The software developer Playtech announced that it will be adding to its gaming collection. This new line of online casino games will be linked to various jackpots. A big highlight of the product line reveal is that jackpots will be guaranteed to pay out on a daily basis.
These new games from Playtech are designed after the theme of global sporting events, specifically revolving around celebrated champions of various sports. The games will be launched in the same timeframe as a number of big global events, including the World Cup and the Grand National. In addition to the daily jackpot, there will be a bigger weekly jackpot and the mega jackpot as the pinnacle of rewards.
The casino games are online slots, and each title will feature a sports champion who is recognized on the international level. These unique additions will add a widespread appeal to each game and draw in players across the globe.
Frankie Dettori Sporting Legends is the title of the first new game that will be released by Playtech. This game is considered a sequel to the original title that features the legendary horse racing jockey as a central character.
The various games to follow will be released over a period of a few weeks. Playtech states that all games will be out in time for the 2018 FIFA World Cup that is being held in Russia. The last game, World Cup Top Trumps, is specifically focused on football stars and is a fitting finale to the new releases.
Playtech was started in 1999 and specializes in the development of advanced gambling software. The company is publicly traded on the London Stock Exchange. Some notable products from Playtech include its live dealer games, sports betting, and online casinos. Although it originated in Estonia, the company is now strategically headquartered in Douglas, Isle of Man. Playtech is the leading developer and distributor of digital gaming content for the online casino industry. Its customers include both private first-class gaming sites and government agencies in charge of regulation.
The company has made some high-profile acquisitions over the years. In 2016 during the month of May, Playtech acquired Quickspin, a well-known Swedish game developer. Completion of the acquisition will occur over a period of two years that finishes at the end of 2018. Playtech also moved to improve its in-house responsible gambling practices by acquiring BetBuddy. The company BetBuddy specializes in analytics related to problematic gambling patterns, and Playtech hopes to use the technology in helping players to more quickly prevent an issue.
