Castle Hill Gaming, one of the nation’s leading gaming software developers, announced it would like to invest $1.3 million and add 106 jobs at its corporate headquarters in Albemarle County, Virginia.

The company will receive matching grants from the Virginia Jobs Investment Program and Albemarle County to support the hiring and training of the new employees. The announcement was made with Virginia Governor Ralph Northam and Secretary of Commerce and Trade Brian Ball. Also in attendance were Rep. David Toscano from the Virginia House of Delegates and Ned Gallaway, Chair of the Albemarle County Board of Supervisors.

Governor Northam signed into law last year VA House Bill 1609, which brought live horse racing back to Virginia at Colonial Downs, supported by Historical Horse Racing. Castle Hill Gaming is one of only four companies in the United States that provides gaming solutions for Historical Horse Racing and, to date, has created 136 games in both mechanical reel and video formats. The jobs added will include designers, computer programmers, mathematicians, and in other high-skilled fields. With proximity to the University of VirginiaCharlottesville and Albermarle County provide the perfect environment to attract and retain these highly-skilled employees. The average employee compensation at the Charlottesville headquarters exceeds $100,000. Castle Hill plans to continue to add jobs as the Commonwealth increases the number of Historical Horse Racing machines.

“We are proud to call Charlottesville home and to partner with the Commonwealth of Virginia on this important high-tech initiative that is revolutionizing the gaming industry with Historical Horse Racing (HHR) games,” said Arthur Watson, CEO of Castle Hill. “We look forward to contributing to the growth and success of Albermarle County and all of Virginia.”

The Virginia Jobs Investment Program provides services and funding to companies creating new jobs or experiencing technological change to reduce the human resource development costs for new companies, expanding companies, and companies retraining their employees. There was also a matching grant from Albemarle County to support local economic development.

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.
