iSoftBet, GW Games, World Match and Microgaming are among those to have launched new casino games for their operator partners this week.
UK games developer GW Games has rolled out a new slot and instant win games exclusively on Sky Vegas across mobile, tablet and desktop devices.
The supplier said that Jackpots of Goo is based on a long forgotten scientist’s lab in the middle of summer, which has jars once filled with weird experiments that have now evolved into sentient fun-filled 'Pots of Goo'.
The HTML5 slot game offers colourful cascading reels with a four stage, reel modifying, progressive Slime Trail and multiplier Wheel.
For every spin, cascade or bonus that results in a win, the trail increases by one. The Wheel feature at the top of the trail grants one spin with a chance to win x2, x3, x5 or x10 winnings from the current game.
The instant win games comprise a Match-3 front game with an 8-stage 'Goo Meter' which awards a mystery prize and carries over game to game. The Vat of Goo bonus awards a multiplier, spot prize or extra picks.
The game has a direct link across to the slot game, and features a number of the key elements, promoting familiarity to the player.
“We have worked closely with GW Games to bring Jackpots of Goo slot and instant win games onto Sky Vegas, and we anticipate an excellent performance given previous content supplied by GW Games and the performance of our on-going exclusive games offering," said Julian Beck, Sky Vegas' casino and games product manager.
GW Games' commercial director Andrew Henson added: “We continue to maintain a close working relationship with the team at Sky Vegas and have a number of exciting game releases in the pipeline."
Alderney-licensed games studio iSoftBet has unveiled a new branded slot through its deal with MGM Interactive, a subsidiary of film studio Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer.
Platoon Wild is the sequel to the popular slot game Platoon, which was based on the 1986 Academy Award-winning film of the same name.
The 30-line action-packed slot features a jackpot which is available in progressive and non-progressive versions.
The supplier said that Platoon Wild is an enhanced version of its best-performing classic mechanical slots, with maths models which have been successfully powering iSoftBet's games since 2013.
“After a fantastic response to Platoon, it was an easy decision to come up with Platoon Wild,” said Nir Elbaz, managing director of iSoftBet. “This game has a lot to offer; its theme captures the Platoon brand and comes with many opportunities to win big.”
Isle of Man-based gaming supplier Microgaming will deliver three new online and mobile games to its operator partners in August.
Karaoke Party is a 5 x 3 reel, nine payline game. Along with wild multipliers across the reels, the base game also includes a gamble feature, whereby the player has the opportunity to double or quadruple their winnings on any win. Fifteen retriggerable free spins are available when three or more scatter symbols land anywhere on the reels, and all wins during the free spins round have a 3x multiplier.
The supplier will also roll out a new lotto matching style game, Monkey Keno. Featuring a dynamic pay table that updates prizes based on bet amount and the number of tiles selected, players must attempt to match numbers which the game randomly selects.
The third game to be launched is Frozen Diamonds, Rabcat’s latest five reel, 20 fixed payline video slot. The base game is driven by falling win symbols instead of traditional reels. Symbols that make up a winning bet line detonate and trigger the Bonus Fall features, where all gaps arising from prior wins are filled with more falling symbols.
If the player scores a win during the second Bonus Fall, they are awarded up to 10 free spins, which is enriched with wild symbols and the ability to trigger additional spins.
“There’s no summer hiatus at Microgaming as we prepare to release three diverse games to our operators next month,” said Neill Whyte, head of product channels at Microgaming. “What’s more, we have a number of exciting games launching in the next couple of months, including Jungle Jim – El Dorado in September and the highly-anticipated Dragonz later in the year.”
Online casino games developer World Match has gone live with its latest slot - Viking Legend HD.
The Viking themed game is a 5-reel, 3-row slot which brings the excitement of heroic sea battles to players.
Developed in HTML5 to provide more detailed graphics and 3D animations, the slot is available on iOS and Android. It includes wild and free spins, with winnings multiplied by 3 in free spins.
Soul and Vibe
Games developer Soul and Vibe Interactive has signed a deal to launch two Virtual Reality (VR) games via a partnership with California-based studio Human Soft.
Casino Palace is designed to support real-money or bitcoin transactions and promote social interaction between players. It will be developed for VR devices including HTC Vive, Samsung Gear VR, Oculus Rift, and Google Cardboard, as well as non VR devices on iOS and android.
These ‘companion apps’ will provide a mix of interactive and immersive experiences for the player and unlock unique content in the Boxie game, the developer explained.
"The VR market is another means through which the company can generate a recurring release calendar and further expand operations" said Soul and Vibe's CEO and president Peter Anthony Chiodo. "The VR platform will help further transition Soul and Vibe into a very robust content company with a cross section of highly valuable IP."
Human Soft president and CEO Gabor Kadas added: "We are very excited to have partnered with Soul and Vibe to publish Casino Palace and Boxie. We believe there is great potential in partnering with Soul and Vibe as the synergy created by this publishing agreement will benefit both companies long term."

Mobile gaming operator LeoVegas has signed a deal to integrate Felt Gaming’s full suite of proprietary table games into its offering.
Felt’s offering includes three poker games, blackjack side bet games such as Perfect Pairs, 21+3 and Lucky Lucky, as well as the supplier’s unique Double Ball Roulette title.
All the games are built in HTML5 and will be available across multiple channels and devices.
“There is a real demand for innovative and stimulating table game content that provides multiple betting opportunities across different devices, attracts new players, and increases existing player value,” said Felt Gaming CEO John Parsonage. “LeoVegas shares the same view, believing these games positively complement their existing game portfolio and provide them with an all-round enhanced casino offering.
“Being mobile-focused, they see the benefit of providing a suite of games that have each earned their spurs in the highly-competitive and challenging bricks and mortar environment, but are now perfectly tailored to its use.”
Bosnia and Herzegovina-based software provider NSoft has signed a content distribution deal with iSoftBet, which will see games from both suppliers made available on each other’s platforms.
NSoft said that the partnership was a “significant milestone” in its growth plan, with iSoftBet integrating its most popular draw-based game, Lucky Six, into its Game Aggregation Platform (GAP).
iSoftBet’s online and mobile content will also be added to NSoft’s SEVEN platform, which has so far been integrated with Oryx Gaming and Blue Ocean Gaming, and includes titles from NetEnt, Microgaming and Gameart.
“This deal will help NSoft to expand in UK, Italy, Spain, Denmark and Portugal, with the aid of iSoftBet's unique portfolio of certified games meeting regulatory obligations of industry standards,” said NSoft.
“This collaboration is a win-win for both organisations. iSoftBet will be able to showcase its unique portfolio of games in the Eastern Europe and African market through integration into NSoft's SEVEN Platform, while NSoft is getting a tremendous opportunity to enter the Western European market.”
Gaming platform provider BetConstruct has signed a deal to integrate Spigo’s entire online casino games portfolio.
Spigo produces inhouse slots and games such as Freecell, 7 Solitaire, Backgammon, Yatzy and newest title Diamonds, which will be available to operators using BetConstruct’s platform.
“It’s fantastic for us to sign with such an esteemed and professional partner as BetConstruct,” said Spigo CEO Kasper Kau. “Their innovative platform will suit our products perfectly, and we cannot wait to see their clients utilising our unique portfolio of games.”
BetConstruct CEO Vahe Baloulian added: “Spigo’s games will enrich BetConstruct’s platform with unique creative content which I believe will prove very popular with our partners and their players.”
