Ladbrokes Releases iOS Roulette and Blackjack Apps

                Ladbrokes is making it a bit easier for online gambling fans to enjoy their favourite games while on the go by releasing two new virtual casino applications. Developed in partnership with Realistic Games, Ladbrokes' Blackjack and Roulette are available for download on the iPhone and iPad now.
                Both of the gaming apps have been created by Realistic Games, a company with plenty of experience in crafting casino experiences meant to be experienced on mobile devices. The latest release from Realistic leverages the business' skills in order to provide Ladbrokes fans with fully featured, real-money blackjack and roulette iOS apps. The Ladbrokes Roulette app sports viewable game history records, 3D effects, authentic game sounds and customization options. The Blackjack app is also highly customizable, features animated card and chip models, lifelike sound and three betting boxes. Both of the apps can be downloaded from the Apple App Store by users in the United Kingdom.
                Andy Harris, Realistic Games' Commercial Director, said that the developer feels it has "created market leading iPhone Roulette and Blackjack apps" with its new Ladbrokes releases. John Pettit, Commercial Director for Ladbrokes, apparently agrees. He told press that his company is "delighted with the delivery of the Roulette and Blackjack apps," and used current download numbers — more than 1,000 downloads for the Roulette app alone were recorded only one day after launch — to demonstrate that the products "are already proving popular with our customers."

Bodog Casino Launches Go 3D for $3K Promotion

                Bodog Casino's latest promotional offering wants to help show off the online gaming site's new three dimensional slot machines by enticing players with a series of fantastic rewards. Members of the online gaming platform will be able to vie for extra loyalty points and participate in a cash draw by immersing themselves in the latest Bodog slots.
                Go 3D for $3K is already live on Bodog Casino and is set to run throughout most of this month. The promotion consists of two separate components — one that rewards extra loyalty points and another that provides a $3,000 prize draw. Bodog members can take advantage of the loyalty points boost by wagering money on any of the site's 3D slots. To help advertise these new games Bodog will be awarding 6 points for each $10 gambled on 3D slots, offering three times the regular rate of 2 points per $10. Each of the loyalty points earned by Bodog members doubles as an entry to the $3,000 draw that will be held at the end of the promotion. Only one lucky entrant will take home the $3K, but everyone can enter just by making wagers at new games like Gladiator, Viking Age, Gold Diggers, At the Movies and more.
                Bodog Casino helped sell the Go 3D for $3K promotion by enticing players with the prospect of losing themselves in slot games that let them "spend a night in Paris [and] scout out live animals in the African Wild" through "brand new 3D games" that provide great experiences while also "giving you a chance to make a nice chunk of change."     

32Red Becomes Official Crawley Town Football Club Sponsor

                Fans of football and online gaming will soon see two of their passions collide now that Crawley Town Football Club and internet casino 32Red have announced a business deal. This move will see 32Red acting as a sponsor for Crawley Town, emblazoning player shirts with their logo.
                32 Red has just completed a deal that will result in Crawley Town FC players wearing shirts that sport the casino's site logo throughout the next two years. This isn't the first time that the online casino has acted as a sponsor for a football club either. 32Red previously sponsored Aston Villa and Swansea City, both teams who went on to enjoy great success during the time their uniforms were branded with the site's logo. Mark Quayle, 32Red's Head of Marketing, said that his company is "delighted to support Crawley Town as they look ahead to their second season in League One" and that 32Red's "previous football sponsorships have been a great success."
                Quayle also acknowledged the link between 32Red sponsorship and Aston Villa and Swansea City's success, saying that he "[hoped ] the trend of 32Red being a 'lucky sponsor' continues" for Crawley Town FC. The league's Commercial Manager, Ewan Dunlop, expressed a similar sentiment, calling the sponsorship "a tremendous deal for the football club." Those interested in picking up a branded shirt can expect to see the redesigned apparel — available in adult sizes only — hitting store shelves in the near future.

                Bodog Casino's latest promotional offering is set to make the weekends a lot more exciting for members of the online casino platform. The new weekly event is sure to command plenty of attention by giving Bodog members not only the ability to increase the rate at which they collect Casino Points, but to take part in lucrative prize draws as well.

Even better, Bodog Casino will use every Casino Point earned by a player in a newly unveiled $1,000 prize draw. Each Casino Point will be converted to a single entry to the draw without any limits being placed on how many entries a member can accumulate in the lead-up to the prize giveaway. The Bodog Casino player who wins the prize draw will have $1,000 transferred to their account at the site.

