Vegas comes to Ladbrokes with Launch of New Gaming Platform
Ladbrokes.com has announced the launch of Ladbrokes Vegas, as part of a brand new partnership with Playtech.
Ladbrokes Vegas is the latest offering from the High Street gaming brand, offering players a diverse mix of online slots, table games, scratch cards and themed games on one, easy to navigate platform.
Visitors to Ladbrokes Vegas will find almost 70 online games, all of which can be tried for free in a ‘free play’ mode by both new and existing players. Around 30 additional games will also be available to Ladbrokes Mobile customers.
These games include 20 and 25 line play slot games, as well as a host of themed games from the world of sport, film and television.
The new Vegas platform includes popular games from Marvel Comics, which feature characters such as Spiderman, Wolverine, Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk and Captain America. Those games are complemented by games based on television classics such as “Little Britain,” “The Sopranos,” “The Pink Panther” and the hit movie “Rocky.”
The launch of Ladbrokes Vegas is the result of a new partnership between Ladbrokes and the online gaming services provider Playtech, with the new site the focus of a Ladbrokes television advertising campaign which will air in the UK from 26th August to 5th September 2013.
As part of the agreement, Ladbrokes will also have the option to add more of Playtech’s popular online games.
Speaking on the partnership, Ladbrokes CEO Richard Glynn said that the agreement with Playtech would allow the brand to “take a considerable step forward” in its digital ambitions.
Shay Segev, COO of Playtech, added, “We are very happy to commence the migration of Ladbrokes and offer it the Games Tab.
“Not only can operators see the entire player experience across all platforms and games, they can also use consumer behaviour analytics to maximise player value. This definitely indicates the future of online gaming.”
The Light from the TV Shows: A Chat with Michael Dorn (‘Star Trek: The Next Generation’)
Michael Dorn may have come to be known best for his work as Worf, the most famous Klingon in the ‘Star Trek’ universe, but his acting career was already off and running well before he found his way onto the bridge of the U.S.S. Enterprise. Bullz-Eye had a chance to chat with Dorn in connection with the Blu-ray release of ‘Star trek: The Next Generation – The Complete Fourth Season,’ and he discussed some of his pre-’Trek’ roles, including working with Bruce Jenner and Sylvester Stallone, in addition to revisiting his work as Worf and commenting on how things are going with the ‘Captain Worf’ series he’s been hoping to make
Bullz-Eye: So how have you been enjoying seeing the ‘Next Generation’ episodes on Blu-ray?
Michael Dorn: Well, I haven’t seen this season’s yet, but the other ones have looked great. Just beautiful.
BE: When they first started rolling them out, I was really rather startled by the difference. I knew it’d look better, but it never occurred to me that it’d be quite that substantial.
MD: Yeah, exactly. I mean, it’s one of those things that makes you realize just how much technology and other things have changed. When we were doing our show in the late ‘80s and early ‘90s, we looked at the original series and we were, like, “Ah, we’re so far ahead of that!” And now we look at our show side by side, and it’s, like, “Oh, my God…” [Laughs.] Technology has just grown by leaps and bounds. But it looks spectacular.
