Second Northern Lights title in industry-leading distribution partnership programme

Yggdrasil, the innovative online gaming solutions provider, has released All Star Knockout in association with partner studio Northern Lights, the latest in the supplier’s market-leading global content distribution initiative, YG Masters.

The 5×4 reel video slot features 20 paylines and an innovative Award Board, which activates the All Star Knockout Bonus.

The Award Board has five boxes with spots for eight stars to collect as they randomly land on the reels. When a player starts a game session, 12 bonus stars are randomly awarded and populate the board. If one or more box is filled with stars, the bonus round is triggered.

During the bonus feature, players are given an initial five free spins, with an additional two free spins awarded for every box of the board that is filled during the round. When the feature is triggered, a multiplier is selected and applies to all wins.

Andrew Goodale, CEO of Northern Lights, said: All Star Knockout is our latest creation via the YG Masters initiative and offers a colourful and exciting take on classic fruit machine symbols. With an innovative award board bonusing system, players can easily track their progress as they strive to land the lucrative free spins feature.

“Our partnership with Yggdrasil has been hugely beneficial for us and assisted us in further growing our business. We are very excited about what the future holds.”

Stuart McCarthy, Head of Partner Strategy & Sourcing at Yggdrasil, said: “All Star Knockout is an excellent addition to our the YG Masters games portfolio and another testament to the success of this element of our business which gives us fresh and innovative content from the world’s best independent studios.

“Our YG Masters programme continues to go from strength-to-strength and the launch of our Publishing division will only cement its status as one of the leading development platforms in the industry.”

As part of the introduction of its new Publishing division earlier this year, Yggdrasil has significantly updated its market leading YG Masters programme, which was first launched in 2018. The key upgrade driver is the introduction of GATI (Game Adaptation Tools & Interface) which offers a framework to build online games and is a disruptor to the existing iGaming industry.

Partners will be able to set up and run their own YG Masters across the globe with their own studio partners based on Yggdrasil’s advanced technology, framework, systems and tools. This offers clients an opportunity beyond the traditional aggregation structure, giving them unlimited potential to scale their business and realise rapid organic growth.

Bitcoin Gaming Pioneer Cloudbet Marks Stablecoin Foray With Tether Launch
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Cloudbet, the pioneering crypto sportsbook and casino, has added USD Tether to the portfolio of coins available to its customers, marking the operator’s first foray into stablecoin betting.

After a month of testing with a small group of players, Cloudbet has now enabled all of its customers to deposit, withdraw and bet with USDT, the digital token whose value is linked to the U.S. dollar.

New players who deposit USDT with Cloudbet are eligible for a welcome bonus of up to 1000 USDT. Customers can buy the coin on the site with their credit cards or Apple Pay.

Since launching in 2013, Cloudbet has built a well-earned reputation as a trusted bitcoin operator that added Bitcoin Cash in early 2018 and Ethereum earlier this year. USDT and Ethereum are among the host of new features on Cloudbet’s new website, which the company launched at the end of April.

Other feature additions include UFC in-play betting, new language options and a comprehensive esports vertical, all aimed at making Cloudbet’s all-round offering a definitive market leader in crypto gaming.”We’ve accelerated our feature rollouts tremendously, thanks to the systems and processes we put in place to build the new website,” a Cloudbet spokesman said. “The market can look forward to many more new features and new coins in the coming months.”

Stablecoins such as USDT have been put forward as a solution for players seeking to protect the value of their cryptocurrency winnings from the extreme fluctuations in price experienced by holders of non-stablecoins.

Because its value is fixed on a 1-to-1 basis with the USD, the fiat value of winnings in Tether does not fluctuate along with market prices. For this reason, stablecoins have been offered up as the key to winning over a more fiat-friendly audience to experience the benefits of cryptocurrency gaming.

“Since launch, a fundamental part of our philosophy has been about empowering players with technologies that solve their problems,” Cloudbet’s spokesman said. “USDT and stablecoins are an extension of that.”

Cloudbet’s sportsbook offers the best prices and highest limits on a multitude of global sporting markets around the world, while the Cloudbet casino has hundreds of slots and live-dealer table games.

iSoftBet scores slot hit with Hot Shots 2

Supercharged sequel sees players shoot for epic wins with unlimited multipliers and unique Ultra Bet feature

 iSoftBet, the leading online and mobile casino content provider, has launched Hot Shots 2, inviting players to lace up their boots and score huge wins in this supercharged sequel.

Always at the forefront of innovation, iSoftbet has included their new Ultra Bet* feature on this slot-based football extravaganza, allowing players to place a single wager to unlock 50 high-octane games, collecting wins, multiplier stars and bonus rounds along the way. Ultra Bet offers a unique way to play, prioritising the most exciting game features for a more engaging player experience.

Launched at the same time as live action football leagues resume, Hot Shots 2 takes the proven successful model from the original Hot Shots, with expanding Wilds, and takes it to another level with an unlimited increasing win multiplier during Free Spins for even more ways to strike it lucky.

Five quirky footballers are the high paying symbols, each one representing their own country. A German Shepherd, French cockerel, Spanish Bull, British Bulldog and Portuguese Fox all battle it out for possession of the reels, ready to fire up players’ fortunes in this feature-filled slot.

Players can win big in a host of ways, including from win multipliers, expanding Wilds, Free Spins bonuses and the special Wild Golden Ball. Hit the back of the net with this symbol during Free Spins and the ball expands both vertically and horizontally as well as increasing the win multiplier.

Three or more Hot Shots symbols will see you qualify for the Free Spins round, where the unlimited win multiplier is in play and regular footballs on reels 2, 3 or 4 will expand to form multiple wilds. And it’s not full-time yet, as Free Spins can also be retriggered via bonus symbols during the feature.

Mark Claxton, Head of Games at iSoftBet, said: “Hot Shots was so popular we decided to launch a sequel with a supercharged bonus for players to score even bigger wins. Launching our new Ultra Bet feature on this game made perfect sense as it embraces the exciting and frantic nature of the “beautiful game” while also offering players a whole new way to play slots.

“The launch of Hot Shots 2 is perfectly timed with the restart of many football leagues around the world, something so many people have been eager to see. We are delighted with the result of the game and confident it will prove to be the perfect strike partner for sport-starved slot fans.”

(*Ultra Bet not available in some markets)

iSoftBet is a leader in compliance, licensed in 17 regulated markets across the globe and providing brands with the highest quality casino games and maximum speed to market.

The 7×7 videoslot is packed with fruity flavour and colour, with a cluster pay mechanic setting it apart from your traditional game. With every successful spin, more fruit cascades down onto the reels with Pragmatic Play’s tumbling wins feature.
