News and Analysis

WynnBet New Jersey Welcomes Bragg Studios' Content

Bragg Studios content is live at WynnBet Casino, New Jersey. As of this week, players can enjoy Bragg titles and those from the supplier's partner studios, like Atomic Slot Lab, Spin Games, and others. 

Here's what Bragg Gaming Group COO Kunal Mishra said about the deal; "we are confident our innovative proprietary and exclusive third-party games will help WynnBET continue engaging with their existing players at high levels and attract new players. This new content introduction highlights the continued successful introduction of our proprietary and third-party content with leading North American igaming operators."

PGCB Issues Fines For Two Operators

The PGCB has issued two fines, one to Hollywood Casino for $78,000 for failing to meet the minimum levels of security staffing on the premises and another of $22,000 to TCS John Huxley America for failing to file the proper licensing application.

The regulator has also affected state-wide casino bans using the involuntary ban system for five adults who left minors unattended while they gambled. In all cases, the children were left in vehicles while their guardians visited casinos.

DGC Signs Deal with Caesars Digital

DGC and Caesars Digital have hashed out a deal to see DGC game content live on Caesar's platforms across the US, starting with its online casino in New Jersey. DGC is incredibly popular, stocking hit titles like Thunderstruck, 9 Loaded Pots, 9 Masks of Fire, Assassin Moon, and 3 Tiny Gods.

President of iGaming at Caesars Digital, Matt Sunderland, said, "DGC's impressive and award-winning portfolio of premium games will deliver engaging and entertaining experiences for our players. We're excited to launch these titles on Caesars Sportsbook & Casino in New Jersey and look forward to bringing them to customers in even more states."

Fanatics Live in MA

In our last piece of good news for the week, sports bettors in Massachusetts have a new online sportsbook to wager with - Fanatics. While not fully live, the platform has launched in beta mode inviting some customers to test the platform.

Non-invited players must join the list and wait for the formal launch before accessing the sportsbook. However, Fanatic has released some early details, such as what their new bonus will be, and it's a terrific deal; spend $5, and you'll get $200 in bonus bets - talk about building the hype!

Game of the Week

Peaky Blinders Slot: Pragmatic Play, RTP: 96.50%

The first thing to mention is that this isn't a new online slot, but it's brand new to stateside casinos. It's based on Peaky Blinders, a hit UK TV show based on the real-life Birmingham gang that ran the streets from 1880-1910 and was involved in everything from gambling and racketeering to politics. 

The show has already aired in the US and has proved widely popular. Following its success, this month saw online casinos in the USA list the Peaky Blinders Slot, which is developed by Pragmatic Play and the studio's first-ever branded game. 

Set on 5x3 reels with 20 lines, this game brings all your favorite characters to life on the reels - that's Michael, Polly, Arthur, and Thomas. There's also a wild symbol that subs, and two types of scatter symbols, leading to three bonus rounds.

  1. Shelby Betting Shop Bonus: Hitting a single betting shop bonus scatter on reel 5, and all character symbols on the reels will get an instant cash payout awarded.
  2. By Order of the Peaky Blinders Bonus: If the By Order of the Peaky Blinders scatter lands on reel 5 with no other scatters on the reels, you'll get a re-spin where all character symbols and wilds transform into a single symbol.
  3. Free Spins: Land two regular scatters (the game logo) anywhere on the reels with one of the other scatters on reel 5, and you'll get the corresponding free spins bonus round. It starts with 8 or 10 spins, depending on which type of scatter was on reel 5 and the bonus feature active.

Ready to play? Then it's time to get in on the action and set your bets from $0.20 to $100 at any of these ranked and rated Pragmatic Play Casinos.
