Williams Interactive, the online gaming subsidiary of Scientific Games Corporation, has added two new slot games to its Games Server Library which are now available to the supplier’s European clients.

Williams Interactive has rolled out Fire Queen and Wizard of Oz Wicked Witches. Fire Queen is powered by the company’s Double Money Burst game engine, which first went live with the company’s Elvis: The King Lives slot.

The game features wilds that transfer between the dual 2X2 symbol sets, and a special bonus that can be triggered in seven different ways.

Wizard of Oz Wicked Riches becomes Williams’ third title based around the classic film. The 5-reel slot comes with Winged Monkey and Wicked Spins bonus features and a special Tornado Feature. The feature is randomly triggered, and gives players the chance to win one of four special jackpots.

Williams director of casino products Tom Wood said he was thrilled to have rolled out the new games.

“After the initial success of Elvis: The King Lives, Fire Queen expands our portfolio of games under the Double Money Burst game engine,” Wood said. “In contrast, the Wizard of Oz Wicked Riches provides the timeless experience of a 5-reel mechanical game under a world-famous brand.

“Whether players are looking for innovative or classic slot games, our newest games offer something for multiple player tastes,” he added.

Each product is immediately available for Williams’ clients integrated with the company’s Remote Game Server.

Last week, slot machine manufacturer International Game Technology (IGT) announced that its new multistate Wide Area Progressive (WAP) jackpot link would be deployed at Caesars and Boyd gaming properties.

The Powerbucks system links progressive jackpots in multiple states. The system is being rolled out in New Jersey and Nevada to start, with other “approved jurisdictions” to be added. Players from the member states contribute to and can win the progressive jackpot.

Like in online poker, progressive slots benefit from larger pools—“life-changing” wins are powerful marketing tools, be they progressive jackpots or large multi-table tournaments. Both benefit from from cross-border liquidity.

However, the new IGT progressive is not a signal for cross-border sharing of online poker liquidity.

“[The multistate progressive jackpot] is dissimilar to online poker liquidity in that players are not actively playing against each other in one game,” Nevada Gaming Control Board Chairman, A.G. Burnett told pokerfuse.

Like online poker tournaments, “the prize grows based upon collective play and is eventually won by one participant in one of the linked member states.”

However, Burnett stated, “this notion does not allow for game data crossing state lines, only incremental jackpot amounts are shared.“

Player pooling is still coming to US states—but compacts need to be formed. Nevada has entered into an agreement with Delaware to allow players from each state to participate in cross-border online gaming. It is not yet clear when this will take place—or by whom, as no online poker room operates in both states.

New Jersey is watching closely, and will form a compact this year according to its lead online gaming consultant.

A new Judge Dredd video gaming slot is to be designed by Australia-based NextGen Gaming.

The exclusive licensing deal means the company will create online slots featuring 2000 AD's Judge Dredd character that will be released this summer.

It is understood the agreement will cover the licensing of online and mobile slots and bingo games in all formats for international markets.

NYX Gaming's Scott Smith said: "We're proud to be working with one of the greatest comic characters of all time in bringing a multi-featured, richly branded gaming experience online with Judge Dredd."

David Johnson, commercial director at NYX Gaming, added that Judge Dredd’s infamous no-nonsense style of law and order will work well with NextGen's strong record of providing great game play.

He also expects the title will prove very popular with players and the Judge Dredd-themed games will become "the summer blockbuster title".

В этом руководстве вы найдете некоторые основные рекомендации по выбору хорошего онлайн-казино, которое подойдет вам больше всего.

Выберите свою любимую игру в казино. Различные онлайн-казино специализируются на разных играх, поэтому это первое, что вам нужно проверить.

Этот этап важен в зависимости от того, где вы находитесь в мире. Скорость загрузки и запуска онлайн-игр различается в разных онлайн-казино. Они используют разные игровые платформы, что влияет на качество онлайн-игр и скорость загрузки. Если у вас быстрое соединение, это менее важно, но если у вас ограниченная линия, вы должны проверить это перед совершением депозита на реальные деньги.

