A couple of new online pokies from Microgaming both arrived on September 9th. These latest pokies included Rugby Star (5 reels and 243 ways to win per spin) and Lucky Zodiac (5 reels and 20 winning paylines). We also then found out about three new online pokies that are scheduled to be released in October.
These new October 2015 pokies include Titans of the Sun – Hyperion, Titans of the Sun – Theia (both have 5 reels and 15 paylines) and Peek-A-Boo (5 reels and 40 paylines). These new pokies may have already arrived by the time you are reading these words. This leading online casino software provider is also set to release the new Basketball Star pokie (5 reels and 243 ways to win per spin) and the new Lucky Twins pokie (5 reels and 9 paylines), but these two won’t be available in NZ online casinos until November 2015.
In other news relating to Microgaming, the Global Gaming Awards 2015 took place at the Venetian Palazzo Congress Center in Las Vegas on Monday 28th September and for a second year running, Microgaming netted the Digital Product of the Year award for its Jurassic Park online pokie. Microgaming also ended up winning the Digital Gaming Innovation award for its work on Virtual Reality and Wearable Technology.
“We are so proud to win not one but two awards at this highly prestigious and credible award ceremony! Jurassic Park™ is an incredible game and the fact that the experience is just as impressive on mobile as it is online really does blow people away,” said the Microgaming CEO, Roger Raatgever. He finished by saying, “For those that have seen our slots work on smart watches and experienced our VR Roulette product, it is an incredible insight into the future of online gaming. A big thanks and well done to my team for this huge achievement!”
This award-winning online casino software provider also announced that Evolution Gaming will become the preferred provider of Live Casino Games to Microgaming’s European focussed customers, since a new deal was recently struck between the two companies. Integration of Live Games from Evolution has already got started over at Betway and this platform will be available for both mobile and desktop users.
“This is likely to be one of the most significant strategic deals in the history of Live Casino gaming. In the past, Microgaming and Evolution have been competitors when offering Live Casino services to licensees. We know the high standards set by Microgaming, they are a giant in the gaming world, and we are proud to establish a close working relationship with them, with a single shared goal: to offer the world’s best Live Casino to Microgaming’s extensive licensee base,” said the Evolution Gaming CEO, Jens von Bahr.
