USA – Free-to-play casino games developer and publisher of digital games including Monopoly Slots and Bingo Showdown that was previously a social division of Scientific Games; SciPlay, has announced that it has teamed up with personal trainer; Craig Ramsay, to help boost people’s mood and health during the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
Craig Ramsay, who has endorsements from Colin Farrell and Sharon Osbourne, is an internationally known personal trainer and fitness expert, who is running a ‘Fitness & Slots YouTube channel’ to ‘boost viewers’ health and mood’ and inspire them in to living a ‘healthy lifestyle despite the challenging circumstances’. Workouts on the channel combine exercise techniques with mobile casino games from SciPlay.
Craig Ramsay said:
“I’m no rookie, I’ve been playing Jackpot Party, Bingo Showdown, 88 Fortunes and other SciPlay games for years, while developing exercise programs that complement the games. I’m grateful that this form of exercise and movement is gathering momentum, helping people through these challenging times and positively changing peoples’ relationship with their body, health and wellness.”
The YouTube channel will feature an exercise series based on SciPlay’s gaming hits. Viewers will learn all about Ramsay’s “Fitness and Slots” philosophy, participate in weekly challenges, and get inspired to incorporate gamified workouts into their day-to-day schedule and live healthier lifestyles.
“Exercising is always important, but recent events and restrictions have made our society even more stressed than before, and people all around the world have difficulty maintaining a normal daily routine that includes movement. That stress has a negative effect on us, and physical movement has the power to make us feel de-stressed and calm. I’ve made it my passion to motivate people and support them through challenges and there is no better, more exciting and entertaining way than to invite people to gamify their workouts.
This exciting combo has inspired countless clients, friends and family members of mine to move their bodies, feel physically and mentally great and positively impact their health and wellness, ALL by simply continuing to play their favourite games, while consciously moving their bodies by walking, stretching, performing body weight exercises and more.”
Dafna Ben Onn of SciPlay also said:
“We’re proud to partner with Craig because we believe in the message of Fitness & Slots and in its ability to improve both the exercising and gaming experience. This positive influence is crucial in our current circumstances and can make a real difference in people’s life while they are quarantined at home and dealing with a lack of movement. We believe that it can contribute not only to our players’ physical health, but also to their emotional state. We have an opportunity to help people relax and provide them with some much-needed fun.”
SciPlay, previously the Social division within the global gaming leader Scientific Games, became an independent company in 2019, who’s portfolio includes engaging, interactive and smart mobile games that constantly evolve based on user feedback and behaviour.
