Award-winning game development studio Evoplay, unravels the mystery of the Northern Temple, in its latest release.

Transporting players to a picturesque, mountainous setting, the slot begins across 5×3 reels with a variety of monolithic statues making up the game’s symbols. Golden Wilds can also appear from the second reel onwards, substituting other symbols to create wins.

With every winning combination formed, a new reel is unlocked as new symbols fill the gameboard, increasing the number of ways to win.

In addition, this growing reel feature also triggers multipliers for every symbol drop beginning with 1x, increasing incrementally and can expand up to six reels high or until no additional wins are created.

Shining on the stony walls are Coin symbols, which can land on the reels at any point during the game and remain in place until there are no wins left on the board.

If players land three or more of these symbols after the drop feature has taken place, each coin will reveal a multiplier value which will be added together and multiply winnings. This aids players in reaching the maximum win of over 6000x their bet.

Three or more Scatter symbols take players to the bonus round where 15 Free Spins are awarded. Here, players have the potential to retrigger an additional 15 spins, as well as land Coin symbols helping to unlock the Temple’s secrets and attain massive wins.

Further diversifying its portfolio, Evoplay’s latest release follows a string of new titles including recent hits such as Penalty Roulette and Mary’s Mining Mania.

Commenting on the launch, Ivan Kravchuk, CEO at Evoplay, said: “Northern Temple takes players on a stone-age adventure where mystical symbols hold the power of unwavering wins.

“Stacked with features including growing reels, multiplier coins and the thrilling Free Spins round, Northern Temple is a highly engaging title with a multitude of ways to be awarded to keep players enticed.”

As well as going live with multiple tier-one providers, including Bragg Gaming, Fortuna Entertainment Group and Relax Gaming, Evoplay also won the coveted Innovation in Casino Entertainment award as well as Casino/Slots Developer of the Year at the 2022 SBC Awards.

In addition, at EGR’s 2023 B2B Awards, Evoplay secured the Innovation in Mobile award, a testament to Evoplay’s reputation as one of the industry’s most exciting suppliers.

Apparat Gaming unleash a howling Hold & Spin adventure in 5 Moon Wolf

Apparat Gaming unleash a howling Hold & Spin adventure in 5 Moon Wolf
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

This month, Apparat Gaming – the software developer famed for delivering quality iGaming titles with a German accent – is inviting players to embrace the call of the wild and join the pack for a howlingly good time in the brand-new release, 5 Moon Wolf Hold & Spin.

Offering medium volatility and max wins of 2,500x, 5 Moon Wolf Hold & Spin is a five-reel slot with 20 fixed paylines. Set in the imposing canyons of the American west, the game boasts a range of majestic predators on its reels, with eagles, bears, mountain lions and wolves all appearing as high-value icons.

The real “bite” of the game, however, comes in the form of its two distinct bonus features, which can be activated by hunting down three scatters or five full moons respectively. The first is a free spins round, while the second is Apparat’s popular Hold & Spin game, which is linked to four local jackpots.

Dealing with the two features in order, once three scatters have been hit, night will fall on the reels as at least eight free games are awarded. During these free spins, not only will all low value symbols be removed from the reels, but players can also extend the feature by landing further scatters or trigger an even more lucrative version of the Hold & Spin bonus in which the prizes for full moons are doubled.

The Hold & Spin feature, which is triggered by five or more full moons, begins with a pack of wolves chasing across the screen while a series of free respins are played as long as at least one new moon appears within the next three respins. This allows players to collect moons to win instant cash prizes as well as the Mini, Minor and Major local jackpots, with an additional Grand Bonus being awarded should they successfully fill all 15 reel spaces before the respins come to an end.

Of course, for players who are champing at the bit to enter the Hold & Spin bonus without triggering it manually, an optional Buy Feature is also available. With this granting them immediate access to the bonus for an additional stake, they can therefore bypass the luck factor and dive directly into the feature, where they’ll be able to sink their teeth into lunar-powered wins without needing to wait.

