Reading Time: 2 minutes


Maxima Compliance has opened a dedicated office in the Netherlands to better serve customers in the fast-growing Dutch online gaming sector.

The office is launched as a Joint Venture with Gran Via BV, a leading business consulting firm with in-depth Dutch market expertise.

It will deliver Maxima Compliance’s award-winning suite of technical and regulatory compliance services to Netherlands-based gaming companies, with a local approach specific to the requirements of the country.

This includes quality management system review and support, change management support, technical and regulatory compliance support, and Maxima DataVault.

Antonio Zanghi, CEO of Maxima Compliance, said: “It’s become clear in the short few months since regulated online gaming launched in the Netherlands that only those with a strong handle on compliance requirements will succeed in this exciting new market. Maxima Compliance’s Dutch office means we can now provide bespoke and local expertise to operators and suppliers in the Netherlands.”

Tom de Bruijn, Co-Founder of Gran Via BV, said: “Since the Netherlands finally launched its regulated online gaming framework last year, the market is quickly developing into one of the most important in Europe. Gaming businesses are learning that a deep understanding of local conditions and requirements, particularly when it comes to compliance, is essential. That’s why we are thrilled to be working alongside the best in the business, Maxima Compliance.”

To further demonstrate its long-term commitment to the fast-growing Dutch market, Maxima Compliance will also partner with leading Dutch B2B iGaming community Gaming in Holland from 2022.

Willem van Oort, Founder of Gaming in Holland, said: “I am very happy to welcome Maxima Compliance to the Netherlands-focused iGaming community. In order to operate successfully in the highly-regulated Dutch market, technical compliance is of paramount importance. This holds true not only for licensed operators, but also for related B2B service providers.”

The Netherlands launched regulated online gaming in October 2021, with the Dutch 2021 GGR at an estimated €814m.

Maxima Compliance is the leading full service regulatory and technical compliance provider for the betting and gaming industry.

Juicy Button Games, a new independent games studio co-founded by the creators of Total Battle, Pixel Gun 3D and Mighty Party, today emerges from stealth with the announcement of a USD $3M seed round led by The Games Fund, a specialist early-stage VC fund that invests in outstanding video game developers and GameTech companies.

The investment will fuel Juicy Button Games’ development of an innovative mobile-first 4x strategy game from its headquarters in Limassol, Cyprus. The 4x genre is typically dominated by studios from China and, in its quest to create a worthy European challenger, Juicy Button Games has assembled a founding superteam which has been responsible for mobile titles grossing over $700M. Each co-founder brings a unique skillset to Juicy Button Games to create the perfect blend of top-tier 4x mechanics, slick user experience, and data-backed creative marketing. They are:

  • Alexander Kravchuk. A mobile gaming veteran with over 20 years of experience, Alexander is the creator of Total Battle, a leading MMO strategy title with $222M in lifetime revenue and 43M lifetime unique players.

  • Anton Sinelnikov. Anton is the co-founder and game design director of Cubic Games, which was acquired by Nexters in 2022 in a $100M deal. Cubic Games is best known for its legendary mobile FPS, Pixel Gun 3D, which has grossed over $220M on mobile and achieved 190M downloads. Anton is participating in Juicy Button Games’ seed round alongside The Games Fund as an angel investor.

  • Aleksandr Zaytsev. Aleksandr is the co-founder of Panoramik Games, a studio specializing in mobile midcore fantasy games including Mighty Party. Panoramik Games’ titles have achieved more than 70M downloads, with lifetime revenue of almost $180M across its portfolio.

Alexander Kravchuk, co-founder at Juicy Button Games, said:

“To launch Juicy Button Games, we brought together all four key elements: leading marketing expertise, cutting-edge tech, massive game design knowledge, and smart capital. Each of us has been in the games industry for decades and built successful companies, best in class. We united to alloy our collective expertise and resources and pour it into building the best 4x strategy game on the market. We’re set to launch and scale top-quality, deep, and juicy games that players will enjoy for years. We have known The Games Fund team for years and are excited to join forces with them as our first investor for this journey from Cyprus to global top charts!”

Ilya Karpinskiy, co-founder and General Partner at The Games Fund, said:

“At The Games Fund we are big believers in the mobile games market. But if you want to survive in the red ocean you better be a shark. Alexander, Anton, and Aleksandr are AAA founders and gurus in their domains with proven track records and top-grossing games under their belts. We can not imagine a better founding team for such an ambitious goal! Europe’s game development scene is an untapped pool of opportunities, and we are on a mission to connect outstanding gaming founders from overlooked regions with the global industry from the United States to South Korea! We are proud and humbled that both young and seasoned founders trust TGF to be their founding investor and can’t wait to see them building global companies!”

The Games Fund has raised $50 million to invest in gaming companies and founders from emerging markets in Central and Eastern Europe, such as ROAR Games, Obelisk Studio, Made on Earth Games, KEK Entertainment and Jarvi Games.

More powerful prizes await with Playson’s Thunder Coins: Hold and Win



Reading Time: 2 minutes

Playson, the fast-growing digital entertainment supplier, provides an electrifying experience in Thunder Coins: Hold and Win, showcasing the signature Thunder Coins feature.

Players are treated to a classic 3×3 grid as a feast of fruit symbols occupy the reels, accompanied by a fierce bolt of lightning striking through the golden coins which act as the Thunder Bonus symbols. Advanced graphics and gripping sound effects add even more thrill to each spin.

Triggered by the appearance of the Thunder Bonus symbol, the Thunder Coins feature accumulates the values of all other Bonus symbols to add them to a total win of a spin. Players will be able to benefit from the stand-out feature in both the main gameplay and Bonus Game.

The classic Bonus Game is triggered when there is at least one Bonus symbol on each reel. Only Bonus and Thunder symbols land on the reels during the Bonus Game, with the latter landing solely on reel two and remaining sticky throughout.

Four jackpots during the Bonus Game bring an extra dimension, with the random appearance of red, green, blue and purple lightning coins triggering jackpots rising as high as x1000.

Bonus symbols landing during the main game also present the chance of triggering the Pile of Gold feature, which fast tracks access to the Bonus Game by granting additional Bonus and Thunder symbols.

Thunder Coins: Hold and Win illustrates Playson’s commitment to continuously implementing stimulating new features whilst paying testament to popular mechanics that have proven a clear success with players.

Tamas Kusztos, CCO at Playson, said: “Thunder Coins: Hold and Win is a thrilling addition to our slot portfolio, showcasing our ever-popular Hold and Win mechanic and an array of engaging new features.

“The classic feel to the game combined with crisp graphics, immersive bonus rounds and an exciting new Thunder Coins feature presents a complete package and we are eager to see the response from players.”
