BetSoft Launches New Birds Online Slot

BetSoft continues to be one of the leading online slots developers in the casino market, providing dozens of NZ gaming sites with a fantastic range of games. This month, the company has added yet another fun title to its collection with the launch of Birds!

Birds is a cute and quirky online slots game that offers players a fun online gaming experience. It is 25-payline game that has a Free Flights format. This means that all birds that are involved in winning combinations will fly away and new birds will take their places. This can lead players to triggering even more winning combinations in a row.

When four consecutive wins (or Free Flights) occur, the player will trigger the free spins round. There is no limit to the number of free spins that the player can receive. The round will keep going until the player can no longer hit anymore Free Flights.

All wins on this game can be gambled. After any win occurs, you can click the Double Up button to play a Heads or Tails game. If you guess correctly, then you’ll double your prize. You can continue to double up as long as you continue to guess correctly.

“The artists have cultivated an enjoyable, extremely friendly atmosphere in our new Slots3 title,” says Stephen Jackman of Betsoft. “This game is a true delight to the senses and introduces an innovative reel mechanic that we are proud to share with the iGaming industry and community of players.”

The new Birds online slot from BetSoft is now available at a wide range of online casinos across the web. Players will be able to access this fun and exciting new game from their tablets, smartphones or desktop computers.

Councils Mull Sinking Lid Policy

In New Zealand, politicians are getting tough on poker machines. In addition to the introduction of the new Harm Reduction Bill, city councils want to introduce sinking lid policies to further reduce the number of pokies in their jurisdictions. Auckland City Council is currently in the process of hammering out the details of its own sinking lid policy, which put strict limits on how many poker machines can exist in the area.

As it stands, local councillors have voted for the strictest option. They have requested that, in addition to reducing the number of poker machines over time, the sinking lid policy should also prohibit poker machines from being moved. This means that venues that have relocated cannot bring their pokies with them and venues cannot sell their machines to other locations.

One exception that councillors have supported is allowing clubs to merge, in order to ensure that they stay afloat. However, politicians believe that clubs with poker machines should not be able to move their games to clubs that do not have pokies – even if they merge. There is some debate over this provision, but many politicians are in support of it.

Grassroots Trust Suspension Goes Over Badly

The suspension of Grassroots Trust poker machines began last week, shutting down pokies in various pubs across the country. The suspension as meant to penalize the trust for failing to pay over $500 000 to the community, but pub owners state that the only people suffering will be them.

Pub owners have come forward to express their disappointment with the resolution to Grassroots Trusts’ transgression. Rather than punishing the trust itself, the government has taken profits away from pub owners. Without poker machines, many local pubs will lose business to casinos and other venues that have pokies in operation.

Moving forward, Grassroots Trust will be required to pay 40% of its profits to the community and 11% to pub owners. This means that Grassroots Trust will not have to pay any fines or undertake any punishment that may deter them from breaking gaming laws again in the future.

“There is simply no justice or common sense in this approach,” says Reg Hennessy, Vice President of Hospitality New Zealand. “Why are the trustees and managers not being fined?”

He believes that more consideration for pub owners should be shown in this situation. They are being forced to take the brunt of the punishment while Grassroots Trust pays no mind.

New ‘All For One’ Pokies from IGT

IGT has released a new pokies game called ‘All For One’, based on the popular literary and movie characters The Three Musketeers. It is a 5-reel 100-payline poker machine which will see its debut in a wide range of clubs and casinos across the country.

With 100 paylines, there are plenty of chances for players to win impressive cash prizes. It is a new format for IGT, as most of the company’s poker machines have anywhere from 25 to 50 paylines. It is a welcome change, however, and many players will enjoy this new, flexible format.

All For One also offers players a unique new bonus feature: progressive free spins. As the player spins the reels, they earn free spins, which are accumulated in a box at the top of the screen. When they hit the bonus feature, they are awarded the number of free spins they have earned during their gaming session.

This is something that has yet to be seen in poker machines, and it will likely garner a great deal of attention for All For One. We are certainly excited try out this new game, and we highly recommended that you do the same the next time you’re at a local casino.
