The gambling operator Kindred Group moves to state-of-the-art premises at AMF Real Estate in Urban Escape in central Stockholm, consolidating its role as one of the leading tech companies in Sweden. The ambition is to double the number of employees in the coming years.

 

“It is very exciting to finally move into new premises in the middle of Stockholm where we can continue to grow at a fast pace. Since the birth of Kindred more than 20 years ago, it has been important for us to create a work environment that reflects our culture and our values”, says Henrik Tjärnström, CEO Kindred Group.

Kindred has grown rapidly in recent years and currently employs around 1,500 people worldwide, of which approximately 350 people work in Stockholm.

With the current growth rate, Kindred expects that the number of employees in Stockholm will double in the coming years.

“We are in an expansive phase right now and the new premises will allow us to grow rapidly. Several hundred new employees will be recruited to the Stockholm office in order for Kindred to secure its position as a digital gambling company at the forefront of technology development and sustainability”, says Henrik Tjärnström, CEO Kindred Group.

Kindred moves into two floors on Regeringsgatan 29 starting April 8th. Other tenants in the new tech cluster include EQT, Netlight, and Microsoft.

Rush Street Interactive (RSI) is excited to collaborate with Greentube, NOVOMATIC’s Interactive division, as it strengthens its presence in Colombia by launching a selection of premium games.  Players will now be able to enjoy a range of classic and successful land-based casino titles, such as Sizzling Hot™ deluxe and Lucky Lady’s CharmTM, which have been successfully adapted for online and mobile channels, alongside other popular titles like Royal Crown Blackjack, and Royal Crown Roulette, 1-2-3 Bingo!, and Apollo God of the Sun.

Chicago-based Rush Street Interactive made history as the first United States gaming company to launch a nationally regulated online site in Latin America, specifically in Colombia: RushBet.co.  Colombia, being the first South American country to legalize and regulate internet gambling nationwide, is an exciting and dynamic market for RSI.  In fact, RSI launched the Colombian site in May 2018, and has consistently grown at a fast pace to emerge as one of the country’s most respected operators. RushBet.co continues to grow its market share by bringing players new and exciting offerings through partnerships with innovative gaming leaders such as Greentube.

“We like to keep our players happy with our fun casino offerings and that’s why we recently won Casino Operator of the Year at the American Gambling Awards 2019 event and Mobile Operator of the Year in North America at this year’s prestigious EGR Awards,” said Omar Calvo, General Manager of Rush Street Interactive Colombia. “Greentube’s large portfolio has proven to be a favorite with diverse audiences and we expect our players at RushBet.co are going to love these new additions of popular land-based casino games.”

“RushBet.co is a great name to add to our operator network and we are excited to provide their customers with our most popular titles,” said Daniel Lechner, Greentube Head of Sales.  “Our partnership with RushBet.co will enable us to grow further in Colombia.”

Wazdan announces yet another hit game with Dragons Lucky 8 making up the latest slot for Wazdan players and operators to enjoy.

Dragons Lucky 8 brings together the greatest fortunes of the East, combining a dragon-themed adventure, the most revered creature in Chinese culture, with the number eight, deemed to bring good fortune and good luck. The resulting slot game is a fun-packed play delivering a multitude of special features combined with top-notch graphics and animations.

Dragons Lucky 8 is a 6-reel slot with 20 paylines and a fantastical dragon theme that takes players on a journey into a mystic realm where dragons roam free. The game features Wilds, Scatters, Free Spins and Variable Win Multipliers and will be available in Wazdan-powered online casinos with the MGA, UKGC, SGA and Curacao licences.

Thanks to the Wild Symbol and Scatters triggering up to 30 Free Spins, the gameplay of Dragons Lucky 8 is already wildly entertaining, but it is the Variable Win Multiplier, which can reach up to x8, that ups the thrills to soaring heights.

Completing the game, are the Unique Wazdan Features that make Wazdan games so dearly adored. The world’s first Volatility Levels™ open up options for players to adjust the volatility of their game to meet their preference of gameplay. Double Screen Mode brings players back to the feeling of a land-based slot machine, as the paytable can be viewed at all times. Energy Saving Mode and Ultra Lite Mode work to boost the experience of players on mobile – the first extending the battery life by up to 40 per cent, and the latter decreasing the time taken to load the game. The Unique Gamble Feature offers the chance for players to double their win in an instant, while Ultra Fast Mode puts the game on increased speed. Then finally, the latest addition to the Wazdan Unique Features, Big Screen Mode, zooms the reels of the game to fill the entire screen.

Players and operators can get their first spin of Dragons Lucky 8 right here.

“Dragons Lucky 8 is a fun-packed slots game with special features aplenty, in addition to high-class graphics, animation, audio and navigation. It’s been a busy year for our team, but we have maintained our commitment to regularly releasing new games, ensuring that players and operators continue to see and experience all that Wazdan has to offer. We look forward to more announcements soon,” says Andrzej Hyla, Head of Sales, at Wazdan.
