Casino Game Make the Top 23 Facebook Games List

Posted by Gambling News | Casino News,Gambling News | Monday 3 February 2014 7:19 am

It has only been a couple of years since casino type games went live on Facebook. At one stage this social networking site would not even allow casino game ads at their site. It appears that they have seen the error of their ways, and the effect of supply and demand now dictates what is popular or not.

In a recent list of the top twenty-three games played at this site, it seems that five of these are casino type games. Gaming in a social media type environment has grown in popularity, and grown exponentially for users at many of these sites. So, the 2013 top “Games of the Year” list was put together based on a selection of criteria. Facebook complied data from "user ratings, implementation, growth and overall quality."

The increase in mobile social media activity has also seen an increase in gaming, and gambling over this channel. This led to the fact that many in the top twenty-three can be enjoyed on both Internet and mobile platforms. Pundits are saying that approximately $12 million will be spent on mobile gambling this year (2014), so, the possibility exists that 2013 mobile growth may have contributed to the Facebook growth in gaming popularity. Hence the reason why five gambling games also made it into their favourites list.

Most online gambling operators are not surprised by the fact that despite the diversity of games available in this space – Hit it Rich Casino Slots, Double Down Casino, Slotmania, DoubleUCasino, and Heart of Vegas, made it to the top. Hit it Rich Casino was also dubbed the Best New Game of the Year. Consumer behaviour seems to be dictating that the Facebook space will soon be inundated with popular online gambling games.

We are not in the least bit surprised by this latest list. The online gambling industry has turned into a mainstream industry Globally, and looks set to grow even more with doors opening in the USA. There are still quite a few global market places that still remain untapped, and with the spread of high speed broadband into Southern American Countries, Africa and Asia, even more growth is bound to be the order of the day. Add to this the fact that mobile, and smartphone use is spreading across the world, and it appears as though the industry might be in for a nice growth surprise. In fact this growth has been speculated on, but could even turn out to be better than the industry is betting on.

Award Winning Net Entertainment Nabs More EGR B2B

Posted by Gambling News | Casino News,Gambling News | Tuesday 25 June 2013 4:38 pm

The very first time we saw Net Entertainment (NetEnt)games and websites, it was hard not to believe that this online gambling, gaming developer was not going to do big things. They have since divested themselves of operations in this field, to concentrate on development as well as turnkey solution for the industry from a back office perspective. Dropping the gambling website business meant ridding themselves of “conflict of interest” issues, and they have gone from strength to strength since then. Every operator who is anybody should want NetEnt games on their websites.

Already an award winner, this prominent Swedish software provider for online casinos has landed a hat-trick at the recent EGR B2B Awards. Any player in this industry wants these prestigious awards in their trophy cabinet, and NetEnt took three! These awards are:

  • Innovation in Slot Provision
  • Innovation in Mobile
  • Mobile Supplier of the Year

This company’s commitment in the development of a top-notch mobile platform has paid off, for sure. “Touch” (the mobile platform) is thought to be the best in the business, and the awards it has won contests to that. The online gambling audience is now more sophisticated than ever before, and amore players move to the convenience of mobile to play on the go, NetEnt products adapt to this growing demand. Players want quality mobile casino games, and quality is what they get.

The Award for innovation in slots provision is highly commendable too – if you have not seen their great games – do yourself a favour and check out: Jack and the Beanstalk, Gonzos Quest, BloodSuckers, Egg-o-matic, Zombies, Starburst, Evolution, Jack Hammer…there are just so many to choose from.

Per Eriksson – the President and CEO of Net Entertainment, was understandably thrilled to share this good news with the industry. He said that "Innovation is at the core of everything we do and these three prestigious industry awards are a product of all the team’s hard work." He also commented that their team had been focussing heavily on mobile development during the past eighteen months, and this focus had paid off.

Mobile is without any shadow of a doubt a high growth area, and being regarded so highly at the EGR B2B Awards will only stand the brand in good stead for a very good future. These awards recognise achievements across all e-gaming segments, including networks, payment solutions, IT and infrastructure, mobile gaming, software, and so on.

Whilst speaking of Net Entertainmednt, you might also be interested to know that another recent BIG win took place on Mega Fortune™. It paid out a handsome prized of €5.3 Million at BetVictor Casino during the May Bank Holiday weekend. This prize was the 4th biggest in their history.

