Wazdan Goes Live at Grand Casino, the Only Online Casino Allowed in Hungary

Wazdan is thrilled to announce its partnership with Grand Casino, Hungary, the only online casino allowed by the Hungarian Gaming Commission.
The partnership took place late in 2019 whereby Wazdan games went live on the Grand Casino site as part of a soft launch, marking a momentous occasion for the innovative game producer, securing a position to provide their games to the only player in the Hungarian market.
Grand Casino was launched in 2018 after the Hungarian Gaming Commission opened the door for online gaming to operate in the country through regulations that would provide players with a completely legal, safe way to enjoy gaming online.
After years of preparation, Grand Casino’s online interface, designed by their skilled team of gaming professionals, was made available to the public, delivering on the specific needs of users in the Hungarian market — providing security, data protection, gaming stability and enforcing responsible gambling.
Committed to providing players with quality entertainment, Grand Casino is selective to partner with only the best online game producers offering top-tier technology and player experiences, a position that Wazdan is proud to uphold.
 
So far, 15 Wazdan games have gone live at Grand Casino, all of which are long-time player favourites: Bars & 7s, Black Horse, Burning Reels, Colin the Cat, Fenix Play Deluxe, Fenix Play 27 Deluxe, Haunted Hospital, In The Forest, Jumping Fruits, Magic Fruits 4 Deluxe, Magic Hot 4 Deluxe, Mystery Jack Deluxe, Valhalla, Wild Guns, and Wild Jack. More games are to be released soon.
Wazdan is a top-tier, tech-driven slot game producer bringing their partners more than a decade of accumulated knowledge on just how to deliver high-quality experiences that delight both players and operators.
As an innovation-led organisation, Wazdan pioneer tech-forward solutions to captivate players and offer them gameplay that can be designed to their particular tastes. This is accomplished through the Unique Wazdan Features which are active in all Wazdan games, features which allow players to tailor their gaming experience.
Wazdan’s Volatility Levels allow players to adjust the volatility of their game. Double Screen Mode brings back the feeling of land-based slot machines where the paytable is viewable at all times. Energy Saving Mode works for mobile to extend the players’ battery life by up to 40 per cent, and Ultra Lite Mode decreases the time taken to load the game – perfect for poorly connected areas. The Unique Gamble Feature allows players to double their win in an instant, Ultra Fast Mode increases the game speed, and the latest Unique Wazdan Feature, Big Screen Mode, zooms the reels of the game to fill the entire screen.
“It has been thrilling to pioneer the online gaming sector in Hungary and we humbly recognise that while our success is in part the result of hard work from our highly talented team, the remaining success factors have to do with the partnerships we make, selecting the best gaming providers to deliver experiences to our players through our casino. As a leading slots producer with highly engaging, feature-rich games, we have been delighted to bring Wazdan onto the site,” says Robert Peters, CEO of Grand Casino and Omni Slots.
“We are extremely proud to partner with Grand Casino, a casino which has done so much to lead the gaming sector in Hungary and truly embodies the values that we too hold here at Wazdan. We’re excited to have our games live on the Grand Casino site, and we look forward to working more with the team to release new games that their players can enjoy,” says Andrzej Hyla, Head of Sales, at Wazdan.
 

 

Three seconds to impress: How to build a more effective key visual, by Betinvest

In the run-up to ICE London 2020, one of the largest and most important events in the industry, solutions providers are perfecting their current products and preparing to unveil new technological innovations. They are designing their stands, getting their promotional campaigns ready, and since the exhibition is an excellent place for meeting potential clients and making a strong impression, brands are particularly focused on their key visuals. COO at Betinvest Max Dubossarsky opens up about the importance of a key visual.
How important is a brand’s key visual in making a strong first impression?
Basically, in today’s world, businesses have just a few seconds to respond to questions potential clients might be asking: Who are you? What do you do? What have you got to offer?
Put yourself in the shoes of these prospective clients: there’s a wealth of offers out there, pulling their attention in all directions. Because of this, they don’t have much time at all to get to know a particular company, product or service.
In addition to this, statistics say that it takes just three seconds to make an initial assessment of the goods on offer. Three seconds to figure out whether or not they like what they see. In order to effectively communicate with the consumer and become a recognised brand, you need to work on your key visual. Of course, we’re not denying the importance of all the other elements involved in a business, we’re just talking about key visuals as part of a multi-faceted course of action.
 
