Nyjah Huston Goes for Gold with Play'n GO
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

Play’n GO have teamed up with global skateboard superstar Nyjah Huston and 5th Planet Games to launch their latest slot title Nyjah Huston – Skate for Gold.

Widely considered one of the most successful skateboarding athletes ever, Nyjah Huston is a 6-time World Skateboarding Champion, and the slot celebrates his talent on a board.

Skateboarding has become an increasingly popular sport over the years and will be introduced into the 2021 Olympics, a testament to the level of competition and skill that it has reached. The game aims to capture its more traditional skate park roots and is highly stylised, replicating the colourful, artistic graffiti style that has become synonymous with skateboarding for decades.

The slot brings the skill and excitement of pulling off combos onto the reels with some exciting new features, and these are the game’s crowning achievements. Both features, SKATE and Wildboard, challenge players to complete combos with Nyjah’s game symbols, which will release an animated Nyjah onto the grid as he kicks and flips across the reels, leaving a trail of Wilds in his wake.

This slot marks a first-time collaboration with a major athlete for Play’n GO, and is a combination not often seen in the slot arena.

Play’n GO CEO Johan Törnqvist spoke about the collaboration and unique nature of this latest slot

“We knew we wanted to work with the best when creating this game and Nyjah represents that.

This is a theme very rarely explored in the world of slots, and it certainly hasn’t been approached from this angle before. But that’s a part of our commitment to bringing new gaming experiences to players, and new audiences to slot gaming.”

Nyjah Huston – Skate for Gold is now available to play online, try it today!

AGTech Announces Interim Results For The Six Months Ended June 30, 2020
Reading Time: 3 minutes

 

AGTech Holdings Limited, a leading integrated lottery, games and entertainment technology company in China, announced the interim results for the six months ended June 30, 2020.

According to MOF figures, during the Six-Month Period, lottery market recorded sales of approximately RMB123.9 billion, a decrease of approximately 41.7% compared to the corresponding period in 2019. Other than the closure of national lottery market during Chinese Lunar New Year, the drop in sales was mainly due to the impact of Novel Coronavirus (“COVID-19”) outbreak while the business hours of lottery sales outlets were significantly reduced. Lottery sales activities have since resumed in March 2020, and the Group will continue to closely monitor the latest development and recovery post pandemic.

AGTech’s Hardware division primarily supplies the Sports Lottery and the Welfare Lottery and has hardware deployed in multiple provinces, cities, municipalities and autonomous regions across China. During the Six-Month Period under review, the Group won five lottery hardware tenders to supply lottery terminals to the SLACs in Anhui province, Shanxi province, Jilin province, Hubei province and Guizhou province of the PRC. The Group will continue to pursue tenders to supply to the lottery and other hardware market and bid for new contracts after resumption of tenders post COVID-19 delays.

Transition to new retail models presents a great opportunity for the further development of the Group’s hardware business. Many of the hardware supplies required under such new retail concept share similar technology and components that underlie the lottery hardware products supplied by the Group throughout the years. We believe our hardware division continues to be well positioned to take advantage of such opportunities in the foreseeable future.

The Group continues to operate the lottery channel on mobile Taobao and mobile Alipay to serve as a one-stop platform on lottery related information for existing and potential customers. With the recent addition of sporting content and sports intelligence services to our lottery channel, we expect to roll out further engagement features and tools to improve user experience and engagement.

From a lottery products point of view, we have identified instant scratch lottery games to be an important product initiative for the coming year, as we will be dedicating resources to open up this market within the lottery sector.

FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS

Revenue of the Group for the Six-Month Period amounted to approximately HK$43.9 million, representing a decrease of approximately 8.0% over the corresponding period in 2019. Revenue contributions were mainly derived from lottery hardware, lottery games and systems, provision of lottery distribution and ancillary services, games and entertainment business in the PRC.
The decrease in revenue for the Six-Month Period was primarily caused by the decrease in sales of lottery hardware of approximately HK$6.6 million and decrease of approximately HK$1.0 million in revenue from games and entertainment division, partially offset by an increase of approximately HK$4.6 million from the lottery games and systems.
The decrease in revenue from hardware business was due to slower tendering processes and hardware deliveries in several provinces as compared to the corresponding period in 2019 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.The increase in revenue from the lottery games and systems was caused by the increase in sales volume from the virtual sports lottery games in the second quarter of 2020 after the reopening of PRC lottery market.
Operating loss for the Six-Month Period was approximately HK$105.6 million, representing a decrease of approximately 12.1% over the corresponding period in 2019.
