The Hokkaido prefecture to discuss Integrated Resorts bill, on Hard Rock rumours



The Hokkaido prefecture to discuss Integrated Resorts bill, on Hard Rock rumoursReading Time: 1 minute

Hard Rock International announced it will soon open its office in Tomakomai, over the Hokkaido prefecture. In a response, Harumi Takahashi, the Hokkaido Governor, commented to the local press that she is setting an official experts’ committee to discuss the Integrated Resorts bill and the possibility of hosting a casino in the city.

Since there is more than one municipality in Hokkaido which has expressed interest in hosting an IR, the experts’ committee will also look into the question of the optimal location should a bid go forward.

Governor Takahashi stated, “The committee will carry out a concrete examination and listen to a wide range of opinions regarding the regional economy, international tourism, gambling addiction, and the candidate sites which should be given priority.

The committee would be set by later this month and would exclusively evaluate the benefits and opportunities of hosting a Hard Rock casino resort in the Hokkaido prefecture. Furthermore, “the experts’ committee will also look into the question of the optimal location should a bid go forward,” as confirmed by the government.

It’s worth noting that Governor Takahashi and the entire prefectural assembly face elections next April, and most ordinary citizens remain opposed to the legalization of casino gambling.

Latest creation from premium provider contains innovative multi-reel play with central character guiding players along their journey


iSoftBet, the market-leading online and mobile casino software provider, has unveiled its most innovative video slot creation to date, The Dalai Panda.

The highly original game is centred around the infinitely wise Dalai Panda, who uses his mystical powers to magically manipulate the reels if he senses bigger wins are possible, leading to a paw-dropping 729 ways to win.

The Dalai Panda comprises two separate reels that spin simultaneously giving players double the chance to win. The game’s central character is an able ally, guiding players along their spiritual slot journey, regularly filling the Free Spins Bank at the centre of the screen, and producing a series of game-enhancing bonus features including Extra Wilds, Extended Wins, Wild Reels and Win Multipliers.

If three or more Bonus symbols hit the reels, the Free Spins feature triggers, causing the reels to come together to form an enlarged single reel-set with hundreds of pay-ways.

The Dalai Panda sits in the middle-to-high range of the volatility scale and delivers a payout of 95.81% for normal spins, with a hit rate of 27.9%. The game is available on all devices.
