NBA 2K League Season 3 Draft Lottery: What Will Happen?Reading Time: 4 minutes

 

The third NBA 2K League Draft Lottery will be held on Friday, October 4th at the National Basketball Association (NBA) office in New York City.  The NBA 2K League Draft Lottery will determine the order of selection for the 13 lottery teams in the 2020 NBA 2K League Draft.  The two expansion teams, Hornets Venom GT and Gen.G’s recently announced NBA 2K League team, are ineligible to win the NBA 2K League Draft Lottery but will hold the fifth and sixth picks in each round of the 2020 NBA 2K League Draft.

Fourteen ping-pong balls numbered 1 through 14 will be placed in a lottery machine.  There are 1,001 possible combinations when four balls are drawn out of 14, without regard to their order of selection.  Prior to the lottery, 1,000 of those 1,001 combinations will be assigned to the 13 participating lottery teams.  If drawn, the combination 11-12-13-14 is disregarded to preserve an even 1,000 combinations.  By inverse order of their regular-season records, Pistons GT, Lakers Gaming and Knicks Gaming share the same chance of receiving the No. 1 overall draft pick and will be assigned the same number of combinations (150 each).  Grizz Gaming, the best team in the lottery at 9-7, will have 10 combinations out of 1,000.

The drawing process occurs in the following manner: All 14 balls are placed in the lottery machine and are mixed for 20 seconds; then the first ball is removed.  The remaining balls are mixed in the lottery machine for another 10 seconds, and then the second ball is drawn.  There is a 10-second mix, and then the third ball is drawn.  There is a 10-second mix, and then the fourth ball is drawn.  The team that has been assigned any combination of the first four numbers drawn will receive the number one pick.  The same process is repeated with the same ping-pong balls and lottery machine for the second pick and then again for the third pick.

If the same team comes up more than once, the result is discarded and another four-ball combination is selected.  Also, if the one unassigned combination is drawn, the result is discarded and the balls are drawn again.  The length of time the balls are mixed is monitored by a timekeeper who faces away from the machine and signals the machine operator after the appropriate amount of time has elapsed.

The order of selection for the teams that were in the draft lottery but do not win one of the top three picks will be determined by inverse order of their regular-season record.  Thus, Pistons GT can pick no lower than fourth, Lakers Gaming can pick no lower than seventh and Knicks Gaming can pick no lower than eighth.

The order of the 2020 NBA 2K League Draft will run as follows: 1) top-four lottery teams, 2) two expansion teams, 3) remaining nine lottery teams, and 4) eight playoff teams.  While the 2020 NBA 2K League Draft will be a “fixed” draft, the two expansion teams will reverse order each round.

The teams that qualified to participate in the 2019 NBA 2K League Playoffs will select in inverse order of their playoff finishes.  For instances where teams were eliminated in the same playoff round, draft order will be determined by the inverse order of the teams’ seeding in the playoffs.

The 2020 NBA 2K League Draft order is subject to change based on trades and additional player retainment.

More details on the 2020 NBA 2K League Draft will be announced at a later date.

NBA 2K LEAGUE EXPANSION DRAFT LOTTERY: WHAT WILL HAPPEN?

The second NBA 2K League Expansion Draft Lottery will also be held on Friday, October 4 at the NBA office in New York City to determine the draft order in the 2019 NBA 2K League Expansion Draft. The 2019 NBA 2K League Expansion Draft will begin the roster construction of the two expansion teams, Hornets Venom GT and Gen.G’s recently announced NBA 2K League team.

10 balls will be mixed in the lottery machine and mixed for 20 seconds.  Each expansion team will be assigned five balls. After being mixed for 20 seconds, one ball will be drawn out to determine who will have the first pick in the expansion draft.  The expansion draft will consist of three rounds, with each team’s third-round pick being optional.  Expansion teams have the option of selecting a third player in the expansion draft if they forgo their second-round pick in the 2020 NBA 2K League Draft. The expansion draft will be a snake draft, so the pick order will alternate in the second and third rounds (i.e. 1, 2, 2, 1, 1*, 2*).

Local Authorities in Bratislava Introduce New Restrictions on GamblingReading Time: < 1 minute

 

Local authorities in Bratislava have introduced new restrictions on gambling in the Slovak capital. Changes to the National Gambling Act which came into force earlier this year have allowed municipalities to take action against the dangerous vice.

As per the latest restrictions, gambling halls can no longer operate within 200 meters of schools or other educational facilities, institutions servicing children and youth and treatment centres for non-substance addictions.

Bingo, board games, gambling machines, video game terminals, technical equipment operated directly by players, or other technical equipment used for gambling will be completely banned from use on certain dates – most notably during national holidays.

Currently, a petition for a complete ban on gambling in Bratislava is underway and it has already gathered over 100,000 signatures. In September, Matúš Vallo, mayor of the Slovak capital announced the creation of a new working group that will be communicating with citizens and civil association and trying to answer their concerns.

BTG Launches its Millionaire Mystery Box SlotReading Time: < 1 minute

 

Big Time Gaming has launched its Millionaire Mystery Box slot exclusively with the Gaming Innovation Group’s Rizk.com online casino.

This 5-reel game has 243 different ways to win with mystery boxes thrown in. Inside the mystery boxes, you’ll discover any possible symbol, including special symbols such as the wild and scatter. Hitting the scatters will transport you into the hot seat, where you can win up to 24 free spins and a multiplier of up to 50× for the chance to win big money.

“Who Wants to Be Millionaire the TV show lends itself well to slot adaption because it already contains gambling elements coupled with the chance to win dizzying amounts of money. We retained the core elements that made Millionaire Megaways a hit, but we’ve added rich new features and a fun element of surprise. We know Rizk players are already loving it, but what would you expect from the thought leaders of modern slot development,” Nick Robinson, BTG’s CEO said.

“I’m delighted by the launch of Big Time Gaming’s newest blockbuster, Millionaire Mystery Box, exclusively on Rizk. The game has been a big hit with our players and, because it’s a household name and has excellent artwork and mechanics, it has provided some excellent marketing content. We want to extend a big thank you to Nik and all the team at BTG for coming up with another smash hit,” Ross Parkhill, Managing Director at GiG said.