                Sky Vegas is looking to make this summer a lot more exciting for its players through the launch of Megajackpots. The online casino's latest promotion is set to run through the coming months and will award a guaranteed £1 million by the time it wraps up.
                Entry to the Megajackpots promotion will be easy for Sky Vegas members.

William Hill Shows Revenue Growth for Early 2014

                Fans of William Hill's network of online gaming and betting sites should have no fear for the future of their platform of choice. The latest financial information released by the company shows that William Hill has continued to perform well throughout the first months of 2013.
                The last few months have been good to William Hill with new reports seeing its net revenues growing impressively. The gambling network released extremely impressive figures (for the financial period ending on 2nd April, 2013) that demonstrate success across a number of key areas of its business. These figures include growth in online net revenue (up by 21%), sportbook net revenue (up by 47%) and, most impressively, in mobile gaming net revenue (an astonishing 298% increase). William Hill's efforts at expanding its mobile presence — an area of concentration that has become increasingly important to the online gaming industry — have yielded incredible results. Entering the Australian market has also proven a smart idea for Will Hill, the country helping bolster the network's online operating profits by drawing in new players and punters.
                William Hill's CEO, Ralph Topping, told press that his company "has [had] a successful start to 2013" that includes "moving forward with our [business] strategy" and "taking full control of William Hill Online." Taking note of the most profitable aspects of his business, Topping stated that "mobile remains a high priority " before confirming that William Hill plans to continue "making significant investments in marketing, technology and people."

Once a site member has been entered into the VIP program they will be able to enjoy benefits that include doubled loyalty points on all cash wagers, weekly gameplay bonuses, special rewards, invitations to both online and real world live events and parties and, perhaps best of all, personalized customer service from Bodog Casino's support staff.

This initiative will see the platform offering regular prize draws and increasing the rate by which loyalty points are earned on promotional games. The restructure is set to make earning cash rewards up to "three times faster" than before.
                Bodog calls its 94 Club service a great way for "players [to] enjoy the best of everything Bodog." The current line-up of VIP perks and special offers certainly look to offer a great series of incentives for dedicated gamblers and a real draw to sign up to Bodog Casino.

bet365 Casino Adds New 3D Slot Games Developed by Sheriff Gaming

bet365 Casino members will now be able to enjoy an even larger catalogue of slot games as the popular online gaming network has begun releasing new 3D titles. These slots come as the result of a recently signed deal between bet365 and online game developer Sheriff Gaming.

The first batch of new titles to be added to bet365 Casino includes seven three dimensional slots (Dr. Magoo, Atlantis, Cars and Cash, Goldraider, French Cuisine, The Amsterdam Master Plan and Magical Forest). Each game has been designed by Sheriff Gaming, bringing the developer's well regarded software to bet365 Casino members. The new arrangement between Sheriff and bet365 has only just begun with the release of the seven new slots mentioned above. The supply deal agreed upon by both entities will see more titles from Sheriff Gaming's extensive catalogue brought to bet365 Casino in the months to come.

Steve Ibberson, Gaming Managing Director for bet365, said that the deal with Sheriff Gaming provided his company with "an excellent addition" to the site's catalogue and a great way to "evolve [bet365 Casino's] portfolio." Sheriff Gaming's spokesman, Eric Roskamp, added that his business is "extremely proud that our games have been recognized by bet365" and "confident that [the company] will be pleased with the reaction from its players." bet365 Casino plans to add further 3D slots in the future as part of its ongoing business relationship with Sheriff Gaming.

Virgin Games' Casino Redesign Goes Live, Introduces Several Changes

As previously reported Virgin Games has been acquired by Gamesys, its ownership transferring from the Virgin corporation to the online gaming provider and software developer. Part of the acquisition deal involved the redesign of Virgin Games' Casino, a move that has now been implemented and made available to site members.

Virgin Casino now features a new aesthetic that takes elements from the old site and updates them to better fit with Gamesys' vision. While the most immediately noticeable changes are cosmetic ones, Virgin's casino platform also features a number of structural adjustments. Virgin fans will likely be most surprised to find the main casino site split off from Virgin's slot offerings. The traditional casino section of Virgin Games has re-launched with a number of favourites (blackjack, video poker, roulette, baccarat and more) while the newly separate slots page includes the return of games like Star Trek: Against All Odds, Monopoly Plus and a few new additions such as Peggle Slots. Aside from these fairly significant changes, Virgin Casino will remain much the same in other areas. Gamesys has already told press that it plans to continue providing regularly scheduled promotions and maintaining the V* Points loyalty system.

