Pragmatic Play has launched its latest live casino game ONE Blackjack.
Broadcasted from Pragmatic Play’s state-of-the-art studio, ONE Blackjack allows an unlimited number of players to join in on the action at any time.
The game includes four different types of side bet, including Crazy 7, where the player bets on the possibility of having trip 7’s on their first three cards, and Bust Bonus, where players can bet that the dealer's hand will bust.
Six Card Charlie is another special feature which automatically deems any player a winner when they draw six cards without busting.
“We are delighted to add ONE Blackjack to our ever-improving portfolio of Live Casino titles, bringing its distinctive features into the spotlight,” said Pragmatic Play chief business development officer Yossi Barzely. “Catering to all Blackjack needs, from casual players to high rollers, we are excited to deliver an unparalleled betting experience to our operator network.”
Pragmatic Play's Hot to Burn Hold & Spin
Pragmatic Play has also this week released its latest slot Hot to Burn Hold & Spin, an upgraded sequel to its original Hot to Burn title.
The classic fruit-inspired title utilizes a Hold and Spin feature instead of offering free spins, and is enriched with a high-paying Big Money Wheel filled with multipliers that can reach up to 5,000x stakes.
"Hot to Burn Hold & Spin is sure to set operators and players alight with its timeless aesthetic and exclusive bonus features on offer," said Pragmatic Play chief business development officer Yossi Barzely.
"Fans of classic fruit machines and Hold and Wins will not be able to contain their excitement as they will now be able to enjoy the title as part of Pragmatic Play’s multi-product portfolio."

“Big Time Gaming was honored to collaborate with the IGT PlayDigital team to bring the Wheel of Fortune Megaways online slots game to life,” said Big Time Gaming CEO Nik Robinson. “Applying Big Time Gaming's leading slots mechanics and pioneering game design to the iconic Wheel of Fortune slots brand that IGT has cultivated for more than two decades was an exceptional experience that resulted in a superior game.”

"The classic and much-loved Top Cat licence is back, with the significant benefits that Jackpot King brings," said Blueprint Gaming director of key accounts and marketing UK Jo Purvis.
"Jackpot King remains incredibly popular, so it made complete sense to add it to this great game. We’re sure players and operators alike will be feline like the cat who got the cream."

Nolimit City’s Fire in the Hole xBomb
Nolimit City has launched Fire in the Hole xBomb, its first game to include the xBomb feature, which removes all adjacent symbols and increases the win multiplier.
“Taking on a classic gold mine theme, but with a twist of Nolimit City is always fun,” said Nolimit City product owner Per Lindheimer. “It’s more explosive dynamite than fabulous gems, just as you might expect from us - the unexpected. Massive potential wins, increasing reel areas and heart raising multipliers - this game is going to be da xBomb.”
Kalamba Games’ Joker Leprechauns
Kalamba Games has launched a new Irish-themed 6-reel slot, Joker Leprechauns.
“Joker Leprechauns is a whole lot of fun,” said Kalamba Games chief operating officer and co-founder Alex Cohen. “Top-end volatility and a classic theme brought up to date with fresh animations make this a game not to be missed. It’s sure to be another massive hit with multiple demographics.”
