The igaming company LeoVegas Group announces a four-year research project in partnership with the Karolinska Institutet’s Department of Clinical Neuroscience, Stockholm, one of the world’s leading medical universities. The research will aim to improve understanding of how to identify signs of problem gambling and, ultimately, prevent it. LeoVegas Group is providing funding and raw data to the research team, who will begin the project in autumn 2022.
LeoVegas Group and Karolinska Institutet’s Department of Clinical Neuroscience will launch a research project to increase understanding of gambling problems and improve methods for identifying and preventing them by studying the Group’s customer data. The joint project is being funded by LeoVegas Group and is part of the company’s efforts to inform the debate about responsible gaming by providing research to support evidence-based discussions, and ultimately lead to a reduction in the harmful effects of gambling.
Philip Lindner, an associate professor and leader of the university’s research unit with expertise in clinical and applied research in digital psychiatry will lead the project. The university’s research unit aims to develop, evaluate, and implement new tools for mapping and treating mental illness. The collaboration guarantees the researchers academic freedom, and the research will shortly be submitted for ethical review.
Gustaf Hagman, CEO of LeoVegas Group, said “Responsible gaming is an important priority for LeoVegas Group. We believe that our industry must take greater responsibility for contributing knowledge and facts about gambling-related problems, and learning how to minimise these issues. We are proud to be partnering with Karolinska Institutet to carry out this valuable research and hope that decision-makers and the igaming industry will be able to apply the findings in order to support more responsible gambling.’’
Philip Lindner, associate professor and research group leader at Karolinska Institutet, added “As researchers at universities, we have a duty to spread knowledge that is useful to society. This collaboration gives us a unique opportunity to study data that hasn’t previously been available for research. We hope that the collaboration will lead to new ways of identifying and helping players at risk, at the earliest possible stage.”
Made-in-India Battle Royale Indus Gameplay Trailer Revealed via London Takeover, Pre-Registrations Live Now
Leading Indian game developer SuperGaming has revealed the first gameplay trailer for its upcoming Indo-Futuristic battle royale Indus to celebrate India’s Republic Day of January 26, 2023.
To launch the gameplay trailer, the company released a series of high-impact takeovers across the biggest locations in London. This is in line with SuperGaming’s vision of putting India on the global gaming map much like its previous Indus trailer launch at New York’s Times Square to mark India’s Independence Day of August 15, 2022.
“As we’ve been making Indus and seeing its gameplay evolve over the year, we wanted to share it with the rest of the world,” says SuperGaming co-founder and CEO Roby John. “This gameplay trailer is for the Indus community the world over that may not have been able to play it with us and to show off the true scale of battle royale that we want you to have when the game is out.”
The trailer entices players to discover, loot, and win on Virlok — the game’s island map, all while showcasing Indus’ weapons, Paragons (the game’s character skins), and traversal. It also highlights multiple locations and firefights with an intent of showing the scope and size of the battle royale experience SuperGaming aims to provide.

nanocosmos is kicking off its 25th anniversary at ICE London 2023 to present refined features for real-time streaming at booth N9-322
The well-established and awarded provider for B2B interactive live streaming starts this year’s dedicated celebration of the company’s 25 years of innovation at ICE London.
Since nanocosmos joined ICE for the first time in 2018, the unique live video streaming platform nanoStream Cloud has raised the bar for live games and live bets being available anywhere at any given time on any device. Right from the beginning, the global gaming industry responded with fantastic feedback in regard to the ultra-low latency live streaming platform that delivers interactive content anywhere in the world on any device – even on mobile platforms, including iOS. The solution has matured and grown into a full featured end-to-end platform with a global network with hundreds of hosts for 24/7/365 operations. This includes unique live video streaming technology and additional tools for analytics and security. Clients from the iGaming and betting space particularly value the fact that the solution combines 100% stability with global access and allows platform operators to deliver interactive games with maximum quality of service and quality of experience for business applications around the world.
CEO and founder Oliver Lietz says: “In the midst of a rapidly changing industry, we noticed that next to the strong demand for games and betting to be available on any device anywhere in the world at ultra-low latency, it is incredibly important for our clients that they can rely on the stability of our platform. 25 years in the audio/video industry is a lot considering how we started in the video broadcast industry with software innovations from the ground off. I am proud that we can dedicate this year to celebrate sustainable innovation and partnerships, which have been our core values from the beginning.”
At booth N9-322, the nanocosmos team will showcase their product – nanoStream Cloud – with new features that highlight ease of use and refine the focus on Quality of Service and Quality of Experience.
New technical features to boost iGaming, betting and live casino include expanded global footprint, security, ease of use and the SRT launch
The smart spectrum of nanoStream Cloud delivers games in real-time, provides adaptive, data driven streaming for improved Quality of Service and Quality of Experience and relies on a strong Content Delivery Network, which has been significantly expanded over the last 12 months and which now further improves scalability to South America.
A series of new features make it easier and faster for stream administrators to manage and secure their streams: nanocosmos will launch nanoStream Guardian at ICE, which extends nanoStream Cloud’s security features to protect streams from misuse. Based on IP and referrer blocking, users can create blocklists for their organization and easily control which pages and users are allowed to play their streamed games.
In addition, new API routes are now available within Analytics: This allows customers to better observe their streams and to optimize the performance of their delivered content. Clients can now detect issues early during the ingestion of content, e.g., by receiving information about data not coming through or dropping bitrates. By contributing to a “healthy streaming workflow” right from the beginning, clients can optimize the quality of experience for their customers based on adaptive bitrate streaming on any device and network. Another highlight is the official launch of the SRT and Whip streaming protocols for improving live stream quality in bad network situations and from distant locations.
At ICE booth N9-322, the nanocosmos team plans to run special events and activities to celebrate 25 years of innovation.
MGA Games presents Circus Mystery, the first slot game on the market featuring mini-games with hidden objects
Jokers, cannons, and top hats welcome players to Circus Mystery, the new casino slot game from MGA Games. A game that invites you to explore the mystery behind its circus reels.
With great themed music, the slot game’s protagonist acts as the master of ceremonies and leads the players to the big circus stage. With its 5-reels, in the main game, artists, acrobats, and clowns present the most wonderful show in the world.
In addition, the slot game incorporates an outstanding innovation with its ‘hidden objects’ mini-games, which makes it the first slot game on the market with this new option. When a player gets 3 or more bonus symbols in the main game, they can access the Circus Mystery mini-games. There are 3 in total, the circus tent, the office full of mysterious objects, and the secret room of chests. Players are encouraged to play the different mini-games and find a hidden key. In two of them, players must locate the hidden objects, either manually or by allowing the game to do so automatically by clicking on the ‘play’ button.
Circus Mystery is a technologically perfect product, designed with MGA Games’ Triple View technology, that allows you to play from any device without waiting, thanks to sequential loading. MGA Games remain true to its philosophy of continually improving and offering better effects, graphics, and animations, as seen in this slot game. The moving birds, balloons, spotlights on the reels, and confetti celebrations all deliver the authentic magic of the circus.
Circus Mystery is a low-volatility game with 25 prize lines available in multiple languages. It will be available to international operators as of January 30th, 2023.
