Internet based Virgin Casino has announced that it is set to release a new video slot based on owner Sir Richard Branson's private Caribbean getaway, Necker Island.
The game, which goes by the same name as the island, was developed exclusively for Virgin Games by Genesis Gaming, Inc. and will be launched soon in the virtual casino. Necker Island features 50 paylines and an extra row of symbols, hypothetically giving players more ways to win. A locked wild free game series is including in the slot, as well as a bonus round that gives players 10 free games.
Commenting on the new title, Virgin Games Head of Products Warren Eloff said: We wanted to create a game exclusively for our Virgin Games players – something that only we could offer and that truly summed up being part of the Virgin community. As such, we thought it would be ideally fitting to have a game created by Genesis Gaming that was themed around Sir Richard Branson’s luxurious private island."
“As an operator, offering our customers seamless game play is crucial, and as a Virgin company maintaining brand integrity is a must. Using Microgaming’s QuickFire platform has delivered on both counts - offering both easy integration and allowing us to give our players a unique Virgin Games experience.”
Genesis Gaming CEO Steven Meistrich also commented, saying: "It was exciting for our team to build a customized and branded video slot game consistent with the quality and fun users expect from the Virgin brand."
“We are also pleased that Necker Island will be integrated to the Quickfire platform as we have a successful partnership already in place and are confident that it can maintain the optimal experience for Virgin players.”
