40th Anniversary of New Jersey Casino Gaming at East Coast Gaming CongressReading Time: 2 minutes

Atlantic City, NJ, June 06, 2018 — The 22nd Annual East Coast Gaming Congress and NexGen Gaming Forum, to be held June 13 – 14 at Harrah’s Waterfront Conference Center here, will mark the 40th anniversary of gaming in Atlantic City with a special panel of experts who will examine the historic milestone of the first legal casinos to open in the United States outside of Nevada.

Panel participants, each of whom offers a unique perspective on the history and future of gaming in Atlantic City, are:
·    Joseph Fusco, Esq., Cooper Levenson, first Director of Licensing, New Jersey Casino Control Commission
·    Mark Giannantonio, President & CEO, Resorts Casino Hotel
·    Daniel Heneghan, Public Information Officer, New Jersey Casino Control Commission & former Press of Atlantic City gaming reporter
·    Steve Norton, former Executive Vice President, Resorts International
·    Kevin O’Toole, executive director, Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board & former New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement Deputy Attorney General

The panel will be moderated by Spectrum Gaming Group Managing Director Michael Pollock, former Editorial Page Editor for The Press of Atlantic City and former spokesperson for the Casino Control Commission. He also authored the award-winning book “Hostage to Fortune: Atlantic City and Casino Gambling, published by the Center for Analysis of Public Issues in Princeton, NJ.

“Atlantic City pioneered the concept of legal casinos as a ‘unique tool of urban redevelopment,’ and that story of highs and lows, tragedies and triumphs, has been unfolding daily for four decades. This panel is equipped to deal with the regulatory and economic aspects of that 40-year history, as well as the human and personal stories,” Pollock said. “This is more than a historic look. This panel will offer insights that every gaming jurisdiction anywhere can learn from as they plan their own futures.”

ECGC includes the NexGen Gaming Forum, Day 1 cocktail reception at The Pool at Harrah’s, Keynote Luncheon with New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy, nine panel discussions, the signature CEO Roundtable, and outstanding networking opportunities.

The ECGC program has been approved Continuing Legal Education credits in Pennsylvania (5.5 general credit hours) and New Jersey (4.8 general credit hours).

More than 500 gaming operators, equipment manufacturers, regulators, attorneys, architects, analysts, public officials, investors and other gaming-related professionals are expected to attend ECGC. The full two-day conference schedule and registration is at www.ecgc.us.

Bryke launches Link King in SpainReading Time: 1 minute

 

Bryke, the video slots brand of Zitro, the famous  Luxemburg-based gaming company, has launched its highly successful flagship product in Spain: Link King, a unique and innovative type of game that is not like any other games available in Spain.

Link King offers impressive new features: 4 spectacular levels of progressive jackpots that are frequently granted through the bonus game, increasing the chances of winning. In addition, prizes are linked between terminals, raising their value and the player’s excitement. Spanish players can enjoy a different way of playing never before seen in Spain and already present in the best casinos in the world.

The staging of LINK KING is impressive thanks to the new FUSION cabinet that stands out due to its advanced technology and “Ultra Slim” design, occupying less space than any other piece on the market and offering the player greater comfort.

The combination of LINK KING and FUSION will transform Spanish lounges into a game show that will appeal to both the operator and player, just like what’s happening in international markets.

RTG launched a new game, called I, ZombieReading Time: 1 minute

 

RTG Asia, the Philippines-based gaming company, has launched a new game called I, Zombie, which is a five-reel, 25 line game. It features Amy, a gorgeous zombie killer.

“The zombie epidemic continues, but now it’s taken a personal toll: Nancy has turned! Her beautiful blue eyes have gone red, her carefully manicured nails have grown into claw-like things. She might be the WORST kind of zombie — still so sexy, so attractive, so deadly. You have to see her! And, as in life, so WILD. And she is your WILD too. You may even see two more her appear and they’ll jump across the reels… not to kill you but to help you win more,” – commented RTG Asia.

“Maybe if she could see herself in the mirror she could change back… would that help? Could that help? It’ll certainly help YOU: when you get three mirrors – the game’s scatter – you get free spins. Get four mirrors and your free spin prize doubles. Five mirrors, it trebles,” it concludes.

William Hill US seeks modifications in regulationsReading Time: 1 minute

 

William Hill US has written a letter to the Nevada Gaming Control Board (NGCB) seeking modifications in current regulations so as to eliminate some technical glitches. This is after FanDuel paid out on an erroneous ticket that allowed the ticket holder to win US$82k in New Jersey.

It is learnt that William Hill US mainly asked the power for the Chair to use discretion in rescinding bets where an obvious error had occurred, such as wrong pricing. “This would address the situation that occurred recently in New Jersey where an operator issued a wager on a football game at a price that was obviously incorrect,” reads the letter.

Sylvia Tiscareno, general counsel of William Hill, testified during NGCB’s meeting this week and said that the request comes after several internal discussions. The panel at the meeting decided to consider the testimony before making a decision.
