Stockholm, 11th July 2018 – Swedish slots specialist Quickspin, a Playtech Group company, has introduced one of the highest bet win multipliers in the industry with the launch of Eastern Emeralds.

The 1680x bet win multiplier will give players the chance to choose from a range of different free spin options. Those with fewer spins will carry a higher risk, but equally have the potential for a higher win.

The debut of Eastern Emeralds, which offers a design set in the heart of the Asian wilderness, follows the release of several successful titles this year, including Pirates’ Charm, Volcano Riches, Northern Sky and Mighty Arthur.

Daniel Lindberg, CEO, Quickspin, said: “We were inspired to create Eastern Emeralds by the symbols and aesthetics of ancient Asia and the result is a beautiful game.

The inclusion of one of the highest-ever multipliers also reinforces our commitment to offering players a unique gaming experience, as well as an attractive looking one.

Founded in 2011, Quickspin has 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 seen the company sign agreements with a long list of leading operators.

DUBLIN, LOS ANGELES, and TORONTO, July 16, 2018 /CNW/ – QYOU Media (TSXV: QYOU OTC: QYOUF) today announces it has extended the reach of its HUD format by introducing HeadsUpDailyTV on IGTV, Instagram’s TV platform launched in June 2018. IGTV aims to deliver long-form formats optimized for mobile viewing to its user base of 1 billion. HUD’s launch on the platform dramatically bolsters its global reach, allowing millennial and Gen-Z audiences to access the best esports entertainment and news on-the-go wherever and whenever.

Launched last year, HUD is the destination for all things relating to esports and video game culture and already reaches 500,000 viewers. Each daily episode of HUD includes an exciting line-up of guests – from esports professionals to game developers and popular streamers on YouTube and Twitch – to discuss tournament recaps, esports top plays, and all of the hot topics in the world of gaming. New episodes will be available on IGTV each weekday in a vertical video format that can be easily watched from mobile devices.

Esports has exploded in recent years and is estimated to reach an audience of 427 million globally by 2019. Popular with millennial and Gen-Z audiences, under-35s make up 73 percent of all global esports fans. The new HeadsUpDailyTV channel launches ahead of the largest global esports tournament – The International Dota 2 Championships – which takes place in August, 2018.

Curt Marvis, CEO and Co-Founder of QYOU Media, commented: “Esports is a growing phenomenon and one that HUD has a leading edge on as one of the major sources of entertainment and news surrounding the players and tournaments. HUD is most popular with younger, mobile-first audiences and therefore bringing the format to channels like IGTV is crucial to expanding the audience reach. Instagram just hit 1 billion active users this month, providing huge potential to grow the HUD audience and drive sponsorship opportunities in the future.”

International betting on Hong Kong racing increases by 150% as total turnover soars to £12bn

 

Monday 16th July, 2018 – Zac Purton sealed the Hong Kong jockeys’ title on Sunday on a day that saw turnover rise to £186.4m (HK$1.938m), the highest ever for an 11-race card, while commingling for the day set a record at £32.2m (HK$335m).

Turnover for the 2017/18 season of £11.9bn (HK$124.2bn) represents a 5.8% increase year-on-year, while the total amount wagered with commingling partners reached £1.6bn (HK$16.5 billion); a massive increase of 154.8% on last season’s £625m (HK$6.5bn).

Commingling turnover, which includes everything bet into the HK pools from foreign territories, on the season’s final day came in at £32.2m, around the same amount that the UK wagers on each day of Royal Ascot.

The total turnover for the season, £11.9bn, is almost three times the amount bet on racing in the UK, where last season’s figure came in at £4.3bn (HK$44.8bn).

Mr. Winfried Engelbrecht-Bresges, Chief Executive Officer at the Hong Kong Jockey Club, said: “We are delighted with another record season, one of our most exciting seasons both on and off the track. That excitement reached a thrilling climax on Sunday, with Zac Purton holding off Joao Moreira’s final push to win the jockeys’ championship. As well as great sport, we also had record turnover for an 11-race meeting, despite receiving 35 millimetres of rain, and that shows the enthusiasm for our product.

“Commingling is quickly changing the global landscape and that is seen in the fact that it made up 13.3 percent of our season’s turnover this year compared to 5.5 percent last year. Today, we reached a new record of HK$335 million for a single race meeting, a truly extraordinary mark. It is now a significant driver to Hong Kong’s turnover and that is due to the ever-increasing international interest in our racing product, which is proving to be attractive as an exciting sports option founded upon the highest integrity.”

Alessandro Fried takes center stage at AI Malta Summit
Reading Time: 2 minutes

BtoBet’s Chairman Alessandro Fried attended the AI Malta Summit where together with a panel of leading experts from the iGaming industry he discussed the various benefits and applications of Artificial Intelligence in the industry.

The panel discussed the importance of this disruptive form of technology at an industry level, with Fried giving his insight on how fundamental a role AI can have in all stages of the iGaming industry, from acquisition to retention and reactivation of players, and how AI can be an asset when it comes to the operator’s daily activities whilst also safeguarding the players’ interests.

Fried also gave his insight on the various challenges that see the industry still lagging behind other sectors. He opined that this is primarily due to the reluctant approach from the major operators to change their mentality and truly endorse Artificial Intelligence at the core of their business not only for their own benefit, but essentially for a better player experience.

  • Personalization through data acquisition and analytics;
  • AI as the core tool for an optimal Omnichannel;
  • AI in the prevention of gambling addiction;
  • AI in risk management
