I had the opportunity to play the latest award winning IGT slot title on a recent trip to Vegas. The Avatar game is simply mind blowing. You sit with 4 other players and share a giant bonus screen as well as your own screen… those interactive bonus rounds feel like clips from the movie – absolutely stunning.
Unfortunately, I was not able to scoop any big wins… next time, next time.
Meanwhile, back in the online casino world, a major announcement has come out almost unnoticed.
International Games Technology (IGT) has partnered with gambling giant Bwin-Party to bring slot titles and interactive games to the Party sites. The sites will include the New Jersey casino, as well as the main Party Casino and other smaller sites in regulated international markets.
Now, for me, the bespoke Party Casino products were already pretty good. This is one of the few casinos who have pulled off going it alone successfully. Most have already partnered with one or more of the major software houses.
Pretty good is just about to get a whole lot better.
Including IGT titles is going to breathe new life into the Party Casino. If you have not played these games before, then here are a few of the top titles to look out for online. I should note that we do not yet know when these games will become available or exactly which ones.
1 – Monopoly: This old classic actually has several versions. There are 3-reel games, 5-reel games and video slots with interactive feature rounds and a wheel giving you the big wins. I also played this one out in Vegas on my last trip, and it was a hell of a lot more fun than the board game.
2 – Wheel Of Fortune: Get 3 reel symbols and you will start a feature round where you get to spin the reels, an intensive and entertaining slot – though you might have to mute the ‘Wheel-of-FORTUNE’ shout after a while (and the canned clapping depending on your taste!).
3 – Star Trek: Whether or not you are a ‘Trekky’, this is one very cool slot featuring clips from the shows and big bonus rounds. You’ll go where no slot has gone before.
These are just 3 well known IGT titles, this software house has a full portfolio of table games, interactive games and slots.
I am looking forward to seeing them add to the already impressive list at my favorite casino – check out www.partycasino.com for more.
