What they’ve come up with is a fundamental need to raise awareness and promote greater responsibility. All this time, regulators have been pumping revenue into the promotion of gaming. Every other commercial encourages adults to go out and buy a lottery ticket. Billboards depict the broad-grinning excitement of slots players and table games enthusiast.

Tiki Vikings Online Slot Defies Logic, Pays Dividends

Slots makers Microgaming and JFTW deliver a clash of themes in Tiki Vikings Slot.

Playtech to be OLG’s New BetBuddy for Responsible Gambling

Playtech joins Ontario in responsible online gambling campaign. The promotion of responsible gambling has long been a priority of the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corp. The OLG is tasked with enforcing regulatory compliance among all gaming entities in the province, including land-based casinos and charitable gaming facilities, as well as the PlayOLG iGaming website. That job has grown indubitably larger in recent years. Ontario has allocated the managerial duties across dozens of land-based casino to private companies, easing their own load, but at the same time doubling their need for intense scrutiny of those operations. Expansion of the online gaming venue also requires a deeper and more meaningful level of supervision. That’s where the provincial regulator’s partnership with Playtech comes in. The two have been working closely together since 2014, with the London-based digital gambling games publisher supplying content and backend services for Ontario’s online gambling website. Now, their partnership … Continue reading

The Shameful Promotion of Gambling without Morals

UK vs Canada Gambling Laws – A Simple Comparison Turns Ugly! Welcome, and thank you for your interest in reading what I’ve written hear today, but I warn you, the information you’re about to read, while factual (on my end) and informative (to those vested in iGaming) also includes my own ranting over the irresponsibility of others who seek only dollar signs, ignoring the humane side of this unique and volatile industry. With that being said, if still interested, please continue… I read an (arguably?) ill-conceived editorial today that had me scratching my head. I’m not going to name names or link to it for several reasons. First of all, I don’t wish to spread some of the ideals found within it. Secondly, it wasn’t a famous person or media outlet that published it. It was nothing more than a thoughtless online gambling affiliate looking to push some promotional links. … Continue reading

Habanero Launches Comical Slot Machine, Mount Mazuma

Mount Mazuma Slot features hot 97.98% RTP at Habanero online casinos. It’s not often that online slot machines come along with anything better than a 96% return to player (RTP). The RTP determines what percentage a game pays out, over a long period of time, compared to what it takes in. Those typical 96% RTP slots will return, on average, $96 for every $100 wagered on them. That’s a far cry better than what you’ll find at land-based casinos, but nowhere near the best paying slot machines on the digital market. In the final days of March, Habanero Systems delivered a new online slot that not only comes with a fun, comical slot machine theme. It’s also equipped with a tantalizing RTP of 97.98%. As such, the new slots game, titled Mount Mazuma, is already attracting a great deal of attention as it erupts at Habanero-powered online casinos. Mount Mazuma … Continue reading
