Australian provider’s latest offering gives the potential for huge wins with Respin Bonus feature

Slot design specialist Lightning Box is taking players on a fast-paced Arizona adventure in its latest release, Respin Racer.

Set against a rocky desert highway, the 3×5 reel 25-line slot sees the Road Runner scorch across the dirt as he looks to rev up the held wilds and multipliers.

Respin Racer contains a Respin Bonus feature which is triggered when six positions contain one of the golden symbols. These turn into stacked Road Runner symbols and if the wild kangaroo lands, players will be on course for big payouts of up to nine times their line win.

Peter Causley, CEO and co-founder of Lightning Box, said: “Get ready to strap in with our latest game, Respin Racer, which is sure to get hearts pumping and players on the edge of their seats.

“The latest addition to our portfolio has a number of innovative elements including expanding wilds and the possibility of resetting spins during the Respin Bonus feature, all of which are designed to make sure players keep their pedal to the metal.”

IBIA PR: 50 alerts reported by the International Betting Integrity Association in Q3
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

The International Betting Integrity Association (IBIA) reported 50 cases of suspicious betting to the relevant authorities during the third quarter (Q3) of 2019, bringing the annual total so far to 138 cases. Tennis (30) and football (15) constituted 90% of all alerts reported during Q3, with Europe (42%) and Asia (36%) maintaining their positions as the primary location of sporting events on which alerts were generated during that period.

Khalid Ali, Secretary General of the International Betting Integrity Association, stated: “The year to date has seen a significant downturn in alerts, notably on tennis. We welcome the ongoing efforts of the sport to work closely with us and to identify and impose sanctions on corrupt players. The scope of the association’s unique and global leading monitoring system has been boosted by four new members during 2019, with discussions ongoing with a number of other companies interested in investing in integrity and protecting their businesses from corruption.”

The 50 alerts reported during Q3 covered six sports, spanning five different continents. This is very similar to the 51 alerts reported in Q2 2019, but is a reduction of 30% on the 72 alerts in Q3 2018. Whilst the 30 tennis alerts reported in Q3 2019 represent a 40% reduction on the 50 tennis alerts reported in Q3 2018. The annual total to date of 138 cases represents a 25% drop on the 184 cases at the same point in 2018 and is primarily a result of the fall in tennis alerts, predominantly caused by a reduction in alerts at the ITF Tour level.

The International Betting Integrity Association is the leading global voice on integrity for the licensed betting industry. It is run by operators for operators, protecting its members from corruption through collective action. Its monitoring and alert platform is a highly effective anti-corruption tool that detects and reports suspicious activity on its members’ betting markets. The association has longstanding information sharing partnerships with leading sports and gambling regulators to utilise its data and prosecute corruption. It represents the sector at high-level policy discussion forums such as the IOC, UN, Council of Europe and European Commission.

The association publishes quarterly reports covering the integrity alerts reported through its monitoring and alert platform. The Q3 report can be viewed here along with previous reports.
