|Online gambling software developer, Playtech, has announced the release of four brand-new games, bringing the total number of games in its portfolio to 75.|
The new games - Blackjack Surrender, Derby Day, 'Jacks or Better' 10-Line Video Poker and 'Aces and Faces' 25-Line Video Poker - are available on all Playtech-powered casinos.
The launch of the four new games is the latest in a long line of new product developments from Playtech, now recognized as one of the fastest growing and most highly respected software developers.
Derby Day is a virtual horse racing fixed-odds game aimed primarily at the UK sportsbook market and at sports fans in general. It boasts several value-added features in addition to best-of-breed animation and realistic track sounds.
Blackjack Surrender is a game based on the Single-Deck Blackjack currently available in all Playtech-powered casinos but featuring a new surrender option. Available to players after they are dealt the first two cards, this feature allows players to surrender - thereby automatically losing the game round but only losing half their initial bet.
The 10- and 25-line video poker games were developed by Playtech in response to renewed demand in the online casino industry in general, and among Playtech casino players in particular, for a greater diversity of video poker games.
‘Our company's product development strategy has and will always be focused firstly on the needs of our licensees and their players,’ commented Iris Toledano, Playtech's Marketing Director, ‘We're confident that this games release - and more will follow in the coming months - will further enhance the offering of Playtech-powered casinos and will increase operators' competitive edge in an increasingly crowded gaming market.'
