Primorye Casino Projects Saw “Major Progress”
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

Officials in the Primorye gambling zone have been highlighting how projects are now pushing ahead and stressing there is no change in the long-term plans for 12 casino complexes.

Konstantin Shestakov, Deputy Prime Minister of Primorsky Territory, said that the development of the casino entertainment district in his part of the Russian far east made major progress in 2020 and is on a very positive trajectory.

The zone, whose development is being overseen by the Primorsky Krai Development Corp, has been slow to ramp up. The first resort, Summit Ascent’s Tigre de Cristal, opened its doors in 2015, while Shambhala, owned by a Russian businessman, followed last year.

A project by NagaCorp, which broke ground in 2016, ground to a halt in 2020 due to difficulties in bringing in Chinese contractors during the crisis. However, that has now restarted and the Cambodian-based company said it expects to complete the premises in 2022.

Push Gaming unleashes a stampede with Bison Battle
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

B2B gaming supplier Push Gaming whisks players off to the plains of North America to witness a clash of ferocious beasts in its new slot, Bison Battle.

Testament to Push’s reputation for being able to develop a diverse range of titles, Bison Battle comes hot on the heels of recent release Fire Hopper, upping the ante with an action-packed game style, as well as a theme inspired by a well-established land-based player favourite.

Set across the Great Plains, rowdy and raging Bisons butt heads in an eventful base game with Red Bison dictating when the wins drop. Their appearance can bring about an explosive Bison Clash that can grant instant prize coins and multipliers.

If a Green Bison meets a Red Bison, at least eight free spins and unlimited multipliers can be won against a backdrop of a beautiful green valley. When Red and Blue Bison square, play shifts to a chilling ice park where players begin with three free spins along with sticky instant prizes and multipliers.

Packed with features including Push’s popular recent addition Bonus Buy, it isn’t only the Bold Bison that roam the plains in the game as eagles, cougars and wolves also prowl the reels in a game design that boldly presents a Native American environment in a one-of-a-kind slot experience.

Commenting on the launch, James Marshall, CEO at Push Gaming said: “Our team has done a fine job with Bison Battle – they’ve had great fun putting together a game that is snappy and endlessly entertaining from the base game through to the second screen-features.

“Our Bonus Buy feature makes an appearance too, adding yet more options for players to enjoy the action. We’re really looking forward to seeing our fans challenge the battling bison!”

The release comes on the back of a hugely successful year for Push Gaming, having picked up crowns at the Casino Beats Game Developer Awards, Game of the Year at the 2021 SiGMA Europe Awards as well as multiple shortlist appearances at both the 2021 EGR and SBC Awards.

Established as one of the industry’s most entertaining suppliers, Push Gaming is live across Europe’s key regulated markets with Casumo, LeoVegas, Entain, The Rank Group, Betsson and PaddyPowerBetfair. Its growth roadmap will see entry into further global jurisdictions with its top-tier partners throughout 2022.

Yggdrasil and Peter & Sons enter the world of the demons in Xibalba
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Yggdrasil, the leading worldwide publisher of online gambling content, and Peter & Sons have unlocked the doors to the underworld in latest release Xibalba.

As the 12 demon lords of Xibalba gather, brave adventurers are greeted with an initial 5×3 reel set, with the height expanding with every winning spin. Each successful spin also increases a win multiplier by 1x, with winning combinations being removed in the classic ‘cascading’ style slot.

Wilds can also grow during the game, with them not being removed by cascades, but ensuring every symbol added to the reel above it is also a wild.

When two scatter symbols land on a single spin, the Gigantor feature is triggered. This sees a respin occur, with reels in which scatters have landed spinning in sync while displaying supersized symbols of up to 3×3 in size for massive wins.

Three or more scatters will see 15 free spins awarded, with an unlimited multiplier during cascades, without resetting every spin for huge win potential as the multiplier builds.

In certain jurisdictions, players can also buy free spins for a shortcut into extra win potential.

Xibalba is the newest slot from Peter & Sons to join the YG Masters portfolio, following Monster Blox Gigablox™. Xibalba is powered by GATI, with Yggdrasil’s state-of-the-art technology enabling partners to employ the preconfigured, regulation-ready, standardised development toolkit to produce consistently cutting-edge content followed by rapid distribution.

Stuart McCarthy, Head of Product and Programs at Yggdrasil, said: Xibalba marks another fantastic addition to our portfolio by Peter & Sons. With increasing ways to win, cascading symbols and a lucrative bonus round, it yet again highlights the strength of the studio as a member of the YG Masters program.

Yann Bautista, Business Development Manager at Peter & Sons, said: “We continue to churn out exciting new hits as part of the YG Masters initiative and Xibalba is one of our most exciting yet.

“Uniting our unique art style with huge win potential and a dynamic reel set, we’re extremely pleased to release this game across Yggdrasil’s network and look forward to seeing how our fans react.”

Macau’s Draft Gaming Bill Outlines Tighter Control of Casinos, Junkets

Published

Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Macau’s Legislative Assembly has published the draft of a highly anticipated gaming bill on Tuesday that gave details on the Chinese territory’s goal of tightening its grip on casino firms and reining in so-called junket operators.

The proposed changes, which need legislators’ approval to become law, mark the biggest reform in two decades for the world’s biggest gambling hub in terms of money wagered and lay the ground for multibillion-dollar casino operators ahead of the expiration of their licenses this year.

The 44-page draft document – published in Chinese and Portuguese – comes after the government announced on Friday that the number of new licenses would be capped at six and the license term halved to 10 years.

The licences of the six operators, Wynn Macau, Sands China, MGM China, SJM Holdings, Galaxy Entertainment and Melco Resorts, are all due to expire in June. The government said all existing or potential operators need to apply through a new tender process.

The draft bill aimed to provide clarity on the role of the junket operators, middlemen tasked with bringing in high-rollers from mainland China. If approved, casino operators would no longer have dedicated junket rooms, and revenue-sharing arrangements between the two parties would be prohibited.

Macau will continue to issue junket licenses to approved VIP promoters but will restrict them to only operating in one concessionaire. Previously, Macau junkets were allowed to operate in all operators with multiple rooms. This is likely to further dilute their influence.

While a proposal for a government official to directly supervise the casinos was dropped after feedback from the operators, casinos will be subject to a review every three years when the city’s gaming regulator will examine their “contractual compliance in general”.

Each license holder will have a 30% cap on the number of shares that can be publicly listed while any major financial transactions must be communicated to authorities. The government said it has the right to terminate a casino’s contract for reasons including public interest or breaching its obligations.

Casino operators will have to draw up a plan to promote responsible gambling, while there will be a maximum number of gaming tables and machines each license holder will be allowed to operate, according to the bill.

The draft detailed what would be expected of new licensees, including support for local small- and medium-sized companies, activities of “public interest” and support for fields including science and the environment.
