Necker Island powered by Quickfire
An announcement came this week that, thanks to a deal it has closed for the Quickfire platform from Microgaming, Virgin Games will see an exclusive new video slot game, Necker Island go live in its offering soon.
The 50-line slot, developed by Genesis Gaming Inc. uniquely for Virgin Games, features an interesting theme - Sir Richard Branson's own private atoll in the British Virgin Islands; it also includes an unusual graphical twist, introducing an extra row of symbols. Its features include a â€˜Locked Wild' free game series, as well as a bonus feature awarding the player 10 free games.
According to Warren Eloff, head of products at Virgin Games, â€œWe wanted to create a game exclusively for our Virgin Games players â€“ something that only we could offer and that truly summed up being part of the Virgin community. As such, we thought it would be ideally fitting to have a game created by Genesis Gaming that was themed around Sir Richard Branson's luxurious private island.
â€œAs an operator, offering our customers seamless game play is crucial, and as a Virgin company maintaining brand integrity is a must. Using Microgaming's QuickFire platform has delivered on both counts - offering both easy integration and allowing us to give our players a unique Virgin Games experience.â€
On behalf of Genesis Gaming, Inc. its CEO Steven Meistrich added: "It was exciting for our team to build a customized and branded video slot game consistent with the quality and fun users expect from the Virgin brand.
â€œWe are also pleased that Necker Island will be integrated to the Quickfire platform as we have a successful partnership already in place and are confident that it can maintain the optimal experience for Virgin players.â€
