Soft2Bet to Add Playtech Slots Suite across 17 Brands

Playtech’s hot streak of important announcements continues into the new week as it became known this morning that the gambling software giant has inked a multi-year content delivery deal with online casino and sports betting operator Soft2Bet.

This recently forged partnership enables Soft2Bet to launch more than 100 premium Playtech-crafted games across its many online casino brands.

Growing rapidly and making a name for itself in the provision of iGaming and wagering services, Soft2Bet currently manages 17 tailor-made online casinos and sportsbooks. The operator celebrated the launch of its newest brand – Rabona – late last year.

Named after the popular football skill, Rabona was the sixth sports betting operation to go live under the Soft2Bet umbrella. The brand features a unique gamification tool that provides bettors with the opportunity to collect cards with popular football teams and players by earning points with every bet they place.

Soft2Bet players across its gaming brands can currently access casino titles from more than 30 top-tier industry providers as well as from emerging game development studios. Its online casinos are available in a number of lucrative markets, including Japan after Soft2Bet ventured into the Asian nation with its AlfCasino operation.

Delivering “Richer, More Varied Experience”

As part of its deal with Playtech, Soft2Bet will be able to add more than 100 premium games delivered by Playtech, including slots, progressive jackpot titles, and table games. The titles will be available across all of the operator’s brands.

The addition of Playtech’s content will further enrich Soft2Bet’s offering and would strengthen the company as it looks to expand its international presence and enter more regulated markets.

Commenting on their multi-year partnership with Playtech, Soft2Bet Head of Casino Teodora Breskovska said that the provider has secured them with access to premium quality slot games that are “top performers in our key markets.”

Ms. Breskovska went on that their players would be particularly “thrilled to access” some of the most popular jackpot titles in the iGaming industry that are worth hundreds of thousands in prize money.

James Frendo, Director of Casino at Playtech, said that they are pleased to be working with Soft2Bet and bring some of the most popular online casino games to brand-new audiences.

The Playtech official added that “with a carefully selected mix of branded titles, original content and games supported by major jackpots, we’re confident we can help Soft2Bet deliver an even richer, more varied experience for their players.”

Last week, Playtech announced several important partnerships with major gambling operators. The company signed a four-year deal with British bookmaker Betfred for the delivery of its Casino, Live Casino, Bingo, and Poker suite to the operator.

It was last week again when Playtech and its long-term partner GVC Holdings announced the launch of three new Live Roulette tables for the Spanish online gambling market.

Virginia Moves to Legalize Sports Betting, Casino Gambling

Virginia lawmakers have historically been opposed to any form of gambling expansion but the promise of new revenue flows to state coffers and keeping gambling money within state confines has resulted in bipartisan support for a duo of bills calling for the legalization of new gambling offerings.

Both chambers of the Virginia Legislature passed on Sunday HB 896 and SB 384 that authorize the introduction of retail and online sports betting and permit the construction of up to four casinos around the state.

The two pieces should now be signed by Governor Ralph Northam in order to become law.

Limited Retail Sportsbooks, Betting Apps Could Go Live by Late 2020

The Sunday passage of the two bills makes Virginia the latest state to enter the US sports betting frenzy.

The two pieces pave the way for the start of mobile sports betting by the end of the year. However, the introduction of retail sportsbooks could take a little longer. In addition, under the bills there would be limited number of retail betting licenses up for grabs.

The Virginia Lottery is now tasked with regulating the state’s newly expanded gambling industry. The agency is required to set the rules under which sports betting services would be provided in Virginia by mid-September.

Under the recently passed sports betting bill, the Lottery’s Director “may issue from four to twelve permits at one time and is directed to issue an amount of permits that would maximize tax revenue collected pursuant to the bill.”

The introduction of casino gambling to state residents would take longer, though, as the development of casinos requires voter referendums in the cities of Bristol, Danville, Norfolk, Portsmouth, and Richmond. Such referendums can take place as early as this coming November.

Under the sports betting bill, wagering would be taxed at 15% on gross revenue. In addition, authorized operators would be required to use official league data.

