This week sees new slots released by Play’n GO, World Match, and Genesis Gaming; content integration deals for Tom Horn Gaming and Intervision Gaming; a new Wheel of Fortune mobile app from GSN Games, as well as other social games from Playtrex and Design Works.
Play’n GO has announced the launch of its latest slot game, Super Flip, following a successful exclusive roll out with Unibet.
The five-reel game, simultaneously released in mobile and Flash, features wild and Super Flip scatter symbols across 20 fixed pay lines, in addition to a free spins feature.
During the free spin round, the reels are flipped – the last reel first and the first reel last – with players given the chance to win up to 90 free spins by revealing three Super Flip symbols.
The title also includes a ‘near-win’ feature that is triggered when the second reel is stacked with the same symbol. The reel locks in place as players get to re-spin the remaining reels for the chance to win big.
"Super Flip is an exciting premium title that gives players the chance to win big in a multitude of ways, and has been immensely successful with Unibet during a period of exclusivity," said Johan Tornqvist, CEO of Play’n GO.
"We’re excited to now be able to give all operators the chance to delight their players with Super Flip, which is available for both mobile and flash and comes complete with stunning graphics and sound. We’re certain players and operators alike will jump for joy with Super Flip."
Social casino developer GSN has launched a new mobile app based on the ever-popular Wheel of Fortune brand.
Wheel of Fortune Slots: The Ultimate Collection is now available on Google Play for Android devices, and features a variety of Wheel of Fortune-themed slots and authentic elements from the TV show, including the glamorous Vanna White as the in-game host.
It will soon be rolled out for iOS and the Amazon Appstore, providing players with chances to win up to $100,000 in cash prizes in daily sweepstakes.
With more slot games to be added each month, players can travel to an island paradise in Tropics, experience larger-than-life casino thrills in Vegas Edition, or spin the reels alongside the vibrant hostess in Vanna Glamour Edition.
Players can also customize their Wheel with upgradeable wedges and Boost Tags for bigger prizes, as well as benefit from unlockable slot machines, boosts, gifting and multi-level progressive jackpot rounds.
"I love that my job is to encourage contestants through a game of Wheel of Fortune, and I'm excited to bring that same enthusiasm to mobile players as the host of Wheel of Fortune Slots: The Ultimate Collection," said Vanna White. "I know that Wheel of Fortune fans, social casino players and everyone in between will enjoy this new, fresh spin on America's Game."
The app also introduces real-world prizing within the app. Players have the chance to be instantly rewarded with $5 or $100 gift cards from leading retailers or cash prizes of $5,000 or $100,000 through the Ultimate Scratcher daily sweepstakes.
"We are excited to welcome players to Wheel of Fortune Slots: The Ultimate Collection, GSN Games' new app that celebrates the immensely popular Wheel of Fortune TV show and the #1 slots brand in the world," said Stuart Lewis-Smith, senior vice president and general manager at GSN Games. "No other app combines such a wide range of authentic Wheel of Fortune themed slot machines, the elegant Vanna White as the in-game host, and the chance to enter daily sweepstakes to win real cash and prizes.
"Our players will love this brand new spin on the Wheel of Fortune experience, including the ability to upgrade and personalize their own Wheel as they progress through the game."
The Malta-based supplier has released its latest slot title, Hercules HD. The 5-reel, 3-row slot features one of the greatest ancient heroes and demi-gods.
The game sees Hercules slay the Hydra, capture the Cretan bull, bring back Cerberus and perform many other heroic deeds.
WM said that the great 3D animations of this slot narrate his labours, involving the players in his far-ranging adventures.
Hercules HD has been developed in HTML5 and includes a number of special features, including Free Spin (during which winnings are multiplied by 2) and Wild.
In addition, Hercules rewards the players by multiplying their bets in a Bonus Game which sees him spin a stone wheel.
Tom Horn Gaming/iSoftBet
Alderney-licensed iSoftBet has agreed a deal to expand its online casino platform with new content from Tom Horn Gaming.
