Lucky Betting Shop – Your New Favorite Expanse Slot!

Have you ever bet on sports online? Sports betting is a very popular pastime for millions of people around the world. That’s exactly what Expanse Studios was aiming for in its latest slot, bringing sports betting into the slot industry.

Available only in Meridianbet casino, Lucky Betting Shop is a fun and rewarding slot machine with a sports betting theme. Not online betting, mind you, but betting in shops. It nicely replicates the atmosphere of said shops, including betting tickets that serve as wilds to form lucrative winning combinations.

Lucky Betting Shop is an excellent slot for all sports fans. This isn’t your typical slot game. Instead, it has managed to incorporate the process of betting in slot form, creating a very unique machine.

Fill Out the Bet Tickets

The Lucky Betting Shop slot has 1,024 paylines. Bets start at a minimum of 25 coins. All wins are multiplied by coin bets and pay from left to right. The only exception are scatter wins which pay any.

The Lucky Betting Shop symbols include sports betting paraphernalia. The action takes place in a lucky betting shop where you can win on a wide range of sports. The card royals are low-win symbols, while the punters and employees pay more. The betting ticket is the wild, substituting for all symbols in winning combinations except for the scatter.

The symbols offer mixed pay. They can appear in full and half-size. When they appear as half-size, they pay according to the paytable. The lady behind the counter pays the most – 250x your stake for five of a kind. The punter is right beneath in the pecking order, paying 100x for the same combination.

In the base game, random multipliers can be added to the reels, varying between 50x and 250x your stake. There’s only one winning position on the multiplier reel. The same feature is active during the free spins round, where you can win staggering bet slips.

Bonus Features

The Lucky Betting Shop slot has a free spins round that is triggered by three scatters anywhere on the reels. You’ll get a total of 15 free spins that can be retriggered. The slot game uses special reels during this round. The free spins are played at the triggering bet.

There’s another feature which will surely excite sports betting fans. It’s called Bet Ticket and can be bought by clicking on the bet slip in the lower left corner. This is a side (optional) bet that can only be purchased during idle base gameplay. You can have up to two betting slips active. To activate the feature, you first choose one of three symbols and the number of spins.

For example, you can choose the employee or punter to appear 21 or 25 times in 12 spins. You then select your bet on the right and start spinning. If you manage to get your chosen symbol a certain number of times in the following 12 spins, you win your betting ticket with a solid multiplier.

Absolute Sports Fun

If you’re a fan of sports betting, you’ll surely have fun with Lucky Betting Shop. Try your luck at the betting ticket and you can earn stunning rewards thanks to the active multipliers. It’s a pretty fun slot machine that will delight sports fans, so give it a try at Meridianbet and enjoy the betting action.


Play’n GO Take a Trip to the Farm in Latest Release!

Reading Time: 2 minutes


Play’n GO have released their final title of 2020, with a simple little slot by the name of Piggy Bank Farm.

This is not just another excellent release from Play’n GO; it also marks the fulfillment of their 52-game promise for 2020. While it was never really in doubt that the supplier would deliver, it’s now official.

Starting with Legacy of the Dead back in January, and finishing with this latest title, it’s been a phenomenal year for Play’n GO, with the release of a number of high-profile slots that performed brilliantly in the market.

A casual slot, perfect for a broader demographic, Piggy Bank Farm follows the story of Farmer Joe, who planted some plastic pieces with some valuable coins and up sprouted a field of Piggy Banks! It’s a zany premise guaranteed to bring a smile to players faces as they play this fun title.

Piggy Bank Farm has a markedly different feel from the adventurous theme of last week’s Golden Osiris release, and it is this variety that has made this year such a success for them.

Titles like Riches of Robin, Rich Wilde and the Shield of Athena, and Dawn of Egypt were just three titles to dominate upon their release; while innovative slots like Diamond Vortex, Gold Volcano and Riddle Reels; A Case of Riches all offered brand new ways for players to enjoy slot entertainment.

Of course, this year saw several high-profile sequels also put out into the market, the most anticipated being Reactoonz 2, which saw record numbers on its release day, and beyond.

While the year might be over, the work isn’t, according to CEO Johan Törnqvist, speaking about the company’s success:

“We have seen ourselves progress and raise the bar year on year at Play’n GO and, while 2020 represents our most outstanding achievement to date, we’re still looking for more.

We will continue to innovate, to entertain and to provide world-class services to our operating partners, as we look to cement our place as the worlds’ number one supplier.

2020 was great, 2021 will be even better.”

Looking at their track record, it’s easy to get excited over what Play’n GO will bring next.

Piggy Bank Farm is out on general release today.

SoftSwiss saves its clients over 10 million euro in 2020 via its Anti-Fraud Service

Reading Time: 2 minutes


SoftSwiss is proud to announce that in 2020 the company’s anti-fraud and security checks service saved its clients an outstanding amount of 10 million euro.

SoftSwiss anti-fraud service makes part of the 24/7 Customer Support and Player Retention Services available to all SoftSwiss Online Casino Platform clients with careful assistance from our qualified customer support associates.

The service enables bonus abuse checks on players, checking and blocking of duplicate player accounts, further investigation of potential collusions, as well as other abusive behavior. Furthermore, SoftSwiss anti-fraud provides identification and recognition of game patterns used in order to extract benefits. What’s also highly important, it consults on GDPR compliance and data protection. The Anti-Fraud team acts strictly in accordance with the gaming websites’ Terms & Conditions, as well as applicable licensing and regulatory requirements.

One of the great examples of exceptional work done by the SoftSwiss anti-fraud team this year happened when the team received a seemingly regular check request, which ended up being quite an extraordinary one. During the initial check it was found out that the player was an abuser. The team made a decision to request verification of the player’s account including Source of Funds / Source of Wealth, as these documents are not commonly asked and therefore are not included in a common package of documents bought on the black market. The player uploaded all of the documents the next day, which should have made us believe they were genuine. Nevertheless, during the detailed document check it was noticed that the player’s language in e-wallet and their native language were different raising a suspicion that the player was a drop once again. Due to that, the player was asked to pass Skype verification. Finally, during the verification call it was concluded that the player was not an account owner but a drop.

Vitali Matsukevich, Head of B2C at SoftSwiss noted: “We are ecstatic that our team managed to save the day this year with such a large amount of money retained for our clients. Everyday we carefully look into all suspicious activities happening on our Platform and combat fraud, using a lot of different tools and methods. We keep on working on even more fascinating AI projects in cooperation with the Data Science and Platform Development teams. And thanks to that in the coming year we expect to increase efficiency and security of business operations for our clients”.
