Gauselmann UK win sole supply agreement across all 30 Roadchef venues
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Gauselmann UK is celebrating what Group Business Development Director Ryan Collinge described as ‘a fantastic and positive start’ to its relationship with Roadchef, following the rollout and installation of over 500 Cat C and B3 machines across 30 Motorway Service Areas (MSA). The rollout, which was achieved over a six week period, also encompassed a redesign of the Roadchef AGCs including CCTV and monitoring capability upgrades, improvements to signage and general social responsibility awareness.

Heralding the agreement, Ryan Collinge said: “In terms of the product mix it’s not simply a question of replicating what players would find within a high street AGC. Because there are fewer machine positions and in most cases only four B3s, it is absolutely essential to have the very best performing product which we have achieved with games including Eye of Horus and Fishing Frenzy as both Cat C and B3 content, the latter housed in the latest Aurora Noir cabinets.

He continued: “We have taken the decision to increase the density of the digital Cat C offering which has had an immediate and positive impact on player experience. Being part of the Gauselmann Group has also meant that we have been able to deliver a complete and integrated solution courtesy of the GeWeTe and the MARS platform which is the first time that the brand has been able to provide a complete TiTO solution across an MSA estate.”

The feedback from Roadchef has been equally upbeat and positive. Roadchef CFO James Muirhead said: “Our decision to select Blueprint was based on the strength of the relationship that exists between both of our teams, the trust we have in Blueprint being able to deliver on their promises, the quality of the content and the hardware road map for 2020 and beyond. The customer experience that we offer is very important to the business and I think the quality of the playing environment and the quality of service shown by the Blueprint team from concept to delivery has been exceptional.”

Tracy Baitup, Roadchef’s Director of Commercial Income, who was heavily involved in the refurbishment of the venues that went alongside the introduction of the new Blueprint equipment, said: “This was a massive logistical undertaking which was carried out successfully by the Blueprint, Merkur and Regal teams thanks to precise, almost military style planning. The challenge was to enhance the design and retail credentials of each venue but at the same time minimise the collective machine downtime. It’s an extremely delicate balance to get right but I am delighted to confirm the team excelled itself.”

Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Spotlight Sports Group has announced Sam Houlding will replace Mike Griffin as Chief Commercial Officer. Griffin left his role as Chief Revenue Officer of the group, on September 30th.

Griffin said ‘After an extended period, it is now time for me to step away from the Spotlight Sports Group and see what the next chapter of my life holds. It’s been more than a job, it has been a way of life, and like life itself, there have been some lows, but mainly it has been lots of highs, created by the brilliant people I have had the opportunity to meet and work with within the industry.  However, even in these difficult circumstances with a heavy heart, I have decided the time is right for me to leave Spotlight Sports Group to pursue an exciting new challenge. I leave a transformed business safe in the knowledge that we have the best talent in the industry working for Spotlight Sports Group. This wasn’t a decision I have taken lightly but one that has been in planning from pre-covid. I’m leaving a business that has changed so much in my time and has transformed into a leading data technology business.  I’m delighted my good friend and colleague, Sam Houlding, will take over the reins across the Spotlight Sports Group from 1st October and I trust he is going to continue to an incredible job.’

Houlding said ‘I am thrilled to be taking the role of Chief Commercial Officer at Spotlight Sports Group. This is an incredibly important time for the business and we are set up to continue our exciting evolution over the coming years thanks to the legacy Mike leaves after changing this business during his time here.  Mike’s journey at Spotlight Sports Group has seen the establishment of our strong affiliate channels, the rapid growth of our content syndication business, the launch of our trading platform – AllSported –  and integrating us with high street bookmakers across the UK and Ireland. Our aim is to continue to provide our partners with fantastic value across every area of our business and whilst Mike has set a very high bar over the years, my aim is to ensure that we continually improve the level of value we can offer and cement Spotlight Sports Group as the leading service provider in the industry.’

Spotlight Sports Group is the home to highly successful brands in the betting world including Racing Post, one of the most recognised and trusted names in sports betting with more than 34 years of intimate industry experience.

Football for Friendship unites world: Uganda musicians create fan chants for the new F4F World game

Football for Friendship unites world: Uganda musicians create fan chants for the new F4F World game
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

A transnational developers team (Russia, Ukraine, Germany, Brazil, Australia, China) is creating a new online game – the Football for Friendship World (F4F World) international football simulator. Fan chants created by musicians from Uganda will become a bright feature of the gameplay.

The new simulator will have several special features. One of them is the three modes: football player, coach, and fan. 18 chants of different levels of difficulty (with and without music) were created especially for the fan mode. The musicians will create over 40 tracks for the fans. Over 30 people from different countries of the world are creating the sound design for the game.

As fans, players will have the opportunity to choose favourite teams, earn fan merchandise, support the players of their favourite teams. The quality performance of the fan chants increases the players’ speed, affects their recovery after injuries, and gives the team extra points.

“What is football? First of all, football is emotions. It invokes incredible strong emotions, and it doesn’t matter whether you are playing it or watching your favourite team play or if you are playing an online game. You want to experience intense emotions and share them with your teammates, your friends. That’s why the element of fan support in football has such an important role in the development of the F4F World simulator,” notes Andrey Inyushin.

The release of the simulator is scheduled for the autumn of 2020. The game is created with the support of the International Children’s Social Programme Football for Friendship. The Football for Friendship World helps organise in real time games of international teams with players from different countries. The format is the same as in the offline championships of Football for Friendship, which unite players from 211 countries and regions of the world.

“I’m lucky to be one of the Football for Friendship participants. We were so amazed by the event that unites the whole world that we created and offered our friends from other countries a new song – the project’s hymn,” shares Kay Davis, a musician from Uganda. “When we found out that a new online game is under development, we wanted to participate in the sound design. We hope that the players like our fan chants, and that everyone will be able to immerse themselves into the atmosphere of a football game, and truly experience these emotions.”

DataArt is the developer of the F4F World game. The company created the Skillotron educational gaming platform that won multiple awards. It is also the global solutions developer for Nasdaq, Travelport, Ocado, Centrica/Hive, Paddy Power Betfair, IWG, Univision, Meetup. The game will be available on MS Windows, Apple macOS, Android, iOS.
