This week we showcase the latest slots from Oryx Gaming and Endorphina, new products for PKR and Ikibu, and a new integration for Vermantia.

Oryx Gaming

Gaming platform and content provider Oryx Gaming is marking the festive season with the launch of two new slots, Fairytale Forest and Golden 7 Christmas.

Fairytale Forest invites players on an enchanting journey packed full of mystical creatures. There are free spins that can be multiplied by a maximum of 10x and an engaging bonus game. Players can then use the unique re-pick feature to enjoy two opportunities to change their mind and increase the chance of winning the main prize.

Oryx said that the game was cast from its Flash version and has been optimised to ensure a faster game flow, similar to recent release Anaconda Eye Rapids.

Oryx’s other game launch is Golden 7 Christmas, a festive version of its popular Golden 7 Classic game. Like the original, the game is played on a 5 x 3 matrix, with five paylines and one scatter symbol.

Both of the titles are available in HTML5 for mobile and desktop.

“The HTML releases of Fairytale Forest, Golden 7 Christmas and Anaconda Eye Rapids are great Christmas gifts for our clients and a perfect way to sign off on a prosperous year,” said Oryx Gaming CEO Matevz Mazij.


Malta-licensed operator Ikibu Casino has expanded its offering with the launch of Ikibu Christmas Races.

Ikibu is a newly formed island that takes players into a new world of excitement, challenges and fun. Players must travel through the Island of Ikibu, passing through villages, meeting the indigenous population of Iki’s and harvesting seeds as they progress.

The new game sees races run hourly, daily, weekly and monthly, allowing players to join races, compete and earn up to 3m seeds throughout the Christmas season.

With a countdown timer and a set amount of spins, players need to get the biggest wins in order to move up the leaderboard.

“With the launch of races the playing experience in Ikibu will be taken to a whole new level, ensuring that we continue to offer our players an online experience like never before. Ikibu is now more than even a strategy casino,” said Ikibu CEO Rafael Ríos.


Online gaming operator PKR continues to expand into new verticals with the launch of Kiron Interactive-powered virtual sports games.

Having recently launched a live casino, the 3D poker operator now offers players access to virtual horse racing, greyhound racing, football and four other virtual sports games from Kiron.

The company said that the addition of virtual sports takes the brand one step closer to its strategic vision of becoming both a multi-product gaming portal and poker technology provider.

“We believe in quality products that offer great entertainment,” said PKR CEO Chris Welch. “With realistic graphics and nonstop action, virtual sports sits well alongside our 3D poker software.

“Many of our poker players like a bet, so we hope they’ll enjoy these new games in between hands. We look forward to PKR Virtual Sports adding to already record casino revenues this year.”

PKR also launched Microgaming’s Tarzan slot earlier this month and its ’36 Days of Christmas’ casino promotion.

Vermantia/MOHIO Gaming

Greek games developer Vermantia has expanded its virtual games portfolio with a new partnership with Austria’s MOHIO Gaming.

Integrated via its CONNECT platform, Vermantia’s clients will have access to MOHIO’s horse racing and greyhound racing games which are based on pre-recorded real races, as well as other games such as Live Keno, Soccer Bet League, Street Racer, and Darts Bet.

The agreement also allows MOHIO to promote Vermantia games to its own customer base.

“We are excited with our agreement with Vermantia that meets both our goal to reach wider markets, like those served by Vermantia, and our quest for high quality virtual games to complement our own offering to our customers,” said MOHIO Gaming CEO Andrej Machanets. “We therefore believe that the agreement will soon spawn new projects for both our companies.”

Vermantia’s chief product officer Yiannis Gangas commented: “With our agreement with MOHIO Gaming, we are adding market-proven pre-recorded games to our offering in line with our strategy to provide our customers with the widest choice of virtual games in the marketplace.

“We are very glad that through this partnership, also our own games, such as the industry’s first Virtual Baseball game, will be made available to MOHIO’s customers.”


Prague-based casino games developer Endorphina has partnered EveryMatrix to add its games to the supplier’s CasinoEngine platform.

Endorphina’s full portfolio of HD games will be available via EveryMatrix, including its latest release Twerk. Jetbull will be the first operator to take on Endorphina’s slot games.

“Here at EveryMatrix we are always looking for new and interesting content, that's why we are delighted to add the thrilling slots games from Endorphina to our product portfolio,” said EveryMatrix CEO Ebbe Groes. “This partnership will surely increase our casino platform's appeal, while delivering the perspective of a better gaming experience to operators that look for an impressive suite of online casino games.”

EveryMatrix’s CasinoEngine platform has been integrated with nearly 40 game developers, with close to 4,000 games available to operator partners.

“We are pleased to announce that we started our cooperation with a well-established big industry player, EveryMatrix,” said Jan Urbanec, VP of sales at Endorphina. “As a start-up, we used to admire companies like this and I am proud to say that now we became their business partners.

“I believe that our content will find its way to EveryMatrix's customers and that Endorphina will have an outstanding reputation and a highly profitable relationship with them.”

Endorphina also announced this week the launch of its latest slot game, Voodoo.

The supplier described the game as a “dark and intense” experience, with the game inspired by the spiritual West African religion.

Players will be immersed in a gloomy atmosphere, with enchanting sounds and characters including sorcerers, witches, Damballa - the serpent God that is said to have created the world - and majestic raven, the symbol of courage and wisdom.
