Wider Choice, Bigger Success! Under this claim Zitro will once again showcase its vast and steadily growing product library of successful Video Slot and Video Bingo games and solutions at the Ice Totally Gaming Show in London.

Centre stage will be taken by the various distinctive cabinet models that have been specifically designed to maximize the potential of Zitro’s gaming content and provide extraordinary gaming experiences as well as to create a diversified and attractive landscape on the casino floor. The portrait-type cabinet ILLUSION incorporates an impressive 43-inch Ultra HD curved monitor and a 21.5-inch digital topper. ALLURE on the other hand comes with three 27-inch Full HD Screens as well as the ‘Synchroscreens’, a powerful multimedia system integrated by the superior monitors that create an incredible immersive experience. Both cabinets were presented for the first time at the G2E 2019 trade show in Las Vegas and have since been installed in multiple Casinos all over the world, showing amazing results. Zitro’s popular Fusion cabinet, in both its upright and slant version, will also be showcased with more and even better content. All three cabinet types, ILLUSION, ALLURE and FUSION are compatible with Zitro’s powerful digital button panel ‘SmartDeck’.

In terms of content at ICE, the incredible multigame Link “Double Link” on the ILLUSION cabinet will have its worldwide debut. This fascinating new game will blow players’ mind as it offers new functionalities never seen before on a Link game! Get ready for double the fun with Double link!

Visitors will feel the impact when they arrive at the stunning ‘Shock Lounge’ at Zitro’s booth. Inaugurated for the first time at the end of 2019 in a Casino in Mexico, this shockingly cool area contains a broad and proven game library such as Link Shock, 88 Shock, Link Me Shock, Link Shock II and 88 Link Shock; a game library which is growing exponentially. All of these games are interconnected to the same mystery progressive jackpot. The biggest advantage of this area is that players can select their favourite game, but with the possibility to win the mystery shock prize that is triggered with an amazingly high frequency, providing more entertainment and rewards.

In addition, Zitro will present the winning combination of its multiway multigames with extra charged Link Bonuses like Bashiba on Illusion, or 88 Link Wild Duels and 88 Link Lucky Charms on Allure. And if that isn’t enough, the floor will also shine with Zitro’s classic Link multigames with a panoramic sign: Link King, Link Me and Link Shock, now with even more games, together with the popular LAP’s Blazing Pearls and Guns & Gold as well as its standalone game Hot Deal, now with 20 games.

Being the world leader in Video Bingo, visitors will also be able to enjoy Zitro’s newest Video Bingo game releases as well as new online content of both Video Bingo and Video Slots presented in its Zitro Interactive area for both B2B as well as B2C customers through its social Casino Let’s WinUp!.

Johnny Viveiros Ortiz, Founder and passionate leader of Zitro commented that: “It was only three years ago when we showcased our first Video Slot Machines at ICE Totally Gaming 2017. Now we do not only have a vast and steadily growing game library and hardware selection, but we also have the recognition of all major casino operators throughout the world, as they have experienced first-hand the success of our Video Slots and/or Video Bingo products, positioning us, as we strove to become, a global leader in the gaming industry. This unprecedented success story is only possible thanks to the absolute best team, of which I am fortunate to lead.”

Zitro can be found at booth number N6-160 at Ice Totally Gaming at the Excel Centre in London, from February 4th to 6th.

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.
