Microgaming shakes up the table games vertical with an array of new releases developed by Switch Studios, an independent game studio developing content exclusively for the online gaming supplier.
Six new table game creations are scheduled to be released to Microgaming customers this December, demonstrating Switch Studios’ ambition to refresh the market with tailored, immersive games specifically optimised for mobile and desktop devices to powerful effect.
Following the release of European Blackjack earlier this year, Switch Studios have created a suite of blackjack variants. Atlantic City Blackjack, Vegas Strip Blackjack, Vegas Downtown Blackjack and Classic Blackjack will launch simultaneously on 4 December, with Vegas Single Deck Blackjack due for release a week later on 11 December. Each bespoke title gives a casino classic new life with a minimalist design that puts the action at the forefront.
Players can experience the silk-smooth design and stellar performance of these blackjack titles both on the move or from the comfort of their home. Built on a powerful new engine, each game features Standard Side Bets: Double Down, Insurance, and Split Hands, and combines fluid gameplay with exciting animations and sound for a thrilling casino experience.
Built on the same engine that powers Switch Studios’ suite of blackjack games, Baccarat similarly benefits from clean graphics, superior sound and an intuitive game interface. Due to launch on 11 December alongside Vegas Single Deck Blackjack, Baccarat is a multi-platform online table game that updates a timeless Eastern classic for a new generation of players by emphasising quality design and features.
In addition to a sleek design and strong colours, Baccarat features a revolutionary implementation of the game’s essential player-controlled Card Squeeze mechanic, letting players authentically peel, pull, rotate, and flip their cards, a customisable Scorecard feature that can be tailored by the player, Advanced Road Statistics and a Turbo Mode.
Players can enjoy the best of classic casino gaming in these modern and feature-rich table games, available to Microgaming operators this month.
European Roulette, European Blackjack, and American Roulette are also part of a full suite of exclusive table games developed for Microgaming by Switch Studios earlier this year.
James Buchanan, Director of Global Operations at Microgaming, comments: “We have further expanded our table games offering with the launch of six exciting new titles from Switch Studios, developed exclusively for Microgaming. Each of the six creations realises Switch Studios’ ambition to refresh the table games market with exciting casino experiences. The suite of blackjack games, along with the new baccarat title, are sure to set the standard for a new breed of table gaming.”
Tom David, Head of Studio at Switch Studios, adds: “We are excited to see Microgaming release six new games under the Switch Studios brand. Our latest blackjack and baccarat titles combine immersive gameplay with stunning visuals, to provide new and seasoned players with a thrilling, modern and enjoyable mobile-friendly gameplay experience both at home and on the go. Each game comes with a unique built-in feature allowing operators to put their own stamp on it, by applying their own branding to the felt colour, table logo stamp, card back colour and card back logo. We aim to bring innovation, style and the best selection of games to the online table gaming sector, and we look forward to creating more exclusive titles for Microgaming next year.”
