Pragmatic Play, a leading content provider to the iGaming industry are set to continue raising the bar for industry promotions as Drops and Wins moves into a new stage. Beginning on 9th February and lasting a whole year until the same date in 2023, the incredible prize pool of €1,000,000 will yet again be up for grabs. 

As part of the companies unrelenting commitment to offering an elite product to operators, Pragmatic Play run what is arguably the best provider promotion in the industry, not only from the perspective of the staggering amount being given away monthly, but how easy it is for operators to integrate it into their site as almost all the integration is managed by Pragmatic Play. 

The next phase of Drops and Wins will continue with €1,000,000 (€500,000 on Slots and €500,000 on Live Casino) being given away across Weekly Tournaments and Daily Prize Drops. Tournaments encourage a sense of healthy rivalry among participating players, along with the Prize Drops tool that randomly rewards players. The beauty of Drops and Wins is its versatility to cater for various player types, as Tournaments reward prizes based on the highest single win amount, along with random Prize Drop wins for those punters who just hop on for a few spins. Either way, Pragmatic Play takes some of the pressure off operators as this tool can play a vital role in player retention. 

Furthermore, this next version of Drops and Wins will see Free Round Bonuses or FRB’s being awarded to players of the numerous Slots games that feature as part of Drops and Wins such as the award-winning Gates of Olympus. FRB’s act as extension of the Tournaments and Prize Drops, awarding players with Free Spins on their favourite slots based on their leaderboard position or simply at random. 

Yossi Barzely, Chief Business Development Officer at Pragmatic Play says; “By the time the next stage begins, we will have given away €13,000,000 to players through Drops and Wins. 

We are always striving to understand the player, and what better way to give a positive gaming experience than to facilitate more of the feeling that players log on for; the winning feeling. We are delighted with the positive feedback this promotion has received and relish the opportunity to excite players with it for another year.”

All bronze medallists of the Indian DOTA 2 team – Moin Ejaz (captain), Ketan Goyal, Abhishek Yadav, Shubham Goli, and Vishal Vernekar were presented with the appreciation memento in a felicitation ceremony for their exceptional accomplishment at the recently concluded Commonwealth Esports Championship.

Several dignitaries, including IOA Acting President Mr. Anil Khanna, General Secretary Mr. Rajeev Mehta, Treasurer Mr. Anandeshwar Pandey, Team India’s Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games Chef de Mission Mr. Rajesh Bhandari, General Team Manager Mr. Maninder Pal Singh, and former IOA president Mr N. Ramachandran, graced the occasion and felicitated the medallists.

This was the very first time that an Indian Esports contingent had been invited to the felicitation ceremony along with the other mainstream sports medallists.

“It is an unforgettable day for the rest of the team and me. To have the opportunity to be here with the other medallists from various sports and get awarded by the Indian Olympic Association for a medal in Esports is a very special achievement. All of the efforts that we took throughout our journey have finally started to bear fruits, with this being just the beginning. We are going to go with twice the energy and motivation into the Asian Games to do even better for the country.” said a proud Moin Ejaz, captain of the Indian DOTA 2 Team.

The Indian contingent met with renowned sports personalities such as Harmanpreet Kaur (Indian Women’s Cricket Team captain), Bhavina Patel & Sonalben Manubhai Patel (Para TT Player) and Deepak Punia (Indian wrestler) and enlightened them about Esports as well as the basics of DOTA 2, the video game in which they clinched the bronze medal.

To be recognised by the IOA for the DOTA 2 contingent’s achievement amongst the country’s finest athletes feels like a cherry on top of the cake of winning the bronze medal. The trajectory of Esports in India has seen its fair share of highs and lows, but with the Asian Games coming up, the only way seems to be upwards from here. The expectations are undoubtedly high now because of the bar that has been set, but we have complete faith in our Esports athletes to transition this form in the upcoming international competitions and make the country proud.”said Lokesh Suji, Director of Esports Federation of India and Vice President of the Asian Esports Federation.

The IOA officials congratulated the DOTA 2 team on their historic bronze medal, which the ESFI believes is a testament to the relevance of the Commonwealth Games given the rise in popularity esports in India is expected to witness following the national team’s medal-winning feat in the inaugural edition of the Commonwealth Esports Championship.
