The Gambling Industry Monthly Review – February 2021
February 2021 has had some amazing moments happening in different gambling industry niches. While we take a look at the most memorable and talked-about events in the last 28 days, it becomes clear that the second month of 2021 has brought players all over the world some pretty exciting and highly entertaining casino games.
Let’s take a closer look at what at all the ups and downs of the iGaming industry that took place during the month of February.
Fresh February Slots
Software providers didn’t disappoint this month as well. Exciting and action-packed video slots were landing on the market pretty much every day of January and the situation was pretty much the same in February.
After a hugely successful launch of ‘San Quentin xWays’, Nolimit City has released an East Coast vs West Coast slot. Inspired by the rap and hip hop scene of the 90s, this title has fun-filled gameplay with an RTP of 96.04%, Free Spins round, and several Enhancers.
Leading iGaming developer Pragmatic Play has enriched its wide-ranging portfolio with 4 new releases – Dragon Kingdom – Eyes of Fire, Eye of The Storm, The Hand of Midas, Joker King, and Gates of Olympus. The Hand of Midas has been particularly popular among Twitch casino streamers.
Yggdrasil started its slot-spinning journey in February in Giza and, after visiting Knossos and Polynesian tropics, finished it on the 80s disco floor in Reel Desire slot. On the other hand, Relax Gaming was conquering unknown galaxies and provided players with an epic space adventure of free spins, multipliers, and modifiers in its Multiplier Odyssey release.

Gambling Regulations Worldwide
US states are continuing on the road of gambling legalization with many of them making important steps towards this goal like Governor Andy Beshear signing the legislation to finally legalize historical horserace wagering. While some are fortifying their online gaming scene the others are just at the moment when they are proposing the legal frame in which this industry should work in their state.
The European market was not completely quiet. The Austrian Ministry of Finance has declared that they are working on overhauling the current gambling regulatory framework and that they want to establish an independent gambling regulator. The Netherlands officials have decided to postpone the enforcement of the Remote Gambling Act to 1 April 2021. By doing so, they have also delayed the launch of the online market to 1 October 2021.
