The rapidly-growing technology business has taken over from Vodafone and signed up to support this annual event for the next five years.

 

18/04/2018, St. Julian’s / Malta – When one of the world’s leading iGaming companies officially inaugurated its new headquarters in Malta this year, its CEO and founder Robin Reed stressed that they wanted to become a bigger part of the local community. Now, underlining that promise, GiG – also Gaming Innovation Group – is set to sponsor one of the island’s largest annual sporting events – the Malta Marathon. The event will now be known as the GiG Malta Marathon.

We are extremely proud to have partnered up with the Malta Marathon,” says GiG COO and General Manager for Malta, Mikael Angman. “We employ many young people, Maltese and foreign. Lots of us identify with this event and look forward to supporting it, while also embracing the challenge of taking part in whatever way we can. In fact, I am sure that many of our team members will be out there, running and racing, on the day.

The Malta Marathon first began in 1986, when it was founded by Joe Micallef. Back then, 50 Maltese and 59 international participants took part. Those numbers are completely different now, with over 2,000 Maltese and 3,000 international participants joining the 2018 race.

Speaking today, Mr Micallef said he was elated to have GiG as the Marathon’s new main sponsor, as he believes this development will enable the project to grow even bigger and better.

It is going to be a big challenge for GiG to follow in the footsteps of the other top brands that have supported us in the past, namely Flora, BMW, Land Rover and Vodafone; they have each contributed to the success of the Malta Marathon so far. But we have no doubt that GiG will bring a whole new energy and dynamism to the race. Despite the logistical challenges faced by the fact Malta is such a small country, we believe the 2019 GiG Malta Marathon will be another milestone event for everyone involved. We cannot wait to get our running shoes on.

Echoing that sentiment, Mr Angman underlined his commitment to making the Malta Marathon a major part of GiG’s future on the island. “We look forward to crafting fantastic activities and to breaking records when it comes to the ever-growing number of people taking part in this national event. Who knows? We may well get all of Malta running yet!” the COO adds.

Applications for the GiG Malta Marathon 2019 will open on 1 October 2018. Please follow the GiG Malta Marathon Facebook page for news and updates.

Experience the high-stakes and free-wheeling spirit of Las Vegas with the new Vegas Royale Super Wheel slot from Stakelogic

Get ready for the bright-light city to set your soul on fire like never before with the exciting Vegas Royale Super Wheel slot game from Stakelogic. Players are invited to hit the Vegas Strip and spin the reels in this innovative Vegas adventure loaded with bonus features, including Stakelogic’s game-changing Super Wheel.

Prepare for a thrilling slice of Vegas action on a five-reel, three-row game grid, with 20 paylines active on every spin. The game presents the opportunity for huge wins of up to 10,000x the player’s stake, an eye-watering total that even Vegas’s highest rollers would be proud of.

The Sin City is famous for its spellbinding magic tricks, and the slot conjures up some tricks of its own, thanks to an exciting Free Spins bonus. Landing three Bonus symbols will grant players access to the round. The game presents two exciting options: one will allow you to spin eight rollers to determine the number of Free Spins with random Multiplier Sticky Wilds, while the other grants five rollers to determine the number of Free Spins with Progressive Multiplier Sticky Wilds.

Vegas is the city that never sleeps, so the fun doesn’t end there! During the round, you can trigger the Free Spins Level Up feature, boosting the progressive Sticky Wilds with up to 5x Multipliers and providing huge winning opportunities.

Keep your eyes peeled for the Super Wheel Bonus symbol as landing three of these will transport players from the Vegas Strip to a live studio, where they will spin the Super Wheel! This trademark feature from Stakelogic combines the excitement of online slots with the thrill of a live casino setting, offering the chance to win big money prizes or trigger one of four further bonuses.

Before the round starts, players will play a creative Super Wheel Pick mini bonus where they flip tiles to determine the size of the Multiplier that will be active during the Super Wheel.

Daniela Fricchione, Head of Account Management at Stakelogic, said: There is no place on earth quite like Las Vegas, and with Vegas Royale, we wanted to capture the city’s heart-pounding excitement in a new and captivating way.

By combining the Vegas theme with our Super Wheel feature in a single experience, we have created a slot experience unlike anything on the market. We cannot wait to watch our audience spin the reels for the first time and be whisked away to the Vegas Strip.
