Kambi launches on-property Sportsbook at Parx Casino in PennsylvaniaReading Time: 2 minutes

 

Keystone State’s largest casino property offers patrons 45 Kambi-powered betting kiosks, seven live teller windows and bring-your-own-device technology

 

Kambi has expanded its American footprint with the launch of its on-property Sportsbook within the largest gaming property in Pennsylvania, the Greenwood Gaming and Entertainment-owned Parx Casino.

Following a thorough two-day testing phase, the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB) has given Kambi and Parx Casino the green light to officially open the sportsbook on 10 January – a decision which means Kambi now powers three of the state’s four live sportsbooks.

The Parx Casino sportsbook opening comes ahead of a busy weekend of sporting action, which climaxes on Sunday evening with local NFL side and reigning Super Bowl champions Philadelphia Eagles travelling to current Super Bowl favourites New Orleans Saints.

As well as being able to watch the game at the sportsbook, patrons can place their bets via seven teller windows or at any of the 45 Kambi-powered betting kiosks located within the sportsbook space, throughout the casino floor and in the Parx Poker Room.

Further, Parx has leveraged Kambi’s innovative Bring Your Own Device technology to launch Betslip Builder – a mobile app which enables players to fill out their bet slip when on the move and create a QR code to be scanned prior to reaching a cashier. Betslip Builder will streamline the bet placement process during busy periods and fast moving games.

With the Parx Casino sportsbook up and running, attention turns to launching additional Kambi-powered sportsbooks at Greenwood Gaming and Entertainment’s South Philadelphia Turf Club and Valley Forge Turf Club, with the former expected to be ready for regulatory testing next week.

In addition, a Parx-branded online sportsbook will be launched as and when the PGCB elects to fire the starting gun on mobile wagering in the state.
Max Meltzer, Kambi Chief Commercial Officer, said: “We’re very excited to have launched our on-property sportsbook at Parx Casino, a brand which shares our commitment to providing unique and exciting wagering experiences to players.

“Today’s unveiling marks Kambi’s fourth bricks and mortar sportsbook launch in less than three months and cements our position as the leading online and on-property sportsbook supplier in the burgeoning US market.”

Matthew Cullen, Senior VP of Interactive Gaming and Sports at Parx Casino, said: “Parx Casino is thrilled to launch legalised sports betting on property this week, and to do so with such a high-quality product from Kambi is particularly exciting.

“Parx is expanding its portfolio of offerings to give patrons the absolute best of all types of legalised gaming, and sports wagering is just the latest stage in enhancing our customer offering.”

Week 12/2019 slot games releasesReading Time: 4 minutes

 

It’s Friday already, so kick back and have a look at this week’s latest slot game releases!

 

We begin this week’s recap with Kalamba Games, who has delivered its latest stunning slot Hong Bao allowing players to open up the delights of the ancient Chinese tradition of the red envelope, which brings good luck and fortune. Hong Bao is exclusively distributed on the Relax Gaming platform via its Silver Bullet partner program. Alex Cohen, chief operating officer and co-founder at Kalamba Games, said: “Hong Baois a fantastic game with stacks of exciting new and familiar Kalamba features that are sure to have players thrilled and engaged.

Betsoft Gaming sets the juice loose with its latest standout slot game, Fruit Bat Crazy. A new take on traditional cascading games, Fruit Bat Crazy allows players to build delicious combinations before smashing them in a single, seriously succulent splat.  In Fruit Bat Crazy, clusters of low-paying symbols always pop first, and symbols collapse on a combo-by-combo basis – so small wins will trigger their own cascades before big wins are calculated, increasing the chances of a deluge of delicious fruit.

The nudge is king as NetEnt takes players deep into the jungle on a treasure hunt in search of ancient gold. There is more than meets the eye in Temple of Nudges™. Set among the exotic flora and fauna of a lush, verdant jungle, the 5×3 video slot with 243 betways combines nudges, symbol stacks and re-spins to deliver maximum excitement. “Nudges are a big favourite with players around the world and with us too, so we created a game that is all about nudges delivering great wins. The feeling we created when combining nudges with the re-spins, giving a chance for even longer nudges, is a pretty powerful one. Temple of Nudges™ will be a great and specifically crafted addition to our diverse and deep portfolio,” said Bryan Upton, NetEnt Director of Games.

Greentube’s Home of Games keeps on getting better and better. The bar is about to be raised even higher with the addition of four of the most innovative casino games on the market enriching its portfolio, Jewels Match 3, Secret Trail Match 3, Sparkling Fruit and Jinxy Match 3. All four ground-breaking Match 3 titles will be available to B2B partners in the coming months. Match 3 games have opened a unique new casino game category of their own, combining the interactivity of a Match 3 game with the thrill of a classic slot.

Yggdrasil‘s latest casino slots gem, Dwarf Mine, tasks players to dig deep to discover hidden treasure and potentially massive wins. Throughout the game players are accompanied by a determined dwarf digger who uses his tunnelling machine to uncover underground valuables. His work is made simpler by drill-shaped Bonus symbols, which expand the reel set by revealing additional rows of symbols. Hitting three Bonus symbols during a single spin grows the reel set from 5×4 to 5×7 symbols and starts a Free Spins round with the enlarged reel set.

Lightning Box has enhanced its partnership with leading UK operator William Hill after agreeing an exclusive omni-channel release of its latest title Lightning Leopard. The game was rolled out first on terminals in the bookmaker’s shops during ICE 2019, at the beginning of February, and will now be available for their online players for a special five-week period. Peter Causley, CEO of Lightning Box, said: “We have established a very good relationship with William Hill and it’s great to be able to launch Lightning Leopard exclusively both in their shops and online.“

Kalamba Games is adding a seasonal touch to its player favourite Mammoth Chase with an Easter egg hunt full of big wins to be discovered. Players can celebrate the holiday season with Mammoth Chase: Easter Edition which features traditional Easter characters and symbols such as bunnies, chickens and eggs. Mammoth Chase is one of Kalamba’s most popular slots, featuring stacked mammoth symbols that combine to award big wins, free spins with a frequent retrigger and multiplier wild symbols.

iSoftBet, the market-leading online and mobile casino software provider, has released its latest blockbuster slot, the Egyptian themed Book of Immortals. The 5-reel, 10-line slot features classic characters from Egyptian mythology, such as feared God of the Dead Anubis, as well as a collection of fearsome gods and goddesses from Egypt’s fabled past. The lucky scarab symbol, covered with hieroglyphs, acts as a wild, with the Free Spins mode activated if three or more scarab symbols land on the reels simultaneously. As with all iSoftBet games, Book of Immortals is supported in both landscape and portrait modes when run on mobile devices and has a wide range of currency and language options.
