Playtech released the first slot machine for Live Casino
CompanyPlaytech developed and introduced a new format of gambling entertainment in the concept of Live Casino. The provider offered gamblers to bet on the video slot during a live broadcast of the game session from the studio with the participation of the presenter. The project was called Live Slots, and the first game chosen for the show wasBuffalo Blitz, released by Playtech in mid-2016.
Live Slots turns an ordinary video slot into a collective interactive entertainment. According to the developers, this is how groups of friends or outsiders of land-based casinos gather around one slot machine to cheer on a lucky gambler. Unlike the described situation, Live Slots can be bet on by several players at once.
The session starts by choosing the total limit and the number of spins, after which the reels automatically spin every few seconds. The host in the studio comments on what is happening on the screen and encourages gamblers to join the game. Now the developers have launched Buffalo Blitz with only one title of their own production, but in the future they plan to expand the line of live slot machines.
"Live Slots is really new a concept in the gambling industry that offers online casino customers an immersive gaming experience and creates a cross-sell opportunity for operators,” said Kevin Kilminster, Head of Innovation for Playtech Live.
"The popularity of live streaming demonstrates the player's need for interaction. This is the experience that you can get when playing with other people in a land-based casino.”
At the same time as Live Slots, the developers presented a new version of Quantum Blackjack with live dealers. A distinctive feature of the game was the presence of a multiplier, which is determined in the additional hand. The multiplier is up to x10, which can result in winnings of up to 1,000 times your original bet if you win in the base game.
Kevin Kilminster expressed his hope that the new version of the live dealer card game will be as popular as the one that came out formerly Quantum Roulette. The head of innovation also noted that 2019 was a breakthrough year for Playtech Live - the developers deliberately focused on creating exciting gambling games that would be different from traditional versions.
