    MICROGAMING LAUNCHES MULTI-PLAYER VIPER SOFTWARE

    Beta version now live on Royal Vegas Casino


    Turnkey provider Microgaming has announced that its new Multi-Player Viper (MPV) software will go live on Royal Vegas Casino (part of the Fortune Lounge Group) from today. Multi-player Viper is forecast to be one of the most dynamic growth and game development areas over the next few years, a company spokesman said.

    In an important new development, the Microgaming software – currently in Beta format, requires no separate download; players simply register an alias for regular Viper player accounts that can be used for MPV play. Viper software is used across many of Microgaming’s most popular games and has been one of the most versatile, popular and intuitive gaming software packages in the history of the industry.

    The chosen player alias will be unique across the Microgaming Poker and Casino Networks for ease of use and quick access to play. If a player has a poker alias already they are able to use this as their MPV alias.

    The first phase of Microgaming’s new MPV product will contain slot tournaments, the popularity of which has increased greatly over the years due to their fast pace and excitement. Slot tournaments offer the fun associated with normal slot games, but with MPV there is the added attraction of players competing against each other for the winner’s prize. Played on MPV, the game is a fast draw frenzy that really gets the adrenalin pumping, providing lots of excitement within concentrated, short periods of time over a single round.

    This first release on Royal Vegas has two slots; Thunderstruck and Tomb Raider. Tomb Raider’s enduring popularity has made it a hit across all gaming platforms and the franchise is now expected to grow as it entertains thousands via multi-play.

    Oh Crap!

    NO!!!!!!!!!!

    The BETA test crashes my PC. When this came out, I added Royal Vegas to All Slots on my list of Viper clients that crash my PC. Both have in common a piece of "innovation" from Microgaming in so called "beta test".

    NO MORE please, until the problems at All Slots and Royal Vegas are sorted out.

    Not so wicked



    Er no.

    Entry fee $2, prizes $6 & $4 for the lowest level.

    Great idea, but the pitiful prizes are less than impressive.

    I would play though, if I could be sure my PC would still work after exiting the casino.

    I guess I'm confused.... Seems I've been saying that a lot lately. (Sorry. :rolleyes: )
    But didn't Belle Rock have something like this that I tried to sign up for, but never got to work because it wouldn't let me use my Prima poker Username? It wouldn't let me pick a new name, but wouldn't let me use my existing... grrrr... LOL

    Anyway, I'll have to fire up RV just so I can give it a look-see -- then sit here sipping java while everything jerks and jumps and grinds....

    Utter Crap

    I have just tried the Royal Vegas tournaments for the first time.

    Utter CRAP!!!!!

    I didn't know WTF I was doing, the software took me to where I didn't want to be, then locked:mad:
    I eventually managed to get to the Tomb Raider slot to play out my entry. I was able to use a mere third of my bankroll (simply not enough time allowed because it was not permitted to increase the bet so that all the bankroll could be used in the allocated time), but I got the idea that you were meant to use it all, and your score was based on gross payout, rather than the player who ended with the highest balance.
    When my time was up, I was unceromoniously dumped back to the casino lobby, absolutely NO option to take time out to look at the scoreboard and explore the positioning. I could not even get back to the tournement lobby to where I knew the scores to be displayed, the software just locked at "loading graphics", as though it were attempting to reload the tournament.

    Well, that was fun,

    NOT!!!!!!

    oooooh dear.
    Early Days I guess and no doubt these tournaments will evolve and grow. Sounds a bit of a half assed attempt at the mo though.

    Freeroll

    Well, I tried again (idiot), but at least this time I selected a freeroll one for Thunderstruck.

    Yet again I got to play less than half my bankroll, and managed to hit the feature & a retrigger, it took over 3 minutes to play out this feature, and it was crap:mad: Given that only 10 minutes in total are allowed, this is poor. In normal mode, Thunderstruck runs one hell of a lot faster, and I may even have finished the entire bankroll. This time, it DID show me the scoreboard and allowed ME to choose when to go back to the lobby. I noted that one player had more than the initial starting bankroll - this should have been impossible, as payouts are added to the winbox, and not to the bankroll.
    I noticed there is absolutely NO interest in the sit n go, only the scheduled events attract players. This might be due to a pretty obvious rip off. 5 players allowed, $5 each, prize fund $23 - doesn't add up, where is the other $2 - given that large amounts are given away in the freerolls, hardly any surprise no one enters the sit n go.

    Cryptologic has had these, and the software plays pretty much as fast as the normal lobby, AND you get half to one hour to play.

    The MG tournament lobby lacks the "Quick Spin" option, so one has the further annoyance of the reels taking what seems like forever as the clock speeds onward to zero.

    When I logged out of the Royal Vegas casino, my PC died and I had to forcibly restart it with the "off" switch as the 3 fingered salute only resulted in a BSOD:mad:

    Microgaming should have released this NEXT month, preferrably the 1st:D

    You got BSOD after a three-finger salute? And this is your new PC?

    BSOD is a rare occurrence unless there are corrupted files in the system - I think I've seen it on two out of 13 machines in the past two years, and never on my own personal machines. So either your first OS installation was not good, or else MGS have caused some significant problems.

    Or maybe you've been playing too much with the registry :)

    I think as regards your BSOD Spearmaster is probably right.
    My PC is built from old Bathroom appliances and MG have never caused the BSOD.
    Some time ago I had the Idea for a site that ran slot and Bingo tourneys.
    It would have been subscription based and awarded prizes donated by my sponsors who in return would benefit from advertising their products.
    The Idea was that a player would receive a set of Tokens (Bronze,Silver,Gold) the amount and type of Tokens dependent on the subscription package with Gold Tokens gaining entry to tournemants with the most valuable prizes.Logistics dictated that the tournaments would have to be time based with a set stake.
    It seems now that such Ideas are not our own but just "out there" floating in the Etha waiting to be discovered.
    Simmo must have been sleeping that Day :p

    I hope you are not suggesting it is full of S***!

    As for this tourney site thing there is a huge potential/neglected market of low rollers,Bingo players,bored house wives et al to tap in to for the people who find the right product.
