Top-rated gambling technology company Playtech has announced two new Live Casino variants, a first for the gambling industry. Live Slots and Quantum Blackjack are live network-wide, offering a new concept in the live gaming sector.
Two New Gaming Options:
Live Slots is a brand-new concept that takes traditional slot gaming and creates a collective experience. The title is the first live game to offer community spins, where players are enjoying a single game together. Set in a live studio, a host leads the game and provides commentary, which creates a game show style feel.
Slot play is brought to life in a completely different way with Live Slots, as players begin by choosing their playing limit, how many spins to play and bet per spin. Spins takes place every few seconds and the game offers extra spins bonusing which is a first for the live sector.
The second new game, Quantum Blackjack, is a multiplier based blackjack title, also a first for the industry. An extra draw takes place after wagering with up to three cards drawn. A 3x, 5x or 10x multiplier will be offered at random. If a player earns a special card in their hand, and they beat the dealer, the multiplier is provided as a boost to their win. There is potential to earn up to 1000x the stake.
Head of Innovation for Live Casino, Kevin Kilminster, commented on the year 2019 and new titles by stating: “2019 has been a remarkable year for the Playtech Live team, with a stronger focus than ever on experience-led innovation. Live Slots is a genuinely new concept within the industry, delivering an engaging new style of gameplay for players and creating an exciting cross-sell opportunity for operators. The popularity of live play streaming via social media demonstrates a player demand for an interactive feel – the experience you would enjoy when playing alongside others in a land-based casino. Live Slots recreates that feeling with a unique style of gameplay.
“Quantum Roulette has been one of Playtech Live’s biggest launches of the year, thanks to both its immersive visual atmosphere and the unique multiplier win concept. We’re confident that, as the first-to-market multiplier-based Blackjack game, Quantum Blackjack will prove equally popular and set the tone for future Quantum Releases.”
Kilminster also pointed out that Playtech launched over 20 more Live variants in 2019, including Casino Stud Poker and Dragon Jackpot Baccarat.
Adding Red Star Poker:
The announcement of the new Live Casino variants comes just a few weeks after the supplier announced an addition to their poker network. Back in November, the brand announced that their poker network added the Red Star Poker brand to their collection. A popular poker operator in Eastern Europe, Red Star is a nice addition to the overall poker offering of the Playtech group.
