This week sees new slot games released by iSoftBet and Pariplay, Ladbrokes launch another GW Games title, as well as integrations for Betsoft Gaming and an upgrade to n2-LIVE’s live dealer platform.
Isle of Man-based gaming software supplier Pariplay has launched a new real-money online video slot based on the iconic Bloodshot comic book series published by Valiant Entertainment.
Developed in partnership with Valiant, Pariplay’s new Bloodshot video slot remains faithful to the original comic book tale of a former soldier gifted with the powers of superhuman strength, self-healing and the ability to shape-shift as he seeks vengeance against the mob and the government agency which transformed him.
Featuring razor-sharp, blood-soaked graphics that do justice to the original artwork, the 5-reel, 25-line slot also boasts a thrilling soundtrack that immerses players in the action. Developed in HMTL5 to allow play across all devices, the slot features free spins, a bonus multiplier and expanding and sticky wilds.
“We’re excited to unveil Bloodshot, our latest branded video slot, following our release of various Atari-branded casino games in 2016 and into Q1 2017,” said Adrian Bailey, general manager at Pariplay. “Bloodshot is one of the most popular recent comic book superheroes in the entire genre.
“We are confident that the new slot, which pays homage to the original comic and also provides the added entertainment value of real-money wagering, will be a significant success.”
It follows a partnership between Pariplay and Valiant back in 2014 to develop real-money branded slots based on the publisher’s portfolio of original comic book titles and characters, which also includes X-O Manowar, Harbinger, Shadowman, Archer & Armstrong, and Eternal Warrior.
First published in 1992, Bloodshot is one of Valiant’s flagship franchises and is slated to debut on the big screen in 2018 in a feature film adaptation. More than 100 issues have been published, with lifetime sales of more than 7m copies across the world.
“Bloodshot is one of our most iconic comics heroes and boasts a legion of fans around the world,” said Russell Brown, president of consumer products, promotions & ad sales at Valiant Entertainment. “We’re delighted to see Pariplay develop a state-of-the-art video slot that will bring the character to life and enable Valiant to reach and engage new customers with thrilling gameplay and state-of-the-art graphics.”
UK games developer GW Games has released its latest HTML5 slot, The Buzz Slots, for leading UK operator Ladbrokes.

Online casino games developer iSoftBet has launched its latest slot title Beetle Jewels.
Beetle Jewels is a 10-payline, five-reel slot and is the first SoftBet game to be HTML5-optimised for both desktop and mobile.
The bug-themed slot, which is packed with features and freebies, is set in an enchanted forest inhabited by colourful beetles, each one carrying a precious gem on its back. The game features Free Spins, Expanding Symbols and Non-Adjacent pays.
“We are focused on offering our players a diverse selection of games,” said Nir Elbaz, managing director at iSoftBet. “We are altering look and feel, and adding exciting features backed up by strong maths.
“The strategy of releasing new games regularly hasn’t derailed us from producing high-quality content, and the launch of Beetle Jewels validates that. The feedback we’ve received so far has been good, and we’re looking forward to seeing Beetle Jewels perform across all operators.”
iSoftBet developed the game using open source TypeScript programming language and is in the process of converting its old slot games through TypeScript to provide operators with enhanced versions of its most popular titles.
3D casino games developer Betsoft Gaming has signed a partnership with Italian platform provider Pixelo to expand the distribution of its content across the country.

“I am really proud to partner with Pixelo," said Julian Camilleri, Betsoft’s sales and account manager. "This newly signed deal is a significant part of Betsoft's concentrated push into the Italian market.”
Pixelo sales director Cristina Ferrario added: “Pixelo is a young and rapidly expanding company, and with the launch of new games we are approaching our growth target in the field of online platforms and consolidation of our leading position at a national level.”
Philippines-based mobile solutions provider AngelnLive has enhanced its live dealer platform n2-Live with a revamp of its Baccarat game.
n2-Live, which is powered by EntwineTech, is said to include improvements to game play and a smoother faster dealing process.
A new live dealer table interface has also been introduced which now features six card scanners, which the company claims is a first for the industry.
“In a land based casino Baccarat is a fast paced exciting game,” said a spokesperson for n2-LIVE. “The pace and speed of the game generates lots of betting opportunities for the players and increased revenues for the casino.
“After listening to our partners and looking at how their customers like to play in land based casinos we realised there was a big opportunity to improve the players experience, speed up the game play and generate more revenue and profit for our operators.”
n2-LIVE added that its new dealing system brings an extra degree of reality to the game play.
“We have brought a little bit more magic to our live dealer game play bringing the customer experience even closer to that of a land based table and added increased profit generating opportunities for our partners,” said the spokesperson.
