SkillOnNet collaborates with Regency Entertainment, Greece’s premier entertainment provider and largest land-based casino operator, bridging land-based expertise with digital innovation
SkillOnNet has announced a strategic joint venture with leading Greek entertainment and hospitality group Regency Entertainment. The deal will combine Regency Entertainment’s casino management expertise with SkillOnNet’s cutting-edge iGaming solutions to create a best-in-class online gaming platform that seeks to become the foremost player in the Greek market.
With a focus on excellence and adherence to local regulations, the venture will navigate the complex Greek regulatory landscape to deliver an innovative, responsible and superior gaming experience.
SkillOnNet is a global entertainment brand that operates more than 30 online casinos in regulated markets across the globe including PlayOJO, Lucky Niki and Spin Genie. The new deal is the third major partnership between the company and a leading land-based operator in the last two years after Genting UK and Buenos Aires Slots in Argentina.
Regency Entertainment, a leader in Greece’s entertainment landscape, is renowned for its comprehensive portfolio of entertainment destinations. This includes the iconic Regency Casino Mont Parnes in Athens and the multi-faceted Regency Casino complex alongside the Hyatt Regency Hotel and the Vergina Theatre in Thessaloniki. Currently, the group is advancing plans for an innovative destination in Athens’ northern suburbs. This project is envisioned as a multifunctional hub, blending gaming, diverse entertainment options and hospitality services.
“SkillOnNet and Regency Entertainment share the same vision and values when it comes to innovation in the entertainment space,” the Corporate Development Senior Vice-President for SkillOnNet, Maor Nutkevitch, said. “This is a fantastic opportunity for us to leverage Regency Entertainment’s incredible reputation and impeccable track record in the industry to build something special that will offer players a safe and enjoyable gaming experience. The management team at Regency Entertainment is second to none and it has been a pleasure to work with them. We’re looking forward to enjoying a close and fruitful relationship for many years to come.”
“We aim to provide a top-tier digital entertainment experience that reflects the excellence of our physical venues,” the Chief Executive Officer for Regency Entertainment, Yiannis Tsirikos, said. “Partnering with SkillOnNet, we’re enhancing our offerings including refined online gaming experiences. Its proven ability to create unique and dynamic online platforms supports our vision of offering a sophisticated yet subtly integrated online gaming dimension within our diverse digital portfolio.”
Eric André and Opera GX bury boring browsers in chaotic rampage
Are you still using that generic, boring, weak-featured browser that came pre-installed on your laptop or device? Then run for cover, because Opera GX – the browser for gamers – and Eric André, comedian, actor and host of The Eric Andre Show, are on a rampage to bury boring browsers once and for all.
In an exclusive new video, an ax-wielding Eric Andre mashes and smashes his way through the most uninspiring, outdated browsers on the internet. Does Eric’s chaotic cull put your current browser in a body bag? Find out in the Bury Boring video, here.
“Pre-installed browsers are the worst. They’re clunky, un-customizable resource hogs that come already loaded on everyone’s desktops and devices – basically, the antithesis of Opera GX. This campaign, by way of Eric André, inspires you to question whether the browser you’re using is actually good or just some BS your system tray inherited. Our money is on the latter,” said Auryn Hiscock, Creative Lead, Opera GX.
Benny Bentham, Creative Director, Waste Creative, added: “The “Bury Boring” concept set out to take an axe to boring browsers. And a chainsaw. And a hammer. And we did it by putting Eric’s anarchic personality front and centre to land our message. The film is horror -anarchy- lols-weirdness all rolled into one. Just like Eric. And the result is anything but boring.”
Compared to Eric’s body bag of boring browsers, Opera GX manifests a variety of next-level features that would put any other generic browser to shame. These include enhanced customization options as well as features like GX Corner, which provides quick access to gaming news, deals, and releases. From improvements such as faster web loading and the ability to control system resources like CPU, RAM, and network usage, to the integration of apps like Discord, Twitch, Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, Telegram, and Instagram, users are afforded a truly seamless multitasking experience free of annoying lags and other hindrances of older, stale browsers. In short, Opera GX takes your current browser and stomps it into the dirt.
Far from boring, Opera GX allows users to completely customize their entire browsing experience by transforming the way Opera GX looks, sounds, and behaves with various unique and visually appealing MODS with their own sound and video effects. Plus, users ready to join Eric as he bashes and mashes his way through everything boring can check out the custom “GX Man” MOD – a unique browser customization based on Eric Andre’s “GX Man” character. Available free on the GX store, the MOD reflects Eric’s unique style and zero tolerance for boring. With his ax and sledge hammer, GX Man Eric is hell bent on burying all that is boring.
