Ubisoft welcome Sorare in their Entrepreneurs Lab’s program to bring blockchain game to football fans around the globeReading Time: 2 minutes

 

Leading blockchain gaming company Sorare today announced their selection inside the Ubisoft Entrepreneurs Lab’s program to bring its groundbreaking game to football fans around the globe.

Sorare is a new digital platform for football fans to collect, trade and play with officially licensed blockchain cards.

“Ubisoft has been the first leading game editor to willingly explore the potential of Blockchain technology for gaming” said Nicolas Julia, CEO of Sorare. “Sorare is proud to work alongside Ubisoft gaming experts to create an unparalleled digital experience for football fans.”

Football fans have been collecting and playing with physical cards for decades. When it comes to the digital world, it has been impossible to collect them. Traditional game items were neither digitally scarce, nor tradeable; they were not actually owned by gamers.

Unlike other digital cards, Sorare’s blockchain cards are limited edition digital collectibles that gamers can freely trade and use.

Sorare’s fantasy football game is currently in open beta and is already officially licensed by 30 football clubs. Dozens of other major clubs are to join in the coming weeks.

The game features a weekly fantasy football experience where managers can compose teams of 5 blockchain cards and earn rewards. Managers get ranked based on the performance of their players on the pitch, and bonus points related to the power of their blockchain cards.

“We are enthusiastic about Sorare innovation to introduce this new game, with what can become coveted digital collectibles for football fans around the world » said Nicolas Pouard, Blockchain Initiative Director

“Collaborating with Ubisoft allows Sorare to benefit from the expertise we have acquired over the last 30 years in technology, user experience and game design. By supporting Sorare, Ubisoft wants to empower entrepreneurs who will contribute to the creation of the entertainment of tomorrow.”

Watch the winning blaze explode !

Tom Horn Gaming’s new slot game, Hot’n’Fruity, promises to satisfy any craving for a feature-packed, visually attractive gaming entertainment.

In recent months the provider has upped its game, releasing more engaging titles with new innovative features, while still keeping classic player experience alive. This well-balanced combination of new ideas, presented in the form of game mechanics, and a tried and tested game concept, theme or visual is reflected also in Hot’n’Fruity.

Despite its thematic simplicity, this 5-reel slot is extremely engrossing due to its nifty features and winning rhythm. There are two symbols to look for. A W-star symbol appears anywhere on the screen and acts like a random Wild showering players with unexpected big wins.

R-stars are the ultimate characters to come across in Hot’n’Fruity as they trigger a Respin Wild feature when they land on the 2nd, 3rd or 4th reel. They expand to cover the whole reel, remaining in place while the other reels respin.

This game is sure to award lucky players with many winning opportunities. In addition to a nicely devised winning pattern, the art style is extremely well drawn and quickly pulls players into the settings.

The game is just another fruity slot, but a more inspired, nuanced alternative sure to capture the attention of players in many markets. It is available worldwide from 15th October 2019.
