It has been a big month for news and the latest is that Playtech have bought over the software developer Eyecon. This has some lasting effects for players on their sites and you may just be starting to see these coming in already!
What Does This Mean For Bingo Players?
If you’re a player on a Playtech site then this bingo news is wholly positive, as it means you’ll have lots of new slots to test out in the near future. The £50 million merger means that the 70 Eyecon games that currently exist will be added into the Playtech catalogue as time goes on.
Virtue Fusion sites will also feel the benefit of these added games, as this platform is also owned by Playtech. We’re always happy to see new games come to our favourite sites, especially ones as well regarded as Eyecon slots. These games are smash hits and constitute some of the most sought after slots on the internet.
The Eyecon team will remain within Playtech, producing more new games with the added pooled resources. This means that we may see more of their unique style of games coming onto the market at a much faster rate than ever before. Their CEO will also remain in place for a few years to make sure everything goes smoothly and few jobs are disrupted.
This should be positive for all involved, as we’ll gain access to these existing games on new sites and more might come along to join them too. Sites like Mecca Bingo and Gala Bingo will be vastly improved by these new games being added into their library. It will also mean that their mobile players will have more to choose from too, as Eyecon games are generally optimised for mobile use.
What Eyecon Games Can We Expect To See On Playtech Sites?
It seems that the entire Eyecon catalogue will be coming to these sites, though they may be phased in rather than be added all at once. There are a few of these games that are more popular than others, so we’re predicting that these will be the first to be added:
Fluffy Favourites – This is the smash hit slot game that rocked the internet and got loads of bingo players into slots for the first time. This cute slot game has free spins and bonus rounds, making it a priority to get online.
Fluffy Too – Riding on the popularity of the first game, this slot is equally as popular among players and boasts the bonus features that make it exciting. This revamped the Fluffy theme and added in some new elements to boot.
Sugar Train – This sweet themed slot game is known for having excellent payouts, thanks to all of the additional features within it. It’s more than just a pretty face, though the reels are some of the sweetest that we’ve seen.
Shaman’s Dream – This game forms the basis of many welcome offers, as it’s highly popular with fans. The theme is a Native American extravaganza, with feathers, spirit animals and shamans decorating the reels.
Piggy Payout – The image of this little pig making a break from the farm is one that captured the attention of many. The special features, wild symbols and free spins make this game stand out from the crowd for sure.
As we’ve mentioned, there are more than 70 of these games within the Eyecon portfolio so they may take some time to be implemented across all of the Playtech and Virtue Fusion sites.
We’re waiting with bated breath for these games to come to even more sites, as they’re always fun to have a few spins on.
