Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Microgaming has revealed details of its latest drop of action-packed exclusive new games designed to excite and entertain players.

Throughout January, Microgaming will launch an array of exclusive new titles developed by its roster of independent studios and game development partners.

The new year begins with a trip to ancient Egypt in Book of Atem, developed exclusively by All41 Studios. Players can unlock the mysteries of the pharaohs in this five-reel, 10-payline slot featuring free spins with expanding symbols. The magical book symbol acts as both a wild and scatter in this dynamic game offering excellent win potential up to 5,000x the initial bet. With classic Egyptian music and graphics, Book of Atem revealed its ancient secrets on 7 January.

East Asian riches await in Double Lucky Line by Just For The Win, featuring vivid visuals and a feast of features. Set to launch exclusively to Microgaming operators on 14 January, this five-reel, 17-payline slot is home to several double symbols, including pairs of dragons, frogs and turtles. The ever-present Double Lucky Line feature ensures that only double symbols land on the centre reel, thereby optimising win potential during normal gameplay. Rounding out the game’s features are Random Wilds and free spins, with Lucky Wilds awarding further free spins and unlocking extra double symbol positions throughout the reel set.

Triple Edge Studios take players on a safari in African Quest, a five-by-four reel, 1,024 ways online slot including Hyperspins™, Microgaming’s strategic paid respin mechanic, which previously featured in Break da Bank Again Respin. Players join the search for Kubwa, the high-paying stacked lion symbol ready to roar out majestic rewards. Gathering three or more scatter symbols awards free spins in which players have the chance to select their desired free spin and multiplier option. During free spins, the wild symbol awards a multiplier, which can potentially result in up to a 64x multiplier if more than one multiplier lands. Embark on this African adventure on 21 January and set your sights on magnificent rewards.

Microgaming’s fourth exclusive release in January is The Incredible Balloon Machine™ by Crazy Tooth Studio. Taking flight on 28 January, this whimsical and innovative game features WiNCREASE™, multipliers up to 10x, and a rewarding Pick Bonus feature, in which players can inflate colourful balloons against a dreamy sky to reveal lofty rewards – provided they collect them before the balloons pop!

Providing access to an industry-leading portfolio of exclusive content and top-performing partner games, Microgaming is set to deliver dozens of exciting new titles in 2020.

“Microgaming’s January titles are representative of the variety and quality that will be rolled out throughout 2020. The mechanics of these feature-rich exclusive games combine with innovative new designs to create a thrilling gameplay experience for all players. The year ahead is shaping up to be very exciting as we add new games to Microgaming’s progressive jackpot network, take on new adventures with some of our favourite characters, and continuously debut exclusive games with new and dynamic themes.” – James Buchanan, Director of Global Operations at Microgaming.

Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Game Payment Technology (GPT), the UK developed cashless payments app, launched its international marketing campaign with a successful debut appearance at ICE London.  The result of a joint venture between bacta and Polar Moment, GPT’s appearance at ICE London resulted in positive interest from gaming organisation’s based in Spain, United States, France and Holland as well as a meeting with representatives from the DCMS, which was described by bacta’s Robert Gibb as being ‘both productive and encouraging.’

Expanding on GPT’s ICE London experience, Gibb stated: “It’s been a key part of the business plan to explore opportunities to introduce the app to businesses operating outside of the UK and in the process seek to develop additional revenue streams to support bacta and its members. In that respect ICE London, which attracts over 100 nationalities, is the perfect platform.

“We met with representatives from several countries and our entire time was spent demonstrating how the app works and explaining how it has been built around a commitment to social responsibility. There’s no doubt that ICE delivers a new audience and is about making contacts for the future. From the feedback we received it’s clear that GPT provides solutions that cut across cultures and jurisdictions. It was also very valuable to be able to spend some time with representatives from the DCMS and keep them updated on the project and the significant progress that has been made. We are very grateful to the team at Reflex for allowing us to share their stand space and extremely happy to start the year with successful appearances first at EAG and then ICE London.”

The GPT app is undergoing its first live tests following completion of a payment acquiring agreement with one of the top three UK acquirers, a nationally recognised brand. It represents the first such deal with a Tier 1 UK bank for cashless gaming in pubs and other venues and is a testament of the acquirer’s confidence in GPT’s business plan, product credentials, financial structure, and the team’s ability to manage a gambling e-wallet.
