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.

In a letter to federal lawmakers, American Gaming Association (AGA) President and CEO Geoff Freeman reiterated the gaming industry’s top priorities in the evolving debate on how to create a successful legal sports betting market in the United States.

Following last week’s momentous U.S. Supreme Court decision ending the federal sports betting ban, the casino gaming industry is dedicated to building the world’s most secure and successful sports betting system. As legal, regulated sport betting expands across the country, AGA and the gaming industry will work with all stakeholders who share our commitment to eliminating the vast illegal gaming market.

Below are the priorities the gaming industry will pursue:

  • Empower State Regulation: More than 40 states and 260 jurisdictions have proven to be effective gaming regulators. AGA will be a resource to state policymakers and regulators as they consider sports betting legalization. AGA will also combat any attempts by the federal government to neuter state regulatory power.
  • Place Consumers First: AGA encourages all stakeholders to understand the intricacies of the illegal marketplace and why consumers turn to it. AGA will promote strong consumer protections – which the illegal market fails to offer – and consumer-centric conveniences such as intrastate mobile wagering.
  • Strengthen Game Integrity: Rigorous sports betting regulation strengthens game integrity, a primary aim shared by the gaming industry and sporting bodies. New technologies make it possible to track legal wagering and identify suspicious activities. The gaming industry supports establishing a national data repository to share any suspicious betting information with law enforcement, gaming regulators and sporting bodies.Promote
  • Responsible Gaming and Responsible Advertising: The gaming industry encourages effective responsible gaming programs in all jurisdictions that enact regulated sports betting. To this end, the gaming industry will voluntarily pursue the creation of a self-regulatory model to guide sports betting advertising.
  • Encourage Contracts over Statutes: Sports betting can benefit sporting bodies and gaming companies alike. The gaming industry supports strong contracts between these parties to address issues such as data and the value of other activities. The gaming industry will vigorously oppose efforts to use federal or state legislation to set basic business terms.

The front-end platform is what the customers meet when entering LeoVegas.com. The technology creates new and improved opportunities for LeoVegas to offer the best, fastest and most innovative mobile gaming experience.

“We are investing further in state-of-the-art technology in order to continuously develop the customer experience and to create conditions for strong growth. Together with our back-end platform, Rhino, we are maintaining our technological lead in the industry and continue to be the leading GameTech company by working with world class technology,” comments Gustaf Hagman, Group CEO of LeoVegas.

The platform offers wide range of benefits which demonstrate LeoVegas’ position as the leading GameTech company:

  • The platform enables faster loading times and thus a better customer experience.

  • The platform strengthens LeoVegas’ reputation as an attractive employer by staying at the forefront and offering modern, advanced technology.
  • The new front-end platform is accelerating development and creating greater flexibility for developers, and thus also a future-proof technology for many years to come.
  • The platform can be used across the entire LeoVegas Mobile Gaming Group.

 

The new platform has been gradually introduced during the last month and is currently live in all markets served by LeoVegas.com.
