Tabcorp has announced that it will donate more than $1.5 million to bushfire recovery on behalf of its brands TAB, Sky Racing, the Lott, MAX and Keno.

All of Tabcorp’s proceeds from the regular Saturday Lotto draw on 25 January will be donated to the bushfire relief effort, which is expected to be in excess of $1.5 million. The draw will be known as the Bushfire Benefit Draw.

“We offer our deepest sympathies to the many Australians that have lost loved ones, homes or their livelihood during this national crisis,” said Tabcorp CEO David Attenborough.

“The Australian spirit has been truly inspirational throughout this ordeal and the Tabcorp Group is pleased to play its part in supporting the recovery effort.”

Tabcorp has also provided financial relief to hotels and clubs that have been directly impacted by bushfires and relief operations.

This comes in addition to the $100,000 donation made by Tabcorp’s Keno brand to assist Team Rubicon in late 2019 in their efforts to clean and rebuild bushfire affected communities, particularly those who have lost property in Northern New South Wales.

Tabcorp is also dollar matching donations made to bushfire relief charities by its 5,000 employees, as well as amending its existing volunteering policy to provide open-ended paid leave for volunteer firefighters and reservists throughout this time.

“Many of our own people have been deeply impacted by these bushfires. We have partners in pubs, clubs, newsagents and retail outlets across New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland and South Australia that have been devastated and we’re committed to providing as much support as we can during this difficult time,” Mr Attenborough said.

Tickets in the Saturday Lotto Bushfire Benefit Draw, Saturday Lotto draw 4019 on Saturday 25 January 2020, are available at the Lott outlets across Australia (excluding Western Australia), online at thelott.com or via the Lott app.

Visa and FACEIT have partnered with Gazprombank to launch the first esports card product for gamers actively engaged in Dota2 and CS:GO titles in Russia.

Gazprombank’s new FACEIT debit card by Visa will allow making everyday purchases, as well as give gamers exclusive access to tournaments on the FACEIT platform. Card holders will be able to take part in the competition for the prize pool in both disciplines of the FACEIT team game tournaments — Dota 2 and CS:GO.

Starting in June, $450,000 in prize money will be distributed among players within the first three months across several different tournament formats for CS:GO and Dota 2, both in FACEIT points and ruble cash prizes.

“In designing this product, we always stuck to the core question: ‘What does a player really want?’ The answer to this is surprisingly simple: the player wants to be rewarded for his success in the game. So we accepted the challenge of putting together a diverse, rich, exciting reward infrastructure that motivates players’ to become better while putting real tangible prizes into their hands when they win tournaments. With CS:GO and Dota hitting a peak of 1.3M and 800K concurrent players, we are saying to the world: come compete with us and get $450,000 worth of prizes!” Evgeniy Zelenyi, Director of Strategic Partnerships and Fintech at Visa Russia, said.

“We are very excited to launch the program with VISA and Gazprombank as our first partner in this world first collaboration. This program is a great example of how brands can connect with our community and significantly contribute to the development of competitive ecosystems which is something that is hugely important for FACEIT. The partnership aims to drive new competitive opportunities to esports players in Russia while also creating valuable content for CSGO and Dota2 players. It’s fantastic to partner with international industry leaders to create new initiatives,” Niccolo Maisto, Co-Founder & CEO of FACEIT, said.

“Following the trends in the banking business, Gazprombank once again relies on personalization. This time we chose a rapidly growing segment — the mass e-sports market in Russia. In partnership with Visa and FACEIT, we launched a unique card product for gamers, thanks to which we plan to significantly increase our customer base. I’m sure that the new card will be in demand, because now the e-sports audience in Russia has about 10–12 million people and is predicted to grow by 20% annually,” Alexey Popovich, First Vice President and member of the Management Board of Gazprombank, said.

Slot supplier Play’n GO have released another quality title into the market, a collaboration with famed American rock band Twisted Sister.

The band reached worldwide acclaim during the 80s with their album Stay Hungry, and the game is a cascading gridslot based around two of the biggest hits from that album I Wanna Rock, and We’re Not Gonna Take It.

As has become the trademark for Play’n GO collaborative titles, the narrative of the game is strongly linked to Twisted Sister and their material, including a free round called “We’re Not Gonna Take It”, inspired by the lyrics and music video of the track. This is coupled with a host of special features for each of the band members represented during the game.The game continues on the company’s progression with their music slot catalogue and, following on from the last release, Annihilator, makes use of quality in-game animation to add an extra dimension to the gameplay, particularly during the free round.

Twisted Sister had an incredibly unique look and style, which has been translated into the game’s theme and design, something that CPO Martin Zettergren feels lent itself well to being transformed into a slot title:“Their distinctive style of music has allowed us to create a game with innovative features, meaning it will appeal to fans of quality slot entertainment, as well as fans of the band, there’s something for everyone.”

Twisted Sister is available to play online now.
