Through a strategic partnership, Microgaming rolls out new blackjack and roulette titles by award-winning content developer Realistic Games. The games are now available on Microgaming’s content aggregation platform.
James Buchanan, Director of Global Operations at Microgaming, made a deal with Robert Lee, Commercial Director at Realistic Games, to raise the two developers’ brand visibility. In a press release, Buchanan said: “Realistic Roulette and Blackjack are two classic titles that will make a great addition to our ever-growing portfolio, appealing to a range of players with life-like gaming experiences. Realistic slot games have been achieving strong results since launching last October and we expect that its high-end table games will be no exception.”
The launch of the two casino table games is just the start of a long, healthy relationship between the two brands. Both companies have been working together since last year, so trust is already part of the foundation. Realistic Games vowed to provide ‘one game a quarter’ to Microgaming during their three-month exclusivity period before opening distribution to other partner networks.
Realistic Roulette is the first 3D table game from the brand, and it offers an immersive experience, real-life casino atmosphere, and multi-device compatibility.
Specifically, Realistic made use of the latest WebGL technology to come up with unique Roulette gameplay. The game features land-based ball spins so players can feel like they’re in front of an authentic table. Complementing the real-life experience is the 3D environment where players can customize their view of the action via phone, tablet, or desktop. For the actual gameplay, Realistic added the La Partage rule to the game. The rule states that players can recover their stake if the wheel lands on zero.
Realistic Games’ portfolio of table games are consistent with the developer’s selling point, so it’s very own Blackjack title is just as good as Realistic Roulette.
The game offers configurable payouts, 99.59% RTP, and multi-platform support. The traditional blackjack rule is present, but players can bet on up to 5 boxes at once (3 on the phone version). Players can split or double the first 2 cards on each chosen box.
