New release boasts stunning graphics and lively gameplay

 

Stockholm, 8th May 2018 – Swedish slots specialist Quickspin, a Playtech Group company, is taking players on a swashbuckling search for treasure in its latest release, Pirate’s Charm.

The journey to the dark side begins as the salty old seadogs slip anchor in the tranquil waters of the harbour on the hunt for mystical charms. Players then need to weather the storm as the heavens open to claim the riches on offer in this 3/5 slot.

Match three bonus scatter symbols in the same spin to win 10 free spins, with an additional two free spins for every full reel of Mystery Charm symbols. When these symbols appear across reels 1, 2 and 3, the Mystery Charms Respin feature is triggered, locking all symbols into place.

Quickspin CEO, Daniel Lindberg, said: “Pirate’s charm is our darkest creation to date and a real sea-change from our most recent releases, adding another layer of depth to our portfolio.

The high-quality graphics really bring the game to life, ensuring only those with the courage and tenacity to overcome the stormy conditions will succeed.

Founded in 2011, Quickspin rapidly established itself as a leading development studio for real money and social casino gaming and was acquired by Playtech in March 2016.

Now licensed in multiple jurisdictions, its award-winning content has seen  the company sign agreements with a long list of leading operators.

Caesars Palace is one of the largest properties in that part of Las Vegas with a variety of spacious facilities, including its nearly 125,000-square-foot casino floor.

Caesars Palace table game dealers now move to unite with the UAW, the major Detroit-based labour union representing workers from different industries across the United States and Canada. Nearly 550 casino dealers at Caesars Palace voted to unite with the UAW.

The Caesars Palace unionisation decision was made after a 371-12 vote in favour of the move. More than 1,470 dealers at Caesars-owned Bally’s Harrah’s, Paris, and Wynn Resorts’ Las Vegas casinos voted last week to join the union that represents around 400,000 active workers in different industries.

Union President Gary Jones said that they were thrilled to have Caesars Palace “vote to be allowed to join what are now over 10,000 casino workers in the UAW.”

Vance Pearson, Director of UAW Region 5, said in a release that they welcome the new union members and “look forward to getting down to business and bargaining great contracts.”