Separating slots from the rest of the site most likely hints at the greater emphasis the new Virgin Casino will be putting on slot play, something that could lead to further site alterations in the future. Regardless of how this change shakes out, fans and industry observers alike will definitely be watching how Gamesys positions their newly acquired online gaming network in the weeks and months to come.

Bet365 Casino Adds New, Weekly Monday Promotions

bet356's Casino has just launched a new promotion that is set to make Mondays a little more tolerable. With competitors able to vie for up to £100 in deposit bonuses fans of bet365's online casino site may now have reason to actually get excited about the start of the work week.

The recently unveiled promo, "I DO Like Mondays", has been designed as a way to give back to bet365 Casino's most loyal fans. Each week will see certain players provided with 100 percent deposit matching bonuses based on site activity. These bet365 Casino members will be chosen by site administrators who survey active accounts to determine the players who most deserve a reward. Those who have played bet365 Casino's games most over the previous week will be eligible for full matching bonuses of either £25, £50 or £100. Simply put, the more a bet365 member plays the better a chance they have at winning some extra cash to wager at the site.

A press release from bet365 Casino said that the new I DO Like Mondays promotion offers "a great opportunity to enjoy over 150 exciting games" such as slots, video poker, roulette, blackjack, card games and much more. With a weekly opportunity to take home up to £100 in spending money bet365 Casino may be right in adding that "Mondays could quickly become your new favourite day."

William Hill Casino Awards Mobile Player wins Enormous Cash Prize

William Hill's mobile casino client has just provided one lucky player with an incredible windfall. The gambler in question, a man from east London, is now the recipient of the largest payout recorded through Will Hill's mobile platform to date.

While playing the iPhone version of William Hill's Leprechaun's Luck game after breakfast the soon-to-be winner, a 28 year old supermarket employee, triggered an enormous £341,259 cash prize after wagering only £12. The fortunate play session was well timed, too, taking place on 9th December — just in time for the 2012 holiday season. The unnamed winner said that the win meant that "all [his] Christmases have come at once" and went on to add that he would be treating his family to a number of unexpected gifts. He also planned to purchase a new BMW and take his family to India on holiday, but returned to his regular job after taking only a handful of days off from normal life.

William Hill's Mobile Director, Juergen Reutter, told press that the Londoners' "monster win is our biggest ever mobile payout and [one of the] largest in the history of mobile gaming." Reutter also spoke to the rise of portable gaming, noting that "more customers are playing our games via mobile devices" and that William Hill predicted seeing "someone winning a million with us in 2013."

While the global economy may not be at its strongest, online gaming networks Paddy Power and 888 have just shared figures that demonstrate that they're remaining unaffected by the recession. Reports from the two companies show that their earnings in the first half of 2012 increased, demonstrating a sunny future for two of online gaming's most popular brands.
      's 2012 has been a good one, its key financial indicators showing a 21% increase in revenue alongside boosts in other important areas. A 2% decline in 888's bingo revenue has done little to slow the company down. Brian Mattingley, 888's CEO, was happy to discuss his business' favourable first half of the year. Mattingley said that much of the success comes from a "tremendous increase in customer numbers" and credited "improvements in [888's] product offering."

Sky Vegas Adds Crown Jewels Slot Game to Software Line-Up

Sky Vegas has done a fantastic job of establishing its online casino as the premier destination for players who look for variety in their gameplay. The site’s line-up of virtual slots has now grown a little bit more as Sky recently added a brand new game to its catalogue.

Sky Vegas Adds to Games Roster with Hi-Lo Poker

Sky’s massively popular online gaming network continues to offer players plenty of reasons to stick around, this time in the form of a brand new game. The addition of Hi-Lo poker to the site gives members of Sky’s casino platform a fresh take on a classic style of play.

Each of the recent additions comes with a game show theme, Sky grabbing up licenses including Who Wants to be a Millionaire?, Wheel of Fortune, Deal or No Deal, Catchphrase, Family Fortunes and The Price is Right. The games have been designed with their source material in mind, giving players the opportunity to compete in virtual representations of their favourite shows. Deal or No Deal, for example, sees competitors picking the game box they think a prize may be within before continuing to open subsequent boxes without choosing a higher value by mistake. The game banker will, much like the show’s host, attempt to buy off the player’s box, leading to the same kind of high-stakes tension that the source material provides. Games like Family Fortunes, on the other hand, are closer to traditional slot titles, complete with multiple paylines, multipliers and bonus game triggers.

Players who are interested in taking Sky Vegas’ new game show titles for a spin are being encouraged by the site’s current sign-up promotion which provides a complimentary £5 to get started with.

