LIGHTNING BOX™ ENTERS A MYSTICAL FOREST WILDERNESS IN CLAW AND ROAR™

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Light & Wonder, Inc. (NASDAQ and ASX: LNW) (together with its subsidiaries, “Light & Wonder” or “L&W”) has released Claw and Roar, from specialist slot provider Lightning Box, one of Light & Wonder’s in-house studios, exhibiting a plethora of animal symbols that award unique modifiers and features.

In this 3×5 adventure, players step into a blissful forest, making friends with a number of creatures along the way, including the grizzly bear, who stars as a Wild symbol.

During the base game, three Wilds triggers respins, with up to six available, meaning the number of respins is further boosted. The respins continue until no more Wilds appear.

Bear footprints act as the scatter, with three, four or five of these initially activating eight free games. The Wild symbol also features in free games, as up to four can also launch respins, removing the lowest royal whilst issuing an additional free game.

With a powerful 243 ways to win, Claw and Roar is a Light & Wonder title currently exclusive to Rush Street Interactive in Michigan, Ontario and West Virginia .

Michael Maokhamphiou, Studio Director at Light & Wonder, said: “Claw and Roar is an enchanting addition to our portfolio, transporting players to an epic forest where the animals can help them receive prizes.

“The action-packed free games round is bolstered by the Wild symbol, which can assist in adding further riches by granting an extra round whilst also granting players increasing respins.”

Rob Procter, VP of Game Development at Light & Wonder, said: “Lightning Box is elevating its established portfolio with the launch of Claw and Roar, proudly showcasing classic features and modifiers that still resonate with its player base.

“With a trip to a beautiful forest guaranteed, players can engage themselves within the epic gameplay and state-of-the-art aesthetics, as this new title hits the brief when it comes to slot creation.”

Light & Wonder’s ecosystem offers more than 3,500 games from a global network of in-house and third-party game studios, with unrivalled ease of integration that is robust and secure. All games available through the aggregation platform are supported with a comprehensive range of responsible gambling tools, helping to deliver a safe and enjoyable gaming experience for players.

Meridianbet, a member of the Golden Matrix Group (NASDAQ: GMGI), in partnership with Meridianbet Foundation, Expanse Studios, and BC Crvena zvezda Meridianbet announces the launch of a significant humanitarian initiative, ‘Scan. Help.’, aimed at supporting maternity hospitals across Southeast Europe.

The rollout of this action to other market territories is expected in the remainder of 2024.

How It Works

For every scanned QR code and subsequent registration on the Meridian Foundation’s website, funds will be allocated towards equipping five maternity hospitals in Serbia. This innovative approach not only raises awareness but also actively involves the community in our CSR activities.

The initiative is currently ongoing with high media presence and is broadcasted during Southeast Europe’s regional basketball Finals series (ABA League). BC Red Star players wear jerseys featuring the QR code, with additional promotion through basketball arena ads, TV ads, and more, encouraging fans and supporters to participate.

A Unified Effort for Community Impact

The ‘Scan. Help.’ campaign is a collaborative effort involving Meridianbet, Meridianbet foundation, Expanse Studios, and basketball club Crvena zvezda Meridianbet, Southeast Europe’s leading basketball club, of which Meridianbet is the name sponsor. The initiative is designed to leverage our collective resources and influence to make a meaningful impact on local communities.

Multi-Stakeholder Support and Growing Participation

The ‘Scan. Help.’ campaign has received institutional support ad backing from the Ministry of Health, reinforcing the importance and legitimacy of this cause. Additionally, several companies have already expressed their desire to contribute, with provisions made for donations through the Meridian Foundation’s account. This broadening support network amplifies the initiative’s reach and potential impact.

This campaign exemplifies Meridianbet’s dedication to sustainable development and community well-being. In 2023 alone, the company has launched 225 CSR campaigns, reflecting the commitment to making a lasting impact.
