ExeFeed releases Simulated Reality Football to help operators overcome sports betting shortfall

Virtual sports is the best vertical to replace sports betting and will be important for operators to overcome the current coronavirus pandemic, according to ExeFeed’s Marco Josipovic.

Sports betting solutions provider ExeFeed announced the launch of its virtual product Simulated Reality Football, to replace the void of live sports, with all major events postponed during the coronavirus outbreak.

The virtual football product will reflect team form and normal match play, with all remaining fixtures scheduled to be played as per their original date and kick-off time. ExeFeed will offer pre-match odds, live BetBuilder and cashout features to complement the virtual football offering.

Speaking exclusively to Gambling Insider, ExeFeed Senior Partner and Product Manager Josipovic believes virtual football will offer what other gaming verticals can’t with the absence of live sport, and expects high demand for what the provider is calling the first product of its kind.

He said: “It is impossible for virtual to replace real matches, but we think this kind of real match simulation can create the content that is between sports betting and virtual sports to create a new sports betting space.

“For operators, content is now most important and this will certainly help to overcome this crisis.

“We quickly realised the entire industry will be in crisis and that online casinos, poker, etc, were not enough for operators who have sport betting at the core of their business.

“It is certain virtual sports will be popular right now, and this opens the door to our company. We received positive feedback from clients we work with and everyone was eagerly anticipating live virtual events, we expect to attract a lot of new clients.”

Crown Platform releases “Emerald” – TheCryptoUpdates

In-house NFT Framework to tokenise assets on the Crown blockchain

KEY POINTS

1) Crown Core v0.14 “Emerald” brings the NFT Framework to mainnet.
2) The NFT Framework enables decentralised, non-fungible token issuance for tokenisation of assets on the Crown blockchain.
3) Artem Brazhnikov, Crown Platform technology lead, is author of the in-house NFT innovation.
4) The decentralised registry functionality activates on 24 March.

Crown Platform, a community-driven cryptocurrency (CRW) and application platform, has released the Crown Core v0.14 “Emerald” NFT Framework, its latest technological in-house innovation. The Crown Platform NFT Framework enables the tokenisation of assets on the Crown blockchain by the issuance of protocols and tokens. With this release, authored by technology lead Artem Brazhnikov, Crown Platform extends its functionality to serve as a decentralised and immutable registry: an asset-chain.

Starting today, individuals, businesses and institutions can become issuers of unique protocols and tokens, specifying their rules and participating in the creation of a decentralised on-chain registry linked to the CRW public-key cryptography and powered by a highly secure Masternode Proof of Stake consensus mechanism. The Crown Platform development has been focused on the usability of the framework. That is why no additional coding language is needed to program the tokens, unlike Ethereum’s ‘Solidity’ approach. As Brazhnikov puts it, “the NFT Framework is a way to tokenise assets without writing any asset-specific code”.

The NFT Framework represents a central part of the always evolving Crown Platform ecosystem. NFT applications range from registry of digital and physical assets to the extension of Crown’s governance and consensus structures through additional possibilities of registry, authentication and documenting. This development milestone is a big step forward for the Crown Platform and it’s enthusiastic community, and there are more to follow. Implementing instant NFT transactions for non-fungible asset exchange and trading are among the top development priorities, together with the soon to be released Bitcoin v0.17 codebase update.

Crown Stakeholders have been working on this pioneering cryptocurrency project for years, allowing Crown Platform to evolve through its Decentralized Governance and Proposal System: an algorithmic voting and funding mechanism that allows the Crown Platform project to self-sustain its path towards further technological and social innovation. By doing so, Crown Platform is creating an alternative, decentralised economy based on its native fair-launch coin, CRW.

The Crown Platform community is committed to enabling an open, decentralised, and community governed infrastructure, supporting functionalities that leverage the potentials of blockchain technology while remaining truthful to decentralisation and permission-less interaction in a cryptographically secure and incentivised peer-to-peer network. New users are joining Crown Platform everyday, adding new ideas to build on its technology.

Spearhead Studios Releases First Table Game

Spearhead Studios this week rolled out its first table game that is part of the casino games developer’s comprehensive 2020 roadmap.

Spearhead Studios presented online casino enthusiasts with its own take on European Roulette. The developer’s new title is designed with a mobile-first approach and is available across all devices.

The game features smooth user interface and sleek visual design with a realistic 3D roulette wheel and authentic ball behaviors as well as rapid loading.

Spearhead Studios’ European Roulette offers two different view settings – standard table view and racetrack view.

The standard table view features all of the traditional inside and outside bets as well as a range of special bets and statistics-based bets such as hot and cold numbers. Players are also offered the opportunity to switch to racetrack view and choose from one of a series of classic call bets as well as save up to ten favorite bets for future use.