Online Slots In The UK – Check Out Little Britain

Posted by Gambling News | Casino News | Friday 24 May 2013 1:07 pm

It does not matter if you are the only gay in the village, have got to check out the new online slot that is taking the UK by storm. This is the only game in the village as far as we are concerned, and it can be found and played at some of Great Britain’s best of breed gambling websites.

Little Britain Online Slot Game

It is an Ash Gaming powered slot, that takes die-hard fans of Little Britain back to when the series first played. A fresh look at a long-trending brand often gets us interested once again. The trend now for online video slots games to follow a popular cultural theme, has also become popular culture. We suppose we could say this is the zeitgeist of online gambling.

With five reels, thirty pay lines, and a ton of bizarre comedy thrown into the mix, we find a whole new meaning brought to the fact that playing slots should be fun. We are not sure if you remember the infamous series where David Walliams and Matt Lucas played a whole host of characters each?

Everyone has their favourites, but Dafydd – the only gay in the village – was certainly one of mine. Most of the most prominent characters are featured in the slot, that is Daffydd, Lou, Andy, Vicky, Marjory, Ann and a few more.

Probably the best thing about this online slot is there are five (yes 5) bonus rounds. These are the Vicky Pollard’s ASBO Bonus, the Big Gay Bonus (where players have to help clothe Dafydd), the Marjorie Dawes’ Fat Fighters Bonus, Emily Howards’ Lady Things Bonus, and our personal favourite, Lou and Andy’s Love It Bonus.

This slot offers hundreds of ways to win, with Anne as the wild icon, which greatly enhances winning combinations. There are scatter symbols, free spins and in-reel features, which all comes together nicely under the narration of Tom Baker. Wagers may be placed from as little at 30p (1p per line), to as much as £300, so, is suitable for all kinds of risk takers.

When bonus symbols line up on reels 1, 3 and 5, this triggers the bonus feature of the corresponding character. Let’s take the Vicky Pollard’s ASBO Bonus as an example. We get to choose the activities she takes part in, and the longer it takes her to say "yeah, but no, but yeah, but no", the better this is for the player. Essentially the longer she takes to decide, the better it is. An added feature to look out for in this bonus, is the speech bubble. Get lucky in this bonus round, and it is possible to land a prize of 750 x an initial wager.

Little Britain, is truly a Great British online slots game. Ash Gaming have once again pulled out all the stops!

This b rand has also recently announced a sponsorship deal with the BETFUZE Mobile Platform, which makes them an exclusive partner with one of the most innovative software platform for mobile gambling. The new platform is expected to have launched by late Spring 2013.

Mobile gambling for real money, to win real money prizes, has become one of the trendiest ways to play these games online today. BETFUZE is actually a sports betting specialist developer, but the new mobile platform will facilitate the playing of online casino games, sports betting, and multi-player poker on the go.

As well as being sponsored by All Slots Casino, the new mobile platform will also be sponsored by some of the biggest names in the British biz. At this point in time the names being dropped are Coral, William Hill and Ladbrokes. But currently the deal between BETFUZE and All Slots is still exclusive.

David Brickman who is the VP of All Slots Casino, had to Say about the new deal – that they are proud to be partnered with a product that they know is one of the most innovative platforms they have ever had the pleasure of seeing. Not only for this brand, but mobile is going to continue to be one the strongest growth channels seen in the online gambling genre for years. It makes good sense to have a great mobile gaming platform.

They believe the product is cutting-edge, and will help redefine how players relate and interact with their on the-go gaming experience. Obviously the product will also fans of the site take their gaming with them wherever they go; to be played whenever the mood happens to take them.

The mobile platform concept was built together by both partners, and is destined to raise the bar in terms of technological advancement, as well as quality of design. Paul McNea who is CEO as well as co-founder of BETFUZE says that their sponsorship partners have assisted them to develop the most sophisticated platform if its type available world-wide today.

The technology however, is only one side of the story, what they are truly looking for is high levels of client engagement. Working with some of the leading UK and European gambling concerns has meant that they can ensure seamless integration across a wide range of systems. The BETFUZE system has evolved into a fusion of facts, sentiment, contextual detail, and a wide range of diverse data to offer the player a techno rich, friendly user experience. Personally speaking, we can’t wait to give it a whirl.
