New slot puts an innovative twist on Italy’s time-honoured table game

Premium slots and table games provider Habanero has announced the network-wide launch of its latest action-packed video slot, Scopa.

The thrilling new release invites players aboard an unforgettable train journey through some of Italy’s best-known cities, enjoying the country’s most popular card game of the same name along the way.

A proud national tradition dating back to the 18th century, Scopa (meaning broom) awards points for those who ‘sweep’ the table by matching another player’s card and is counted among Italy’s most-loved games.

Inspired by the card game of the same name, Scopa is the latest addition to Habanero’s 100+ portfolio and features an itinerary jam-packed with expanding wilds, stunning graphics, inviting original characters and an authentic soundtrack on an all-Italian trip through some of the country’s most-loved cultural capitals.

During the free spins round, Habanero’s thrilling revamp of the classic table fixture departs on an immersive journey through the nation’s historic regions, stopping respectively at Genoa, Milan, Naples, Tuscany and Venice in acknowledgment of the original game’s regional variants.

Commenting on the launch, Arcangelo Lonoce, Head of Business Development Europe at Habanero said:

“We are delighted to release the immersive hit Scopa across our operator network, and we are proud of what we have achieved in transposing the much-loved card game of the same name into this innovative slot formula.

“We hope that transporting players on a memorable exploration of Italy’s vibrant past while playing its favourite card game will prove to be the perfect hit – and we’re excited to be bringing it to our players in Italy and the world over.”

Esports Sportsbook Rivalry Announces Roll Out of Cryptocurrency Payments in Partnership with CoinCorner
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Isle of Man licensed betting platform, Rivalry, is the latest esports focused sportsbook to adapt to changing player preferences by supporting payments through Bitcoin. COVID-19 has, in many cases, served as an accelerant to slow-burning changes in consumer behaviour and preferences. Most notably: the meteoric rise of esports betting. While many operators were left scrambling to adapt to the overnight demand, a select few, such as Rivalry, were perfectly positioned to capitalize on the pandemic pivot. Much like cryptocurrencies, esports betting is proving to be anything but a fad.

Forward-thinking operators like Rivalry believe esports provide a glimpse into the future of betting. Their average esports bettor is in their twenties – an early adoptor and digital native that is no stranger to Bitcoin, but maybe less so to traditional betting mechanics and terminology. This brings new opportunities for operators to reshape and reimagine the betting experience.

Rivalry CEO, Steven Salz adds – “Our integration with CoinCorner has allowed us to offer Bitcoin as a payment option to our players and further simplify the payment experience. It’s partnerships like these that help us evolve the betting experience for a new cohort of bettors that think and behave differently”. 

UK Bitcoin exchange, CoinCorner, has seen business appetite adjusting to accommodate the recent rise in demand for online banking and payment methods, with an uptick in businesses keen to introduce Bitcoin payments as a way to gain competitive advantage by opening up to new markets, receiving cheaper fees and no chargebacks.

Sam Tipper, Business Development Manager at CoinCorner, said: “Since I joined CoinCorner in 2019, we’ve been making huge strides in assisting businesses across multiple industries to accept Bitcoin – preparing them for the new reality of a changing payment landscape. This is particularly true for businesses regulated out of the Isle of Man, like Rivalry, who cater to a global market.”

While the gambling industry debates on the staying power of esports as a profitable betting market, operators like Rivalry are adapting with ease and transforming the betting experience to meet the needs of an evolving user base.

United Remote has taken the strategic decision under CEO Jeremy Fall’s leadership to align with established aggregators who have critical mass to ensure maximum reach for their content partners. These powerful market-makers are drivers of putting partner games in front of more operators in more markets than ever before.

Multiple award-winner Wazdan has a stable of innovative slots, and a range of technology developed to position Wazdan at the forefront of the slots industry with the world’s first Volatility Levels™, Energy Saving Mode, Ultra Lite Mode and Ultra Fast Mode, central to the company’s mobile and player-friendliness, along with Unique Wazdan Features which generate added excitement  and fun for players.

Wazdan titles include mature classics such as Mayan Ritual™, Fruit Mania Deluxe, Sizzling 777 Deluxe, Hot Party Deluxe, Corrida Romance Deluxe, Football Mania Deluxe, Highway to Hell Deluxe, Fruits Go Bananas™, Spectrum and Los Muertos™ , while more recent releases feature games such as Reel Hero, Sonic Reels, 9Tigers, Black Horse Deluxe and Lucky9, amongst others. Wazdan’s latest release, Reel Hero, has already had great feedback from players, and was awarded ‘Slot of The Week’ by Slot Beats in June.

Andrzej Hyla, Head of Sales at Wazdan said: “This partnership with United Remote allows Wazdan to extend our reach further in certain key jurisdictions. 2020 is set to be a great year for fans of our games on the back of this new partnership with United Remote.”
