FIVE casinos have faced enforcement action following Gambling Commission assessments of their businesses.

All of the casinos were found to have failed to follow social responsibility and anti-money laundering rules set by the Commission and therefore the Commission put their operating licences under review.

Clockfair Limited and Shaftesbury Casino Limited will both pay a £260,000 regulatory settlement, Les Croupiers Casino Limited will pay a £202,500 regulatory settlement, Double Diamond Gaming Limited will pay a £247,000 regulatory settlement, and A&S Leisure Group Limited will receive a warning and pay a £377,340 fine.

Richard Watson, Commission Executive Director, said: “These failings were identified as part of our ongoing drive to raise standards across the whole gambling industry. Every single operator must ensure they are following rules that are in place to make gambling safer and prevent it being a source of crime.”

PRAGMATIC PLAY PROMISES UNTOLD RICHES IN STAR PIRATES CODE™
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Pragmatic Play, a leading content provider to the iGaming industry, is calling for players to walk the plank in its riveting pirate-inspired release, Star Pirates Code.

Here, players will need to rely on their navigation skills to find their way to a bounty full of gold, and thanks to the skull multipliers, will also be able to unlock a treasure trove of wins and big prizes along the way!

The base game is played out in a coastal environment with waves crashing and lanterns glowing behind the reels. The four low-paying symbols are represented by purple, green, red and blue coloured gems, with premium symbols arriving in the form of treasure chests, silver and gold coins.

The Compass Wild feature is a mechanic that populates reels in one random direction with Wilds, and whenever a compass symbol lands, the re-Spin feature is triggered, awarding players 1 re-spin.

Multiplier values on Wilds are applied to each win that they are part of, and when no Wilds are landed, the re-spins feature session ends, returning players to the base game.

The mechanics in Star Pirates Code™ mean it should be easy to understand for various player types, making it a game with mass market appeal. The action becomes compelling during the re-spin feature and the graphics shown during a winning combination are highly engaging to players.

Star Pirates Codearrives swiftly after Mexican-themed Day of Dead™, and recent hits Cash Bonanza™, and Mystic Chief, joining a collection of more than 200 HTML5 titles in Pragmatic Play’s award-winning games portfolio.

Julian Jarvis, Chief Executive Officer at Pragmatic Play, said: “We are very satisfied with how Star Pirates Codehas materialised, bringing an exciting new theme together with our time-tested mechanics.

“We’re eager to see how our audiences receive the pirate-themed adventure, made all the more sweet by the incredible prizes that are on offer.”

Pragmatic Play currently produces up to five new slot titles a month, while also delivering Live Casino and Bingo games as part of its multi-product portfolio, available through one single API.

Ninjas in Pyjamas wins Red Bull Home Ground open qualifier to earn a place in the Finals against the biggest VALORANT teams

Ninjas in Pyjamas wins Red Bull Home Ground open qualifier to earn a place in the Finals against the biggest VALORANT teams
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Ninjas in Pyjamas mount a thrilling comeback to emerge victorious in the Red Bull Home Ground open qualifier final and seal a place at the pro VALORANT invitational in London, November 4th-7th.

Battling through a field of 64 teams across three intense days of competition, the open qualifiers culminated in an epic Thursday night showdown between London United and Ninjas in Pyjamas, with the Stockholm-based team scraping a hard-won victory that seals a place in the star-studded Red Bull Home Ground Finals.

Streamed on The Goose House’s Twitch channel and casted by Ryan “RyanCentral” Horton and Vincent “Zescht” Talmon-Gros, the Final proved a gruelling series. London United scooped the first match, before a resurgent NIP returned the favour to set up a climactic deciding third round.

Going to the wire in the best-of-three clash, fans also got to see new map Fracture in competitive action for one of the first ever times. With the stakes high and tensions higher, it was nearly impossible to separate the two teams during the early clashes in the third round, before Ninjas in Pyjamas eventually pulled away to earn an incredible comeback win, and secure a place at Red Bull Home Ground against the very best VALORANT teams in November.

Cementing the final spot for Red Bull Home Ground, Ninjas in Pyjamas completes the sixteen-team lineup that features many of the biggest VALORANT teams, including G2, Team Liquid, Gambit and Na’Vi.

 

The full lineup for Red Bull Home Ground is as follows:

  • G2 Esports
  • Team Liquid
  • Vodafone GIANTS
  • Tenstar
  • Acend
  • Futbolist
  • Fnatic
  • Supermassive
  • Heretics
  • Anubis
  • FPX
  • Gambit
  • BIG CLAN
  • BDS
  • Na’Vi
  • Ninjas in Pyjamas

Speaking about the team’s win, Ninjas in Pyjamas VALORANT Head Coach Emil “eMIL” Sandgren said: “The qualifier was tougher than expected, with a lot of underrated teams that deserve a lot of credit. That being said, we are happy to go through and will have to bring our A-game for the main event”

Red Bull Home Ground pitches teams in a riveting best of five battle, with the first two opening matches on each team’s chosen ‘home ground’. Added pressure is put on these opening home and away rounds, rewarding teams that can make the most of their home advantage and turn the tables on their opponent’s chosen map. If a team wins these two opening rounds they automatically win the tie, while a stalemate will then default to a best of five format.

The competition pioneers a unique Home & Away structure that delivers an exciting twist to the normal VALORANT format, placing an even greater emphasis on map knowledge and strategy and a new layer of unpredictability to map picks.

Making the competition even more of a spectacle, renowned VALORANT host Yinsu Collins will be leading a lineup of talented broadcast pros bringing the Red Bull Home Ground experience to life throughout the London Finals.

Yinsu will be joined by two iconic pairs of casters, with Lauren “Pansy” Scott and Michael “hypoc” Robins teaming up once again to reignite their rapport after the VALORANT Champions Tour Stage 3 Masters in September, while Mitch “MitchMan” McBride and Tom “Tombizz” Bissmire will pair up to and lend their charismatic expertise.
