July 10, 2008 (Dublin, IRELAND) – Underwater adventure and intense blackjack action await online players with the introduction of the latest game pack from CryptoLogic Limited, a leading software developer to the global Internet gaming market. CryptoLogic’s newest game pack features famed Marvel Super Hero Sub-Mariner and 4 Deck Multi Hand Video Blackjack, a patent-pending product developed exclusively by CryptoLogic.
Available today, these new games are offered through William Hill (www.williamhillcasino.com), InterCasino (www.intercasino.com) and at Littlewoods (www.littlewoodscasino.com).
“At CryptoLogic, we know there are two critical elements to online gaming success: give players a compelling experience with a game or character they know, or design a fresh take on a familiar concept,” said Brian Hadfield, CryptoLogic’s President and CEO. “Our relationship with Marvel has enabled us to create and deliver some of the most memorable online slots today with some of the world’s most recognized characters. Coupled with our patent-pending gaming innovations, CryptoLogic has aggressively positioned itself as a leader in this highly competitive space.”
Sub-Mariner, one of the first Marvel Comics legends, makes his Internet casino debut with an action-packed 25 payline online slot game, joining other popular characters, including Spider-Man, The Hulk, the Fantastic Four, Iron Man and The X-Men. Watch as the game screen is flooded, leaving Sub-Mariner to swim through each level of reels. Sink submarines and destroy battleships to save the underwater world of Atlantis during rewarding and visually-stunning interactive bonus rounds for a chance to win 5000 times your line bet – all for as little as one cent!
Fans of blackjack are in for a real treat with the launch of the latest installment of CryptoLogic’s proprietary Multi Hand Video Blackjack game: 4 Deck Multi Hand Video Blackjack. An incredible new twist enables players to play up to five hands at a time, against up to 50 dealer hands. With a single strong hand, you can beat the dealer up to 50 times in one round! Player friendly rules, including four decks per shoe, dealer standing on 17 and a tutorial feature, make this game a breeze – even for first-time players.
“Our innovative games make players want to come back for more, time and time again — making CryptoLogic the software of choice for players and licensees alike,” said Justin Thouin, CryptoLogic’s Vice President, Product Management and Business Development
