Red Bull M.E.O., the global mobile competition where Teamfight Tactics (TFT), Hearthstone®, and PUBG MOBILE players across the globe have been battling for supremacy, comes to an exciting close in March 2021! In its third year, the mobile open will close out its most ambitious season to date with an extraordinary thirteen day world final beginning on March 17th, transporting fans to a virtual Istanbul. The event will see national winners from 28 countries compete on the world stage to identify the best players on the planet. Alongside the highest tier of competition, the world final will offer fans a digital festival celebrating one of the world’s most beautiful cities, including virtual tours, exciting live streams, interactive challenges, and much more.

FreeBitco.in Takes the Reins of FUN in Multi-Million Dollar Token Acquisition

Reading Time: 3 minutes

 

Through a series of ventures, FreeBitco.in seeks to promote the mass adoption and utilization of FUN Token in the iGaming and Gaming spaces.

FreeBitco.in, one of the biggest Bitcoin iGaming websites in the world, has acquired the majority of FunFair’s remaining cold storage of FUN tokens, the native cryptocurrency of the FunFair gaming ecosystem. The cold storage holds 4.45 billion FUN Tokens and FreeBitco.in has acquired 3.75 billion tokens.

Through this acquisition, FreeBitco.in plans to invest in the token’s long-term development.

“Since 2013, FreeBitco.in’s goal has always been to provide online gaming enthusiasts with a frictionless, transparent, and truly fair experience,” said a statement by FreeBitco.in. “There’s no better fit than the FUN token to help us significantly enhance our efforts.”
The FUN Token
Since 2017, FunFair Technologies has been striving to deliver a guaranteed fair, decentralized gaming experience to the mass market through blockchain technology utilizing the FUN token.

“Despite several industry firsts and significant milestones in proving that use case, it has recently become apparent that FreeBitco.in has developed a different and superior use case for the FUN token,” said a statement released by FunFair.

This announcement refers to FreeBitco.in’s Premium Membership Program; a feature that incentivizes FreeBitco.in users to buy and hold FUN tokens for significant benefits. This activity has driven considerable volume into the token economy without the burden of significant on-chain transactions.

“There’s no doubt that FreeBitco.in’s customers are currently generating the bulk of FUN token commercial activity rather than FunFair’s customers,” continued the statement.

“With this in mind and for the token economy to maintain its recent success, FunFair has agreed to sell the majority of their FUN token holdings to FreeBitco.in.”

FUN is an ERC20 token listed on major exchanges Binance, BitFinex, HitBTC, Changelly, and OKEx, as well as decentralized exchanges like Uniswap.
FreeBitco.in’s Vision for FUN
FreeBitco.in aspires to grow the FUN token as an independent entity through a series of upcoming projects.

“Our sole objective, as of now, is to work to increase FUN’s utility and value,” said FreeBitco.in. “We’re thoroughly committed to its long-term growth.”

Accordingly, FreeBitco.in is preparing to undertake the following initiatives:

1. Strategic Burning of Tokens: FreeBitco.in plans to invest a substantial portion of its bottom line into strategically acquiring and burning FUN tokens to elevate their value over time.

2. Improving Liquidity: FreeBitco.in is working on increasing FUN’s liquidity across all markets, thus making it easily accessible and tradeable. This is evidenced by a cumulative influx of $3 million in the FUN/ETH and FUN/USDC trading pairs on Uniswap recently, and other exchanges are set to follow.

3. New Blockchain: Based on the Ethereum blockchain, FUN prided itself on being fast, open, and secure. However, the growth of DeFi on Ethereum has been pushing gas prices up for many months, making the adoption of FUN too expensive for users. FreeBitco.in is actively exploring opportunities to port the FUN Token to a new blockchain that is faster and cheaper.

4. Dedicated Wallet: FreeBitco.in is working on creating a dedicated wallet for FUN users that can operate seamlessly between different iGaming platforms. The wallet would also help users convert their FUN tokens into multiple crypto and fiat currencies.

5. Proactive Development: FreeBitco.in is assembling a development team to build innovative, consumer-facing apps based around the FUN token, thus creating more use cases, strengthening utility, and promoting adoption.

6. Creating Effective Partnerships: FreeBitco.in seeks to build productive partnerships and affiliations with other iGaming entities to promote FUN’s identity as a transactional currency in online gambling.

Note: This is not a partnership between the two organizations, namely FreeBitco.in and FunFair Technologies. The aforementioned acquisition and venture is at the sole discretion of FreeBitco.in.

Spotlight Sports Group nominated for Sports Technology Awards

Spotlight Sports Group has been nominated for the Sports Technology Awards 2021. The award focuses on Spotlight Sports Group’s in-play ‘Superfeed’ API which provides live sports betting content based on data manipulation and on-field events.

The Sports Technology Awards feature 117 of the world’s biggest brands, including 30 sports, 19 sports bodies, ten broadcasters and nine tournaments, along with a myriad of technology brands of all sizes. The combined, innovative efforts of all brands involved enabled the sports sector to respond to the most challenging year in recent times.