Martin Frindt, Co-Founder & Chief Product Officer at Apparat Gaming, said: “With Apparat’s signature Hold & Win feature already proving a howling success with players, we thought it was high time we gave the popular bonus another run out in our action-packed slot adventure, 5 Moon Wolf.

“Linked to four lucrative local jackpots, this exciting extra gives our new lupine-themed game plenty of bite – and when coupled with a free spins feature that uses only the slot’s higher-value symbols, we’re sure players are going to love taking a walk on the wild side now that 5 Moon Wolf Hold & Win is out.”

Anger in the Industry After the Swedish Gambling Authority’s Acquittal of Infiniza

Published

on

Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Last Friday, Di wrote about how the Swedish Gambling Authority closed an investigation into the Malta-based casino operator Infiniza, whose online casino, according to the authority’s assessment, is not aimed at Swedes. This is after the company changed the payment operator, i.e. who manages the transfer of gambling money from bank accounts to the casino, and the criteria that determine whether someone directs gambling at Swedes are not considered fulfilled.

Actions Did The Trick For Infiniza

“In light of the measures Infiniza Limited has taken regarding the company’s marketing as well as the payment options and/or payment service providers that were the subject of the current supervisory case, the Swedish Gambling Inspectorate assesses that the company, based on what emerged in the case, ceased to provide gambling aimed at the Swedish market without necessary license”

From the Gambling Authority’s decision that Infiniza review ceases, 21/2 2024.

Gustaf Hoffstedt, general secretary of the licensed gambling operators’ association The Swedish Trade Association for Online Gambling (Bos), is upset.

“It is offensive, and endangers the entire safety and security of the Swedish gambling license system,” he told Di about the Spelinspektionen’s decision, which he read about “with dismay” in Di.

According to Gustaf Hoffstedt, who refers to web traffic statistics that Di has taken part in, Infiniza is one of Sweden’s largest players in online casinos.

“They are estimated to have a significant operation in Sweden, in fact a large part of it is intended to receive Swedish consumers. It is of course extremely profitable, as they do not pay any Swedish gambling tax.”

The Swedish Gambling Authority’s decision has been made after Infiniza’s casinos changed their payment provider to one based in Lithuania. In the past, the Swedish-registered payment services Finshark and Zimpler reviewed by Di have been used.

“That’s exactly how it goes: if someone shines a spotlight on the fact that payment intermediaries ‘blue’ are not okay, payment intermediaries become ‘red’, then ‘green’, then ‘purple’ – and it goes on forever.”

Gustaf Hoffstedt calls for stricter legislation similar to that in the Netherlands, where it is forbidden to even accept domestic players – whereby more people play with the licensed players.

“The basic problem is the scope of the Swedish law, that is to say that unlicensed gambling companies are not explicitly prohibited from passively accepting Swedish players, provided that the company does not target them,” he says.

For several years, BOS has addressed the problem to both governments, investigators and the Gambling Authority and called for the Netherlands’ example to be followed, with the criminalization of passively accepting and enabling Swedish players.

However, the organization has cut stone in stone, and has not received a hearing for its proposal.

“The government does not want this. It claims that the channelization (the percentage of licensed gamblers, Di’s note) is good in Sweden, which unfortunately is not true, that the gambling market is stable, which is also not true, and that this is not a path that Sweden should follow.”

Marcus Aronsson, investigator at Spelinspektionen, told Di that the decision from last Friday only concerns Infiniza’s use of Zimpler, and that the just concluded case was already started in 2021.

He cannot comment on whether the payment company or companies used thereon means that Infiniza can be considered to target Swedes, nor whether a new review of the operator has been initiated after the Zimpler case.

In the decision, however, it is explicitly mentioned that the Swedish Gambling Authority can initiate a new supervisory case if Infiniza can again be considered to target the Swedish market without the necessary license.
