In our first games round-up of the new year we see game launches from suppliers including NetEnt, Highlight Games and Twelve40, as well as platform integrations for Spinomenal and 1X2 Network.
500.com-owned lottery betting operator Multilotto has gone live with online casino games from NetEnt.
Having recently strengthened its platform with content from the likes of Microgaming and Yggdrasil Gaming, Multilotto Casino now features games from NetEnt’s full portfolio, with new titles set to be released every week.
NetEnt slots that have already gone live with the operator include popular titles Starburst, Gonzo's Quest, Planet of the Apes, Guns N' Roses and RedRake, as well as the supplier’s latest release Finn and The Swirly Spin.
“We are determined to make our casino offering one of the most exciting on the market,” said Multilotto chief operating officer Marcus Cordes. “For years our players have been able to enjoy outstanding bonuses and rewards and we’re delighted to be able to offer them an even wider selection of top quality games.
“NetEnt are world-leaders in their field, setting the standard for the rest of the industry and we are very proud to partner with them.”
Virtual sports specialist Highlight Games, which is 38 per cent owned by Sweden’s Cherry, has entered an agreement to integrate its flagship SOCCERBET product with Ladbrokes Coral’s Italian-facing Eurobet brand.
Launched last November, SOCCERBET combines six ten-second clips from an individual football fixture across several seasons, presenting the minute-long package as an individual game, and offering a full range of betting markets.
The game is currently undergoing extensive player-testing to optimise the full product launch and is expected to go live with the operator in mid-2018.
“SOCCERBET represents an exciting evolution of the virtual sports formula, and we are delighted to extend its reach with an operator as large and respected as Eurobet,” said Highlight Games CEO Tim Green. “Italy is a nation of football lovers, and we are certain that our unique and exciting game featuring the biggest stars and best action from Serie A will strike a chord with Eurobet players across the country.”
Eurobet’s sports book director Carlo di Maio commented: “SOCCERBET Italia is a revolutionary new video rich virtual product, and we are excited to be at the forefront of its launch in our home market. Being able to provide our customers with real action footage of their favourite Italian sides is a huge step forward, and we look forward to enjoying a rewarding relationship with Highlight Games.”

1X2 Network chief commercial officer Kevin Reid added: “We are delighted to be partnering with Digitain to provide our unique portfolio of games to such a well-respected company that’s on the rise the industry.
