Online gaming firm Sky Bet has announced the launch of its new live casino product in partnership with online slots developer Playtech.

Playtech is responsible for releasing a number of iconic online slots over recent years, including the Sahara-themed Desert Treasure slot and the Oriental slot title Wu Long, which have received positive receptions from slots fans.

Sky Bet’s Director of Products Conor Grant said “We are delighted to launch Sky Casino where our customers will enjoy a classic casino experience with more personalised promotions and rewards. Partnering with Playtech and utilising their industry leading casino platform allows us to create another exciting chapter in the development of Sky Betting and Gaming.”

Chief Operating Officer at Playtech Shay Segev stated “We have built a strong relationship with Sky over a number of years and are thrilled to be able to further consolidate our service provision to one of the industry’s most exciting operators.”

Scandinavian-based slot developer Net Entertainment officially released a video preview of its new Go Bananas slot this week.

The 5 reel, 20 pay-line upcoming slot release from the developer has a strong fruit-orientated theme with the reels packed full of symbols including various exotic fruits such as pineapples, limes, and coconuts, monkeys, idols, and gems.

The bananas represent the Wild symbols and these appear frequently on the reels to give players the chance to complete winning combinations by substituting for all other symbols on each spin. These Wild symbols appear when any of the monkey symbols appear on the reels. These will then transform random symbols on the reels into Wilds.

Unfortunately, there is no free spins bonus round or Pick ‘em Bonus to trigger on this slot. However, it is possible to win up to 140,000 coins on this slot so there is a lot to play for and plenty of incentive to keep players interested. This video preview comes just days after the developer announced the release of its electrifying Attraction Slot.

A Net Entertainment statement read “Go Bananas! is a fast-paced 5-reel, 3-row, 20-line game featuring 5 different Wild Monkey symbols. Set in a tree house in the tropical jungle with mischievous monkeys, juicy fruits and glimmering gems, the game offers big win chances packaged with fun and sun. Whenever any of the 5 Wild Monkeys appear on the reels, they turn adjacent symbols into Wild symbols. If there is a win, the jovial monkeys come to life and celebrate the gain. This colourful video slot really gives the player an action-packed game with a monkey twist – so let’s Go Bananas!”

Go Bananas is scheduled to be released later this month and will be available to play at a range of online casinos that offer Net Entertainment slots. The video preview can be viewed on the official Net Entertainment YouTube channel.

Prestigious online slot developer Playtech has released an official video preview of its upcoming slot release of White King this week.

White King is a 5 reel, 40 pay-line slot that has a theme based on a white lion. The reels are set against an epic sweeping background and the symbols on the reels include wildlife such as the white lion himself, a white lioness, white lion cubs, a crown, a golden eagle, and the regular 9-through-to-Ace symbols.

Players can enjoy the game for as little as 40p per spin and there is also a riveting Turbo Mode that allows players to increase the speed at which the reels will spin so that players can experience more action in a shorter period of time.

White King also comes with Stacked Wilds with the Wild symbol represented by the white lion. This will substitute for all other symbols, except for the White King logo Scatters, to complete winning combinations.

If players manage to hit three or more White King logo Scatters across the reels then this will trigger the Majestic Night Free Spins Bonus. This will see players earn 5 free spins with the potential to trigger additional free spins with an infinite number of re-triggers available. The Stacked Wilds are also included in the free spins bonus round.

A lot of excitement is surrounding this upcoming with Playtech enjoying a positive 2014 thus far following the successful releases of the sun, sea, and sand slot Sunset Beach and the World Cup fiesta slot Football Carnival.

The video preview for White King is available to view on the official Playtech YouTube channel right now.

A lucky mobile slots player was celebrating becoming an instant millionaire this week after triggering the €2.5 million progressive jackpot on popular mobile slot title Mega Fortune Touch.

Mega Fortune Touch is a 5 reel, 25 pay-line mobile slot release of the iconic Mega Fortune slot from Net Entertainment. The online version of the slot holds the record for the largest ever online slots win when one player triggered a staggering €17 million progressive jackpot.

Chief Product Officer at Net Entertainment Simon Hammon said “It’s so exciting that this Mega Fortune jackpot was won using a mobile device. Players can now become millionaires, even while on the bus or taking a walk in the park. Congratulations to Leo Vegas and the player on this epic win!”

Online betting exchange Betfair has announced that it has added Net Entertainment-developed slots to its ever-growing portfolio of online slots.

Social casino gaming developer Plumbee has announced the re-launch of its iconic Mirrorball Slots on the iOS platform.

The re-launched Mirrorball Slots now has the name Mirrorball Slots: Kingdom of Riches and it is hoped the re-branding of the popular slots title will attract a new audience as well as maintain its strong following.

A re-launch, as opposed to a re-integration, was opted for by Plumbee after market research suggested that there was scope for a boost in new customers if the Mirrorball Slots brand was completely overhauled.

Four new game titles including Firestorm, Sinbad, Supernova, and Treasure Island have been added to the new Mirrorball Slots: Kingdom of Riches and other improvements include improved flexibility, a more solid technological base, and a fresh look and feel.

Plumbee CEO Raf Keustermens said “The team worked flat out over the last month to ship this product and the result is truly amazing, it is now really one of the strongest mobile slots games out there.”

Keustermens added “With this re-launch of our iOS slots app we have now firmly established Plumbee as a multi-platform company.”
