One of the most innovative games released by Microgaming in recent years has been Castle Builder. The game was created by the Austrian Rabcat Gaming in partnership with Microgaming, and brings players fantastic, interactive entertainment as they go through the different levels to reach their own kingdom.

Microgaming recently announced that it is set to release Castle Builder II in the second quarter of this year, and players are counting down the days until they get to play the sequel of such a legendary game.

Castle Builder II was first introduced to the gaming public during the ICE Totally Gaming event in London, and Microgaming’s clever marketing ploy was to build a giant sandcastle outside its stand at the expo to symbolize the castle them of the game.

“We’ve been very excited about the launch of Castle Builder II, a game that is designed with gamification at the forefront and that successfully sends players on an adventure to build the finest of castles,” said the Head of Games Publishing at Microgaming, David Reynolds. “With more characters, kingdoms, and castles than its very popular predecessor, we anticipate this game to be a massive success. The focus has been to extend the game life cycle and keep players engaged as they embark on an epic adventure.”

Look out for the new Castle Builder II video slot at Microgaming powered online casinos in the coming months.

Out of Australia comes the news that the government is seriously mulling laws that could seriously limit the number of gambling ads allowed on television. This move comes in a bid to attract votes for new laws that the federal government is attempting to pass on the gambling and media industries Down Under.

Most crucially are the votes held by Senator Nick Xenophon who has pledged his support for new media laws if the government includes a total ban on betting ads. The government is aiming to drop its current Two Out of Three rule which stops media owners from controlling a TV network, radio station and newspaper in the same market.

Over the years, there have been increasing calls by communities and industries – even some companies in the gaming market – to limit the number of gambling ads on Australian TV.  Paula Dwyer, speaking for Tabcorp said that there were “legitimate community concerns” over gambling ads on TV in Australia.

Xenophon, one of the most vocal anti-gambling lawmakers in Australia was quoted as saying in an interview: “The saturation of gambling advertising during sporting broadcasts is a major community issue that must be a part of negotiations with the government over media reform.”

Xenophon’s fellow lawmaker, Stirling Griff has remarked it is “outrageous” that there still exists a loophole that bookies are able to entice punters during sporting contests that are regularly seen by minors.
