Spike Games’ slot ‘School’s Out For Summer’ first licensed content to go live on casino platform

FunFair Technologies, the leading decentralised B2B casino platform, has set another industry first in bringing the first licensed content title, School’s Out For Summer, to blockchain casino.

Spike Games’ popular slot is its second game to come to the FunFair platform after seeing Ocean Blaster 2 make waves when launched earlier this year.

The five-reel, 20-line slot is the most feature rich to go live on the platform to date, while it’s immersive gameplay and soundscape far exceeds the quality of FunFair’s decentralised competition.

Its numerous unique features include the stacked ‘Twin Wilds Bonus’, a ‘Free Spins Bonus’ feature which sees players gamble up a snake ladder, and ‘Death Row Pick A Win’, where those (un)lucky enough can pick a switch from the electric chair for an instant prize.

School’s Out has had its back-end altered to be run by smart contracts, removing the need for a remote gaming server, ensuring fairness is guaranteed while significantly reducing hosting costs.

Stefan Kovach, FunFair’s CCO, said: “The theme of the game may be a blast from the past but the technology is not. Spike Games has transported School’s Out into the future with the integration of blockchain and the benefits of guaranteed fairness it provides.

“Ocean Blaster 2 has been a huge hit and I’ve no doubt that players will be rushing to play Spike’s second game on the FunFair platform.”

Rob Anderson, founder of Spike Games, said: “School’s Out has already rocked players around the world and we’re excited to follow-up on Ocean Blaster 2 with another smash hit.

“We’re proud to have brought the first two traditional titles to the blockchain, and looking at our roadmap of games to come, this is set to be an exciting journey as we shape the future of online casino gaming.”

School’s Out For Summer is available to play now on the first FunFair-powered casino, CasinoFair, as well as the FunFair Showcase.

Takkaro launches new affiliate site through LadyLucks acquisition
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Takkaro, the established affiliate marketing specialist, has acquired gaming site LadyLucks.co.uk and transformed it into an online casino guide.

LadyLucks was launched in 2011 as the first dedicated mobile casino in the UK. Founded by IGT, it was later bought by Alea in 2017.

Under Takkaro’s ownership the LadyLucks brand has now become a UK-focused online casino guide and affiliate site. It will be used to promote select casino brands and offer tutorials, game reviews, FAQs, support and advice on responsible gambling.

LadyLucks’ development will be aided by Takkaro’s long history of success, with the operator’s founders, Charles Gross and Alexandre Tomic, having launched the pioneering Casino Lemonade affiliate marketing website a decade ago.

Maxime Gross, Takkaro’s Managing Director, said: “LadyLucks is already an established and trusted brand and we have been impressed by its reach. We identified its promise as a casino guide and this acquisition makes sense both for LadyLucks and Takkaro.

“We believe that the combination of LadyLucks’ prominence and Takkaro’s expertise and knowledge of the online casino and affiliate sector will create a fantastic experience for players.

“We care about our players and so LadyLucks will also include a section on responsible gaming where we offer tips that will help players maximise their overall gaming experience while helping them to avoid the dangers of developing a gambling addiction.”

Earlier this year, Takkaro unveiled a unique online casino comparison website, FeedBACKcasino.com.

Founded on a “find and compare” principle, FeedBACKcasino.com allows visitors to identify preferred online casinos by applying different filters, such as payment methods, software and types of games – and comparing them side-by-side at the same time.

“This has been an exciting year for Takkaro,” Gross said. “Following the successful launch of FeedBACKcasino we will now look to make progress with LadyLucks as we reach out to a new audience.”

Digitain set to showcase latest U.S. strategy and products at G2E 2019
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Leading provider heads to Las Vegas with pioneering sportsbook and a G2E gameplan for expansion

Leading platform provider Digitain is on site and all set for next week’s Global Gaming Expo 2019, which runs from 14-17 October at the Sands Expo Convention Center, Las Vegas.

Spearheaded by a dedicated sales force with proven experience delivering industry-leading B2B solutions across online and retail sports betting technology, the Digitain team will be on hand to advise delegates as to its North American strategy, featuring a wide-ranging product portfolio and trading tools which lead the field.

After PASPA’s landmark repeal last year, regulated state-by-state sports betting is gathering progressive pace and traction. Accordingly, G2E 2019 – the largest igaming gathering of the year stateside – provides a must-attend conference at which to both distil and illuminate the North American opportunity, as the U.S. market continues to coalesce and crystallise its potential.

Digitain’s definitive sportsbook solution and trading tools are tailor-made for the demands of live betting in a fragmented legislative landscape, facilitating rapid integrations across the world, all supported by centralised control systems.

In total, this sportsbook product covers 65 sports, covers 7,500 leagues, and offers more than 3,000 betting markets. It also offers odds on 35,000 live events each month, while its casino solution has 3,000-plus games from major casino suppliers (such as Novomatic, Microgaming, NetEnt and Playson).

Simon Westbury, Digitain’s Director for International Business Development, said: “G2E 2019 provides us with a perfect venue at which to underline the quality and innovation we bring to the sports betting industry. Our platform was specifically designed for fast deployment across multiple territories.

“Unlike the cookie-cutter solutions that increasingly dominate the U.S. landscape, Digitain can work flexibly with operators state-by-state to offer tailored front-ends which speak to representing their individual brands accurately, thanks to a customisable user interface. It’s a brave, new world.”

Suren Khachatryan, CCO at Digitain, added: “I’m hugely optimistic about the U.S. market for sports betting, and requests for proposal in the U.S. have been very encouraging. We’re noticing a surge in interest from southern states such as Mississippi, while even the likes of New Jersey and Nevada retain potential. It’s a fascinating time, particularly with more mature states about to release figures on the current NFL season (certain to be a core revenue-driver). But it’s still an embryonic period where operators must not make rushed decisions in the collective stampede to market.”
