Multiplayer casino games?
Microgaming is always developing new games but in addition it also has something else: Multiplayer functionality on some of their slot machines. How cool is that and why has nobody else come up with this idea before? The three slots; tennis-themed Centre Court, movie-based theme Terminator 2 and the classic Sure Win all have multiplayer functionality. That sounds like a new genre!
The 5 reel slot Centre Court is available in both HTML5 and Flash, and last year a tournament was played with a prize pool of € 2,500. Terminator 2 also had its own T-100,000 tournament with a prize pool of € 100,000. The tournament has a main prize of € 10,000! Sure Win got a new high definition look and this game also got a tournament with a prize pool of € 10,000. Annually, this multi-player tournament will be organized and if this is successful, it will be extended without a doubt.
Microgaming Multiplayer Games Product Manager James Ford said: “Having invested heavily to have the tournament functionality, configuration and reporting modules earlier in the year, we are now in great position to take place rolling out some exciting new multiplayer titles along with network multiplayer tournaments. ”
We wonder wether Microgaming will succeed in these tournaments and if more online casinos will pick up this new genre. At least it brings an extra dimension to the online casino visit in general and to the casino slots in particular. Moreover, many players obviously will enjoy an extra dose of competition. This makes the games even more exciting.
