Dig for oil with Black Gold™ 2 Megaways™ from Stakelogic
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

The oil tycoons are back in the second instalment of the developer’s hugely popular Megaways™ slot where players are tasked with digging for oil and plenty of big wins

The richest oil tycoons in the West are back in the second instalment of Stakelogic’s chart-topping slot, Black Gold™ Megaways™.

In Black Gold™ 2 Megaways™, players are once again tasked with digging for oil and riches as the Megaways™ reels cascade and deliver 117,649 ways to win with every spin.

Players must set up the rigs and use the dynamite to destroy all the lower symbols in this six-reel Megaways plus 7th Horizontal cascade video slot that has a bonus eighth reel that sits on top of the main reels.

When one of the Bonus Feature symbols lands in the central section of the bonus reel, one or more valves from the pipe that runs across the bottom of the reels opens and spits oil onto the main reels.

Any reel that is hit by the oil will receive the bonus indicated by the Bonus Feature symbol that landed in the reel that sits at the top of the game window.

Features include:

  • Random Wilds
  • Multiplier Wilds
  • Stacked Wilds
  • Destroyer
  • Free Spins
  • Mystery
  • Gold Rush

The chance to hit black gold doesn’t stop there – if four or more Scatter symbols land anywhere on the reels, the Free Spins bonus is triggered with a Multiplier active for the duration.

Players are then given the choice of how many Free Spins and the size of the starting Multiplier they would prefer. This includes:

  1. 12 free spins awarded, plus 3 extra spins for each additional Scatter in view, with a x1 Multiplier
  2. 8 free spins awarded, plus 2 extra spins for each additional Scatter in view, with a x5 Multiplier
  3. 5 free spins awarded, plus 1 extra spin for each additional Scatter in view, with a x10 Multiplier
  4. One of the above number of Free Spins and win Multiplier picked at random

During the feature, the win Multiplier increases 1x with every cascade and if three or more Scatters land, the bonus Retriggers.

While this in itself can make players rich beyond their wildest dreams, the Gold Rush Bonus is what separates the wealthiest oil tycoons from the others.

The feature triggers when four Bonus symbols land on the reels. It starts with three Respins which reset each time three Bonus symbols drop.

Bonus symbols have Multipliers that keep adding up until the end of the feature. While active, Special Bonuses can land on the bonus reel.

This includes The Gold Bonus where another Bonus symbol is added to the reels and the Extra Spin, which resets the number of Respins to four for the rest of the feature.

Black Gold™ 2 Megaways™ is hooked up to Stakelogic’s Super Stake™ feature, and players can also Buy the Bonus in the markets where it is permitted to do so.

Olga BajelaCCO at Stakelogic, said: “Black Gold™ Megaways™ took the market by storm and with the second instalment we have taken the gameplay to the next level.

“We have packed the game with features that will help players in their quest to find oil and secure their own riches, including Free Spins, Respins and Multipliers.

“This is a hugely exciting slot that offers plenty of ways to win with every spin – we think it has the potential to be even more popular than the original thanks to the thrilling gameplay.”

Published

Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Patrick Svensk, Chairman of the Board of Betsson AB (publ), has informed the Nomination Committee that he is resigning from Betsson’s Board of Directors and the assignment as Chairman with immediate effect. The Board has appointed Johan Lundberg, currently a member of Betsson’s Board, as the new Chairman.

Patrick Svensk has been a member of Betsson’s Board of Directors since 2005, and Chairman of the Board since 2017. The decision to resign from Betsson’s Board of Directors is based on the fact that the company’s major shareholders have stated that they no longer have full confidence in Patrick Svensk as Chairman of the Board. The lack of full trust is due to how the dismissal of the CEO was handled, which the company communicated in a press release on September 17, 2021.

“It is very sad, and I am sorry that I have disappointed our major owners, but I have done what I thought was best for the company. I am proud of what we have achieved during these years and wish everyone at Betsson great luck in the future,” Patrick Svensk said.

Johan Lundberg, who has been appointed as new Chairman by the Board, has been a member of Betsson’s Board since 2018. Johan Lundberg is the founder of NFT Ventures and a Board Member of Loomis, Svolder and Ölands Bank.

“I would like to extend a warm thank you to Patrick Svensk for his valuable contributions to the Board for almost 17 years. I look forward to continuing the work with the rest of the board to recruit the next generation of international leader to Betsson and at the same time complete the strategic work that is going on with renewal and growth,” Johan Lundberg said.

The Chairman of the Nomination Committee Michael Knutsson has expressed full confidence and support for the remaining Board members and its election of a new Chairman and supports the decision to seek the next generation of international leader for Betsson.

Holland Casino Expects Gains in H2 2021

Published

Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Holland Casino is preparing for recovery after a rough first half of the year, having been forced to close for more than 5 months due to measures taken against the COVID-19 pandemic.

As anticipated by the Dutch state-owned company, the extended closure had a negative impact on its financial results for the first half of the year. But as its 14 branches have been operating again since June 5, the operator now expects to post positive results for the second half of 2021.

Turnover achieved in June shows that Holland Casino will soon be able “to operate in a healthy manner” again. Moreover, after having completed “necessary restructuring,” the company expects to become a more efficient and agile organisation, according to a press statement released on Wednesday.

Turnover for H1 2021 posted a low €28.8 million. Net results for tax purposes amounted to a loss of €64.8 million, compared to a loss of €37.8 million over the same period in 2020, in which the company remained open for several months.

“Although Coronavirus also hit our company head-on in the first half of 2021, notably our anniversary year in which we celebrate 45 years in business, we still look ahead with confidence. All in all, Netherlands was deprived of legal casino offer for almost a year, but now that the measures are disappearing little by little, recovery is in sight,” Erwin van Lambaart, CEO of Holland Casino, said.

“We see bright spots in the potential offer of online games of chance as of October 1, for which we have applied for a license, and the opening of our new world-class casino branches in Venlo and Utrecht,” van Lambaart added.

CFO Ruud Bergervoet considers that having sufficient liquid assets in the past six months was key to the company getting through the difficult period of closure. That, along with the NOW scheme, the deferral of tax payments, strict cost control measures and tight operation management, led to the company being able “to safeguard the continuity” of its operations over the past year and a half.

“The significant tax debt of €190.5 million is offset by a strong liquidity position without bank debt. We are therefore considering paying off this tax debt more quickly if no new Coronavirus measures are introduced and the recovery actually continues. The results after June are promising in that regard,” Bergervoet said.

Despite all branches now being open, certain pandemic measures are still being enforced, and Holland Casino is receiving guests at limited capacity in its gambling venues. The company expects that these measures will be phased out, with the hope to open at full capacity and without restrictions “towards autumn.”

“We are also looking forward to the reintroduction of poker, live bingo and our NXT zones so that gaming can really be experienced together again. We also hope to be able to offer our bars and restaurants after midnight, which currently all close at midnight,” van Lambaart said.
