Pull A Cracker, Shuffle Bots and Cashing Rainbows Pull Tabs now live

Award-winning casino content provider Realistic Games has added three new instant win games to its portfolio, Pull A Cracker, Shuffle Bots and Cashing Rainbows.

The new instant win titles contain more exciting features, first introduced in October with the release of Super Graphics Upside Down and Spin Dizzy. The games now include a free games bonus round, re-trigger chances on Pull A Cracker and Cashing Rainbows as well as random win multipliers up to x20 which create an even more engaging player experience.

Pull A Cracker, Realistic’s first seasonal title, can award players with an early Christmas present, offering a top prize of x750. The game includes a free games bonus round which can be re-triggered. Any win that the player receives in the bonus round is multiplied randomly by either x2, x3, x4 or x5.

The dancing robot themed pull tab, Shuffle Bots, offers a maximum prize of x500 the player’s bet. Finding 2 scatter symbols awards 5 free games and finding 3 scatters awards 10 free games; both of which can re-triggered. Shuffle Bot’s bonus round will also remove the lower value symbols, leaving players with the exciting opportunity of hitting the big wins.

Players of Cashing Rainbows can expect a maximum win of x2000 their bet, with a chance of triggering 15 free games by finding 2 or more scatter symbols. The player can then be rewarded with a multiplier up to x20 on any win in the free games.

Robert Lee, Commercial Director at Realistic Games, said:Pull A Cracker, Shuffle Bots and Cashing Rainbows are all designed to boost player engagement and retention rates while maintaining the accessibility and simple gaming experience provided by our instant win titles.

“The addition of free spins to the classic game format has raised the bar of our hugely popular pull tabs library, revitalising the playing style with a concept that has proven to increase session time.

“With themes that have been carefully crafted to appeal to a range of players and mechanics that cater to both instant win and slot players, these three pull tab releases are set to be a huge hit with our operators.”

Microgaming expands its portfolio of table games with Switch Studios
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Microgaming shakes up the table games vertical with an array of new releases developed by Switch Studios, an independent game studio developing content exclusively for the online gaming supplier.

Six new table game creations are scheduled to be released to Microgaming customers this December, demonstrating Switch Studios’ ambition to refresh the market with tailored, immersive games specifically optimised for mobile and desktop devices to powerful effect.

Following the release of European Blackjack earlier this year, Switch Studios have created a suite of blackjack variants. Atlantic City Blackjack, Vegas Strip Blackjack, Vegas Downtown Blackjack and Classic Blackjack launched simultaneously on 4 December, with Vegas Single Deck Blackjack due for release a week later on 11 December. Each bespoke title gives a casino classic new life with a minimalist design that puts the action at the forefront.

Players can experience the silk-smooth design and stellar performance of these blackjack titles both on the move or from the comfort of their home. Built on a powerful new engine, each game features Standard Side Bets: Double Down, Insurance, and Split Hands, and combines fluid gameplay with exciting animations and sound for a thrilling casino experience.

Built on the same engine that powers Switch Studios’ suite of blackjack games, Baccarat similarly benefits from clean graphics, superior sound and an intuitive game interface. Due to launch on 11 December alongside Vegas Single Deck Blackjack, Baccarat is a multi-platform online table game that updates a timeless Eastern classic for a new generation of players by emphasising quality design and features.

In addition to a sleek design and strong colours, Baccarat features a revolutionary implementation of the game’s essential player-controlled Card Squeeze mechanic, letting players authentically peel, pull, rotate, and flip their cards, a customisable Scorecard feature that can be tailored by the player, Advanced Road Statistics and a Turbo Mode.

Players can enjoy the best of classic casino gaming in these modern and feature-rich table games, available to Microgaming operators this month.

European Roulette, European Blackjack, and American Roulette are also part of a full suite of exclusive table games developed for Microgaming by Switch Studios earlier this year.

“We have further expanded our table games offering with the launch of six exciting new titles from Switch Studios, developed exclusively for Microgaming. Each of the six creations realises Switch Studios’ ambition to refresh the table games market with exciting casino experiences. The suite of blackjack games, along with the new baccarat title, are sure to set the standard for a new breed of table gaming.” – James Buchanan, Director of Global Operations at Microgaming.

“We are excited to see Microgaming release six new games under the Switch Studios brand. Our latest blackjack and baccarat titles combine immersive gameplay with stunning visuals, to provide new and seasoned players with a thrilling, modern and enjoyable mobile-friendly gameplay experience both at home and on the go. Each game comes with a unique built-in feature allowing operators to put their own stamp on it, by applying their own branding to the felt colour, table logo stamp, card back colour and card back logo. We aim to bring innovation, style and the best selection of games to the online table gaming sector, and we look forward to creating more exclusive titles for Microgaming next year.” – Tom David, Head of Studio at Switch Studios.
