Playtech has continued to expand its award-winning Age of the Gods series of games with the launch of a poker variant of the brand.

Age of the Gods Twister Poker is a three-player game where the jackpot is a randomly-determined multiple of up to 100x the buy-in. It is designed to offer a rapid-fire take on poker, with a starting stack of five big blinds to ensure the play does not stop.

The title also shares jackpot liquidity with the eight other games in the Age of the Gods series, enabling players to randomly trigger the four-tier progressive jackpot on every hand. A portion of ever buy-in on Twister Poker goes towards the progressive jackpot, which offers a top-tier prize of €100,000.

"We're delighted to bring our hugely popular Age of the Gods brand to the world of Twister Poker," Playtech chief operating officer Shimon Akad said.

"Our development team has done an exceptional job of recreating the look and feel of the series, combining striking graphics with compelling gameplay. Twister has proved to be a highly popular Poker variant, and we're confident that fans of both the concept and the Age of the Gods brand will be very excited by the new game."

The Age of the Gods poker title follows the roll-out of Age of the Gods Live Roulette in 2016, and the release of bingo slot Lord of Lightning last month, as Playtech looks to build the brand into a hit title across all verticals.

"The core principle of our Playtech ONE strategy is that players should enjoy the same excellent experience across all devices and channels," Akad said.

"The expansion of the Age of the Gods suite takes this one step further, delivering the same excitement and high-quality visuals the series is known for in distinct games across all key verticals. Bringing the power of a leading slots brand to poker creates some excellent cross-sell opportunities that we know can be of tremendous value to our licensees."