Lawmakers Ban Betting on Virginia College Sports

Betting on college sports and whether it should be banned or at least limited was among the most widely debated topics on Sunday. The sports betting bill’s provisions regarding college wagering could have derailed the entire effort if opponents and proponents had failed to reach some sort of compromise.

An original version of the Senate sports betting bill authorized betting on all college sports. However, some House lawmakers called for a total ban on betting on college sports.

The final version of the bill that is now heading to Gov. Northam’s desk prohibits wagering on collegiate games involving Virginia teams and placing prop bets on any individual college athlete.

While many welcomed the restrictions, Virginia Delegate Marcus Simon argued that those would allow an illegal market to continue to thrive and that this is actually “more damaging” than enabling bettors to place wagers on Virginia’s teams in a legal setting.

Red Tiger Launches Casino Titles across Glitnor Brands

Online casino games developer and software provider Red Tiger continues its streak of important partnerships with a recently signed content supply deal with rapidly growing iGaming group Glitnor.

The partnership will see Red Tiger expand its presence across core existing markets as well as new territories, while boosting the offering available on Glitnor’s flagship online casino brands.

After a successful integration, Red Tiger announced today that its entire games library is now available across Glitnor’s Lucky Casino and Gambola operations. This means that players at the two online casinos now have access to titles such as Pirates’ Plenty, Pirates’ Plenty – Battle for Gold, Dragon’s Luck Megaways, and Eagle Riches, among others.

Aside from its slots range, Red Tiger has also provided its newest partner and its iGaming operations with access to its daily and hourly jackpots.

The software provider debuted its Daily Drop Jackpot Network in April 2019. Red Tiger’s jackpots offering was received quite well by players in a number of regulated markets. The company stepped up its jackpot game later in 2019 with the introduction of hourly jackpot prizes.

News about Red Tiger going live with Glitnor’s brands arrive hot on the heels of last week’s launch of the provider’s content with online gambling operator Premier Gaming. The operator’s Pronto Casino and Premier Live Casino now offer Red Tiger’s entire slots library in addition to content from other providers.

Expansion in Lucrative Markets

Red Tiger’s partnership with Glitnor would enable the provider to extend its reach across core Nordic markets, the rest of Europe, and Japan where both Lucky Casino and Gambola boast a large customer base.

Commenting on their partnership with Glitnor, Red Tiger Commercial Director Chris Looney said that the group is one of the fastest growing iGaming companies and that the deal “highlights the worldwide appeal of our content.”

Glitnor Group Director Martin Sidenvall said that “Red Tiger has a fantastic reputation for producing top quality games, and we’re thrilled to announce this commercial agreement with them.”

The gaming group’s director went on that “delivering the best slots to our customers is paramount for us, and it’s great that our players now have access to Red Tiger’s titles and the great functionality that comes with them.”

It should be noted that aside from its B2C gaming brands, Glitnor is also the company behind newly established online casino content provider Swintt. While it may be an industry newcomer, Swintt already boasts a nice portfolio of more than two dozens of titles, including the Master of Books, Legendary, and Heart of Earth slots.

Glitnor also runs the Dora Mahjong real money player-to-player Mahjong brand. The omni-channel operation provides players with the opportunity to choose from several cash game tables or take part in tournies. The brand focuses on the Japanese iGaming market.

UK Gambling Commission Suspends Second License In As Many Weeks

After a years-long pattern of slapping hefty fines on errant online gambling companies, the UK Gambling Commission has toughened its approach toward those breaching the UK’s gambling rules and regulations and has now begun suspending licenses held by such violators.

The regulator announced this week that it has instigated a review into online gambling operator Stakers under Section 116 of the Gambling Act 2005 and has suspended the Malta-based company’s license in the UK.

The Gambling Commission further explained that its decision was prompted by a “number of compliance issues.” Stakers’ license suspension took effect on March 4 and will remain in effect throughout the regulator’s review into the operators activities in the UK.

Stakers, which is also licensed by the Malta Gaming Authority, conducts online casino and sports betting activities.

Its license suspension in the UK makes it illegal to provide services to local gambling customers through its website. The Gambling Commission has instructed the company to facilitate its players accessing their accounts to withdraw their funds and to advise them not to place any wagers through the Stakers website.