PKR Casino Announces the Addition of 3D Software for Select Games

The software behind’s online poker site has lead to critical and commercial acclaim since its launch. Now, members of PKR’s casino offshoot will be able to enjoy the same, high level of quality as the company has announced the addition of three dimensional versions of some of its most popular games.

PKR Casino looks to be expanding its services in much the same way as its poker-based sister site, most likely hoping to garner the same type of attention that its previous implementation of 3D technology has attracted. Fans of the site will now be able to play site favourites like blackjack, Casino Hold’Em and Caribbean Stud Poker with all of their favourite gaming features translated into more graphically impressive versions. Along with the revisions of these games, PKR Casino’s update has also added in nine new avatar emotes, eleven new hairstyles (for both female and male avatars), improved virtual agent customer support, synchronized tournament breaks and more.

Leon Walters, PKR Casino’s Chief Operating Officer, told press that the decision to add 3D software to the site came as part of a continuing effort to provide “realistic, immersive and engaging games that put players at the heart of the action.” His statement outlined the full range of platform improvements while adding that PKR is “confident that [the updated games will] prove to be hugely popular additions.” Further updates to PKR Casino are expected to arrive throughout future months as well.

888 Launches New Online Casino Platform

Fans of 888 Casino will be happy to hear that their online gambling network of choice has just updated with a new software version that works to increase site usability and improve performance. The designers of the platform revision have added in a bevy of new features and customization options meant to help 888 players get the most from their experience on the site.

The updated version of 888 Casino includes behind the scenes improvements that provide greater speed and feature access. Probably the most interesting aspect of the 888 Casino redesign, though, is the focus on personal customization features. Members of the site will now be able to personalize their lobby view, adding shortcuts that link to their favourite games (with either icon or grid view formats) and saving their changes for future use. 888 has also altered their scrolling and filtering options to make finding preferred game styles easier and has added options that allow players to change screen resolution, game layouts, set slots to automatic play and more.

Players interested in checking out the new 888 Casino software will also be greeted by a number of giveaways as the site looks to grab even more attention by offering promotional bonuses to its players throughout the rest of March. A statement from 888 Casino described the software update as “bigger, better and faster than it ever was” and the changes certainly seem to make good on that claim.

Betfred Casino Awards Player with the UK’s Largest Progressive Jackpot Prize

An anonymous member has just received an enormous windfall that made them much, much richer while also setting the record for the United Kingdom’s largest progressive jackpot prize.

The life-changing jackpot provided the unknown Betfred player with some £5.1 million, an amount awarded after the site member had staked only £1 on a slot game. The anonymous player sat down to a game of Beach Life and, after only six spins of the virtual slots, had triggered the staggering progressive jackpot — an amount that had been steadily building in size before being won. With such a large prize needing to be claimed, the winner was required to receive the multi-million pound cheque in person from Betfred’s founder Fred Done, receiving a trip aboard Done’s private jet. Even more extraordinary is the anonymous player’s earlier luck. Before winning the £5.1 million Beach Life jackpot, s/he had scored £250 through the King Kong slot. Later in the day, the winner became the recipient of the third largest progressive slot jackpot in the entire world.

Done spoke to press about the milestone jackpot, describing his enthusiasm as a bookmaker for “turning someone into a multi-millionaire at the click of a mouse” while adding that “it just goes to show it’s always worth trying your luck.” Players who want to take a shot at winning their own fortune should head to Betfred now to play at Gold Rally, the biggest progressive jackpot (at £838,000) currently available at the site.

New Jackpot Cashdrops Promotion from Sky Vegas Rewards Bonus Cash

A new promotion from Sky Vegas aims to give a handful of the online casino’s players a great cash reward. Jackpot Cashdrops, the promo in question, will make ten of the site’s members a bit richer through a prize that looks to kick back bonus money every time a progressive jackpot is hit.

The entry requirements for Jackpot Cashdrops are very minimal. Sky Vegas only asks players to spend a bit of time doing what they already come to the site to do — enjoy games — in order to become eligible for a cash prize. Jackpot Cashdrops works by kicking back a portion of £1,000 in bonus money each time a Sky Vegas jackpot of £50,000 or higher is triggered. The ten recipients of this money are chosen at random from any player who has sat down to one of the site’s progressive jackpots during the seven days leading up to its big payout. A large number of slots from across the Sky Vegas platform are part of the promo, letting members choose from popular options like Deal or No Deal, Blockbuster Drop, Planet X, Alice’s Wonderland, Chests of Plenty, Pharaoh’s Treasure, Kung-Fu Cash, Caribbean Nights and more.

