COPA90 has announced the appointment of Petrit Berisha in the newly created role of Head of Cryptomedia.

Petrit joins after consulting and building out various projects in media, sports, financial services and the blockchain space. He’s a multi award winning podcast producer, best known for his former production of the podcast ‘Blockchain Insider,’ by financial services consultancy 11:FS.

Over the past few years, Cryptocurrencies, and more specifically NFTs, have encroached on our lives across several facets. Art, gaming and music have already been, and will continue to be, disrupted by blockchain technology. The sporting world is no different. This is a new paradigm for media, which the sporting content world will need to evolve with.

This nascent technology plays a role in fan engagement as football fans discover new ways to engage with their passion in a digital way.

Over the last year, NBA topshots, Sorare and Socios, to name a few, have become some of the biggest projects in the Cryptocurrency space. The reimagination of fan engagement with sports clubs – as well as the media that it is enveloped by – is going to be heavily impacted by blockchain technology in the future.

When COPA90 was created in 2012, they took the view that the future of football media was about to change forever. Almost 10 years on and they  are readying themselves for the next great shift. COPA90 believes that the future of fan engagement will look very different in five years and that they have a big role to play within this.

Petrit Berisha, said: “COPA90 are leaders in the football media space, creating exciting and interesting content for football fans around the world as well as incredible brands. I’m looking forward to joining them as they enter this new paradigm of fan engagement, creator economies and media.”

Tom Thirlwall, CEO of COPA90 said: “We believe that the next iteration of fan engagement and media will be impacted massively by Blockchain technology – from ticketing and experiences to content and way beyond what is currently being imagined. We are very excited about Petrit’s appointment and the potential that exists for COPA90 in this space.”

Petrit joins COPA90 with immediate effect.

Yggdrasil and Peter & Sons hit the high notes in operatic new release Valkyries
Reading Time: 1 minute

 

Yggdrasil and Peter & Sons have come together to create an unforgettable Norse themed slot that re-tells the dramatic story of Wagner’s most famous opera, The Valkyrie.

Valkyries follows the epic tale of the legendary Valkyries welcoming fallen heroes into Valhalla and boasts a bumper selection of bonus features and mechanics including Dropping and Locking Wilds with random multipliers up to 10x, Wild Overlaps and a powerful free spins bonus game awarding 10 free spins with two additional spins awarded every time a Locking Wild appears.

The pièce de résistance of this musical masterpiece is the Power Reel, a horizontal reel that sits below the main reels. This spins and stops once during the feature and causes different reel modifiers to jump onto the main vertical reels.

Released as part of the YG Masters program, Valkyries is the latest game developed by one of iGaming’s most talented rising stars, Peter & Sons.

The title 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: “Despite being a relatively new studio Peter & Sons have already carved out a solid reputation for themselves, creating some of the most memorable online slots we’ve ever seen.

“Their enthusiasm for developing beautifully-designed games with truly engaging features really shines through, and there’s no better example of this than Valkyries.”

Yann Bautista, Business Development Manager at Peter & Sons, said: “We constantly strive to create superior and unique gaming experiences for players, and we genuinely believe we’ve hit the high notes with Valkyries.

“With a unique theme, wonderful visuals and some really exciting features, which can see players win more than 20,000x their bet, what’s not to love?”
