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.

Bruno Le Maire, France’s finance minister, has revealed that the subscription period for Française des Jeux’s (FDJ) initial public offering (IPO) will run from November 7–20. The privatisation of FDJ, the leading operator in Europe, in being anticipated as one of the year’s main highlights.

Bruno Le Maire said that French people and investors will have the chance to subscribe to FDJ shares between November 7 and November 20. He added that the state will not fix a limit for the offering, and that retail investors will get one free share for every 10 shares purchased and a 2% discount on the offer price.

The French state currently holds 72% of FDJ, but after the privatisation, it will only have 20% of the company. Government spokeswoman Sibeth Ndiaye said that the ordinance ends the FDJ monopoly to replace it with a limited-term right, set at 25 years and renewable.

“I hope that this privatisation popularly succeeds with the widest participation possible,” Le Maire said. The minister added that the privatisation will allow the company to develop and reach its full potential.

As part of the privatisation, the French government unveiled the creation of the L’autorité nationale des jeux (ANJ), which will replace L’autorité nationale de régulation des jeux en ligne (ARJEL).
