A blistering experience awaits in Blueprint Gaming’s latest offering Cash Strike Hotstepper, as a host of thrilling mechanics take centre stage, including the eye-catching Hotstepper feature offering lavish cash rewards.

Stepping into a retro 3×3 grid, a feast of fruit symbols is accompanied by flaming gold coins with the title’s five pathways offering a mammoth 50,000x the original bet.

All cash symbols or fixed jackpots on reels one or three are awarded when they land alongside the sizzling Cash Strike Collect symbol on reel two.

The same winning combination will also activate the Cash Strike Bonus Game, where any coin landing in view is collected by the Cash Strike symbol on the centre reel, resetting the total free spins to three. Optimising chances for grand wins, the additional feature will continue until all spins run out.

The title’s headline Hotstepper feature is triggered when the Cash Collect symbol lands on reel two. Once activated, the Collect symbol moves down one position each round, enhancing the player’s chances of securing cash and jackpot wins on reels one and three.

Returns are also maximised through the game’s Gold Strike feature, which collects all cash or collect symbols during every spin and adds them to the flaming cash strike logo at the top of the screen. With the chance of dropping at any point during gameplay, players are guaranteed additional access to the Cash Strike Bonus Game.

Fintechs in Kazakhstan Raises Concerns Over Proposed Gambling Regulation

Published

Fintech companies in Kazakhstan are urging greater scrutiny of a proposed law intended to regulate betting transactions in the country.

The submitted legislation, currently in its final reading, would form a monopoly entity, the Unified Accounting System (UAS), the firms said in a joint press release. The UAS would be used to determine market participants, process payments, maintain a single “electronic wallet” and make settlements with clients. A critical concern is that it could charge up to 1.5% in commissions on all market transactions, within a market where regulated transactions exceed KZT1.2tn ($2.6bn) annually.

Irina Davidenko, a spokesperson for Kazakhstan’s payments industry, commented: “The proposed legislation would be a step backwards for Kazakhstan, harming competition in the country’s vital payments sector and signaling to the outside world that necessary business reform is being driven by shadowy interests, rather than what’s right for industries and consumers.”

The proposal, partly billed as a public health move against problem gambling, resembles a previous initiative, the Betting Accounting Centre (BAC). It was shelved in 2021 after a scandal involving a deputy minister who was dismissed for accepting bribes from BAC lobbyists, according to the press release.

The lack of transparency on the UAS structure and ownership as outlined in the legislation is another aspect of the change that is seen by critics as troubling.

The reintroduction of a UAS model occurred as late as the second reading of the legislation. If passed by parliament, it will become law without the comprehensive impact analysis and scrutiny typical for such significant regulatory change.

Observers argue the new regulation duplicates existing regulatory functions already managed by Kazakh state bodies and was proposed without the cooperation of the National Bank of Kazakhstan. The central bank has previously developed its own reform proposal that avoids introducing a monopolistic entity.

Opponents further contend that the regulation could cause “significant economic damage”. National Bank of Kazakhstan representatives and the payments industry have sounded alarm bells, but the issues have not been adequately addressed, the press release added.

The concerned fintech and payment companies want the legislation to be reconsidered. They are advocating for it to be sent back to the lower house of the legislature for a full regulatory impact analysis and thorough examination to ensure that it does not adversely affect industry or the economy.

Ilya Efimenko, commercial director of the payment organisation PayDala, said: “I appeal to the Senators, who need to know the true purpose of why the UAS has made a comeback in the bill.

“This is a re-emergence of the ‘Betting Accounting Center’ (BAC), a strikingly similar entity that was withdrawn before, and behind which, as the deputy from the Amanat party Elnur Beisenbayev said, are the powerful forces of ‘Old Kazakhstan.’

“Before our eyes, a monopolist, a private operator, is being created. The emergence of monopolies such as the UAS threatens the principles of a Fair Kazakhstan. Now everything is being done to break the financial system of Kazakhstan, recognized by experts as one of the best in Central Asia.”
