The Gibraltar-based online casino operator, 32Red, has been declared Casino of the Decade by leading casino player watchdog and advocacy site, Casinomeister. Following six successive years as the Best Casino winner, the latest title rewards the firm’s consistent performance over the last 10 years.

During the last decade 32Red has featured regularly in award ceremonies and received prestigious nominations. As Casinomeister has highlighted in the past, and also in the company’s most recent award, 32Red has raised the bar for others to follow by pioneering a personal, transparent approach to player support and casino bonuses. In the official announcement, Bryan Bailey of Casinomeister said the following regarding 32Red’s achievements and new award:

"They (32Red) have maintained their focus since their launch: personable customer service, responsive and effective management, professional solid operations. Publicly traded, fully transparent, and they are bound by an ideology that is based on player satisfaction. These guys have a lot to be proud of…again"

32Red CEO, Ed Ware, was delighted by the award, commenting "the Casino of the Decade sits above all other awards in this year’s Casinomeister list and it’s one we receive with a great deal of pride. 32Red aimed to be here when we launched the online casino ( 32Red Casino ) and we’re honoured that, come the end of ‘naughties’, we’re right at the top of our industry".

Ware added that the company philosophy remains unchanged and that it will continue to drive the casino to new heights: "the numerous awards from Casinomeister in the past decade have shown that focussing on the player experience is valued where it matters most – the player’s themselves, which Casinomeister and the award represents. It is both justification of this philosophy and motivation to continue providing a service that really is second to none"

32Red Online Casino Launches Hellboy Slot Machine in January

Posted by Gambling News | Casino News | Saturday 16 January 2010 7:02 am

The award-winning 32Red Online Casino launches Hellboy – an online slot based on the acclaimed comic and films of the same name.

32Red Online Casino is poised to launch a slot that has been dubbed as groundbreaking this January, in an announcement made by the Gibraltar-based online gaming operator today.

The Hellboy slot is based on the hit comic book of the same name, with the graphical styling from the immensely popular book added to the game. The plot is high-octane stuff too, matching the adrenaline rush the two blockbuster movies induced for millions of moviegoers in 2004 and 2008.

Mark Quayle, Head of Marketing for 32Red, believes the Hellboy slot is set to become one of 32Red’s most popular slot machines:

"The addition of Hellboy to our casino means we’re able to offer players a number of themed slots with real star appeal, but none match Hellboy’s stylised graphics, stereo sounds and potent slot engine. From spinning the reels to entering the Underworld bonus, Hellboy offers players something special and, of course, a shot at the game’s "92,000 jackpot. It all makes Hellboy arguably one of the best slots in our online casino (32Red Casino) and the perfect way to start the New Year."

Hellboy is the creation of the talented Mike Mignola and Dark Horse Comics. A demon summoned by evil Nazi occultist during the Second World War, Hellboy ended up in Allied hands where he was raised as a "normal boy", despite being bright red and having to regularly file down his horns. He now fights for mankind against dark forces as part of the BPRD – Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense – where Hellboy forms the backbone and strength behind the team’s ongoing battle against evil. The 5 reel and 20 payline slot allows players to guide Hellboy through the darker reaches of the Underworld to free missing members of the BPRD and to the Relic of Power, with players winning cash throughout the journey.

Fans of Hellboy slot machine will no doubt relish the chance to guide their hero around the reels and through the bonus games, but Quayle insists the game’s graphics and performance will draw all casino game players to its reels as "Hellboy has all the gaming entertainment a player will ever need; an instantly recognisable theme, slick graphics, an immersive plot and the chance to win nearly £100,000".

Hellboy is due for release at 32Red on January 14th 2009 and is joined by two other new games in a casino that already boasts over 350 unique casino games.
