Reading Time: < 1 minute


Apparat Gaming, the developer of slots with a German accent, has added a touch of Augenweide (eye candy) to its latest classic fruit slot to hit the market.

Fruits First promises a classic game with a fresh look with the title taking a 5×3 reel format and with five active paylines. This is a game where players really can get fruity, with the traditional Grape, Melon, Lemon, Cherry, Orange, Bell and 7 symbols landing on the reels.

Fruits First is a simple game, but one that reduces to the max by focusing on the essentials: Sleek but modern visuals, fun and of course big win potential. Line up five of those all-important 7s and players can win 1,000x their bet.

Rising star developer Apparat Gaming has earned a reputation for providing online slots that capture the true essence of the German stereotype. Each title is delivered with highest design standards, solid engineering, and no sense of humour whatsoever. And Fruits First is no different…

Fruits First has been certified for launch in core regulated markets including the UK, Denmark, the Netherlands, Greece, Bulgaria, Isle and Man, Malta, Portugal, Romania, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and of course Germany.

Martin Frindt, Chief Product Officer at Apparat Gaming, said: “Classic slots are loved by the players, and with Fruits First we deliver a slot reduced to the maximum – pure entertainment, focused on the essentials, and striking visuals that will draw players in.

“Don’t be fooled by the simplicity of this game – Fruits First captures the essence of a classic slot but with a modern twist! Make fruits great again!

Sporting Index becomes first bookmaker to tackle rugby union Player Performance market



Reading Time: 2 minutes


For the first time in the history of betting on rugby union Sporting Index are offering a Player Performance market ahead of the 2023 Six Nations championship.

Player Performance points will be awarded and subtracted across a number of criteria, from receiving 10 points for a try assist to minus 10 points for a red card. Four Player Performance points will be racked up for any individual points scored in the game, so a try, for example, will see the player dotting down under the sticks rewarded with 20 points (4×5).

Punters will have to decide whether to buy or sell a player’s predicted make-up depending on if they think that player will exceed or fall short of the firm’s expectations.

In England’s opener against Scotland, Owen Farrell’s Player Performance spread, for example is priced at 58-61. So, punters thinking he’ll have a stormer and rack up points should buy, while those who think he’ll struggle to tick the Player Performance boxes can sell.

Sporting Index’s other spreads on the Six Nations predict there will be a total of 686 points scored in the tournament, including 80 tries, while the firm expect there to be 16 players sent to the sin bin.

Neville Burdock, Head of Sportsbook at Sporting Index, said: “For a long time punters have enjoyed betting on player performance markets in football, so we’re excited to take the next step and make that available on rugby union, particularly with the Six Nations kicking off this weekend.

“To be the first bookmaker out with this is a credit to our traders who work tirelessly to crunch the numbers, and we look forward to seeing the uptake from punters over the course of what is a massive 2023 for rugby union.

“With player performance points awarded for the likes of try assists, metres run, line breaks, tackles and points scored, and then subtracted for missed tackles, sin bins and red cards, punters will need to decide whether we’ve gone too high or low on each player’s spread.”

Sporting Index:

Player Performance points system:

10 points per try assist

5 points per line break

4 points per point scored

1 point per 10 metres run (rounded down to nearest 10)
