Monday 26th February 2018 – West Ham duo Javier Hernandez and Michail Antonio put their feet in David Moyes’s shoes as they took their first steps into the world of coaching in part two of the Betway Esports Challenge.

After going head-to-head in a game of CS:GO in part one, Hernandez and Antonio got GeT_RiGhT and f0rest – two stars of leading esports team Ninjas in Pyjamas – to put down their mouse and keyboard and lace up their boots for a very different type of shooting practice.

The Challenge required GeT_RiGhT and f0rest to team up with their coaches and shoot footballs at cardboard cut-outs of West Ham players, with the most points awarded for hitting the targets that were furthest away.

The Betway Esports Challenge, which was hosted by BBC presenter OJ Borg, marks the first time a football club and esports team have ever collaborated.

Betway have been the headline sponsor of Ninjas in Pyjamas – known as ‘NiP’ to supporters – since September 2016.

NiP are legends in the world of esports. They have won the IEM Oakland – one of CS:GO’s most prestigious tournaments – two years running and earned almost £2million in prize money.

CS:GO is one of the leading esports titles and, like the Premier League, is watched by millions of fans around the world.

To find out how Hernandez and Antonio got on in the first challenge, watch part one of the Betway Esports Challenge HERE.

Friday, July 13; 2018, Malta – A homage to AC/DC’s famous road song, Wazdan’s Highway to Hell Deluxe hits the market ahead of iGB Live! celebrating the “living free” embodied in the song penned by Angus Young, Malcolm Young and Bon Scott. “Like a wheel, gonna spin it” pretty much sums up this piece of entertainment from Wazdan’s studios, who are cranking out hit after raucous hit across this summer.

Highway to Hell Deluxe is a 5-reel 5-payline slot bursting with Expanding Wilds and a Wall Bonus feature allowing players to multiply their wins by up to x5. In the thrilling Gamble feature, players can meet frisky blonde and ginger angels on their easy riders that coast down the highway. The highway sizzles with fun, and Wazdan’s ground-breaking technology sets the player experience at full from the first spin. The Unique Wazdan Features, that include the world’s first Volatility Levels™, Energy Saving Mode, Double Screen Mode and Unique Gamble Feature are a central element to deliver Wazdan’s HTML5 slots for mobile, tablet and desktop.

The themed paytable brings familiar Route 666 symbols such as the Roadie, Biker Girl, Truck and each plays a key role in the excitement. A powerful red truck is the Wild and a substitute for any missing symbol. With Double Screen Mode players can see the pay table and win values of all game symbols in portrait during gameplay, even on a mobile telephone, and be in control of their wins at all time. This new technology provides players with a quality of entertainment that matches the standards that they have come to expect in other environments.

Head of Sales at Wazdan Andrzej Hyla said: “Rock music, no limits, and multipliers are at the heart of the gaming experience in Highway to Hell Deluxe. It’s among the new-breed of innovative, fast-moving Wazdan games which have taken the industry by storm. When it comes to delivering some of the best content in the industry, we know our players enjoy bold and striking games like Highway to Hell Deluxe, and that operators have understood our Passion for Games on top of that. We are going to exhibit at iGB Live! 2018 in Amsterdam with a willingness to present our product to an appreciative audience and to reach more global partners.”

Wazdan’s portfolio of over 100 HTML5 slots is growing rapidly following a further 9 game releases since May 30, a prolific number of releases in a very short time. Apart from Highway to Hell Deluxe, recent releases include Sizzling 777 Deluxe, Hot Party Deluxe, Corrida Romance Deluxe, Fruit Mania Deluxe, Football Mania Deluxe, and two magic games: Great Book of Magic Deluxe and Magic of the Ring Deluxe. These are the kinds of products that partners like EveryMatrix, Videoslots, SlotMillions, Tipbet, Iforium, iSoftbet, Evenbets and Globalplay, amongst others, value and Wazdan aims to keep delivering exciting games like this for all their partner operators and players. Wazdan will be on stand T20 at iGB Live!
