A Busy Week for Casino Software Providers
Quiet weeks in the online casino world seldom exist. This week, though, is particularly busy. ELK Studios, BetDigital, Red Tiger Gaming and Novomatic all unveiled new slots, but none of those games will make the headlines. Instead, it was what went down inside Microgaming, Net Entertainment and Playson that steal the show.
Fruits and Jokers Gets Revamped
Firstly, two new slots have been announced by Playson this week. The double whammy includes Wild Warriors and a revamped version of Fruits & Jokers.
Fruits & Jokers: 40 Lines made its debut at casinos offering Playson software this week and is notable for being a more extended and advanced edition of their simple, classic slot, Fruits & Jokers. Stacks of wilds, scattered star jackpot icons, and more lines than ever before are likely to impress fans of the original.
The big story is Playson’s new Wild Warriors slot. Unfortunately, players are going to have to wait until November 22 before they can spin those reels. On the upside, the slot looks as though it will be worth the wait. The 5-reel and 30-line slot costs 30p a spin and provides stacked wilds, free spins, colossal symbols, and a non-progressive jackpot worth over 670x your stake. All of that, of course, wrapped up in a Japanese samurai theme.

A Touch of Reality
Microgaming wasn’t going to sit back and do nothing when every other developer is unveiling new games. This week, the leading software provider announced the launch of Reel Talent. The game, a comedic take on two of Britain’s most loved reality shows (Britain’s Got Talent and The X Factor) features cute and cuddly contestants from the animal kingdom, as well as a fistful of special features on its 20 reels. These include:
- Wilds and scatters
- A three-tiered Super Spin bonus
- and a non-progressive jackpot worth over 600x your bet
NetEnt Does Business with William Hill
While we wait patiently for NetEnt to unveil their Narcos and Vikings slots this month (both based on hit TV shows), the Scandinavian casino software developers had some other news for us. They have recently signed a deal with William Hill.
The deal between the two powerhouses is set to see NetEnt offer live casino games at the popular UK sportsbook and casino site. Live roulette and Blackjack games are set to be unveiled at first, with other live NetEnt titles coming online later down the line. In a world where Evolution Gaming dominates the live casino industry (particularly in the UK), getting a stronger toehold in the UK online gambling scene by landing such a big name as William Hill is seen as a significant coup for NetEnt.
