Online casino players have never before had such rich pickings when it comes to choosing where to play and which games. No single site illustrates this better than the groundbreaking VideoSlots.co.uk, whose online platform just released its 2000th game. It broke a world record in the process but shows no signs of stopping there!
On June 5 2017, VideoSlots.co.uk became the first casino in the history of the internet to have 2,000 live casino games available to play. The game which pushed the site over the threshold was the adventurous Three Musketeers slot.
The game's tagline may be 'All for one and one for all', but it's as competitive and adrenaline-pumping as any other. It features five reels, 40 paylines and stake levels up to 500.00 per spin. With a jackpot up to 300 times your line bet, it’s a high-profile game that does VideoSlots proud.
The game was created by Red Tiger Software, with VideoSlots obtaining exclusive rights to release it before it was available anywhere else. The record-breaking event and its exclusive content reflects VideoSlots’ goal of being a leading online casino destination, said the company’s Chief Executive Alexander Stevendahl:
"Going live with our 2,000th slot is an incredible landmark for us, as we continue to strive for the most complete range of premium slots on the market."
Adding to his earlier statement, Stevendahl noted that:
"Our approach is unique in that we offer games based on demand from our players, as opposed to suppliers' wishes. This ‘by the players for the players’ philosophy has helped create one of the most social, innovative and high-quality casinos on the market."
This consumer-led approach to gaming is aided by VideoSlots' own in-house software development team, which enables it to bypass third party suppliers and produce games in response to consumer demand.
The company does also work with leading names in the casino world like Net Entertainment, Microgaming and Yggdrasil to name a few. The mix of in-house and third party software helped the website reach the 2,000 title mark, and makes for a wide choice of content for players.
The record-breaking 2,000 game marker rides on the back of an already impressive start to 2017 in terms of player numbers, retention and revenue for VideoSlots. In fact, figures released show that the brand experienced a 106% increase in year-on-year regular gamer numbers during the first three months of 2017 alone.
Unsurprisingly, this also saw revenue rise by nearly 80%, with a 100% increase in player deposits. The success of the brand has attracted industry recognition, with four nominations for the EGR Operator Marketing and Innovation Awards.
The nominations were for best Casino Marketing Campaign, Innovations in Casino, Innovations in Social Casino and Social Marketing Campaign. Although the brand didn't win an award at the event held on June 6 at The Hurlingham Club in London, being short-listed for multiple categories is nothing to be sniffed at.
As well as the recent Three Musketeers campaign, the brand's other marketing exploits include the innovative social slots game called Battle of Slots. The concept pitches gamers against each other while slot gaming, leading to bigger jackpots and a distinct poker-esque feeling.
Additionally, VideoSlots has signed deals with high-end gaming vendors such as StakeLogic, Realistic Games and AMANET, the online gaming wing of AMATIC. Such moves further illustrate the vision to make VideoSlots.co.uk one of the leading portals for global gamers, with a game volume comparable to a Las Vegas casino.
Ultimately, while pure gaming volume doesn't guarantee satisfaction, VideoSlots is a brand intent on quality and gaming innovation. Other online casinos will be keen to see if a high number of games corresponds to increased player pull and expenditure.
Expect to see more records being broken by gaming sites during 2017 and into next year. If you'd like to see what 2000 casino game options all in one place looks like, head over to VideoSlots.co.uk now and receive a generous welcome bonus sure to get you started on all those games!
