news in brief may 2NeoGames is offering a new real-time instant win scratch card to its lottery customers. “Quick Play” is a new fast-paced offering based on classic quick-draw games that will post new winning numbers every 60 seconds. Six numbers are drawn from a possible 36 and players have a chance to win anything up to £200,000. The game is available to all NeoGames’ national lottery partners and can be personalized so each lottery can choose when draws take place.

888.com is launching a video slot game based on the popular film “Clash of the Titans”. Its launch coincides with the release of the sequel “Wrath of the Titans” and will be exclusively available in the 888casino slots arena. The slot is an “action packed tribute” to the struggles experienced by those in the film itself and is fully based on the 2010 film…and yes that does mean it doesn’t include anything from the latest release. There is nothing like last year’s model after all, as long as you brand it as retro.

Intralot is attempting to bridge the gap between online and land-based lotteries with the introduction of near field communication (NFC) technology. The lottery specialists are looking to roll out “Tap’n’Play” to customers so that they can play lottery games with a single tap of their phone onto a certain pad. It will reduce the need for the lottery industry to use so much paper and is likely to appeal to a younger more tech facing demographic.

FutureLogic is another firm looking to tap into the mobile market with the release of the PromoNet Solution v2.0. It means operators can offer mobile and “networkless” issuance and a new Player Rewards model. It aims to make it easier for operators to alter slots offerings and also means that operators can issue and redeem coupons using a tablet or smartphone.
