Reading Time: 2 minutes


Last week’s Cheltenham Festival was highly anticipated to generate strong betting volumes, and figures from Scientific Games’ OpenSports™ platform demonstrate the huge scale of betting activity from the prestigious race meeting.

Record-breaking volumes of bets were processed through the Company’s OpenSports platform across the Cheltenham Festival, with an increase of more than 50% compared to 2020.

The four-day racing spectacular took place behind closed doors due to Covid-19 restrictions and attracted extremely strong levels of betting activity. This was driven by a demand from bettors for entertaining experiences within these challenging times, as well as a surge of punters turning to the online channel with betting shops shut across many regions in Europe.

The OpenSports platform powers the industry’s leading sportsbook operators, including Flutter Entertainment’s Betfair, Paddy Power and Sky Bet, William Hill, as well as Entain brands Ladbrokes and Coral. With 100% platform stability recorded throughout the event, Scientific Games’ key operating partners enjoyed increased betting levels and offered their customers responsible, seamless user experiences.

Compared to the 2020 event, Scientific Games reports the following across OpenSports:

  • 100% platform stability across the whole Festival
  • Total bets of close to 70m placed across the U.K.’s leading sportsbook operators, an increase of over 50% on last year
  • Total stakes across the festival were up 34% with average stake for singles in all Win & Each Way markets remaining largely consistent per last year at £7.50
  • Total account transactions at 470m across the four days were up 44% as compared to last year
  • One OpenSports partner operator alone processed a peak of over 34,000 bets per minute

Keith O’Loughlin, SVP Sportsbook, Scientific Games Digital, said: “These figures further demonstrate the power of our platform, with its scalability and reliability once again delivering high-level performance across one of the biggest sporting events. Despite the significant increase in activity, it was very much business as usual as our team and technology coped under the huge demand from bettors.  Our job is to give our operator partners the confidence that they can deliver a great service and grow their business without the worry of system downtime.

“This year’s Festival saw betting behaviour evolve and more players than ever before embrace the online space. The average stake levels indicate the recreational and entertainment value of this racing event and we’re proud of the role OpenSports has played during the Festival in offering such a wide audience a truly entertaining experience.”

Reading Time: < 1 minute


PG Soft, a world-class digital mobile games company, is on target again with its latest fun-filled game release, Piñata Wins.

Set against a vibrant fiesta backdrop, Piñata Wins is a five-reel and three-row title offering players a colourful gaming experience with plenty of features with an opportunity to make big returns from multipliers up to x100. The reels are brought to life with symbols that celebrate Mexican culture including tacos, maracas, skulls, sombreros and chillies.

A glamorous lady acts as the wild symbol and will substitute for all symbols aside from the scatter. A multi-coloured star represents the scatter symbol and three of these will launch a round of 15 free spins. Each additional scatter will increase the spins counter by two. The Gold Framed symbols also boost winning chances when they appear on reels two, three and four.

For each new round, Gold Framed symbols previously on the screen will turn into wild symbols once the new symbols have cascaded down. These Gold Framed symbols have the power to display multipliers ranging from x2 to x100. Multipliers accumulate during the game to help players potentially hit a huge total at the end of each spin.

Players wishing to boost win chances can break into free spins feature using the Feature Buy button.

“Colourful piñatas are a symbol of pure joy and our studio has encapsulated that feeling perfectly in our Piñata Wins game,” a PG Soft spokesperson said. “This entertaining game promises plenty on the reels for players looking to strike it rich.”
