Virtual Derby fixed odds single player horse racing game incorporates video
11 January 2010 (Stockholm, Sweden) – A major update to its Instant Games casino software brings the GTECH G2 instant portfolio to 53 innovative games. The total portfolio including download, instant and 3rd party content is now well over 300 games. This latest update adds 3 new slots, a new video poker game, American Roulette and Showdown poker, 2 new instant win games, new scratch cards and a brilliant new virtual horse racing Game, Virtual Derby. Mindful of growing Eastern European markets, the update also adds support for Bulgarian, now 13 languages in all.
“2009 was a busy year. With all of our new collaborations and partnerships, we launched quite a collection of new games,” said Dominic Mansour, GTECH G2 Head of Casino. “Our own Games Studio team has more incredible products in development for 2010 and, thanks to the flexibility of our advanced back-end systems, we’ll continue to aggregate games from other sources to maintain a comprehensive collection of innovative products.”
Slots players, in particular, have an insatiable appetite for new and better games. GTECH G2’s three new instant-play slots — Maya Gold, Lucky’s Diner and Rome – capture players’ imaginations with popular themes and extend their playing time with free games and bonus rounds.
The new Virtual Derby virtual horse racing game is perhaps the most innovative of all the new games now available to licensees. The first in a series of Track Day games, Track Day – Virtual Derby is a fixed odds single player horse racing game that incorporates stunning movie clips. Players can place Win, Place, Show Quinella and Exacta wagers and then watch a video animation of the race.
“Virtual Derby is developed by Solid Icon and has been integrated into GTECH G2’s aggregated product line-up alongside games developed by our internal games development teams as well as other developers,” said Henrik Fagerlund, GTECH G2 Head of Instant Game Development.
The next major update to both the Instant Game and Download Game products will be at the end of January. New games will be showcased at IGE in London.
