iGaming experts Bojoko analyse female representation in filmReading Time: 2 minutes

 

  • New research from iGaming specialists Bojoko highlights the lack of female representation across the top 10 highest grossing superhero movies

  • Detailed analysis includes screen time, poster billing position and salary splits of featured characters
  • 91% of screen time is dominated by male characters
  • 77 of 256 named characters are female

Despite many possessing superhuman abilities, the representation of female characters across superhero movies is low, new research has found.

Information from Battle of The Super Sexes features key gender stats from the top ten highest grossing superhero movies across a number of categories, including screen time, the number of directors and producers, named characters, movie poster billing position and more.

The analysis shows how 91% of superhero screen time is dominated by male characters, with men featuring on screen for an average of almost 13 minutes compared to four for women.

Of the 69 superheroes that appear across the ten films, the majority (52%) are male, and of the 256 named characters, 77 are female.

Men make up 75% of the combined 105 main listed producers and there are no female directors. However, despite there being more male superheroes overall, when reviewing each of the film’s movie posters actresses names are positioned higher than actors. (On average, female actress’s names are featured at position 5.69 compared to men at position 4.72).

The interactive also features key summary data for each film, including how Black Panther (2018) includes the highest amount of named female characters compared to men (16 vs 10). The Dark Knight Rises (2012) features 18 named characters, three of which are women.

In Captain America: Civil War (2016), main male characters are on screen for a total of two hours and 30 minutes, whereas the main female characters feature for less than 30 minutes.

Key film data also showcases comments from female cast members regarding the gender pay gap. For example, when discussing the Iron Man series, Gwyneth Paltrow, who plays superheroine Pepper Potts, called being paid less than her male co-stars “painful”, and that “nobody is worth the money that Robert Downey Jr. is worth”. When asked what the pay difference was, she said: “if I told you the disparity you would probably be surprised”.

Last year it was also extensively reported that Scarlett Johansson was paid the same wage as her male counterparts Chris Evans (Captain America) and Chris Hemsworth (Thor) for both The Avengers (2012) and Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015).

Spinola Gaming to launch Premium Instant GamesReading Time: < 1 minute

 

After the successful release of Instant Games in 2019, Spinola Gaming is launching a set of Premium Instant Games designed to bridge the gap between lotteries and online slot games.

These games focus on high quality visuals, and are designed to move land-based lottery players online, opening up this untapped demographic to the world of online casinos.

Seasoned online casino players will find familiarity in Spinola Gaming’s lottery UI, which has been designed similar to traditional online slot games, to attract slot players and convert them into lottery lovers thanks to the high value multi-million jackpots on offer.

Premium Instant Games will give players the opportunity to win jackpots of up to €250 million. All of Spinola Gaming’s jackpots are fully insured, meaning operators can offer huge jackpots to their players, without the associated pay-out risk.

Ade Repcenko, Founder and CEO of Spinola Gaming, commented: “Online casinos are always looking for ways to offer their players the biggest jackpots possible, but positioning lotteries within the current online casino offering has often been perceived a challenge. Our development of these Premium Instant Games coupled with the high-value jackpot payouts we have available, provide a smooth and seamless transition for casino players not yet accustomed to a lottery product.”

As with all Spinola Gaming products, Premium Instant Games will be available in all languages and currencies and are fully manageable and data-tracked through the industry’s most advanced and powerful back-office, Connex.

The Spinola Gaming team will be giving exclusive pre-launch demos of Premium Instant Games at ICE. Book yours by getting in touch on sales@spinolagaming.com.

Pamunkey Tribe Proposes $350M Casino Project

Pamunkey Tribe Proposes $350M Casino ProjectReading Time: < 1 minute

 

The Pamunkey Indian Tribe in Virginia has announced its plans to develop a $350 million casino resort in the state’s capital and a separate one in Norfolk.

The Tribe purchased three properties in south Richmond for the development of the casino and a fourth parcel about 5 miles away to create a work-force training centre that could ultimately be converted into a grocery store or health clinic, representatives for the tribe announced.

The proposed resort would include a 275-room hotel tower featuring views of the James River and the downtown skyline containing a spa, fitness centre, pool, “high-end steak and seafood restaurant,” sports bar and 1000-space parking garage, according to a statement from the tribe.

The tribe plans to build a separate casino along the Elizabeth River in Norfolk, according to an agreement signed for the purchase of 13.4 acres from the city.

The Richmond project can move forward regardless because the Pamunkeys are the only tribe in Virginia with federal gaming rights under the Indian Regulatory Gaming Act. But the Norfolk project depends on the General Assembly passing and Gov. Ralph Northam signing legislation that would allow commercial gaming in Virginia.
