Evolution Gaming, leading provider of Live Casino solutions, announced the launch of its unique new game, MONOPOLY Live, created via sublicense from Scientific Games in partnership with Hasbro, Inc. . The new game, first unveiled at ICE 2019 in February, is available only from Evolution and further extends the company’s growing range of game show style games.

MONOPOLY Live is an all-new special edition of Evolution’s Dream Catcher money wheel, in which the world’s most popular board game meets Live Casino — complete with augmented reality, 3D Bonus rounds built around the adventures of MR. MONOPOLY, and with the chance of big ‘multiplier’ wins.

According to Todd Haushalter, Evolution’s Chief Product Officer, “It is a real honour to work with one of the world’s best-loved brands to create such a unique game. MONOPOLY Live represents a real breakthrough in our industry and redefines Live Casino entertainment.”

Haushalter explained, “Dream Catcher has been loved by players ever since its launch in 2017 and we are very excited for the launch of this special MONOPOLY Live edition of Dream Catcher. A game like this has never been created before and it leverages some of the most advanced technology available including the use of augmented reality. Our emphasis was on creating an immensely fun game for players and we are confident that it offers players a truly unique gaming experience with the combination of the main money wheel game, the live host and exciting Bonus rounds with MR. MONOPOLY in his 3D MONOPOLY world, complete with all the familiar MONOPOLY game elements.”

Martin Carlesund, Group CEO at Evolution Gaming, added: “MONOPOLY Live is a very exciting launch for Evolution and its licensees. It is the epitome of the highly visual and entertaining games in our fast-growing Game Shows category. This is a landmark moment for Evolution — to launch a Live Casino version of such an iconic and well-loved game in association with Scientific Games and Hasbro.”
“At Hasbro, we are always eager to offer fans new, innovative ways to interact with the iconic MONOPOLY brand,” notes Mark Blecher, Hasbro’s SVP of Corporate Strategy and Business Affairs. “We are thrilled to see MR. MONOPOLY transport into a 3D world to host MONOPOLY Live and bring the fast-paced world of real-estate into Live Casino entertainment.”

As a part of the efforts to drive illegal igaming business from the country’s market, the German state of Lower Saxony (Niedersachsen) has issued an international payment service provider with a blocking order. The companies have been banned from doing business with operators offering online casino, poker and lottery betting in Germany.

“[The] pressure is now on other payment providers to reorganise their businesses processes related to illegal gambling, if they have not already done so. Online casino is no trivial matter. [It is] banned by the State Treaty on Gambling and [offering such products is] a criminal offence. In the meantime, however, it remains a billion-Euro market,” Boris Pistorius, Minister for Home Affairs and Sports said.

The Niedersachsen Ministry of Interior handed the responsibility for implementing payment blocking controls. Its blocking orders are effective across all German states. The Ministry also sent warnings to a number of other payment service providers over links to illegal gambling. Some of these companies have already responded by ceasing to power transactions for offshore sites.

“The successful interactions with some payment service providers shows that our approach is quite effective,” Pistorius added.

Greentube revolutionising iGaming integrations in 2019
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

With nJoin, Greentube has reduced the integration of its games into partner platforms from months to a few days, while providing a simple, interactive and transparent integration process. The tool enables B2B partners to quickly build up a knowledge base about Greentube’s games and platform features, launch and play its games as well as integrate, debug and fix issues on the fly. The tool is designed in a way that best fits the needs of Greentube’s B2B partners integrating its games into their platform.

Amir Gharani, Head of Games Integration at Greentube: “nJoin was a vision on paper last year, now it is a reality. Game integrations have never been easier and it’s amazing to see feedback from the operators on how easy, effective and transparent the integrations have become for them with nJoin. In addition, this project would never be completed without having such a team of highly talented and inspiring specialists. Greentube is on a mission to establish itself as the world’s leading B2B game provider and nJoin is an essential part of that journey.”

Michael Bauer Greentube CFO/CGO: “Our strategy is to continuously expand throughout Europe and the Americas. nJoin will be a catalyst in reaching our goals as future integrations will be more efficient and faster for both us and our B2B partners. I want to congratulate the team who did an amazing job from creating the concept until implementation. It is the first step in a series of innovations and improvements which we are planning to implement moving forward. Watch this space for more to come.”

The core features of nJoin are its test suites, which guide users through the implementation of any and all B2B interaction between Greentube and its partners. Easy bug fixing is facilitated though immediate feedback from the built-in diagnostic tools. At the end of the integration, the operator is able to run all automated test cases from start to end and will be provided with an overview on which tests have passed and which not.