What does an effective key visual look like?
A truly effective key visual represents the basic message of a brand, and delivers the idea to the consumer visually, extending across a whole range of media channels. When done right, this is a marketing approach which helps to make the brand’s products stand out on the market.
Key visuals are made up of elements of brand identity (logo, brand colours, fonts, etc.), as well as the key message which communicates the philosophy or selling point of a brand, and graphic elements and images.
In 2019–2020, Betinvest’s marketing communication has been based around a concept we’re calling Betting Genesis. The brand’s key visual includes the company colours – yellow and black, our font and logo, and a range of graphic elements, central to which is a hexagon and the following key message: “Your betting business starts here”.
 
How does such a distinctive key visual contribute to the Betinvest brand?
Firstly, our key visual differentiates us from other brands on the market and helps us attract the attention of potential clients.
Secondly, it helps users get to know our brand faster. As I mentioned earlier, a key visual is a way to provide a quick answer to those questions: Who are we? What do we do? What have we got to offer?
Thirdly, it creates awareness. Colours, fonts, message, images: these are all pieces of a puzzle which come together to create a unique offer. Creativity, understanding and relevance of the visual pieces help to create the right connotations you want to be associated with the brand, and make it memorable in the future.
 
What are the guidelines for making sure a key visual is effective?
There are three important things to remember: keep your message simple, keep it consistent for various devices, and be creative where possible.
Think about the three-second rule. Talk about your company briefly, simply and accurately. Your single visual concept should be scalable to any media channel. But creativity shouldn’t be just for creativity’s sake. It’s good when it achieves a specific objective and carries across a specific message. But unsuccessful designs or key messages can complicate or distort the key ideas behind the company. And you don’t want this to happen.
A key visual provides a mouthpiece for your brand. It is your manifesto, your idea that you express here and now. It represents your relationship with your customers and your ability to be noticed amongst countless other offers out there. It is part of the image surrounding your brand. Once they see you, potential users must be able to answer these questions: Who are you? What do you do? How can you be of help? Make yourself understood, set yourself apart, and leave a lasting impression.

 

1xBet kick off ‘Big plans for Africa’ with Nigerian licence acquisition

For football-focused Nigeria, the confirmation that one of the leading sports betting brands 1xBet has been granted a full National Licence in the country until 2024 is a major coup for players, operators and Nigerian sports clubs alike.
1xBet’s expansion plans across Africa have reached fever pitch as the company prepares to bolster its position in Nigeria with a new licence, new partnerships and an aim to “set new standards of betting culture” on the continent, according to the 1xBet team.
“We are well aware of Nigeria’s position as a renowned football-focused market,” they said. “In 2018 we signed a partnership agreement with the Nigeria Football Federation, the Nigeria national football team, as well as the Nigerian Premier League. In addition, we are official partners of the African Confederation of Football and the largest club tournaments of the continent. We have accumulated considerable experience while working with top football clubs such as Barcelona. Therefore, we not only offer Nigerian fans a wide range of betting options, but also a sense of involvement in the victories of their favourite teams. Football fans can be sure of 1xBet, where they always have a winning chance alongside their favourite clubs.”
As one of the leading operators now licenced in the country, 1xBet is keen to showcase how it will offer the Nigerian sports fans one of the widest lines of sports betting as well as odds on world of cinema, music, politics and other areas of life. Commenting on how this new licence will allow the brand to work more with local partners, the 1xBet team explained: “1xBet has decided to establish ourselves in Africa as we feel we have something valuable to offer the African betting market including players and affiliates. With over 1000 events offered daily across more than 60 sports, the 1xBet experience is an exciting world of betting enjoyment. We also have a great selection of online games. All this means that everyone can find viable options to make money. We want to give everyone who is legally able to place bets access to earning potential and look forward to finding interesting new partners in Nigeria with like-minded goals.”
The newly acquired National Licence by 1xBet has positioned the brand to legitimately operate in any part of the country, including in all the states and local government areas, broadening the company’s footprint across Africa. “In addition to Nigeria, on the African continent we work in Ghana, Senegal, Uganda, DR Congo, Cameroon, Zambia and Burundi. We have big plans for the region and consider Africa a very promising continent, where the number of fans of betting in general, and our company in particular, is constantly growing.”
Following headlines about betting on the continent in 2019, there is a renewed focus on responsible gaming across Africa, something which 1xBet is keen to drive forward with its unique position as one of the only full National Licence holders in Nigeria. “1xBet is a supporter of responsible betting,” the 1xBet team continued. “We comply with the laws of each country in which we operate. Given that our licence to work in Nigeria is valid until 2024, in the next five years we want to set new standards of betting culture. We will teach fans that with 1xBet they play according to simple and understandable rules that must be observed.
“In addition to the financial regulatory body’s transaction limit in Nigeria, and our concerted efforts to drastically reduce gaming addiction, we have also implemented a spending limit on our platform to further promote responsible gaming. Also, we ensure regular 1xBet attendance at various seminars of the regulatory authorities on responsible gaming.”
1xBet will be commencing its meetings with regulators and operators from Nigeria and other African countries at ICE London 2020, where the 1xBet team will be attending a dedicated ICE Africa networking breakfast as well as exhibiting on the show floor and delivering its expansion strategy in full. “We have a strong presence in many countries spread over continents around the world, so there will be a lot to showcase at ICE London,” they said. In regards to Nigeria, we will be using our position as National Licence holder to highlight the fact that we are a fully compliant brand in the sports betting industry.”
The 1xBet team concluded: “Our intention at ICE London 2020 is to promote 1xBet as an operator who brings their same level of established excellence to Nigeria as well as other African countries. We will also promote 1xBet’s wide range of betting options to the African market and beyond whilst sharing our vision for 2020 and what exciting upcoming events and industry related news we have to offer. The thrust of our message will be that by joining 1xBet you will always be riding the crest of a wave.”
The full 1xBet team will showcase its high odds, video streaming, in-house affiliate platform and portfolio of bonuses, live casino, branded slot games and more from Stand S3-250 at ICE London, ExCeL London, UK in February.

