Malta, 5 July 2018 Play’n GO want you to have the purr-fect time playing classic slot Cats and Cash, so it has been upgraded for even more fun and entertainment.

This game-show themed 5-reel slot has been a staple of the Play’n GO library since its release in 2012, and now it has been updated for 2018 by converting to HTML5.

CEO Johan Törnqvist believes it is important to maintain the company’s historical offerings, but also create new titles for the industry to enjoy.

He said: “We are making sure our partners and their players can continue to supply and enjoy all their favourite games, past and present. It’s important to look forward, but we don’t want to leave too much behind. Having just been awarded EGR Slot Provider of the Year, we have to make sure we continue to raise the high bar we’ve set for ourselves.

“We believe it’s important to continue focusing on the quality of our entire portfolio, and this is why we have updated Cats and Cash, to make sure the players have the best possible experience with the games that have helped us reach the position we find ourselves in today.”

Similarly, a bespoke trading strategy and non-pooled risk management powered by unrivalled levels of automation will allow Golden Nugget Casinos to offer unique pricing for all US sports.

As the undisputed pacesetter in the in-play arena, SBTech’s live offering, especially in US sports, will reinforce the long-term success of Golden Nugget’s sportsbooks, with the industry’s widest range of events and markets and groundbreaking new mobile-first features such as Pulse Bet (patent pending) and Action Betting expected to boost in-play turnover from key demographics.

SBTech CEO Richard Carter said: “I’m very pleased to confirm our latest strategic partnership with a major US operator. Golden Nugget fully shares our vision of leveraging the power of innovation to achieve sports betting success, and as the US market matures, I’m confident of the potential for further collaboration in multiple jurisdictions.”

“Since sports betting is a critical component of our successful expansion for online betting and gaming in the US, SBTech persisted through our arduous review process,” said Thomas Winter, SVP & GM, Online Gaming at Golden Nugget. “In the end, we knew SBTech was the right partner for us because of its industry-leading retail and online technology, their significant and diverse regulatory experience as well as its innovative product-driven approach.”

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Company’s GameSense program is already transforming how the industry promotes responsible gambling

 

CLEVELAND, July, 2018  — MGM Resorts International was honored with the National Council on Problem Gambling’s (NCPG) Corporate Social Responsibility Award Friday at the organization’s 32nd National Conference on problem gambling in Cleveland.

The award – which recognizes an organization that demonstrates an outstanding commitment to social responsibility related to problem gambling – was presented in recognition of the company’s ground-breaking responsible gambling program: GameSense. Launched nationwide at MGM Resorts’ properties late last year, GameSense integrates responsible gambling education and support into the company’s industry-leading guest service culture. It’s all designed to help guests make informed decisions and keep gambling fun.

“We are thrilled to receive this honor from the National Council on Problem Gambling and can’t thank them enough for the incredible work they do in raising awareness in the problem gambling community,” said MGM Resorts Chairman & CEO Jim Murren. “GameSense has been a tremendous success and is already transforming the way the industry approaches responsible gambling. MGM Resorts is at the forefront of driving the conversation and culture around this important issue, and GameSense ensures responsible gambling education is at the heart of our guest service model at every one of our casinos – worldwide.”

NCPG Executive Director Keith Whyte added that his organization is pleased to recognize MGM Resort’s innovation and leadership with GameSense with its Corporate Social Responsibility Award.

“We’re so proud to congratulate MGM Resorts on this achievement,” Whyte said. “Their steadfast support, innovation and leadership in taking GameSense companywide has set the standard in the casino industry. They have raised the bar considerably and – most importantly – greatly benefited their employees and customers.”

GameSense comes alive through personal interactions between guests and trained staff based at each property’s M life Rewards desk. In addition to speaking to trained employees, guests are also utilizing interactive GameSense touchscreens and picking up educational materials and other resources. This unprecedented commitment to integrating responsible gambling education into the company’s entire guest service model is unlike anything the industry has seen before.

Alan Feldman, Executive Vice President of Global Industry Affairs, said the response to the company’s responsible gambling efforts has been outstanding, adding that guests and employees alike have enjoyed and benefited from having positive, open and proactive conversations about how to gamble responsibly.

“In less than a year, GameSense has sparked more than 350,000 positive conversations and interactions with guests, and the numbers continue to grow at an unprecedented rate. With GameSense, MGM Resorts has expanded and enhanced the scope of responsible gambling culture beyond anything the industry has ever seen,” Feldman said. “The program’s goal of building stronger and more sustainable guest relationships has been incredibly successful, and we look forward to driving the conversation and integrating this program wherever our company operates.”

ABOUT GAMESENSE
Integrated nationwide by MGM Resorts in late 2017, GameSense enhances awareness and education about responsible gambling for players and guests and, in doing so, raising the standards within the industry. The program was developed by the BCLC, British Columbia’s provincial gambling corporation and encourages players to adopt behaviors and attitudes that reduce the risk of developing gambling disorders. This includes setting and sticking to personally allocated time and monetary limits for gambling, as well as being open and honest with family, friends and oneself when it comes to personal gambling habits.

GameSense has earned international recognition such as the World Lottery Association’s Best Overall Responsible Gambling Program (2010), and the U.S.- based National Council on Problem Gambling’s Social Responsibility Award (2015). In addition to being licensed at MGM Resorts casino properties, the program has been implemented by Connecticut Lottery, the Massachusetts Gaming Commission and Canadian provinces Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba.
