|InterContinental Casinos (ICC), owner of USA and New York Online Internet casinos, has announced plans to re-launch both casinos with new software provided by Playtech.|
The new software will increase the number of games from 12 to 49, adding new features including instant access to detailed game histories, close-up modes for slots and card games and new loyalty tools to enable loyal players to be rewarded automatically.
Questioned about the decision, ICC's Group Casino Manager, David Washington said: 'Over the past 6 months, we have reviewed our entire gaming operation and in response to our findings, have created a long-term strategy that will put us at the top of the list for player service, customer care and value. We have always been proud to give our customers the very best of everything and in our new partnership with Playtech, we're delighted to say that our customers will continue to get the very best that the gaming world has to offer.
This move brings to an end ICC's long-term relationship with Swedish software developer Boss Media.
InterContinental Casinos was Boss Media's first licensee group, with USA Casino being launched in May 1998. New York Casino followed later that year and in 2000 the group added InterContinental Casino.
ICC is keen to assure existing customers that their accounts will remain active with the new software and that no players will suffer because of the move. All players are being kept fully informed about the changeover.
