The UK casino and gaming community has once again hit a hole in one for children’s charity CHIPS with a record 120 golfers supporting the annual CHIPS Charity Golf tournament held at the prestigious Woburn Golf Club.  The tournament, which is CHIPS flagship fund raising event of the year, generated a total of £55,000, up on last year’s figure of £35,000.  Leading  gaming brand Genting Casinos (UK) underlined its status as one of the charity’s key partners presenting a cheque for £104,000 to CHIPS co-founder, Linda Lindsay.

Reflecting on the tournament, Linda Lindsay, said: “It was an absolutely fantastic day and wonderful to be able to host  our largest ever turnout of golfers. I never cease to be amazed and humbled by the generosity and compassion shown by our industry.  The fantastic cheque for £104,000 from Genting Casinos, is sufficient to purchase at least 12 bespoke powered wheelchairs and in the process transform the lives not just of the recipients but also the lives of their families.”

She added: “I have attended almost all of the 550 wheelchair presentations that CHIPS has been able to make thanks to the generosity of the gaming industry and I can vouch for the life changing impact each and every wheelchair has made – and it’s all down to this industry and amazing supporters such as Genting.  On behalf of my Trustees can I say how immensely grateful we are to everyone from the industry who has supported CHIPS and in the process helped to make this tournament the best event of its type on the casino and gaming industry calendar.”

Paul Willcock, President and COO at Genting Casinos (UK) who presented the bumper cheque alongside Irene Nuqui, Cashdesk Manager at Palm Beach, said: “On behalf of everyone at Genting Casinos can I say how delighted we are to support this outstanding charity which undertakes such magnificent work in the community and embodies the compassion and generosity of our industry.  The team at Genting Casinos has gained immense enjoyment, pride and purpose from supporting the work undertaken by Linda and her Trustees and I am delighted to be able to present her and the CHIPS charity with this cheque for £104,000.”

The charity golf day saw the Grosvenor Casinos team, comprising David Kenny, Adrian Frost, Mark Grogan and Roger Quelsh, winning the tournament for the second consecutive year with 81 points and the runners up position was claimed by a new team from the independent UK spares and repairs company, E-Service, featuring Mike Clokie, Mark Sowray, David Sherwin and Carl Bearman. There were a number of individual winners with Mike Clokie, MD of E-Service named as best player, Sue Kennedy of the Ritz Casino as the ladies winner and Jay Clarke of Horizons Casino the event’s individual winner on points. Roger Quelsh, Melvin Alan and Ashley Matters took home the Nearest the Pin on the 8th and 17th holes and Longest Drive prizes respectively.

CHIPS is one of the UK’s most efficient charities with 100% of the monies raised used to purchase powered wheelchairs for young people across the UK.  CHIPS wheelchairs can cost up to £7,500 and are custom-designed to meet the specific needs of the individual recipient. Born out of the industry, CHIPS has raised in excess of £2.4m, enabling it to purchase 550 wheelchairs.

Soft2Bet celebrates its 3rd birthday!

Soft2Bet celebrates its 3rd birthday!
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Soft2Bet, а leading online gambling operator and software provider, announces third anniversary of the company’s founding.

Established by a few passionate industry veterans in September 2016, now Soft2Bet boasts a team of more than 200 dedicated employees spread in four international offices in key European centres – Kyiv, Sofia, Limassol, and Malta.

Known as a multi-brand company, three years ago Soft2Bet started with MalinaCasino, an online casino and sports brand. Then, by the end of 2016 BuranCasino and YoYoCasino were launched. Nowadays, the portfolio consists of 13 unique brands, the latest of which is called Nomini and went officially live just a few days before the company’s anniversary.

Soft2Bet is known for providing clients with an online casino experience that can be rarely seen anywhere else in the industry. At the beginning its brands were offering well-known casino games as well as sports betting options. Now, clients can play more than 2,500 games coming from industry leading providers. Sport fans can bet on thousands of pre-match and live events on over 30 types of sports including virtuals. Adding more verticals is on the roadmap of the company in the near future. But that is not all – some of the brands, the newest one, Nomini, for example incorporate a gamification technology that allows players not only to enjoy high-quality casino games but participate in ‘a game in the game’ – unlock achievements, collect special points, exchange them, earn prizes, and etc.

In terms of game providers, Soft2Bet brands are offering titles from top companies in the business as well as from trusted emerging iGaming software development studios. Working only with a few of them at the beginning, now Soft2Bet partners up with 44 key iGaming providers. Among the company’s partners are Play’N GoNetEntEvolution GamingAltenarPragmatic Play and Microgaming.

It is important to mention the two significant milestones reached during the last year – the acquisition of a licence from the Malta Gaming Authority and the BMM-certification that brings Soft2Bet one step closer to operating on the fruitful Swedish market. These are huge achievements that place the young company among the major online casino providers on the regulated European market!

Borish Chaikin, CEO of Soft2Bet comments: “We remain ambitious and hungry to improve further – to launch new products, incorporate the latest technologies, expand our geographical reach, introduce our brands to more people. We are at the right place now, and we wouldn’t be here without the continued support of our partners. I hope our growth during these three years has also helped them in the development of their own businesses as well. And as far as I can conclude from our mutual growth results – it is the case. We will continue to put all our efforts to evolve in the future and conquer new heights. A ‘thank you’ doesn’t sound enough, but we are thankful to all parties involved in our success story – from our business partners to our dedicated employees!”

A spectacular event with a circus show was organised on September 12 to celebrate the company’s third anniversary together with employees and valued partners.
