Daily News: new slot at Play’n GO and Novomatic conquers Austria
Release of the Gold Volcano slot machine from Play’n GO
As planned, on July 16, Play'n GO launched the new Gold Volcano slot machine. This is an impressive slot in terms of visuals with a number of features. The developer linked all the elements with the volcanic theme very harmoniously.
Play'n GO's Gold Volcano slot machine has RTP of 96.2%, high volatility, 8 spinning reels and Cluster Pays paylines. There are free spins, a Wild symbol, a Scatter symbol and a multiplier. You can play Gold Volcano slot in automatic mode, as well as "Fast Spin" mode.
Unlike many other cascading slots, when winning combinations disappear and the top elements take their place, Gold Volcano moves up from the bottom. Everything here literally tends to the top of the volcano, and the culmination is an exciting and potentially profitable eruption.
In terms of features, it has familiar functions. There are wilds, multipliers, additional symbols, shuffle symbols, free spins, and expanding reels during the bonus round.
Novomatic has become the second most important brand in Austria
On July 1, the European Brands Institute published a list of the most important companies in Austria. The well-known developer of the gambling industry Novomatic which employs about 30,000 people in more than 70 countries took the second place. According to the Institute, the brand costs €3.545 billion.
The closest Novomatic neighbors in the top ten Austrian brands are RedBull which takes the first place out of any competition. The brand was valued at €15.107 billion. Swarovski which is only slightly inferior to Novomatic takes the third place, with an estimated value of 3.462 billion.
The Institute evaluated the 500 largest brands in Austria based on their turnover. Companies with an Austrian share of 45% or more were taken into account. The data was relevant for June 2020.
Last year Novomatic took the third place. The company attributes the improvement of its position to its strategy based on two brands. Novomatic works in the B2B industry as a gambling developer, and Admiral is a network of gaming halls and casinos, that is, the B2C sector.