New Topgolf Swing Suite Enhances Foxwoods Resort Casino’s 21+ Guest Offering

Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, Connecticut is among the largest casinos in the United States, with more than 9 million square feet of gaming, entertainment, fine dining, and more. The recent addition of Topgolf Swing Suite demonstrates Foxwoods’ continued commitment to being a full-service resort destination, offering an unparalleled array of experiences for guests (21+) to enjoy.
Foxwoods’ Topgolf Swing Suite features two simulator bays – which fit up to eight people each – that provide guests the opportunity to play the popular Topgolf Swing Suite target game along with crowd favourites like Zombie Dodgeball, Hockey Shots, and Baseball Pitching. The Topgolf Swing Suite also includes throwback arcade games, a DJ booth, lounge seating and a full-service craft bar maximizing entertainment and socialization opportunities for guests. Within the first eight months of operation, the Swing Suite totalled over 33,000 covers.
Attracting a New Demographic with Swing Suite
Recent studies have shown that millennials, now the largest spending cohort, are spending more on experiences rather than goods. However, this trend has yet to extend to casinos. As noted by the Illinois Better Government Association, “millennials, practically weaned online, are embracing esports, fantasy sports and skill-gaming while shunning the slot machines and table gaming that long lured their parents to casinos.”
Foxwoods set out to create a one-of-a-kind experience built around Topgolf Swing Suite that would attract and retain millennial guests.
“It’s very unique because it’s much more than golf,” explains Senior VP of Resort Operations Jason Guyot. “By focusing on experience first, we have been able to create a unique space that integrates traditional casino gaming into a more modern, millennial-friendly environment. Our Swing Suite is really drawing a younger demographic to the resort…this interactive experience suits that demo well, and we’ve been able to draw more (people) into the facility because of Swing Suite.”
Foxwoods’ Topgolf Swing Suite also includes a full-service bar that features the first-ever craft cocktails available on the property, including speakeasy drinks reminiscent of the 1920’s and 1930’s such as the White Negroni, Cucumber Elderflower Fizz, and a Smoked Old Fashioned.  Shareable menu items such as smoked wings and Neapolitan pizzas were hand-selected by Foxwoods’ Executive Chef Eddie Allen to appeal to Swing Suite customers and are prepared in an onsite brick oven.