The game’s RTP is set at 97.3%. In addition to its other features, it also offers spin result history and other important betting information.

As mentioned earlier, European Roulette is the first table game in Spearhead Studio’s portfolio and the seventh overall to be released by the game development studio.

Delivering Premium Mobile User Experience

Commenting on the newest addition to their games range, Spearhead Studios Game Development Director Kevin Corti said that they “had an emphasis on delivering a premium mobile user experience when creating European Roulette and that they wanted to offer players “the full breadth of bet types and features that they have come to expect from other providers, but to also make the experience much easier and delightful.”

Spearhead Studios Managing Director Mathias Larsson added that they are excited to bring their first table game to the market and that “besides looking amazing, the game contains advanced features offering everything that a player wants.”

Mr. Larsson also revealed that Spearhead Studios intends to release at least eight more slot games by the end of the first half of the year and to introduce its second table game sometime in July. That second game will be Blackjack, representing the game developer’s take on the beloved casino classic.

Spearhead Studios is one of the newest game development studios in the iGaming industry. The studio was established last fall and its formation represented major iGaming company EveryMatrix’s first foray into the game development sector.

Spearhead Studios’ team comprises the team that was behind GiG Games, the development arm of Gaming Innovation Group. GiG offloaded the studio to EveryMatrix last fall in a bid to reduce costs and focus on other areas of its business.

Spearhead Studios’ portfolio includes its first and highly popular Book of Souls slot as well as Wilds of Wall Street, Midnight Madness, and Wild Reels, among others.

In short, we wanted to offer players the full breadth of bet types and features that they have come to expect from other providers, but to also make the experience much easier and delightful.”

In the same way as with slot games, we aim to deliver the best selection of table games for our players. Besides looking amazing, the game contains advanced features offering everything that a player wants. Before the end of H1, we will deliver a minimum of 8 more slot games, and in July we will release our next table game which will be Blackjack.”

As players of this classic game would expect, the game’s standard table view offers all of the traditional inside and outside bets. Players can place a full range of special bets, as well as statistics-based bets such as hot and cold numbers. They can switch to the racetrack view to place one of a series of classic call bets and save up to ten favourite bets for reusing.

The spin result history and other betting information, coupled with the smooth UI and modern visual design, all combine to make this a game a true delight to players. From the super-slick chip and bet selection process, to the lavishly rendered 3D wheel and luxurious soundscape, roulette fans will love playing this game. European Roulette has a Return to Player (RTP) of 97.3%.

Pragmatic Play Grows Live Casino Portfolio with Baccarat, Roulette Releases

Pragmatic Play continues to deliver on its promise to significantly boost its Live Casino offering this year with the recent introduction of three new titles.

The provider launched not long ago two variants of probably the most popular table game at land-based casinos – baccarat – as well as one new roulette variant.

Pragmatic Play’s Baccarat includes all the features that a traditional baccarat game has, but also introduces the provider’s twist on the game and offers players access to statistical trends. The new Baccarat title shows players the total pot and quantity of players for Player, Banker, and Tie bet fields and offers a number of side bets.

All of Pragmatic Play’s Baccarat tables start in the Regular Mode, but players can switch to the No-Commission Mode at any time during the course of the game by pressing the Super 6 button. The Super 6 bet is won when the Banker prevails over the Player with a total of six points, paid at 15:1 with any outcome that stands for a loss.

Speed Baccarat and Roulette Macao

Speed Baccarat was the other baccarat titles Pragmatic Play recently added to its Live Casino offering. While the game adopts the traditional style of play, it also adds extra excitement.

Every game round in Speed Baccarat lasts 27 seconds, with betting time being limited to 12 seconds. Once the betting time is over, the cards are dealt face up.

Roulette Macao is the newest addition to Pragmatic Play’s live roulette offering. The game evokes the gameplay and feel of playing at luxury land-based casinos around the world. It is broadcast from Pragmatic Play’s Live Casino studio with 4K camera technology.

Last month, the provider rolled out three language-dedicated roulette tables to enhance its Live Casino offering. The new tables are now available across the provider’s network of partner operators and fellow industry providers in Italian, Russian, and German.

Looking at Ways to Innovate

Commenting on the newest additions to their Live Casino portfolio, Lana Bleichyk, Live Casino Operations Manager at Pragmatic Play, said that they are constantly looking for ways to innovate and expand their Live Casino offering and that they have achieved exactly that with the launch of the two new baccarat titles and Roulette Macao.

Of their new Baccarat game, Ms. Bleichyk said that with baccarat being an extremely popular casino game, despite its relatively simply rules, they are “looking forward to seeing big engagement with this one.”

Ms. Bleichyk added that with the creation of their fast-paced Speed Baccarat, they “endeavor to appeal to players who enjoy the immersive nature of a traditional casino, coupled with the accessibility of a modern day, mobile experience.”
