Gibraltar-licensed casino games supplier Realistic Games has gone live with roulette and blackjack games, embedded in Boylesports and BetVictor’s desktop sportsbook sites.

The games, which have gone live during the football World Cup and ahead of Royal Ascot, are integrated into the sportsbook site, located below the bet slip, and can work in tandem with the sports betting product. Players can access the games while they place their bets.

Realistic commercial director Andy Harris commented: “Operators will be at their busiest during the World Cup and the opportunity to offer casino products without taking customers away from the sportsbook is very appealing.

“It is also consistent with our view that newcomers should be introduced to casino games with effective, user-friendly cross-sell that doesn’t detract from their normal enjoyment of the site,” he explained.

Harris said that the games had been made larger than usual mini-games, with Realistic working closely with the two operators to ensure the on-screen real estate was used as effectively as possible to give players the best possible playing experience.

“There is nothing more frustrating than finding a mini game is simply too mini, making you yearn for playing the full size game,” he added. “These games are immensely playable.”

Realistic first rolled out the mini-games in April this year for Paddy Power, with blackjack and roulette added to the operator’s iPad app ahead of this year's Grand National horse race.