The partnership follows the introduction of new regulation which enabled the establishment of the country’s regulated online market earlier this year.
Swiss Casinos is the latest major European operator to partner with Playtech in order to access Playtech’s award winning casino suite and extensive selection of third-party content, highlighting Playtech’s position as the infrastructure of the industry in newly regulated and regulated markets.

Driven by the powerful Playtech IMS player management platform and data-driven business intelligence technology, Playtech Casino games and Live Casino delivers industry-leading in-house and premium branded games.
Shimon Akad, COO, Playtech, said: “Live casino is a hugely exciting growth area for Playtech, and we’re proud to partner with Swiss Casino on Switzerland’s first venture into this space. They are the ideal company to introduce Live to the country given their leading market position in Switzerland. Playtech has always maintained a focus on being the partner of choice across regulated and newly regulated markets. This kind of partnership, opening up a new sector in a newly regulated market, is a perfect example of our strategy in action. We look forward to a long, successful partnership with Swiss Casino.”
Marc Baumann, CEO Swiss Casinos Group, said: “The new Money Gaming Act has given casinos in Switzerland the opportunity to enter the online market for the first time. Swiss Casinos has successfully established itself as the market leader for landbased casinos in Switzerland. Choosing the partner for the online platform then was our top priority and we are delighted to partner with Playtech. In our partnership with Playtech, we want to continue the success story of Swiss Casinos in the online market as well. The outstanding offer, the high competence of the team and the flexibility in adapting to the regulatory requirements have laid the foundation for a successful and long-term cooperation.”

PlayOJO launches responsible gambling campaign in Sweden

Popular online casino brand launches a major ad campaign to make players aware of the tools it offers to help them continue to play
 PlayOJO, the fair online casino powered by SkillOnNet, has switched on a massive new TV, radio and digital advertising campaign in Sweden with a focus on responsible gambling.
The casino operator will run a Swedish version of its feel good “Thumbs Up” campaign which is currently being broadcast across major TV, radio and digital channels in the UK.
The key message is about gambling responsibly and how PlayOJO gives players in Sweden the tools and support they need to stay in control of their play.
The advert will be broadcast across the biggest tv channels including TV3, TV6, Kanal 5, but not between the hours of 4pm and 9pm to mitigate the risk of underage players seeing the commercial. This is in line with PlayOJO’s decision earlier in the year to stop advertising to players in Sweden between these hours, as part of its stance on responsible gambling. The campaign will also feature on national radio stations and online from September.
Peter Bennett, Head of Brand Marketing at PlayOJO, said: “PlayOJO is the fair casino where players are put first, and we wanted to reflect this in our latest advertising campaign in Sweden.
“The ads really drive home the controls we have in place to ensure that players are properly protected and the tools we give them to continue to play responsibly.
“As per our earlier decision to only advertise on TV in post peak periods, our latest campaign will not be broadcast between 4pm and 9pm each day making PlayOJO the only online casino in Sweden to focus on Responsible Gambling in all its advertising and stop advertising on TV before 9pm.
“We believe our Thumbs Up campaign will help further establish PlayOJO as a leading online casino destination in Sweden and the only truly fair place to play.”

