Monday July 16 2012 : VIRGIN GAMES TO LAUNCH EXCLUSIVE NEW SLOT
Quickfire powers Necker Island game
Virgin Games has chosen the Quickfire platform from Microgaming to host its exclusive new video slot game, Necker Island.
Developed by Genesis Gaming Inc. uniquely for Virgin Games and soon to be launched in the Virgin Games online casino, Necker Island is based on Sir Richard Branson’s own sun-soaked private atoll in the British Virgin Islands.
Unlike standard video slot games, Necker Island has an extra row of symbols and 50 pay lines, giving players more ways to win. The game also has an exciting ‘Locked Wild’ free game series, as well as a bonus feature awarding the player 10 free games.
Warren Eloff, head of products at Virgin Games, commented: “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.”
Steven Meistrich, CEO of Genesis Gaming, Inc., said: "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.”
