Stockholm, 13th February 2018 – Swedish slots specialist Quickspin, a Playtech Group company, has launched its most visually stunning slot to date with its latest release, Northern Sky.

Set against the backdrop of a snowy Scandinavian landscape, the vibrant and colourful northern lights brighten up the sky with an avalanche of wins up for grabs.

The game features animal-shaped symbols made of crystals, which glisten in the night sky when triggered.

The picturesque 5×3 slot with nine paylines features re-spins on all wins, plus a free spins bonus using only the high paying animal symbols.

Northern Sky has been developed in HTML5 to ensure the best possible graphics, and is accompanied by an immersive soundtrack.

Quickspin CEO, Daniel Lindberg, said: “Northern Sky is one of our most spectacular slot releases yet, the graphics are just incredible.

“We’re certain players will appreciate the beautiful scenery, while the bonus rounds and free spins are sure to be an attractive proposition for them.”

The new HTML5 slot follows hot on the heels of recent releases Pied Piper, Mighty Arthur and Mayana, joing a growing stable of proven revenue generators.

Founded in 2011, Quickspin rapidly established itself as a leading development studio for real money and social casino gaming and was acquired by Playtech in March 2016.

Now licensed in multiple jurisdictions, its award-winning content has helped the company sign agreements with a long list of leading operators.

Leading online bookmaker becomes race day sponsor at top Scottish racecourse

 

Leading online bookmaker Betway has been announced as the sponsor of Musselburgh Racecourse’s prestigious New Year’s Day race day.

The key fixture in the East Lothian track’s jumps season attracts a crowd of 5,000 racegoers and two races, both to be sponsored by Betway, will be broadcast live as part of ITV’s festive racing package which is anchored from Cheltenham.

The bookmaker will sponsor the feature races on the day, each valued at £30,000, the Betway Auld Reekie Steeple Chase and Betway Hogmaneigh Hurdle, as well as the remainder of the card.

It will also have naming and branding rights to the January 1 meeting and branding opportunities at two other Musselburgh fixtures on January 7 and 18.

Betway’s Alan Alger said: “With racing sponsorships already in place across England and in Ireland, we’re delighted to now be expanding into Scotland.

“Musselburgh has a deep and rich history of racing and we’re very pleased to be a part of its future, starting with a cracking day’s racing on New Year’s Day. With £30,000 up for grabs in both the Betway Auld Reekie Chase and the Betway Hogmaneigh Hurdle, and the ITV Racing cameras in attendance, hopefully we’ll see some hotly-contested renewals.”

Musselburgh Racecourse’s senior operations and commercial manager, Sarah Montgomery, said: “Our New Year’s Day meeting grows year-on-year and is now established as an important fixture in the UK racing calendar. We are delighted to secure the support of leading industry brand Betway and look forward to establishing a long-term mutually beneficial relationship.

“We have made significant investment in recent years to improve the raceday experience by introducing luxury marquees, top class entertainment and high quality locally sourced food and drinks suppliers, which all contributes to making New Year at Musselburgh an unforgettable way to welcome in the year.

“This exciting new partnership with Betway means we can crack on with our plans to strengthen the New Year’s Day meeting by improving the quality of racing on the track and enhancing the quality of off-track facilities and entertainment.”

GameOn, A First-Of-Its-Kind, Free, Zero-Risk Sports Betting App With Real Cash Prizes, Available For Download Today

GameOn’s 100% FREE App Allows Sports Fans of all Levels – Casual & Hardcore – to Compete, Watch and Win Prizes of up to $1 Million During LIVE Sports

 

Available on the App Store and Google Play, GameOn App Inc. has launched GameOn – a new and free way for fans to compete, watch and win during live sports! FREE to play with real cash prizes of up to $1 Million!

To celebrate Thanksgiving and Americans love of football, GameOn will give away a $1 million prize for Perfect Picks across all three Thanksgiving NFL games. Any players who get all picks right, including the game winners and first touchdown scorers, will take home a share of the $1 Million prize!

GameOn takes the free-to-play model of trivia apps and applies it to the sports world with game predictions. Unlike fantasy and gambling, GameOn is simple and completely free. No player drafting or hard-to-understand points systems.

Just three simple steps:

Before the game
Make picks from player and team-related questions. For example, “Who will win?”, “Who will score the first touchdown?” and “Who will hit the most three-pointers?”

During the game
Accumulate points for each correct pick. The riskier the picks, the more points up for grabs!

After the game
Fans with the most points wins cash and brand partner prizes. A tie-break question will split winners if multiple fans finish equal, so no $0.80 grand prizes like trivia apps.

GameOn’s free platform is also designed to be social, connecting you with other fans in your circle. The app features a group chat and leaderboard where you can follow, engage and keep tabs on how friends are tracking for bragging rights.

A recent GameOn player, Gabriel from Brooklyn NY, won $1,000 on his first time trying the app. Gabriel commented: “I played after a good friend of mine referred the app to me, and the experience was great. Real-time updates on the score, and being able to chat with other app users throughout the game was pretty cool, too.”

“We’re shaking up the sports and betting industries by providing a completely free and legal way for all sports fans – even casual” said Matt Bailey, Founder and CEO of GameOn App Inc. “We’re removing the barriers that casual fans experience when engaging in fantasy and gambling. GameOn is free, intuitive and riskless, with real cash prizes up for grabs thanks to our partnerships with major brands.”

GameOn’s exclusively advertiser-funded gameplay means no risk for players, only rewards, including real cash. Burger King and Motorola are the first brands to integrate the app as strategic partners, offering cash prizes and rewarding products – such as free Burger King menu items and Motorola devices. GameOn has also partnered with Global Sports Data Leader, Sportradar, as part of their Acceleradar program, leveraging their stats and scores data, as well as their relationships with major sports leagues.

In just two weeks since launching, GameOn has driven more than 5,000 installs, with 1,500+ playing in each game who’ve won a total of more than $10,000. The demographic is predominantly millennial, with 25% being female – significantly higher than seen in fantasy and gambling, and a testament to the casual fan-friendly gameplay.
