|January 21, 2004 (Nicosia, CY) – WagerLogic Limited, a leading software provider to the Internet gaming and e-commerce industries, announced today the latest addition to its award-winning downloadable casino software developed by CryptoLogic Inc. Inspired by popular land-based casinos worldwide, Bonus Pack 3 debuts the Internet’s first multi-currency progressive, a progressive jackpot to single and multi-player blackjack games, and new slots featuring an exciting loyalty bonus point program.|
“Our new progressive blackjack game raises the stakes in a favorite casino game classic and introduces a global-oriented jackpot,” said Justin Thouin, CryptoLogic’s Casino Group Product Manager. “Our latest slots give players more choice and ways to win. It’s all about delivering fun, online entertainment with innovative products that help our customers enhance player loyalty and create profitable, sustainable Internet businesses.”
Multi-Currency Progressive Blackjack
A progressive “bonus” jackpot adds a high stake to the traditional blackjack game, offering players the added excitement of a possible instant large win. Also, the Internet’s first multi-currency progressive blackjack game is launched, allowing players to bet in US dollars, Pounds Sterling or Euros, with the jackpot paid in the currency of their wager. The jackpot begins counting at $/£/€ 50,000.
A progressive real-time counter is displayed on all the tables linking participating online casinos that are powered by WagerLogic software. Players are eligible for the progressive prize by placing a side-bet each hand. The jackpot is awarded if a player receives four aces in one hand. Chances at secondary cash prizes are also available.
New Bonus Slots
Slot players can now enjoy Top Hat Magic and Star Catcher – fun themes of the latest three-line slots that offer an exciting bonus accumulation program on top of a generous payout table.
Bonus points are awarded when a player gets three of the same symbol in a single line. Accumulated bonus points are saved on the users account indefinitely and are redeemable for cash. This is in addition to the custom comp programs.
Bonus Pack 3 also replaces Spice Island Poker with Caribbean Stud Poker. The re-branding of the popular single and multi-player poker variation better reflects the game played in land-based casinos. Caribbean Stud Poker offers a US$100,000 (£50,000) default progressive jackpot.
