Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

YGAM, the charity which works to inform, educate and safeguard young people against problematic gambling and social gaming, has set out a series of ambitious KPI targets for 2019/20.  The charity, which will celebrate its fifth anniversary later this year, is aiming to grow its annual income to £1.675m (£750,000 in 2018) a figure that will enable it to raise the number of YGAM trained practitioners to in excess of 3,000, which will double the number of young people educated to over 331,000 and establish partnerships with 25 Universities, up from the current figure of ten.

YGAM founder and chief executive, Lee Willows, stated: “The awareness raising activities that we have been undertaking with all sections of the gambling industry played a big part in helping to make 2018 a landmark year for everyone involved in YGAM and progressing our core objective of informing, educating and safeguarding young and vulnerable people.  In terms of specifics, I am delighted to confirm that we were able to train an additional 350 practitioners who in turn succeeded in reaching 55,954 young people during the course of the year.

“In 2018 we also established an independent board of trustees, achieved Investors In People accreditation, launched YGAM in the Midlands and the North of England, published two academic evaluations on the impact of our programme, achieved Pearson Assured accreditation and staged the first YGAM Symposium in partnership with City University of London.”

He continued: “I am always really pleased to talk with the industry and to demonstrate how its RET contributions enable the small but dedicated team that we have in place at YGAM to extend our reach and continue to make a really significant impact with young people and their families.  Similarly, we had really positive conversations with representatives from the industry who visited our booth at ICE.  The industry has an open invitation to experience one of our workshops and see how we put the great support that we receive into activities that deliver results.”

YGAM’s growth strategy is evident in its full schedule of events and workshops across the UK over the coming months including their YGAM Parliamentary symposium focused around gaming, a gaming network event, development of the University and Student engagement programme and the launch of the new training subsidiary, Gameplan.

NetEnt’s New Cupcakes Slot Brings a Sweet Experience with Delicious Features

Published

Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

NetEnt has launched its sweetest video slot this season, where Gumdrops and fluffy Cupcakes come together in a symphony of mouth-watering features boosted by Scatter Pays and signature Avalanche™ mechanics.

When at least eight Gumdrops of the same color pop onto the reels, the Scatter Pays kick in for potentially delightful payouts. As giant Cupcakes fall to the bottom of the reels, they will collect Gumdrops of the same color. When at least ten Gumdrops fill the frosting atop the Cupcakes, they turn into Multipliers to enhance the original wager. Multipliers reset on each spin in the Main Game, as opposed to Free Spins when they only reset at the end of the Bonus Round.

During the spectacular Crush feature, giant Cupcakes may randomly rain down the reels to the bottom, crushing symbols in the way. Coming to rest at the base of the reels after the Crush, Cupcakes will start collecting Gumdrops atop their whipped cream to enhance Multipliers, once again. Free Spins Scatters may also hit the reels during the Bonus Round for retriggers.

Gionata La Torre, Chief Executive Office Europe at Evolution said: “Gumdrop symbols stockpiling on giant Cupcakes for Multipliers is an engaging concept created by the teams to bring additional excitement into this delicious-looking game. This novelty comes in addition to the well-known Avalnche™ mechanic, when the symbols disappear on payout and the empty places are filled with new characters. Cupcakes will surely be a mesmerizing title for all the cake enthusiasts and gum candy aficionados.”
