‘The most important period for the UK industry since the introduction of the 2005 Gaming Act’ is how Bacta National President John Bollom described the backdrop to the 2023 Bacta Convention which is taking place Wednesday 22nd November at London’s County Hall.

Providing an insight to what he believes will be the key topics of the day, John Bollom noted: “The Convention will cover what are the most important changes facing Bacta members including issues that will have a long-term impact on their businesses.”

“The Gambling Review and subsequent consultations cover key issues in particular cashless payments, changes to the 80:20 rule and restrictions on Cat D cash pay-out fruit machines.

“On top of that we have the Statutory Levy proposals, the introduction of an industry Ombudsman, a review of technical standards and our own request for an increase in stakes and prizes.

“Outside of the White Paper we have the introduction of a B2B tariff with PRS/PPL and the impact of illegally operated streaming services on our music operator members.”

The first Convention to take place following the restructure of the UK trade association, John Bollom will use his Convention address to update members on the progress that’s been made. He confirmed: “I am pleased with changes to our Governance which I believe puts us in a much better position to respond to these important issues as they arise and to drive the industry forward with policies that benefit all.

“These discussions and reports to Convention are of great importance to every Bacta member and the input and opinions of the membership are vital in helping to shape a future looking organisation. I hope members will be able to find the time to be a part of this really important annual event.”

Building on the success of its predecessor, Big Big Fishing Fortune introduces innovative features that elevate the gaming experience.

In the Big Big Fishing Fortune Bonus, players enjoy unlimited free spins until the Big Fish Value is caught. The thrill continues as any “Big Fish” symbol that lands in view locks in place until a Fisherman symbol lands. Each appearance of the Fisherman symbol increases the excitement as it collects the values of all visible fish symbols, and if multiple fishermen appear, the fish values are awarded multiple times.

Additionally, when upgrade symbols land, they light up spots on the trail above the reels. Completing sections of this trail upgrades the Big Fish to higher values, with all Big Fish symbols on the screen updating to these new values, creating a thrilling chase for greater rewards.

Big Big Fishing Fortune continues to deliver excitement with its Fortune Spins feature, designed to maximize winning potential. Fortune Spins feature only fish, bonus symbols, fishermen, and blanks on the reels, allowing for a higher frequency of mixed fish wins and additional bonuses.

Players also can gamble their winnings using two distinct wheels. The left wheel can increase winnings by up to 10x, while the right wheel provides a chance to win the Big Big Fishing Fortune Bonus.

Richard Terry, UK Market Product Director at Inspired Entertainment, said: “Big Big Fishing Fortune offers an exhilarating combination of enhanced features and new mechanics, promising a rewarding and entertaining experience for all players.”

Today, global gaming and esports brand GIANTX (GX) is proud to announce the acquisition of iTero Gaming, a UK start-up specialising in AI coaching solutions for competitive gamers. The acquisition represents a significant milestone for the gaming and technology industry, highlighting the growing integration of AI in esports.

With a focus on the title League of Legends, the multi-million deal represents the company’s ongoing commitment to the global esports community through delivering precise, individualised coaching for gamers looking to enhance their competitive performance. Integrating iTero’s innovative AI technology will also enable GIANTX to provide tailored training and strategic insights to its global fanbase. Founder of iTero Gaming, Jack Joseph Williams, has also become the esports organisation’s new Head of Gaming Technology following the acquisition.

The iTero Gaming League of Legends coaching app has amassed nearly a quarter million installs in less than two years, harnessing AI to pinpoint player weaknesses and optimise pre-game setup. Analysing millions of games every patch, their state-of-the-art AI assesses which champions from your pool would excel in team drafts, and suggests enemy bans, optimal runes, and item builds.

The acquisition represents a significant milestone for the gaming and technology industry, highlighting the growing integration of AI in esports. iTero Gaming’s AI coaching offers a glimpse into the transformative potential of AI across the broader tech landscape, demonstrating how traditional coaching on classic esports titles such as League of Legends can be transformed. This acquisition not only sets a new benchmark for competitive training but also paves the way for future innovations in AI-driven performance enhancement and strategic development in gaming and esports.

Founder of iTero Gaming, Jack J, is a former financial analyst at HSBC who channelled his passion for AI into developing predictive models for esports competition outcomes in his spare time. This endeavour evolved into iTero Gaming, where he began offering decision-making tools for League of Legends players. iTero Gaming launched its app in September 2022, quickly amassing over 10,000 installs, along with glowing 5-star reviews and strong user retention rates. This success validated iTero Gaming’s product-market fit and potential to disrupt the gaming industry with the innovative use of AI.

GIANTX (GX) was formed from the amalgamation of London-based Excel Esports and Malaga-based Giants Esports last year. This strategic merger has consolidated the esports organisation’s position as a dominant force in global esports, with headquarters in London and Malaga, alongside a state-of-the-art performance centre in Berlin. This union has since supported GIANTX’s goals for global expansion, solidifying its status as a leading team across multiple competitive titles, supported by an unparalleled fan base.

Tim Reichert, Co-CEO of GIANTX, said: “We are thrilled to announce our acquisition of iTero Gaming to help elevate player performance to new heights! This marks a pivotal moment in GIANTX’s ongoing commitment to innovation and excellence in esports, empowering players worldwide to achieve their competitive best.

The potential to enhance gameplay and provide tailored insights is enormous, and I can’t wait to see the positive impact it will have on the gaming community”

Jack J, Founder of iTero Gaming emphasises: “I’m excited to be joining the GIANTX team. EXCEL ESPORTS was the first esports team I became a fan of and I’ve followed their journey over the last few years. I believe and have always believed that data and AI have the potential to seriously disrupt the status quo of esports, whether that’s finding undervalued players or identifying strategies outside of the standard meta. I think esports is ready for the future and I’m really looking forward to what comes next working alongside GIANTX.”
