This week has seen games released by OMI Gaming, Realistic Games, GameCo, Lightning Box Games, and Endorphina, as well as new content integration deals for Tom Horn Gaming and Betsoft Gaming.
UK-based casino content supplier Realistic Games has rolled out its first HTML5-only slot with the launch of Symmetry.
The five-reel, ten-win line slot features a tessellated tile theme and two bonus rounds in which players can win big prizes.
The higher-end Symmetry bonus is awarded when all five reels contain a stack of three matching symbols and they then form a symmetrical pattern. The feature boasts a huge jackpot, where players can win up to 500 times their stake.
Symmetry marks Realistic’s first HTML5-only slot release and will be available across desktop, mobile and tablet.
“Symmetry will see players looking for the perfect symmetrical combination, as well as having the opportunity of hitting the jackpot prize of 500 x their starting stake,” said Realistic Games CEO Andy Harris. “It joins a long list of quality slots that Realistic offers its partners and we’re confident our new release will prove to be yet another hit with their players.”
Stockholm-based games developer OMI has released its fifth bespoke title with the EveryMatrix-powered Nordic-facing site BuckandButler.com.
The supplier’s online scratchcard game Scratch & Win is now live exclusively at Buck & Butler, which operates under licences from Malta and Curacao.
The title features innovating math which provides varied and volatile game sessions, rich graphics, atmospheric sounds and an Apple gift cards goods feature. This offers players the option to collect or sell back the goods prize to the operator, with the collect option helping to build player loyalty.
“We are thrilled to launch another premium exclusive title together with our partners and Scratch & Win with its “Apple - gift cards” feature brings innovation to the lottery segment,” said OMI’s commercial and marketing director Tobias Lindgren.
Tropicana Atlantic City has launched two new exclusive GameCo video games at its New Jersey casino resort.
GameCo’s Nothin’ but Net and Spread-Bet Roulette are both unique to Tropicana and the first of their kind in Atlantic City.
In Nothin’ but Net, players get ready to hit the courts with a basketball-themed game developed in collaboration with Free Range Games.
With 16 shots to win big, players’ virtual skills are tested in making layups, jump shots, free throws, and half court bombs in the fast-paced game, which also includes bonus money balls.
Spread-Bet Roulette is Tropicana’s newest exclusive table game, adding a new option to the traditional roulette game. Before placing a Spread-Bet, the player must play and satisfy the roulette game minimum.
With seven side wagers to choose from, the range of the side bets is determined by the roulette display and the ball placement. Two separate wheels spin in opposite directions on the roulette display. Before the ball drops, both wheels stop and the Spread-Bet number will be determined when the ball comes to rest on the roulette wheel.
The number the ball lands on will then be added to the corresponding number on the inner wheel as it appears on the roulette display. The result will be the winning Spread-Bet number. The Spread-Bet limits are $1 to $5, while the payoffs can be as high as 400-1.

The suppliers said that the new deal will allow both companies to develop their operations, enhance their product portfolio, and integrate existing clients using already established technical connections.

Lightning Box Games
Sydney-based slot developer Lightning Box Games has launched its latest game Panda Pow!
The game is a five-reel, 25-payline slot that features the bear which is native to south central China. In the game the pandas use their martial arts skills to kick up some serious wins.
The panda symbol acts as a wild and can be used to trigger a free spins bonus round, with up to 20 free spins if the gold wild panda graces the reels.
Panda Pow! follows other recent releases from Lightning Box Games including Raging Rhino, Rainbow Riches and Zeus.
Prague-based supplier Endorphina is sticking with the Easter theme with its newest slot, Cuckoo.
Endorphina said that the game focuses on Gzhel, a Russian style of ceramics, and linked it to the delicacy of egg-painting.
Gzhel is recognised by its distinctive hand-painted blue designs on a solid white background.
“This Cuckoo slot is here to impress you with its elegance and fascinating blue designs that will surely charm you with its tradition and history,” the supplier said. “Admire its symbols of 3 hand-painted eggs, stylish cards, and original Gzhel clocks that can help you win big this Easter.”
3D slots developer Betsoft Gaming has agreed a partnership to launch its games with Costa Rican-licensed Bitcoin casino operator Rollthebit.io.
The partnership terms will allow Rollthebit to deliver Betsoft's full suite of iGaming content to their players, including the supplier’s Slots3 collection of 3D video slots and ToGo line of mobile games.
"We are thrilled to be partnering with Rollthebit at this time," said Betsoft account manager Julian Camilleri. "They are a fresh face in our business, yet they are staffed by industry veterans so we know that they will go far and achieve much success."
Rollthebit’s Keith Birdsall commented: "Betsoft's collection of games is a must-have for any operator of any size. We are as pleased with the incredible 3D video slots as with the classic collection of table games.
