Wazdan - Larry the Leprechaun
Reading Time: 3 minutes

 

The highly anticipated new game title from Wazdan, Larry the Leprechaun, has officially been released – just in time for iGB Live! – offering players a little Irish luck as they journey through an enchanted forest in search of a pot full of gold.

Larry the Leprechaun transports players into the enchanted forest where they can spin the reels in their search for the ancient Irish legend, the ultimate pot of gold. Full of exciting twists and turns, Larry the Leprechaun offers players a wide variety of special features that charm each spin.

The game has 16 reels and no paylines, meaning that symbols pay on any position on the reels. What is more, players can block any symbols and re-spin the reels for a chance to get a winning combination.

Larry the Leprechaun comes with a host of special features, including a Wild symbol that substitutes for any other symbol, increasing players’ chances for a big win.

The game is all about Larry’s treasures, so players will have to collect 16 gold and silver coins to trigger bonus rounds. Gold coins activate the Leprechaun’s Spins Bonus giving players 16 Free Spins, during which Wilds are blocked on the reels, awarding the prize for that symbol at the end of the round.  Silver coins, on the other hand, trigger 16 regular Free Spins.

However, Larry is a cunning little creature, so he won’t give up his treasures so easily. He enchanted the sack symbol so that it “steals” coins accumulated by players. Fortunately, collecting 8 sack symbols triggers another Free Spins feature, this time awarding 8 spins with extra Wilds that become sticky for the whole round and randomly selected Bonus Symbol that changes into Wilds.

Stunning 3D graphics and animations, cheerful theme, high-quality sound effects and an abundance of entertaining special features make Larry the Leprechaun a sure hit! More information on this exciting new slot, and the story of Larry the Leprechaun, can be found in the game’s promotional video.

Launching today, Larry the Leprechaun is being showcased on the opening day of iGB Live! event in Amsterdam, where the team at Wazdan will be giving attendees a first peek into the highly-awaited game.

As with all Wazdan games, Larry the Leprechaun comes jam-packed with Unique Wazdan Features which give players the opportunity to personalise the gameplay experience and include.  Volatility Levels™ that let players adjust the volatility of the game to suit their individual preferences; Double Screen Mode which gives the feeling of land-based slots with a view of the paytable at all times, Energy Saving Mode extending battery life by up to 40 per cent; Unique Gamble Feature that gives players the chance to double their win in an instant; Ultra Fast Mode which speeds up the pace of the game; Ultra Lite Mode decreasing the time taken to load the game; and Big Screen Mode that zooms the reels of the game to fill the entire screen.

Wazdan’s games are a new breed of slots which capture the hearts and minds of operators and players through technologically rich graphics and experiences that set Wazdan apart from other slots producers.

Committed to consistently creating high-quality, player-pleasing game titles, Wazdan has announced a host of new titles just this year, including Relic Hunters™ and the Book of Faith, Lucky Fish, Magic Stars 5, Magic Stars 6, Space Gem™, Juicy Reels, and Lucky Reels. Their long-standing player favourites include Magic Stars 3, 9 Lions, Great Book of Magic Deluxe, Magic Target Deluxe, Los Muertos™, and Valhalla.

“Larry the Leprechaun is one of many games recently released by Wazdan and one which we are extremely proud of.

We anticipate Larry the Leprechaun to quickly establish itself as a favourite amongst players and operators alike,” says Andrzej Hyla, Head of Sales at Wazdan.

Paf’s results for 2023

Published

on

Reading Time: 3 minutes

The Nordic gaming company Paf’s annual report for 2023 shows that it has been a good year which means a good sum of Paf funds for society. Paf’s published customer segments show more sustainable revenue in the past year. The Paf board gets a new member.

The Paf Group’s revenue for 2023 increased from €165.7 million to €177.1 million, an increase of 7%. The growth in revenue results in an increase in profit from €44.8 million to €55.1 million, which is a record for Paf.

“We can be happy and proud with the past year. We have gained a larger customer base and the number of active customers has increased by 27%, which explains some of it, but we are also well aware that the temporarily low gaming taxes in Finland have helped the result,” says Christer Fahlstedt, CEO.

Paf’s result is the best result in Paf’s 57-year history and an increase of 23% compared to the previous year. However, gaming taxes in a number of countries will be increased in 2024, which will create different conditions going forward. In Finland, the temporary reduction of the lottery tax has increased from 5% to 12%, in Sweden the gambling tax will increase from 18% to 22%, in Estonia from 5% to 6% and in Latvia from 10% to 12%.

“The trend of increasing gaming taxes will continue, and we expect to see more much-needed demands for increased responsible gaming measures. The changes will result in reduced profitability and many operators will find it more difficult. But Paf is well prepared for the times ahead,” says Christer Fahlstedt.

31.4 million euros in Paf funds
The annual distribution of Paf funds will be €31.4 million. Paf funds are used for the benefit of society, including a number of third sector organisations that work to promote society in social activities, culture, youth work, sports, environmental activities and more.

“It’s undeniably great that Paf is achieving a great result, allowing us to distribute a total of €31.4 million in the form of Paf funds. The employees have done a phenomenal job over the past year, and the Board would like to thank all Paf employees who have made this possible,” says Jan-Mikael von Schantz, Chairman of the Paf Board.

Sustainable entertainment
In 2023, Paf chose to invest heavily in responsible gaming, and the loss limit for all customers was lowered to EUR 17,500 per year. In addition, in spring 2023, Paf introduced a specific loss limit for young players aged 18–19, €1,800 per year. In spring 2024, Paf chose to lower the loss limit for young people aged 20–24. Young people of that age already had a lower loss limit at Paf but it was further reduced from €10,000 to €8,000 per year.

“This is an important continuation of the direction we are striving to take at Paf for our responsible gaming. Now young customers can only gamble with us for sums that are at more sustainable levels and within the framework of the customer segment we have defined ourselves as the green segment,” says Christer Fahlstedt.

Paf’s customer segments 2017–2023
The published table shows the development of gaming in different customer segments from 2017 until 2023. The red segment for customers who have lost more than €30,000 in one year is at zero in recent years, as Paf’s loss limits stop large losses. The white segment shows the number of players who ended the year in profit.

“It is encouraging to see that we have once again increased the green revenues with more sustainable revenues by a full 7.6%. It is possible to change an outdated business model in the industry and we will continue our strive to be a gaming company that provides sustainable entertainment in everyday life,” says Christer Fahlstedt.

The figures for Paf’s customer segments have been reviewed by auditors as part of the audit of the financial statements.

“Our published and open customer segments show what our investments in responsible gaming measures have achieved over the years. The publication gives credibility to our efforts at a level that no other gaming company has been able to show,” says Christer Fahlstedt.

Daniela Forsgård new on the board
Paf gets a new board member when Daniela Forsgård takes a seat on the board. At the same time, Birgitta Eriksson is stepping down after many years on Paf’s board.

“I really want to thank Birgitta for the solid contribution she has made to Paf’s Board over the years.”

“Daniela Forsgård’s merit-based knowledge of finance, combined with the international experience she possesses, will fit in well with the Board. In addition, Daniela has personal experience of Paf as she previously worked at Paf,” says Jan-Mikael von Schantz.

The Paf Board now consists of Chairman Jan-Mikael von Schantz, Board members Gunnar Westerlund, Denise Johansson, Roger Nordlund and Daniela Forsgård.
