Pariplay launches Mystic Manor

(PRESS RELEASE) — Pariplay Ltd., a gaming technology company serving iGaming operators, land-based casinos and lotteries, has launched Mystic Manor, a new online video slot that mesmerises players with treasures, enigmatic artefacts and spell books, which all lead to rewarding treasures. This enchanting five-reel, four-row slot includes new game features designed to enhance the adventure, including Random Wilds, Wild Swaps and Reel Nudges, as well as a Mystery Card Jackpot bonus.

Players venture into the manor and are enticed by the gleaming Magic Box full of gold coins. Each spin in the base game randomly activates new and innovative special features. The Magic Box can activate and cast a spell on reels where Random Wilds appear to form winning combinations. Similarly, the magic chest can trigger the Wild Swap feature, which replaces all symbols of the same kind on the reels and transforms them into wilds.

Through the Reel Nudge feature, the Magic Box can enchant the reels to form a winning combination, even after coming to a complete stop. The functionality may nudge as many as all five reels up or down.

Any time three free spin symbols land on any reels during a single spin, players collect 10 free spins. For even more winning potential, every free spin awards players at random with either a bonus Random Wild, Wild Swap, Reel Nudge or Wild Reels (up to three full reels of wild symbols).

To land the Mystery Card bonus round, players must obtain a special symbol on the third reel, which goes into the Magic Box. Once the box is full, the feature is triggered and players must match three of a kind to earn either a Mini, Minor, Major or Grand Jackpot. The jackpots reward between a 32x and 800x multiplier on the bet amount.

Mystic Manor offers a 95.98% return-to-player rate and is available in over 20 languages, making this mysterious adventure accessible to a broad player base. Pariplay’s latest slot is currently certified in the U.K., Isle of Man and Malta, with availability in Sweden, Romania, Bulgaria, Portugal and Denmark. Pariplay’s game portfolio is comprised of over 100 online casino games, including popular titles King of the Trident, Dragons of the North and Gold’orado.

Richard Mintz, Commercial and Marketing Director at Pariplay, said: “Mystic Manor allows players to experience a game packed with fresh and progressive gameplay features, including the Mystery Card Jackpot bonus, conceived for both mystery and adventure lovers. This array of features, specifically designed to maximise player retention, blend with immersive graphics and a captivating soundtrack to heighten the mansion’s peculiarity and create what is sure to be a big hit amongst video slot enthusiasts.”

GiG launches online casino with SkyCity in New Zealand

(PRESS RELEASE) — Gaming Innovation Group Inc. today launched an online casino with SkyCity Malta, a subsidiary of New Zealand based SkyCity Entertainment Group Limited (SkyCity) its long-term Tier 1 partner. GiG will supply New Zealand customers with a fully managed, first-class online casino experience focused on host responsibility, trust, fun and entertainment. The new experience of online casino is now available for end users in New Zealand.

Today’s announcement follows GiG signing an agreement with SkyCity on 21 May 2019 for the provision of its turnkey and fully managed online casino solution, including a gambling licence. The turnkey solution, powered by its leading technology and flexible architecture, includes the technical platform, fully managed services, gaming content, front end development, CRM, compliance and marketing. GiG will operate the online casino site from Malta on behalf of SkyCity.

SkyCity is one of Australasia’s leading gaming, entertainment and hospitality groups with world-class casino facilities in both New Zealand and Australia. SkyCity is a listed company in both New Zealand and Australia with a current enterprise value of around $3 billion (€1.8 billion). SkyCity’s vision is to be the leader in gaming, entertainment and hospitality in its communities. Responsible gaming is one of the cornerstones of its focus on sustainability and being a good corporate citizen.

The offshore online gambling market in New Zealand is currently estimated at approximately NZ$160 million (€96 million) with the total gambling market in New Zealand estimated at $2.7 billion (€1.6 billion) 2019. The New Zealand market is following the world-wide trend of strong and accelerating growth in online channels, underpinned by changing demands of consumers and a constant evolution of technology. The general expectation is that the country will regulate online casino gambling in the foreseeable future. All gambling which takes place in New Zealand is regulated by the country’s Department of Internal Affairs.

This partnership is expected to make a significant positive contribution to GiG’s revenues from 2020 onwards, however GiG does not expect a material impact on its revenues in 2019.

On news of today’s announcement, Graeme Stephens, Chief Executive Officer of SkyCity, says, “This is an exciting day for SkyCity and one we have been working towards for some time alongside SkyCity Malta and our partner GiG. While ultimately a regulated online gaming market in New Zealand remains the preferred solution, the site launch is another step on our journey of pursuing opportunities to grow and diversify our earnings, addressing a new, fast growing industry which is highly complementary to our land-based activities and offering customers a multi-channel gaming experience.”

Robin Reed, Chief Executive Officer at GiG, says, “GiG is pursuing a strategy of becoming the global partner for strong brands in iGaming. SkyCity Entertainment Group is the largest and most reputable gambling and leisure firm in New Zealand. We are very proud to have been entrusted to provide our full suite of gaming services to them. It has been great to work with Graeme and his accomplished team and due to a great collaboration, we have managed to launch a state-of-the art digital casino experience only two months after signing the agreement. We are looking forward to supporting SkyCity in its aspirations to provide a leading online gambling venue in New Zealand.”

The free spins are on 4 Seasons and Dragon Kings, two Asian-themed slots from Betsoft. The poker bonus can be used in any of their busy poker rooms or to register for poker tournaments.

“Sometimes our poker players don’t realise we have casino games. And a lot of our slots players haven’t checked out our poker room,” said Intertops Poker’s casino manager. “So we thought we’d mix it up a bit with this one!”

From Thursday, 15 August until Monday, 19 August, the casinos are giving players up to 50 free spins and matching their deposits with a poker bonus:

Legends come roaring to life in Dragon Kings, a mix of ancient myth and big-screen, hi-res technology. Launched last summer, Dragon Kings features four mythical dragons that once controlled the seas. From instant prizes to duplicating wilds, each has its own unique power that can turn the tide of the game in an instant. A special sixth reel contains just one symbol – a magical pearl that can either unlock a life-changing jackpot or trigger a tsunami of free spins.

In 4 Seasons, cuddly animals depicting the signs of the Chinese zodiac play in a tranquil garden that changes from spring to summer, autumn and winter. Every 30 spins, a symbol turns Golden and multiplies wins 10x. The game’s Golden Lucky Cat Wilds and generous Yin Yang free spins maximise wins.
