The theme will be taken-up by a stellar line-up of guest Convention speakers including the Minister for Gambling, The Rt Hon Stuart Andrew MP, Kate Nicholls Chief Executive UKHospitality, Michael Dugher, CEO Betting and Gaming Council, Andrew Rhodes CEO UK Gambling Commission and Miles Baron CEO Bingo Association.
The Convention will also include a presentation from the Bank of England which will outline the latest expert insight on payments trends including what the Bank is doing to protect access to cash which is in line with current Government policy.
Bacta CEO John White who is curating content for November’s industry event believes that 2023 is one of the most significant years in the history of the trade association. He explained: “I honestly don’t think there’s been a more significant Convention in our history as a representative trade body with huge macro issues to prepare for.
“This year we’ve had the long awaited publication of the Government’s White Paper on gambling reform the outcomes of which will transform the industry; in addition bacta has undergone its own head-to-toe restructure in advance of its 50th birthday which we celebrate next year and political observers are debating whether we will have a May 2024 or an October 2024 General Election.
“The Convention comes at a perfect time to explore what will be hugely significant issues, challenges and opportunities drawing on the insight and knowledge of our invited guests. Each speaker will have their own unique take on what the future will look like for our sector with Andrew Rhodes providing the Convention keynote explaining how the Gambling Commission is preparing for the new regulatory landscape.”
November’s Convention will also be the first to take place under the newly configured bacta. “The final building block was set earlier this month with the election of six members to the new 11-person bacta National Council” stated White. “The Convention provides an opportunity for members to learn how the new bacta will be addressing the challenges and the opportunities which lie ahead.”
Gaming Corps’ sizzling Super Hot Stacks slot brings Free Spins and Bonus Guarantees
Gaming Corps is bringing back the beloved classic fruit theme with the launch of new slot game Super Hot Stacks.
Super Hot Stacks is a five-reel video slot with three symbols per reel and 15 paylines. The game gives players the chance to watch their wins multiply as the reels stack up with juicy fruits and exciting multiplier values.
The Super Hot Stacks feature can be triggered on any spin. When a symbol lands in every symbol position on a single reel, the multiplier increases by +1. This multiplier then applies to any winning combinations on that spin. The maximum multiplier in the main game is six, but can go up to 25 in the Free Spins feature where the multiplier is sticky!
The action-packed Free Spins feature will be awarded when players land three Scatter symbols; players will receive seven Free Spins and this can be re-triggered up to fifty Free Spins. If the player obtains less than 10x their total bet in the Free Spins feature, the Bonus Guarantee will be triggered, awarding additional Free Spins to continue the action.
Gaming Corps continues to cement its position as an up-and-coming games developer with this latest slot release, following a plethora of game launches this year, with successful titles such as Raging Zeus Mines, Wild Woof, Prospector’s Plinko and Luke E. Chance and the Book of Luck.
Connor Blinman, Head of Games at Gaming Corps said: “The Gaming Corps development team have been hard at work of late focusing on several game releases, and we are delighted Super Hot Stacks is now ready for players to enjoy. It is a pleasure for us to take a classic theme that players love and put our own spin on it.
“This has been a momentous year for Gaming Corps already as we continue to grow as a developer, creating diverse content remains at the forefront of our strategy, and there are more releases in the pipeline which will give players even more memorable experiences.”

Little Farm: Hold and Win is a 5×4, 25-payline slot from the iGaming distributor that delivers light-hearted entertainment, underpinned by a feature-rich gameplay, vibrant animations and a range of furry friends.

The iconic Bonus Game includes newly hatched chicks that display either cash values or the Mini, Minor or Major Jackpot symbols, while the farmer activates the Boost feature when it appears, instantly collecting all prizes shown on the board and is added to the total prize fund.
A popular feature within some of 3 Oaks Gaming’s latest hits, the Bonus Accum mechanic provides another chance to gain access to the Hold and Win Bonus Game.
Yuriy Muratov, Chief Business Development Officer at 3 Oaks Gaming, said: “Little Farm: Hold and Win brings together colourful graphics and an immersive gameplay where players need to don their straw hat to unearth big prizes.
“The Walking Wild is a great addition to this vibrant farm setting, and we’re confident this latest Hold and Win journey will prove popular with a wide audience of players.”