News about the suspension of Stakers’ license arrived a few weeks after UK’s gambling regulator suspended the license of Addison Global Limited, which traded as MoPlay. The troubled sports betting operator stopped processing customers’ withdrawals just a few days after its license suspension and announced that it was insolvent.

Why Was Stakers’ License Suspended?

While no information on what Stakers’ violations were was provided, the Gambling Commission said that the review into the operator’s license was initiated under Section 116 of the Gambling Act.

The regulator also noted that it suspected Stakers had breached a condition of its license (Section 116 (2)(a) of the Act which made it unsuitable to carry on licensed activities on the territory of the UK.

Under Section 116 of the Gambling Act, the nation’s gambling watchdog can instigate a review into a UK-licensed operator if there is a reason to “suspect that activities may have been carried on in purported reliance on the licence but not in accordance with a condition of the licence.

Section 116 goes on that a review can also be launched if the Gambling Commission:

(b) believes the licensee, or a person who exercises a function in connection with or is interested in the licensed activities, has acquired a conviction of a kind [..], or
(c) for any reason –
(i) suspects that the licensee may be unsuitable to carry on the licensed activities, or
(ii) thinks that a review would be appropriate.

News about the suspension of Stakers’ license emerged just days after another gambling operator was penalized by the Gambling Commission.

The regulator slapped late last month a £3 million penalty package on Mr Green over shortcomings in the operator’s social responsibility and anti-money laundering controls. Mr Green was purchased by William Hill last year in a £242 million deal.

Two Michigan Casinos to Go Live with Sports Betting on March 11

Michigan will officially join the US sports betting fold this coming Wednesday when two of Detroit’s commercial casinos are set to launch their wagering operations.

The start of legal athletic gambling in the state is subject to final regulatory approval from the Michigan Gaming Control Board. The regulator is expected to grant that final approval during a Tuesday meeting.

Michigan legalizes spots betting and online casino-style gaming late last year. Under a set of bills rubber-stamped by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, the state’s casinos can go live with retail and digital wagering and online gambling.

On Wednesday, two of Michigan’s three commercial casinos, all located in Detroit, will debut their retail sportsbooks. However, sports enthusiasts in the state will have to wait a little longer before being able to place bets via their smartphones.

The Gaming Control Board is yet to draft mobile wagering regulations. It is expected that digital sports betting will become available in early 2021.

MGM Grand Detroit and Greektown Casino-Hotel will be the state’s first two casinos to go live with sports betting following the legalization of the practice. The two properties will take their first bets at 1 am on Wednesday, March 11.

MGM Grand is owned by MGM Resorts International, while Greektown was acquired last year by Penn National Gaming.

First Sportsbooks

A spokesperson for MGM has confirmed the imminent launch of sports betting at MGM Grand Detroit. Penn National will use its Barstool Sportsbook brand for the sports betting facility at Greektown. The casino operator purchased a 36% stake in Barstool Sports not long ago and is now looking to utilize the partnership with the digital sports media company as it expands its sports betting presence across different states.

It is still unclear whether MotorCity Casino in Detroit will enter the Michigan sports betting mix in the coming days. According to recent reports, the gambling venue has partnered wagering operator FanDuel for the operation of a retail sportsbook and a betting app when digital gambling becomes available in the state.

Michigan’s recently enforced sports gambling legislation also authorizes the state’s 23 tribal casinos to offer sports betting. A number of operators have already teamed up with some of the state’s tribes to enter its nascent sports betting market.

FOX Bet, PointsBet, and William Hill have been among those companies to have secured their entry in Michigan through deals with tribal casinos.

William Hill recently announced that it is set to debut a retail sportsbook at Turtle Creek Casino and a satellite facility at Leelanau Sands Casino & Lodge before the start of the new NFL season. Both casinos are operated by the Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Chippewa Indians, a federally recognized Michigan-based tribe.

Michigan will be the second state to go live with sports betting this week after Rivers Casino Des Plaines is set to launch Illinois’ first sportsbook on Monday.

