Leading online lotto betting operator, Lottoland, has recently made the transition to become a fully carbon neutral company and has also signed The Climate Pledge. Working with Tunley Engineering, a global climate reduction consultancy Lottoland has taken the necessary steps in measuring, reporting, and offsetting their carbon footprint. Lottoland is the first Gambling operator to achieve a carbon neutral status and to sign The Climate Pledge.

Tunley Engineering provided a Carbon Assessment that allowed Lottoland to fully comprehend and visualise their carbon footprint in annual tonnes of Carbon Equlivance. With Lottolands greater understanding of the Carbon Cost attached to Energy Use, Business Travel and Water Use they can make informed decisions in how to continue to make tangible reductions to their carbon footprint which by extension makes them a greener and more ethical company.

With the assessment and reduction completed in accordance with ISO 14064, Lottoland have now signed the Climate Pledge alongside over 200 other companies globally, further cementing their commitment to a greener future, and achieving net-zero carbon emissions by 2040 or sooner.

“We’re excited to continue to welcome companies to The Climate Pledge,” said Sally Fouts, global lead at Amazon for The Climate Pledge. “Businesses have played a role in contributing to climate change, but deep cuts in emissions of greenhouse gases can stabilize increasing temperatures. This is why urgent, collaborative action by companies around the world is needed. Pledge signatories are uniquely positioned to rise to the challenge of addressing climate change and helping to create the low-carbon economy of the future. I look forward to seeing all we can accomplish over the next two decades, together.”

Lottoland CEO Nigel Birrell said: “We are thrilled to have a achieve carbon neutral status and to have signed the Climate Pledge. At Lottoland we are committed to being socially and environmentally responsible not just for our customers but for our employees too. We are proud to be taking a leadership position in climate change.”

The SOFTSWISS Casino Platform is expanding its functionality by adding new features and updates, which contribute to player acquisition and retention. Bonus management via API is now available to our clients. The tool makes bonus management even more flexible and allows operators to add a new level of personalisation to bonuses for each player. Moreover, the Bonus API  by the SOFTSWISS Casino Platform enables clients to use the plethora of parameters and settings to craft unique bonuses. 

The Bonus API is a robust and secure tool for bonus automation. This new alternative to the built-in bonus module found in the Casino Platform’s back office allows clients to create and provide free spins, cash and lootbox bonuses tied to various events without changing bonus system settings. 

The interface will be especially appreciated by operators who want to extend bonus system possibilities. Via API, SOFTSWISS clients can run their own settings for a desirable bonus, and the system offers the appropriate bonus to a user with the most relevant gaming behaviour. The interface will feature player profile parameters to set up bonus rules. This will enrich the player experience, make the brand’s bonus policy more productive and reduce the waiting time for the bonus implementation. 

This addition brings a player-centric approach, flexibility and process customisation to the front. The Bonus API satisfies clients’ requests and helps them create improved player bonuses. This is another step towards a smart casino management model for the SOFTSWISS Casino Platform team and their clients. 

“We strive to improve the SOFTSWISS Casino Platform by constantly introducing new functionality and making the product more flexible for our clients. The Bonus API is an excellent example of a tool which will help operators build long-term and fruitful relationships with players, prioritising a personal approach and boosting audience loyalty. Our team is committed to the SOFTSWISS Casino Platform’s ongoing evolution. We will continue to develop new top-notch technologies to provide our clients with exceptional service and leading innovations in iGaming,” – highlighted Darya Avtukhovich, Head of the Casino Platform at SOFTSWISS.

Quadrant has today (15 August) renewed its long-term partnership with world-leading audio-visual technology provider Elgato.

This renewal of Quadrant’s first official partnership signals the success of a natural fitting collaboration. The popular gaming content channel and streaming hardware organisation have both grown exponentially within the video sharing arena.

‘Create Greatness’ is a rallying cry to enable creators and unite communities as Elgato strives to empower them with technology that enhances, defines and perfects the creators’ output.

This marks the content creation tech specialists’ first brand campaign focused upon the amplification of creativity, an area which Quadrant and its founder Lando Norris are more than equipped to assist with.

As Quadrant’s Official Streaming Equipment Partner, Elgato has unlocked the combined audience of the channel’s prestigious talent team – Lando Norris, FNG, Aarava, SuperGT, RiaBish, Fifakill and Max Fewtrell – enabling them to reach ever increasing levels of viewership.

Together, the two organisations are set to harness a long-term partnership to deliver, and through ‘Create Greatness’ encourage, top quality content to global audiences on premium streaming hardware.

Jamie MacLaurin, Chief Sporting Officer at Quadrant, said: “We’re very excited to announce the renewal of our partnership with Elgato. This partnership has elevated the quality of our content and live streams both on the Quadrant channel and our creators’ individual channels through continued support and supply of their top-of-the-line equipment. Elgato have been a tremendous partner and a pleasure to work with, and we look forward to building on the foundations we have already built together.”

Tom Hildreth, Senior Partnerships Manager at Elgato, said: “We didn’t hesitate when it came to discussions about working together with Quadrant for a second year. From all the high-quality content they’ve created to being central in one of the largest campaigns we’ve ever put together, we couldn’t be happier with how the partnership has gone so far. With ideas and plans already in the works, it’s an exciting journey that we are thrilled to be continuing.”
