This week round-up features the latest slot release from Quickspin, launches for the likes of Inspired, iSoftBet and Betsoft Gaming, as well as another integration in Italy for Vermantia.
Playtech’s Quickspin is taking players on an epic Asian fantasy adventure with its latest slot release, Wins of Fortune.
Influenced by stories of ancient quests, the game offers players a unique re-spin on any win with the reel grid increasing for each re-spin until it reaches 5x5 reels, when a Super Respin feature is triggered.
Wins of Fortune also features Quickspin’s Achievements Engine, which has been designed to offer players a more entertaining and rewarding experience.
The Achievements Engine makes use of six unique game events, rewarding players with Quickspin tokens when free spins or other features are triggered. Achievements are set across four levels and pay out at each level, with players able to cash in their tokens in order to trigger one of the game’s bonus features, such as free spins or side games.
Players can also track their progress and claim and collect rewards on a designated page within each Quickspin slot.
“Wins of Fortune promises to be another blockbuster title, with its Asian fantasy theme sure to resonate with players and with the super re-spin mode promising big wins,” said Quickspin CEO Daniel Lindberg. “The game also features our newly-launched Achievements Engine, a ground-breaking gamification module that has already proved to be very popular with players.”

It follows the launch of the Betting Resources portal in January, featuring over 1,000 in-depth articles on betting strategy and education.
The Bet Calculator allows punters to automatically calculate the payout for any given combination of Stakes and Odds including Mutliples, while Odds Converter will convert decimal, American and fractional odds into a player's chosen odds format.