A statement from Sky Vegas went on to describe just how easy it is to participate in Jackpot Cashdrops, asking site members to “simply [play] their favourite progressive jackpot slot” throughout the promotion period.

Betfair Casino Reveals New, Atari-Themed Slot and Dice Games

Fans of vintage videogames will be pleased to see that Betfair’s casino site has just released a new game based on a classic Atari football simulator. The latest addition to the online gaming network’s virtual slots line-up is Sensible Soccer, based on the classic game, and is currently available alongside three new entries to the Poker Cubed series.

Betfair Casino’s Sensible Soccer is a five reel, 25 payline slot with special bonus features. It’s branded with elements from the much loved Sensible Soccer videogame, first released by Atari in 1992, and is meant to appeal to a wide fanbase still nostalgic for the title. Betfair Casino’s version offers up a bonus feature (called Euro Cup) that lets competitors place wagers on different football teams before matches are decided through virtual tournament play. If a bet is placed on a team that achieves ten or more goals the player will trigger “an unlimited progressive jackpot.” Betfair has also released three new competitive dice games as part of its Poker Cubed series. These titles include Dice Hold ‘Em (a spin on Texas hold ‘em where dice stand in for cards), Shoot the Moons (where players bet on the highest numbered dice roll) and Liar’s Dice (a betting game based on one played in the Pirates of the Caribbean films).

Betfair is enthusiastic about its new games — and the innovative Poker Cubed in particular. A company statement described how the dice game “offers a challenge to veteran card players and newcomers alike.”

32Red and Sky Vegas Players Win Big at Online Casino Slot Games

The casino offerings from online gaming networks 32Red and Sky Vegas both awarded its members with some of the largest cash rewards to be reported this year. Each of the site’s slot machines recently paid out enormous amounts to lucky players, making a landmark for early 2012.

32Red’s winner struck it big on 9th January, within the same day of registering at the virtual casino site. The player deposited £40 and sat down to play video poker through the Supajax progressive jackpot — a game based on the popular Jacks or Better style of play. Shortly after starting the game, the 32Red player triggered the progressive jackpot to win more than £50,000 in cash. Sky Vegas also awarded an enormous cash prize to one of its members through its Leprechaun’s Luck slot game. The five reel, 20 payline title provides the chance to win large sums through its two bonus rounds. Triggering these can lead to winning the slot’s progressive jackpot — which one lucky player did before receiving a windfall of £147,000 in cash.

32Red told press that the money came “as a big shock” to the Supajax winner, as she or he had “created an account with us [only] 13 hours prior to playing.” Sky Vegas released a statement that detailed its winner’s £147,000 prize, describing it as “a mammoth reward for the very humble one pound used on the game” by the player.

Sky Vegas Unveil New Casino Promotion that Helps Players Offset Losses

Sky Vegas, the Sky network’s casino offering, has announced the launch of a brand new promotion that aims at helping to offset its players’ bad breaks. This new promo gives Sky’s members the ability to try to recoup some of their losses in a special event running for the rest of January.

From now until the end of the month Sky Vegas players can opt in to be eligible for the ongoing promotion. After signing on to participate these players only have to play during each of the six days of the event for their chance to win. Those who are picked from the pool of eligible members will be credited with a refund that puts ten percent of their total losses back into their accounts. The refunded amount will, of course, vary from player to player but even the most serious casino competitors have been considered as Sky will provide winners with amounts up to £500. The promotion, a great chance for Sky Vegas members to take the sting out of some of their casino losses, should help drum up activity for the site in the week to come.

Sky Vegas, in a statement detailing the new, cashback promotion, also took the time to run through some of the games most recently added to its site. Some of the highlights include its new Deal or No Deal licensed game, the Leprechaun’s Luck slot and the upcoming Cash Cauldron.

Virgin Games Launches Mobile Casino Software

Virgin Games is one of the UK’s most popular online gaming networks and now, with the launch of its mobile casino software, it’s looking to catch on in an even bigger way. The new Virgin Mobile Games has just been released and gives players the ability to enjoy some of their favourite casino games while on the go.

The app, (or Virgin Mobile Games for brevity’s sake), was developed in a partnership between Somo, a mobile marketing agency, and Virgin itself. The mobile software translates much of what already exists on Virgin’s web-based casino and seeks to offer a similar experience through smartphone operating systems. Aside from a suite of great Virgin games, the company has also announced that it has forged partnerships with other developers — including titles by Microgaming — in order to bring even more content to the platform over time. Virgin Mobile Games is a web application, compatible with most smartphones and already features games like the popular Tomb Raider and Thunderstruck slots.

