January is often the time for new and exciting partnerships to spring up in the mobile gambling world, as operators and developers get their acts together to make their offerings as good as possible for the year ahead. The past week has seen no shortage of announcements of mobile casinos hitching their wagons to the horses of different game developers, and some of the new partnerships have the potential to be pretty exciting. If you’re bored of the same old games at your favourite mobile casinos, read on and find out where the fresh material is to be found.
Spin Genie is still for all intents and purposes a very young mobile casinos. The Gaming Realms site launched last year, and is best known for its innovative gamification techniques, which see players adventuring round magical lands as they play slots and complete challenged in and around the casino.
This week sees Spin Genie launch new games from the developer Realistic Gaming. True to its name, Realistic has set itself apart from its competition by delivering quality games with unbeatable graphics and gameplay. Older classics from the company like Hot Cross Bunnies and Super Graphics Upside Down will be joined by young blood in the form of SnapShot and 6 Appeal, meaning that the new suite of games at Spin Genie is going to be competitive in its own right, regardless of the fact that the casino already has a vast number of great titles.
Both Spin Genie and Realistic pride themselves for focusing primarily on mobile users, a fact that means that the two are compatible both ideologically and technologically. Running games made specifically for mobile on a platform made specifically for mobile can only ever be a good thing. So I suggest you head on over to Spin Genie now and take full advantage.
Paddy Power gets with NYX
While Spin Genie will be launching a number of Realistic slots right off the bat for its players to get their teeth into, Paddy Power is taking a bit of a more cautious approach, and will be dipping its toe in before taking the plunge. The decades old bookmaker-cum-mobile casino has buddied up with the Australian based NYX Gaming Group for its new enterprise, but it’s going to be a one step at a time kind of deal.
This week will see Paddy Power go live with the hugely popular slot Merlin’s Millions Superbet. Players have gone mad for the 3D graphics and huge prizes available on the game, and it has proved so successful that two subsequent sequels have been made to slake players’ thirst for more Merlin themed action.
The fact that this is the first game in a series should probably make it obvious that Paddy Power and NYX don’t plan to stop here. We’re certain to see more NYX games popping up at the casino in the near future. For now, Merlin’s Millions will be helpful in testing the water for Paddy Power, and helping them decide how many more slots they want to launch from their new partner.
Casumo is going to Play’n GO
It’s not just Spin Genie who’s got a nicely gamified platform, and with this week seeing the introduction of Play’n GO games at Casumo Casino, you’re going to have a whole load more ways to earn your next belt at the fantastic Adventure casino. Having launched in 2013, Casumo has since been at the very top of its games as it’s appealed to players who want more than just games.
Having launched a number of games from the developer Thunderkick – whose games are not mobile compatible – towards the end of 2014, mobile players would have no doubt been disappointed by the special treatment being given to desktop player. The balance has been restored this week, however, as Casumo launches a whole new suite of games which are ONLY available to mobile players.
In the last 12 months, Play’n GO has released no fewer than 25 new games, including instant classics like Gemix, Energoonz and Riches of Ra (which, incidentally, is one of our favourite games to feature stacked wilds). Play’n GO games will make an excellent addition to Casumo, and there’s no reason you shouldn’t be over there now playing them.
