Relax Gaming, the igaming aggregator and supplier of unique content is ushering in the Year of the Tiger by offering players unlimited possibilities in their latest release Tiger Kingdom Infinity Reels™.

This high volatility Asian-themed slot takes players on an epic journey of untold proportions that can see them win up to 20,000x their stake by way of the Infinity Reels mechanic and a bonus round that features ten special symbols.

Whenever players match three symbols on the 3×3 game grid, the first reel will move to the left and the rightmost reel will re-spin. Re-spins continue indefinitely as long as new matching symbols land.

During re-spins multiplier symbols are present, collecting one will either double, triple or quadruple the total number of symbols collected up until that moment. Collecting three or more scatter symbols will trigger the bonus feature, this sees Coin and Super Coin symbols land, revealing a multiplication of up to 100x the player’s bet. Every time a new coin symbol lands the re-spins reset.

Additionally, there are eight special modifier symbols that can dramatically alter the course of the bonus. Collector symbols collect all other coin values on the reels, Payer symbols increase the coin value up to three positions on the reels with the value it carries and Sniper symbols multiples up to three positions on the grid that carry a coin value with either 2x, 3x or 4x.

There are three persistent versions of these symbols, Persistent Collector, Persistent Payer which perform their actions before every single re-spin. Finally, there’s a reset +1 symbol that increases the re-spin counter value by one and an Extra Row symbol.

If players wish to dive straight into the bonus feature, they can do so by activating the buy feature for 100x their bet at any time.

Simon Hammon, Relax Gaming CPO, said: “Tiger Kingdom Infinity Reels™ is set to be one of our most exciting new games of the year, not only does it feature the much-loved Infinity Reels™ mechanic, but it also boasts elements from our most successful games of 2021.

“When you combine all of the aforementioned features and mechanics with an impressive win potential of 20,000x the player’s stake, it’s not hard to see that this slot is going to be a winner!”

Over 40 esports industry experts gathered in Busan to discuss the current state and future development of esports

The International Esports Federation (IESF) 2022 World Esports Summit wrapped up after two days and eight insightful panel discussions with key stakeholders in the World Esports Family and the wider esports ecosystem, including IESF President Vlad Marinescu and International Olympic Committee (IOC) Head of Virtual Sports Vincent Pereira. The 2022 edition of the WE Summit took place at the Busan Esports Arena in Busan, South Korea, as well as virtually online with support from the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, Busan Metropolitan City, and Busan IT Industry Promotion Agency.

This year was the seventh installment of the WE Summit, which debuted a refreshed branding and visual identity. Panelists included industry executives, global brands, government officials, and other esports leaders.

During the first day of the event, EA Sports Senior Program Manager Byungho Kang, KRAFTON Esports Lead Paul Kim, Nielsen Sports Commercial Leader Pelle Karlsso, IESF Athletes’ Committee Chairperson Tiffany Lim, Advance Learning Partnership Consultant Nesli Kolasinli and more shared their insights and determined the key esports factors of success such as unity, close collaboration, recognition, education, and strong leadership.

IESF President Vlad Marinescu said: “We had a spectacular two days of the World Esports Summit that shined a spotlight on the World Esports Family. IESF would like to thank all of our passionate panelists, moderators, and esports fans who joined us here in Busan and virtually from around the world, and everyone who helped make the summit possible. We are so proud to host this annual event to provide a platform for esports leaders and stakeholders from member federations to discuss key issues in esports and the future of responsible esports worldwide.”

We’ll also have exhibitions to showcase the best of esports aligned with the Olympic values and the Olympic spirit.”

In addition to eight discussion panels, the first day of the WE Summit closed with the Referee Summit, moderated by Nesli Kolasinli, where three panelists came together to learn and develop the highest standards of referee training for IESF’s 129 member federations to be used at events such as the annual World Esports Championships.

AHA NSW Partners with Entain Australia

AHA NSW Partners with Entain Australia
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

The Australian Hotels Association NSW (AHA NSW) and Entain Australia, part of one of the world’s largest sports betting groups, have formed a partnership to acknowledge the place of digital wagering platforms in the betting landscape within NSW hotels.

The long-term agreement will provide an opportunity for Entain Australia to promote its digital wagering brands – Ladbrokes and Neds – in the state’s pubs through a new advertising and sponsorship arrangement.

The arrangement does not interfere with the exclusive license that TAB has in New South Wales for physical outlets. That license was brokered by the State Government in 2013 and runs until 2033.

NSW hotels that decide to enter into the agreement with Entain Australia will display in-venue advertising for Ladbrokes or Neds promoting their digital wagering platforms. They will not install or operate any physical Entain wagering facilities; receive any commission from Entain for any bets placed; have staff operating Entain wagering terminals eg portable iPads or phones; have staff accepting bets from hotel patrons on behalf of Entain; advertise to the general public on the exterior of their hotel; or do anything else which may offend Tabcorp’s retail exclusivity in NSW. The agreement simply markets a form of wagering that many punters already use.

AHA NSW CEO John Whelan said: “The reasons for this new partnership are simple. For decades now, many NSW hotels have operated PubTABs for Tabcorp at a significant loss – primarily due to high Sky Channel and EBT (betting terminal) fees. In country NSW it’s even worse, with the majority of country pubs currently running their PubTAB at a loss.

“Today’s partnership with a world leader in Entain will finally give NSW hotels competition and choice.”

Entain Australia CEO Dean Shannon said: “We applaud AHA NSW for their vision in agreeing to work with us to bring this partnership to life.

“While there is still value in more traditional cash retail wagering, there is a highly engaged audience of punters who like to go down to their local for a bet with their mates, and how they do that has evolved.

“This partnership recognises that evolution and is about offering choice for the benefit of AHA NSW members and their patrons. There is no reason why traditional cash wagering can’t co-exist in a hotel, alongside an advertising sponsorship arrangement with Entain that promotes the digital offering of one of our leading brands.

“Entain recognises the opportunity for us to connect and communicate with the audience inside hotels is valuable and we intend to support the operators of those venues, just as we would any other advertising channel.”

Whelan said it was clear pub patrons had embraced wagering via a smartphone a long time ago.

“Our patrons are already exposed to advertising from corporate bookmakers on our pub TV screens, on the radio, in newspapers and on their phones.

“Increasingly people are choosing to bet on the races or the footy on their phones – not in the traditional retail environment. Today, most people betting on their phone in a NSW pub are placing a bet with Ladbrokes, Neds or another corporate bookmaker.”

The CEO also reiterated that AHA NSW was committed to its supportive partnership with Tabcorp.

“Retail wagering in our venues is extremely important, with NSW pubs generating about half the current national PubTAB turnover,” he said.

“Tabcorp has a long-term exclusive retail licence in NSW and, of course, we will continue to support TAB retail in-venue.”
