This week sees new games released by Greentube, Magnet Gaming and Realistic Games, and platform integrations for the likes of Golden Race, ReelNRG, Blueprint and Leander Games.
Novomatic's interactive division Greentube has launched its latest slot for its B2B partners with the release of Queen Cleopatra.
Based on the renowned queen of ancient Egypt, a powerful ruler who enchanted both Julius Caesar and Mark Antony with her mystical beauty, the game is a five-reel, ten-win-line slot.
In the game, players must decipher the hieroglyphs with a magical book and open the gates to the queen's beautiful treasure chambers. The aim of Queen Cleopatra is to land five matching symbols on one of up to ten win lines. The win lines run along the reel set from left to right.
The book is the scatter symbol and triggers ten free games if it appears three, four or five times in any reel position. It also acts as a wild symbol that substitutes for all other symbols in the game. During the free games, a random symbol transforms into a special symbol that extends to all three positions on its reel. This special symbol also pays out even when it appears in positions which are not adjacent.
EveryMatrix / Golden Race
iGaming software provider EveryMatrix has signed an agreement with virtual sports provider Golden Race to add its content to the supplier’s CasinoEngine platform.
EveryMatrix said that the virtual gaming content offered by Malta-based Golden Race came with a “high emphasis on realistic sport events while reproducing popular games at a superior level of graphic excellence.”
“We believe Golden Race will enhance and enlarge our business prospects by attracting more and more operators who are looking for top-class virtual sports content,” said EveryMatrix CEO Ebbe Groes. “There is a growing demand for this type of entertainment in the online gaming industry and we are constantly looking for excellent providers of virtual sports betting products.”
Golden Race CEO Martin Wachter added: “Our partnership with EveryMatrix is an exciting opportunity to deliver our content to an ever-growing number of operators. We are determined to make a buzz in the industry and take the casino revolution to a whole new level.”
Danish casino games developer Magnet Gaming is getting into the Halloween spirit with its latest slot, Haunted House.
The game is an eerie three-reel slot featuring two progressive jackpots and four terrifying bonus games. It features spooky, cutting-edge sounds and graphics, and takes players into the Haunted Houses’ halls with the white ghost lady and her skeleton dog.
“It’s important for us to offer the newest and freshest slots on the market - and Haunted House is a great example,” said Thomas Nielsen, head of game licensing at Magnet Gaming. “It may look a scary proposition, but we are sure players will be lured to this spooky slot in the search for progressive jackpots and bonus rounds.”
Magnet’s slots portfolio includes leading titles such as Fish Tank, Inspector, and Gold Rush, with more games to be launched later this year.
Online slots provider Habanero has agreed a deal to supply Vulkanvegas.com with its portfolio of casino games.
It includes releases Rolling Roger, Scruffy Scallywags, and The Dead Escape, which will be made available to customers of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) facing brand following an integration.
“We’re delighted to have signed-up with Vulkanvegas.com and are very hopeful that it will be a fruitful partnership for both parties,” said Daniel Long, head of sales at Habanero. “Our slots are popular with players in markets all over the world now, and I’m sure theirs will enjoy both our proven performers and the new content we have in production too.”
A spokesman for the operator said the company was excited about getting Habanero’s games onboard.
“It is very important to provide varied themes and maths models, and there is great depth and breadth in Habanero’s content that gives us great options,” the spokesman said.
UK-based casino games developer Realistic Games has released two new instant win games, Bully4U and Over the Rainbow.
The new titles, which play in the style of a scratch card, are pull tab versions of two of the supplier’s existing slots.
The game reveal is a simple ‘pull tab’ mechanism in which the player can swipe with a finger, drag with a mouse, or simply press the start button to play.
“Our instant win games have been very popular with partners and players alike and we’re delighted to offer even more choice with these two additional titles,” said Robert Lee, senior commercial manager at Realistic Games. “They are an accessible game type that is extremely simple to understand and play, and they appeal as much to a bingo player, as they do to a sportsbook customer.
“By releasing games that are based on our existing slots, we are looking to offer players a great experience across all product verticals.”
The two new games join Sunset Reels, Shore Thing, Snakes & Ladders and Go Wild on Safari in Realistic’s growing instant win portfolio.
London-based casino game developer ReelNRG has signed an agreement to integrate its growing portfolio of content with operator BetVictor.
