SKS365 and Sportradar have entered a multi-year agreement enriching the betting experience on Planetwin365 with a full-entertainment package. NBA, Bundesliga, as well as tennis, Italian Serie C and Copa Libertadores are just some of the live streaming content that is already available on Planetwin365 sports betting platform. Planetwin365’s live streaming service is available to registered users online and on mobile devices, but also across the company’s retail network, as part of the group’s omnichannel strategy. Through the self-terminals, each customer can autonomously choose to watch their favourite live sports events.

Approximately 8,000 football events are covered each year: in addition to the Bundesliga and Italian Serie C, it is possible to watch the Champions League qualifiers, Copa del Rey and Spanish Super Cup, as well as competitions from all around the world that are not broadcasted on traditional TV channels, such as the Austrian and Swiss championships, the main South America tournaments (Copa Libertadores, Copa Sudamericana, Recopa) and women’s football national team matches. Tennis is live for over 20,000 ITF events per year, while basketball provides 13,000 events per year, including – in addition to the NBA – the Chinese and the main European League competitions. Finally, live streaming includes volleyball, hockey and tennis.

The opportunity to watch live sporting events is a fundamental element of the gaming experience – says Troy Cox, SKS365 Chief Commercial Officer – The agreement with Sportradar allows us to complete our offer with over 40,000 live events every year and put at the players’ disposal an integrated entertainment product which is set to satisfy the needs of all types of customers. From a preliminary analysis, we have noticed that this service, allowing customers to experience the excitement of the live event, has generated a positive impact on the business. For this reason, we are also developing the necessary technologies to make the gaming experience even more interactive both on our shops and online, following our omnichannel approach”.

Stefan Debus, Senior Director Audiovisual Global Commercial at Sportradar, said: “This agreement builds on our long-standing relationship with Planetwin365 and will help them create an immersive betting experience for customers old and new. The addition of streamed content from Sportradar on their website and mobile app provides a full entertainment package to engage betting customers for longer and enable them to make informed betting choices as the sporting action unfolds. Streaming services for retail, will allow each shop to customise their own content, creating a bespoke service with knowledge of their unique customers in mind.”

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Juicy Button Games, a new independent games studio co-founded by the creators of Total Battle, Pixel Gun 3D and Mighty Party, today emerges from stealth with the announcement of a USD $3M seed round led by The Games Fund, a specialist early-stage VC fund that invests in outstanding video game developers and GameTech companies.

The investment will fuel Juicy Button Games’ development of an innovative mobile-first 4x strategy game from its headquarters in Limassol, Cyprus. The 4x genre is typically dominated by studios from China and, in its quest to create a worthy European challenger, Juicy Button Games has assembled a founding superteam which has been responsible for mobile titles grossing over $700M. Each co-founder brings a unique skillset to Juicy Button Games to create the perfect blend of top-tier 4x mechanics, slick user experience, and data-backed creative marketing. They are:

  • Alexander Kravchuk. A mobile gaming veteran with over 20 years of experience, Alexander is the creator of Total Battle, a leading MMO strategy title with $222M in lifetime revenue and 43M lifetime unique players.

  • Anton Sinelnikov. Anton is the co-founder and game design director of Cubic Games, which was acquired by Nexters in 2022 in a $100M deal. Cubic Games is best known for its legendary mobile FPS, Pixel Gun 3D, which has grossed over $220M on mobile and achieved 190M downloads. Anton is participating in Juicy Button Games’ seed round alongside The Games Fund as an angel investor.

  • Aleksandr Zaytsev. Aleksandr is the co-founder of Panoramik Games, a studio specializing in mobile midcore fantasy games including Mighty Party. Panoramik Games’ titles have achieved more than 70M downloads, with lifetime revenue of almost $180M across its portfolio.

Alexander Kravchuk, co-founder at Juicy Button Games, said:

“To launch Juicy Button Games, we brought together all four key elements: leading marketing expertise, cutting-edge tech, massive game design knowledge, and smart capital. Each of us has been in the games industry for decades and built successful companies, best in class. We united to alloy our collective expertise and resources and pour it into building the best 4x strategy game on the market. We’re set to launch and scale top-quality, deep, and juicy games that players will enjoy for years. We have known The Games Fund team for years and are excited to join forces with them as our first investor for this journey from Cyprus to global top charts!”

Ilya Karpinskiy, co-founder and General Partner at The Games Fund, said:

“At The Games Fund we are big believers in the mobile games market. But if you want to survive in the red ocean you better be a shark. Alexander, Anton, and Aleksandr are AAA founders and gurus in their domains with proven track records and top-grossing games under their belts. We can not imagine a better founding team for such an ambitious goal! Europe’s game development scene is an untapped pool of opportunities, and we are on a mission to connect outstanding gaming founders from overlooked regions with the global industry from the United States to South Korea! We are proud and humbled that both young and seasoned founders trust TGF to be their founding investor and can’t wait to see them building global companies!”

The Games Fund has raised $50 million to invest in gaming companies and founders from emerging markets in Central and Eastern Europe, such as ROAR Games, Obelisk Studio, Made on Earth Games, KEK Entertainment and Jarvi Games.

Published

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Playson, the fast-growing digital entertainment supplier, provides an electrifying experience in Thunder Coins: Hold and Win, showcasing the signature Thunder Coins feature.

Players are treated to a classic 3×3 grid as a feast of fruit symbols occupy the reels, accompanied by a fierce bolt of lightning striking through the golden coins which act as the Thunder Bonus symbols. Advanced graphics and gripping sound effects add even more thrill to each spin.

Triggered by the appearance of the Thunder Bonus symbol, the Thunder Coins feature accumulates the values of all other Bonus symbols to add them to a total win of a spin. Players will be able to benefit from the stand-out feature in both the main gameplay and Bonus Game.

The classic Bonus Game is triggered when there is at least one Bonus symbol on each reel. Only Bonus and Thunder symbols land on the reels during the Bonus Game, with the latter landing solely on reel two and remaining sticky throughout.

Four jackpots during the Bonus Game bring an extra dimension, with the random appearance of red, green, blue and purple lightning coins triggering jackpots rising as high as x1000.

Bonus symbols landing during the main game also present the chance of triggering the Pile of Gold feature, which fast tracks access to the Bonus Game by granting additional Bonus and Thunder symbols.

Thunder Coins: Hold and Win illustrates Playson’s commitment to continuously implementing stimulating new features whilst paying testament to popular mechanics that have proven a clear success with players.

Tamas Kusztos, CCO at Playson, said: “Thunder Coins: Hold and Win is a thrilling addition to our slot portfolio, showcasing our ever-popular Hold and Win mechanic and an array of engaging new features.

“The classic feel to the game combined with crisp graphics, immersive bonus rounds and an exciting new Thunder Coins feature presents a complete package and we are eager to see the response from players.”
