|December 10 2007 (Dublin, IRELAND, and Toronto, CANADA) – CryptoLogic Limited, a leading software developer to the global Internet casino gaming market, has launched two star-studded Internet casino slot games on its award-winning platform: the eagerly anticipated Spider-Man and the legendary Fantastic Four. |
Based on the renowned Marvel Super Heroes, the games will be available exclusively to CryptoLogic licensees through the company’s wholly-owned subsidiary, WagerLogic Ltd.
“CryptoLogic’s new Spider-Man and Fantastic Four games are the latest examples of our industry-leading innovation, and our partnerships with the world’s biggest gaming and entertainment brands,” said Javaid Aziz, CryptoLogic’s President and CEO. “Bringing these legendary Super Heroes to the world’s best Internet casinos reflects CryptoLogic’s commitment to help every customer build a loyal player base through both high-impact games and high-profile brands.”
For the first time, players will be transported into Spider-Man’s New York City realm to foil bad guys and rescue victims from danger. With three unique feature sequences and big payouts — up to 5,000 times a line bet — rewards are around every corner. Players can earn up to 15 additional rounds of play and double prize values when the web-slinger achieves his ultimate mission: defeating Venom and saving Mary Jane.
The Fantastic Four create a new level of excitement as they take on a spectacular adventure against the villainous Dr. Doom. Watch Mr. Fantastic test the limits of his flexibility, the Invisible Woman storm onto the reels, the Human Torch burst into flames and the Thing send shockwaves with his powerful blows. With a chance to win 5,000 times a player’s bet and up to 15 free game spins, the only difficulty will be deciding which character to play.
“These celebrated Marvel Super Heroes have finally taken their place at the world’s top Internet casinos – powered by CryptoLogic,” said Justin Thouin, CryptoLogic’s Vice President, Product Management and Business Development.
Spider-Man and the Fantastic Four join CryptoLogic’s roster of wildly popular Marvel-branded slot games, including the Hulk, Daredevil, Blade, The Punisher, Thor, X-Men, Silver Surfer, Elektra, Iron Man and Ghost Rider. Available exclusively to WagerLogic licensees, these games bring players big-screen excitement, stunning graphics and their favourite Marvel characters — along with the chance to win huge cash prizes.
CryptoLogic has earned top honours for its world-class Internet software, including the Top Casino Software award from Online Gambling Magazine in each of the last two years. The award, based on the votes of readers, players and website visitors, is widely considered the industry’s top honour.