Videoslots’ Battle of Slots Now Features Red Tiger Games

Popular online casino Videoslots has expanded the offering available across its Battle of Slots gamification tool with the recent addition of games from content provider Red Tiger.

Battle of Slots is a promotioonal concept that offers slots enthusiasts access to a poker-style lobby that aims to increase social interaction among players and provide them with the chance to go head-to-head with fellow players and win a share of guaranteed pools.

Battle of Slots is one of several promotional concepts debuted by Videoslots in the years after the online casino joined the competitive iGaming market in 2011. All three promotional tools are available across all devices and aim to boost the operator’s engagement and retention levels.

Battle of Slots includes popular slot titles from many of the world’s leading suppliers of content for the online gaming industry. With the recent addition of content from Red Tiger, Videoslots said that its Battle of Slots product now provides players with access to more premium games than ever.

The deal with Videoslots and the addition of its library of slots to its Battle of Slots offering came as the latest in a series of positive developments announced by Red Tiger, which is now part of Swedish gaming provider NetEnt, in recent weeks.

A Great Form of Entertainment

Commenting on the addition of Red Tiger games to the offering already available on Battle of Slots, Videoslots Head of Casino William Ahlberg said that their gamification tool is one of their proudest creations and that “it’s only right that we continue to add the very best content for players to enjoy.”

Of what drives them to expand the offering available to players through Battle of Slots, Mr. Ahlberg said that they believe “gaming should be social and our poker-style lobby helps players engage with one another as a great form of entertainment while still giving them the chance to win some cash.”

The addition of Red Tiger content to Battle of Slots builds on an already successful relationship between the provider and Videoslots, The online casino first launched Red Tiger games back in the fall of 2016.

Last October, Videoslots also announced that it has utilized Red Tiger’s Jackpot Network across several of the supplier’s titles available to customers of the online casino to deliver daily and hourly jackpots.

The games that gained access to the Jackpots Network included Pirate’s Plenty – Battle for Gold, Dragon’s Fire, Wild Elements, and Phoenix Fire. All of these feature high-end graphics and elaborate math models to enhance player experience.

News about Red Tiger and Videoslots’ expanded partnership followed this week’s announcement that the provider has launched its slots library with Malta and Sweden-licensed iGaming operator Premier Gaming and its brands Pronto Casino and Premier Live Casino.

Rivers Casino to Open Illinois’ First Sports Betting Facility

Rivers Casino Des Plaines is set to take Illinois’ first legal bet after state lawmakers legalized sports wagering last summer as part of a larger gambling expansion initiative.

The BetRivers Sportsbook will welcome first sports enthusiasts on Monday, March 9. The sports betting facility will open for business at noon after a 10 am ceremony at Rivers Casino.

Professional ice hockey analyst Eddie Olczyk will place the state’s first bet, a spokesperson for the Des Plaines-based casino said this past Friday.

The BetRivers Sportsbook includes a 4,840-square-foot sports bar with a 47-foot-wide video wall. Bettors will be able to place their bets at five betting windows and 30 self-service betting kiosks. There will also be TVs throughout the lounge as well as a full-service bar.

It is also understood that BetRivers will go live with a betting website and a mobile app later this year.

Illinois legalized sports betting in the summer of 2019. Provisions for bringing legal athletic wagering to the state were tacked onto a larger gambling expansion bill that survived through all legislative hurdles and was supported by Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker.

Some of the tax revenue from legal sports betting would be used to finance the Governor’s ambitious $45 billion Rebuild Illinois capital plan.

Sports Betting Coming to Illinois in Time for March Madness

The Monday launch of Rivers Casino’s sportsbook means that Illinois will have at least one betting facility by the start of this year’s March Madness. The basketball tourney traditionally attracts quite a lot of betting action, but prior to the strikedown of the federal ban on athletic gambling in 2018, the majority of that action had taken place on offshore websites.

First reports that Illinois would enter the sports betting fold in time for the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Tournament emerged in early February. Back then, the Illinois Gaming Board granted the first three temporary sports betting licenses to state casinos interested to provide wagering services.

