Two exquisite new table game releases are helping Microgaming to redefine the online casino experience.

 

Developed exclusively for Microgaming by Switch Studios, the talented team behind Microgaming’s sophisticated and stylish new table game offering, European Blackjack and American Roulette are the latest additions to the software supplier’s new suite of superior table games.

Breathing new life into a true casino favourite, European Blackjack features a crisp, clean design, along with an elegant and simple interface, dealing up all the action with outstanding visual quality.

Perfected for new and experienced players, European Blackjack is based on an all-new game engine that brings fluid gameplay, exciting card animations, slick table graphics and realistic sounds together for a truly immersive casino experience. In this classic reimagined, players can choose to split, double and take insurance, and they can customise their gameplay with left-handed layouts and turbo mode.

Next to the table and hot on the heels of the Microgaming’s popular European Roulette, comes its stateside counterpart American Roulette. This stylish variant features American-themed artwork and boasts an amazingly authentic 3D roulette wheel with lifelike ball behaviours.

Built on a powerful game engine, this contemporary American variant includes a slick statistics panel that displays spin result history and other betting information. Players can save their preferred bet options with the favourites feature or use special bets to access numerous pre-selected bets, while a sophisticated racetrack feature provides an alternative bet board display for the more seasoned player.

Both table games have been designed to bring the ultimate online casino experience, no matter the player’s device of choice. Specifically optimised for mobile, the two titles can be played in portrait or landscape, allowing mobile players to switch up their gameplay at will.

Microgaming’s fresh new look at European Blackjack and American Roulette is being dealt exclusively to Microgaming operators.

“We’re delighted to release not one, but two new games under the Switch Studios brand, exclusively to Microgaming. Both European Blackjack and American Roulette demonstrate our ambition to refresh the table-game market with exciting, modern and mobile-friendly gaming experiences.” – Tom David, Head of Studio at Switch Studios.

“Switch Studios has done it again, taking a fresh look at traditional table games and reigniting them for a new era of players. With immersive gameplay and customisable features complemented by stunning visuals, new and seasoned players can enjoy the thrill of European Blackjack and American Roulette both at home and on the go.” – Jagoda Barber, Head of Games at Microgaming.

32Red, the sponsor of Derby County FC, has launched its latest responsible gambling campaign featuring Wayne Rooney.

32Red released the video as part of their ongoing commitment to encourage responsible gambling, with Rooney at the forefront of the move.

The former Manchester United and England captain, now with Derby, appears in the video along with boxer Carl Frampton and jockey Paddy Brennan.

In the minute-long video, Rooney, 34, who has been open about his own gambling issues in the past, looks straight into the camera and says: “Do you gamble responsibly?”, as well as encouraging gamblers to “set limits on your play” and “how long you play for.”

Neil Banbury, 32Red managing director, said it was vital to have someone with Rooney’s profile and global reach to deliver and get across such an important message.

Qontigo Launches Two New Thematic Indices On Video Gaming And Healthcare
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Qontigo has expanded its suite of innovative thematic indices by two new concepts: online gaming and the fight against obesity. The STOXX® Video Gaming & eSports Index and the STOXX® Health & Weight Loss Index were introduced today, and financial products based on these indices are expected to launch in the coming weeks.

Both indices are positioned to benefit from structural, global economic growth trends. The STOXX® Video Gaming & eSports Index is comprised of companies focused in the high growth area of video games and eSports. The STOXX® Health & Weight Loss Index includes constituents that are connected to the immediate need of addressing the rising obesity levels in the global population.

“The online gaming and health and weight loss indices are the latest additions to our thematics family that seeks to capture sector-specific, long-term growth. At Qontigo we have advanced thematic investing since 2016 and now offer two dozen theme-based STOXX indices following modern concepts with above-average growth outlooks. Thematic investing aims to capture the momentum of disruptive megatrends that fall into the categories of demographics, climate change and technology. As an investment category, thematic investing has nearly tripled in the three years through December 31, 2019“, said Stephan Flaegel, Global Head of Indices & Benchmarks at Qontigo.

Each index selects constituents from the STOXX® Developed and Emerging Markets Total Market Index, and from certain Chinese markets, with substantial revenue exposure to business sectors associated with the respective concept. The business categories are based on FactSet Revere’s data. Only stocks with a given minimum trading volume are eligible.

Additionally, the two indices will exclude companies that Sustainalytics considers to be non-compliant with the Global Standard Screening and those involved in controversial weapons. This is in line with increasing demand from asset owners and investors to comply with sustainability norms, a drive that has also emerged in thematic strategies.
