Microgaming has announced plans to unveil a new Game of Thrones® branded online slot later this year.

The deal builds on a successful branded relationship with HBO that was penned six years ago when Microgaming launched its first Game of Thrones branded slot game in 2014.

Marked for release later this year, Game of Thrones™ Power Stacks™ will feature some of the leading characters and personalities from the hit HBO® series Game of Thrones, ready to lead players on a new pursuit for rewards through the world of Westeros. The branded slot is being developed by Slingshot Studios, an independent studio that is providing innovative, high-quality content exclusively for Microgaming.

Taking global mainstream audiences by storm, Game of Thrones is one of the most popular entertainment brands in the world. The genre-defining TV series has netted hundreds of award nominations and wins, including 160 Primetime Emmy® Award nominations with 59 wins, and seven Golden Globe Award nominations with one win.

The eighth season of the show reached phenomenal status, with the season finale being watched by 19.3 million viewers across all HBO platforms. The series has given rise to a number of officially licensed products, including the immensely popular slot game by Microgaming, available in both 243 ways and 15 lines.

Now fans of the series can look forward to a whole new Game of Thrones journey, as the latest title is set to join Microgaming’s award-winning portfolio of branded content. Microgaming will be celebrating its latest Game of Thrones slot at ICE London 2020.

iSoftBet launches unique Bonus Chance feature in Fishin’ For Gold slot
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Innovative mechanic offers players who hit only two of the three Bonus symbols an extra chance to catch a big win!

Cast away and spin the reels on iSoftBet’s new Fishin’ for Gold slot, where players have the unique chance to catch even more big wins thanks to its latest game-changing Bonus Chance mechanic.

Market-leading online and mobile casino software and games provider iSoftBet is well known for its innovative slot features and is adding even more to its new portfolio of titles for 2020.

Following extensive research into players’ frustration when hitting only two out of three bonus symbols, iSoftBet has created a new Bonus Chance feature. This allows players to fill a meter every time exactly two bonus symbols land, giving them the opportunity to spin a wheel whenever they like for a shot at triggering Free Spins – the higher the meter, the greater the chances.

Join our four frenzied fishermen and enjoy an unforgettable expedition in search of rare catches, big wins and free spins on the submerged reels of Fishin’ For Gold. In addition to building up the Bonus Chance meter, players can enjoy even more ways to win by reeling in three golden fish to unlock the lucrative free spins round, where golden symbols act as extra wilds to unleash those big money wins.

Mark Claxton, Head of Games at iSoftBet, said: “We are well known in the industry for constantly adding innovation, and 2020 will be bigger than ever with a series of new mechanics geared towards giving players so much more than other slots, providing them with the ultimate gaming experience.

“Bonus Chance is the first of those, with players who successfully spin the wheel rewarded with a brilliant free spins bonus round. This style of feature rewards loyalty and gives players the potential to choose their own strategy regarding when to spin the Bonus Chance wheel.

“We previewed Fishin’ For Gold at ICE London earlier this month, alongside our new catalogue of titles, including our first Megaways game, Aztec Gold, and our new horse racing themed Racetrack Riches, the first iSoftBet slot to feature our unique Megaboard bonus round. Our games have never been met with such acclaim and excitement from both existing and potential clients and we can’t wait to unveil what we have in store for the rest of this year.”

A new German gambling comparison website is offering to refund players if they do not get paid by online casinos
Casinos.de only works with trusted operators and offers a refund to players if their cash is withheld by a recommended casino for no good reason.
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

The Casinos.de site is offering this first-of-a-kind “deposit guarantee” in an effort to become an established brand and authority in the German market.

The site, whose domain was purchased for a six-figure sum, offers comparisons between casinos that are trusted operators and which have been carefully vetted for reliability and quality of service.

If a player does not receive their winnings from a recommended casino and there is no good reason for withholding the cash, then up to €500 from their first deposit will be refunded by Casinos.de

The website offers expert guides to playing online and helps people choose an online casino based on factors such as region, preferred deposit method, or by a favourite game.

Casinos.de is owned by Blexr, a performance marketing company based in Malta and Barcelona, which specialises in lead generation. It invested €450,000 to obtain this domain name in an effort to build a web property with integrity for the German market.

Blexr’s co-founder Paudie O’Reilly said offering a guarantee over player deposits was a “very unique approach to the market and the first of its kind”.

He added: “Given the need for trust amongst our users, we are saying to German players that we will put our money where our mouth is.

“If for some reason you do not get treated as you should at a casino we recommend, we’ll give you your money back. We are that confident in our offering that we can commit to this deal and follow through with our promise.”

The site launched in January and Mr O’Reilly said it was the first step towards claiming a majority share of the German market.

“We created www.casinos.de to give a sense of security to German players who really value a trustworthy name.

“They tend to be very data and computer savvy and show concerns about the legitimacy of websites. We knew upon entering the market that we would need to offer German users something that contained premium qualities, along with trust and legitimacy.”