Rivers Casino was among the first three casinos to be issued permits. The state gambling regulator granted three more such licenses a few days ago. To date, Argosy Casino Alton, Grand Victoria Casino Elgin, Rivers Casino Des Plaines, the two Hollywood Casinos in Aurora and Joliet, and Par-A-Dice Hotel and Casino in Peoria have all obtained temporary permits from the Gaming Board.

Under Illinois’ sports betting law, the state’s land-based casinos, racetracks, and sports venues with seating capacity of 17,000 people are eligible to receive sports betting licenses.

Many expected that Argosy Casino would be the first property to launch its retail sportsbook as it has been advertising March Madness start of wagering operations for several weeks.

The state’s casinos will also be able to launch digital sportsbooks in addition to their retail operations. However, the state will only grant three online-only licenses and that will happen 18 months after the start of sports betting. This means that companies like DraftKings and FanDuel will not be able to enter Illinois until at least September 2021.

Red Tiger Announces Content Supply Deal with Premier Gaming

Online casino content supplier Red Tiger has expanded its client list with one more iGaming operator that operates in key regulated markets.

The provider announced this past Thursday that it has teamed up with Premier Gaming and that its latest online slot titles are already available across the operator’s online casino brands.

Premium Gaming is the company behind the Pronto Casino and Premier Live Casino iGaming brands. Both are licensed by the gambling regulators of Malta and Sweden which means that they target players in some of the largest regulated markets across Europe.

Premier Gaming’s two brands allow players to use Pay N Play style deposits. Thanks to this, customers of the two online casinos can now access Red Tiger’s games without having to register an account.

News about the provider’s launch with Premier Gaming arrive hot on the heels of an announcement made by Red Tiger a few days ago that it has teamed up with Irish bookmaker BoyleSports and has become the exclusive supplier of content on the operator’s recently revamped Vegas tab.

Red Tiger has also provided gambling solutions provider SoftSwiss with access to its slots portfolio as it looks to expand its presence in additional markets and grow its client network.

Regulated Expansion Is a Key Tenet

Red Tiger’s slot titles have already gone live with Pronto Casino and Premier Live Casino. The provider’s highly popular Daily Jackpots Network is set to be rolled out across the two online casinos in the coming weeks.

Commenting on their latest major partnership, Red Tiger Commercial Director Chris Looney said that extending their global reach “across regulated territories is a key tenet of our commercial strategy” and that this is why they are delighted to team up with Premier Gaming, which is a well-established iGaming operator with strong presence in the Swedish, Finnish, and German markets.

Premier Gaming CEO Marvin Abela said that Red Tiger has great games and these are “a welcome addition to our offering”. The gambling operator’s top official went on that they “pride ourselves on providing world-class entertainment experiences, so it’s great to continue that pattern with a new set of truly immersive titles.”

Red Tiger has also recently added a new exciting title to its ever-growing content portfolio. Wings of Ra comes with a 5×3 grid and unique features. The Ancient Egypt-themed game rewards players for their engagement with a momentum-building free spins progressive feature.

Wings of Ra was the first Red Tiger title to be built on the company’s new Pixi.js framework, which aims to enhance the gameplay’s smoothness for improved player experience.

FanDuel Forges Michigan Sports Betting Partnership

FanDuel has reportedly forged a sports betting partnership with MotorCity Casino in Detroit, known to be one of Michigan’s three commercial casinos, as the state looks to mark the start of legal athletic gambling ahead of this year’s March Madness basketball tourney.

Sports betting-focused news outlet Legal Sports Report reported Thursday citing sources that the partnership between FanDuel and MotorCity Casino would likely involve the opening of a retail sportsbook onsite as well as the operation of a digital sportsbook and the provision of online gaming when Michigan regulations permit such products.

Michigan legalized retail and digital sports betting and online casino-style gaming late last year when Gov. Gretchen Whitmer signed a set of bills authorizing the practices.

The Michigan Gaming Control Board is working to approve license applications for the provision of retail sports betting services at the state’s three commercial casinos in Detroit. Hopes are that first sportsbooks will be up and running by the start of the NCAA men’s basketball tournament on March 17.

