This week has seen a new slot released by Playtech-owned Quickspin and BetConstruct, while there were a whole raft of integration deals for the likes of Relax Gaming, MGA Games, Betsoft Gaming, Gaming1 and Inspired.
Playtech-owned Swedish slots specialist Quickspin has launched its latest slot release, Northern Sky.
Set against the backdrop of a snowy Scandinavian landscape, the vibrant and colourful northern lights brighten up the sky with an avalanche of wins up for grabs.
The game features animal-shaped symbols made of crystals, which glisten in the night sky when triggered.
The 5x3 slot with nine paylines features re-spins on all wins, plus a free spins bonus using only the high paying animal symbols.
“Northern Sky is one of our most spectacular slot releases yet, the graphics are just incredible,” said Quickspin CEO Daniel Lindberg. “We’re certain players will appreciate the beautiful scenery, while the bonus rounds and free spins are sure to be an attractive proposition for them.”
iGamin software provider BetConstruct has enhanced its virtual sports offering with the release of a new title, Virtual Football Penalty Kicks.
The game is a set of back-to-back penalty kicks composed by opponent teams very similar to the ones available in a real football match. It engages players who prefer short games and offers players a range of in-play fast-paced wagering options.
BetConstruct offers 480 games every 3 minutes every day, backed with HD graphics and 3D visualization. The game offers more than 20 bet types.
The extension brings the total number of Inspired’s contracted machines in Greece to 7,395.
To date, Inspired has supplied 4,570 cabinets to Opap, with over 3,600 machines now operating as part of the operator’s continued deployment of SBG VLTs into its retail network.
"This additional VLT order from OPAP further strengthens Inspired's growing Greek business, which continues to deliver best-in-class Server Based Gaming technology and Virtual Sports to OPAP," said Luke Alvarez, president and CEO of Inspired. "I look forward to further building upon the success of our business partnership in the future."
