Pragmatic Play Slots usher in the Next Phase of Competitive iGaming
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

As the iGaming scene continues to welcome new jurisdictions, platforms, and developers to the game, existing brands have needed to look beyond the next release. With slot gaming being so popular, a lot of the focus has gone into improving the experience of these somewhat simplistic games.

For decades, progressive jackpots and such suites have been the most appealing to the eye, sporting banners of massive, ever-increasing prizes. The slots allow for a form of competitive online gaming within iGaming, but only in the sense that players recognise that others must be spinning elsewhere to keep the prize ticking up.

Now, a new platform is combining the appeal of competitive social play with the unrelenting popularity of Pragmatic Play slots, introducing a specialised gaming platform.

Making slot gaming competitive and social

Pragmatic Play, whose slots are well-known for their incredible designs and use of novel features, are helping to take competitive slot gaming to the next level, with their library of over 120 titles being utilised by the platform Social Tournaments. Through the website, players can enter into several ongoing free slot tournaments with real money prizes.

There are monthly, weekly, special, Golden Ticket and daily tournaments, with the most popular being the multi-stage weekly tournaments. While there are the leaderboard-type social tournaments, the weekly ones feature qualifiers and finals, heating the competition.

Being a free-to-use platform, the social tournaments are very accessible for slot gamers. The schedule clearly shows the type of competition, slot game of focus, prize pool, time remaining, and option to register for each tournament, making it easy to play slots with the additional perks of competitive play and the shot at one of the prize pool’s rewards.

The fact that the games all come from the inventive winner of the 2020 most responsible iGaming content provider in Europe award, ensures that those looking to compete can do so on top-class games. Some of the most popular from Pragmatic Play include The Hand of Midas, Aztec Bonanza, Dragon Kingdom: Eyes of Fire, Release the Kraken, and Drago: Jewels of Fortune.

The latest innovation in an ever-expanding industry

Developers and platforms in iGaming have recognised for a long time that thinking outside of the box is the best way to stand out in the crowded industry. Now, with the global online gambling market growing by 13.2 per cent from 2019 to 2020, it’s clear that there’s a massive market of diverse preferences that want more than the standardised online gambling experience.

iGaming creatives have been exploring how to further ‘gamify’ their titles, particularly slots, seeking to bring the immersive action of video games into the gambling genre. While video gaming has made waves by including real-money gambling in games, most notably via loot boxes, further gamifying casino titles isn’t as straight forward.

One of the standout factors of the video gaming industry is the immense popularity of online multiplayer modes and games. They offer players a huge pool of fellow players to compete against, offering a unique and fresh challenge every time they boot up the game. The Social Tournaments platform infuses this aspect into slot games, with each new competition giving all players the ability to beat others en route to the top prize.

Further enhancing the slot gaming experience, Social Tournaments marks the next phase of competitive iGaming.

ECA Postpones European Dealer Championship Until 2022
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

In light of the continued uncertainty regarding international travel and the viability of in-person events due to the ongoing pandemic, the Board of the European Casino Association (ECA) has announced the cancellation of this year’s European Dealer Championship (Monte-Carlo, October 4-8) and ECA Industry Forum (Vienna, November 31-December 3), with both events postponed until 2022.

While no fixed dates can be supplied at this time, the ECA assures members that the European Dealer Championship will return in April/May 2022, followed by the ECA Industry Forum in September/October 2022.

“Health and safety have always been our top priority and the continued uncertainty created by the pandemic makes the postponement of our in-person events the prudent decision. We needed to put down our foot and make this decision now considering the scale of these events and the efforts that are going into organizing and executing them. While we regret the cancellations this year, we look forward to the prospect of EU-wide vaccination programmes lifting current travel restrictions to enable us to reunite with our members in 2022,” ECA Chair Per Jaldung said.

“The ECA Dealer Championship brings together the best dealers from all over Europe in the spirit of healthy competition, while the Industry Forum is a special get-together for industry stakeholders, suppliers and researchers to celebrate the collaborative nature of this business. We believe these events will be more important than ever in 2022 as the industry rebounds from the pandemic and seeks to address the challenges of the ‘new’ future,” Hermann Pamminger, Secretary-General of ECA, said.
