12/10/09 – GTech G2 subsidiary Dynamite Idea, which specialises in online games development, has announced that it is to provide the major UK gambling group Gala Coral with side games for its online bingo and online casino sites.
The first of the new games to launch will be the Bar X Magic 7 slot machine, an online version of the game that is popular in bingo halls across the UK, followed by the Bar X 5 and Bar X 125. A set of other side games will be added before the end of the year.
Bar X is a brand that has been around for thirty years and is well established, with over 55 000 machines in bingo halls and gaming arcades throughout the UK and Ireland.
The online version of the Electrocoin Bar X Magic 7 is a three reel, single line fruit machine developed by designers at Dynamite Idea.
Instant win side games have become more than a supplemental revenue stream for online casino and bingo operators, many of which derive 60 percent – 70 percent of their income from these product offerings, a company spokesman revealed this week.
