This week has seen new slot releases by Play’n GO, launches for Core Gaming, Genii, Lightning Box Games and Realistic Games, and platform integrations for iSoftBet and Nolimit city.
Play’n GO has launched a new Viking-themed slot game, inviting players to enter the Viking Runecraft world.
The HTML5-enabled game immerses players in ancient mythology among the Norse Gods, and offers players the chance to earn big prizes by forming winning rune symbol combinations across Play’n GO’s first ever 7x7 grid slot. Players can also seek out bonus rewards by filling the Charge of Destruction bar or initiating the Ragnarök feature, where they can benefit from up to 15x multipliers.
Throughout the game, the Norse Gods of Thunder, Wisdom, Beauty and Guarding will appear through various worlds, assisting with unique gifts to help players increase their winnings.
All winning symbols during gameplay sessions will add to the Runes of Valhalla bonus, which when activated transports the player to a bonus game where they can accumulate bonus runes on a spinning wheel. The more symbols collected, the greater the chance of scooping the bonus pot.
Johan Törnqvist, CEO of Play’n GO, commented: “We continue to offer the latest in gaming technology with our first ever 7x7 grid slot and this addition will cement our position as one of the most creative and innovative gaming suppliers in the industry.”
Realistic Games has agreed a deal to roll out its portfolio of games with operator Mr Green.
Utilising NYX Gaming’s OGS distribution platform, Mr Green will expand its online casino with Realistic’s portfolio of slots and table games.
The supplier’s blackjack and roulette games have already gone live with the operator, with a selection of slots set to launch shortly.
“We are extremely pleased to be providing our games to Mr Green, who have emerged in recent years as one of the most successful casino brands on the market,” said Realistic Games CEO Andy Harris. “We’re very confident that their customers will be engaged and entertained by our products, no matter what device they play them on, and we’re particularly pleased to be able to offer them our table games.”
Stockholm-based games developer Nolimit city is looking to increase its presence in the Asian market following a deal with Malta-licensed content distributor Flow Gaming.
Flow Gaming’s partners will gain access to Nolimit games including Oktoberfest, Space Arcade, Creepy Carnival and Kitchen Drama – Sushi Mania, with a raft of additional titles set for release over the course of the year.

Lightning Box Games
Sydney-based slot developer Lightning Box Games has made its UK retail debut following the launch of its Silver Lion Deluxe game with UK bookmaker William Hill.
Silver Lion Deluxe is a 4x5 reel, 10-line slot which takes players on safari across the sweeping plains of the African Savannah in search of the mythical Silver Lion. Along the way, players encounter zebras, hippos, meerkats, and spear-rattling tribesmen, with an appearance of the Silver Lion in the undergrowth leading to engagement in bonus rounds and huge wins. The Deluxe edition now includes a new Bonus Respin feature designed to cater for the difference in player taste in land-based environments.
William Hill’s director of product and content Andrew Sackey said: “Omni-channel content that performs strongly in both Retail and Online is a key focus, and Lightning Box Games have been performing in both areas in multiple countries with their Freespins based content, so we are really happy to get their games exclusive in the UK.”
Lightning Box Games’ managing director and co-founder Peter Causley added: “We have been talking with Andrew for a few years about doing something omni-channel with Hills, and we’re delighted to have finally partnered with one of the industry’s leading bookmakers, to make our UK retail debut.
“Silver Lion Deluxe has been tailored with the help of our friends at BetDigital to suit the needs of players within the operator’s LBOs and we’re sure they will enjoy playing the game as much as we did making it.”
iSoftBet has reached an agreement with Asian-facing gaming supplier SA Gaming, ahead of G2E Asia which takes place in Macau next month.
The reciprocal deal sees iSoftBet provide its games to SA Gaming, whose Asia-themed live casino and live-stream lottery products will in turn be added to iSoftBet’s Game Aggregation Platform (GAP).
“Our deal with SA Gaming is the best way to kick-start our build-up to G2E, which we hope to be the most successful show to date,” said Michael Probert, head of business development at iSoftBet. “The deal will see our portfolio of games made available on the SA Gaming platform, while its live casino games will make a great addition to our already packed catalogue of content.
“We are thrilled to be exhibiting at G2E once again, with this year’s show set to be our best so far as we continue to sign up new partners and launch exciting games.”
Casino games developer Genii has agreed to provide its full portfolio of games to operator Interwetten.
Genii sales director Nick Barr said his company was thrilled that Interwetten had become its newest partner.
“The last few months have been really exciting for Genii and deals like this allow us to extend the reach of Genii content,” he said. “We are delighted to add our suite of games to the top quality services that Interwetten provides.”
Interwetten CEO Werner Becher said that the operator prided itself on providing the best experience to its players and ensuring it has the best products in the market.
“Our partnership with Genii does just that; we will now be able to offer our players a new dimension to our casino through Genii’s extensive offering that focuses on interaction and engagement with players,” he said. “I am sure this will be a hit with our players.”
UK games developer Core Gaming has launched a selection of its games with online casino operator Videoslots.com.
The site has already gone live with six of Core Gaming’s HTML5 slots, including Beehive Bedlam and Pharaoh’s Wild, with three more games ready to be rolled out.
