Playtech, one of the world’s leading gambling technology companies, has recently announced the second game in its Community Live Slots platform, Age of Gods series: God of Storms. This release follows after last year’s game release, Buffalo Blitz. The game is released and offered through its sub-brand, Flutter Entertainment, released as a limited exclusive across certain Flutter Entertainment brands and is now available network-wide.
The Age of Gods series was launched back in 2016 and has become a major performer in the company’s portfolio. The game has garnered a major following and its success allowed the company to expand across vertical channels in the online gambling industry such as Live Casino, Bingo, and Poker variants.
The Community Live Slots platform was released at the back end of 2019, featured in the highly popular game, Buffalo Blitz. This slot concept is played cross-vertically, meaning that the slot is played as a collective experience. In fact, this is the first live game to feature community spins where all participating players are playing a single game together.
The live game is based in a live studio where a host is leading the game while providing in-game commentary, giving off a game show feel, immersing players in a totally new experience. Playtech’s recent Community Live Slots release, God of Storms, seeks to recreate the streamer environment with hosts as live streamers. The experience is further enhanced through stage sound design that recreates an atmosphere experienced through weather sound elements. The game also features an industry-first chat functionality integrated to the game, allowing players to communicate with one another.
The game begins as players choose their overall spending limit, number of spins, and wager per spin. The game automatically spins every couple of seconds, making the gameplay easy for players. The Community Live Slots also provides players with a free spin bonus, the first live game in the industry to do so.
Chief Executive Officer at Playtech Live Casino, Edo Haitin, commented that since the company has received fantastic feedback on the game platform released and featured in Buffalo Blitz, they are delighted to bring the popular Age of the Gods brand to a new audience. He also said that the Live Casino is basically an entertainment-focused experience and in Community Live Slots, the company is focused on delivering an engaging and truly collaborative style of gameplay.
He further added that since the game is playable with just 1p a spin, it is consistently popular with slot newbies and seasoned players alike, and thus the decision in offering the game was clear to the company as it seeks to attract a wider audience. He also stressed that the success of live play streaming services demonstrates the players’ demand for an interactive experience. He explained that players seek the feel of playing alongside other players in a brick and mortar casino.
He further explained that the Community Live Slots strives to recreate that feeling for players and as well as creating an exciting cross-sell opportunity for operators especially for game series such as Age of the Gods.
