Scientific Games Launches Eagerly Anticipated New iGaming Slot Invaders Megaways™
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Scientific Games Corporation has gone live with its flagship 2021 iGaming release Invaders Megaways™, a highly polished space-themed title with a feature on every spin and a unique Uni-Cow experience.

The summer’s red-hot slot has launched exclusively with 888casino and will go on general release through Scientific Games’ OpenGaming™ platform from June 15.

With a retro style that takes inspiration from the Company’s much-loved Invaders from the Planet Moolah slot, the attractive new game incorporates the popular Megaways™ mechanic in a unique way and comes complete with a rich features set.

The 6-reel slot is boosted by a unique feature, with a UFO landing on each spin to select a random symbol to turn wild when landing on reels 2 to 5. When a player hits four or more scatter symbols to win free spins, a random picture symbol is selected to act as a wild for the entire round. Each has its own modifier, ranging from expanding wilds to increased Megaways™.

Players are also faced with the tantalising prospect of the Uni-Cow making an appearance in the base game. This results in all reels showing between 7 and 10 symbols, resulting in up to 1,000,000 Megaways™ and other-worldly win potential.

Innovative mechanics are paired with a front end that hits new heights in terms of its attractive design and attention to detail, with the space-age soundtrack adding to the appeal of a slot the comes with responsible gaming tools to ensure a safe and immersive experience.

The release of Invaders Megaways™ adds to the Company’s portfolio of games incorporating the mechanic and sets new standards in terms of presentation, with Jin Ji Bao Xi the next popular title to receive the Megaways™ treatment in July.

Talya Benyamini, VP B2C Casino at 888, said: “Our customers enjoy having access to exclusive games on our platform, and it has been great to offer the opportunity to experience the excitement that comes from playing Invaders Megaways™. We have a really strong relationship with Scientific Games, and this game is another example of bringing high quality content to our players.”

Rob Procter, Content Specialist Director, Digital at Scientific Games, said: “While a new Megaways™ release is guaranteed to cause a buzz, in the case of Invaders Megaways™ we have set new standards in terms of both presentation and gameplay to produce a fresh, exciting new playing experience.

“Having a feature on every spin in the base game adds variety and appeal and we are proud of developing a game that looks as good as this does while also making the very most of the Megaways™ mechanic. The Uni-Cow feature also adds a whole new level of appeal and we can’t wait to see player reactions when it drops.”

With over 40 integrated payment methods, we can significantly reduce the risk of a player abandoning the cashier across all N1 Interactive’s live brands.”

The ACMA has requested that Australian internet service providers (ISPs) block more illegal offshore gambling and affiliate marketing websites.

The sites include Casino Moons, Winnerama, Extra Vegas, Win Paradise, LegitGamblingSites and Gamblers Lab.

The ACMA investigated and found these services to be operating in breach of the Interactive Gambling Act 2001.

Website blocking is one of a range of enforcement options to protect Australians against illegal online gambling. Since the ACMA made its first blocking request in November 2019, 568 illegal gambling and affiliate websites have been blocked.

Over 170 illegal services have also pulled out of the Australian market since the ACMA started enforcing new illegal offshore gambling rules in 2017.

Entain to Pay £17M Penalty for Online and Retail Failures

Entain, the global sports betting, gaming and interactive entertainment Group, has confirmed that it has agreed a regulatory settlement with the UK Gambling Commission (UKGC) in respect of alleged historical licensing breaches. The regulatory settlement amounts to £14m in respect of Entain’s digital business and £3m in respect of its retail business.

Entain has entered into the regulatory settlement with the UKGC in order to bring the matter to a close and avoid further costly and protracted legal proceedings. Entain accepts that certain legacy systems and processes supporting the operations of its British business during 2019 and 2020 were not in line with the evolving regulatory expectations of the UKGC in respect to aspects of social responsibility and anti-money laundering (AML) safeguards. However, the Group also notes the UKGC’s statement that it found no evidence whatsoever of criminal spend within Entain’s operations.

The issues raised by the Commission relate to the period between December 2019 and October 2020, which predates the many changes in the area of safer gambling and AML that Entain has introduced. For instance, in 2021 Entain launched its Advanced Responsibility and Care (ARC) programme which, using revolutionary AI technology, operates in real-time and is individually tailored for each customer. The initial trials of ARC in the UK have shown a risk assessment accuracy of over 80%, a 120% uplift in the use of safer gambling tools by those most at risk and a 30% overall reduction in customers increasing their risk levels.

Furthermore, in May of this year, Entain was awarded the Advanced Safer Gambling Standard by GamCare, having evidenced the highest standards of player protection and social responsibility for its online and land-based gambling businesses in Great Britain.

As part of the settlement, Entain has also agreed to appoint a Board sponsor to oversee the implementation of any further improvements identified by the original 2020 compliance assessments and to undertake an independent audit of the relevant policies and procedures at a future date.