New G-Digital Wheel of Fortune software – an instant hit at Casino Lugano

G-Digital Wheel of Fortune brings distinct benefits for Lugano Class players.
G-Digital is the software company in the gaming industry that brings digital content to life for promotional and marketing purposes. The additional advantages of having in-screen information that can be used for any marketing purpose has brought a great benefit to table game signage.
In collaboration with G-Digital, Casino Lugano SA has introduced the Wheel of Fortune for its current members of its Lugano Class. The goal of this marketing campaign was to gain new members of the Lugano Class club, reward the loyalty of its current members and consequentially increase the number of visits to the casino as well as increase the satisfaction of its current clients.  
The use of Lugano Class card on the Wheel of Fortune is very simple for members of the Lugano Class club. The customer scans the Lugano Class card barcode and then spins the wheel on the touchscreen monitor which can result in winning the prize. Meanwhile, the customer sees marketing and promotional messages on the other half of the 165cm (65”) screen. Every member of the Lugano Class club can scan the card barcode once per day. The printer automatically prints out a coupon when the prize is won. The coupon can then be used to claim the prize.
Naturally the marketing information – that can be freely chosen and managed by the casino management – receives additional attention during the wheel spin.
Mr. Cristiano Ruiu, Marketing Director at Casino Lugano, stated: “We are very pleased with the software provided by G-Digital. They adjusted the solution to our needs and specifics of our marketing campaign. Deployment of the G-Digital system at Casino Lugano was simple, quick and smooth thanks to outstanding customer support. The number and probability of the Wheel of Fortune winnings as well as the length of the marketing campaign are completely customizable. Changing marketing and promotional messages within G-Digital software is very simple. We also like the daily report on the progress of the campaign which is generated automatically. This gives us an excellent overview and daily control of the campaign.”  
Mr. Mirco Alghisi, Marketing & CRM Manager of Casino Lugano, added: “Lugano Class card allows our members to enter without any other documentation, gain loyalty points and use the wardrobe for free. Now it also provides a way to gain rewards from the Wheel of Fortune. By using G-Digital software we have acquired multiple new cardholders since the Wheel of Fortune is attractive to our customers.”
Miss Emanuela Ventrici, CEO of Casino Lugano, noted “More and more tools for managing marketing activities are transformed into the software. Computer technology is rapidly advancing and the Casino Lugano business policy is to keep up with innovations in order to offer our customers the very best and of the highest quality experience. In cooperation with G-Digital, we have successfully installed software which attracts customers to spin their luck as well as increase visibility of our ongoing marketing campaigns. From the management point of view and costs control, it is very important for us to be able to precisely adjust the duration of the campaign and the number of rewards. This way we can fully manage and control costs of the marketing campaign.”  
Mr. Ljubo Benko, General Manager of GD, concluded: “We are honoured to have had an opportunity to install a G-Digital solution in such an eminent casino as Casino Lugano is. It was a challenge for us, too, since it was our first deployment of Wheel of Fortune in a casino. Thanks to excellent collaboration with the Casino Lugano experts and their clear goals and innovative ideas, we developed Wheel of Fortune software on our G-Digital platform. G-Digital has proven once again as flexible and stable software. G-Digital is a very simple, intuitive and powerful software platform. We are especially pleased that casino management and their customers are satisfied with our G-Digital solution.”

Irish Licence and Further Expansion on the Cards for Mansion Group

It’s often cited as one of the realities of Brexit that there is a blurring of the lines between Irish and British business. In fact, there is such crossover that one almost assumes a brand available in the UK will simultaneously be trading in Ireland. Indeed, it’s difficult to think of major UK casino or betting brands that do not also have a presence in Ireland.
So, it may have come as a surprise to some that Mansion Group – the gaming group behind Mansion Casino, Casino.com Slots Heaven and MansionBet – has made its first foray into the Irish market this summer. An announcement of Mansion Group’s licence was made in late May 2019, with the Gibraltar-based business announcing just before Ireland played Gibraltar in a EURO 2020 qualifier, which Mansion sponsored.
Irish gaming laws to get upgrade
It enters the Irish market at an interesting time. While the betting and iGaming industry flourishes on the Emerald Isle, there is a concerted push by the Irish government to update the archaic gambling laws in the country. Much of the legislation in Ireland is actually derived from the 1931 Betting Act and the Gaming and Lotteries Act of 1956. Much of the gaming machine laws, for example, are designed with seaside arcades and penny slots in mind.
Mansion has wide recognition in the UK, currently sponsoring Premier League club Bournemouth and formerly sponsoring of Tottenham Hotspur. The group has won several awards, including “Most Responsible Online Gambling Operator” at the Capital Finance International Awards 2018 and “Online Casino Operator of the Year” at the International Gaming Awards 2018. The former accolade should stand the group in good stead as Ireland’s new gaming laws intend to put player protections and operator responsibility to the fore.

