On behalf of the new funding partners, John O’Reilly, CEO Rank Group plc, said: “This is a significant statement of intent from all five companies who share the view that responsible gambling should be at the heart of our businesses. The Senet Group is well placed to deliver an ambitious programme of work, and today’s announcement further strengthens the industry’s wider commitment to ensuring a safer gambling environment can be enjoyed by all customers.  There is a lot to do, an appetite to do it, and we are delighted to be adding our collective muscle to the Senet Group’s work.”

Genius flair and charisma are two basic stones of Tony’s success. His team created ELVIS, an AI combining science works in search of new energy sources. Looking for bright minds, Tony made ELVIS public — shaped like a fortune wheel for a little show. Any useful experiment will be rewarded to support further research.

Unique in mechanics, Tony’s Reel has 3 open reels and 3 fixed pay lines. The winning combos are formed from the outer to inner reel. The game is medium-volatile, with a 360x maximum win.

The only Wild is found on the middle reel. Appearing on a pay line, it stands for any symbol, and activates a re-spin with Wild expanded throughout the reel – thus giving a guaranteed win.

Based on HTML5, the game has vivid visuals to run natively on any modern device, bringing the ultimate gaming experience to a diverse range of players.

“In a will to enrich the player’s impressions, we turned to another well-known mechanic, heavily re-working it and adding all these small touches, that truly make the product stand out in the market. With the good initial feedback received, we are ready to offer this game to our partner network” – said CMO of True Flip, Konstantin Katsev.

Tony’s Reel demo is available at https://wof-games.trueflip.co/.