Virgin Games’ Chief Executive Officer, Simon Burridge, explained that “smartphone penetration now [exceeds] 40 percent in the UK” and that “[Virgin] is simply responding to this demand.” Burridge went on to state his company’s position, describing how the launch is occurring at “the right time in the company’s life, the industry’s life and [that] the technology is ready. It’s what our customers want and it’s where the online gaming industry is heading.”

Sky Vegas Unveils New Sky Millions Slot

Sky Vegas, one of the industry’s most popular online casinos, has just released its newest slot game with Sky Millions. The nine-payline, progressive jackpot slot allows Sky players to try their luck at becoming millionaires by wagering amounts as low as ten pence.

Sky Millions, now available at Sky Vegas, was created by software developer, Cryptologic Limited, and features nine paylines, bonus rounds and a progressive jackpot. The slot has been designed by Sky and Cryptologic with big cash awards firmly in mind and looks to provide enormous winnings to the virtual casino’s players in a similar fashion to its Millionaires Club. Sky Millions features expensive items on its reels (including diamond ring, fancy car and boat symbols) and is staked from 10p/line and up. Players are able to bet on any number of lines and view the potential payout they’re eligible for by visiting an on-screen information menu. Bonus rounds are triggered by three scatter symbols appearing on reel one, three or five. The extra round then displays three spinning wheels that multiply a staked bet. The multiplier is listed on each wheel alongside arrow signs that advance the player inward — once all three arrows are hit the bonus round is over.

Many are likely to be excited about taking Sky Millions for a spin, especially considering just how successful Millionaires Club has been in the past, creating two millionaires in a bit less than two years of operation. To help promote the launch of Sky Millions, Sky Vegas is currently offering a bonus sign-up offer (worth £5) for use with the new slot.

Paddy Power’s Casino Offering Updates with Playtech Software

Paddy Power, one of the internet’s most popular gaming networks, has just given its fans a new reason to log onto their favourite service: a software overhaul that looks to improve on the casino site’s gaming line-up and usability. The Paddy Power re-launch makes use of software developer Playtech’s library of titles and proven talent in creating new online games.

The site improvements, now available for Paddy Power members to try out for themselves, were launched this week as part of a site-wide makeover. Playtech’s technology has updated the network’s range of casino titles (including new table and card games and slots) and introduces branded content across the sites as well. Paddy Poker’s Cristopher Coyne and Denise Dunne told press that “Playtech was chosen following a rigorous selection process” and that it believes the new software “will significantly enhance our online offering.”

Playtech’s work with Paddy Power is sure to make the site’s range of betting and gaming options easier — and more enjoyable — to use than ever before. Combined with its announcement of a month-long Points Race promotion (which will award $10,000 and entry to the iPoker Online Poker Series), at its poker site, Paddy Power members are sure to be delighted with the new additions hitting the network this October.

Ladbrokes Bulks Up Game Line-Up Through Renewed Deal

Ladbrokes, operator of leading poker and casino gaming sites, has announced the conclusion of a deal that will see the addition of several new games to its service. As part of its deal Ladbrokes players are now going to be able to enjoy play that features some of the most beloved brands in the industry.

The deal in question saw Ladbrokes and its previous software provider, Microgaming renew their contract earlier this summer. This move has also given the former company access to titles from developers, Ash Gaming and Blueprint Gaming as part of its supply agreement. Members of the Ladbrokes network will now be able to play branded games that include Ash Gaming’s “Alice’s Wonderland”, “Midas Millions”, “Amazon” and “Pharaoh’s Treasure” along with Blueprint Gaming’s “Casper”, “Bejeweled 2”, “Zuma”, “Chuzzle” and “Viz.” These titles come from two of the best regarded developers working in the industry and should add some extra, quality fun to an already impressive selection of games.

It’s always exciting to see new titles added to gaming sites and fans of Ladbrokes are sure to be pleased with the newly expanded line-up. Ladbrokes’ Chief Executive Officer, Richard Glynn, told press that he believes the new additions “will complement our current and growing games portfolio” while Blueprint Gaming’s Matt Cole said that his company was “delighted to supply with leading slot-based content.”

Fans of Bodog’s unique brand of online casino play have been delighted to find an overhaul to their site of choice’s gaming lobbies. The massive gaming company surprised its players and industry observers alike by debuting a number of fresh new ideas that look to increase convenience, making for a more enjoyable time at the various slots and tables hosted at the site.