As mentioned earlier, the state legalized online sports betting, as well. However, digital wagering products are likely to be rolled out at some point in 2021 as Michigan regulators are still drafting the rules that would regulate the online sector.

Michigan’s All Three Commercial Casinos Now Have Betting Partners

FanDuel’s reported partnership with MotorCity Casino means that all of Michigan’s three commercial casinos have now secured sports betting partners.

Las Vegas casino giant MGM Resorts International operates the MGM Grand Detroit casino. That gambling venue will provide sports betting services through MGM’s wagering joint venture with European gambling operator GVC Holdings – Roar Digital.

Pennsylvania casino operator Penn National Gaming completed last spring the acquisition of Greektown Casino-Hotel in Detroit. It also recently purchased a 36% interest in digital sports media company Barstool Sports, Inc. and would almost certainly look to bring the Barstool Bets brand to as many states as possible, including Michigan.

The fact that Michigan’s all three commercial casinos have secured sports betting partnerships means that FanDuel’s biggest digital sports betting rival, DraftKings, will need to partner a tribal casino in order to be able to enter Michigan’s sports betting market.

Under the state’s recently enforced sports betting law, the Michigan-based tribes with casinos can, too, tap into the nascent wagering market. However, tribes have their own regulators and only those can decide when tribal casinos can launch sports betting services.

Major players in the US sports betting field have already secured partnerships with several Michigan tribes. Australian bookmaker PointsBet announced in January a long-term wagering agreement with Lac Vieux Desert Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians. William Hill and FOX Bet have too recently penned betting deals with local tribes in order to expand in Michigan.

According to recent reports from local news outlets, some of the state’s tribes could, too, launch sports betting in time for March Madness.

Colorado Gambling Regulator Issues Second Batch of Betting Licenses

Preparations for the May 1 launch of legal sports betting in Colorado are in full swing as the state Limited Gaming Control Commission issued on Thursday the second batch of wagering licenses to operators interested to enter Colorado’s nascent market.

DraftKings was among the operators to be granted a temporary license from the state gambling regulator. The company teamed up with Twin River Worldwide Holdings in January to enter the Colorado wagering space.

The gaming commission at a special meeting held Thursday approved several of the 50-plus sports betting license applications submitted by interested sports betting companies and land-based Colorado casinos.

The regulator held its Thursday meeting specifically to process some of the applications it has received.

Dan Hartman, Director of the Gaming Enforcement Division at the Colorado Department of Revenue, said yesterday that “the commission has additional business to address in our other meeting” and that as investigators carry out and complete background checks on the license applicants, the regulator would bring those up for review in special meetings to ensure that it has “ample time” to get through all applications.

Colorado residents approved last November Proposition DD authorizing the provision of sports betting at retail facilities and through digital channels. The legislation tasked the Colorado Limited Gaming Control Commission with processing license applications.

The regulator said previously that it would initially issue 33 retail and online sports betting licenses.

DraftKings’ Expansion Campaign Continues with Colorado License

As mentioned earlier, DraftKings was among the companies to nab a temporary license for the provision of sports betting services during yesterday’s special meeting of the Colorado gambling regulator.

Colorado will be the sixth state where DraftKings would introduce its DraftKings Sportsbook brand to. The operator teamed up with Twin River as its sports betting partner in the state. The partnership and its license from the gaming commission enable DraftKings to operate a betting app available statewide.

Under its deal with Twin River, DraftKings will also run a retail sportsbook at the casino operator’s Mardi Gras Casino in Black Hawk.

Of their temporary license in Colorado, DraftKings Chief Legal Officer R. Stanton Dodge said that they are excited to be granted the license and look forward “to soon being able to provide sports fans in Colorado with our top-rated mobile and online sportsbook product.

Score Digital Sports Ventures, the operator behind the theScore Bet app, was also granted a license by Colorado regulators during the Thursday meeting.

Ameristar Casino, Lady Luck Casino, and Isle Casino Hotel in Black Hawk were issued master licenses yesterday. These licenses authorize the land-based gambling venues to run brick-and-mortar sportsbooks on side as well as to partner Internet gambling companies to operate online sportsbooks across desktop and via wagering apps.
