Developer of innovative jackpot games gets green light to launch its content in the UK market, with its debut early next year

HITSqwad, an innovative new game studio on a mission to become a leading provider of jackpot games, has been awarded a Remote Gambling Software License by the UK Gambling Commission, enabling it to make its online games available to operators in the UK market.

Securing this license is part of wider plans to launch its cutting edge jackpot games in the major regulated markets around the world, with the first titles set to be released to players in the UK via Playzido early next year.

HITSqwad is run by a team of experienced industry experts who have identified a market gap for flexible and customizable jackpot games that are fully compliant with legal requirements in each of the jurisdictions that the operator partners want to target.

The provider develops a series of jackpot themes, each of which has a family of associated games. This ensures that his portfolio is varied, while also allowing operators to identify the themes and brands their players are engaged in and then add more titles.

Each title is developed with a mobile-first approach, ensuring unparalleled player engagement by providing a range of exciting features to trigger each jackpot.

Charl Geiser, CEO of HITSqwad, said: “Securing our UK Gambling Commission license is a milestone for HITSqwad. Not only is it our first major license, but it also allows us to launch our content on one of the world’s largest online gambling markets.

“Our strategy going forward is now to obtain additional licenses in other major regulated markets with the aim of giving as many operators and their customers as possible access to our innovative and exciting jackpot games.

“Our games and platform are built to be flexible and adaptable, making it easy for us to ensure they comply with the rules and regulations in each of the markets we target. The UK is an important market for us and the wider industry, and we are delighted to have been given the green light to enter the fray.”

Facebook publishes filed content transparency report after being criticized for lack of transparency

Facebook Tests Give Users More Control Over News Feed Content

Facebook has a report (.pdf) leaves Saturday about the most viewed posts in the first quarter of 2021 that it reportedly had initially shelved for making the company look bad.

First reported by the New York Times, who obtained a copy of the Q1 report before Facebook released it, the most viewed link on Facebook between January and March this year was a since-updated news story suggesting the death of a Florida doctor may have been linked to the COVID-19 -vaccine.

Facebook Policy Communications Manager Andy Stone tweeted saturday that the criticism Facebook received for not releasing the report was “not unfair”, but tried to unravel the complexities of how it handled that most viewed link:

“News channels wrote about the late doctor in South Florida. When the coroner released a cause of death, the Chicago Tribune added an update to the original story; NY Times not. Would it have been good to delete the Times story because it was COVID misinfo?” Stone tweeted. “Of course not. Nobody is suggesting this and neither am I. But it does illustrate how difficult it is to define misinformation.”

Stone said Facebook withheld the January-March report “because there were major fixes to the system we wanted to make.” He didn’t elaborate on what those solutions were, but tweeted a link to the Q1 report.

What Facebook released on August 18 was a report that the most viewed content in the public news feed from April to June, the second quarter. It paints a rosier picture of the company; the most viewed post in the second quarter was a word puzzle that invited users to choose the first three words they saw. The second most viewed Facebook post between April and June asked users over 30 to post a photo of themselves looking young. The most viewed domains were YouTube, UNICEF, Spotify and CBS News. In the top ten most viewed links on Facebook in the second quarter were a gif of kittens, and a UNICEF response page to India’s COVID-19 crisis.

It’s not entirely clear why Facebook decided to release these popular content reports in the first place, but criticism of the platform’s handling of misleading COVID-19 information has grown in recent weeks. The Biden administration has urged Facebook and other social media platforms to better deal with misleading or false information about COVID-19 vaccines on their sites.

Another possible motivation for Facebook’s new “transparency” reports is likely the work of New York Times tech columnist Kevin Roose who started using Facebook’s content analytics platform last year CrowdTangle to compile and publish daily lists from top-performing US Facebook pages, lists often devoted to former President Trump, and right-wing pundits such as Ben Shapiro and Dan Bongino. The lists were reportedly a source of irritation for Facebook.

Facebook did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Sunday morning. You can read the full Q1 content transparency report below.
