Many industries, especially in the food and beverage industry, have experienced a rapid increase in their production costs. The most practical alternative chosen by several brands is to turn to specialty packaging equipment for their production line and extend product shelf life.

There are themes in art one cannot but run across. Unrequited love, the tragedy of loss, the nature of the human condition. And then there is the goddamned lightsaber, whizzing away at you from every screen whenever a new Star Wars film is due.


Let’s be honest — every creative work requires rehashing of old ideas to a certain degree. The broader entertainment industry cannot but recast archetypes, themes, and design solutions, to varying degrees of success.

Video and, believe it or not, slot games are much the same. As gaming technologies advance, game designers are slowly but surely running out of ideas. Seeing how the two industries have gradually begun to overlap (loot boxes, anyone?), we’ve decided to dedicate a lengthy article to their creative influences, or lack thereof.

  • Once seen as the staple of the northern working men's club and cigarette smoking pensioners, bingo is now attracting a younger, trendier audience.
  • The number of bingo halls in the UK has fluctuated wildly in recent years, whilst new online bingo sites emerge on an almost weekly basis
  • Modern marketing methods and improving technology have been cited as the reasons behind bingo’s revival

If you had approached one of the most reputable PR agencies in the world 20 years ago and asked them to help rebrand bingo and market it to a younger audience, you would have been laughed out of the building.

Bingo’s long-running affiliation with those of pensionable age was so far ingrained that it seemed that the game would never reach out to a younger demographic. Yet, in 2019 it has and is now one of the fastest-growing markets within the gambling industry as a whole....

The modern retail landscape is rife with opportunity while, at the same time, is throwing up many challenges. As we’re seeing an increasing shift towards to an omni-channel platform, customer demand has been on the rise and the level of competition in retail is high. To streamline the functions of a retail outlet, retails are forced to emphasise replenishment and smooth deliveries to provide customers with a satisfying experience. For those companies that haven’t kept up to date with what’s going on in retail and are failing to meet their market’s expectations, it could lead to a shrinking number of customers, who are instead trusting the World Wide Web to meet their needs. If these retail companies are looking to boost profits, they need to do anything they can to improve the customer experience. To keep their customer base, they will need to streamline operations and provide innovative solutions. Here is where retail printers can come into play....

Even though you don’t always notice the companies’ logos on websites, it’s still one of the essential branding aspects. Back then. You’d have to pay a professional artist or illustrator, have them create dozens of manual sketches, approve of the final vision, and only then bring it to your website.

Lately, the graphics design has been moving at an incredible pace. With tools like Wix logos and Canva, making a logo for your business in a matter of seconds has never been easier. Now, logo creation is not about describing how to do it, but rather, what to depict. Technical means are accessible these days - you need to make sure you have an idea.

Why invest in the website’s logo?

Even if you use a free service, time is still a valuable resource, and you can spend it on multiple things, rather than logo design. So why that? Well, the website can hardly exist without a logo - that’s already a reason enough. Open any other tab on your browser right now and look at the top right...

The popularity of online casinos is on the rise thanks to a range of factors, including accessibility due to internet connectivity. Moreover, unlike in the classic brick and mortar casino setting, most online gamers aren’t always in it to win. Some people just play online casino games for the fun of it to blow off some steam after a long day.


It’s no wonder why online gaming platforms which host slot machines and online casino table games typically have free to play modes. Thus, you don’t even have to spend money if you don’t want to. Either way, whether you want to play real money games or just to have fun, there are games which have been garnering more popularity particularly since the dawn of online casinos. In case you were wondering, here are the casino games that can be called the most popular.

The practice of gambling is mostly centred on the provision of entertainment with the accompaniment of winnings. The element of chance is constant in all the games that are offered in gaming sites, which means winnings can hardly be predicted. This lack of forecast acts as one of the most exciting factors about casino games. The use of skills to win is minimal, and in some games, they cannot be applied at all. Even so, it does not mean that some practices cannot be used to ensure that chances of winning that come by are exploited to the fullest. Below we delve into seven strategies that can be used in casinos to maximise on the experience.


1. Claim Bonuses

Bonuses and promotions have grown to garner as much importance in online casinos as games have. Incentives are used as a way to get gamblers to not only look at the services but also indulge in them using real money. The offers are usually restricted...

The incredible rise of professional esports competitions has led to players from all over the world taking part. Yet, it is fair to say that not everyone has access to the same internet speed and response times.

The good news is that there are ways around problems such as ping and latency issues. To see how this works, we can look at the effective ways that pro players in Australia have dealt with it.


What is the Issue?

Latency is a huge issue for online gamers. This is the time that it takes for information to go from your PC or mobile device to the game server and back again. It is measured as a ping rate that is shown in milliseconds. Therefore, the ping figure shown on a device is the number of milliseconds that it takes for the device to respond to the game server.

If you have high latency, then the game will tend to lag. This is generally...
