Playtech Live launches market-first L...

London, 12 October 2020 - Playtech, the world's leading gambling technology company, has brought its famous Age of the Gods progressive jackpot to Live Casino in Italy - making the company the first provider to offer Live Jackpot games in this key market.

Players will have the chance to win one of four progressive Age of the Gods jackpots on any spin - even a losing spin - via a mystery trigger when playing Age of the Gods Bonus Roulette or the Age of the Gods: God of Storms Live slot.

Bonus Roulette combines classic roulette play with a new themed bonus game. If a player successfully bets on the bonus position, this triggers a single line slot game featuring Age of the Gods characters, each representing a multiplier. Three matching symbols grants a multiplier of between 5 and 100x.

For slots fans, Live Slots offers a unique collective experience with 'community spins', where all participating players play a single game together. Featuring the evergreen God of Storms slot, a live studio-based host leads the game and provides commentary, designed to create a game show feel and bring slot play to life in a totally new way. Live Slots also support Free Spins bonusing - the first game in the live arena to do so.

Edo Haitin, Managing Director at Playtech Live Casino, comments: 'Everyone at Playtech Live is very proud to be offering a market-first Live Jackpot in Italy, reinforcing our position as a leading and innovative Live Casino supplier in this region. Italy is still the most valuable gambling market in Europe, so it's vital for us to be aligning our Live offering with other key territories, providing the best possible experience for players. Bringing the ever-popular and award-winning Age of the Gods brand to Live Casino will also create fantastic cross-sell opportunities for local operators keen to build on the success of the slots series.

'We're already seeing a fantastic reaction to both Bonus Roulette and God of Storms Live, with thousands of unique players enjoying the games during their first week of availability. This launch is a major milestone for Playtech in Italy, and demonstrates our commitment to creating a peerless experience for our partners in the region and their players.'
