Leeds United Foundation Teams Up with YGAM
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Leeds United Foundation has partnered with Young Gamers and Gamblers Education Trust (YGAM) to educate and safeguard young people from gaming and gambling-related harm.

The Education Team at the club’s official charity aims to help teach and inform young people, teachers and parents about the risks associated with gaming and gambling harms, to safeguard the next generation of football and sports fans.

“Gambling is often described as the hidden addiction and education is essential in preventing harm. People do not realise the correlation between gambling and other risky behaviours. It is vital that we raise awareness of gambling to try and bring it to the forefront and open those positive conversations. Sports foundations like Leeds United’s have a very positive, strong influence on young people, and they also have a huge influence within the local community,” Amy Bussey, YGAMs’ Education Manager for Yorkshire and Humber, said.

“If we can get sports involved in prevention and education, we can work with young people before harm occurs. It has been a pleasure working with their really engaging team members, who have strong links to education. They are already making moves to cover gambling harm with young people and clearly have a passion for educating and safeguarding young people,” Amy Bussey added.

“The workshop provided by Amy from YGAM was very informative and educational and we can’t thank them enough for their support. I was astonished at some of the statistics mentioned and particularly the information relating to the gaming industry. I would highly recommend this training to any schools, community groups or others who work with young minds. I am pleased that the Foundation now has the knowledge to help deal with these issues and support young people and their families in our local community,” Nigel Thewlis, Head of Secondary Education at the Leeds United Foundation, said.

Booongo, the global content developer, has introduced a classic-themed casino game to its hugely popular Hold and Win portfolio with the release of 3 Coins.

The 3×3 slot features five paylines and combines the proven slot machine-inspired format with the increasingly popular Hold and Win mechanics to create a gameplay that will appeal to a wide audience.

Featuring familiar symbols such as Lucky 7s, Bars, Bells and X’s, only three lucky coins are required to land on the middle reel to trigger the bonus feature, where the symbols remain fixed in place for the duration of the mode.

Players are rewarded with four spins, with each new symbol appearance resetting the number of respins to four. Whenever a new symbol lands on the reels during the bonus round, the cash value of all bonus symbols is added to the total, including those already fixed in position.

Glistening diamond symbols may also randomly appear during the bonus feature and offer massive wins of up to 500x total bet.

The newest addition to Booongo’s ever-growing portfolio is the latest to incorporate the supplier’s upgraded UI/UX interface and high-quality gamification tools.

Yuriy Muratov, Head of Account Management and Business Development at Booongo, said: “3 Coins provides players with a classic slot experience with the added twist of Hold and Win mechanics to deliver an entertaining experience.

“The creation of 3 Coins brings another dimension to our thriving series of Hold and Win titles, ensuring fans of traditional gaming formats have an opportunity to enjoy the modern mechanics that are very popular in today’s marketplace.”
