Spike Games’ Ocean Blaster 2 now comes with unrivalled smart contract-powered fairness

 

FunFair Technologies, the leading decentralised B2B casino platform, has gone live with its first third party developed game, Ocean Blaster 2, in partnership with Spike Games.

In an industry first, FunFair and Spike Games have adapted Ocean Blaster 2 for the blockchain, introducing a smart-contract backend which ensures unrivalled transparency and fairness for players.

Ocean Blaster 2 brings yet another genre to FunFair’s growing range of premium blockchain titles, in this case the increasingly popular fish shooting, instant win type which has seen great success in East Asian markets.

The title features frantic action for cash prizes as players fire away at sea creatures in an immersive underwater world. With unique features including immediate reload, Ocean Blaster 2 will be a brand new experience for the booming blockchain player base.

Stefan Kovach, CCO at FunFair Technologies, says: “With our first third-party title, we wanted to set the tone and show players that they can expect the same quality from our partners as they do from us. Spike Games has been a first class partner in making Ocean Blaster 2 a truly standout, blockchain title.

“We can’t wait to see how our community engages with it and we look forward to continuing to work with games developers to bring more high-quality titles to the FunFair platform in the near future.”

Rob Anderson, founder of Spike Games, said: “Since launching in the traditional casino space, Ocean Blaster 2 has held great appeal with players looking for a fast-paced, arcade style title, and we’re sure this will carry over to the huge blockchain audience looking for the best gaming experiences.

“Enabling it for the blockchain in partnership with FunFair has been a valued, mutually-beneficial learning process, and we look forward to a long-running, profitable partnership together.

Ocean Blaster 2 is available to play now at the first FunFair-powered casino, CasinoFair.

Spiffbet Set to Acquire Goliath Casino
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Spiffbet is set to acquire the parent company of Goliath Casino, a Swedish online casino operator that mainly targets higher spending players.

In a deal that still has to be approved, Spiffbet will offer Goliath shareholders new shares in Spiffbet. Up to 6,632,331 Spiffbet shares will be issued at SEK0.401 each, which will represent 3.8% of all Spiffbet shares and correspond to a value of around SEK2.6 million (€252,518).

Spiffbet plans to offer a further private placement worth SEK856,073 to selected investors, including some Goliath shareholders, to partially finance the acquisition of Goliath as a wholly-owned subsidiary.

Goliath’s director board has recommended the deal, but it will need approval from 90% of Goliath’s shareholders. So far, 84.2% of shareholders have indicated their support.

Spiffbet, which completed a merger with Metal Casino earlier in the year, has said it expects Goliath to make a contribution to profit for the second half of the year.

“The acquisition of Goliath strengthens our position in the online casino and is an important part of our acquisition plan. Through Goliath, Spiffbet gets access to a new brand that is internationally viable and that we can develop and expand into new markets,” Henrik Svensson, Chief Executive of Spiffbet, said.

“Furthermore, the coordination benefits with Metal Casino are clear. Goliath fits in well with our business and complements our market presence with a different profile and partly other markets,” Henrik Svensson added.

“Through the acquisition, Goliath gets a fresh start and can, through Spiffbet, continue to develop and be part of a larger group of companies where other brands are included. Spiffbet has strong support from its owners to be the locomotive in the consolidation that is taking place in the gaming industry and I look forward to being a part of this journey,” Claes Wenthzel, Chairman of Goliath, said.
