Tuesday October 4, 2011 : Microgaming platform takes social gaming to the next level with the launch of multi-player roulette
 
Microgaming's Quickfire division has released its first multi-player online casino game with the launch of Multi-Player Roulette, which will be made available to QuickFire operators before the end of the year, with Bet3000 leading the charge as the first operator.
 
Multi-Player Roulette will be the first in a series of community based games, which spokesmen claim will take the social gaming sector to the next level.
 
Based on one of Microgaming’s top performing games, Premier Roulette, the new product allows players to place bets on the table alongside up to four other players, who can choose to play on 20, 40 or 60 second tables.
 
Ashley Sandyford-Sykes, Quickfire spokesperson, says: “Gaming is shifting so quickly and players’ demands are changing fast. Social gaming is becoming increasingly popular and Multi-Player Roulette brings a community feel to a relatively traditional game, replicating the land-based atmosphere in the players' own homes. This will be a new product line for Quickfire and it will work alongside our current Quickfire Flash casino, mobile, live dealer, mini and nano games.”
 
Ellen Learmonth, director affiliate marketing at Bet3000, said that the new Quickfire product is a valuable development: "The community bonuses and chat application will improve player engagement and enhance the overall gaming experience. We think the games will prove to be very popular with our customer base, as they appeal to socially active players.”
