Swintt prepares to go nuts in Max the Winner
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Popular software provider’s new woodland-themed slot sees players go foraging in a free spins feature where acorn upgrades can lead to huge instant-win prizes

With spring almost upon us, innovative casino software supplier, Swintt, has announced it will be embarking on a wild journey through the heart of nature in Max the Winner – an all-new slot adventure where free spins with acorn upgrades can lead to huge prizes.

Played out across a 5×3 gameboard with 10 fixed paylines, this woodland-themed release features all manner of cute critters across its reels, with the magnificent kingfisher acting as the slot’s highest paying icon and plucky Max the squirrel making an appearance in the bonus round.

Guaranteed to trigger whenever three acorn scatter symbols stop in view – but also potentially activating at random whenever one appears – this fun free spins feature sees the magic of nature come to life as players are transported to a new set of reels that features only coins and acorns.

It’s here that the titular Max will arrive to help players make some money. Starting as a single-space symbol, the sneaky squirrel will shuffle around the reels collecting any acorns that appear over the course of their initial five free spins, growing in size once a set number have been stored.

Once Max has been suitably stuffed, further free spins will be awarded and players will benefit from the fact that any coin symbols that stop in his reel spaces will be collected as an instant-win prize – potentially enabling them to claim significant free spins wins of up 2,100x their initial bet.

Of course, players not wishing to wait to enter the free spins round during the base game have the option use the slot’s “Buy Feature Games” button to earn themselves instant access, and all winnings collected throughout any of their spins can also be gambled in an optional Risk feature.

David Mann, Chief Executive Officer at Swintt, said: “With the sun starting to poke out and new flowers beginning to bloom, now’s the perfect time to go foraging for free spins in Max the Winner – the new SwinttPremium slot that will soon have players going nuts for its huge instant-win prizes!”

Melco Announces Unaudited Fourth Quarter 2023 Earnings
Reading Time: 7 minutes

 

Melco Resorts & Entertainment Limited, a developer, owner, and operator of integrated resort facilities in Asia and Europe, today reported its unaudited financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2023.

Total operating revenues for the fourth quarter of 2023 were US$1.09 billion, representing an increase of approximately 224% from US$337.1 million for the comparable period in 2022. The increase in total operating revenues was primarily attributable to the improved performance in all gaming segments and non-gaming operations following the relaxation of COVID-19 related restrictions in Macau in January 2023 and the opening of Studio City Phase 2.

Operating loss for the fourth quarter of 2023 was US$94.4 million, compared with operating loss of US$199.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2022.

Melco generated Adjusted Property EBITDA(1) of US$303.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2023, compared with negative Adjusted Property EBITDA of US$6.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2022.

Net loss attributable to Melco Resorts & Entertainment Limited for the fourth quarter of 2023 was US$156.6 million, or US$0.36 per ADS, compared with US$251.9 million, or US$0.57 per ADS, in the fourth quarter of 2022. Net loss attributable to noncontrolling interests was US$20.8 million and US$42.1 million during the fourth quarters of 2023 and 2022, respectively, all of which were related to Studio City, City of Dreams Manila, and City of Dreams Mediterranean and Other.

Mr. Lawrence Ho, our Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “Macau continues to demonstrate its extraordinary growth potential and has shown resilience despite China’s uncertain macro-economic outlook. Visitations to Macau during this month’s Chinese New Year holiday period were close to 2019 levels and the number of visitors from China exceeded 2019.

“2023 was a year of post-pandemic recovery and the debut of our new developments, including City of Dreams Mediterranean and Studio City Phase 2. 2024 is set to be another exciting year for us as we continue to develop new ideas and strategies to bring market leading leisure and entertainment offerings to our customers.

“As part of our initiatives to ensure Melco is leading the market in all areas of our business, we are making changes to management in Macau and bolstering the leadership team. We expect these changes will strengthen us as a team to secure a stronger and more competitive future.

“City of Dreams Manila in the Philippines has continued to show solid growth with significant market share gains in mass table games and slots. City of Dreams Mediterranean in Cyprus continues to be impacted by the conflicts in the region but is starting to show some signs of recovery so far this year.”
