|LONDON, UK – Feb. 27, 2008 – Orbis, the world’s leading provider of interactive gaming and betting solutions, has launched its latest Games Package 11 release which includes a variety of OpenBet™ Casino and OpenBet Fixed Odds Games.|
This latest package release introduces ‘Let it Spin’. This game is a new unique online accumulator game featured in the OpenBet Fixed Odds Games module. Chips are placed on a wheel divided into 16 sections, four of which are black numbers the remaining white, then the wheel spins. If the wheel rests on white, it allows all chips placed on a white number to remain on the wheel, increasing their payout by 0.25 times. When the wheel halts on a black number the payout increases to a massive 15 times and then the wheel is cleared of all bets and winnings are paid out. The game will appeal to high rollers and betting enthusiasts who will love the roulette style of play and the climbing odds.
Package 11 also offers enhanced OpenBet Casino games, which include Atlantic City and Super Fun 21. Both of these games are Blackjack variants with options to split and surrender hands. As well as improving game play, Orbis’ casino game enhancements provide operators and players the flexibility to change the colours of the baizes, stream MP3 background sounds, re-brand chip colours, logos, card backs and much more.
