Blockchain platform provider launches new ‘wheel of fortune’ game

 

Blockchain casino platform provider FunFair Technologies is bringing the circus to town with its latest title Wheel of Fun – Fairground.

Wheel of Fun combines the classic ‘wheel of fortune’ concept with the fairness and security of the blockchain, the simplicity of Hi Lo, and the instant win genre that the crypto-audience enjoys.

Players face off against the circus ringmaster in the big top, aiming to stop the spinning wheel for a big FUN payout. They must decide if it’s their lucky day by adjusting the ‘Chances’ slider to light up between four and 20 of the wheel’s 24 numbers, limiting the number of lit segments to take bigger wins or filling the wheel with yellow for more frequent payouts.

Wheel of Fun offers the same high-spec animation, mechanics and soundscape that players have come to expect from a FunFair title, with the studio continuing to raise the bar for blockchain game design.

FunFair’s unique Fate Channel scaling solution allows for the real-time gameplay and functionality expected from any tier one online casino game – far exceeding what’s currently available at other blockchain casinos – with Wheel of Fun also featuring a number of spin speeds and autoplay options to suit players’ preferences.

Stefan Kovach, CCO of FunFair Technologies, said: “Wheel of Fun will offer players yet another first-class blockchain gaming experience, utilising our proprietary scaling technology and design expertise to further expand the FunFair games portfolio.

“This title represents the start of FunFair’s ramped-up content rollout over the coming months. We will continue to raise the benchmark of blockchain game design, with new titles spanning a number of genres ready to service our existing and future white-label partners.”

Players can try out Wheel of Fun – Fairground on the FunFair showcase, while those in an accepted territory can also try their luck at FunFair’s first live partner casino CasinoFair.

£5,000 cash up for grabs for predicting if Altior wins or loses at Ascot

£5,000 cash up for grabs for predicting if Altior wins or loses at AscotReading Time: 2 minutes

 

Matchbook, the sponsors of Saturday’s Clarence House Chase at Ascot, are running a competition on Saturday that will give racegoers a chance to win a £5,000 cash prize by predicting whether Altior wins or loses in the Grade 1 contest.

In a competition designed to engage and educate punters about the benefits of betting with an exchange, punters will either chose to receive a blue lanyard (back bet) or a pink lanyard (lay) which will carry a unique number on.

If Altior wins, the “backers” are in for a chance to win; if Altior loses, the “layers” are in for a chance to win. Matchbook will then draw the lucky number and the correct number and correct colour wins the £5,000 cash prize.

The competition will take place on the ground floor of the main grandstand at Ascot racecourse.

Competition details:

  • Upon arrival, promo staff will hand out blue (Back Bets) and pink (Lay bets) Matchbook branded lanyards to racegoers inside the course gates
  • Lanyards will have a clear pocket which will contain a card. Each card will have a unique number (0001-1000 tbc) and details of how they can win a cash prize of £5000. Card will also have details on Matchbook and our social media handles
  • 18+ only
  • To enter, users will have to come to the Matchbook stand with their unique number, enter it, along with their email address on a dedicated screen before the Clarence House Chase(CHC)
  • The competition will be based on the favourite in the Clarence House Chase winning or losing. If the favourite wins, all the people who have registered with blue(back) lanyards are in the draw for the £5k. The pink (layers) will be out as the favourite won. And the opposite if the favourite doesn’t win
  • Matchbook staff will also have lanyards to give out to visitors at the Matchbook stand
  • Once the last race (16:05) is over, all eligible entrants will come to the Matchbook stand for the big draw.

 

Matchbook is a peer-to-peer betting exchange designed for smart bettors who want better value, deeper liquidity and exceptional customer service. We’re not the alternative, we’re the difference.

Matchbook is licensed and regulated by the Alderney Gambling Control Commission and the UK Gambling Commission.

Betconnect launches to enable punters to follow the bets of professional gamblers

Betconnect launches to enable punters to follow the bets of professional gamblersReading Time: 2 minutes

 

World’s only social betting network that gives everyone access to live bets from professional gamblers who can’t place bets with traditional bookmakers

 

A new betting site launches out of Beta today, letting ordinary punters follow the bets of professionals.

Betconnect is the first notable disruptive technology platform in the industry since Betfair in 2000 and aims to level the playing field between bookmakers, professional gamblers and punters.

For many years, professional gamblers have found their accounts closed or restricted by bookmakers due to their success. In fact, new research published today shows that one in ten (9.8%) of British punters have at some point been restricted. Betconnect connects these people with a network of regular punters in a shared betting experience.

Pros can create and submit bets into the betconnect platform on all major sports and betting markets, using the very best real-time odds. The bets are then intelligently distributed to a network of punters who are prepared to match the bet in exchange for the tip received in the process.

 

Make betting a more informed punt

Many of the betconnect Pros have had their betting accounts restricted or closed by the bookies.

The Pros are held to account through the publication of their profit-and-loss statistics. Punters can therefore be assured of the quality of the ‘tips’ they’re receiving, which are called Bet Requests on the betconnect platform. Every Bet Request is financially backed by the Pro so they can be safe in the knowledge that their interests are aligned. If the Punter chooses to Follow the Bet Request and the Pro wins, they win too.

Underpinning the betconnect user experience is a technology platform and algorithm that has been engineered by a team of Silicon Valley inspired software engineers based in the UK. The platform leverages artificial intelligence and machine learning to provide a highly personalised and seamless experience for both punters and pros.

Mark Weaver, co-founder of betconnect said, “Business is booming for British bookmakers and we believe it’s time to tip things back in favour of punters. Betconnect is a place where regular punters can benefit from the expertise of Pros who’ve been restricted by bookmakers.”

Dan Schreiber, co-founder of betconnect said, “Millions enjoy betting as a hobby and now recreational punters can follow the bets of professional gamblers. The central idea is about sharing expertise in a way that everyone benefits. eToro has proved the concept and appetite of people to be guided by financial trading experts. We are applying the same concept to betting. Recreational punters are able to join betconnect, browse our directory of pros, and connect with the ones whose bets they are interested in following.”

 

About betconnect:

Betconnect is the world’s only social betting platform that gives you access to the bets of professional gamblers. We send you personalised bets – each called a Bet Request – direct from the Pros for you to Match. Many of our Pros have had their accounts restricted or closed so they can’t place bets with traditional bookmakers. Betconnect Ltd is licenced and regulated by the U.K. Gambling Commission (Number: 000-044346-R-323354-001) for customers in Great Britain.

Russia blocks more unauthorised gambling domains in 2018

Russia blocks more unauthorised gambling domains in 2018Reading Time: 1 minute

 

In Russia, online gambling is expecting an annual total climb even higher this year. Russia blocked more than twice as many unauthorised online gambling domains in 2018 than the previous year.

Roskomnadzor targeted over 130k gambling domains in 2018, up from just under 63k in 2017. Most of these offending domains were international variants of Russian-licensed brands.

In this new year, Roskomnadzor has already banished nearly 5k gambling domains to its digital dungeon. The regulator recently signalled that it was prepping new, more efficient tools to ban the unauthorised online gambling domains.

Google had begun complying with the regulator’s demands by connecting to the federal state information system (FGIS), which stores the list of banned resources. Russian-approved firms must connect their systems to the FGIS to ensure newly banned domains are automatically blocked within an acceptable timeframe.
