Lindar Media launches affiliate program with Income Access

(PRESS RELEASE) — Lindar Media, the U.K.-based operator of white-label online bingo and casino brands, has announced the launch of the MrQ affiliate program with Income Access, Paysafe Group’s marketing technology and services provider. The program will support the MrQ bingo brand, which launched in August and runs on proprietary software developed by the team at Lindar.

Affiliates of the MrQ program will be equipped with a range of marketing tools, including ads in multiple formats and dimensions, with bespoke landing pages available upon request.

MrQ marks the second affiliate program that Lindar has launched with Income Access — the first integration took place in April.

The program will supply key resources, including affiliate management support, an in-house CRM team to maximise player value and a content specialist to craft site reviews in a suitable tone and style. MrQ affiliates will also earn 70% revenue share commission for their first three months of membership.

Complementing MrQ’s bingo product is a catalog of 28 slot games supplied by Thunderkick and 50 additional titles from Eyecon set to be integrated by the end of the year. Players have access to a variety of bonus offers, the details of which can be found on the MrQ Promotions page.

James Booth, Acquisition Operations Manager at Lindar Media, said, “Income Access has an excellent reputation as the go-to affiliate tracking platform in the iGaming space. We’ve used them in our own capacity as an affiliate and as a white-label operator, so it made sense to use them as a partner for our custom-built platform.”

Booth added, “The affiliate channel naturally makes up a huge portion of our marketing activity, but Income Access is used across all of our channels and to evaluate all of our marketing partners, including our agency-led marketing campaigns.”

Intertops Poker Thanksgiving slot tournament

(PRESS RELEASE) — Intertops Poker’s $2,000 Thanksgiving Slots Tournament features the mouth-watering new Sugar Pop 2: Double Dipped slot and three more of the casino’s most popular slots. The week-long tournament, held over the American Thanksgiving weekend, will pay $2,000 in prizes to the top 16 players.

The Thanksgiving Slots Tournament, 21-28 November, features: Tiger’s Claw, Charms & Clovers, Fruit Zen and the runaway player favorite right now, the new Sugar Pop 2: Double Dipped.

Players will automatically earn points when they play the featured tournament games. The 16 players with the most points at the end of the week (28 November) will split $2,000 in prize money. The first-place player wins $400. (Prizes must be rolled over at least once in order to be withdrawn.)

“Basically, between football and turkey, just play some of our most popular games and win prizes on top of your winnings,” laughed Intertops Poker’s casino manager. “It’s a total win – win!”

Tiger’s Claw is a mystical 3-4-5-4-3 game with 720 paylines. Shaman scatters can pay up to 50X the bet.

Charms & Clovers is a 40 payline progressive video slot with four-leaf clovers, pots of gold, horseshoes – and an innovative sixth reel that controls four distinct bonus features.

The images and music in Fruit Zen may be serene, but with an expanding Wild that increases winning combinations it’s a game filled with spine-tingling excitement.

Sugar Pop 2: Double Dipped is an incredible sequel with cluster wins and exploding candies like the original. Large clusters leave a Wild in their place. When there are more than five clusters, a Candy Bomb clears a large portion of the board resulting in massive wins. A Morphing Golden Wild candy changes shape to match any candy near it. The Jelly Bean Cannon fires jelly beans into the air, taking out any candies they land on, and the Sweet Hammer slams the board taking out all candies in its way.

(PRESS RELEASE) — A lucky player is celebrating after winning SEK 80 million (€7.8 million) on Yggdrasil’s flagship progressive jackpot slot, Joker Millions.

“Joker Millions is our first progressive slot and it is beloved by both operators and players. With more operators continuing to join the Yggdrasil network, the jackpot will be building up again quickly.”

James Ford, Head of Casino at LeoVegas, said, “What a record win! Progressives like this always create excitement. We’ve been keeping a close eye on this one in anticipation that it would drop. We’re really happy it was triggered at LeoVegas and pass a huge congratulations on to our lucky player.”


Evoplay to debut new slot at SiGMA

(PRESS RELEASE) — Evoplay Entertainment, the innovative game development studio, is to showcase its new slot title at SiGMA 2018 later this month.

The game, Syndicate, is a thrilling journey into east coast America’s unsavory underworld, where the proceeds of crime give players the chance of landing 1,024 possible winning combinations.

It comes hot on the heels of the developer’s highly-acclaimed Necromancer title, which has been nominated for a host of awards, including Best Gaming Innovation at December’s SBC Awards in London.

Both games will be on display on Evoplay Entertainment’s stand B211 as the company makes its SiGMA debut, with Chief Business Officer Kate Romanenko and her team on hand to demonstrate their unique features.

Kate said, “Our mission with every game is to revolutionize the iGaming user experience through innovative game-play and we’ve designed Syndicate to offer features never seen before in the industry.”

“SiGMA is one of the hottest events on the industry’s calendar, and we’re absolutely delighted to be unveiling it there alongside our other games, which will give operators fresh new content and a point of differentiation from their competitors.”

Each of the winning combinations in Syndicate, which boasts a hip-hop soundtrack, triggers a re-spin that retains the same symbols on the reels which then become sticky to trigger yet more re-spins.

The title joins a 50-strong portfolio of slots, table, and instant games produced at the Malta-based company’s development studios in the Ukraine. Licensed in Curacao, with additional licenses In Malta and the U.K. on their way, it has established a network of partnerships throughout Asia, the CIS and Europe.
