Industry firsts are what Playtech specialise in – from Age of the Gods branded roulette wheels to an immersive live studio atmosphere, so it was no surprise to learn of yet another brand-new and unique gaming concept – Live Slots.
Shortly before Christmas, the global gambling giant unveiled two products; Quantum Blackjack which follows the success of the previously released Quantum Roulette and Live Slots and as you can probably guess, it involves playing slots in a live studio.
It may not sound totally exciting, but it is, trust me, I’ve had a few goes at this one and so too have many others. If you’re a fan of the Buffalo Blitz slot; the 6-reel, 4096 ways to win bonanza, you’ll love this. The reels of the game are identical to that of the standard slot, the only difference is you play in a studio with a live host with chat capabilities.
The brand-new cross vertical concept turns what is usually a solo gaming experience into a community one, and this is down to the ‘community spins’ feature. Three or more bonus spin logos will initiate the feature where you and all other participating players will reap the rewards of those spins…
…play the slot for free and hope to land even more spins and big cash.
Designed to bring that gameshow style feeling into your own home, I believe Buffalo Blitz Live Casino is only the first of many. The number of spins and bet per spin is entirely up to you – the player. Scatters, wilds, multipliers and all the usual features of the hugely popular game can now be found in online casino format. It’s engaging, fun and could potentially be extremely rewarding.
Kevin Kilminster, Head of Innovation for Live Casino, Playtech, added comments on the two new releases: “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. 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.
“Quantum Roulette has been one of Playtech Live’s biggest launches of the year, thanks to both its immersive visual atmosphere and the unique multiplier win concept. We’re confident that, as the first-to-market multiplier-based Blackjack game, Quantum Blackjack will prove equally popular and set the tone for future Quantum Releases. With more than 20 additional Live variants also launched this year, including American Roulette, Dragon Jackpot Baccarat, All Bets Blackjack and Casino Stud Poker to name but a few, everyone at Playtech is already looking forward to raising the bar even further in 2020.”
Buffalo Blitz Live Slots is now available to play at all major Playtech online casinos.
