Announcing the very first of its kind external trademark deal, Nolimit City is proud to reveal the distribution of its proprietary mechanics, xWays® and xNudge®, now being made available to EveryMatrix’s own inhouse games hub, Spearhead Studios.

The deal will see Nolimit’s IP represented on a new game published by Spearhead Studios, aiming to showcase both mechanics combined in one action packed slot game, slated for October this year.

Mathias Larsson, Managing Director of Spearhead Studios, comments: “Both xWays and xNudge concepts are fantastic features that bring out a new level of exciting game play. We’ll be combining these two mechanics with a classic “Book” game, and we are certain this will turn into our flagship game of the year.”

The xWays® mechanic, known for increasing the reel set thanks to landing one or several xWays symbols, increases the amount of total ways in the entire reel set with every symbol expansion. xNudge® is a nudging-wild with increasing win multiplier with every nudge. Both mechanics combined can whip up monumental wins and will make room for some incredible gameplay.

Malcolm Mizzi, Commercial Director at Nolimit City, says: “We’re over the moon with this announcement. This partnership has solidified the impact that our inhouse trademarked mechanics have in the industry and we’re immensely proud of the achievement. Having an ambitious upcoming studio like Spearhead represent our xNudge® and xWays® mechanics, breaths room for more innovation and unique twists on the two combined! We’re eager to witness what others have in store for them.”

TABCORP ORDERED TO PAY $30,000 FOR ADVERTISING BREACH

Tabcorp CEO David Attenborough to Step Down

Gambling giant Tabcorp has been convicted and ordered to pay $30,000 in fines and costs for publishing an inducement to gamble or open a betting account on Instagram.

The penalty was handed down in Sydney’s Downing Centre Local Court on 25 November after Tabcorp pleaded guilty to breaching NSW gambling laws.

On 14 December 2019, a former Tabcorp betting account holder received a gambling advertisement offering bonus bets from Tabcorp on his Instagram account via Instagram Stories.

Further investigations by Liquor & Gaming NSW revealed that Tabcorp had run an advertising campaign on 13 and 14 December via Instagram Stories to Tabcorp account holders.

However, details of 900 NSW residents who had closed their Tabcorp accounts had also been provided to Instagram’s parent company Facebook for the advertising campaign.

Under the NSW Betting and Racing Act, it is illegal to publish gambling advertisements that includes any inducement to participate in gambling or open a betting account.

The company said the details of 900 people had been included as a result of inadvertent human error.

In her judgment, Magistrate Erin Kennedy said she considered that some of the 900 may have closed their Tabcorp accounts because they had a gambling problem and these people should not have been exposed to these advertisements.

Magistrate Kennedy further stated that Tabcorp’s compliance history did not assist it and that the conviction should serve as a general deterrent but also a specific deterrent to ensure Tabcorp complies with the legislation.

Tabcorp was convicted, fined $18,000 and ordered to pay $12,276 in legal fees.
