Our brands are committed to providing players with the fastest and most secure payment methods and instant bitcoin payments certainly fall under that category.”

New and existing members to the casinos that make a bitcoin deposit will enjoy a range of promotions. First time depositors are eligible to play with a 275% BTC Bonus. Furthermore, all subsequent bitcoin deposits will be credited with a 100% Bitcoin Match, and even more bitcoin-related comps are up for grabs in relation to future bitcoin payments.

Bitcoin deposits are immediately converted to a player’s currency of choice and deposited in their Superior, 24VIP or 888Tiger account. The casinos provide members with the best possible bitcoin exchange rate. The bitcoin deposit will be converted to their selected currency and they can start playing right away.

Pariplay introduces King of Trident

(PRESS RELEASE) — Pariplay Ltd., a gaming technology company serving iGaming operators, land-based casinos and lotteries, has launched King of the Trident, a new online video slot that braves the ocean depths to give players an otherworldly gaming experience. Just in time for the sweltering summer months, Poseidon and his magic trident provide a refreshing combination of crisp graphics and winning features, including Giant Re-Spins, which invite players to explore this enchanting kingdom.

Pariplay’s King of the Trident sets itself apart from the outset with a unique 3x3, 2x6 reel layout that offers players 972 ways to win. Accompanying underwater voyagers is a colourful cast of creatures, including friendly dolphins, majestic seahorses and curious octopuses. Also guiding players on their quest are enchanting mermaids and the ever-regal Poseidon himself.

The further down they journey, the more players will find themselves immersed in a fantastical world of special symbols, free spins and nonstop thrills that will keep them enraptured and eager to spend more time in the realm of Poseidon. Leading this tidal wave of excitement is King of the Trident’s newly developed Giant Re-Spin feature that offers the chance at massive winnings.

The Giant Re-Spin feature is triggered when each of the first three reels land with lit backgrounds, after which they merge into one giant reel. Reels 4 and 5 will also continue to spin to help form winning combinations. Winnings will be awarded accordingly, once all reels have come to a stop.

Scatter free spins are another lucrative game feature by which players can earn up to 40 free spins. The feature is triggered when three or more scatter symbols appear anywhere on the reels. The number of scatter symbols will determine how many free spins are awarded (i.e. 3 symbols/8 spins, 4 symbols/12 spins, 5 symbols/40 spins).

Boasting a 96.02% return-to-player (RTP) rate and available in more than 20 languages, King of the Trident invites its global audience to share in all the winning potential that lies beneath the ocean’s surface. Certified by gambling regulators in the U.K., Isle of Man and Malta, the slot is the latest addition to Pariplay’s growing portfolio of over 100 online casino games. Certification in Sweden, Bulgaria, Denmark and several other regulated markets will follow soon.

Richard Mintz, Commercial and Marketing Director at Pariplay, said, “We have now implemented a schedule that will deliver twice-monthly game releases, including King of The Trident, which follows hot on the heels of Gold’orado. The King of the Trident game also continues our commitment to sending players on unique gameplay adventures, which in this case means diving into Poseidon’s kingdom and taking advantage of our Giant Re-Spin feature.”

(PRESS RELEASE) — This summer during the Dream Cruise Casino Bonus Contest, Intertops Casino Red players will be competing with each other for $240,000 in prizes. That’s more than enough for an amazing summer vacation — even a luxurious cruise. The contest starts on Monday and, every week until 2 September, the casino will reward regular players with bonuses up to $500. Frequent players win top bonuses, but occasional players can also win prizes in weekly random draws.

“Quite often big winners will tell us that they plan to take a luxury vacation with the money they’ve won” said Intertops Casino’s manager. “Of course you can spend your prize money on whatever you like, but I’ll bet a dream cruise is at the top of a lot of bucket lists!”

Intertops players automatically earn points when they play any of the casino’s hundreds of slots and table games from Realtime Gaming. Every Monday, 300 players with the most points win $30,000 in prizes — up to $500 each. The top 20 each week are also entered in a final draw for a $1,000 to be held 2 September. (There are no wagering requirements for this cash prize.)

Next week Intertops unveils its new 777 slot game. Realtime Gaming goes back to basics with this retro-style three-reel slot with traditional symbols. There aren’t a lot of fancy features in this single-payline game, but winning combinations that include a Wild pay triple and players can hold any 1 or 2 reels to hang on to a valuable symbol until the next spin.

The most trusted online casino, Intertops Casino has been entertaining players all over the world for more than twenty years with its huge selection of slots and table games like Blackjack and Roulette.

For 2019 however, the transaction is not expected to have any material effect on financial results.

“We are very excited about the acquisition of Pariplay, which is in line with our M&A strategy focusing on B2B growth and external game sales. The integration of Pariplay grants us control of yet another crucial part of the iGaming value chain – cutting costs, broadening the game portfolio and providing a channel to sell propriety games outside Aspire Global network. Moreover, Pariplay holds an iGaming license for New Jersey, which could act as the spearhead of our future efforts to enter the U.S. market,” says Tsachi Maimon, CEO at Aspire Global.

Pariplay produces best-in-class online casino games, including the recent successes Dragons of the North, Lucky Vegas and Parrot’s Gold. Their proprietary games are complemented by a diverse portfolio of more than 2,000 games from third-party providers including Microgaming, Quickspin and Evolution Gaming. Some of Aspire Global’s proprietary game titles will also be accessible through the aggregator, increasing sales to external operators who are connected to Pariplay, such as 888 and GVC Group.

“We are delighted to join the Aspire Global family as we enter the next stage of our journey and we believe that this agreement brings fantastic opportunities for the whole group. Both Pariplay and Aspire Global have reached solid positions as important B2B-providers in the iGaming market and we look forward to integrating the team and start realising the high potential,” says Adrian Bailey, managing director at Pariplay.

Aspire Global will be acquiring 100% of the shares GMS Entertainment Limited for approximately €13.1 million in cash. The team at Pariplay consists of around 70 gaming experts, the majority of which are based in Sofia, Bulgaria, where the main technology hub is located. Pariplay group holds iGaming licenses for the U.K., Gibraltar, Curacao, Malta and Romania and their games are certified for most regulated iGaming markets in Europe, generating sales of around $3.2 million with positive net income in the first quarter of 2019.

“Pariplay has come a long way since the founding in 2011 and I am very proud of the whole team for their intense efforts and strong commitment over the years. I feel confident about sending the company off for the next phase of the growth-journey and I believe that the match with Aspire Global is great, allowing both operations to reach whole new levels. I look forward to following the progress,” says Gili Lisani, CEO and founder of Pariplay group.

The transaction is to be finalised in the third quarter of 2019 conditional on approval from authorities. Pariplay group will be consolidated under Aspire Global’s financial statements upon closing, with positive effect on the company’s EBITDA as of 2020 thanks to growth, synergies and cost savings. For 2019 however, the transaction is not expected to have any material effect on Aspire Global’s financial results.
