Marks 16th regulated market for leading the provider
Wazdan, the leading global slot supplier, has received its Manufacturer A1 Suitability licence from the Hellenic Gaming Commission (HGC), marking its 16th certified jurisdiction.
The accreditation will see many of the supplier’s top-performing products hit the Greek market, headlined by Hold the Jackpot titles, the exciting Power of Gods™ series, including Power of Gods™: the Pantheon, and top-performing titles 9 Lions and Larry the Leprechaun.
The Greek market’s new regulation kicked in on 1st August, as suppliers look to enter one of Europe’s most coveted regulated markets.
The Hellenic Gaming Commission opened the licensing process in Greece in October 2020 after the Greek parliament passed a new gambling reform bill in 2019. The online gambling reforms were part of a wider package, called Invest in Greece, that included legislation intended to streamline environmental and planning regulations. The regulated iGaming market in Greece is officially open from August 2021.
Wazdan continues to expand its collection of regulated markets, with Greece following New Jersey and Belarus as new market entries in recent months. On September 8th, Wazdan will release another Greek-themed hit, Power of Gods™: Hades.
Andrzej Hyla, Chief Commercial Officer at Wazdan, said: “We are delighted to receive our Greek licence as we continue to focus on our expansion in regulated markets.
“We’re very proud to receive our 16th independent market certification, and we are very eager to see how our games are received in this exciting market.”

The agreement sees Grand Casino players enjoy Wazdan’s entire Hold the Jackpot collection of slots, including the latest releases Midnight in Tokyo and Fortune Reels, as well as popular hits 9 Lions and Larry the Leprechaun.

The company’s online arm, Casino Zürichsee is now able to offer five of the 15 certified games Wazdan has in the nation, which includes the popular titles Infinity HeroTM, Magic Stars 3, Lucky ReelsTM, Great Book of Magic Deluxe, and 9 TigersTM.
As the sole wholly Swiss-owned casino business in the country, Swiss Casinos has been a pioneer of the gaming scene since the 1970s. In recent years, they have succeeded in building the casino group into the strongest one in Switzerland with its online brand experiencing strong growth since its launch.
The deal marks Wazdan’s first commercial collaboration in the European state following the certification of 15 of its games in October 2020.
It is yet another milestone for the supplier, which has enjoyed numerous new market entries in the last year, including most recently New Jersey in the United States.
Andrzej Hyla, Chief Commercial Officer at Wazdan, said: “Entering a new market is always a very exciting time and we’re thrilled to launch in Switzerland together with Swiss Casinos, an operator with an exemplary reputation.

PREPARE FOR A BOUNTIFUL HOLD THE JACKPOT ADVENTURE IN WAZDAN’S FORTUNE REELS
Wazdan, the innovative global slot supplier, has rolled out its latest Asian-themed hit, Fortune Reels.
Celebrating the Chinese Year of the Ox, the immersive slot offers a staggering 46,656 ways to win while also containing Cascading Reels for extra win potential.
Filled with lucky symbols, the artfully created slot goes one step further to engage players with Wilds exploding as fireworks and a catchy soundtrack in the background. Wilds may expand towards the top of the reel in base play, while Sack symbols can also award players an extra prize collected from Bonus symbols.
Fortune Reels is the latest Wazdan hit to contain a Hold the Jackpot bonus, with 27 reels available in the provider’s most recent iteration of its popular bonus round mechanic.
There are 5 types of Bonus symbols to be collected during the Hold the Jackpot bonus round. Golden Coins award prizes of up to 10x player’s bet.
On the top reel, where only three spots exist, only Special Bonus Symbols such as a Jackpot Coins, Golden Ox Coin, Money Tree or Mystery Symbol can appear, all of which can act as modifiers.
The Golden Ox Coin accumulates all values from Golden Coins drawn on the reels below and multiplies them randomly by up to 9x, the Money Tree adds more Golden Coins to the reels, or increases their existing values, while the Jackpot Coins award one of three Jackpots – Mini, Minor or Major. Finally, the Mystery symbol can transform into any Bonus symbol.
If every single one of the 27 spots is filled by a symbol, the Grand Jackpot of 1,000x a player’s bet is awarded, as well as the cumulative wins collected from the existing Bonus symbols.
Like all Wazdan games, Fortune Reels contains Wazdan’s collection of Unique and Special features, which gives players the ability to customise gameplay to their liking.
Andrzej Hyla, Chief Commercial Officer at Wazdan, said: “Fortune Reels is an oriental thriller with huge win potential. The immersive reels, engaging gameplay and lucrative prizes all combine for one of our most exciting Hold the Jackpot slots to date and we can’t wait to see how players enjoy our latest hit!”
Wazdan explores by moonlight in feature-filled Midnight In Tokyo
Wazdan, the innovative slots supplier, is set for a brand-new claw-some Asian adventure in its latest hit Midnight in Tokyo.
The supplier’s immaculate new game is a 5-reel, 243+ ways to win escapade combining a number of the developer’s most popular features in the latest instalment in its Hold the Jackpot series, with players being able to win up to 3,000x their stake.
Two types of innovative Wild Splitters are present in the game, both of which increase the number of ways to win using Wazdan’s splitter mechanic. Wild symbols not only substitute for other symbols, but they also split the adjoining symbols – into 2 if there are two adjacent symbols or into 3 if there is one adjacent symbol. Ninja Cats slice symbols on either side of them, while Kung-Fu Cats split symbols above and below.
The Geisha Cat symbol acts as a Bonus symbol, where three of them landing on the reels will trigger the Bonus Jackpot Game. Utilising Wazdan’s Hold the Jackpot mechanic, players are transported to a 15-slot mini-grid in a 5×3 layout as they search for further Bonus and Moon symbols. Players are initially granted three re-spins, which reset every time a new symbol lands on the reels.
The Moon symbol in this round will contain a cash value when it lands, with all of these being totalled up when the round ends before being awarded to players. The Geisha Cat, on the other hand, awards Jackpots, with five symbols granting the Major Jackpot of 150x and six Bonus symbols triggering the Grand Jackpot of 1,000x player’s bet. Since Jackpots, just like cats, act independently, after hitting Major Jackpot players can still score the Grand Jackpot, and have been awarded both of these prizes, instead of getting just the highest one.
Midnight In Tokyo also contains an array of Wazdan’s customisable features that players have come to love in its titles, including adjustable volatility, speed, and the Buy Feature, allowing players to enter the Hold the Jackpot bonus round at any time.
Andrzej Hyla, Chief Commercial Officer at Wazdan, said: “Midnight in Tokyo sees our players invited to explore the landscape of one of the world’s most famous cities while its feline citizens are up to mischief.”
“With the Wild Splitters adding a unique twist to the reels and our popular Hold the Jackpot bonus round, Midnight in Tokyo is one of our most engaging titles yet.”
