Blockchain platform provider launches new ‘wheel of fortune’ game

 

Blockchain casino platform provider FunFair Technologies is bringing the circus to town with its latest title Wheel of Fun – Fairground.

Wheel of Fun combines the classic ‘wheel of fortune’ concept with the fairness and security of the blockchain, the simplicity of Hi Lo, and the instant win genre that the crypto-audience enjoys.

Players face off against the circus ringmaster in the big top, aiming to stop the spinning wheel for a big FUN payout. They must decide if it’s their lucky day by adjusting the ‘Chances’ slider to light up between four and 20 of the wheel’s 24 numbers, limiting the number of lit segments to take bigger wins or filling the wheel with yellow for more frequent payouts.

Wheel of Fun offers the same high-spec animation, mechanics and soundscape that players have come to expect from a FunFair title, with the studio continuing to raise the bar for blockchain game design.

FunFair’s unique Fate Channel scaling solution allows for the real-time gameplay and functionality expected from any tier one online casino game – far exceeding what’s currently available at other blockchain casinos – with Wheel of Fun also featuring a number of spin speeds and autoplay options to suit players’ preferences.

Stefan Kovach, CCO of FunFair Technologies, said: “Wheel of Fun will offer players yet another first-class blockchain gaming experience, utilising our proprietary scaling technology and design expertise to further expand the FunFair games portfolio.

“This title represents the start of FunFair’s ramped-up content rollout over the coming months. We will continue to raise the benchmark of blockchain game design, with new titles spanning a number of genres ready to service our existing and future white-label partners.”

Players can try out Wheel of Fun – Fairground on the FunFair showcase, while those in an accepted territory can also try their luck at FunFair’s first live partner casino CasinoFair.

William Hill has appointed Matt Ashley as its chief financial officer and executive director to the board. He will take over the new positions on 6 April.

William Hill announced earlier that its current CFO, Ruth Prior, would be leaving to join Element Materials Technology.

Prior would leave William Hill at the end of its annual general meeting on 15 May and would remain as CFO until that date.

The board said Prior and Ashley would work together in the intervening period to ensure a smooth handover.

Ashley is joining William Hill from FTSE 250 passenger transport operator National Express, where he gained chief financial officer experience before leading their North American business as president and chief executive officer. Most recently, he held the position of group business development director.

William Hill also announced that Stephen Parry would join its executive committee as chief operating officer later this year. Parry is currently the integration director of Flutter.

“These two key appointments reinforce our focus on building a high calibre team. Matt and Stephen bring significant strengths to the company. Matt has a wealth of international financial and US experience as well as being an experienced CFO of a FTSE 250 listed company,” Ulrik Bengtsson, chief executive officer of William Hill, said.

Parry, meanwhile, came with a first-class track record of driving digital change, operational focus and customer experience in senior roles at Vodafone and Flutter, Bengtsson said.

“I look forward to welcoming them both to William Hill,” Bengtsson added.