Further expansion for Mansion Group
It has been a good year for Mansion Group, which enjoys a loyal fanbase of casino players and punters. When we tried the live version of Casino.com, we were pleased to find a slick, well rounded live dealer platform powered by Playtech. However, the company has also struck a deal with Microgaming, and has offered a range of that developer’s top titles since May 2019. Other software providers found prominently on Mansion’s platforms include NetEnt, Red Tiger Gaming and Blueprint Gaming.
Mansion Group has been forthright in its assertion that entering the market in Ireland means trying to find a seat at the table among established competitors, but it’s a challenge the company seems to relish. Indeed, Ireland does not seem to be the final frontier for Mansion Group, and further international expansion has been mooted.
Of course, when any gaming group speaks of international expansion at the moment, America is the first word on people’s lips. Up to 39 states could feasibly have online sports betting and casino sites in the coming years after the Supreme Court decision on sports betting last year. Already, states like New Jersey have seen swathes of European gaming operators enter the legal online sportsbook and casino market. It isn’t yet abundantly clear if Mansion Group intends to follow that pathway, or if it will concentrate on extending its presence in Europe, Canada and Australasia.

 

EGT Spain and Gran Casino de Castellon team up to fascinate the players

Euro Games Technology notched up another success in Spain, increasing the number of its machines in the reputable Orenes Group’s gaming facilities with the first installation of Premier Curved cabinets in Gran Casino de Castellon. The partnership between the companies has evolved over the years with a number of deliveries of the slot bestsellers P-24/24 Up and P-24/32V Up with the Egypt Quest jackpot in most of the operator’s casinos.

I am delighted that EGT was chosen to diversify their product offerings and am glad to acknowledge that the shown initial results of the machines is another success in a row, taking into account the performance of the previously installed EGT equipment.”
Orenes Group has been a major participant in the recreation industry in Spain for over 40 years and has achieved a leading role in the casinos, bingos, amusement arcades, sports betting, hotel terminals and online gaming sub-sectors. “We aim to offer the latest and the most original products to our players, because their enjoyment is our sure bet” shared Paco Zahinos, director of Gran Casino Castellon. “The newly delivered cabinets of EGT came out to be a sure bet as well. Thanks to them we welcomed more guests in our casino who mostly appreciated their contemporary design, curved displays and variety of games. The cabinets have a very high occupancy rate which makes us also ponder several more installations with EGT Spain in near future.”
The P-42V St Curved model has refreshed the gaming halls of many operators around the world. Combined with the Collection series mixes of 48 various titles each, it becomes a valuable tool for players’ maximum satisfaction. The cabinet features a 42-inch portrait-oriented curved monitor with integrated touch screen and an optional 27-inch overhead topper. It ensures high comfort with its ergonomic design that also attracts from afar with its ambient LED illumination, highlighting the machine’s contour. The Premium Link system may connect all EGT and other manufacturers’ slot models to participate for common mystery and symbol-driven progressive jackpots. It is easy adjustable to different operators’ requirements and adds more thrill to the game.
“The installation in Gran Casino Castellon is the next stage of our progress in Spain,” concluded Mr. Kostovski. “In future we will keep on relying on new and high performing homologations for the country, like the trendy Premier Curved product line.”

Schleswig Holstein regulator reissues online casino licence to continue to operate its hugely popular DrückGlück brand in the country
SkillOnNet, the platform provider behind some of the most popular online casino brands in Europe, has had its Germany licence reissued by the Schleswig Holstein regulator so that it can continue to operate its DrückGlück brand in the country.

Michael Golembo from SkillOnNet, said: “We are thrilled to have been reissued our online casino licence in Schleswig-Holstein, Germany, allowing us to continue to offer players in the country the best possible online casino experience through DrückGlück.
“This is being backed by a major marketing campaign, first through extending our current partnership with Holstein Kiel – which to date has proved to be hugely successful for both parties – and then via a major TV advertising campaign across all the big channels.
“DrückGlück, with over 3,000 games on offer, has established itself as the online casino market leader in Schleswig-Holstein, Germany, and the renewal of our licence proves that we are doing this while meeting the highest possible regulatory standards.”
Tim Jost, Head of Marketing at Holstein Kiel, said: After a very good start to a very promising cooperation, DrückGlück and KSV Holstein-Kiel have agreed on a long-term continuation and expansion of the partnership. With DrückGlück at our side, we have gained a partner who is very committed to Holstein Kiel and always communicates with us in an open and personal way, which we greatly appreciate here.
“Furthermore, we are proud that the brand Holstein Kiel can also be promoted to other public spaces by its partner DrückGlück. Community actions for fans and partners of KSV Holstein are implemented. We are very much looking forward to further positioning the Holstein Kiel brand together with our partner and to be able to execute interesting campaigns for our fans and sponsors.