The recently unveiled Bodog Casino lobby facelift has affected the European, Canadian and United Kingdom iterations of the site, providing great new changes for players across a wide variety of regions. These redesigned lobbies allow members to make use of simpler navigation features, game previewing (in order to show what’s occurring in ongoing games a player may wish to join) and a revamped search bar feature. Outside of game lobbies, Bodog is also bringing live dealers to its Asian sites and is currently hard at work in setting up studios, hiring hosts and designing software that will bring this new feature to its casinos in the near future.

Bodog Casino’s renovated game lobbies are sure to be appreciated by both newcomers and long-time fans of the site, ready to see some changes come to the familiar software. There’s been even better news for those hoping for further improvements to Bodog as well; the company has announced that the lobby redesign is only the first step in what spokespeople have called “a multi-tiered revamp of the entire online casino experience [that will] become the industry standard.” Announces the Winner of ‘Diamond Valley’ Progressive Jackpot

One of’s biggest progressive jackpots to date has just been hit, providing one lucky winner with a massive influx of cash. Taking home some $277,000 in the matter of minutes, the newly rich slot player is already making plans for how to make the best use of his incredible windfall.

The progressive jackpot in question was accumulating on Bet365’s Diamond Valley, a five-reel and five-payline virtual slot machine. It was won by a site member playing under the handle ‘Fredrik J’, a player that registered to the site roughly five years ago. Fredrik J sat down to play a game like any other but, after lining up five reels of diamond mountain icons, realized he had won a huge prize. The player told that upon realizing that he had won the progressive jackpot he began to run around his apartment in excitement. Fredrik J said that he and his girlfriend are currently planning to purchase a house using the unexpected cash won through the slots.

Even though the Diamond Valley progressive jackpot has been won there are still many other fantastic prizes to be tried for at The site currently hosts a little more than 150 casino games and, of these, many are progressive jackpots. In the past Bet365 players have won amounts of $1.55 million (at the Gold Rally slots) and £101,705 (at the Wall Street Fever slots).

Sky Vegas Adds Banzai Challenge Slot

Sky Vegas, continuing its commitment toward providing its members with an unparalleled selection of games, has just announced the addition of a new title. Banzai Challenge gives players an exciting new five-reel slot, complete with unique play and fantastic prize opportunities.

The new Sky Vegas game is themed around the short-lived comedy show, Banzai. Challenge (which ran from 2001-2004) embraced gambling as part of its premise, making it perfectly suited to continuing its life as a slot title. Sky’s Banzai Challenge uses some of the show’s most popular features in its design, bringing Banzai cast members like Lady One Question and Mr. Shake-Hands-Man to the new slot. True to the spirit of Banzai, the game will allow players to place bets on the outcome of various scenarios drawn from the show (such as Celebrity Box of Death Dilemma and An Animal Scientific Experiment) and, if successful, receive multipliers of up to 2,000 times their line bet. Sky Vegas itself is helping to raise awareness of its new title through a number of special contests as well. The first will see two staffers engaging in a hot chili tasting challenge that lets fans of the company’s Facebook page place bets on the results in order to take home Sky Vegas vouchers.

Fans of Sky Vegas are sure to enjoy seeing yet another set of slots added to the site’s more than 170 games. Banzai Challenge has already been launched and will be the centre of a number of promotions throughout the coming months.

Paddy Power Rolls Out New Mobile Games

Paddy Power, an industry leading online gaming network, has always been quick to seize on opportunities that bring their service to as many players as possible. Now, in a recent move that follows this tradition, the company is expanding on its previous forays into mobile gaming by releasing even more titles for on-the-go users to enjoy.

The new mobile games from Paddy Power have been created in partnership with software developer, International Game Technology (IGT). IGT and Paddy, after months of work, have now announced a wide range of fresh games that include smartphone-ready iterations of Jacks or Better video poker, 20+ Blackjack, Cleopatra, Monopoly Multiplier and much more. IGT formed its interactive division, specializing in the creation of mobile gaming software, after it merged with WagerWorks and Million 2-1 last December. Paddy Power signed a deal with the developers shortly after this move and can be expected to release even more new portable titles through the partnership in the near future.

Paddy Power’s decision to embrace mobile gaming is part of the online gaming industry’s wider trend in transitioning to smartphone-user support. As sophisticated devices continue to become more popular with a wide range of users, Paddy and IGT appear to be in an ideal position for capitalizing on the growing market. Both the recent and upcoming Paddy Power releases are designed for use with iPhones, iPads, the iPod Touch and Android smartphones.

Paddy Power Offers Football Themed Freeroll Competition and More

Football fans with memberships at Paddy Power Poker were recently able to get into a promotion geared specifically toward their interests. The online poker site had announced a freeroll competition that saw winners taking home a shirt signed by Barcelona star Lionel Messi.

