9-6 Fantasma Games Launches Riviera StarReading Time: < 1 minute


Fantasma Games has released its latest online slot game Riviera Star. The glamorous slot delivers plenty of big-win potential with thrilling features including Respins, Free Spins, Sticky Wilds and Multipliers.

Any line win activates the Respin feature and sees all winning symbols locked in their position while the rest of the reels spin. Any new line win during the Respin feature is locked and the rest of the reels spin again. When no new line wins occur, the Respin feature ends.

The unique Superstar feature can be randomly activated at the start of any base game spin and sees the Superstar symbol, which acts as a Sticky Wild, placed randomly at a position on reels two to four. It also boasts an increasing all-win multiplier.

Riviera Star also features a Free Spin bonus game triggered when three Scatter Symbols land during the base game. The player receives ten Free Spins and the Superstar feature and all-wins multiplier are also activated.

“The team has done an excellent job of creating a perfectly balanced slot with a unique Superstar feature that combined with an unlimited multiplier, delivers plenty of big win potential that even the Riviera’s rich and famous will be envious of,” Fredrik Johansson, CEO of Fantasma Games said.

France’s Française des Jeux Secures New Jackpot Insurance



7-7 France’s Française des Jeux Secures New Jackpot InsuranceReading Time: < 1 minute


Française des Jeux (FDJ), the operator of France’s national lottery games, has announced the implementation of a comprehensive insurance policy to cover its counterparty risk from January 1, 2020.

One of the changes involved in the tax and regulatory reform carried out as part of the privatisation of FDJ was the discontinuation of the “counterparty fund” system.

This reform is part of a broader process of clarifying the relations between the state and the company, which is now responsible for covering counterparty risk through an insurance policy, at its own expense.

FDJ has taken out a comprehensive insurance policy with a number of top-tier French and international insurers and reinsurers to cover its counterparty risk, which will take effect from January 1, 2020.

This contract, drawn up with insurance broker Marsh, provides a guarantee for the gains falling within its scope on an aggregate basis. It provides annual coverage of up to €150 million. All costs related to this insurance policy are in line with expectations and are covered by the planned budget.
