Reading Time: 2 minutes

Sky Vegas has been announced as the headline sponsor of The Fortune Hotel, a brand new ITV1 reality entertainment show hosted by comic actor, Stephen Mangan, and produced by Tuesday’s Child.

The new series, set in a five-star resort in the Caribbean, is a gripping new format which sees contestants work in pairs to compete against other hotel guests and get their hands on a briefcase containing a life changing amount of money.

10 pairs of contestants will arrive at The Fortune Hotel, where they will be given an all-important briefcase. Inside one case is the ultimate jackpot of £250,000 in cash, while eight are empty, and one contains the dreaded Early Checkout Card – whichever pair is left holding that case at the end of each show will see their stay brought to a dramatic, premature end.

​​G​uests will attempt to figure out who is in possession of the cash case, whilst trying to keep the contents of their own a secret, and viewers will be treated to a blend of suspense, subterfuge and glamour as the duos compete over eight episodes.

Airing on Monday 13 May on ITV1 and ITVX (and STV in Scotland), Sky Vegas’ sponsorship includes 80” of accreditations per episode, spanning Monday-Thursday over a two-week period.

The ​​​​sponsorship deal also includes 10” bumpers around free programme streaming ​ ​content on the ITVX and STV Player, including website and mobile ​​apps*.

​​​Sky Vegas also has rights to include The Fortune Hotel logo and reference to the sponsorship across​ their own​ platforms​,​ including website and social media.

Commenting on the sponsorship, a Sky Vegas ​​spokesperson said: “​The F​ortune ​​Hotel has the potential to be the next big TV hit, and we are incredibly excited that we are going to be a part of this new show with ITV.

“Our customers enjoy fun and entertaining games, so this sponsorship opportunity just made sense. We’re looking forward to watching the show and enjoying all of its twists and turns with the rest of the ​​​​nation.”

Bhav Chandrani, Director of BE Studios, added: “It’s brilliant to be bringing a brand new format to screens and The Fortune Hotel is real shout-at-the-telly fun. It’s going to be full of twists and turns as we get to watch the gameplay unfold.”

New name. New logo. Same great affiliate.

Today marks the day of the official launch of GiG Media’s rebrand following the announcement of the spinoff from Gaming Innovation Group (GiG) platform and sportsbook.

We are pleased to announce that GiG Media has undergone a rebranding process in light of the spinoff and it’s thereof with great enthusiasm that we present our new independent brand, Gentoo Media.

The company will from now on be trademarked under Gentoo Media, and will operate under the name Gentoo.

Whilst introducing our new company name, along with our new logo and visual identity we ensure that Gentoo remains the same great affiliate, with the same great people, and the same great brands that we have become recognised for.

The rebrand marks a significant milestone in the company’s history in becoming a stand alone business in the second half of 2024*, continuing our track record of dominating the iGaming affiliate market with 13 successive quarters with all-time high revenue and strong EBITDA-margin reaching 48% in the last quarter.

Gentoo will continue to focus on our unwavering commitment to deliver superior results, growth and sustainable long-term partnerships, ensuring our partners that with Gentoo, you get more.

Our new company name Gentoo Media pays a tribute to GiG Media’s Rebel Penguin heritage, as Gentoo is an Antarctic penguin species known for prospering by coming together as a unit to survive and thrive. Gentoo further symbolises the next generation of the company’s legacy, opening a new chapter while continuing our path as a market leading affiliate, shaping the future of affiliation.

GiG Media will from today be found under a new array of assets under the Gentoo brand.

“The launch of our new brand is a big milestone for us in the process of separating GiG Media from Gaming Innovation Group. Gentoo has been created with all our partners and employees in mind, ensuring to communicate an accurate and genuine view of ourselves, the business and what we stand for and believe in. The launch of Gentoo marks a new era and we couldn’t be more excited for the future prospects of the business.” – Jonas Warrer, CEO

“The rebrand of GiG Media marks a pivotal moment in the separation of Gaming Innovation Group into two independent businesses, and is a vital step in the process of increasing shareholder value. The launch of Gentoo is a testament to the organisation’s dedication in delivering superior quality and results in every aspect of the business, and is setting the company off to a great start.” – Mikael Harstad, Chairman of the Board
