1-12 Maine Legislature Passes Sports Betting BillReading Time: 1 minute

 

Maine legislature has passed the sports betting bill. The Legislative Document 553 was given final approval by each chamber of the legislature and will now pass to Governor Janet Mills to be signed into law.

LD553 opens up the market to all of the state’s bricks and mortar gaming venues, such as commercial racetracks, off-track betting facilities, and commercial and tribal casinos. It will also allow mobile operators to apply for licences without the need for a land-based partner in the state.

Successful applicants will have to pay $20,000 as licence fee, 10% tax on land-based wagering revenue and 16% rate for mobile wagering. The bulk of revenue raised through these taxes will be allocated to the Maine General Fund.

Operators will be permitted to offer odds on all professional, collegiate and amateur sports events. Betting on events involving Maine-based colleges and universities will be prohibited. Only citizens aged 21 and above will be allowed to bet.

Cash-O-Matic NetEnt invites players to give its marvellous money machine a spin with Cash-O-MaticReading Time: 1 minute

 

Cash-O-Matic is an adventure packed with Free Spins and Multipliers.

 

NetEnt’s Cash-O-Matic is a 1024-bet way, 5-reel, 4-row video slot designed with the look of an old-style cash machine and loaded with game mechanics.

The new, retro-looking title has flipped NetEnt’s proprietary AvalancheTM feature on its head. Now operating in reverse, AvalancheTM sees all winning symbols remain on the reels, while the rest disappear.

Cash-O-Matic is full of Free Spins and Multipliers. The number of Free Spins awarded equals the amount of Scatter symbols collected, with a minimum of 10 Free Spins there to be won. With Scatter lengths of up to 18, the number of Free Spins can get really high.”.

In the main game, the Level Multiplier is awarded if at least one row is filled with winning symbols. The more rows, the higher the Multiplier value. In Free Spins, the Multiplier depends on the number of Scatter symbols that activated Free Spins and can go as high as x50.

“We’re pleased to present Cash-O-Matic, a true homage to the first slot machine, the Liberty Bell. High volatility reverse AvalancheTM action, Free Games, Scatter Stacks and Multipliers in a very simple and elegant art package. A game for the VIP players out there.” said Bryan Upton, NetEnt Director of Games.
