6-10 Iowa House Passes the Bill to Legalise Sports BettingReading Time: 1 minute

 

The Iowa House has passed a bill which legalises betting on sporting events and fantasy sports and send it to the governor for consideration.

The Senate gave its approval and the bill now goes to Gov. Kim Reynolds who has said she will await the final version of the bill to decide whether she will sign it.

The bill authorises the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission to establish rules for betting on professional, collegiate and international sporting events, including motor racing.

The bill also legalises fantasy sports contests and internet fantasy sports betting but delays betting based on college sporting event statistics until May 2020.

The commission regulates the 19 state-licensed casinos in Iowa. Once the rules are set up by the commission as early as this summer sports bets can be placed at casinos or on a mobile application they establish.

Sports betting would be limited to those 21 and older, and the bill sets a 6.75% tax on net receipts. Taxes and licensing fees could bring in estimated annual revenue of $2.3 million to $4 million annually.

5-14 Japan Approves New Scheme to Stem Problems Related to GamblingReading Time: 1 minute

 

As part of a plan to stem problems related to gambling, Japan has approved a scheme which limits people’s access to casinos and other betting establishments as well as removing cash machines from these locations. The move comes ahead of the opening of several casinos in the country.

Based on the plan, prefectures in the country will also come up with their own steps to counter any gambling-related problems.

“We will create a healthy society by thoroughly implementing measures based on the basic plan in order to prevent people from finding themselves in difficult situations,” Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said.

Under the basic plan, operators of slot machines, pachinko parlours and government-operated gambling venues, including horse racing and keirin racing tracks, have been asked to remove cash machines from their facilities. Pachinko parlour operators are urged not to allow customers to enter their premises if requested by family members. The authorities also urged horse racetrack operators to utilise facial recognition systems to restrict the entry of gambling addicts.

Other measures in place include a proposal on putting up warnings about gambling addiction on newspapers, magazines, and TV commercials. It also urges the country’s 47 prefectures and 20 major cities to set up treatment facilities for gambling addicts by 2020.

Dr-Fortuno Yggdrasil brings magic to the reels and blackjack table with Dr FortunoReading Time: 2 minutes

 

Supplier’s cross-vertical game of the year features industry-first shared jackpot

 

Yggdrasil introduces Dr Fortuno, the industry’s first cross-vertical shared jackpot, giving players more chances to win huge sums on the reels and at the blackjack table.

Both games star the charismatic leader of a travelling freak show who ventures to lands far and wide, inviting players into his mysterious and rewarding world.

The sinister Doctor, together with his troupe of freaks, allows players to enter his realm of dreams and curiosities to experience things beyond the comprehension of imagination.

The marvellous 5×3 slot features nudging wilds and the ‘Wheel of Fortuno’, which gives players a shot at the jackpot and a chance to win additional coins or multiply their winnings.

The Ringmaster also brings his magical flair to the blackjack table. The 5-player RNG multiplayer offers a wonderful new bonus bet and bonus game with incredible rewards including multipliers and a chance to win the daily jackpot which is shared with the slot game of the same name.

Yggdrasil added some extra charm to this shared jackpot with a Customizable Countdown feature. This enables operators to inject more excitement into their games by choosing the starting and ending parameters of their jackpot countdown. This flexibility caters for operators of all sizes, offering engaging and valuable jackpots at the frequency that works for their unique needs.

Jonas Strandman, Senior Product Strategist at Yggdrasil, said: “There is a lot going on in the Dr Fortuno Slot! Nudging wilds, a bonus wheel, free spins AND a jackpot! The bonus wheel happens often enough to keep spiking entertainment levels, while the free spins can dish out huge wins with the right combinations.

“The cross-vertical nature of the game presents our operators with a prime opportunity to introduce their players to new verticals, using a character and game mechanics that they are familiar with.”

“If you ever hear Dr Fortuno, also known as the ‘King of Yellow’, whisper his catchphrase, “By the pricking one of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes!”, roll up, roll up and join his troupe to make fortune smile upon his lucky patrons. You never know, if picked he could bestow you with riches beyond your wildest imagination.”

As with all Yggdrasil slot titles, the Dr Fortuno slot comes complete with the collection of in-game promotional tools, BOOST®.
