Highlights from the Online Casino Industry

A lot has been happening in the online gambling industry throughout February 2015. The annual International Gaming Awards (IGA) and the ICE Totally Gaming exhibition both took place. Several new online slot machines arrived in casinos and Casino Euro had a completely new website redesign.

Let’s start by taking a look at some of the winners from IGA 2015. For the second year in a row, Playtech won the iGaming Software Supplier award. Mr Green Casino won the Casino Operator of the Year award for the third year running and Net Entertainment (NetEnt) won the Slot Provider/Supplier Product of the Year.

“To walk away with the Slot Provider/Supplier Product of the Year for both online and land based is a superb achievement,” said the NetEnt CEO and President, Per Eriksson. He added, “Our mission is always to provide leading edge online casino solutions and we’re honoured to be recognized for our hard work.” We obtained these comments from NetEnt’s official website. In 2014, NetEnt won the Innovator of the Year award at the same event.

This award-winning online casino software provider launched a new online slot machine called Steam Tower. This new slot was launched on desktop and on mobile. The company’s Chief Product Officer, Simon Hammon, said “Steam Tower is packed full of innovative developments and progressive features that NetEnt are renowned for. The Victorian era is synonymous with advancement and improvement, which reflects our own mission to drive the online casino market forward.”

The Steam Tower online slot machine can now be found in some of the best online casinos in the world. This new slot is set in the Victorian Era and it has 5 reels and 15 winning paylines with a multi-level Free Spins Bonus Round, regular Wild Symbols and Stacked Wild Symbols. There are 16 different Free Spins levels to climb to where prizes can be multiplied by up to 7X. A bonus cash prize will also be awarded just for reaching the final level. You can climb to a new level each time a Wild Symbol shows up in any position across the reels during the Free Spins Bonus.

The latest slots from Playtech include Cat in Vegas and The Pyramid of Ramesses and these new slots can now be found in several top Playtech powered casinos such as Paddy Power Casino, Bet365 Casino, Omni Casino, Mansion Casino, Fly Casino, Casino.com, Genting Casino and William Hill Casino. Realtime Gaming also launched brand new slot called The Three Stooges: Brideless Groom and this new slot can now be found in sites like Aladdin’s Gold Casino, Club World Casinos, Lucky Red Casino, Casino Titan and Silver Oak Casino.

In other news, a famous online casino called Casino Euro recently had a stylish new makeover. The entire layout has changed and the new navigation & improved game search engine feature have made it much easier for players to find their favourite games. The casino has been revamped so you can enjoy a seamless experience on a variety of different devices. Deposits & withdrawals are now much faster than before and you can also now view a timeline or your recent activity, including played games, winnings, messages and notifications.
