Round Up of Events from Around the Net

We couldn’t go without mentioning about the lucky Canadian player who recently won the Mega Jackpot on Microgaming’s Mega Moolah slot machine over at Royal Vegas Mobile Casino on April 9th. He won a record-breaking CA$7,561,773 (approximately £4,092,220 / €5,375,695.08) while playing on his smartphone or tablet device and this is the largest ever jackpot paid out to a mobile casino player.

The Head of Casino at Microgaming, John Quinn, said “We’ve been watching the progressive ticker grow substantially over the last few weeks; anticipation was building as to when it was going to strike!” He then went on to say, “Once again the jackpot was hit via a mobile device; it really is a sign of today’s industry and how prevalent mobile is! Congratulations to Mark A on becoming one of the biggest jackpot winners in Microgaming’s history.”

Some of the latest slots to have arrived in casinos over the past few weeks were developed by some of the world’s leading online casino software providers. When you next sign in to your favourite Playtech casino you’ll be able to find a new online slot called Foxy Fortunes (5 reels and 25 winning paylines).

When you next sign in to your favourite Microgaming casino you’ll be able to find a new online slot called Rabbit in the Hat (5 reels and 9 winning paylines) and also Dragon’s Myth (5 reels and 20 winning paylines). The Dragon’s Myth slot was actually made by a game developer called Rabcat. You can launch these new slots over Microgaming’s Flash, download and Quickfire platforms, which means that you can also play on these games at sites like bgo Vegas, Casino Euro and Mr Green Casino and not just at casinos which are powered entirely by Microgaming (e.g. Gaming Club Casino, Jackpot City Casino, Crazy Vegas Casino and Royal Vegas Casino).

IGT Interactive’s latest slot machine is called Natural Powers (5 reels and 40 winning paylines) and this one can now be found at Mr Green Casino and Realtime Gaming recently launched a new slot called Ghost Ship (5 reels and 25 winning paylines). This new RTG slot is available now at sites like Lucky Red Casino, Casino Titian, Slots Jungle, Manhattan Slots, ClubWorld Casinos, Silver Oak Casino and WinPalace Casino. There was also a brand new 3D slot from Betsoft Gaming called Pinocchio (5 reels and 15 winning paylines) which can now be found at sites like Tropezia Palace Casino, Drake Casino and Gossip Slots.

In other news, a modest range NetEnt games recently found their way into two more online casinos. This means that you can now find a selection of NetEnt slot machines over at Slots Magic (formerly Jackpot Party Casino) and also at bwin.party online casino. Speaking about this was the Group Director at bwin.party, Golan Shaked. He said “We embarked upon a journey to enhance our casino offering by focusing on a content and gaming platform upgrade.”

He then finished by saying “We have been very impressed with the NetEnt content catalogue and the graphic quality of their work. I am sure that the new titles will work very well alongside our exclusive proprietary games.” These comments came from the official NetEnt website.
