5/25/10 – Online gambling software provider GTechG2 has announced the imminent rollout of its latest casino software update, which includes a new feature-rich slot machine built on a powerful new slots engine.
The company notes that the software recently achieved certification status with the independent third party standards organisation eCOGRA.
The new slot engine carries support for advanced odds tables and built-in bonus games, and was developed by G2's Game Studio group.
Mystic Island, the first game to be built on the new slot engine, is inspired by the "Lost" television series. Like all new games to be built on this engine, it has in-game bonus rounds and features like "Cascading Slot Symbols", crazy wilds with multipliers and "interactive spin stops", enabling the player to enhance the online gaming experience
"The new slot engine means that we can experiment more and add new features to our games," said Dominic Mansour, head of gaming products. "We can go outside the box and are not so bound to the reel patterns and traditional way we built slot games before," he added.
"This software release and the first new game it powers are just a taste of what's to come in future game design," said Mikael Hjalmarson, senior casino engineer at G2's Game Studio. "The new engine gives us the freedom to turn our wildest ideas into interactive games."
The new software has been reviewed by eCOGRA, the non-profit London-based player protection and standards organisation, and now bears the Certified Software seal of approval. A company spokesman said that eCOGRA places particular emphasis on fair and responsible gambling and is synonymous with the highest industry levels of professional conduct and superior operating standards.
