Guns of Boom Announces Gods of Boom Stadium-level Esports SeriesReading Time: 3 minutes

 

Global esports expansion and Season Two details announced
Black Bulls crowned Season One Champions

 

As part of the celebrations at the recent Guns of Boom Season One Finals in Los Angeles, Game Insight has revealed the plans for the game’s second esports season in partnership with ESL, the world’s largest esports company. Beginning in early 2019, Guns of Boom Season Two will introduce Gods of Boom, a new stadium-level series of tournaments that will be part of the world’s biggest esports events. The first Gods of Boom competition will take place at the IEM Expo in Katowice, Poland, with the final match taking place on the main stage. Guns of Boom will be the first mobile game to step on to one of ESL’s mega stages.

“I was competing in esports nearly 20 years ago, and have been a fan of competitive gaming ever since,” said Anatoly Ropotov, CEO of Game Insight. “To bring Guns of Boom to IEM Expo, the biggest esports trade show out there, feels like something of a homecoming. I can’t imagine a better place to debut our Gods of Boom tournament series.”

Game Insight has also revealed that their Pro League will be welcoming players from Latin America and Southeast Asia to compete for the first time. Previously limited to Europe and North America, Guns of Boom’s Pro League now welcomes competitors from four of the world’s largest regions to complete in their live studio events.

“From the moment we launched Guns of Boom, we’ve been fortunate enough to see passionate player communities develop around the world,” said Nikita Sherman, Game Insight’s Head of Strategy. “In regions like Brazil and India, our fans have been clamoring for a way to show off their skills in professional competition. Expanding our reach to these territories was our top priority for Season Two. We’ll also be bringing some of our Pro League studio competitions to these new regions. To our players around the world: we’ve heard you, and we’re excited to see what you can bring to the arena! Let’s mix things up and see which team from which territory can take home the trophy in Season Two.”

Guns of Boom will continue to welcome all players to join in their esports season by competing in Challenger Series online matches. Formerly known as Go4, Season Two’s Challenger Series will give all players a chance to earn rewards and prizes, with the top Challenger Series teams earning a place to compete at Pro League events throughout the season. Together with Gods of Boom and Pro League, Guns of Boom Season Two will be supporting three distinct levels of competition for the first time. Challenger Series competition will kick off Season Two beginning in January.

“Seeing Game Insight embrace ESL’s ‘Zero to Hero’ approach in their second year is fantastic,” said Sean Charles, ESL’s Senior Vice President of Publisher & Developer Relations. “Guns of Boom is taking a dominant stance in mobile competitive play, and it answers directly the desire of the community.”

The Guns of Boom Season One Finals ended in a rematch between the teams that duked it out for the title of European Invitational Champion earlier in the season. Black Bulls triumphed over Back-to-Back during the Season One Finals for the second time to take home $60,000 in prize money. Black Bulls secured their place in the final round after defeating Yakuza in the semi-finals — a new team created by a former Black Bulls teammate, using their original moniker. In addition to the prize money, Black Bulls have also been awarded with the first confirmed competitor slot for the Gods of Boom Invitational at IEM Expo 2019 in Katowice.

The Delaware Lottery’s financial results have shown that igaming performed robustly on the financial front in January 2019, by posting a 57.9 per cent increase in revenues year-on-year.

Revenue rose to $279,541 (£217,970/€247,999), showing a 11.2 per cent month-on-month from December last year.

Players wagered $7.4m across the state’s three licensed igaming sites in January 2019, which represented a 65.5 per cent year-on-year advance, but a 27.7 per cent fall from the $10.3m staked in December 2018. Players won a total of $7.2m during the month.

Move to privatise Holland Casino extendedReading Time: 1 minute

 

The move to privatise state-owned Holland Casino in the Netherlands has been postponed to 2020. The country’s justice minister Sander Dekker cancelled the vote for privatisation because of many objections that the measure suffered in the Senate.

The Financieele Dagblad said that senators are concerned about the fact that privatised casinos may encourage gambling and are worried about the way that the government was planning to proceed with the privatisation process, Dutch News informed.

The original plan included the selling of 10 of the 14 branches under the Holland Casino name, while the other four locations would be sold as a group. The cabinet from the Netherlands is also considering opening up the casino market to new providers and offer two licences.

Justice minister Dekker has until June to come up with a new proposal, present it to the senate and gain backing. “We may adapt the law, withdraw it altogether or go for a vote after all,” Dekker said in a note to senators.
