Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

EPIC Risk Management has partnered with the Professional Cricketers’ Association (PCA), the representative body of past and present first-class cricketers in England and Wales, to provide customised gambling awareness educational programmes for the following groups across a four-year programme.

  • Year 1 – All county academies and women’s regional teams.
  • Year 2 – All county professional squads and rookie camp.
  • Year 3 – All county academies, women’s regional teams and rookie camp.
  • Year 4 – All county professional squads and rookie camp.

“We are delighted to continue our work with the Professional Cricketers’ Association,” Patrick Foster, Director of UK and Rest of the World at EPIC Risk Management, said.

“In 2021 we have been able to provide sessions for the county academies and women’s regional teams, conducting these sessions digitally during lockdown and more recently in person.

“The initial feedback from players has been really encouraging, with the squads showing great interest in the vital message we’ve been delivering; they’ve asked plenty of pertinent questions and demonstrated a lot of understanding how important an issue it is.

“We’re particularly pleased to have been delivering these sessions to the women’s regional teams, which is an important step for all parties as the profile and reward of their competition grows. We’re delighted with this start and looking forward to extending our partnership into the future.”

Ian Thomas, Director of Member Services at the PCA, said: “We are delighted to expand our partnership with EPIC Risk Management in the first agreement of its kind. We have worked extensively with EPIC in the past and the quality of education delivery has always been of the highest standard, so we look forward to this partnership continuing in an official capacity for the next four years, including delivering education to women cricketers for the very first time.

“The welfare of our members is always our first priority, so it’s important that we make all professional cricketers, as well as academy players, aware of the mental health implications that recreational gambling can pose with assistance from EPIC Risk Management.”

Swintt’s Golden Reindeer spreads the holiday cheer in two new markets

Swintt’s Golden Reindeer spreads the holiday cheer in two new markets
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

One of the slot provider’s top performing slot is set to bring more festive fun to MGA and SGA licensed operators this Christmas

In-demand slot provider, Swintt, is gearing up for the holiday season by making its popular Golden Reindeer slot available at all partnering casinos in Malta and Sweden.

Having been something of a staple in studio’s Christmas catalogue since its release last year, players have already enjoyed the slot’s 243 ways to win and festive Free Spins – and now it’s time for those at MGA and SGA licensed casinos to get in on the action too.

Taking place across a 5×3 reel matrix, Golden Reindeer provides everything you’d want from a holiday-themed slot. The gentle ringing of sleigh bells and whistle of cold winter wind provides the perfect soundtrack for players as they go dashing through the snow in search of top wins of 14280x their bet.

Unique symbols to feature in the game are also perfectly suited for the season, with presents, stockings, snowmen, sleighs and Christmas trees making up the slot’s higher-value icons. The theme is even extended to the more traditional ace-through-ten playing card values, with these lower-value symbols being adorned with baubles, bows and Santa hats to really hammer home the holiday spirit.
In terms of the game’s features, the two symbols players need to look out for are the titular golden reindeer and jolly old St Nick, who acts as the game’s scatter. The former is substitute wild that can replace any regular icon to form winning paylines, while the latter is used to trigger the bonus round.

In order to activate this fun, festive feature, players need to land three or more scatters anywhere on the reels within a single spin. When they do, they’ll receive between 8 and 20 Free Spins – depending on the number of triggering symbols – before being transported to a new set of supercharged reels.

With both the background and music changing to herald the start of the feature, here players will get to enjoy their bonus games with the added incentive that the golden reindeer will now add a prize multiplier to any wins that it completes. Landing more reindeers obviously results in more multipliers being added together, with a maximum boost of 15x really helping players increase their feature wins.
Golden Reindeer has already proved to be one of Swintt’s top performing slots in other markets, and the provider is confident that it will continue to spread the festive cheer on its extended re-release.

David Mann, Chief Commercial Officer at Swintt, said: “Christmas has always been a time for giving – and this year we’re giving back to players at Malta and Sweden-licensed sites by making our popular Golden Reindeer slot available to them for the first time.
“The game has already proved to be one of the most successful slots in the Swintt line-up and we’re delighted to be able to share its magic with a brand new audience just ahead of the festive period.”
