Racing Post to resume print publication from June 1st
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Racing Post has today announced it will resume publication and nationwide distribution of its print newspaper on June 1st to coincide with the resumption of British racing closely followed by Irish racing on June 8th.

Joining the daily publication on the return will be Racing Post weekly publications, Racing Post Weekender and the Racing and Football Outlook.

Production of the newspaper had to be temporarily suspended for the first time in its history in March after global sports, and particularly horseracing, had been halted due to the coronavirus pandemic. In the downtime, Racing Post has produced a reduced digital version of the newspaper online covering the fallout and resumption plans alongside reports on global racing and sports where it has been able to continue.

Horseracing in Britain is scheduled to return at Newcastle on Monday, June 1st, according to the BHA’s initial schedule for the resumption of the sport, while Naas will host the comeback fixture in Ireland when the sport returns on June 8th.

Top-quality racing will return with four British Classics and Royal Ascot taking centre stage in June in Britain, with the Tattersalls Irish 2,000 and 1,000 Guineas rescheduled for Friday, June 12th and Saturday, June 13th in Horse Racing Ireland’s revised schedule. All events will be behind closed doors and subject to strict government guidance around social distancing and hygiene requirements.

Racing Post will have coverage of every race at every meeting from the revised schedule as well as in-depth interviews with racing’s biggest names, tipping from renowned tipsters Paul Kealy and Tom Segal and features on the resumption spearheaded by award-winning writers Alastair Down and Lee Mottershead.

Commenting on the return of the Racing Post, editor Tom Kerr said: “It’s been an incredibly difficult two months for all those involved with racing on these shores. The temporary halt in production of the newspaper in March was something no one could have predicted earlier in the year but I’m delighted to say we are coming back better than ever. The team at Racing Post is prepared for the resumption of racing, and although it will be in a new world to the one we left behind we’re excited to be part of it.

“It’s been a pleasure to work with the talented team here on the plans for bringing the print newspaper back – no small task under the current circumstances – and I can’t wait to get my hands on that first print edition. We all love newspapers, and we know that for many of our customers there’s no substitute to the feel and experience of a print Racing Post as their daily guide to this great sport.”

Into the wild with Endorphina’s Buffalo 50

Into the wild with Endorphina’s Buffalo 50
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Imagine an enormous stretch of fields blending in with the deep valleys, horizons, waterfalls, and ancient giant sequoias. A place where beauty meets risks and where danger meets serenity.

Welcome to Endorphina’s slot taking place in the wild – Buffalo 50.

The American bison, often called buffalo, used to roam the plains – the golden land in the middle of North America.
But these buffalos aren’t the only ones that players can meet there. If they travel a bit deeper, they will meet the noble wolves, the proud eagles, and the very fast cougars.
The typical clear and fiery sky of the Yosemite Valley goes beyond anyone’s imagination. It’s not just a valley, but a shrine to human foresight. It came with no surprise that such a beautiful piece of American wildlife would inspire Endorphina’s developing and designing team for a new adventurous slot game.

Buffalo 50 is a 5-reel, 4-row, 50 paylines slot with stacked wilds and a free spins feature. The North American Buffalo symbolizes courage and stability – a perfect combination players are looking for in the games. That’s why the buffalo is a wild symbol that substitutes for all symbols, except for the scatter. The golden coin is also a scatter symbol. 3 scatters will win players 5 free spins with stacked wilds. Free spins can be retriggered, so players have to make sure to pay attention!
As always, the players have the chance to double their win up to 10 times, because Buffalo 50 also includes a classic Risk Game. The classic feature, that they come across in every game from Endorphina never fails to disappoint.

The Head of Account Management Gretta Kochkonyan has shared some insights on the new release:
“The plains and the animals which inhabit it has been an inspiration for all sorts of artists for a very long time. Our talented team could not miss the chance to bring together the magnificent scenery and heartening atmosphere of this place. Buffalo 50 has already been pre-released for a limited number of operators. The pre-release is a great advantage for the casinos since Endorphina’s fans can come and experience the new game a week before the actual release. The game has already proven itself to be a fabulous addition for the casinos and players.”

Buffalo 50 is the last game release in September by Endorphina. But autumn has only just begun, so there is no doubt that such a creative and prolific provider would delight us with even more legendary slots in the upcoming months.

Adverty appoints The Scale Factory to drive commercialization in Asia Pacific
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Adverty AB (publ) has appointed Singapore-based The Scale Factory, led by former Omnicom Group and Tapad executives, to drive commercialization in Asia Pacific by bringing Adverty’s seamless in-game advertising solution to brands and media agencies in the region.

Adverty, the leading in-game platform for advertisers, agencies and game developers, today announces a new partnership with Singapore-based The Scale Factory to drive the commercialization and go-to-market strategies for Adverty’s seamless in-game advertising solution in the APAC-region.

The Scale Factory, founded and led by Lars Bjoerge, former APAC EVP for Omnicom Group TBWA and Pierre Martenson, former Head of International Expansion for Tapad, will spearhead Adverty’s footprint in Asia by establishing a growth vision, implementing go-to-market strategies and taking on the commercial leadership by directly bringing Adverty’s seamless in-game advertising solution to brands, media agencies and other stakeholders in the region.

“We absolutely love what Adverty is doing to disrupt in-game advertising. With current in-game ad solutions, we are seeing more and more users reject brands that interrupt, and in some cases even destroy the gaming experience. Adverty has solved this elegantly by enabling brands to be present alongside gamers in this extremely valuable and rapidly growing consumer segment. We are thrilled to start building Adverty’s footprint across APAC”, says Lars Bjoerge, founder and Managing Partner at The Scale Factory.

Adverty’s industry-leading in-game advertising platform was awarded the IAB UK and IAB Sweden Gold Standard certificates in 2018 and 2020 respectively and enables access to all major programmatic buy-side platforms through partnerships with PubMatic, Smaato and BidSwitch. The company recently invented and announced a new in-game brand advertising format called In-Menu™, which enables contextually relevant IAB display banner ads on menu screens in between gameplay, alongside its current In-Play™ format, which allows brands to take over billboards and other virtual outdoor sites within games.

“The future of gaming is mobile, and in APAC the future is now. With an estimated number of gamers exceeding 1.5 billion people, soon crossing $100 billion in revenues, we see APAC as an integral part of our expansion in the coming years. We have had the pleasure of following the team behind The Scale Factory for quite some time and have been deeply impressed by their very hands-on approach. We are confident that we will achieve amazing things together”, explains Niklas Bakos, founder and CEO of Adverty.

The partnership is commencing on October 1st and will be rolled out in the region during Q4.
