Platform and aggregator Groove is delighted to announce an extended collaboration with one of the most innovative companies to enter the slots space, RubyPlay.

RubyPlay is a leading developer of online slots serving over 600 casino brands and millions of unique players monthly.

RubyPlay’s suite of slots are established favourites among players in markets around the world with titles such as flagship, Mayan Cache, a 5Ă—3 reel video slot that is packed with bonus features such as Free Spins, Super Free Spins and Jackpot Mania; Loco Habanero, Vegas No Limit Wins, Book of Riches Deluxe, Elephant Stampede, Zeus Rush Fever, Grand Express Action Class, New Year Rising, and Adventures of Li’l Red, amongst others. Upcoming releases include the much anticipated Golden Forge, and the highly touted Diamond Explosion 7’s.

RubyPlay has been very active in developing interesting mobile-rich features, such as the ‘shake-shake’ feature on Shake Shake Leprechaun, where players shake their phones to release coins and bonuses from a rainbow. These unique fun game features are combined with best-in-class maths, a team of talented game designers and some of the best slots art in the industry.

Groove’s powerful platform includes thousands of casino games as well as a wealth of aggregated content ranging from slots, sportsbook, online casino and live casino, to poker and table games, that operators can access via easy integration to drive player engagement and revenue. This latest arrangement with RubyPlay adds to Groove’s rapidly growing portfolio.

Groove’s focus on innovation as a driving force for their business is well known across multiple stakeholder groups in the iGaming industry for a compelling twin-turbo online casino management system offering extended services to every operator who wants to offer casino games, sportsbooks, bingo and lotteries. It’s based on the GrooveHub, which offers API and instant access to leading suppliers in the iGaming industry and GrooveOn, an easy-to-use multifunctional back-office that powers performance.

Daniel Louie, Game Designer at RubyPlay said: “Our new ‘mobile-first approach to game design is playing out in titles such as Roman Legend which also has a novel game mechanic. The main character, a Roman Centurion, grows in size on-screen as the game progresses, occupying more and more of the screen, and visually underscoring the growing excitement of the player. This is a good example of how we as gamblers make games for other gamblers.”

Matthew Gera, RubyPlay’s Commercial Director said: “With Groove the numbers are good, the customer service team are fantastic, and the account management is very responsive, everything is delivered to a ‘T’. With Groove’s robust operator cluster and international reach, we are sure that our next generation of games will help enrich their platform while we get the reach and distribution network that they have patiently built over the years.”

Yahale Meltzer, COO at Groove said: “RubyPlay matches our ambition to bring high-quality products to the portfolio, strong performers that are fresh and packed with great features such as Jackpot Mania. RubyPlay has a release strategy that makes sense and we should be getting 17 new titles from them alone this year.”

Published

Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

The iGaming industry’s awards season is in full swing. Today (1st June 2023), Slotsoo is jumping on the train by launching Slotsoo Casino Awards. With this new venture, the casino comparison site wants to celebrate excellence among casino operators in a fun way, with the goal to inspire the casino industry to do better.

Fun Categories that are Relevant to Players

The Slotsoo Casino Awards consist of seven different trophies with humorous names such as The Bonus Buff and The Withdrawal Wizard. The team has made an intentional decision to keep the number low and the categories focused on the player experience.

Markus Björk, Slotsoo’s head writer and team leader, explains:

”Slotsoo wants to be the perfect mix of serious and fun – we are allergic to boring. When deciding on the different categories we made sure they resonate to players and not just media or higher-ups. We also wanted to avoid having too many trophies, because then they would lose their point. If everyone is a winner, then nobody is a winner.”

He continues to tell that every team member likes to play slots too, so they know what the average player values and what they don’t.

The Winners for Slotsoo Awards 2023

·         The Gambling GOAT – Svenbet Casino

·         The Bonus Buff – Slot Paradise

·         The Loyalty Lord – Qbet Casino

·         The Withdrawal Wizard – iBet Casino

·         The Gamification Guru – Happy Hugo

·         The Payout Professor – Snatch Casino

·         The Noisy Newcomer – Monsino

Please visit Slotsoo Casino Awards for descriptions of the trophies and detailed winner motivations.

All casinos listed on Slotsoo are automatically nominated. Instead of using an external jury to select the winners, the decision is done by the team itself – meaning the same people that actually test and review every site.

Big Plans for Expansion

The dust has barely settled from the launch of the new awards, but the Slotsoo team already have big aspirations how to expand the concept. Markus Björk shares their plans for the future:

”We want to do similar awards on our other language versions. Simultaneously, we are looking to introduce separate awards for game providers. After all, they are the backbone of the casinos, and they deserve just as much celebration.”

Who is Slotsoo?

Slotsoo is a multilingual comparison site for online casinos and slots run by a tight-knit group of slot enthusiasts. The website was launched in 2017 and offers expert reviews of casinos, slots and game providers – plus guides for different payment methods and license authorities.

The English version targets the European market as a whole, while the other languages are focusing on specific countries. Slotsoo is committed to only promote legal and licensed casinos that respect EU laws. Want to know more? Check out the page about Slotsoo or contact the team at [email protected]

Compliance Updates

The Slovak Gambling Authority’s systematic check activities help reduce the number of illegal gaming devices

Published

In Q1 2023, the Slovak Gambling Authority conducted 2511 compliance checks, which is 201 more compared to last year.

The significant year-on-year increase in the number of checks is due to the restructuring of surveillance and the strategic set-up of the supervision by the Authority's top management.

"I am very pleased that the goals set up by the current management are also successfully fulfilled in the gambling supervision area. Of course, a big thank you to our local supervisors, who actively investigate illegal devices and supervise the fulfilment of all legal requirements by legal operators.
Having gambling under systematic supervision is one of the main missions of the Authority as a gambling regulator," said the Director General at the Office for the Regulation of Gambling (URHH), Dávid Lenčéš.

More than a 45 % increase against the same period last year was recorded in checks focused on the search of illegal gambling establishments. In the first quarter of 2023, supervisors conducted 437 compliance checks focusing on unlawful gambling as mining and quiz machines, intending to prevent further operation. As Director General said, “Increased systematic check activities of illegal establishments has its justification and brings results as, compared to 2022, the number of detected illegal gaming machines on the market is significantly reduced. Searching for illegal establishments and seizing illegal devices has a preventive nature and ultimately protects society, especially at-risk groups and the youth.”

According to the Gambling Act, small operators, such as pubs, can't operate gaming machines. The URHH must license each gaming machine since it is the only official body authorised to issue a license. Operating gambling without a given license is prohibited in Slovakia.

The Gambling Regulatory Authority also carries out surveillance remotely. In the Q1 of this year, we are talking about an almost 90 % increase in on-site checks compared with last year. Thanks to online access to the servers of gambling operators, this form of supervision allows more effective control of many establishments without physically leaving the workplace.

Establishing a specialised online gaming department in 2022 also contributed to the overall increase of supervision effectiveness over 2022-2023. The mission of the specialised department is to supervise licensed online gambling or searching for and restrict access to illegal websites operating or promoting gambling without valid licenses.
