Realtime Gaming Launches New Banana Joe Game

Jungle adventure in search of the Crystal Banana!

RealTime Gaming has launched its new Banana Joe game with a theme featuring a cartoon monkey character and an aerial quest to save a magical Crystal Banana.

It’s a Snakes-and-Ladders-style board game in which Banana Jones awards wins on a roll of the dice. Each player gets 5 rolls per bet and there are features such as the Treasure Wheel Feature and the Crystal Banana Quest Feature lurking behind the bushes. The top award stands at 2,565 times the bet and players can try to win it starting August 1st.

Banana Joe faces off against the villain Leopold the Leopard and his dangerous snake associates in the game, and should he fail to find the crystal banana in time the world could face catastrophe (yes, the developers have let their imaginations run wild in this game!)

The game will be available on desktop and mobile, and offers players something that is a little different to the usual run of slot-style offerings.

New Online Slot From Play’n Go

Developer cooks up some summer fun with Sizzling Spins

Online gambling games developer Play’n GO has released its latest 5 reel, 243 ways-to-win online slot titled Sizzling Spins with a barbeque theme for the summer months.

The developer says that capturing the feel of a BBQ was crucial to the concept of this game, something that the creative team took very seriously from the beginning of the project right through to the final product.

Producer Daniel Wright spoke about how it was accomplished:

“Everyone loves a barbecue, and not only for the burnt sausages! It’s about the good feelings that come with it – sunshine, loud music and friends. We tried to recreate that feeling in Sizzling Spins in many ways.

“Firstly, the gameplay is focused on fire and heat, to evoke feelings of a hot summer’s day. We also created an immersive soundtrack that gives players a feel-good atmosphere, which means everyone can enjoy a bit of 70’s/80’s classic rock while flipping a burger.”

Play’n GO and CEO Johan Törnqvist believes themes can be an important part of creating entertaining games:

“Players will feel more of a connection with a game that speaks to how they feel, reflects their interests and what they are doing. Sizzling Spins is a huge amount of fun and we know people are going to enjoy it, the concept and relevance just adds that little bit extra for the players, and that’s what it’s all about.”

New Online Slots From RTG And Iron Dog Studios

Themes based on Indian and Chinese mythology

Online gambling game providers RealTime Gaming and Iron Dog Studios are both about to release new slots with themes as diverse as Indian religious beliefs and Chinese dragon mythology.

Coming from Iron Dog Studios on August 22 is Moirai Blaze, a beautifully illustrated 7X7 game with a theme based on the Diwali religious festival of light and the goddess of wealth Lakshmi.

The game features Wilds, exploding wilds, special symbols with reward functions, scatters, free spins, multipliers and a bonus round.

Realtime Gaming’s latest release is set to launch this week and is titled Ancient Gods. It’s a 5 reel, 25 pay-line game with a Chinese mythology theme replete with dragons and other mystical beasts.

Players seek out golden medallions which unlock celestial treasures…and free spins.

Features include Wilds, Scatters, Multipliers and Free Spins.

Brian Cullingworth

Infopowa news was a staple of Casinomeister’s news from 2000 until 2019. Brian Cullingworth was the main writer, contributor, and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known involved in the online casino industry.

We first met in January 2001 at the ICE in London where I observed him going booth to booth interviewing online casino, software, and licensing jurisdiction representatives. Brian was also heavily involved with our forum as “Jetset“, he was involved as an informal consultant to eCOGRA, the OPA, and was a player advocate who assisted countless aggrieved players with his connections to industry folks. He also published “Casino Cautions” via Infopowa news for quite a number of years. These can be found in our news archives.

His passing in February 2019 was a dark day for us. He will be forever missed.
