Whether land-based or online, gaming is essentially part of the entertainment industry –effectively ‘competing’ with movies, television, and live entertainment for the attention of consumers.
The goal to entertain is central to Playtech’s Live Casino offering. At its heart, Live Casino brings the land-based feel online, enabling players to experience a ‘night out staying in’ – something that took on a whole new meaning, and significance, during a worldwide lockdown. But long before that, an experience-led approach to content and presentation – recreating an interactive atmosphere and the feeling of engaging with other players – was key to Live Casino’s success.
Making slots a shared experience
At first glance, slot games seem an unlikely choice for a Live Casino game. With no dealer or opponent required slots games seem to be, by their very nature, designed to enjoy alone. But while these games may not have been originally designed with interactive, collective play in mind, that didn’t mean the potential wasn’t there.
The Live Slots format brings the principle of community play to this type of game for the first time. In the same way that games such as Bingo are built around all players waiting on the same result, Live Slots feature community spins, with all players betting on the same spin. This can create a sense of both shared engagement and competition – and with in-game hosting, the dealer’s communication with the players can build on that excitement, just as they would in a land-based casino.
Buffalo Blitz™, the first game to get the Live Slots treatment, is one of the most successful slots in Playtech’s history; a true ‘evergreen’ favorite in many established markets. Combining the appeal of a proven hit with the innovation of something genuinely unique in the market, Buffalo Blitz™ Live presents an exciting opportunity for operators looking to make an impact in the Live Casino arena.
