GamCare: Free Training Taster Sessions for Safer Gambling Week
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

GamCare is offering free online training and briefing sessions for businesses during Safer Gambling Week, raising awareness of the risks associated with gambling, the tools available to keep people safe, and where to find help and support if gambling becomes an issue.

Safer Gambling Week is a cross-industry initiative to promote safer gambling in the United Kingdom and Ireland, taking place 19th – 25th November this year. The key objectives of Safer Gambling Week are to stimulate conversation about safer gambling and raise awareness of:

  • how to gamble more safely, and the tools that are available to help people do this
  • sources of more advice and support if people are concerned about gambling

According to a Reed in Partnership report (2016), up to 10% of working adults have experience of problems gambling can cause in the workplace, including loss of concentration, low productivity and absence, criminal activity (including theft and fraud) and impacts on mental wellbeing.

As many employees are currently working from home, or may have been furloughed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, financial worries, isolation and boredom are increased risk factors if someone may be struggling to control their gambling.

For Safer Gambling Week this year, recognising the impact that COVID-19 has had for many, GamCare is able to offer briefing sessions online during the week, helping businesses understand how gambling could affect their teams, how to start conversations about gambling and signpost to appropriate tools and support to prevent gambling harms.

GamCare also offers bespoke training throughout the year to give a holistic view of how gambling harms can impact specific groups, including women, young people and those in contact with the criminal justice system.

Online slot developer Stakelogic has entered into the Estonian market with its new operator partner Optibet.

Players at Optibet in Estonia can now access Stakelogic’s biggest hits including Book of Cleopatra Super Stake, Book of Adventure Super Stake, Book of Anubis, Dragons and Magic, Black Gold Megaways and many more.

“We are excited to have entered the Baltic market with a prestigious operator partner, Optibet. Our slots have taken the industry by storm over the past 12 months and we believe they will prove to be just as popular in the Baltics. Optibet has already achieved great things and is one of the largest gambling brands in the market. The addition of our slot games means that it will be able to further distance itself from its rivals and deliver the best experience to players,” Salvatore Marino, Sales Director of Stakelogic, said.

“Integrating Stakelogic’s suite of games is a major coup for Optibet as its slots are in high demand among players in the country right now. To be the first to offer them marks us out as a true leader in the market,” Chris Davis, Chief Product Officer at Optibet, said.

Caesars and Mohegan Face Delays in Korean IR Projects

Caesars and Mohegan Face Delays in Korean IR Projects
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

Caesars Entertainment Corp and Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment are facing significant delays in their Korean integrated resort projects due to the financing concerns caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to South Korean news outlets, Caesars Korea – part of the expansive project called Midan City in Yeongjong Island – and Mohegan’s Inspire are having trouble securing the final capital needed to complete their projects.

The future of Caesars Korea has been in some doubt over the past year following the merger between Caesars Entertainment Corp and Eldorado Resorts, with Eldorado CEO Tom Reeg – now CEO of the merged Caesars entity – stating in June 2019 that the company’s international expansion opportunity would “have to be stupendous for us to be running in that direction.”

The company subsequently stated in August 2019 that it was capping the amount of additional cash it was willing to directly invest into Caesars Korea at US$60 million – having already contributed US$80 million to the US$700 million project – with the remainder to be provided by outside financing. However, the company has spoken little publicly about its Korea project since the US$17.3 billion merger with Eldorado was completed in June of this year.

Mohegan Gaming CEO Mario Kontomerkos stated as recently as July that his company’s Inspire Korea project remained on track for a 2022 launch, adding that Mohegan remained fully committed to its international expansion efforts.

“The pandemic has shown us that diversification into the international arena is important for our ability to stand for those generations, and so the project in South Korea, called Inspire, remains on track for launch in 2022,” he said.

Yggdrasil releases its new title Hades with unique Gigablox ™ mechanic
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

Yggdrasil, the leading worldwide publisher of online gambling content, has unlocked the doors to the underworld in its latest Gigablox™ title, Hades.

Featuring Yggdrasil’s unique mechanic, the 6×6 reel can see a Gigablox™ land on any spin with any symbol transforming into giant blocks that lead to big wins.

Set in the ghoulish underworld realm of the King of the Dead, Hades is packed with devilish delights, including the Wild Hunt feature, which sees the Lord of the Underworld dive into the reels turning symbols into wilds for even more opportunity to claim big prizes.

To trigger the Free Spins mode, players need to find five or more scatter symbols, with the biggest Gigablox™ symbols bringing up to 16 scatters in one go. Every spin triggers the Wild Hunt while Hades will also battle all high symbols. The more battles are won, the more the Cerberus Multiplier will increase, with up to 10x multiplier values available throughout the Bonus Feature.

Hades Gigablox™ is the second title utilising Yggdrasil’s unique new mechanic after player-favourite Lucky Neko, and joins the provider’s recent release Hyperburst among its growing proprietary slot offering. Yggdrasil’s portfolio is also complemented by titles from the burgeoning YG Masters program.

Jonas Strandman, Senior Games Strategist at Yggdrasil, said: “We’re delighted to launch our latest Gigablox™ title, Hades, as we invite players to enter the King of the Underworld’s realm and escape with the riches below.

“Our commitment to innovation has seen us develop a number of new mechanics this year and Gigablox™ turns every spin into one with huge win potential, appealing to all player types. The mechanic has already been a huge hit with players and we are thrilled to launch this second Gigablox™ title with its dark theme, fantastic graphics and engaging features.”