The judges, which featured tech visionaries, sports business leaders and current and former international athletes including Alistair Brownlee, Darren Gough and Eoin Morgan, faced a more challenging time than usual with more than half the 19 categories resulting in a tie, often involving up to four entries vying for top place.

It is the first year Spotlight Sports Group has been nominated as the group continues to focus on its data-led sports betting approach to creating products. The revolutionary betting technology in the in-play Superfeed provides real-time in-play insights handwritten by expert sports journalists and delivered across the key betting markets for 90 football competitions in 70 languages. Spotlight Sports Group is one of the few betting technology businesses to be nominated.

Discussing the shortlist, Spotlight Sports Group managing director, Harry von Behr, said:

‘‘We’re delighted to be shortlisted for the Sports Technology Awards this year. Over the past number of years we have developed a portfolio of market-leading betting technology products and our in-play Superfeed is the pinnacle of our product suite.

‘‘Using cutting-edge technology and our editorial expertise to deliver the best sports betting content is what makes our business different and we’re delighted to be recognised for that.

‘‘Everyone who was nominated this year has done exceptionally well as we know the level of competition is of the highest standard. It all makes for an exciting night at the awards ceremony in May.’’

Rebecca Hopkins, CEO of The STA Group, which owns the awards, explained:

‘‘Most years we see one or two categories needing casting votes to determine the overall winner – this year we had ten categories which were tied. This is unprecedented but a testament to the high standard of entries and the calibre of brands participating. While the initial round of judging has been sufficient to determine the shortlist, we still don’t have all the winners agreed – it’s an amazing problem to have but, as one of our judges said in their feedback, ‘Covid might have forced the industry’s hand to innovate but  . . . the industry’s response has been magnificent’. The place the sector is in right now might be challenging but it is hugely exciting too.’’

The Group will be holding a virtual awards ceremony on May 6 but plans are in place to hold a celebration dinner at The Londoner in the autumn, once it is fully safe to network.

The most impressive feature in this video slot is the Major Roulette, where players can multiply their bet and obtain wins as interesting as the already well-known Minor, Major and Grand wins.

Not only do the bonus symbols grant players access to the free spins feature, but they also hide surprising multipliers. With 3 or more bonus symbols players can earn up to 25 free spins.

Music-themed casino strikes a chord with gamified offering

Casino and sportsbook platform provider Soft2Bet has launched a new online casino, Boka.

Loaded with gamification features, the MGA-licensed operator brand allows users to collect musical notes, which can be exchanged for bonuses in the site’s shop as disk-spinning players try their hand at its enthralling slot collection.

Soft2Bet’s latest project marks the most recent addition to a multi-award-winning portfolio of more than 30 popular sportsbooks and casinos, including the travel-themed sports betting brand Betinia, launched to widespread acclaim earlier this year.

With a player reach extending through regulated markets across the globe, the company currently holds MGA, SGA and Curacao licences, with further certification from within the EU expected to follow.

Boris Chaikin, CEO at Soft2Bet, said: “We’re inviting players to put on their dancing shoes and feel the rhythm of the night in a musical jamboree named Boka.

“Jam-packed with slots, table games and tournaments of the highest quality, the new online casino provides fun-loving players with an unforgettable entertainment experience.

ITL set to showcase latest recyclers and facial recognition at Russia’s VendExpo

One of world’s cash handling technology leaders, Innovative Technology, are set to demo their latest products aimed at the vending and self-service market at Moscow’s VendExpo on 23-25th March 2021. The 14th international exhibition of vending technologies and self-service systems will be held at the Expo centre following the postponement of the event last year due to the pandemic.

Georgiy Frolov, Business Development Manager commented, “VendExpo is an important exhibition in the ITL calendar for the team in Russia, even more so this year given the lack of opportunities to reach our audience in person during the past 12 months. This new era of self-service is fast moving, technology-led and presents exciting opportunities for the future. VendExpo is an ideal platform to network with new and existing customers from the region to better understand their needs and requirements going forward.”

Georgiy continued, “Spectral note recyclers, coin hoppers, age verification and face recognition will all be present at our booth A302.”

“From discussions with our partners we are seeing that recycling has become a key trend. We co-operated on a bunch of projects in 2020 – all built around NV22 Spectral or NV11 Spectral. Our partners and customers report great results from the Spectral Payout field tests, so we look forward to being able to show its value to the market.  The Spectral Payoutisa state-of-the-art recycler which is ideal for medium volume applications requiring multi-denomination recycling at fast speeds.  An 80 note ‘true’ mixed denomination recycler itcan store all denominations from a given currency, eliminating change starvation & reducing the note float level required to keep machines operational- imperative for vending and self-service applications. Of course, security is key – Spectral Technology gives complete note image capture (highest spectral coverage) scanning millions of datapoints to authenticate the validity of notes and give the highest level of stained note detection. We are also proud of our SMART Coin System – a multi-denomination coin recycler, which is now able to work with 1-10 RUB coins.”

Concluding Georgiy commented, “Biometrics is another area of key interest, so we invite visitors to come and see our age and face recognition system in action. We are looking forward to showing our latest products to both manufacturers and operators of self-service solutions. Experts foresee the vending market to grow by almost 7% from now to 2026, and we are sure ITL products will find their place in the new solutions coming into the market.”