Выбирайте в зависимости от бонусов. Какие бонусы принесут вам наибольшую пользу? Различные сайты онлайн казино предлагают разные виды бонусов. Кроме начального бонуса регистрации, есть некоторые, которые работают на основе накопления очков, VIP-бонусов, бонусов турнирных списков и многого другого. Решите сами, что принесет вам наибольшую пользу в долгосрочной перспективе.

Языковая доступность. Если английский не является вашим основным языком, вы можете поискать онлайн-казино, которое предлагает всю информацию на вашем родном языке. Вы обнаружите, что когда вы играете в Техасский Холдем и рассчитываете свои шансы, столкнуться с незнакомым словом или фразой не очень приятно.

Ищите обзоры онлайн-казино. Существуют профессиональные сайты, которые сами проверили эти онлайн-казино и написали об этом. Наслаждайтесь их опытом, но всегда обращайтесь к нему как к рекомендации. Помните, то, что они считают лучшим казино для них, может не показаться вам таким же.

Ищите мнения пользователей о онлайн-казино, которое вы просматриваете. Поиск любых плохих отзывов или проблем, упомянутых.

Попытайтесь связаться со службой поддержки перед входом. Проверьте их скорость ответа, их профессионализм и все, что важно для вас, когда дело доходит до поддержки на сайтах онлайн-казино. Есть несколько сайтов, которые предлагают бесплатный номер телефона из любой точки мира.

Сначала внесите себя в бесплатный аккаунт. Попробуйте поиграть в некоторые игры, общаться с другими игроками и протестировать столько бесплатных игр, сколько они вам дают. Это лучший способ определить, как будет выглядеть аккаунт на реальные деньги на этом сайте.

Бонус за регистрацию заставляет многих новых игроков начинать с относительно большой суммы денег. Не вкладывайте больше в то, что вы можете позволить себе потерять. В большинстве случаев вы проиграете до того, как начнете выигрывать.

The findings of Traffic Generation’s social agents survey show that more than 60 per cent of players prioritise game quality, while 67 per cent would consider social casino games.

The results suggest the majority of social casino players prioritise the slots games they play over many of the social hooks surrounding them.

TraffGen CEO Andy Caras-Altas said: “This reinforces the importance of quality game play experience, and critically, game maths.

“As we have seen in previous surveys, this provides an opportunity for land-based slots makers who have games that are both recognised by the players, especially in the US market, and have proven mathematics, to acquire players from apps that place less of a focus on quality game content.”

Players were also asked: would you like to go on an adventure in a slots app, where you might encounter other characters and take part in a story as part of your game play? Sixty-seven per cent of respondents replied “Yes”.

Caras-Altas said of the replies: “Respondents to our question are clearly positive towards increased engagement in the narrative component of an app. How app developers respond to this desire from the players will be interesting as it is not yet clear how much the players want to spend time in the meta game, rather than in the slots game.

“It is our opinion though that there is an opportunity to explore new app configurations and meta features and to test them with live player communities.

“Key will be how this is balanced against the majority of players' preference to play high-quality slots content,” he added.

The findings also indicated that players are open to 3D slots games but that the majority still prefer 2D experiences.

Online slots fanatics can expect a host of new casino games before the end of 2014, according to Microgaming. The gaming software developer confirmed that two new online slots games are scheduled to launch at online casinos affiliated with Microgaming later this year – with both games based off popular franchises.

The most anticipated game in development is based off the popular HBO series ‘Game of Thrones.’ The game will supposedly be based off the complex plots and characters within the series, and is expected to be live before the end of the year.

The partnership was announced by representatives of both Microgaming and HBO Licensing, with both parties expecting fans will respond positively to the new game. Microgaming also confirmed that the Game of Thrones slots will go live after the Terminator 2 online slots, which is expected to be available in the summer.

Roger Raatgever, CEO of Microgaming, says acquiring gaming licenses from some of the world’s leading media franchises is important for the online gambling world. Raatgever expects that Microgaming will continue negotiating gaming licenses with other franchises in the coming months and years.

“We are incredibly excited to have signed a licensing agreement for Game of Thrones, a highly relevant and extremely popular show. We plan on taking all of the features of the small screen fantasy epic to create a masterpiece of a slot.”

Microgaming did not provide a target date to go live with the Game of Thrones slots game, but fans can bet that the game will be live in the fall.
