South Africa’s favorite online casino, Springbok Casino, is asking players to follow its lead and adopt New Year resolutions that help others less fortunate. The site has made a short but very inspiring video, asking players to look around them and see how they can be kinder to friends, family, neighbors and the environment.

During the video, players can find out how they can claim 25 free spins on one of the most popular games on the site, RTG’s Gemtopia slot. This offer is available throughout the month of January, and is definitely worth claiming. Not only do you get great ideas on real New Year’s resolutions, but you can also win spin the reels of a video slot game for free and put yourself in line to win!

“Join a gym, drink less, eat better – instead of those tired old New Year’s resolutions everyone makes and breaks, how about some resolutions that will make the people in your life happy?” asks the manager of Springbok Casino, Daniel van Wyke. “Or really go for it and include other people, animas and environment.”

Some of the suggestions made in the Springbok Casino resolution video:

  • Buy flowers for someone ‘out of the blue’
  • Adopt a pet from a shelter
  • Call your parents or grandparents
  • Be nice to your neighbors
  • Spend more time with your loved ones

Recently we reported about the spate of new games that went live at Microgaming-powered online casinos this month.

Today, we’ll focus on Shamrock Holmes Megaways slot, the first game that was released via Microgaming’s studio partnership with All41 Studios. The game went live on January 5th, and players are already reporting on a fun and rewarding gaming experience on this Irish-themed slot.

About Shamrock Holmes Megaways slot:

  • High volatile slot
  • Six reels
  • Themed on the world’s most famous leprechaun detective.
  • The first of two Microgaming-exclusive releases from All41 Studios this month.
  • Employs the highly acclaimed trademarked Megaways license from Big Time Gaming.
  • When certain combinations of symbols and scatters land on the reels, a Magic Forest Respin is awarded with a guaranteed number of trigger-based Megaways.
  • Land three scatters with Shamrock Holmes and the Pixie symbols in the top row, and the respin feature will unleash a minimum of 117,648 ways to win.
  • Includes Microgaming’s Rolling Reels feature, which replaces winning symbols on the reels with new random symbols.
  • Rolling Reels is active during the base game, respins and free spins, and the feature triggers until there are no new winning combinations to be had.
  • Land four scatter symbols to trigger 10 free spins with an initial 2 x win multiplier. The multiplier increases by 1 with each Rolling Reels win. The max win multiplier is unlimited.

Realistic Games announced that it has signed an agreement to supply its portfolio to platforms operated by Lottoland in Sweden, Germany and the UK. In a press release issued this week, the British online casino games developer said that it would be launching its diverse range of slots, table games and instant win games and, by doing so, “furthering its presence in some of Europe’s largest markets.”

The commercial director at Realistic Games, Robert Lee said, given Lottoland’s established and growing customer base in the UK, Swedish and German markets, this partnership is “a significant step forward that will further cement our footprint.”

“From high volatility slots that appeal to traditional enthusiasts to quick-fire instant win games for more casual players, our portfolio has something for everyone and will therefore make a strong addition to Lottoland’s offering,” he added.

Also adding his comments was the CEO of Lottoland, Nigel Birrel, who said that Realistic fits the bill perfectly of an ideal supplier partner that not only complements the group’s core lottery products, but also brings something new to its platform. He said that the variety of Realistic’s content is exactly what Lottoland needs to meet the demands of the group’s diverse, growing player base and attracts new audiences.

“We look forward to taking their portfolio live to our customers,” he said.

Billionaire casino magnate, Sheldon Adelson, has died at the age of 87. The chairman and CEO of Las Vegas Sands was one of the world’s richest men with a reported value of around $35 billion, according to Forbes. Adelson impacted the US and global casino industry significantly during his lifetime. His dynasty ranged from the Venetian casino resort in Las Vegas to lucrative casinos in Macau.

Adelson bought the Sands Hotel and Casino in Sin City in 1988 for $110 million, before razing it to the ground in 1991 and spending another $1.5 billion to build the Venetian. In 2006, Las Vegas Sands was awarded a license to construct a casino resort in Marina Bay, Singapore. The resort was built at a cost of $5.5 billion.

But while Adelson’s rivals such as MGM and Caesars were embracing the growing online gambling industry, he fought this industry his entire life. Adelson poured literally millions into supporting candidates who tried their utmost to overturn state legislation to legalize online gambling. In 2015, Adelson backed the controversial Restore America’s Wire Act, although he wasn’t successful in most of his efforts.

Last year there were rumors that the Las Vegas Sands was exploring a sale of its Las Vegas resorts for as much as $6 billion. While the company confirmed that there were “very early discussions” about a possible sale, nothing came out of them and, as reported, Adelson passed away from non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma this week.
