SlotsMillion and AleaPlay have added to their portfolio the first browser-VR game developed by Evoplay Entertainment

Game provider Evoplay Entertainment has gone live with major online casino SlotsMillion, the world’s first virtual reality casino.

SlotsMillion is now one of the leading brands in the industry, with a selection of over 2500 games. It has gathered recognition for either Best Casino or Innovator Operator from the likes of EGR, CEEG and IGA, as well as from reputable affiliates such as Latest Casino Bonuses, AskGamblers and Casinomeister. The integration with Evoplay Entertainment comes shortly after recent additions of iconic game providers Novomatic, Scientific Games and IGT to SlotsMillion’s portfolio.

Evoplay Entertainment started out as a game development studio in January 2017 and has already released an industry first; their 3D/VR slot Necromancer, which is one of the 40 new games they bring to SlotsMillion. Necromancer requires no app or download to use and runs in browser on smartphones, making it easy to switch between mobile and VR without affecting the game session at all. 3D technology is used in the camera rotation effect and lets players see the characters from various angles, allowing them a more immersive experience.

SlotsMillion co-founder Alexandre Tomic said, “We are thrilled to have Evoplay’s games on SlotsMillion and especially to be able to offer Necromancer to our players, as virtual reality is at the heart of what we do and we pride ourselves on delivering cutting-edge gaming experiences to our players. We are sure that this is what Evoplay will bring us and are delighted to have them on board.”

Alexander Levchenko, CEO of Evoplay Entertainment, said: “Joining forces with ALEA means a lot to us and partnering with the igaming industry’s leader in VR is really exciting, given that we have just released our first 3D virtual reality slot. We are looking forward to working alongside ALEA and to delivering more of our unique content to SlotsMillion in the very near future.”

MuchBetter Pits Fans vs Streamers in Summer Series Tournament
Reading Time: 3 minutes

 

Online poker fans compete with biggest names in streaming, with grand final offering seat at the European Poker Tour

 

The payments company, MuchBetter, today announced its sponsorship of the first social online poker tournament of its kind. The tournament lets fans play against top poker pros for a chance to win a coveted seat at August’s 2019 European Poker Tour in Barcelona, as well as the new tournament series, Lex Live 2 in London. Using PokerStars’ Home Game platform, some of the biggest streamers in online poker, including Lex Veldhuis, have created their own private poker clubs, allowing them to compete directly with their community members across four game weeks this summer.

The Poker Clubs competing for the grand final are:

  • Beaker Army – club captain, Lex Veldhuis
  • Team OP– club captain, EVAisOP
  • Spraggy’s Un-named Team – club captain, Spraggy
  • The Shabanimals – club captain, Arlie
  • ATB Rovers – club captain, Fintan Hand
  • Grnd empire – club captain, Felix Schneiders

Games will be played across 4 game weeks in July and August in club mini-leagues to decide the 600 Grand Final participants, made up of 100 from each club (the top 25 from gameweek will progress)” – when all 6 clubs and their captains go head-to-head. The top 3 of each gameweek will also win Grand Final bonus chips, as well as unique community prizes for busting their own team captain in their respective mini-league – while the winner of the grand final will win a full EPT Main Event package (covering the €5k entry, accommodation, plus expenses).  2nd, 3rd and -4th place finishes will also win Barcelona Main Event seats (with expenses) and 5th, 6th and 7th will win a place at LexLive 2. To sign up to a team, players simply need to download the MuchBetter app and deposit $10 onto PokerStars using their chosen club captain’s unique deposit code.

“At its heart, poker is all about community,” said MuchBetter co-founder and CEO, Israel Rosenthal. “Poker sites have grown this community to such a degree that players can sit across the table with anyone anywhere on the planet, but we believe that the future of poker also involves going back to its home game roots through community tournaments like this. At MuchBetter, we’re committed to being part of the poker community in all its forms and enabling players to play the game however they like. We know that every poker fan wants a seat at EPT Barcelona, and this tournament is a golden opportunity to secure a place”

“Like the other club captains, I know I go into this tournament with a target on my back,” said Lex Veldhuis. “I’m sure my followers will love the idea of beating me in a private game, but don’t expect me to go easy on them. I want to win this tournament as much as anyone, and make sure I come out on top against the other streamers. More than anything though, it’s good to be taking part in something new. I started doing the Lex Live events because I know fans want to feel part of the poker community, and this tournament is the same. It’s poker stripped back to basics, replicating the kind of private home game that got me into poker in the first place.”
