US Blocks League of Legends in Syria and Iran

US Blocks League of Legends in Syria and IranReading Time: 1 minute

 

The U.S. government has blocked League of Legends, one of the most played video games of all time, in Iran and Syria.

Trade sanctions, tariffs and threats of military conflict are the frequent sights when countries are in active dispute, but blocking the access to video games is a novel course of action. Players from Iran and Syrian have expressed despair about this situation.

Right now the ban applies only to Syria and Iran, but if the U.S. enters into future conflict with another country, those citizens potentially may have their access to League of Legends revoked. The sanctions placed on Iran detail that any business in that country cannot trade with the U.S. and that any business caught trading with Iran is in trouble as well. League, like many other free games, has to sustain itself with microtransactions, which undoubtedly counts as a form of trade and, therefore, has to abide by the sanctions.

Pragmatic Play Launches Sweet BonanzaReading Time: 1 minute

 

Pragmatic Play, one of the leading software providers for video slots, live casino and bingo, has lifted the lid on its latest video slot, Sweet Bonanza.

The sugary 6×5 tumbling video slot is bursting with toffees, watermelons and lollypops which guarantee a fun-filled gaming experience.

Hitting four or more scatter symbols triggers the free spins feature, which is packed with high multipliers and offers potential wins of up to 21,175x the original bet.

The unique tumbling feature is triggered when a winning combination of symbols appears, causing them to vanish and be replaced by new symbols which drop onto the reels from above.

Melissa Summerfield, Chief Commercial Officer at Pragmatic Play, said: “We are excited to unveil Sweet Bonanza, a high-volatility game which gives players an opportunity to load up on sugar and huge prizes.

“We’re certain that our innovative tumbling feature and tantalising gameplay will be a firm favourite with operators and players.”

Sweet Bonanza is the latest in a string of new Pragmatic Play releases, including 5 Lions Gold and The Dog House.

It will join best-performing titles Wolf Gold, Da Vinci’s Treasure and Mustang Gold in the supplier’s portfolio of video slots, alongside bingo, scratchcards and live casino games which are available to operator partners via a single API.