Tom Horn’s portfolio of casino games will be made available to around 60 leading gaming operators through iSoftBet’s Game Aggregation Platform (GAP), which hosts a wide range of third-party games from more than 20 software providers, as well as proprietary content.
Ondrej Lapides, CEO of Tom Horn Gaming, said: "The partnership with iSoftBet is a key success for Tom Horn Gaming and we are extremely happy that they will be offering our full portfolio to some of the largest and most successful e-gaming operators.
Michael Probert, head of business development at iSoftBet said: "We’re very proud to be partners with Tom Horn Gaming, a company known for its customized approach and tailor-made games for every market.
"We’ll have their two unique new games, Don Juan’s Peppers and the brand new Geisha’s Fan’s, available to our main operators when they are released at the end of September. We know modern cross-platform, multi-resolution casino games like these are incredibly popular and believe they are a great addition to our Game Aggregation Platform (GAP)."
This deal marks the second high-profile partnership for Tom Horn in recent weeks following a deal with Lithuania’s TOPsport last month.
Ondrej concluded: "Our latest agreement forms part of a direct initiative within Tom Horn to develop key partnerships across the continent as we gain additional licenses in new territories."
ORYX Gaming has strengthened its slot game offering by launching new content from Intervision Gaming.
The deal sees ORYX’s clients gain access to 10 games initially, including Jester, 101 Lions, and Buffalo Run.
Intervision Gaming slots have been added to ORYX’s portfolio that now includes QuickFire, NYX, Gamomat, EGT and other leading content providers.
"Intervision Gaming is a significant addition to our burgeoning game portfolio,” said ORYX Gaming CEO Matevz Mazij. "We want to offer our customers the best gaming experience around, and in terms of slot games, the Intervision offering is the perfect partner to achieve that mission."
Unibet has added to its content portfolio with two new titles from casino games developer Genesis Gaming.
The two games, Arizona Treasure and Live Jazz, are inspired by popular land-based games and will be released exclusively by Unibet via the Relax gaming platform.
Arizona Treasure is a 5 line, 5 reel slot which takes players to a great train robbery set in the canyons of the wild west. Featuring saloon bar style playing cards, bottles of whiskey, a pistol-toting bandit and chest full of cash, the scene is completed with the sounds of shotguns loading, tolling bells and neighing horses.
Live Jazz is also a 5 reel, 5 line game but set in a late night jazz club with glasses of bourbon, street signs, trumpets, musical notes, bass players and female singers on the reels.
The free spins feature offers up to 25 free spins and up to 5 extra wild symbols. Free spins can be re-triggered giving players up to 50 free spins with 5 extra wilds. The free spins feature is triggered by landing three scattered wilds anywhere on the reels on the same spin. By choosing one of five venues players can gain up to 25 free spins.
Tel Aviv-based social gaming start-up Playtrex has launched a new freemium poker game, Wild Poker.
Wild Poker is based on Texas Hold’em but with an added layer of strategy that draws, in a very simple way, from the popularity of turn-based digital strategy games like Hearthstone.
Users can play as one of an array of colorful characters, each with its own particular strategic "power up". Players must harness their special "animal instincts" to master the game.
Wild Poker was created after over 12 months of research undertaken to better understand users’ needs and behaviour. After studying the current social poker sector, Playtrex found issues with monetization and low levels of retention and built a game that tackle these issues.
"Social gaming is booming, so we think that the timing for a fresh new take on the genre is perfect,” said Daniel Kashmir, CEO at Playtrex. "Nowadays, social poker, once the jewel of social casino gaming, is being abandoned by players because there is too much of the same out there.
"Wild Poker is a new kind of social poker game offering a different experience. Wild Poker addresses a larger market by providing an added layer of strategy which is appealing to both strategy gamers and social poker players, resulting in a high monetization and in a journey that keeps players coming back for more."

"Players can expect a wide mixture of video, mechanical, and licensed slot products with enticing mathematics and all-new features."