The games will be launched via platform provider GAMEIOM, and include titles such as Goddess of Asia and Shanghai Respin.
The two games will go live in Asia before being rolled out across the UK and Europe later this year, with scope to expand and offer more ReelNRG titles in future.
“We are really excited to have signed a deal to integrate our leading slot titles with an operator as large and respected as BetVictor,” said Calvin Kent, co-founder and CEO of ReelNRG. “This partnership underlines the progress we have made and our commitment to ongoing expansion across the globe.
“Delivering a unique and immersive online casino experience is a priority for ReelNRG, and we look forward to working closely with BetVictor as we continue to grow our reach.”
Leander Games has agreed a deal to supply online casino operator Videoslots.com with its gaming content.
The initial 12 slots, including popular titles such as Fruity 7’s, Wild Jane and Codex, will be distributed through Leander’s LeGa remote gaming server, which provides both in-house and third-party games, with accompanying bonuses and language provisions.
The agreement sees Videoslots further expand its extensive range of content, with nearly 2,300 games currently live on its site, which will added to with more Leander titles in the coming months.
“This additional content from Leander will greatly improve our already impressive range of slots,” said Daniel Hansen, head of games at Videoslots. “We look forward to delivering more of their first-rate titles to our customers in the coming months.
“We’re very ambitious about what we can offer our players to take the industry forward, and it’s great to work with a company that shares our outlook.”
Leander Games’ chief executive Steven Matsell said: “We’re thrilled with the deal. Videoslots continue to innovate in the online slots sector, and I’m sure their players will love our engaging games.
“We share a similar philosophy on gaming: that the customer deserves more from their experience. Suppliers and operators must therefore work together to provide them with an improved service, and this partnership will give them that.”
Merkur Gaming / Reel Time Gaming
Gauselmann’s UK-based game studio Blueprint Gaming has significantly expanded its platform by adding a suite of games from another Gauselmann division, Merkur Gaming, and Australia’s Reel Time Gaming (RTG).
The games include Blazing Star, Double Triple Chance, Eye of Horus and Fishin’ Frenzy, which have performed well in the European land-based gaming market.
The new content will enable Blueprint Gaming to diversify its product portfolio to target new markets which draw on the success of Merkur Gaming and Reel Time Gaming’s content in the German, Netherlands, Spanish and Eastern European land-based markets.
“We’re excited to now offer Merkur and RTG’s top performing games via the Blueprint Gaming RGS,” said Matt Cole, managing director of Blueprint Gaming. “The game style will complement our existing portfolio of feature rich slots and further strengthens our performance across a broad range of markets.”
Betsoft has formed a partnership with new Asian-facing operator HDFBET, which operates primarily in the Chinese, Singaporean and Malaysian gaming markets.
HDFBET will be taking on Betsoft’s full suite of iGaming content, including its Slots3 collection of 3D video slots, as well as classic table games.
“We are pleased to sign this partnership with HDFBET,” said Joya Zhang, business account and sales manager at Betsoft. “HDFBET is committed to great performance and quality customer service, and these are key to building a reputation for this up-and-coming operator.

Playtech has announced that more than £1m has been paid out in jackpot prizes since the launch of its omni-channel Age of the Gods Live Roulette game two weeks ago.
This includes a recent £0.6m mobile win for a player at Mansion-owned Casino.com, who hit the big time by unlocking the Ultimate Power Jackpot - the highest tier in the four-tier mystery jackpot that links both the Live Roulette product and all Playtech’s Age of the Gods slot games.
“We continue to drive innovation and our new Age of the Gods Live roulette product is testament to that with the product becoming an instant success,” said Playtech’s chief operating officer Shimon Akad. “We’re thrilled to see such a big win and we will undoubtedly see even more in the days, weeks, and months to come due to the unique and industry-leading Omni-channel Playtech ONE progressive jackpot network we have across both Live and Casino.”
The Live product is the first of many Playtech ONE experience games that will feature jackpot functionality, and one in a whole suite of Playtech products that uses the Age of the Gods brand, including RNG Roulette, and retail and online slot games.
“Here at Casino.com we love making dreams come true – so seeing one our players hit such a huge jackpot is incredible,” said Mansion’s chief operating officer and managing director Shelly Suter-Hadad.
