Playtech Launches its all-new Live Slots & Quantum Blackjack
Playtech is a reputed software provider whose gaming products are very well admired in the online casino world. However, this popularity wasn’t accomplished overnight. It’s after years of hard work and sweat.
You’ll be fascinated to know that this fan-favourite manufacturer started its journey back in 1999 at Estonia with a small team. Since then, they have expanded tremendously and have grown to about 6000 people. And today, they boast multiple offices across 19 countries, with headquarters in the Isle of Man.
Interestingly, Playtech is also one of the few gaming providers to be listed on the LSE (London Stock Exchange).
Apart from this, they are always on the headlines for releasing new games every now and then. Even a few days back, they were in the news for introducing 3 new live casino games.
Their portfolio features a wide range of card games, live dealer games, table games, video poker, slot games, scratch cards, instant wins, lotteries, bingo, etc.
Having said that, late December, they announced the release of their new Quantum Blackjack and Live Slots games.
Playtech came up with the concept of Live Slots to make sure you:
- Have a real show feel
- Enjoy a new way of playing slots
- Have a collective gaming experience
Let me explain about both these games in detail.
Playtech’s Live Slots Game: Buffalo Blitz
This Live Slot game features an innovative cross-vertical concept, which turns the usual gameplay to a combined experience.
In fact, it is the industry’s first ever live game to have “community spins.” This means that you can also have other players participate with you as you play.
And guess what? All this takes place in a brilliant live studio and you’ll also have a host giving commentary and leading the game. How cool is that now?
Speaking of Buffalo Blitz now, the main aim is to take you on an energising journey through the wonderful natural habitats of the northern hemisphere.
And you’ll also come across some animal specimens like wild moose, grizzly bears, lynx cats, and raccoons.
Well, it may not be a lively place with some remarkable views for some, however, Playtech has taken huge efforts in showing what a good safari style slot game should be like.
Here are a few key details of this slot game to make a note of:
- Release Date: 19 December 2019
- Reels: 6
- Total Coins: 25
- Paylines: 4096
As far as the gameplay is considered, you start by choosing:
- Your overall limit
- Number of spins
- Bet per spin
Once you complete the above steps, the game automatically continues spinning in every few seconds. It also offers Free Spins bonusing – a concept that has never been introduced before and thus, makes Playtech to be the first ever provider to do so in the casino market.
Live Casino Game: Quantum Blackjack
Following the victory of Quantum Roulette, Playtech has made another big move by rolling out Quantum Blackjack, which is again industry’s first ever multiplier-based Blackjack. The gameplay takes place in an immersive studio space with brilliant soundtrack.
Here are a few details of this live casino game to make a note of:
- Release Date: 19 December 2019
- Played with 8 Deck Shoe
- Selection of up to 3 cards along with multipliers in every round
- Chance to get up to 1000x if you win
The game also includes an additional draw after the betting time, during which, you can draw up to 3 cards. These will be given randomly with x3, x5, and x10 multipliers.
And if you get any one of these 3 cards in your hand and win against the dealer, you will be paid based on the multiplier. Interestingly, you can win up to 1,000x your stake.
After these latest launches, Playtech Live Casino’s Head of Innovation – Kevin Kilminster said:
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.
He also added further by saying:
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.
Both new live products demonstrate the organisation’s persistent focus on creating “versatile and experience-led live gaming.”
It’s a genuinely new gaming concept, which not only meets all the entertainment needs but also delivers a new gameplay style for you to engage in. Apart from all these, it also creates a brilliant cross-selling opportunity for different operators.
Including Quantum Blackjack and Live Slots, Playtech has launched 20+ Live Casino variations since January 2019. The company also has great plans to raise this bar in 2020 by releasing more games to their Live Casino portfolio.
