This week sees new titles released by Yggdrasil Gaming, Ezugi, Highlight Games, OneTouch, Betsoft Gaming and Authentic Gaming, alongside integrations for Red Tiger Gaming and Realistic Games.
Red Tiger Gaming
Isle of Man-based casino games developer Red Tiger Gaming has integrated its full suite of games and player management software to operator William Hill.
Red Tiger titles including Arcade Bomb, Lucky Wizard and Totem Lightning have gone live with William Hill Vegas, with over 100 games set to launch during the next three years.
The games will also soon be available via the Hills Games tab while the supplier's Asian-themed games will go live under the Macau tab.
Red Tiger has also provided the operator with its progressive jackpot software, as well as its Smart Spins marketing tools which takes a wide range of bonus mechanics and targeting options, delivering promotions via an in-game dialogue module.
William Hill is the first Gibraltar-licensed operator to have access to Red Tiger's full suite of products. The company now plans to roll this out across most other Gibraltar-based operators with several major technical integrations now in their final stages.
"We are delighted to have become such a significant partner to William Hill," said Gavin Hamilton, managing director at Red Tiger Gaming. "We are very excited to provide them with our games and casino platform as they enter a new era of product excellence.
"William Hill is one of the most prestigious operators and this deal exemplifies our core strategy to supply well regulated casino operators with market leading products."
Graeme Powrie, gaming commercial director at William Hill, said: "Going live with Red Tiger is very exciting for us. This partnership proves that we are dedicated to offering William Hill customers the very best gaming experience possible."
Malta-based slot specialist Yggdrasil Gaming is taking players back in time with its new extra-terrestrial slot Reptoids.
Aliens will be exposed in top government positions as they look to take over the world in this 1960s-inspired title with old-school graphics and an engaging story, which evokes the conspiracy theories of the time.
The slot introduces the supplier's innovative Repto Detector feature. If the scanner hits one of the high paying symbols, all similar symbols on all reels turn wild. Players will further impede the reptoid revolution by landing a scatter symbol in the detector field, which then triggers the Free Spin mode and the chance for more big wins.
"We are very happy with how we've combined the Reptoids' concept and mechanics into a perfect fit, which makes gameplay both intuitive and easy to follow for newcomers," said Yggdrasil Gaming’s head of slots Jonas Strandman. "Seasoned slot players will also appreciate the strong chance of big wins in the base game."
Slots from casino supplier Realistic Games have gone live across SKillOnNet's brands including PlayOjo, SlotsMagic, EUcasino, and LuckyNiki.com.
These will be joined in the new year by a range of new games which are scheduled to be released on phone, tablet and desktop.
"Realistic Games' slots have proven popular in markets around the globe, so we are delighted our players can experience them now too," said SkillOnNet spokesman Andy Andrews. "Our aim is to offer them a wide selection of quality games, so joining forces with Realistic and adding their portfolio of proven performers was an easy decision to make."
Robert Lee, senior commercial manager at Realistic Games, said: "We are very pleased to be providing our slots to SkillOnNet, who have a number of successful casino brands.
"We're confident that their customers will be engaged and entertained by them, no matter what device they choose to play them on, and we look forward to delivering new content in the coming months."
London-based virtual sports specialist Highlight Games, which is part-owned by Sweden's Cherry, has launched its flagship Soccerbet game which incorporates real life game footage.
Taking decades of archived football highlights, the game combines six ten-second clips from an individual fixture across a number of seasons, presenting the randomly generated minute-long package as one individual game in a similar manner to virtual sports titles.
"Soccerbet is a revolutionary take on virtual sports that combines real stars, with real goals, and real match action. There is nothing else like it on the market," said Tim Green, CEO of Highlight Games. "Virtual sports has exploded in popularity over recent years, but this product represents the next step in its evolution, combining traditional betting markets with our unique product and patent-protected display of archived action.
"Football is a language spoken by people all over the world, and we are delighted to debut a game that speaks to the universal enjoyment of the game across the globe."
Available in both single game and league formats, Highlight Games is currently engaged in discussions with operators to launch the game through 2017 and early 2018.
Live dealer specialist Ezugi has expanded its portfolio with the release of Unlimited 21 Blackjack Auto Split.
The exclusive feature of Unlimited Blackjack is the possibilities to let an unlimited number of players play the same game simultaneously against the dealer. To increase game play, the auto split functionality on specific pairs of player cards is built into the game rules.
Available in HTML5 on desktop and mobile, the game is Ezugi's 18th live casino game to be rolled out.
"Unlimited 21 Blackjack Auto Split is a fantastic addition to the Ezugi game portfolio," said Ezugi head of customer relations Craig Luke. "Captivating gameplay, smart UI and a unique auto split variant will attract new and existing players by giving all your players a seat at the table."
Isle of Man-based casino games developer OneTouch Technology has launched a new mobile-first roulette game which provides an intuitive user experience via a single touch on handheld devices.
OneTouch Roulette presents a regular and zoomed-in view of the betting table, ensuring players can quickly and accurately place their bets.
When the Spin button is pushed, the view then focuses on the ball as the table spins, while desktop players can watch close-up images of the balls' final bounces before it comes to a rest.
The game has already been integrated with bitcoin casino operator Bitcasino.io.
"OneTouch Roulette is a fine addition to our growing array of table games, all of which are designed to be played on the go with a single thumb," said Matthew Rochman, head of technology at OneTouch. "Its zoom feature, designed specifically for mobile, enables players to focus on both the table and the roulette wheel, replicating the feel of a real-life casino. We are confident players will love it."
Slots specialist Betsoft has announced its latest release with the launch of Stampede.
The game transports players to the windswept African savannah, home to majestic elephant families, herds of zebras and gazelles among others.
Stampede showcases an expanded spread of reels that enable 1,024 ways to win. The game pays left to right and right to left, where the longest combination of symbols awards the payout.
A generous Scatter Pay event in the game can offer up to 20 free spins, along with a small instant credit prize. During Free Spins, the frequent Wild symbol can appear with a 2x or 3x multiplier, creating an opportunity for enormous credit wins. These multiplied Wilds can then be further multiplied if two or more Wild symbols appear on the reels, making way for a potential 27x multiplier.
"We feel that the theme for Stampede is strongly developed, and designed to appeal to a wide sampling of iGaming demographics," said Betsoft's head of product development Dan Cooper. "We are especially excited about the explosive chance for huge win multipliers, which we know will make this game an instant favorite for many players.
"Detailed grassland faunae add a depth of experience that will allow players to taste the hot winds of the savannah and all the rich life making that area their natural home."
Live dealer provider Authentic Gaming is rolling out its Casino Floor Live Studio to its network partners following an initial launch with operator LeoVegas.
The new live dealer format allows online players to access dedicated tables in studio environments located on the floors of real land-based casinos.
Casino Floor Live Studio first launched with LeoVegas in November, and is now being rolled out to operators on the Authentic Gaming network including Mr Green, Unibet, Codeta, NYX Gaming Group and others.
"Casino Floor Live Studio marks the next stage in our product diversification plan," said Jonas Delin, CEO of Authentic Gaming. "We have an active production pipeline, with a raft of new formats and games set to launch in the coming months and throughout 2018.
"We are launching new live casino products in Q4 and throughout 2018 that are specifically designed to appeal to the large and growing player base that engage with tables streamed out of studios.
"That said, we continue to focus on bringing prestigious land-based gaming tables online via our Authentic Roulette platform, and ensuring the quality of our products and services remains unrivalled."
