Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

The Company receives a Gold Award in the “Best Team Building Program” category for strengthening employee collaboration and a Silver Award in the “Most Valued HR Team” category for its fast response to Covid-19.

INTRALOT announces two prestigious distinctions in the categories “Learning & Development” and “Covid-19 Response Actions” at the HR Awards 2020 ceremony held on October 14th, as a recognition for its Human Resources initiatives and practices.

INTRALOT’s Human Resources team won the Gold Award in the category “Learning & Development: Best Team Building Program” for the design and implementation of the Hackathon initiative, aiming to bring closer its people from around the world. During the internal Hackathon competition, employees participated in brainstorming discussions, worked together to generate innovative ideas, had fun, and shared an amazing experience, strengthening INTRALOT’s culture of collaboration.

INTRALOT HR Department also received a Silver Award in the new category “Covid-19 Response Actions: Most Valuable HR Team”, for its immediate response and plan since the beginning of the pandemic. The main goal was the protection of our employees’ health and the prompt implementation of all measures to address the pandemic, ensuring business continuity at a Group level.

“INTRALOT’s human capital is the most valuable asset of the Company. We are proud of our employees and the culture they have established in our Company. For this reason, the Company’s first priority was the protection of our employees even before the spread of Covid-19 reached the levels of a pandemic. INTRALOT Hackathon competitions were introduced approximately nine years ago, gradually evolving to their present form. These competitions are very important as they aim to increase the levels of innovation in the day-to-day conduct of the employees. I would like to congratulate our HR Department for adopting world-class practices and thank all of our employees for their creativity and commitment to INTRALOT,” said Dr. Chris Dimitriadis, INTRALOT Group CEO.

“The Hackathon initiative created a valuable legacy for our Company, providing us with innovative state-of-the-art technology, while enhancing the team spirit and strengthening the bonds of INTRALOT’s global family. Moreover, towards Covid-19 response actions, our primary goal was to establish a direct and continuous communication with our people by implementing a program focused on online training, connection and communication, and their well-being,” said Mr. Eddy Gerekos, HR Director of the INTRALOT Group.

The HR Awards are organized for the 6th consecutive year by the HR Professional magazine and Boussias Communications, aiming to recognize the best initiatives and practices in the Human Resources sector in our country.

BINGOTON: PADDY POWER PRESENTS A DRAMA…WITH BALLS

Published

Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Mischievous betting brand Paddy Power presents an eyebrow raising ‘drama with balls’ after teaming up with creative agency Octagon for their latest ad campaign. 

“Bingoton” was formally rolled out in a fashion befitting the brand’s proverbial bingo debutante today (23rd September).  

Written and art directed by Jonny Watson, Dan Harrison and Neil Richardson of Octagon UK, and directed by Jim Gilchrist of Outsider, the 30-second TVC will get its first showing on ITV this evening during Coronation Street.  

The commercial takes viewers back to the early 19th century, with Miss Bingoton and her lady-in-waiting assessing a selection of ‘gentlemen callers’, cleverly creating a humorous parallel with the perils of modern-day dating.  

According to Josh Green, Executive Director at Octagon, this was the ideal comical conduit to convey the Paddy Power Bingoproposition:  

“In the simplest terms, bingo is drama with balls. That’s how the idea of Bingoton was born.” 

Tom Muldowney, Head of Gaming Marketing with Paddy Power adds:   

“We wanted to make a ballsy ad and Miss Bingoton felt like the perfect leading lady to convey our ‘more chances’ message. That’s with the exception of the Suitor who sent her (Charles) Dickens pix. He remains on the cutting room floor.”    

The advert opens with stunning views of high society types gathering at the palatial grounds of Bingoton Manor. Centre stage is Miss Bingoton, who is joined by her lady-in-waiting and Master of Ceremonies, all of whom eagerly anticipate a parade of potential suitors for her viewing pleasure.   

Suitor Number 10 gets the (bingo) balls rolling. But he’s quickly dismissed by Miss Bingoton who instructs her footmen to “swipe left” on her behalf.   

  Suitor Number 3 is quickly dispatched in an equally decisive manner, having been judged by Miss B to be “catfishing again” after she takes in his dated and unrecognizable profile painting.  

Trying his luck next is Suitor Number 66, a handsome gentleman from Essex who only has eyes for his own reflection.   

“The only way is EXIT,” she giggles under her breath to her lady-in-waiting.  

Paddy Power’s latest campaign comes with all the easter eggs punters have come to expect from the mischievous brand, who manages to marry drama (and balls) to make it a perfect match.

Turbo Mode in the Game ‘Mines’ is On – Fasten the Seat Belts

Published

Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

Classics are eternal, but classics with new improvements are captivating. One of the first
Turbo games has undergone visual and functional changes and has transformed into one
more game Turbo Mines.

The Head of Product at Turbo Games says:

“Visually, this is the successor to the super hit of our classic Mines. We are a young
progressive team that improves our product regularly, but not just observes what works
well. There is no limit to perfection, especially when you can change quickly and
qualitatively to open an even wider potential of Turbo hit.”

What does it mean for the players?

The rules remain the same as in Mines, but some additional features modify the perception
of the interface and the game pace.

Firstly, it is possible to change the game field size: to 3*3, 5*5, 7*7, and 9*9. Such
modification gives a player a chance to work on their strategy and choose the risk rate. So
to say, every round can be absolutely different from all points of view.

Secondly, those players who enjoy speed can experience it in Turbo Mines too. Such a
function enables a player to choose the same pattern for opening the blocks for many
rounds in a row. If a player sticks to the strategy that they believe in, they will win for sure
because dripping water wears away a stone not with its strength but with its constancy.
But there is no need to wait, do it in Turbo mode with Turbo Mines.
