The Ukrainian Security Service (SBU) has nabbed a local prosecutor and a national police chief in in the Smila Raion region for allegedly helping an illegal gambling business by accepting bribes.

The two accused had allegedly received more than UAH50,000 (€1,500) as bribe from an illegal gambling business for not reporting and punishing the business.

SBU has been conducting an investigation over the corruption allegations in association with the national police. The agencies will continue the investigation to find out whether more people were involved in the illegal operations.

Into the wild with Endorphina’s Buffalo 50

Buffalo-50 Into the wild with Endorphina’s Buffalo 50
Buffalo-50-1 Into the wild with Endorphina’s Buffalo 50Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Imagine an enormous stretch of fields blending in with the deep valleys, horizons, waterfalls, and ancient giant sequoias. A place where beauty meets risks and where danger meets serenity.

Welcome to Endorphina’s slot taking place in the wild – Buffalo 50.

The American bison, often called buffalo, used to roam the plains – the golden land in the middle of North America.
But these buffalos aren’t the only ones that players can meet there. If they travel a bit deeper, they will meet the noble wolves, the proud eagles, and the very fast cougars.
The typical clear and fiery sky of the Yosemite Valley goes beyond anyone’s imagination. It’s not just a valley, but a shrine to human foresight. It came with no surprise that such a beautiful piece of American wildlife would inspire Endorphina’s developing and designing team for a new adventurous slot game.

Buffalo 50 is a 5-reel, 4-row, 50 paylines slot with stacked wilds and a free spins feature. The North American Buffalo symbolizes courage and stability – a perfect combination players are looking for in the games. That’s why the buffalo is a wild symbol that substitutes for all symbols, except for the scatter. The golden coin is also a scatter symbol. 3 scatters will win players 5 free spins with stacked wilds. Free spins can be retriggered, so players have to make sure to pay attention!
As always, the players have the chance to double their win up to 10 times, because Buffalo 50 also includes a classic Risk Game. The classic feature, that they come across in every game from Endorphina never fails to disappoint.

The Head of Account Management Gretta Kochkonyan has shared some insights on the new release:
“The plains and the animals which inhabit it has been an inspiration for all sorts of artists for a very long time. Our talented team could not miss the chance to bring together the magnificent scenery and heartening atmosphere of this place. Buffalo 50 has already been pre-released for a limited number of operators. The pre-release is a great advantage for the casinos since Endorphina’s fans can come and experience the new game a week before the actual release. The game has already proven itself to be a fabulous addition for the casinos and players.”

Buffalo 50 is the last game release in September by Endorphina. But autumn has only just begun, so there is no doubt that such a creative and prolific provider would delight us with even more legendary slots in the upcoming months.

Major European Gambling Brands Cut Advertising on IPR-infringing Sites

6-16-2 Major European Gambling Brands Cut Advertising on IPR-infringing Sites
6-16-3 Major European Gambling Brands Cut Advertising on IPR-infringing SitesReading Time: 2 minutes

 

A new report by the European Commission has found that an industry-led memorandum of understanding (MoU) on online advertising and intellectual property rights has led to a significant reduction in the unintentional placement of advertising from Europe’s major gambling brands on websites which infringe upon intellectual property rights.

The MoU, published in 2018, was established to limit advertising on websites, such as illegal sports streaming sites, and mobile applications that infringe copyright or disseminate counterfeit goods.

As part of its review of the effectiveness of the MoU, the Commission has presented a new report today which found that the MoU has created more awareness among brands that their advertising may end up on IPR-infringing websites. According to the report, the share of total advertising for European businesses on IPR-infringing websites was reduced by 12% since the introduction of the MoU, while gambling advertising from Europe’s major brands (including all EGBA members) decreased by 20%, from 62% to 50% during the reporting period.

The European Gaming and Betting Association (EGBA) welcomes the report’s conclusions and is pleased with the significant progress made by EGBA members and other major brands in reducing the unintentional placement of their advertising on IPR-infringing advertising channels.

“EGBA welcomes the progress made by EGBA members and other major gambling brands in significantly reducing the unintentional placement of their advertising on IPR-infringing websites and is pleased that major online gambling companies are playing a central role in EU efforts to crack down on IPR infringement. Most reputable companies do not intend to advertise on IPR-infringing websites, but it happens and is difficult to control, and EGBA acknowledges that remedial action is needed to prevent it. That is why we have been actively engaging with the European Commission and other stakeholders to take action and are pleased those efforts are beginning to bear fruit,” Maarten Haijer, Secretary-General of EGBA, said.

“EGBA is committed to promoting responsibility and driving standards in Europe’s online gambling sector and we encourage other companies to join us – and be part of the solution, not the problem – by adhering to responsibility initiatives such as the MoU. This initiative proves that greater cooperation at EU-level can benefit the sector and how it is able to respond to the challenges it faces, including on advertising,” Maarten Haijer added.

Adverty AB (publ) has appointed Singapore-based The Scale Factory, led by former Omnicom Group and Tapad executives, to drive commercialization in Asia Pacific by bringing Adverty’s seamless in-game advertising solution to brands and media agencies in the region.

Adverty, the leading in-game platform for advertisers, agencies and game developers, today announces a new partnership with Singapore-based The Scale Factory to drive the commercialization and go-to-market strategies for Adverty’s seamless in-game advertising solution in the APAC-region.

The Scale Factory, founded and led by Lars Bjoerge, former APAC EVP for Omnicom Group TBWA and Pierre Martenson, former Head of International Expansion for Tapad, will spearhead Adverty’s footprint in Asia by establishing a growth vision, implementing go-to-market strategies and taking on the commercial leadership by directly bringing Adverty’s seamless in-game advertising solution to brands, media agencies and other stakeholders in the region.

“We absolutely love what Adverty is doing to disrupt in-game advertising. With current in-game ad solutions, we are seeing more and more users reject brands that interrupt, and in some cases even destroy the gaming experience. Adverty has solved this elegantly by enabling brands to be present alongside gamers in this extremely valuable and rapidly growing consumer segment. We are thrilled to start building Adverty’s footprint across APAC”, says Lars Bjoerge, founder and Managing Partner at The Scale Factory.

Adverty’s industry-leading in-game advertising platform was awarded the IAB UK and IAB Sweden Gold Standard certificates in 2018 and 2020 respectively and enables access to all major programmatic buy-side platforms through partnerships with PubMatic, Smaato and BidSwitch. The company recently invented and announced a new in-game brand advertising format called In-Menu2122-143 Adverty appoints The Scale Factory to drive commercialization in Asia Pacific, which enables contextually relevant IAB display banner ads on menu screens in between gameplay, alongside its current In-Play2122-144 Adverty appoints The Scale Factory to drive commercialization in Asia Pacific format, which allows brands to take over billboards and other virtual outdoor sites within games.

“The future of gaming is mobile, and in APAC the future is now. With an estimated number of gamers exceeding 1.5 billion people, soon crossing $100 billion in revenues, we see APAC as an integral part of our expansion in the coming years. We have had the pleasure of following the team behind The Scale Factory for quite some time and have been deeply impressed by their very hands-on approach. We are confident that we will achieve amazing things together”, explains Niklas Bakos, founder and CEO of Adverty.

The partnership is commencing on October 1st and will be rolled out in the region during Q4.
