The survey questioned visitors to the freebets.com site between April 6 and April 26, 2020 and found that horse racing was by far the most popular sport to bet on, with 34.5% of respondents saying they were still placing wagers on international racing.

Despite UK and Irish courses being closed as of mid-March, racing carried on in countries including Australia, the US and Sweden.

The survey also showcased the rise in prominence of Esports and virtual sports, as betters embraced these new categories. A significant 40% of players said that they have now betted on these computer-based sporting options.

Stuart Simms, XLMedia PLC Group CEO said, “The results of this survey have been particularly encouraging, illustrating how our customers have continued to enjoy betting on sports at this time.

PG Soft, a world-class digital mobile games company, has released its highly infectious video slot, Zombie Outbreak.

The game unfolds within an apocalyptic world where the undead rise on the 5 reels, featuring a layout with 4 rows on reels 1, 3, and 5, and 5 rows on reels 2 and 4.

One of the many electrifying features of Zombie Outbreak is the Expanding Wild symbol, which replaces all symbols aside from the Scatter symbol. These Wild symbols appear exclusively on reels 2 and 4,  mutating into Expanding Wild symbols with three multipliers within each symbol.

The multipliers inside the Expanding Wild symbol can range from: x1 x2 x3, x2 x3 x5, x3 x5 x12, x5 x10 x15, or x10 x15 x25. Before winning totals are paid out, the smallest multiplier value from each Expanding Wild symbol is displayed at the foot of the reels. Wins are then multiplied by the collected multiplier value.

The Expanding Wild symbol remains on the reels until the end of the spin or until all three multipliers have been collected.

Players seek out the Free Spins Feature, which is triggered with three hazardous Scatter symbols appearing on screen. Once entering Free Spins, any collected multipliers stay active until the feature’s conclusion. Players have the chance to retrigger free spins. For those hungry to enhance chances of a win, the Feature Buy button offers a direct route into the Free Spins feature.

PG Soft’s spokesperson commented: “The news of Zombie Outbreak’s release will spread fast and we expect a feeding frenzy from players thanks to its stunning gameplay. It is designed to provide an exhilarating experience with its clever features and opportunities for big wins.”
