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.

Europol Supports Portugal In Huge Operation Targeting Illicit Lotteries And Sports Betting
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

The Fiscal Action Unit of the Portuguese Republican National Guard, together with the Territorial Command of Setúbal and with the support of a number of other Territorial Commands from Portugal*, as well as Luxembourg and Europol successfully carried out operation SHADOW GAME from 6 to 8 November.

 

After an investigation of 15 months, coordinated by Eurojust and Europol, participating law enforcement forces carried out 267 house searches in Portugal and 8 house searches in Luxembourg earlier this month. As a result of these, 30 individuals were arrested in Portugal, and one detained in Luxembourg in accordance with the European Arrest Warrant. EUR 576,000 have been seized in cash alongside some 3,000 computer devices used for illegal gambling, 22 firearms, 86 vehicles, including several luxury vehicles and several bank accounts resulting in the recovery of more than 6 million EUR in criminal assets. Fourteen commercial companies and 93 people from Portugal, Luxembourg, as well as Brazil and Switzerland were also indicted.

The investigation revealed a structured and hierarchical transnational criminal organisation operating in various EU Member States (Belgium, Luxembourg, Portugal) and Switzerland. The criminal organisation was active in the field of servers and software for the development of games of chance, lotteries and sports betting. The purpose of the network was to obtain and maximize illicit revenues by dividing them along the chain of operators and reinvesting them in economic sectors and licit enterprises. The total amount of criminal profits obtained in Portugal and in Luxembourg is currently estimated at EUR 80 million.

Europol supported this investigation by providing on-going analytical support, organising and funding operational meetings between Portugal and Luxembourg and by deploying its staff members and mobile office capabilities to Portugal and Luxembourg during the action days to prepare and assist both country’s National Authorities with on-the-spot real time intelligence analysis, which has already allowed for the identification of new international links.