Talented players that wanted to own a unique piece of sports memorabilia were able to sit down at Paddy Power Poker to duke it out with competitors for their chance to win. Messi, a Barcelona midfielder, had donated a shirt from his team, complete with his signature — a prize that drove a number of enthusiasts to the Paddy Power tables. Alongside this, Paddy offered up 20 UEFA Champions League final bets (valued at £10) that gave the highest-ranking 20 competitors a complementary betting opportunity.

Paddy Power Poker regularly hosts great freerolls and other promotions that are designed to drum up extra interest in their site. Following the football freeroll, Paddy announced that it would be hosting more than two dozen guaranteed prize tournaments through 28th May to 12th June. These tournaments come complete with discounted buy-ins that will reach to up to 80 percent off. Players taking part in events throughout the first week will also receive a free token for entry into the 11th June Sunday $250,000 Mega Satellite and another token for the 18th June Sunday $200,000 Mega Satellite.

Virgin Games Study Promotes Social Benefits of Bingo

Virgin Games, owner of the influential company’s bingo and casino networks, has recently announced the results of a landmark study into the personal benefits made possible by online play. The end result of Virgin’s exhaustive research is great news for devoted bingo players as it reinforces the positive influence that the game can have on an individual’s social life.

The study from Virgin Games was conducted through a number of polls that served to measure the playing habits and social interactions of bingo fans. One of these polls looked at the number of players who had made what they considered to be genuine friendships and found that 44 of the 647 person sample group said they had — with 18 percent of the same group saying that had met with their new friends in person. 22 percent of the group told Virgin Games’ researchers that they were comfortable enough with their online bingo friends that they would discuss their personal and family problems with them while 34 percent also stated that they believed that playing internet bingo had improved their social life.

Aside from the interpersonal benefits of playing bingo, Virgin Games also cited interesting data on the replacement of brick and mortar bingo halls by online play. 69 percent of Virgin’s sample group told researchers that internet bingo had completely replaced visiting land-based venues, something that is hardly surprising given the downfall of the game’s physical market.

New Video Slots Made Available through BetFred and William Hill

Fans of video slots have some great new game to try out from the casino sites of Betfred and William Hill. Both Betfred’s Top Trumps Celebs and Will Hill’s Iron Man 2 have just been made available to play and feature exciting film themes alongside the promise of huge cash rewards.

Betfred’s new video slot was developed by Playtech (the same company behind the bulk of the site’s gaming platform) and is already available for play. Top Trumps Celebs is a 20-payline affair that is designed to bring a bit of Hollywood to online gamers through five reels covered in images of stars like Will Smith, Madonna, Brad Pitt, Beyonce Knowles and more. The new video slot lets players pick their favourite celebrities then assigns their faces to the reels’ wild symbols. The movie theme continues on with red carpet bonus rounds as well.

William Hill’s Iron Man 2 is another five reel slot but, unlike Top Trumps Celebs, it comes with 25-paylines. Iron Man 2 awards free games when players are lucky enough to trigger three or more Iron Man logos on the reels. The free games come complete with a multiplier that increases with every other spin, promising great cash rewards during bonus play. Most exciting of the new video slot’s features is the introduction of fixed paylines (that keep all 25 lines active throughout play) and the Iron Man Reactor, an extra wild symbol that appears in all free games. Iron Man 2 can be played at William Hill Casino now.

Virgin Games Reveals Several New Licensed Slot Titles

Virgin’s online casino service,, has just revealed a number of new slot titles for members of its site to play at. Licensed themes have been added to the already popular network, giving internet gaming fans yet another reason to spend a bit of their time checking out Virgin’s robust slots offering.

Perhaps the biggest attraction of the new slots line-up is Star Trek, a game designed by International Game Technology (IGT) that features images and action based on the long-running series of science-fiction television shows and movies. Star Trek is a 30-payline slot game with four free spin bonuses. These bonuses constitute the main draw of the Star Trek slots and can be triggered multiple times per game. Star Trek is joined by another licensed game, the 20-payline, five-reel Who Wants To Be a Millionaire? slot, designed by Electracade and based on the popular trivia game show. The Who Wants To Be a Millionaire slots come equipped with line-based rewards, plenty of bonus games, impressive multipliers (that can reach as high as 15,000 times a staked amount) and scatter features.

The launch of these new slots makes up only one part of Virgin Games’ continued effort at introducing regular doses of fresh content to its site. Warren Eloff, Head of Products for Virgin Games, told press that his company is committed to “ . . . launching at least one new game every week . . .” in order to follow up on the 100 new games added to the network throughout 2010.
