glory and Wisdom. Power will trigger the charge feature where two symbols are selected and destroyed. Glory can trigger several WILDs to the grid, while Wisdom sees Odin randomly upgrading the central symbol and its matching symbols within the grid.

Known for their attention to detail, Play’n GO encapsulates rich narratives and intricate artwork throughout this series of games for a super-immersive experience. In addition, power symbols ring true to Norse mythology with motifs such as Thor’s Hammer and Frithiof’s Angurvadal.

Fans of Play’n GO’s Viking mythology saga, which includes the popular titles Viking Runecraft and Faces of Freya, are in for a treat with this sequel to Ring of Odin. So, why are Viking-inspired games so popular? Head of Games, Charlotte Miliziano, had this to say:

“Mythology is one of our most popular themes as it casts the way for rich narratives and awe-inspiring artwork that our players just can’t get enough of; lighting, thunder, and magic – what’s not to love?”

Odin: Protector of the Realms is available to play online today.
